  1. Thank you very much. I'm glad you like my traditional artworks. ^^ I plan on doing more.
  2. The bees that can ruin your day if you get too close to their hive.
  3. I also have a DS Halloween in the works though they are all Mini pictures.
  4. Sorry for the really long wait everyone here's the painting finally complete.
  5. Half my brushes got destroyed had to go out and buy new ones :/

  6. Here's part 2 though for a better view go to my DA http://fullmetaldevil.deviantart.com/art/Wilson-Tutorial-part-2-474005602
  7. A Wilson painting tutorial I hope you guys enjoy especially since I had to divide it into quite a few parts so here's part 1. The full sized image is on my Deviant art. http://fullmetaldevil.deviantart.com/art/Wilson-Tutorial-part-1-471212226
  8. Feeling better and planning on getting back to work ^^

  9. Sorry for the long delay everyone I was out due to family and health reasons. I'm presently working on a full sized painting of Wilson and am releasing a tutorial to accompany it.
  10. The aftermath of a Tim Burton movie marathon. For kicks I drew Wilson in a similar style to how various characters in Tim Burton's stop animation films look. The drawing itself is simple but since I'm new to Paint tool Sai I'm still trying to figure out some things but for the most part I think I did ok. *edit* retouched up on some things.
  11. That face is my reaction to sunlight in the morning and to anyone whom thinks they are trying to wake me up. Nice lineart by the way.
  12. Many many apologies for the long delay but finally here it is the colored version of the infamous Deerclops. This guy gave me a new look on the phrase "time consuming". it's 100% water color paints and lots of patience. His coloring and overall look with based off deer (in terms of antlers) and Caribou (in terms of fur texture). The skull shape is your standard deer skull except I made the forehead larger to support the larger single eye socket. The antlers are deer rather then caribou because caribou have like a slight fuzz on the antlers unlike deer (though is actuality it would have a fuzz on the antlers due to the cold climate). Fur wise I followed the standard pattern of the Caribou having long fur under the neck sort of like a strange beard, I only took that and followed it through to the under belly. The fur around the neck and part of the back is long sort of like a mane (in a way) while the fur on the lower back is shorter. Since the game model is grey I had a harder then hell time finding a animal that was grey and I only found a few photos of a grey colored caribou. Actual deer are mostly brown with some having a slight greyish hue. The Background was a chore and a half within itself. I actually repainted the background twice, the first nearly throwing a fit over and the second settling down some and starting over. The snow in the image is lighter where the creature is mostly cause the way I set up the images was like a "quick snowfall". The snow it heavier on the mountains and reduces to a bit of dusting here and there where the animal is. When I was painting the background we had a rain storm which attributed to the color of the clouds being so dark and menacing. all in all it turned out ok. *edit* This is a updated photo of the Deerclops. I needed to make a few changes and hope you all enjoy. If you see anything let me know ^^
  13. you and me both. I get that D.S is done in a cartoony style but there is also a grim reality that follows the characters and that anything and everything can result in injury or potential death. I tried to bring out that grim reality especially in the project my sister wrote and I illustrated the "Our Twisted World" project. I'm flattered, however I can't sell the painting cause then I'd be breaking a bunch of laws. I do the images out of fun and to show my love for the game. If you want a copy of the paintings you can just copy it strait to your computer. I have no ownership of anything D.S related so the art is free for everyone to enjoy. ^^
  14. On a different note to all I'm gonna release the original unedited version of the "Our Twisted World" project since all the pages are here
  15. XD I've never worked with charcoal so I'm rather unfamiliar with it but in terms of materials this is a list of what I work with. 64 different shades/color paints Crayola packs of crayons and color pencils (ranging from 12-24 packs) Kuretake Clean Color markers (about 15 of them) 3 different sized ink pens (.2mm to .5mm) (labeled on package XS and S) pencil wise personal preference .5 or .7 Eraser: Standard Plastic Eraser (rubber has a horrible tendency of smearing) Paper wise I'm using anywhere from the standard 8 1/2 X 11 copy paper to 11 X 14 Mixed media think paper. (I choose different types of paper for different type of drawings mostly cause of thickness of paper.)
  16. Well I try to be careful with cheap brushes cause most of the time that is the only thing I can afford. I usually make it a point to be careful with any works regardless of the expense of the materials in use be it cheap or expensive. While expensive materials tend to make people a bit more conscious about the level of skill or time they put into a work to make it worthwhile sometimes the cheapest things can at times yield the best results. Though I think any person should be careful with materials cause then at a point it's considered wasting. Since I rarely am able to buy paints (not very good sales all that often) I tend to be very choosy about what I paint and what I use color pencil or any other material to color. What I myself have noticed is that certain types of paints are best for certain things. The more more expensive liquid paints are best for bold and sharp coloring while the cheap solid (add in your own water) paints tend to great for soft coloring. Though I more of the opinion of work within your budget, do not fret over what you can't afford, and to do the best you can with what you have.
  17. Yeah I usually update my art binder once every 6 months or so taking older works out and only leaving in the newer ones while moving the older ones into another binder for storage. Yeah and I know what you mean about ideas. I got tons of them but when I get that "creative train" rolling I have no time and when I do have the time I can't seem to start the locomotive. I only have 1 art store and it's a fair size. The paint section is ok but not the greatest, I actually own more varieties of colors in comparison to the store. Though when it comes to products even the cheapest of materials can create spectacular pictures if you know how to use it. Personally I think that all those over priced brushes and materials are for bragging more then anything else. I've taken cheap 5 packs of brushes for $4.99 or $5.99 and have gotten the effects I wanted without spending $9.00+ on just 1 brush. The same can be said about paint. You can take a cheap $0.99 12 color paint set and do so much with it. While it is partially true that the tools help make the work but it's the skill of the workman that truly makes it come alive. XD I won't starve just yet!
  18. Well when you look at how Wilson is originally drawn for the opening trailer and the rest of the game his body is consistent of 2 ovals. 1 for the head and a semi-long slender oval for his body. His arms and legs are almost sticks except for the little rectangles used for the sleeves. In a way Wilson is originally drawn like a stick figure but with more volume to him. Clothing wise I usually study how clothes look on me and where all the creases are when in motion. Drawing clothes can be both simple and tricky depending on the style of clothes. I say keep drawing and improve the best you can as you go. I never took any formal art classes so I try to study my surroundings as much as I can . Yeah I was forbidden mostly cause of parental fear of my coloring the house (even though I was a very well behaved child). I think all of us see the flaws in our work after completion. I've done several drawing that I can't stand to release cause I see flaws in them. Most of my drawings since it's a material item are stored in a giant binder (now 2 binders) that I sometimes use for character reference if I'm too lazy to turn on my computer. Since I have a job I always set aside money for supplies but before I did odd jobs to make enough money to buy supplies and even then I waited for sales cause water color paint adds up in price and since my local store doesn't carry everything I need I have to buy more then needed and mix them. My house was a friggen zoo. I had some animals that were from other countries that I got in exotic pet stores or from friends from other states.
  19. My art started out with mostly line art along with crayon and marker, and digital (really crappy Digital) mostly because I was actually forbidden to use watercolor. After some convincing and work I finally got back into it and have been doing it since. Though I've also gotten into the habit of mixing media by having different sections of a image done with different materials. By that's I've created some nice effects. I'm a bit of a perfectionist as well I refuse to look at my older works and can't understand why people still like them. I mostly have my dog I used to have lizards but 1 died of old age and the other due to an illness. Before I use to have my lizards bother me with their tantrums of wanting attention. Though when it comes to art I've only sold 2 and that was when I was in school cause most of my friends can vouch I don't like parting with my works much.
  20. All my traditional art is mostly watercolor paints. Usually I try to state what made the images when I release them. Yeah for me at times when I get the train of thought on full speed ahead here comes my "blow of the rail way" mother with some task she is demanding for me to do and my train get's blown up. :/ She is one of the largest obstacles to my artwork not counting my dog.
  21. Yeah I've been really slow art wise because of having a unpredictable job. I don't get to pick my hours so some days I'm early morning other days I'm closing. So I try to make the most of the "free" time I get. The Spider queen sketch was done in about 10-15 minutes mostly because I've drawn her several times and knew what I was doing for in the picture. The Deerclops took 20-30 mostly due to research and trying to figure out how a semi-realistic version in form would work. Though the most of the time was spent on figuring out his pose. My sister can vouch I'm extremely picky about my drawings and try to do the best I can despite not having any formal art education. Background wise the spider queen is the only one that has no background. The Deerclops has a background and I actually had to repaint it because I hated the original background. In terms of completion the Deerclops is about 45% done.
  22. yeah I think hands, feet, the other eye, and backgrounds are every artists bane of existence. As it is since I started painting the deerclops I already am having a internal war as to how the background should work out.
