02-12-2009, 01:57 AM
:) Nice I'll take my place too then!
02-12-2009, 01:14 PM
sweet I'm glad you in this one to washka. I should have some concept up later today. :D
P.S. Pig do fly, because it snowing in Dallas TX today and for those who live in Dallas knows that this is sweet.:D
02-12-2009, 03:20 PM
All righty then, here is my fist concept idea. :D
02-12-2009, 04:26 PM
is it true that people in Dallas have no idea how to drive in the snow and that it doesn't matter because if it snows in the morning, its gone by noon.
02-12-2009, 04:38 PM
Let me just say, that is so true, Becuase before it stop snowing it was thick, now about and hour after it stop, It do not look like it even snow. :D I took a vedio and pic if any one want to see what i mean. :D
P.S. snow, rain, or sunny day, we can't drive anyways. :haha::haha::haha:
02-12-2009, 06:35 PM
It always snows during nuclear winter, everybody know that...
Wow I can feel some nice inspiration already, some hot stuff is coming here.
I bet a virtual fake coffee it's a chick!
02-12-2009, 07:06 PM
You win the coffee. Yes a chick all the way on this one.
03-12-2009, 09:45 AM
what's the idea for this one? and what's the background?
03-12-2009, 02:58 PM
u r a better splotcher than me :D
03-12-2009, 05:42 PM
Hmm, nice coffee, I added two sugars.
+1 for the master splotcher but he already got a nice composition, dynamic lines are there, lightning is quite defined and there is already an interesting atmosphere/colors.
When I see your sketch, I got some big inspiration, the image is already there, now it's the big work.
The background could have been some kind of forest and ruins, piece of metal or weapons, cables, some kind of hot jungle atmosphere.
That was my first idea because I was thinking the black center piece was the silhouette of a tree, just in the back of the girl, but I was wrong.
In fact those are skyscrapers burning in flames (flames are on the side) and the little points are the windows, did I guessed right? :D
03-12-2009, 06:34 PM
Washka man your good... at guessing.
those are skyscrapers in the back ground burning, also in the forground is a somewhat like headstone, becuase she take refuge in a gothic church, witch I try to give hint about it with the door on the rigth of her (the arc like door) I still have much work to do trust me. I should start working with line work and refence here today. I really want to make this a personal best, I have never gone realistic with my digital painting, mostly because I love comic and line art more. but that what this contest are for to push us. i'n going to ref guns, churches, fire, and any thing that comes to mind. :D
03-12-2009, 09:45 PM
good start mc, is that the moon in the background?, nice mood man
03-12-2009, 09:55 PM
Realistic painting is some real p*** in the ***, but it's worth to try because you learn a lot.
Hey vnmribaya, are you on too? I'm kinda sure the theme will fit your style, no?
Was here to ask in secret Mr C if I can join the Splotcher clan (only accessible to master splotcher). I made my test entry on my thread, I know my splotch skill doesn't fit the one of da big master, Mr C (chuut the name is secret), but I'm making my request full of humility, please accept me on it, I will polish my splotch skills, I swear!
03-12-2009, 10:59 PM
vnmribaya- Yeah that the Big moon. :D
Washka- come join the fun. as long as you swear. :haha:
05-12-2009, 06:14 PM
hmm....it sounds me interesting, I expect more! :)
05-12-2009, 09:34 PM
well here is my last sploch concept. LOL:haha:
I'll have a full Line art done, inked and posted tomorrow. :D
05-12-2009, 10:11 PM
M_Cederstrom looking great so far. Reminds me of old anime films... And thanks for the get well wishes. I'm 95% better.
06-12-2009, 12:04 PM
This other one's got a good mood too, it'll be hard to choose.
06-12-2009, 06:39 PM
Thanks Zanman and Washka, I am going anime ,kinda. i decided to just stick with my line art comic style. :D so here is the update for today. let me know what ya'll think. I tried to me a little risky and also try to make the building look unstable. :D
BigTeo - if you see this let me know if i have to change the title and to "minor nudity" to it. :D
06-12-2009, 06:54 PM
love the style and viewpoint! keep up the good work.
06-12-2009, 09:00 PM
Line art is fun too :)
Some constructives comments:
Maybe there is some difference between the lenght of her shin? Care also with the stairs because the perspective is not the same one as the one of the buildings, maybe you should erase those stairs.
07-12-2009, 12:42 AM
Thanks Chris. :D I really like doing line art or comic. :D
Thanks Washka. I have some time to really work on this one. :D
In the drawing there is two perspectives one is the fore ground which is the grass hill, cross, stairs, soldier and the second is the back ground with the city, moon. I have also finish the flats. So right know I'm just adjusting them until i get what i like. I'm change thing like skin color, sky, moon, and the dress. i have also did some correction with the line. I'll also take out the stair to see how it looks with out it a little later.
More to come. :D
as of right now I like the bottom two on the first image (the 4 up post ) and my fave is the one with the white hair. what do ya'll guy think. :D
thanks BigTeo for the edit to the title
07-12-2009, 01:55 AM
07-12-2009, 03:56 PM
i do like the look and feel of it.
how are doing this, pencil scanned or full digital. wch app is it?
and is there any particular reason for the nudity?
i believe her face is quiet squarish.
though ur perspective is rocking.
07-12-2009, 06:28 PM
This is looking good so far. I think the perspective is OK. It gives the impression that she is up on a hill with the city down below, which is probably what you were going for.
I like the orange hair better than white. I think it just stands out better against the blue in the background.
07-12-2009, 07:29 PM
Hey M! Sounds good as a start, the first attempt was becoming impressive, pretty unusual style coming from you! But do what you are most comfortable with for now, but try to do some new approaches, it always adds exeprience =D
So, the atmosphere is getting good, liked the buildings you did...as an architecture student, I suggest you to search about Italian futurism, I think it would fit very nicely with your work! =D
I don't know if I'll have enough time to make something, so...be ready to receive lots of comments from me! hehe
Keep it up!
07-12-2009, 11:55 PM
Aby - Thanks :) well the line art is finish with a ink pen, but before in ink it, most of the time I'll pencil it first. Then I scan it in at 300 dpi in gray scale, i never do it in black and white because I'll lost some of the line work and detail. Once i have finish scan it The rest is done in Photoshop with my Tablet. :D
as for the nudity, why I add in was, to add a little sexiness to the drawing but I'm think of taking it out, I'm not sure yet. :D
by the way get your but in this challenge. :evil:
TimWinkelman - Yeah that the idea i was trying to get. you have a good point about the orange hair standing out better with the back ground. Thanks. :smug:
Resenhista - dude I'm sad you might not make it, it always fun to have you join the Challenges. yeah the first two where out of my comfort zone, I kinda did those out of fun, but also to work up an idea. :D thanks for the suggestion about Italian Futurism , that sound like a sweet idea trust me I'll look in to that.
o make sure you bring lot of comment, i can't get enough. :D
Later guy and really thanks to the comment. :D
08-12-2009, 10:18 AM
I am REALLY liking this scene. The buildings and the color choices kick ass. As for the nudity, i like the butt, but a cutout for the boob? eh...
her left butt cheek is super small compared to her left thigh size, also her face seems a little small... or something, idk. I really like what you got going here, keep it up.
08-12-2009, 10:52 AM
Thank Omag. I think i well fix the boob then.
likin the line art and crazy perspectives man. :)

08-12-2009, 10:20 PM

09-12-2009, 11:31 PM
Hey guy thanks for the comment I have an up date to post, I didn't get far on this one, i had the day off but my wife had me go every where today:hurt:. I Promise a better update next time:shout:. :D I still have a lot of rework to do on this thing.
Later guy. :)
10-12-2009, 12:51 AM
I'm liking the feel of depth you got going on.
10-12-2009, 01:38 AM
Thanks big toe. :D
10-12-2009, 07:09 AM
mr.m. youve improved a lot since the last time i saw your work :)
I have a few crits. Im not sure if you already know, but if u hold shift in photoshop and draw you can draw straight lines. sme of the building elements look a bit wonky to me, not sure if you were going for that or not. also i kw its still early but i would suggest bleeding some of that light from you strong purple sky into your environment.
super cool work otherwise and i enjoyed looking around the pic and enjoying the details.
10-12-2009, 02:16 PM
Thanks Freaky... Yeah i did that to try to make the building look unstable i didnt want them to look perfect. I make sure to add that bleed as well. :D
10-12-2009, 06:23 PM
just as well; I love the colors, composition of the picture is really good.
10-12-2009, 09:18 PM
It's getting better, agree with depth (Big T), and with light's color (Freekybevis).
Maybe some more work on hand and gun?
And talking about birds, nobody is on the city, so no light is on, total desolation, nice, I like it.
But maybe just one little light is on (a survivor?), far far away on the background? There is some smoke there so maybe one of the window got a light on?
That's for the bird! :D
10-12-2009, 09:25 PM
lookin good. i like the color choices
11-12-2009, 02:51 PM
Yeah i should beff up the gun and i should have timd to work on it too night. Thanks guy. Im also like how this turning out. :D
16-12-2009, 03:50 PM
hey guy just a small update. :D o the big pic is not on the 4 up post. at this point I'm really going slow and taking my time. :D i have a lot of lighting and direction in this one that i want to put in.
17-12-2009, 02:38 PM
That comic book style is nice dude, I really like the background! And you were very happy when choosing the colors =D
Keep it going!
17-12-2009, 08:44 PM
I want to bet that you like colors. :)
18-12-2009, 12:32 AM
I love color :haha: but a year ago it was a different story. :) go check out my study threat and that my prof. :haha: thanks guys I'm really having fun with this one. :D
19-12-2009, 11:19 PM
