Dino Study

Two recent digital line works. Still keeping with the red that was recommended to me by pointclickjam. I’ve got pen drawings to upload also – from Hamilton 150th birthday and sitting at my desk.

Enjoy these work works –

spikdinoyz-line

 

Continued with the Ramparts theme in this piece with drawing of the walls, windows, and ocean. I added some land in the horozin line. A merge of humanold dino and monsters were drawn. I added a spiky dragon like tail. Insect type features are also present.

One really neat trick with using KDE desktop environment is that I can make windows fully transparent. I normally keep window transparency to 80%. This makes it easy to see whats under my current window. My gimp is set to 80% opacity and in the background window is a google search for dinosaur skeletons.

I’m not tracing but doing what I normally do and observe with reference. I worked quickly, getting down the shape for each dino. I wasn’t really fussed with how good the line looked, and just focused on the shape.

Some of the line doesn’t look too bad.

Recent digital works completed in GIMP.

Lately I have been focusing on the line layer and ignoring the black and white/colour tonal layers. The line layer is usually the idea generation layer and the black and white/colour tonal layers just build upon kill abe-line

 

Line layer. Reference was a screenshot from Oddworld: Abes Odyssey.

Grayscale tonal layer. I am happy with the texture and alive feeling that the scrap produces.

Colour. Mixed things up a bit by using the blue for the ground instead of the background. Red is used for the background instead. Happy with the yellow of the scrap, especially with the light and dark tones.

robot bug trex

The following works were completed last week and during the weekend. It is all red line. The themes are dinos, bugs, landscape, and robots.

BBJ08 Bugs

The theme for BaconGameJam08 is Millions Of Them.

An excellent theme. Very open and wide with an interesting keyword – millions.

I was at my Mothers place when the them announced. I had a team (2 other programmers) but had problems commuacting with them so I gave up for the afternoon and just focused on helping Mother.

I did talk to my sister about the theme. My first thought was bugs and beetle.

Once I got home I started on digital painting of weird bugs.

Next step is 3d.
BBJ08-LINE-BUG2

Ideas for the bugs theme. Lots of bugsBBJ08-LINE-BUGLarge bug in the middle is the main. I love the headpiece attached to their head. I watched Bobs Burgers with my sister and drew several characters. These will likely not be turned into 3d models, rather focus on the more bug like characters.

 

 

 

LD48 – connected worlds concept art

Hello.
Been awile since an update.
Lost my tablet pen but found it again, and it’s taken me a bit to get back into digital painting since then.
I have been busy with drawing and painting with children. Felt pens, pencil, oil pastel, and poster paint has been the medium of choice.
Here are digital painting s I created today for Ludum Dare. The theme is connected worlds.
I’m looking at creating an open world mmo-like zone. Models will be created tonight and I’ll put everything together in Unity3d on Sunday.

Portrait I painted of Reddit user – syntheticturtle.

This was from redditgetsdrawn.

I’ve started working on another game – this time for the Peace, Love and Jam. It starts next weekend but I’m going to just work on it during the weekend since I don’t have time during the week.

I’ve been setting up an easel at Fairfield Community Centre to get the after-school kids to do some art. It’s great – got a minute of six year olds, up to twelve. I’ll make another post in the future with some of these images (been taking photos on my phone).

Enjoy this digital painting, three layer, line, gray, and color.

ted in space

Monday morning was spent digital painting in MyPaint and GIMP – “Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein IN SPACE”.

This is going to be my next game in Unity – extending on from Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein

Here is the line (mypaint), grayscale (GIMP), and color (GIMP) works.

Spent the day on Saturday putting together Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein in Unity3d. It’s three scenes linked together with a next button. If you want to play it – check it out on GameJolt

I’ve continued the game dev thing after releasing this – back into MyPaint for digital sketching.

Epic Jam is a jam I noticed that I wouldn’t mind making something for. It’s unique in the fact that subthemes are added as the jam happens. The main theme is – First Time.

I’ve continued some Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein drawings/paintings, and it would do me good to work on Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein further.

Anyway, here’s some MyPaint digital line, followed by a grayscale paintover in GIMP. Next is to take this art into Blender.

Giants Towers

Took a pastel work from Whaihanga into GIMP and performed a line, grayscale, and color traceover. It has been a very long time since I have done this – not since I have my old Medium Wacom tablet. The small tablet handles the line trace fine.
Anyway, one of the main reasons why I did this was for concept house designs to model out in 3d. It’s always easier to produce 2d works first to get a feeling into what I want to create.
And without further ado. Enjoy –
warning: there be giants.
