Default July/Aug - normal - vedic kings

Ok, this is going to be fun

Story,

There are two brothers. One is Todd a trouble maker and the other Sam a devoted Christian. Sam is always trying to help his bother stay out of trouble, which is by trying to convert him to Christianity, by saying things like you are going to hell if you don't accept Jesus in to his heart!. Todd just doesn't give a shit about life, this made Sam very mad at him. So one night Sam has this dream about God speaking to him, saying to stop his bother at all cost, which in this case is to end one good soul to save another bad soul! So he kills himself in the image of Jesus, to put shock into his bother, so that Todd would fear the Lord (life).

P.S. I'm not a Christian.

Skeksi,

Vedic...I've seen some ad's for a 3d design school out there in OREGON...have you ever gone there? I forget the name off hand but I guess its a pretty nice school...

you seem to have the skills....

Cracks me up how many programs we use to get a job done I know I use pad and architects pencil to do quick sketches...then I scan it into Corel Paint....to trace out a clean drawing...then into photoshop.... :p or vice versa depending on what I need to do... I really have to work on my 2d...you seem to have a good grasp on that too. Nice detail. You have an Anime/Manga, Comic book style. I like it

Skeksi,

I'm not sure what design school that would be. I've been to the UOF once, took a 3 month class on basic drawing, which I didn't get to much out of. The teacher even ask me I thought that I have learned anything, as she that I was skilled.

Yeah that are may programs get a job done anymore these days. I just get Corel Paint 8 and it seems really cool, all the paint tools it has! But photoshop is my baby, i've be using ps for 10 years.

I've grow up reading comic books, so I learn from them mostly, like the spawn comic, I love Todds style, its awesome. I also learn how to draw characters looking at Jim Lee's X-Man and WildCat.

Anyways heres is a drawing I did about a year and a half ago. Its a Leagcy of Kain fan art. I haven't done much drawings in the last 3 years do to maya:p But I mostly draw concepts and texture anymore for my 3d stuff.

fan art

For those of you interested in learning "comic book" style digital coloring I have to recommend the training CDs from Brian Haberlain. They're older (PS 5/6) but still applicable and are a great insight into how this is done. He is not a great speaker, but you can gain alot just watching along. http://www.digitalarttutorials.com/

Although targeted toward aspiring comic colorist, the techniques are defintely transferrable to creating textures for 3d applications. There are snippets of each tutorial on the above link.

Vedic, cool sketch. I think you may have to play with effects to pull this look off... look forward to the WIPs on this.
