    A3 - Walter White - Took about 2 hours - first hour sketching - second hour block colouring with the 3 lightest shades made up (why they are scruffy!, done using pro-markers (as usual)

    Looking good mate, really like the area by the nose - seems to have a nice textured effect, also the strokes are well directioned (that a word?) - mine are all over the shop.

    Get a few really dark tones in if you can - with a heavy 6/7/8b if you have one - should make the stripes pop out.

    For the next one an eye is always good practice (lost count of how many of those I've done!).

    Hey all

    I'm actually quite proud this time. I got an email from 3D total asking me to submit cleetus to their excellence award gallery and it made the front page of the site. Normally I don't boast but it's taken 6 years to get good enough to make it onto that gallery. These are the guys that make a lot of books for print.

    Check it out:

    Nice one mate, you deserve it - some fantastic work there.

    Yeah, keeping the 4b sharp & pressing down hard should make it pretty close to a black tone - for that style the high contrasts needs the dark tones for the detail to pop out - I mean, for example - if you look at the Walter White one about - it's really basic & scrappy - just the blacks kinda in the right place which makes the rest automatically fit - your eyes do most of the work :), kinda the same if you do the hard black tones on the pencil with the tiger say.

    Thanks & thanks.

    Walter White looks spot on.

    The work on that site is incredible like most of these communities, scary how much it has changed in the last 6 years.

    Quick ninja edit - had to fix the eye (Was wrong) - that's closer to the intended picture.

    Cheers mate,

    Not done any vector art before, should learn really - will def give it a bash.

    Thanks :) - yeah, it's incredibly how high the standard is nowadays - makes me feel like an ultimate amateur!.

    Had to edit his eye (As above) was slightly ****-eyed lol (Was looking too close white doing it, didn't notice till I looked at a distance!)

    Ok, now I'm done...., (finished the eyes off as they were still not quite right)

    Btw, where do you guys get your materials from?, currently using Amazon (usually a decent price, but not on everything) or Hobby-craft (stupidly overpriced) - would be great to find a chain which is a bit more reasonably priced for pro-markers/thick bleed proof paper or acrylics.

    Just a quick 20min Japanese style tattoo sketch (based off a few references), thinking of learning the genre... <ponders>

    TheMeekon & Lance both do 3d sculpting (if that's what you mean!) - excellent ones too!.

    Traditional Sculpting, so by hand and not with a computer.

    Never done any traditional sculpting myself, although it's something I'd wish to try :)

    Nice one Meekon, well done on the 3DTotal exposure! Well deserved the sculpt is great :D

    I've managed to net myself an art position now I've graduated. I went to 3 interviews and got 3 offers ^^ Decided to take the one most local and cannot wait to start later this month >:D

    Some recent stuff from me (some still WIP).

    The character I'm creating for a 'Polycount' contest still a WIP:-
    The HP sculpt

    The low poly

    and some ZBrush practice...

    Wow, amazing improvement! I'd be interested to know what technique you used to render the practice head. What matcap is it? Congrats on the job, you've worked extremely hard.

    Thanks Meekon.

    The MatCap is SkinShade4. As for the render it's pretty much default settings with my own lightcap. I rendered a standard, SSS, AO, Shadow and Mask then layered them in photoshop and tweaked their opacity individually.
