Oh hey, really suprising myself by going B&W first.  I must have tone problems, because this one's coming out nicely! :)

Thinking aloud

So here are some more sketches and studies I've done.  I'm toying around with the idea of making the chef a really posh looking guy or gal.  Everyone paints orcs filthy and I wanted to get that across using only his possessions, the character itself will carry a certain flair (I hope).  Hope you all like the sketches so far!  More to come!

Dark Elf Ballista

With time constraints I couldn't focus too heavily on design, but I'm really happy with the layout even if I(we) can see the blaring mistakes, it works well :)

Peasants redone

I totally wasn't happy with the last result especially since it wouldn't scale well.

Here's the new one:

Here are some quick mock ups I did of the in game tiles:

(These are about actual size)

Peasants Rendered.

I'm wondering if I should push the detail further...

Friday, March 30, 2012

Good day...PEASANT!

Okay seriously, 3 figures in one drawing in perspective...The anatomy was a nightmare.
Can't wait for clean up and colours.  I really do hope I can pull this off! :D

Schoolism With Andrew Hou

It's friday, and time to hand in, I finished, learned a lot and discovered photoshop hates colour during exporting!

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Wednesday Update!

ARRRGH, haven't had much time for work today between one thing and another, but here's the new step in my sketch!
Moved to a more manly position.  Also solidified more elements like hands and armour design.  His thighs will be covered in square scalemail probably.

Tuesday Update!

Another day, another sketch for Schoolism.  I actually lost an entire layer on this because I saved badly.  That'll learn me ! :P

Anywho, I do believe this gives me a better opportunity to stay loose.  I was doing it again XD

Schoolism With Andrew Hou

Fifth assignment.  This is the sketch I'm finally happy with!
(WIP, still adding final detail 55% there!)
This is a D&D monster, a devil in fact called a Kyton.  It is rapped in chains.  I wanted to give my own spin!

A short break into tonal study

I used the same sketch method I've been learning and then finished it up with a custom hair brush.  I think the result worked out decently.

Assignment 04 complete!!

What can I say, he's a good teacher! :)

Schoolism With Andrew Hou

Assignment 04 WIP.

I cannot begin to describe how hard I find drawing women and poses in general.  Glad I've had the practise, but it's clear that coming up with a good solid concept and pose is down to experience (like all things really).  I have settled on this pose and I'm busying working on the design now.  Nothing really set in stone at this stage.

I like vampires... honestly, who doesn't!?

Moday Assignment 03 Struggles

I'm really trying my hardest on this new assignment.  I have come to the conclusion that painting in black and white tone is much more unforgiving than I thought!

Anyway, here's as far as I got today.  It's not bad, but I'm doing a lot of paint overs to get this looking halfway decent.

Schoolism With Andrew Hou

New character for Assignment 3!

I've been influences lately by watching a lot of period movies and series from about 1930s to 1950s.  Clothing designs back then were just awesome!
