Alienmastermind's Citadel of Rendering...*Wave Zero*

Postby alienmastermind » Thu Sep 06, 2007 8:52 pm

(So THAT's what that smell is.)

Soon...I will link to stuff I've done. Namely, my avatar to the left there...and something I like to call 'Oh Crap! Where are my Villain Points?!'

Sometime this evening...

And here's the current project I'm working on...Working on adding effects and colors and such...

Image

This is the nightmare scenario of Orion versus the lovely Lady Liberty, as he leaps from a Freedom City skyrise, realizing he doesn't have any Villain Points to use in giving himself a parachute...whoops!

I think the caption says it all...This is by no means the finalized pic, there will be rudimentary colors and effects and such...:)

Two words: Absolutely freaking awesome. Or abso-freaking-lutely awesome if you want to be exact. Your art style is great, I'm gonna check out your digital art tutorial in a second. I'm sure I can take a lot from it.

Hey, thanks!

Thanks very much for the kind words about me scribbles. Well, it may interest you guys to know that I've managed to score a gig with AdamantEntertainment doing some artwork for their upcoming villains book. I'll be putting up the colored version of 'Villain Points' sometime this week, as well as the preliminary sketches and such for that pic...

But, I'm telling you guys now that my art is like sausages: You don't really want to know how either one was made.

It's not glamorous is all..However, I think you might be interested in seeing the initial sketch work I do...

Also, I don't have any Digital Tutorials...I linked to Silverback's and to Tony Cliff's...who's got it DOWN when it comes to Photoshop.

The materials I use: .05mm mechanical pencil (HB or a little softer lead)...I use Microns myself, but only because I haven't purchased another Speedballer because I've been saving up for my upcoming wedding. But I'm going to get myself a brush pen...of the type that DMAC uses for his stuff..

To create the lines I use, for bolder lines I use a .05mm Micron (Sakura) and for the fine lines I use a .01 Micron. Scan it in, and then clean it up using some of the digital techniques I've found around the web.

I might do a step by step thing later on...

Glad you liked the work! Thanks a million. (Cookies)

You really are a Mastermind - Or at the very least a Master Artist! :wink:

I would love to see more Freedom City pictures. Please? :D

For my next trick...

Uh...I'm not doing another Freedom City pic for a bit...currently working on some material for the Villain book. However, I may post a sketchie or two later on of some stuff. I can't post the stuff I'm currently submitting until all the legal stuff is finished..

It's gonna be good! ;)

Ok, I have sent this in on spec...But if they use it, I won't be able to let you guys have the image or anything..but here's what I've been up to since Saturday...And apparently, the above post means I'm a stinky liar, because the next piece I did was a quick one for Libra...a moment from the video files of the Freedom City archives....something that you didn't get to see in the Sourcebook...But for now...BEHOLD!! The power of the Serpent Sphinx!!


Image


Serpent Sphinx is my own creation...and Singularus is my old character from City of Heroes...I got too busy to play anymore, but apparently, he's been captured by the Serpent Sphinx, being tortured and the like.

Here's another villian pic...an old sketch from a while back...A scum named Wesker...

Image

And Wesker's arch-enemy Mr. Silver...

Image

Later, I began learning my own style, rather than picking and choosing from comics I liked...though now I tend to lean towards Doc Hammer and Ed McGuinness.

Image

Here's a sketch of Crucial without her helmet...There was to be a vectored motorcycle done by a friend of mine...but alas, he never got round to it.

Image

And here's one of my players' group from an old Aberrant game from like 1998 or 9...

Image


Finally, my Cleric from a 2nd Edition game we played for a long time.
