Shiny hair is shiny

*bro fist activated*
Adventure time,
common grab your friends
We'll go to very
distant lands
with Jake the dog and Finn the human
the fun never ends
Adventure time~

 My roughs and my finished work. I learned something with this, and really, that's all I've ever wanted out of this kind of art jam stuff. I learned how to use the pen tool in photoshop and make really easy and quick flats.
In case you're like me and you don't know how to use the pen tool, here's the quick run down.

 First you select the brush tool and set the brush to however you want the lines to look like at whatever thickness. Next you use the pen tool to create your wavy lines of joy (remember to use the CTRL key to adjust the lines. Just hold it down and you can reselect the points you've made and drag and twist the line) and then after all that, you right mouse click to open up your options and select Stroke. This is where I got confused because I didn't know you could do that. You can even have it mimic pressure if you want but otherwise, you'll have your nice clean line now. Just hit ESC twice to deselect the lines and you can continue with your penmanship.

 Coloring is a snap now too. You see, with the pen tool creating really strong lines, the flats are colored really quickly by using the magic wand tool. Just select the inside of the lines and hold down SHIFT if you want to add more to your selection. Then make sure you click on a separate layer and then go to the top tabs and click on Selection, Modify, Expand and then expand by 2 or 3 pixels depending on how thick your lines are. I used 4 pixel thick lines so 2 worked fine for me. Just fill the selection in with your color of choice and voila~ You've just layed down some quick flats. Oh the joy of learnering.

Here's my quick paint up of Madame Grier. It's a lot more stylised than the reference I used, realism never liked me that much :)

I'm gonna give one more week on this Jam so get those sketches in guys. New jam topic on November 7th.

October Art Jam

okay, I'm going to be a bit strict on the schedual here. the end of this is maybe 3 weeks or a month. So maybe we can do something for Halloween I'm sure everyone wants to do some gorey Zombie for the holiday.
But maybe not, okay 3 weeks is the dead line, and this is the theme.... two things.
A. the most beautiful woman in the world PAM GRIER!

yup, the one the only. You know when I was doodling the Black Canary piece we did a few months back. I came to realization. Pam Grier is the REAL Black Canary, she's no saint like Wonder Woman, she's got flaws and enjoys her own sexuality.

So with that, Feel free to have fun, campy, gritty, silly if you want.

no audio on this, but it's a wonderful scene in Foxy Brown
B. this is a must, you have to have most famious co-star. The man who's been in MOST of her films, SID HAIG!

they are a duo been together for a long time and both unappreciated till now.

Just have fun with it, I want this to be more like Exploitation poster art, where even Pam Grier didn't look the way she did on the posters.

create your own movie title, directors and distribution. Play around like a L4D style loading screen of a campaign. For inspirations on grind house style posters check this site out
any questions? feel free to ask? Is the deadline too short? Should we be stricter? Anyone think this is too sexual? Feel free to ask.

Evangelion scribbles

Hi everyone first post, I've been lurking here for a while but haven't managed to get anything posted up until now. sorry!

I'll start with a bunch rough evangelion sketches I did for the jam over the weekend, I'm a big fan of the series so it was a lot of fun to do.

Some trailers for the next movie, It looks like Asuka's making a comeback!

Evangelion Art Jam

I apologize for the lateness of this--there was getting ready for and the event of Otakon, having to have to move, and then a bunch of other stuff including natural disasters and such that I blame for my lateness. I love what's been posted so far. It's so cool seeing what you guys come up with ^-^

Decided to have fun with this and go the total fan service route in lough of the summer spirit...even though it's explained in the movie that the beaches there are uninhabitable due to to pollution... but SHH! Don't ruin my summer fun.

References I used included
I used a combo of copics and watercolors for this.

I plan on doing a few more NGE drawings down the line including the end of the last movie (You Can (Not Advance)) where Shinij is struck down by the fifth (now 6th?) child--and a Rei and Asuka kitty (so cute!) fan pic of some sort.

reaction to Dota 2?

Now you know I'm a huge fan of Valve, but I'm curious to hear what you guys think of the recent Dota2 trailer?
Now to be honest, Valve is known for splitting up their development teams and then the last 6 months there's a dramatic change in production for example Left 4 Dead was handled by a team known as Turtle Rock which was originally a Counter Strike source mod that was free on the net using zombie files from Half Life 1. For a solid 4 years they worked on the game and then had all their art changed dramatically when production was handled by the core Valve team.
Now, Dota's long history comes from a Warcraft 3 mod, and it's been split up by other developers who work on League of Legends and other free to play games online and this is one of the last original mod members still working on it. Does it long sorted history really exclude it from looking identical to Warcraft 3 art assets? How much work did valve really put into this?
I've been watching the entire tournament from Gamescom this past weekend and must confess I was intrigued over it even though I'm not a big Dota fan, I played normal WC3 instead. Still the coloring pops, and there's excellent particle systems for the spells. They still call this "Beta" but it looks more then polished for a final release, the tournament was using Unreal Tournament sound file but still some of the voice samples on the characters are there.
So what say you? Is the art bad? or good? or does it get a free pass because it might be a Free to play game? Is it too hardcore tournament level game? And where is Half Life 2 ep3?

The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra

.:EDIT:. just in case, the link takes you to a vid teaser of the next season. I really like the direction they're taking with the Avatar and how they're giving her a very different personality from Aang.

You were right on the money Rummy my boy. If this doesn't get you (all of you) excited then you may want to check with a docter since you may be dead, in which case, I'm sorry to have it brought to light like this. But you should've realized something was wrong when your only real communication for the last week was with a little boy (perverts) who says "I see dead people.".

asuka vs mass produced eva units

just wanted to show some of my rough sketches of my Eva piece I'm working on. I picked the Asuka death scene from End of Evangelion. Always loved the demented and deranged those Evas looked like and how Asuka was just feeding on her own energy of not being defeated.

I own a Asuka figure, but I stepped on it in the middle of night while living in Philly like 9 years ago. But I learned sketching from it, it's not wise to just draw it identically instead just focuse on the movement and flow of the pose instead.

I just loved kinetic energy in the fight scene, so I'm trying hard to emulate that in the final piece. I'm not intending to copy a specific scene from the film, just like the idea of overly violent and fighting to the death with these deranged monsters who are constantly smiling.

kind of off topic, but got motivated to draw a killer robot right after seeing how dull and boring transformers was. WOW! I've read fan fiction better then that. And also how unearned any of it's action is. Just coming out of Captain America and even with it's action which is all modest, Captian runs, punches dude, but there's still a sense of his optimism and honesty is well defined. And the humor in Cap'n A isn't offensive, mean spirited, goofy or even overstaying it's welcome. That's the biggest problem with Transformers, like their jokes go on too long, with no idea why these scenes are even in the context of the film. It's amazing how anyone can be catered to every single fetish and still make it boring, I've been off a marathon of Russ Meyers and Jack Hill films and you can make a film about fetish but you can make it good. Foxy Brown is an AMAZING FILM, even if you want to see a beautiful woman, but she kicks so much ass that it's awesome. You stand up and cheer when she cuts off a guy's dick off.

but transformers, the movie is saved by a super model who talks megatron into saving the world, and then he gets decapitated by optimus prime. No, "thanks for saving me megatron," nope "FINISH HIM" in Mortal Kombat fashion, and then stupid ass arch of "Shia I love you" which is really the arch of these films, the dick gets the girl for being a dick. Ugh, seriously I never seen a film as bad as that.
