These are great!
Last one is marvellous!!!
Yeah! Classical era is one of my favorites!
I'm looking at your images with bated breath. Very nice. But it seems to me, I beg pardon, on the third image of the left hand of a warrior out of the joint. It seems to me.
Whoa!I really like these (of course). The toned paper is so amazing for doing studies on - I need to start using this more. What kind of reference material (if any) did you use in the making of these sketches? The armour has superb authenticity and solidarity. Really want to see the finals!(And btw, how did the Seattle workshop go?)-Will
Hey Will,Yeah, I really love working on this sort of toned paper. I used some reference I found of photos from someone's recreation of old Greek armor. Mainly this was to get the details right. Most of it was out of my head though. (I really need to shoot more reference...) The Seattle Workshop isn't til the end of the month. There is still a spot or 2 open I think if anyone out there is still considering it!
Ha, well, shooting your own reference is great, but only if you have a suit of Greek armor lying around in your living room! I'm going to check at my local art store this week to see if I can find toned paper that is at least *similar* to what you're using. I think it would be a good discipline for me to get into.And have fun in Seattle!
Man that is cool!
Wow, these are all amazing! I especially like the last one! This upcoming project looks pretty epic...
Wow! That's really good! I love it! More people should draw instead of just taking pictures. Great job!Gwyn (A.J)
I'm extremely excited that my favorite artist is tackling one of my favorite pieces of literature!
Just saw some pieces for your Silmarillion show, very cool stuff. I hope you'll blog about them in detail sometime in the future.
Dragon Helm, so perhaps we're looking at Túrin Turambar...
The Dragon Helm is brilliantly sketched. The wearer appears to be fair-haired, though, so I'm thinking this is Hador.
Fantastic, can I ask you which kind of paper and pencil do you use?
Justin, what project was this for? The Silmarillion stuff or something set in the classical Greek era? I'd love to see more of this style.
hey J.M., This was for the Silmarillion, much of which I tend to imagine in terms of the classical Greek era. To see more work like this, check out: http://quickhidehere.blogspot.com/search/label/The%20Silmarillion
