KratosII by JoelGomez KratosII by JoelGomez
Another stab at Kratos... I keep looking at the art of books and I keep trying to capture the feel of the concept art...but in analogue. Concept art always looks very energetic and implied...I'm trying to bring that kind of energy to my work with ink and splatter

I have no idea what that means, but I like the picture, if that helps. To improve it I would have a pair of legs jutting out under his foot and a head on the other side spewing guts out in the shape of the word "MOTHER!"

heh...I was noticing in the God of War art books that there was all this really loose looking kinetic artwork, but it was all done on computer using ps or painter...those things have a way of keeping it safe...there's always an undo button...when doing stuff analog(by hand)the risk /reward factor is much higher...not knocking the use of computers mind you-for how those people work ...and how fast, it makes sense. But in comics... and just as an artist...I find fewer people who can bring that kind of mojo to the table with the traditional mediums.

Packed with action, I don't know how but sketchy things catch my eye more than perfect finish things do.

Thanks, man...I guess the goal is to keep the enrgy without getting fussy with the linework

that's what i'm struggling with...is figuring out how to get the linework i have in my head to look good on paper

JoelGomez Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009
keep practicing dude...start with head sketches and work your way up when your confident with that...dont give an inch!

i have 24 sketchbooks filled plus a library of loose pages but am always practicing. thanks for the tip!

:iconjoelgomez:
JoelGomez Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009
sure! I meant the looser style tho...when i started trying to go looser with my stuff I would use ink and washes...but to take babysteps I would practice that style on just heads for a while till I was comfy with how I would follow the forms...then i would move to busts then full figure.

lol some of the stuff there definately makes for a humbling experience! though its vastly different from comic art a lot of what you'll see on conceptorg is fairly adaptable for comic skills... more in a books planning stages i suppose, but just start haunting the place, looking around seeing what there is to see, post a little, playing will definately be a game changer, no guts, no glory eh!
also they have a lot of great tutorials etc that you can purchase and download with subjects ranging all over the place depending on what you're looking for.
i'm a fan of high energy art, lots of debris, explosions, fast movement... capturing that exact perfect moment in time where your like "damn, i hope they make it".
kratos chain going thru the shadows... terrific!

It is more enjoyable in its own way. There is more room for the viewer's own imagination. Unless one is a vegetable... then good luck imagining anything. [drool... grbl-guhh]
