Your Pathetique Light

inspired by Mono's song with the same name. and Mushi Shi (watch it!)
Jef and I had a discussion on the topic of art (as always) :D
and interior lighting came up. so I think I had that somewhere in the back of my head. and then Your Pathetique Light kicked in and this idea came to me :]

in retrospect I should have put the window a bit further down and to the right I think.

shool project: character illustrations part 2

Elif Fannar

Age: 46
Occupation: Miner. Reassigned to the excavation after an accident.
Race: Synthetic [80%]

He was formerly a Human, but suffered an accident at the factory he used to work at and had to be altered to save. He would probably not have been saved if not for the fact that his grandfather was a powerful and important politician. He was later employed as a Miner just before the excavation started. His brain is connected to a net terminal computer located on his back. This let´s him connect to The Complex Net Terminal. Where he can receive daily updates on his work progress amongst other things, including reading the news, sending messages etc (not on working hours though). He is of a tall build, common for industrial working Synthetics. With his powerful arms he can lift and carry heavy mining equipment that would otherwise require either a vehicle or a small team to transport and operate. This lets him use the custom made mining laser with ease.
Since he is not a complete Synthetic he doesn't suffer as much discrimination as the 'pure' Synthetics.

Elif swears. A lot. And he has mood swings that are most likely the result of the trauma from the accident on top of that he is also a very cynical person, known for speaking his mind.
On the other hand, he does perform his job very well. And firing him would upset his grandfather so he is safe. Though sending him out to the dig site was probably a way for his employee to get him out of the way for awhile.

List of implants:
Retina screen – shows data to the person, on the retina, making it easier to send and receive information.
Synthetic muscle and organ replacement - Enhances performance significantly.
Terminal net connection. He can connect to the Core Terminal Net. Information from there is shown on his retina.

shool project: character illustrations part 1

Joseph Becelle

Age: 32

Occupation: Soldier. Currently enlisted in the Special Recon And Assault program.

Race: Human [No records of any extra implants besides civilian and military status implants]


Born on Mars, he moved with his uncle at an early age to The Complex [located in the beta gamma cluster 005]. What happened to his parents is unknown. Most likely they where lost in the riots of the Synthetic Uprising. As a young boy he worked at a coffee shop before enlisting to the army. He enlisted to the special task forces of C-core. After years of service protecting important politicians and upholding law and order at the Complex, his squad was picked to defend the digsite from any potential threat (terrorist attacks or strikes most likely). This was a standard procedure ordered by C-cores AI, Akakios.


He´s a quiet man and mostly keeps to himself when he´s not on duty.

He is known to put on a small headband before he puts on his combat armor, it is rumored he does this to be able to focus on the task at hand better, or to 'get in the zone'.

His somewhat sarcastic attitude got him into a lot of trouble when he first joined the army.

Joseph is an excellent team worker and is suitable for the position of team leader. His ability to quickly assess a situation and react accordingly will win him many battles. He also has a very good grasp on military tactics in urban environments.

He is trained with the use of assault rifles, sniper rifles and close quarters fighting. Including melee combat.

List of implants:

reflex modulator – improves speed and efficiency of reflexes.

Retina screen – shows data to the person, on the retina, making it easier to send and receive information.

various lung, muscle and stamina improvements are also in place.

Concept art: Monster fixed

fixed the two biggest errors on this one, also I removed the white fram because it bothered me ~~

Concept Art Speedpaint

this is a quick sketch featuring (some early versions of) the two maincharacters for my story I´m currently doing for my Concept Art class. Not really happy with the current design on the character to the left.

He´s supposed to be a 'synthetic' human. taller, stronger and more resilent to harsh envoirements they are mostly used as miners or as heavy security.

Speedpaint No1

I reformated my computer this week, reinstalled everything and gave speedpainting a go.
uhm, very uncoordinated so there are ALOT of errors in this one, I forgot to use any resemblence of perspective to mention one thing X___x
but this was mostly to get used to paint in PS. it´s a bit tricky I must admit.

I´ve also done most of the storyboard for my Concept Art Class assignment. so my next speedpainting will probably be scenery from that story :]

Peace bitches! :<
P.s. GTA IV and Beatiful Katamari is love <3

moar sketches!

sketch-mania! been drawing stuff for almost 4-5 hours straight now Oo

Satisfy - Guitar Vader inspired

I´m not too happy with this one. then again it´s just a quick doodle. I probably spent most of the time drawing those damnable circles on his 'cloak'/robe thing...

Go listen to Guitar Vader, they´re awesome :]

Concept Art classes have started :}

this is just some perspective training :]
ignore the shadows, they where thrown in at last minute and really just messed the whole thing up xD

WIP: Chinaman

my current WIP (2008-05-24)
A warrior from ancient china :D
playing Romance of the three kingdoms and Dynasty warriors too much leaves trails xDDDD

I like this WIP so much I´m even going to colour it and maybe add a backround :0

some sketches made in good ol' Photoshop cs 2

program crash

The above drawings final version would probably be up here if it wasn´t for the fact that open canvas crashed on me when I tried to save it O___o

It had happened once before so I took this picture with my cellphone before I tried to save. xD

character sketch

started out as a sketch of the head, but there was more space to fill xD
this is a sketch of how the main character in my new idea for a comic/manga may look like.
and the scene behind him is from the beginning of the story. I was too tired too actually put in details that would hint at it being a hospital, since it was just a quick sketch.

Giroro from Keroro Gunso :]

I was just going to do a simple avatar for Naruto forum, and then it got out of hand. xD

I´m pretty happy with it except his head should be a bit more circular :shrug:
but in the manga their heads aren´t perfect ball shapes actually :XD:

Giroro belongs to the dude/dudette who made Keroro Gunso :heart:

comments are welcome

Used a photo from the recording of one of our albums as reference ~~
Proportions are a bit awkward here due the massive fail on the perspective xD
But I still like it :]
