Talking My Little Cutties.....not!!!

Hello Everyone, Cool artworks!!! I never knew how to do concept art until I viewed a sample video at TheGnomonWorkshop site by Carlos Huante... just a few seconds of it blew me away! I never knew that one can just play with the pencil until something is created. After that short clip I grabbed a pen and a post-it pad and tried it myself...the cheap way of course. Why draw them on this small pad, well since I work in security, it's the only thing I can fit in my uniform's pocket... along with a pen...this is also why I only draw the head..no room for the rest...but I hope to develop the bodies in the future. What I do is hide under a stairwell (shhhh) during breaktimes of course.. and let the steps of the people above me become the sounds of my so called creatures which create themselves..It's funny how they really just come out...although at times they turn into..well just scribbles I have quite a few o this post-its...actually too many I decided to enter this contest because I will like to get a shot at some of these great free dvds since I can't afford them...well you already know why! Good luck to all!

Default Thank you!!!

Hello Alex,
Thanks for the great compliments. I've never done this so I'm glad to finally get some feedback. A post-it pad and a pen can go a long way. Hopefully once I take some vacation I can develop various of my creations more fully, like some of the artist at TheGnomonWorkshop... of course, it will take tons of practice!

It seems like you enjoy creatures. I would recommend watching Animal planet or anything to do with animals as this is a great source for creature design.

Those are the best darn post-it notes I've seen!! :P You're doing an awesome work man, you really should expand to full sized sheets/creatures, but I actually like the idea of those post its, I can imagine going to an expo where the walls are just covered with these post-its, I'd probably spend a couple of hours looking at all of them if they're this cool!!

Keep it up!!
