A Centaur from Narnia


I've watched "The Chronicles of Narnia" last weekend and got inspired by the mythological creatures of the film. This one is based on the warriors centaurs of the movie.
I'm trying to achieve the same feeling of my vector work, the straight lines, into my painted work. It has been really a challenge.

Assisti "As Crônicas de Nárnia" no final de semana passado e fiquei inspirado pelas criaturas mitológicas do filme. Esse é baseado nos guerreiros centauros.
Estou tentando alcançar o mesmo aspecto do meu trabalho vetorial, as linas retas, no meu trabalho pintado. Está sendo um desafio e tanto.

  1. Legal esse desenho... eu assisti este filme semana passada tbm e gostei muito, vc está quase lá... rs
    Desafios são muito bom e o melhor de tudo é vencê-los... Vejo que não tem medo deles e além disso, está sempre buscando coisas novas. Continue assim, creio que esse é um dos elementos para o sucesso.

  9. Thank guys! You´re all very nice! I promisse to keep posting new stuffs for you!

    Hey Bobby! I actually like the movie, but I can´t say that it´s awesome. There´s something missing that I just can´t tell. The art department worked very well! Very cool special fx. Nice soundtrack... everything. But something was forgotten. Something with the script I believe. Well, the critic I most liked came from an great artist´s point of view. Harald Siepermann (http://haraldsiepermann.blogspot.com/). If you want more info about what the art professional thought of Narnia, read that. Cya!

  10. hey I now you didn't ask me, I you probably respect Bobbby's work alot more, but I've done it myself for many years. The advice which I would give is to look for the basic shapes like you do in your own work. Try to see the character in the persons not all the details, try to get across the emotional state of the person at the time show their thought process if you will. Also try and bring your own steeez into it caricature your victim it isn't about a pretty drawing more than the overall feeeling being conveyed. just block in very basically first then carve away at it like a sculpture each time adding a little more details which each pass over the drawing. I recomend you look at Walt Stanchfeild you can find his work at animtion meat or go to Nick Sung's blog thefirehousestomp.blogspot.com for the link to Walt well I hope I help did'nt mean to be nosey MY BACK IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN, WORD.

  12. Hey did'nt mean to sound like I was in this for the respect, it does count, I just know his work looks more professional than my own but I believe helping someone else is what any artist should do if he know of a way to aid another artist. I love life drawing it's my passion I just have'nt posted any because of a lot of reasons but mostly I don't know if peolpe would appreciate the work. I do it for the simple enjoy of learning and struggle to improve each time. If you want to talk more about this stuff hit me on my email.

  18. Ei Gabriel, fantástico o seu trabalho! As suas ilustrações, que já demonstram um estilo evoluído e refinado, não deveriam ser chamadas de experimentações. Já estão bem longe disso. Vou ser sincero que prefiro as não vetoriais. Acho que são mais ricas visualmente. Bom, mas são objetivos diferentes. Para animação o vetor é uma grande ferramenta.
    Obrigado pelo link e pelo comentário no meu site!
    Pode ter certeza que ganhou um fã também!
    Grande abraço,
    Carlos
