I recently got a Wacom Cintiq and it has really reinvigorated my interests in sketching and drawing in Photoshop. I still suck compared to all the stellar artists that we work with at Gnomon, but I’m not going to get better without trying! But it is nice to be reminded that yes…. 2D is faster than 3D. I just need to seriously improve my design/rendering skills. Anyhow, I reluctantly share this in an effort to prove that over time, with practice, I will be able to do better. Now I need to go watch some Gnomon DVDs. Heh. Let me know what you think… Thanks for watching.

Would love to be able to do a 2d concept for 3d work…just can’t draw worth a damn. You definitely have that creative gift doing six different heads that fast (at least fast for me). Just make sure your still teaching about ten years from now when my son goes to the Gnomon School.

Hi Alex. Great as usual. It is obvious you are artist for a long time, starting in comics, sketching in childhood makes you effective with cintiq tablet. You cannot think about how and why to do values, shadows etc. Really great. I am amateur artist from middle europe, wishing to attend Gnomon. 7 months later I was on trip with my father through California and have visited gnomon school. It was awsome. By the way, I was asking for Alex but they told me “alex teaches only on wednesday”, it was thuesday, pity.. Now i am working to get to the USA where I will be able to earn money, study VFX and fill my biggest dream
See you and looking forward to get an email from master

It’s obvious why guys like you are where you are – you never stop trying to improve in every area. It’s amazing you have the patience to work through different ideas with six different heads. My biggest problem (outside my lack of talent) is that that I get too psyched about plunging into the 3D world of things that I neglect the creative aspect of 2D drawing. I can’t wait for that new Creature Development tut to come out – thanks for everything you do, man!

awesome quick designs! I learned a lot from the different techniques you used here. I like how you build up the design. It’s fast and clear

Suck, you do not, sir. But I very much admire your continuing drive to improve yourself as an artist. This makes me think I need to go the opposite direction and learn some 3d skills!
