Lens Flares!

I went on a wonderful Man-Date the other night with Jake and Anthony (if you haven't, you should DEFINITELY check out their blogs) and we saw the new Star Trek movie. In the movie, J.J. Abrams uses lens flares like they are going out of style, and I LOVE it. Hence, the reason I used it here. Historically, I found the Lens Flare incredibly cheesy, but Mr. Abrams (whom I would follow into the depths of Hell, for LOST and for LOST alone) made them look so freaking awesome. I can't claim that my usage is anywhere near as cool as his, but there it is. Looking for reference, I found a lot of websites/bloggers that did not enjoy the Star Trek lens flare. They're entitled to their opinions, but their opinions are WRONG. If you haven't seen Star Trek yet, go and see it. It's even in the dollar theatre now.



So the last post was supposed to be the background for this dude, but I changed my mind. Anyway, this guy now has a gun. Doesn't every man in space need a gun?

A sketch of a desert rocky terrain. Just trying to work out some color stuff. I hope you enjoy.



This is some progress of a space man. I will put in a background later on, and maybe some finishing touches.
