View Full Version : Ian's Booke of Peril(?)

I've kinda been a peruser of CA for a while now, but I'd like to start contributing... so here you go :P

Yes. Save them as jpegs and re attach them and they should display.

Thanks man, I wasn't expecting such a fast response, I got it fixed :D
February 6th, 2008, 11:57 PM
There you go.
I think this page (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=297248&d=1202356362) is your strongest.
Try not to be so scratchy with you pencil, if you have to, sketch it in with a lighter pencil, and then solidify the drawing with one that's a little darker.

Something before bed, I think I may take him further tomorrow:

if you don't mind the suggestion, start drawing the outer edges of your figures with harder, crisper lines. it may not be your style, but i think it will contribute to your feel for anatomy.

Thanks for the crits guys! Yeah, I'm definitely still learning, I'll work on "crisping" it up. I'm just hoping if I keep doing something every day I actually improve :rolleyes:
Here's one from today... around 3 hrs I guess?

A new one for today, not really sure how long I spent, not too long I guess!

Been a while, here's some recent stuff!

Some more work on the bug dude!

Hey, Ian! These are a little late but may be a huge help for future reference!
Hope those help, man. Try and do what the photos have done, in general, for all pieces. Capture the values and tone as rich as they truly are, bright brights, dark darks, and rich midtones. If you want to manipulate those to fit the mood of your piece, then you'll know what to do a lot easier once you understand where your colors are coming from, and how to bend them to how you like!

IanE: Thanks a lot, I'm definitely still learning, but I took your advice and I just did a study of a photo of Jordan and tried to get all the values and tones right. Always learning :)

enviros looking good, same old same old advice with learning anatomy, we all repeat ourselves to people time and time again, but it's really true.
Perhaps try drawing your figures before painting them, even oil painters start with a drawing and only people highly familiar with anatomy and proportion 'carve' out the body. You can't spend too much time learning the human body - and in fact, everything else will become easier to draw because the human body is so complex! :)

Nerahla: Thanks, I think you're right drawing the figures first would help.
Here's a few semi-recent sketches.

Here are some concepts I'm doing for a project:

looks very sweet, your environment are simply good. i think you just have to study the perspective a bit more. maybe you can post some more pencils and anathomie. im watching you!

Lateman: Thanks, I'll keep posting :D
New bad-ass dude from the bad-ass future :P

Here's a new thing I'm starting; I'm planning on rendering it out. Any crits are welcome!
August 12th, 2008, 08:28 AM
Some nice stuffs in here!
August 12th, 2008, 06:05 PM
Kidult: Thanks, I appreciate it :)
Starting some colors on this thing:
August 12th, 2008, 07:15 PM
More progress... not really sure where to go from here other than adding some details.

My wip entry for the CHOW: Red Sonja. Crits appreciated!
September 6th, 2008, 05:21 AM
nice works. i like the colours. the curvature of red sonja is a bit strange, i think the lower part of the body should follow more the curve of the back.
nice characters, some need more attention on the anatomy and proportions, but that has been said before and as you said you are learning, so just keep drawing and sharing.

Thanks for the crits everyone, just need to keep at it :)
Couldn't think of anything to do so I did a Clint Eastwood study :P

Daily Sketch Group: Explorers Discover Wall of Caves are Gaping Mouths!
Somehow I got on the idea of them enjoying the fact that it was a wall of mouths... it can get lonely down in the dark :P
... poor wall!

This is a new concept I did for Multivaders 2. The brutal Scavengers are getting their first glimpse of Earth...

Finally experimented with a brush that I've had for a while =]
