    James Wolf Strehle, UPDATE! SKETCHBOOK REVIVAL!! last page!

    Hey everyone! SKETCHBOOK REVIVAL, LAST PAGE!!


    Hello all you wonderful people of CA. After looking through all of these amazing sketchbooks i've decided to make one of my own,
    but I wanted to give it some purpose rather than putting stuff up now and then so I've decided to make it a Journal of sorts, tracking my progress through to my Goal of making it into the gaming industry! and ultimately a position at MASSIVE BLACK! which is my dream! although I realize thats pretty ambitious and I may very well end up a 70 year old man grasping onto old dreams that never were... thats sad ..um but also it will be interesting to see my skill grow over the course of this sketchbook, well I hope it will!

    Anyway down to business, here are a few full fledged illustrations so you can get an idea of my current skill level: attached, and after that I will begin my entries into my SKETCHBOOK!

    Thank you so much for taking a look, I will try to barrage this thread with all the artwork I can muster up, so be sure to check back!

    edit: moved the images to my second post so i can change the sketchbook icon

    Ok so my first lead was through TIMEGATE STUDIOS, I got in contact with them and we had a phone interview. the creative director I spoke with mentioned that they were looking for someone who can whip up mood paintings and sci-fi environments, which is something I don't have much of, so my first step is to get moving on those. so I've been checking out many artists that do that sort of work. semi relating is a quick painting i did for the gnoman labyrinth contest. it took around 8 or 9 hours which is ok but the pros seem to get similar results in 40 minutes so i must work on that. about the piece: the hero is stuck in a crossroad where he must decide his path, the path of the braves or the path of the jackals. I'm pretty happy with it but it is muddy and feels overworked, anyway here it is:

    great sketchbook, man. I've seen some of your stuff on cgtalk. I like that texture you made with some of you pieces. gouache-ish maybe spray paint-ish, idk. only thing is, to me, it doesnt give the distance look that there should be. mainly on the last two enviros, but thats just me. Other than that, awesome stuff.
    keep em comin.

    I'm pretty sure you're going to be working somewhere in the gaming industry before too long with work like yours. The first post is incredible, great color and mood on all three. Great start and good luck with MB!
