    I've started some threads here at CA in the sketchbook section before, but have never remained loyal. However, from now on, i will try hard to remain loyal to this one.


    So here goes the first post!

    welcome back, this is a very good re-start for your SB. i like the compositions, details, and color schemes of these paintings. my only crit however is that some of the atmospheric perspective in the 3rd and 6th paintings aren't as successful as your other strengths, and i think you could push it back with some cooler and lighter colors near the horizon. other than that these are geat, i will look for more!

    Nice to see you over here more, annis!

    Lovely stuff as usual, you're really expanding my thoughts about colors lately Is that Painter or Photoshop? Looks very painterly.

    this looks to be the start of a great sketchbook!

    those marker renderings are sick. i also like the earthy color schemes you like to use in the digital works. it's very distinctive. what do you like best about doing traditional renders over digital, or is it mostly for your portfolio?

    jabo ! thanks man. its all photoshop. sadly, i dont have money to buy painter yet, and i couldn't pirate a version of it either- haha.

    nonspecialist> thanks man. i appreciate it. as for your question- i REALLY like working traditionally (and its also for my portfolio). the mediums are beautiful, and if you do it right, nothing beats it. plus, it helps you understand so much more, and i believe, helps you get better much faster. i love digital too, dont get me wrong, but i don't think you can ever really beat traditional media. but digital work is where it's at if you want to do really detailed work, without the worry of screwing up and having to start over. . thats what i love about digital media. when working with traditional media, there have been so many times that i've thought ' i wish there was a damn ctrl/cmd- Z button! '



    updates to come later today- i promise.

    As promised, an update.
    My finalized design's renders for the 21st century muscle car by Peugeot. Let me know what you guys think? good, bad? around 3-4 hours each. They're all on 24x11 marker paper. Chalk, pastel, prismacolor pencils, and gouache.

    Being a huge car fanatic, I would say that your peugot muscle car is waaaay too busy for my own personal tastes, and looks more japanese (ridge racer R4 maybe? ) than it does european. I would suggest looking at the classic lines of earlier french automobiles for inspiration, or even current peugot styling trends, and then try to mold and sculpt something groundbreaking from that.
    I, Personally could never see this car ever being on the street, or even the track for that matter. I Do find the rendering nicely done, if a little much in a few spots, (side view doesnt seem to fit in with the other 2). Couple perspective issues on your front 3/4 view and back 3/4 view. Try looking at them in a mirror to see what I mean.
    Overall though, I do dig your sketchbook work, and respect anyone who has any appreciation for cars and transpo in general! Keep practicing, drawing and designing my friend!

    The Peugeot is fantastic although it has a rather off aesthetic for a modern super car but maybe not a future super car. If you think about it Ferrari and Lamborghini don't try to make their cars stunningly wild as much as both elegant and difficult to understand. The design isn't as stunning as the workmanship. On your car, especially with the wheels, the design is absolutely wild but doesn't look to have the self restrain that an Enzo would have.

    I'm also saying super car instead of Muscle Car because honestly, no factory muscle car should EVER be that flashy. Muscle isn't about complicated vicious energy, its about pure, no-frillz power. Try to show more of the Mechanics as wells. Try having pipes visible in the hood or at least making the exhaust more prominent. Overall the positive points are definitely the rear wheel well and the front fascia. Fierce.

    Sorry for ranting but I think your drawing is certainly good enough for me to care enough to rant. As far as your drawing technique goes, I think its fantastic. I really admire everything here. Keep it up and I'll be back!
