Thread: depict's Sketchbook
September 6th, 2007 #1
Thought it was about time to start a sketchbook. Must admit I'm a little nervous, have only recently started using photoshop for artworks but I think I,m getting the hang of things (slowly).
Here goes a bunch of stuff, crit and suggestions is much appreciated.
Just realized how crappy my camera is!
This is my acoustic guitar which I painted with white acrylic.
This is one of my designs that I did for a three week elective project. (I am currently studying towards a bachelor of product design degree)
10 min quick sketch on photoshop (learning the ropes!)
Second proper attempt at painting on photoshop.
Thanks for looking through!

It affects it ever so slightly, not enough to worry me (it was a crappy old guitar).
Thanks for the comment.

Awesome start. Dig the skull paintings.
The creature head for your avatar is great. I think the teeth are a bit flat though.
Post more stuff!

Thanks for the kind words, depict. I'll definitely check those guys out, thanks for the advice.
I like what I'm seeing here, man. The painting of the skulls on the guitar is really nice. Your digitals kind of remind me of that game Turok, lol. Keep it up, dude.
Also, the chair design is really slick did you make the wood part also or just the design for the chairs fabric? Either way it looks nice.

Thanks for the encouragement:
HunterKiller: I'm in complete agreement with you about those teeth, I think thats just me being lazy, maybe I will fix it up and give the poor creature a body at some stage!
Ellingsworth: Thanks for the props about my chair, I did indeed make it as well as design it. The idea behind it is that a child can use it to draw on, the backboard spins around and becomes a small drawing board.
I'm thinking that seeing how this is a sketchbook I should really put some sketches in it!
Here goes some quick portrait studies (approx 10min each)
Here is a quick 10min study of one of my favourites El Greco.
That felt good, they are like the first portraits I've done for months.

Cheers for the comment Ikuru.
Here goes a piece I've been working on in my spare time, something i'm lacking in at the moment! It is still far from being finished so any crit or suggestions would be much appreciated.

House Hatke: Cheers mate, and yes, I did indeed build the chair.
A visit to the museum. Here goes a study of a spidermonkey skeleton, needed to get back to the good old basics and do some reference stuff!

AmontilladoAg: Thanks for the kind words, I left a reply in your sketchbook, and your right about that torso.
I should really be doing school work! Oh well this is much more fun!

Not much time these days, I graduate in like 2 weeks so shit is pretty full on at the moment. Managed to sneak in a few mins on this. don't really have a huge amount of direction with it but it is proving to be a fun wee piece.

Hey,dpict,very good start for your SB!!I want that chair you made!!The first acrilyc is great,and what you did with your guitar too.Your digis maybe need colors more saturated,now they seem very "grey".
Hope to see more stuff soon!

Hey Pretty nice things you have here. Good work! But as Camara said, the colours in your digital paintings do look a bit greyish. One trick I use to fix this (besides playing with the hue/saturation controls) is to put my brush in soft-light mode, pick a reddish warm colour and paint over the grey parts. I use low opacity just to liven up the colour and not change it completely.
Good luck with the graduation! And have fun

Hey everyone, thanks heaps for the great crit, have taken it on board and will hopefully improve from it.
Camara: Cheers for visiting, and thanks for the crit and encouragement, loving your SB.
Windmaker:Thanks for taking the time to write the constructive crit, it is very much appreciated and very helpful, cheers.
Doomgriever: Ha I was actually going for a Ice Queen/queen of the damned kind of feel, looks like that may have backfired, cheers for popping by.
Teh Gosu: Thanks for the props, I am currently finishing up my studies at Otago Polytechnic School of Design, in New Zealand, doing product design (pretty much the same as industrial design).

Nikoh: Cheers man, got some more product stuff on the go at the mo, will post it when its done.
Dandilion: Thanks for popping by.
Danuh: Cheers mate, I thought my skins tones were a bit dull actually but I'll take the complement!
Man it has been a while since I have posted or done any concept art for that matter! Decided to try a COW (comet rider), however I only started it about an hour and a half ago, so it probably won't be getting finished by the deadline! Here goes a post of how its looking.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

You use values very well to separate subjects from the background but the modeling on the subject itself is flat. Imagine that dragon as a sculpture. What direction is the lightsource coming from? Until you do both of these things you can't separate light and shadow in three dimensions. The way you are lighting the dragon right now is a head-on light-source onto a 2-D collage of forms.

It's been a while since I posted anything so here goes my first ever CHOW entry (#109)
Once a vision of splendor, the Quarquin were adorned with golden armor, after arriving on earth as immigrants, the native humans of earth have hunted the Quarquin out of their greed for this armor, their life on earth has become one of fleeing from their would-be human captors.
Darkwolf: thanks for the thoughtful crit, it is very much appreciated!
March 10th, 2008 #27
appreciate the comment man..the skeleton in post 10 is well done and i like the head in post 14. if it were up to me id darken her eyes to draw more attention to them...
the alien immigrant is tight too..one crit...the atmospheric perspective in between the limbs is waay to much man. other than that i like.

Dekal: Thanks for dropping by, and your spot on with your crits (WHICH i VERY MUCH APPRECIATE), the ET immigrant was a little rushed, I'm not happy with, well pretty much all of it. Those props mean alot coming from a talent such as yourself!
Icedearth: Thanks for popping by dude, will definitely come check out your sketchbook!
Dian3: Cheers, will have to check your stuff out also, and thanks for dropping in for a gander.
