    Jake needs to grow......artistically

    Hello, like most I've been inspired by the work here for quite some time...and its about time to dive in and get better myself.

    I've been working in the games industry doing 3D art for several months now, but find that there is a greater passion in 2D art. I have a long ways to go, but at 21 I'm aware I have lots of time!

    I'd looove any feedback on how to improve...I thought that instead of using the critique section, I should make a sketchbook since I should be updating often enough and am not ready to spend days on final works. Thanks!

    I'm trying to work on a variety of things to help learn, and maybe figure out what I enjoy best...

    I will agree with Raistlin, nice start to your sketchbook. You have a nice grasp of the digi tool. I would like to see some drawings. Anatomy studies drawing from life would only improve your skills faster. I like bridgmen but there are lots of other anatomy books out there. I would like to see some anatomy studies for your next update

    RaistlinTheDark Thanks for the welcome! I'm getting back into those types of studies as we speak...thanks

    Darktwin Your definately correct on the anatomy stuff. I had 2 classes early in school - so its been a while....I have some decent resources and I'm taking your advice to make time for it again

    crisis Thanks! I will update with a few of my characters next post

    Cryoxzonomony Thanks, ill check out your stuff soon

    Teh Gosu Glad to hear it, I really like how your piece turned out


    I'm sure its a common problem...bad scanner! Here are the last couple pages in my book - I tend to go over my work with a thin, scratchy kind of pen to clean it up a bit...however all the pencil rendering on the creature didnt scan, so I did some quick recovery in PS

    **Is there a type of scanner anyone would reccommend if I invest in one? One that is good at capturing broad tonal ranges?

    Good start man, I think that you should start doing some bridgman studies. get his Constructive anatomy for the artist book it's the best one. It's only like four bucks on amazon. Also do some Michelangelo studies as well they help with your line quality and rendering. and thanks for stopping by my book.

    OldNewbie Thanks for the welcome!

    Unbreakable Good suggestions...I don't have a book by Bridgeman yet so I'll look into it for sure...seem to hear about his book the most around here.


    Still interested in what you guys have/use for scanners! So let me know what works well for pencils etc etc.

    I'd guess about 50% of the effort in the last few images wasn't even captured with the bad one I have to use



    Here are a few pictures of 3D stuff...the 3 characters were made in school - you can see the construction and textures on my webpage if your interested

    wow those characters are looking very nice!! Definitely game quality stuff, great textures. What are you planning your focus on 3d art or more 2d concept/illustration? You can do both even, but I believe you should focus on one and make that element of your art strong. You have the eye for both. But my opinion is you should focus on one.

    About your drawings, you have the imagination to pull crazy cool ideas from your head, keep up the good work, with a few pages here and there of anatomy studies mix in your drawings will only get stronger. Very inspiring work all around. Keep up the hard work! and thanks for stepping in my book I'll be back here, thats for sure.

    Hey, cool 3d stuff, and i really like your recent sketches but the anatomy seems a little off. But so is mine, it's hard as hell.. Is it easier working in 3d or why is that your main area?
