    Some Portfolio work

    Hey guys, I'm trying to put together something cohesive for the workshop. Here are a few of the pieces I'm considering. Feel free to let me know what you like or would like to see more of.










    thanks for your help!

    I think a lot of them are fantastic paintings.

    But as of right now, a lot of them need something more concrete as far as nailing down a design if concept art is what you are wanting to do.

    really impressive work. love the color palettes and the sculpture one as well.

    i agree that I think some of the paintings needs to be pushed more to get them, well, looking more finished. take the one of the big guy with the staff. the whole thing looks very hazy. i think it's okay to have some parts loose, or unfinished or even abstract-y looking, but key areas need to have all the details worked out. I'd love to see his face and shoulders more as well as his weapon.

    that said, you clearly have some great figure work there, good textures too. I think you may want to just go back and go that one more step with these.

    I would spend some time refining these before I would consider these "finished portfolio work". The level of polish isn't quite where it needs to be, they currently would count more as speed paints or sketches. They have loads of potential but as an AD I would personally like to see that an artist can finish the job. Even when working in a loose style the goal is that the viewer can visualize details without having the piece highly rendered.

    Hey Carl, what's up man. Nice to see you on here. Even though I've already seen these, I do like the few changes you've made. Especially the wings you added to that last one. My advice would be to refine that first one. It kinda looks like the cover of the story or something so It should be pretty finalized looking. Also, the main girl's (cant remember her name) looks kinda awkward in that pic. A little stiff looking. I'm not feeling the shadowed face either. She's got such a cool looking face and hair, you should show it off on that one. Good luck at the workshop.

    really cool work! love it. the only thing id say is maybe take some focal points in your paints and render em out a little. otherwise very promising work!

    take care

    yeah, great stuff!
    i can only repeat what everyone said, do some finished things.
    take some designs to the end, render them out.
    there are some good concepts, make them clearer!
    imagine being an 3d artist and having to make a model out of it.
    you should not need to much words (if any) to explain the creature/costume whatever.
