    Sketchbook of Gundersen

    Ok a brief introduction, Architect student currently situated in Edinburgh Scotland. In Forms online course, and decided to start a sketchbook. My skills are highly limited so its gonna be a bit of exploration.

    Will post drawings aswell as photoshop studies as often as i remember it!

    Today was my first attempt to make speed paintings useing custom brushes and going all mental first before deciding what i could make the picture into.. used 20 minutes on each image.

    going crazy with brushes is fun but watch out, set up a composition first by blocking in shapes, it will really help to lead the eye, at this point my eye doesnt know where to look because its one huge mix of brushes XD hope it helps
    other than that nice start! hope form's mentoring helps you

    Viran is right on the money with his comment. Don't take this to mean you shouldn't experiment with brushes and learn everything you can about them. They're indispensible if you're going to go pro but you as an artist shouldn't ever need more than a couple of hard brushes.

    Also you're an architect student, maybe you're using this to get away but I would love to see some architecture here! If all you're doing is a dump to relax than please ignore my comments, I love to play around with brushes myself.

    I am working on a storyboard atm, and that was one of the reasons i tryed some cutom brushes, seeing i got like 40-50 images to do, i wanted to speed up the process.

    What do you guys think of this sketch, its basicly a guy walking through a crowded city street in the rain(The umbrellas was important for the director):

    i really like ur pics nonetheless coz of its style. even though its a bit hard to gain an understanding or wateva of it its something good to see bu dont ignore previous posts about composition.
    also storyboard is looking pretty funky but i think a few clearer strokes would do good, but good job.
    post more

    Check out my SKETCHBOOK ...looking for helpful advice!

    Very nice environments!
    Maybe try using textures to make it look more realistic.

    ohh have forgotten to update here it seems like

    1. Design idea for a residential living area in Fountain Park, Edinburgh. Part of a french competition. basicly a paintover on a picture. The "green" part and the buildings behind it was not there before, was a big factory
    2. EOW (almost got a vote) and part of Forms Environment class
    3. Color studies done today
    4. Some composition study/ color studies done a few days ago

    it took me a while to find out what was so special about those photos, i didnt notice the green areas and factory were not there before, so i guess you did a good job

    Looking great. I really like those storyboards, good compositions and values. Station concept has some perspective issues, you might want to check the left vanishingpoint. And a little tip for making neon-signs and other light sources: Turn your brush mode to Color Dodge and choose a dark saturated color. Really worth testing. Anyway, you´ve got good stuff here, so keep em going.

    awesome work
