    Sketchbook

    Hey im new to the forum have been looking over some of the amazing work thats been uploaded here over the last couple of weeks, so i thought i'd share some of mine and if possible get some feedback - most of the stuff im putting is from the last few years just sketches and peices ive done when bored and the uploads are just scans of pen n ink work as im not fully brushed up on photoshop yet, though i have put some drawings that ive done in flash and ive just started working in 3dsmax so i put in a few renders as well, so any advice etc. is fully appreciated
    cheers

    welcome to the forums
    nice drawings. I especially like your cartoonish work. I wanna see some life drawings/studies, that could really help you a lot. your drawings seem to need a bit more three-dimensionality, which you can get better at by drawing from life. and you could also push the values a bit more on the pencilwork.

    Keep it up ;D //Lotta

    FUTILE EFFORTS <-help me I suck.

    You've got a really cool imagination man, just a matter of getting your skills to the same level. Try laying in the figure before you start working on the contours, just a quick gesture of the spine and limbs and maybe plotting some of the major masses.

    What the hell, man? I was just looking up team fortress last night and saw that pic you drew for that contest. Spooooky... Best reference to Uncle Sam is what you got, right?

    And now I know your name, heh heh...

    The life/ref drawings are definitely pushing you forward. I'd suggest doing some quick gestures to warm up and then doing comfortably timed refs. Be sure to move inward with your line work on the body to get a sense of it's mass and that'll help you develop some more shading.

    Keep it up!

    yep life drawing is awesome, helps heaps! you might wanna have a look at construction and understanding volumes/shapes, that'll help you understand things like perspective and foreshortening a lot more. there's great books on it by Loomis, you can download them in lots of places since they're out of print. And they're awesome

    it's great to see you improving already!

    Cheers for checking out my SB

    You should check out George Bridgman too for anatomy his stuff helped me understand anatomy more than any other artist. It's all very simplified and geometrical, here's some of his stuff http://www.scribd.com/doc/4461737/Co...eorge-Bridgman

    It's looking good though man, keep up your life drawing and you'll learn real quick.

    heres my finished dissertation work, the title was investigating the transition between concept art and 3d art, so i created two characters for unreal 3 using two different workflows
    first character was 'Captain Suspenders'
    Sketchbook
    He used to be overweight, and got teased because of this constantly, it was also when he was given his nickname of Captain Suspenders as he had to wear them to keep his trousers up. When he had finally lost all hope of loosing the weight, he miraculously lost it, which is when he discovered his power of being able to do the thing that know one expects. Which in turn means his greatest nemesis is his own Mother as she will never stop believing in him, so the second character is his 'Mother'
    Sketchbook
    and here are the finished in game models
    Sketchbook
    Sketchbook
    Sketchbook
    Sketchbook

    i will be making them downloadable at some time in the near future
    cheers for looking

    i bought a ref skull ages ago so i could do some still life with it and finally got around to having a go, was originally just going to be a sketch but i thought i would have a practice at sketching and blending by hand, so ive forced my self to only use the brush tool, no smudging or blurring - no where near finished but im quite pleased with it - even though its more of a practice for technique
