    Another watercolour from photo.


    Zoo doodles from life.





    Went to my local cemetery to draw from life, but the only painting I got time to do before it rained is a bit shit.


    A sort of storyboard of key elements for a roller coaster concept I'm working on.


    And a couple of concept sketches for the area. Quite like them as paintings, not keen on them for their purpose.

    More theme park design.

    Here's an overview of the area, with the roller coaster entrance, viewing platform and primate enclosure.

    Maquette of the roller coaster entrance.

    Sketch of a food stall for the area. A ruin converted into a campsite kitchen.

    Maquette of the food stall. I also filmed me making this, click here.

    I was having trouble drawing a bird statue, so I made a maquette. I have yet to draw from it though.


    I want to tell a narrative through the theming in the queue area...



    Station building. Queue enters to the left and the roller coaster launches out of the building on the right.


    Need to do more observational drawing...
    This one is from one of my models.

    This one is from a photo.


    As always feedback welcomed.

    Nice watercolors! I like the looseness of some of these, when you're working on a longer drawing, try putting detail only into your focal point and leave other areas more hazy, less detail as you radiate out from the focal point. I think it will add a lot to the overall atmosphere of your paintings. Keep it up!

    Thanks Sprogis, after I read your suggestion I've been trying to keep it in mind when I draw and paint.

    Here's a storyboard for the lead up to the ride. Entering the area and the queue. Sequential image making is not my cup of tea, must admit.

    Random thumb sketches of ideas for the attraction.



    Really struggling with the bird statues. I dunno how to make them look like... statues? It's the legs that are driving me insane. Any suggestions?


    Design for the entrance to the first temple building, an indoors part of the queue with reptile exhibits.

    Detailed drawing showing part of the roller coaster, queue and scenery.


    And now some observations from photos, making sure I'm looking at references of Cambodian temples and drawing from them often.
    This one i really concentrated on making the foreground more detailed and the background more suggestive.

    Don't like this one much. But drawing it informed me about the design of the temple entrance above.


    This one is gouache, experiment with colour. Only used the 3 primaries and a touch of white. I like gouache, need to use it more.

    Hey everyone, I'm really struggling with digital colour. I think I'm okay with mixing and creating colours with paint but have literally no idea what to do with digital... Working in photoshop just under a sketch. Was only meant to be a quick colour.

    Any advice, tips, criticisms, etc would be really appreciated. Here's what I've done thus far.

    great sketchbook
    I love your gouache work!
    starting with digital color is always hard I think...
    you are working very clean in this, maybe you try to start with a quick color-sketch over your whole picture? don't try to be exact with the lines just capture your color mood, like in your gouache pictures, they look so alive!

    Hello, HAJiME.

    I enjoy your imaginative pencil compositions, and I think that acrocanthosaurus sculpture is pretty darn cool, too. Also, my wife and I were looking through your sketchbook last weekend and we both enjoy your watercolors very much.

    As for advice on that last digital... It really depends on what kind of look you are going for. if you intend to keep the linework visible in the finished version, you might consider altering some of the lines--maybe following a reference more closely. The rope, for example, doesn't exactly feel like rope because the lines are handled in a similar fashion to the bricks; they lack the alternating, opposing pattern of curves that is characteristic of rope. Even just suggesting a few of these curves in the foremost sections of the rope could strengthen the image, I think. Or maybe you intend to color it and then paint the lines out/ manipulate the edges? Either way could look nice.

    Things you might experiment with in digital:

    -Maybe you've tried this already, but to me, it is easier to paint if I get rid of the white right away. I often start with an unsaturated brown or a gray and then sketch (or add already existing linework) on a new layer. With all those blinding, white values gone, you can then chose to add both darker and lighter values where appropriate.

    -You might play around with coloring the lines themselves, too.

    Keep up the good work--I hope to see more.

    -Nate

    Hello. Just returning the sketchbook visit... don't mind me...

    Great watercolor stuff! (But, then, I'm amazed by anyone who can get watercolors to do what they're supposed to do... had rotten luck with them, myself, though I keep meaning to attack them again.) Keep at it!

    Thank you so much.

    I wanted the lines to show, not really sure why. I wanted it to have a simple appearance, if that makese sense? And be a quick thing. (Ha...)

    I'm going to seriously look into the rope thing, thanks for pointing that out.

    I've already changed the background to a neutral browny grey and it's helped lots already.

    Again, thanks for the feedback.

    You seem pretty confident with working with colour in your watercolour work, so try an transfer what you know across by working in a similar way.
    Approach the painting in the same way, start with white and a loose sketch and slowly build up your layers of colours and darks to flesh out objects. Try finding a few brushes that give you some nice variety, like a real brush would and work with them.

    Obviously its practice but youve shown you can paint/colour with those watercolours. You just gotta try and think in the same manner.
    Keep up the great work!

    hi HAJiME, thanks for visiting my SB! Its good to see that you start working digital. You have really great traditional artwork and I wonderful linework. Sometimes it seams intimitating in working digital but at the end it can be real fun. As you asked for some tips Id suggest you to set your line-art on multiply layer and then create a new layer below on which you can paint whitout losing the lines. Matt Kohr has created a great website with tricks on getting start with digital painting. I think he can explain things much better than me but maybe you already know it: http://www.ctrlpaint.com/

    cheers

    Thanks guys for the advice. I've been using multiply because the sketch isn't clean lines and I wanted to to be a bit scruffy and quick looking anyway? It's taking far too long though. Why am I so SLOW? I've been using various brushes, trying to use ones appropriate to each object to give varying texture and I'm trying to keep the foreground a warm and detailed with a cooler and less detailed background.

    eadlyhamster - I went to your sketchbook to give you my input on watercolours. Seemed better than posting here where you might miss it.

    Here's how it's looking atm. Continued feedback appreciated.

    Gouache observation from photo.


    The image I was working on "finished"... Might touche it up.


    This is a design for a primate enclosure.


    And a sketch for the one I'm working on now. It's an indoors section of the roller coaster.


    Here's a wip... Gurney's Color and Light book is really helping. Greens still hate me though. At least there are none in this...

    Thanks for stopping by my SB, you have some really nice watercolours on here that im really liking. My favorite thing on here has to be the tiger poster a few pages back, and the dino pencil sketches.
    I feel like some of the perspective cbb in a few of your pencil sketches as it adds to realism, but its something I need to work on as well.. just some advice, thats all.
    Great work tho, i cant wait to see more!
    cheers

    Haha, thanks deadlyhamster.

    Well, I finished the project where I was working on that themed attraction. You can download the whole thing in a PDF: http://josephfells.co.uk/portfolio/J...pleofElang.pdf or view it online here: http://josephfells.carbonmade.com/projects/3207485#1

    I'd really love some feedback on it.

    hey,
    That project was probably fun to make and it was fun for me to look through it
    You said you want some feedback so I will try to give you my opinion.
    If I look to your digital work it's all great, but your first one is the weakest mainly because your trees are not so well done compared to the rest of your digital work.

    Your best digi is the second one because it has good perspective and composition, also you gave the foreground more detail and the background less so it creates a focus point and depth.

    Your storyboard sketches are all well done because all have good perspective and linework.

    What I miss is some watercolors, because you can handle them well and they are a perfect medium for this kind of work.

    All by all you did a great job and I hope you had fun doing it,

    I will wait now for your next update, I hope for some watercolors too

    It's not always easy to draw landscapes like this. The perspective seems quite right one your drawings - not about the digital coloring, you should maybe create more "depth", like using lighter and less saturated colors for what is far away, and darker and sharper tones for what is closer.

    good luck for the rest ^^

    I haven't posted here in ages.

    My art has been slow to progress and I need a kick up the arse. I'm hoping that posting here may inspire me to do more. Any words of encouragement, criticism, advice, etc. would be massively appreciated.

    I guess a little update on my life is required too? Currently freelancing (with part time jobs on the side but shhhhh). Most of the work I get is illustrating themed facades or colouring stuff. Unfortunately I can't show any of that though.

    Okay anyway some stuff...

    These are a unofficial concepts for a retheme of a log flume style ride at a theme park local to me.



    Thanks for looking.
