    NoVerdikt's sketchbook

    Whats up guys, I figured I would start posting everything I did each week from now on (well except not finished sketches and paintings unless I dont want to work on them anymore). So here's what I made in the past 4 days since I started summer break..

    my scanner isnt hooked up I should probably do that sometime so I can add all that too.

    under compensation

    to make up at least a little for the lack of awsome I just presented here I made another 40 min sketch, at least I dont feel that bad anymore. Now i need some sleep.

    Hey those are some great things! I really like your aqua-stuff, but I have to say, the frowny guy, second to last, I think is my favorite.

    Hey nice new stuff.
    that last creature is great!
    i'd say spend some more time rendering the anatomy and textures for these guys.
    check out this tutorial for some inspiration and an idea as to what the hell i am talking about.

    Learning

    After watching a tutorial that AJtron suggested I tried a new approach and I think it yielded some nice results, 45 min-1hr im not sure. I also did a masters studie of caravaggios work and realized how out of whack my colors have gotten, so I limited myself to greens and a hint of orange and yellow.

    Nother one

    I'm feeling more and more inept as I look at what I produce vs my contemporaries at other art schools, so I'm gona be increasing my workload over the next couple of weeks to try and play catch up. Well for now here's this piece I did in roughly 2 hrs, probably a little more than that, im not sure.

    Some nice work here. There all have alot of 'fun' in them.
    Would love to see a few more refined pieces, instead of worrying about speed, but hey, it's a sketchbook.

    my sketches here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92997

    Thanks No.Verdikt. I like your stuff too. Do you go to AVAA every week? I'm definitely hooked. I'll prob go to some of the sundays but all of the Mondays I was the asian guy in the far left.

    keepin busy

    Sevans: Thanks Man, well my problem so far has been that most of my pieces are too refined and too long so I started doing faster stuff as of recently since that seems to be more appreciated in the concept art industry, which is what I want to do.

    Jadestinger:Thanks

    Diorz: yeah I should probably get back to that if I want to be part of the DEEP competition.

    Omi-Kun: No that was my first time going, AJtron invited me to come...wait are you the guy that works with him? I should go to the monday sessions, the posses you got from that look pretty awsome.

    and now more, these past two days I've been watching lots of tutorials and trying to refine my technique which ended in many road side accidents so I dont have much to show for it.

    Vampires last stand

    The last stand of the vampires, Knowing defeat is unavoidable they resisted all day within castle walls and lead a desperate strike back at night. They push all till dusk where the Count manages to slay the king, raising the severed head high and giving of a last war cry as the rising sun strikes him. With the death of the king and the lack of vampire funds the country fell into a long dark age.

    2hr speed paint, the story kinda grew as it came along.

    2-3 more hours of work today, I destroyed a lot of what I had already set up to allow me to fix some of the mistakes and I think it came out better for it, some things I liked more in the original but I'll keep working on it.

    setting the mood

    trying to set a mood, also I need to increase the saturation in my pieces to give them more pop, make them more eye catching.

    You're improving really quickly. Do you study any anatomy during these paintings, or just paint from memory?

    Time for an urgent update

    Man I have been slacking on my social skills. Sorry about the long string of absolutely nothing I just finished up college and now got settled into my job, no worries I'm still actively drawing all the time and getting better.
