alex's sketchbook (so far)
Hi everyone! My name is Alexander Forssberg, I'm a 20 year old fella' from Sweden (so excuse my english). I've been drawing all my life and I got into a school here in Sweden where I study 3D graphics for the game industry. But I would say my final career goal is to be able to make a living as a concept artist for some cool developer.
Scroll down, hopefully I have made some sort of progress thruout the years!
I have never been in any artschool or anything like that. Everything I've learned about concept stuff is from looking at other peoples work and I also got some Massive Black movies like Jason Chan's quick sketch stuff, I learned alot from it but it mostly got me depressed :/
Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

I just whopped this together for practice, took almost 40 minutes I think.

Like most newbies I have troubles with hands so here is some I did with just looking at my hand.
:edit: the pinky on the grapping pic has a really wierd angle

2 more sketches, I didn't use any references or perspective stuff on them so I expect some errors
some kind of mechanical shrimp on wheels and what started as a dude picking an apple ended in a alien invasion. I hope you like.

Hi Alexson, welcome
I thinks it's handy right now to set some goals. Maybe you want to learn something more about perspective, or about the human figure,... It can be handy to have some goals "to work too".
I would suggest perspective first. Try to find some books about perspective or look the internet for some good links first.
Try to check out loomis for more information about the human figure.
Good luck and have fun

Hey again! I was just about to start a new sketchbook here but I remembered I had this old one, so why not continue on it. Here is some sketches I've done lately in photoshop, hopefully you guys can see some sort of progression from the first posts here I did 6months or so ago.

Hey Alex, cool works! Your PS rendering is coming along well - you have some nice confident strokes - but it looks like your line quality is not as refined. Might be a good idea to work with plain old pencil and paper for a while... in particular you could benefit from some anatomy studies

Ho Chief! Thanks for your answer, I've been doing some studies mainly from Andrew Loomis books both on paper and in Photoshop. I'm still a noobie when it comes to the musclegroups and all that but I'm trying!
*edit* Checked out your sketchbook, wow!
