This is my first ever post on CA, but have been folowing the work of artists around here for some years. It's as inspiring asmuch as it is painfull to browse around here. So much genious...
Hope to make a career out of concept art and am open to all forms of critique anyone can put into decent words. "It's sucks", however true, is not constructive critisism I understand.
Here are some more recent sketches, in time colour updates will folow.
**edited the next day: The first few are horsemen of the apocalypse sketches. Wanted to try a new look and approach. It's Famin, Pestulance and War. Still working on Death as the supreme aspect.
The last pic is a quick set-up for the mood.

We'll be new together then (have been lurking for years as well, and i completely understand the inspiration/pain thing).
You have some great stuff there; your best asset so far is your sketches, the line work and detail is really nice to see. I look forward to seeing more.
good stuff. interesting ideas
Really Good stuff bro.
You should try to post them in higher resolution, because the amount of detail is simply amazing!
Keep it up man!!
Wow dude, sick shit! That lion lady has some huge melons!

Renewed Study - I'm drawing again!!
BlackSpot, Madhatter, Nam, Nallen, Envisor, Radio24, MrSmith, thank you kindly. There were some uplifting remarks I didn’t expect, or so soon after posting. Appreciate the imagination comment and will see it as a focusing point on things to come.
Carbono; Thanks, will do a clean up in time I think, higher res. (I felt it was quite the compliment actually.. woah, ty mate)

SaiVix; Thank yous but its Famin and Pestulance, not zombies, hehe.
Here is a line up of robots of a personal project/exam project. 4 Playable characters for one race/type of Robot. They are more or less steam powered, jack jack sketch and some updates later. Enjoy.

Pretty sweet stuff man. I'm digging the round organic feeling anatomy style.
I'll pretty much echo what everyone has said. It's hard to critique something when it's so spot on!
I like these. Nice technique and a lot of fun.
Wooh thats sweet, great start. No critique from me, just an "i really want to see more of this!". Keep it up.

And would you, Would you carry the torch for me?
Thanks all for the coments
Here are some updates of the robots made for my emam/game-concept and bachelor
work. The bachelor work was something on immersion and character design.
The colors of these designs arent clean and the overal is half done. Couldn't spend
more time, at the time and am struggeling with non organic things. These models are
made to find a style for types and models of robot, Like clockwork-, hydrogen- or
-- The rest is things I did for my exam project which...--
Got my BAT/ING last 13th of 9!!! Helloooo Real-wOorLd!
* My exam project featured: A GDD/Game concept document / Interactive presentation of
an innovative game mechanic (made with 3d movies+Flash games).
Will continue this project in the comming year ad refine the concept & art.

Woa shit. Didn't expect that. nice.
Those are really fun too look at... your pencils have a nice variety of line widths and they're nice and clean.
2H speed paints.
Want to do a series of two hour speed paintings, in colour, one layer and try not to use too many tricks like saturation or colour balancing and layer effects.
This is where I stopped after two hours. The idea started as "something with a tropical island" and became this.
Might do some needed distance/lighting changes, although that's beside the point.
I painted a christmas card last christmas. We (Son, lady and I) wanted to cheer up the "Great Pine".
For practice; I wanted to do it without a line drawing/sketch underneath the painting like I always do.
I also wanted to figure out odd lighting without tricks or layer effects, but painting. (weakness)
It took about 4,5 hours and needs many touch ups. I was on a tight time frame with many Xmas interruptions and duties ;P
:: It could be better. ::
Made these today, inspired using pictures from "Dream Worlds" by Hans Bacher.
So had some examples to work with.
Everything was about more "painting in colour" studies and speed.
I did not count the time for smoking brakes, taking a piss or eating. Nerrvishhss...
The time under the pages is drawing time. Hope you like.

Hey, ye bastid, interesting new toys you're bringing
Hm.. you need to break free some more when you're doing the speedily bits, they somehow seem somewhat forced. You sure are getting better at colours and their clearity when colouring! Eh.. if that makes sense. Nwah, methinks you know what I mean, ye younger twin.
nice progress with color!
Thanks matey for the comments, it's true that I've forced these pictures and am still unsettled by doing speedies. Glad you saw it. Coming from you, I am happy to hear my colours are picking up, nevertheless, have a long ways 2go.
I will do more loose speedies soon, these are just variations of existing pictures.
theUNKNOWNsketcher; thank you sir/ma'm, I try.
I recently did an art test for a Dutch company called Spellborn NV.
They've created "The Chronicles of Spellborn", an on-line RPG worth
checking out. One of the cool features is that they use "actual combat"
instead of the usuall battle system and variables used in games like Warcraft
or Warhammer online.
For more info go to: www.tcos.com
I didn't get the position, because they were looking for a lead artist first
before filling another art position. Shame really, had I known that,
I'd have spend every waking hour on it. -_-'
Here are sketches and pieces I made for their test, enjoy.
Please C&C or advice me as much as you'd like
Epicly failed here... Environments are at the top of my study priorities.
