    Here is some older stuff.

    These are a couple photo references and then an attempted landscapes. These pictures are older than the ones before.

    I still don't really have a style.. my pictures always seem to change from something slightly rendered to other loose stuff.

    Nice, your landscapes here and the old man look really really good. I think the old man is my favorite. The detail you put in the hair and eyes and expressions is really nice and the skin looks good as well.

    just relocating these images so i can change the thumbnail of this thread esier.
    and since someone asked if i was inspired by sinix.. I'll just write it here I watched sinix's videos and was inspired so these mechas are sinix's style not claiming nothing but the rendering D

    hey man, good start. are those droid drawings inspired by sinix?

    for tips: maybe try drawing geometric shapes (cilinder, sphere, cone) more, to really, really understand how to put something 3d on a 2d surface. to get the 3d feel right, you have to have the relationship between the light and the shadows correct.

    cya, good luck mate

    yup inspired by sinix
    but i swear he stole the signature from me O.o D
    i had that before i saw his sketchbook and videos
    but yea I dont really own a style yet.. so i kinda get inspired from other people draw.. and i hope it will evolve into something different thats my own :L

    thanks for the tip. Ill do that.

    some interesting stuffs
    might i recommend some bigger brushes to block in the main forms shapes etc
    eg this one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1218396212
    the tiny brush with the jagged strokes doesnt compliment it at all...aside from that though, you have a decent grasp on colours
    also, this one
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1218396191
    is really really cool, quite eerie aswell
    keep going!

    Thanks for your comment. Definetely follow that tip concerning bigger brushes. It really helps blocking in with those at first and then go from there. Keep it up
