    Space wizard art training

    REALLLLLLLLLLLLY OLD

    Hey CA, Ill introduce myself I'm a 16 yr old kid living down under, my dream is to be a concept artist when I finish my education or at least have an occupation that has something to do with art. Ive been a lurker for awhile and finally decided to start my own sketchbook

    Here is my very first attempt at digital art, finally pushed my self to try it out and its probably the most fun Ive had with art in a long time. It's a colour study using a ref, I made the mistake of using a semi low resolution and it came back and bit me on the arse when I was detailing the face and hands. Tomorrow I should upload a few other pencil sketches

    Crits are appreciated

    The standing lady could use some help anatomically. Legs are off.

    Try some studies with simple objects to get the hang of color, light, and just the way digital painting works. I'm pretty sure the official starter subject in digital painting here at ConceptArt is the apple, haha.
    Artists have such a magnificent gift...breathing life into something with just simple lines.

    i say to continue with the quick studies, they look very nice. experiment with different line styles with your pencil, and possibly use even more darks that you already do, to up the contrast.

    keep it up!

    The trick I will tel you is observe detail 24/7. When you walk in the street, look at people walking, standing, try to figure out there bone, there muscle. Look at light, face detail, eyes direction. Alway be aware of what it's around you. Then put on paper what you saw. then look as ref, anatomy, light test to reproduce what is in your mind.

    and....practice practice practice.

    Psychoboy what do you mean you hope it is gouache?

    Lots of homework is piling up since the end of term is approaching but i managed to squeeze in a update, just a few action poses and another chick. I hate my lines, any tips to improve them?

    One study, one WIP concept of some random alien, and my 'pop art sculpture' which I had to make for school. The sculpture is made out of cardboard, newspaper and tissue paper.

    Just for kicks here's a background for the alien.

    Flirons are a god like race. They have unimaginable power, fueled by the small sun like entity occupying their skull. This entity is in itself a natural fusion reactor like a sun and is what gives the Flirons their power. Because of this Flirons need no food, no water and especially no sleep.

    I've uploaded some pics of my 'postmodern' sculpture(sorta based on a crab) I had to do for my art class, its made out of 18 coke cans for the legs, a fishing reel for the body, chicken wire for the claws and three rods for the leg structure. It was a battle making those coke can legs, my hands look more spliced up than an emos after their mum told them to stop using all her mascara. Even though it was relatively fun making this sculpture I'd prefer to do some more traditional stuff for a change. The other upload is just a new digital study using a ref of course(I would blend it more, but I want to continue on something else).

    edit: reworked the study a bit, I'm so frustrated with it I'm just going to leave it for now

    Elwells quote today
    You don't "make the jump." You work on both at the same time. If you wait until you are "ready," you may never be.
    is amazing advice, i never really tried to much from imagination work after I did studies, so i did some today and realized I had a lot of work in front of me. Here are some more bridgman studies, no ref drawings are worthy enough yet.

    Some new bridgman studies, I tried to draw heads from my imagination but they always turned out cartoony, probably because of my doodles at school lol. I'll start including the imagination practice when it gets better

    Fraz: Cheers man, dont you worry there will be alot more than that came from.

    Heres a self potrait that took way to long to do, and a little plasticine monster head which is 4 cm big, it was just to try a different medium out, pretty fun i must say.

    Keep up the good work man, you have a real strong rendering style i think you should keep in mind what makes it work and just develop it so youve got controll over it, thats my opinion though touching it might kill it i dunno!

    good to have you in the ssg anyway!

    The nose in your SP looks kind of wierd, like squished. But I like the rest. Looks really painterly. Maybe try to blend it more and try get it more photorealistic?
