    Tea's Sketchbook ...of DOOM

    Hello everyone, this i my 1st post on this forum.

    When I began to study architecture in college I realized how much concept art really meant to me.

    I have decided to dedicate myself to it seriously and registered to this forum after seeing the amount of incredible artists that display their work here.I would really love to get some advice and criticism from you guys.

    Hey man- honestly- I dont know how likely you'd be to land a gig as a concept guy... I'd use the architecture study to get into some 3d modeling and then work on your concepts on the side. It's a cut throat business and there's tons of people going for the very few concept jobs, a beginner like you has no chance competing with even entry level concept guys, let alone the pros.

    As for constructive tips, get your @$$ out to some figure drawing classes/session- try to take a weekly night class at an art school and also do an additional session or two at an open session. You'll need years of life drawing for your stuff to start lookin' decent. On top of that, drawing from life at a coffee shop or at the beach or at school, whatever, also helps... for some basic anatomy I recommend Bridgeman's and Hogarth books.

    DRAW TONS every week. Fill sketch pages with real life drawings. That's the basic tip. If you're lookin' for work though, I'd say try 3d to get an art job while you improve your 2d. There's more modeling jobs than concept stuff.

    hope that helps man. dont mean to sound harsh, but your stuff is rough and you know it.

    cheers-

    Thank you Ragnar. It's the kind of comments I'v been looking for. I won't give up on my art tough, hard work doesn't scare me.

    Hearing something from an accomplished concept artist like you means a lot to me.

    Today i had a Yoga class, but since the teacher is absolutely horrible most of the people fell asleep when he was explaining . I sketched some of them, concentrating myself on the motion. Here is what it gave. I also did a quick sketch of people in the metro on my way home. Not teh best place to sketch tough since the metro in Montreal is shaky (like anywhere else I suppose?) .

    Ok so today I decided to practice reflections on metal surfaces and drawed my perforator... I messed up one of the handles tough and may redraw it in the following days.

    And yes it took me 4 hours... I don't know, I guess I'll draw faster with more practice.

    Here is a drawing of Nihlathak (a character from Diablo 2). I think I messed up some of the face's proportions, but i wanted him to have thin eyes and a small mouth.

    Hi Tea, good to see the studies, try to keep those up.
    And don't worry you'll be drawing faster with every sketch!

    Happy hoildays mate,

    Here are some landscape swatches I worked on this week. I tried to concentrate on values in all 3 of them.

    The nigth atmosphere in the 1st one came out very contrasted. It looks kinda nice I guess but it somehow doesn't seem quite natural. Too much high key values?

    The sunset (second swatch) came out wrong. Seems like the trees are overly green (need to be darker) and the area behind the house is unclear. Also, lack of cold colours.

    I tried some pastel colors for the third one. The shadows were hard to introduce but I like the relation I got between the different colors. There is a feeling of softness emanating from the values.

    I like how the fourth one came out. I tried to create a focus point when painting it so I added the motif on the facade of the temple. 2 versions for this one: with and without the blue trees in the background.
