    Lakeland's Sketchbook.

    Hello Im Lakeland.
    Im 27 y.o.
    I work as a graphic designer in advertisement. My main field
    of work is everything between business cards and Large format prints.
    I also work in Sony Vegas and Premier for 3D/photo/camera based commercial spots that are ment for indoor and outdoor city displays.


    I got my self a Wacom Intuos 3 A5 Tablet 2 weeks ago and there was a spasm in my soul deep inside once I drew first line. I feel like that kid with his crayons back in the good old days, when I spent hours drawing "war & soldiers" or Teenage Mutan Ninja Turtles.

    Anyway... I decided to start putting my "work" here since I realy dont have anyone to talk about it. I work basicly most of the day and live hour away from the city. That makes attending to any drawing classes too difficult to fit in the week's scheduel.

    My main issues now is harnassing the power of the tablet. I work with Painter and Photoshop for effects and tuning. I admit that Im overwhelmed by it. I feel completely lost when it comes to tools like brushes and workflow.

    Feel free to point out a direction I should go to develope my self in anyway.

    Thanks in advance.

    The story behind any picture helps to work.
    King Ymir's chamber was clear and quiet... when he turned his sight away from the kingdom maps, a cloaked figure appeared.

    Another one from today.
    I decided not to use any colours untill I practice the light and shadow composition. So far it makes my work so much easier. I can focus only on the light and the geometry. Colors have this ability to distract me from importandt things in the scene.

    Still having problems with perspective and angles, but I hope practice will make that come to perfection

    And another pic i made today.
    Im proud of the fog layer and I think the shadow light distribution went quite good on the stones. Still I think i missed the base floor surface here, making the perspective wrong, especially with the character there in the back. Seems to be off the ground and too small in size. oh well.

    hehe... I made it to the point I crit my own work on this forum

    Hello Again.
    Another update from me.
    Needed to try some colours. the grayness made me depressed
    Good thing though on this one, I went full photoshop. the opacity and transparence handling is Waaaaay better than the one in Painter.

    Fun Stuff so far. First thought on how to improve would just be to let yourself have more time on each piece. I know you are probably skipping around right now though to have a chance to try different things. Have a good New Year!

    Hi Lakeland,
    Nice face studies. I like that you tried to tackle them from different angles.
    One thing I would recommend is to check your proportions and proper placement first before you go into details. For example the eyes in your face study are usually too high - eyes are usually dead center in the head shape and I think it would make your faces more realistic.

    Keep drawing!
