    Cars, Flying Taxis, Starships, and Whatever Else I Suck At

    Hi, my name's Kirill, and I'm relatively new to CA. I'm a 23 year old amateur designer, starting in CCS in Fall '09. I'll be majoring in Transportation Design, but I also have a very strong interest in concept art and illustration, so hopefully I'll be taking some classes in that too. I'm trying to improve as much as possible with my drawing techniques, and digital painting in particular.

    I greatly appreciate feedback, and would love to hear some strong constructive critiques on my work. Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!

    Hey mate. If you're looking to get into art center Those cars in your first post should definately be included.

    For things to study I'd say that for the type of drawing you're interested in perspective is number one. You will be able to build anything once you have strong skills in perspective that will be perfect for your robots, cars and architecture, even people.
    Apart form perspective I think it would be a good idea to get some markers and do some silhouettes of robots and cars. It will help you think about shapes and how the design reads overall. There's examples in my sketchbook in my latest post for some silhouettes I did of a character.
    To make these in photshop I use the angled chizel point calligraphic brush. then set the angle jitter to pen tiolt so it feels like a real marker. Then you can switch between eraser and brush to cut back the black and things liek that.

    Hope that helps!

    Edit: oh yeah forgot to mention http://www.posemaniacs.com . If you do an hour-2 hours of this daily it will help you improve heaps.

    CamSyko: Hey thank you very much for the feedback! Wow, those silhouettes in your sketchbook look awesome, and must've been pretty quick to do - I will definitely try to pick up on that technique! I'm gonna have to take advantage of that website also, never heard of it before, thanks a lot!

    I like the race buggy.

    It reminds me of my all time favorite Mitsubishi RPM 7000.

    Trying to get better at drawing portraits and digital painting at the same time. This was an attempted self-portrait, but not having a mirror around made it only slightly look like me. The eyes are pretty crooked, I think... gotta practice those.

    As a sidenote, just got rejected by Art Center, so looks like I'll be going to CCS next Fall.

    Dang, I need to have a major overhaul of that original post to keep this as a sketchbook, instead of a portfolio... That whole process is over with anyway for now.

    I decided to do some eye studies, definitely making progress. In fact, the last one did turn out to look a lot like mine, which was the intent. I gotta get some kind of a small mirror for a decent self-portrait, drawing from memory is hard.

    Those are some nice figures that you drew, Kono. I'd like to see some more color-related stuff.

    Really liking that last post with the cars - and the portraits are coming along nicely!

    I agree with seraph, some more colour studies would be awesome.

    PheKt: Thanks a lot!

    Here's a relatively quick paint I did in Photoshop earlier today, about an hour. Definitely new to "space" art, but it was a lot of fun.

    nice painting.
    i suggest you give sharper subjects a harder edge so the your picture doesn't look like a blur of colors.

    a la bapsi: Thanks for the feedback! That's the hard part for me right now, putting just the right amount of detail in the objects while keeping the time spent low. I easily get bogged down in details as soon as I start using small brushes with sharper edges, so I purposely decided to stick to a bigger brush here. This is definitely something I need to work on though, I'm sure next time will be better
