    What are ye sellin stranger

    Hi everyone, I've been a semi lurker for around 3 years now. I really should have started one of these back then. I really want to learn and improve! Its been really inspiring looking through everyone's sketchbook. Please feel free to C&C- its very appreciated!

    Welcome to CA.
    You got very good start. I like it that you keep drawing loose instead of focusing very early on details. I think what would really improve your art is trying to simplify the planes and mass shadows a bit so that the form is more readable and elegant.

    You got something example of how to approach that in Nathan Fowkes blog:

    Also check out overpaint by Greg Pro here (in #12 post) : http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho....php?p=2074018

    Hope it helps.

    Keep posting.

    These were mostly done from Janurary to now, have tried putting them in some sort of order that I did them. Theres a lot of little red riding hood because my my final project at uni was based around little red. Will promise to post more sketchbook and anatomy studies!

    ps- thanks phiq for the encouragement!

    Reall good stuff! I think your strongest pieces are the full environment pieces, like the ones with the little girl walking through the town. They show great detail and compisition. I find my eyes looking over the entire image to absorb the whole thing.

    phiq - hey man! thanks took me a little while to figure out how to make one..kept clicking the wrong button until I saw "avatar" *facepalm*

    keith_v- thank you so much! Its funny because I think my weakest points are environments. I used a few references here and there for them and places like France ( which I love to bits)

    some more sketchbook work and studies. I never know what to show from my sketch books. I left out the weird Illustration stuff and put some studies on here instead
