    This sketchbook of mime **updated 04/27/09**

    After lurking here around the forums for a long while, and making use of the excellent help and inspiration everybody here has to offer, I have finally have the need to share my work with the rest of you.

    Having a sketchbook here will encourage me to do more of my own personal work, while finishing my last year of my four year design degree.

    Starting off are a some landscape studies, based off of local western Canadian landscapes, but with stuff added. Corel offers the painter program to my school for cheap as a way to support students and advertise, so far I'm liking it it more than Photoshop (though it has it's uses). I'm thinking of doing the monolithic one as the final, larger version, but with more depth and glowy bits. What do you guys think?

    Nice ones! You're creating very brave and interesting cool/warm pics, but there's something strange in the observatory one, especially with the gray building in the front, and the white stroke that goes down the mountain, under the observatory tower. keep in mind that warm colours tend to go to the front, and cool ones,to the back.

    Thanks!

    Agreed for the architecture, I think the observatory in the background is way too large for the scale of the mountains. Though, we were taught warm colours should also be used to draw the user's attention to the main area of interest since cools recede, and this project specifically was to do mid ground lit, foreground shadow.

    Here's another dump

    A sponge alien from outer space, and a sketch of Frank, who hunts them with an electrified harpoon.

    Some beautiful environments you've got here. The colour choices really bring them to life. I wonder, do you actually paint them in layers or all on the one?
    YOur digital colouring, especially in the comic strip need sharper edges to pop and show detail.

    Keep it up

    Hey dude! Great stuff going down here. I would suggest you try and be a little more subtle in the tones, right now you seem to be a little all over the place.

    Also you could probably benefit from more studies, but that is something that is true for all of us

    thanks for the comment man, nice to see you post here too!
    still really like your four environment studies, the prush strocks looks really confident and accurate, you should do more stuff like that.

    Landscapes excellent! It is necessary to work even over construction of anatomy and persons of people.
