    Alright, here I go... My Sketchbook 09/10!

    Hey
    I'm Liz, I'm in my first year of Computer Games Art at Teesside Uni... I'm feeling a bit stuck in a rut art-wise at the moment so I'm posting this in the hope you guys'll give me the kick in the backside I need to stop being lazy and push myself some more

    All going well, I'll be updating with new sketches etc every few days. Please, any advice/criticism is greatly appreciated

    Thank you!

    I have huge trouble with skintones. Here's Francis from Left 4 Dead as practice! Took me 2 - 3 hours perhaps:

    Alright I've not done much recently - been kinda busy I did this while in a Left 4 Dead mood though. Not too happy with her eyes/face in general, but I may as well throw it up here:

    edit: added some more I've done just now. The first are from photo reference (the free samples from that anatomy for the artist site) and the next is a 25 - 30 min painting of Yuri Shevchuk from photo reference

    Hi!

    Really solid self portrait - the colors are great. About the L4D girl 3 posts up, then I think the problem is that the nose/mouth is seen almost in profile while the eyes are not. The top face in this Kevin Chen drawing illustrates what i mean:

    Keep drawing!

    Thanks! You're right about the L4D girl, I did figure that out after not looking at it for a while, but I haven't mustered the energy to go back and fix her yet.

    They are all great drawings/sketches, etc., the self portrait is the best though, great attention to detail in all.

    Definitely looks like a sketchbook of an aspiring concept artist.
    Great work! That 2nd environment you posted is awesome! I love that blocky brush you use.
    And I can give you a kick in the backside whenever you'd like

    Thanks guys

    I'd rather not post the original photo

    Here's some more stuff!
    The drawing of my living room and the "underwater shopping mall" were done for my drawing and composition assessment. The others are just doodles from my sketchbook

    I'll update with something substantial when... I've done something substantial!

    Fantastic stuff so far! Your painting is great (far better than anything I could produce at the moment), shows a hella lot of potential. Just keep on practicing and you'll go far!
