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

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

Just messin' around:
Self portrait, 5hrs or so from a photo reference
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:
The self portrait looks really great, could we see the original photo ?
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
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!
nice start to your SB, but if you want to get anyware, you can't afford to be lazy, so get off your arse and draw girl. I'll help AG, and give ya one too.
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!
Any inspiration and motivation seems to have gone out the window lately but here's some stuff I've done recently. The sketchbook drawings are from my visit to Portmeirion this weekend, but it was too cold and wet to sit down and do anything more than a few 5 minute sketches couple of doodles from the train ride too but nothing special. Also started sketching a character for uni work but I'm not sure where he's going yet
Alright, here's a quick drawing of Patrick McGoohan as "Number Six", some life drawings from today, and another self portrait
nice paitnings, this is a good start to a sketchbook. The life drawings aren't bad but watch out ofr foreshortening, things are more exagerated than you think. Your course sounds interesting, i had a quick look up, I'm scared of all that 3d stuff though. are you enjoying it?
Thanks waffleKoan, glasses are a huuge pain! Note I didn't wear them for the last self portrait xD
Smarty: Thank you. What do you mean by the foreshortening - I'm exaggerating things too much or not enough? My course is interesting indeed and I'm enjoying it a lot. The only 3d work I've done is on this course and I think I'm picking it up pretty fast, though we're only doing simple props and vehicles right now. It's not as scary as I first thought
not enough, the knee and near foot of that big woman would be bigger me thinks if you sight sized it. Oh cool. I'm a first year illustration at UWE (bristol). It's great, but sometimes i feel like i'm shoehorning my concept work in. Still i get to work on a lot of fundamentals.
Love the last self portrait
And maybe you should paint that fat lady, hehe.
Thanks Smarty, I'll keep an eye out for that next time I go
AG - She's a regular model, I've painted her a lot!
anyways, another quick self portrait and a character sketch
I like the digital brushes and colors, other stuff is good too.
I've not got much to update, not until I find my camera anyway. Then I have meercat sketches!
Until then, Rorshach:
Not been too productive today, just some doodles:
very good faces, nice eye placement. watch out how the neck attaches to the head though, they seem a little off
