A Biomecha_wolf's sketchbook..***Dont forget to check last page too lolz ***
How all ya doing?
I am a 20 yo guy from Greece who just discovered the world of concept art and decided to show some of his nooby work^^
I like almost all fields of concept art but especially enviroments- +1 for urban- and industrial design.
I bought a small pen tablet and i just discovered its use on "speed painting".Not fully although.I still need a lot to learn, but i am sure i will learn it here^^
Here is just something i was planing to finish it but i thought it would be better to begin a new one.(so its unfinished) The result wasnt what i expected cause i dont know any good tips for the "add detail" factor.
any feedback will make me more than grateful.
and btw sorry if i just murdered the english language

First of all welcome tou CA.
Thats a good start here and you sure have to post more.
I will suggest using even more hard edged brushes so that you will only blur the far places that you dont want us to focus.
I like it in general and i think you are on a good way.
Also when you feel study something more, check out a little more about atmospheric perspective.It will give even more depth
Keep up!!!! geia sou re kab!!!

Nice.Very nice mood.I also see some depth in here and that makes my eye flow normal in the piece.
It just need sharpening(not by tool) but by the amount of brush strokes.Thats something you will understand if you keep up, and you are close pal!!!!
Keep training until we will wanna live inside the enviroments

Your opinions/feedback is something more than precious to me and also its a motive to continue^^
i will just post an unfinished job here, like an exercise in the "background section" and also just like Rostas metioned , in the composition area. Basically only the middle tower is half-way finished for the detail part.And also now that i see it, the left tower is about to colapse :p
Anyway,here wiiii go

The first thing I see is that your paintings lacks depth. This can be achieved in many ways, but a good place to start is with atmospheric perspective. I see you have some knowledge of it, but it will become even stronger if you keep in mind these things:
- Add more elements in the background so the atmospheric depth gradually becomes more and more present.
- I think it helps a lot to squint your eyes every now and then, in order to see the whole image clearer. This way its easier to decide with colours to use etc.
But the major thing you really need to work on is lighting. Light shows form and depth. I suggest looking up Scott Roberson's DVD on lighting. I found it very helpful. ( thegnomonworkshop.com ) More instructional DVD pointed towards environmental painting that I really like can be found on the same site under Dylan Cole and others. If you don't have the money there's a ton of tutorials here on conceptart.org too. Search the net and remember to draw a lot.
I also agree with the previous comments that you should study some photos. You'll learn a lot.
Good luck. Be sure to keep it up

Decent start. Start using hard edges and make things less fuzzy.

Ok, here we go
The year is 2086 and we are at the EAK ("Eastern Alliance Kingdom").Behold the great capital city of Esperia, a city that survived many raids and being destroyed tons of times by that merciless enemy who threatens mankind.This whole climate of fear,courage,alert is highly sensible in the streets,in the market,in the faces of people , as the tons of militant buildings and army patrol vehicles/air force leave the city everyday to secure the borders of this fragile section..
