    Jonnydark's Arms Race of Creativity

    Hello!

    I'm jonathan and i'm a huge fan of conceptart's philosophy... to help artists connect, showcase and most importantly of all... learn! Since i'm in the summer between first and second year of illustration i felt i needed some sort of help getting better... And this is the best freaking spot on the net to do that.

    To start off i figured i'd show what i sketched tonight:

    Jonnydark's Arms Race of Creativity
    Jonnydark's Arms Race of Creativity
    Jonnydark's Arms Race of Creativity

    I also did these two tonight... If you don't like transformers and robots you better avert your eyes at this point.

    The rest were done recently, within the last few months.

    I'm not particularly proud of how the colours turned out on this devastator... i really rushed a few steps then tried to repair it when i should have started over. Does anyone know good robot painting tutorials?

    as you can tell i'm a big fan of the smoke trick. No more room on the page? no problem! Just add smoke!

    Okay that's enough for now.

    Stay tuned for more stuff... and thanks for looking!

    Hey mate; some good stuff here I think you need to slow down on your sketching though: at the moment there are quite a few lazy lines and an overall lack of definition. I like the trooper with the big backpack!
    Please give erudite, constructive critiques or give none at all.

    phiq - I am such an impatient drawer... i just want to get stuff on to the page as fast as possible! I will definitely try and slow down and draw with care. Thanks to you i've started looking at some Anatomy for the Artist books... and i'll pull out Virtual pose and sketch some of those in the future. Thanks!

    Peter Berkovski - what is construction? i've never heard of that term before. Thanks man!

    I do not know either what does it mean when someone says that you are lack of construction, but I would like to know it.
    I would advice to use darker lines when you draw. I like how you did the concept of the trooper with the backpack and the medic and how you digital painted them. Great work.
