    Draw or Die

    To See Most Recent Work Please Go To The Last Page
    Hello everyone, my name is Eric. I'm 20 years old ( 22 now), just graduated with my associates in illustration from DCAD and Im eager to start my art career so I'm taking the time to build myself a portfolio for just that. I have an older sketchbook that I've been updating for a few years but I don't believe is reflects my skills anymore and I decided to start a fresh one. To start off I have a few digital paintings and tons of pages from my small sketchbook that I carry with me everywhere. There is a healthy mix of figure and life drawings, character, vehicle, and environment designs. I hope you like.

    Critiques and comments are always welcome.

    Looks great so far! You seem to have a great handle on graphite as a medium. The few digital/color works you posted feel a bit clumsy; they lack the subtle control of value and shape that your pencil works possess. So my suggestion is, more color and more experimenting with other mediums. Keep up the good work!

    Really fun sketchbook to look at. I like your line quality, it's graphic and a little cartoony. But you may want to start using a straight-edge when drawing architecture. Anatomy is good (don't listen to the douche-bags on here that nit-pick about anatomy too much). You also have a good sense of lighting, nicely dramatic in some pics. The only thing I found lacking is texture. Start playing around with just drawing texture and then start incorporating it into your sketches. Please post more, I'll be checking in on your sketchbook.

    Lord Senneian- thank you, you really hit the nail on the head, I've been trying to work on textures recently but more so in photoshop, experimenting with different types of brushes. I honestly never thought about it in my sketches but you're right it would bring it to another level. Thank you.

    Haha, good to hear you graduated, im also at DCAD at the moment.
    Anatomys looking nice, the only things that REALLY bother me are those thick black outlines. Im not against outlines but maybe make them lighter, or add a black background to get rid of them.

    Hey, great SB. I enjoy your designs.

    Looking forward to some more fleshed out images.

    Interesting stuff...

    Some cool designs in your mix. I like that your are doing some figure work. I would like to see more of your stuff worked out like thumbnail ideas working towards the more finished ideas. Anyways looks like you are on the right path just keep going.
