    Weelow's art and sketchwork

    A friend of mine here on ConceptArt, Loathsome, told me to do a thread with some of my stuff so here we go.

    Hopefully I'll get more active here soon enough too.

    Just something I did while watching/listening to a Crimson Dagger live stream today. It turned out okay but it could use a lot of fixing up

    Photoshop painting of a Manikin bird. The only reason to why I picked this bird is because they look like they can moonwalk when they try to attract a mate haha

    Good god this piece took forever. But it's done now.
    The ref photo I used was one of the picture of the day photos on National Geographic's website.
    More pictures to come

    A picture I did for a contest on deviantart. The club that holds the contest was created to help people improve so I thought it was worth doing c:

    I don't really like this picture too much but I am happy with all the things I learned while doing this so in that way I like it.

    Sweet designs! That mantis looks totally kickass too, I can't say I know anything about digital painting but the colouring on the mantis looks a lot more natural than the others to me

    Haha yeah I spend a whole lot of time on that one. And it's a bit easier to paint an exoskeleton than feathers and fur

    Heya, liking your work so far! Keep up the studies. I have stacks of old national geogrpahics that I draw from - they are great. I pick them up from charity shops usually. Anyway keep up the good work.

    Thanks man I appreciate it c:
    Here's another master study that once again took a lot longer than expected haha
    Oh and I only used a part of the ref for this because if I were to do the whole painting it'd take forever and I'd pretty much die

    A portrait I just finished today. I would've been happier with it if I didn't use a grid to get everything right lmao. Next time I do a portrait I'm going to do it without using a grid because I don't wanna be stuck using it

    Hey I really enjoy your character designs! They're fantastically whimsical but I feel they have a lot of culture and personality.

    I think your painting method is kind of smudgy/airbrushed/blurry, which can make the colors muddy and the values vague. Using a harder brush at full opacity will force you to be more deliberate about every decision. Also, I think a more deliberate style will transfer well into your imaginative stuff. Keep it up.

    Ah thank you, I've always been bothered by that in my painting and I haven't been too sure on what to do really. I will try this and thanks again.

    A value study I started on yesterday and finished today. When I finished the last one I was all "Damn I should have made it look like rock, paper, scissors" but I couldn't be bothered to make yet another one c:
