Sweet colors in your environments, I like the opaque shapes - good job!
I like the new imaginative sketch. Maybe push the pose a bit on the troll creature so he is a bit more threatening, but the colours are pretty good. Nothing jumps out at me as looking odd. Maybe just the highlights on the water. Not sure where that light is source is coming from to create these espc since the sky looks so dark and over cast (which I love very moody) Maybe pick up some of the red in the foreground colours to tie the whole composition together. Its def a good studying combing your recent enviro studies and still allowing you to work on illustration and compositions ect.
Think one of the things that could create interesting focal points in an illustration like that this is overlapping forms or repeated or contrasting colours in both the characters to draw your eye. around the composition. But also think about closing the distance between characters to heighten the intensity of the stand off.
Its always good to play around with things its the only way you'll learn I guess. You are def very good with character design maybe research clothing ect from different cultures or periods in history to give your self different design ideas to play around with. Keep it up its all looking good.
I'm definitely liking all of these environment thumbnails- too cool! Out of curiosity, have you tried doing any plein air painting (aka on location)? It might be a fun challenge.
A couple of knight studies from some stock photography online.
I did these sometime during/after the knight piece posted earlier. Learned quite a lot from them and it was good to practice painting all that texture in the background, I had to make a few custom brushes and also played around with the noise filter. I think its pretty good for subtle texture/detail.
Really great improvement, and you're still quite young so you got loads of time ahead of you.
I'd like to see more imaginative work from you as it's mostly studies. Show us how you're applying them!
Really love the clothing studies; I'd love to see more!
great studies man, really love the softness you get in those figure studies
Really wonderful studies. You've got those proportions down just right, and your value work is excellent. I also really like your character designs. Keep posting!
Oooh, nice work there mate. The color is fantastic.
You've come a long way from the start of your sketchbook.
Lovely solid figures!
You're slowly doing more and more designs. Take your time with the fundamentals, because you can't know enough fundamentals.
To give your characters and extra edge you could use a textured brush for the fabric materials, a smooth one for the metal work, another for wood and so on. That way, apart from the specular, the different materials can be easily distinguished.
Keep up the good work.
Nice sb! first page and last are so different. Like how you're co,bining studies and imagination work
i really dig last sketches,
