The Occasional Sketch portfolio time:) (Updated each time I post)
Thought Id redo this introduction Here goes nothingXD
My name is Eric, I'm 25 atm, and I'm trying to improve my skills so I can one day (hopefully soon) attend ACCD for entertainment design. I have worked hard the past few months studying fundamentals and I think its about time I start working on my entrance portfolio. So get ready for a lot of studies and eventually a portfolio piece or two or three or twenty five Any critiques and or comments will be greatly appreciated and hopefully processed through my dumb head 0_____o
New work on last page!
Wow, the stuff on these first pages are awful, please go to the last page.
I have made this here sketchbook for a few reasons. Those reasons are to show my sketches and studies, and receive some old-fashioned C&C in order to progress forward towards my dream of becoming a professional concept artist. I am counting on all of you to help push me towards that dream. I will try to update as much as I can.
I'll use this first post to show updates

Well, I had the idea that I would learn light and color theory faster if I would do studies from the awesome artists who work in the film industry, so here are some studies from film stills. These were done yesterday.
First is study of a still from The Exorcism of Emily Rose.
Second is a study from a still from Braveheart.
Third is a study from a still from the movie District 9.
Fourth is a study from a photo by NikxStock.deviantART.com

I like the first photo study, maybe because it has a more finished look.

Thx for crit paperhead
Thx NickyBeats, will do, will do
Thx Med, some themed stuff sounds good about now.
Sorry for the lack of updates guys. I have had a virus for all week. But I'm starting to feel better now, so hopefully I can get something up sometime tonight.
dang hope you are 100% soon ! really digging the first of post #3
these are great, i'd love to see more of your sketches and study
sort of stuff from your sketchbook these all look like you are aiming for a polished piece at the end
hope to see more soon keep up the wonderfull work
Nice portraits ma dude! I've seen some really good ones like yours here and it makes me want to give it a shot!
Hey ! Thanks for dropping by my sb
Good stuff i see on ur sb, good keen eye on observation
now to push urself technically even further, do more blending, and keep the form in shape, do lesser soft brush on the edge. stuff like that , just push urself even more on the learning curve
very good and acurate portrait. Values, light, shadow and volume are well rendered
now you can try to make portrait from imagination (which is a lot harder ,but permit you yo improve a lot)
Thx Zorcron, I'll try and post some soon.
Thx Umpa, portraits are fun to do.
Thx for the solid critzalxemptyx.
Thx Twan, I will give it a shot
Here's a sketch from this morning, about two hours so far.
C&C always welcome
