    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.



    Hello people.

    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

    Enjoy

    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.
    Post some more finished works

    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

    Awesome

    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)

    Excellent work. Only crit I can kinda give you is: even though you have a great sense of color, try pushing yourself by using some more interesting or exotic color palettes. Keep it up you da man. I'll go do some studies in this spirit myself now.

    definitely some good stuff going on. you should work from life more, though. your photo and still shot studies are much more solid and well realized than the stuff from life. much like working in pencil/paint is better for pushing your skill set than working digitally, working from life will always make your still studies stronger, while the opposite is not necessarily true.

    keep at it!

    The Braveheart one is definitely my fav. The way you worked it reminds me of something I would see on a storyboard panel!

    How long did the Terminator warmup take you? And how in the world do you warm up with a painting?! lol.

    You environment is a little confusing...I hope you dont mind that I drew over your painting, just wanted to illustrate some of the perspective issues going on. Hope this helps!

    WICKED concept dude 2 quick crits man

    the horizon line looks a little high for the perspective you have got for the passage leading us further away

    and green can either be a warm or cool color as far as light goes right now its a blue green light so just remember that since right now those are the only light sources the shadows are going to be a warm color "temperature wise "

    (tell me if that doesnt make sense im pretty tired right now)

    waiting patiently to see it further along, keep it coming mate !

    :::: i wrote this all before seeing the above poster heh anyways thanks for dropping by my SB

    Woo great studies! I'm amazed how much color you can get into those. Perhaps taking some of that variation and applying it to the WIP? I don't know much about perspective/color-theory, but the painting is kinda monotone right now. Mix it up!

    Also, remember to work on other stuff! Your color studies look great, and it seems like you're focusing on environments, but characters are also important.
