Thanks for the nice comments!
As for character art, I will post a couple soon.
I am not as strong with characters as with environments and props I think..
Maybe its my industrial design background ( I've been doing ID fro 18 years!)
This is unrelated to your post about your portfolio, and more related to your background in ID. You can pm me an answer since this will not be applicable to this thread. I was just wondering if you could give me a basic idea of the kind of work you ahve done as an industrial designer. I am a freshman Illustration major but my school offers an excellent program in ID and I was slightly curious about it. At this point in my school career switching majors would do me no harm and I just wanted to explore my possibilities. I'm just asking for a basic idea and perhaps even an example of some of the things you have done. If you have the time this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!!!!
You have a lot of great ideas and each piece is wonderfuly executed, though I think in some areas you should have a broader value range, for example somtimes you have the darkest darks next to the lightest lights.
Cool stuff for sure - a nice polish tip is to nail down the surface with a little dirt and grime or super highlights. Helps crisp up the round brush blur. basically adding a super focused point on the object.
Just laying in a grungy photo as an overlay then adjusting it to fit the perspective can do wonders for metal/stone stuff.
environment art is always in higher demand than character art anyways. With that said, your character art isn't bad. Try sketching more from life - it will help you get more confident and fluid. Also, do apply your badass industrial design knowledge of shapes and forms onto your characters. I'm very envious of your sweet environ pieces.
The environments are coming along nicely, i think you should push some more finish into some areas of the characters, and give the viewer some to focus on. The brush can get distracting otherwise. Overall good stuff though and good luck with the job search.
