    Dana's Sketch Book, Updated 2-29-2045

    I haven't kept a CA sketchbook for a little while now, but really want to get back into it again. I really need to continual feedback. So here we go..

    The first two are studies done from photo reference, credit to the original photographer. And the third image is a WIP shot of some weapon designs I a trying to finish up. Love to hear any thoughts you guys might have, otherwise I will be posting again soon. Thanks for looking.

    hi! judging from your studies, your brushwork and colours are sweet. i dont know anything about weapons so that might be hard for me to crit. but to me they look solid

    Hi there! I like your second landscape, no crit... But I think you must post original landscape photos for us... So we can compare 8))

    p.s. : weapon design looks cool!

    keep it on!

    I think the first painting could do with a little more contrast (I'm still lacking proper terminology), but the second one is simply stunning.

    hey there, like the 1st environment and the weapon design looks good, composition wise though, you could move the mountain a bit to the side so it is not dead on centre and may add more interest, keep it up

    tja88- Thanks a lot! I'm trying to dive back into digital painting, and have been experimenting with a lot of new brushes. Still trying to figure out what works for me, but glad you like it..

    NewmanD- Thanks dude!

    Inishmore- I just got very similar critique from my friend. I think I was struggling to get a handle on some new brushes I was working with and didn't quite pull the image together with the timelimit I set for myself. But the second landscape came out a bit better I think. Thanks for the feedback!

    LMK- Good point, the composition could be a bit more thought out. Thanks for looking.

    Here are a couple recent pages, some vehicle thumbnails and a chick wearing a helmet. Hope you guys dig them:

    Wr00m- Thanks!

    Alright here's my contribution for today, a PS sketch of this heavily armored guy. He's supposed to be wearing qasi-futuristic riot gear/ armor. The second image shows a few characters I came up with while hanging out at the coffee shop with a couple friends, sort a post-apocalyptic group. Hope you enjoy, and always I appreciate the feedback.

    I really like that last sketch. It looks very...dynamic? (On top of lacking terminology English also isn't my native language) Though I think the right guy's arms look a little too short/thin. But that may be just me.

    Keep it up and thank you for the lovely feedback in my sketchbook!

    Inishmore- Thanks, and your English sounds fine to me

    NewmanD- Thank you, I appreciate it.

    Small update, I finished up the weapon designs I had been working on. It was definately a fun challenge to design them all, really reinforced how important silhouette is to design.

    Cool weapon designs I really like the right/third one in the very top row. Are these based on specific weapons? (Like, the one on the very lft in the top row has a slightly "Star Trek"-ish feel to me, I wonder if it's on purpose or whether it's just me)
