    Heya guys! Thanks for the comments, just wanted to post that the second part of my 2 part tutorial series on ideation is up, it's a long and pretty in-depth read, so have a squiz!

    Ideation Process: Part 2

    Now, up to this point, we’ve been thinking of the sketches as a personal tool, that is, an external representation of a myriad of internal ideas in an attempt to organise free flowing thoughts into a structured pattern for our own personal use.

    We have part of the design in our minds and this can often cause us to stop short of creating sketches that mean anything to anyone but ourselves.

    This situation would be fine if the work we are doing is only for ourselves, however, most often the art we doing isn’t just for fun, it’s because someone is paying us to deliver.

    These people need to understand what we are thinking at every step of the process to reduce the likelihood of going in the wrong direction down the line - it saves them time (and money) and it saves you the frustration of having to do major rework.

    So this is a very important consideration to keep in mind (important enough that I am reiterating it) - as commercial artists, we NEVER operate in a vacuum, our work is generally part of a greater whole, in editorial enhancing the writing or as concept art which precedes the asset building phase of game or film development.

    In short, we need to share our ideas effectively with other people, and most often with people who are not artists.

    Cleaning Up



    In the above example, I chose to clean up this design because I felt the character had a certain amount of potential for experimentation – it was also the least developed and would demonstrate the process between a rather abstract image built of large shapes and how you would begin to add in the design elements gradually.

    In this case, I also increased the resolution to 1221px by 657px so that I would be comfortable while adding the details. I’d also like to mention that in most of the concept art positions I have worked, the bulk of this kind of work is done as a rough guide for the 3D artists who tend to work with dual monitor set ups, so print versions were not really required. If however, you need to generally print off your work, stick to working on at least A4, this will allow you sufficient detail to print off on A4 sheets.

    Silhouettes

    Like everything else in art, ideation is a fluid process that does not always take the same route. Indeed I would even go as far as to encourage you to constantly venture upon the path less travelled in order to derive new processes, new styles and new ways of thinking.

    Creating silhouettes are simply another form of visual shorthand, a tool that can be used as a fore-runner to a fully fledged design besides line and tonal sketches.

    Thanks again for sharing your information with us Magic Man. I was wondering, if you have the time, could you take a quick look at my sketchbook and give me some feedback?

    Cheers buddy

    Being someone who wants to be a professional artist, and just starting to really understand how art and drawing works, I like your philosophy. Someone can be a great artist and a terrible person. Art may be ones passion, but you cannot cut other things out, you have to strike some sort of balance, I find those are generally the qualities who make people most successful at the things they do. I'll be checking back on your sketchbook to inspire me, and to see what other insightful things you may have to say. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to look at your work ;D

    FEED THE SKETCHBOOK

    Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Nobody made good art by coloring in between the lines.

    ah great stuff..

    just tohught I'd comment on this picture on the right - http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1278858098 - Having one's head turned at an angle that sharp would really pop out the sterno mastoid muscle. I have to say it looks pretty awkward overall, that's a really sharply turned head, but with a relaxed expression. Anyway, I know you said not crit worthy but I just wanted to anyway !

    keep possstinggg

    every once in a blue moon I stop by this site and I was very surprised to see this sketchbook! glad to read your life is in order... your art comes from a very imaginative place that feels familiar, guess it has been years since I began looking at your art. Anyway, keen to see what you do with oils, they are a lot of fun once you get the hang of them.

    Duuuude, I've missed a few updates now, stupid subscribe thing clearly isnt working! Awesome stuff. Love the details. Man you gotta make some vids of a big artwork soon, really want to pick your brain on how you do things. Drawings are beautiful also, amazing detail.

    Hey man really nice last few posts - I like the variety to be seen in here personally. You always mix it up enough that looking through is never a chore. Keep it up! I love the fact that you have been an artist for years and yet you can still get excited by the prospect of a serious length of time sketching! Great
