Hey, I'm Seth Walker, 16 years old, planning on going to art center college of design to major in entertainment design, and maybe go to gnomon. David Levy and Android Jones are my inspiration.
Give me some comps and crits!! Anything to refine my skills!!
Some more speedpaints
from personal sketchbook. from like a year ago. crits welcome.
speedpaintings look quite good, but you should use less "finished brushes?" ;D
the portraits are also good - the proportion are actually accurate, exept for the old man and the lady ( kind of resemblance with a chimp ^^ )
Thanks for the crits. I will try to refine my proportions, still learning... I totally agree, my speedpaints should be done with different brushsets..
Der Rote Baron (the red baron)
Feedback! Now!!! I demand it!!!
hi, again xD
in relationship to your other works is this realy good.
But there are a few problems, but i think you already figured them out by yourself
- the nose and the mouth are to much below the eyes ( i think )
- the ear is kind of 'edged'
but overall good work!
Thanks so much for the crits.... I wasn't really focusing on proportions on this particular piece, I was trying to get the rendering up to par. Also this is one of the only pieces I have done with only the round brush, a few other brushes, and the smudge tool.
I really like your works on the top posts. Those are pretty nifty sketches, especially like the robot one. For the speedpaints, what I would suggest to minimise the use of the finished brushes because I can tell it's a bit pixelated. And it would be better for your personal development that you try to draw it instead.
The Red Baron piece strikes out more than the rest of the drawings, and I really like the overall mood of it. It feels like an old picture because of the hazy colour. This is what I think anyway. For improvement - emm, I would recommend refining it if you have any time. Just expand the range of tones, to make it more realistic (:
Was absent for the last few days because of two major exams on one day. I can only browse it in school but I can't log in - so apologies. I sure do hope you post more up! Would love to see more~
Thanks for the advice. I know, school can be a bitch sometimes. Always gets in the way... O well... I have been doing some more pencil sketches, but I have yet to upload them... just havent found the time yet... I will soon though... Off camping now.
1 1/2 hours. I used a reference image for the mountain and part of the forest. I did everything else on my own. Crits?
why do you demand crits, do you don´t like yourself?
Yes, emze, I torture myself at night because my art is not good enough for the world to see.... You should see the scars on my back....
You are doing very well, I really like your drawing of the robotic woman and your painting of the Red Baron. It is very well done. One thing with faces though, is you have to be careful of the angles and proportions. The more you draw and observe, the easier it will get. =)
Issandira -- Thanks so much, yeah sometimes i get too involved in rendering and i forget about the most basic thing -- proportions.
zelda_geek -- yes this is something i really need to incorporate into my s.p.'s
2 hours. used a ref for the horse. I tried to focus on a more invitational feel to this one using big shapes... idk.. crits?
Hello, after you posted on my Sb i thought i would check out yours, really great stuff here, your SPs are fantastic. Couple thoughts on the latest one, desert and horse. Well, from just looking at it, it feels like they are on a floating island, not really grounded. I think i know why that is, i see that the horizon line on that painting actually starts in the middle, then sort of curves down halfway across the painting, and ends up sort of rounded, giving the impression that there is nothing beyond the midground. Maybe flatten out the horizon line and it will look a bit more realistic? Man and horse are done well, the lines seem really vague and shaky/edgy, but i think thats what you were going for, ive seen other artists use that technique very well. I think you should push the lighting as well, maybe have the sun coming from behind that rock pillar, and have the shadow coming towards us. Overall great job, im still very new, but i can tell your a very talented artist, and have a great future ahead of you.
Good luck, Seamus
Edit: Just checked the lighting with the shadows of the people, yes, most everything we can see of the rock formation on the left should be in shadow, and it should be casting a shadow down towards us.
Hi, im a new artist, just trying to get better!
Check out my SB and help me along!
My Sketchbook! ---> http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...=1#post2760813
thanks so much for the crit!! yeah this one is definitly lacking a background... kind of figured that out after the fact... maybe i'll put some really light faded blue mountains in the background to give it a horizon.... but yeah... here is some more stuff from my SB.
more sketches. WWII one from reference, scary dude thing is completely from my imagination... landscape is when i went camping at horsethief lake in lyle, WA... beautiful there, thought it was worth drawing, ....and some studies.
more... hand study and soldier concept whose head is too little...
Hi Seth, it would serve your art to become more comfortable with the pencil before handling the stylus, your graphite lines feel very uneasy, relax, take your time and let the lines flow, art is not a race, its a life long journey through time and space.
Thank you so much! This coming from someone like you really means a lot. I will always remember this post.
Nice WWII thing, that's my favorite. My advice; do whatever android says, he's an art god.
I worship him.
Thank for the comment on my SB.
I like what you've got so far; watch your proportion, and watch out for uneven/lopsided drawings. (Tip: Turn them upside down, or look at them in a mirror, it's like looking at a completely different image, and your brain will process mistakes more easily. Only trouble is, it -could- create more mistakes when you flip it back to it's regular angle..)
Hi! I'm 16 as well!
I really like your stuff, although if your this good, you should spend a little more time on your work. It looks like your just trying to push it all out IMHO.
Nice stuff though, I wish I was that good with color and a tablet.
Check out my stuff sometime
