LDQ - Sketchbook
Hello to all here, I'm fairly new to digital painting/concept art, however, been stalking this forum for a good few years. Always hoped I'd get the chance to some day be a part of it. I've started on dA, 5 years ago, and for the last 3 years I've been looking for a better place. I've always loved drawing and painting, but I only recently had the financial means to buy a tablet and really start to work on my drawing/painting.
So, with further ado, this is my sketchbook. Please go easy on me, as I've only recently really started to work on painting/sketching, and am really trying the hardest to get the hang of it.

Uh since I was "in the zone" i thought of finishing off my aliend head concept. Turned out pretty ok, and I can honestly say I'm happy with it !

Another portrait, from reference. I was trying to render as realistic as possible. To be honest I would've tried to go from dark to light, but ended up going midtone/fleshtone to light and dark. I used the cardboard technique, digitally applied. love how it came out.

Thank you ! It is fun as heck and I'm really enjoying painting a lot. I'm trying not to do pencil because it is hard as feck to post them without a scanner ) besides I will end up drawing with a tablet eventually, hence it would make no sense to adapt twice. I'm trying to combine drawing study with painting for maximum efficiency. Fact is i have art background, but I am specialized in graphic design and new media. However painting and drawing were a big wish for me, as I did not get a chance to study those in school. I'm trying to round up my competences with concept art as well

Probably not any time soon It was a superquick study. But who knows... I just might. I do revisit some of my old stuff from time to time. So no hope lost there. :lol:
Here's a quick enviro. Took about 30 minutes. Its kinda bland if you ask me. I'm still trying to create atmo out of thin air. noooooot succeeeding. My weak point is lighting.. need to work on that.

oh yeah. you really pushed yourself with that last realistic portrait from reference. It's nice.
Try to experiment as much as you can. After all, it's all about hard work and dedication. Would love to see more from you. Cheers!
