    Digital Paintings!

    So, I haven't really gotten much response on my previous post, and I realize now that I didn't add a thumbnail. Or maybe my art just isn't very good. Either way, here's one last shot:

    Hi everyone! I'm new here. I've recently taken up digital painting/concept art so I thought it'd be a good idea to get into these Internet art forum/blog things, and what better place to start than at conceptart.org? Actually I created a blog first, but...whatever.

    So, I'm trying to get a handle on that quick concept sketch type of painting technique as seen in works by Mathias Verhasselt, and various other artists. So here's a few of the resulting paintings (I did use the pen tool for certain elements). Feedback on composition, lighting, and technique would be greatly appreciated

    I'm not much of a painter myself but the lightbulb study is really solid. I would recommend doing a ton more still life studies, they can be boring but you'll improve hella fast.

    That's definitely a good idea. I'm planning to be totally elite within the next 3 months or so and this fantastical wonderland crap really takes too much time to come up with and composite.

    And I've got a pretty high tolerance for boredom so, no problem.

    The Nerf Gattling Cannon!!!

    Dunno if that's actually what it's called. Anyways, here's a quick one that I left midway through. I felt maybe the previous ones were a bit too finished to really comment on technique.

    I really like the light bulb. I think the imagery in your other efforts are a bit flat. The composition elements are interesting and actually made me curious as to what the story would be.

    Regarding: Commenting...there is another section of CA that I think will give you the type of comments you are looking for, for example Motion Graphics and Animation, also there are forums set up for Crit and analysis.

    Another suggestion, re-edit your first post to include in the title line your desire for crit and analysis. Seems to work for some folks.

    What paint program are you using?

    Thanks for the critique and advice SomberTwin! They are kinda flat now that you mentioned it. I'll definitely check out the other forums, and try the title thing. And I used Photoshop for these.

    Hi Jackson. Never stop trying. Many of us will succeed from 5th or even more attempts. And this is only your second.
    Good start on your sketchbook. I would love to see your pencil work, as it seems you can draw a nice characters - that old lady in the first post rocks!

    Show us more work, keep posting!

    the images in the first post look wicked, especially the granny. I think a bit more contrast in this piece would really make it pop. Just my two cents worth. Keep posting.
