Hi everyone! My name is Eytan, formerly quick_sketch on these forums. Havn't really posted in this section very much, but thought I might share this with you.
I just turned 22 and I have just finished my four years at Otis College of Art and Design. Here's my portfolio from this semester. My main focus has been environment concept design with a minor in characters so to speak. Please enjoy.

Wow! Color me impressed.
Sweet work! Your environmental work is very solid!
I do think the street courier character esp. is a little bit stiff. In terms of pose, clothes/folding, and rendering. That would be my two cents, hope you don't mind.
Again, good work!
WOW indeed! Very beautiful work and I can see that you put in some very serious work time.
I like them all. The drug manufacturer is superb but it is the workshop one that I would love to have on my wall. A most impressive body of work.
I wish you all the best in your endeavours.
We are remembered only by what we leave behind.
Great work, really impressive folio.
It was a real treat to scroll down this thread. Your B&W enviros are really special and for a person who is primarily an enviro artist your characters are of excellent quality. Glad you posted in this section and congrats on the portfolio.
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Thank you everyone!
Artfix - thank you! i love those too. seems like artists like my sketches more and non-artists like the finished color stuff more.
Dahami- thanks dude.
Ramon - thank's for the crit, now looking at it, i totally agree.
Waipunga- thank you very much! glad you like it so much.
thegrayslayer- awesome dude, thanks
gloominati - thanks dude!
vigostar - thanks dude, come again!
Excellent portfolio, your enviroments are def your strong point. The thumbnails read very well, and seem easily trasnferable to a fullscale illustration. Keep up the good work.

Really solid portfolio, the environment stuff is excellent, the snowy mountain one stands out for me. Looking forward to more.
Nice work dude!!! And congratulations concept Class of 2010!!!!!!
My jaw dropped immensely when I saw this. You have such a way of composition and colours it's really solid stuff man.
Though I wouln't use white borders, your eye tends to first go for highlights then darks first, so surrounding all your darks with a bright border is really distracting and prevents you from getting immersed in your beautiful environments. I'm sure you did it too not blend in the crowd of everyone else, but hey if it's not broken don't fix it.
Your backgrounds are beautiful enough to stand out from the crowds of others. Some really smooth stuff you have going on here, I can't wait to see more!
I have to agree with everyone else, this is superb!

what everyone else said. and glad to see a fellow Otis kid tearing it up! Beautiful enviros! If i can offer any practical advice w/ your folio, is given that you have 99% enviros and then a couple characters thrown in, just ditch the characters. Art directors want to see your passion and thats what theyll hire you for. Dont sweat the variety package, the tiny characters/figures you have in your enviros to help instill some scale/story are more than adequate. good luck!
Awesome work Eytan! Sorry i missed on your graduation.
we'll meet up soon to have lunch when you start working.
i thought you are 17. hehe
wow...thats one hell of a portfolio to have graduated with! well done.
you've really got the environment stuff down...best of luck
That's how it's done, brother!
Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attraction of others.
Look at the monkey wh0re himself out:
Very stylized and impressive. I am stunned by those environments. You have a very professional skills in creating outlook. Good luck with finding a job. - G
P.S. - May I ask you about more information... are you going to make tutorials?

i wonder how long it will take you to sift through the billions of job offers! great work, i must say environments are one of my pet peeves, and you go above and beyond! i wish i had the kind of education available to me as you've had, being the same age I cant help but think where i might be now all the best!
wow thank you everyone for your feedback, that is some awesome encouragement right there. I will for sure post more soon!

Thank you guys so much, you are too kind! I'm really glad you guys like my work so much, I'll be sure to post more often!
Luke - yeayuh boy!
Ikage - You know that's a good point. I tried doing a dark grey back ground and everything kind of bled together. It works on the printed portfolio a lot better i guess.
Smokenmirrors - thanks for the crit. Although when i show my portfolio to art directors, the characters always seem to make them like it more. They go through the portfolio and then theyre like oh! you can do characters too! I guess people don't generally assume I can do characters if all I show are environments.
jung - thanks man! it was an honor learning from you, I learned everything i know about environments from your classes. for sure, we should grab lunch. this time ill pay........maybe.
izzy - you the fuckin man! thanks for being a killer teacher dude
clanlord- thanks man, i don't really have any tutorials, but if i end up saving my process im sure ill post it back here.
stoph- hey man glad you like the work. definitely not a billion job offers, not even close haha. though i dunno what youre talking about your work is awesome!
ill be back, im gonna post soon i swear!
