    Velocity Kendall, Thanks!

    Jauny, aw thanks! you're very kind C: I will post more

    Samurai Nik, Thanks! I'm actually learning digital painting too. I'm still not very good, but I do find it easier to start a painting if there's color and texture in the background.
    Some people start from grayscale and then apply color using another layer, this method is actually recomended if you're a beginner, and there are even professional artists that work in this way (it's easier to get the lightning and composition properly). Perhaps you could try that method and see how it works out for you!

    Great stuff here. Those life drawings and ballpoint characters are very natural and dynamic. Now let's see them environments!

    good stuff so far. But your anatomy is lacking in places. Try studying some serious Loomis, and do more work from life !

    Hi. Welcome to Conceptart!
    I see your characters vary quite much. The hell of anatomy study awaits.
    May the Great Vilppu and Holy Loomis guide you through that wasteland where many artists met their end.

    I'm waiting *tap tap* >.>

    Maybe you can try doing some 3D anatomy studies alongside drawing. If you do basic box modeling with focus on the shape and disregard to topology issues it's going to be a loot more fun.

    D: them environments! I will post them monsieur! but so far I've nothing worthy of showing
    yes, I do like to use Mudbox to model, and it's easier and more fun than getting the topology done in 3ds max. But I still should know the topology, since I'm going into Game Design after all!

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment in my sketchbook, it's been a while.

    You seem a little inconsistent, with pieces like faviola and dragonbird working better than 21sb.jpg or 14.jpg.
    I'm not sure how to go about making things consistent, other than practice, but I know that's something an art director would look for, although that may not apply in an environment artist's portfolio.

    I suspect you use black to paint in shadows. You should look deeper into how light works to figure out what colors to use. Warm lights will cast cool shadows, ambient light will brighten shadows, etc.

    Hamsta, hey nice to see you dropping by!
    Yes I see what you're saying about inconscistency. I guess I should start having higher standards and paying more attention to what I'm doing.
    eh I try not to use black, the whole shadow being the color of the ambient light is something I'm beginning to understand and practice, it's kind of hard since I've been used to thinking of shadows as black almost my entire life.
    Thanks for pointing these problems out. I'll definetly work to improve on these.

    jamtob2, Hey! Thanks! Yes that's why started using them haha, nothing beats pencil though C: in my humble opinion.

    eh I wasn't gonna post this cause it's anime-ish, but I kind of like how the skintones turned out.

    A study with pastels of a painting in oils by David Leffel. I should say a failed study.
    I was trying to learn this whole painting with pastels business, studying skintones, and how to paint by massing the form instead of outline.
