Nice start to a new sketchbook! Really great perspective and environmental pieces in here as well as strong silhouettes and characters designs. I noticed a lot of your lighting is implied and not flesh out but maybe that was your intent. The dark Grey piece in the first post with the figures in the pub scene would look great fleshed out with a lighting setup. As for a crit on the last color piece I would watch your material feel in parts or it could be the light direction, feels like the light would hit the sword as well as have more specular highlight on parts of the waist band/buckle as well. Great stuff overall, looking forward to seeing more.
@Yautja892:Thank you!You are right about the lighting.It's one of my weaknesses in my work and i really should try and get its fundamentals right.In the picture you mentioned though,i tried to keep the sword in shadow because the wing it's between it and the light source...but probably it's not convincing enough.Again thanks for your crit!
@Falchion:Thanks a lot!
@In2eternity:Too big of a compliment i still have lots too learn.But thank you for the encouragement!
