    Let's get better!

    Hi there!

    I'm not very new here, but I've always been looking around, watching other people's stuff. But now I think it's time to put my own sketches on display and try to get better by doing that!

    PS: The "NSFW"-prefix is just to be sure, I do some life drawing, which includes nudity of course.

    PS2: Sorry if my English isn't always perfect, I'm from Belgium but I think I can manage .

    Anyway, some pictures:

    WIP
    Let's get better!

    Just some random digital sketches
    Let's get better!

    There you go, my first post.

    Will (try to) keep this updated daily!

    Update #1 - 14 oct. 2010

    @ scottrik03: Thx man!

    Now,

    the first one is an environmental sketch. It's for a school assignment where we have to create an environment which we'll put together in UDK (Unreal Development Kit). It was my purpose to catch the atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic, vertical city in which nature and technology live happily together. Need to look more at the larger picture, looks a bit cluttered

    Second is a series of thumbnails of the rock/tree shape for the vertical city. Trying to look for a good basic shape here.

    The last one came into my mind, looking at the far right thumbnail on the second row from the bottom. It is some sort of ape-like soldier.

    That's it for now, will try to upload some good 'ol pencil stuff and life drawing (but that's harder because they're A1 size).

    Cheers!

    Still, here are some sketches.
    Some drawings from life and imagination,
    and a batch of 30 sec. poses @ posemaniacs.com (selected a couple of pages)

    Now I'm off to bed, to get physically better .


    PS: Sorry for the sucky quality, pictures taken with the camera on my MB Pro in bad light conditions...

    Update number 4!

    Decided to get back to basics; pencil & paper!
    I think maybe it's better to get my pencil drawing skills at a higher level before I i work digital.

    First a sketch from life, drawn with pen.
    Next is a portrait from a photo reference, pencil on paper. It is A4 size paper and I've been working on it for about 1h30, still WIP though.

    That last pencil sketch is great, i'd say the proportions are spot on and I really like where you are goign with your shading technique, also liking the post apololytic vertical city one, nice use of the colours you would expect from that particular setting and an interesting composition. Good stuff man, looking forward to seeing how you get on!

    Thx Tom!

    Been refining the first drawing of this sketchbook. But I still don't know where to go with the small character. First thought of a knight, some sitting guy and now some kind of naked nymph living in the forest?

    C&C very much appreciated!

    Hello. Here to return the favor.

    Your concept art is wicked. Love them! Your digital stuff has clean lines and really creative designs. Your traditional stuff, however, could use a little work. They're good, but there's always room for improvement. And be careful with using photo refs. Sometimes, cameras can't pick up certain hints of light that the eye may be able to see.

    Keep up the good work.
