    hey guys, haven't posted for a couple days. been busy with family and christmas and all. I am starting working as an environment concept artist for a stone age based game. The end product will be somewhat like red dead redemption or grand theft auto but in a stone age setting. Here's my first concept for it. I would love some input.

    hello Jeff
    Interesting stuff mate, you are more improved in generating enviros.
    Anyway i think u are on the right track and u should keep up improving your drawing and perspective skills and later the values.Drawing a lot and doing anatomy can help improve very quickly.
    Try to simplify everything in order to understand it.Even when doing enviroments try to understand the basic forms that make the enviroment(for example in a city we have a lot of rectangulars) so that it will be easier to render light and shadow on them.

    Keep up the good work

    Nice start, your enviros are interesting and I like that your pushing them more. I agree with the above poster that you may need to focus a bit more on lighting and shadow shapes. Maybe try some still life drawings with a variety of light sources using a lamp so you can practice how light affects a varity of FORMS(EX: cylinders,boxes, which have similar shapes to buildings and smoke stacks.

    Keep pushing your figures, again drawing studies from life can be very helpful

    Keep going, cool stuff.

    here's a couple more landscapes for that video game.

    Love your environments and the colors. Good stuff! I'd say concentrate on anatomy studies and you'll be pretty well rounded.

    Awesome environment in the last post! I also enjoy the grayscale cave. I agree with the others, though; practice those figure studies and you'll improve quicker than you expect. I'm following another young person who has improved so much since he started his sketchbook last year. Check him out and you'll see what I mean.

    thanks Blender914, he did a great job! though there isn't much visible improvement there, that sb started was edited in october.

    here's some character sketching, no ref. Trying to figure out what i need to work on most. Clearly hands, knees and feet...but also about everything else.

    Things are looking great jBrown. That sketch of the man holding the axe looks really really good. I wonder how that might look if you threw some paint over the top of it for some practice?

    Your gestures look SO much better than mine, which reminds me of what I need to work on

    syle: good idea! just uploaded here. this isn't done yet but it's a start.

    also here's a still life of my ocarina I got for christmas. I quite enjoy random simple woodwind instruments. I play bagpipes, smallpipes, chanter, tin whistles, and ocarina. I just set it by my hdmi cable on top of my glass cleaning cloth.

    Ah was that horseman for this weeks Chow? Keep working on it man. I think the rider need sto be a little closer to the head of the horse maybe? almost likeits leaning towards it. Keep up the studies!

    hey guys, here's another image for the stone age game, going to take some more time on this before i submitted it, but I figure I should post it here for some critiques as well.

    Perspective

    Excellent job on the perspective. I took a copy of it and drew the lines and they matched up very well, despite my terrible line skills. I don't know if you drew them first, then painted on top, or if you did this all freehand, but it adds a lot to a painting.

    One thing I see kind of out of place are the trees, circled red in the attached image. I can see the size of the trees in the background being realistic, but the foreground trees seem a little small for the perspective. I'm not sure if this was your intention or if you simply painted them in different sessions and forgot about it, but it stands out to me. I'm not trying to nag about it, but from the looks of them, both groupings of trees are the same age about, so it would make sense to me if they were the same real-size. Please excuse the long post (and excessively large image), but I have a tough time simplifying explanations of any kind.

    you've got a nice variety of studies and finished pieces, but the one thing I notice in all of them are your scratchy lines. they come through especially on the anatomy line drawings of course - try to be a bit more confident with your lines is my advice.

    you can use stronger, sweeping lines to convey a lot in drawing: weight, tension, force, motion, intent etc, but most of all it makes the drawing easier to read. I think if you have a look at this your paintings will improve as well

    Blender914: thanks, I appreciate that. I did draw the perspective and compostion first, then painted over it. The suggestion about the trees is completely true, I hadn't even thought about that.

    NeonDuck: That's true, I should be working on that, something I haven't put much thought in. Thanks!

    this started out as a samurai....eventually turned into a viking. Let me know what you think, anything from anatomy to composition is appreciated

    Wow, you have some awesome enviros going on! Great figure and anatomy studies, too. Keep it up!

    On #84 - You have a lot of good energy in the brushwork there, but the pose feels a bit static. I'd crouch him down more, spread out his arms and get his head into a cocky battle position. Make him look like he's going to pounce.

    I love #79 - If that's your comfort zone, kudos!

    Looking through your sketchbook I would say that you really need to slow down when drawing. Your line work is very messy and all over the place, almost as though you were drawing them with haste. Don't give to heavily into colour yet, you've got A LOT more work to do on a foundational level. Doing some colour studies here and there are fine, but stick to drawing and getting your values down first.

    In a lot of your greyscale drawings (the ones done from ref) you seem to be adding values that aren't really there. I'd suggest sitting down and committing yourself to drawing/painting, say, 5 of your favourite greyscale photos. And when I say draw them, I mean copy them. Don't interpret. Copy with the intention of getting it as close to the photo in terms of it's composition, value, form, and anatomy (assuming there is a figure involved). No matter what you decide to draw, the key is to make it as accurate as possible. Draw exactly what you see. Don't make stuff up.

    Also, dive into anatomy studies. Those will help you tremendously.

    Keep rockin!
    All the best!



    ART. MORE. NOW.

    hey guys, I've been spending a ton of time on figure drawing, about 8 full pages just from today. I'll upload a bunch of those soon. I just decided to try a quick digital sketch from all that I learned today. I started getting really deep into loomis' figure drawing book, I drew mostly everything he recommended practicing up to page 55 or so. Anyone know of any other good anatomy books or online stuff I should look at?
