    A quick sketch for dA's Rift contest. I'm really loving the direction it's heading in. I wanted more action in my paintings, and here I have it.

    Hello Tempest!

    I like the EPIC scale of your rift painting!
    I can't wait to see the giant dude take form.
    You may also try to add more lighting from the fire to the the characters in the foreground to pop them out.

    All the best

    FlaviusChis: Thank you for the suggestion! I don't know if I'll continue the painting as I've lost my inspiration for it, but thank you, nonetheless.


    Inspired by this week's CHOW. No anatomical references, but I did a lot of research for the character creation as I have absolutely no experience in the sci-fi genre. I'm afraid it's too much of an illustration to enter in this CHOW.



    And the story behind it:
    The commander of a spaceship falls in love with the holographic projection of his ship's database, an A.I. system with the uncanny ability to react and respond to the emotions of others. Thus the commander neglects his crew and his family until everyone leaves him to his obsession. What he does not realize, however, is that while the hologram's emotions seem genuine, she is without a human heart.

    I was able to take home some traditional pieces today and take some godawful pictures of them.

    The first is obviously a WIP. My focus is really mood in this one, so I hope that'll come through when it's done.

    The second piece is a still-life of a soda can. We were to crumple up a can and then spray paint it to remove any decals/reflectiveness. Then we applied what we learned from this to another crumpled can which we did not spray paint (unfortunately, I don't have the second piece as my art teacher put it on display in a dentist's office). This is also my very first attempt using acrylic paint!

    The third piece required us to apply a reputable artist's style to a work of another artist. I chose to do Monet's impressionism, but I wanted to apply it to a painting that had definite form and clarity. I thought, what's clearer than a photograph? So I used one of Galen Rowell's photographs. It was therapeutic doing impressionism. I was able to loosen my wrist and forget about being neat (which I find to be very against my nature). This is again an acrylic painting (using only the primary colors, white, and black to mix our own colors).

    And finally, the last piece is a silly side project I did in Prismacolors for my math teacher. Do you get it? No? I'm a nerd, I guess.

    Another character concept!

    This studly elf is a sorcerer who was exiled from his tribe because of the practice of forbidden magic. He lost his right arm due to his inexperience handling such magic but managed to salvage his left.

    Really some impressive stuff in this sketchbook. Also it's surprising how many young people are members of concept art.

    metalhead3: Thank you, and yeah, definitely! It's reassuring to know that there are a lot of people out there in the same place as you, but it also pushes you to step up your game


    Anyhow, my progress for this week's CHOW, a rough sketch for a personal piece of my two main characters from my novel, and a finished personal piece that I didn't like two weeks ago but kinda like now

    Feeling romantic? haha whooo knows.

    You have excellent color and imagination, but maybe you should work on your drawing skills, you need practice with model drawing. Keep it up.

    Moonrage: Thanks! I plan on doing a lot of figure drawing this week, actually


    This week's CHoW. Red Panda Beastmaster and his red panda posse prepping for the beat-down

    I think I may go back later to the character sheet and refine it for my portfolio.

    TNLOCK Fanart. I've hit one of those rough patches where everything I've ever drawn and everything I will draw seems like absolute crap :/

    Very nice sketchbook you have here! You have some pretty strong painting skills. My only suggestion is to keep pushing your self, and to do (more) studies with form/anatomy.

    Keep it up!

    I really like your pencil work and your studies are super solid, too!
    Your poses however are pretty stiff and feel very "2D".
    I also noticed you tend to make your heads too wide and knuckles often appear to be on one straight line instead of a curve.
    Hope that helps

    Nice stuff here. In general, I would say watch out for forearms and hands. Your seem to draw a lot of forearms too short, and very fat. You also seem to draw hands kind of big.

    But you have a good sense of narrative and composition in a lot of these too. So keep up the hard work!

    Featheredface: Thanks!

    Xelar: Thanks, it did help! But do you think you could elaborate on the poses feeling "2D"?

    Sublimus: Thanks! I'm paying more attention to the hands and forearms. I know they're a weakness of mine


    Some interior architecture/perspective practice from imagination. Advice is always appreciated as I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to this area of painting.

    by "2D" poses I mean that you seem to avoid foreshortening at all cost.
    You force limbs to face the camera so it's easier for you to get the proportions right but it ends up looking like every part of the body is at the same depth in space.
