    Jacob Anderson's Sketchbook

    I figure I should start by introducing myself. I'm a soon to be graduate from the University of Connecticut looking to get into freelance concept design, and maybe, one day, work for Wizards of the Coast.

    You have a good start here. I see some good use of line and some nice attention to darks. I would say when you do those digitals, try and stay away from black when doing the grey scale image. Might push the values and get them just so before coloring over it. One thing that really helped me was watching some of David Chan's videos or just search "digital painting" on youtube. There are some really helpful things on there.

    That last B&W is really great though. Looks like it might be taken from something, but that has some real presence and it is just a head! Hang in there and keep at it. ^_^

    I've been playing with the idea of an urban, modern, Link.
    I've decided to hash it out a bit.

    I suppose it goes without saying that those boobs are impossible and unnaturally unaffected by the tight straps and you might want to look up a couple of references for legs. I like the boldness of your lighting though, especially on the boots.

    \Thanks. Yeah...I had a feeling the legs were off a little bit, but I went with it anyway.

    Latex was fun to detail.

    BTW:

    BTW:
    Any critique on anything would be much appreciated. I usually look at the sketchbooks of those who critique me and try to help them out as well, if I can.

    Last image is cool I wonder tho if the green of the mountain would kind of seep through the fog a bit, maybe like a gradient or something? Idk not too much reference on these kinds of things. I like the painting and the concept in particular
