Thread: DARKTHUR's Sketchbook
April 30th, 2011 #1
Hello to everyone! Well, I've been drawing for some time now but just now decided to get my job into such a great community like this one to receive criticism and to become a better artist! Or at least try to be an artist first... XD
I'm 19, live in Mexico and studying something between animation and programming... which at times get me quite mad, anyways. I'm just hoping to get to know many other artists, learn from them as well as to learn how to keep an online sketchbook up to date and avaialble for me an others to see how much I improve.
Now, I'll be showing of first what I've done the past couple of weeks. It's not too much of a study work since I have not too much idea on how to start. That's another reason why I'm here! I would love to hear some nice ideas on which kind of stuff is better to work on when trying to become a professional illustrator or designer.
That said, here you go! Thumb first

good start! lots of interesting stuff in here.
If you want to be a pro designer it's good to have a bit of everything.
Someone would prefer to hire one person who could do environments, props, and characters instead of three different people.
Illustration you want composition, mood, subject, Pretty much everything.
Long story short, nothing will go astray .
with any type of art the fundamentals are most important, so when in doubt do some of those.

Thanks to everyone for the nice welcome! I'm eager to keep working on stuff to show here. Right now I have only digital, but in a few days I'll start with what would be a real sketchbook thing Thanks again!
Here are some other things I've done these past days. The last one being an idea I want to push far beyond just a sketch, in that case I'll be showing how it goes. Any critics on it would be awesome!

Oh man, these are so cool. Love the old man faces and the watery aircraft base one. Also the bird and lizard creature combination is fantastic. Really like that one, and the gold tones in your still life are incredibly rich and intense. I don't know much about digital art, but it looks like you really know what you're doing with brushstrokes and colour etc. Amazing work all round. I'll be subscribing to this thread for definite.
You mentioned developing the last image. Is that the one with the glass and fish floating round it? If so, cool idea and I'm looking forward to seeing the progress and how it turns out.

Thanks again to everyone for the encouragement!
Rem92, thanks for making a note on my reflections issue! haha, never thought about it really... since it confuses me quite much I usually ignore some reflections, reducing them just to specular. I'll try to do a more profound study with such topic, thank you!
Here I have what could be a "getting up to date" thing from my sketchbook's drawings the last month. This with the only purpose of registering where I am now and where I'm heading. I'll be posting the new stuff tomorrow !!

Hell of a dump, man, and the sketches and finished pictures look quite equally badass. Love the sheer immensity of the different sketches that you're deciding to use - everything from teapots to boat scenes to furries. Not often that you you see that sort of breadth, and it's a great idea top pursue that kind of versatility.
3 posts in, and this is already a great little sketchbook - great work, Darkthur!
