    Ionize's sketchbook - Time to improve!

    Hello, my name is Jon and well, here's my sketchbook! I want to become a concept artist/illustrator in year or ten (probably the later), and figure it would be a good idea to start posting here to help me improve! All crits are totaly super wellcome - help me kill my darlings.

    The first character is a bit too twisted, the ribcage and the pelvis don't really twist much, the shoulders do slide a bit, but not the chest

    Hey thanks for visiting my sketchbook!

    These paintings are looking good so far. I especially like the hands in the second last picture and the torso of the girl in red.

    Can't wait to see more

    I really like the figure in #8. I feel like your figures would pop a lot more if you preserved some of the harder edges. Very nice start though

    Thanks mate, I'll keep that in mind. I'm someting of a coward when it comes to using much contrast in images, whenever it is soft/hard strokes, light/darkness or warm/cold colours. Anyway, thanks for the comment!

    Thanks for checkin out my sketchbook dude.

    Heres some crit. The studies are cool, keep at em and eventually you will start to incorporate the forms of your figures into your own work

    Looking at your own stuff, with regards to anatomy, try to use more contrast to get the muscles and forms to pop (would help loads on the greyscale dude u posted). Also, the last pic u posted, try to make sure that the perspective is right. The shadow looks very out of place as its just grey against the orangey floor. Look at some photo ref to see how light behaves in those conditions.

    nice start, I especially like the pear with teeth & post no.5, keep painting, try out doing higher contrast paintings.

    Thank you for your comment!
    Your sketchbook looks really promising, I especially like your pencil work
    You seem to have a good sense of volume!
    About your 'guarding the well' painting, I think that the shadow she and her gun cast should be more towards the bottom left corner to fit with the shadows on her and her weapon.
    Keep drawing, it looks really good so far!

    My sketchbook - it's a little sketchy.

    Hey people thanks for commenting! You're pointing to lack of contrast, and I totaly agree, I really have a problem with it. Gonna try to make some black and white images, focusing alot on the levels to see it helps. Think you're right about the shadows in that pic too, was aiming for the light to come right behind/above her but it didn't really work out. Will be back with an update once I get back from a few days trip!

    Hey, Ionize, thanks for checking out my sketchbook. You've got a good thing going here. I really like your studies of Lily Cole, but I think your best work is the pear monster.

    Your pencil work is great and has a lot of looseness to it.
    Your digital work however suffers from really drab colors , especially skintones.
    When painting skin you can add some warmth by putting oranges red or pinks into the mid tones

    Back from vacation!

    Thanks for commenting guys! I agree about the drab colors, I really have a hard time loosening up and and use more contrast and color. Tried to be a little more "wild" with this one, but it's still a bit drab.

    do a lot of master copies or after films or photos! And the most important anatomy, perspective, proportions and so on! First year at Atelier Stockholm was to make this precise copy after a bargue drawing! God was a pain! But as simple as it was it took me 1 week..... though i was "done" with it the first day : P

    So take it easy... as Leonardo says "first come patience then comes speed" Or something similar hehe

    Thanks! Stumbled upon Kashivan's sketchbook (link below) and got really inspiered by how he made some of his characters. Not sure if i this is the way he does, but it's basically about adding layers of detail. Not to statisfied about this picture but im gonna go for another try today.

    Kashivan's sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...=224572&page=2 (really amazing work!)
