Hey folks, new SB!
Please crit, it's why I'm here! To learn and improve. I adore Paintovers (but I know they are unlikely!) and I always also appreciate tips on new resources/links, anything you can throw at me that might improve my abilities.
I try to vary my topics and methods as much as possible. Still very much looking for a "style" so it might seem a bit chaotic.
Here's some of my recent stuff, most of it unfinished.
Hi, You've got a great start to your CA sketchbook.
I like the way you mix more realistic images and sometimes cartoony work. I do that too.
Really like the feel of the restaurant interior. It evokes a strong reaction in me. Pixel the doggy is light but well rendered...even cute I might add. The lighting on the lion and cloaked guy is really good.
That is very nice, great atmospheric perspective!Also like the rendering in the dwarf one. There´s something bugging me in that image, maybe is that i am not used to see dwarfs riding horses.. anyway maybe you could revise the leg´s pose mmm maybe more open?
also great work on creatures!
Nice artwork! That "fuck the system" picture made my whole attitude change for a second. It's very strong, wonderfully-toned. I love it! I like added texture on your floating land remake too!
I will add that the statue that got removed in your recent picture was my favorite piece in the picture. ><
I do understand why it was taken out- my focus was immediately drawn towards it, and takes attention away from the ships.
random concept art tag (the character was mostly already there by some other person)
and repainting the ship one yet again, very very early setup. Feels better now but I'll probably end up repainting it AGAIN at this rate (And I'm not hating it yet, I love seeing my improvement every time I repaint it.)
Not sure how relative it is to conceptart.org, but I'm actually using my 2 paintings here as real concept art for a 3D scene. Here are some shots of current progress (everythng is very work in progress)
I know next to nothing technically about vehicles or guns, have little experience prop-designing and in general drawing mechanical things (especially vehicles and guns) and also scifi stuff. Sooooo, here's some practise on all those things. Crits would be really appreciated!

Another update! Still not quite there yet, but relatively close now.
Gonna raise the city on a cliff and add waterfalls, need to detail ships alot (ropes and stuff) and fix the sails. Gotta up the scale on the buildings of the arch and add the fourth statue silhouette in the background.
Crits very very welcome, please be harsh! This is stuff for my entry-level portfolio
In this last one I did a fairly detailed sketch on the statue figure, and the 2 ships since they had to be fairly correct perspective and such, but the environmental stuff I usually started in colour without sketch. (because I don't really know where I'm going with it most of the time anyway) If I get stuck on a certain area I might lay in a quick sketch though.
And yeah definitely start large, go in smaller. Sometimes I find myself painting some details on the major focal point to see if the piece will work out (like for example here I detailed the statue fairly early )
