    Kufspawn's Sketchbook - a newcomer's road to improve

    Hello everyone. My name's Jordan, just graduated from high school and - hopefully - going to start college this coming Fall. I'm deeply interested in becoming a concept artist. And have been interested in being an artist for a while. Though I kind of took it somewhat seriously in the past, with college looming I sort of feel like I haven't applied myself enough.

    I've kind of been around this site for a few years and I've had this account for a few months, but haven't really summoned up much courage to sign up and actually start posting. I'm actually kind of a little intimidated to do so, either way I want to push those fears aside and take a chance to practice and try to improve. And advice (lol).

    So far, my focus has been around a lot of Science Fiction, mainly Warhammer 40,000, and Fantasy themes. I hope to use this sketchbook to expand myself and work outside of my comfort zones.

    Not really sure what else to say here, so here are some snippets from my sketch book that I used through most of my senior year.











    Thanks for taking the time to look.
    -Jordan

    PS: Sorry for posting two threads on accident. I kind of made a slip up, the other thread can be deleted. Again, sorry about that.

    @vinknight - haha thanks. Used to play the game a few years back, it was a major source of inspiration for me to be come an artist.

    Some sketching I did yesterday.

    Went to Barnes and Nobles with a few friends the other day, attempted to sketch.





    Also did a quick self portrait with some left over pastels and charcoal that I had lying around. Came out a bit more, cartoony than I like, but it was pretty good.

    Cool start so far! My big crit for you would be that some of the features in your faces don't line up. Try to pick up some books to supplement your drawings... some good reading/studying material I know of is... all the books by Andrew Loomis and "Constructive Anatomy" by George Bridgman! Those books will really change the way you look and draw things from both observation and imagination! Knowing what things line up and how to structure your figure better will make your art look more boss

    @Not_Deadman - Thanks for that. Really appreciate it, I'll look into those books as soon as I can.
