    Mothanders Sketchbook

    Hello everyone

    I've been around this site for a couple of years or so for inspiration, finally got around to make a user and start a sketchbook.
    Last couple of years I've been studying game design in Stockholm, then worked at Overkill Software in Stockholm for 8 months, as a Leveldesigner/QA.

    Recently decided to take up on my art and practice a lot, hopefully get better
    Will probably start to take on some anatomy studies.

    Really motivated and pumped to get working!
    Would really appreciate some comments and criticism!

    I'll start by adding a painting i did yesterday, more or less my first larger painting.

    Mechanical doll

    @takashmen, thanks ;D I'll give it my best!


    Tried some new ways of rendering and came up with this.
    Started of as a doodle and later became some sort of mechanical doll thingy, had a lot of fun with this one.

    hi thanks for dropping

    if you have problems with details good option is to do some photo studies
    (i don't know what thinks you like to paint but here are some links)

    http://www.opacity.us/locations/
    http://www.pbase.com/
    http://www.lostamerica.com/index.html

    http://screenmusings.org/
    http://www.leavemethewhite.com/index2.html
    http://great-castles.com/gallery.php

    also i like to paint screen caps directly from movies ( the quality is better and you can capture every single moment)

    cheers

    Hi there, man and thanks a lot for stopping by my sketchbook!
    I like your landscape drawings and you definitely have development in drawing characters!

    Lemme give you some crits on the last character. It's if you're going to work further on this piece. As for me, you should give him bigger head, hands and feet because they're not big enough for his figure and make him look funny. Also you should give his right feet (the one which is not near the sack) the same direction as the knee of that leg has. Also try downloading some custom brushes from deviantart or whatever other webpage because using Photoshop's default brushes so directly doesn't seem a good idea to me.

    Go on working and in a couple of years you'll definitely become a great artist! Good luck!

    Orcish pyromancer dude.

    Recently catched a cold, so spent a few hours painting this and sneezing all over the place.

    Post #15 is such a strong image. It's leaps and bounds above your other stuff. You may want to take a step back and ask yourself what was different about that approach (besides the cold and snot-sneezing ). Figure out what your approach was, what your inspiration was, how much time you spent on it, etc etc.

    That's truly an awesome composition and rendering. Now do that on everything else! Good work, keep it up.

    A study of the dude.

    FInnished a quick(ish) study of the dude. I feel like im getting a bit more hang of it.
    This is the picture i was using. https://images.nonexiste.net/popular...hday-Dude.jpeg

    Can't say i really nailed that expression he's got, it was kinda tricky. Mine got a little more of a bad attitude, and a little less "dude"

    I like Bacchus, Fishdragon and dude from your avatar a lot, I definitely see progress in your paintings. My subjective opinion about references - It's better to use some favorite famous artist's works to copy from rather then photos, for me it's a less disappointing way.

    This is a gas driven gun with a tommygunish ammoclip. The silencer doesn't make very much sense considering its gasdriven. Perhapse the gas is just used for the firing mechanic. ANYWAY, night all!Name:  Silenced_pressuredgas_pellet_tommygun.jpg
