    Exphrasis' sketchbook

    Hey guys !

    I've been posting in the 'it's finally finished ' gallery for a couple of years now, but I wasn't really updating it due to the lack of feedback.

    Some artworks in here will be really sketchy ( thumbnails, traditional sketches...) while some others will be a bit more finished.


    With time I learnt that it is far more interesting to post more stuff, and less ' finished ' art, so I can post on an every day basis and get more feedback, and progress.

    I have no idea why I didn't do that before but hey, better late than never !

    I'll also post some 3D stuff here, if that's ok, since I like to experiment and try mixing medias from time to time.



    Heres some stuff I worked on this morning :

    Let's hope I'll keep this sketchbook up to date !

    cool! The creepy dude's teeth look a bit out of place in terms of value and rendering style. This last one with the restaurant is great! I love how the colors are playing together.

    Thanks EricElwell !

    speed painting done at school, for a speed painting workshop I created recently

    It was a great idea...A lot of people are motivated and we meet twice a week to share ideas, theory and general knowledge linked to speedpainting and creative images in general.

    Hope you like it !
    Done in about 2 hours in total if you count the +1 hour to add some small fixes

    Maybe I should have added him another weapon, or blood stains on that big claw-weapon thing he's got to make him even more brutal :p

    I really liked that last study when I saw it on sijun, subtle but very well done.
    Would like to see more studies from you on here!

    Hey man, most of your works are looking good and especially those environments show big promise. My only critique would be that some of them lack depth and space a bit.

    keep it up

    Nice studies mate. Maybe sometimes you mess values a little bit with too much blacks (in my opinion), but in overall - keep'em coming, especially imaginary stuff.

    Glad to see all this work is paying a bit.

    DabeGarcia, thanks !
    I study perspective with simple cubes in perspective in my sketchbook , like the one at the top here > http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/1745/planche4copy.jpg

    For scenery it's a mixture of studying from pictures
    ( like this one : http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/20...is-d4fzudc.jpg )
    , watching a lot of artworks that I like and try to understand why they work so well, and also a lot of thumbnail work, with simple compositions and themes.
    I don't really detail them as you can see, it's more to get a general idea.
    This way you don't get lost in details and learn how to really lay down the bases and the essential of a landscapes pretty quickly.

    Cheers
