    Finn's Concept work

    Hey guys! My name is Finnian MacManus.
    Here is some of my concept art. I'm going to be making a bunch of concept sheets like the one I did for my podracer, hoping to get accepted to Pasadena Art Center for Entertainment design in February. I know my drawings suck, lol

    Edit; Was accepted for Art Center Entertainment Design Fall 2012, so I'll be focusing more on practice for now rather than finished works.

    It's funny how the better the artist the more vague and general the critique gets. So I apologise the the vagueness of my critique.

    First thing I noticed is the Luminousa series of paintings. The background there is completely unneeded. It draws the attention away from the actual painting. Unless you're designing the interface of course. Most people who look at the piece will be extremely interested in your paintings and extremely uninterested in the bulky background. Actually the paintings in your DA gallery are perfect.

    Secondly the first image seems to be very similar to something out of Star Wars, was that intentional?

    Anyways, hope this helps, great work!

    Wow, I really love the second image. I tend to like things that juxtapose ancient temple-type settings and futuristic technology. I LOVE the colors you used for the space station/tower image, although it's a bit hard to figure out what it is exactly. The orange lights would make sense if it's a tower or building shining down on the city below, but not so much if it's a space station in the middle of space.

    Such awesome works, congratulations on getting into artcenter, can't imagine the kickass stuff you'll be creating once you graduate.

    One nip picking, and it's more of personal taste, I feel a lot of the pieces are over detailed, which makes it hard to find a focal point. I think that can't be helped if you are creating them in 3D, unless you touch it up in photoshop after ward.

    Thank you both so much,

    @look, I completely understand what you mean. I've actually seen this problem develop in previous pieces of mine, and it can be quite annoying if you are trying to present a simplistic focal surrounded by a 3D environment :/
    One day I hope to surpass my 3D skill entirely so that I can use 3D just as a supplement to painting... will need alot more practice before that day though.
