    Gia Nguyen's environments. Updated 7/6/2012

    Hi guys, hello from Vietnam. My name is Gia Nguyen Hoang, I'm 22 and I'm still a student at the university of Architecture in Ho Chi Minh city. For the past 2 years, I'm a totally self-taught artist, watching and practicing art everyday and I'm also looking to attend to TAD after graduation. Today I decided to make a finished thread here, showing my most recent works, and I hope everyone please give me feedback, to help me get better.

    Thanks a lot !


    Finished environment concept art











    Speed painting








    My entry for a challenge at cghub



    A still-life painting



    Digital plein-air studies

    At a coffee shop

    Your architecture training is definitely showing, brilliant use of perspective. The castle with the birds flying by is probably the strongest image, though your interior with the red lighting also looks really amazing. I'm a little unsure about what's on the lower right, is that an escalator?

    Hey Gunsbins, you have some promising stuff here, cool concepts for sure... but it seems to me that you rely heavily on brushes and photo textures for your lighting effects and materials. Your inexperience is apparent in the paint handling of your plein air and life studies. Your understanding of light (values are really not working...too many highlights, too many blacks) and material is lacking right now but of course that comes with practice. I suggest you stay away from cookie-cutter brushes for awhile and just focus on rendering light and materials manually, strictly with a round brush at various densities, or hey try using actual paint! Be more mindful of your tones and how they affect where the audience's eye is drawn to.... I do like the caricature on that cghub challenge tho, that one stands out most to me. Keep at it man.
