    Eelisk's sketches, wips & things

    EDIT: Eelisk's sketches, wips & things

    Hop!

    Decided to open one of these now that I'm waiting for the results from the uni I just applied into. All of the pictures below have been created after the submission of portfolio, so I surely hope I dont keep getting the good ol' feeling of "dang, just a few more days and I could have included this one too!", but let's get onto it.

    First off, two reference practises.

    Not to forget a real quickie speedpainting I just did for a warmup.

    Enjoy!

    Another photo ref. I'll be holding out from full-fledged personal works for a while and working with landscape references & quick thumbnails instead. Let's see how far that kind of practice gets me.

    And also, the tower shot was kinda finished. I'll probably shoot it through some criticism machine and improve it up.

    I don't really do creatures nor characters much, so this was a nice take-off from landscapes. Will probably continue later on.

    Hey bud, I hear you're going to be joining Wheels and I in our little quest for self improvement. Welcome! So far I'm liking the quick snowy landscape in post #1 and the seascape in post #4. Your still life is looking good as well. I'd love to see you do a few more of those to keep building your understanding of light, shadow and form. I'm hoping to get a few done over the next few days as well, so we could tackle them together . As Wheels said above is there anything you'd like to work on for your first group piece with us? We made a list each of topics that interested us which has been really helpful for plotting out our future projects and identifying some weak spots in our work. Looking forward to seeing some more work from you soon!

    Hey man, When I take a look at your body of work, it's all Environments so that leaves a lot of ground for us to cover when giving out assignments. Do you want to tackle the same challenge I gave Ebersol for this week?( 'Design a Jetpack") or do you want a different one?
    Let me know and we'll take it from there.

    @Eb: Thanks for the warm welcome! Indeed, some additional still lives wouldn't hurt. They don't take that long to make either so why not. Should we do them from the same picture or set up own stills? Both work for me. I'll probably be doing it digitally, since I don't have any paint left right now. Want to study 'em with colour.

    @Wheel: I'll gladly join into the jetpack design challenge this week. Even though I'm currently focusing on environments it doesn't hurt to make something different from time to time. Will come up with a few sketches tomorrow.

    If Environments is the only thing you want to focus on, that is cool but I think you could benefit from branching out as it will all help your environments in the long run.
    Let's see those sketches!

    Here we go boys, I called it The Daedelus Workshop Study Group and put it in the Mentoring forum. Sound good? I didn't go with the Emerald Daggers Idea as it's been done and we are unique! This is going to be fun!
