    farvus >> exploration sketchbook II

    \Hello. It's long time since I last posted. Right now I'm doing 2d art in a small game company near my home and I don't paint as much of personal stuff as I used to. However lately I'm slowly going back to painting for fun and exploring. Just to start fresh I decided to create new thread instead of posting in the old one. I want to push a little bit my design and ideas. Illustrating my favourite books would be fun too.

    Here are two latest images I did in free time.

    I can't wait to see you get started again. Your sketchbooks are always so much fun and it still makes me want to throw everything out and just spend a couple of hours doing some of my own experiments. The blog is really nice as well!

    thinksimplybig - Haha. Thnx.
    Nibras - Thanks. I will experiment but not as much as I used to. I eventually go nowhere if I just play with stuff without commiting to something.

    Here's some new design.

    Digital still life. Made me realise I got rusty when it comes to observation painting.

    Still life with my airsoft replica. It was tough to get the values in this one.

    Hey Farvus.

    Your rendering looks very good, good use of color, value, brushwork.

    I've noticed that in a lot of your creative paintings here the objects in the
    scene are present very flatly, with one face directly toward the viewer. I
    think you really need to be digging into the perspective more, right now it
    looks a bit weird/lazy.

    Keep it up! Heh, that self portrait looks just like me on a lot of days at
    work...except we aren't down to using packing crates as desks, yet. Just
    running the A/C during the winter instead.

    “When forced to work within a strict framework,
    the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
    produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
    the work is likely to sprawl.”

    BludHund - Thanks for the notice. It's not like I can't draw dynamic perspective. Some of these images where "lazy" on purpose. It's liberating when I can do some structures as simple 2d elevation view. This way I can play with the shapes and patterns without worrying about other things. However later I had the temptation to turn few into illustration and experiment didn't end up looking well. I should've left some without any type of background.
    On the other hand it was educational to first paint some structure and then come up with context and story that would compliment the design. That's something I might use for brainstorming more elaborate concepts with full attention to perspective and composition.

    Below is more appropriate layout for this type of design .

    I'm going back to foundations and traditional mediums. I use tablet at work and do lots of graphic design and cartoony work so doodling in sketchbook is refreshing.
