    Sketchbook Numero Uno

    Hi guys,

    I have been a long time lurker but have never actually got round to sorting out some serious input. Well its not quite a new year but it is time to put on a fresh pair of boxers and mingle. So I thought I would get things off of the ground with a sketchbook. Seeing as these things are about improvement and all I would be incredibly grateful with any C&C that is coming, and I will try and return the favour as best I can.

    I'll kick things off with 3 quite varied images I guess:

    Observational painting from photo.

    Painting of a wanderer/ bedouin... Inspired by Moorcock

    Name:  nasal_red.jpg
Views: 270
Size:  101.4 KB
    3D abstract landscape

    Assuming I have done this first post right then you should see something above, if not then pointers would be most appreciated.( I assume attachments are the way to go?)

    Is it possible to link to others sources for my images?

    As you can see these are all landscape type images. Not much too say really these were done a little while ago.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hey, congrats on making a sketchbook. I see some nice stuff already.

    These two are my favorites so far:
    http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...9&d=1332244032

    http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...4&d=1332245618

    In response to your question: Typically, attachments are the way to go because images can always 'disappear' from the sites you host them in, but in the attachment manager they don't. Its really up to you.

    The journey forward starts here I guess anything new uploaded will be current. If anyone has any thoughts about How I can Go about improving then they would be most appreciated.

    Thanks for taking the time to stop by,

    Hi calamity, thanks for leaving the comment in my sketchbook, great to have some constructive advice.

    Really good work on the enviros, you've got a great sense of perspective and atmosphere, something I really have to work on.

    COW #235

    Name:  COW253living-interplanetary-vessel.jpg
Views: 94
Size:  477.7 KB

    The Syrphoid family of insects were developed in the geno labs of Austros prime. The unusually low gravity of the planet enabled the geno scientists to experiment with lighter than air bio-transport to achieve orbital positions. Whilst developing these craft, scientists noticed an unusual ability of one of the sub-species to phase out of its holding containers and reappear some distance away.
    After observation it was noted that the creatures used a latent psychic jolt to create a jump point into warp space re-emerging at a pre-known point. Centuries later Austrans use Astral Syrphoids predominantly for its space travel needs. The example shown is a light version where the Navalign is connected to the primary brain functions of the creature via an umbilicus also connected by sub-spline is the Navaligns child. Such training flights are common within the Nav families and are used for the shorter interplanetary runs. The flotation sacs that surround the legs deflate at space pressure.
