Annnd done. I think. Unless someone else thinks I'm not done, I guess.
I was going to comment and say to work on shifting your values across forms to combat flatness, but it looks like you're starting to do that. Definitely also do studies to reinforce your personal work. Take that last image for instance, I'd bet you could find a pretty good reference for that, even if it's just to look at the lighting scenario on a human face.
Keep it up!
Trying to do some environments, but I've gotten a little stuck on this one. I have no idea how to do the buildings! Seems like proper concept artists just fling a bunch of crazy brushes around and then BAM! Realism. I can't quite figure out how to do that though.
First proper attempt at painting a landscape from imagination. Seems okayish..
I'm also working on figure drawing and anatomy daily, but I'll be scanning all of those in at once.
Keep up the good work
My NEW sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...heme-Challenge
More of Adva, a personal character I may be implementing in a project soon.
Continuing anatomy studies as well... just haven't gotten to a scanner yet.
I am not an expert on environments by any means, but in my opinion it looks as if you have already improved. I like how you handled the sky especially, although the tree in the foreground looks a little weird. It looks as if the furthest left leaves are making a bit of tangent with the rock-face, and taking away some of the depth.
Just some simple sketches.. trying to figure out an outfit for the girl in my previous post, and trying to get accustomed to blocking stuff out without line work. I'll probably do some more and then take three or so and work them up nicer later. If I can manage to find three I like.
Even after just a week or so of a few anatomy sketches every day, I already feel like I'm improving. Even with just a simple little pose sketch like this, I feel much more confident in my drawing. And my legs are noticeably less awful than usual.
@Pomadillo - Hmm. That's supposed to be sort of a vine climbing up over the rock, but I do see what you mean.. I'll endeavour to find some better way of working that out. Thanks!
Work has had me too beat to do much lately... but I'm back on the horse!
WIP for today. Anatomically, I'm already noticing that her face is too skinny (and that I need to take that eyebrow down a notch. ). Iunno, I like head scarves.
Crits and comments welcome!
Something about the eyes is still bugging me, but I can't figure it out.
@ kevin_ : Yeah, I've gotten the contrast comment alot. I'm working on it.
Just when you think you're getting back in the game... food poisoning.
Here's some things I painted pretty quick a couple days ago. Trying to get in the habit of speeding up my workflow and leaving things rough instead of polishing them all up. Can always do that later.
