Per aspera ad astra!
Havent posted here in a long time, I planned on becomming a conceptartist but I got lazy with it to be honest
but now i thought its time for another go at it!
Just starting to catch up with my sketching skills, working mostly in B&W now, but i just finished my first one in color so i thought it would be a good start for a new sketchbook!
CC, feedback and questions are welcome of course!

That first dude looks totally badass though it wouldn't hurt if you added a bit more detail to it.

NickyBeats: Thanks alot mate! yeah i definatly happy with that one, feels like a big happy accidents in retrospective..... we'll see if i can pull if off again
fireblade: haha yeah damit... i did it again lol! 4 months just flew by....
but to be honest, I recently found a more solid motivation and goal so I think slacking off wont happen anymore..... eh i hope lol !
htkpeh: thx mate! coming up
Kriss_Kringle: appreciate your feedback, personally i have a hard time going further in detail, i just feel it gets worse after a while
Topcross: thank u man
Meps: thank u thank u
CUKIERass: thx! i will
Psychobuddy: yeah values is something Ive been focusing alot on... colors though... not really lol.... but Thomas Scholes actually told me that values is the biggest part of color so it definatly isnt a waste of time learning values
So... ive got something new, trying to learn enviroments, this is from head, but im gonna get into studies more from now on, ive seen so many ppl in here taking leaps in development from doing alot of studies
EDIT: removed some scanned pics.., wanna keep this purely digital

I really felt it was time to move away from greyscale-environments .. colors, selections and the use of phototexture has been intimidating for some reason, but here we go, first one!
Ok - no more bw-enviros from now on! catch me posting one here and ill buy u a beer

Velocity Kendall: Tnx mate I like em too... they could use some colors though!
Something different here.
Trying to figure out color balance/harmony in these - not trying to make it look like something, just wanna become closer friends with colors, which has been problematic for me in the past. Starting to like it abit more... its not great, but things are going in the right direction at least

Oh nice comment man! Just what I needed to hear right now in a time of low confidence
Because you might actually be wrong though - Recently I was hired as an conceptartist. I did one month of trial for them, but they said quite frankly I wasnt good/fast enough. Definatly abit hard to hear, but its the truth. I need to go back to working up skills....

hi, I like all your sketches, they are very pleasant to look at, this finding forms in the shapes thing is very cool, I use it allot, for me the Feng Zhu free videos on his youtube channel did allot in terms of finding an approach to go from this shapes to more designed final concepts, maybe they can help you to
don't get to upset they said no for the concept art job, it happens, keep doing this and don't give up
October 5th, 2012 #28
Thanks alot mate. And I agree, the abstract formfinding process is very rewarding.
Yes I know of Fengs youtube channel, he is awesome!
Hehe thanks for the concern... but Im not the kinda guy that gets upset very easy, also Im extremely motivated person and few things motivate me more than failing. Im gonna be back ten times better.
