    Carlos Leonard's Portfolio

    I am currently going into my junior year at Bloomfield College. Since my state does not have superpower art schools I am mostly self taught when it comes to concept art.

    Long story short, I first started digital painting in march of this year and have fallen in love with it. I am hoping that by next spring I can acquire get accepted in the game art internship at Avalanche Studios.

    Please be honest about the critiques and show no mercy...I know I have a lot to improve on, but for now let me know what needs critical improvements.Thanks

    You need to learn how to use the pencil.

    First off thanks for being the first to leave a comment.

    By learning to use the pencil do you mean my line flow? It would help if you expand on the critique. Thanks

    i think he meant that you need to go back to the basics...good basics make sure that learning new stuff is much faster.
    You need to study form, anatomy, color and try to imagine the objects you draw in 3d space...that way you can see more easily where the shadows should be etc. the last technique helps me alot. Your form and general lack of anatomy make your figures look flat and lifeless. Color use is also flat. Always good advice is to paint still life. it gets you going on how to use values and see colors. It makes your work really stand out. So you've got alot of work ahead of you, but who of us doesn't so keep working.
    My sketchbook Comments & Crits always welcome!

    Right now you are drawing what you think you see and not what you actually see.
    You need to do a very rigorous and never ending study of the effects of light and how it interacts with forms.
    Do more still lifes and studies from life.

    Thanks a lot for all the feedback guys. This summer is going to be nonstop work, so these critiques will play a great role.

    I like your sketches, the walrus looks very good but you really need to improve your technique as well.

    Pretty much what everyone else said. Your environments and human anatomy are particularly weak.

    Some of your drawings don't have enough value range so they read very flat.
