I knew you were going to become a enviro master. What i didnt know is your character concepts will be strong as well, like the skull guy,
that is sick.
this sketchbook is bitchin man
Thanks man, you're way too kind
Another environment sketch; making sure everything is in a sensible cone of vision seems to help a lot with the sense of depth.
Ooo man you totally killed me , how are you doing this? I am sure you hide some studies.
Thanks I'm mostly doing perspective studies that aren't worth posting. Unless you really like cubes and grids.
Speaking of more of the same... desert convoy thingy:
wow browsing your sketchbook is pretty inspiring, your drawing are awesome and your perspectives insane. Thanks for sharing!
Love the sketchbook. Hope you don't mind but I have featured it in my blog http://artfreck.blogspot.co.uk/2013/...vetchbook.html
@kevin_ Thanks man, certainly will.
@Joe I think it's going to be a while before I catch up with you, thanks for the kind words
@Yemi Thanks mate, glad you like it.
@ecki Thanks, good point. I find it hard to get a good balance of detail and abstraction, I'll definitely try to work more detail in.
@phoenicorn Thanks for that, you made my day.
More enviro sketches, trying to imply more depth and detail:
Wow Great update! I find myself saying the same thing about your work, it will be awhile till i catch up to the stuff you do hahahah Really Awesome! I am currently self teaching myself all this stuff. Its driving me crazy trying to find the answers but slowly but surely i think i might learning stuff hahahah. Doing the side profiles of those bikes was easy as pie just took awhile to render. Now im going to try drawing some in the 3/4th view. This is where i will fail majorly until i get it somehow lol Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook again! Cant wait to see more from you.
Oh my, look at your thumbnail sketches... no wait... your linework... no wait, your studies! gah! Simply fantastic work going on in this sketchbook ¬ eager to see more!
I'll be here with the Daggers for the rest of my art journey.
Keep pushing people, let us be great together-!
Yo man! Nice enviros! I agree with ecki to some degree. Like it post #120 those yellow circles are super distracting and are also in the dead centre of the piece. Somewhat similarly, in your last post, the guy in the first enviro is also right in the centre of the land. I do quite enjoy the second one quite a lot.
ecki and Jarrad, thanks guys you're absolutely right. Time to get into composition studies (Jama-style)... trying to think in terms of shapes, they were coming a bit easier towards the end, although I'm having trouble thinking in terms of balance and focal points and all that kind of stuff.
I agree about taking some of those thumbnails further. It’s great to see that you’re tackling your weaknesses head on. Keep it up!
Post 124=pure sex.
the thumbs are sick....18 and 21.(thats new lookin')...hell yeah..I dont know how you do that.
its just cool
You became popular ! More and more people come here. Haha, you deserve it. Good work.
Great sketchbook. I love those spaceships (and other stuff too). Some of your works kinda reminds me of Homeworld. Anyway, I'm gonna follow your thread too.
Thanks, I'll definitely have a stab at it.
I will, thanks
Thanks man, that grainy one is just using a brush with texture mode turned on (and set to height) in the brush options, it's really fun to play with.
Thanks, I really appreciate that
Thanks mate, don't worry about it, probably just a temporary lapse in judgement
What do you mean 'became'?! Thanks dude, now update that bloody sketchbook of yours
Thanks, I always liked the mothership design in Homeworld, definitely an influence. I love all the spiky bits and 45* cut lines
More comp studies:
WOW, awesome work man! I think that you're doing exactly the right thing by practicing those.
However, some of them lead the viewers eye directly off the page or have a reversed vignette, which is kinda awkward.
Most of them are kick-ass though! Just look at your last 2 updates and contemplate a little on how they feel to you. Keep up the hard work!
It means: you ARE popular, sorry for my shitty english, I should have used HAVE BECOME instead of became.
I will try to update this week or next, I suppose.
@Danny_K Thanks, they're definitely helping me to think more about shapes.
@ecki Thanks mate, I'm finding it difficult to actually 'compose' images, at the moment it's more like I'm finding shapes that I like and shuffling them around until they start to look like something. It might be better if I do some simpler b&w composition studies for a bit.
@razz Thanks man, they definitely help. I think it'd also be helpful to design a single scene, then block it in from a variety of angles and work out how best to compose the image that way.
@blu01 No, you were right (I think? Seems your english is better than mine), I was just joking. Thanks for your encouragement
@kamikazel33t Thanks, I will definitely try and get more movement in future
I've been doing a lot of Reilly heads lately which are really helpful, also started this portrait. Lots of value and drawing problems still. Looks like she's just been punched in the eye.
