First of all, I'm kind of new in here, I've had an account until 8 years ago or something like that, and I've been checking out the forums every once in a while since. My Name is Rino or Rinu, I'm 25 years old, living in Switzerland and I am working as a Graphic Designer, planning to be a full time Graphic Designer / Illustrator / Concept Artist some day.
I thought it best to open up a sketchbook in here to get some critique to my work, so I know what I have to work on. These are just some random Sketches yet, I didn't paint a full image since a long long time ago.
Is it okay if I leave my watermarks in the pictures? I just prepared it for my blog like this but I can remove it if it's distracting.
The guy in the forest and the war tree are something for a comic idea I've once had. In the end there are "making of"s from the floating guy and the pencil warrior.
Alright, feel free to criticize and thanks for your attention.
Great that you finally started a sketchbook! The creatures look really cool, and no I didn't find the watermark distracting (dunno bout the others), in fact I thought it worked quite well with the images
Hope to see more of your work.
Hello! I'm trying to improve my artwork and I really could use your critique - S k e t c h b o o k
The stable sketch is the closest I've come to a full drawing in terms of composition and storytelling. It should depict a strange newborn animal laying in a stable being observed by a crow.
The idea for the living stone is from some DSG I think, but it never got out of the sketch phase. In the red thing I tried to practise my shading techniques.
The insect merchant is a character that I did a month ago and the second one is a sketch of a zombie-monkey-ish thing
Here's a burnt falconer as an entry to the ChOW#299, a ghostly member of the royal court.
My choice was a falconer that died together with his bird in a fire.
I guess I wanted to do to much at once, and got lost somewhere.
I did the left one in color first, but wasnt content with the pose, so I worked it over and ended up with the one on the right, with more comic-style proportions (notice the falcon looking like a grilled chicken). I was still not satisfied and worked on some silhouettes, ending up with a more painful pose, resembling the burning of the character.
It was a fun challenge, and very interesting to research the costumes and the bird.
Here's some Value study, where I tried to copy the values of the reference, without using the eye dropper tool of course.
Then there's some rogue-like character, I've had some trouble getting the values right on the whole body.
And some quick underwater creature, just wanted to color something, hence the random sketch
I would love to hear some critique on those!
A really quick random scribble which developed in this kind of interesting character. I don't know him yet, but he looks kind of sad. As far as I know he's some kind of farmer as well, maybe he is farming worms with this hack tool. Maybe I'll meet him again in another sketch we'll see…
