Thread: OldManPsylus Sketchbook
August 16th, 2012 #1
Hi guys, I'm Braden (aka 'OldManPsylus') and I just started doing digital concept art in the past month or two. I, along with a friend, started a company to create indie games and realized that at least one of us needed to be working on the visual side of things. I've got a long way to go, so here I am making a start! Hope to make some good friends and receive all the critique I can

You're really good at creating moods in your pieces. I have no suggestions to offer though, although I will say I like what I'm seeing so far.
My sketchbook: Rank Amateur Attempts *cough* Art
Critique at will. And have a great day!

As somewhat of a response to Psycho, I did a few 30s poses and followed it up with some silhouettes. Generally, I'll find something in a silhouette that I like enough to go forward with. At least.. that was the case with the last 2 digital drawing that I put up. I guess those two steps are sort of my per-drawing anatomy/pose studies. I've been deleting them after I'm done using them, but I suppose it would make a lot of sense to go ahead and at least throw the silhouettes up before I throw them out
So here they are, 10x30s pose sketches and 4x silhouettes. If you can't tell, my next drawing is probably going to be of a female.. Need me a break from the hulking caveman!
Edit: I just noticed how much my far right silhouette looks like Tomb Raider... lols

Hey mate! Nice start. Maybe pushing a little more on your definition on body, and working from the start, I mean anatomy, form, those kind of stuff. Sometimes can be kinda boring, but you have to find the fun on it, I mean, playing with those forms, maybe adding some sort of things. Like you practice with a chest, and then you add it a kevlar, or something like that, be creative and it will be fun

Your pieces are all really great! Your backgrounds are most impressive. Very nice details and great use of color. I'd just work on defining your figures a bit more. In a couple of your pieces the figures look a bit stiff and placed into the scene in a way that looks as though they have a glow on the outer edges. Just making them fit into the backgrounds a little more smoothly would really make your pieces improve a lot. Keep up the great work though, you've got a lot of really nice art here. I can't wait to see more.

Just some leg/arm studies (not foot or hand studies!) that I assigned to the newbie CA study group. About time to turn them in! Also decided that I really don't like marking muscles with red. Much easier to mark muscle locations by just filling in muscle fibers with shading. Looks better too.
