    Mattīs Sketchbook

    Hey guys! I am a complete newbe in the forum. I thought I could just start my own Sketchbook and share my stuff with you people. I have been drawing for about 5 years, but since I have finished secondary school, about half a year ago, I have been seriously focusing on my self-teaching drawing studies, in order to get a job in the Concept Art Industry. I very appreciate any critique, piece of advice or comment Thank you for your visit on my sketchbook

    These are my latest digital paintings.

    These works are amazing! I am a huge fan of zombies.
    I know you'll say "practice!" but how did you start off with sketching and digital painting? I want to do my own zombie army!

    Keep up the great work

    Hey Charlotteis! Thanks for your compliment. Hmm basically I started just sketching around. At the very beginning you have to understand very basic forms, a basic sense for 3 dimensionality and your practical drawing skill. With practical drawing skill I mean your abbility to draw clean and precise lines, what comes naturally after you drew a lot. For some technic stuff you can check "EPISODE 36 Traditional Mediums" of the FZD School Channel on youtube. You find a lot of great help in the internet, particulary for beginners. Check out for example sycras channel and web side. Of course the skills that i mentioned before come after time but it is very important to reflectate a lot about your work, to use a tonne of reference pictures and let other people judge your stuff, because at a low skill level many people will be able to point out some of your mistakes. Your abbility to judge yourself and to "see" the world around will grow by time. You will probably experience that you draw sth that you really like and you dont know how it would be improvable but some time afterwards you ll smile and understand that its quite creppy. I actually started just practicing my drawing skill. I seriously study the colour and painting stuff since a few month now and its till now my weakest point. I think its more important to understand more about drawing before you start painting but this is just my point of view. But all in all the most basic and important aspekt of studying drawing your passion for it. If you love what you do and you have enough willpower to keep on practicing and to sacrifice other stuff as playing computergames you will succed after some time. So try to get inspired, buy yourself a sketchbook and draw. Good luck!

    I really dig the russian dude with the bionic arm.The hammer and sickle are a cool soviet flag homage with a futuristic touch,of course.

    Kick-ass work, man! Only thing i can say is watch your saturation ( go easy on it and vary it depending on where the light is coming from.) and your painting is a bit muddy, but i guess that may just come with motor controls gained over time that we will both gain eventually.

    Looks great! The only thing I can think of is it might be nice to see some darker shadows, just to push the contrast a little and make the characters pop more.

    I kept on working on the guy from yesterday. I got some valuable critique in the critique section about the light stirking from the side, the too dark shadows and my missing knowledge about the planes of the face. May Im going to apply it on this one when i find time or I ll just think about it in my next painting.

    Those same position sketches are AMAZING.The perspective is incredibly stunning.Keep up the good work there

    If there's anything I have to comment is that I don't think your digital paintings are standing out much because they don't have that much contrast with the background.And I think the colors are a bit too stiff (does that make sense?).Try adding in some reflected light--I think it'll turn out much better

    I'd suggest some secondary light from the low left to give the cheek/jaw more definition. Otherwise a good start, the colors fit very well

    I found some more time to put in the painting. After a great crit made me notice that there is not really any temprature variation (is this the correct term?) in the colours going on I tried to fix that.

    Thx kevin! Actually this is what came to my mind these days aswell before I saw your post. The day before yesterday, when I tried to tighten up the render of this dark elf lady and to do some studys, I failed big time. I had the feeling to have forgotten everything I had learned. That made me think about the way I approach things and I got to the point that Im working to unorganized and doing way to little studies. Ill try to focus more on certain subject-matters and to use more reference material. I ve been so stupid not use reference before that much! Guess you got to get aware of your mistakes to work on them so there is a good point. Here are some sketches I did these days while work and some foot studys I did today.

These are a few of the musculature studies I made. I thought that it would help me to know where the muscle conncet to the bones to be able to understand them so I try to studie those points now.
