This will be a bit of an art dump, recent & old.
No real order. Crit away!
I've ben told my main downfall is using black too much and textures in the wrong places and too early.
My attempts at matte painting
Painted in an afternoon with my friend helping my break my bad habbits!
Got a new hair brush so made this guy
1hr Speed paint
Very old attempt at a more cartoony style
Speed paint of Mr Maul
Paintover of a friends 3d mountain scene, added i the characters, snow and the buildings at the back
Speed study of cave looking at tone and light
Sped paint of a creature
Having films week next week at a local pub and they're having a little art exhibition going on at the same time showing peoples own design of a movie poster. So this is my entry.
bit of a rush getting it done and tried to use less black!
Too much textures, maybe yes. too much black, no (I like darkness)!
Keep up the good work!
Quick venom doodle i did between jobs
Decided bane was lonely so added these guys!

Playing around with stuff out of my comfort zone.

Work in progress
The finished skull & snake.
Some more studies.
Next thing to get onto is metal and hands.....or metal hands...
30 mins study after getting jonas's new brush set.
4 hours i think before work.
Bout 6 hours, see what i mean about the metal and hands. -___-
Very nice stuff! and yeah about the metal u need to make the lines tighter, make them more straight on the gun and add more contrast on your dropshdow i think,
but nevertheless nice sketchbook !
See my latest Sketchbook work!
Feel Free to comment!
Cheers man yeah i'll give it a go. Not used to doing suck straight tight lines so threw me off a little bit, will get on some gun studies & vehicles maybe.
Nice work you've got there, thanks for sharing. I kinda have to agree on using to much black though, I hope you realize pure black doesnt exist in the real world. Other then that, great work, keep pushing.
Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. it might not take you anyewhere, but it tones up the muscles that can.
yeah i know but it's so hard to brake out of....especially when i think it looks pretty cool but everyone tells me otherwise.
Live and learn i guess.
maximum of 10 mins each
A cave doodle, around 40 mins
C.H.O.W Entry: The Royal Family
Been crazy busy so only had time to do this.
Just a quick study before work.
Matte? Math? wha-???
Hm, try to change your hues abit, i notice you use the same pale yellow, and that kind of yellow often looks green, which is really nice for drawing plants in a warm red lighting. I would use a blend of golden/orange colors and titanium white for yellow lights. yes, you def use alot of black, try to replace blacks with colours that add depth. I mean warm, or cold colours- that way you can still have shadows, but with depth and attitude. Try some very dark, but satured reds (teracottas),blues (prussian with maybe tints of celadon?), purples are nice too.
If i don't reply to questions on others sketchbooks, send me a message. I'm very scatterbrained
Awesome crit buddy, yeah i'm slowly working out how to not use black so much. The pic above i was just colour picking from the ref photo, i didn't even think about using other colours.
Study before work. Will try and do another one later.
Been a while, been crazy busy here's some new studies and stuff.
1hr movie study challanges:
This is one of my tomb raider entries, slowly rendering her and changing bits here and there. Any and all crit very welcome and appreciated!
since this WIP I've changed the face *again* and done some more rendering on her shirt.
Study in lighting and cloth, can't remember the total time, think it was close to 3 hours.
