    Apostrophe's Sketchbook

    Hello ConceptArt.org,

    I've been following this website for years, and now I have decided to commit myself to practising regularly. I really would like to improve as an artist and so I am working on painting from reference mostly. I have been doing well for over a week and want to continue and be diligent.

    Major areas I struggle with (and intend to improve!)
    -Color
    -Scale/Proportion
    -Environments

    Anyway, here are some images to start my sketchbook off.

    C&C will be most appreciated!

    Okay so I want to enter the Dragon Age contest over at CGHub. I have a bad habit of trying to take things too quickly, so I want to make sure I prep myself well before I start on the 3D version. I'm going to do a bunch of thumbs and a final concept, maybe even a turnaround before I start modelling it.

    Anyway, the first image is the body type i am going for. Exaggerated, but still sexy in a way.



    Here are the first inklings of concepts I have started. I have been doing concept art for like 14 hours today.. so I could only manage these 3 before I retire to bed.



    Thanks

    Just an update. Was a bit sick and unmotivated on the weekend, had a hard time getting anything going. Got a burst of inspiration today which helped me finalize the idea for the Dragon Age contest. i did an orthographic below so I can flesh it out easier in Maya. Also, a quick study of a Chevelle, really painful for me because I never draw cars. Please let me know if my colors are way off, its something I do struggle with and am purposefully not using the color picker.

    Long time no update.

    Well I've been busy trying to put a portfolio together on my spare time, and other things that got in the way... managed to poop this one out today, still really rough with my wacom... I'll need to get a replacement pen.
