    mmode's Sketchbook

    Hey there, my name is Mariel! This is my first time being on a forum, especially one like ConceptArt.

    I am currently a community college student, but I want to be an heavyweight illustrator in the future >:-D But I don't really know how to get there :"D So for now I focus on drawing as much as I can!

    I suppose I'll start by presenting some landscape sketches I've done. I am a bit directionless so I am open to critique, it's why I came to this site. :-)

    The last two was an experiment with Google Sketchup that I wasn't inspired to finish. I really need to learn perspective.

    I was watching videos on ctrlpaint.com and I wanted to do some of the exercises on the videos, like the "tiny study" and the material sphere (since texture isn't really a strong point of mine)

    The one above were three mini thumbnails from imagination based on a photo of a tree. I used the colors in the photo and the tree to inspire the thumbnails.

    Welcome to CA
    First of all, from what you've shown, your sense of color is good and you have nice flow in your lines. I'm curious to see more of your work.
    Keep going at it.

    Whooaaa, your use of color is so beautiful. I have no tips to give you since you're way above me, but I love the lighting and sense of mood you set with those soft colors. Keep up the good work!

    I like how smooth those paintings are in your first post. Awesome atmospheres/environments.

    Hi mate, and welcome aboard! Let me say that your fantasy is admirable. I love your themes and environments. Your drawings already have much personal taste, not to talking about your perception of forms, colors and dimensions. If you go on like this and do more studies everyday is assured that you will be a very good illustrator.
    PS: second drawing on first post... very beautiful and emotional.

    Heyyy, Mmode! I didn't know you had yourself a CA sketchbook. It's a bit easier to track you on here than tumblr.
    Your paintings are looking nice as always, glad to see you tackling more environments. I need to do more of that myself.
    No real crits, just keep up the good work! Hope to see more soon.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    Cheers

    Great start, would like to see some still life drawings and paintings from you, keep hammering your core fundamentals especially perspective as I see you've already begun to do it.
