    Chris's Sketchbook

    Hey guys,

    I've been drawing for most of my life from just pencils in sketchbooks to 3d work in maya, then a couple of years ago got into acrylic painting on canvas. About six months ago picked up a tablet to get into digital painting.

    I much prefer concept art style paintings, mostly landscapes but I like vehicles and characters too. I created a profile on DeviantArt just a few months ago and in one of my recent pics someone recommended I start a Sketchbook on here. So, here I am.

    Definitely interested in any feedback anyone can give regarding my work. I try to draw as often as I can (which isn't everyday regrettably) and I just want to get better and better.

    Without further delay, here are most of my recent pieces.

    Nice stuff man! I would say just keep studying vehicle design, and working on life anatomy. The variety and imagination is there. Just keep it up.

    gesture drawings

    Here are a page of 30 second gesture drawings I did from the following site earlier this week. Definitely need a lot of work on these. :/

    Heres my drawing for today. Study from a picture. Couldn't get the foreground right tho. In the pic there were a bunch of ferns and the water was frozen. I like how the mountains turned out overall.

    You got some nice stuff here, keep it up :]

    One thing you could improve on is lighting and tonal values. For example, hard reflective materials like metal, glass, etc will generally have crisp strong highlights with hard edges. Be mindful of where the illumination is coming from, and its colour temperature. For example, a warm light source like a fire or the evening sun will give cool shadows (dark muted blue/purple, not black, try not to use pure black). Water can be tricky to paint, as it is transparent and yet reflects the sky, the opposite shore etc (depending on calmness of water). I would recommend doing quick tonal/colour studies from photos. Having a gist of how colours and light work will really push the realism of your creations.

    Thanks a lot. Really appreciate the detailed response. Will try to get some tonal value studies done. I definitely agree that it is a weak point for me.

    Another photo study. Pretty happy with it overall except for the tree didn't turn out too well.

    Just finished this did this one today. Figured I would do a non photo study this time. Let me know what you think.

    May be my last pic of 2012. Although I'm not working tomorrow so I might bang out another.
