Jake Hatt's Sketchbook
Ok, Brief introduction. My name is Jake Hatt. I am 17 years of age and am currently taking an extended diploma in art and design. My goal for now is to improve to a professional, or at least employable level. I am putting this thread up mainly for my own sake so i can see how I improve but anybody who wants to follow my journey and help me along the way, it is appreciated .

Ok a bit of a spam today, most of these are done with a ball point pen and the two that aren't you can probably figure out

I think you could do with more basic anatomy studies and paying closer attention to proportions but your color work is good and I really like the landscape you posted first!
(Also hey, we're the same age!)

That first pic really drew me in! Great use of reflection in the gold heads. Keep up the good work!

I haven't had time to upload a lot on here recently because of coursework and such but here is how im progressing. I see this one as an artistic landmark for myself because its one of the first where i have carefully considered the design properly. feel free to tell me how you feel about it

Hey Jake thanks for the post, keep doing the studies man! I really like the stealth class dino you did!
One thing I can say is that when doing poses it helps to make them a bit more asymmetrical, try to break the symmetry of the arms and legs.
Here's a bit about that: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_oR7sYJzWZ1...atic+poses.jpg
Its got to do with animation but I think it is a great principal that can be applied to character concepts.

Ok this one i have tried to add a little more character and animation to, which i still need to work on (thanks for the advice Philipopotamus ) . This is a follow up to the previous image, however, this one is the social class of this species. And yes i know what a sin it is to use different styles for the same idea but I am unemployed so i can do what i like ;D.

Cool designs on those skeletons. Maybe a harder brush on your digital paintings would make things more clear/refined

pretty good artwork, but whats best is your ideas and thats what being a concept artist is all about! i do have an advice, use a thinner brush tip and be more line economical if you understand what i mean. try to figure out in your mind how the next curve or line is going to be and then try to put that on paper instead of going back and foreward with the pencil untill it looks good.

just some reference of some birds
I have figured out birds are made up of 3 basic circles: one for the torso, one for the head and one for the flabby bit at the top of their legs.
The rest you can sort of just....
