My favorite is the first sketch. And the bridge. How long did it take you to finish it? It almost doesn't look like a simple sketch.
I'm a beginner and you just inspired me to try making some digital landscape sketches today. Never done it seriously before and actually I'm practicing anatomy now... but yeah. Yours look awesome.
The carrier damage sketch doesn't give me a feel of completion in the same way as the other sketches because of the unfinished top part. At least in my eyes (untrained eyes!).
EDIT: Here is the post with EVERYTHING that I have posted into this tread. Keeping it updated..
Thanks for the comment!
All of those were done from imagination, and the most difficult part in that is how to start and how to find good values. That can take a lot of time or if you get lucky, it can happen very fast. After that it is just detailing.. which is not even necessary sometimes, because the image is already captured, like in that last thumbnail. You are right that the first one saw the most finishing, in the second I purposefully left the top part less detailed (it's not as important, so shouldn't focus on it), and the third never went past thumbnail phase.
But I'm glad if those inspired you somehow, and thanks again for the comment.
Here's some more, these are just sketches done in the past by the way, new stuff coming as soon as possible
dtouched - Certainly not on one layer But trying to keep the amount down, my bad photoshop habit is to make a new layer for almost anything. And after million billion layers none of them is useful because you can't find anything. But masks are sometimes really helpful.
Thanks for the comments again. Perspective definitely needs some work, Mike you're right about that. Shouldn't just try to fudge the thumbnail around and try to make it 'kinda' work. M.Calza, I'll post figures when they get better, which sometimes feels it's gonna take 10 years or something, but definitely sooner or later. I'm a matte painter and retouch artist in my daily job so enviros and values come quite naturally.
Anyway here's some verrrry quick studies loosely based on photos. Some new epicness coming hopefully soon
