    Vezarez's sketchbook

    Hi. So I'm a 19 year old lad from Ireland looking to better himself when it comes to art. I've browsed this site for years but in recent months I've started taking my art more seriously, and I hope to one day work as an illustrator, or even concept artist, so I figured starting a sketchbook here would be a good way to motivate myself and get some critique, and hopefully learn from the awesome talent here.

    I apologize for some crappy pics but my scanner hates me and refuses to work, so I gotta make do with what I've got

    Been working digitally these past few months, so here's some progress pics.

    The further down you go the more recent they are, with the top one of the bluey green face being one of my first digi paints, and the barn at the end being a painting I did yesterday.

    Wow..you are doing some supercool things graphically and you have a great sense for color.

    Unfortunately, how flat your drawings look detracts from the effect. Not in that you shouldn't mix graphic flat areas into your work, but the "rendered" areas look flat. Try to get away from working from photos and draw from life more; draw yourself is need be. Do a full-out rendered drawing with a value range from pure white to pure black to test yourself. If you're drawing in a grey sea, that's a warning sign.

    But very exciting images, keep it up! :)

    edit: Oh, and welcome to CA!

    Thanks very much!

    Yeah you're definitely right about things looking too flat. I'll try to push for some greater contrast bewteen my light and dark tones.

    In the meantime here's a wee photo study I did earlier today

    Some doodles I did today in my sketchbook. The first 2 are from life; a quickish self portrait and a study of a weirdly shaped shiny black bottle of cologne, then some crappy gestures. I threw in an old digi paint as well because why not? And damn my scanner, it always brightens my images.

    I like your use of textures in the digital paintings.
    The self portrait is looking more 3 dimensional than the previous pencil sketches but it still feels a bit flat because of the harsh lighting. Next time add some mid tones to show the transition from light to shadow.

    Thanks! My light source for the self portrait sketch was a rather bright lamp shining on one side of my face, so that's why the light is very strong, but I see what you mean about the midtones. I'll keep at it!

    Woo more sketchbook doodles. With the hand studies, half are bridgman studies and the other half are ref'd from my own hand/imagination.
