    Mike's Little Sketchbook

    So I've got my art on a few sites now.

    Prints: http://www.inprnt.com/gallery/mikeyakovlevart/
    Blog: http://yakovlevart.blogspot.com/
    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MikeYakovlevArt
    Tumblr: http://yakovlevart.tumblr.com/
    : http://yakovlevart..com/
    Website: http://yakovlevart.weebly.com/

    I know it's a lot, but if you Like my Facebook or follow one of the blogs, you'll pretty much be good =]
    This site is still confusing to use even though I've uploaded so much, haha. But just go to the last page to see new stuff.

    Mike

    I think I'm just gonna go ahead and dump a bunch of work I've been doing so that you guys can get an idea of my work.
    Also so I don't have to wait before I can upload more recent stuff.

    The graveyard, I was playing around with simplicity. I had this comp/color/in my head for a while and I wanted to jot it down before it escaped me.
    The frog creature, Police and gang member are for a secondary world I am working on. Taking place on a fictional planet, somewhat futuristic, Blade Runner-esque.

    I really love enviornments

    One thing I've been striving to get good at is environments. Since I'm painting digitally I get to play with different textured brushes and photos.
    Enjoy this set.

    Man , I love the city enviro. Very nicely done.

    The last one , although It was headed in a good direciton. The eyes are bombarded by the 4 long things put right in the middle. I'd suggest cutting those out if you're continuing working on it.

    Also for Environments do Thumbnails. If you do those , you'll get more able to manage Mood and Atmosphere and also establish the ground for a better environment.

    Cheers and good luck.

    Welcome to CA. Really digging these, the only critique I've got for you is to use solid brushes more instead of ones with the opacity set too low. It muddies up the colors and creates weird edges that draw a viewers eyes where they shouldn't. I was the same way for the longest time, keep at it. I will be back for more.

    1 Hour enviornment sketch

    took an hour or two to play with shapes and composition. Beginning to play with a new method for finding compositions, where I just make broad shapes/copy paste/re-size and look for a decent comp. I feel I am still lacking confidence when it comes to pushing my dynamic perspective and angles, but I am slowly edging myself into it.
    I've been checking out the EOW and using the ideas on there to draw (see what I did there?/i'llshowmyselfout) sketches and get inspiration from them.

    Having some fun

    I've always admired the silly type of illustration. Flat colors and characters that you don't even know if they are human or not. I guess this was my attempt at it. It was a nice break from all the realistic renders I've been doing.

    It seems I am running out of inspiration. Or maybe I'm just getting lazy.
    I've been talking to a bunch of small & big time artists lately, and I am getting some wise words. Still find myself not being so eager to create art. Maybe it's a time issue.

    I thought I would be uploading awesome artwork and it would look really good, just like everyone else on here, but I've come to terms that I am not that good. So I'll just keep uploading what I can, even if I personally think it's bad. We'll have a nice timeline of my progression.

    This one's kinda boring, but I was having a lot of fun with the marks.

    I love to work traditionally, but sometimes I just don't feel like setting all my paints up.

    Had this really fun idea of a Pirate themes book cover,
    I was indecisive between these two layouts.
    Which one did I go with?

    I'd really love a critique or some comments eventually. Also, is there a way to change the thumbnail for this sketchbook? I think it's a bit boring, it doesn't I didn't know it would be the first post I make. Anyways this is what I chose of the 2 comps to take to final.

    SKA-DOOOOOSH!!!!

    wow, great start to your sketchbook. I like the roughness of the quick digital pieces.

    Critiques on my work always welcome!!
