    Sketchbook - phome one - Gonne Kuehl - Critique me please!

    Hello, my name is Gonne Kühl or phome one and
    I am finishing my apprentice as "Mediengestalter" in Germany,
    which is Kind of a Media Designer.

    After having done that I would like to apply for game design studies.
    I have been drawing for Years but just sketches wich never have been that super great. I have made some quite good canvases and
    some cool projects,too like spraying a fighting jet and a big bus.
    At the moment I am spending every second which I am not working
    on improving my skills and building a portfolio.
    At the Moment I am constructing my website, too.
    Unfortunately I am struggling with some Bugs
    and therfore my HP will be coming up in some time hopefully.

    Now I wanted to start Posting some of the newer things I am most proud of in order to slam my new won confidence
    and see on what I can improve, since I don't know anyone who does similar stuff in real life.
    And therefore really would appriciate good critique quite a lot.

    So here we go:

    I made This one using some Photo textures and Painting in Photoshop The spaceships are an insect body I took a photo of when I sat on my balcony, today.

    This bus-painting sadly had to be removed since the paint didn't stick to the foil we used for covering the glass But at least I have my photo

    Hope it works this time really have been struggling with getting started due to the bugs lately.

    The Juggling Mosquito - sketched that yesterday in the park after work an now threw some color onto it. Think im gonne push this further

    And before that I started a background for I-don't-know-what-yet. Made the sky with spraycans. Unfortunately I had only left-overs in kind of one value range.
    Could someone give me - besides the lightning, which im gonna start to work on tomorrow - some advice on composing the landscape? how do you guys come up with landscapes?
    I thought of Painting a foreground element in the left bottom, where I would place the selling point - perhaps ome kind of funny character.

    My first underwater environment.
    I am looking forward to fill it with life.

    Still figuring out the light of the spots
    and thinking about what kind of vehicle
    could emit that light.
    Any ideas?

    Here is a spaceship I started to render. I am not really shure about the 3D form. think i am gonna try a 3/4 view on that one to improve my understanding of its form to render it correctly. Does anyone of you guys have an advice design-wise or something that i don't see which strucks him or her?

    This is the sketch i did in today's lunch break:

    And this is the rendering i started this evening:

    I perhaps want to render this one for my portfolio.
    would you put the character in a more interesting pose?
    Any advice?

    The last few weeks I filled two sketchbooks. Getting a bit better and starting to feel improvement.
    I have studied anatomy quite a lot the last months also am going to a more or less regular draw drawing session.

    Im gonna look up some reference now.
    I think it's a nice approach to take your sketch as far as you can/want without reference
    and correct the mistakes you made afterwards. this trains your drawing skills from imagination
    and shows you where your visual library lacks detail. i think if you just copy stuff from reality
    you lose connection to the training of your design skills and tend to overestimate yourself since
    its so easy to trace a photo without being aware of why things are like they are.
    What I am doing at the moment, too, is writing down the stuff i am thinking about when drawing in my sketchbook.
    this helps the understanding side quite much, i think.

    edit ... wip i know about how weak this piece is, still, but i have to go to work earlier tomorrow.
    good night!

    Cool stuff. Your city-scapes and landscapes with structures on them are especially strong.

    Cool stuff. Your city-scapes and landscapes with structures on them are especially strong.
    Thank you very much!
    You make me feel like Superman who just got a ton of pumpkins

    Man, I was happy to see all the still life paintings at the end of the sketchbook. Because I started to look at the posts and I thought they were missing, as they might help you a lot to reach a much more threedimensional rendering. The pipe wrench is just awesome. Good to see too, that you do some structural drawings.
    So far it seems that you are on a good way. Maybe you could care about your values more and rely less on photo textures. Instead study the forms of nature.
