    Rowan Abbott Bits and Pieces - Feedback Welcome!

    Hi, I'm Rowan Abbott, a concept artist and illustrator from England.
    New to the site so please tell me off if I'm doing anything wrong.

    Here's some sketchbook work, mostly very much unfinished, but I wanted to stick it all somewhere.

    Also please give your comments, good or bad. I like feedback. Thanks!

    I'm really liking this stuff! Your characters are distinct, and those thumbnails are turning out well

    Thanks very much for the kind words - all needs a lot more work though. Working on some sci-fi at the moment which I'll post pretty soon

    Try to shade/render things with a little more color dimension, maybe warmer in the light, cooler in the shadow... it seems you are not varying the hue at all, just keeping in one color and changing only the darkness (black) & lightness (white) of it. Switching up other factors too makes it more dynamic. I have always had that problem too and still don't quite know how to handle it, but studies can help you get an idea of what to do~ And checking what others have to say about it.
    I think your style is really interesting and your characters have a lot of personality.
    post 10, the bedroom layout, reminds me of like a point and click adventure game background.
    Keep posting!

    Cheers Muddy, those are some really useful points - you're right that i definitely have to play with hues with the shadow and light. Been doing pen and ink for so long that i need to learn colour theory from the bare basics. Thanks for commenting
