Hello concept artists! I'm Karl Levy, and I have been an aspiring professional concept artist for as long as I've known that there was such a profession...which is to say about a couple of months now. I've been drawing all of my life pretty much, and when I was a kid I used to spend much of my (in class and free) time drawing environments and characters for and from video games. I was always what one would consider a talented illustrator, but I grew up to take on more "mature" work in both architecture and graphic design. While I did enjoy that work, I have always been drawn more to illustration and the epic side of games and movies, so I'm in the process of making a career shift in that direction-concept art for games in particular. After lurking here for awhile, I see that I have much to learn and I'm trying to do it as rapidly as possible! I'd appreciate any feedback and critique I can get...thanks!

Some more recent stuff...based on that great Concept Art 101 thread by Seedling. I took a household item, a porcelain teddy bear and transformed it into a little red riding wolf character

Here's a "jazzed up" self portrait-I added most of the beard, the sunglasses and the mohawk, and changed my outfit as well- and environment sketch of a landscape in the clouds (I know it needs work), a drawing of a Rhino loosely based on reference (I did not have a picture showing the rhino at that particular angle), and lastly some drawings of a velociraptor from imagination; I was working on trying to visualize it in 3 dimensions.

My Journey into Anatomy
Like most people, the hardest thing for me to draw is definitely people, particularly the hands, feet, and any poses drawn from the back. So I've been doing studies on human anatomy like crazy from photographs, still life, and anatomy books to get an understanding of how everything works and where things should be located in and on the body so that I can draw them more realistically from imagination. I'll keep working on this subject until I die I suppose! Gotta keep drawing...

Front and Back Studies
Here are some of the more extensive anatomy drawings I've been doing, trying to piece everything together. Gotta work on those hands and feet! Sorry about the scan quality, some of the shading and finer lines are lost
