    Ranald's Sketchbook

    Hi all,

    I started this sketchbook with some older stuff (better than leaving it hidden in a dusty folder), and then it quickly gets up to date.

    Constructive feedback would be great, especially if you can tell me what to focus on to improve. Alternatively, things you think I did well can help too. Thanks in advance.

    -Ran

    This is my first Photoshop illustration, done in late 2012. It took a long time and it was a crash-course in Photoshop for me

    looking back on it I realise the composition is poor and could be fixed but it is too important an image for me to change

    Here is my favourite piece for the moment. It was inspired by Eduardo Pena (Hey mate, If you're watching )
    It doesn't have the cinematic impact of even one of his sketches but hey, it's a start.

    Awesome start on your sketchbook, I realy like your enviroments! In my opinion I think you have to work on your characters a bit, maybe do some gesture-studies to make them less stiff! Keep it up!

    Thanks, you are totally right - I have been neglecting character stuff to try and improve my environments. I think it's time to get back into gesture stuff.
