    Ben's sketchbook c:

    hi,
    i am 19 years old and started drawing some " concept designs" 2 month ago.
    In my childhood i used to draw a lot and i was a big fan of monsters/aliens, sci fi stuff.So until 2 month ago i hadnt been drawing anything for years.I have always been interested in art related activities tho.I was painting games workshop miniatures for a quite a long time.
    However now im drawing quite a lot and i toy with the idea of eventually becoming a concept artist.I always have doubts tho and im not sure if i actually have the potential.At the moment i try to draw every day even when im actually too lazy^^
    In this thread i will regularly upload new drawings.
    The purpose of these is to serve as a basis for paintings when i start working digital in the future.
    Feel free to criticise !
    So here is a bunch to start with:

    Hi, welcome to CA

    Your drawings are quite pleasing to the eye in terms of design and flow. If your goal is to work as a concept artist I would suggest to study anatomy and perspective, and to learn how to give a sense of form with shading. Concerning potential, it is essentially a matter of work, dedication and time.

    Happy drawing!

    Well, I dont know much but I would second what Alex says!
    I really like what you are doing tho, especially the vehicles. Lovely designs. Thats something I would like to do more of!
    You seem to be off to a great start so keep at it and I'll look forward to seeing your progress.

    Love the designs, I think you have pretty good sense of forms. Your work will definitely progress as you learn more anatomy and perspective.

    It looks like you do a lot of erasing on some drawing, that's good in some areas, but I find it can also be very destructive to a design. Especially when it infringes on an area that was already well defined and you end up trying redraw what you lost.

    thank you sir )) your kind words are boosting my self esteem and motivation a lot!
    Yes...most of the erasing comes from struggeling with perspective.Need to work on that.

    2 new designs.They are both not finished yet and the perspective is pretty bad, especially the second one..i will correct that and post them again.Im quite happy with the overall feel of the first one tho.The second one needs some more work but i think it could turn out decent.I feel like spaceships are a great design practice.

    inspired by bobby rebholz i drew a creature.I had no idea what it would look like but as soon as i got the head defined the rest just came naturally.That method seems to work quite well.Dont overthink things just draw quite happy with the front part the back is a little rough.oh,and some skull studies.Name:  Tentakelschnecke.jpg

    some studies i did.Drawing mammals is a nightmare....i really prefer insects^^much more defined forms.
    The purpose of these is to not to end up with a very nice finished drawing but to get the forms, proportions and overall feel of the animal correct.Name:  insekten.jpg

    Good Job on the animal studies, I especially like the skulls. To better draw mammals you could try breaking them down in to simple form like the insects. Maybe try some skeletal studies of mammals to better understand the anatomy.

    i had the idea of some kind of spaceship that has some sort of giant sci fi grub integrated in its front.Its kept alive by nutrition supply and used to extract the brains of victims.
    I like the idea a lot, my execution is kinda terrible tho^^the perspective is completely fucked up and the design is a little random.Im not gonna draw another spacship until i have studied perspective a lot...this is just getting ridiculous...highschoollook^10..Name:  extractor 3.jpg

    The carnex is a heavily armed warrior who slaughters his way through the enemy front line.
    Once he broke through the defence his implanted demon breaks out, turning him into an unstoppable raging berserker claiming as many lifes as possible. More often than not a carnex doesnt survive the first outburst.

    Hey so after looking through the thread i think i want to give you the most important advice i received and neglected far too long myself:

    Speaking from experience, drawing monsters is super fun and helps a lot with creativity but real life studys are bread and butter for improving.They may seem dull and boring sometimes but their value can't be stressed enough.As someone who often struggles taking his own advice i recommend doing a daily life study and rewarding yourself afterwards with creating an awesome creature etc.

    Additionally i really like your creature designs, especially the last one reminds me of some things H.R Giger did.If you dont know him yet and need some more inspirations for crazy alien/creature disgn you should look him up.

    Keep up the good work!
