    Ranarh's sketchbook

    As of 3rd September 2016, my new sketchbook thread is here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...etchbook-Vol-2

    I'll post sketches and speedpaintings here, in pencils, digital, and whatever comes up along the way. I hope to motivate myself to sketch more this way.

    My current sketchbook is A4 sized and too daunting with its huge empty pages, so I aim to fill it quickly and get a smaller one. Lately I've sketched all sorts of animals as preparation for designing some fantasy creatures.

    Mount for my world Genius Loci. Part gazelle, part giraffe, part greyhound. Really fast, too.

    Barely a speedpainting, more a coloured sketch, of one of the flying ships of my setting. Damn difficult to figure out ship hulls in perspective.

    There're a lot of magical signs and symbols in my world; here are some designs of them. Some look like skin issues or bruises, or leave strong after images, depending on how bad the thing they symbolize.

    Thanks again, I like doing design work aside of illustration, it's very relaxing.

    Landscape concept for my world Genius Loci. Standing stones are sort of important, and I love painting those mounts (they're called vempons).

    Lens flare trials

    I was trying out a few methods to create lens flares without using the dreaded filter. The filter isn't even half bad, but so recognizable.
    It turns out the satin layer effect provides interesting results, by creating a soft stroke around shapes, and the rectangular to polar filter by making rings from gradients.

    Stunning. I mean, what's a planet without a little lens flare action!? Keep it coming!

    Those planets and space scenes look amazing you should consider doing a tutorial on that.

    Thank you!
    Well, these are very sketchy, I could have spend some more hours on details and planet textures. I do plan to create a tutorial on lens flares as I couldn't find any decent ones. As for planets, I found the wonderfully detailed tutorial by Alyn (justalyn.co.uk) so useful I won't make my own.

    Garden ship concept

    This is a concept sketch for an airship idea. Plants gathering lighter-than-air gases lift a living quarters construct that's as light as can be. They can barely be steered and are difficult to maintain, but I wanted to have more than one kind of airship in my setting.
