    Yuuva's sketchbook -feedback apreciated-

    Hello all, I am a longtime member of Deviantart and I got the idea randomly today to join this site as well, because sharing my art and having discussion with like minds is always a good thing c: I am aiming to be a character concept artist for games so I am trying to lean my art towards that, and I came here to get some feedback on things you like about my drawings and ways I can improve; I am always trying to improve something about my skills, even if it's so small it's unnoticeable. So here's some of my recent concepts that I started doing, the idea is to do 3 characters in one picture, and all greyscale so I can focus on the silhouette and balancing of everything without color to distract me.

    I don't wanna bog down my first post with a lot of images to load so I'll save some other colored works for later. Thanks for checking my corner of the interwebs out, and leave a comment if you'd like!

    Welcome on the forums KyleLindsey! It's great to meet a fellow character designer. You've started with some interesting concepts. The first thing I notice is that all the characters have roughly the same proportions. You may want to vary that a bit. For example I can imagine the middle character of the third row being larger and more muscular than the rest and the first character of the first row being very tall and slender. Variety in the proportions will create contrast between the characters, which in turn will create interest.

    Also when presenting a number of character concepts it's a good idea to number them so they can be easily referred to.

    I'm going to subscribe to see the colored works .

    Haha yes, the first two sets I drew the base body and copypasted it to have 3 side by side, which is something I like to do from time to time. When I make a body from scratch though for each one, I can see what you mean, it would be a good idea to have interesting and more varied body shapes. Also thanks for subscribing, it's much appreciated!

    I know I said I'd put up some colored works, but I couldn't help myself today..

    If it's not obvious by now, I really love to draw females and armor/outfits mainly...But I draw guys too, I swear!

    I know this thread is supposed to be a 'sketchbook' but it seems way too tedious to have multiple threads to keep up with based on if it's sketchy, colored, professionally illustrated etc so I kinda want to put my stuff up in this. I did already do these colored ones from the past few months, but I was just wanting to show you guys my style. From now on, though, this thread will only have my daily sketches and less serious pieces I think

    The chick with the wolf is my favorite. It has a nice design and the overall composition/interaction of the characters is drawn in a very interesting manner. It's OK to post whatever you want. I post both sketches and finished pieces.

    Welcome to CA!
    Yes the wolf chick looks the best, shows well what you can do with lineart and flat coloring. My only concern would be that the female armors are very impractical and seem uncomfortable. Challenge yourself with creating more complex and interesting armor.
    It all began with a crocodile sketch...

    I drew over your last character to point out some issues I was seeing. The pose feels oddly balanced and the head is not fitting properly on the neck. I sketched what I think would be a better solution for the pose.Name:  Dragon Tome - Aeran v2_Feedback.jpg

    Wow thanks for all the replies so quick! Especially you fantasy artist, I appreciate you taking the time to make an overlay drawing like that : ) I can definitely see what you mean now that I look at it closer. Perspective has never been my strong point, so I guess I'll be practicing that more often

    I am trying to literally draw every day, never give myself the time to become complacent and lazy. So expect to see more dailies in here from me.

    Do any of you play Wildstar, out of curiosity? (or any MMO for that matter) I ask because I have been going thru the world and have my real life sketch pad with me and I love to sketch out my character, mounts, NPCs, mobs, that kind of thing. It makes me feel like an explorer or researcher, pretty fun idea if you're bored : )

    Yeah perspective is one of the most important things to master as an artist as it allows you to place objects correctly in space.

    I haven´t really played any games for months. Too busy trying to suck less with art lately hehe. Great work on those beast heads by the way!

Size:  227.7 KBHere's a very very early WIP, the concept is a guy has a magical cape that deflects magic attack or natural elements like fire and whatnot, and is protecting the princess, he's like her personal bodyguard because she's pretty helpless. I usually don't post WIPs anywhere, but I thought it'd be fun to let everyone see WIP shots as time goes on and I work on this.
    This is day 3 of me drawing straight in a row without skipping I know it doesn't seem like much but there was times where I would go for 1 or 2 month stretches easily without picking up my stylus or pencil. I am actually leaving the Airforce currently and am starting at Fullsail in November, so once I get settled in there, I will have a ton of more time to draw and pieces to put up

Size:  374.7 KB Death rides on a pale horse

    this girl is unofficially titled the spellsinger class, at the moment our game team refers to her as 'aoe' because that's her role in battle; area of effect spells. Her pack on her back plugs into her staff and allows for various 'spells' to be used such as damaging hot steam, electrical arcs from the coil, and various things that aren't purely 'magical' but have basis in reality. This is only the 5th of 25 classes I have colored and it's exhausting work >.< but I enjoy delivering a consistent style. The great thing about coloring flat like this is I can always go right over it and make it more shaded if ever need be in the future. Oh and any of these characters that have dark eyes with bright pupils are part of the 'afflicted' group of classes, as opposed to the melee and ranged groups

    Good job on that last character. I like the overall design. I pointed out some aspects that could be improved on:

    Great characters, the designs on some of them are really nice like the "beastmaster v2".

    I realise that some of your work is rendered/coloured in a flat style but some of your other works (ie "Alpha Centauri Outlaw") need a larger range of values and a definite light source(s) to make them more three dimensional.

    Cheers and keep it up
