the first image on post 460, i would definately mirror it. the composition reads a lot better from left to right because the left area now is quite uninteresting
awesome stuff. thanks for the updates

These are amazing... love your color/enviro studies!
Really liked seeing how you handled trying to mix in the photos to get some more texture and detail.
You were doing some good stuff earlier this year, but man that couple months you weren't posting must have been tons of work put in. Can't wait to see how your portfolio comes together.
Just have fun.
Hey everyone !!! Thanks for the amazing feedback, I dont really work as much as I should, still has a lot of stuff to do to improve...
Woahh I think its the first time so much people comment in here, I hope my next posts will be worth it.
So I just finished working on a project called Shaun White Skateboarding for Ubisoft where i've been working for almost 9 years now.... spent 3 years on that one.. did some concept art ( a lot of ugly ones ) but i was mostly doing level art and textures.. 3 years that were quite intense, I was lucky to work with an art director that believed i could do more than 3d and boring concrete textures and normal maps... So of course i wont post the earlier stuff, since i was really a total noob at this point and the perspective was all off anyway ( it still is but i believe i improved a bit hehe ) The s tuff is a bit scratchy, most of them were done in like 4-5 hours, they were mostly meant to give a basic idea to level artist or level designer on how to add life to those boxy gameplay layouts. I think i can do better than that now but i still wanted to post them because doing them forced me to adapt a lot and i think i learned a lot by trying and failing at different stuff..
So i guess we can say it was my first job as a concept artist, but i dont quite feel like i could handle to work easily professionally.. Still need to improve that portefolio like crazy and work on the basics, i've been lazy on the studies of anatomy and didnt draw from life as much as i should have.
Anyway , hope you will like the post and please buy the game so i can get a bonus hahaha.

Amazing! If only I could, in some way, steal some of your environment-skills!
Really like run-down rollercoaster pic.
Beautiful work! I enjoy your style and your cityscapes!
Really great enviros man. I want to learn how to simplify the forms and after that to put the details. I see that you are actually working with simple shapes but creating some complicated drawings. Do you have any propositions in mind for studying enviros? I personally just go out at night and quickdrawing some parts of my town. Also, you got some interesting ideas for character design and a fun sb too. Keep up and take care, it's good to see pros around here posting and writing about their thoughts.
