    Yo! These are all looking quite good.

    My suggestions are:
    1) Get a drawing tablet. I have a Graphire4 and it is simply amazing - you'll improve three-fold at least with the newfound freedom.
    2) Work light into your scenes, even if you need to find excuses to do so. Use PS's dodge to simulate light - it works brilliantly. Your first pic is pretty much spot-on.
    3)Post more stuff!

    These are real promising - keep it up!

    Yup, thanks demented - you're absolutely right about the light - I believe I have an issue with lighting and contrast - especially in colour pieces, and also with direct (visible) light sources. And the tablet is the first thing I get as soon as I get some money

    In the meantime, here are some pen sketches. Junk'oid and random scribblies.

    Thanks fooxoo ; I saw in your sketchbook you consider yourself "messy" - I have to say I dig your "messy" style!

    Now for a new painted one...

    I don't know, me and a friend had this thing going where we were supposed to do a piece every fortnight or so...the first "brief" was "spaceship". That was 3 months ago - here is my contribution, finally! He gave up on his...

    Yeah!lookin much better!

    I love your pen sketches. Solid, man!

    Your last one also has the light your previous ones needed. Just doublecheck your shadows.

    Good, solid and structural design. Nice stuff!

    hi there!
    demented is right, if you do this with a mouse, then you'll improve really fast with a tablet IMHO.Like the pen sketches (the first one).Nice enviros to (man, i should really try to do some one of these days...)

    hi,
    and welcome!

    I like your first steps in PS already! You should enter the IDoW, EoW & the DSG's
    It will help you to improve fast!
    Cool sketches you should try to render them!

    great line work + keep up the photoshop stuff - you seem to be getting there!! (you'll fall over yerself if/when you get a pen tablet - if your painting is good with a mouse just wait)

    Thanks TheGnoll, Kei-th and setmonkey!

    I will absolutely get myself a tablet soon - I was supposed to have one already but blew the money on one hell of a holiday

    I'm on the roll to enter the IDoW as well - just two assignments to finish up. In the meantime, may I present an excersice I did at a while back at Uni, it's called a "Morph" - basically, a creature morphing into a machine. I don't have the first stage digitized - which is okay cause that was in the beginning of the semester and it looked shite anyway

    Marker, pastel, pencil - the works.

    See you all later, thanks for feedback - TheGnoll when you start on your environments, does that mean I have to start mucking around with anatomy? Oh, the pain!

    Love the pen skecthes. I think they stand out because they have more definition than your other work and are cleaner. With your digital work I think you need to make it crisper and less fussy. But overal you have some solid concepts - just the randering needs a little work. Getting a tablet will make everything so much more easier .
    I don't know if you have started to look at colour theory?. Experimenting with colour and really learning about it could enhance your pieces, keep posting.

    Nice! But the poor mouse !
    hehe

    Nice render! So are you a ID student? And did you learn how to draw like you did in http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h4...sketch1205.jpg in school or not?
    I am going to study ID next year I hope I become this good!

    Yo, oj.

    I love the last stage of the Owl.

    Alcian is right: Your renderd stuff need to be a little more crisp, but that should automatically improve once you get your tablet, so don't worry too much.

    Otherwise, not much to crit on. Solid stuff, man.


    Post more!
