Just trying to figure out how to post here and stuff.
This was an attempt at concept for a vehicle that picks up cages/traps from a region with an abundance of carnivorous animals.
The amazing frog monster.
an electric stun cannon
a japanese style gazebo with garden in center - an environment building concept

not bad stuff you've got here. Its evident you need to do a lot more work on anatomy, but your structual stuff is quite nice. Looks like the heart of an architect.
My work: [link]
A new character design/modelsheet
Here I was designing a futuristic cyborg "Samura" who was a gang member, got drafted in the army and then had post combat surgery.
The idea was to have a turnaround, construction view, facial expressions, poses, and a colored pose.
some problems with image-upload.net

Thas alot of anatomical studies! Are you actually going to remember any of that?
The character design sheets at the bottom make me think: Yes.
I think doing stuff like this is really helping you....
I quite like your animal anatomy stuff. As for the alien, the resemblance to ET might be a bit too obvious. I would rework it's chin, it's not too attractive. A bit more square and less protruding, like the first drawing on the 4rd row.
Here are some life drawings. Getting a good range of value seems to be difficult here. Like I'm just doing a monotone range instead of accenting with deep darks against a bright light.
Hi softocean, very solid work in your SB,I see you study so hard, a good way for accive great result. For the skin tones I answer you in my thread.
Keep it up
a lot of stuff, you are really busy man!
i think sometimes you should have a more evident light source.
keep it up!
I like some of the most recent sketches, especially the ones on the bus. Very humerous, and lively with the colors. Seems like you do well with groups of people. Also, some great scenery and landscapes. Are those all places you've been, or from your mind?
Must of the background studies were from places I went, the other concept stuff was from my head. I find that I'm having trouble trying to get the same level of detail and perspective accuracy when I draw from imagingation. So maybe the solution is to use a mix of imagination and reference?
Anyways, here's some sequential art sketches from a short story I was thinking of:
Basically a government official makes some demmands of a local farming village, and our hero volunteers to
journey to the capital on behalf of the village.

I really like your anatomy studies and environments, especially the most recent one. The light through the orange trees has lots of potential to be beautiful. It seems different from most of your other color schemes which look a little bland and lifeless to me. Try working in more variation (like this one, which was very good - http://www.jerryartist.com/sketches/...ackground4.jpg).
You do have nice work, I love your scene renderings.
I agree that, while readable, your colored works could go much farther with the right contrast and drama.
the level of improvement from the top of this page to the bottom is really evident kep hacking away at it (the anat still seems to be your weakest point but its quickly improving) and thanks for your comments
ooops double post
