sorry been playing with my new digital slr so i got for my 21st, back to drawing much more now... here is a quick warm up i did this morning.. bout 20 minutes
Keep going with the environments, because they aren't yet as strong as your characters. Some random environment tips:
Draw from life. Hallways and suburbs are dull, but if you can draw a dull subject with sensitivity, imagine how you'll make the interesting subjects sing!
Use the same mark making in both characters and environments to pull your compositions together.
Treat your environments as if they are characters. They should have as much personality, and should receive as much love from you.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
Perspective 101, Concept Art 101, Games Industry info,Oil Paint info, Acrylic Paint info, my sketchbook.
thanks seed Ill start doing some more enviroments soon... but for now heres a turtle
Cool pics. I think some life drawing would give you more tips on how the light works. your anatomy seems good, but try to do some exercices to understand what's the purpose of the muscles. For exemple, in the HTML guy, the pectoral doesnt follows the arm... which should. The body is a machine and it needs every pieces to work. Besides that, the abstract ones are very good Keep working
forgot my glasses today, trying to work a little on light but its basically a doodle.
did this this morning not very happy with it, very sloppy in places... gonna start a project soon... so i have a common theme on new stuff.
ok came up with some ideas going to work them out along the way here is an enviro i started about an hour ago... i'll eventually but a person or too in here.
comic and more work on that enviroment...
did these throughout the day...
well i finished the first one and started the second. i want to have some finished stuff for a portfolio to try and get some graphic design/illustration work...

finished the drunk guy... im happy with it i now its off in places but i like how it looks
did some more on that picture... I'll start working in the background now
more of an experiment that anything
ok im leaving this for a while now but im fairly happy with it, i want to get the background right so i'll need more practice with that
started a new real life sketchbook... and did this this morning, then scanned it and worked on it in photoshop, i should scan pencils more often...
lots more traditional stuff coming... promise.
The figure drawing above is sweet. I really like the "abstractismicish" bits, they're quite accomplished. Nice sense of movement in them etc, etc.
You based in Dublin? Or elsewhere?
<edit> Never mind the location question, just read your profile. I can be a bit slow occasionally.</edit>
