    Noldorin's Sketchbook

    Hi everyone

    Ive been coming to these forums for a while now.. a year or so at least. Anyway I have never posted anything here before because after seeing what everyone else can do I get scared off =P. But i suppose I cant keep hiding forever especially if i want work doing this sort of thing so here is some of my stuff :/ (if i can get the images to display XD )

    Im trying to teach myself painting and trying to improve my drawing skills so any comments/crits/tips would be most appreciated.


    This one was inspired by the awsome work by openanewworld
    Noldorin's Sketchbook

    Borrowed the colour scheme from a picture i found.. forget who painted it

    Trying to come up with a character to model.. then i realised the hair looked like dbz and gave up on it :P

    Another character design for a 3d model
    Noldorin's Sketchbook

    This was the concept for my 3d entry into the Blizz Art contest for 2006, he's meant to be azmodan the lord of sin XD

    This might be a lil big but here was the final composition

    This one is from earlier in the year but i still kinda liked it.. drew it after watching the hellgate london cinematic about 12 times

    Well thats all I think is worth showing right now.. I know there are anatomy issues, and problems with character balance and stuff.

    Great work! The toothy fairy rocks and that model kicks azz. What progrom did you use to do your modeling? As far as the toothy fairy your line useage was great and the overall pic has a great texture to it. Keep posting!

    Not a huge update but I came up with this character today.. Going to redraw it tomorrow properly :p

    Sanest- No I wasnt intending on colouring it XD
    Silvestri99- I used 3dsmax 8 to model and the textures were done in photoshop

    And here is the character, I will most likely be modelling this, but the costume is going to change for sure

    This is a side view of the same character.. well .. its meant to be at any rate, was just playing around in ps

    NOW THAT IS ATOOTH FAIRY!!! I also like the pencil sketch at the start of your last post, pretty girl.

    You gotta work on your coloring, colors are generally flat. I really shouldn't talk because I suck just as bad! Keep practicing mate, improvment will come, you definitely have talent.

    Some great character designs here, the Tooth Fairy looks indeed impressive! To me, this portrait suggests some face anatomy studies could do good though... Especially about the skull - the inner corners of the eye sockets should have stronger forms.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the comments all =D

    I've been trying to draw faces for the last couple of days, here are some of the more successful ones. Still cant draw them decently without reference.. I think im becoming too dependant on ref for drawing =O

    I did some serious thinking and have finally come up with the next character for my showreel. The costume still needs a bit more refining but I kinda like the face. Keeping in mind this is going to be a low poly character... like 5000 or 6000 polys. I also did some hand studies which arent as interesting =p

    digital version of the face and another idea for the complete costume
    Noldorin's Sketchbook

    and the hands

    Any comments/crits/suggestions about the character would be greatly appreciated O_o
