    Post KNīs Sketchbook /// draw it up

    ///////////// as you might know - newer stuff on later pages /////////////

    Hello everybody,

    this is my first conceptart-post.
    Very interesting stuff whole over the forum.
    Maybe some of you can critisize my
    environment-sketches down there. Iīm not sure
    how to come out of these sketchy thumbnails
    to an amazing finished illustration

    I think with these kind of sketches you should
    check out composition and proportions of the entire
    format you are sketching on - Iīve tried to
    fix some nice compositions in my sketches but
    look by yourself.

    greetings
    Kristo Novo

    .

    nice stuff here.
    looks like the first and second imagres are your strongest. Good use of perspective.
    in the other images, there seems to be a need for line weight (thickness) to help bring attention to certain parts of the image. If it is all the same weight, it is harder to perceive depth. (4th image)
    Maybe select one of the thumbnails to add color/shading?

    I colorised the second sketch in a quick potoshop session.
    I think it helps to get more depth into picture.

    But keep on critisizing - thx for your attention

    Nice perspective there!
    I must agree first two were best in first post,in the third one i think those two columns look like they are little steep (erm dunno about my english)

    Like the colored version too tought i sorta like the b/w one better...dont know why.

    Good start on coloring. I recommend that you pay careful attention to value when depicting light and shadow. The building on the lower left is casting shadow well, but the other buildings are not? Also, you may want to accentuate lighting on the faces of the buildings in the upper right which are facing the sun. Also, experiment with brushes to let them do the work of detailing the textures for you. Well, thats my 2 cents.

    I like the second image a lot. The cracks and detailing really give believability to the scene. Perhaps work on the value range for it to develop the piece further I suggest that you use pure black and pure white sparingly as you develop it.

    Welcome aboard!! You have awesome sense of perspective and compostion! Your artistic vision is strong.
    Man I can't wait to see these as full color paintings. I usually add small fiqure shapes in the composition to help with the feeling of scale.
    Beatiful work. Love to see more. Are you going to take any of the other sketches to paintings?

    Hello again,
    long time since Iīve added some new stuff.
    Here I painted digitaly a kind of outer space/planet scenery.
    I think I could go on working on this picture to add more
    detail but what do you say?

    Yes, could use a little more work. Otherwise, I have to say, it's good to see how you are mastering different points of perspective.

    I love the post 17. for me, works better without spaceships, or with little ones. these environements are really good man. very technic eye you got, mixed with a great tecnique, with many fluency.

    To crit, just can say.. work in your lacks.. as drawing figures.. just need a bit or more work, youre in the right way.

    By the time, I guess some star will appear over there

    Hey man- I love your quick sketches. They're great!



    I think your digital painting needs practice... here's a suggestion on how to very quickly add some color to those sketches- mainly with gradients.. dont muck up the clean fresh sketches with too much brushy junk- here's an example I painted over your pic

    Ragnar X: realy thank you for taken your time to show me that coloring example.
    i think i get the idea with this gradient like coloring... iīm realy overwhelmed about it... helps a lot
    i have to try this for myself... fix dark and bright composition

    by the way gw concept artwork for me is one of the best in gameindustry
    iīm very thankful for your post!
