    Lokklyn has shiny sketches [June 12 update]

    edit: GEEZ, it's almost been a year since my first post. I think I've improved!

    Hi. I'm an animation student attending UMBC. I love painting though, and I need to supplement my school's lack of an illustration program with my own stuff. I think I'd prefer to go into concept art/texturing rather than 3D modeling or animating.. motion graphics is also very appealing to me. But ultimately, I want to be an illustrator of some kind. Animation is just a backup.

    Trying to make the transition from an animeish style to something more universally appealing. I basically can't show most potential employers the stuff I sell at conventions. (if you're curious, my full gallery, anime stuff included, is in my DeviantArt gallery: http://lokklyn.deviantart.com)

    I plan to use this sketchbook to hopefully document my growth, and will upload WIPs and doodles and the like.

    edit: uploaded a thumbnail

    speed paint - 15-20 mins max. i was doing this in class instead of paying attention T_T with a mouse in photoshop. i did a little bit of work when i got home on the head since i'm really bad at doing anything precise with the mouse. there's something about the photoshop low-opacity paintbrush look that i'm not sure how to reproduce in painter.

    Hey Lok, if you are looking to bolster your illustration skills, come try out Concept Art 101. The link is in my sig.

    The work you have posted here is pretty, but it doesn't seem varied enough to suit your needs.

    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.

    oh man, I've been so busy at school. haven't had much time for personal projects.

    uploaded a picture of Qynine, and one of a 3D panorama that I shot and altered.

    even though i should definitely be working on final projects, i wanted to finish a personal project first.

    i saw this weird pattern in the stucco on my wall that looked kind of like a woman's profile with another lady clinging to her neck, so i tried to recreate it. I'm not sure if I should make the tiny lady a little bigger so you can see the detail. she seems kind of out of place, so i'm trying to figure out how to make her look more integrated. suggestions are welcome.

    Awesome faces. Like them all. And this room: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1194651157 Love the style!
    This one is so good: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1194650935

    The last update looks finished. Maybe some more work on the small girl on the side. Her butt/dress could maybe be better somehow. I love the the image anyway.

    Keep on posting!

    I'm not sure if i feel like finishing this one. it's been a pain in the butt, and i don't really like her face anymore, despite the time i've spent on it.

    Finished for Stanley Lau's Pepper Project. Info here: http://artgerm.deviantart.com
    First piece I finished on my new tablet, hooray! I'm happy with it. I should probably get into the habit of using references more often, as this pose was appropriated from a girly magazine advertisement. :d
    I'm hoping to draw more than just pretty ladies.. seems like every time i start to sketch, that's what i want to create.
