    facosta Sketchbook - Update Nov 11th

    Hi everybody,

    My name is Fernando Acosta and I'm from Colombia, South America. Originally an Electrical Engineer who got tired of that profession, I decided to go and study 3D modeling and Game Art and Design in Vancouver. There I learned all about Concept Art and just fell in love with it. I was also fortunate enough to be able to go and attend the Montreal Workshop, where I made the choice to become a better artist and work on my drawing and painting skills.

    Although I've laid low mostly around the forum, I visit it continually and I hope by starting this thread to become a better member, participate more and more importantly to learn from all the wonderful artists that are part of this forum.

    So here are a couple of sketches I've made for a project I'm helping on. It's mostly a story about North American Native American Indians meet Conan.

    I would really appreciate any comments or criticism you may have on them. If you want you can also take a look at my blog and site for more of my art.

    Thanks for looking and please do say hi

    emba: Hey Petra, thanks again. So more cats for your tattoo will come tomorrow. how's that maze of your coming along?

    28chelseaslater: Hey thanks for the kind words. Actually being an electrical Engineer in Colombia doesn't pay as much as in the rest of the world. Let's say I made the same amount of money in my first job as an average guy does in the States at Mac Donalds....

    Ismail: Hey thanks!! you should post your stuff here as well, share with the rest of us your awesome creature designs!!!!


    Ok so here a small update for you some face paint designs and some illustrations thumbs. what do you guys think?

    Ok,

    First of all I just wanted to say sorry for not posting more often. I was working hard on my portfolio and then on some smaller projects.

    In November of last year I was lucky enough to get picked up by a Canadian games studio. We're already coming to March and I'm still waiting for my visa. I really do hope I get it soon as I have been looking forward to starting my new job as a concept artist for many months now. So please wish me luck!!!!!!

    Anyways, in January I decided to pick up my pencil again and sketch. I had not used a pencil for years, so It was nice coming back to it.

    Here are a couple of pencil sketches. Some were from imagination, some from photo reference and one was a study after Wes trying to learn from his shading technique...Still working on it. Please let me know what you guys think.

    The other images are from some, toy cars, and some were inspired while listening to the Harry Potter Audiobooks. I love drawing small thumbs.

    Please leave your comments and crits. I'm still working on my pencil shading so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi everyone,

    I hope you guys liked the pencil sketches. Here are a couple of digital ones. Some are sketches for fun and one is a color study. My first attempt at one, way too muddy and not very defined, but I'm working on them.

    I still want to finish this rhino dude and take him to zbrush.

    Please leave you comments and crits, I'd really like to know what you guys think or can recommend.

    Thanks for watching,

    Fernando
