A quick little landscape painting for class. Fun to mess around with mood and color
wow nice stuff really see a lot of improvement here
Every critique helps me to get on step closer towards my dream so feel free to
Zauselbart: Thank you! These head studies are great for experimenting with my brush work and mark making.
Mr.Pryminista: Thanks man! I'm glad you dig the colors, it's something I've struggled with in the past.
Here are some thumbs for my next environment. Left column are studies of other thumbs, mostly Jama's. Other two columns are me reworking the comps and integrating what I learned from the study.
the head studies: thumbs up!
lionheartGFX: Thank you! I'm actually revisiting the last environment to repaint a bunch of the city. I got some feedback on how to really push it. So I'll be posting the new version soon.
Got another environment on the way as well as a cover illustration. For now here are some studies for the illustration.
love that last one! drapery is a subject you could work a bit on, just a suggestion, read on the anatomy of the folds and stuff like that! hope to see alot more!
your environments are improving fast! may i ask what that "tonalist" thing is?
Xcarbon: Thanks! I'll keep pushing
PontusEuxinus: Thanks! Tonalism is basically keeping your values closer together through the piece and focusing on less of a high contrast image. Here is a link for more info. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonalism
Here are some concepts that I did last year, but haven't been able to post them until now. It was a class project that we pitched to Valve for their game Team Fortress 2. We all had to design a main weapon, a secondary weapon, and a vanity item.
Well TAD has come to an end for me. It has been a crazy 2.5 years and I can't believe it is all over. It went so fast. I want to thank all the teachers, mentors, and community members that helped to push me to this point. I will continue to work hard to improve and see how far I can go.
As a New Year starts one of my main goals is to become a stronger designer. So to practice this I will be doing 30 - 90 minute lunch sketches between freelance work. I will be trying to push my lighting, forms, composition, design, and mood. So here it goes.
