Spring- Thanks for stopping by, not sure what you mean by geometric.
Practicing some detailing. I find it very difficult to add to a piece's quality just in adding detail.
That last ones really cool and I really want to see the one in post 93 finished, love the angle and design of it. Really cool sketchbook.
my sketchbook- http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...=235313&page=3
This sketchbook really resonates with me. It's the most inspired i've been from a sketchbook here.
Wow. To whoever rated me up, thank you very much. It has been a goal of mine since I joined the site nearly 5 years ago to hit 5 stars, and it was the only real reason I made a new sketchbook since I didn't believe I could pull my old one up. I am not convinced I am at that level yet, but this is a large encouragement.
They have been terrible as of late. I recently finished my latest moleskin and after looking through it I was hugely disappointed. I don't really know what's happened, but I am pretty determined to revert it. The past few days I have been going back through and erasing pages and redrawing them. I intend to continue doing this until I feel it is presentable. Also I can't afford another moleskin at the moment so this fixes two problems for the time being.
Upon some excellent council I have received from you guys, I have really tried mixing up my process recently. It has been pretty fun and I look forward to seeing where it goes. I have been happy with most of my work but there have been more than a few that I have scrapped completely. I am going to keep trying new things until something catches me so completely I cant help but explore it further.
That is all.
will123will- Thanks man the vamp is way more cartoony than I usually go, but it was fast and a lot of fun. I'll honor your request and take a look at it.
Jarrad- Thanks man, but you're too kind. Any mix of DanielC, aplenfleger or, bumskee's sketchbooks will give you chills.
that mermaid concept is absolutely smashing!
heres some refs which might help, i know a lot of people here are so practiced that can conjour the lighting and stuff from scratch, which i find awe inspiring, but i have to go to references to get the look i need
to get that wibbly wobbly water surface effect theres a real good set of filters in photoshop called Distort that can do that for you; if you cut the bit you want to be above the water, squash it horizontally, perform the filter (youll need to try it a few times to tune the settings) then stretch it out again horizontally, that gives a nice look.. heres an old old sketch where i used it

First digital still life, felt pretty weird. Spent maybe 45 min to an hour on it. Still trying new painting techniques to get faster.
Velocity Kendall- It's honor to have you post in here, I am a huge fan of your work. After messing around with the distortion filter, I am definitely going to use it. Your advice has been very helpful.
AdrianNagorski- Thanks for commenting, I'll keep working on that penmanship.

i like your drawings man! there pretty awesome!
Follow this link is my sketchbook and i hope you can help me improve my drawings by critiquing me and giving me advice!( http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...=1#post3423938 ).
oh in i would be really grateful if you have any info on Books/ Websites/ and DVDs that can improve my art.
I would like you to share with me some artist that you guys know so i can get some inspiration from them as well!
Just put the links when you reply me on my sketchbook!
some for the road, the mural-ish one is just a collection of paintings I combined into some sort of composition study.
Still trying to get faster.
Been working a bit on 3D stuff, Ill share soon.
D'artist-Thanks man, hope to see you get your sketchbook worked out.

Still trying new techniques, this one was super quick and has better separation of forms than most of my quick ones. Will finish.
Also, I am thinking about starting to live stream? I doubt very many would like to watch me work but I do want to network with more artists. Any opinions on the matter would be appreciated.
Phat- Thanks man and that is great to hear, I have been pushing color so hard lately. I used to sit around in monochrome for everything.
asa- Thanks for your continual support asa
xbert- Thanks for stopping by xbert. My integration of filters is horrific, I have just been pushing efficiency lately and I feel like filters have potential I just need to be much more subtle. And honestly, I feel that most images are approved with at least some form of chromatic abberation. It just looks so dang cool.
Thanks for stopping by my SB!
you've got fantastic concepts here, i particularly like the SB work in #103.
I think the only crit i can offer is that a few of your faces seem to lean oddly. They can't be perfectly symmetrical obviously and its not really noticeable unless you're looking at images for awhile but maybe its something you could look into more? Hope it helps
