I've been on this board for maybe less then 2-3 weeks, but ive known about it for more than 7 months by now.. I've always enjoyed browsing through all the wonderful artworks that are here.. always a great sight to see. I am one of those artist that i see often here post saying, 'I just got my courage to post here'.. thats basically me. Anyways, im 18, i am all self taught. I have always been drawing here and there, but not until August of 2002 did i get really involved in art. The 'gate' artist that got me really intrested was Luis Royo. After that i got into more fantasy artists and classical painters. As time went by i got into Concept artists and viewed their amazing work.. and right then and there i knew that i wanted this to be my future. Doing conceptual work for games/movies.. basically work in the industry. I always loved the idea of having my ideas/visions concepts put into movies and games..
ever since i was at the amazing San Fran ConceptArt workshop i felt so jealous of other peoples sketchbooks.. so i decided instead of sketching here and there, i will sketch more often. I would also like to thank foster and JP for opening my eyes that SVA might be a great choice for me.. and just stay in the East coast.. at least for now. Anyhow, I noticed how far many people have progressed with their sketchbooks. Truly wonderful work. I might as well just sketch and sketch more before moving onto the digital and painting in general aspect. Gotta get everything in order...
Sadly i only have 1 day a week (mondays) of life drawing classes.. so right now im gonna get everything together of what i've been doing for the past maybe.. 5 days? (i missed the this weeks class because my friends car was unusable at the time).
By the way, i know the negative white space is a tad annoying.. but im starting to get looser more confident with my drawings, so you'll see that less and less I'll try to update this as frequestly as possible to see how i progress myself.. Always good to see how far you go along.. hm i also noticed the scanned versions look a tad worse then the originals..
Anyways enought talk. (These arnt in any order.. i forgot to number it.. , i used Vellum paper & mechanic pencil.. love vellum.. )
I put my older works here so it doesnt load as much when i update
Hm.. anyone got any tips or suggestions how i could make the scanned versions look a tad better? all i do is resize it from 300 DPI 8.5/11 in to 1024 res and do a auto contrast to make the lines pop up.. thats about it.
Also: check out the work im doing for my high school year book:
pic 1 - still not done.. im tryin to pick up Dan Milligan's 'smooth/loose' b&w style.. didnt work out :p
pic 2 - done 2/3 months ago.. supposed to be the 'progression/evolution' of the high school students in my school.
ANYWAYS (final anyways for now) hope you enjoyed looking at my 'notice' sketches.. hopefully i move on nicely as time goes on..
ill keep you posted
