Constructive criticism is always welcome. Please be as straight forward as necessary. Thanks for helping.
LOL! Fun doodles you’ve got here.
What you’ve posted so far is going off in about half a dozen directions. It might be helpful in getting critiques for your sketchbook if you state a specific goal here, and then work towards that goal.
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.
Nice illustrations. The design on the car is amazing. I don't have any crit to give though!
these are great! more sketch pages! I know you have more, you seem like one of those kids who is always drawing, so show us!
Time to reanimate this thread. Just for kicks and posting. Oh and maybe a crit or two, if anyone feels inclined. Be harsh if you must.
Here two images of a customized fingerboard and accompanying packaging design.
Then two doodle pages the first is ink and ginger-pumpkin soup.

cool inks, really like the lynx and the mobsters. A little hard to tell whats going on in the last one, but well executed none the less. Keep it up!
Thanks, Goog. The last one shows a whale stuck in between tree trunks. It's actually the first time I've ever done a litho. That's mainly the reason behind the somewhat experimental and abstract looks of it.
More stuff. Doodles done during work or idle time. I'm having lots of fun lately putting blotches of color on the pages and then trying to figure out what it could be. The previously shown yellow (ginger-pumpkin soup) fishes, the pink (water on post-it notes) dog and the brown (coffee) dog all came to live this way. I'm also happy that I seem to be making some progress with inking and line-art in that regard. Using thicker brush strokes for shadows and the thinner ones for light...

WOW! This stuff is insane! (In a good way) I dig the unique style you got going
totally diggin the coffe pages. the litho looks nice, too - when will you finish it?
keep it comin'.
Thanks for the words. Jeff, I don't when the litho will be finished but I hope some time soon. The comic is finished and hopefully on wednesday I can't pick up working on that one again.
Here the various stages of the comic I made today and yesterday for the currently running Fumetto Festival competition. The theme this year is "future". I am sorry for the shitty picture at the end but I didn't have anymore time left for scanning.
colored pencil drawing (three stages: yellow (rough) > green (medium) > blue (fine tuning))
final inked page
Some whimsical character doodles with a project in mind where I need to do the character design, animation and interface design for a cellphone game.
And the front and back of a portfolio book which at the same serves as an explanation why I want to study in Japan (for a semester).
Some more concept designs for the previously mentioned cellphone game. After a bit of thinking and doodling I have finally come up with a "suitable" story outline for the whole game.
Since this is a network game where multiple cellphones join to create one I needed to come up with something that would pick up on that particular aspect. The basic idea of the programming is something along the line of these games you play on kids birthday parties where all gather around a circle of chairs whereas the number of kids outnumber the chairs by one (here in Germany this game is called "Journey to Jerusalem" or sometimes a bit more simple "Chair Dance") . Then everybody starts moving around the chairs and as soon as the music is stopped the goal is to catch a chair for sitting. Of course one of the kids won't get one and is thus out of the game. After that the number of chairs is reduced by one again. Here in Germany this game is called "Journey to Jerusalem" or sometimes a bit more simple "Chair Dance".
The cellphone variant works similarly. After every participant has joined the game the number of players will be reduced after every round until only one remains. My idea for the *cough* storyline *cough* is a bunch of cute alien-cyborg-pirates binge-drinking until the last man or woman remains conscious. The fun part would be to play this in reality at your local pub with the outcome probably being negative reciprocal (meaning that the longer you remain in the game the more you run the risk of actually disappearing under the table at first).
Following are a few sketches, animatic and other experiments to get a feeling for the looks and everything. In the end there will be two male and two female characters to choose as avatars.
A few thumbnails "storyboardlike"
Animatic (click to DL and watch)
drinking animation (yes, it will remains this "retro lazy-ass" limited)
character design ideation
And lastly because I couldn't get enough another coffee blotch exploitation. I think I'm going to resize, blow-up and the lithographically print that priate grrrl.
Your coffee blotch exploitations are the best things I've seen today. Its forcing me to grab my inks and try it myself.
