So uh, new guy here! My name's Junhong, 20 years old, from Singapore. And I'm hoping to use this sketchbook to hone my skills in drawing and design.
I was fortunate enough to go a digital media design school, where they taught drawing, colour theory, 3D, animation, etc. Halfway through I got hooked onto digital painting and concept art all the while doing 3D stuff for school projects (I specialized in game art and design, which focused a lot of 3D and production). So when I graduated my portfolio works were just all over the place - I had digital paintings here and 3D environments there and all sorts of other random stuff.
I still want to do concept art and design. So after graduation I tried to work on some digital paintings.
And well, all I found out was that my skills were seriously lacking and that it was pointless to do all these paintings if I didn't even get the basics of drawing, anatomy, light and colour right. I did some practicing by myself for awhile but I found it was difficult (and boring) doing it alone. Also it was quite hard to judge my work for myself and to see what are the aspects that I need to improve on. So I decided it was time to stop lurking around forums and to get some serious help!
I really want to improve and I hope you guys will be willing to guide me along. And any critiques, tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. I would love to join in the activities you guys have here as well!
I'll do my best to update as often as I can. Though in my current situation, I'm afraid I can only post during the weekends as the rest of the time I'll be away from home.
Aaand so, here's the stuff I did recently. I started with a bunch of studies figure studies from photographs, movies and even game screenshots lol. And also a bunch of 30 second poses. They all came out.. well, not so good. But I'll keep on practicing!
Thank you for your patience!
