Note: I accidentally broke my first thread by editing the first post like it says not to do in the support forum :(. Sorry for that. Please delete the old one. Thanks! :D
Hi I'm Cameron, and i decided to finally make a CA sketchbook :D. I managed to collect most everything i did since i started last year (my hard-drive died a few months into this, so i lost my early digital stuff).
It was mostly made to share with people on Teamliquid, the competitive Starcraft community, but I thought it makes for a good first sketchbook page :D! If you understand videogames/eSports/competitive sports, you might be able to understand the little life story i wrote on TL ( http://www.teamliquid.net/blogs/viewblog.php?id=397915 ).
Otherwise, I've been working really hard given I've finally found what i want do do in life. So after finishing my B of Science, I decided to learn how to draw and paint to be a concept artist and illustrator like all you cool people. Here's most of 2012
That copy paper is double sided, and that doesn't include 600 over psd's :D.
Please ask me any questions about it! Especially cause I feel really bad about that hard drive crash ( I have 2 levels of redundancy now so i never kill myself again xD). I felt like I made huge leaps in understanding there too, but now the visual record is locked behind a 2000 dollar repair bill :(.
Here's what I did this week. Ill try update the sketchbook once a week with anything I've managed to get done :D.
Randumb sketches just testing imagination/memory, being a major weakpoint of mine. I should've sized them lower they look horrible large :(. Stealing Aaron Beck's ideas for robot ( skul4aface.blogspot.com ). I'm planning to do something with those char designs at the end though. Gonna do a set of 6 designs, cloth, leather, plate fantasy archetypes but 3 realism and 3 stupidly impractical. So currently having fun exploring. Probably gonna have to look at more ref to bring it out from me just dicking around.
Working on some bigger illustrative stuff because I feel like I can do better than what I've done so far. First is a sketch for the CGMA contest ( http://www.cgma2dacademy.com/contest-2013/ ) and the 2nd is a fanart for the anime Aria i've been working on. Still WIP but I think its getting somewhere.
Quick 1hr Richard Schmid study for brushwork and water. Drawing is ass, but my excuse is I wasn't concentrating on it :P
And I went life drawing for the first time! It was fun, but personally, now having been, I think its not as necessary as most people seem to claim. Not that mine are all that spectacular so take what I say as talking out of my ass. Next time though I think i need to get a sketchbook and not just use copy paper on a clipboard...
Thanks for lookin!
