A sketchbook update with limited time in the lrc. These are a bit old now but here is my offering.
you have nice lines!
I like the african guy! keep it up, and you'll have some USEFUL crits in no time!
Your first post is without references, hot damn I would like to see what you can do with references. The african guy well he doesn't really have any african features but he is still cool. I like the skeleton and the pencil pages the most.
Keep on keepn on
Assuming I did this right...

And the new... http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=51867
Hey fox thanks man, i didnt really notice her peaking out there to tell you the truth. I'll see you in class tommorow, i should really be working on the project now dammit.
sevans - cheers, that page is definitely the busiest but looking back on it now its so flat i really need to stop being lazy and render more.
ODT - thanks for dropping by, i didnt really have in mind to go on an african theme i just wanted a sort of tribal look, still i guess it worked. Me stop now.
sly - thanks a lot, i dont have access to any life models at the moment so there wont be any live ref coming by any time soon and normal people move to fast damnit! I should probably say i drew the hands from life i forgot to mention. I dunno why eveybody assumes he's african, hes from the easter islands if you dont mind!
^-^ and just for you ive got some reference pages coming up
first page ref from http://www.fineart.sk
some with some without (you can probably guess)
2 of my flatmate and a skull
A drawing with a certain fox flavour
And Ive been doing a sort of daily doodle topic with cartoonfox and these are my results, i think weve had 'gaping jaw', 'lava, and futuristic transport.
Btw i cant do enviroments.
Thankyou and goodnight.
dunefish - thanks man, i hadnt noticed the lack of feet to be honest, i guess i never really rated them as important but ill try to put some more effort into creating whole bodies, feet n all.
Straight to the update, some stuff i did today in class and some the night before worried that my lacking any work might give the tutors grounds to dislike me.
Its all project work on the making and breaking of icons and im breaking down death as an icon (yeah i know it sounds weird.) Without delay....
oh yeah dont ask because i have no idea why they came out so small, i didnt change the settings and i can be bothered to do it again. oh once again no ref
Fun discovering features on the photocopier with fox

Cartoonfox - thanks man, its gonna be tough getting the roughs done by tuesday, what are you doing from breaking down an icon again?
Right first up some uni project, these are just some of my sketchbook pages from our last brief on consumerism. Apparently someone blowing their brains out with a 9mm is too brutal a way to represent the effect of consumerism on people, who knew?!
Oh and if there are any budding/wannabe concept artists out there that are studying illustration and have experience in making the briefs even a bit relevant please share your experience...
i went off on a bit of a gaskmask fetish too try and represent an artificial intake but i was told it was off the mark but i dont care because it looks cool
Next up some pages from my personal sketchbook, havent done much lately in it so these are a month or so old.
Cartoonfox brought round a scott robertson dvd the other day (thankyou ^-^ ) and watched 30mins of it and now i can draw ships! Well sort of, well better than i could before. I think some of the designs are ripped from my subconcious but ill sort that later.

DUDE i dont care what you say you stupid nose running flu carrying retard, THIS fucking rocks my socks!!!!
your head is just too full of mukus and shiot to realise!! ^_^ check in a few days when your well again and you'll see im right
more man. more
This update to celebrate m very first wacom, thanks go out to amazon.co.uk for getting the prices wrong so i get it cheaper and many thanks to cartoonfox who noticed and told me.
my very first computer doodle, done in the crappy version of painter that you get with the tablet
Still developing ship technique, I've got quite a few things that i want to try out after some good advice.
I might have a stab at colouring this some time.
20 min sketch that i might turn into a full piece.
A quick self portrait, likeness isnt bad.
expect amateur painter updates soon.
A limited success with photoshop, a small step from the last one but id like to think that is an improvement, its still a wip so any comments advice etc for laying down colour and refining design would be appreciated.
Just an update on the droid wip, hes not great but i feel like im learning as i go.
I'll scan some more sketchbook stuff when i get the time.
The final state of my first digital paint, im sick of seeing it now so on to bigger and better things, I feel like its helped me get to grips with the program and tablet and now to have a go at something a bit harder.
Just a quick sketch experimenting with paper textures feels like cheating but who cares. I'll try and get to the library sometime soon so that i can scan some of my work before i go home. Anyway here you go...
destroyed with the photobucket resize.
ooo - dude there is some really nice pages in here!
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v392/alx_b/ill1.jpg - is sweet.
great consistent style, nice choice of media.
Update this SketchBizzle dawwwg
It was great to look at your mini book on thursday. The design/composition of the pages is awesome, the tipex is great!!.. Would be cool to see you take on some more finished tonal pieces, maybe on larger paper ... Your faces in profile are particularly good... I was about to say you didnt post some of the stuff I saw, but I see the last time you updated was dec 15th! Keep this book alive!!
*Help a CA artist! Visit the Constructive Critique section! *
leran-thanks very much, i cant believe that you found my book to be honest i thought that this thread had sunk to the depths, it was cool meeting you hope i see you at another meet sometime soon (dont go getting too good!) hope we didnt put you off with all the getting lost fun
eriboss - cheers man, ive left this thread alone for too long. I hate that thing now i just feel like i could do it so much better now and that was a couple of months ago.
yadam - funny you should say that the first page in my new sketchbook is, well you can see it below, did it in my boring friday lecture, rendering an a4page with 0.7 mechanical was not fun after a while
Right ive been away from ca for too long and since i last posted i have finished a sketchbook and started an new one. So heres the stuff from the new one.
I really need to get my values down, this was done because i was inspired by sketchlings little thumbnail studies so i did one and liked it and did a blown up version.
The value studies start to take hold now, and dont tell me i know i know i was thinking about ghost in the shell at the time.
Im starting to get serious with this digital painting stuff!
Well there we go, not much but its an improvement.
Theres more in the way of paintings n shit but i cant be bothered to put it on right now maybe tommorow, or next year.
Right because my painting sucks ive concentrated on value for a bit, and then i will move onto colour. I only had one orange left for a still life so i took a couple of things from my flatmates.
I really dont think that watercolours are my medium, they are to damn hard. So rigid if you want to be representational.
and a couple of digitals, eugh
this guy can be say whatever you want but in my head its 'WTF?! IS THAT?!'
I love your style and use of many different mediums. The inking stuff is amazing, and I love how you work with digital paints too. Keep posting this awesome stuff.
hey dude, if you don't start updating more, ima spen that £100 myself... on pizza. oh yes that's right. none for you either!
: ] nice stuff man, although i've seen it all anyway. except that last peice with the weird flying thing. you should do more of them. you don't do enough creatures! :p
anyway,... yeah, post more.
keep it up
Frog - cheers man
Bagder - thanks, hope to see you at one of the uk meets sometime
cartoonfox - actually they are a bit lacking at the moment, too many 'robots' as allie says, plus ive been getting into the environments more lately
Just a figure study and 2 gestures from ref
Without ref, breasts are to high on a couple, need to address that
need to loosen up a bit with these
thats all for now folks
A quick still life that i did as a colour study, its a bit flat and the shadows need to be deeper but overall its not too bad
im shit at drawing rocks and stone soooo....
I dont know what happened with the resize but i can be bothered to do it again
and there we go.
Cold : thanks man, i might do a better droid paint if i find the time
A couple of papers that i forgot about,
i really need to stop finding ways round my weakness' and tackle them properly, this guys body was hard so i gave him a big ol coat
