You should be looking at page 2, not my old stuff.

Wow, I can't believe nobody has commented on these!
I love the environments and the creatures/mechs you've got going on, and those planes are very nice (Well, better than what I could do). I particularly like the 4th one you posted.
IMO It's better to have a sketchbook and doing art than it is to have a social life. I might be biased since I don't have one myself but I think it's stupid just to talk for talking's sake.
It's been almost 2 weeks since i started this. I had a lot to do (school) and less time to draw. Nonetheless I have some pics. It's not much though
After days doodling on the computer, I finally saw the light. This is the only drawing that's actually worth posting for. I worked on that drawing this entire day.
drd: Thanks for the comments! I know I can be a bit of a drag sometimes.

Due to schoolexams, I wasn't able to make some free time and upload stuff. Thank god I had a week off to get some rest. During that week I wasnt completely lazy so I did some drawing. I must say I've making progress.
A train, a city, blue water, blue sky. boring. Took me 3 hours to complete.
Yeah, finally action. Some guy gets attacked by a plasmashooting helicopter from the future! Took me 9 hours.
Concept art for a comic I plan to draw in the (not so very) near future. 4 hours to complete.
Do you have good tips for me plz reply!!!
Awesome concepts dude. But the hand with the gun doesn't look right. Bit of a foreshortening problem there.
I like that pencil sketch with the palm trees and the guy flying in the air haha. Keep it up.
Yeah, Thanks for noticing. I missed that part I guess.
I fixed the arm a little bit
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I graduated from highschool so I can study Industrial Design at the Technological University of Eindhoven. The bad news is that I will have to spend all my time studying, and there will be no time for fun drawing.
Some quick sketches:
Yeah, I know he looks like Predator
Some scans are a bit blurry. That's because my scanner is dying.
Here is my recent photoshop work.
A nice jet.
I stopped working on this one because I got bored.
The leftovers of the once so might Team2 Army flies from planet to planet to stay out of the hands of the newly risen Autonomous Empire. (back when I was 10 years I designed a huge spacefleet I called team2. I drew over 100 individual spaceships)
That's all folks!
Wow, your digital stuff is coming along great! Not much to say about them... just keep at it. As far as the pencils... nice concepts... it looks like you are taking a really long time for each drawing. Coming from another Industrial Design student, ID will break you of that habit. Also they will have you work on your linework... start drawing with a felt tip pen. Try making one line instead of a bunch of hairy scratches. Take a blank sheet of paper and practice drawing straight lines... fill the page with as many as you can and as close to each other as possible... it will be hard at first but you will get the hang of it...
keep it up... check out this forum on core77... try to practice drawing in this type of ID style... http://boards.core77.com/viewtopic.php?t=3595 ... fast lines and try to whip out as many ideas as you possibly can in the shortest amount of time...
And if you think that you wont have time to draw think again! That is all I do really... especially while you have drawing classes... feel free to pm me or post in my SB if you have any questions!...
good luck and draw draw draw!
Thanks, I know that my linework is a bit sketchy. I'll try to work on it. And maybe I exagurated a bit on the part I won't be doing much fun drawing!
Tomorrow I'll go on a 4 week holiday (in holland the summer holiday is 6 weeks!) to Italy. I will draw as much as I can, so prepare for a huge art dump in 4 weeks. Ofcourse there wont be any photoshop work as my computer wont come along with me on holiday.
See you all in 4 weeks!!!!!

whoa, after 4 weeks i'm finally back. Italy was great, but on the day we arrived at the gardalake all hell broke loose. A storm ripped our tent apart, but luckely we had a spare tent with us. the rest of the time the weather was good with temperatures way above 35 celsius. Nonetheless I still managed to draw some great pencil work. I'm still scanning them at this moment but I've also painted something I wanted to show you first.
Scans of my pencil work will arive soon!
And here they are, the first batch of pencil work I did during my holiday.
I just had an intro week at the University of Eindhoven. It was awesome. I defenitly made the right choice of studying ID here. But if you thought that I would draw a lot during the first week... then you're completely wrong! I didnt draw a single piece. The whole idea behind an intro week is getting to now your group and the campus. That includes partying (getting loaded) until 7 AM.
But now I'm back to the drawing table (but my hands are still shaky)
Thanks for the post. I dig your air vehicles, they're quite tight. That mech is kick ass too. Gotta love the mech's.
hi all, its been quite a while since I updated my sketchbook. Not that I was lazy or anything, but university is taking all of my time. We've been givin the task to design a navigation device for elderly. I'm not going to bore you with the details, but i'll show you a drawing I managed to draw in my spare time. I'm really proud of that car.
Concerning my photoshop paintings, it's on hold until I've finished my first half year here at the university of Eindhoven.
ManillaGurilla: Thanks man, really apreciate that. The drawings will keep coming, but it will just take a little longer...
Slow but steady I keep on going. So a small update.
Background is a bit messy:
Not much to say about except that I did within 20 minutes.(that's about the total free time I have every day after college )
I'm currently having a break and my drawing fingers are starting to itch so I'll post very soon...
I've been extremely busy lately. I was rounding up my project with the task of designing a navigation device for elderly. Out of 8 groups our group was considered by far the best design so that was quite a pleasant surprise. So now I've got the time to upload some stuff. First the final design of our navigation device for elderly:
I'll explain a little bit about the concept:
We came up with the requirement of getting elderly people outside of their homes and participate in activities. This visual adress book will be placed in the living room of the user. When it's inactive the screen will act as a digital photoframe, displaying either pictures taken by the user or "advertisements" that show pictures of locations and activities. Because the product does not act as a real navigation device itself it is used as a new way of interacting with your navigation device. For instance a TomTom is inserted in the device in the slot on the left side. Each picture in your visual adress book is connected to an adress. We choose pictures as an alternative because it invites elderly to go to that person or location. When a picture is selected the visual adress book will store that data in the TomTom. Before you take the TomTom out of the device you will be shown a preview of the trip (e.g. points of interest, dangerous intersections) to increase the driver's confidence.
There's a lot more to tell about the device but that would take several pages of text .
Because of some work I did for a friend's presentation (for free, since I'm not a professional yet) I received from him a €10 coupon to a local art store. I spend it all on four water-proof fine-liners with 0.1, 0.5, 0.8 and 2mm thickness. It was a good choice for inking pencil drawings. So here are my first tries:
Left half is not finished yet, but it looks pretty cewl.
Oh, before I forget. I'm saving for a WACOM tablet. Not sure what kind of tablet I'm buying. Something like A5 size. The reason is that my Trust tablet SUCKS. really, it stinks so badly even Sparth wouldn't get a decent painting with it. I'm not saying that because I just paint badly and buying a WACOM tablet will give you magical superpowers. I will give two examples of the Trust tablet evilness: 1. trying to draw a straight line will result in a nice wave pattern. 2. holding the pen perfectly still will result in a cursor shaking around like it has Parkinson. So here's a message to everybody who thinks $80 is a good buy for an A4 sized tablet. It's NOT! Just don't trust Trust. (woah, that was cliché)
With much love(and hate),
I'm really in a drawing mood today.
Woooot. I've seen the light.
Defenitly going to do paintjob on this one. It's got way to much energy to be left greyscale.
To come back on the thing I mentioned in an earlier post, that I did something for a friend's presentation. I found it! I needed to design some sort of removeable cover for the TomTom One, a navigation device. I thought of someting flexible, like they have for iPods. My friend was very enthousiastic about it and said afterwards it helped his presentation a lot.
That's it for today. Oh yeah, I would really like some comments now. I just need some advice before actually profiling myself as a professional artist.(And make money) That would be much appreciated.
Thank you, Dan, for your reply. I've used Rhinoceros for the modeling and 3dsmax for texturing and rendering.
In our project it wasn't allowed to use any 3D computer models to show as a deliverable, so this image was only meant to be on the front page for our report. So it was rendered in black and white so it could easily be recolored. I leaved the shininess away on purpose. Elderly people are just not interested in bling-bling. But you're right, it does make it dull.
hey mate, being an industrial design student myself(just finished my major project!) , i can see the steps ur taking to improve. one thing i gotta say is, leave ur linework in the drawings. especially for the car drawings. this will help define the perspective a lot more, its way off one some of those pics.
Try to get a set up ellipse templates for the wheels or do the ellipse in a square drawing trick. ellipses and circles are some of the hardest things to draw in perspective, but its one of the first things we pick up as being faulty about a drawing because we see them everywhere in life
anyway, keep it up mate.
wow nice sb dude, i like your vehicles and industrial stuff. you're studying industrial design?
good luck with your sketchbook. i would recommend some perspective and form studies, because i see a lack of knowledge about them in some of your sketches. other sketches are really good on other hand so keep it up.
wow i love your cars and i think the
future mercedes is the best
feel free to leave me some crits
There's lots of exciting angles in your stuff, and that jet one suggests to me that you've got the potential to churn out some really kick-ass stuff in the future. Work more on learning about values, the way materials reflect light, etc, and I think you'll be fine. Keep it up!
I'm in a especially good mood today. I got a wacom bamboo fun medium tablet yesterday. I could write huge list with things that are awsome of it. I immediatly started painting again. After some doodles I moved on to the bigger work. Here's a small WIP:
I really don't feel like explaining things right now *yawn*.
some very cool stuff in here, love some of your future environments and vehicles. Really busy and interesting, showing real progression too. I reckon you'd benefit from concentrating on your figures for a bit, gestures and poses that kinda thing.
I look forward to seeing more of your stuff, let's see some cool, sharp, rendered up work too!
I'm asking a lot I know :-D
You should really take up life drawing. I was really brought in by your recent futuristic sketches then kind of tilted my head in confusion when I saw the soldier. You've done really well when drawing structures and vehicles, but when it comes to organics you need to develop your understanding of how the muscles work and how to make them look more casual and less rigid. Keep it up.
I dont know if you'll agree completely with me but I have a few suggestions - your scenes are cool and have great intent, but they might not have the impact you are aiming for. Do you do several thumbnails before you spend time drawing them??
I would say keep drawing specifics also and really focus on one area for a while and you might notive even more improvement...I think drawing figures like suggested above will make the characters in your scenes have more impact!
