Purty. Keep going!
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.
wow hey, this looks pretty good. I'll be watching.
Hi gilles, great new site and great new artwork. I was wondering when you were gonna show us some new stuff.
You improved from the last stuff I saw from you.
Love that sketchbook page, post more of those!
i really really love your sketchbook pages. you've got wicked pallette knife skills too
I would suggest some more blending on the last soldier person, I think when you look close, some spots are sloppy, while others have a nice clean finish I was looking for.
Your sketchbook looks great. you'll have to repost that last picture when and if you get some more work done on it, i'd be interested to see how it turns out
There's really great stuff in here I must say. I'm really enjoying those sketchbook pages.
On the last one I'd say get a little more blocky in the sky, use some higher opacity or whatever, to get things clearer, and have more volume.
Keep it up fellow Dutchie
P.S. Hey.. Didn't I see you last summer during the Dutch sketchgroup meeting on the boat?
You said the one with the mech suit was cliche' but who cares! It's important that you draw whats in your head and not to limit yourself. Well you don't have that problem....hehe~
Great GREAT work here. Love the contrast in every piece.
it's a sketchbook....
Ped454> Thanks, I can't remember using the pallette knife is any of the pictures... thanks though
KtCruit 57> Well, that's what happens when I rush stuff... does fit the sketchbook though.
Baum> Working on it!
Noe> Thanks fellow Duthie, I might follow up on your points.
Zoroko> Thank you. I know it isn't such a big deal, sometimes I get frustrated with my own limitations. I always want to be more "original" but I see now that it doesn't matter as long as I enjoy what I'm making.
Renier van der West Hey Thanks, I'm working on finishing that one... stay tuned for the end result!
Here's some recent stuff.
I tried to go for a "future" lumberjacker/Firemarshal.
Awesomeness. The first post is pure greatness. Can't go wrong with skulls and wicked armor designs. More, more!!
Watch out for Piranhas
I think you've got nice technique and your sketches are very cool
Hi Folks, time for a small update.
Two things I made during "loading time breaks" at work. First one is a quickie with pencil and the other one is with a ballpoint pen. They are a bit stiff...
Soon I will an update with more color work.
Piranha Clan> Thanks, don't worry more is on it's way.
Oscen> Thanks mate!
yanino> Thank you.
Great stuff man, very inspiring
I just went through your site.. It has some very cool stuff in it I remember seeing some of the concepts a while ago on the updated SLS site.
I think on some of the character concepts you have put the eyes too high up in the head for the normal proportions, you may have intended the character to have the eyes that high on purpose, but I must say it looks a little odd and I saw it repeated on various character concepts. (But then again, they were mostly from 2005.. so they were pretty old I guess)
I definately dig the big tower concept with the cold green-ish colours.. Very awesome! Oh and your machines and vehicles look very cool. You have a way with the structure and the lines that really impresses me.
Oh and I really liked the dynamic poses of the characters.
Stuff to work on would probably be the more refined digital paintings, they tend to look a bit messy because of working with low opacity brushes and going over stuff a lot. The line stuff looks awesome, but values are quite often not easy to read.
So well.. Good luck on finding yourself a new job.. You do have some nice skills in your advantage ^^
P.S. and I would like to see an update (ofcourse)
dude awesome sketches i love em!
pld: NEED CRITIQUE! But BEWARE your Eyes might BLEED OUT of YOUR eye SOCKETS <---cause I really suck and haven't done shit pld:

I really like your Drawings! Keep it up
Blaze Firestorm, RaistlinTheDark, spudstudios, schlichte and Dolleater87 Thanks for the very kind words, it really gives a boost hearing you guys dig my work!
Noë Thanks for taking the time to go trough my (o;d) stuff. I get what you are saying about the eyes... I never really noticed it till now. I love that you saw my SLS work, but yeah it's getting old now. That low opacity-brush thing is bothering me as well, I hope to get rid of it soon
Kir Nuyts Well, I'm not working at SLS anymore... so I can't really say how things are going there I'm currently looking for a new studio.
Anyway, thanks for the reply!
Jushra Jup, all of it is ballpoint and ink. I try to get more loose in my work and working with ink really keeps it going fast. Cheers.
Teh Gosu No problem dude, hope it was of any use. Goodluck with your work! Cheers.
Okay, time for another update... it's not much but that is because I currently working at a Mod. It's taking most of my free-drawing-time.
The tentacle Pirate has timelapse video with it... but I can't seem to get it rendered correctly... anyway, I might post the video later.
Good to see you updating again ^^ Are you still in the Netherlands or did you already got out of here?
