Hey,

I've decided to start sketchbook to seek for advice and learn :) Drawing and painting on screen have become my passion since December 08, earlier I was doodling from time to time, mostly things that I felt comfortable with.
Now after few odd months of exploring I see improvements and I realised I want more and more.

Without further babbling, enjoy and comment, criticism very welcomed.
Oldies first:
1. My first enviro, some abandoned lab:

2. Painting over sketch, warrior of future tribes:

3.teddy bear hunter :)

another version, this time pen, early concept:

4. Some pen works done in train (both started with single element around which i was drawing, outcome wasn't planned, thus both are bit weird)

5. Cities in dust, first enviro I'm satisfied with.. march 09

It's not even half of what I wanted to throw but I think it's already too much, anyway I hope you'll enjoy your stay here ;) I draw daily, so I'll try to update frequently

cheers!

You have good concepts here that you could improve adding more volume to the shapes to get a bit of deep, in some works are well worked... like in the /8. Fishy fish speed.
Keep it in!

thanks for comment stridiggio, I'm trying my best but it's not yet my mindful working and planning. In some pieces I'm succesful, others are crap or made just for experiment. I hope I'll get on the higher level sometime in future and I'll be aware of loads of technique which is involved in making piece of artwork unique and succesful. Meantime I've been experimenting with character concepts.

Dull stuff and hardly started to be honest, I still have huge problem with faces- even tho I got some basics to draw them, I definately need more practice and studying.

Anyway, here they go:

Can't seem to find enough time to keep my sketchbook updated on regular basis so it will be some kind of dump again...
#1 some speedpaint:
http://i479.photobucket.com/albums/rr157/voxmortem/speed.jpg
#2 various works done when exploring techniques and trying to establish something i feel comfortable in.. I'm not happy with the results yet but I'll get there :)

http://i479.photobucket.com/albums/rr157/voxmortem/Beznazwy-2.jpg
#3 some old stuff I practiced coloring on.. I'm happy with colors but composition sucks:

http://i479.photobucket.com/albums/rr157/voxmortem/cos.jpg
#4 recent speedpaint and WIP, the latter needs whole lot of work especially in composition and leg dept- I want to get max of boring pose I started detailing

"lack of skill"???? These are AMAZING! I would do anything to be able to paint like that. First I need a tablet.. grr! Well done.

Hey dude, you have great sense for designing mechanical things. I really love them, great shapes really. Keep up ;)

thank you very much Shane and Siilion :) I recently got few concepts to do for HL2 mod (robots & soldiers in armors), it's sci fi so it suits me :), here are some pics of work in progress:

Busy day today, I've managed to produce only two speedpaints, first one inspired by Siilion's value studies- I wanted something monochromatic too hehe

The last one has sooo nice sense of light. And it's really good to hear I am not alone in the value study class :D

Agreed on the light. It does give the impression of light surrounding and bouncing everywhere, almost tangible. Good one.

thanks guys.

I did my first attempt on matte but it only revealed tons of problems I have to deal with while practicing. I think composition is broken, colors are off (contrast and saturation, tho I could probably fix it messing with sliders) and architecture is well... simple. Sometimes it's good to spend couple hours to learn what needs to be learnt next hehe

You have some great concepts here that i would love to see finished - keep up the good work!

Holly shit, this is great dude. Only one advice, focus on perspective even more. It's boring, but worthy doing. Your piece would have even greater impact if those few perspective distortions wouldn't be there. Most people won't tell you where they are, they just feel that something is not correct there. But anyway, good work on this one, keep up buddy ;)
