Default Arting

So I've been working on a new oil piece, but doing a lot of sketches during the drying times between glazes. My goal is to build a butt kicking concept art portfolio for the gaming industry, since there's a lot of game companies in Seattle who are potential employers. Which means I need a lot more work on figures, and landscapes/ environments, and everything else. Especially rendering stuff digitally.

Anyway, here's a sketch dump. If anyone has criticisms, please let me know! I need to get better! arrr.

First off are the gesture drawings. I've been pausing movies at random spots and spending a few minutes per drawing. The self imposed limit is 5 minutes. I should probably cut it down to 2 for a few nights.

Referenced from The Magnificent Seven



Referenced from The Two Towers



Some old cossack/Kazakh guy


Tired riot cop. Please ignore that really weird sketchy guy in the left corner, lol. I'm trying to do studies of real life body armor so I can make up realistic sci fi stuff.


hahaha, some lametastic designs for a post-apocalyptic cossack. This needs sooo much work, and there's so much wrong in the bottom sketch but it's something I may play with some more, to practice doing mock up character sheets and digital rendering. It needs to be redrawn with references. I am sooo ashamed of that rifle right now.



And the digital stuff. Creepy creature. Before and after coloring attempts.

Then a couple of digital landscape studies. They're supposed to be speedpaints. I used photo references and set a 45 minute timer. They're pretty much done with only the round brush in photoshop, because I don't know how to use anything else. lol

Yeah, this. X1000.

That snowy landscape picture is really awesome. I'd totally hang that on my wall.

That bird creature looks like it would be in Borderlands.

Ditto the above. Really really good. Your people look so anatomically correct, I wish I could sketch out people like that. And I love your bird creature.

Love everything especially the 45 minute timed digital speed painting.

My computer won't let me see all of them, but I really like the idea of timed drawings! I always get tangled in the details.

You are very, very, talented! I can't wait to see more!

Thanks everyone! I really want to work on more creatures but it doesn't do a whole lot for improving technical skills. Got another speedpaint done. Next week I'm going to try and really polish some of the landscapes.
