Environment Concept for Case #1873

Not sure if the composition is working for me, but since it's a very easy thing to fix I might change it later :) Next task is going to be storyboarding. Yum :>

They were supposed to be just thumbs, but I ended up spending a looooot of time on them because of the fun (and lack of experience :)

Afro Speed


Applying the recently learned composition and facial lessons while listening to ACDC with my sweetie :) Composition makes all the difference!  I'm not sure I'm done with the image yet. We'll see what kind of future refining it might undergo!

Digital Painting - Training Exercise 1

I was supposed to be studying today, but spent 6 hours doing some painting exercises instead :P Now I'm stuck doing homework in the middle of the night. Anyway, the result was this painting. The aim of the exercise was to try recreating a reference photo with photoshop. The original photo was taken by Ukiko , and can viewed here.

Afro Speed

More speed painting exercises, this time with people :) I really need to start doing whole figures instead of the usual portraits. They key to speed painting is to get the details down with as little strokes as possible, so they have to be quite accurate and smooth as they are laid down.
I really like this sci-fi afro girl. I've been watching too much sci-fi for my own good recently haha :)

Rebecca Sketch

This is Rebecca, a character I'm developing for a concept art study project. She's supposed to be a fragile nerd type, so there will probably be some more changes :)
I've tried out a few skin-tone rendering tips taken from the course. I really like the outcome.

Thumbnail drawing ,Refinings, AND A NEW LAYOUT!

This week's assignment in progress is about thumbnail sketching our characters. Mine look too skinny because the character is supposed to be a lil twig haha

and I've been doing some further refining on my cold snowflake girl. She used to look so flat!

As for my new layout.. I t hink it looks a little too girly so might change it a little more later, but I'm so glad to rid myself of the cramped-up old one :)

Perspective Prop

My prop concept for an ongoing uni-project. Basically steam-punk combined with some contemporary geometric shapes. I'm still new to perspective, but can still see it's kindof off :p That's what happens when someone leaves themselves with just one day to work on something!
