Thanks for the kind welcome
The architectural projects you have in here are beautiful, and I find your sketches especially interesting. They give me a lot more incentive to study perspective. Your anatomy studies are gorgeous as well. Thank you for the inspiration, and keep up the great work!
PieMonster: Thanks much!! I really liked the watercolours too, I need to do more of em! And everyone can crit on architecture! We all spend our entire lives in spaces - we know which ones we like, which ones we don't, what makes us feel different ways and so on. The non-architecturally educated person can tell within 10 seconds if the space they're in is comfortable or not, whether physically, visually/aesthetically, or mentally. I'll add a giant octopus monster rising out of the river to crush the building
Bocks: Wow, thanks lots! Project deadline is Monday so it's crunch time!
CuriosityKick: Thank you very much, and you're very welcome!
Got a few things for tonight... been trying to figure out markers lately and I think I finally got it. Did a quick random building in elevation. A few of you have mentioned that at times I draw flat things with no perspective - it's on purpose. They're called elevations and have no true perspective and serve more as a proportional and measuring purpose than an art purpose. Anyway, there's one of those, and some more progress with the current project. Got a quick sketch of what the river-front at the restaurant will look like as well as the adjacent garden.
EDIT: Here are the finished renders for the project... I missed a week and a half of time to work on this so it isn't nearly where I'd like it to be, but it'll do. Time for a nap... model building begins in 8 hours.
Wish me luck!

Wow, you appear to be the epitome of "concept art" haha. I like your skills, I would love to be able to do those watercolours.
I must say though I liked your studies at the start on the first page, pity there aren't more drawing in this style Though I can see you are very busy!
AlexTooth: Thanks kindly! Those watercolours were my first 3 tries! Just give it a shot, they're fun and easy! As for the old studies and drawings, yea I miss those too! Architorture owns my soul... I don't even have time to draw buildings!
So I got a Wacom on Monday!!!!!!!!
This is my first try. Photoshop CS4. 1.5 hours, no ref. Inspired by the recent (and historical) incidents in Sylvia Plath's family...
EDIT: Also probably heavily and indirectly influenced by me watching Punisher War Zone and Max Payne a week ago. Y'think?

god damn.. beautiful digital model, most people don't understand how difficult it is to produce something like that, excellent work and great design.. arch people, if you ever build a digital model (you will) take notes here.. excellent
nice architecture! hmm maybe it cost to feel more life,because it is remind me ecvilibrium (film) with ordering and ideal shape in all
thanks for the advise man, yes i do tend to forget about proportion alot. i will continue with my studies!!! thanks man good work with your studies as well.
Hey mate, really good work, it might be a huge amount of work to do all these architecture modeling ! Anyway, for your last digital painting, your scene is a bit empty, you should take a look at some design principles, here http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=110809 ( well you can go through the whole environmentoring sectio, many great advices and exercises there ! ) Keep working
I just spent some time through your sketchbook: I'm really impressed. I love art and I love design in general and your works are very good!
Subscribed, please keep it more updated then mine SB.
Thank you for posting in my thread.Your thread reminds me of the time I used to be in the architecture school, it actually reminds me of the really talented guys from school that always managed to do great projects.I was never one of those guys, I could never get it, I dropped out of school after the first year. Your work looks really great though and it shows that you like doing this and what is even better, you also like drawing, which is really good, you can't say that about many architects.What can I say except keep up the great work.
Bocks: Wooo! Thank you sir!
Giorge: Thanks! Cardboard, not as bad as it seems. Time consuming, but incredibly easy.
VanDog: Ha! I've been watching Equilibrium and Minority Report and The Island a lot lately. The architecture in those are some some of my favourite environments so they're definitely influential in a way. Sterile sort of but still alive... just enough feeling. Thanks!
Joce: Hey, man! Thanks!
Walid D: Nice!!! Thanks for that link! That's definitely something I was looking for.
anjin: Thanks very much!
Grandmassa Mr. Spect: Yea! Awesome! Thanks a lot.
asa: Thanks a lot for the kind words! I will definitely keep it up!
Found out I got accepted to the Savannah College of Art and Design!! Prayin' for those scholarships now. Waiting on a few other schools, too, but yay SCAD!
Anyway, here's the portfolio they were given. It will be updated soon to include my most recent architecture project and other things, but this was it as of February 28. There are a few studies near the back originally done by people you should readily recognize, and if not, they are Wes Burt, Michael Mentler, Tensai, Andrew Loomis, and some other obvious characters. CHECK OUT THEIR WORK! I wouldn't be nearly anywhere close to where I am had it not been for all the influential people on CA.org, everyone who's given me encouragement, critiques, and so on. It's really incredible to finally have some tangible evidence that says, "Your work is good enough," and I wouldn't be that without this community or this site so thanks to everyone who comes through my sketchbook!!!
So the portfolio. 6"x12" plates, 24" spreads, laser printed on heavy coated bond paper. The plates were printed all on 1 side, so each page is folded giving it an extra thick backing and a really interesting (and cheap) solution to double-sided printing that I think looks a lot nicer. Nothing holds the pages together except for the wire bind. The barcode actually does read my name if you scan it with the proper coding system. Same code is then spread across the portfolio faintly in the background to soften all the white. Thin sheet of semi-opaque polycarbonate on the outside covers. Critique even this.
Lastly, more fun with the Wacom. 3rd day using it. Finally starting to learn!

Congratulations for getting in the SCAD!!!!
Your portfolio looks tight man. Good work!
I hope to see more from you, digital stuff, architectural work (a fan of those), studies, all that.
luness: Hey, man! Thanks so much! Your works been a huge visual inspiration for me. Thanks for the support and kind words!
a la bapsi: Yea yea!!! Thanks kindly!
PoseManiacs kicked my ASS! And I'm gettin' the hang of this here Wacom thingy! 4th day using it, 30 minutes. Feelin' good, folks. I'm feelin' gooood...
Absolutely crazy stuff man! Thanks you somuch for dropping by my sb at such an opportune time because i have some serious perspective heavy assignements coming up and i will be begging, yes begging, you to come over and tear them to pieces so i can make them better.
Great sb once again. subscribed!
The anatomy studies are brilliant. I'm impressed with your knowledge and imagination for architecture too. Your dedication is inspiring. I was wondering if you have you read The Fountainhead by any chance?
You've got some seriously stunning stuff here. I went through your book briefly at work a couple of days ago but was too busy to write down a comment. Anyhow I really like what I see and am pleasantly surprised to see some architecture stuff ( awesome btw ). I'm a huge fan of your drawings, they've got this awesome looseness to them.
Actually I was about to go and study architecture as well but possibility of a career as a concept artist presented itself and I chose to at least postpone the architecture studies.
Thanks for the kind words ( and stars!! ) in my sb. They are truly appreciated! I'll keep an close eye on you, and oh- I thought you deserved a few stars as well
Thanks for the support Ian! Now time for some from me. Certainly keep up the posemaniacs (if not at least for exercise!) and the wacom work.
Your portfolio / cv is very impressive and as a mere freshman I am in no position to even attempt to crit any of this great work!
On a related note, how do you find architects (and their kin) react to your fine arts work? I am quite curious as you may have guessed.
None the less congrats with the acceptance and keep up the good work!
Wooow! First of all,, your stuff is so inspiring, the patience and skill you have to create those booklike anatomy studies is very impressive!
Second the building you create/design are very impressive. They look very cool!
And third, you rock.. i will return the favour! Ill try even hard and follow up the tips you gave me. I will do my very best!
Thanks for passing by my SB. Nice architectural stuff u have in your SB. I not very familiar with architecture as a field of study but from what i gather from a few architectural frens, it demands alot of dedication and meticulous studies, both artistic and engineering in nature. So *salute*
Just curious, you are studying architecture now or wanting to study architecture. Cos you mentioned you got accepted into SCAD which sort of confused me what you are pursuing right now.

a few nights ago I was procrastinating worse than ever, opened a fortune cookie sitting on my desk that was about 2 weeks old, out came something along the lines of "Ideas not coupled with action never become bigger than the brain cells they occupied"
I have that tiny little fortune glued above my work desk in the center of my wall now.. ha, ironic, needless to say, i drew
excellent portfolio by the way, the organization is brilliant
