I'll be dumping my school projects, personal projects, and products of conceptart.org activities here. My goal is to become proficient in concept art and 3d modeling/rigging.
These thumbnails were done in PS.

These thumbnails show some great mood and design creativity. I kind of want to see them developed into concepts/illustrations, although I am sure you have plenty of projects.
Glad you made a sketchbook, now the pressure is on to do those daily studies!
here's something I did for this daily sketch:http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=141152

Sweet submission Don! You definitely got some intense contrast going as per the assignment.
My only crits are that the composition is really central, even so, there's enough going on with other points of interest that I don't think it's super static.
Also, the green lines of light suggesting highways that are farther away are the same line weight as the foreground which hurts the illusion of depth.
Nice backlighting on the structures nearest us and the clouds of smog. Overall, really successful, keep it up man!
Some nice stuff here. Like the hands and feet sketches. Post more.
Hey man, some real cool things you got here! I am liking a lot of it, but I would advice you not to be so focused on producing impressive things, and do more studies instead, as they can be quite impressive in their own right Also, you should stay of the custom brushes until you master the simple round one. This will challenge you to think in other ways when it comes to textures and what not, so yeah..
Anyways, keep posting, keep getting better
wow, thanks Mischievouslittleelf. I agree, I will be doing more studies with less focus on impressive comps like the previous sketch. I did that at 2 am too, so I shant be held responsible! ;D About the brushes: yeah, I will try to lay off the customs and textures in my studies, I'm sure it will help.

I am quite enjoying your latest works, Don. Those thumbs for the animation bg look well considered and show experimentation with some interesting compositions and perspective situations.
The effect of using high scattering with those painter brushes is powerful but might be overused at times.
See you in modeling!
thanks Dan! it was a neat experience doing all those thumbs in 3 hours, allowing me to be even more messy than I naturally am. gave me a little more confidence. I did them in photoshop though, so I kinda cheated. yeah, you can get addicted to using certain custom brushes but hopefully I will try to get more comfortable with the round brush like the mother study. Im real interested in panoramic perspective now seen in photos, and even basic one point. maybe Ill order that perspective vid on massive black.
some tank silhouette concepts for my brother's gamesyn mod he's trying to get rolling:http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...06#post2046906

I couldn't sleep tonight for some weird reason so I got up after going to bed early and decided to work on my unfinished hand. It was supposed to be for my first 3d modeling/rendering class but we never got to finish it because a new teacher came in and was teaching us differently (albeit better). It wasn't due as our final but I really felt like I needed to finish it. Then after making a base mesh, for fun, I took it into zbrush and detailed it so-so:
