Makin' progress in here, blex I like that penguin -- your reffed studies are coming right along.. stay with it!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
Hey! Check out my blog here
WAHH!! Your studies are so good man!!!
Lets see some more stuffs from imagination though, that elephant piece was great too btw.
keep it up!
Mystik - Thanks! I think you're the only one who actually likes it! ^^
dU5K - Thanks you. Yeah, I know, my line-work could be better... :/
Amontill - Cool, I don't see much of a progress yet, but we'll see. If I continue being that lazy I can dig my own grave. D:
Noukah - It's one of my faves of him, too. Thanks, I'll try.
hala - Thaaanks! Stuff from imagination? Than this update will please you! ^^
Lyno - Thank you. Soften skin isn't hard, it really isn't. Just use the soft airbrush brush. (xD) I might use it too often. D:
Tetro - Where is your ass-kicking power??? D:
Wow, it's been a while.
I didn't die or something. ^^
I started my internship and it's quite an experience. I'm doing alot of vector stuff and sitting 8 hours infront of an computer so that I'm really tired and not really inspired to do stuff in the evening... D:
But here is some of the stuff I did on the weekends.
My lighting still sucks, so I did some greyscale studies. I didn't do those for a long time.
I love the fotoseries "SOUL" by Thierry le Gouès.
And it was very easy doing some quick studies of it. I think I learned quite a bit about lighting and form. I might do some more! (10-30 mins)
And rest is from imagination.
An older piece. Don't really like it, but I wanted to know what I've learned about atmosphere and painting a gold armor from head.
The contrasts on the armor are bad. Well, at least I see all my faults. ^^
This was a gift for a friend. I kinda like that one and how the print turned out.
Here a sci-fi portrait. Everyone says that it just looks like me. D: But it was really from my imagination. Well, you couldn't tell, because I didn't upload a self-portrait yet. I doodled 3 portraits but I decided to just frame that one. God, I love science-fiction. Thinking about to do more of this genre.
I didn't do a lot of pencil stuff. No, not really. I did quite some 30 sec posemaniacs to get a feeling for the human body, but it really isn't worth sharing. ^^
Thanks for watching. I hope to update soon!
But for now, I have to sleep because I'm sick for the last 3 days, but it's getting better.
Not soo sick that I can't go to the advertising agency every day, but still pretty destroyed. ^^´
I have to do way more for being able to do cool illustrations and concepts.
LIVE YOUR DREAM!
Gaaaah, I'm sorry, I'm really busy atm too, two weeks of work left before my vacation... wanted to kick your ass a while back, when you didn't update, but I figured you're all busy with your internship. How is it? Do you learn useful stuff? Composition and colors, I guess...
Good to see, that you're using your weekends... I like your bounce-lighting. Some of these seem rather pixelated to me. What size/resolution are you working on? Do you use sharpening filters?
My favourite is the first one... Saved that to my inspirations, you did a very good job. The last one is also very well done, seems like you used the knowledge you got from doing the drapery in your still lives.
Keep goin, even though you're busy! I will check back in two weeks and I wanna see improvement Muahaha!
Keep it up, you're progressing... And watch your edges...
hah wow, that's some seriously great stuff for absolute beginnings
I really like your studies man, the colors in your stilllifes look especially good.
Where are you?!? D:
no87 - Thanks! I sure will! =)
Tetroooo - Hey man. Good to see you're still not giving up on me. =D Yeah, I learn quite a bit about composition and typography. Which is fun. I just figured that they don't even have colors at the agency - and they don't draw anything. D: So I have to study Illustration or just Art or whatever. But I don't want do give up "real" art at all... I'm planning to visit Leipzig these days, just waiting for their reply with a date. I always work bigger than A3, sometimes just A3 but I figured that they are pixelated because all my digis are just screenshots because they would be too big in the original size. I tried to scale it down this time - just for you. xD
monotony - Thaaaanks. I like your ink stuff!
again Tetroooooooooooo - Ahhhhh! D:
I did quite some stuff but nothing useful. Just wanted to don't get killed by Tetro. ;P
I guess it's a superhero thing. ^_^
(Don't know about the anatomie... D
and two quick photo studies.
I also tried to get better with my linework. But nothing to share I guess...
That's all for today. 0_o *dumps and run*
hey Sebastian. I`m happy that I watched this thread. You got some great stuff in here. I have no idea why the universitys rejected you.
( wo genau hast du dich beworben und für was? Ich studiere in Münster, vllt. kann ich dir irgendwie helfen? :o )
Love your work and cannot believe you can't get accepted to a school, your stuff is just great! Keep trying man i'm sure you'll get in somewhere!
Sketch back if you'd like....
My Sketchbook:Struggling to become and Artist XD
I love your stuff, specially the red sonja piece...
Not much of an update, just wanted to tell you guys that you keep me going.
Noro Danke! =D Ich hab mich in Mannheim, Kassel und Karlsruhe beworben. In Kassel wurde ich zur Eignungsprüfung eingeladen und bin da durchgefallen. Erst später hab ich mitbekommen, dass die abstraktes bevorzugen und nicht den Realismusgrad, den ich anstrebe... Die meisten sehen wohl auch keinen Grafikdesigner in mir, da ich mehr illustriere und gerne malerisch arbeite. Als nächstes probiere ich für Illustration in Hamburg oder Leipzig einen Studienplatz zu ergattern. Leipzig wär schon ein Traum... Well, shit happens! Yes, you could help me out with crits and comments. I hope to see you in here soon!
adammelo Thank you! I'm checking out your sketchbook as soon as I finished this post!
ariel_medel Thank you! =)
Here's a redhead from a music-video on youtube. I took a screenshot of her, which was very blurry and tried to frame it out. That's why it looks kinda stylized. Quite an expierience, but I'm not really satisfied... She looks like a doll and the nose is weird... I have to study noses. xD
And here I wanted to capture an atmosphere - with a brush orgy. :'D
Well, I guess it's obvious which colors I'm into lately.^^
But I try to scan some pencil stuff soon, too.
Uh huh, that's what I wanna see... And nah, I'm not gonna kill you... if you update regularly!!! >:] Mwahaha
Jeah, that's the right attitude! Don't give up!
Your colors seem to look pretty solid to me. Now show us some linework, some pencils!!! D: Thats what you're going to need for your application to Leipzig! Work for your dream... Leipzig would surely be damn awesome! I hope you get there. Now pump out the studies and try to get the best you can!!!
Sweet work you got here. Thanks for the advice. I'll try to do it better the next time. But I'm a very impatient person so I can't concentrate very long . Also subscribed. Your life drawings and digital paintings are outstanding. Already a lot of work in here for such a short time. Warum schreib ich nicht eifnach auf deutsch? Eine Freundin von mir wurde in Karlsruhe angenommen. Vielleicht hast du sie getroffen. Ich würde sagen um dich in Leipzig zu bewerben musst du noch ein bisschen besser werden. Ein Kumpel von mir hats auch versucht und wurde abgelehnt, obwohl er sehr talentiert ist. Algenpfleger hier aus dem Forum wurde z.B. genommen, aber er ist schon sehr begabt.

your still life digitals are amazing. Really awesome observation skills. I don't really have anything to crit...I needs a lot of crits myself. ^_^
as I said before: great stuff in here!
The last girl looks great, maybe a little too much "soft brushed" you know? It works well with the exterior details but the face itself, especially the nose seems a bit too smooth to me
keep up the good work
So much German love! Hmmm...
Tetro - I've got a little time right now and I'm working on pencil-powaaa! Yeah, I know, just don't forget what Genie said (Aladdin series xD): "MAGIC IS WHO MAGIC DOES!"
Rushlord - Thanks! I know, I'm not that good... not yet... =D
Growling - Thankies! Well, then I have to stop by!!
Noro - Thanks! I realized that but was too lazy to chnage it. ^^ Haha, the soft brush is so tempting, istn't it? xD
jatherip - Thanks, very appreciated! Studies from life? Not this time, but look out I will do some more! =D
Lately I'm doing comission stuff and totally forgot to upload my stuff here.
I don't have much to show but at least something.
It's already two weeks old! D:
Two greyscale Portrsaits from head!
I wanted 'em to look awesome and was kinda disappointed... The anime influence is still visible! ö.ö How do I get rid of this! ^^
It's the first time I tried sharpening filter. I'm not sure how to feel about it... :/
Now I want some crits guys! Bang me on the wall! (Which doesn't mean "have sex with blex!" D: )
Man I am glad I found this sketchbook, very inspiring, you have some amazing pieces of art in here, I'll learn a lot from this SB, thanks for sharing your work
waaa! awesome man. The first one is really stunning. You used the soft brush pretty well
The second one is great too, but I guess there`s something wrong with the back of her head. It`s kind of too high and round. I`m not sure what it is, but it looks a bit weird.
Keep on, damn, gonna paint tons now, thx
no name - That's great, thank you!
Noro - Ah...hahaha, you're right. I changed the angle of her head without changing her head angle, well that was dumb. ^^ Thanks for the crit! Glad you like 'em!
Rushlord - Thanks! @.@
I managed to scan some anatomy studies from sunday.
Pencil stuff. I have to get into that again because the lines suck and the anatomy too... D:
And a pissed off bull. He was almost done as my computer crashed and I DIDN'T SAVED IT. 0.o I also painted some chains around the neck...
Now I'm pissed... cause I don't want to finish him once more.
But was lucky to save it in between.
Another reason to return to the good old traditional work. =)
Excuse the crit 'n run, but I'm really busy atm... need to go to bed.
About your anime influence: I wouldn't have noticed if you wouldn't have mentioned it... I think its only about the eyes. Die Pupillen erscheinen mir etwas groß und stilisiert: starke Umrandung und helle Iris. Maybe do a few eye studies to check your knowledge. Other than that and the deformed head, the portraits are gut gelungen (sorry, I'm not capable of writing English when I'm this tired). I like that you're also thinking of focus and edges for them.
Your pencils come along very well. Aside form the necks I think some of the shoulders are a little bulky and slightly out of proportion, mostly on the first pages. I would suggest doing some studies of the whole neck-shoulder area in different angles. Maybe you could get a mirror and study your own shoulders/neck so that you can get the reference you need to understand the form better.
Oh and your doing comissions now? Dude, thats awesome!!! You're going places *sings* ...and I'm going to bed...
SamC - You're so right, my neck suck! I'm a bit unable to imagine the muscles and bones there... study!!! but not today... I'm too tired, man! ^^
Tetrooo - I'm tired too, but I needed to drop this! Neck/Shoulder and eye studies are on my list! Thank you for the crits, you're always welcome in here, but you should have noticed that by now! xD Sleep tight bud! =)
I had to paint something today so here it is...
It turned out way to saturated as I wanted it. But oh well. ^^
I hope that I'm be able to laugh at this in a few month.
You some very nice work here! Progress since page 1 and all that good stuff.
I agree with Texodotoxin - some eye studies would do you some good. The latest portrait is lovely (I personally like saturated colours as long as it's done with some taste), and the face has a lot of form, except for the eyes which look very flat. You just have to remember that they are round, and curve with the face as well. Some variation in the skintones would be a plus too. Some red from underlying blood in the cheeks and eyelids etc.
Keep it up.
