Hey there, CA Forums!
My name's Tim. I'm a 20 year old guy from Vienna, Austria. I'm big into Digital Art and Concept Art (duh, why else would I be here) and I'm hoping to get some constructive criticism from people who have some experience in this field in order to grow as an artist.
That was the typical introductory stuff, now to my work so far
I'm looking forward to joining this community of fellow artists and art enthusiasts!
Here's some more stuff. Also, if anyone cares for it, my deviantArt gallery: http://weaving-worlds.deviantart.com/
Comments & critique are always much appreciated :]
hiya there man, nice works i really like your lighting and color just on the depth of your environments its good to disaturate the colors when it gets farther it will make distance more readable and lower the contrast ^^ but over all they are great pieces
The breaking bad studie is insane! But good work overall.
w00t, my first comment! Thanks for the piece of advice, I'll try to pay more attention to that on my next pic.
@ Staal Sander: Thanks! I don't normally do screenshot studies (though I probably should ^^) but that scene was just too awesome ;]
I was here, too. Will follow and wait for more! My favorite scenery is the one just before the Breaking Bad (Bad man drawing?), with the light castle surrounded by mountains. Also, the grass on the drawing of the blue-robed boy is very nice. That picture, though not as well-worked in an overall sense, still draws me in.
Nice stuff, I like the little wizard walking through the tall grass. I would just reiterate what Eumir Carlo said about desaturating your colors as objects go further into the background. Good start to a sketchbook for sure though!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, you two! Glad you enjoy my work so far :]
My PC broke a few weeks ago, so while I'm waiting for the new one to arrive, here's a traditional sketch I did.
You're very creative! That sketch looks so cool. I'd like to see more of 'em!
Sketchbook -- Any feedback helps!
Thanks! I love doing environments, though I should probably get back to focusing more on characters and anatomy. Have been neglecting that for some time now :0
Still no new PC, so here's some stuff from my various sketchbooks
Heh, thanks. The hatching was actually rather easy to do. I worked pretty rough, since tree bark isn't perfectly flat, so I just did more or less random sets of lines on the spots that the light from the lantern wouldn't hit. I think part of the nice effect of the picture happened because by the time I was done hatching, the graphite from the pencil was smeared all over the page and gave it a slight grey tone. So I erased some of it, creating some highlights on the trees.
From the Wanderer's Journal:
"Some folk tales in the Eastern Kingdom make mention of a lost city without a name, hidden away under a lake between the highest mountains. As the legend goes, its people angered the old gods by building their towers and palaces too close to the sky, until finally the gods sent a storm like no other. It would last decades; the wind constantly pushing against the walls, the rain slowly engulfing the valley. Eventually its inhabitants had no other choice but to leave their homes, and the city fell silent. Nowadays, only the highest remaining buildings reach the surface of the lake, housing birds, lizards and fish. Nothing is left of the life that used to flow through the streets of this lost metropolis."
Worked on this for a couple of days now. I think I should use the nameless wanderer in my environments more often. I like to include bits from his journal - it makes it easier to immerse oneself in the pictures.
Anyway, tell me what you think. Any critique is much appreciated and returned.
Impressive stuffs man, for the latest piece my only crit is if possible please lower the height of viewpoint a bit, or correct the distant between your character and the building, right now I feel like if your character is about 1 meter and 3/4 then the building is only like around 6 meters, basically it feel like a hobbit's building to me.
Thanks for the feedback! I changed the boat and character's size and I think it feels much better now. I also tweaked the colours of the lake a bit.
this is really really great man ^^ yah same as fxEVo said its probably coz the saturation of the building is high and the character is low so it feels like the character is farther. and ur mountain texture is awesome as well though the separation among them could be better ^^ keep up the good work man ^^
Sorry for the long inactivity ^^ Been busy with school and stuff.
But now I'm sick! So I can't really do anything other than paint.
Comments & critique MUCH appreciated!
And a self portrait, for practice.
Aaaand another one. Being sick during easter break sucks, but at least I stay productive.
Hope you like.
