Hi! My name is Ben, and I'm an illustration student who's aspiring to one day be a concept artist. I'm currently trying to decide what Entertainment/Industrial design school to go to after I get my bachelor's in illustration (FZD or TAD?), but for now I just try to get better. By the way, if you have any unbiased advice on the matter (I feel the need to specify seeing as how this forum is actually owned by the art department), I would love to hear it. I need to submit my portfolio somewhere a year from now and I need to be ready for that. Or who knows, I might just keep studying these masters videos posted by CTRLPAint and FZDSchool and see where I am in a year.
I don't really know what in particular to fill this thread with, so I thought I'd start by posting my latest works from my illustration class, and look around for what else I can put here. Maybe I'll just fill this thing with honest to goodness sketches??? It's possible!
Here's something I did last semester that was received pretty well:
It's about energy! Specifically, moving from the bottom up, the evolution of energy. It's pretty straightforward like that.
And here's something I did that is a bit complicated. Here's a hint to understanding whats going on: There's two stories! Can you tell me both of them?
If you can't figure out whats going on, I wrote an analysis of it here that explains what you're looking at. It's a bit complicated. I should probably stop trying to make my illustrations puzzles.
Yeah anyways I'm gonna go scan some stuff and takes some photos and do some studies and live my life hey lets talk later though

Thanks guys! But did my original post get deleted or something? I can't actually see it anymore, just you guys responding to it somehow. It says there are four results, and counting this post among your two replies, I think that means the original post wasn't deleted? But I still can't see it? What happened?
I'm not used to this forum layout, so bear with me here.

Augh, so I just figured out new members aren't supposed to be editing the first posts of their threads or else the post will be magically removed. I'm still working out if it's able to be returned, but right now I have a sketch of a character design I've been fleshing out. It's just his head, though:
You might look at this and think there's not enough value range, and you'd be right to do that, because it's true. I dunno if I need darker pencils or something, but I made this because I want to go back over it and paint it in photoshop. When I do that it will definitely have some deep darks and some bright whites.
And then there's some figure drawings I did the other day:
This is resized from the initial 2500x2500 size painting. So I wasn't actually drawing them this small IF THAT WASN'T OBVIOUS. I'm trying to learn how to draw figures from imagination. It's very fascinating to learn!
I dunno if this is junk that I'm uploading? I'm currently trying to discern what makes a good sketchbook thread.
Critique is ALWAYS welcome. Always!
phoenix 56, great start! I can see you are a hard worker, but my advice for you is to get some anatomy books and study them.
