Joshua Meehan's Sketchbook
#1
Hello Daggers,
So I began my journey this year in the freelance world. Dropped from college cause I was just screwing around in boring general education classes meant to suck my money away all in the name of a piece of paper that no one cares about.

So I have been pushing myself even harder as immediate debt is looming over and college debt comes quickly around the corner.

Here is where I am at now. Any advice or critiques would be welcome in prioritizing my studies.
Thank you in advance!

Sincerely,
Josh

bloodsporting! my concept is a Viking is transported to the future on mars, the location of the wizards factory for his intergalactic mutant army. He meets a defective mutant and together team up to blow the facility from the inside! I just thought Vikings on mars sounded bad ass :p

thanks Jaik and thanks to everyone for the support and suggestions!

Here's my bloodsport final that I sent in today, was scared I wouldn't finish in time today. Client work has jumped a lot this week so sacrificing what needs to be sacrificed to make it all work out!

Great sketchbook man! Dig the looseness and stylistic approach that you have and you certainly have the ability to take it further in detail! Love those LMS illustration you had going on. Would be awesome to see more of them finished. Great vehicle concepts in the last post!

One thing that I think you could work on is color. It looks kind of desaturated and mostly like it's an overlay on a black and white painting. I could recommend doing a still life, or atleast something from life :D Always a good idea!

Bjulvar: Thank you very much. I agree I do need to get the color together and still life would be a great way to do that!

Another Illustration job went live last month and it made me very happy to to see the positive vibes that came with it! I wanted to put the process on here and it was an interesting job and my first cover illustration for a short story!

it was for the writers of the future anthology. 11 winners and myself were winners of the Illustrators of the Future Contest. We each received a winning short story from the Writers of the Future Contest. Mine was by Stephen Sottong called Planetary Scouts and I was SUPER happy to get it! Aliens and Space Marines and Spaceships! What could go wrong?!
