hey guys,

here are all the crests next to each other with their silhouettes showing.

I hope we can hold the deadline with this project, gonna be tight!

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-02-2015

Hey guys,

some late inktober sketches and some gestures as well new concepts for the game. I first did the map then started concepting the plants. Was a blast!

Liking the concept work and digging the improvement! Keep truckin!

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-05-2015

dodeqaa: thanks man, I will!

I really really can't stand sucking so much at gesture, so I finally decided to turn to somebody to help me learn it. I am working through Proko's premium content on basics of figure drawing. After watching a video and sketching alongside his demonstrations, I think I am understanding it slowly. I did some more on my own. Check out this website for reference pictures:

new week, new studies, started with some gestures and did a still-life over the weekend (2h)

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-09-2015

gestures and water-colors

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-10-2015


RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-10-2015

gestures and a value study that I am not happy with

edit: i added the ref for comparison

RE: Flo's sketchbook - seppoday - 12-10-2015

Hello, nice gestures. About last lady, you probably knew that proportions are little bit off :) but in my opinion beside that major problem is form and values (+soft, hard edges). let me explain that by image:

Left ball: Your flat painting
Right ball: Reference ball* :P
And quick paintover on bottom (2 minutes  ?) thats why it looks little bit like silk, sry for that :P

I ve spend on it like 5-10 minutes (whole "tutorial" :D). Can be way more accurate. So major problem is that ur form is flat. You need to know basics and it is frustrating i know. But you need to think and knew that there is terminator, reflected light, core shadow etc. I am not great in art, but i want to help. Try reading James Gurney Light and color its great book

And remember where u use hard and where soft edge and how form reflect light ( metal is different than paper etc )! :)

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-14-2015

hey seppo,

thanks for the post, I wrote you a pm about that broken image-link.

gestures and I worked more on the lady

RE: Flo's sketchbook - AlCo - 12-14-2015

Keep those gestures drawing coming (I'm tackling it right now too!)

Other than that, killer sketchbook, I love those plants studies, they have that kind of dynamic sketching I'm trying to achieve (Norm Schureman/Peter Han style).

Would love to see some still life with rendered metal ;)

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-16-2015

AlCo thanks man, that still life has to wait atm, but I will do it :)
painting a texture for the game. really relaxing exercise

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-17-2015

going back to square one, I really didn't get some of the basics.

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 12-19-2015

Really love your concepts, and also you did what I wanted to but didn't do! Watercolor paintings for Christmas gifts! Hats off to you.

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 01-13-2016

@Meat: thanks man, the people liked the paintings. I checked your sb, it is really nice. you seem to have taken a lot from that workshop

I spend 2 weeks with my parents over the holidays. It was good to see them for such a long time.

When I visited Freiburg I went to the Augustiner Museum and saw, for the first time, paintings by Franz Xaver Winterhalter. From one of them I did a study, it took 3,5 h. There was a person, who gave us instructions and she helped me in the beginning stages of the drawing to lay out the grid and get the proportions right. Usually I don't spend enough time in those critical measurements and jump right to the values. So this time, forcing me to get it right in the beginning was challanging but I learned a lot.

Also a random value study from imagination.

RE: Flo's sketchbook - Flo - 01-19-2016
