Raman's Sketchbook

my name is Raman. I'm 19 years old and I'm currently living in Berlin.

I started painting and drawing regularly about 2 1/2 years ago and just as probably everybody in this forum I want to become a professional artist. I want it with every part of my body, because art is the thing that makes me the happiest person in the world eventhough it can be really depressing from time to time.
I will do my best to improve as much as I can and I would really appreciate some advice and critique from you guys. Ofcourse I will do my best to help everybody else as far as i can.

Well, here is some of my stuff:

Awesome Stuff!
I like your use of colors, and those concepts are great!
environments, comics, illustration, concepts.. is there something you can't do o.O? :D
nothing left to say, keep on pushing, I love your work :)

@ Saraiza: Thank you very much. Feels good to hear stuff like that from time to time. :)

Love the environments you got there :)
man, the last character animation is awesome , you did that in photoshop?

@ Vigil: Oh thanks :) I kinda feel like environments are actually my biggest weakness.

@Kike Rdz: Thank you. No, I drew and animated the characters in flash.

You have some really greeaat stuff!!! I don't know why but the one with the Indian girl is my very favorite! You nailed the color and the mood so well! It's amazing! YOur other scenes/portraits paintings where the brush strokes are very messy are really gorgeous too. Keep up! :D

You are your only limits!

@ LaleAnn: Thank you very much :) well the reference for the indian girl was kinda amzing too :)

oh wow. Great sketchbook! Your use of color is awesome and your lines are also gorgeous.You do a shitload of work...so no valuable advice from me...sorry :D

Lovely...just lovely :)
@ Othrandir: Thanks :)

Good stuff man, very interesting!
Wow, great stuff here! I like your sense of color. Beautiful studies too! Looking forward to see more of your works :)

nice work here, particularly on those figures!
in terms of the landscape i think your atmospheric perspective could use some work, try to remember still show three dimensional form when they are further away, the value ranges just get closer together, look forward to seeing more though!

You're too kind. ^__^ I have many flaws.. i saw your craig manchess study, now this is the right kind of guy you can learn color from and you can't beat the masters.
Speaking of craig mullins, someone posted an incredible pdf on mullins notes on painting in the recources thread last page.

Also to be honest, the very last picture i posted that is crazy saturated is altered with ''hdr toning '' adjustment in cs5 to get it to be so smooth.

@deerandfox: Thanks. Glad you like it :)

@shamandalie:thank you.

@mindwrack: yeah you're right. i feel like there are some really important fundamentals of environmental painting i do not understand yet. thanks for the advice :)

@Lumens: :D thanks for the hint, i will definately take a look at it.
btw... just read trough the rgb tutorial/analysis you postet in your threat. amazingly interessting stuff! thanks a lot!
