René Aigner's Sketchbook
Lovely sketchbook! I think I know your name/work from somewhere..must be deviantart..
I read that you're selftaught - where did you learn to do those nice construction drawings?
The last environment is great, I really like the overcast atmosphere :)

Every feedback is appreciated!
Thanks Lyraina!
I learned how to construct forms in 3D space from Scott Robertson's excellent GNOMON DVDs (basic form constructiuon/ how to draw aircraft/hovercraft/cars). There's also his newest books coming out soon (how to draw, how to render, how to design), "How to draw" will be shipped in november. Excellent stuff.

The plane designs are really professional, even the lineweights match up.
Also your environment rendering skills are badass.

Thanks a lot crackedskull!

A bit of old-school perspective (elevation conversion):

Might come in useful when drawing from blueprints I think.

Really inspiring technique and rendering for your environments! Really inspires me to want to do more of my own ;D A lovely thing to hear for both of us!

Thanks a lot Adzerak! I'm always glad to hear people say that looking at my work makes them want to create art.

This is WIP:

Man, these are juicy! Absolute fantastic vehicles :)

Aw yeah, you're over here too. Subcribed to the thread!
I'm going to get into landscapes soon, these are a great inspiration (:
Respect for the amount of work you do, looking at the fact that you're still studying at a university.
Keep it up.

nice loving the brush strokes in your work alot of energy

Eraiasu, Budgie, nufftalon; Thanks so much people! I really appreciate your kind words =)

This is final, tried to keep some of the original roughness/dynamic:

Great work in here Rene, the bg and perspective stuff is lookin top notch. I see you did some human model drawing a page back, would be cool to see you do some character concepts as well, if possible.

Thanks a lot Dennis. You're absolutely right. I realized that I was spinning my wheel the last few days, doing those enviros. It was fun but I didn't learn terribly much doing it... I hate it when I do that to myself, repeating stuff I've done lots of times before just because it feels "easy". Damn. Will get into character design next, keep working at the stuff I suck at instead of repeating stuff I feel comfortable doing.
