Thanks for the advice guys. I focusing on painting and color since I dont really do much of it. I did some color studies from photos I took at the museum a while back.

I got a cintiq but need to get a new hard drive before I can get it actually set up. So heres some trad. The last ones studies from the Tactics Ogre book.

Ooh Cintiq huh? that's sound niiice! I recently bought a surface 3 but I'm currently waiting for my pen to arrive so I can start drawing on it.
Those studies are looking nice btw. Master studies are just gold, they've really helped me improve a lot.
and also ink orc <3

How've you been, Adam? You got a Cintiq? :D I like your traditional character sketches in the last post a lot - especially the brush pen ones!


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - meat - 04-23-2016

Thought I'd reply your question here so it's easier for you to see it. Yeah I kind of rubbed elbow with big shots in the game industry. The thing is they don't act or look like big shots - especially if they aren't wearing their name tags - so you could easily and accidentally talk to art director of Epic Games, or the CEO of Crytek. That said, they are big shots, and very busy people, so unless you prepared ways for yourself to be memorable in a good way, don't expect anything to come from that exchange just because you were having such a good time chatting and grabbing drinks together that one night. So in the end it's a very refreshing experience to see how humble and nice many of them are in person.

Glad to hear you're getting out and doing the whole interacting with other humans, meat XP

Stuff from CC2 and a plein air sketch at the beach. I'll be doing more of these building sketches, me thinks.

Oh shit mate, you really have been getting down and dirty with your traditional studies!! Great shit man, really working at your weaknesses! 

How small is that bloody sketchbook you've been drawing faces in?! Looks tiny 
Do you keep it with you all the time when you're out and stuff coz that'd be sweet....a really good idea actually :D

You bloodborne piece still gives me nightmares
I really, really like it... But like... Eugh lmao

sexy energy
'specially the knight dude bottom right! Nice weight and gesture!


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 05-15-2016

Thx, its design studies from tactics ogre art book. I've been hammering figures in perspective to try and fix problems in my approach that were pointed out to me recently. I think I'm starting to make a break through with these environments and figures from my head and some from reference.


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Artloader - 05-15-2016

Great sketchbook Adam! I love how you went out to an art gallery, took some photos and used the for studies. Also, I like your perspective work in this last post - especially the guys standing at 45 degrees to the camera, they look like they really belong in the scene.

Keep going mate!

RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 05-18-2016

Thanks loader!

Cracked, hmmm.

RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - OtherMuzz - 05-18-2016

RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 05-19-2016

Thanks Murry!

RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 05-28-2016

did some stuff


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Jamesxwu - 05-29-2016

nice studies adam, try taking some pieces to a finish. I think some material studies would help the rendering on the illustration for skin, blood and brick of the sorts. Keep pushin!

It's great to see the progress you've had, a lot of dedication ^^ .

In the human body everything is connected, it is like a line that runs through it all, not random lines .

When you make gestures you are following the rhythm of the muscles and not the movement. I hope this helps ^^ .

Thanks guys. Im gonna spend how ever long it takes to learn real construction and stop just faking it.
