    Character_concept_sketches

    Hi all.
    I have been enjoying the sketches uploaded here, so I thought I would share some of my own.
    These are just quick rough character concepts.

    Thanks for your comments guys.
    I spent the last decade learning Lightwave, neglecting my painting and drawing skills somewhat, which is where I started before 3d. So this year I wanted to focus back to drawing and painting.
    Here is an armour study I finished up today.

    Good on you Trevor, nice sketches. Last year I went back to life drawing and portrait painting after more than two decades of 3D. it's hard but well worth it. I'm still rubbish but I can see an improvement. Great for the soul and analyzing what works in images.

    Thankyou Drewblit.
    My imagination and ideas are bigger than my ability to paint them in a convincing manner!
    With that in mind, i'm studying to paint different materials. I put 3 hours into this frog study, I figured it would be beneficial for creature type characters.

    Hey that looks great. I hadn't really thought doing studies of creatures like that. It makes a lot of sense for creature/character reference. I think I may look and doing something along those lines, so keep going Trevor.

    Thanks again Drewblit.
    I worked on some medieval costume stuff today. Two birds with one stone with this one, practice painting folds in cloth, with some conceptual crest and colour ideas.

    Great work Trevor,
    The frog painting for 3 hours is terrific

    Cool, keep at it. As much as I like digital work you just can't beat the feedback from real materials, better on your eyes too, staring at a monitor all day can't be good.

    Here is a female character concept. My first sketches were not working for me. The first one is like, look mum I found a sword The second was better, there is a little attitude in there but not what I was going for.
    The third one was more like it so thats the one I started to render.
    I was going for a calm inner strength.

    Thanks cresshead.
    I find myself at the moment like most artists I guess, struggling that line between what I actually want to draw and paint and what the entertainment industry wants, or worse what I think it wants! I havn't figured that out. Trends in art elude me.

    My dream job would be a concept artist, with that in mind I have been working on vehicle design, enviroments, creatures and characters. I am trying to get better and faster with every waking hour I have free to achieve that goal.

    A new character I have been working on. I am experimenting with new styles in an effort to move away from a digital painted look.
