    The good news is work has finished for the year, so I have a little more time to study. The bad news is it's christmas so all that time will be eaten up anyway.

    I really dig your linear work: the medieval warrior, the Proko studies. You've been posting a lot of speed paints that (I only assume) aren't built on top of underdrawings, and I'm sort of curious to see these talents merge! This piece seems closest to what I picture.
    I admire the way you've set yourself to the speed paints, though.

    Big dump today. I got out of the habit of posting spitpaints thanks to the holidays, but I've still been doing them every day.

    Prompt: Sci-Fi Scientist. Away from home for this one. This was the point when I realised that drawing characters scares me, but it's also something that I'd really like to be better at. I've resolved to focus on drawing them for a little while, even if the results aren't great.

    I feel like my more recent spitpaints are much less imaginative. I'm trying to keep things simple, so that I can focus on technique over narrative, but I still think I could produce some more unique designs than these.

    Anyway crits always appreciated!

    I actually really like this most recent batch, Flay! The "shortcut" one in particular is really whimsical and I think conveys a ton of meaning in a short space. I do feel like some of the character stuff is less dynamic but that's hard to change in a 30-minute spitpaint aside from choosing more dynamic posing out of the gate, which can really complicate your composition. I do think you've really done well in making the format of a spitpaint project (the short time and random subject matter) work well for you, though!

  • LampLamp Registered User regular
    The shortcut one really stood out to me, too. Such a fun idea. I'm really admiring your creative vision on some of these!

  • FlayFlay Registered User regular
    Thanks guys! Yeah I'm not happy with that character stuff, but hopefully it improves with time.

    Anyway I got out of the habit of posting these thanks to new years, but I'm back now:

    Nice to see you back at it. That polar bear nose looks great. It hasn't taken long for these little studies to start improving, I hope you keep it rolling.

    really, really like the tree roots, and the dogwood forest from a few posts back. In general these little paintings are fun.

    The secret door some perspective issues, I cant tell whats supposed to be happening with the ground. You are getting solid concepts down in 30 minutes though, I'm really impressed by the general quality of these thumbnails, it feels like the theme you are trying to get across in each one are clearly represented.

    I cant remember if you are gunning for some particular type of work? Are you just in general improvement mode, at the moment?

  • FlayFlay Registered User regular
    Cheers Iruka. I'm gunning for a career as a concept artist for games, but I don't have the portfolio to start applying yet. Keep getting distracted from making something refined

    I've been doing a bunch of 30-45 min film studies lately (part of my digital painting class), but I haven't been posting them because they're honestly pretty bad. I feel like I'm starting to make some progress though.

    Here's week 1

    Oh thats right, I forgot that you're at school.

    It's super hard to put out portfolio worthy work when you are in the middle of trying to gain a lot of basic skills a once. Everyone has times when they are studying and not really putting out their most refined work, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    If it's not part of your course work, though, I'd really recommend at least starting to write down Ideas/Goals for the types of companies you might want to apply to, and what work would help you get with them particularly. One of my own major failings was never spending the time to learn how I could actually fit into the industry and actually pushing myself towards that portfolio on a constant and consistent basis.

    That's a good idea, I did a similar thing a little while ago, but I should go back to it.
