Just dropping in for a quick update- I'm working on a larger version of my thumbnail in photoshop in B&W
Hey bitjokey, post that larger version before you go much further.
Hey guys, just created a new video tutorial for all of you. This one is on how to create a custom rock or stone brush in photoshop and use it when creating concept environments that include mountains, rocks, etc. Hope you like it. Please subscribe to my channel
Sorries.. i have been pretty busy these recent days. I'm trying to make some extra money to buy a new Pc or a Mac(I really need it). but i'll try to get the larger version for this friday.
Thanks for the tutorial! i'm gonna watch it now !
No problem, Since we all live in different parts of the U.S. and or country, I'm not sure how that live stream gonna work? Even though we can set a date, not sure if all of us can attend?
Here's my updated thumb so far.
I'm working on smoothing out the sketch lines, and then I want to darken the foreground.
I've also got a few things posted from my landscape painting class in my sketchbook.
Are you using any references? I believe that perspective of your houses don't match the overall perspective of the field. Straighten up your edges of those houses. But in case you have an image/reference, post it here. Another thing I'm noticing is that your shadows do not match. When you look at the trees, shadow falls straight to the left, which means sun comes from the right. When you look at the houses, shadows do not follow this rule but rather as if the sun moved around maybe 5 o clock and it's coming from the bottom right. I would also add other trees following the road to fill up the empty space and lead your eye more to the house.
Hey guys, long time no chat. I want to check if you guys have anything new? I'm currently not home but when I get back, I'll be making a new video tutorial and I'll post it on my youtube account so u guys can see how I do things.
Sorry for the long delay; I've been sidetracked working on a poster for a play that I promised. That's out of the way now, so I'm back on this project.
Damjan, to answer your earlier questions, I did have a photo that gave me the idea but I wasn't following it exactly and can't remember where I saved it. I'll keep looking and if I find it I'll post it.
I'm working on redrawing the sketch, paying more attention to the perspective. I'll post it up once I've got the lines done.
Edit: Here's the sketch.

Ok cool, I didn't mean to follow it exactly but establishing the correct perspective separates amateur peace from the professional. Hey when u go to my tutorial blog, there is one post where you can download a perspective brush and use that to help you out. http://conceptartmasters.blogspot.com/
I know that things are slow, maybe some of you gave up because of the busy schedule? Here is a new short video tutorial how to paint a rock and use a photo as a texture. It's not as realistic as possible or that much great but it gets the point across and that's what counts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hd4QIY9R7t8
I would like this thread to be closed due to no one willing to show up and post their work. Thanks to all.
darn it im late. now who is willing to teach me??
If you buy the dies and shell holder RCBS. I might be able to help you out. I would only show you the starting loads first, then you can get the idea how to do i yourself. What city do you live in?
Hey guys, since Not many people were interested in learning here, I have a second best if not better solution. Here is a website that I've dedicated to 100% free Concept Art Tutorials. It's a collection from around the net created by industry professionals. I put all of that in one place so that you don't have to go around the net searching for these things.
Thanks for the website!
But I'm with Matt_Matt, willing to take on another student? Tutorials are great but they can only go so far I think.
Dana's HUNGRY LIKE A WOLF sketch blog
Hey guys, I see that this thread is still number one under this category. How many of you would like to try this again?
I would like to try, but posting is an issue, with my older "smart phone" (not the site's fault). If I were to send pieces via email, that is do-able. My blog is here: http://macimagery.blogspot.com so please ket me know how best to take part...

Can I ask a question here about the picture above really good how did you get all those pick lines going thru the paper like that and not int he final drawing. I really like how it looks everything kinda matchs up perfectly! which is cool any idea on how I could try and do that with the lines?
This week i'm finishing some project and from the next week im gonna have life again !

Hey guys if there is room for 1 more please let me join. I warn you. I am a beginner. I know the basics of perspective and i dont know anything about colors.
Well well, interesting, abit late though haha, let me know if there is space for me DAMJAN

-We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
-Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em.
Hey guys, sorry I haven't visited this area in a while. Now since I see that there are more interested, we can go ahead and continue. Tell me what you guys want to learn. We can vote on what to do first.
lokispec23, were you asking me a question? If so, which image are you talking about?
I know there are those waiting in line but if you're starting up this shindig again, can I hop on?
Damjan, i'm personally ok with starting with whatever you feel would be most adequate for a beginner. If it comes down to themes, I personally prefer urban/sci-fi environments, but i'm not exactly picky. I'll try to learn whatever you throw at me ^^.
Yea you 2 can join in. Well every good painting starts off with planing and research. Lets do something simple. Sci-fi environments I think are a little harder for beginners since you are creating stuff that doesn't really exist and on top of that you need to worry about the basics. That said, lets just do a normal every day environment so that you can learn how to execute things properly. Anyways, I want you to create 10 thumbnails so you can practice composition and a little bit of perspective. Then, we are going to research photos as reference for those.
