kalasfina grejor! MADE måste ha varit schuuuukt nice btw! inte ett dugg avundsjuk.
your Chow lead me here again. My favourite father time design of the bunch!

I'm always looking forward to more!
Hi Johannes from Sweden!!
You're really rocking it This one is gorgeous.
In this one http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c3.../Fighter20.jpg the only thing that bugs me is that there are no folds on the sweatshirt and almost none on the trousers, making the jeans look like tights. Some folds would add some texture to the piece and therefore some "realism"
Great work man!!

The Spaniard's Sketchbook... No holds barred
Great cartoon rendering. Their expressions are pro work really (reminds me of Warner's productions like "El Dorado" etc). Father Time really unique wiyh the long beard and the blue body. Keep up!

Thanks everybody! You guys are great! =D
And it was great fun meeting you Quike! Thanks for you input. I was truly going for something more stylized, but I agree with you that some more folds would have been great. Those pants sure are tight
I should probably do some videotutorial or something to give back to the community. I remember watching a video by "Chuck, mate" like 4 years ago. It really helped me get started with digital illustration.
So, at made, my old classmate, and friend Dennis Chan, currently drawing environments at crytek, gave me the advice to study lighting and mood to help with my expression. It is great advice. Back at university he told me to stop drawing cartoony stuff and focus on realism for a while. Awesome. I love that guy Soo, getting started on using movie still frames as ref. Intend to do many, many more.

I will also be at GDC Europe and Gamescom in Cologne, as a representative of our game development studio. Maybe see some of you there =) We´ll have a booth together with Nordic Game.
Take Care, thanks for watching
Fail? Fail? Damn if my doodles looked that good I'd be bouncing off the walls.
Really like those movie stills too; the texture and colours are lovely
Awesome work. Keep it up!

I´m going to get a bit wordy now. If you don´t like words, you can scroll down and see some pictures
My friends girlfriend asked me for some advice on how to become a better illustrator and make it into the games industry. I thought maybe I´d share my thoughts on the subject, since I´ve gotten the question a few times. Here goes!:
First off, I try not to give too much advice, since what I know works for me, and I don´t know which effect it will have upon others. Also I´ve only been in the industry for like 2 years. I implore you to use your own common sense, and be critical of what I say. I hold no truths, only thoughts which have helped me. ”One mans bread, is another mans poison”, or something like that. I´ve been given bad advice many times. So take that which works for you and leave the rest. I think everyone needs to figure stuff out for themselves.
Of course you can succeed in becoming an artist in the games industry! All it takes is passion, dedication and tons of work! And also the ability to embrace and accept rejection and criticism over and over again, and remain enthusiastic. I´ve had my share of rejections, and I´m absolutely sure there are many more in store for me ”Quit now, give up, you´re never going to make it” is great advice. If you can hear that, and still keep on going, you´ve got the right mentality. If I´m ever offered a teacher position, I´m going to tell all my students to quit and give up.
And art of course is a very general discipline. Your skills could be applicable in commercials, web-design and moviemaking etc. The competition is tough, of course, but with the right mental attitude and hard work, there´s nothing that can stop you.
Now, from looking at your art, I can tell that you´re well above average of people your age, I´m sure you´ve had straight A:s in art class. You´ve got good things going on! Now, that being said, in my opinion, you´ve got plenty of things to work on before you´ll be attractive for the entertainment art industry. (don´t worry, you´re still very young, I started taking art seriously at the age of 19) I´ll not critique your artworks individually, but rather try and give you some guides on what I think you could work on in general, and some tips.
Don´t be overly concerned with making pretty pictures. In drawing new things you´ll find artistical growth faster, but drawing new things will inevitably lead to failures and genreal ugliness. ”If you´re not making mistakes, you´re not working on hard enough problems”
I personally love it when I´m making mistakes.
Whatever you draw, it can always be better. As illustrators we can never be good enough. There are always new things to learn. Acepting this fact is a huge freedom for me.
Study the fundamentals. Knowing how to draw details and anatomy is all good, but it´s not worth anything without the proper tools of description. I can wholeheartedly recommend ”The Drawing Manual” by Glenn V. Vilppu. It´s been the single most important book in regards to my artistical growth. (I´ve even got a signed one at home. My most prized posession).
The book ”drawn to life” by walt Stanchfield is extraordinary. Real eyeopener. It´s fantastic, you should read it.
Look at art. A lot. Different sorts of art too.
”Can you find fault in this?” is a very good question. I use it daily.
Have fun! It´s important to keep drawing. Drawing ugly pictures and doing studies can be tedious. Make sure to have fun!

Listen to and respect other people. As the guy says in ”Barton Fink” - that´s the problem with you people, you don´t fucking listen”, or something like that
It´s good to hang around people who share your interest in art. Join a forum where you can share and recieve constructive critisism. Conceptart.org has been a great experience for me.
I don´t mean to sound too harsh, so you know, keep your chin up, keep on drawing, study and work hard and there´s no stopping you. You´re on the right track, and have got good things going on! Follow your dreams and have fun!
Yeah, art stuff now. Planning on maybe joining this week´s Chow.
