Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
So I see a thread for sketchbooks has been made. Good... good >:} :D

Anyways, so now I feel I can present myself properly. I'm Alex, originally from a small country called Bulgaria, now studying Graphic Design in Denmark. Along with that I am trying to become better at art every single day for it is my dream to one day make a living out of it.

Enough about this, though. Here's a link to my alternate sketchbook in ca.org just if you're interested to see what kind of progress I made in the past year: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=266542

Here are some recent studies that can also be found above, but I just want to test the image system here:









And so in the future I will also be posting my crap here. I would very much appreciate any kind of crits. Thank you and onward! :)

RE: Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
Awesome studies ! The Sketchbooks Forum was a great idea :D
RE: Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
Jorisvanleeuwen: Yeah it's good to have it :)

So I've asked some people for feedback on the so called "forest guardian" that I did and basically everybody thought the setting was underwater and that the guardian looked more like an alien exploring the fauna. When I looked at the work a second time I saw what they mean and it's pretty true, so I started trying to improve it.

Here's the first rough iteration where I try to solve the problem with the underwater feeling by defining the background and adding more appropriate plants:

Some studies and a piece that never made it to my CAS gallery







This one was supposed to be a 1h character concept with tags merfolk and genderless or something, but I lost my self in it and didn't relly notica when the time was up aand also the genderless part didn't really work so yeah :D
RE: Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
Ooh, more art! Nice stuff! It's too bad you forgot the time with that merman. He looks really cool, even if the genderless part did not work out that well. I think the fin on his head looks a bit too much like a plastic accessory, though. The both the shapes and textures look too erm... geometric I guess?

The other two look pretty cool as well. Of those I like the savanna the most. Nice and sketchy, yet very clear what you meant. :)
RE: Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
Thanks! Yeah you definitely have a point about those fins man. They really bug me too. I also received some critiques about the dude's face being not relaxed enough in some parts. I'll try to come up with iterations soon :D
RE: Alex Meets The Vikings... Again
Latest shiz I've been working on. I feel there are a lot of mistakes but oh well I tried to fix everything I could find.
