Nice to see another Hokie on here.

 

For a first year student your stuff is great - better than 3/4's of the seniors in my graduating class. The fact that you've been drawing this much in your first year gives you a very strong head start.

 

Your ballpoint pen stuff is the strongest of your work, the digital stuff is a little crazy but thats OK - you've got 3 more years to work on that stuff.

 

For some of your marker stuff, it almost looks like you're trying to marker render really small thumbnail sketches and it's making them look a bit messy. One of the keys for a lot of marker stuff is on small drawings use very little - a couple quick strokes to define material breakup works great. If you want to do a more complete rendering draw very large and then scan it in and scale it down. If you're drawing on a big 11x17 marker pad it makes those little ares where you go out of the lines less of an issue, and also makes any marker bleed less apparant.

 

Nice stuff though, if you crank out a couple pages a day for the whole summer you'll have a portfolio ready before you even begin doing any real design (yes thats right - first year architecture projects don't count as real design. :P

this isn't ID related but I was practicing with marker rendering - then I simply filled the background with black in photoshop.

 

Agree with Cyberdemon, your ballpoint pen stuff is the best. I like it!!

 

This looks like a scene with Trinity from the Matrix, I have seen an almost identicle image form the Matrix book by the Wachowski brothers. Tis cool !

Thank you very much! That's a very good point. I need to use my markers less. I have a bad habit of over coloring when it comes to markers -- you'll seizure if you see some of my other stuff. I will work on filling in a lot less. I guess this is also good since it will make the markers last longer huh? haha, it's also good because I just blew 300 dollars last week on a 72setC of copics and copic marker paper.

 

on a side note -- if you guys get materials from dickblick.com go open a free account with ebates.com. they will give about 6% cash back from there. I spent 320 bucks total (72 set C Copic Sketch markers, 12 Verithin Indigo Blue Pencils, and 11 by 16 copic marker paper) and I got 20 dollars back plus free shipping. 20 bucks is 20 bucks. That's another 50 to 100 sheets of marker paper, or 3 more copic markers, or a crap load of BIC ball-point Ultra's.

 

...check out my babies: it's like 72 different iPods...love at first sight?

Thanks Skint! Yeah, I guess it is identical. Oh well, it's not the most original of poses anyways.

Hi, those car sketches are pretty impressive and i like the perspective on the motorbike. Nice form on the powerdrill too! 1st year?! :S

 

Agreed. I did not get sense of perspective, colouring and curves this nice even in my fifth year...

Than I have to comfort myself by telling people how mind of design is important other than variety of skills themselves.

Chainsaw revisited...

 

and btw guys, I will be updating my website every now and then. You might find the "Interesting Links" and "Supplies" section helpful (links to low cost supplies) -- and for those of you who are experienced, feel free to comment/contact me about anything you feel should be added to the list of links, etc...

I hope I can at least have my website set up as a good reference/starting point for kids looking forward to a career like ours. I will be linking youtube tutorials in the "multimedia" section eventually, so that should be nice.

 

ttyl guys! Been having a weak sketching run recently, hopefully I will bounce back this week.
