    Default Darukin's Sketchbook

    Hi All.

    I figured my works are too much all over the place,
    so I also decided to open a sketchbook thread, where I will
    place some of my older and newer works, but make an all in
    one thread like others have done which is why I got this idea.

    So here goes, this is my sketchbook thread, I will start with an introduction
    and add some older works which I had already posted before as well as
    newer ones. Then, any new works I that make I will add here hopefully.

    Hope you like my works anyhow.

    Dear god, Darukin, you're only 18?
    I've seen some of your pieces before, but i had no idea...
    I'm in awe and very VERY excited about what you'll do in the future.

    Will be watching!!!

    How do you model those small, precise details, like the designs on the armor?

    Thanks for your replies guys, much appreciated! It's your encouragement
    that helps me go on, and crits as well which I thrive on.

    Yeah I'm 18 =) and I only realize now how much I love this
    hobby more than anything else after taking Computer Science
    lol because I also liked programming, but Computer Science sucks
    for me lol I should have taken a Graphics course like at Gnomon or something.

    Either way, if I can do this stuff, anyone can, regardless of age,
    it's all about determination and effort, I'm not exactly gifted
    or talented, you should see some of the rubbish I used to create
    lol, this is just a thread with all the crap I made cut out. But
    hopefully I'm evolving and getting better =)

    I still have confidence issues with my works though heh.

    Either way, I'm just so busy at uni to be able to create new works
    it's so annoying, so might be a while till my next work.
    Hence most of this was last year's work.

    nero5150, fine details were mostly sculpted with standard brush and alpha,
    or stencil mode on surfaces (alphas made in photoshop or downloaded,
    stencils made to fit shape of surface in photoshop also).

    Also much of it is stitch brush with alpha and with lazy brush and then
    refining afterwards with smooth pinch clay etc.

    Thanks again for the great encouragement, my art skill development thrives
    on it also!

    "I'm not exactly gifted
    or talented"

    You're right about the hard work and practice, it takes that too. But you're also very gifted and talented. To be doing this quality work at age 18 is incredible. I went to art college and there were many people there that worked for years and could not achieve the results that you have here. So you're blessed with talent that many people wish they had. If you went to an art school I think you'd probably grow into an amazing artist.

    Actually scratch that, you probably wouldn't even need to waste thousands of dollars on a 4 year degree. But the fundamentals of art are helpful, stuff like color theory, design, etc. Although it looks like you've got that down as well lol. Something like clothed figure drawing would help. I think the folds in your fabric are one thing that could improve.
