Gotham 2.0

Trying to keep the wacom pen going and putting some of my personal ideas on "paper". This concept was made to pre-visualize a possible matte painting. My main concern with these sketches is the overall composition,  mood and atmosphere. Details are secondary. The second one shows a view from a lower angle, different time a day and other atmospheric conditions.

The following are a couple of concept sketches I did for a commercial pitch a year or so ago. I tried to set a mood for the script in hand, not focusing so much on details. The project was (as far as I know) never completed. Reasons unknown.

Speedpaintings

Posted: February 28th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Speedpaintings | No Comments »

These are some of the personal speedpaintings I've done a good while ago and i thought i would wipe the dust of them and put them up here aswell. A speedpainting is basically a sketch done in a relatively short period of time, in this case anywhere between 20-40 min. Often this is how basic concept art is done before I go on to do a full matte painting. I always try to focus on composition, light, color and mood when doing these. Details are secondary. I often do these in a small format as its faster so i apologize for the quality on some of the pictures since I've scaled them up a  bit.
