Default 2D Art Concept/Show Your Stuff

Hey Guys

I think there was a thread a little while back regarding 2d/Concept Art and how people wanted to show their work off. I thought maybe we could start it as a thread that gets made Sticky and then maybe see where it goes from there.

So here we go, this is my effort from a 1hr stint in PS last week with the guys at work, the subject was one word only so I chose 'Nomad'. Everyone who did it came inside the one hour with some great results, anyway I was pleased with mine so I thought Id use it as some concept art for my own project.

Cheers
Jay

This is a good idea for a thread.

I don't have any original maya work to show for the moment, so this is a rough concept sketch for a low poly character that I am planning to start modelling soon.

Sweet, dudes!!!

Jay. You may have created a monster with this thread. I'll bet theres tons of people on here with concept art to share.

Heres my first contribution to the mix. The original sketch was done in pencil probably 6 years ago. I must have spit shined it in photoshop or painter some time after ...

It's not my stuff obviously, but my good buddy Steve Garcia is really good. He did the concepts for both of my books.

Really good sketch - I can definitely see the Jamie Hewlett influence - There is also a cool egyptian thing going on as well - I like the cat sitting on her head!

Come on people - lets get this thread going!!

Excellent stuff

C'MON POST YOUR CONCEPTS good or bad!!!! Surely somebody does some?

or do you all just model from scratch and dont do any prep work?
