Game of thrones studies

Hello there.

Happy CNY to everyone. I am happy to finally have some free time for myself since its holiday!

My teacher in FZD, Kingston Chan ( recently created a group in FB for concept art.

And the upcoming theme would be Game of thrones studies. I am not a big fan of the tv series, I actually gave up after season 1 :p but it really has a very beautiful color/lights/design imho!

Here is my take on it,

please feel free to point out any mistakes or to share tips on doing such studies!

A very cultured friend was telling me about this book she read called desert dawn by Waris Dirie... and I googled it which lead me to the book cover..

I thought she has a nice smile and I really wanted to capture that while trying to learn color (wanted to learn about limited color pallete) so here is my feeble attempt at human portrait after many months. Really feel there is something wrong w the eyes/mouth placement but I cant put my fingers around it.

Food Adventure - Herbtle

I always feel my work is a bit dark so for this time around I tried to avoid total black in value.

Done pre-new year but received some awesome feedback.
 Here is the fixed version. Feel free to give me feedback :)

Tale of Ichi

I had a really cool experience in a 3 day masterclass with Arthur Fong and Tom zhao last year. I really want to learn from them but it was unfortunate that we only had that short amount of time. In the masterclass, we are supposed to do a mini project on a character that is out to take a revenge on a monster that kill his master/father etc. 

I decided to take on japanese influence on this project and from there on, Ichi the samurai boy was born. I imagined him as a naive serious boy who wear his deceased master's helmet (thus the size) who swung his wooden sword around, "training"to one day take revenge on the monstrous Yamata No Orochi.

Reinassance interior

Last year, I was studying some architecture design from Alex Ruiz at CGMA, he is an awesomely nice teacher.

Here is a piece I did for renaissance subject.
