I get it. We all have to build up our visual library. That’s why we get stuck getting good at drawing the same things over and over again. If you find yourself drawing clouds the same way piece after piece, you’ve gotta work on that head library of yours.
So here’s a little solution I’ve come up with at least environment-wise. What better way to build up the good ol’ VL than to look at the world around us. No landscape is truly alien (Prometheus - Iceland). So why not look around? How? Google Streetview.
That’s right. Im going to be forcing myself to draw more kinds of biomes using this exercise. And I won’t get to choose because Mapcrunch is going to do the work for me.
So come on! Let’s get better together and join in! Everyone is welcome at every skill level.
Trying to light my characters more interestingly.

Hey, thanks for taking the time to send me a message.
Well, my name is Kenn Yap. I’m 19 and I work as a freelance concept artist in Singapore. I work alone but I do so in the presence of some of my artist friends and we give each other feedback which is great.
