Default Some...pictures... Loz made 'em D:

First off, this is a WIP of a picture intended for my CV.
My CV is going to be styled like an old PC game, in a big box with a floppy boot disk and examples of my artwork in the manual, with the actual CV itself and my working examples on disk. (I'm...hoping...to go into Game Level Design)



EDIT: Here's the bare link if you can't see it here:
http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...2/CVcover2.png

The cover itself was based loosely on some old Commodore 64 covers I had knocking about, which were crazy fantastic.
Obviously, my attempt at a cover is still in dire need for some more refinery.
Let me know what you guys think, should any colours be changed? Should I make it lighter/darker? Should I add more detail or keep it simple? etc.

Otherwise, I'm not sure If I ever linked my Elfwood here, but if you guys wanna see some of my work, you can have a gander:

http://www.elfwood.com/art/l/a/latkinson/latkinson.html

Bare in mind though, that I haven't updated this gallery with new material for well over 5 years now.
I'd recommend starting your viewing with the Jester. Since I believe that's one of my personal bests.

Ho hum!

Also, if anyone has any old blank (preferably black) PC game boxes going spare, drop me a line :P I need to get my hands on around 5-10 more if I can.

I stick pencils up my nose and sneeze them out; art appears!

You had a very fine idea for your CV!
Sadly, I'm not able to see the pic in your message...

However, your drawings at elfwood are good: I just wonder how much you improved yourself in 5 years...

Very nice! I would really like to see stuff like those drawings integrated into a full picture with full background and stuff, that's got to be awesome (like your CV!)

@ Quin: I've stuck the direct link up underneath where the pic should be, not sure if that will work better for you or not.
Suffice to say I really don't think I've improved that much in 5 years. I took a looooong break for a while with the odd doodle here and there and have only really taken up my drawing habits again within the past year or so. My understanding of anatomy has improved a little thanks to some life drawing workshops my uni set up, but other than that....well, it's difficult to tell without me doing a big piece, which I really don't have time for at the moment with all the work I have to do.

@Spoonman: Do you mean that for the CV or for a drawing in general?

Thanks for the comments guys =]
