My name is Kjell Bunjes and I'm currently living in Germany. I am interested in 2D Game Art and also Coding. This profile has been in use since Winter 2009 and grown ever since. I appreciate the interest that the ModDB community has shown up to here and I hope to inspire even more people out there. You can get notifications about my updates, if you click on the track-button on the right-hand side. Whenever you have a question, don't hesitate to write me a private message, I usually respond within 10 hours (except for weekends). At last, I hope that everyone has a great time and enjoys what he or she is currently doing in life.

User Posted ImageUser Posted Image...have to be set!

The co-leader of Mindworld: Shattered Dreams and I have just decided to cancel the project. I currently don't have the time nor the energy to continue the leadership of the project. The priority definitely is set on uni at the moment.

In my free time I recently did a little bit of painting again, but nothing worth showing. In addition, I'm working on a little dice game, which I'm coding in java. Also, my girlfriend and I are working on refactoring a java project, which we did for uni. This means that we want to write the code again from scratch, because we learned a lot in the process and now we want to clean it all up and publish it for android on google play. It's going to be a little logic puzzle game, but stay tuned for more.

Otherwise, I'm doing vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator, which you can see in my gallery and some 3D stuff for uni, but I'm not that interested in CAD anymore. The most interesting thing to learn for me at the moment is java, because it's quite easy to understand and even with basic knowledge, you can pull off some little games.

I'm going to open up a games page when a project reaches around 80-95% of completion.

cheers.

It's not my main goal, as I'm not sure what to become at all. But, right now it looks like I'm going to get into the industry one day, yeah. However, not as a lead designer or concept artist, but rather as a small unknown programmer, as that's what my studies in college are going to aim at. Why are you asking?

How's it going iQew? I would like to ask you something.

If you ever got the time, would you mind taking a look at some of my work in my CA sketchbook and maybe give me some crits and advice on how to improve my art? You seem to know A LOT about art and such, so that's why im asking you.

Of course, i understand if you are to busy, but I guess you can always try to ask anyway. =)

Hey Dennis,

I had another look at your latest art and I must say that you're really improving, keep it up! Your latest photostudy is quite amazing it shows that you have both anatomical knowledge and also know the techical part about digital painting. However, you seem to have a tendency to use a soft brush very often when it comes to rendering and/or using a low oppacity for the brush. I highly recommend that you do some more photostudies and ONLY use hard brushes (not a single soft brush anywhere) and only at 100%!! Also, do NOT use ctrl+z and NO eraser. All of this should happen on only ONE layer.

This exercise comes from traditional painting and is damn difficult. The reason why you're using a soft brush and such things is because it makes work easier. However, when you look at current masters of digital painting, you will notice that none of them is using a soft brush as their main tool. That's because it's absolutely not necessary and only makes sense in some little parts. However, DON'T understand this is "you never ever use that soft brush again", I just mean that you include 2-3 studies each day with a set timelimit from yourself in your daily routine.

When it comes to learning concept art it's a good exercise to set up a clock and see how much time you require per painting. It makes time consuming methods and parts of your routine very obvious and most artist can improve a lot in time management quickly with this method (we use it in-house, too).

It's great that you're doing many sketch sessions and only focus on the important lines, definitely keep that up, it's a must! Also, it's really great that you do both photo studies and paintings from your mind. However, I think that your skills are good enough to specify your photo studies. This means that you don't just randomly pick some beautiful photographies from now on, but focus on certain light atmospheres (direct light, bounce light, diffused light, natural light, artifical light sources etc.) to get a better understanding of how light works. The same would go for color studies. You can also start with learning color theory and do some specific exercises belonging to that.

The last thing I noticed is that you're mainly drawing very fit people, which most people do. It's great to see all the anatomy, the muscles and all of that, but don't just exclusively draw and paint those. Have also a look around for very big women and men to see how their body fat sits on the body. Draw some normal people, some body builders and some big people.

However, in total you're definitely on the right track, you don't have to worry about that and you're clearly improving! Keep up the good work!

Best wishes
Kjell

Thank you so much for the excellent crits iQew! Reading it was quite amasing and really opened up my eyes for a lot of stuff!

I will keep it all in mind from now on, and do the studies you've recomended! Thanks again! :)
