Migno: Concept Art Portfolio
Hi guys, I'm Miguel Nogueira, an aspiring concept artist from Portugal.
I'm finishing my degree on design and multimedia this week, and after that I'll work on my portfolio to focus on concept art.

Here I will show you some of the stuff I'm working on. By the way, I'm very happy to be part of such inspiring forums! Go Gnomon!







More will follow up, as I finish them, these are the pieces from the past 3 months. Critics are very welcome!

Hey Gnomon friends!
Here are some thumbnails I did as test for the project above.
Have a wonderful week!

Last night I took some time to push the painting of one of the drawings I did, using what I learned from color and light and how some colors help portraying a dark mood with the help of value scale, aiming it to high contrast.

I wrote a little story to go with it, like a criminal file, I'll save it for my blog and printed portfolio proposes.

C&C welcome, as always!

This week I took a favorite thumbnail sketch from April and took it to a finished perspective drawing, then, applied the fundamentals of color and light that I've been taught.

Hello guys. This is a druid character development, from a gnomon class and a side help from skillful huntsman from Art Center. 35 minutes tonal drawing for the portrait and some extra minutes derping with gouache. Scanned the costume design and cleaned it a little in PS to get rid of the fuzzy lines from the pencil. Probably will be posting more traditional studies, turned into drawings, if they turn out interesting.

During the past few days, I've been mixing scenarios of low technology with a recent acquisition of high technology, enough to keep the population go on living, and also to keep their historic architecture intact.

Refining a thumbnail set into color, using pure painting and photobash techniques, to experiment which was the best to achieve a end result. These came too illustrative, but I liked them this way.
A set of illustrations/drawings is coming based off this scenario, to flesh out information about the surroundings and the way of life in the town. More info on my blog.
