I took a pass at your concept. Things I changed:
1) linework, looser, more expressive, more dynamic perspective
2) light metal body, just a few strikes of cool grey 20% and 30% with a little bit of britany blue and cool grey 70%
3) lens, cool grey 70%, sharpie, and white pencil
4) back housing, orange, use marker lightly to get gradation
Give some of those things a try in your next one.
That last one looks much more fluid and fun! The very first one was a good sketch, but I wouldn't worry so much about the shadows being a bit off (I hadn't noticed until I read it!). I think bringing in some stronger grays into the contours would do a lot to make the cameras curved form pop from the page.250gb wrote: I enjoyed this sketch much more than the others and seemed to worry less about making mistakes, or things exactly right.
