Lead Concept Artist, Sabin Boykinov finds inspiration in everything, from movies and games, to music or a good book, and is never without his sketchbook to record it all down in. Immerse yourself in those pages of his fantasy filled sketchbook!
For me sketching is the best way to record ideas and develop my drawing skills. Drawing is also a way for me to relax from the digital work I create with the rest of my time.
Inspiration and Ideas
My inspiration comes from almost everything- a great book, movie, mountain hiking or song title.
Music is a powerful source of inspiration for me. Playing games is another great source of visual research and professional development. It is so interesting to see how my favourite concept art is transferred in to the actual game.
I don't have really specific set of favourite materials because I like to experiment with everything I find in the local supplies shop. Mostly I use mechanical pencils like HB, B2 B4 with no specific brand.
My technique is really simple. I start with the overall composition idea, then add forms and shadow balance. Finally, I add some details.
