quick 20 min sketch w/o reference
Great atmosphere! Nothing to crit specifically. Maybe take a thumbnail or study and push it to a higher level of fidelity/finish?
@Mel1710 - I agree, I've been working from photographs that very general lighting.
from photo reference, about 2 hours.
Nice mark making in all of your work. Your greyscale studies and these recent color enviros are really nice. I would say your face study is the weakest of the work you've shown so far, so maybe spend...
Yup I would construct/draft as much underneath before moving to paint, I think it's always best to do as much underlying construction as possible because it makes the whole thing sit better. Though,...
Great studies! I think it would be beneficial to try to blend a little bit more in your longer pieces. In #52, for example, the rendering around the arm almost starts to look a little bit striped. I...
You are definitely improving! Keep it up. No specific crits, i think the more you do enviro studies the more tights your color palettes will become.
Really nice sketchbook! Love your environments, your renderings, and your color palettes. Really great stuff! Just have some small crits: I think in your faces, you might want to consider where the...
From reference: this video with great lighting http://vimeo.com/63602119#
What kind of composition? Like landscapes (try Ansel Adams - photographer) or figurative work?
Figure drawing from life.
No reference. ~45min
Of course! Drawing people waiting at a crosswalk makes so much sense! And you get to be indoors to avoid cold weather! Yeah, I've never had a problem with drawing people in public either, most people...
If you are going to keep working on the last one: her pose looks strange because you need to transition the twist from her upper body to lower body: you need to pull her left hip forward and possibly...
phenomenal sketchbook. a treat to look though! :)
figure drawing from life from the last three weeks
Love all the gestures you are doing!
You might try blending a little bit more in your studies: the semi-transparent way in which you are layering your darks and lights start to give your people's...
Beautiful figures! Very lyrical.
hand sketches from life.
fungi from photo reference.
Nice accuracy in your work.
Do a page or two of quick hand studies whenever you sit down to draw!
Great sketchbook and variety of work you are producing. I don't have a ton of feedback, mostly you are addressing anything i would bring up.
This is pretty subjective: in...
I think with your latest post, the alien figure has a lot of detail to his anatomy/structure, but lacks a strong silhouette/ focal point in terms of structure. For example, if you were to fill him in...
Nice color palettes in these environments. They're really cohesive and help both lead the eye around the space and set the mood effectively.
Nice sketchbook! You have a great sense of modeling surfaces in your paintings.
Really nice life gesture drawings. They are very communicative. Did you do these in a park or a shopping mall? I'm...
