It depends on how to look at it, but the perspective has to be consistent.
It would probably be easier to make the tank into the same perspective as the environment. (Use the horizon line of the...
The house and the tank converge to different horizon line than the environment which makes it look strange and tilted.
Based on the tank, the horizon line is at the bottom of the frame, while you...
Very nice. Great start of a sketchbook. Can't wait to see more.
Keep it up ^^
Have you thought about adding more life? People, animals, plants? Perhaps I'm taking it too literally here :-p
Gather reference and look at different materials and colors. Pay more attention to...
You ask about light. http://www.huevaluechroma.com/ Read this twice. It's heavy text, but good text.
This of course it's about realistic lighting, but realistic lighting is also common in anime and...
CassandreBolan: Your painting made me think of this fantastic painting by Frederick Arthur Bridgman:
It needs to foreshorten more as it gets further away. You're not utilizing all the space you got.
It's a common mistake when doing it by eye.
I recommend to setup the perspective complete with...

Wow. There is so much awesomesauce in this skechbook it's soaking wet.
Oh, I noticed the helmet you tried to make out of paper. Pretty cool. Have you ever tried the software Pepakura? It...
I agree with Jeff:
It should be a piece of cake to construct the cast shadow. If in doubt you could make a 3D model.
Please give the image below some time to load.
I don't know if you're aware,
but I think your ellipses are too square.
I really like those Bridgman studies though.
The form is good and the lines flow.
Apply what you learned about line...
Seriously good pencil drawings, man!
Those old, small tanks are awesome. I can image your drawings in a history book.
Keep up the good work!
The Adar Llwch Gwin bathhouse was built by the King. He idolized the creatures and wanted to give them the best. The Adar Llwch Gwin were griffin-like birds which were a part of the King's personal...
Jarkuzy: You need to raise the horizon line waayy up. Either that or redraw everything else. The perspective was better in the previous version. You have a really cool design going on though. Looking...
Okay, I'm sorry if I stepped on your toes. I'll keep working on the character then, while you finish the environment. :)
Apropos the character, I'd really appreciate it if anyone would come with...
That foreground wasn't working for me, so I tried to change it. It also seemed too empty at the left hand side so I moved stuff around. I hope I didn't make it worse haha.
Hey guys! I found a bunch of images of an existing carousel during restoration work:
Press "Newer/Older" to see more images.
Her skin would catch bounce light from the white surface.
The hair has a very hard edge. A soft edge will look more natural.
Her pupil is not in the center of the iris.
Sure thing. Will do later.
Photoshop. I use the animation window (window-->animation) and layers that turn on and off. Then I go File-->Save for Web & Devices and save as .gif animation.
Obstfelder: Yeah, a small screen can also be an advantage because it forces you to think about the whole picture. And it's great for quick sketches on trips etc.
Cabbage Caterpillar: Cheers.
Should I call it finished?
I know it's missing a way to power the thing, but I'm too tired of the thing to add more stuff, hehe.
Are the animations too distracting?
How's the presentation? Is it...
AdrianNagorski: It looks like he's sitting on the wasp's head and is about to fall off. I think it will help to place the guy closer to the wings. The wasp's head looks way cooler this time around....
