    Great progress I've looked through the entire sketchbook. Really starting to shine. I think that for you to take the next step it's time for some long fully fleshed out pieces, meaning 10-12 hour imagination concepts/illustrations. You have the knowledge now PUSH for that beautiful finish that comes with hours and hours of work. The bright side is that after you to a few of those 10-12 hours ones youll be able to do it in 8 hrs, and so on.

    Overall though, great everything.

    Rob Powell - Missed that one, which I really hate. I'll be joining plenty of times from now on though!
    Domd - I like to alternate between the two, thanks!
    Angel Intheuk - Haha, yeah it's a fun style. I like the Warhammer artwork quite a bit. Used to paint miniatures too.
    NickyBeats - I wish! But thanks for the support. Also, it's not Ecorche (I didn't know the name before, so thanks ), but some nude photograph.
    GenomeKilla - Yeah that's something I tend to struggle with. I start a lot of sketches but very few get finished. I might like it more if I get a little better at rendering.
    zou - Yes it is! I'm progressing too slow, which I don't like. The statues are a great exercise though.


    Think I got most of my computer issues fixed. Updates have been a little irregular because I'm doing too many things at the same time. Trying to work on a schedule now.

    Starting with some more statues. Referenced from gypsum copies at the Allard Pierson museum.
    I've been testing some different approaches lately. The last couple are done with compressed charcoal. In an effort to get better at values...

    For this weeks Creature of the Week. The topic was a dragon species where the hatchlings use a type of camouflage. I went with a thorny plant theme.

    vshen - Not sure, I usually risk losing the values when I go in to render :|

    Just quick concept sketches. first couple were from a previous CoW challenge (creature composed of fire+ice), the robots were for a mech-themed challenge.

    Next up will be a finished piece though!

    CraneWife13 - I won't let you down! much more coming.
    Saraiva - Hah, I could use a lot more progress. Every step counts though.
    limsh - Thanks! Wasn't easy but I'm not unhappy with that one. Although it could use a finishing touch.


    Working on another C.o.W. entry. This weeks topic is a horror version of either a pegasus/unicorn/hippocampus.

    heyyy

    didn't knew you were back ! u should have notified me >:
    anyway you posting great stuff, (u made clear progress)

    so many work to comment, i will comment the last one:

    it's more suggestion than crit:

    the base of the neck is usually larger in horses, (or make the top of neck slimmer)

    to freakin it more: u could make his mouth open, and bones appearing on a part of his body (torso ?)

    glad to see your work again (ssg still alive)

    Hah, well no worries there.

    You definitely captured the horses well in your sketches, both with body structure and the movement. Animals can be difficult to capture (at least I find it so) so keep it up.

    eclip-se - Needs more! speedpaints after this.
    - nat - - Ha! I need to plan my updates a bit better. I tend to end up with big piles of sketches. At that point I usually no longer feel like posting, or I forget about previous paintings.
    zou - Yeah, lets blow some life into this sketchbook support group again, shall we? Those are some good points on the horse. Actually I had already changed the mouth the way you described it. The bones would have been a good touch, I agree. Would have been a better design. Right now only the head is skeletal...
    CraneWife13 - The good thing about drawing animals is that their anatomy is very similar to human anatomy. Especially with mammals. Things may have changed over time, the basics are very much alike.


    Ok, finished the CoW piece and did an IDW right after ("Poseidons Trident"). Didn't have much time for that one. I liked the challenge though so I'll probably participate more often.

    Hi Anthis

    your horse entry is getting better

    just keep going (render a bit of clouds ?)


    water spear is great , your rendering is always great. i'm sure you would do very good hyper-realistic work.

    the SP is awesome too ! i like the values and colors,portraits are getting better

    nothing to crit for now

    take care

    Thanks Zou! I think I just need lots of practice with digital studies in full colour.

    I'd like to do a vehicle design, and make a good portfolio piece out of it. Aiming for a sci-fi reconnaissance/exploration jeep. Not necessarily military, but it does have to look robust. Trying to get an interesting shape with a variety of materials.

    Starting off with sketches!

    NickyBeats - Haha, I see what you mean. There's some resemblance. Then again the portrait isn't completely accurate either. Always a challenge. Anyway, thanks for the support!

    Couple studies to start off with. All referenced.

    Hey zou,

    :|


    Haha, well. Xmas/new year was awful, with very little art. Pretty much everything in the last post is done in the last two weeks. Working on lots of stuff now though.

    Here's a start with the daily routine.


    Charcoal portraits, A2-ish size. Done at a lifedrawing workshop at the REALISME14 art fair. Organized by Wackers Academie.
    Times were somewhere between 10 and 30mins. Hard to keep track of since it was pretty tough. The session was concluded with a 10-min-crazy-angle pose.

    Hey zou!
    Thanks for the crit. The head is indeed slightly too large.

    These are great exercises too, very recommended. They're relatively new and you can find them under the community activities.
    The goal is to do these without tracing or colour picking.


    Anyways, here are a few more.
    Tomorrow I'll update with something else. Got quite a few things lined up again.
