    zou; I struggled with those peaks. They were very sharp and actually detailed in the ref. But with little contrast. Could see it perfectly but could not get it 'on paper'.
    Dizon; True, I think the result got a bit muddy. I have to admit had not spend much effort thinking about the lighting. Lesson learned. Thanks, many more studies will follow!
    Angel Intheuk ; Thanks. Heh, well I just feel I need some sort of boost at this point. Lots of ideas usually, but I can't execute my ideas. Good points on the saturation and contrast. Now that I think of it I stuck too much to sampling colour from a single source. Need to paint more consciously!
    Hai; Thanks, I need to practice this badly! Wacom is great. Still not using it to the fullest though. Not using any of the buttons on the pen or tablet. Also still messing around with brush settings, but I feel experimenting helps.

    I attended the Color Theory course! The streaming one here on CA. Which was WELL worth it, I'd advice it to anyone. Lots and lots of knowledge, very thorough. I feel this will help me greatly. I would like to do some freelancing, so I need some sort of breaktrough.

    Some Bridgman folding studies
    And reffed studies.

    haha wanted to say "awesome folds!" then I saw they are from bridgman Awesome bridgman studies! With your digital copies I would try to render with a bigger brush though, as is with your overal digitals. You're not making simple and recognisable shapes and the result is a bit wobbly sometimes. Great scetchbook though, lots of dedication!

    Hi Angel


    well you could 'cheat' and blur them yourself and add some blue fog over them , just too se the result.

    Well one question about the color theory class in CA: is about color contrast ? mixing ? just to know the subjects

    good work on the dancer (but check proportions:right thigh)

    and the mountain (especially the snow area)

    ~Faust~; I wish my own studies were that good, haha. You're correct on the digitals though, I'm working on my brushwork. Still can't quite get the hang of it. Thanks!
    zou; Heya zou. Yea I'm trying to improve this. My environments often lose contrast and get blurry when I fade out the background. So at the moment I'm just trying to accurately pick colour and value. I've learned a lot from the colour theory course. Properties like Hue, Saturation, and Value were covered, but also things like colour balance, colour variation, colour narrative, mood, space. Jason used mostly paintings to explain things, so you could also learn how all this is practised. I also got tips on how to practise and improve my sense of colour, being colour blind. Invaluable.
    Noticed the dancer's thigh by the way -sucks ;|
    Dizon; Cheers, there will be MANY more colour studies like these.

    More studies, all from reference. Blablabla moving on.

    Quick envs, bit unfinished.

    And concepts for the group project! (which is creating concepts and illustrations based on the story "Jack the Giant Killer")
    I'm starting off with 'Blunderbore', a giant who is the lord of an enchanted castle. He intends to kill the main protagonist and enjoys holding ladies captive in his castle. Trying to give him a somewhat asian influence, to match Dizon's interpretation of the main character. I'm scrapping the left and the right one is unfinished. And I'll probably have to add some jewellery or a crown to make them look more 'lordly'. I really want to put a killer portfolio together, so crits are appreciated! (as always)

    Also, I'll be in Barcelona for 1 week, leaving tomorrow. Missing the tablet already. Perhaps I'll get to do some sketching.

    hi Anthis,

    well very nice concept on the giant.
    perhaps his legs are short for a dangerous creature.

    i got what you said about the studies of enviro, me too i try to learn how to choose color and copy things. Thanks for your clarification about the color class. color narrative, mood, space : well i never heard of those. seems unmissable thing and they prepare for a composition class ! unfortunately i can't buy anything from internet.

    if you could talk about an exercice color you do (your goal, ...) it would be helpful

    thanks Anthis

    Looking lovely mate! Youve really nailed your referenced pieces! The latest post is amazing! Though some of the enviros could use more saturated colors to make them pop out! great job overall, looking forward to see more

    zou ; Good points on the giant. I was initially going for short, strong legs. Sort of a tough, well-fed (he's lord of a castle afterall) and not too skinny giant. But good point - I do want him to look at least intimidating. The color theory class really opened my eyes. Some of the exercises; First of all doing environmental studies and still lives is advised (don't use the sampler). Also something else called color charts. I'll post that soon.
    NoodleDoodle; The environments are still pretty tough. But I like them and they are useful, so many more will come. For now- my own environments do get very gray.. good point.
    Dizon; I'd agree on the 3rd, for now. I'll post more of em this week. I think I'm playing too 'safe' on the clothing. Concepts should be more daring, I believe.


    Went back from vacation right into an exam again. New year starting.. safe to say I'm a bit behind on getting everything together.
    Also gave this old PC a big cleaning, and threw away quite some digital stuff in the process. No problem - I'll fill it right up in the next days.

    The spartan camp (link in my sig, scroll down!) hit its 100th (!) round not too long ago. (basic idea; draw roughly 50 poses/studies a weekly). I've been doing those for ages and rarely post them in here. They're just studies after all. But here's a few.
    Will add more stuff tomorrow!

    From ref, for the spartan camp!;

    Ey good to see a new post here finally! haha

    Those studies are going to pay off sooner or later. Good job.

    BTW, what sites do you visit for these referenced poses? Thanks.

    hi

    good structured figure with fine lines !

    i seen the spartan camp in your sig, it intrigued me. I want to do the same here, seems like a sketch group no ?
    i want to form a group but i'm seeking for motivated people who has time and will be present when asked for. How many sketchers have you in your group ?

    Dizon; At the moment I'm using this site a lot. This one can be nice too. And characterdesigns.com too. I had some really nice photobucket/flickr accounts of nude posing people too, but they seem to be getting removed. Got quite a list of sites but many of the links are broken by now. Using exactitudes.com too, think I got that one from you, hehe.
    zou; I guess you could call it an open sketch group. Activity varies a lot. Main goal is to get a challenging environment where we can help and learn off each other. But it's quite easygoing actually. Not sure if it works for everyone, but I think it does for me.

    Getting blue screens and my monitor broke, so my computer seems to be going down. Just posting leftovers before they're lost.

    Studies, all from reference or still life. Think I'll need to do more without the ref, so that's up next.

    Awesome studies all the way... are those kneaded erasers in your newest post? Really interesting practice The charger study came out really well. The face studies are coming along nicely also - make sure you are thinking about the underlying structure of the face rather than copying the light/shadow/surface textures as you see them. Some of the perspectives of the eyes or mouth seem just slightly off.

    Great stuff, please keep sharing

    Holy crap the posemaniacs site is fantastic!!! The rotation feature will help a lot! I'm getting a virus alert from all-pictures.org though. haha

    Thanks, dude.

    Great studies, overall!

    Duhuhuuuuude. Where's you at? Awesome Jack the Giant Killer giants by the way! I've been playing around with my Jack design, but I haven't made anything that I liked yet.

    MOAR!

    Nightblue; True enough, thanks for the reminder. It happens all too often! I used the kneaded eraser because I had no clay at hand, seemed like a fun exercise.
    Dizon; I'd love it if they added more scans to the posemaniacs site. Not getting a virus alert from all-pictures.org here, there's a couple of banners and such though.
    GweNdZ; Cheers!
    AestheticMachine; Yea those value studies are really important. I need to do more of them myself as well, hehe. Get the values right and everything will read well.
    Hai; I may have lost the PSD unfortunately. It's a great project though, I'm determined to pick it up again..
    sony; Yea true enough, it's a drawing from back in the deviantart days. Heh.
    NoodleDoodle ;Yea it sucks badly, short explanation below.
    Sir Cam; Too slow though!

    I think I owe an explanation to my SSG. I'm quite busy with college at the moment but that's not the main reason for my crappy activity. My 6 year old wooden PC is having a hard time running photoshop. I'm confined to a small canvas size, and even then I often have to wait several seconds for a brush stroke to appear. I'm still getting frequent blue screens as well. I just did a major cleanup today, resulting in some improvement.

    Needless to say, I'm pretty frustrated with the current situation.


    Stuff for the weekly spartan camp, here on CA (link in my sig!). Just quick figures.

    For all your photoshop problems, you're still producing some seriously high-quality shit! I envy your figures so much, man. I would assume your dedication to the spartan camp has something to do with that.

    Hai; I enjoy the anatomy to be honest. I also believe I'm finally seeing some results, which is a thrill. I'm mostly painting small-scale in photoshop. And close just about all apps. Cheers!

    Some stuff for the Daily Sketch Group.
    Sketches were for a C.o.w and some giant sketch for the Jack the Giant killer portrait.
