Nice of you to start a sketchbook! I'm sure we can expect great stuff from you in the future... Just be the best you can be hehe. I'm sure you can do that

Nice start, its a bit basic... Maybe checking out Min Yum's ( Bumskee ) thread on Photoshop-painting... its here.

Now go practice

    Dile_: Thank you, and I hope i can get good too. Gotta read that thread for real sometday, bumskee is great, that is for sure.

    Thought i'd just post an update on that WIP before i go to bed.
    And it's still a wip, remember that.
    And about the ugly sky, i will draw an own sky there, but as it is right now;
    I suck att colours, as you might see.

    And i must say it to myself: I love this guy's feet. Or atleast his left foot.

    I didn't like the look of my skeetchbook very much, it was just black.
    Clean but nothing personal.

    So i thought that i'd just pimp it.
    And so i did.
    Ofc I'm stupid enoguh to make the stencil on paper.
    (don't have any plastic )
    The first image is taken at night, wich explains the high noise.
    (my fantastic camera can go so high as ISO 400. You heard it fourhundred.)
    And the second image shows how bad it went, the paper failed to slim against the SB properly
    (I did put stones on it, but that didn't help so very much, it's raining so that might have fucked up the paper).

    Now i like it more, even if my sketches inside blows.

    And the face got fucked up, so i leaved it fucked up.
    Way too bad in my opinion.

    Sorry for not posting any art this time, but I just wanted to share this text.
    It's written in about twenty minutes at school (It's linch right now, but I'm skipping that today).

    It might not be a very sharp text, but I just wanted to share my thoughts about culture (hence the name).
    And you will probably spot a lots of spelling errors here and there.
    But I'm from Sweden, so english isn't our main language, in addition to that I'm only fourteen.

    So. Um, enjoy! Though I'm positive that you wont.

    Culture Thoughts.
    My view on today’s culture, including pop-culture.

    First of all I want to say that I’m kind of cultural.
    It might be hard to spot when you see me in my silly t-shirts and baggy jeans.
    But I’m not that kind of person.
    I don’t listen to hip hop or techno.
    My musical library consists of Alternative Metal/rock, new age/wave death/heavy metal and sometimes symphonies (like Peer Gynt, which is absolutely amazing).
    I’m no artist, no matter what people say about it.
    But I’m going to be, someday.
    Right now I’m only working on Indie projects (non-profit so far) so I’m not getting cash for it.
    But it’s a great experience that I can include in my portfolio, which will help me in the future.
    And on top of all, it’s a great fun.
    Sometimes I get yelled at for sitting in front of the computer rendering different projects.
    When it comes to music, I only I can’t play a single tone, never bothered to learn.
    But I do have a guitar at home, but it’s just standing somewhere gathering dust.
    Most of my money go to the computer, art supplies and occasionally on different musical events.
    Back to art, I’m going to be honest here, I’m not that very good. Not yet, but I can be.
    I honestly think I have a future as a concept artist (making artwork for games and movies,).
    And in a short period I was attending to an art course, we didn’t learn very much at all.
    It was more like “sit here, draw anything” and maybe some short critics after that, nothing more.
    So I don’t think that helped me very much.
    So I’m basically self learned.
    I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not.
    But hey “whatever floats your boat” as I use to say.
    When it comes to abstract and modern art I’m not a great fan.
    Some things can be great, like some of Picasso’s work (but some of them are just gibberish).
    I like the more modern approach to art, didn’t I say that I hate that? No I didn’t.
    The art that classifies as Modern Art (like a shoe with umbrellas as shoelaces) is just garbage, I’m talking about the digital art.
    And that edgy style (which I’m not going to adopt) which features in many comic books (not Donald duck, I’m talking about frank miller’s graphic novels or Gentleman orpse).
    I’m not telling you that it’s correct to draw like that, I honestly don’t care about being very correct (as you probably can tell when reading this shit).
    To have the audience in mind when creating any art (even music) is a huge obstacle.
    You shouldn’t have the audience in mind (not too much, a bit can be healthy, especially when creating concept art) it’s just blocking the creative workflow which can ruin your artwork (yeah, I have had many artworks ruined because of that).
    Pop-culture is a good thing, because without it the stupid teenagers (yes I just called myself stupid, but I am) wouldn’t pick up any culture, at all.
    So MTV is a great invention, but YouTube isn’t.
    Hope you get what I mean.
    It might not be very logical, but I don’t strive to be understood (just want to understand myself meh).
    That’s about it, have a fuckin’ awesome day, because I certainly will! (or at least try).
    Sayonara (that’s Japanese, so don’t you bite me!), Au Revoir all of you!

    And I'd just like to say that this might not be my opinion at all, I just wrote what I thought was great.
    Didn't planned this in anyway, it just came out of my brain.
    A brainfart if you would like to call it that.

    Hey, that last one is great, maybe not from a concept art point of view, but from a fine art perspective its color and composition as a whole are actualy quite appealing

    more contrast in your pictures would improve much!! darker shadows (not blacker) and stronger lights (not whiter) and then some 2nd lightening and it will be all good

    Nice cloud training btw! keep on doing trainings like that and you'll get even better

    D@aniel: Thank you very much (the composition is based from a ref, and when i say based i mean that i've done quite a lot of tweaks to it)
    angus127258: That's awesome! Thank you, keeps me motivated.
    Doomgriever: A cookie for you!

    Yeah, i'm gonna try out some more lightsources, just gonna doodle around some more and, no.
    I'll try it right away, today.
    And about the contrast; Yeah, I kinda leave my "artworks" 'done' when i'm done with the shapes values and shit, I often don't care very much about contrast and moods and that.
    But I'll try to add som contrast (probably with levels, because I'm a lazy tard).

    I made a Gun Concept today (sorry for the shitty artwork), maybe some more stuff to show you, later.

    focus more on your lighting and highlighting/shading. You seem to be simply blocking out in solid colors but your pictures lack depth. Do some life drawings.

    angus147258: Hmm yeah.

    Tried out a limited palette in painter (and i never use painter),
    Jake: with a motif from life.
    Next to my screen it is
    Among with the cactuses and the extra keyboard.
    How 'bout that?

    And Dile_: It works pretty well in B/W too

    hey bro good idea to start a sketchbook.

    my advice to you would be to focus on traditional media at the moment, especially pencil. practice truely SEEING. draw what you see NOT what you think you see.

    drawing from imagination is hard enough but without the foundation of good observational skills its damn near impossible.
    so i suggest figure drawing...if you cant make it to any classes, go to the library and look for Bridgeman, Loomis and Hogarth.

    and dont stress about it either dude, you are 14! you have loads of time to practice and learn. enjoy learning because if it beomes a chore, its easy to give up.


    its a good idea to draw anything around you, its alot harder than people realise. to actualy draw what you see will surprise you. dont get caught up drawing what you think you see.

    Finaly, while you are young, try not to focus too heavily on concept art. if it becomes your single source of inspiration then your work will suffer I promise you. look at all types of art, even the stuff you hate. you dont need to come to any conclusions just yet, just look as much as you can.


    and keep drawing! though you may not be happy with what you do sometimes, niether is anyone else. no artist or designer ever sits back and says "yeah....im really happy with that, not a single thing wrong with it"


    keep at it dude

    not bad for a 14 year-old. i can see that you are having fun exploring the different programs such as painter. but you really should learn how to draw first before trying to render something. you have to learn how to draw properly in 3D space, else your drawings and paintings look flat.

    if you want to improve fast, i suggest you to get the vilppu dvds and books.
    here are some online articles of him:

    http://www2.awn.com/mag/issue3.5/3.5...3.5villpu.html

    keep working dood

    Hey kid! Thanks for posting in my Sb!
    You seems to have some great things going on here, I mean starting a sketchbook and all. Just keep drawing ever day..okay not every day, but so much you can, and it will pay off big time later on!
    I wonder, do you have a wacom-board or do you draw with the mouse?
    Anyhow there are some great tutorials how to use the brushes and things to think about. Just keep posting and I'll follow..
    Enjoy the wonder way of art!
    Lycka till hesten

    And by the way, you got some great feedback from Don-key!

    Don-key: Thank you! I know i gotta do much more analogue art!
    My art teacher keeps telling me, and just today I went to my father's work (he's a glazier) and made myself a mirror (yes, I did it by myself).
    But I like concept art Ohwell, I'm not gonna let that take all of my precioussss time. (sorry 'bout that worthless joke).

    bloodbrush:Yeah, I'm constantly being told that my digitals look flat, gotta draw more from life!

    Motives: Yeah, I did get som great feedback from don-key!
    I actually own a wacom tablet (but it was damn cheap! 130 euro! 1230 svenska riksdaler, and I bought it completely new).
    But I can draw with mouse, preetty decent, but as it is right now, I don't ever use them to draw with (unless I'm in school).
    But I'm gonna draw one next time my cats come home with one!

    Sorry 'bout drawing this stupid concept, but I just felt that I had to do it.
    Ohwell, there's nothing special about it.
    Next time my update will be analogue (as I call it ).
    Cheers! (It feels waaaay to mature to say that )

    Well you've made a nice physical sketchbook, but all the sketches on this thread are on your computer.
    My personal and, of course, expert opinion is that you should carry that paper sketchbook with you everywhere and draw everything you see. Draw rocks, trees, cars, people, houses, whatever. This is how you will learn.
    You have some good ideas, the imagination is there, keep it up.

    hey,as others have said youshould probably stick to traditional methods for awhile.
    just pencil and paper,youll learn alot more that way.
    try drawing some apples/oranges,and see how light reflects off them,it will help you improve depth.
    keep it up.

    Gilead: Thank you! I'm just to lazy to carry around the neat thing...

    The Curehead: Yeah, prolly should. So I drew some weird fruit that I can't name right now.
    As it is right now, we have more cats than fruits at the home, so maybe I'll just try to draw the cute little fellas instead .

    spudstudios: Thank you! Yeah, I can't scan. Both my scanners broke about a week ago.
    (No physical errors as far as I can see), so I'll have to use my crappy camera.

    PaperUpdate!
    It's a 7-10 minute sketch, but it's the only fruit drawing I can show right now.
    Less CA, more drawing!
    But I'm not so very artistic when it comes to fruits, I'd rather eat them.
    So it's pretty hard to draw them when parts of them just keep dissapearing.

    i wish i knew of CA when i was 14 hehe i envy you

    What i'd suggest is do studies to expand your "mental image library" so to speak, that your imaginative works have a base to work from, kinda like how you can't build a robot if you don't know anything about robotics, or something like that hehe.. keep drawing from life or reference until you learn enough to be creative with it. Also, take it one step at a time, learn shapes first, then only start with rendering/coloring.

    no crits from me so far, as you've only just started out, but i think whether you choose to use digital or traditional medium to do your art should not matter that much, use whatever feels comfortable for you to experiment and learn with

    dhilipsomesh: Thank you. Yeah, I gotta learn the perspectives and shit properly.

    Paperupdate! These are from history class today.
    just doodling down my fella students poses (an the teachers too), think it might help, somehow.
    I also drew one of the damn uncomfortable chairs.
    There might be another update later today

    Made on regular 80gr A4 copypaper, photographed with my crappy camera.
    Gotta buy a Canoscan, uhh.

    hey man great job on the fruit bowl.
    maybe try a detailed drawing of an individual fruit next,again its great practise for shapes and rendering.
    don't be afraid to take your time,alot of them look alittle rough.
    keep it up and you'll be great in no time.

    Lovely doodles! Do theese anytime and anywhere and you will get a sharp eye that never let you down

    About the design of the bike (or car); I like the sketch but I have some trouble reading the form of it. Maybe you could draw in some lines that fallows the shape, like the equator on earth. Hope I was clear enough

    The Curehead: I don't like to consume my time , I always want to finish stuff fast!
    But I do realize that I need to.

    D@niel: Haha thank you! It might be because of my stupidity .

    motives: I've just started to doodle a bit more! But I suppose that I only have time at history class
    0,5 mm HB shaker pen, approx 15 min.
    Thanks for the line idea, I'm gonna use that in my concepts from now on!

    Doodling at school, again! This time I didn't bother to draw my classmates as they would take notice on that.
    So I emptied my pockets and drew various things from them (keys and these earphones).

    (parenthesis)
    No, I'm not a spoiled brat! I'm actually pretty economical,
    I almost only by clothes on sale, the same applies to electronical shit.
    Actually bought an iPod mini, and got this (Nano v2) on the guarantee when it decided to give up on me.
    (end of parenthesis)
