    Blobs of colorful stuff

    I'm Chris, 17, and I want to get better at art. That's pretty much all that's needed to be said, so on to the stuffs!

    Looks like you're doing pretty good there so far, I like the light and shadow on that piece.

    im loving the looser life drawings - the shading and proportions on them are bang on...

    i think that bringing that loose-ness over into your other work would greatly benefit them...

    you've got a good sense of colour which is something you definately need to keep

    Wow, you have really great stuff! I had seen your stuff on DA, but its good to see that you have more works here.
    You are very talented for your age. You're life drawing works are lovely and you have a very good eye for balancing the contrast in your paintings.

    Keep it up

    Long post coming up

    Sorry for the delay in responding! I wanted to reply, but didn't want to do so without any pictures as well. Anyway, a malfunctioning scanner and a lost USB cord later, here's some work and responses.

    So uh.. no color posts this time (er... alright, except for one iPod Shuffle)! Four recent head drawings from figure/head class on Saturdays, some 25 second gestures from master works, and the thumbnails and scenery are from my 13 day trip to Europe in the summer, where I did sketches on the bus and on a ferry. If only I could get in that art mood again! And then two more sketchbook pages from January or so. Hmm ...I think I got less creative as I started to learn more!

    And for last post, thank you very much for your time! I appreciate it greatly! So, now for replies:

    strybjorn- Thank you! I'll try bringing over some of the loose-ness, something that is always unintentionally lost along the way as I color things. Thanks, I'll try to keep that in mind next time !

    LexMedden- I mostly use Photoshop, but sometimes Painter. I try to approach CGing as if it were a traditional medium; that is, using a base color, working the darks and then the lights and then the darks again and so on until I get a good range of value. I typically use simple default brushes so that I won't be too distracted by the shinyness of those awesome fancy brushes; I'm saving those for later when I feel like I'm confident enough with the good ol' round brush

    RaistlinTheDark- Thank you! Is your username from Dragonlance by the way?

    artmessiah- Thank you! I would hope so too, one day in the future!

    chief- Thank you for your time!

    Silveraxe- Nice to meet you on here as well as DA. Thank you!

    kinnas- Thank you, appreciate the comment!

    ACRO- Hmm, art manga style? As I'm somewhat trying to move away from that stuff, I was hoping that it wouldnt be that obvious (other than the one profile shot, I suppose) X) If you have any observations as to just what makes it so manga (as opposed to, er, cartoons), then any pointers would be welcome And yep, I've done some environments with characters that aern't the main focus-- but shamefully, not enough. Good point, got to work on that!

    FactorZero- Thank you very much!

    Madfishmonger- Thanks ! By the way, that giraffe in your sketchbook is adorable.

    Cydonix- Thank you! And yes, when I remember to I use reference I do, but only to whatever extent my conscious permits me to; in other words, no blatant copying outside of studies. The first one is inspired greatly by John Singer Sargent. (And why the sweat drop? Ahaha)

    GusTheRobot- Thank you! I will keep practicing those figures

    Really awesome stuff in here. You have a very defined style for someone so young! Nice colors, you create a lot of mood for your paintings. Great studies, too can't crit but damn you have so much talent!!

    Keep it up.

    i have to agree with iMaiM, superb work for someone your age. if you're looking for some help. i would recommend refining your rendering. either tighten up into sharp pen work or blended. i say this only because you lose some of the awesomeness of your faces in the scribbled shading. your gestural work is dead on, rendering of the shuffle is great and your faces are proportionally perfect (how long did all of these take?).

    keep on browsing....over to my sketchbook for quick glance http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=108720

    Update

    Nikoh - Thank you! I hope so
    Hurley- Thank you! I'll see if I can dig up those portraits again; I recently wiped my laptop to free up some space. I'll make this time's larger though, hope that helps.
    jonor77 - Thanks, I will work on that! Practice some pens and cleaner shading. As for how long those took; I'm not sure, but I took note of how long the poses were held this time when I remembered to do so. Maybe that can help give you an idea?
    DeathChalupa - Haha distanced enough already, your stuff is awesome! Must... get better... !
    iMaiM - Thank you! I sometimes wonder what makes my style my style Still got to figure that out...!
    ACRO - It's an iPod Shuffle mp3 player !


    Anyway, figure drawing post now, and color one right afterward.

    Most of these pictures are from my ACCD Sat High class, which had a greater emphasis on style and gesture, as opposed to Vilppu's anatomy and form, and so on. So I took this opportunity to try a more stylized approach to figure drawing; it's also more fun, more angular... Discovering the vine charcoal is one of the reasons why this class was worth it for me, ahaha

    Edit: Forgot to add the portrait drawing the first time! This one's from Vilppu's class.

    Color stuffs

    About time! Seriously

    These I did several hours each, one-speedpaint-per-day kind of mindset. I needed to force myself to finish something!

    There are plenty, plenty of mistakes in all of these, especially with anatomy, so feel free to bring them up! That way when I go back and fix the mistakes I see now, I can hit them all in just one shot or two

    Also, two are fanart (Tekkon Kinkreet and Avatar), the second to last is inspired by Phil Hale and Jon Foster, and the last one's a Sargent study !

    It's hard to crit anatomy when everything is so stylized. So I wouldn't worry about it, because the whole reason behind stylization is to kind of wonk-out the anatomy to exaggerate anyway. The only thing that stuck out for me was the guy with the fire shooting out of his eyes -- his forearm muscle was extra-large. And even then, I only saw it because you mentioned anatomy. If you hadn't have said a thing, I wouldn't have seen a thing. Perhaps don't mention it next time

    “It is enough that we set out to mold the motley stuff of life into some form of our own choosing; when we do, the performance is itself the wage.”
    -Learned Hand

    "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed." ~Albert Einstein
