    tsimps: sketchbook

    Hey all
    I'm a first time poster looking to get some feedback from you fine folks and hopefully improve my work. I thought I'd get the ball rolling with one of my more finished sketches from a while back- will hopefully have a whole lot more soon!

    definitely want to see more!
    very good start! only crit would be to make the under-water part more "under"-water bei adding some broken-light-texture to the creatures back. and defining the line where the water starts ( under/over water)

    Hey bro!
    Painting turned out sweet!
    I saw what gid sent you and agree on what changes he suggested. Especially about the leg. Think I brought that up with you once before. And the area that draws my eye atm is out the window - not that that is necessarily a bad thing. Just thought I'd mention.
    Beautiful colour and tone though. And the translucency of the plants is beautiful - esp that one upright leaf on the left. Cool as.

    One thing that bugs me - dont know how you painted the window framing (the joins between each little pane of glass) but it seems to perfectly linear and regular for your style. So much so that I'm getting a weird optical illusion thing when I look at it. Little pale dots at the crossing points. Weird! Maybe a little variation in the line or tonal variation would stop it - or maybe it perfectly mirrors what you are trying to say about urbanisation and our modern backyard - very sterile yet dirty, clean and full of endless possibility, yet caged in....

    Great piece anyways. I've finally started posting on here again! woop! lets get our sb's cranking!

    Mattattack.

    Ps. hows work? Say hi to Rodders for me

    Coooool!

    Hey Tom!

    Nice work on the paintings! I really like the way you still retain a really painterly style. The luminous leaves on the plants are wayy cool.

    Great tutorial on light by the way... Its in my favourites...

    Andy

    P.s. Your painting reminded me to water my plants...

    Nice work tom. And that optical illusion is quite natural - I think it's the contrast of frame to the lighter BG, I've seen it before - I can't think of anything you could do about it except maybe widening the frames. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Other than that, you could try warming up the exterior and the spill light to more of an orange to play off the green.

    Great paintings, the first Nessie one is my favourite! Like someone said, you got a real nice painterly look to them all, and your light and colours look sweet

    Hi!! Your colours and lighting really fit the scenes! Your blocked-in colours really say a lot when I look at the forms they create!

    Tmza- Hi again, thanks- a friend of mine is a web developer so I have him to thank for most of that!

    Hey man, no placing on the sea creature I know how it feels bro
    But nice piece and I'm sure plenty of learning involved -and at the end of the day thats the real point right?
    Loving the new commitment to drawing bro very inspiring. its making me wana get back on the wagon. Been so slack lately!
    Hope ur not getting worked too hard like I hear Anneka is. You guys shouldn't be doing that without extra pay. It's exploitation.
    That elwell tut on edges is good too man. shot! Dunno if Darkens' one taught me much. He doesnt really explain much of his thinking....?
    Defo catch u at lifedrawing next week! Needs me some praccy! haha.
    Sweet.
    Peace

    taeyoungchoi- Thanks man, checked out your website and other threads and I was very impressed!

    Matty- Cheers dude, yeah not too worried about not getting a place as I enjoyed doing it and learned a lot. It's given me a bit more motivation to raise to the bar as well so in a way I'm glad. I might have another crack this month..
    Wicked, see you then!

    love your attention to lighting mate, beautifully rendered, and beautiful colors.

    If you have time, I'd love to hear your feedback on some of my latest stuff.

    Cheers, Darren

    hey! I had checked out you sb about a month back, and I was liking the sea creatures. But man, looking at it now, I am really responding to the Fiji people paintings, and this latest "personal transport" is just really spot on! Nice designs, a bit of humor (enhanced by the facial expressions) nice one. Can't wait to see more!

    Nice mate. I'm loving Digging Tort chars 5 & 6, tort vechs 3 22 27 and 38

    Hare Vech favs: 11 15 18 24

    I don't think the Hare char is there for me yet. You could either change the poses up a bit to show more character or add more variation.
