    === Unsharpened's sketchbook (a little bit nudity)===

    Hi everyone,
    This is the first time I post here since I've been hesitated for ages because of my poor works, but I think I really need some critics to improve myself.
    First of all, the list below are questions that I have been coming across constantly:
    1. It is always difficult for me to creating some really "original" stuff, and it seems that I can only draw certain angles (45degree side view? maybe).
    2. I love do more female character design, but I just can't get their costume right. Well, even there is a ref book in front of me, I might still struggle with the wrinkle of cloth

    Anyway, a picture says thousand words, hope you enjoy them.
    P.S. All of these pics I've done some changes by Photoshop, I hope this will help you guys identify where my problem is faster

    Hi everyone

    I tried to practice more in phtoshop, though drawing still my favorite....
    I found that my digital work is quite ....flat? or too mild probably I would say.
    Using mouse to paint on photoshop was really annoying me, but I think my problem might be still in the aspect of understanding of colour.

    Anyway, suggestions and criticisms will be appreciated, thanks!!

    If you're just starting in photoshop, I suggest not jumping right into color right away as it can get overwhelming. Try doing some grayscale studies, and then moving on with a full range of value color palette. Having a palette really does help.
    The drawings look good, but it looks like you suffer from vangogh fingers [like me], maybe clean up your linework some?

    Joatley: Thanks for the crit! Your works are pretty nice~ I was wondering where did you get your ideas from. Fantastic!
    enthombed: Your line quality in your sketches is really a model for me to learn, Thanks!!

    I've just got my hand on my Wacom tablet(A6) today, and it looks just beautiful! However, it did take me quite a while to get used to with it, and then after 2 tonal practicing, my wrist was killing me..... The other thing is, it seems that all works just starting to pile up right after I decided to push myself harder..pld:. There are some assessments that I have to finish for the course I am taking currently.

    It's really a shame that I can't finish both one sketch and one digital painting a day, which is my original plan. Thus I think there is another issue that I should really take time to tackle with....time management.


    Cheers!!

    Two grayscale practices(1 hr each? hopefully)

    Hi there,
    2 speed painting practice which I've done today. They took me about 30-40 mins each..., but I am still feeling that it is really difficult to catch the right feeling of them. It just like... I don't know how to describe that, but I hope I'll improve myself by doing this grayscale practice.

    Suggestions and criticisms are always welcome!!

    With reference. I just couldn't help be distracted by the colour on the photograph.....

    Crits are always welcome!!

    for starting out, you're already on the right path (lots of studies from photos or from life), and after that, everything's just practice-practice hehe the brushes don't matter that much, i think.. i use the basic hard-edged round brush for almost all my preliminary sketches.

    what will help you "be creative" is to expand your mental "image library". once you have understanding of the basic structure and why things are shaped the way they are, you'll be well on your way to be able to bend the basics into interesting things

    keep up your practice/studies (try spend more time on them to get them "right", no point rushing them because the idea of studies is to learn) and also, check out the tutorial and tips forum for lots of good tips from some of the most awesome artists here

    To deadred & RandAlThor:
    The only reply I can post is .... I envy you guys' talent!!!pld: Your works are veteran.
    I'm serious!! Anyway, thank you for those kind words

    I've felt so guilty since the last post I did, and I know that it has been a long time past already. I have tried to fix my line quality in sketches, and kept studying as many masterpieces as I can. Well, I actually just imitated their strokes, so all I did was copy.....more or less.

    I was curious that many brilliant guys here have mentioned about him, so I borrowed some books about him. They are awesome.. if there isn't so many text.

    I think that I had better to make my works more clean and complete from now on. There is no reason for me to post craps just because this is a sketch book... , it should still be well managed after all, isn't it?


    Cheers!

    P.S. Almost forgot, crits are always welcome!

    It is difficult to make the cursor to follow how your pen move on the tablet... or it is just my lack of eye-to-hand coordination?

    Hi guys

    It has been a month passed and it seems that I am always staying in the same stage....
    I am taking a life drawing class once a week, and I've also found tons of valuable resources for me such as the Workshop DVD (It's all free in the library!). In brief, I think and I do push myself everyday. However, the progress isn't so impressive for me. Probably I am going the wrong way? I hope not.

    Anyway, a few up date today,


    === Unsharpened's sketchbook (a little bit nudity)===

    Value study

    Some brushes and layer combination

    Concept drawing for my study... I know it's horrible, but I can't think other way about conveying Global Warming...

    Crits and comments are welcome

    Developing the skill to dig ideas from my head and visualize them on the paper is really a difficult task for me, now I admire those brilliant artists here more than before.

    Hope have crits as always
