    Hey FinalKnight,

    Just wanted to swing by and return the favor for the nice critique you gave me. I think you got a pretty solid start to your sketchbook. I especially like that last page of studies. I think you got a pretty good grasp on anatomy, itleast far better then me. If your looking for good refs though and different poses you might want to check this out- http://www.posemaniacs.com/blog/pose/

    In terms of your digital paintings I think you can push you values alittle more. Try converting the refs you use into grayscale and work in grayscale more to get that down. Just do more studies like the first image you posted.

    In anycase keep up the good work. This is a strong start!

    I really like your figure work. The poses are interesting and your proportions look pretty dead on. I would like to see you put more detail in the eyes like adding pupils as having it as is makes it a bit alien at times.

    Imagination is not a total internal power but rather it is a reflection and multi-faceted projection of our experiences and knowledge. We take in information from the world around us and intuitively re-order it into something new. Something is not created from nothing but simply transformed from what was before.

    Doesn't have a point of view, knows not where he's going to.

    Trashy: Thanks for the critique. I definitely need to work on my values. It's my next highest priority after I learn how to use this thing they call a pencil. The first image I posted was the piece I spent the most time on, about 4 hours, which is likely why it is the best looking.

    Ito Saith Webb: Thanks for the comment on the eyes! The eyes are the most important part of the face, so I will spend more time rendering them out! As for the pupil-less eyes, I was kind of aiming for the alien look.

    Thanks everyone else for the support.


    Well I haven't updated in a while, but I've probably been drawing a lot more than any other time in my life (but still not enough!) I am also reading all of your comments, so thank you for that.

    Time for a larger batch of pictures. I have realized I can't draw worth a damn, and I hope to remedy this by doing lots and lots of studies...

    Which brings me to Burne Hogarth, starting to love his work, almost finished drawing every single line in his Dynamic Figure Drawing book:

    Those were just a few of the drawings. Don't feel like scanning them all. I think I have one of the slowest scanners in the world.

    Also been doing quite a bit of life drawing. My SkyTrain sketches and University sketches:
    Attachment 280650
    Attachment 280651

    And something from my imagination:
    Attachment 280653

    Something I scribbled while waiting for all these things to scan!
    Attachment 280652

    And a digital self-portrait because I hate all the ones I've done so far, and this is no exception...
    Attachment 280655

    A portrait I did of my friend in class. It's come to the point where I don't listen in class anymore and spend most of my time drawing.
    Attachment 280654

    Next update I'll be finished this Hogarth book so I hope I can do some fully rendered drawings!

    I really like the sheet of eyes. They're so hard to get right, it's good that just looking at that you can see how you progressed, even that quickly.

    Thanks for the comment resonanteye. Hopefully I can keep getting better at a fast pace, but it seems like my progression is slowing.


    Only one comment for all that junk! I guess I know what the problem is. I need more hot chicks!

    Sargent brush in Painter with android styling in the background - about 4 hours:

    3.5 hr:

    Trying a different style. Figures were drawn with only 1 line:

    Trying to learn how to hatch/shade:
    Attachment 287665

    Trying to stick people into environments (which I am horrible at):
    Attachment 287662
    Attachment 287663

    Was really foggy and I couldn't see this figures very well so I just did silhouettes:
    Attachment 287667

    Finally, went to my very first, second and third life drawing sessions, these are from the second and third:

    Very nice sketchbook. I really like the looseness of the color pieces. As you start adding detail, try not to lose the energy of the loose strokes. That Sargent brush is really working well for you.

    Baby you're a rich man too

    Heya MeTaL-Mike,

    I am probably the last person who should be giving advice on colour (or value in general). I just recently delved into the world of colour and value. I almost exclusively work with line and rarely try my hand at full renderings including coloured or b&w ones.
    However, I'll try to explain my process using some gif's.

    1st one:
    Attachment 306485Attachment 306486
    1. Always find a good reference picture. I usually go with something that catches my eye. If I can find a naturally lit picture with a strong light source and without any photochopping, I will use that. Although even better than reference, is from life if you can find something that interests you.

    2. I start by filling my canvas with a 50-70% value.

    3. After that I usually do the darkest darks, but I only make them around 90% to give me some wiggle room. These darks that I put in - as far as I can tell - are very saturated.

    4. In this particular one there were not very many darks on the figure so I decided to do the lightest lights first... (but I didn't go anywhere near white)

    5. Now is the complicated part. When I choose my initial colour - and I am always waaaaaaay off with this - I try to get the correct saturation, temperature and value for the dark and light side. As I said, I fail miserably at getting a close relationship, so I have a lot of tinkering to do.

    6. After I get all my quick initial colours in, I focus in on a smaller scale. Try to look for areas that share a same general value and colour. For each of these smaller areas, I consciously think: "Is this the right value (no? Okay is it brighter or darker). Is this the right temperature (no? Okay is it redder, or yellower). Is this the right saturation (no? Okay is it more saturated, or less saturated)." It is VERY important to make sure you get the value right, temperature and saturation are secondary.

    I have also found that unless your value is right, there will be no way you can get the right colour. If at any time you are struggling very hard and you just can't seem to nail the colour, then without a doubt your values are wrong.

    7. I quit when I get frustrated which is probably why I have no finished stuff :].


    Attachment 306511Attachment 306496

    Overview:
    Start with a dark gray canvas.
    Then the darkest darks :: very saturated (but don't make them black!)
    Then block in some colours.
    Then tinker and keep in mind value, saturation, value, temperature, and value. (Make sure you get that value right!)

    Attachment 306498

    If anyone has any critiques on my process I'd love to hear it.
