    Oh yeah!

    Don't leave out the faces in those studies though. Faces are damn important and you know it.
    If you don't feel comfortable painting them, pick up a pencil and just do tons of heads. That's what I'm planning anyway. O Get that video from Zhanglu. It's killer.

    Previous page you said:
    "I never know what to do after a certain point, no matter how long i force myself to work on it, feels like i just hit a wall or something. frustrating as hell."

    Easy solution. I always get reference material when I hit that turning point. Then just focus on rendering. Where is the light coming from? Where does it bounce?

    Anyway, take care. Keep it up!

    Hey man nice book!

    Looks like you were really on to something early on, but then something happened. The stuff you were working on at the beginning of the thread kicked ass, like this and these.

    The last page or so you're coming back to 3D form, so things are starting to look more solid again.

    You have it within you to become the kind of artist you want to be, and only you can put yourself there. I think you can do it.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    I really like your concepts and esp. figures, they seem quite solid and along with composition give your work a lot of life. I think weaker points of yours are tones, this is most evident in your more finished imagined digital works because although the underlying everything-else looks good, inaccurate darks and lights tend to flatten things out. Thinking more about tonal planes and lighting in 3d might help overall it seems like you're on a good track, improvement the last 10 pages or so is amazing! keep it up

    Been a while....

    Whoa, been a while since I've updated and/or posted here. I guess that calls for a mini-recap even if it only serves me really.

    I decided I was going to retreat into my cave late last year in hopes that my time in reclusion would be of more benefit.
    I really love this site and combined with a lot of discussion with friends and family, and nonstop back and forth with
    myself; caused me to decide to choose art as my career path(Sometime within the first few pages of this sketchbook).
    Pretty much throwing away the 3 years of the computer science degree I was already in.

    All of that was kind of a tangent.....Anyway, yeah I love this site it gave/gives me so much inspiration and guidance from
    all the talented people who have gone and those who stayed, but it also was pretty rough at the same time. Because of what
    I felt was a late decision, I had this neverending sense of urgency. Like I wasted so much time with other shit and had to arrive
    at some imaginary destination NOW. I'm a slow learner, I always have been. I'm the kid who prays to understand shit in a
    class by midterms so I don't have to pray for a perfect score on a final or drop a class. So I felt like the C-grade student
    surrounded by geniuses.

    That competition is an amazing motivator with the right outlook. I think that is one of the best reasons for artists seeking
    some sort of community (outside of just meeting friends with similar interests). And I think that attributed to a few of the
    periods where I felt I actually sprinting through instead of my usual slow trod.

    Man...these tangents lol. So yeah this place brings inspiration and frustration for me, thats why I tend to hide in my batcave
    from time to time and just try to figure shit out at my own slow-ass pace and not constantly in comparison with that imaginary
    goal of "Where I Should Be". Then I got sick as fuck for like 6 months and couldn't do anything, literally. I call them
    the DARK AGES because I'm a fantasy nerd and that word sounds cool in my head.

    So now that I been back on my feet the last few weeks, I kind of Youtube!
    So I guess since I've basically been outside of my own head, art wise for a while I kind of see where I went wrong with things.
    I've heard everywhere that with art you have to enjoy the process as much as the outcome, and man...I HATED the process. Not the
    physical process of drawing or painting itself because that is meditative I've always loved that but the mental aspects of
    improving/sucking bugged the shit out of me. I think that has changed a little, maybe its just habits but I still catch myself in "panic-mode"
    over something I don't get or giving myself arbitrary deadlines to make arbitrary progress. But definitely not as ridiculous as it
    was before, and I'm hoping I continue to weed it out.

    The main reason I even felt the urge to post this here is because when I couldn't do shit I looked through this thread and a bunch
    of others quite a few times. I really just like the that it tracks what an idiot I am, or what I was thinking or doing at a certain
    point in time. I'm not one for blogging or keeping a journal but this thread is pretty close to that for me and I at least plan to
    keep it going just to be able to look back through it for shits and giggles and not rage that I'm shitty. So yeah doubt anyone is
    as psychotic as I am/was and can relate but I felt I should toss this here.

    And Noooooow a dump!!!!!
    Stuff from my cave up to when I got sick and now the last few weeks I've been back on my feet(Starts at green guy with mace). HOPEFULLY in chronological order but this uploader man...this shit has got to get changed.

    More from today

    Appreciate it devin & luther.

    I'd like to think I'm keeping myself busy. I don't feel as lazy as I have in the past. I joined some mod team along with a friend to give me as many kicks in the ass as I can get. So we will see how that goes.

    A cute little video I made of a 40min sketch.

    It's a bit late but I must reply to something.

    You are so totally wrong.
    I quit my job as a programmer, I had my reasons but I wished to draw a little before I go back to that. This and that happened but those can't excuse me, I practically did nothing. I'm still a complete beginner at drawing, after long long years. I didn't even started, actually.
    You are doing it so much better I wish to include order of magnitude in this sentence but my English keeps me from doing so.

    Nice stuff, I like your figures and creatures, especially their design, the gesture and balance usually seem okay as well, anatomy is a bitch, you need to study that, of course, just like all of us. The pieces with background got better color/contrast/color perspective wise (the earlier ones usually weren't stellar at it), still there are plenty of room for improvement. I wonder if this help, I just stated my opinion and I can't draw myself but I like to think I have an eye for things and know much more I show in my scribbles.

    At any rate, I'm rooting for you
    Sorry for the blurb.
