    this stuff is really nice. i love those gesture sketches and portraits, it looks like you captured a likeness very well. your already studying what you should be, so just keeping drawing!

    lilnebo - Thanks so much!
    Ignominious - Thanks for the nice comment, appreciated And yes, I'll just keep on practicing!

    Damn, it's been exactly a month since I updated. School's been quite hectic lately, but that's still a lame excuse! I hope that won't happen again. Thought I'd still throw up my latest batch of doodles.

    These are some studies from Loomis' face/hand book and also some sketches for a request I got from a friend, along with the sketch itself. I've yet to tweak that some, fix the girl's face and put some details and such. We'll see.

    Feel free to crit to pieces, as usual!

    Hi there!

    Your pencil stuff is ace! The works you coloured at the start of the thread could use some more punch. Try "layering your colours" a bit more, mix them, use a lot of colours. Grass isn't green, it's a mix of blue, red, yellow and whatnot, if you get what I mean. And a thing that somebody once said to me was, "don't think of your line art as being sacred" meaning that you can paint over it aswell as under it.

    Nice!

    Thanks for commenting in my SB, much appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Piru - Thanks a lot, mate I'm aware that my colours need heaps of work, so thanks for confirming. I must admit that I'm still quite stuck in the "sky is blue, grass is green" when it comes to colour, I really have to stop that! Thanks for the tips and kind words, see you around

    This is a great start. Your sketches and drawings are very clean and well handled. Keep doing the foundational stuff it will serve you well in the future.
    You mentioned color in a previous post...I had that same problem of being overly primary in my color choices. A good friend of mine who happened to be a great artist showed me his working palette one day...he did very realistic color in his work...his oil palette looked like tinted shades of mud with little or no pure color.

    Anyway, keep up the figure drawing it's invaluable and it's working for you.

    I like the gesturals and the quick studies, as well as the life drawings. The stuff on this (the third?) page is really quite good.

    I'm not a fan of the super-cartoony stuff at the beginning; perhaps because my stuff wanders toward that realm too, and I'm always fighting to get away from it. It's like what R. Crumb says in that Zwigoff documentary about his life and family - he acquired the "cuteness curse" when working at American Greetings.

    My advice is definitely stick with the life drawing - those are my favorites of yours. Best of luck!

    paac - Takk kćrlega, frábćrt ađ fá smá hrós frá ţér
    lilnebo - Thank you so much for the kind words, I'm flattered! You're still so young that you've got plenty of time to improve, so by all means use it Keep it up!
    Penumbra - Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll definitely stick to the life drawing, it's great fun and challenging. Interesting to hear about the colour palette, I'm sure it'd do me good to study it harder. Realism is fun!
    madhatter106 - Thanks a lot for the encouragement I agree with you about my 1st page cartoony stuff, I'm actually trying my best to get away from that style now! Those pictures are almost a year old now. It's sometimes hard to break away from the habit, but I'm hopefully one my way.

    I just thought I'd put up a WIP of the picture I'm working on. I'm still inking it, and I'm trying a more realistic approach this time. Definitely more time-consuming, but I think it's worth it. I also plan to colour this in a subtle and realistic way, or at least try to!

    Any crits and comments are welcome

    Hey hey! Thanks for your comment on my SB! Now I'll return the favour...

    I like your pencilled works most, they're very sketchy but mostly in a good way. About the last one, it's looking nice, very clean, confident lines, but is there going to be more hair? Otherwise she's got one hell of a cone-head! Maybe you could also try adding some more 'weight' to your lines in the right spots, you know, thicken them around hard edges, because right now they look a bit uniform.

    JPC - Aw, thank you! I like that, 'leveling up' I'll try my best at colouring!
    Yngling - Thanks mate, glad you dig the pencil ones Oh, and I forgot to mention, that yes, I've yet to ink all her hair! These are just her bangs so far, so she looks quite weird. I'm glad you mentioned the hard spots thing, because I intend to do so.
    PinkElephant - Hehe, as I said, her hair will come And I didn't ink her ears because the hair will cover them anyway.

    I'm about halfway through with her hair now, hopefully she won't look like a conehead now I've also put some more weight into the lines, hope it looks somewhat better.

    Occidental_Martyr - Thank you, that means a lot to hear!

    Alrighty, I'm sorry if I'm overflowing you with WIPs, but I'd love to get any input on this before I start inking the guy tomorrow! Like with lineweight etc

    Ooooh I gotta say your girls are very beautiful, you know your stuff when it comes to drawing... well jaws. I'm so into how you draw them And that WIP is looking great as well. I admire everyone who has the patience to ink such clean lines one by one, I always get annoyed and throw color all over it so noone sees my messy lines

    Good to see you picking up that Loomis stuff as well, it's really good.


    ...


    Just went through the thread again. I love it! Will watch this sketchbook, please keep it up!

    Hey thanks for stopping by my SB. Was greatly impressed by your initial stuff. Like how you were varying between different styles. Your faces so far have been delightful and of what I saw you are getting better. The sketchiness of your lines is something you will overcome with practice and more confidence. I heard it also helps working with a non-eraseable medium such as pen.

    There is nice progress on the last wip. Good job with the current inking. Mind sharing how you are inking it digitally? (If it is of course). Only crit I find is that both hands look about the same size, in which the hand farther back should be a bit smaller than the one on her face. I think the front hand should be a tad bigger, just remember that the hand is about the size of the face. Hope that helps, looks good so far and keep looking forward for more

    Been dropping by your sketchbook a few times by now so Guess It's time to make a comment. I really like how you treat faces. your lines feels very sensitive and delicate.


    On this last one however what is happenign to the left arm + I can udnerstand that it must be goign backward due to the positioning of the lower arm. But her shoulder and body positionin or how the cloth reacts gives no indication to it instead it just looks really weird. Not sure how to fix it though.

    Trashy - Thanks so much! It means a lot to hear about the improvement. And I plan to colour my latest
    algenpfleger - Thank you for the lovely comment! Haha, you like my jaws? I guess my refs have lovely jaws then And inking is just about patience, I'm sure you can find it in you
    Maestro Andres - Thank you so much, both for the encouragement and advice, very appreciated. Will have to try drawing with a pen, been a while! I'll also chech her hand out, thanks for the tip.
    As for inking (which yes, is digital), I first set by brush to these settings: http://suta-raito.com/PSroughlines.shtml Then it's really just a lot of patience! I used a 3 pxl hard round (with the A4 sketch scanned at 400dp). I often make fast swooshy lines first, esp.if they're long, and then go over them again, just bit by bit, often edit and fix them along the way. I found this tutorial (http://andoledius.deviantart.com/art...orial-31211343) long ago, been using it since. Check it out, he explains it better!
    catukas - Thanks a lot If you have problem inking, the tutorial I linked above might be helpful to you!
    Eux - Thanks for the nice comment, glad to hear As for her arm, I think I see what you mean. If you (or anyone!) could tell me more precicely how to fix it, I'd be grateful. But I'll take a look at it, see what I can do!

    Anyway, I haven't worked on my big inked pic since my last WIP, been a bit busy. But I still managed to whip some Loomis studies up, thought I'd upload them It's the first time I've done these mannequins, so they're quite weird at the moment, but will hopefully be smoother with practice

    Your loomis studies looks very cool! I love these 'balance-skeletons', they are really cool.

    Your stuff, as always, looks very good, can't wait to see the girl colored!

    PS: You forgot to update the title of the thread with the update day!

    alright, then your jaws have lovely refs... err ... refs have.... whatever
    loving those skeleton poses, seem to help a great deal, i think i should do some of those as well!

    and thanks for the very nice words in my little book
    um, you asked about my brushes, and i would love to tell you about them. but i use sai, which works completely different from photoshop. it has really smooth brushes and is easy to use. lookie here: link and here

    yea you got your improving as well,nice to see you doing these studies and I can see you start to loose your line,keep going and have a lot of fun.About your color stuff - this ---> http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1197992912

    look really good,about some of the rest - maybe you should to use airbrush or soft brush more rarely,try to put simple colors with hard brush 100/100% and then you start to messing on them with different opacity levels to get nice shot on I think this may help you to understand what I mean

    http://www.3dtotal.com/team/tutorial...ay/brush01.asp

    Your last digital ink is very very well done!
    cu around!

    MARMENTIDO - Thank you so much!
    Carbono - Thanks a lot! Also for reminding me of the topic update, fixed!
    sjuskadur - Já ok, ertu ađ fara í inntökuprófin bráđlega, í apríl/maí, ekki satt? Gangi ţér vel! Og takk fyrir ábendinguna og hrósiđ, ég er búin ađ laga stelpuna ađeins núna
    algenpfleger - Hehe, lovely jaw refs indeed! Used myself for the latest one, actually But yeah, I've learned lot from the skeletons, I recommend it! And thanks again for answering my question, I'll have to check Sai out!
    atlantik - Hey, thanks so much for the advice and tips. That link was excellent I agree, I have to boycott the airbrush and use the hard stuff now!

    Alrighty, I've finally done some more work on the girl. I took all of your advice to heart and fixed what I could What do you think, improvements or not? It'd be great to get feedback But I'll probably start on the guy now!

    if i know any useful tutorials she asks. WELL LET'S SEE


    the reason why i started painting in july 07 was linda bergkvist. her work is just INSANE - and look at her tutorials. i learned SO MUCH from them, it's unbelievable, and i find myself going back to them really often. look.
    click me if you dare :3

    apart from that, there#s some other good places with lots of stuff, most of it unsorted though
    like this awesome allround tutorial or all the imaginefx workshops. there's also tons of knowledge stored in some collection places, like here and here.

    but i recommend linda's stuff the most, it's what really got me started

    Thanks so much for the links! I'd forgotten all about Linda's tutorials, saw them some time ago. She's so talented, so they're very useful! And the others are bookmarked! I'll take a good look on those all, I'm sure they're very helpful. Thanks so much
