    Wow, you have tons of amazing studies and amazing works on here, your rendering of everything I've seen is amazing. Keep up the good work, and your color is absolutely crazy, you should be up at the top of the page, at least I think so. I going to be keeping an eye on your sketchbook and perhaps using some of your study pages to make study pages of my own. Absolutely fantastic work.

    How do you achieve the different looks of different materials? Only with the use of other (custom) brushes (besides the different lightening and coloring of course) or is it possible to get them all done with the standard round PS brush? Just wondering because i never used manny brushes besides the round one.

    <Add usual praise-phrase here about your stellar progress>

    Yeah, you see texture is more than just this brush-option in photoshop, right? That is one of the reasons I switched to GIMP becuase I want to achieve the feeling of materials without using this cheat.

    Having said that, You did very well on the shoe! Bad very poorly on the knife, imho. There are several reasons I see for that, firstly, the materials on the shoe (Kautschuck und Leder, kein Bock im Wörterbuch nachzugucken) do not differ in color but indeed in their surface-bumpyness. While the one is smooth, the other is ... uh ... less smooth (Fuck, where is my english today?).

    Metal and wood on the other end, do not neccerssarily differ so much ni their surface-bumpyness, at least not neccerssairly. Wood can be oiled or treated with harnish (I think that's the word) and it will still look like wood. Reason for hat is that's the masonry and the color that make wood wood and less the other thing. Having said that, you failed to build up a believable masonry in the handle, you should simplify AFTER you understood the structure first.

    Ah well, whatever, back to studying....

    Oh, and the cranial structure of that girl is rather masculine

    holy crap man, do you even need art school? i mean with you dedication and all. haha, maybe thats what your parents meant when they said no....(look on the bright side eh? )

    truly an inspiration though. and thanks for the Pose Maniacs site. i turned on the 30 sec drawing app, and just went at it till my hand cramped up

    "One day, I'm gonna be an awesome artist. I'm dead serious. I'll just keep practicing until then." at the rate you're going youll be awesome by june (not that your not awesome already...)

    You seriously need to start a mentoring thread for colors. =D Just curious, but how long does it take you to get the right color when painting from photo and life and how do you go about it? I'm having problems finding the color I want on photoshop. Oh, and I agree with Faust with the portrait of the girl looking masculine, but can't exactly pinpoint it.. maybe the planes of the face?

    Hey sweet friend!! I'm back after a period of PC troubles!
    I can see you are still working hard and it's pay! You make some great progress. Some of the portraits need more attention on the structure and pose, but you rock!

    Man...I go on hiatus and you set this sketchbook on fire...like literally...I can almost smell the fuel in here.

    Just amazing studies and those still-life studies are perfect. Smooth and controlled strokes and sweet juicy colors. Awesome!!!

    seriously I can't crit crap in here...only thing I see sometimes is the strange recurring face but it looks like your getting control over that as well. It's too hot in here...I can't handle it...*runs to the refrigerator*

    The portrait at #627 looks awesome , looks close to something that i wanted to do next, but you work chaotically fast man , where to you find the time to do so much sketches, do you eat ^^, sleep, go to classes ... walk... fornicate? where do you fit it ) man. I see we kinda joined at the same time dec 2007 , but i wonder... were you doing digital before you joined ?

    Oh almost forgot the girl on #615 , her head is bigger then the face , and hair dose not stand on the head ... it's like a wig.
    Take short breaks , go outside .. ... just kidding, keep going man ,luv your stuff, cheers

    Whoah O____O

    Surion, thank you

    Asa my dear! Thank you. And yeah i think materials is definitely a topic worth diving into. About the color type though, after all I think I can't agree with that. I had a wonderful discussion with the lovely, lovely navate about that and we came to the conclusion that it's more that once you're good at something, you don't want to get out of your box anymore, so that's why "color guys" decide to stay just that. So for the next time, I'll stick to pencils, and transform myself into a form guy, and then combine my powers haha Long way to go though D:

    GusTheRobot, thanks a ton buddy, and thanks twice for the hints regarding materials! Makes perfect sense

    Homeless Foxman, wow man O_O You're exaggeratinhg. Thanks!

    zulu, thanks

    Gloominati, yay great to hear! Thanks mate Wheee~ Mentler is awesome. Oh man, I gotta keep going, I'm totally looking forward to what I can do three thousand hours of practice from now

    canti, like Gus, the awesome robot, said, it's more about how the surface interacts with light So the brush isn't really that important, although texture does play an important role in realism, in thumbnail size it all comes down to color, so that's the most important thing with showing materials.

    ~Faust~, now that's the laziest reason to switch to Gimp that I ever heard Why not use openCanvas 1.1? Thanks for the awesome critique mate, that definitely helped, gonna keep it in mind Damn that cranial structure, I still suck at understanding volume and form. Dx

    drd, tyvm

    kingkidd, haha yes I do, I wanna meet other artists! Teaching is no worry, I think in the age of the internet I can do that on my own. Haha thanks for those nice words mate!

    Fishspawn, thanks, I will!

    EvilBunny, haha really? Hmm maybe I should, and maybe it would even help me to deepen my own understanding. About the studies, usually.. hmm I don't know. Color is always realtive, so I usually pick a base color for my palette and then kinda try to fit in the other colors, I mean, as experience comes, you can see which colors are off and which not. It's just a matter of practice, just like you can tell if an arm seems twisted or an eye wonky. And yeah, you're right about the face, though I have no idea why lol, gotta practice more, then I'll see such things myself.

    shamandalie, haha thanks, but no I won't slow down! Fear is what drives me. I gotta keep moving!

    jpedro, thanks

    Aurélie, darling, sooo great to have you back! And yeah I'll keep fighting on that structure front

    Flaskpost, thanks!

    Tec, dude, you're being too nice! Thanks man!

    Trashy, haha thanks, here's some icecream for you! *gives Trashy icecream*

    dchan, thank you

    flamable, thanks man, and I catually eat and sleep and attend lectures a lot O_O But that's about it, I try to do not much except art in my leisure time, although over the past week I've been slacking off horribly. And yeah, I did work digital before I joined here, started in.... early summer of 2007, about a year ago now Look, this one's not even a year old: click Thanks for the critque too, yeah I gotta pay more attention to stuff like that

    Chris_Grisham, thank you


    Phew, so many replies! You're all such great people. I hope I didn't forget anyone!

    So errm, the reason I wasn't updating is that I was kind of rethinking my whole approach to form and structure, after Lauren (navate) who is an amazing person kicked my butt in a cinvincing way over at pixelbrush. So I did tons and tons of studies of faces which all looked shit, resulting in me having nothing to show at all. On top of that, Faust challenged me so i had to do some bigger painting for that as well. Ah all's well now, I hope to get into my daily routine again now, including more studies and exercises targeting my weaknesses with form and structure.

    So, first, here's the challenge piece... took quite some time, over 20 hours in the end. Learned a lot
    (Huh? Embedding via the attachment manager's not working.)

    Sketchbook pages! All from head. My anatomy sucks so bad Dx Not only that, lol.
    (see below)

    An illustration for that kindergarten project... remember, I study computer science (Angewandte Informatik) which is SO boring, so this is actually the only creative part of a small project of an unimportant side-subject lol. The rest is, like, transistors and math.
    (damn attachment manager, that one with the stupid animals)

    And a doodle
    (that one with the planes)


    So that's it for now, I hope to be able to update regularly again from now on

    ha , nice about the time you started digital , i kinda started taking interest in drawing more , in fact in august i've made my first portrait , and digital paint in February, enough about me , you call that slacking , c'mon man . A little break once in a while is good. Maybe that's the reason for some banal mistakes.
    The blood thirsty elf looks good , but whats the story behind that. Oh the main arm , needs to be close to the body , looks detached. but for the anatomy is good. see ya...

    Yay you're updating I already left you a comment on the challenge piece with Faust over at DA, you can just check it there! It's a lovely piece, her expression is a killer (haha, literally). The other pages are good, the kindergarten project is just too cute! Really nice and fun colouring.

    As for the "colour/form/comp./" guys, I guess you have a valid point. Comfort zones is probably the biggest problem most artists face, so it makes perfect sense, what you said. Gotta get out of those!

    It's really inspiring to see you're rethinking your approach and routine, I'm looking forward to see what comes out of that

    nice update, dude! Liking the first painting a lot. Maybe you shold work over her ear once more, that glow looks a bit off, since it doesn't make too much sense concidering the light you have chosen.

    Also nice to see some sketchbook pages you've done. the perfectly document all of your weaknesses, that fancy digital painting is able to hide so nicely. That's not a bad thing at all, it shows in a very direct way what you need to work on. Right now I think that you should focus definitely on anatomy and proportions. Your hatching is a bit uncontrolled as well, but I think that this can be ignored right now, since there are more important things to fix.

    Keep going dude, hope to see soem more stuff very soon

    Inspiring amounts of work you get done man makes me want to work so much harder.

    The only thing that bothers me with this piece, is her arm, excluding her hand, area. The edges seem a little lost and it jumps out at me a bit. I think if you fixed that it would be awesome .

    Keep em coming man.

    ~Faust~, haha thanks, spheres are a great shading exercise! Definitely fun, and this way I can cover up my anatomy weaknesses

    flamable, thanks mate, and yeah, you seem to be like me, in the beginning I just did a little, but with time it really starts to grow on you, art, that is, haha SO much stuff to be tried and discovered! Always fun, never boring. Yay. Thanks for the hints too, yeah I kinda lack feeling and understanding of structure so I always make such stupid mistakes haha. Gotta work harder.

    selfu, I don't really know if it was the right thing to do, they say paonting is 90% drawing and at that time I wasn't drawing at all lol. But I guess it's just backwards, a lot of people I see that started as drawers have trouble getting into colors, with me it's kinda the other way round, or so it would seem. Hmm, I need to practice more.

    Asa! Wheee~ Thanks for the nice words, and yeah, we gotta kill those comfort zones. Argh~ So hard. As is that rethinking, but it was kinda necessary, maybe. I don't know, I just... like to draw. Haha.

    Surion, tyvm!

    Ash888, thanks

    Gloominati, whooo thanks man! Hey what's your real name? Mine's Hannes Yeah that ear's off, and YEAH, my sketchbook pages have no mercy for me and my weaknesses. Daaaaaaaaaaamn. Haha I'm totally looking forward to having killed all of them and being able to do awesome stuff. Thanks buddy!

    Miles_, you little devil! Thanks! You're the one who makes me work harder, because you're so darn good at your age! Thanks for the advice on the edges, didn't pay attention to that area I guess D: Damn my laziness.

    40 minute SP in SAI! Dude, I look kinda gay on this one, and kinda old. Don't know about the latter, but the first is definitely not true.
