    That last post with the running guy has a lot of energy and speed,I suggest that you should finish it,as the sketch is energetic,I think that the finished drawing will be a strong piece as well!

    Cheers!

    MOREEEEE i really think you need to be taking that sketchbook with you everywhere thinking inside it doing crazy things with the paper (Thinking Visually ) its not all about the anatomy/cast studys ect

    that being said last few posts are lookin bang on

    keep up the hard work

    : thanks for droppin by the ol SB !


    i feel like CA and the tablet are great ways to hone technical skill theres more though...
    talk to all the artists who you adore visit local gallery openings ect


    What makes you tick and why.... keep setting goals also watch the super awesome BBC Series " The power of art : Simon Schama "

    stay inspired its hard that will keep you working the hardest though.

    Zorcron: YAAAAH! Im doing it, taking the sketchbook around! I'll check out the series too, thanks!
    Alternative: 8 days since school started *cries* Hahaha

    =================================================

    Busy busy busy with school. Managed to do some studies and other shiz in my sketchbook that's not worth showing. I'll do more pencil studies soon though and more pencil characters.

    Here's some studies and a really crap trial at enviros.

    I set my self a schedule that's to my liking so things should hopefully start rolling, but I feel pretty lost, I don't know what to focus on to move forward since there's just so much!

    i would say to focus on improving your drawing skills more and more, by improving your anatomy and such.Lol these are the boring stuff but thats also the key to expand your visual communication.But ok that doesnt mean i dont like the improvement you have made in your rendering and values.Very nice progress here.
    Now more specific the head seems streched in the vertical axis, probably because the eyes are not formed in the middle part of the construction sphere of the head, and they take the place of the nose.Its like you form the face under the circle, its like you start with an already streched skull or something.
    Dont worry and such because you are already improving a lot.So relax and keep going mate!!!

    Heya Lilnebo. Ha I forget some people still have school, unlucky haha!!

    Nice update, I think this face is really good. Greyscale enviro looks better at the mo. For the coloured stuff, just try shifting the hues more in the shadows and the light, makes the painting more interesting!

    Comparing all this stuff to the work I was seeing like a year a go. You've come a long way. It's just a matter of time. Keep it up and when you're done with school you're gonna be awesome!

I found it(Your SB) a while ago and have keep tabs on it for the longest time. lol I have nothing other then that to say really. lol keep it up I guess! Happy Trails

    ==================================================

    Gotta run again. 5 hour art exam tomorrow O.o

    Then I got advice from jordy cuz he's awesome and moved it to this:

Size:  88.0 KB

    Then some value change and repainting:
    Name:  FaceFinal.jpg
Views: 521
Size:  85.6 KB

    Now it's gonna be a facesheet with different concepts, Im gonna scrap the bottom one cuz I don't like it:
    Name:  FacesheetWiP3.jpg

Size:  125.1 KB

    It might look weird because Im still getting used to the different colours and light setting on the laptop.

    Need more ideas then I'll vary it a bit.

    Thanks guys and Night CA!

    Hi Lil!

    Long time now, and I see you've been workin' Most people keep saying this is an amazzing SB, and I think they are right, but I think you could do more, if you stopped and reflected more on what you did. I think you should put in more time for studies and try and get more into the construction and buid\ld up of form, so that you could figure out poses and such easier. you also seem to have kind of an issue with weighting, so study up, that is my advice!

    KEEP ROCKING YOU CRAZY BUGGER!

    great work on those portraits
    These a a real improvement!
    A few crits tho:
    The size of the head is a bit too big.
    The eyes should be at the middle right now they are kinda at... 3/8'ish :p
    You can also make them a bit wider. The width should be equal to the distance chin-eye brows. It think making them shorter should be enough tho.
    it's really good to see that you're working based on basic planes too
    Keep on posting girl!

    Wow, i'm just dazzled. Great progress overall, just try to get more looseness in your characters, try to avoid drawing stick figures when you're starting out a new drawing(I'm assuming you do). Or just draw a curving line and use it as a starting point for ur character. I'd also like to see more color studies/work in here. Keep on sketching!

    Smile nice goal!

    I wish I had know the importance of anatomy at your age...really! I know it now though and see that you are practicing as well soooooooooooooo... you could probably benefit from this book as well. It shows you all the muscle insertion and origins...every bone ...its awesome...I went to a special anatomy class and this was the book that one of the instructors used, he said it was very accurate and he has actually gotten to look at cadavers and been to dissections... Plus he is an awesome sculptor.. so I trust his judgment.

    Good luck and nice start!

    Great improvement over the years. Keep it up mate and you'll reach far

    When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw.
    She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?"

    Hey guys, late night so I gotta run but here's what I did today.
    Just studied some hogarth and tried to break it down, it's good working with pencils again and having some time to study.

    I wanna be updating atleast 4 times a week just because it's a nice extra push to work harder.


    Of course I'm gonna reply later/tomorrow but I appreciate the advice sooo much, I learn something new every time I update, and that's just from the comments O.o

    My art exam was very hard , I'd never painted with acrylics before and I've only painted traditional once and that was with poster paints.....
    I trashed the first painting and started another one which I finished in 2 hours, it was supposed to be a 5 hour painting lol but My first one was just so crap lol

    ================================================== ========

    Studying
    Tryina get good! Must do more stuff, self portraits and all. Really in the mood for rendering these days, It's all the Daniol love (hear that dan, I love you hhaha)

    Waaaaaaaaah, draw draw draw, gotta draw! Nice to see some good ol' Hogarth studies. As for crits, just study your ass off, work on your structure and basic knowledge. And liiife studies! Also, don't render part by part. Your drawing should be a coherent whole and not some random parts slapped together. Don't use too many values when you're starting out, 2 at a max. And about those acrylics, just do a lot of them. I fail 9 out of 10 paintings so you don't have to feel embarrassed.

    Awesome!! I like them!
    Though there is something i just see right now, his nose looks a bit weird with the rather broad highlight on the right side (from our view). it makes the nose bow a bit in a strange way.
    Anyways! we want to see more! drawdrawdraw!

    Great updates lilnebo The concept sheets really help out, I do one or two a day in the sketchbook I carry around with me, and they sure do help when it comes to posing and costuming. Keep fleshing out your studies, looks like you are only spending an hour or so on them, and you need to keep working on them, you will start to notice and see more and more characteristics about your subject that will make your piece stronger as long as you paint what you see that is. I like to paint the shapes that I see, I go for the easiest shape to paint and I try to paint it as accurately as I can, and then move to the surrounding shapes. As long as that first shape is accurate, I can judge better when painting the surrounding shapes, and the end result will look correct. Hope this makes some sense

    Coool stuff. Big improvement again. Some really cool ideas. Just yea he is still a kinda smoothed faced guy. Guys dont tend to be that smooth. We're all fucked up ya know. Get in some more definition of the difference muscles underneath the face and dont render so smoothly. It's almost as if it's cell shaded. And you need some more defined bottom eye lids like i kept on showing in my overpaints ;p. Also a cast shadow on the eyeballs from the upper eye lids etc. and blend some more instead of heavily defined one colour areas. BUt overall really great improvement. You're really pushing it. (:
