    If you spent more time painting from life your imaginative works will improve. If you want to work for MB you need more visual life going into memory and then being output on the page. Keep it up!!!

    Damn, you remind me a lot of myself in terms of the volume of work you're putting out. At that rate you can't help but improve. Looking good, so keep at it.

    Clearly nobody really needs to push you any harder than you're already pushing yourself. The rewards will come.

    Nice going!

    It's been a long time. I've been busy with life and school, hopefully my last year of non-art related studying. It's all excuses though, I guessed it started off with a drawing block and then school took over. I've been waiting until I have "the ultimate" update haha but I realized I just needed to let go of that and try to make more time for updating this sketchbook. I don't want to make this a huge post but I've honestly really missed all the people and everything you guys have said and helped me with means a lot. On that note, thank you to everyone who commented, critiqued or gave advice. It's more than appreciated. Jason Manley, as always a comment from you means a lot

    I'll try and make this regular again, it's always motivating. I also bought myself a new scanner after my old one stopped working so that should be helpful

    Here's some work I've been doing for school, I'll update the rest as I bring it home from school:

    you finally updated ! I dig the ink stuff ! For the other stuff, keep working ! and for your bro's portrait, you should try to fill all the space, you shouldn't let the blue from the papoer into the face, it creates a weird thing, and doesn't help for the values and colors ! Keep working !

    Congrats on the new feature in ImagineFX! When I saw it, I was like, this looks so familiar! These faces are looking great! You should bust some more expressive faces as well. Lets keep on leveling up!

    Good job on the progress. And those improvements. Keep the fire going on. The piece on page 52 definitely its the best i've seen in this thread, a job well done.

    But im gonna give some of my opinions about the painting on page 51, the one with the red glowing glyphs and a big sea), because by reworking on works like that definitely will boost your skills and techniques to another level.

    Keep in mind that not only objects can affect a painting's compo, different tonal values and contrast can do the same thing, and sometimes better.

    E.g If the surroundings (example the four corners of the painting) are darker, it brings focus to the main character, because its the lightest part, if you keep the whole painting at almost the same percentage of value, its going to get out of focus easily. Think in both ways, why lighten the character up when you can just darken the less important surroundings. Dont try to keep lighting up the main focus area, it'll make you fed up with it, try different approaches.

    And about the background, a clear separation of the front and back will increase a painting's depth of field, it'll make a person look longer at a painting.

    Separating the Foreground and the Background, the foreground are of course are darker, cuz its the closest to the camera, and the background are lighter (but it doesnt means that it can be ignored by adding few patches of colors then blur it). Different color temperatures (warm and cool colors) can also help, adding more interesting depths to the painting.

    And dont overdo highlights, little bright spots like impasto will do.


    Try it out. I'm sure you'll learn something from it. And again, good job! Keep it up! hoping to see more

    oh okay, now the images are working

    damn, theres so much improvement in here over such a short time - even over the last few pages, it's visible. i love how you've used different media to study the same thing in the last post, i suppose that would make you look at the subject from different angles/in different ways... did you find it helped any? you seem to be making some pretty nice headway with portraits anyways
    also, kinda shaming that your 2nd acrylic attempt is better than any of mine... x) looking forward to seeing what you come up with when you have more time to really focus. and, obligatory 'keep it up!' ;D

    Traditional Painting

    Thank you for all the feedback guys, I really appreciate it and I'll reply with my next post hopefully

    Here's a painting that really pushed me, it was such a steep learning curve as its my 3rd acrylic. Done in acrylics, time i am guessing roughly 12 - 16 hours with about 4 hours on line work. It's size is around A2 I think.
    It was frustrating but definitely fun and I am somewhat proud of it, hopefully that feeling lasts for a while before I start seeing all the wrong things it haha

    Image quality it terrible, its really killed the colours so I'll try to get some better photos when I get another camera

    Heya Nibras,

    Incredible improvements as of late.

    As a quick critique/advice, in the drawings and portraits, the hatching looks rather forced, as if you know what it's supposed to be doing, but you're not quite sure how to make it do it. Try wrapping your marks to the planes and forms of what you're drawing, varying the length of the mark to correspond to the shortening and growing of proportion in respect to the perspective and angle of the plane. This can make each mark mean more within the context of the drawing, allowing for economy in what marks you need to make.

    I hope this helps any at all.

    ~Andrew

    yeah big step up! try and block in parts more opaquely though, a lot of the canvas showing through can be detrimental, have you tried painting with some colored underpainting? then the original canvas showing through adds an added layer of depth. either or, big level up! looking forward to more updates!
