    I love your spring monster! the pencilling looks really nice, and you seem to have a pretty good imagination when it comes to creating monsters. practice everything (colours values, anatomy, MOORE!), push yourself and have fun doing it I think you can

    good luck!

    Hey Atas, nice start to your sketchbook ^^ I really like spring in post #23; the form is very elegant and so interesting as well.

    For suggestions, I think it would be very beneficial to you to take some time for color studies. Do a quick thumbnail of some random object with a cast shadow (like a sphere), add some shading to it (nothing fancy), then pop it into photoshop and do some variations in the color. Pay special attention to shadows and highlights and how you can use different colors in the background to pop the foreground, etc. Think about analogous and complementary colors and how they affect the contrast in the img. If you don't what those are, look them up. It can also be very educational to take a look at some of your favorite paintings and photographs (historical or modern art), take them into photoshop, and use the color picker around various areas to see what colors they were using and think about how they affect the img.

    Great work so far, keep posting ^^

    Thanks Dierat that is realy good advice, I've been trying to do some colour recently because its not something I've really looked at before (just been "colouring stuff in" not using colour to add to /enhance a piece if you know what I mean?)

    Sometimes it seems like I need 10 brains to focus on all the different areas there are to understand! lol Line brain, form brain, tone brain, texture brain, colour brain, composition brain, content brain etc......

    but I shall continue to try

    Argh! I'm rubbish I never remember to update this thing, and I never get round to scanning stuff in as using my scanner is somewhat akin to wrestling with angry beavers. However I will not give up I will keep popping things in here randomly as and when, and who knows one day I may get a new scanner/office set up and update regularly lol.

    first a quick study from a small toy:

    Wow my sketchbook is back - Jason must have magically retrieved it from the stomach of those monsterous trolls I was actually kind of looking forward to starting a new one because I don't really like the work so far but maybe looking at the bad stuff is good motivation to improve! so..... My scanner is working again (hooray for dads who know about technology, lol) here are some quick doodles from a few weeks ago:

    And this that I did whilst watching the devil wears prada:

    I'm trying to focus on people for a bit as I seem to always end up doing creatures and people are so much harder so I want to get better at them!
