    Danny's DAILY!| 27/08/2008 | Its a bietsj on the Bietsj!

    Hello CA.org,

    I have been a long time lurker on these boards my former alias was Jamaludin, I haven't posted very much and my plan was to change that. This is my opening post for my hopefully semi daily sketch book to have fun and improve my skills hopefully haha.

    Crits and advice are more then welcome dont being to hard or to critical just be honest the best you can, and thanks for browsing! I know its not much but this comes al the way from my toes, and its a big improvement for me that it is!

    Oke I really tried but dailys not gonna cut it (yet), so im gonna do what I can. These are little doodles from a few days back, and fiddled some more with the above pictures, and their original form the black and white does look a lot better in my opinion.

    Plus a little environmental piece I tried to do, this is my first go at that, but it looks like a kiddie painting, so im off to the next one!

    Here's a drawing I did today, nothing special but it does look better on paper then scanned in, I lose allot of gradients and lines this way. Anyone any tips on fixing your scanned in drawings so they look more like their real life counterparts?

    Man correct anatomy is a *$@($#!



    Before im off to bed, a quick picture taken from a fast sketch. Gotta find a way to get my pictures across better, because this aint workin



    Good night!

    Did another portret from ref today, its not bad, its just alright,
    but it doesnt pop out. Gotta do better with my values, and it looks sloppy,
    but I learned ALOT, and hey I guess thats what counts ?

    Hope you like it!

    Forgot this quickie, an old concept of mine I suddenly remembered. This is just a quick mop up for myself so that I dont forget this concept, I could practice allot working this out, and thats what I am going to do!

    Hey man, good to see your progressing allot!

    Few problems I'm seeing in your work at the moment, that when put more thought into, could help your rendering allot!

    1) Depth: All your paintings look flat, I see hardly any light direction and thus no full range of shadows you'd normally have
    when you paint something that you want to render realistically. There is color, but lack of value/shading to help sell the
    dimensions to the viewer.

    2) Accuracy: Try to take more notice to the shapes of the face, brushing up on your facial anatomy helps to put thought to
    stroke. I see for example on your girlfriends portrait, that you added a rim highlight to the edge of her nose, this makes her
    nose appear very round.

    3) Colors: everything at the moment looks dull and Grey. All the colors look like they have the same value, intensity and saturation.


    If you could at least try and keep these things in mind then I'd think your another few steps closer to a more convincing rendering.

    Good luck man!

    Looking good danny, your form is starting to read better and you strokes are looking more confident, tho i feel it would be better for you to try some different faces rather than the same one, work on it, learn from it and move on ;-)

    Thanks alot Randalthor, Im glad you feel that way. Yeah you are totally right, Ive noticed when you work to long or hard on something or the same thing, you start to lose focus. So I have learned and wil move on now and use what I have learned in the next one, this way I can post more as wel lol ! Thanks !


    One anatomy exercice, but a bit of a dumb one, the picture had way to little contrast and was way to dark so, on to the next one!

    Well here is another foto study I hope everyone is not getting bored of them ha! I really like this one, not because its great or anything because its ok, but because I learned so much, and really feel like I made big progress. I hope that yall agree, and you like it as well ?! Im sorry I couldnt finish it because it took me some time and just got burned out on the image, on to the next excercise!
