    Hello, i'm from singapore as well, that last one is looking good, be sure to double check the proportions - the eyes aren't lining up properly at the moment. Values on the face could use some more highlights, doesn't look quite finished yet. It can be difficult replicating a reference - focus on the general value areas and don't get caught up on smaller details. Once you've blocked in the painting accurately, the rest is just rendering. Good job on rendering the hands, watch that index finger on the right though. What design course were you in btw?

    Hey awesome! Another Singaporean!
    The community here seems to be growing!

    You need to work on your observation skills. Draw ALOT from life it helps.
    Also your values need work. I especially like that painting in post #26 from the office. Do more of those.

    I could also use my own advice haha.

    Hey...maybe if we find enough Singaporeans we can start a sketchgroup. Gather on a weekend to sketch together. I tried starting one awhile ago but nobody replied to my thread

    the ANGRY filipino - Thank youuuu for checking up on me again! Nopey, i didnt lose my pencil Thanks for the comments! More sleep more work!

    Farsh - Hi dude, i'm surprised to find someone THAT good in Singapore. You've got awesome stuff in your sketchie. Like i said i was from SIDM in NYP but now i'm just earning minimum wage doing something totally not drawing. @_@
    Trying hard to get better though but my work time is crazy and usually at the end of the day i'm too pooped out to do anything. :/

    Thanks for the critique, i really appreciate it and will work on the values and proportion more!

    mc2mc2 - Hello mello! Thanks for dropping by and the advice as well! Would love to have a sketchgroup but like i said, time is so constrained. :/ If we were to start one, i'm not sure if i could keep up. But if you do, please inform me! I would love to drop by when i'm free.

    crackin - Thanks for your words of encouragement!


    Okay, now that the fasting month have started, i can spend more time drawing instead of eating! Hehe, just a teeny weeny update.
    Those thumbies that i tagged 'not mine' were done by my other half. He is my inspiration and he draws/paints SO much better than me. He drew that bit to teach me some stuff about proportion. I'm eternally grateful.

    Good to see you working at it. Drawing random stuff never hurts, its a good way to have fun and if you can learn something from it, all the more awesome. Some of your faces still need more work, think of them as objects, and not people. The bottom right corner guy is pretty good though, just be more confident in your lines. For the record, mister spastic tree is awesome.

    Hi shamandalie!

    I wish I could do fleshtones like you can. Your fleshtones are warm and fuzzy!
    His ear looks off though.

    Oh, that headband sketch idea ? Pure genius! You should make a toy out of that!

    I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!

    "I specialise in animation, but we learnt a whole lot there, from motion graphics, digital imaging to crazy 3D stuff. I've always been a neither-here-nor-there kind of person. Meaning jack-of-all-trades and master of none." Haha, I can totally relate. Well, I guess a lot of people can too, but anyways.. nice stuff you have here!

    Lots of good advice here already, not much for me to add on.. Keep painting! and thanks for stopping by my sb!

    Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    the ANGRY filipino - Nah, i'm not good at all. You have to remember that i color pick and you don't. *bows* And you are right, the ears are off when i look at it again. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Oh, since you are in the making toy business, why not you make the headband toy and send one over to me? Hehe.

    Randomself - You are welcome! Just remember to work hard when you're schooling okay? That is where you learn most. Treasure your lecturers and ask them all the questions you can ask!

    I AM AN IDIOT. Thinking that i could try out this week's CHOW. -____- Couldnt get the proportion/color/face/blending/everything actually right so i just decided to stop painting it. I'm making Scheherazade look bad.

    I think i need to go back to basics and start learning to blend/paint again.
    *back to Bumskee's photoshop digital painting thread*

    And here's a couple more drawings.

    ARGHHHHHHHHRRRGGGHHHH pld:

    Your fleshtones are good, and your CHOW isn't as bad as you think it is, might want to try out a few different color combos next time you try something like that. A lot of stuff we do doesn't seem to work at first, gotta experiment. Sometimes you put down the right color and whee, it works. Your drawing is improving, keep going, your blending needs more work, be patient while doing those, right now they look a bit too much like candy floss. (yum) Try using a different set of brushes perhaps?

    Anyway, thanks for dropping by my SB, you're more hardworking than me right now, makes me feel bad, especially since you're working and still finding the time to churn these up. Keep up the good work!

    Great improvements!
    I wouldn't worry about using tools in photoshop to help speed up and improve your workflow and art. Traditional art is a great place to shape up skills without any fancy tools and such.

    Farsh - Thanks so much for the critiques! I try harder!

    Nettle_Mountain - Hey, long time no see! Thank you for dropping by!

    lemming-clone- - Yea, i tend to get easily distracted with technicalities that it sometimes hinders my improvement. Thank you!

    Hmm, look what happens when i put the pencil aside for a while. So embarassing to put these up, but this IS a sketchbook, so you get to see the good, the bad, and the utterly horrible!

    Selamat Hari Raya, and nice selfportrait. Watch out for a few things though, the angle where you're facing in your render is different, i assume its not intentional? If so remember to keep watching out for proportions, not a bad effort at all. Try squinting when you look at reference (dont know if anyone mentioned this to you already), so you it's more obvious where the dark spots and lit areas are. Moar!

    Hey Farshie, thank you for the greetings! Thanks for pointing out all the mistakes i did. When i look at it closely, i realise even the eyes are off. @_@ I'll do the squinting technique more next time.

    Now eat some plums.

    Thanks for dropping by, appreciate it! Nice fruits, but wah lao, what happen to that girl in #51? She doesn't look too happy...
    Poses are quite good, keep doing those, will improve if you keep it up. Don't get caught up in detailing individual parts , try to think of things in terms of structure.

    So far so good, let's see what your next update brings...

    Farshie- Thank YOU for dropping by dude! My emotions affect my work so i guess i was angry then. That is the sad thing about me. Any negative emotions and my drawings goes down the drain. I'm still trying to control my negativity nowadays.

    yongs- Hey junior thanks for dropping by my sketchie too! Thanks for the comment.

    banana from the painting in PS2 thread, my bad gestures, faces, blind contours, and studies from Loomis! Loomis is awesome.

    Hey girl, you're in the right way. Keep studiying and have fun, it's important. In your gesture studies, sometimes, the head is a bit smaller than it would be. And try to update this sketchbook everyday !!! Cheers

    Heya . You have so many great anatomy sketches, something which I need to practice. I really like your scenery work too. It is all looking really good - you have loads of potential.

    Hello

    Thanks for popping by my sketchbook. Nice comment

    Liking your studies, especially the anatomy ones...something I should do more but it is hard with a full-time job I definitely agree with that, so good effort..

    I do have a suggestion that you could try for your skin-tones, something I did in college when studying illustration and that's using contrasting colours for shading. For example I use to use browns and dark reds then someone slapped my wrist and told me to experiment using purples, blues and greens. Then I went and looked at what colours some master impressionists and expressionists used and how and where they applied them and I learnt alot. (studying watercolour techniques is helpful for this too)

    Also a technique tip: If you start by blocking the skin area with whatever you choose as your mid-tone and then apply the shading where necessary and then finally put in your highlights, but whatever do don't use plain white, always use a creamy white. A fantastic teacher I had used oils and he taught me to thin it out and apply it in layers like watercolours so that as you build up the shadow and highlights over the mid-tone and it still shows through and gives you more texture.

    Anway I hope that helps.. See you around
