hellooo! thanks for dropping by my sketchbook!
nice to see so much "traditional" media work - its something i keep meaning to do, so keep it up
Thanks for swinging by my sketchbook. I really dig what you're doing with the dragons. They are obviously identifiable as dragons, but they have a unique flare that makes them yours. I really love the watercolor/ink cityscapes you're doing. You're really onto something with those. Keep it up!
That owl and the pussycat book is really cool! The acrylic is wonderful, and the inks are very unique and special. Everything Troubadour said is bang on. Drawing from life is important! Here's a site that is interesting simply because it shows the anatomy of a generic dragon. If you right click the pic, and they go view image, you get the whole thing. Link Have you ever thought of going into a pet store and seeing if they will let you draw some of the lizards? Maybe you could give a drawing to them as incentive!
In terms of filling out info for every post, here's the reasoning why. Quite important I think! Link
Thanks everyone. I will have to get back into the habit of drawing more from life and doing more studies, but I'm pretty overloaded with uni work at the moment so any personal drawing time I've wanted to draw fun things!
Here's some uni stuff... Probably not that interesting for you guys to look at. Experimenting with textures, use of photographs and such. It's all traditional media. Bin liners, clay, acrylic, photographs, bleech, ink, rust, soil, glue...
Great sketchbook, the dino in post #63 looks awesome! For some minor crits, some of the leaves around the creature are a bit distracting, partially because they're a bit bright. I think adding some neutral washed to the foliage areas to push them back a bit (especially the foliage to the left of the dino's head). Keep up the good work!
wow you have some nice paintings, im not really into abstract stuff but #67 3 looks pretty cool
Going nicely, looking promising!
Considering environment and 3D senses: I think it would be beneficial to investigate color theory more, and to compose scenery with creatures really in them (not only in front).
Also: movement! Try some flying and running dragons.
Hey HAJiME, great looking sketchbook! really strong work with the dragons and the dinosaurs, and I really like these experiments you've posted. The texture and energy in them has a really nice quality; always good to mess around with more experimental sorts of methods, never know what you can pull from it to help your work.
Keep working hard either way, everything is looking good!
I like the textures but I'm not sure if the flash from the camera is washing away some of the colors.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
