you man sometimes throw some pieces that i think are ahead of u.i mean you even pass your self and become even more awesome.I really love the dragonthing and the portrait above it.
keep up stabilizing the improvements!!!
haha, not sure if awesome is the word
I experiment alot, so it's very hit or miss for me, and more often than not, it's the latter.
I think I'll try and put some detail on this
½ hour before bed, got an idea so tried it out quick.. one piece
Had an hour to do whatever so I decided to just take up the wacom+ps combo
Continuing to lighten up the theme in my thread...
I like your base texture.. the first post on this page is very cool, (the dragon, etc..),loved how you used the saturated colors. I would advice you to try work more on the details, beyond the "dirty" brushstrokes, which are cool but maybe need some more work sometimes.
Thanks alot for taking the time Ricardo;
Yes, I will try my hardest to learn how to make detail, took some time off drawing etc. and realized that is is indeed very important for the viewer. After not looking at things that I've done in the past, and not having stuff lately, my old works seemed very bland, and am ashamed I let that happen. But like I said, I'll try my best!
Here's a two hour piece, making details felt more at home now that I let it boil for awhile, ofcourse this is just 2 hours. and I should be able to use 5-6 in the future if I want to be able to make something worth looking at, another thing to work on.. damn patience... or rather the lack of it. :|
great!!! specially the dragon illu on 576.It have great texturing, lovely composition(my eye enjoys traveling around the image), you make some nice focus by adding some blurry elements etc.
Nice nice i will make whitebeard the king
I like the first version.The effects on the second make it distracting somehow
Nice play with the red and green colors.
Keep up improving the style.I am not sure how but because i see improvement i guess you know what you are doing mate.
Good understanding of fundamendals always help in improvement with everystyle, so i guess some side training on the basics can do some more good
keep up the good work!!!
Hey Kostas, I got in to school, I think we are gonna have some nude stills here, so I am hoping on improving on drawing with that. Drawing bottles and shit just feels too boring, I know it shouldnt be, but I am lazy, wish I was not.... :-\
Thanks alot a la bapsi, this one was made with a mouse at school while we had some "this is photoshop, you can edit pictures like dis, and dees are filters" kindof lesson.
I didn't experiment since we were using a mouse, so I just stuck to the basics, which does look better, but it doesn't mean I learn more by doing this, though I was able to focus on the forms more since I had alot less to think about.
maybe it looks more refined when it's a bit smaller than orig.

These were done with a mouse
took this one a bit further, maybe shouldn't of posted..
this is my first time with a spray can...
2h in corel painter.... might refine this another day since I used a highish rez
i love very much the work in 585#, and its bigger version works very well because you worked on it great
Spray can work is awesome
and the depth in the last one works really well, the bad thing is that the foreground is rough and the viewer expect to be able to read the forms easier there.
hahaah no worries i feel you.I only paint these things in class in the first semester and i was totally bored.Then i used to do concept sketches and stuff till they understand how i work and what things i like to do, firstly they were somehow insulting me but i kept pushing and they finally understood because i was doing my own studies at home(what u have seen here in my sb) and sometimes i painted small studies of some bottles there to learn more about color and tone from observation and stuff)
I just couldnt bear doing these stuff all the time
Just enjoy it and keep learning!!!
keep improving your great style!!!
Hi Lakka! skimmed through your sketch book! its awesome you have a lot of variety in themes going from portraits to future scapes. your most recent with the super beast emerging from its fiery tomb is primo and captivates great feeling. i also saw you had mixed feelings on the red haired impoverished viking figure. i love it. although the subject is not vary powerful to me the blue-violet highlight and the complementarities in the painting is really cool.
at school just trying somethings on the pic with ps, thanks alot for the replies, I'll post again tomorrow or something and try to take this image somewhere...
Things I'll try to incorporate; Hard edges, and refinement of focal points, depth
So; Thanks alot for the feeedback on the dragon person, I tried to play with it at school and make the foreground more powerful, kostas, just scribbles and such(had a mouse).
Chris, hey, nice of you to point it out, I tried to get somekind of vibe with colors on this one I'm posting now, your comment made me think!
Parsa, thanks for the support, I'll try, or well, have been trying but I guess I fail at realizing where the hard lines are supposed to go and where not.
Peregrin, Thanks, I was really trying to get the scale to work, alot of my stuff has been miniatyre like, so I tried to make this one more dynamic! So, I'm glad you noticed!
so, school's a bitch and had a few mins to make this...
Thanks for visiting Jonathan, and thanks for the kind words!
Totally in love with your style, great mood, great emotion
Help me improve my drawing skills by commenting my sketchbook
great improvement in these last 20 pages, and you are still going so nice work on carrying on the commitment!
Hope to see some more pencils sometime soon, just because there haven't been any for a while and its a skill a lot of people lose sight of as they get better with colour!
Keep it up
Hey, thanks alot both. Maybe I can take some snapshots of things I've done at school and post them!
