Kilon:File kalosorises sto Conceptart.org (welcome to CA )
Thnx for your comment.Look dont let music entirely(i play music sometimes to get motivated)
Well listen, first of all start a sketchbook here and be ready to draw everyday at least one sketch.(i am telling you this cause you wanna basically reach a certain level in some time)
I suggest you to start doing anatomy studies so that you will be able to do characters for your works.I have made a good enough anatomy understanding project(that is currently improving day by day) and maybe it will be able to help you learning anatomy faster.You may have seen these sketches(anatomy understanding) in my previous posts.
Ok lets not tell it all in here, i wait you to make a sketchbook and show me and all the CA community your works.I am sure all people here will offer help for the best result, all you need basically is the right mood and motivation.
After you make a sketchbook, place the link to your sketchbook to your signature so that will be easier to find.
Nadesican:Thank you .Look you are right as we both agree that i have this problem.It all started when i was(and i am currently in this path)focused in reality and human anatomy etc.My old anime drawings were anime but after i focused on realism they lost their anime soul.After i will finish the needed studies that i am doing, i will then set foot again in anime/manga style to expand the two schools of art(anime/manga , realism/comic) in a balanced way.
Thnx for your comments guys, i will post really soon
No I wont abandon music, I will have to agree with you here , music can give alot of motivation. I was thinking of combining both music and drawing at some level , but will see. I am satisfied with my music but I am not satisfied with my drawing.
I have already downloaded some good ,anatomy and perspective e-books , I will follow your advice and study them carefully. Thanks for the advice of the sketchbook, I will do it as soon as I finish my first studies and have something to upload. Thank you very much for your advice , you are very helpful.
I love your coloring experiment you used so moody colors and I see improvement on every study you post. You surely motivate me.
I really like that creature on your last update!
I look for its nostril on the beak, thinking: "here goes the eye", and i get surprise to see that the eye is way before that. Its really a nice way to surprise and unsettle the viewer, Its really a nice design.
Your studies are, as always, amazing man.
Keep it up! cheers!
Great Dino-bird-thingy. Its well designed, and your use of perspective makes it really seem huge! Though in a functional position, I wonder why a four-legged animal of that size would have weenie little arms like that..
Hahah man these sketchbook pages are sooooooooo awesome!
Thank you for all the support i've been away for a while for reasons
But these studies and the works are super sweet
The figures are just awesome like awesome!
I can't wait to see your next updates
creatures are super cool and i love all the speech bubbles
Nadesican:thnx .Well ill let you use your imagination as you like .Maybe the little hands will make it a special pet/character of a story as a unique creature of its species with a genetique problem in hands
lilnebo:Yeahhhh little lil is back!!! thnx for the comment, i cant wait to see your uploads
Your figures and understanding is getting even more solid yet...the last page with a man and woman sitting down...from reference or from your head? You are also placing some nice 'landmarks' on them which adds a lot to the realism...such as nicely formed knees, elbow suggestions etc.
Also think about suggesting the 'iliac crest of the pelvis' (looked it up for ya!), and perhaps emphasizing your feet a little more...sometimes they seem so simple and yet can have interesting shape.
With your colored piece I think it suffers from too many heavy darks...it doesnt encourge as much eye movement, or depth, or focal point as strongly as it could. Try and lighten the BG trees and see how much your character will pop out. Good start
Jakers:Thnx pal .I will try to make some experiments with it .By the way when i use references i write a notice next to the sketch (all my works are non-ref, and thats a goal)It doesnt mean that my understand came from nowhere, but from good observation and memorization
i try to work until my head blows up!!!I need to become better so i draw and draw and draw again and again.Now i am a little into making my coloring skills better.Focusing in hard full opacity(some with some less opacity) brushes.
I am a noob lvl in this one, so i will keep studying ways to improve as fast as i can.
Update!!! thnx for support guys
If i had a drawing tablet this was gonna be easier to succeed
