    J Flod - sketchbook- updated 1 May

    Welcome to my sketchbook.

    My background is in 3d modelling and I would really like to improve my ability to draw concepts and develop ideas.

    My focus is on characters since that is what really interests me. I try to develop but I am surrounded by engineers at the moment so the feedback I get from them is limited to " nice ". Constructive comments and suggestions are more than welcome.

    I intend to do develop my own ideas as I get confident to do so.

    Nice. Post more.

    I have a similar tendency to get caught up in details. I've found the Wacom/Photoshop combination really liberating. It's loosened me up a lot.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    paintings , done in 3,5 hours

    I think I have been in denial for a long time and finally I got to grips with it. For a very long I have been thinking that I should do more quick colour sketches. Usually I do ink and pen sketches on whatever paper is availible. So I decided not to spend to much time on each painting. I did not set a definite goal but to sort of push myself all the way trough. A rule I also set for myself was is to use different size brushes and NO filters.

    trying to get out of old habits. I usually spend a lot of time on details and miss the general form and flow in the image. I spend around 3-5 hours on each and it was a big challange for me to not get to cought up in really small details.

    photoshop , wacom pen and from photo reference (no overpainting and no colour picking from the photo) .

    Post more of these. They rock. Also, more power to you for not picking colors from a photo. I personally have to do that myself.

    study: clothes

    experimenting with how to draw/paint folds. Feels like I have been looking through to many 5 stars sketch threads here lately. But I post anyway. I hope with time and patience I will improve.

    another study

    crits are welcome and I spent some time on this with both soft and hardbrushes. So i would very much like to get feedback on skin rendering.

    I like your fold - experiment painting. I think it looks very good already. Of course not as good as in one of the great five stars sketchbooks (as you said) but I like it. I think you've got the potential to get a high rated sketchbook if you try to paint and post as often as possible

    I like the Hulk Hogan piece as well (this is his name isn't it?)

    very nice,in general its a very good start,what i see is all ur painting could use a little bit more contrast in colours to help creat the dynamic feel ur looking for,and regarding the anatomy u have some mild problems that can be very easily handled by doing alot of quick sketching,only some proportion problomess nothing serious,goodluck and keep posting
    hope i helped

    You can read your reference pictures really well it seems. Just keep on experimenting with that, try some wild color palettes or something

    It's going well!

    study of skin and a very red ear as a result.

    trying to get some more strong colours in there this time.

    study from reference again. I want to learn colours from "reality" but it is pretty hard to get a grip of. subsurface scattering in skin and I do not see the logic behind it at the moment. some parts make sence like how you get red skin from light bouncing trough the deeper layers of the skin and more yellowish when it is bouncing closer to the surface. practice practice
