    Koof da noob..SB

    So, finally decided to take art seriously and actually practice... and work on the fundamentals. I'm 14.5 years old and live in Japan and i'm very lazy...blah blah
    heres some stuff from the past 2-3 days
    the terrible cg landscape (with ref)took over 1 hour, more than the intended 15-20 min (mouse. photoshop CS2)
    used posemaniacs for the poses. again, it took me nearly 1.5 hours to do all of them.. i had better get faster
    and finally some random stuff i did in school.
    BTW, constructive criticism will be great!

    Kudos to being 24 dude, one of the few in this lot of talented people. Fortunatly for you I can relate =D
    I love the fact you are doing full body studies, I never feel like sitting down and doing them, I always make up some petty excuse to telly myself.
    You're doing stuff pretty good though, I don't really have any crits, but then again I'm not really a good critter since I can't do things to well myself. Anyway, keep up the good work, I can't wait to see more =D

    hi koof, i think your going in the right direction but you should spend more time on your work some of it looks too sketchy even for a sketchbook, saying tha my mind always wanders after a couple of hours! the mountain range show great promise

    Your las work is specially beautyfull, keep going like that!.

    I recommend you to study andrew loomis books, starting with "succesfull drawing":
    http://www.fineart.sk/index.php?cat=1 (warning: artistic nudity)

    Couple of advices: Stay away from digital for a while since its harder to learn that to learn from traditional mediums as acrylics and brushes and pencils.
    When you paint, first use a very big brush and paint the big shapes first, dont focus on the details at first. Then slowly go filling the details with decreasing the size of the brush, dont do everything with a small sized brush from the start. Also, first do a black and white sketch of what you want to paint, correct it until it looks as best as you can do, shade it with black and white only deciding on the cast shadows and light direction,and then paint over it, it will serve you as a guide making your job of chosing colors easier. Start from the generals and then do the details, do the big things first then the smaller, see the bigger things first and simplify them in your mind deleting all its details and paint that and after that focus and see the details.

    Keep going like that, you are doing great, Jesus bless you.

    ChuanMing thanks. i 'll definitely try to do more pencils and anatomy. perhaps when i get my hands on some anatomy resources..

    ....procrastination overtook me the last few weeeks. bleh at least i did poses nearly everyday. i changed my apporach to poses, doing 15 second warmups and then 30 second ones. can get much more poses down in shorter time.

    bad photo study, 2.5 hrs?:
    b&W stuff from head, 1-1.5 hrs each

    Koof,

    I really like where you are going with your color schemes...

    I think you should keep drawing from life... My favorite class at SCAD was Life Drawing as it had the most effect on all my other stuff. Anatomy books have always been a great reference for me as well. I can see where your developing your rendering of form, especially in the last two... As your drawing skills increase, so will your shape and form.

    It looks like you already have a good foundation for both drawing and color. It will be great if they develop hand in hand.
