    Shoot Into The Stratosphere!

    Hey all, this is my new sketchbook thread!
    Quick intro: I'm 20. I'm currently enrolled in the Technical/Scientific Illustration course at Sheridan College in Oakville, ON. I'll be graduating in 2011. I enjoy drawing and eating pancakes. Someday I hope to combine the two, either by drawing pancakes or eating my drawings.

    I like critiques a lot and they're always appreciated. Thanks for looking!

    Here's some fairly recent stuff I've done, around May-ish.

    Little update somethin somethin.

    WIP digipaint Ive been chipping away at couple nights. It was largely an experiment in contrast: I rarely hit my darks and lights hard/soon enough and my paintings can get pretty washed out as a result. Im still picking at the background (going to play with methods for creating depth, maybe make it less abstract) and finish the legs.

    hey buddy, i would work on giving your profiles of heads more.. to give them more pop. they seems to be flatter thus awkward compared to the rest of the figure in some pictures... also looks like your hands are a little too big in some.. i dunno maybe its intentional in that case cool. idunno just nitpick crits for now.. feels like forever since i critiqued someone

    really like the third and forth sketchs of the first update would like to see these digi paintings when they are fully explored. keep it up!

    Ryn -

    Great stuff. I'm really liking the new sketchbook, and I am in the same place - trying to get my head back in the game, putting myself back on a routine, and finishing pieces instead of just sketching and studying.

    That said, you're far ahead of me with the mad skillz. Proof of the value of hard work!

    In the latest post, I love what you did with the sketch of the dancing/posing woman from earlier - the acrylic painting is definitely more powerful, albeit a bit scary - which I like. My only crit there is that, even though she's fairly distorted, her head seems a little too far away or perhaps her neck is shifted too far towards her left shoulder. Other than that, it's really nice, and impressively blended for acrylic.

    Your brushwork has some nice elements to it - how long have you been painting? Ever do oils?

    What I really love is this one:

    http://img82.imageshack.us/img82/9331/44078027fk0.jpg

    Really great job on perspective, wardrobe, and I adore the hair and expression. What a lovely character!!

    Your core shadow study is excellent as well.

    It would be cool if you could also include some hint as to the time you put into each piece for critique purposes - I like to know if someone has a piece that looks rougher than usual if it's because they just whipped it out in less time than usual.

    Your post-work sketch has a nice feel to it, but has some balance issues it seems like. love the costume, the hair is a little ... broom like (sorry, it's the best thing I could think of), and she seems to lean a bit to one side. But very interesting character, all the same. Love the shoes.

    Great stuff - keep posting!

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    Joel - Definitely good call on the profiles being flat, and that's actually come up before. I think my problem is that I tend to go to a 'formula for how to do a profile-shape' and don't consider the actual form. I'll keep the hands thing in mind too. I used to make them too small, then Stan told me one class that it's always better to make hands too big rather than too small. Guess I took it to heart?
    Anywho thanks for the feedback mate, very appreciated! Too bad you can't update your sb, I'd love to return the favour. Hope you're doing well.

    Maldrin - Wow, awesome feedback! Thanks a lot!
    Lady painting.. I -totally- see what you mean about the neck and I absolutely agree that it looks off. I can't even believe I didn't notice that before! I'm going to touch it up on the actual painting. I super appreciate the comment on blending, it gave me a ton of trouble and I had to try lots of new stuff to get it to work. I have done oils before but have lately been doing acrylics since it's what I was taught in school. I've been painting for probably a year and a half at this point.
    I will include time estimates on uploads of finished stuff from now on, good idea.
    Good call on balance issue on the sketch too! I have had that problem for years so thanks for reminding me that I need to practice that to fix it once and for all.
    Again thanks for the GREAT feedback! I wish I could return the favour, but you don't have a sketchbook, do you? Looked through your website but there isn't much utility there for me to leave feedback.

    shamandalie - Thank you very much!

    Landscape! Another instance of trying to get colours right, and to hit the correct values quickly. Took about an hour.

    I saw this lady at the bus stop. She was so funny I had to draw her. :3

    The WIP I posted before is just nooot working out. Too many issues cropping up as a result of terrible/no planning, no thought to composition during the sketch, etc. To finish it would be a lot of backtracking so I'm going to let it die. Came to this conclusion after rendering the face, so I may as well post what I did. :3
