    DSG 1381: SHOWDOWN BETWEEN BUNNY AND THE TROPHY-SKIN WEARING KILLER OF CUTE




    Lost in deep thought, Jonas did not notice he had company until the clear mountain breeze brought with it the smell of mangy fur, urine and blood.
    He felt his heart begin to race at an insane pace. This was it. He carefully reached out for his revolver...

    Yup, you got the talent for it.
    I'll give you a few tips on improving:

    Lines-
    You might not use lines at all, but once that painting is done, the one who sees it will see lines in your work.
    A sillouette is a line, for instance.
    Try to make your lines more defined and non-shaky.
    If you paint, this might mean painting a line (that looks shaky) then paint in the colour next to it to "tidy it up" a bit, then again with the colour, then tidy some more etc.
    This is tedious, time-craving work, but after a while you'll notice you don't have to spend so much time going back and forward, and eventually you wont have to do it at all.

    "block-quality"-
    You have a great sense of depth (tae the latest image for instance). But you need to concider he fact that values are more uniform.
    What I mean is: Your trees have branches that clearly are in the background, and thus have a lighter value. But yours also have some smaller areas of darker value on them. This gives a sensation that if I blurr the image I wont be able to tell the front from the background. Or atleast have difficulties with it.

    Keep it up, you're getting there!

    I like the peach, it has an "oil on canvas" sensation I think. Nice bold colours too.

    Hey there Gorg... Something you need to keep a slight checkup on is the values.
    If you remove the colour from this last image and make it grayscale, then it will look a bit flat.
    One thing that helps, if working in photoshop) is to have an "adjustmentlayer" that desaturates the image on top of all the other layers. Then you can just click the layer on and off. It will help you get a feel for what colours are close to oneanother in values.

    Otherwise, looking good.

    You're definately putting in alot of time and effort. But, I think you could imporve alot more by doing more fundamental stuff with pencil and paper. Perhaps you do but looking at your work I get the idea you tend to do most of your sketching on wacom. I believe you will improve in your digital work when you get a better idea of light and value and most importantly form.
    Try and carry a sketchbook with you everywhere you go.
    It's pretty general advice and you proably know this but just throwing it out there. Anyway, keep it up, and be the best you can be.

    Hmm that sounds like a good idea CamSyko, you are right about me using photoshop for sketching and i have neglected drawing with pen and paper a bit since i got it bout a year ago. I will strive to do more work the traditional way for a while atleast. Thanks for the advice!

    So to help boost my progress i need to do studies, and lots of em. Thats why im posting this:

    DAILY TRAINING REGIME

    1: Anatomy - atleast 40 minutes

    2: Selfportrait - One at the very least

    3: "Reffs" Drawing using references, be it woods or be it men! One is required but two is preffered.

    I will probably add other stuff there but for now that will suffice.
    And todays harvest: 2 clint eastwood reffs, one selfportrait and some hands.
