    Looking for Help to Improve

    Ok well so far I have been agonizing about whether to post a Sketchbook or not. There are so many talented artists here and so many wonderful sketchbooks to enjoy that the idea of adding my own work up here is a little intimidating. Still my desire to improve as an artist and connect with fellow artist has finally pushed me beyond my insecurity. So anyway on with the art. Hope you like what you see, If you do and if you don't please let me know. I'm somewhat of a feedback junkie .

    This is one of my personal favorites I can't really say why. It started out as a simple object study of an old gas mask and then kind of took off with a life of its own.

    These are some more traditional "fine art" type pieces some figure drawings and color studies.

    Ok for the next installment I guess it would be good to explain a couple of things. I'm a pretty avid gamer. I've played rpgs for quite a long time. When I sit down to sketch, a lot of times what I end up drawing are character pictures, villains, or supporting cast for the games that I play in. Recently I've been playing a game based in Warhammer 40k setting, so a lot of my most recent sketches tend to be based around that game. Anyway enough explaining for now.

    After coloring this one I decided that I should start pushing my pictures more. Mostly what I've produced so far is kind of a portrait gallery, but I wanted to add more interest in the pictures. So I've started playing around with more interesting angles and different details.

    This is the Space ork pic I posted in the Critique threads got lots of good advice on this it helped a lot.

    and last for now is a picture that was inspired by a thread on a roleplaying game forum. The thread was titled "What would you look like as a WH40k rp character?" Everyone posted up statlines and skill lists mostly as a joke. I decided to take the title a little more literal and produced my first self portrait in years.

    A few months ago I started using Photoshop to color my artwork. I'm dieing to get a tablet but at the moment I don't have the monetary funds to do so. So for now I'm using my mouse trying to learn as much as I can about the program. For a long time it seems I never really finished any of my art I would start a drawing but would have an idea part of the way through or get stuck on some part. Then I would move on to the next thing. So recently I have been forcing myself to go back and finish pieces, try coloring them, or reworking them to get past whatever hang ups I had. Here are some of the colors I done so far.

    Ok these are some doodles and WIPs. I going to try to keep posting something at least once a day. Its a pretty loffty goal at the moment seeing as time is at a premium for me. I get about 30-45 mins durring my lunch break each day to draw if I'm lucky. To be quite honest its driving me nuts, but anyway.

    this first pic is actually meant to be an underpainting for a group shot of characters. I was trying to make sure I got thier sizes correct as well as the lighting consitant. The plan is to blow up the figures a bit and trace over them.

    These are some head shots of the 2nd and 4th character from the left in the group shot above.

    This is a good fairy and bad fairy I'm working on for a friend who is planning on having them tattooed on her shoulders. Kind of a fairy version of the angel and devil on the shoulder conscience type thing.

    CHOW 124 update... I had the idea for her sidekick while I was at work today and I just couldn't help myself.

    Then again who really would be a better space-smuggler sidekick than a mini space-thulhu?

    Yep, the group shot is nice. You can draw nice faces with characters,
    however, the proportion in your human bodies can be off at times.
    The anatomy studies you did are really good, hope to see you post more of those in the future!

    I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!

    Ok so life has a way of getting in the way of what you really want to do, but anyway. Maybe my goal of one post a day was a bit ambitious, but then again I've always believed the best way to get to where you want was to push yourself as far as you could go. I find that I always produce my best work when I remind myself to push it further than I would normally go.
    Anyway got a new computer and finally got a tablet YAY!!!
    Anyway so for my first digital painting I decided to take part in CHOW 136 goblin gunslinger. I feel like I am trudging through waist deep snow as far as getting used to the digital painting goes. I know I'm only barely scratching the surface of the potential of the process, but for a first attempt I'm pretty happy with it.

    He doesn't quite say Boss to me though. High ranking thug sure but not Boss. Maybe a lvl boss if we were talking a video game but not the end boss.

    Anyway I am having a blast with the tablet. Learning a lot even though I've only got 2 digital paintings, with the tablet, under my belt so far. I've got to get faster, but I know speed will come with time.

    Take care,
    Adam

    Well this weeks CHOW 138: Countess Elizabeth Báthory is going really well so far. I was able to actually start on Mon. night and I had this Wed. off from work. So I've gotten to put in some real time, which has been wonderful.

    I was a little intimidated by this CHOW. I'm still learning to use my tablet and I'm learning PS CS3 also. However, worse than that I haven't painted a person in any media since Highschool, and back then I was never happy with any of the paintings I did of people. I had colored some of my line drawings with photoshop 7 but for me coloring linework is much different than painting. So I was a little worried that I would get frustrated by not being able to digitally paint with the same lvl of compentacy that I wanted. The goblins where easier. You don't have to worry about weather or not something looks realilistic when you are dealing with Fantasy creatures after all. Anyway long story short I have been pleasently surprised with what I've been able to accomplish so far. Its been a lot of fun.

    Anyway enough chit-chat here's my WIP for CHOW 138: Countess Elizabeth Báthory.
