    Off topic but just for interest sake.

    Queen was quite the concept artist, a lyrical one.

    Killer Queen: Some female character, lethal but quaint.
    Another one bites the dust: Some "shooter" character out to kill with his machene gun

    He also did themes for character concept like flash gordon and he did that awesome song for the Highlander series, Born to be kings I think.

    Really an inspirational artist. The musical avenue really has potential because the more stuff you build around your characters or concepts the better they become(en-Rich!!). and you can use them, for when you draw maybe, when you draw a shooter character that song really sets the mood. So having a goal and a music collection could be a concept artist asset.

    The babbling continues...

    Highlander was a cool theme, they got to shoot a crap load of hot babes or dudes and they flashed back into times past and got to dress them in all kinds of freaky clothings.

    zaor: Hey man thanks for the long comment, even though it sometimes felt you were talking to yourself lol .
    I'am starting to try to think 3 dimensional when I draw but not so succesfull yet.
    Yeah queen is an amazing band I've been listening to it lately, with a combination of rap and metal. You have an interesting take on music but most of the time when I do my art I dont pay attention to the music playing and it normally doesnt effect me.

    Thanks man, yeah hopefully these daily's will help us lol.

    Janos Cheers, Yeah I'm having a problem with fluidity hopefully I will overcome it, any tips?

    Fraz
    Cheers man, and yeah need to get things like the hand more accurate.

    Alright heres a master study which was harder than usual of some French artist which I grabbed from the great artist thread (Im sorry I didnt remember the name its probably sacrilage lol) I will do a couple more of these tomorrow.

    edit: Uploaded wrong picture derrrr

    Latest painting is good, but focus on colour and lighting over making the brush look like a paint brush, if the colours and lighting are good then it can be as loose as you like.

    Now don't lie, that's you in a funny hat and wearing a fake moustache.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Faster, faster...


    The hairline on the left side of the face seems to solid and sharp edged. Perhaps, looking for quick shadows or translucency?

    Damn man, now I am the only not dead one in the ssg, lol.
    I will be dead for like 2 weeks after next week as I have exams, so oh well.
    Nice job, but it would have been awesome to include some more variation in colour on her face, maybe some greens?

    I think you captured that girl quite nicely. Some dynamic in there is looking good. You kept the level of detail well balanced.

    Sweet figures man, I'd have to recommend working bigger though, I mean it's more annoying to render at first but you end up with so much more detail.

    Marth Thanks, I'm using photoshop
    Walid D Cheers buddy

    My lines are worse than yesterday........... stupid homework making me tired. Alright still getting used to mechanical pencil just hitting up some reffed nudes to practice my lines. I tried the other day public sketching, I only got 15 mins to do it but next time I will have a much longer session and actually post the result.

    Not meaning to sound harsh but I find your referenced drawings are far superior to your mind stuff. Are you taking more time on the referenced images? Or maybe you're not learning the muscles and just drawing a picture? Keep at it man, the hard work will pay off!

    SamC Not harsh man, to be honest its just I've never really did much imagination stuff I was always scared because the quality was so much worse, but if I don't do anything its going to stay worse. Thanks man

    Bridgman drawings and atrocious imagination stuff....

    Fraz,

    Put some strain on your memory.

    Draw a study picture, then right after try to recreate it from the mind. You can peek if you hit a blank, but when you finish, start over until you can draw the object without peeking and when you feel that you have memorized the components that was necessary.

    Then draw the same object two days later and see how well the stuff stuck. Soon you will have built a learning strategy and will find yourself playing with what you learn while you are doing studies. You will get a sense for the amount of proficiency you need to take it into next week.

    Might slow a study down a bit but it will make them worth while, even if you feel you need foundations, spend some time and discipline getting what you see as foundations right until you know you have it, instead of hoping they will slot themselves after months of quick sweeping. Otherwise your drawing will end up like my guitar playing. After four years now I am only starting to get the basics but that turns out to be the essentials, and because I spent such a long time doing other stuff, It's harder to unlearn my incorrect habits than to get the basics right. Style comes later, just like a guitarist's style... It's the way you drive after you have learnt to drive or the way you sing after you have learnt to sing.

    Don't let go of something untill you are happy with it. Don't tire yourself, and give yourself time, you are not a machene, It takes a few winks, breaks and revisits to make stuff permanent, so there is lots of time inbetween to do other studies or playing with other aspects, just aslong as you get a strategy for yourself that works.

    Z

    zaorr Lol fraz? wrong sketchbook or just wrong name?
    anyway, I think drawing something you just drew again from memory wouldn't to good, its only making you remember that particular pic not forcing you to think for yourself and make you own form. Yeah and I think I might take more time on study's and really think about it instead of just drawing it.

    Some scribbles

    btw I changed my name, Sketchz was so unimaginative.

    Tried some public sketching soooo hard, drawing on the bus sucked because it was vibrating like hell and in the food hall most people were like 10-20m away, oh well it was fun.

    Also some more imagination stuff, my faces are soo bad I think I'm going to hit up a mirror to get proportions and stuff at different angles.

    Hey mate! =) Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook!
    I'm spotting a whole lot of work and dedication here, which makes anything else than "keep it coming" seem redundant
    Continue to study anatomy, and remember to be observant =)
    Sometimes you'll learn only by keeping an eye open for details
