    kikindaface is learning to draw !

    NEW STUFF ON THE LAST PAGE !!!

    Hi. Its been a while that I'm on conceptart.org, and I think it's time for me to start a Sketchbook. So a short introduction :
    My name is Walid, i'm 19 years old, and I live in Strasbourg, France. I wanna be a concept artist

    New presentation ^^ : I'm Walid Dala, aka Kikindaface. I'm 21, coming from Strasbourg, Northern France, but currently living at Lyon, in order to study at Emile cohl art school ! My goal is to become a character/ industrial designer, as well as illustrator , more into science fiction than fantasy ( but i like both of them ^^ )


    So I start with posemaniacs 60 seconds


    And my first selfportrait I made a few days ago

    And sorry for my scanner and my English, which are both sucking
    And of course, Critics and Comments are Welcome !!!t

    Great digital paintings and you're on the right path copying Bridgman. Only thing I can give critique about is your lines (especially on the posemaniac poses) - you seem to construct them of many short strokes when a single sweep would do. Try some blind contours or whatever sketching without lifting the tip from paper. Very life-like SP and spoon painting, keep 'em all coming!

    Thanks for dropping by my SB, listen to this guy, it's exactly what you need!

    Put your pencil down, and draw the whole image without lifting it up. It doesn't make pretty drawings, but it trains you not to make everything you draw look like a fuzzy bear!

    The sunglasses are great, Keep practicing!

    RandAlThor : Yeah, really busy year, hope that I could do all I've planned

    smuli : Thanks for your advice, but yeah, for 2 weeks, I haven't improved on posemaniacs, because I think more in muscle and in part of the body that on masses, on lines, and today, the fact to make just one stroke help me to be more concentrated on line, so I think I will improve with practice

    K-bot : Thanks man !

    Shalite : Thanks ! yeah, the eye is what I what I draw the best, but nozes i make are sucking, need to do more faces studies !!!

    So ther is what I've made today

    1 hour daily posemaniac ( with the less strock a can do)

    Hey Walid!

    The Bridgman and digital studies are coming along nicely. Keep it up man

    Doing short studies from Posemaniacs does seem like a sound idea. I think that it might be better to focus on proportions with 60 second drawings than the entire contour. Simplify the limbs and spine if need be. Try to establish a sense of rhythm to the poses as well.

    Have you been to any life drawing classes yet?

    Havoc-DM : thanks man ! yeah, for posemaniacs, i've allready seen it into others sketchbooks, and I'll try it, maybe I'l make the half of poses focus on proportions and the other half on lines, will try it, thanks

    Radon_ : thanks, sometimes it happens to me too but the most important is to understand anatomy and to know how to apply it

    So today, I've been too busy, I've just made 2 rough digital paintings, which are sucking, My goal here was just to train my mental color picking. I've some trouble with highlights, when I paint this , it's like I've just made a color dot on my painting, it doesn't looks like highlight , and I think that I pick the correct color .... Need to make more of them

    Salut Walid! Bienvenue dans le monde merveilleux des sketchbooks!

    Tes études sont pas mal! C'est très bien de commencer par le commencement! J'aime beaucoup la petite cuillère! comme critique je dirais qu'il faut que tu fasses attention à tes ellipses, sur le pot d'encre par exemple, elles sont fausses (n'ont pas toutes le même axe ni la même pers) et que dans tes peintures (digitales on est d'accord) tu perds beaucoup de tes edges (les arêtes quoi). Par exemple sur la souris ou le petit pot, le contour parait mou, car tu n'as pas gardé un volume qui tranche d'un coup sec. Par endroits ça convient mais à d'autres non. Je trouve que ça fonctionne assez bien sur la cuillère par contre. N'aies pas peur tu peux toujours "retendre" tes volumes. Assure toi que la structure est juste avant de te soucier du rendu. C'est mon avis!
    Mais tu as l'air motivé et bosseur, donc ya pas de raisons que ça ne marche pas pour toi!

    Clochette : Merci, tes conseils m'ont aidé

    So here is what I've done yesterday, I've learned a lot about color/light when I read the PSG 7 tutorial, so thanks Prometheus|ANJ
    I've made posemaniacs at 30 seconds, some studies in front of the mirror , arms from mind, to apply what I've learned ( but it sucks), Bridgman studies, and a digit painting. And C&C are more than Welcome !!

    That, my friend is a beatiful apple
    Also nice posemaniac studies.

    I cant think of any good advice but know that you thread the right path: the path of diligent study!


    Cheers

    He holds us all within his mind.
