My57: A pat on the ass: Cheers
jatherip: Thanks..i think my designs are kinda weak not something I've focused on enough
jordyskateboardy: Thaaannkkss. In the bigger picture, I am still a complete noob
Chaser226: Thanks, I've been way too lazy on that
Walid D: Eeek i forgot about the edges D: Thanks
walnut: I did pick sometimes to check values, but i mainly just found the colours through trial and error on the colour i wanted on the photo until they matched. I find colour picker is usually wrong with colours anyways.
Err seriously need more crits guys. I'm thinking I should focus on colours, hands, feet, proportions, and design at the mo?
Some bridgeman, some photos, I realised I sometimes make heads way too small
Some longer posemaniacs because it's been a while
Some proportions studies, 8 heads seems way too long? or did i do it wrong. I kinda fucked up around the pelvis-leg area here D:
Quick quick colour study
The body is 2 1/3 heads wide if it's 8 heads tall.
You don't need to be so crit-hungry. If people see problems, they'll comment. Just keep on studying intelligently.
Lots of improvement here, I'm liking the figures on the previous page especially. Your work definitely seems to be paying off.
Critz critz, well since you asked for them.
Really watch out for the proportions with everything you do, do a basic invisible sketch just to get a feel for the subject and then go on to the actual drawing.
Also work on the rendering some more, some of it looks a little bit scratchy right now.
Good pose maniacs
Keep at it
Craz: M'kay. I'm crit hungry because it's probably the only reason I post here, otherwise I may as well just go about my business with no online sketchbook.
lilnebo: Invisible Sketch D: Cheers
Mind, for pattern project
some doodles, ended up making some mock-up medic class, he's meant to seem russian lol
In the last post, the ears on the fella' for your patterns project are too small. I'm sure you already know this, but the ears generally go from the brow ridge, to the bottom of the nose. And I know they're pushed back a little, 'cuz it's a front shot or w/e, but I still can't help but think they're a little too small, still.
That medic looks pretty sick. I like the bust of him, mostly. But his face seems a little short (I don't even know if that makes sense). It looks like for the full body you were just trying to throw down his costume, so I'm not going to bother critiquing that.
Nice update. C:
Meissner:Yeah very true indeed, i was trying to make the ears match by filling in more black to mould the shape so after a while they kinda shrank, a black is a bitch to rub out I also totally get what you're saying about the short face. Nice crits, lovely
Earlier I got really depressed and impatient about this painting, then annoyed. But I've cooled off a bit now. The reasons it isn't working is because the colours weren't thought through, nor the background, I didn't think about structure and went straight to value and lastly the design is way too basic (she's dressed like a prostitute.) I need to work on my studies more, especially skin tones I think, and also gathering a bit of reference now and then in these paintings would be very helpful.
Also, she's kind of got a fat ass :p You're right about the structure and reference thing btw.
Giorge: Was sortof meant to be a guy but i see how it can be seen as a chick haha, pretty unisex character
WIP, need help with the tones for the face. I want variation but I'm not sure how. This is something I'll probably come back to after study.
Still life with lines and then some colours underneath. Yellow plastic is haarrrdddd
Bounce light from the head scarf and vary the redness of the skin, particularly the lips.
Craz: I hear you about the red, that's what sucks about overlays. Not so sure about bounce light on the head scarf, it's a fairly flat object so it probably wouldn't occur. Unless you can prove me wrong?
Going to try and do a skin tone study everyday. Whether it's a straight to colour SP or a nude photo study I don't care, but this scares the shit out of me and I need to get over it.
This took me like 5 hours to paint. It didn't really help that I tried having two light sources either side. The colours suck and the face came out kinda weird. But hey, what did I expect on my first go. Give it two months and we'll compare...and hopefully I'll speed up as well, 5 hours is a long time. I actually filmed this but the file was too big to speed up
Some nude study of a hot chick
Loving the sketchbook! Lot's of great stuff you've got going on here.
Im really impressed that you're doing a little something every day .. it definitely does help with improving upon various techniques and skills!
I can't really think of any crits to give, other than what's been mentioned.
Im just really loving the rate of improvement that you're at
Keep it going!
You're probably right; I just looked at the head-scarf and quickly assumed it had a certain thickness to it or was off the forehead at the bottom, in which case I think there would be some bounced light right beneath it. Or maybe not.
Could you break the file into smaller files and speed them up?
Is the bottom-right chick Heather Graham?
Craz: Nah it was all meant to be the same chick, some model called Karlie Montana. I googled Heather Graham, scary resemblance to that face haha.
Imagination stuff, although all the armours are referenced
SP..the bright values need to be brighter and more yellowy biege, this took me like 2 hours probably. I look really angry in this lol
hey 'sup Sam nice SP and I'm diggin the expression of mr armour dude - great to see you getting 'life' into your pics and the confidence of your work is good!
Respect for progress and skills - rock on my friend

Possible super-articulated pose ref manikin!
Looks to me like there's a light that's coming from the bottom left, so the jaw isn't turning away from the light scource. Whether or not he handled it correctly is another matter, of course.
sam, nice quantity of work coming out of here.
remember you studies because you want to learn.
the more you want to learn the more you will do
so take your time and really ask yourself what you could de better, stand back from your work often and compare it to the subject, see something fix it.
keep going dude
Jens: Thanks, I think I pointed the values out. And I know, but I don't have 5 hours to spare every night.
Craz: Was meant to be bounced, but too bright
Walid D: Need to work the edges more D: Thanks
The7Artist7: Cheers buddy
Some photo studies
Imagination, proportion mistakes i know
Speed enviro study
SP, tried playing with edges more. Still need more work on these D:
The self portrait is much better than the last one.
hey man those SPs are looking really good on this last one the only thing that grabs me is what ever
way you are using the brush there it makes the skin look a little glassy , maybe its just that hard reflection on the nose though
i would do some more still life too it never hurts ^ ^
thanks for dropin by my SB again ...the Demo for the game is being released soon
so i can just post the link there when its done = )
keep up the fight
"Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master
Craz: Eh thanks, Mr I'm-really-blunt.
jordyskateboardy: Dude what are you talking about lol Cheers
Zorcron: Not sure what that is but I'll look into it for sure. Thanks.
Forgive me for not doing the SP for today Was my dad's birthday so there wasn't much time for art.
From imagination. Straight to colour. The skin tones suck, need lighter values, and rubbish colour choices. I'm enjoying using edges more now, where have they been all my life
Nice traditional linework, but keep working with the digital stuff!
I'm digging the posemaniac studies.
PieMonster: Thanks man, you definitely should!
BubbaGump: Yarr digis are still shit thanks
SP about 3-4 hours. Edges are really interesting things to play with, too bad I can't use them for shit. Colour choices are still pretty poor. Just needs time I guess Also, excuse me looking like a fat maniac in this. And I forgot ears, ran out of time
EDIT: Ohh yeah. Got an Intuos 4. Pretty smexy. Speeds things up and it has like 4 times the amount of pressure level than my old shitty tablet.
