    EDIT: WOAAHH HEY, this is future Sam, circa 2011, letting you know that from here up through to page 50, theres no images D: This is because I was outsourcing from CGHUB, and I think they're no longer friends or balalabalabaaba If you wanna check the work that fills the gaps, hop over here! http://tinyurl.com/5tbsj5e

    So this is all from the last 3 days, I'm tired of wasting my time so I'm just sort of drawing all day now

    Some pretty bleh pencils from mind

    MMA studies

    Life studies

    Bridgman studies

    Photo studies

    Photo and brigdman studies

    Hands from life, gonna do 100 and see if I suck a little less at them

    Photo study- 1 hour

    And a really speed digi I did from mind, trying to see if I can speed my process up

    Hey Sam. Just checked your sketchbook. You've made quite improvement in those years. And i respect it. You're studying anatomy well, and digital rendering getting better and better. Love the pokemon trainer piece (probably an add up of highlights wounds hurt) and piece with a warrior and a giant (the sb avatar). Wish you all the best - keep going mate!

    Jeez, you are starting to make me feel lazy--you better keep it up to get my ass in gear.

    Those hand studies are beautiful. I find it funny that on the last painting the hands are the worst part though. Maybe try painting some hands in addition to drawing them.

    On a side note, it looks as though you are using both soft edged and hard edged brushes together. At the moment I only really use basic hard round, but am thinking of trying out a softer one with it. You still keep all the hard edges to the figures I see. So how do you go about using the two?

    you should start with negtive shapes with figures, start with the overal silhoutte and break done from that, that way you get sharper edges and overall cleaness to it.
    hands are looking so fuckin beautiful O_O

    and @ andrew, just experiment and try it out maybe? you learn the most of trying it out

    Seraph Fawkes: Thanks for the kind comment man, means a lot
    Andrew Sonea: Haha thanks, yeah I've done some hand paintings...just for you The hotkeys for increasing and decreasing the softness of your brush is shft+[ or ] I generally use that and just switch up. Try different edges on each other and see what effects you like. I also use the lasso tool and soft brush inside, which gives you soft on hard, but it usually cuts the edge is too sharp. Hope this helps, I'd do like a picture to demonstrate but I currently have no time :'(
    ryanoir: I do with most of my digital studies I lasso the outline and soft brush in before going and defining edges and colours. cheers, but the hands suck D:

    So I was on a trip in London yesterday and got some awesome pictures tomorrow, and then came home for like half an hour, before going back out to see Godspeed you! Black Emperor in London again D: Got home at like 1 in the morning. Needless to say, no time for art

    Hands

    Skull studies for college from photos I took at the museum





    This is from Sunday, forgot to scan it. Quick acrylic

    Photo studies


    And a song I'm loving at the moment Hopefully I'll have more time tomorrow

    ryanoir: Don't say that it really doesn't do anything for me when someone says my work looks like Miles'

    Miles: Got that finished acrylic piece coming up, will sink lots of time into that

    Feel really exhausted today, not been getting much sleep and I'm probably catching a cold

    More hands

    Some quick MMA figures

    A warmup thingy from mind to wake up a little once I got home from college..mainly playing with value range

    EDIT: Moved the piece to the next post for convenience

    Man your stuff is so good lately. And I don't see why you are down about comparisons to Miles_. He is simply another really good, young artist, and your styles do have a lot of similarities. I don't know if you are worrying about maybe being too much like him, but I wouldn't worry. As I said, both of you are really young, so your styles have plenty of room to develop in their own unique directions. I know I wish I was good enough to be compared to him haha, and I am a year older than you.

    The trainer is looking better now, but still doesn't seem finished to me. There are parts of it that look finished, but other parts not so much. For example, the trainer himself is pretty much done, but another half hour or hour spent cleaning up some things would really help (for instance the brim of his hat and the shoulder strap both are still sketchy and can use a cleaner edge). The biggest thing though is that to me the background looks very rushed and at a lower level than the trainer. It looks just like some textured brushes slapped down and blurred so they recede a bit. Maybe some landscapes would help if you are not comfortable working on the background.

    Pencils are looking good.

    Wolverine is nice in terms of values, but it looks to me like his head might be a bit misplaced. I'm just imagining it without the arm in front, and it looks a bit unnatural or at least uncomfortable pose.

    Anyways, you are doing good and working really hard. It's pretty inspiring actually (so you better keep up these regular big updates!).

    YOURE ON FIRE!
    I love all the work, the pokemon trainer looks awesome! One thing that keeps bugging my, though. Is that the hand wich holds the pokeball, seems to flip to the other side while looking at it. I think the thumb should be more behind the pokeball. And with some lines in the palm, I suppose that should stop happening. But right now It's hard to see it in the right way (I hope you know what I mean)
    I also love the skull sketches in the previous post. Is that pencil, or carchoal?

    Stay on fire, please!

    Metal Fingers: Thanks man
    lolbbq: Cheers
    Andrew Sonea: Ah you got me Fixed a few things but I think overhauling the background would be a little pointless at this stage, I'll bare it in mind next time and do some enviro studies. Thanks
    ryanoir: Cheers
    Luckers: Changed it The skull sketches are in pencil apart from the horse skull which is charcoal pencils with white chalk, thanks for the encouragement!
    Alucar: He's the MAN
    SnobbyOo: Hahaha thanks bro

    Moar hands

    Started as studying Asaro head and ended up just doodlin'

    Failed enviro, just gonna have to do some more! Details overwhelmed by brushwork

    Another quick warm up thing before i started painting properly, to loosen up and try some things out without giving a shit

    ried to finish this piece a little more, got rid of a little of little nicks that bugged me. Done now, getting sick of it

    I really like your use of colour, and your brushstrokes have something pretty recognizable already, I think. The rendering of the Pokemon trainter's face looks great. I'd would have been great, if the the emotion his pose already suggests was visible on his face as well. Right now he looks rather bored. Maybe something to keep in mind in the next piece (Happens to me all the time, I start with a readable emotion on a face and end up with the same face I always paint while rendering :/ )
