just wanted to come by and say that i like where you're going with your stuff! the newer studies are a great step(or leap) in the right direction! Keep it up.. also! I learnt a few, new, good things when listening to your stream the other day haha.. I dig the "just do it" attitude that you had going towards miles_ haha.. so keep that up aswell! =D

    MAn! that's a lot of pages. Sorry couldn't go through this all in one night.

    What I really like though is the suggestion you were doing at the beginning where you placed rendered spheres in photographs, and tried to get the accurate light sources. As a matter of fact, I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting art exercises that I could put my mind to, and add to my exercise schedule. I do see a lot of people studying, but there's an important aspect of "how to study" that I think most people forget. Your doing a good job. Make a plan and go for it man!

    peace! keep pressing forward!

    oh yeah, that last still life looks great.

    OMG, I just love this sketchbook! What software are you using? And what would you recommend for beginners like me, I've been using GIMP the whole time.

    Dile_: Haha really? Not sure we really cover all that much helpful stuff but I'm glad you liked it! Thanks

    poetry man: Yeah they weren't all that helpful man, the best way to get better is just to do the studies, not look for new ones. Theres enough variations and references/lighting situations in life, photos and others work that I really don't see how you'd need anything more D: Cheers!


    Just Call Me Bruce!: aha! That apple got cut to shreds moment after the still life...everything it deserved.

    strangedawn: Thankyou!

    Ven S: I'm using Photoshop, but its not all that important what tools you use, its how you use them Cheers

    SamC, you need to explore more, your still young and have time to explore
    every painting you do is a strong warrior guy or a warrior girl with a fringe, i mean it's cool that your doing what you want to do and like to do, but i think you should explore more style. also the colours and light in all your pieces are very much the same in everything you do, either harsh red light with cool rim light or cool light with harsh orange rim light or something, i'm sure you see it
    you can get reaaaal nice colours in studies, now try and apply that to something from your head
    the clint eastwood study rocks and so do your hands
    keep it up man

    as always you're rendering is really good and i like the last one, but without sounding like a patronising prick i think you should look at comic character poses; i think the would really help make some of your're characters look a bit more fluid and dynamic if that makes sense.

    Haha yeah man, after your talk on "working the entire image" etc etc, the first thing i did was un-hotkeying all my zoom abilities. Which is so far one of the best things i've done digitally.. because I can pay more attention to the overall image, and also pay attention to the fundamentals better so thanks again

    also really really good studies and paintings lately man! Keep mixing it up!

    Ok it actually took me some time to think of that but here it goes:

    In the "3 warriors" pictures the light and the composition are very solid at least as far as i can tell.
    But look a bit more at the details,
    Hands and arms: The guy's hands and arms look way too small even considering the down side view, and his left arm looks really unnatural due to it's position- it's not comfortable to keep your arm like that (unless it's broken),
    his and the girls left hands look again really unnatural cause of the way their fingers look - way too straight and wooden like.
    Proportions: Again with the "warrior guy" his legs seem a bit too long and stretched (again even considering the down side view).
    Belt: the "warrior's" belt turned to us way too much, so it looks like he's wearing his belt on the side and the belt looks 2D.

    Hope i helped a lil, don't stop making those great studies and sketches!

    Cheers,

    Alex.

    Loving the hands, and the Clint Eastwood study is good too, but could benefit from some better edge control to emphasise the foreshortening and angle
