Just Call Me Bruce!: Haha! That's brilliant! Made my day Thanks
Fallenangel: Some casual Bossa Nova haha thanks man, glad you like it!
dblock: Get to it! Thanks
Made a post on my blog www.samcarr.net about places to find good stuff on colour theory if anyones interested, been asked about it a few times and its all well worth reading!
Yesterdays stuff, did some pencil characters too that I'll post when finished. Also the still life on the stream failed so hard, didn't really go anywhere :'(
And a still life from this morning as revenge to still life's everywhere >

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.

OLD SKETCHBOOK: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...25#post2543225
your color and rendering is superb nothing to say you are really good!^_^
Awesome artist and friends
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.
Ven S: I'm using Photoshop, but its not all that important what tools you use, its how you use them Cheers
Hands from Loomis and life
Man dressed like an owl?
Some sketching around, need to get better at pencils
And a speedpaint from tonight, trying to get better at illustrating
Nice sketches, love the dark lines you get man. Lovely illustration aswell, i can see the story straight away. Moarrr.
DTP: Moarr will always be on its way, so much to do Thanks!
skMOP: Yeah I recognise you Thanks, glad you enjoy listening
SnobbyOo: Ooo I didn't know you were on! Give me a holla next time Thanks man
Quick, faily study
And a longer one
I kind of want to take hand #30 and put it on my wall as a good ass kicker to get to work. Great work man, your studies are really inspiring and motivating. Moarrrr! : D
hala: Haha I was having a tough time knuckling down D: Thanks!
witek: Thanks man, keep pushinnnn
Made a page on my blog about places to find good books/articles on art stuff, flick through and make sure you have them all haha
I'm also on Twitter now, if anyone wants to follow me on there, do so here.
I'm basically finally free from college and have a year to get good or get a shitty job and never leave this town, so trying to practice a bit more. Here's todays stufffff. Woahh its starting to get light outside. Gotta go sleeeppp
Loomis faces, more tommorow
Clint Eastwood study
And FINALLY finished this piece, hope people like it D:
Wow you have improved a great amount in the past 3 years! Like tremendously! Your a great source of motivation! Now i know that I am going along the right paths. Do u go to school for art? And also would you recommended any books on painting?
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.
also really really good studies and paintings lately man! Keep mixing it up!
Thats some crazy good lighting in the last piece. Awesome stuff!
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!
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
