    Oxide-0's sketchy pad for others to view and what not?

    About me:
    I am a youngish artist from Canada looking to push my skills to new levels. Iíve very recently graduated from University however I am coming out with a BED not a BFA. Since graduating I have decided I would much prefer to devote my life to art than the education system. To that end I have been taking as much free time as possible to push my art forward to a professional level. So far I am a mostly self made man having taught myself most of my art skills. Im a decent sketcher and I would consider myself accomplished in acrylics but I am always open to new mediums. Most of my works have been more academic studies and works but I've always been a huge fantasy fan and i really want to move away from references and get more creative but for the moment ill be doing more studies. I am always open to crits they are really the only way to improve so send em my way ^_^.

    Current goals:
    -1 Hour a day or a total of at least 7 Hours a week spent on artwork of any kind
    I never leave home with out my sketch book!

    - Develop an understanding of digital art
    Currently working on Painter X

    -Polish up anatomy
    Making my way through Loomis and Hogarth atm

    -Get more creative and loose

    working on my painter skillz

    I’ve been trying to get a grip on painter x I've done very little digital stuff but I must say the program handles well in comparison to real world mediums I enjoy it greatly. So far my biggest issues are getting used to layers(I keep drawing on the wrong layer!) and finding brushes that aren’t to lagy on larger sizes and handle well, I can’t say I much like the oils section yet but I’ll keep trying it, the lack of color mixing sure is a nice change saves sooo much time!


    Here’s a WIP the original image is quite famous by Phaidon a photographer been on national geographic mag I do believe I love it myself, the main idea here is to get used to the brushes and rendering of color.
    I also admit I don't like the way the pencil brushes handle thus far you can build up the darkness but it really does not feel much like the real deal ill have to mess around i guess.( maybe im just missing being good with them lol)

    oh here’s an update on Phaidon's Afghanistan girl, so far I’ve mostly used the air brush tool, I enjoy it greatly, perhaps because I’ve got the real deal at home. The blender tools are interesting but I found lowering the opacity faster and more natural, I may mess with blending later. Does anyone recommend any brushes for this kind of work in particular? Im really not familiar with the tools Painter X offers yet.

    poor neglected sketch book i promise to give you attention more often

    Ahem yes not crazy(don't let them know!).. anyways heres my latest wip. Its getting nearish done as well, phew (yah this one was alot of work no references and lots of sketches to get the right idea down. Then there was the whole "im clueless in painter" deal lol). Well it turned out well so far but its still progressing so any tips or comments would be awesome!

    The idea is that the star in the background has gone supernova. I wanted to capture the last second of the human race. Hopefully when its done i can show a sense of indifference and detachment in the womans face, as if shes so plugged into technology she isen't even aware of the physical world any more.

    You have very nice drawing skills, but your digital art skills could use some work. Your work seems a little blurry to me (probably from using the aribrush tool ). I'm not familar with Painter (I use Photoshop) but it might help you to check out the Painter forum here on cA. Also, on the last one, her head is a little too big (or shoulders too small whichever) for realistic, but I think you're going for that cartoon look? It leaves me a little confused so try and make that a little more clear.

    On your current work, once again the problem of blurryness and a little bit of sloppyness too, I think. Try paying a lot of attention to details and zooming in reallyyyyy far, it'll help you get the look you desire .

    Also, I would really like to see some of your acrylics . Maybe show us some?

    At Niishoku's request

    Here you go Niishoku its a bit older ill get some more photos once i dig em up, there on this computer somewhere!

    Oh and i was not going for cartoonish with the Queen pic but i only used reference for the eyes(it was a bit of a challenge to see how far my imagination has come) it turned out ok, i made a few adjustments and put final images in that old post. The shoulders are larger now, good call on that, i increased the size before but a few people agreeded it was still wonky
