    Dryad WIP

    Mitchell's Sketchbook

    Didn't have time to finish, but it's the furthest I've gotten with a CHOW in a long time.



    rastaray Thank you! I will!
    Fallenangel Thanks man, yeah I finally decided to do some anatomy studies, I'll have to continue this week!
    cloudcan wow..I don't think it get's better than a literal jawdrop, thank you very much! I've been keeping edges in mind recently, because I've noticed my stuff was more airbrushy than I thought, I'm glad it shows.

    hey Rustveld lots of solid study's on here. Might want to do a few more males though it looks like you have started that already.

    Your Dryad WIP looked really promising, how come you didn't finish it? would have got my vote for sure. I think your design is a lot more compelling than what I came up with.

    Keep it up!

    Peace,
    Sean

    Pencil Portraits

    I haven't been drawing a whole lot these past few weeks, been busy obsessively watching Batman.
    I started to post more frequently and I want to continue doing so.

    I bought a new woodless pencil set a few weeks ago, they have a nice weight to them. It came with a fancy pencil holder for when the pencil becomes too short, I had a hard time figuring out what it was for at first, but very useful though! I want to spend more time on my pencils, I noticed I'm not too confident with it anymore, need to practice more!


    Trying different techniques with these.
    Also tried (not too successfully) to make them look different from the usual.

    Sean McMurchy- Thank you. Since I've started studying anatomy I've been drawing more males than usual, I'll try to keep it somewhat balanced.

    It was really rushed, and after 2 hours of painting I got frustrated and really started to dislike the piece. I wouldn't have been able to finish in time and be happy with the final product. I'm glad you liked it, but yours is way better!

    Hey Mitchell

    Your sketchbook is absolutely epic! I think it's really cool that your own style has always been evident, even when you do studies of the human figure you can see your style shine through. I think this is why you've progressed so quickly in a short space of time, because you're not simply copying photos or studies, you're understanding them in your own way.

    It's also showing that you're becoming more confident with your sketches from imagination, although you were always very good at painting from photos on the 1st page of your sketchbook, what you've learned is translating into your own work which is awesome haha!

    I hope you continue to do more finished pieces from imagination! you're a big inspiration to me, can't wait for you to post more stuff.

    Enough of the rambling, and I apologise for not having any criticism! I'd feel silly pointing out stuff you need to improve on because I'm not an expert, but I can encourage you to keep doing what you're doing take care.

    Portrait WIP's

    It's been a while. I haven't been happy with my stuff lately and instead of working harder I took a little break. I know a lot of artists have a love/hate relationship with their work, but for a while I just couldn't stand the sight of mine. Fortunately I got my motivation back. Today started off well, I've been drawing/painting all day. Hopefully I'll keep at it.

    Went back to my comfort zone..I want to improve and actually finish some of these portraits.

    Doing some different approaches with these. Still need to work on my values, but I gave colors a go as well.

    bogan -Thank you! The water is a pain to do, but somehow I keep going back to it.
    mEgA fLeeCe RaIn -Thank you very much.
    TomDeVis -Thank you, glad you like them!

    bbbbethhhh - Thank you very much for your words of encouragement, I wish I had read it earlier! It was a nice surprise.

    I'm glad to hear that you can see a style in my work, because I can't really see it myself. I still feel that I don't yet have the confidence I had back in 2008/2009, even though I can see the improvement.

    I will, I love doing work from imagination the most, I just need to finish them! Thanks again for the comment.

    Great improvements! It's really interesting to look through your whole sketchbook and see how your drawing informed how you painted, then how you improved the drawings while still working in that style, all the while becoming more naturalistic. Just my opinion anyways. Cool stuff! Keep it up!

    I have to say that the eyes you draw and paint are wonderful! I like the pencil portraits, again, especially the eyes are outstanding!

    Sketches

    Zesiul - Thanks for the big compliment!
    PieMonster - Thank you, I'm working on it.
    Alrap - Thanks, glad you like them
    lemming-clone- - Many thanks! Interesting observation, I didn't really notice myself. Drawing and painting has been two separate things for me, it has been rather difficult to combine the two. But I'm working on it.



    Since this is a sketchbook, here are some sketches.

    Octic - Thank you. What can I say, I love drawing eyes. Cheers
    wunts - First time hearing that, thank you.
    in2eternity - Thank you! The love comes and goes, but it makes sense being bipolar and all.
    LastGen Thank you! Glad you like them. It's like they say, eyes are the mirror of the soul. With them I can make my character feel "real".
    Overtoom - Thanks! With all the time I spend on portraits I would hope so.

    I like the tone of the paper, too bad it damages easily.
    Next are the limbs.

    I am obsessed with drawing faces myself and the ones you do are really remarkable! I especially love your rendering of that lizard though. Love the way you did the scales =D Thanks for stopping by at my sketchbook ^^

    First Sketch of 2012

    Some faces from imagination

    I've done some arm studies after Loomis as well, but it's taking more time to finish than the others.

    currychakra - Thank you! I did that study especially for the scales. I want to paint some dragons later on,
    so I'll probably be doing more of those soon. You're welcome


    Here's to a productive 2012!

    Happy new year, awesome SB! Your paintings are fantastic! I think it's great how you balance observational and imaginative stuff, I know I tend to do too much of the former.
    Maybe if you want to do something different you could try some more extreme expressions or some profile views. Looking forward to the dragons!
