    You have a beautiful son, and it must be a total joy to paint
    or draw him. Values. I think that you should focus on that more at
    this stage. It's nice to have goals like the EOW, POW and the others,
    but I really think that you should implement some basic value training
    inbetween. A simple ball shape material, try to render it under one or
    two light source. Try to render it only greyscale. You did a good job on
    this submarine creature, I like how you did the transparency effect on him,
    the visible intestines, and the whole color choice is very nice. However, the
    down side is his body structure, and the real 3D feeling, it is not really
    convincing. That's why you should do small thumbnailing and pose sketches
    before going into the final big render. Again, a good practice would be
    to take the body of this creature and try to render out black and whie,
    with one light source. At the current moment we have a feeling that the
    creature is glowing from inside, but still we are not sure, there is no definite
    light source. Think in greyscale for now, think in values and think in contrasts.
    You have nice ideas, but you will have to realize them in an even more purer
    and nicer fashion.
    The comic book is nice, you should do more of those, with more details,
    and with more carefully designed planned lines.
    Overall I am very satisfied when I come here, cause I see that you
    are a relatively hard worker, and improvements are always visible.
    Thank you for visiting my sketchbook on a regular basis, you are
    a kind person. Best regards to you and your family.

    @Kapri- I figured the last part of the belly shoudnt have ribs. like humans have a bit of a hole in the tummy erea too; maybe it's too big. started on the book; liking it so far. is there a date for the sketchmeet yet?

    @Plissken- indeed. values. gotto work on those. and colors; I had a hard time on them, though they turned out ok in the end I think.


    oh man, I should make a list.
    COW250:
    what I did right-
    -started on a thumb early in the game; stuck with it, though I made quite a bit of changes to the creature it stayed good.
    -made some loose sketches on the side to get the creature right in my mind.
    - worked on getting the transparency right, which was the main focus for this.

    what I did wrong-
    -added a lot of highlights near the end. they're not really working an break the silouette
    -didnt look at values or anything and just plunged in.
    -didnt think much on lightsources. should have been more consistent.

    Oho, suddenly a huge burst of update, I told ya
    that you are a hard worker. I like that so much.
    And I can see that the Landlord, butler and the maid,
    went through some nasty nasty sh*t. I can imagine
    how they molested the body of the landlord, and then
    the butler. But the pitch point was the maid. She finished
    up the most brutal way. I can see, I can feel what they
    did to her. Bridgman and Loomis would be shocked, a faint
    hearted person would surely shiver. The ball drawing scene
    is fantastic, and I am more than proud of you now. Small
    speed paints are great, you just try to go into more details
    with them. The experimental shapes and studies are ok,
    and I think that they surely server to improve your skills
    even more. An unstoppable force is what you are.

    aw, hell. did a warm-up 1 hour class from pixelovely yesterday. spent all the 30 sec's trying to get a good interface setup (where I could see the photo and draw at the same time); when I finally got it it turned out pretty sweet though!

    Sweet treasure chest!
    I like where you went with this comic.
    And the highlights are definitely the perspective shots.
    Your are very awesome my dear.
    The above life drawing; I think that very few
    of them can do a correct free handed circle,
    so you should better use some digital tool,
    to make the outlines for that wooden ball.
    See ya later, take care till then.

    Hey. I like the POW. The story reads pretty well. While looking at your sketches however, I see that you don't construct your figures very carefully. I'd suggest building them up with simple geometric shapes to begin with, and then add the details later. They'll have a lot more substance this way and seem more believable.

    I'm loving your comics, it's always really refreshing to me to see comics or storylines on here

    Keep up those studies! I know sometimes it feels like you are struggling through it and not getting what you want but just really try to put yourself into it. Sometimes I'm surprised when I keep pushing and pushing and suddenly I realize something that helps me turn it into a better study.

    I know there's a lot of emphasis goin around about doing speed studies and stuff but I think it's really valuable to really commit to one too.

    `@ kuquorblue -hey, thanks! there's a lot to study isnt there.. I should make a list.
    one good thing about the challenge thing is, I run into all sorts of stuff I dont usually do that gives me a lot of trouble.
    I should do studies into those areas I think.
    and heh, ye I seem to have a bit of a commitment problem. that's why I decided to do some challenges really. to force myself to finish something.

    @tobbA- hey! long time no see! ye I think I see what you mean. I do some geomitry in the shots I have trouble with.. but the others could use some too.

    @plissken - heh im pretty happy with some of those shots ye; thanks your sweet your totally right about the ball..it's hardly part of the exercise to draw circles.. I hope!

    ooh, tired so have to stop here. the last page is no good though. think it'll have to be 2.

    june will be 5 years of sb...

    so june I have an actual aniversery comming up; it'll have been 5 years since I started a sketchbook. (now I know im getting old :p) first, this one: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=100336

    that didn last! tried again:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=112390

    then, for a little while, a mentored thread:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=116464
    happy times.

    anyway, I thought this might be a good time for some of that in-tro-spec-tion thing and see what I've learned.
    firstly, gonna look at no-ref digital art (concept):

    well, my main problem seems to be light and values, indeed. I've gotten quite a bit better at showing light, but I really should put some study into that. the hope-giving thing is that the progress I've made is over a relative short amount of time- and then I 'quit' for a while, not doing any concept stuff digitally.
    my biggest hiatus seems to be cause by study. I'm going to start up in may again. maybe this time around a can find a better balance.

    some serious critz for me to reread:
