Je werkt hard zeg, je kunt zien dat je vooruit bent gegaan!
Blijf vooral veel oefenen, het is goed dat je al veel aan vorm doet, maar misschien kan schaduw nog wat werk gebruiken .
In je schetsen zijn de schaduwen maar een kleur, maar ik denk dat het misschien wel goed is als je eens een foto probeert na te tekenen (zo realistisch mogelijk) met meer soorten schaduw (dus niet maar een toon grijs). Volgens mij kan je dat wel goed helpen in je digital work .
De schetsen zien er erg goed uit, misschien moet je eens een lichaam proberen op wacom? Zo te zien doe je eigenlijk alleen maar gezichten
Hey, thanks for your reply in my sketchbook. You mentioned that I should do some more studies, misschien is het voor mij wat duidelijker als je ook verteld waarom en van wat? Then it would be more constructive.
Are you in art school somewhere in Holland? I'm studying in Groningen. Just curious
Your bodies and other pencil work look really constructed. The digitals look like you were in a hurry to get to the rendering! Maybe take some of those pencils to the next step. The skin of the portraits looks nice, but the features are lined with black and floating on the faces.
The hands look very good though, so you need tot take a bit more time for construction in a portrait. Or do a quick thumbnail, were you focus more on color and 'de grote lijnen'.
Hey good stuff I can see improvements from original post ^^.
If you want my tip I would say do lots of value studies. Draw a row of boxes and shade a gradient. It really helps a lot as does all foundational practices.
As for the figure look at the great artists like Vilpuu, Bridgemen, and see how they break down the figure. The break down of the figure is not how you should draw though but merely an idea of how to place pieces together. But drawing those breakdowns helps you remember how those pieces fit into place when you are doing a real drawing. Always be aware of form, sides, etc. Good luck! ^^
@ marlisa: Dankjewel Ik doe me best, ik teken door de weeks zo gemiddeld 4/5 uur per dag denk ik. Dus hard werken doe ik wel ^^
Ik heb nu in deze update 2 tekeningen waar wat meer werk in zit
In iedergeval bedankt voor de crits, ik zal er wat mee doen!
@artificial green: Hey first of thnx for the comment!
And thanks for the crits ill try to put the advice into the works
I never really have the time to do digitals so when i do, i have a short time window.
But you are right i should try not to finish it so fast..
@tandy1000: Thanks! Ill try doing some value studies It might help!
Thanks for the tip about bridgemen and vilpuu.. ive done tons of simplefied figures
they just aint online, but i guess i should try them some more.. thnx!
Beautiful pencil drawings. I'm studying Bridgman as well, love the way he draws. I see definite improvement. Keep chugging along.
The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.
Some inspired pencil strokes there, in the hatching of the last faces you posted!
I think that some work on simplified underlying structures(Loomis: "Figure Drawing for all it´s Worth") might improve the overall shapes of your figures. With those you´ll benefit not only the bulks, but also the proportions. This, for instance, might help you to get rid of shortened limbs like lower legs (some pretty common issue among us, begginers). I saw a couple of cases like that in your figures from head, but seems like you already work on it.
Also, as Tandy1000 recommended, I would go for Vilppu. I´m a big fan of him, since he goes from gesture to everything else in a very structured way. So, the less you´ll get from him is how to make your figures dynamic, and to lose any possible stiffness. The book is great and necessary, but I´ll definitely go for the DVD´s.
Other than that, the improvement is evident on each new post.
No pdf´s, man, sorry
You can buy it from here http://www.vilppustore.com/
I would start with the book and for sure I would go for the first DVD/download(the gesture one). I know it might seem a lot of money, but you´ll be doing a great investment.
@jpdelteso: i had no luck with finding a pdf either.. I guess i have tobuy then Maybe ill look in the library first but for the site itself it looks kinda cool!
.. and ps.. what the hell that sounds awsome? isnt that extremely expensive?!
@rambolin: thnx? !!
Here is 2 digis i made.. the portrait sucks balls but i think i found what i do wrong.. and correct me if im wrong but i think i dont leave enough space between the nose and mouth in digital work.. why i dont know but ill pay some extra attention to it next time.
The apple turned out okay i guess
I love the studies mate.
Remember to flip your images horizontally (digital) or use a mirror for proportions.
I'm with you about colouring, but I've been experimenting with colour
on the side, and as long as the values are right in Photoshop, just slap on a new layer on top and set the blend mode to 'color'. Real paints though. Forget about it. I'll probably be the first to go traditional from a digital background.
