Mishiev: Thanks and yeah,, i can work on alot of stuff this summer and ill try!
Brewin: thnx m8! I found out about the skulls and when i looked at them i kinda
punched myself in the face... how can i be so stupid to not see that teeth are coming forward to strong.. ;D
Ohwell! I wont forget!
Ill stick to the hardwork.. though this weekend its vacation for me for 3 weeks.
Though ill ofcourse take my SB with me and draw like crazy
Here is stuff from today.. not to much!
Spend to much time on these :X
Im back from vacation and here are some sketchbook pages i made during it
They arent always really great.. it was quite a challange to draw without internet acces
Never able to look up a ref or anything,, but i guess that was a good practice!
Crit as much you like i think i need them! I mightve slipped into bad habbits..
Here we go:
absolut doodle/study crap:
I btw might wanna search for some other file hoster since photobucket is started to delete more of my content.. maybe its becomming more convincing?
Anyone got tips?
Well it seems that there are still perspective issues mate (esp. the first face)
Other than that there's the random anatomy proportions inaccuracies, (some arms are too short for example) which I think you'll solve with mirroring your stuff (literally).
Another thing I'm missing is value work - you should add shading in your sketches, make it a rule of thumb from now on
I am impressed with the fact that you know where each muscle fits! That's ridiculous ... you're like a live anatomy book
Anyways, great to see an update from you, and I like the volume! I want these amounts daily, or I'll fly to The Netherlands and whip you till submission - AND I'M NOT KIDDING. (I am kidding actually haha)
very nice sketchpages, dude.
looks like the pencilrendering is really coming along if you take your time!
those fully drawn pages with studies and fun stuff from mind look great
I like this one esp. http://i421.photobucket.com/albums/p...IMG_0010-3.jpg
@Monotony: Thank you Thank you! I still dont have complete feel for it..
Cuz i cant always control what i do *its not spasm or something!... *
Why u like that one? I thought there where better ones but kek.. thnx!
here is some crap :X
Apart from the face pages im not statisfied with the rest
Must say i have been working on my website.. something im not really good at!
And also found out i dont know shit about photoshop ://////
Took me a while to find a something to crit
But I do see that when you're drawing your face at 3/4 the mouth often goes out of perspective also the rest of the features o the face may "slide a bit" off the center of the face.
(The value portrait needs more contrast, esp harder darks.)
Other than that, it's great to see you do a variety of different faces, and your gestures and figures rock!
Which leads me to me next point: it seems you settled down in a comfort zone of pencil figure sketches, and I think you should do more of these:
*Draw an object in color from life.
*Read up on Gestalt and do some composition thumbs.
*3-point perspective studies.
*And most importantly - do some Environments/Sci-fi/Creature design/Characters - Join the weekly activities here on CA! (it's really fun too)
I will be expecting something different in the next update
Brewin: Thanks for giving me the assignment to get oncomftable
And thanks for linking that stuff! Its great ! Its quite the same info as i once found a some loomis book but its always good to read it again! Thnx!
Muz: Thnx m8 good to see you looking through here
I dont know how to fix my sketchpages for everyone.. if i turn them darker peope start complaining there is no value in them cuz everything is dark XD so .... ohwell! Thnx !
For today.. 2 character designs and a traditional study from my bust XD
Thing I noticed is that you need to get a bigger value range and some higher saturation in some places.
I suggest doing more still lifes and copying photos FTW. (while doing more of these! they're awesome man!)
Shading is off in some places too.
The bust painting might need more highlights (though it could just be a bad pic )
I just viewed your sketchbook from the beginning to the end, and I have to say that I am really impressed by the progress you have made. Very inspirational journey, my friend. Your sense of proportion is much better than it used to be, and so are your anatomy-studies. I love the Brigdman -studies on this last page, by the way! I should do more of those myself.
I also like the character-design ( a sci-fi -medic of some sort? ), but it seems a bit flat. Try to add some shadows to the lower skirt area as well, and make the contrasts a bit higher. Otherwise it's very nice.
@Brewin: thnx I always just start scribbling away at it and sometimes forget where its going But thnx again for pointing it out
@Arthe: Thank you for the kind words Bridgman rocks, though sometimes hard to follow in my opinion :X The char design was just to do something new,, im not great at it.. and coloring this chick ( indeed a medic ) only took 15 mins or so .. shouldve put more time into it right.. ohwell
Here is some stuff of what i made today.. i actually have some sketchbook pages aswell.
But dont think its worth showing ;D maybe tomorrow
a screencap/colorstudy from meet the spartans..
a char design: I almost always end up drawing a dress.. help i suck at clothings..
WHOA man, great volume! You're really hammering down anatomy.
Everything is just fluid and awesome
The Rocky study needs more work, you can do better.. get into all the nitty gritty details next time, and post the ref!
Lady portrait looks great.
The bottom portrait is good too, but watch the wrinkles on the face, They're too big. It's also a bit more messy too.
I think you're also using bad settings for your PS work- experiment with brushes and check what you do and don't need on pressure sensitivity for each thing.
(And don't think I forgot about composition thumbs, enviros and perspective studies)
