    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)

    Hail Ca, I thought it was time to start a sketchbook
    Don't have too much right now, just some digital stuff before I can get my traditional work on my computer. (my scanner is not compatible with my Mac)

    So here's some self portraits for now, and my personal tribute to the mascot of Liverpool: Super Lamb Banana

    1st SP from Dec 19 2008

    Stopping in to thank you for your visit/kind words in my book and extend my own encouragements to you. Your work is improving with each post, if I were to make a suggestion I'd say ease off on the opacity as you get further along in a piece and look for more solid shapes in these faces as the shifts tend to bleed into each other

    and yes. Dev is amazing haha

    Your skill is pretty handy, just brush up on some Loomis and rendering, clean up the edges, and where talking amazing art. Not that this ain't already .

    One more thing, your posts are a little too large.

    婚纱款式的变化

     婚纱款式的变化:最初的婚纱,设计不很复杂。垂直线条的高腰长裙,有褶的袖子和开得较低的领口,仿佛就是当时流 行服装款式的翻版。丝和缎是北京婚纱的主要面料。后来的婚纱款式是长及足踝的,前幅裙用直线剪裁,后幅则缀上另一幅拖地的裙摆,当新娘走在教堂 的红地毯上时,拖地的裙摆也在地毯上徐徐而过,令新娘有天仙般的风姿。以后的婚纱式样,上紧下宽,低领口被端庄的高领口所取代,质料多用华丽的锦缎,领口、袖口和裙摆还缀上了不少花饰。至 19世纪末叶,婚纱的质地渐趋轻柔,双绉纱与塔夫绸最受新娘们的青睐。   20世纪初期,北京婚纱开始变短,同时还兼具舞裙的功能,能让新娘在婚礼的舞会上独具风采。走入30年代,流行婚纱趋向紧身,令新 娘更显娇媚动人。40年代,婚纱简单的剪裁、心形领口和长袖手套成了一种时尚。至60年代,婚纱的长度短了许多,有的甚至跟“迷你裙”没有 多大区别,原料以亚麻布和棉布最受欢迎。70年代的婚纱,呈现出一种浓浓的怀旧情调,款式上又兴长下摆、多 褶,花边层峦叠嶂,极富装饰性,以柔软的肉色布料为主。90年代,婚纱设计打破传统的大转摆式裙设计,并吸 取了流行时装的设计特色。上衣部分的裸露居多;裙子部分有旗袍式、超短裙式,还有一种实用的组合式婚纱,白 天新娘到教堂或晚上宴请宾朋好友时能自行组合

    pages and pages of pencil studies should do you alot of good. Seems you are rushing into digital before getting the basics sorted out.

    Thanks Zeus!
    CamSyko, I do have some traditional sketch shit, but my scanner is a pain in the ass to get to work properly. But yeah, I do need to do more

    K, another self portrait. This one's supposed to be angelic, as too many of my friends on Facebook and some Boy Scout executives were scared by the evil red smiley of DOOM

    Update

    Did this yesterday in my Spanish class
    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)

    Did this today in lunch
    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)

    Did this today in Spanish class.
    Its a spoof of Fight Club, but didn't start off that way. I started off drawing the fist, then I saw the knuckle edges as resembling my hairline, so I drew a more emaciated self portrait. Then I saw the right edge of my hair as a start for a noseline, and the profile head popped in.
    And I saw that it looked like the fist was about to fly in the profile face with me sadistically watching, and so came the Spanish spoof of Fight Club.

    A character WIP I started on today
    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)

    For those of you with Facebook and the My Heroes Ability app, this is my character I named Señor Trueno (Mr. Thunder)

    Still need to figure out a semi-tangible background, but I like what I have in the upper right corner

    Hey thanks for stopping by SB and commenting! You've got some great composition for the portraits and perspective! The forms are reading well too. I see you're also addicted to portraiture, awesomeness!

    Only crit here is that you're digital stuff appears to be too soft and sometimes muddy. It helps to think about edge control whether it be soft, hard, jagged, broken, etc... also when you paint traditional the first inital strokes laid on a canvas has this fresh wet thick paint look, i think it was Sargent who said 'you're not painting unless you use lots of paint' ; i think it'd be neat to see if some of the portraits used as underpaintings and pushed more in terms of hues and value

    keep up them portraits coming!

    Thank you snootchy, I'm still impressed by those last few pics of yours

    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)
    Newspaper (24" x 18") dual self portrait, took 30 minutes to an hour, I lose track of time
    Wait, I think it was an hour, as I went through an entire Pain of Salvation album

    Hail again you beautiful bastards. I've got some new stuff

    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)
    I did this for an advertisment for my school's literary magazine

    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)
    Self portrait on chalkboard. I was bored in history class, as we had over half an hour of free time. Eventually people looked up and said stuff like "Woah, what is Jesus doing on the board?...Nah I think that's Zeus"

    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)
    Here's my semester project for my painting class. Its not quite done, but heres what we were told to do with it.
    Its divided into 6 equal panels, to represent 6 different styles. Done in acrylic
    1st panel: Georges-Pierre Seurat
    2nd panel: Vincent Van Gogh (Man did I fuck up his style. not like he ever impressed me anyways)
    3rd panel: Claude Monet
    4th panel: Mary Cassatt
    5th panel: Marc Chagall (incomplete)
    6th panel: unknown, not even my art teacher has figured this out yet
    I'm pissed that the only art history my school offers is from 1850 forward. Maybe they just can't expect anywhere near the technical skill of the Old Masters from a bunch of measly high schoolers (justified too, as I'm in the 10 percent that actually has talent, and also in the even smaller percent that has drive, everyone else really kinda sucks)

    cool update glad to see you being busy, also the one for ur school magazine shows good potential, i think loosening up some of your strokes and laying down the big shapes first would help

    Thanx again snootchy!
    I showed my magazine's editor the completed ad and she was completely blown away (I did some slight editing on the man too)
    But yeah, theres still some stuff I wish I could do
    Oh well, practice, practice, practice!

    Updates and new crap!

    The Book of Burning - Helltroll's volumes (UPDATE June 23)
    Further work on my acrylic painting. I learned that the 6th panel, I could choose whatever artist I wanted to, so I'll see if I can apply some of Android's technique in the traditional field

    Chalkboard self-portrait I did in study hall. Took me about 2 minutes.

    My first attempt at Painter 11. I downloaded the trial, and I really like the Liquid Ink brushes. Everything else is a little funny to me.

    Heya, Helltroll!

    I added some stuff I think you'll like =]

    As for your sketchbook....
    boy.
    I REALLY want to move into digital in the future.
    I think I'll learn to COLOR first, though ^_^'
    I appreciate the critique very much.
    If you notice anything else, I'll be sure to fix it.

    Take Care,
