    Kageko s sketchbook (updated a few times a week)

    Yeah hi, name's Chris and im mostly a 3dartist, but recently ive found some free time, so i figured id use it productively and start painting and work a bit on my concepting, so ive started sketching and now im hopefully going to keep this up, hence starting this thread.

    EDIT: changed first post so i can upload newest pic for the thumbnails...

    quick update...one figuredrawing i didnt get attached last time and a concept for an alien race. spent about 4 hours on the concept, think i spent about 2 hours making it humanoid and not human, also i changedmy style a bit for this one, trying to focus on make the forms look believable, using a chalkbrush =P

    You're off to a good start. One thing that will help the figure drawings is to think of the figure as a whole, not in parts. Try to stop using such short quick lines and go for real smooth, flowing lines.

    hey again

    this time i spent most of my time reading one of andrew loomis' books and trying to apply his techniques, didnt really get the planes as u might notice, ah well, gotta practise more =)

    anyway... heres 2 pages of my sketchbook today, mostly headstudies, i also tried ur suggestion kapil, on the bottom guy, i just made one long line for the arms and did the same for the legs, it turned out to be a pretty neat trick ^^

    didnt rly spend too much time thinking about the faces or the anatomy on the posed dude. Also i went a little overboard with the concept when i was playing around with the brighten/contrast tool in ps, im considering it finished for now, but i still would like some crits on it so i can improve the next one, doesnt feel like i did the whole painting with an overlay layer right...

    Hope to hear more useful crits =)

    a friend of mine suggested i should make my paintings less cluttery (i tried to mimic some cool artists ive seen lately and ended up making everything fubar)

    so i tried doing a portrait with strong colours (did this with a diffent tech as well, tried using colors from the start instead of doing greyscale first)

    ok, so i kept on doing some of the lessons i found over on the mentorforum (or whtever its called xD) feels rly good practising the basics, im not too sure i did this right, but hey, i hope i did... please feel free to give me some crits, i need to know if im doing something wrong (which i probably am... ) =)

    the goal of these lessons was to get a better grip on specular shading, and shading in general really...felt alot more comfortable this time, i think i overused the selectiontools in these excercises -.- u live u learn right?

    (for some reason photoshop freaked out on me and made the standard settings for a new document for grayscale 8 bits, it also made the popup list in the save as window about half as short, so i cant save as jpeg and i have to use save for web instead, anyone know why this is?)

    ok so i did the thumbnails lesson, must say i enjoyed myself a little too much on these, probably ended up spending an hour on each on average, some longer some faster...=P first 8 of 16... and as usual, crits are more than welcome
