    Here it goes the final version of my painting for the CGTalk Steampunk Challenge.

    It's not perfect, I still need to learn about skin rendering and volume and light and composition..........
    But this is the best I can do with my actual skills.

    I'm happy of some things I improved in this piece: the texture rendering, a first thought about composition, and the expression, on which I worked a lot.

    So, waiting for my future improvings, I can consider myself quite happy of this...considering my previous painting, this is a visible improvement, IMO....and, after all, it's a mileage ^_^

    I really like your sketches, especially the eyes!
    the last one is looking great, her hair and her monocel are really nice. I like steampunk hehe ;D
    One thing though, the folds on the dress look like a crystal of some sort, to hard

    areve thank you for your comment
    The dress was of leather, in my ideas, so I wanted it to feel hard...then, maybe it's too much ...

    Thanks again. Good to know someone's keeping an eye on me. It's a good kick and go drive I need for studying. Instead of going off into drawing from imagination. Thanks for your help

    Not sure if this helps,
    pencils suck at half-tone shading, from my experience, you get the best results with contrasted shadows like you drew on the last sheet, second column, third down. High contrast on the cheek, eye and nose makes a good form definition. It takes skill not to turn pencil half-tone shading into pile of dirt. Atleast for me .
    Also notice that you can define the form by stroke directions (round strokes where there are round forms to define, straight for flat planes and so on).


    here is nice skill pencil shader:

    and here is a dirt sheet.

    Lakeland hmm yes I think I understand what you mean.
    My main problem is that I feel someway "stuck" when shading, like...afraid.
    I mean, when doing the line, I feel everything flowing as I want it to do, I feel confident and I know what I'm doing.
    When trying to render the volumes, I feel like a child with his first attempt at pencils O_o
    I don't know what kind of hatching to use, I don't feel comfortable with it, I feel undecided and I finish with messing up everything.
    Now, I don't know if it's a question of learning the good method, or if it's just a question of practising practising and experimenting...
    honestly, I'm quite confused right now ^_^

    Thats looking better already , but dont stop there, keep at it.

    Just for some inspiration, and to show you some different pencil technique i want to show you some drawings of Ben Hale, aka makkon, who i know from another forum, though i think he was around here too before he went on mission.

    sketch1 sketch 2 sketch 3 sketch 4

    You will notice how he focuses on the major planes, and even though it is drawing with pencil on white paper he still manages to convey a good range of value. He actually draws in the shading before he goes back in an ads lines. I know that you probably wont adopt this style but perhaps you can pick up some helpful info.

    I was just about to post a tut for how he does it exactly but the forum i have to grab the link from has just gone down for a bit.....

    ill post it as soon as it comes back up

    TITS!

    ....now my nose is bleeding . thank you!

    try to draw bigger in general iīd say when drawing from life , makes you sure to observe every wrinkle of cloth if needed , and gives you more confidence by time. do 2 - 5 minute gestures on an A3 paper it helps to loosen up also.
    regarding shading... i donīt know how they do it..
    keep posting!

    oh that definately sounds like an awnser on why no life drawing, sounds quite awful

    anyway, apart from mum and dog, the're still going to be chairs , tables, lamps and stuff outside of the window to draw, that still counts

    you're progressing very fast, don't slow down! ^^

    ciao

    EDIT: nevermind alex's second comment, he's just jealous of me and where i post

    I checked out Linda Bergkvist and your right there is some really great tutorials in there. I will be checking them out when I next get out my digital brushes.

    So do I - and not because I'm a guy! Men just don't have the nice flowing curves and lines that women do.

    I dig your studies, some are really well drawn. I see u draw alot, that's good!

    "Now, I don't know if it's a question of learning the good method, or if it's just a question of practising practising and experimenting...
    honestly, I'm quite confused right now ^_^"

    I think it's both. Pretty simple.
    You learned the good method, then practice it.
    As long as you are practicing, you are going the right direction.

    What I would strongly recommend is getting a digital copy of Andrew Loomis Life drawing. (or ANY of his book)
    He is consider one of the GREATEST art teacher of ALL TIME.
    I learn so much through that book, and I'm sure you will too.

    Just google it up and download it. Type something like = Andrew Loomis Life drawing pdf

    thanks damdischink, I didn't know about that Loomis book, I'm gonna search it
    If I can find the good method somewhere, it would really help in my practice
