I did some studies today from a natural encyclopedia.
Haven't updated in a bit, here is some of the stuff i've been doing recently.
I did some Bridgman studies.I was trying to do them like the way i learned how to write letters as a kid,
maybe i should do 15 of each to familiarize myself better with whats going on.
The other was a tab....exhilarating stuff. and te other was some awful doodles from last night.
Not much just some doodles.
I was trying out some texture from a photo on the sea monster.Not really sure if I should,or if im doing it right.
Haven't updated in a while,I've been busy with school and I had to do my portfolio to try and get into to art college.
Here is a ton of stuff from my Sketchbook for the portfolio.I'll separate them into different posts because there are a lot. Some things are recycled images.
More stuff from the portfolio sketchbook.
Here is the rest of the stuff from the portfolio sb.
The madworld picture was the first time in ages I've been able to do what i wanted,i messed it up a ton but it was fun.
I did some creatures today,nothing i'm happy with as they don't really make much sense.They were fun to do anyway.
i noticed your faces need work and your anatomy needs a bit of work as well, but it is better then your faces. Your painting skills and shading are quite good though. Anyways just work on what i said and get better ^_^
- Nice to see a fellow Irishman! although im technically not irish xD my family is, but w/e.

Another Irish member! we seem to be coming out of the woodwork recently. And a Depeche Mode quote in the sig. Nice touch.
Your portfolio pieces are very diverse, but probably a little over the top. You have to work up the presentation of all these - professional and neat is way more important than colourful.... the page with the brigman studies and the tap is a great example of doing it well. Strong, well organised portfolios get noticed far more than ones that shove in everythig, and some of the places where you've put green or black and yellow stripes behind you subject for no real reason just detract from the quality that is there.
And it is there. You've got a lot of promise. I'm going to keep coming back.. maybe an Irish Sketchbook group is on the cards....
