    Muz: Hehe right before I read this post I mad a custom pen brush very similar so the two together will be great! Thanks Muz

    rogerb: Thanks!

    jatherip: Thanks, all these gestures are 30sec each so I hope through practice I'll get the proportions down consistently.

    Mark Vatsel: Thanks Mark, ill work on my values.

    andres333: Thanks! I was recently in a portfolio critique with Jason Manley and John English and at their advice I'm focusing on my proportion and light studies as well as 5 master copies that are in progress. So I wont be going back to full character design for awhile.

    A tua me: Thanks!

    Cast Light study from observation and imagination (about 20 min) and dailies.

    I really am enjoying drawing from life now. It feels like my digital work is starting to influence some of my choices in traditional media and that's exciting. The first two are about 15 min each. The second two are 1/2 hour each. It's hard to resist character design so I just had to go for it. Guess I'm not taking a break from characters hehe

    rogerb: Thanks! Yea I think I'll try more then 30 sec gestures to focus on the proportions better.

    Here are my dailies from yesterday and today. I decided to bump the time from 30 each to 60 sec today to give me time to focus on proportions better.

    It's been 9 days since your last update

    If 2 weeks pass and there is no update (or a justifiable reason), I'll have to kick you out.

    Had a look through your stuff and it's great to see such a varied sketchbook! The thumbnails on the previous page are stand-outs, but my favourite of your works are the females. You have a real sensitivity that comes through when you draw/paint them, love to see more of those. More refined sketches of the human form along side all your gestures would be a good idea I think, will give you a chance to try to implement what you're learning.
    Don't know how you managed to swing a portfolio review with Manley and English but for goodness sake do as they say!! haha

    Peace
    Dan

    cool stuff. I wouldn't worry so much about getting fast. Really take the time to get it right first. Speed will come later. I like the two girls up a couple posts. The speed drawings are nice maybe for warmups, but I'd like to see some more thought in form and shape instead of just gesture.

    Take care!

    danlambert: Thanks dan! I appreciate the comment about more refined work. I think it will help me to push my standards for my own art.

    le capitan: Welcome to our SSG le capitan! I'll try to work on some longer drawings, thanks!


    Here are some gestures, thumbnails for an illustration, life drawing and a sketch for the same illustration.

    I like the designs you put on your characters. Especially the last one. In the last drawing something feels off with the torso, but it might be because her large breasts are covering up most of her torso and that's throwing me off. Maybe her neck is too long and it's making the torso look smaller in proportion?

    That last drawing looks great, her pose and expression are perfect, although there are a few anatomy niggles like tdHendrix mentioned. I think her legs look a little short currently and her breast shape looks a little off.
    Will be cool to see how this one develops.

    Peace
    Dan

    tdHendrix: Thanks td, yea her neck in the last drawing does seem a bit too long.

    danlambert: Thanks dan! I'll keep your suggestions in mind if I continue working on that sketch.

    Here is some new work
    -A sketch from imagination (trying to see if my understanding of anatomy is improving).
    -Life study about 15 min
    -some hair studies
    -sketch from mostly imagination

    Cool stuff! Really liking this last digital lady. The hair texture is awesome!! Her lips are off though. Try drawing a guide line down the center of her face to center the lips more in perspective. Also they look a little big.

    cheers!

    Interesting stuff. I like the 4 faces you did. Reminds me of fashion style drawing. I agree with le capitan about the lips looking off.

    le capitan: Thanks!

    tdHendrix: Thanks!

    So I made the lips a bit smaller and played with the eyes and hair some more. She is smirking so her lips are kind of skewed to her left side so I'm not sure if its a matter of defining some more lines so the smirk reads better or if I just have to adjust the lines in the lips already.

    I really like the look of that unfinished life painting in your last update, are you using painter? How are you finding it?
    Also really liking your economy of line in those female heads, are they from your head? The hair styles are great. Would be nice to see some value on them.
    Last one is looking gooood, Andrew Jones would be proud of the hair ha! I like the way you're incorporating different brushes and textures into your portraits. I think that the main issue is still the lips, they seem to be off centre with te other features on the head, a smirk would extend the corner of the mouth to one side but not the entire mouth itself.

    Looking forward to more man, I really like your style

    Peace
    Dan

    danlambert: Thanks Dan! Yea I have been influence by Android for sure. His approach to painter is so interesting. I enjoy pulling shapes from chaos so I'm happy that you think he would dig it. I am using painter for these pieces. I start from a photograph for about 5-10 minutes then toss the photo and work from imagination the rest of the few hours I spend on the painting. I'll take another close look at the lips and see if I can adjust them to fit better. The hair studies are from some salon photos I found online. I really enjoyed the hair styles so I just wanted to sketch them, nothing too serious.

    rogerb: Thanks for the motivation. I'll keep working

    A few years ago one of my art teachers introduced me to the artist Jim Dine. His work had such an interesting unfinished/finished quality that struck me and I find myself turning back to that concept along with specific line quality from studying Luis Royo and Victoria Frances. It's funny how almost any established artist will say don't try to force style, just draw and it will come naturally. After about five years of drawing I feel a style starting to emerge and it's exciting. I want to explore the idea of black/white, color, and line that play with each other on the canvas. So here is the next stab at it.

    you have some really interesting stuff here. I like how you use color. The color you use is really varied and goes well together. I just finished a lemon in digital painting and I found that I'm really into mixing and blending. Keep up the good work!

    I agree with roger. First face looks sweet. Second one needs some work with the facial features. I like the designs on the third page. Some have a native american style to them.

    rogerb: Thanks! Yea that was just a quick sketch I might go back to it in the future. I agree with the second one too, more bone structure would help.

    Lyno: Thanks!

    tdHendrix: Thanks! I'll keep my facial features in mind.

    It's been too long since my last post. I recently had to replace my motherboard but no excuses! Anyway here is my latest entertainment illustration from start to finish. The end b/w image was used for t-shirt printing and the color image for posters. It's for a Gaming convention in Manitowoc WI. called Fire and Ice. The first thumbnail is the piece that got me the job

    It's great that you're doing all these pencil sketches. Those are really going to pay off (they already have from page 1). Your Photoshop paints need to be cleaned up quite a bit, but that will come with practice. I would suggest using as few textures and fancy brushes as possible, you will learn a lot more about painting in PS if you limit yourself to a few standard brushes.
