Aw i hate it sooo much that there is nooo atelier no lifedrawing classes here, i would really like to improve my anatomy knowledge, ok enuff of whining.
You guys remmember that sketch that i did some time ago? Well i finally sat down and spent some time on this piece, it's still in a very rough stage, blocking in objects, etc. I plan to add some more walking corpse in the background and some artificial lights later on. Anyhoot this guy was not around for a while so he's pissed and hungry, run ya'll flesh sandwiches!
Dude my advice go to the basics and abuse them open those bridgemans and loomis and all the other guys and study them until you puke, ye ye I remember what you said about studying from books, but how do you think Miles, Hannes, cole.. and many more got to where they are hnmnm?>? you really think they all could afford to go to art classes and ateliers and hire live models? dude the books stick to them, first thing I'm gonna do when I come back to my studies is exactly that.
Flesh sandwiches hahhaahh sounds tasty actually xD
In any case, i could whine all day about our entire country and it's artistic overall non-interest!
But in the end, i don't have a choice right now and i have to endure it. Till i get all know-how in medicine and move to a better place.. (hope)(hope)(hope)
In any case, the wip looks good so far. Watch it with his neck thouhg, not to make it stiff looking or twisted. But then again, you might be aiming for that.
hey man, i don't know exactly where to begin or what you're looking for. so i just did a few notes on the last figure drawing you posted. i think you're doing a great job with your digital paintings already--in a lot of ways, i think you've got a head start in me with your color choices. it's just a matter of pushing your values a little bit more, and developing a little more confidence with your lines/shapes. but you're really close. the difference is just correcting certain curvatures, and pushing certain rhythms to tie the whole thing together. "big picture" kind of stuff that's hard to focus on until you get really comfortable. just hang on and you'll get there.
thanks for looking at my SB.

Hey fella: nice swamp! Get thee hence. more environments please XO
wuuuuushuuuuuuu .... aaaa. this one is pretty neat , i really like how the body looks, in this stage has some sort of mysterious disturbing quality, it wold be really nice if you can manage to keep that fresh and take a couple of parts, throw some more detail, or not, but for a more complete and ineligible look you will need to clean a couple of regions, to sharpen some edges , establish some perspective on the arm and maybe detail as well
take care man
Danny_K Aaaah, booooks! noooooo!
Aw ok, but only for you, i hate books they are sooo, booksy.. haha.
BlackDelphin Glad you like it Cris'
JustinBeckett Will do! Thanks.
ChromaticCodex Thanks, oh maybe, maybe
ccsears I don't know how to thank you Chris, it's a pleasure and an honor for me. Thank you for your will to help other people, not many actually do that, you're THE man.
Giorge Many thanks G, i'll consider that, thanks for useful advice.
Some sketches doe today.
I've tried vilppu's gesture aproach, i must admit it ain't that easy yet.
They're not the greatest, my hand got a little rusty
Bgrrrrrr don't do it for any one else and not for me but for yourself, when you study keep your mind on the material in front of you instead of what will you show on your thread, it's studying first showing second not the other way around sorry if I'm nagging I want to see you succeed instead of going in loops.Danny_K Aaaah, booooks! noooooo!
Aw ok, but only for you, i hate books they are sooo, booksy.. haha.
Hey mate, things looking great!
I remember looking thru your SB last autumn, not really liking what I saw..but now a half year later its packed with intresting stuff! Your progress is one of the most impressive on CA. Really.
The enviro on page 19 is a great start. I would have expected alot worse for a first try.
Keep on rocking man, im rooting for ya
EDIT: I agree with what Danny said above. Its sooo easy to get lost in how studies "look" that you dont learn as much as you should. I spent most of my first 4-5 months paying too much attention to how it looked, and I later realized that I didnt learn what I drew, I just drew a shape, trying to ape after the shape that I was using as reference.

Danny_K I'm just foolin' around. You know that i study from books from time to time i bet, i just don't like it, not that i don't do it
krel Glad to hear that, but that enviro is not 1st it's third actually
The problem with me is this, at first i loved to render i did render render, render, then i was doing speedpaintings for over 6 months and i liked it so much, that i lost the passion to render. Now i need to slow down and try to merge the two.
Here's a movie shot study i did today, 40 minutes of painting, 2 hours of trying to find a more or less matching color heh. After all it was more photoshopping', than painting

Lovin' it mate, great sketches, and that moive-still looks awesome!
Great textures and amazing colour skills! Keep pushing the pure figure drawings. I want to see that colour level also in the pencil stuff. Would be closing the difference of levels, because your colours seemed to be levels ahead. I would pay something to have your colour skills. Keep on posting!
I think your attempts at the gesture drawing Villipu style are great and with more practice will only get better. I am going to try some gestures when I get the chance. I hear what your saying about preferring to work from a live model as well rather than books. It's kind of the reason I have been putting off starting to draw the figure. I think a combination of both is ideal rather than focusing on one. I am lucky that I have some life drawing classes in my City even though I have to travel far for them which is the reason I am yet to go. You just have to do the best with what resources you have I suppose.
Keep up the progress!
UmpaArt: I did not get the question.
Danny_K Ah, you are right about the sleeve, but adding really hot reflections wold draw the attention off the eyes which are my focal point.
Thanks for advice brother :]
JailHouseRock2 Heh great sketches you say, it's kind of you but i know they're lame, well or atleast not as good as yours, cheers.
soros Thanks man, it's mostly because i work too little with pencil, that's about to change. Thanks.
UrbanHermit Thank you, i'll try to combine both, i'm starting to pick up the pace. I'll get myself a personal model if it will be necessary haha!
So ladies and gents i've had 2 rough days, when nothing was coming along, both in drawing and had some health problems also. I've managed to focus and get clear state of mind, so i'm back!
Some pencils from that fail days and some a bit less fail'ish; but i'm recovering.
P.S The last one is obviously still not finished.
Nice reference studies! Also those last pencil quite cool. Keep it up!
Nice cs5 portrait and i like that soldier movie study. Killer work!
Some sketches, and a creature cooncept sheet.
All those creatures are done from imagination, will color and further flesh them out later.
Oh i almost forgot, i have ordered Smudge Guard an awesome glove which serves well in traditional techniques and works sweet with tablets.
