    I don't normally do things like this, but here is a quick spaceship. I did a few, but they looked soooo bad that I just drew over them.
    I found it really interesting. Made me think loads. I need to work on these haha.

    Fantastic sketchbook, really phenomenal. Your renders in graphite are very impressive in particular.
    100 pages? Do it. I'll give you at least two pieces of apple pie if you do.

    Hi! Like your sketchbook! Especially the pics from your Moleskine on page 4. Your portraits are looking pretty good.

    Hey you two, thanks for the comments.

    Osau- Thanks, 100 it will be! And I like pie, so motivation + 1. Cheers for stopping by.
    NicG - Thanks. They are what I have practised most, so I'm glad it shows. Now to bring everything else up to that standard, and raise everything after that. hehe

    Here is a painting of a space ship again. Started with shapes and built up. I find it very brain tingling to have to keep everything symmetrical and in 3d (still some problems, need to fix quite a few things, including a lot of cast shadows, and a lot of things with the wings). Very fun to just render things as I want. I think it is going pretty good, I will go back to it.

    hey man, hows it going?

    sorry for not commenting for a long time. there certainly has happened good stuff since my last post in here. I like where your figure drawing is going. What you should try to do is to see the shape of the figure. the whole figure--> the silhouette. if you get that right, your drawing will read more clearly. to see only the shape of a figure is obviously not that easy as your eye also sees all the crazy flesh tones and highlights and whatsoever! but you can force yourself to learn to see the shape and get away from a linear world by taking a piece of charcoal and literally "blocking in" the silhouette. once you are happy with that you can go back to lines. but your perception will have changed, now you will try to draw the outlines of a shape, not some crazy unrelated lines in space. if you think about it, the world around us is made up of shapes anyways, not lines.

    this will make much more sense if you try it.

    I hope I didn't confuse you. "try to see that shape" I guess thats my message in this comment

    EDIT: the thing I want to say is hovering very clearly in my head, but man! the english language is hittin hard on me today :/

    EDIT: EDIT: XD that still life is great, keep doing more of them!

    RAGE is right. When ever that happens, I make basically what is that "FFFFFUUUUUUUUU..." face. It was beautiful while you had it, at least.

    Keep posting more work. Your in the right direction for someone who is 18. Keep practicing your values and tones. It looks like it is paying off.

    Φ phil - Thanks a lot for the comment dude. Much appreciated, and mega help. I however can't just do what I like in the life drawing sessions. Our 'tutor' tells us what to do. For example, we had to use one line for 4 poses, which I thought was uber pointless, but whatever. Thanks anyhoo.

    Turbosnail - Thanks! Will do

    GoGoJojo - I know, I was sooo pissed. Thanks.

    Istmin52 - Cheers, I'm working on it.

    Here is another oil paint. Parts I like, parts I don't. I really need to get a cardboard box and some black paint so I can actually have a black background, instead of just doing one anyway. It was white, but changed things accordingly. I like the bit I'm showing you the detail shot on. Need to think more of temperature shifts. blah blah blah.

    Well man i feel like a dick because i cant give you as indepth crit as you gave me but anyway,

    well many your painting skills are fucking awesome your drawing skills are great, they could use work if you want to be able to draw amazingly but if you ever look at the impressionists sketchbooks n such they wernt the best pencil draftsment, pencils just a tool for recording ideas more so i think these days, i think your right to focus on painting rendering n using pencil to learn.

    so for the draftman ship i think your really setting a excellent example, just keep working your ass off, experiment too look from alot of differnt sources n shit all that bullshit they tell you in college.

    anyway, here is the big thing i think you've really reached the limit of were your gonna get by painting for paintings sake. look around you you see tons of peeps who do what youve done get good and then just plateu for a few year. i think you need to set your goals higher now and start making actually artwork rather than studies if you know what i mean, think up a really worthy goal put in loads of work and then finally execute that piece. n i dont mean go look up a character of the week topic and aimlessly paint till you get somthing that looks cool.

    but again i can see your starting this but i honestly think if you really start using your skills as a tool rather than the ends you'll reach that next level, sorry bout the terrible grammar... really fucking tired!

    keep it up homie

    Wow, lots of great stuff here. Seems to quiet a shift in quality between some posts though, are you also suffering from inconsistensy?

    I don't know if i should be giving advice being that you are clearly a lot better than me but i think your ellipses could really use some polishing as well as your perspective in general. Just cranking out hundreds upon hundreds of ellipses is great if you need a break or as a warmup, i find it really relaxing myself.

    Check out this free section of a book by Scott Robertson if you feel like working up your ellipses a bit.

    Hey there

    This is a great sketchbook, you work hard and you work well. Your painting skills are good (especially in digital, considering you've just started oil painting! But you're in the right direction with that already), even better than your drawing skills to some degree! You definitely have a form-focused mind more than a line-focused mind, which is great and kind of unusual!
    The stuff in your Moleskine's really showing all your improvement. I'll be checking you out!

    P.S. It also amuses me that you're 18 and a graphics design student like me

    Nrx - Don't feel like a dick haha. I could definately experiment more and work harder. I have a few finished pieces planned. Sketches done and thoughts explored. Just need to get my ass in gear and do them. I want to get my oil painting skills improved before I do any finished work in that medium. I need to do some figures and faces from life in oils. Thanks! Food for thought!

    Citrusfrukt - Don't be silly! You don't need to be a perfect artist to see flaws in art. I have been doing some perspective. A lot of reading, and a lot to take in. Thanks for the comment.

    Zorcron - Thanks for the compliments. Will do, cheers

    Ariel 9 - Hi! Thanks a lot. I kinda wish I wasn't doing the graphics course, and I would have dropped out if it wasn't such a laugh and because of the life drawing classes.

    mdbauman - Thanks, I could work a lot harder though. Cheers

    Not a large update. I am pretty ill. I did some life drawings yesterday though:

    I like this one, was going to be 2 * 10 minutes, but it was 10 minutes, then 2 minutes and a fire alarm. I was pretty annoyed considering it was looking strong for me. Oh well.

    rossipoo - Thanks!
    Nrx - haha, cheers. I have got a breif for college, and I am planning to digital paint most of it. It will be my best work yet.
    NicG - Thanks man.

    I'm just uber psyched for art right now. Bobby Chiu has totally pumped me up.
    Got more, but am too psyched to take photos.

    Thanks Exon-Ion. I will hopefully do more oil paints. I did 1 last night, but was too tired/ill to finish it. And I just wasn't thinking about stuff, turned out shit.

    Still uber pumped. Now I am gonna start targeting my weaknesses and building a portfolio. Landscapes, cause I suck at them and need to get better.
    Weapon designs, to help my imagination and design skills.
    Animals was to draw using curves instead of straight lines, Just trying to change things up and see how it goes.
    Faces and half body was to test different hatching ways and see what happens haha
    Man riding horse- Gonna be a more finished drawing. Will smooth out tones later. Just trying to render it nicely really.
    Last one, I think I will leave it there. About an hour and a half, maybe 2. I didn't pay attention to time after the first 45 mins (the post earlier). I noticed a few errors when saving, mainly edges.

    Thanks Brushcommander! Love your sketchbook, beautiful rendering.

    I'm pretty hungover today, but have done a few things.
    I ruined a sketch today:

    It looks awful. I totally wrecked her eyes. And she looks 90 because I tried to make it look less 2d. Whatever. Live and learn.

    And a photostudy. For this one I worked from the the back toward the front. Was quite fun having a different way of working. I have a list of things to try so that I learn more, and I just ticked that one off!
