    Hawkswift's Sketchbook

    I've been at a plateau art wise for a while so I figured I'd start posting here and see what happens. I've been doing at least one sketch per day for a while now. Varying quality, but so it goes. Anyway, I'll be posting them here once per day in the hopes of improvement. Let me know what you think, what I need to work on, and ideally how I should work on that. Or, you know, not. Whichever.

    Here's today's:

    Nice start! Have you thought about incorperating atmospheric perspective to the second piece? The foreground could use more contrast.

    I tried to add a bit more contrast to the foreground then realized that I wasn't sure of my light source. Anyway here's what I've got.

    I should probably mock this up in 3d so I can get a better idea of the lighting. I think I should have the figure directly lit for added contrast... I'll try something along those lines tomorrow.

    Well, I tried the altered lighting. It's better, but not much better.

    another one that needs a lot of work. I've got an idea of what I want to do now though, which is why I did this. Needs a better background too.

    Excellent stuff! How long it takes to draw it?
    May be your stuff are too much darker

    Mostly I spend between one and two hours per session but without timing myself I can't be sure for any given one. Today's was only about half an hour since I didn't have much time today.

    I agree about things being too dark in the one I did yesterday. I wasn't satisfied with the figures anyway so a lot is getting changed.

    Worked a bit on the background and a very small bit on one of the figures. I need to figure out the foreground. I often find myself having trouble with foregrounds...

    hey man great sketchbook, Your values look great but was wandering if you have any color work or pencil stuff.
    I usually find that i improve after hardcore studies and experimentation with style or different media.
    Can't wait to see your current WIP finished

    I find myself kind of lost when I use color at this point. A lot of it comes from not knowing what value a given color is, I think, but there's a lot about color I don't understand.

    I plan to put color to my current WIP once I have the values done though.

    As for pencils - well, I sketch in pencil sometimes, but I'm not set up for convenient scanning so I don't put many of those online.

    For today I did a little bit of work on the foreground and worked a bit on the two figures on the right. I'm not sure how well the lighting is going to work out over there yet.
