SWANN SB | Work harder dam you!
Ah its good to be back, I dislike my old account and I had a massive break from drawing and CA.org ... but I have been drawn back... you get it? drawn back lol. Yes! As I was saying My last sketchbook showed me how far I have come and all the things that I failed to learn. I thought I was cool skipping anatomy and basic colour learning's. I had no direction in my work, just total RANDOMNESS! So I now have a desire to L3rN! With my basic sketches I want every flipen line to have purpose, the desired effect is total awesomeness. This is difficult to archive yes... but as all never ending processes at least you get to see development and a driving hunger for it to have more purpose and definition.
Well that's about all I have to say for now.
3 months is a long time to not draw and I'm itching to do some more detailed drawings. I'm looking for to hearing were I can improve!
[EDIT] 11.02.2011. Studying Illustration atm, but i'm still going to work my
butt off here as well!

Seriously now, its great to see you back at Ca. and I agree with Lilnebo, you've improved already. its nice to hear that you're motivated to draw and to learn. Just keep drawing and learning and above all, have fun =)

I'm in awe from your anatomy studies, would love to see some torso and head shots, and your line works on those drawing is amazing!

I'm liking your attitude. And your Toontown-like puns. Ahem.
Very nice and detailed anatomy studies. Where are they copied from?
Wolverine, never got the appeal of his hairyness. I always liked the idea of blades (claws?) coming out of his knuckles, though, otherwise, he's all wrong. This wasn't really a comment to your painting, sorry.

Walid D: Yes i almost got around to doing a fruit... i keep putting it off, thanks for reminding me... i won't let myself paint anything else till i get that done. Seriously i know i need to do a life paint so can learn colors.
OmertA: Will do
kelly x: Yes they are... took so long to do, i want to do some more arms and facial and torso... but seriously who has the time ha ha.
ValUST: I noes more anatomy would be awesome, but I'm still totally anatomyied out from my last blast of learnings.
Leonor: Thanks, I copied them from Anatomy For The Artist - by Jeno" Barcsay, found it laying in a pill of books at a bookstore of all places... lol
Doodle during class... its not that boring i just learn better when i draw... seriously it works for me ha ha. Progress of a Hellboy paint... ah I freaking love Hellboy i kept forgetting to do some fan paint. I got his anatomy down now for color and maybe texture if ever figure that *&%$ out. And finally my Wolverine NO. 2 paint attempt thingy... i hate flatness and soft brushes it looked better when i didn't try to blend the facial colors... sigh i hate learning... WHY CAN'T I JUST BE GOOD! dam it...

hi dude, nice updates, havnt been here for a while, I like ur anatomy studies, and the last wolverine piece is really good, needs some cleanup, but its looking great ^.^
June 22nd, 2009 #15
OMG my first finished piece... took forever!!!
lilnebo : Thanks good to be back, i hope you like my finished wolverine!
Lotet : Thanks, i did some clean up ta da...
HOLY COW! i finished a digital paint for the first time in my life ha ha!
Seriously excited about it, i think I'm gonna go celebrate!
June 28th, 2009 #16
Congrats mate on the finished piece, it's looking awesome!! Now go celebrate
I defenitely think you should try and finish the first Wolverine pic as well (the one from May 27th), it's got potential. Just render it up and tighten it at some places and <POP>, you're there! (Tehehe, sounds like a piece of cake, doesn't it?) No but I mean, the rendering is loads better in the last one but in the first one the colors really are much better. So give it a shot!
Thanks a lot for the crits btw! A big bunch of helpful advice is always motivating ^^
Keep it up, keep practising, studying and posting!

sweet! I think u can bump up the contrast on wolfie, and make cast shadows on hes face from the claws.
June 30th, 2009 #18
Evergrey : Thanks, yeah i neglected to put obscure coloring in my new paint and allot of other things could be done as well but I'm done with these paintings . Maybe I'll do another wolverine one day, but for now I think I'm over portraits.
Lotet : That would look mad. I'll think about it.
Was looking around the photoshop forums trying to find something to do. and ran in to Bumskee's Digital painting forum.

Woh, nice apples! Man, I hardly even remember you having troubles with the digital rendering, you've improved sooo much! Like, congratulations or something =P I guess it's hard work paying of. Keep it up, you're doing great!
July 8th, 2009 #22

July 11th, 2009 #23
Lakka : Yes they are
Evergrey : Thanks, though i don't know about never having trouble with digital rendering 0~o. thanks anyway though. im getting there. i really need to work on proportions for now. no more painting least till i have done a tone of studies.

Hey dude, nice stuff ! I like your hands ! For the still life painting, i find that this is already detailed at the block in stage Really use a bigger brush, make it really rough ! For the spoon, you should more think about edges ! For metalic stuff, edges are even more important than for usual stuff, like apples and fruits and human figure ! Keep it up
July 14th, 2009 #26
Man, this last bunch of moving figures and hands is great. The large quantity of quick sketches really seem to help you loosen up. The muscles studies you did way back, and the apple still life are great, too. Keep working on those skills!
July 15th, 2009 #27
Walid D : thanks man, i got a little lost rendering that spoon, edges, i get it now thanks a bunch.
Cacodaemonia : Thank you, I really do want to keep doing more gestural stuff especially when i haven't done any drawing in a while.. need a workout
this turned out really good. i have to say bumskee's environments truly inspired this piece, i love his work. spent most of my morning painting this, added light filtering and ambience just now for effect... I'm gonna post both

Great enviro! I have to say, I prefer the one without the lighting effects. The two long beams of light that radiate from the end of the trail toward the bottom corners of the image are very distracting, and make the image too symmetrical. I think some of the glow you added around the tree leaves near the top looks okay, but the beams just seem weird to me.
July 20th, 2009 #30
duuuuude, great progress! the one without light effects is better., and the hands are really good, seriously mate, those last posts are awezome, gief more!
