    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!

    Hey thanks for dropping by!

    Good to hear that you've taken up drawing back again. I suggest keep doing posemaniacs or bridgeman studies to get the proportions right. Keep it going dude!

    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.

    sigh...

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
