    Eiki, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    You are definitely showing a ton of improvement from the start of your sketchbook, and its been pretty quick too. These last hand studies here are great, the lines look much more confident and fluid. Good work, lets see more of it!

    Your studies are looking fantastic, especially in the hands. Your SB is looking nice.

    A very interesting sketchbook. It's neat to see how you take such a scientific approach. A lot of being able to draw accurately is simply training your eye to see what's really there. It just takes time and practice. You are definitely off to a great start. The hands look wonderful.

    Hey,


    biggjoee5790 Thanks, the hands aren't from photos, but my own left hand from life (some viewed in a mirror) I nearly got a cramp with some poses ^^

    safesheep
    Thanks. Yeah want to do much more but I hardly have time ... again it's so late ... but I'll manage that!!

    OmertA Thank you

    nurraymjo
    Thanks

    Pixie Trick Thank you



    Thanks all for your comments. I decided to do some very basic shape and value studies in form of an apple still life. Because I really suck in values ... And I was quite satisfied with the result. But the scanned pics are extremely bad this time, don't know why ....
    In real life there are much better values ... Would like to show you how it really looks ...


    So here they are.


    Aaaaah I want to sleep now, then I can get up earlier tomorrow and paint

    Fantastic work on the first apple; the part with the shape is very convincing and wonderfully rendered. The second one is a little sketchy; but if you a keep working on studying complicated forms and breaking them down you'll get it. :]

    Hi

    mpdpsy Thanks! Now that I am "back" i really want full speed Hope I will

    Shalite Yeah thanks for pushing me I really have to do maaaaaaaany more of these and that and ... I will get better

    Darkside Thank you

    Eva K Thanks I'll try harder again!


    Longer time I didnt post here because of vacations and a very stressful time in work and little time because of an exam ... But now the exam is over and I will be back and I hope that I wll work harder again! I realized how I missed drawing as well as how I sucked more after that break again..

    So let's go now

    Here is some stuff I did in between ... Some is quite h ^^


    For the next week I set up the goal to create a char after a brief description, because I often do not really know what to do...

    Points are:
    - female
    - polar bear
    - weapon is unusual
    - begins a journey


    Will show some wips with another post... now I don't feel to scan more things ...

    Hi

    so here are the digital concepts ...

    What do you think, considering it should describe the character?
    What could I do better here?

    I see I totally ignored all the big points except that she is female at that stage .... not good.
    - female
    - polar bear
    - weapon is unusual
    - begins a journey


    Last thing to do is a little scene, here I must mind the other points at least.



    There are two similar version, one with dark black shodow stuff ... cause I didn't like here floating as in the first version ... so I added the shadows to let her stay more on the ground, but now it feels very disturbed I think and sidetracks from the char ...



    So here we go.

    Nice start-up here! I think hand studies are the best so far. You really should do more of these since your drawing from imagination needs a little push. But all in all you're on a good way!

    Your studies are good, keep on them

    for this last figure:
    -check his proportions (using heads like loomis does)
    -since it's a stading pose, you can copy one from loomis's book then tweak it (even professional start from ready posed figure to design)
    -check anatomy from a book
    -the description is not really matching the figure: you should choose either tamer or warrior, then collect some photo of real warrior or tamer and pick how they are dressed, wich tools they uses, (perhaps a scares from the bear)


    I difinitely recommand you do more studies(copy books,anatomy,copy masters,life drawing, poses ....) than drawing from imagination.

    studies pays, and remember : no pain, no gain.

    keep posting, see ya

    Hi

    Pretty_Angel
    Thanks. Yeah I think I should do more of these, especiallly cause it was fun
    What do you mean with "needs a little push"? I think that I mistranslated it perhaps

    zou
    HEY! THANKS A LOT FOR THIS COMMENT! I think it really helped me a lot! Most useful critique I ever got perhaps (not to make other comments bad :p but to make this one better)! Because it really motivated me and was kinda straight little critique!
    The "funny" thing here is, that I started using loomis and build the clothes over the loomis poses...
    But now I am motivated to make it better next time!

    Yeah, the description I really ignored a bit ... aaargh ^^


    And now: Study study study

    Thanks




    Did some studies here I cannot be satisfied with .... ooooooooh and that digicam is tilted ...

    But I wont give up

    So here we go
    (There are loomis poses for a man I want to use as a basefor a new char ... but first studies, studies, studies I hope)

    hey


    just decided to continue doing the 100 head workshop from cgtalk
    (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthre...f=199&t=375031)
    I started but dropped a while ago ... 19 I did, so I have 81 to go.

    I hope that in combination with learning from loomis I can make some progress .. But one thing is for sure: I have to work more

    Here is No. 20

    Nice, nice..VERY nice
    I wanted to tell you about your proportions on that original character, but i see you have already done some loomis poses and you have no more trouble with that at all!
    Your posemaniacs are good too!

    BlackDelphin Thanks When I draw and paint I sometimes feel that I have trouble with nearly everything :p But thats just one challenge I want to stand! So I will work to improve, thanks for the kind words.


    When I started the 21 head and noticed, thats the only pic left (of that 100) with a scene and many heads in it, I decided not to rush over it, but to make a longer study.
    There is so much to learn in this piece I think. Not only anatomy, but light, mood, composition, colors, etc etc.

    So here are some wips I have so far.

    Started with a sloppy block in and a little finer line drawing.

    Then I added a new layer with multiply to paint black and white values in the scene.


    But now I do not really know when or whether to merge the line drawing with the black and white layer ... I do not really know the (a good) process to go along in such a painting.
    Or did I make any big mistakes yet?

    Perhaps someone knows some answers or tips Thanks for your help.


    So here we go.

    Hey


    for the next 2 weeks I'll be away in a holiday (camp as a person in charge).

    So I decided to post a little update. Do not have the time to save all new stuff I have at the moment so here are just 3 pics.


    Hope to be able to show much more when I am back ....


    Here we are.

    Hey

    I am back (but do not have much to show yet).
    But one master copy: I began with soft brushes, but now I am sure that softbrushes is no good for me Hard brushes are cooler for me I think.


    And an update of that longer study of the "de bray family"



    Btw:
    Yesterday I visited the musical "Wicked" in Stuttgart and it was indescricable! Wonderful! I am jinxed (if I can say so in English ^^)
    If you have the chance you must visit that! I want again!




    So back to topic, here we go:

    Hey,

    That long study of the family is looking good. You asked a few posts up whether you should merge your linework layer with the one with values. Well, I usually end up merging them, because when I simply discard the lineart the painting beneath it looks suddenly messy, hehe, so I prefer merging and painting on top of the lines. I usually am not sure, though, so I duplicate the lineart layer and keep it invisible in case I need it later

    Good work, keep going

    It doesn't cost You much to leave a comment in my sketchbook, and it can help me a lot.

    Hi

    Thanks Gildorek I haven merged the line drawing yet, but I paint on a layer OVER the line and first shading layer ... I hope that this isn't a very wrong thing I do, because it feels quite fine atm.
    In a way it's like painting the image again on top of what I had ... perhaps not too efficient ^^ but that shouldnt be the problem NOW i think.


    Here is some sketchbook stuff and some little thumb enviros
    .. to show something :p

    Keep doing those studies, you're progressing very nicely. Try doing some self portraits from different angles (not from the absolute front, but say, a 3/4 view).

    Hi

    kingkostas Hey thanks Yeah I have to doublecheck, triple- aaargh quatrocheck the proportions I think But I will try!

    RedSquirrel Thanks for your comment I am very bad at colors, therefore I have not too much of it .... but I must learn that too. In this post there is a first approach. Hope that I can do more little posemaniacs studies again in the next time.

    nurraymjo Thanks

    Flameseeker Thank you That was my plan for the next time ^^ Since I do not have some models which I could draw I wanted to do selfportraits from different angles this time... Will see how it turns out ^^



    Thanks for the replies! That really helps me a lot!!



    So here is some new stuff.
    Tried to color the WIP just to see what I have expected: That there were some big problems with values ... But it helped, and I could fix some things ... will work on that black and white again this week.

    Some perspective stuff and some studies just trying to catch motion ...


    The "pharao like" portrait I drawed without ref turned out too resemble my selfportaits as I rendered the values looking in a mirror aaaaaaaaaargh ^^



    But shouldn't talk so much, better paint now.
