    HAHA@

    So...incase you arn't aware...i have a rather crude sense of humor.
    This was my final project for Traditional typography. I used a personalized update, a funky sort of Updated Roman Script.

    This is an example of why one should not do art while under the influence of miscellaneous substances :3 (no comment)
    I chose this illustration style because it contrasted with the sexual innuendo of the message.

    Don't touch the pussy <Cat>...

    YEEES ! Huge update ! Keep up the selfportraits, you'll improve as hell ! More of everything dude, anatomy, drapery studies, still lifes, ... MOOOORE ! Btw, with the apple painting, you should be careful when using a brush ! A brush is made to express and create different materials, textures ( well it's my point of view ) And Sometimes, i see some artists that over use them, and it just kills their art, their composition, there are too mny informations, the eyes dunno where to look, and i guess for an apple the round brush is great ! Or you can do like Jason chan (who imitated me :p ) and mostly use the round brush ! The 2nd apple has a better feeling ! Well, for colors, don't trust your fucking mind, because it creates some shortcuts ( an apple is green, or red, a lemon is yellow, etc ) and it totally fucks your perception of the real colors that are in front of you ! So if there is a conflict between what you know and what you see, paint what you see ! Also, try to think about the temperature of a color , each color has some cool and warm tons, so when you see a color, really think about the warmness or the coolness of it, and it'll bring your paintings to a new level ! Anyway, keep it up !

    Thanks so much! YEa, ive been having a hard time with color lately. I've almost completely not acknowledged color temperature looking bak at my work. Thanks for the heads up. And with the brushes i do agree about how it can totally kill your artwork.

    Ive been doing the self portraits as a way to push myself stylistically and as a project through which i can continue to explore my tools. Painting/drawing the same subject everyday (my face) pushes me to use my tools in a different way and also to explore my raster programs for new and creative way to solve the same visual problems.

    Your progress is showing greatly; now all you have to do is keep that momentum. you should start focusing a little bit more on traditional media I think, because sometimes it is very easy to get caught up with experimenting with all the different features in some programs. Just keep up this momentum and keep drawing from life.

    callouses on the fingers. If you don’t have any, you’re not drawing enough.

    DStraX: what if my pupils are uneven? lol

    I do a lot of traditional stuff and pencil work in my regular sketch book. I would post them more often but my time constraints dont really offer much room for scanning, resizing, and uploading them.

    But i agree traditional is a good foundation especially in a day when so many young aspiring artists are abandoning the artistic traditions that have given rise to digital media. I am a firm believer that good traditional skill do take an artist from good to amazing. i believe this mostly because almost all the amazing concept artists and illustrators have at some point developed traditional skills.

    Hey, dude, i'm back ! Well, now it's time to talk about some stuff, like values and hatching !

    Well, first values ! As you noticed, the world around us is made of values, from black to white, but really, pure black and pure white are too rare to be painted, that's why most of painters and illustrators use from 15-20 % to 80-90 %grey (sometimes pure black too), and it's really good, well, when i knew that, i made a huge mistake : it was to be sure that i was using from 20 % to 80 % grey, but my inbetween values were messy, but really, a big part of an illustration is made of dark values ( more than 50-60 % grey ) Because well, in real life, the lighest values are the sun, strong light sources, and also some strong hihighlights, but in the art world, the lightest value is your white canvas, and that's why some artists are painting things a bit darker, to create a better feeling of the light ! Well, when you masters the " rules " you can cheat, and leave some white on your characters, like marko does, and other artists, but guys like Jason chan, are still using them ! Really, look at this sketchbook : http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...118736&page=26 , and watch how he's using really dark values, and he's using an " artificial" light fr his characters, that's why the light is loosing strenght, and so between the head and the arms, you can see that values are getting darker ! That's all i know about values !

    Well, now hatching ! well, when i see the character you did ( the one with the pork's head ) it's like you're hatching just to fill in the shadows, well, when you hatch, try to follow the form, and it'll give so much volume on your art ! Just try it with basic shapes, like cubes and spheres, and stuff like that, then, do more and more complicatedwatch how artists like wesley burt and daniel chavez are following forms when they are shading, you'll understand so much things !

    Well, i just woke up, i'm hungry, so c ya dude !

    Hiii,
    Thank you for the comment on my SB :]
    Wow..I can see some huge amounts of progress from the first page to the fourth. Very nice work
    I don't know much about digital painting, but your edges are pretty fuzzy on some things, like the apples, so maybe try to get a more definite edge.
    Keep it comin!! Really like it so far :]

    Got my new brush pen, here is some fresh stuff.

    Im still getting used to the new medium so please excuse the crappiness.
    Ive been pushing myself to work a lot looser and freer cause with pencil and pen i have a tendency not to draw holistically.

    my goal with the brush pen is to be able to just draw freely and not necessarily care if its perfect, just to convey the idea and the sketch.

    with this in mind i would consider the sketchbook a success and the self portrait a failure. i think the self portrait involved to much emotion in the process of creating it and that caused me to approach the subject with tenseness.

    Looking back on the past 6 months of my sketch book i very inspired and excited to see my progress so far. If anything i can say that no one gave anything to me i had to work hard every step of the way. and even in that i must continue to work hard every day to grow and become the artist i want to be in the future.

    i know that i am going to be amazing one day.
    i know that i will change things and inspire people


    I just gotta stay focused and keep working and reaching for my goal every day!

    I CAN DO IT!
