    Good on you- studying faces and all of that as well. Looks like you're getting some great advice and comments, so I'll just tell you to fucking keep it up.

    I need to study faces, too.

    Hey dude!
    Great to see that you are even doing digitals
    I would suggest to draw complete heads in your sketchbook too.
    At the moment your heads in your sketchbook (it is a sketchbook, or?) are looking like "Okay lets do a face *do do do* Hm, looks bad *stops drawing* *new head*
    I hope you know what i mean!

    Keep it up!

    alexson;
    Quick and great response from you my friend. 10 out of 10.
    You have saved my day with this skin tutorial that you have posted in my book.
    I just do not have the right words do describe how much I appreciate this.
    I was looking at this tutorial more than 20 minutes and I was thinking a lot
    about it, and I think that this can skyrocket anyone’s skin rendering qualities.
    I also respect about you, that you have not forgot about my help and
    explanation request, that I was asking from you in your sketchbook, and
    that you dedicated some time to help me out. That just shows alot about
    your true personality. I will always be here, if you need anything.
    Also big thanks for the tip about making the guy look more bulky.
    That thing works indeed, very neat effect.
    You are a true friend.

    shiNIN;
    What would I do without you? Your single touch can turn anything into gold.
    The things that you did with just a few lesser changes on the portrait got my chin
    to hit the ground. You have some talent and you know the way to pull it off,
    but you are too lazy doing things. You could do every day one portrait like this one is,
    and you could render them better than I ever did. So what is holding you back?
    You are helping me to improve with your every post, so I will do anything not to let you
    out from my house. You are mine!!!!! With your body and your soul.

    I did not used the third equal part on the head, cause I was just eyeballing things
    from the photo and tried to nail the likeness in 50 minutes. Main focus was on
    values and getting the shapes right. Well, I mentioned in Devastacio’s sketchbook
    about different angles, cause he was working on the proportions, so it is necessary
    that you put the heads in various angles, but in my case I was aiming to render her face,
    so the best is a view from the front. I mean I could throw the head from in some different
    view, but not much would have been achieved with that. For rendering skin, hair and
    learning to paint eyes, I think this is the best view. There is my explanation. As
    when I was learning perspective and proportions, you can see my tries on the previous
    pages. ‘Grasshopper’ – I like that one, makes me feel kind a comfy, soft and cute.
    I love rough love, sometimes it can be real fun, and I will buy you as many beers
    as you need, you just stick around.

    Sivonja;
    Here I am, on the road again. Maybe when we will be older, we will
    talk about ‘remember when we were young, we said that we are never going
    to give up’. But I just hope that will never happen, and that we are really never
    going to give up. Glad that you like the latest sketches. Thank you for your support.

    NickyBeats;
    Thank you for the input about the pants. Will try to use the best suitable.
    Much appreciate your presence here, please visit whenever you will have the time
    for it.

    Danny;
    I know that it is a long way, but hey, it is a long and fun way.
    Will do more anatomy and head studies, thank you very much
    for the words of encouragement.

    Rotor;
    Welcome back, gosh I am so glad to see you here again, I thought that
    you have been vaporized, like many others out there, but now you are
    back, I hope much stronger than before. I am building a new wrecking
    machine in my garage, hope that you will be willing to participate in
    its construction process.
    Very good that you have bought the beer, please sit down, and enjoy.

    Rafid;
    Alexson just posted an awesome skin rendering tutorial, and I
    was just talking about that in his sketchbook and we should all be
    thankful to him. Just as I am thankful to you for visiting my work
    again and giving me right words of encouragement. Come visit
    again, whenever you can, I will also keep following your digital
    art journey.

    Parsakoira;
    Very beautiful new avatar, I saw that work in your sketchbook and
    it looks amazing. A true master artist you are. Big thanks for your
    visit and for your support.

    Teapo;
    ‘Gastritis and Stomatitis’, that is what the ugly guy is saying above,
    you noticed that real nicely. They are a certain illnesses, and you are
    right they do not sound nor look good. But the bottom line is that you
    are now informed about them, and it is a good thing, cause you learn
    everyday something new. I think that my favorite drawing subjects
    are naked females and heads, so I will practice those things, as much
    as I can in the future. Thank you for fueling my motivational fire.

    Naidy;
    You are like a real magician. You are in some moment here
    and in another you mystically disappear. I will have to keep an eye
    on you from now on you little silly.
    January blues indeed, and this winter just know how to froze a man’s heart.
    Thank you for melting up some of the icy territories around my house, so my path
    is clearly open to you now.

    Lyno;
    Hello, and welcome to my House of Pain. Hope you
    like the surrounding here my friend. Perspective
    studies will follow for sure. Thank you very much for
    the encouragement.

    Devastacio;
    I will most probably try out ‘Dead Space’ , but there will be no
    updates from me for about a month or even more. Is Dead Space
    something like Resident Evil? I have played FEAR, but I do not really like
    that game. Looks phenomenal, but that was nearly not an experience like
    playing Resident Evil.
    Thank you for reviewing my latest drawings and paintings. I know,
    sometimes they are not so bright and good but, I am still just a big
    beginner and this is my training grounds. So expect a lot of failures from
    my side. I really appreciate the effort that you invest for me to improve.
    ‘The beast tamer is an exotic character’ – you said that nice, and we are
    thinking exactly the same way.
    About your ‘one week head drawing’ suggestion – I will try to draw some
    heads, but I also need to do some other studies, so it will surely be a mixed
    up version. Thank you for the suggestion however.
    Just as I said in your sketchbook, do not rush into some things.
    Take care, we will surely talk more later.

    Bethany;
    Hello, thank you for your advices. I think that the purple smoke could led
    to his head, but I have some more deeper plan’s with this painting, so
    you will see. Maybe. Thank you for your constant support, you know
    how much I appreciate that.

    equilerex;
    Happy that you like the portrait. Not much time was put into it but
    it’s still look nice, and it was a great exercise. About the pants, believe
    it or not, but the last one is actually totally desaturated, and the interesting
    thing is that it looks like it is colored. Try it, save the picture and color
    pick the pants in some photo editing software, you will realize that it is
    completely desaturated. Thank you very much for the advices and
    for the support.

    Kiwi;
    Chorus of adoring friends, wiiiiiiiii
    I am so happy that I have so many friends, it would be real nice if we
    could do a big party and have some great fun. You are the one who thinks about
    my creativity, oh thank you I appreciate that, do not worry I hope that I will not
    lose it. My mind is crazy forever. Thank you for everything and say hello to that
    little fella Kiwi from me.

    shiNIN;
    Hello again, I told you that I will not let you go out of my sight. The pants cause
    disturbance, you are right haha, I just could give him a little cute pink one, or just
    let his lower half to be naked, with his hairy king-kong. Chain will get some highlights
    thank you for the advice. Did you get the beer that I have mailed to you?

    Fallenangel;
    Anatomy studies on their way, I study anatomy on a weekly basis. And I
    am also planning to draw some gestures, most probably I will not upload
    those but I will surely do them. Thank you for the words of encouragement
    and for your support.

    Kungfoowiz;
    Hello, thank you for visiting and for posting.
    I think that it is time for you to update also.

    maeshanne;
    Hello and welcome. Actually you should thank to
    alexson for that skin painting tutorial.
    Thank you for the visit and for leaving a comment.

    Quigleyer;
    Nice to see you again my friend.
    I will keep up with the face studies also, thank you for
    you visit and for the words of encouragement.
    Will visit your house pretty soon.

    McClain;
    Environments; I would like to do those, but I just never to get enough
    time for it. I have to admit that the mission sounds tempting, but man, it
    is just hard to start beside all my other plans and studies. I know about
    Bob Ross, I have all his painting video collection. RIP Bob Ross.
    Thank you for the kind words and for the encouragement.

    Silwynar;
    Will try to do longer face and head studies beside these time limited
    ones. I just need more time. Thank you for your reply, hope you are
    enjoying your oil painting studies. Surely much more useful than playing
    WOW.

    Hello every1
    Hope that I found you all in good health. Wish to thank you all for
    visiting my sketchbook and for viewing my art and reading my comments
    behind them. Around 20 replies since my last update. I am astonished.
    I just have no words. I will visit the sketchbook of each and every one,
    sooner or later. I will surely return the favor even more than once.
    Thanks everyone.

    Oh my god. What have I done...?
    You know I was surprised pretty much myself It would be oh so easy if I always would be that motivated. And that was a "not consensual collaboration" where you did the much bigger part. My strokes changed it a lot but they seemed so minimal when I turned off the base layer... And a black canvas doesn't motivate me near as much as your drawing did... the start is the hardest for me and now I skipped that part
    It was among my first attempts using a pressure sensitive big hard brush intensively. And it had a deep impact on me.
    I wish I could draw like that any time but something changed inside me. And now I totally want to draw portraits - even more than before!
    Thanks

    Hm... Profile sheets use side and front view, for portraits 3/4 view is better. But of course, it would be boring (and harder) to use it every time. that wasn't my critic, just I think you shouldn't have criticized devastatio's _anatomy study_ because it was in front view. But too many words were written regarding this little thing already.

    or just let his lower half to be naked, with his hairy king-kong.
    It's a nice idea as well, please put some nice piercing on it if you deciden on that option Nice = what fits him and your taste. It doesn't necessarily to be a totally modest one

    Did you get the beer that I have mailed to you?
    Do you mean the package without any information about the sender - who was able to squeeze a tiny but pretty deep red rose bud with impressive surviving skills into it? I knew it was you. You really needn't to try so hard, I will be around forever, or at least till you keep this thread alive. I'm a hedonist who tend to do things that are good for her, that's why.

    Nice eyes. With your usual messy render (I mean you have no normal hatching technique - I don't have it either, I usually shade with not sharp pencil, it's so much quicker though not necessarily better but I'm a lazy one
    But you have some nice details even it's not so totally clear.
    And you should watch your irises, they have to be round in front view and even a slight deformation looks odd.
    You tend to draw irises too big... and a "double pupil". The whole pupil should be black.
    Oh and the light part of the iris is in the opposite of the highlight spot.

    You favor a tonal way of drawing. You should do some sketching at twilight, trees against the sky or buildings against the sky. It'll teach you about silohuette, how to make your whites look like an expanse of light, and how to make your darks come forward or recede, and many other wonders.

    Hey plissk, good to see you still at this, though how you get anything done with all this writing is beyond me.

    I would have you do more studies though. Pointed studies to get a better grip on lighting and anatomy

    NickyBeats;
    Thank you very much. Glad that you like the drawing and the painting.

    Bethany;
    Thank you for your detailed review of my pencil eye drawings. When I did
    these studies, one simple thing happened, I shut my mind off, I was just purely
    eyeballing and copying those drawings from the book. I was absolutely not
    thinking about anything, nor the shadows, nor the iris or the pupil, so I guess
    that explains in short so much mistakes. The pupils should be absolutely in
    the center, now I know that for sure. Wrong placement of the eyebrows, I also
    get that. Contrast, I could do more of that, but I was already putting to much
    pressure on my poor pencils, so I guess I just could not go more darker with
    the pupils. Bottom line, I have learned a thing or two about eyes, while doing
    these drawings. Thanks to you and your help I got even more out of those studies,
    than I was hoping for.

    shiNIN;
    So your weak spot is starting the painting, laying down the basics, but you are
    doing fine after painting the details in. We will find some solution for your problem, for
    example, I will do the igniting sketches and paintings and you will be doing the
    finishing steps on them. We will work in synergy. I have no idea what is a pressure
    sensitive brush, cause I just grab what I got and I paint. I never liked to play with
    the pressure sensitivity, plus I think that my poor cheap pen does not support some
    pressure sensitivity settings. Well anyway, I am glad that I have motivated you to do
    some portraits your self.
    Hatching technique? huh I forgot about that. I was just working purely instinctively.
    Those eye drawings were totally not detailed but I am glad if you like them. You and
    Bethany analyzed those drawing perfectly, so I guess that I can say that those drawings
    went through the sushi machine. ‘Light part of the iris is on the opposite of the highlight
    spot’ – will try to remember that.
    Thank you for helping me all the time to get better.
    Yes, the beer and the flower was from me, I am happy that you like the present.

    Teapo;
    You think that they are exquisite? wiiii, I am happy. Thank you.

    armando;
    Hello and welcome. I am honored for such an experienced member to post on
    my drawings. ‘To make my whites look like an expanse of light’ – I do not really
    understand that but I will try to do some sketches of trees and buildings against the
    sky, that is if I will have the chance for that. Does that have to be a live study, or
    I can do a photo study?
    Thank you very much for your support and for viewing my drawings and paintings.

    Kungfoowiz;
    Glad that you like them budy. Thank you.

    oma;
    Gore, violence and sex has been delayed a bit. Not cancelled, just delayed.
    Thank you for your support.

    Michael Jackson also had a strange feeling that someone was watching him.
    And look what happened to him now....

    ladyknowles;
    Hello, thank’s, you just make my motivation to grow.

    Mischeviouslittleelf;
    Hello, I am so glad to see you again, help of a such great artist as you are
    will surely help me much in my improvements.
    Well, I just watched the people around me, here where I live and I saw that they
    are spending a tremendous amount of time on facebook and some chatting systems,
    so I am, instead of doing those things I am using that time for concepart, to write
    messages and to draw or digital paint. I also quitted playing any games lately.
    My full concentration is on art. Day and night I am thinking about my drawings
    and about my ideas that I have in my head.
    Thank you very much for your visit. If you would have some time, you could
    give me some specific tutorials or paintings to do?


    Thank you everyone for supporting me.

    Wow, the new portrait is much better than the previous one, I so totally don't feel the "let's show the boy how one should do that" urge so I won't overpaint this one (if anyone read and happened not to get it: I know my face drawing skills are just starting to bloom ) The neck seems to be a bit thin/undecided though.

    Smoke and fire! I love smoke and fire... I can't draw them either Tricky elements. I can imagine your suffer, I experienced something similar when I wished to draw some mammatus clouds for you for some reason.
    I'm sure one need bigger brushes, scratches aren't smokey, but it's just one little thing... I will try to draw something like this soon. Or lava. I love lava.
    {oh the almost forgotten lost souls... I totally keep my promises, I'm just... slow. And new ideas attract me more. And fire is tricky. But they will come when you don't even dare to hope in them.}

    No boob? I should draw some then.

    Wait Plissken!
    This isnt a damned brush!
    This brushe achives everything you need to get one of the great masters of the univers!

    Ok, no joking now.
    I really suggest to just try out different brush settings, like ONLY opacity to pen pressure, only brush size, ...
    This already makes this "boring" brush to a naked dancing lady!

    Your heads and portrait is looking really good. There is great improvement over the time.
    Four your portrait i would suggest to make a different dark in the background because the hairs are having the same color as the background and thats really a shame!

    Keep it up my friend!

    PS: Look at my sketchbook icon! I just made one of these imba animated super dupa ones! ;D

    Thumbs up

    Hey there,

    I missed one update yeah? so ill reply to them both, in this post. I took a good break and now back for more arts.

    Update # 778:

    I will most probably try out ‘Dead Space’ , but there will be no
    updates from me for about a month or even more.
    if this is the case : Dont play Dead Space it sucks! i was wrong! *evil grin* i would rather play 'super mario' or 'minesweeper'. Now go draw some good stuff, its much better. :p

    About the eyes; Bethany did a superb review and theres nothing much for me to add here. as she mentioned; be really careful with the size and the position of the pupil. Also, you need some details to the Iris to make it believable. Problem with drawing eyes is, you need to shade them properly to make it look believable. My suggestion to you is buy some fashion/hairstyle mags as they have lots loads of references. I did my eye study using an old hairstyle mag. it really helps to keep all the tiny details in your mind and apply it to your drawing from imagination.

    About the wolf eye painting; I think you nailed most of the tiny details here mate. My only addition would be to make some strong highlights on the rim of the bottom eyelid. but this is a proper good job mate!

    Anyways, thanks for mentioning the books mate. will try to get them later when i get to painting.

    Update # 789:

    Now this is a superb update. I see you started drawing some interesting heads.Nice expressions and variety too. only thing you need to do is be more careful with the proportions. this youll be able to do with more and more practice. i think you have seen enough in my sb; man! those wonky faces!
    but you are ding way better than me so be proud. This doesn't mean you can sit on your a*s and do nothing for a week. so just keep coming my friend

    The imaginary armor pieces; i always enjoy these stuff so heres a *high five* from me. the extreme perspectives are super cool. you usually do them really well. my only suggestion here would be to use more contrast between dark/light because most of these stuff are made out of metal.

    The digital painting from the movie 'Spider'; great job here. way way better than the last time. His left jaw(small portion of the neck too) is swelled. looks like he got a small punch from Mel Gibson. but its a very small thing. probably unnoticeable. keep doing these. you'll do better with each new one you do.

    About the smoke painting;

    Damn smoke ruined my evening, tried to use only the
    default brush, totally went wrong, I
    just cannot achieve the effect that I desired
    with this f*cking worthless brush
    WRONG WRONG! its looks damn cool to me. well most of the artists dont want to see realistic smoke( or other atmospheric effects) in digital paintings. if we want to see such realistic stuff we could take a good look at a real photo yeah? we would like to see something artistic, and i think you did it well, at least for a start. i know nothing about digital painting but, I think what you are lacking here is some crispy strokes. Anyways i have seen artists painting smoke effects just with the default brushes. just dont forget to change the brush settings and add more sharp details too. ill try to find some good tutorials for this. ill be making and update today and ill pass my findings across to you, at that time.


    Well, overall, great update. This is what i would like to see and makes me happy. So let me buy a drink for you.

    there is gigantic difference between your penicl and digital stuff. this old lady looks great! She merges a bit with the background. Thats ok when you whant to put specific element out of focus, but in this case she should popup form the background. Somke stuff looks ok, exept the fire, I thing that this fire is burning at too high a pressure? It looks a bit like a flame that you see in a gas cooker. It seems to me that at this point of combustion, tongues of fire should have a more organic shape. Anyways you are doing great work with those updates, keep posting I try not to miss any more , cheers

    I've been passing by your sketchbook over and over for the last couple of days and trying to think of something to say that hasn't been said over and over already. So...

    The thing that strikes me about your artwork (and yourself for that matter) is that you are sincere. Passionate too, but sincere in what you draw. The emotion imbedded in all of your work is real, although it might not have a purpose all the time, and that is downright exciting. I'm not really sure what purpose telling you that has, but its a feeling I get everytime I visit.

    You're making tracks my dear. Keep hiking.

    Hey Plissken, stopping by to make sure you're doing well. For whatever reason my subscription thing in my control panel didn't inform me of your last update, so I didn't know you were still updating. I'll have to check that out!

    Painting with the default brush is probably the best way to get better at painting, though. When painting in photoshop that's really the only brush that I can use (often with shape dynamics jacked up for size, also). Don't focus on rushing through your painting, but layer your shapes opaquely. Big shapes to little shapes, general to specific, etc. etc. The more solid shapes you get into your painting before blending the more form you'll build (SOLID SHAPES YEAH!). I know you probably know all of this, but once again- the reminder is for both of us. Fucking love the learning experience man, keep killing it.

    I'm looking to collaborate with some people on something, if you're interested in doing sketch exchanges or something please hit me up. We could create worlds!

    Holy shit, It's been some time since I posted here; and I have to admit that you have made a lot of improvement all this time. That breast study from last year was both tragic and titillating; and that jab at facebook kinda reminds me of some of Ralph Bakshi's movies, and some early Newgrounds cartoons (Namely Goldilocks by Em Kaah). Keep kicking ass man!

    Your getting some amazing advice in here man, and well deserved too, I've seen you giving a lot to this community lately.

    Digitalis are getting so much better, but careful to watch your edges tho, sometimes there are to many soft edges, so some contrast would help define form.

    So pleased to see the traditional sketches too, keep those coming!

    Cheers bro,
    matt

    i like that right smoke a bit more.. tho it can use some softer edges on the hard highlights.

    its like the clouds im painting now with oils.. they totally new for me. just look at some good refference photos'.. study them.. look at them.. become them.. taste them.. eat them.. smell them.. have sex with it..

    its not something u will master fast or directly.. just make more of them with the same brush and u will see u will progress fast and eventually master them.. just behold u patience.. and have sex with clouds!! that would do the thrik..

    Cheers for the Post Rob.

    very nice updates indeed.
    Good work on that last portrait of still spider. She looks very old and worried about death to me.
    The armor designs are motivating. And I would say more, but i dont want to swallow your time. Because I am pretty good at swallowing. wait...

    Your faces are improving, whilst the eyes still need a bit of work the noses, mouths and overal proportions of the faces are definently getting there.

    Keep up the good work mate!

    cool update! i like the armor sketches a lot.
    as for the fire, default brush can be a bitch i guess... adjusting the flow and opacity helps a bit but not that much i guess. I think the image is missing some more orange / more light since the heart of the fire seems pretty intense with all the white yet the surroundings are rather dim.

    keep it up and get that new update out soon!

    Really dig the portrait and the armor designs,
    and as for the smoke, just try doing a photo study
    of smoke I guess; it's hard to make smoke right at first but
    just keep practicing and you'll have it down in no time.
    Nice variety of heads; just keep practicing with planes, eyes, noses, etc.

    Good work!
