    Power Doodles - Nicky S's Sketchbook

    Welcome to my sketchbook,

    I'm Nicky, an animation student from Belgium.
    I've been lurking around Conceptart.org for almost 2 years. For the past 6 months I've been working more seriously on improving my digital painting skills and I'd like to keep it up.
    With summer vacation kickin' in I'll have a lot more free time to spend on improving my drawing and painting skills.

    Here's some recent work I've made.

    I'll try to update every day. ^^

    Welcome to CA! Hopefully you'll be posting often like you'd like to, and I hope so too! Because I'm liking what I'm seeing, and I'd like to see where you go.
    What I am admiring the most is your sense of proportion and anatomy. The only crit I could give you is to go into some darker values, and maybe define things more, but that could totally be a style you're working out right now, so in that case just keep drawing!

    good start on this SB. of course you can start experiment with more interesting brushes! Your paintings are nice, but I suggest working on skin tone. You seem to use only one color with different value.. Study a photo of a face, and discover the huge variety!

    ohnojenny - Thanks, yeah I need to work on my values, every time I think I did them well, I look back and notice that I need to go more extreme with them. I need to do mooore studies.

    eparts - Thanks, custom brushes confuse me most of the time 'cause I don't know how to use them, I guess it's just a matter of experimenting and discovering what works for me. I'm going to do some face studies, and work on my knowledge of color.


    Here's another update.

    The first five pages are some sketches I did during the past couple of weeks.
    On the sixt page are warminging up doodles I did yesterday.
    Also a bunch of quick thumbnails, some nose studies, a sketch of a house, and warming up sketches I did this morning.


    I'm really excited on painting, starting this sketchbook is an extra motivation to learn more each day.

    These are some great pages, Nicky S. I love how they're all so full -- just what you like to see in a sketchbook!
    Great facial features/human body studies/sketches! And great job getting variation in faces -- SO much variation! You're crossing the species borders.
    I'd like to see some more environment works -- I like what I see!

    HerrleerzeichenS - Thanks man, I still need to work on getting clean lines and crosshattching... But with animation I'm used to do linedrawings, most of the time we don't get to the shading part. ^^ I'm gonna try to keep up this workrate.

    ohnojenny - Thnx, I still need to work on my sketchiness though, need to watch out for messy lines. Oooh and environmental work... hehe. I'll work on it. ^^


    Eye studies I did yesterday, a facial study, sketches and mouth studies I did today. I'm not gonna have a lot of time tomorrow for drawing and painting, but I'm going to try.^^

    Awesome eye and mouth studies! I like how you're getting into the fine details of things. It inspires me to do the same. :3 Who knows how soon I'll get to actually doing it, but...
    And I really like the painting of the girl. The colors are awesome.
    Keep up the good work! Try some enviros or some speed paints.

    ohnojenny - Thank you, they help me in a kinda strange way, I did them before going to bed, first thing I think about when I wake up is eye shapes, and mouth shapes. (I probably even dreamt about it :s) ^^
    Today I noticed that a good way to practice colors is to do studies with a hard round brush, without activating the pressure sensitivity. It forces you to make an accurate color choice from the start, it makes me think more about colors. ^^

    Another update, gonna do some studies later.

    2 Landscape studies, with hard round brush, no pressure sensitivity.
    And some thumbnails, messed a bit around with a custom brush.

    You are bold, aren't you? Going at things with a hard round brush. The enviros look fantastic, especially the second one! What would be interesting is if you went back in with a fine pen and drew things in detail, like trees or the tiles on the roofing.
    Keep up the awesome work! And your crits are always so valued on my sketchbook, so thank you so much!

    Nice mix of studies and imagination in your work.
    The anatomy feels fairly solid, but your proportions are virtually all slightly 'cartoony' - eg: a large head and small body. This is fine if your doing it on purpose (like I think many of the images are), but it's also creeping into a few of the pics that would benefit from more realistic proportions.

    Still, some fun stuff, waiting to see more.

    ohnojenny - Hehe, one of these days I'm gonna try a more detailed one. No problem, I love helping out!

    SEVANS - Thanks man, since I need to do cartoony stuff for school as an animation student, the cartoony proportions reflect in my other work. I don't really mind it, but I'm gonna study on realism so that I have a better understanding of things so I can make more "accurate" cartoon drawings.
    Neh, or I'll just learn to draw and paint in a realistic style.^^ (that's the ultimate goal)


    Here's another update, some sketches, Loomis studies and some landscape color studies. (without pressure sensitivity)

    Amazing post! I love all the anatomy studies, and the perspective study... aaaahhhhhhh it's all too much! Really, it's such a loaded post. And great environments again! I really... have nothing to crit. Damn.
