The skulls are great! school project, or personal piece? I'm liking them vibes =)
Your figure sketches are a bit shaky, but line control mostly comes through practice, practice, practice =) that said, your proportions are getting better, try integrating them with your digital work, and you'll see grreat success
P.s. I'd second Callops- sb next meet man, and +1 for the Happy Tree Friends ref! XD
cheers badger! im starting to read alot more recently. gona do some work on some children s stories soon as possible! also was awesome meeting with you too man!
thanks callops! lol yeh i defiantly bring a better sketchbook next time xD.
ha nice konna! i wouldnt know, i ant played it
thanks aberzheim! the skulls are a personal projects. im currently a gap year so just doing loads of different stuff really. :/ ive been doing some loomis stuff recently but yeh totally agree gona have to motor through the anatomy stuff! oh happy tree friends are the best xD
some studies i posted in the crimsondaggers thread a few days ago. been trying to get better at environments alot atm. some other stuff too
Awesome digi-still lifes here. The green 'Happy Tree Friend' is a winner. If you don't mind me asking, what course are you studying? I see you're situated in London and I recognise that V&A statue on the previous page
Keep it up, I should really find an opportunity to update my sketchbook >_<. Example well set
thanks man! not on a course atm. tried to get into uni this year and failed :/ trying to get in now so will see for next year . and the v&a is awesome. :3
been running around too much over the last week. just been drawing where ever i ended up xD. i managed to be apart of an awesome illustration exhibition tho over the weekend. i cant wait for new year!
from the enviros I see that you need more still lifes - put those on your daily schedule, it pays off greatly.
moleskin sketches look great, you have good lines but watch the perspective.
on the sp, bring out the hues more and watch the values more closely.
i love your painterly style. your strokes seem confident, your color picking with your life studies appear accurate, and your portraits just unfinished enough to leave to the imagination and be interesting.
i really love what you have so far here. You've got some serious potential that's just ready to explode. Keep it up and let the pro in you out of its cage.
thanks Vatsel! i'll keep that stuff in mind
cheers a la bapsi. i'll try
ok new year. new stuff. went to see the turner and the masters in the tate the other day. that was awesome so been studying some turners trying to understand how they work. apart from that need to finish all the written stuff i got to do and get back to some projects
Dude this shit's getting ridiculous. Crazy good stuff here!
I like the toned down colors in that self p (the one with the headphones).
Edit: I also faved the piece of your grandmother on your DA. Really touching stuff man.

Very impressive sketchbook. Your life studies are getting better every post, and your self portraits here and in the other thread are amazing. May I ask what kind of brushes you usually use for your digital work?
thanks osau! yeh sure, in photoshop i normally use a slightly edited version of the basic round brush. the main thing to change is the spacing to 10%. also for painter i like using artists oils wet brush alot.
more life stuff
yo motha fuckaaaaa
sick work love the moleskine work.
keep it up
Alex!!! How's things going? Your sketches are looking great, same goes for the life drawings. Love the desktop studies, HellBoy!!!

hi koto! nice to hear from you man. yeh things ant been going bad. just applying for uni and hoping to get somewhere this time . i went to the v&a a few weeks ago on a friday hoped to see you and everyone there but i went on a day when everyone was meeting somewhere else. lol my fault for not checking the forum to see what was happening. gona go V&a this friday. just not sure when im gona get there. depends if i'm sleeping at home on thursday night. also hell boy is awesome!!
train studies and a self portrait.
self portraits are progressing each time! and i find that the more i do the quicker the next portrait is! do some facial expressions or make yourself a character from your favorite comic. ;] play around, have fun! it's what art is all about!
also, nice sketches. get bold, get confident, and make those sketches count. look at what your sketching more than measure all the time. the proportions will come in time, but really see what you are drawing!! :]
Awesome! hope to you see you tomorrow . I'll be around V&A around 3-4ish, might do some street sketching beforehand. Do you want to grab my number?
What Uni and course are you applying for? I was thinking of doing a course at Prince's school. You still attending that?

thanks matt might play around with my selfportraits abit soon. wana do more expressions soon.
thanks alex lol btw u rarely get people noticing. just got for people reading or that are really zoned out my advice. also im on the train alot so i might as well use that time for something.
hi Koto!!!!!! oh great yeh i will pm you my number soon as. also i get u a booklet with all the course at princes next time im there. should be tommorw morning. oh but something i didnt say to you earlier i can only speak for the one class i take there. dont know how else the others are. mine is very self taught with the lectures just let u get on and study mainly with hour to 3hour poses atm. has been different before.
ok last week was my birthday week. with both mine and my gf birthdays in the same week. so that was mental and with trying to get some of my projects done for interview just had know time. lol but as of from tommorw i should be alot more free to work on everything i need . heres a mix of stuff
Your lines are looking really good, and your figures / self portraits are improving a lot. You're inspiring me to do more self portraits myself; do you think that doing the daily self portraits has helped you to improve a lot? I'm curious about doing them myself.
yeh jeremy trying it. i think its helped alot in quite a few areas for me. only mainly problem i found by doing them is that you have to keep drawing other faces other wise everything you will draw from you memory will look like you:/
apart from that its been alot of fun to do.
some more life drawing stuff. most of these seem really rushed and crappy. might start showing other stuff from studies soon. :/
