    Sorry I'm not as active as I want to be, I'm in school and what not, so it's hard to find the time to up stuff.

    But I'll try to be more active.

    I've got a painting or two to upload tomorrow, and I'll also be updating with daily drawings, whenever I can.

    Started school, pretty great teachers overall. Though my Drawing class is only once every Sunday, but I still have 9 hours of free time, so I can draw whenever I want during those times, so any excuse I make of not drawing is just me being plain lazy.

    My first attempt at painting, and a bunch of gestures and studies from my Life Drawing and Portrait Drawing/painting class.

    Another day of school done, today we went to the muscular structure of the human head, which I think I'm having a lot more trouble than with the bone structure. Though the anatomy test should help a lot, as I gotta study on each part, draw them separately, and memorize em.

    Live Models on Wednesday.

    Congrats on getting back into drawing and sorting yourself out physically.
    You seem to be doing everything right, starting off with strong foundations like life drawing, anatomy, colour and traditional media will do wonders for your progress. Same with the different styles you have going on with the looser gestural poses alongside the longer still-life studies. They are so important and so often overlooked. SO yeah, keep it up, and when your feeling more confident, I look forward to seeing some of your personal work.

    Peace
    Dan

    I think I bit more than I can chew. Hair is where I stopped, I attempted it, but no dice, but I'm happy with the result.

    Reference color study, approx 2.5 hours.

    hey good result for a first digital!
    Hmm its hard to give this a crit.. i dont know how you started your painting
    I can tell you what i always do.. ( i dont paint so much digital .. should change that** )
    I first sketch it up,, untill i have a little likeness, then block in the colors. like rly rly rough..
    ** i btw always try to pick a photo that has a good light/dark situation **
    Then.. even you only blocked it in it is already getting shape.
    Once you did that , just start refining and it pops out quite well
    especially from distance (^^,)

    But again for a first try here,, this a great result!
    Keep it up man! ur doing great!

    Welcome to the SSG!! I agree with Brewin, try to work on your line quality. That digital painting is a really good start. Keep at it and you'll get good in no time.

    Good job man!

    I think you should focus more on the values first before jumping into hues,
    so next time I want to see you copy a grayscaled photo - put it on the same canvas and do a 1 to 1 copy (and post the ref!).

    Trying to find some cast models to do digital from. Having hard time finding some haha.

    Anyways, approx 1.3 hours spent on this, went pretty quickly, flipped the image and what not, I still gotta figure out how to sight measure digitally haha.

    If noone posts by the time I scan/upload todays sketches/studies, I'll edit this post and add em in.

    As you can see, my traditional portraits look nowhere near as good as my digital. But this is to be expected as I can't constantly erase over and over on a traditional one. Which is why I'm learning to get it done accurately more often.

    its good to see you try to rly catch/feel the form,, but try not to overdo it..
    It could help sometimes but its also good to rly try and feel it without putting the line down. Dont know if its makeing any sence at all! Good stuff anyway man! Keep it up!

    scribble less! theres just too many lines.

    On that grayscaled piece:
    You have to show us the ref so we can see if you see all the value range in the pic. As of now I see highlights missing and some softening needed, but it might be the original photo, so we can't really tell...

    Keep at it and pick a picture with some soft value transition for next time (esp on skin).

    I disagree with the scribbling, it's giving your sketches a lot of movement, not to mention form.
    Keep up the good work man

    Not much of an update, I need a camera to take pictures of my newsprint, but tomorrow I'll be doing some anatomy studies, and a few self portraits in my sketchbook.





    Also started on my first painting for painting class, will upload that tomorrow.

    Hey man good stuff, good stuff - you're improving.

    See if you can do this one (the one on the left, ignore the pic on the right), but this time focus on making it soft where it needs to be.

    if i where you i wouldnt focus as much on rendering before i get the construction right.
    The skull isnt long enough i think, on the pic he also has a larger chin and an ear

    But again, good improvement here, so keep working hard!
    Good luck!

    I'll update as soon as I can find a camera. My bookbag was stolen, something stupid I done on my end, but my laptop, camera, old wacom tablet, and more stuff was inside.

    I did however get an intuos 4, and I'm trying to see if I can get a computer off of someone. But the main focus is getting a camera, I'm still drawing, I just can't update.
