    I totally needed them clean. The perspective was so hard to see before.

    Black Spot
    They have a ways to go yet before im happy. This level would be good. This one is a more realistic aim for now.
    The simple shapes I would say multiply like building blocks.
    I must have drawn a couple thousand cubes or so by now.

    Thanks mate. I try and explain what I think at the time.

    jedininjaman
    Thankyou.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Really been quite busy with driving lessons this past 3 weeks. Stressful and time draining.
    It almost puts my day off if I hafto drive and think about it. But a lot of people say I
    should be ready for the test later this week.

    So just a small rework of the bike is all that's completed for the moment.
    The color before I think was causing problems. Its a bit artificial looking. Pink seems
    particularly off.
    Moved the shapes around so the picture is more representable. My life drawing teacher liked it.
    Obviously the work with anatomy is not very good. We agreed some of the studies are too close to a photo.
    This is after I changed to a much closer to home drawing class.
    The old one was at the same distant location as the old workplace which was the problem.

    And the start of a painting of a jet. I think It will work as a mostly matte rendering.
    Trying to decide on the environment and shapes from those thumbnails. Should it be energetic
    and bustling or calm and menacing? Battle damaged, or well maintained?
    Perspective and a simple (painted over) model is coming from rhino3d.

    Of those 2 links I think you're half way between them. Don't forget you draw people and birds as well. As to well maintained or not, you need to decide what you want to draw. Either would be fine.

    I havent shown it, but there is a fair lot of bird sketches and attempted improvements in the last month or 2. But I'm not satisfied with the results.
    The anatomy, usually forced.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Continuing with the A-10. Went with well maintained. I hope this is on the right track. The rendering of form and detail should multiply things here. Including mistakes.

    i'm glad to find you're still going crazy with the studies, that plasma cutter from page twelve rocks dude and i have to sayhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_Space_2 is the best game i've played this year so great to know you're a fan as well. the landscapes look good and your life drawings have really improved. dude the cars are fantastic, stunning rendering on those two in post #340 and the ARV in post #350 is crazy good, also the packaging for your salt & pepper shakers is so realistic, i had to take a second look at it just to make sure. love the progress on the bike, keep posting

    @Velocity Kendall

    Agreed. There is not a lot more I think I could do to make it work in real life
    without a full size mockup of somesort...
    The seat is well, go kart size. I think originally it would look mad if his head was at the top of the bike originally but...
    big blind spots in front. Kanedas' bike was made in real life and it had similar issues.
    Many replicas made it so the seat was bumped up and you could see over the windshield.
    Way back near the beginning there may be an overlay of a person seated. They likely need their arms bent a bit
    for leverage. I would say the posture seems different for a bike than the image there. More active.
    Just before he jumps off and purchases life insurance and full safety gear.


    @miycko
    Wow, that page goes for a months! Think it came out february/ march. That bit near the end of the game
    with the needle was insane. No real scares for me and so surprised it got through censorship here...
    Haven't seen you in a while miycko! Looks like your internet is the same so I will forgive you for the double post.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Some more studies. The audubon copy should help with the currawong problems
    rendering feathers and flowers. I think it was the opacity making it look fuzzy.
    I might get the a10 finished in a future post but a lot to do right now. Really overwhelming.
    Much of my time was spent researching and buying a car though. Thats the 'time' and
    the 'carry paper and canvas' problem solved. Totally going to use the
    McDonalds drive-through asap! Isn't that what everyone does when they get their car.

    It could be the lamp. Makes the strong cast shadow . Thinking of filtering it a bit. Pictures
    of cameras in advertsing they dont put the shadow there or anything else in the scene. Always really simple.
    Haha, oh it was fun driving through. Just out of curiosity of all these years. My diet is not good
    as it is to go regular. I was too cautious with the car to really bask in the maccas moment. Have the money ready and look at the menu before you go through!

    Thanks lav

    Interesting you say that, the birds are from america and the artist is from france.
    Could be the use of flowers and watercolor.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Revisiting the monaro for some form practice. Vital to have different photo angles or blueprints of the panels to not make anything up.
    The angle of lighting is supposed to be the same as the original -however it's overcast there.
    Pretty much on my own apart from the spaces. Whats the bet I could make it reflective.

    Apologies to everyone who looked and didnt see the image for the last post.
    I'm not sure what happened. Internets being a little unpredictable my end for
    the past month. Sometimes pages will stop loading halfway through.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Anyway, The reflections are really hard right now and Im not 100% sure why... but I would say
    the car is a bit too much for a study. So going to leave this one here for
    a bit...
    The new life drawing class has more variety of models. I dont remember all of the drawings, but I think...
    I tried the chalk pastels as the conte(like chalk pastels, but more binder.) pencils had a sharp point
    and was taking long to get values and coverage happening. The drawings are not quite in order. I may have sized them here a bit small...
    The A10 is mostly working for me.
    The self portrait -I dont know. I hope next year goes better. I'm think I am so disorganised.

    The copies are from 'ImagineFX presents 'How to draw anatomy' specifically, Ron Lemen. 2010

    the monaro looks real good, nice construction and rendering there dude looks like the link to where the original photo of the vehicle was has different content now. your life drawings show good progress anatomy wise so keep at it with those. OMG i missed international self portrait day once again... i should remember to join you next year as i've never really done a serious self portrait. really good values in that last post, keep them coming

    @miycko. Hmm, odd, It redirects from the link from the picture. Look. I'll edit the link out... It's easy to find in google images.
    Search 'Holden Monaro'. Its one of the well known pictures.
    Thanks mate, life drawing starts again february but barely a scrap since those.
    November 1st for Sp day 2012, put it in your calendar.

    @Black Spot
    There is something roman about the sp isnt there. Maybe dropping the view to chest level did something...

    @Wheeljack18
    High five!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Soooo... I Had an idea for doing some more box art after being on holiday. Originally the idea for 6 months was to
    do a Tamiya style R/c monster truck kombi... Then it appeared in early production early december when
    looking for Reference.

    Scratching that the world probably doesn't need another. Made a resurrection a few weeks ago
    on a Caterham seven model from 2008 or so. It may need some work simplifying to turn it to a radio control version.
    But I think there may be an idea in scale looking caterham R/c cars.

    I love you work man! Your drafts for that bike are amazing, reminds me a bit of AKIRA. What program do you use to render your models? Again, Great work!

    A radio controlled car sounds fun. Could stick a hamster in as the driver - with goggles.

    Hey mate, used rhino3d and vray, keyshot. Then with a loose background plate, (sometimes) get the perspective and go from there painting. Akira is one of my favourites animiated movies.

    Lav
    I think the industrial things there is more interest. I usually dont think much of the human drawings.

    Black Spot
    Dont want to hurt the poor creature.

    miycko
    Caterham gets all the credit for the car, I just gotta pull it off making it Rc and an illustration. we'll see.

    GoGoJojo
    I think a lot of people missed it, spread the word! Yes the models are often lit below. not sure why.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Big troubles with the painting reflections still, I'm not sure to jump into the rc further or not like this. Could easily render a pretty accurate pass in rhino. But I think the idea is to see them in my head early rather than have the render dictate the way it may go... the computer's pretty powerful. I wonder if tamiya traces photos for things like wheels.

    The portrait is one of three from the portrait workshop. I saw the other 2, an hour after doing them, and they didnt look any good to put up.
    The still life is some of the car parts, tools. The car is no batmobile... but I'm nearly obsessive compulsive about it being maintained or detailing like it came from the factory. I dont know a lot of how engines work or interested in improving horsepower. The maintanence manual is as far as I've read up on things.

    Dumping that portrait workshop picture in there - does it look like the guy? What was wrong with the others? I like getting the likeness of model even if in rough and it all comes down to proportions. Faces are never static, even with a good model, and catching that likeness can through several stages of ugliness, but if the proportions are right, you will always win in the end. Bit like your life drawing further up - don't treat it any different.

    I don't really have a lot to critique, Black Spot already said what I was thinking. But hey, you should do a portrait of your car some time! then you could do a portrait IN a work shop.

    Dunno about the other drawings, haven't dug them back out to look. I can just tell half a day later they seem messed up...
    or when i go to scan them or take photos. It wasnt quite the picture in my head, or something is way off (proportion, tone
    or other) when I flip it or look from a distance.
    I get a little idea from the response of other students how well I did, how long they look at it, if they say something its
    usually alright.- and the teacher. I dont usually get much time to do another.

    GoGoJojo
    Hey, maybe, I mean most of the time I just drive to work in the car, its not really like the batmobile or something not
    seen before. Nice for me, and satisfied with it and like it shiny and the shape is cute. But I wouldn't say that interesting,
    uncommon or worthy of a painting to me really.

    miycko
    Thanks mate

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This isn't everything in the past 6 months. I cannot find my camera to take pictures of the life drawings. There is a form study
    I'm gonna think about a bit more aswell. I didn't do any paintings or other drawings, and my arm feels like jelly when I use
    the tablet. A bit like if I didnt skateboard for a few months. not too motivated...

    Having typed that, there's this caterham radio control car thingy. It could have taken much less time if I didnt make a
    chassis, but I couldn't resist! It was a monster. I just love modelling some days...
    Sorry about the damage!

    i know the feeling dude, it's not easy to pick up the pencil when you don't feel "driven", looking at the work of artists who inspire you sometimes helps jolt a creative spark so i'd say that's worth a try. Also updating your sketchbook can do wonders even if it's old work so find that camera so we can have a look at those life drawings i knew the radio control car would be WIKED! and you have sure did't disappoint. it's amazing the way you draw all the detailed vehicle mechanics, i wouldn't know where to begin - it like to see your process, and the rendering is totally steller, very nicely done get inspired dude, can't wait to see moar of your awesome work

    DRAW UNTILL IT HURTS
    AND THEN DRAW SOME MORE
