    The composition seems me strange but I like much the graphic aspect.

    T.a.i.v.a.s 's sketchbook
    Alew's sketchbook
    Walid's sketchbook

    ( If I don't speak quite English, you can correct me ! )
    I look for a mentor !

    You've got some nice stuff in here man ! it seems like the faces are you're weak point for the moment, I think you should do some portrait drawing with some pencil and paper, take some ref and draw draw draw !

    T.a.i.v.a.s: Thanks! If you rotate the image 90º the composition will make more sense. I rotated it like that as an experiment.

    Mark Tarrisse: Thanks! And you're right. That's one of my weakest points at the moment (among others). I know I should start drawing more humans and faces, hands etc. But sometimes lazyness gets the best of me

    maria riaz: Heya maria, glad to know you're still around Thanks for the comment!


    So here's some more quick stuff.
    The last one was following ref religiously. On the one before that, I used ref, but didn't follow it completely.

    Dig the African image and the Jawas on the biker scout cycle thing ( can you tell I have seen Star Wars)

    The latest female seems a bit wider than she was supposed to be.... not sure if that was your intent.

    lukart: anytime, thanks!

    liquidjack: ahah wasnt thinking of Star Wars at all when I did it... actually I dunno what the heck I was thinking lol. But now that you mention it, it does look a bit star wars
    Also, you're right about the gal, she's wrong. But I think that the real problem is the size of the head, which is too small compared to the rest of the body! I'll have to get back to it and make it bigger, atleast.

    Thanks!

    Ben: Thanks! I actually haven't been timing myself, but I believe the first 2 were around 15\30 mins, and the last 2 a bit more.

    Colt: Thanks! Yes I'm actually trying to get a bit away from sci-fi, to try and be more fresh, and to be honest I always thought other subject matters were lacking in my work. So now I'll try to be a bit more balanced.

    Holland; towy; Maria: Thank you all! Don't be shy to bring crits though, I eat that for lunch

    Well, no art tonight for good reason I believe. I've been a bit busy watching and "studying" Gnomon's Master classes. Is being well worth the money, and having a chance to hear Craig Mullin's ideas has been an eye opener on some aspects for me.

    First, because he touched and shared opinions on some things that I've allways thought about and struggled if I should go with the masses mentality, or my own. I'm happy to know that his opinions and mine are very similar.
    Second, he actually has a way of thinking and working, that to be honest I never expected, but that now make sense after hearing his reasons.

    So I'm trying to take his lessons to heart. And I've been painting, failing alot (which is needed), succeeding a bit. I'll post some results next week, or perhaps sooner.
    From now on I'll take my time with my personal work, and save the super rush 30mins speeds for any production work I might do. I believe I've already learnt a lot of technical tricks, to be able to give myself that luxury.

    Sorry about all this philosophy "dump", you certainly don't come here to read any of that, but I needed to vent something out of my system, and this time not with a brush

    The insect mech in 146 is very well done, I immediately thought of some fucked up spider underbelly or something similar. Terrifying.

    Unlike a lot of stuff, I am getting more information from the vagueness of these concepts than perhaps a more pronounced idea. Good job!

    Poor Boriz, has to eat maggots and dead people, lol.
    Hey Morgado, I really like your style of painting, and the colors that you use.
    Its very organic and complimentary, or maybe I should say earthy colors. I'm
    diggin your sketchbook. Great stuff. I bet its fun as hell to
    make up environments and paint them. Perspective is my next goal
    after anatomy. I've got a ways to go realistically, but I'm slowly
    working at it. Keep up your painting and drawing. You're doing awesome!

    The two pages have a lot of good preliminary drawings laid down. You should really take some time to push some of those drawings too a higher/deeper level of development. Take a break from just doing speed-paintings, they could turn into patterns that prohibit your growth as an artist.

    Keep going ...because there ain't no finish line!

    Heya folks! Been very busy lately, but also painting and drawing alot.... so basically I have just been lazy to post here

    towy: yes, many roads lead to rome

    jedininjaman: thanks for commenting! I think I need much much work to gt color really harmonious though. That and experimenting more palettes

    Ben: don't give me excuses, otherwise this will turn more into a philosophy sketchbook instead of painting But glad you found value on those words

    My57: Thank you!

    Smoke: Must confess I discarded that sketch right after I did it, for aesthetic reasons. But yes, there may be some value to it in terms of narrative and composition... another one for the "awaiting revisit" folder Thanks for stopping by!

    cout<mecha: thanks man, thats what I try to aim for! Long road ahead though
    And how are those psycho animations coming along?

    danlucas: Thanks, glad you like it! And yes its very fun to develop stuff from your head (except ofc the usual headaches getting everything right )!
    Keep mind Boriz was not my work. He was done by Ricardo Robles
    Also regarding what you said about being in the process of studying anatomy and later you are going to move on to perspective. Might I suggest trying both at the same time? You'd be amazed of how one can help the understanding of the other!

    Akira: Thanks!

    Peetaer & Lateman: I reply to you both on the same line, because what you said is related. I can see where you both come from with those remarks, and trust me I have them close in my heart (in a manner of speaking eheh).
    Yes I do many many many speeds\sketches. The reason is simple: I believe its in the sketch pahse that you learn 99% of the craft - proportion, colors, values, etc etc. The rest is just making it "pretty". So only a matter of time.
    I developed some pieces further in the past. It was indeed a good exercise. And you can bet I'll do it again (in fact, I'm doing it at the moment to 2 images).

    All this blah blah for one reason, and this is more a general remark: I get the impression that around here (not only CA but online art communities in general), people value the ultra realistic and uberly worked look. Thats all fair and well, and the uberly worked image has its importance. But I think that the sketch is getting less and less attention and importance as a side effect. More and more I see people who advance to a final, without having a solid base (sketch) beneath it, and solve problems on the fly. And when I say "solid" in a sketch I mean have everything the final would have: forms, value, color, accuracy. I don't think I'm good in this, quite the contrary. That's why I prefer doing 100 "solid" sketches per 1 final image.

    And of course there's also the matter that the industry (and consequently the masses) shows a preference to more "photo-real" works. But thats another discussion alltogether

    Don't take it by this long rant that I'm discarding your crits, quite the contrary, I thought about them very long before replying, formed an opinion, and ultimately posted it. I'd like to hear yours, coz I like keeping discussions going

    Right'o the following are some studies I did recently, all photo-ref (since around here its almost impossible to get live models). I'll post some imagination stuff later.
    And yes I should draw more males as well (before you say anything, I'll spare your keyboard )

    Agree with the above!!! Great new sketches and don't be upset with those who try to draw fotorealistic, cause I do. Well, because I can't do no better. I always envy those people who can draw a great picture with those loose brush strokes.

    I did try several times, but always looked like spaghetti with tomato sauce, lol!!!


    Keep up good work!!!

    I totally agree with you Morgado on the sketch thing. I think it is where you learn the basics. Just keep it up man you are doing great. And your more finished piece also prove your point
