    God, I really need to update this more. But everything's so old and crappy; I almost hate to bump it. Oh well. Here's a random sketch.

    edit: adding a bunch more old stuff.

    surus: Thanks very much. I'll try to find some pencils worth posting; I have a boatload, but they're all like anatomy studies and stuff. Who wants to look at the same old Bammes studies for the millionth time, I don't even know.

    A wip I'm messing around with:

    Hey pa(h)l, how are you? You should post more work. But who am I to criticize you. I'm not better . I like the last two digitals. Good value control but I'd like to see some new faces on your characters. But I'm no better here as well ^^

    Love the stuff you have going on here, but the major problem with your characters is that you seem to get way too carried away with the details thereby loosing the 'I am a whole' look of your guys. They fall apart into bits that way, so try to get all the lovely detail stuck back together by giving it a shared shading/lighting, i.e. make sure it flows and the tone matches across the figure.

    Great work, so keep it up,

    Best wishes,

    Ana

    I think that everyone here has already covered most of the advice that I'm qualified to give so I'll just say "what they said" and "do more!"

    There's some -very- nice stuff in this sketchbook, keep it up!

    Edit: I'm going to put a thread in the jobs section, and upload the pics here so I can use img tags there. So some of these are reposts.

    Hey man I am astonished by the way you paint and draw.Could I ask what tablet have u got and could you make a screenshot of your brush preset settings you have.Thank you!
    I am really interested to know your brush presets,coz sometimes when I paint my paintings look a bit smudged and with lost edge kind of thing. I usually paint on 75 to 100 opacity and flow but that happens some times. Your paintings are easy to read,not smudged and all of them are with nice crisp,sharp edge.BTW Nice values as well

    Featheredface: Thanks very much.

    ShadowSnake_67: Gosh, thanks. My tablet is a Wacom Intuous 3, 6x8, and I'm mostly just using the default PS brushes at 100% opacity and flow. Sometimes I'll turn the flow down if I want finer control of the brush, but I rarely bother.

    If you're having issues with smudgy edges, I'd guess it's probably less to do with brushes and technique and more to do with just a simple lack of structure; a drawing problem, in other words, like 90% of the rest of painting issues. If you have a rock-solid conception of the form you're painting, the brush you use to paint it barely matters; if you don't, no brush will help.

    I ran into the same problem with my stuff, and I struggled with it until I came across some great advice from Craig Mullins on Sijun - that is, to work out your painting opaquely, and nail down the major forms with an opaque brush first, before going back in and noodling with transparent glazes and softening what edges require it. This forces you to figure out the structure of what you're painting, and exposes any drawing weaknesses that otherwise might have been hidden. It's a brutal way to work, but it will definitely cure smudgyness.

    The default PS chalk brushes are good for this, or the default hard round with size jitter set to pen pressure and all opacity and flow jitter turned off. That's pretty much all I use, plus the soft round to make soft edges where I want them, and the occasional texture brush.

    But I uploaded my brush set, if you want to see exactly what my settings are: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UL2JESAU


    thebluepuppy: Thanks a ton!


    Here's an environment sketch. I've been doing a lot of research on matte painting lately; it's such a cool genre of art; I'd really like to get better at it.

    edit - and a quick photo study that I forgot

    Fantastic artwork! Do you work in the concept-art field (or planning to do it)?
    I've seen most of your stuff before, on Bay 12 Forums. (You are Balathustrius. It's you, right?)

    Here's some character illustrations I did for a game called Fallen Thrones a couple months back. I'd link to it, but it looks like it's been discontinued. I hope that's temporary, because it looked cool, and the devs were a lot of fun to work with.

    Amazing work. I'm particularly jealous of your lighting.
