Thread: SaintAsh's Sketchbook
September 9th, 2009 #1
I'm trying to push my work with watercolor and graphite to a new level, so what better way than to practice daily? Feedback and critique of any kind is most welcome.

So far, I don't see what needs to be improved upon. I love your watercolor stuff, though.

I appreciate the willfull-ness to really attempt to push watercolors, it seems like recently people have been setting it aside as "old" or "boring" mearly personal observations from my specific area though, not a world view lol Keep it up !
Sketch back if you'd like...

Boo! -- Thanks for looking.
Icedearth15876 and FightingSeraph -- Psh, there's always room for improvement. Thanks for looking!
adammelo -- Unfortunately, that's an attitude I've run across; for whatever reason, some people think watercolor equates to a little old lady hobby. Go figure.
I love using the color blue, probably too much. Gotta move past that.
A quick experiment with letting colors pool together.

Pushing myself to use some dry brush technique. Pose is referenced from Sarah Simblet's Anatomy for the Artist. Also, that FUCKING EAR. Argh.
The scanner butchered this, to a point; the rest was me. I was gunning for something more subtle than my usual globs of color, but I'm not happy with this. The background needs more changes in value. Also, next time I post, I'm going to have to show some hand sketches just to prove I'm not afraid of drawing them.
I like to warm up before painting any figurework with an abstract.

Keeviin -- Thanks for looking.
Hands, as promised:
I need to study the joints of the fingers more; some of these are dangerously close to tube-territory.
I've always been fascinated with shapeshifters and their connection with their skin, from the idea of a selkie slipping free of its entire skin to a more half and half, Navajo skinwalker deal. I don't like this sketch, but I see promise in it. Will probably poke at it more later.
My Achilles' heel: clothing. I'm dipping my toes into the pool in the easiest way possible: a hat, so there's still a lot of anatomy to work on. I used a direct reference here, some random photo on the 'net.
I was not in a good mood when I painted this. In case you couldn't tell.
Experimenting with laying down some initial, heavy washes and then pulling out a figure.
