an observation picture going off my normal sketches
its my hand
Great stuff! Particularly like the mixed render technique of the first one. It would be lovely to see the confidence of line you display in the hand drawing come through in the second one? Some thick gestural lines would give a nice kick to its dymanism.
thanks for all the appreciation! ill be up with 4 more soon.

More studies studies studies! Keep it up!
hey some cool stuff goinf on ehere man......im likin ur charcter concepts
try goin even darker on some of your shading to give it a more dramatic effect.....i should practice what i preach.....but really cool stuff dude keep it up
LIFE kepping me MOTIVATED
here's my first attempt at a fully done photoshop picture
Good start - you are on your way!
Something to try might be to build your entire painting at the same time - stay zoomed out and don't get too focused on one spot. Paint in the silhouette, define the volume with a slightly brighter value and just keep adding lights and darks while moving all over your image until you are done.
Also - everyone does this - the round brush is a bit fuzzy. Try as a default painting brush Opacity (set to brush pressure) 100%, Flow 50%, Firmness 90%. If I am lazy and want to use one brush I just use this one.
You're an inspiration to me man. Thanks.
I am finishing one or two 3d art projects at the minute but when I finish them I will be getting back into concept art. I love it more than anything.
Keep drawing, then when your done draw some more haha. You should check out Andrew Loomis how to draw books they are awesome! Keep it up. I should be updating my sketchbook regularly also.
great stuff so far, your sketching is very good, I like the guy in the first post, I can't wait to see the finished product. Also the Batman is awesome too. Keep up the good work.
i want to thanks everyone for all the support, i'm back on this site and now i'm gonna post some studies, people please leave some tips and goals i should reach thanks alot everyone!
Oh man I'm excited to see what you have to post. I suck in comparison to you!
Really like your start - you think about composition and dynamics, it seems, and that is almost as important as the technique, in my opinion. No good drawing only upright dummies that couldn't lift their own leg, let alone be action heroes.
Just keep practicing, at this point, and experiment with looser painting techniques, to make it quicker and more expressive to capture your ideas.
That bataman painting is pretty great! For the graphite ones before it though, I highly recommend not smudging! The shadows may look really soft and gradual, but you learn a lot more by making a value scale and shading along the planes kinda like this: http://what-i-do-is-secret.deviantar...lanes-70223871 Except with more values.
man its been like two years! i feel like a loser for not have posting in so much time, however, i have been drawing, here's a drawing from about a year ago.
heres a bit more of my work, I'm going to academy of the arts university so I'm going to practice more until I can freelance. All of your suggestions help tremendously so please feel free to leave a comment.
the last picture by the way is an undone study, I'm just doing them daily for an hour or two so each day i only complete it to a degree
heres some more!
oh wait! theres more!
