    Blu Dragons Sketchbook

    Hey! After viewing this forum for a couple of months, I finally decided (and had the guts) to post some of my sketches.
    Im always looking to improve and learn new things, currently in a 3D program, I always thought that traditional art would aid and help alot in the digital area.

    Anyways, heres some old digital paintings I did a while back of faces and people

    Hey there! Good start to your SB, I am especially liking the caricatures (mainly the bald fella third from last). But a lot of them are getting that blurry, smudgy look. Make sure to use harder brushes and avoid the smudge tool if you are using it. Good start though, I really would like to see more

    hey thanks! And yea now that you mention it, they do look alot blurry, I guess you can say its the brush i used, the standard one (Am really new to the digital painting and havnt touched on the brushes as yet)
    But ill be sure to experiment!

    Nice start! I want to see more!

    You can get rid of the blurriness if you go into the brush tip shape options and set the hardness to 100%. That should help with the blurriness. Those faces look pretty good so far, though. Faces are tough but you seem to have a pretty good grasp on how all the features are put together, which is something I still struggle with.
    Got a couple minutes? Help me improve!

    hey thanks! Faces are always something I love to draw and study the different features. And thanks for that tip, Ill keep that in mind

    Heres a couple from my sketchbook, some are pure studies, and the rest I was just messing around with. Hmm...my scanner seems to be a bit to faint when scanning these drawings, I guess I would have to adjust the levels in photoshop for next time.

    Crits are always welcome!
    More to come

    Heres a few rough poses for my character originally posted above. Hes a super fan/nerd of Thor and lives for/dreams of/does everything in his will to mimic his super hero idol

    these are really rough, original poses were takin from a class and we had to put our character into those poses.

    your drawings are good but initial faces looks flat, they lack solidity of form. i like your gestures most. keep it up.
