    A doodle a day...

    Hi people. I've lurked around CA for a fair bit and I'm finally gonna start posting. Hooray.

    I graduated from a design course, specialized in animation and came out of school realizing I was much more fond of drawing and conceptualizing things rather than animating.

    I like to draw animals and beasties and while my human drawings aren't so great, I'm still working on them. Colour bewilders me so I'm trying to get the hang of a colour sense and a painting style before I blind people with my colour choices. My backgrounds are kinda non existent so I need to work on that too. I've been considering going back to school but they're really expensive and the government grants only cover roughly a year and half of schooling.

    Um. Yeah. Here goes.

    From old sketchbook

    Did these while still in school. I don't remember where I got the ref from though... the lions are from pride of Baghda.

    Awesome

    Awesome doodles and animal drawings! Did you use references to start with or just from imagination directly?

    I started drawing animal beastie types a lot when I was a kid so I don't find myself having to use reference as much these days. Most of these were from my imagination. ^^;

    Oh I love your dragon creatures...they're quite adorable if you dont mind me saying haha C: Great stylization, you have a very appealing style which is really cool. Ah yes, learning to paint digitally is quite difficult, i can sympathise with you there, but keep at it! The more you practise the better you will become i assure you (:

    More stuff

    It's not that I don't draw, it's more like I don't scan. o.o

    Most of it is mine, some of it was referenced.

    Just two..

    How my mock up appears nicer than the so called final piece, eludes me.
    This set upset me from beginning to end and I sat there frowning at it for a good few hours. I must have looked odd.

    ... I like my new square brush.

    Argh. They're getting simpler and simpler. Never mind. There's an alaskan and african and desert scene I've still yet to do. Hopefully I won't be short tempered over them.

    Did this for fun and practice, heavily referenced from the UP posters.

    post #15 and #20 are getting really good. You've improved a lot so quickly! I love the life and character in your sketches, and the elephant in #15 has got to be one of the coolest elephants I've seen ever.

    The third dimension

    Nice stuff. I really like the animal studies!

    (Next, I'm assuming you'd like people to give critique. If not, please ignore it.)

    The jellyfish mock-up is nicer to me because its vague edges suggest at least some depth, while the final piece is totally flat. So, considering the paintings, and perhaps in general: there's an absence of depth in what you've shown so far.

    Drawing flat is not wrong or anything, and the hard-edge flat painting style is nice, but my guess is that depth is your weak spot.

    Can you take one of your creatures and show the planes it consists of – not only the lines – and shade them so it gives a strong 3D impression?

    My sketchbook contains cartoon studies and Pokémon.

    Busy at work, scribbled this out between stuff. Might splash some colour onto it when I'm more free.

    bleah

    One done on sketchbook pro and another on photoshop. One messy and one clean. Not entirely done. I like sketchbook pro much more than photoshop but the colours seem easier to use on photoshop. Um. I desperately need to learn how to paint properly. Could anyone throw me painting tutorials which worked for you? I get so lost sometimes with the books and tuts I find. o_o
