    Hey concept artz peoplez...

    Here is some things I've been doing lately. I don't wanna go back to massive posts lol, but I have a lot of contemplating right now. Trying to think more professionally where I want to be. I've seen so many past illustrators works that have really opened up my eyes. I'll try and update regularly still though.

    Here ya go:

    experimental watercolor self portrait- need to get better at that! my sister, some still life studies, a lot of posemaniacs gestures 10,30 and 1 mins- trying out my new approach to gestures using my brush set. I'm unto something with this one folks! and the last thing is a mock advertising illustration project we had to do for business class. As you can see, I love experimenting with the invert colors in PS.

    I'll update with some more practice sketches later.. there's too much to post right now.

    peace and God bless!

    Hey everybody!

    I'm just continuing from the last post... Some sketchbook stuff I've been doing for the month...

    and if I would recommend checking out these artists: Like I said, art history learning has really opened my eyes to many artists who I now aspire to. Here are a few of them. Please be inspired!

    1. Scott Gustafson-- http://www.greenwichworkshop.com/gus...Slideshow.html

    2. The works of William-Adolphe-Bouguereau-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William-Adolphe_Bouguereau

    3. Not really "history", but check out Nathan Fowkes who works at Dreamworks, my 'dreamworkspace' lol...-- http://nathanfowkes.blogspot.com/200...wing-demo.html

    peace out everyone!

    -An artist is not an artist unless they imagine! go out and explore!!

    Hey Andre thanks for your comment in my sketchbook. I'm actually not at an Atelier. I'm just self studying, but if I could afford to go to one I would.

    I love these updates they are all really interesting and I can see you are progressing. I recognised your Graydon Parrish study, he used to post on these forums, not sure if he still does. It's great to see you working on all areas and I think with your passion and enthusiasm you are just going to go from strength to strength. I really enjoy seeing what you've done.

    I see you are progressing nicely. That has got to be the result of hard work so well done for that. I have no crits at the moment, but I'll look for trends to change in your work after a few more pages. Good luck

    definately a big improvement from pg 1! great to see hard work paying off eh? love all the experimental stuff, like the quick gestures, silhouettes, and trying out new materials. thats great to see. one thing though, even when you do a master copy, like that unfinished Randolph Melick study, i wouldnt say copyright-your name under it. even though you are drawing it, give credit to the original artist. ive seen people get in trouble for trying to copyright studies to themselves. just saying.

    Marian Rowling- Thanks Marian! My mistake lol, I thought you were going to an Atelier. Well, keep up the self study. If you don't do it, no one will ha!

    ThomasM- Thanks Thomas! I don't know when a trend will happen, I'm just doing very basic stuff right now. Kind of abandoned digital for the moment, though it is very tempting lol. Want to get masterly fundamental skill-sets first.
    Look forward to more of your stuff!

    NickyBeats-Thanks for the enthusiasm Nicky. I'll keep that copyright in mind next time I do studies. Perhaps attributing your name and beside it put original artists name works? Still learning this stuff so...

    Ivan_kolor- Hi Ivan, thanks for looking. You said something about my tendencies for drawing low foreheads? do you mean I should draw higher foreheads? thanks for your help though.

    More process in the next post\/\/.

    Hi Concept Art. Progressing as usual I see... well, here's the hapz-

    I've been doing daily practice techniques, and I think I'm at the point where all the theoretical approach stuff feels numb to me-- you know the feeling: why am I doing this, what does this profit me kind of thing?, so I'm gonna switch stances for a while. I'm gonna start doing more life-studies. So these next two posts is all the sketchbook and imaginary stuff I've been practicing theoretically.

    After that, I'll try and stick to a more practical outcome- meaning things not too concept related; anatomy, still lifes, etc. I think I have a problem being freely imaginative. I'm going to try and just actually copy stuff straight up for a while and get out of my comfort zone, which is good! I'll see how all that theory stuff helps me on the illustrative battlefield.

    So,
    First up, is some classwork of a conceptual chest design, (final design not shown),
    -then all the theoretical explorations: you know... shapes, lines, contours, etc, understanding what makes art basically. It's abstract thinking with practical results, but imaginative. I definitely see the improvement from doing these exercises. Try them out!

    Next post soon to come.

    See you when I get there, peace!

    more...

    Here is the next post I promised... the first is classwork, and a watercolor practice, and then I think there are some gestural practices, life drawing studies, cafe sketches of people, cartoon explorations, and more theory stuff.

    Speaking about theory, I have been exploring numbers and letters in form practice, and my approach to the human figure from imagination is using the number 5 slightly tilted backwards, the bottom part is curved to fit the appearance of flesh over bones--this is only an abstract method, like using boxes for the face, but you have to experiment with it. Just wanted to share a little secret I've been using, if it matters.

    I Feel like all the crazy abstract theory needs to be put to practice on life now, so I will post some actual renderings of life studies for my upcoming posts. I'll try and stay away from my selfish imaginative sketches.

    Have a good day everyone!

    sorry I forgot...

    sorry I forgot... here is some cartoon explorations. As I mentioned before, I like exploring with inverted colors in Photo-shop.

    peace.

    Hey Andre good updates, I especially like the life studies and the cartoon ones. You've got some really good line work going on in some of them.

    some recent classwork stuff:

    The one with the environment isn't that great. I swear I did that 2 hrs before class lol. *slaps head* man, I need to get better time-management!

    I'm so not ready to be a freelance illustrator. But progress is being made I assure you lol.

    Peace y'all.

    Hi, these are not that new, but it's good for now... My line qaulity improved.

    I'm currently studying the pelvis (I believe to be the most complex bone in the human body)-- really one of the hardest things to draw. But I'll master it! haha!

    peace!!
