    @ Luckers: You should really do more studies and sketches, you suck. And your nickname sucks as well.

    Aaanyway, I had an assignment for school to do something with the famous sketches of Goya. But to be honest I had no clue and no inspiration to do something with them. So I just started hoping that inspiration would come. I tried to give two of his sketches a cinematic feel.

    I Don't really like them, wich brings me to the next point. As I have said before, my old tablet doesn't work with my current macbook. So I will have to buy a new one (a Wacom this time). My previous trust tablet might be really bad and cheap, but it is a a4 sized tablet, so I'm grown rather used to that.

    Question time: What size of tablet do you have, and is it enough for you? what would you advice me to buy?



    Here is the work. Warning: I did not make the sketches, they are Goya's.

    On the previous page, the guys feet feel too small to me. Keep up the studies and work and you will become awesome.

    I don't know much about using tablets, but I do know Wacom supports Macbooks. I have one myself and I'm 100% sure the Intuos 3 or 4 works greats with them. I've used the small sized Intuos 4 and it works jut fine in size to me. However, if you use really broad strokes the medium size one would work best. The large sized wacom is way too big and you will never need anything that expensive.

    @ Loper42: I actually tried to get across how unbalanced a bodybuilders body looks like, but maybe I overdid it a bit. And thank you for the words about the tablet. I have decided to buy a intuos 4 M. Can't wait to use a tablet again

    Heres a little test I did, I made the textures myself. It was rather fun to do

    great sketchbook you have here. I particularly like your more traditional works in ink just becuase its something I've always been curious to try and you are good at them!

    That acrylic painting on page 7 is also really nice.

    I hope that art school is going well too.. hopefully one day I will be able to afford something like that myself after a few years working. May I ask, what are your thoughts on it? Are you learning more/less than you thought you would and is there a good atmosphere?

    Btw your linework in the last couple of pages seems to have taken a big step up in technical ability so well done for the hard work.

    @ ThomasM: Thank you for the kind words (commented in your SB for your question)

    @ Aveh: No problem, but don't call your work crap. I'm glad those pieces achieved the creepyness I was looking for

    Got my new wacom yesterday... Fuck, it's bloody amazing!
    Makes me realize how crappy my old tablet is. I haven't done anything with a tablet in a few months.
    So I'm still getting used to it. Here are two fast sketches with it.

    Really intense studies, good job on that! Keep it up.
    When doing quick portraits like the one you recently posted. Try not to use so much opacity on the brush cause it usually end up very mushy. I've recently realized that by using a very hard edge brush and by just blocking in value/color is a lot better. Everything ends up having pretty hard edges though, but it looks way better than the smudgy stuff and if you end up wanting to spend more time on it, you could always fix the edges easier that way.

    I hope that helps in some way D:

    Bye!

    @ Metal Fingers: Haha, yeah it's jim you win! I got a intuos 4 wireless (so thats a medium). I'm actually really happy with the size, since its the same size as my laptop, so they fit in the same bag

    @ Witcrack: He does indeede look like val kilmer! I suppose that's because of the wide nose And thank you for the kind words

    @ Loathsome: Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate that you took some time to write some helful critique I'll try to keep that in mind for my next portrait. But I do have to say that I'm not a realy fan of the layered low opacity brush look. So I suppose I have been avoiding it. But I'll see how it goes!

    @ Insanelight: Thanks for the reply, glad you like it

    Unfortunately, I've got some bad news.. I accidentily knocked over a cup of coffee on my laptop.. It got over half the keyboard... I suppose the damage isnt that bad, but it's still pretty fucked up.. Got me in a bad mood.

    Here are past weeks sketches wich I didnt get around to scanning sooner.

    Hey Luckers, long time no see,

    I really enjoyed looking at your progress and seeing all the experiments that you do. I think you have really grown in your work the last few months.
    I do have the feeling though that you need to focus more if you want to grow even more/faster. Are you at school still? Are you thinking about going to art uni?
    Well first of all I think it would be a good idea to start working on a subject that really interests you and that you are passionate about. It will be hard to get there, so you may start with one thing and it will develop into another thing, but in the end you are going to get to a certain place where you feel the need to keep working on a special subject for some time. Not for ever of course. I can see the fascination in industrial smoke in a colourful sky, and cloud images and so on, And I wouldn't stop making pictures of them, but the images alone doesn't stand on their own for me. You need to go deeper, ask yourself and your surroundings questions. What are you trying to really show with these images? Thousands of others are doing the exact same thing at this moment, so you need to find your own special voice. I know its hard, but I say you need to start trying.
    I will be back and if you have any more questions write to me or visit my sketchbook. I know this is a sketchbook and we put up everything we do in here, even if it hasn't got an idea behind it, but I just thought it would be important to make you think more about your stuff.

    Cheers,
    janos

    @ Witcrack: Thank you, and no I have not. But maybe I should

    @ Lang Oulk: Yeah, foals are awesome! And thank you for the compliments

    @ Janos: Whoaw... thank you for taking time to write that janos. It certainly woke me up a bit. I mean, you are completely right. Though, I am currently in the first year of art uni. So I have mainly been busy with experiencing lots of new things. Wich I think has done lots of good things for me as well. But I'm going to take your quote and put it in my critique document. It will keep my mind on track. Thank you.


    Here is a painting I did the last 3 days. I tried to take a bit of the impressionistic art stream. And translate it into this.

    Alright, this is a bit awkward, seeing how I left you alone for a while.. And now I'm supposed to have this great come-back speech about how much I missed you and everything..? Well, I just have to say life isn't the same without you Conceptart.org... *grins*

    Anyway, it feels like I haven't been on CA for a year, while in fact it has " only" been about three months. It's not like I haven't done anything In the meanwhile, though. (and I'll tell what I have been doing like anyone cares) I have just started on my third quarter at my art school. I have barely posted any work from last quarter, so I'll have a bit of catching up to do on my post. I havent done enough concept art in the past half year, CG art in general really. I'm hoping to get back on that this quarter a bit more.
    (I'm also hoping to catch up on all the art I've missed out on while I was gone!)

    So to break the ice, here are 2 paintings I did last period.

    A wall painting I did with a friend from my class, his name is Lobo. We unfortunately only had 3 days time to do it, but it was a lot of fun to do! And I learned a lot from it.

    Thanks for the kind words and stopping by Thomasm, I appreciate it!

    Here are photos of a sort of exhibition of my work of the trimester, my teachers attend to it, and base their judgement on the work and my study attitude.

    Jealous of that room you painted! I wish I could paint on the walls of my apartment. Wow I looked through all of your pages and the landscapes are breathtaking! Your people drawing have developed really well into your own style! no crits today but keep coming back!
