    those screen caps are lookin nice man. just watch out for those edges; try sharpening some a little more. and for colors, mine werent so great until a while ago. what really helped me was photo duplications with full sunlight. so far all the ones youve done are diffuse light, which is much more subtle and hard to distinguish differences in hue and saturation. stick with some fully lit ones for a while and youll do just fine

    lancer_idenoure: THANK YOU SO MUCH! I did a study following your advice on direct sunlight and I definitely learned way more than from my other studies. Maybe one day I will get to understand colour after all.

    OmertA: Thanks Jamie!

    Parsakoira: Thank you!

    Alrighty, here are a couple things. First a quick painting from my imagination (really restricted values, can't decide if I like it like this or not). I am actually somewhat pleased with the result, I have been doing MMA studies and a few after Ixius and I think they are paying off. Even though all the studies were done with only line I feel they helped my tonal stuff.

    And second a 1 hour screencap study of Dexter (I love that show). I am too lazy now to photograph stuff and I mostly wanted to just quickly put up something so I don't have a brand new page with no art on it. I usually update at the end of the day, but I don't know how much art I can get done today. Got some stuff to do and am going to be partying all night yo! Or at least into the evening a bit. I am kind of lame.

    Looks good! You communicated the depth-blur well in the second image

    I kind of like the restricted value range, it's mysterious and interesting! I think maybe his torso is too short though?

    HAVE FUN PARTYING!! And I'm lame too. I go to bed with the kiddies. :B

    kiwigarbage: Thanks! I think you may be right about the torso. I find I am really bad with proportions when it comes to multi limbed things.

    Here is a bunch of sketches I did. Most are from photos and some are copies of Ixius, and all the multi limbed ones are done from my imagination. I tried photographing them under artificial light just now (it is night) and then photoshopping them until they looked way better as the light was shit. They still look awful and I may need to photograph them again during the day at some point. The line quality doesn't really come across in them very well, but I am actually improving a lot with my lines.

    Oh, and my daily screencap. It is really bad, and took about 50 minutes.

    hey man, great work once again. Just a small crit, be careful that you don't sacrifice proportion when concentrating on getting the muscles right. The muscles look great just some of the general proportion looks wonky in some areas. But things are lookin real good anyway. The screen cap isn't bad, it great your tackling colour as well. Not easy, thats why im sticking to greyscale for now. Much respect. And Happy New Year!

    matty_mcmullen: Thanks for the crit! Yeah I need to focus on proportion more, especially on the multilimbs. And colour is my weakpoint so I am just going headfirst into it.

    ryanoir: Thank you! The multi limbs are fun to do. Their benefits over other studies...it allows you to practice more limbs (duh) but also how they attach to the body, whereas if you do a sheet of limb studies they are sort of detached if you know what I mean. Like it works as a whole better and how everything is connected. Plus I find that it gets me trying out different angles on the limbs. If I just draw a regular figure from my imagination I tend to repeat the same sorts of poses, but with multilimbs I am forced to put in different angles on the arms/legs and say put in more foreshortening than I ordinarily would. And on top of all that I find they just look really cool.

    Here is my screencrap (get it? haha, cuz it's crap) for today. ryanoir, matty_mcmullen and I will be updating a single thread now too dedicated just to screencap studies. You guys are free to join I believe. The rules are to try and do it daily (and in 1 hour) and to post the original so people can give critiques:
    http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=203705

    Mine from today was painted side by side so when I see it now placed above it looks like total shit as everything is misplaced or at a wrong angle (note to self, paint it with the original right above). And the colours aren't so hot either. Meh. If I do this everyday I am bound to eventually get something half decent.

    what i did today, but totally failed the study so i'm not gonna post lol, was this:
    1. open original screen that you will study into photoshop
    2. blank it out in a midtone color or something
    3. command+control+c or uh, crtl+alt+c? iono, to alter the canvas size, then make it 200% width and 200% hight
    4. then copy and paste the original image directly above where you're gonna draw (the midtone rectangle)
    5. copy and paste the original image directly NEXT TO where your'r gonna draw
    you can use rulers and what not to get it absolutley in line, but this helps how see what things are in relation to what, etc.
    i already critiqued this in the thread! feel free to post your screens in here, i'll post mine in my sb too

    Careful that you don't overemphasize angles in your screencap practices.

    Take a look at your recent one again and you'll see what I mean.

    Keep on goin!
