    r-t-a's sketchbook

    My struggle to be better, to learn, to retain and to maintain. Will update in batches usually.

    Here's some sort fairly recent still life stuff. Still trying to feel comfortable and confident with digital.

    Thanks for looking.

    Some stuff scanned from my sketchbook. Good news is that, since scanning and editing the pages was so time consuming, I'll be updating a lot more regularly.

    I like your face studies, especially the digitally painted noses The monk (? not sure, looks like a master study?) is quite awesome too. Keep it up

    'dating.

    First, a study that I decided no to waste any more time on and call finished.

    Another study that's taken way too long and its problems take ages to resolve. And I've not even started the hair. Pain.

    Some studies and a few imagined heads.

    Had a sudden bout of confidence to try this out. Of course the anatomy has ways to go, and that neck; but it read, and I think I learned something. Who knew. If anything, this opens up the path to do some more studies of features. Onwards.

    Crits welcome.


    Anyone have experience with the http://www.artweaver.de/ program? I'm interested to hear thoughts on how it stacks up against something like Painter. All I've learned about digital I've done through Artweaver, but I'm moving to Painter very soon. Coming from Artweaver, will I have to spend months and months trying to get accustomed to Painter's seemingly endless array of tools and functions?

    A small update on the digital front. Value studies and some heads from imagination. I jump back between digital and traditional a but most of my studies and drawing are in in my sketchbook. Scanning's a hassle for me. Will get round to it.

    Some studies and a WIP imagined head. I want to spend a lot of time on the head, because I've tried this so many times and ended up being incredibly disappointed with the outcome. Crits welcome.

    Nice stuff man! If I can make a suggestion; I think your values are pretty dull right now, some darker darks and lighter lights would make the images pop out more. Do some studies of black and white photos etc. I have this same problem with my stuff!
    Keep up the good work man!

    Update. Studies, stuff from head. Trying to get into environment stuff, so will be doing a lot more landscapes.

    alexson: Thanks for the tips. My thinking is that black and white studies are definitely the way to go when it comes to studying values. Will also try and push the contrast in future pieces.
