    hand study. i think i fig'd out how to manage the problematic tablet, i draw at 50% opacity for the outline and less opacity for various shading levels. pressure sensitivity is still a huge issue, i've set the brush mode to fade.

    Hello
    Thanks for the nice comment in my gallery.

    Judging by the few pictures I have seen so far I think that you have lots of stuff going for you.

    I especially like the sense of depht in you more polished painting.The canopy is lovely. I think that you should think about the composition a bit more though. For example the tree woman could use some more air around her. In the other painting of the woman I wonder if you painted her walking out of the picture on purpose. You tend to follow her gaze out of the painting. On the other hand it feels almost narrative like she is leaving something nice. In that case maybe you should add something more of interrest behind her.


    I am struggeling to learn how to paint digitally myself. Your lines look a bit skratchy, have you tried using a bigger brush? Remember that you can always go back and add details later. First you need to get the basic blocks of shape done.

    I´m not sure its such a good idea to not paint anything until you reworked old stuff. Sometimes its better just to remember what you learned and move on and try not to make the same mistakes gain

    wow thank you! that was some in depth critique i was badly in the need of, woohoo! i'll definitely consider your advice and also try harder to fix the jagged lines, they're mainly because of a bug between my tablet and operating system, bigger brush diameter didn't help as well but i'll find a way playing with settings and all =)

    i've subscribed to your sketchbook, can't wait to see more of your work and i'm 100% sure that with your talent and skill, you'll also create wonders in digital. hey and i'm planning to start working traditional, i used to use gouache and water painting years ago, just bought my supplies and can't wait using them yay! hehe

    hey, thanks for stopping over at my SB!
    your pieces with the women have a wonderful sense of atmosphere and light...
    I would focus (as you already are) on drawing the human figure (anatomy, etc)
    nothing beats drawing from life... if you have access to someone who will sit for you, or a local art class you could take, that will ALWAYS improve your understanding of anatmony...

    great work, keep it up!

    thank you very much josh, your comment is very encouraging and i'm honored =) yay!

    these are my quick 3B pencil doodles, i gave a try with my digi cam and shame that this is the best way they turn out when flash is turned on. those i shot w/o flash are blurry.

    Heya,

    I like the sketches, keep them going. I would suggest breaking away from the outline a little and try to add contours to your figures. This will quickly add more depth to your sketches an help you to understand what you are drawing.

    The key to good drawing, in my opinion, is to understand your subject. By that I mean instead of seeing the outline of a woman's arm you understand it's weight the underlying muscle and bone. You can almost see the back of the arm even if you are not looking at it.

    Using contours help me to sculpt the drawing out of the page.

    Keep going, you're doing great!

    Heya, you got some nice drawings and stuff in here!
    But studying would be the way to go for you now.. just to improve and get better/stronger drawings you need the knowledge you know!

    I recommend loomis and/or bridgman to update ur anatomy knowledge!

    But most important is to keep having fun innit!

    Good luck!

    Hey now, don't go belittling something you worked hard on, cut yourself some slack.

    I think you did fairly well on the hair, it reads as the hair of a statue. It does seem a bit soft however, were you using a soft or hard brush to paint this? If soft, try using the hard and see the difference.

    Keep posting!

    i want to express my most sincere gratitude to socar myles and catherine dinger for being great inspirations tho i'd need a few more lifetimes to get anywhere near their talent and skill in their craft. they both have been very helpful and encouraging on several platforms many years ago, and the urge just popped spontaneously.
