    I tried both the dark grey lines and the colored lines and the dark grey just worked better.
    Thanks again for the great suggestions, it is really helpful to have someone else's eyes look at something.

    Other than lightening the lines, I just did some minor fixes on things that were bugging me.
    I think that this will most likely be the finished piece, but any critiques or suggestions would still be very helpful!

    Mini Post!

    I was trying out what I have learned about bones by doing some studies!

    I'm pretty happy with what I have learned to be able to apply from what I now know!

    I am surprised that learning about the shoulderblade has helped my understanding of the upperbody so much..

    I know that there should be more, but I am a lazy bum..

    I also know that I am putting off those drapery studies that I promised Blauringkraken...
    I will make sure to do those soonish.. soonish......

    Hey, hey! Some more good stuff since I last checked, and your way about going things sounds pretty good to me.

    Anyways, no crits I'm afraid, just keep it up.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    Hey Greyskill! Two weeks without updates, what's up?
    Are you working at a bigger project or just hiding in drapery? :D
    Keep it up, I'd love to see more!

    Heyya and thanks for the post, I didn't realize it had been that long..
    I have been doing a bit of both...
    I realized that while doing anatomy studies I have completely forgotten to keep practicing rendering and pencil use...
    Other than that, I have been pretty busy.
    It was my birthday last week, and then I went away for the weekend.


    Here is some stuff.. Not much, but I don't have anymore. Just got to start making more now!

    All from observation, except the sphere. All from life, except the key and the woman with a dress...

    No problem ^^ Good start for drapery! Two things I want to practice for myself, which I recommend you, too: Try to get clear lines. Don't scribble around in your final versions, it makes the hole picture muddy, try to stay clear with especially the lines which define the form. Second thing: I don't know what pencil you used or if it's the photo, but: I wouldn't use a hard pencil. I myself found out, I work best with 2B or something, it gives you a better range of light/dark. In the ball above you used this very well. So, keep that up, I think you are definately on the right way!

    Yeah, I think that I used a hard pencil.. I have been trying to experiment with different pencils so that I can get a feel for range. Thanks for the tips, I will try them out next time.


    Here is the start of a sketch I am doing of a photo of scissors.
    I am trying really hard to get the proportions and structure down as accurately as possible.
    It takes a long time to draw something accurately, even something this simple...
    It isn't as messy as it looks here in real life.
    It is actually very clean, this was just a bad scan..

    Nice values on the sphere in the previous post. As a crit for the little red riding hood picture I think her hood is too saturated and too red for the mushroom-lighting and environment. The light source from the mushrooms is a ghostly blue but it doesn't affect her clothes (or the environment) at all. The color change would be a lot more dramatic in lighting like that - the color of the light affects the color of everything it hits - and in this case it seems that the mushrooms are the only obvious light source. Overall also, the lighting seems to come from nowhere. Why is the middle of the path lit? Is there light coming from above?

    But yeah, keep going, nice stuff so far.

    Thanks for the post! Yeah, I see what you mean about the light.
    It is true, there should be a lot more blue light on her, and I really have no clue why the path is lit.
    I guess when I was working on it I was just concentrating on making things read well.
    I picked the forest's color palette by inversing Red's colors so that she would really pop out..
    I really appreciate the critique, I really have very little idea how to show colored light in a painting,
    any more tips on that or any other subject would be greatly appreciated!


    Here is another scan of the scissors I am working on. I got the structure and proportions to a place that I was happy with,
    and now I am attempting to fill it in with smooth and relatively correct tonal values.

    Any crits or pointers would be really helpful!

    Would it be good or helpful for me to post the picture I am doing the drawing from?

    I'm not sure if it is just because of the scan, but I think, you can use much darker values for the scissor. You showed that you are able to use a wide range of values in the drawings of the key and the sphere. Try to repeat that. But it is a good start already!

    I think it's just the scan. The pictures usually look wrong when scanned but adjusting the curves in photoshop works as first-aid. Making it look like the original might require some tinkering, though.

    Yep, it is very light still, but that is because I am trying to slowly work the values darker.
    I have a tendency to go really dark really quickly, then it is hard to correct that.
    So instead, I decided to get the values to be relatively accurate and then work them darker as I went along! Thanks for the comment and stuff! =)

    -raminafshari
    Thanks sir! Working on that!


    Here is some digital stuff I did as an exercise in brush making yesterday after my post.

    The anatomy went to heck on this one.. The arms are all screwed up...

    Ignore the arm, I really like that girl above. Nice brushes btw, I need to focus on that, too (but first I want to know everything about the defaults :D). And value studies would be good I think (as raminafshari said). Keep it up, sir!

    Thanks sir, I'm glad you like her! I really like making new brushes and trying them out, It is fun.
    I would really like to do more digital work like the first one in my last post, but it is so much harder without a tablet..

    Ok, what kind of value study do both of you mean?
    Should I just study values from life? pictures?
    I am just not sure what you guys mean..


    Here is another step on the scissors. I did the blades, shadows, and darkened the handles.
    The whole thing could still stand some darkening.

    Heyya, huge post... Makes me wish that the batch uploader was finished and running....
    Mostly 30 and 60 second gestures. Some other things like 10 min studies and facial feature studies are mixed in there too..

    I guess I didn't try very hard to post... Anyhoo, here is a post before I go..
    I am leaving for a week, should have some stuff when I get back..

    Here are some gestures from imagination first, then some from reference,
    and then some reffed faces..

    I don't understand how to approach portraits,
    I can't seem to find that balance that a drawing needs to have a
    semblance with the subject of the drawing...
    The drawings end up looking okay for the most part, but they don't look like they should
    This gets pretty frustrating...

    Your bw CGs have style! The latest one is very cool too. Seems like brushing around is fun.
    But I like the drawings with the brown felt tip (?) in post # 143 too. There's something nice about those thick lines. They fit to your sketching style.

    for the figure drawings it would be good, if you learn more about constructive anatomy. That would make them better if you can use some 3 dimensional forms to develop them

    portraits are driving me nuts too = = they seem okay when done from photographs
    but when it gets to a real person...somehow...
    yeah : P so I've been staring at ramdom ppl these days
    you can try it too!
    keep up the good work!

    -Valyavande Yay, I have style! Thanks, yeah brushing is fun, and it is the easiest way for me to paint with a mouse!
    Luckily a wacom is coming in the mail for me, so excited!
    Yeah I liked using the felt tip calligraphy pen. I liked being able to push line weight a lot!

    About the anatomy, I'll be sure to get right on that! Thanks so much for the post, its very helpful!


    -vivi Thanks!
    Yeah, I just can't seem to figure out what actually makes a person look like they do..
    Am I just not drawing the features accurately enough?
    Heh, yeah, I stare at people too and sometimes I feel like people must think I'm a creep.. lol, better to stare at people you know I guess..


    Here is my entry into this weeks CHOW, Warrior Alice..
    Not as gritty or dark as it should be to match to brief, but whatever, I had fun..

    Hey, mate! You may not know it but I've been lurking for your last few updates.
    I just can't think of what to say since you're working pretty hard.

    So, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, just keep up the good work. xD

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    Cheers

    Hey man, saw your chow entry and thought I'd pop in for a closer look. I love the style of it and I love her demure pose. Your other work is looking cool as well, I particularly like that you're trying out lots of different techniques and styles, and your pencil work is coming along great! That first ballerina a few posts back is particularly lovely.

    Take it easy

    -Naidy Thanks! Glad to have some lurkers!

    -danlambert Thank you very much for the post! I'm so glad you liked my Chow entry!


    Hey, been about a week since my last post, but I have something new to show.
    I've been doing other stuff, but some is too lame to show, and other stuff I can't show...

    I FINALLY got a new wacom tablet! I have been loving using it soo much..

    It is a 6x8, smaller than my last one but I actually like the size better in some ways. Also, it is a usb intuos 1..

    I did this really late for this weeks Chow, Dreamweaver..
    Not done yet, but I will get some more work in before submission tomorrow..

    This has been a good exercise in wacom sketching!
