    -Spellsword95 Thanks, glad you like them! Thanks for stopping by sir!

    -kevin_ Thanks, it is nice to hear that! Glad you like the 3d stuff. I really like doing it, I should do more.

    -ANtY93 SO glad you like it, yeah I think that I should really try to flesh the world out a bit.

    -iven I will show you any watercolorish stuff that I do! =]
    I am not quite sure what videos you are talking about though. Are you talking about Agnes Cecile? If you are, you can watch all of her videos on her channel here.

    Okay, small post here, but I just felt like posting...
    Portrait sketches, they were my practice today.
    These are character class archetypes that I am designing for a potential multiplayer RPG.

    i'm really digging the 3d model and those cute 2d characters on page 7.
    these last portraits are really nice!
    i havn't practiced faces much, but here's something i found that seems interesting, and since you mentioned colour temperature
    http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.fr/200...s-of-face.html

    cool work with those thematic characters too

    Thanks! That like was really cool. I have been looking up more stuff on that as well, pretty interesting! Thanks much for stopping by! =]

    -rumpenstiltzkin
    Thanks much! Soo glad to see you back here! =]

    I should really do more 3d work. It takes a ton of time though...

    I always forget how much I like posting stuff here. I really should do it more often!
    Man, I really need to learn to recalibrate my colors in photoshop... They always look way darker once I get them online...
    EDIT: I just reuploaded the dark images....

    heya again!
    thanks for your super kind words on my sb
    yes you definitely should post here more often!
    an interesting thing i noticed is that a sketchbook page is made up for 30 replies, so if you post an update everyday then each month you get a new page (not even counting any visitor comments). so its an interesting way of marking commitment, even if not actual progress

    and yeh, monitor calibration and color profile stuff can be a pain, i havnt had issues here on CA but ive had them with web stuff sometimes.
    sometimes its because you can embed color profiles into images, but the browser might not read the profile, or it can be that the profile gets discarded when the image is saved into a jpeg, and stuff like that. got to experiment to find the actual cause

    anyway, nice update! gotta say i like the green girl with the circular design behind her head, very nice design sense in the whole picture.
    what software did you do the circular thing in?

    Thanks, good advice! Glad you like the girl. =]
    I used photoshop.
    I drew a design, made it into a custom brush, and stroked it around an elipse with the pen tool.
    I repeated this for each element. The tricky part is getting the right spacing on the custom brush.
    Then I selected the space inside the elements and colored on layers behind them. =]
    I gotta get that color profile sorted out, it is driving me nuts! XD

    Quick post with my sketches from today...
    15m and 30m

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!

    I also really like the girl with the circle behind her. The lines look more sure and completed than other pieces.

    I really love how rough your stuff looks like, specially the Monster/ Human portaits.
    I don't like the GIRL with the LONG hair so much, it doesn't makes me
    feel "I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO PAINT in PS" You improved soo much. Every body
    has this clean look, don't get me wrong the girl looks good but its just not up my
    alley.

    THANKS for the link, I dig your rough stuff, I think thats fun.

    -ANtY93 Thanks much! Very glad that you like it!

    -Aqualeot Welcome and Thanks! Yeah, I spent a lot more time inking her.

    -iven Yeah, glad you like the rough ones. They are really sketches.
    I need to learn how to make clean stuff as well though if I want to learn anything.
    Not to mention, even if it is clean, it is still my unique style. I don't know anyone else who does it quite like that. =]


    Not a big update here. I have been working on a couple paintings.
    Here is one, the other should be up here sometime soon.
    I threw up a bonus environment as well... I really have a lot to learn about enviros...

    I also struggle with environments, hence why I rarely do them, but one thing I have found is that it helps to have clean hard lines, if you notice the above enviro, everything is soft.

    I noticed some of your quick head drawings are great with colour but they are lacking in the proper application of light and shadow. I'd do a paintover on one of them for you to illustrate what I mean but I'm not sure if I should.

    I do like your use of colour in your characters though.

    I would be really happy for you to do a paintover if you would be willing!
    I do have a hard time working with tones and keeping good tonal ranges.
    Thanks for the words, and thanks for stopping by!

    SOoo, this isn't necessarily done. I am still looking at it and mulling it over.
    Figured I would post anyhow..

    value too. I hope you'll POP in sometimes, you improved sooo much.

    I really like the landscapes, and the birds eye view.

    Thanks much! =] I can't believe that they got rid of the "thank" button. what is up with that?

    Here is a painting I just finished, as well as some shots of a zbrush model I finished just a bit ago.
    Posting it here to keep this thread just barely breathing...

    I have really gotten sick of how dead this site is...

    The weekly challenges are barely limping, there isn't as much good interaction.
    That is not to say that I haven't gotten some great feedback,
    but I feel like the people who post are really starting to be a small holdout of the past armies of amazing artist that used to grace these halls.

    love the outfit of the girl in #229! pretty cool stuff, the whole painting as well!

    and yeh, this site isnt much alive anymore, its really to bad, and i dont know where to go for feedback if not here D: having a blog or tumblr isnt the same thing as a nice community/forum :/
    also, very cool zbrush model!

    awesome characters! and that 3D model is pretty impressive I really like the snow white piece! Awesome composition and dwarf faces And I should probably not try to give you any advice, since Im barely capable of drawing a straight line, but I feel like you could make the snow white piece even cooler than it already is by adding some depth and some color (I know shes supposed to be snow white but her skin is going to catch at least some color from surrounding elements).. Im terribly sorry if I ruined the piece, You are free to totally ignore this

    Thanks, that outfit was fun to design! I was trying to think what a witch would give her stepdaughter to wear, and that is what I cooked up.
    I guess I should stop complaining about the place being dead, and either post more myself or go somewhere else.

    -stinkypanda Heyya Panda, thanks for dropping by. Glad you like my stuff! =]

    -stinkypanda Hey again, I missed that you did the paintover somehow. Thanks for that, I like hearing critiques and opinions.
    I did think about that but then it occurred to me that since the fire was behind her, there really wouldn't be any warm light on her face.
    I probably could have darkened her like you did, but I was playing with the idea that the gem on her chest was a lightsource, I don't think that I pulled that off well though..
    Thanks again for the critique and all. I really really appreciate it!

    -NeonPoweredFirefly Thanks much! I would love to do more in that style. You will probably see something soon.
    Not today though... =/

    -stinkypanda Hah, thanks! I did the color on those in colored acrylic ink.

    I love looking at sketchbooks where the improvement on the last page is really noticeable from the first. It gives those of us who haven't been here long some hope! Keep up the good work!

    -thejamesbanks Thanks sir.
    There is always hope if you just keep grinding on. It can be really discouraging at times, but eventually you will see progress.
    The only real trick is that you need to do the hard stuff, anatomy studies, rendering and line weight practice, life drawing...
    Keep working, get awesome some day! =]


    Who the heck needs eyes to read anyway.

    The answer is probably yes, always...

    New stuff I like the portrait from imagination. It looks like some features have been slightly pushed but that gives it a lot of personality. something that is not easy to capture in a portrait from imagination. So good job on that one And the dark magic girl is absolutely hilarious! shes like I should have never agreed with these floating arms to give them my eyeballs. this was a bad idea.
    Its really cool to see you develop your style! time for a web comic? something about teenage girls getting involved with dark magic perhaps? I would read it!
    anyway, Great work! Keep up the good stuff

    Ohhh, I'm loving your sketchbook! Your characters are all so appealing and your paintings tell a lot of stories... I also feel I could learn a lot from your linework and colours... Thank you for visiting my sketchbook, I'm really glad I found yours!
    Thanks for the tips as well, Vilppu is the man, yes, I'm intoxicated by his lessons =]



    Hello! I really want to be a good artist... Being a girl who can draw some mediocre things just won't do anymore.
    Can you help me? I want MOARRRR!!

    Thanks a bunch panda!
    It is pretty awesome that you said that about a comic, I have actually been trying to do pretty much just that for a bit now,
    I just haven't felt ready for it. Glad someone shares my dark sense of humor though!
    You saying that though really makes me want to put more effort into making it a reality.
    Yeah I did push the features on it a bit, I tend to do that when I don't have any ref. I chalk that up to too many years of manga art. XD
    Thanks though, I am really glad you like it.
    Hah, about my style, I never really know what it will be next, so it is probably just as cool for me to see it develop! XD

    Thanks a lot zerosete, that really means a lot to hear.
    You keep up the good work, I will definitely be swinging by your sketchbook in the near future to see what is up! =]
    If you ever have any questions about any of the art I do and how I get it done, just shoot me a message or post here, I would be happy to answer whatever.

    Here is a work in progress that is in progress while I am working on it.
    Lineart is pretty much done, the sketch is still displayed underneath because I don't like the look of my lineart yet without something holding it up...
    I have already been staring at it with the sketch so long that I get really used to it. Then it looks weird when I take off the sketch to start coloring.

    I always do a really rough sketch, then a slightly less rough sketch refinement and then I figure out most of the real details in the actual ink...

    Violet has a posse! Creepy ghosts make for good backup...
