    Holy crap I finally updated! Sketchbook (Updated 7/01/2014)

    Hey there since I don't have an art class this semester I thought I would start up a sketchbook to keep my skills up. Also to improve on my extreme lack of comprehension of anatomy so advice and critiques are way more than welcomed.
    I'll try to update daily with 1 hour studies or concepts.
    Tell me what you guys think.

    *UPDATE Well it's definetely been a long while since I last posted hopefully I've improved a bit...

    I'm also open for commissions, if you're interested email me at: chunloart@gmail.com

    This is for a contest held at my school. I decided to go with a more graphic design direction with this piece. The theme had to be something pleasant (it literally said no dark or gothic art, which I am rather familiar with as I often work with that type of subject). Also this piece is intended for donors of the school...so it needs a warm and pleasant feeling.

    My concept for this piece is the nature of curiosity. Curiosity often distracts us from important things or events, but through curiosity one can find amazement and wonder through the simplest of things.

    I would love a critique as this piece isn't due till about a week or two and would love some feedback on readability, composition, and just generally anything that pops out at you.

    Did I do a good job at creating something warm and pleasant? Also the giant sea hawk is there because it's my schools mascot, might get some suck up points for that loll>.>

    Hey man, very impressive work! Your anatomy could use plenty of work, but your coloring ability shows a ton of promise.

    On the last piece, the landscape looks barren, not very pleasant. Consider adding some plant life. Also everything in this piece is equally detailed, which makes me unsure of what the focal point is; I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at or what the piece is saying. Right now the bird commands the most attention due to its size and overwhelms the girl. If you desaturate the bird it will help bring the girl forward in the piece. Also the butterfly blends right into the background because of how detailed the background is, so I would suggest using broader, lush strokes for the background. Just some thoughts to play with.

    I'm not all that good with giving critique but I think LIffey has a point. It's a bit overwhelming with all the details. But I do love the colours and concept a whole lot. Cool job on the bird!

    The last one is very nice. The Colours are beautiful, but I would try pushing the bg further back with colour perspective. Make it lighter, less saturated, bluer and loose some contrast. And its ready to go.

    That piece suits the pleasant theme, it is a really nice image. What is it actually to be used for if it wins? I'm guessing the white banner across the top is for text to go on? I actually think it would make a beautiful book cover. Love the composition.
