    Cool It crawled out of the desert one dark and lonely night

    So I've followed a common script on CA: Long time lurker, posting more recently...and have been blown away by the incredible art posted here...and encouraged by seeing the VAST improvement in sketchbooks over years of posting...and have finally decided to start my own SB.

    I'll be posting some older pics (so you can see where i've been) with the new.

    Just finished this portrait of Keira Knightley...created using Sketchbook Pro w/ a Wacom Intuos tablet.

    You can see some of my process “steps” over at my blog.

    Hi all,

    It's raining in Phoenix...something we don't see often enough for my tastes.

    Anyway...had a good day. Met with the department chair this morning to see what classes I need to finish for my associates degrees.

    At first, when I started back to school I took a bunch of Maya animation classes...and then after a bit...went over to the fine art department and have been taking classes there.

    Two teachers had told me recently that the school was now no longer offering a 3D animation degree. But I researched the catalog and thought I could still be "grandfathered" in.

    Initially, it seemed the chair was also suggesting that I couldn't still get a animation degree...but I persisted a bit...and YES...I have enough core classes to qualify under an old catalog.

    So now I need to decide if I wanna take some extra required classes to get the full degree. Otherwise I'm well on my way to getting an Associates of Fine Art and Digital art and a certificate for animation.

    I kinda want to finish the animation associates too though.

    So any advice or suggestions? It'd prob'ly add at least another year of classes.

    -------------

    So here' some stuff from Anatomy class...both charcoal/conte...and if I'm remembering correctly...24 x 30":

    Back in classes. For anatomy...we're starting with the bones.

    I borrowed an artist's real human skull for the weekend...and did this skull study over my Keira portrait.

    I was kinda creepy having a real skull in the house all weekend.

    The second pic is a pastel study done for Life Drawing.

    Heya Jephyr, welcome to CA, and grats on getting your SB Thread cherry broke

    I'm mostly an urban environments kind of guy, so I can't comment much on the anatomy of most of your humanoids (But those leg muscle studies look real nice). One bit of advice I can offer is to not be afraid of hard edged brushes. Took me a while to get use to it, as I was used to using soft brushes for blending all the time. But trust me, hard brush blending, when done right, looks A LOT better than soft brush blending.

    Just relooked at the image of Ms. Knightly (Is that how her name is spelt?), and it seems out of focus, the face (Minus the facial features) seem blurry, but the eyes especially seem sharper. But then again, I do have poor eyesight =).

    Keep on trucking.

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Thanks for the welcome RS!

    And thanks taking a look and for all the feedback...it's appreciated.

    I will give a harder brush a try. I also found that I wasn't working at 100% zoon. When I was working on the skull overlay I discovered that and when I went to 100%...it seemed to make a difference.

    I think that'lll take care of that soft focus blurriness...that and as you suggest...a harder brush. Thanks again! Oh and I'll slide over and take a look at your SB.

    -----------

    So my instructor asked for my process "steps" on the skull pic. I'd already created one for the Keira portrait and had postd it to my blog. (as you'll see I was originally intending to do a figure study)

    On the skull/anatomy pic I created a layer above the skull with a copy of the original prtrait on it and used a soft eraser to try out different compositions.

    Thanks for looking in.

    Great stuf!

    Yo!BoneKrishna here!Came to check on your sketchbook!You got a good thing going on here!Keep it up!!!You got a wonderful control over your collors and a great sense of anatomy!your traditional work is really great!the only thing I can give a advice on is in your digital pieces...just like Rabbi Satan said, you need to harden your brush!I know it seem kinda tempting to look for the ultimate blending that just seems impossible to achieve with traditional media and when you see that smooth perfect soft brush it even calls your name!but believe me...it just backfire on you!the hard brush may be harder to use but it will give some really great results!Try it out and blow our minds!hehehehe
    see ya!

    love the studies, and the thing with the skull is pretty awesome; as for that look at the colours of the studies, and that of the bird and old man ~ you seem to be over saturating it and using often very agressive value contrasts that do not really click together: All good though since you seem to be on a good path.

    Keep it up

    Cool

    Hi! Thanks to everyone who looked in.

    DaStreets and Eric-Anthony: Thanks!!

    BoneKrishna: Thanks! I've been trying harder brushes on some of my WIP's. I'm afraid it'll be a hard habit to break...but I'll keep working at it. Thanks again.

    dan liimatta: Thanks! I definitely see what you mean. I've been a nothing more than a (bad) pencil sketcher for years...so am just now finding my color sense. I appreciate the extra set of eyes and will try less saturated colors...and integrating them.

    ----------------

    Here's a few more digital pics from '09. All done with sketchbook Pro.

    This first one was a quick one done just for fun...and made me laugh.

    Wow, well done Jephyr - I did a double take. I initially looked at the image and thought, man, the guy in this photo is ripped. Then I realised it was a painting. Wow, well done man .

    I've seen you painted my future wife , it looks very good. I also love the cartoons. The torso looks very well rendered; perhaps you could show us more of the stuff you're doing for you anatomy class, that seems very interesting.
    The advice about hardening your brush was good. I see in this last posts that you've conquered that part.
    I also think that Dan Llimatta told you a good advice, your colors are to furious (saturated). In real life, things can only be that saturated if the right light is hitting them directly and if they are smooth surfaces and very clean (as dirt tends to add grey to the color wich makes a desaturated feel). Also, most materails are made of a compound of diferent groups of molecules, and each group is of a different color; so from our POV the colors are mixed giving also a more desaturated, colorless effect. So, I'm just saying that a few things could be saturated, but not the mayority and either all of them.
    Your last pieces are great, but too saturated. Look at Dan Llimatta's SB. He's one guy that knows his stuff.
    The fact that you are studing anatomy cancell pretty much any potential advice since your doing the right thing already, and your drawings show a lot of skill and talent, so, for know what I'm saying is keep studing the anatomy and check the colors

    Cool

    Lennon: Hold on a second...she's MINE!!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment, your encouraging words, and a very valuable critique!

    Even though I've taken color theory...the concepts you explained about the way we see color is extremely helpful to me. I have looked at Dan's thread and have begun to see what you mean on his art and many others here.

    Now the hard part...putting it in my art.

    Thanks again!

    So for you here's another charcoal: surface anatomy

    love the bust oil painting, though the tle too solid and great work on the cartoon sketching, i think the old guy drapery looks alitpiece has alot of life to it, although the eyes could do with some eyelids anyway hope to see more of your traditional stuff and keep up the good work.

    Fiori: Thanks for stopping by! Appreciate your comments too! I'll try to post another oil painting asap.

    ----------

    If anyone is in the Phoenix area and is into animation, check out the Chuck Jones Exhibit at the Tempe Center for the Arts.

    I've posted days and times, several pics and all the related info and links etc at my blog:

    http://artmusicpoliticsfaithandlove....ibit-pics.html

    If by chance you don't know who Chuck was: He was an American Master (September 21, 1912 – February 22, 2002).

    He was an artist/animator and director for Warner Brothers and created or collaborated on the creation many of their famous characters (and/or directed their animated movies and shorts): Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Marvin Martian, Pepe Le Pew and Michigan J. Frog to name a few.

    His ability entertain with those iconic characters, to animate them with exaggerated but believable movements and expressions, and his amazing body of work is IMO seriously impressive.

    His desk and books etc (although I don't think he had an LCD TV in the 1940's...it was playing a DVD about his life. : )





    Some of his hand drawn sketches and notes etc

    So I've been working on an epic (for me) piece and started to feel burned out on it. So I took one of the images (pen and ink) I just uploaded here...dropped it into Sketchbook Pro and gave it some color.

    I tried to put into practice the suggestions from the great critiques I've gotten so far...where it was universally agreed that I was using too saturated color and was painting with brushes that were too soft .

    So am I closer on those counts?

    Here's the original drawing and then the digi-painting over it.

    I've included a few drawings from my sketchbook below.

    Critiques and comments are most welcome!



    I have no idea why the attachment manager didn't like these. I'll leave them here in case they show up. (Ahhh...fixed now)

    Thanks for looking in!
