the Unstopable Nobody
I finally decided to start a new sketchbook. I plan on making an ashcan out of it for the next Comic Con. So for better or worse let me know which ones stand out, so I know to include the piece or not. The theme is going to be gestures and quick sketches.
This will be the cover.

these are some recent landscape studies. I don't think I'm going to include these in the ashcan. I might use the yellow palm tree study. But the full colored ones I did purely for academic purposes. The important thing is I learned from those two. Even if they are typical and dull.

no offense taken. With many of my pics I see things I could improve, but in this case going back would be like cheating. The objective here is to get things correct right off the bat without fussing around or being a perfectionist.
Here are some watercolor studies I did at the zoo last year.

Post number 5 and the palmtress are very good. The lose style really accentuates the images and they benefit form it.
The zoo studies on the other hand are a tad too messy for me.
The face in the last post is nice, the left eye (her right) looks a tad dead and odd though. I think there is a highlight missing on the lower ridge.
Anyways, I am subscribing, so that I do not miss any updates!

Hey Janos! great to hear from you homey. I'm glad your following my thread. Thanks for the crits. The zoo stuff was pretty sloppy. I did that stuff with a group that wanted to sketch every animal in the park, so I was under some strict time constraints. Luckily it was hot and dry, so the watercolors dried up pretty quick. It was a nice opportunity to push an emphasis on color under the gun. I went for a Justin Sweet kind of look.
The last portrait the teacher pointed out that the mistake I made was being too delicate for the tools I was using, so that's why it's so full of mistakes.
Speaking of crits I have something I'm working on posted in the CC sub forum if you'd like to hook it up with your two cents. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=181013
