Hay ConceptArt fans! This year is to be the year for art to grow... dont know why but it is.
I will be starting a sculpture of my main character Youla. I was suggetsed by one of the more proffesional artists I know, to make this sketch book. My plan and my hope, is to improve to a point where I could actuly START my graphic novel, without disliking the look and restarting. I want to inspire people, even if its only one person. I know it ounds corny.
ok! so, time to grind some exp!
Great work but it would be much better to see some more complete sketches instead of just the skeletons of characters. Keep up the good work!
Traveler - Ok I'll have a new bunch done tonight (South African time), the next few will be fleshy... gulp! What other studies would you suggest?
Doen - haha! I knew I would spell mabu wrong. grinding, grinding. Ok the flashy one's will be coming soon
Icedearth15876 - I will have some complete stuff for you in the near future. It would be a good idea to see from pro's where im going wrong.
Yay, some more exp!
I just dont get what im doing wrong. I'v been in art schools (never been top of the class but 3rd or 5th is more me), been in extra classes arfter school and yeat i feal as if im still drawing like I was back in pre-school. I know they can look better, but they never come out the way I plan. Guess its somthing you just need to work through. If your passionate about somthing, how will it fail?
fantasyartist - thank you very much! hmm you may have somthing there, thank you for the advice, i'll put some more studies here with that in mind.
Are you doing most of these sketches with a tablet? I find that I have quite a bit more control over accuracy and line quality when using good old pencil and paper. Unless you have a Cintiq, I recommend drawing traditionally and using the tablet for cleanup, tonal work, coloring/painting, texturing and experimentation.
Traveler - yeah the tablet is something new to me, but I find it better to use the tablet on quick sketches rather than wast paper, i tend to scribble allot for warm up's. But what I can do, is design on photoshop, get something likable, then draw it on paper, scan it in and rework it again on photoshop... bit of a lengthy task.
Hay everyone, Iv decided on a pose for my first Sculptur, Youla. Going to try to get lots of emotion and movment out of this... Have no idea how to do the metal parts, but I'll look for some nice tuts, thers bound to be some Gooru's out there.
I hear what you're saying about using up good paper on quick, rough sketches. Keep your eye out for sales (from classifieds, too) and you should be able to get a box (i.e. 5000 sheets) of regular copy paper for pretty cheap. That's enough to really be able to go through madly without much concern for wastage. Otherwise, if you're really broke, get creative and use anything you find that will take a mark such as paper bags, packing paper, cardboard, etc. If it's just for practice anyway you don't have to worry about longevity and such things.
That last post is looking pretty good. Nice energy and cool gun arm. Needs refinement but it's a good start.
Keep it up.
