    More w.i.p. progress on these deadly character sheets! Now that I'm finally starting to understand what I'm doing more these are slowly starting to pick up the pace And I'm really happy with how far I've been pushing the textures and patterns! Now I just need to make more content for them and complete it lol

    these are looking great! the characters are both very individual, but there seems to be a common link between them - it's easy to see they belong to the same universe/ story. also, this is looking very intriguing; can't wait to see where it goes... and i'm always envious of guys who can do creature design that well. ^ x) i love how you've managed to keep them so saturated and colourful, but they still have that disturbing, scary quality.
    yeah, so i basically love eeeverything in that last post.

    oooh, awesome, i see your control over proportions and colors are improving! Keeping the lines looser seems to let yourself go and create awesome stuff! keep posting!

    Jessibelle- Thanks! Glad to know my original intent read for you Thanks so much! Glad you approve XD!
    redrobot- Thanks staying loose keeps your mind open on the painting i think xD it helps! thanks for the kind words!

    So I'm tackling an environment now! A cave, and like I don't know how to make it dark without using brown, and im pissed off cause it will print out black. I'm trying to add other light sources so there's reflected light and warm/cool contrast. so frustrating!

    FINALLLYYYY one of my portfolio pages is done @_@ I think before this final design, i did 6 different layouts. This took too long.

    I KINDA get the feeling a crammed a lot into a tiny space, what do you guys think, then again this is being displayed as 11" by 17" on paper.

    The lower half is a promotional postcard mailer version* which is 5" by 7"

    I have not slept in 2 days =____= *whinewhinewhine*

    xinranliu- HAHA thanks man! ( was that referencing riki oh? XD )
    sony- thanks for the kind words, I try to bring as much personality as possible to characters.


    Made a step out of my comfort zone! A quick painting of boston, from outside my studio window at my college it was from a photo i took a while back, but still... i miss it already!

    Trying to learn perspective and incorporate more architecture. I feel the more i practice painting landscapes and buildings the more comfortable i'll become with it so i can then bend it and start using my own imagination.

    Also I'm trying to vary my color usage, and that's what i focused on here too, making the sky saturated and the buildings more muted.

    Hey there! What a inspirational sketchbook! So much life and motion. And I love how it seems like you're really enjoying your studies, the only way to go!
    Oh and that virtual pose thing seems interesting, do you buy it or how does it work?
    Peace

    skMOP- haha thanks so much !
    Jessibelle- ;0; yay, so happy to hear you see that!! thank you jessi!
    Vloth- yes! I am having a blast with the studies >: ) VIRTUAL POSE IS AMAZING, however, I wish it had more foreshortening, BUT it's really good if real life models are not available! I bought the books through amazon with the cd's included and saved the files, and resold them XD

    So I'm trying new things, like painting metallic and reflective objects, which takes forever, but im learning so much. And I was looking through some sketchbooks on here, and some people are painting mma fighters/boxers and I got all excited and had to try it myself, it's awesome male anatomy practice and good dramatic lighting practice!

    1. mma/male anatomy practice 2. spoon 3. metallic wrapper

    Today was an adventure. I got really bored while waiting for my car to get fixed... So I tried drawing cars in perspective around the dealership because I still draw cars literally like a 2 year old with their first crayon, from memory... These are all toyota's. I feel better now as I start to draw new things, I realize all the things I was afraid to draw really aren't that scary

    Any advice on drawing cars, or perspective in general would be much appreciated!

    Lovely sketchbook!, as for drawing cars I would try to think of them as basic shapes you know like a box for the car body cylinders for the wheels!.

    I like the cartoonish stylization of some of your works. I also liked the waterfall/ spring studies that are in the upper part of this page. One thing I noticed, you can be more precise in laying lines and tones. Think zen - the right move in the right place in the right time . Sounds funny, but I really think it. I know I'm still not doing it too.

    I think you overdid the bounced light on both the banana and the windowpane, giving them a little bit too much reflectivity.

    JamesSimons - Hey thanks man! And thanks for the advice, I'll try to break them down more
    Moonrage- Hey man, thanks so much for the advice I'm gonna try this method more too!
    tmth- Nice catch there, sometimes I overdue stuff XD still don't know what I'm doing when I paint digitally, thanks for the advice!
    Sickbrush- Dude, your thread, is totally 5-star material XD! Thanks!


    I work 2 retail jobs now, and my motivation has slowed down a little, but I'm slowly adapting to my new schedules, trying to fit art into it, I feel like my art is starting to get a 'deader' less gestural consistency... I need to fix that within the next month, I really want to progress and not backtrack >:0!

    But I'am happy. For the first time in like 7 months, I picked up a paint brush and used an opaque painting medium o_o I REALLLLYYYYY like acryla gouache... It's so amazing! I'm going to start forcing myself to make traditional still lives everyday now. I'm not going back to college in the fall... So I need to keep this motivation/drive going >:0000!!!

    This is really amazing. I guess this is a pretty dramatic thing to say, but a lot of your pieces literally took my breath away. Awesome!
    And here's my sketchbook. Help me out with some c&c?
