    Hey great stuff! I really like your studies and like some people have mentioned before do more imagination drawings! I really like the pencil/pen piece it has great value! However your laptop needs more value but great work keep it up!
    If you don't mind could you look at my sketchbook and let me know where I should start!

    A bit late from my side but welcome to CA ! Great start. Looks like you are on the right track. Keep churning out the anatomy studies . The acrylic paintings are looking awesome. Would love to see more of those. They have a great mood to them. The gorrilaz sketches are awesome. Love the lines on those. Keep them coming.

    Very exciting start here! At this stage, best thing to do is just draw, draw, learn, draw, learn and draw some more and don't give up! It's a hard journey but you will get there.

    I think you're doing pretty good. I too was going to suggest more gestures and I saw this post:

    I think you're looking at it the wrong way. Gestures don't FEEL helpful, because early gestures usually look like a flaily mess instead of something super pretty. Gestures aren't about pretty - they're about exploring shapes and movement. If you realize you've drawn something at a wrong angle- just carve a new one over it. - maybe your drawing ends up with 3-4 arms or 5 heads, great! that means you're beginning to see better.

    Some drawing exercises are like that. Your results are ugly- and sometimes you feel better burning the evidence than posting the results- but it's what you learn in the process that matters.

    The best lesson I ever learned is that your sketchbook doesn't need to be pretty. it can be full of hideous mistakes, exploratory sketches, notes, and crude diagrams.
    Save the anal stuff for long studies and clean drawings.

    So go do more gestures. They ARE helping. I promise.

    Happy sketching ^_^

    Kayshay Thanks. Replied to your sketchbook! ^.^

    sin eater I am not totally new to conceptart, I was already lurking around before. Thanks man!

    Qikalain Thanks man!

    AllyAlbon Totally sign. I need to draw draw draw and paint paint paint!

    Rhubix Thanks man! I didn't mean that I don't like that they look shitty. That's something I don't care about because I know that they are just studies. But I just couldn't get as much out of them as I hoped I could. But I will do them anyways again. It won't hurt me, lol
    Thanks!

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

    Sooo many replies, awesome. Motivation +5! >

    Here's some sketchbook stuff from today.
    I want to bump into digtal painting again. Perhaps I'll do a still life or master study tomorrow.
    For that I also opened a livestream account:
    Livestream.com - Nemome - Painting & Drawing

    But I'm going to announce it when I go live.

    Cheers!

    Cojac Thanks!

    As I told Kayshay above, had some bad hadache today, so there's only a 2 hour still life from this evening.
    Not the best but I still like it.

    I think the doily looks weired and unfinished and you could work on the leaves more with contrasts then outlines !

    In your gesture drawings, you use a lot of hard edges. Especially in the hip areas. You should practice more on smooth shapes and lines, really try and "feel" the subject you're drawing.

    More work on the masterstudy.
    I still want to add some texture to it tomorrow but then I'll call it done and I'll head on to the next piece because I want to get better at digital painting.

    Finished that study a few days ago.

    Now I'm into some school stuff again, so sorry if there will be a small lack of updates for the next days.
    There is still one study left that I need to do because my goal was to do 3 master studies.

    Happy New Year by the way! ^_^

    Bleh, I don't get much done recently.
    So much school stuff and I am not feeling that good..

    But here's a photostudy I did this evening on my tablet.
    Added the bridge and the two figures from imagination to have some fun.

    I think you have a great start to your sketchbook and you're very good at digital painting. I'd like to see some more sketches and stuff. And as everyone says, gestures, gestures, gestures. I know, beating a dead horse, right?

    I still feel like I do not even know where to begin with digital painting. I've seen some stuff on ctrlpaint, but, I still feel super intimidated. And the tutorials here too... Still feel like I can't do it yet. LOL. I am so weird!

    Best of luck!

    Yemi775 Thanks man!

    TristanFletcher Thank you. The references are from different resources. Most of the times just browsing the web and tumblr.

    yogeshj25 Thanks! I know, I'll need to push my figurative stuff more again. D:

    AdrienneRose Thanks Adrienne! :3 I'll try to do my best. School is keeping me busy lately. :<

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

    Sorry for the lack of updates everyone.
    School is keeping me busy and due some personal problems I also didn't get my ass up every day. Gnah.
    I'll try to update more often again.

    Streaming some practices about "Masking".
    First of all watching some tutorials and then trying to apply it.

    My sketchbooks got merged thanks to BlackSpot!
    Due some problems with my old account (Pixelwalker) a few months ago, I created a new one (this one - Nemome) and a new sketchbook. BlackSpot was so nice to merge the two sketchbooks together again, but my accounts still aren't merged (have to wait until an admin has the time to do it).
    Sorry if you are / were confused!

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


    Sup, back to some serious practice!

    Watched the totally awesome livestream of Anthony Jones yesterday and it was mind-blowing!
    AJ and the other guys conversation really kicked my ass back on the road.

    Things that punched my mind:
    - fundamentals are still important Nemome. Silly bastard I am... D:
    - values! Just look at values everywhere! Analyze the value range, analyze saturation of colors, ...
    - use your fuck*ng brain when painting
    - network with other artists!

    Sup, that are the main things that are stuck in my mind currently.
    Back to work, yihhaaa!

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

    To get this rolling:
    A portrait study where I focused a lot on values.

    Notes:
    - Jeeeeez, value range of stin tones can be so short. Brightness was most of the times around ~80%. +-10%. There are only small parts in the shadow of the skin that really go into some dark grey. Made me realize how much I sucked before with values!


    Thanks for stopping by!

    Great work on these values here!
    I she meant to be 3D? Cause of the blue and red around there it seems so.

    I like your photo-studies. You pick pretty photos and do them pretty
