    Dark Razvan's Sketchbook (quest for improvement yay!)

    NEW STUFF IN THE LAST PAGE!


    -------------------------------
    Hey there!
    KAy dunno how to start lol.. well..
    I'm Razvan, that's the nickname I choosed to have, and I like being called that way (not telling my real name >,>! lol) ... anyways, I started a sketchbook a log time ago but didn't ealy updated it, besides I was really a noob in art, but for the last year and a half I'verealize I needed to do a little re-start, relearn the fundations, and really pus myselfto the next level.
    I've kinda neglected the need of studies, or sketching, not because I don't liked itbut because 'I didn't had time to do so' (I believe it before -.-u), since I was mainly doing commission stuff, and a lot of works I really don't like.

    That burned me down really bad to a pint where I didn't really wanted to draw, mainly because of that, but also because of some personal stuff.

    So I'm really wantig to start all over again, but this time in the right way (and try to do the same thing wih the other aspects of my life), so I'm starting this newsketchbook, with the hope to be a really good arist, do stuff for myself (which I've been barel do foryears, and I regret that).

    I'll try to update this on a daily basis, even if it's just a drawin, since I work from 8 am o6:30 pm... so basically all my day is spent on my job -.-.. but I have lunch time yay! so I'll work on those times to get my studies nd everything done =)
    Also, I tagged this a sexual situation since I'm gonna post that kind of stuff in the future since I'm also a ecchi/hentai artist x.x, and really wanna draw that shit good enough.


    Kay no more words and let's go to the real deal!

    Ohhh, It's lovely and sensual and just absolutely delectable. I'll take him home now. My only thing I can find that seems off.... The pectorals seem to be a bit too dark beneath them, giving him the slight impression of firm breasts.

    studies

    OK, I realize I suck at drawng, since I've been focusing more on my digital painting skills for the past year, so now I'm trying to work it all, starting with the lines first, so I'll be doing this for a while I guess, not sure if I'll colour'em up .
    Any suggestions?is it better to do line/structure studie>value monochromatic studie>colour studie of the same pic, or just do several pics for each stage?

    Anyways there we go, some studies I've been doing while at lunch time at my crappy art job -.-

    All of 'em are done in SAI, the House one isn't done yet, gonna keep working on it, and do then the colour study =), I really want to do that in colour(loves colour! )

    Just be careful, he's kinda rude xD

    Thanks! I'll fix that when I get to the colouring stage this weekend(gota hate my job u.u) and I'm glad you make me realize of it, I don't want him to look like having breasts xD

    Sucks having to work a job you hate. No possibility to get outt of that and into a better one?
    Anyways, I really like the realism in here, and the realism inspired anime ( I guess teh first ine is an originally anime character?)
    Anyways, his "breasts" should be flatter, just lighten them up more (but leave a pretty harsh shadow.
    The colours are very nice, the mouth is also pretty perfect but the eyes need more work as does the nose. Try breaking the eyes and nose into planes. Reference can be good for that, try googling.

    Cheers

    Hi, I recognise your username from back when I was active on dA. I think I faved a couple peices of yours there :3

    Really love that first image, his face is just... difficult to stop staring at. haha. Great work on the eyes, it's so easy to make them look dull and lifeless, but his seem really alive, to me at least.

    So you use SAI? I know hardly anyone who uses it xD It's my preferred program, but most people prefer ps or Painter. I really love how smooth and flowing your lines are.

    You don't suck at drawing. You just seem to have a safe zone(portraits), judging from this images, that you could to get out of. If you have more stuff linkplz. :B

    Oh, and another thought, haha. You asked about the process of studies. When you say 'value monochromatic studie>colour studie' are you referring to doing a greyscale version, then adding colour over the top with layer modes, or do you mean first painting it in monochromatic, then painting a seperate colour version without using the value study?

    I would recommend painting colour seperately, either way. I used to do all my studies in greyscale first, then use colour over the top, but now I find that when I try to start with colour, I almost always end up painting things too dark and desaturated. And I don't think I learnt a lot about colour using that method.

    Also, as for which studies to do in what order. Not exactly sure I understand the question, but her are some thoughts.

    I don't usually focus on doing a ton of line studies, then a ton of colour studies when I feel I have improved my line work. I try to do a bit of each all the time, because if I do a ton of lines, then none for a while, then try to go back to them, I find it a lot harder.

    I also don't always do studies from the same picture, for example... If I draw a portrait for line practice, I don't always do a colour version, or a value study, using my line study. Sometimes I just pick a different photo and use that as my colour study, without doing lines. I don't think either way is more beneficial, I think I just get bored of looknig at the same piece for too long xD

    Hopefully some of this has been helpful to you :3 I look forward to seeing you update with more art.

    Janos:yeah it totally sucks, I hate to just being tracing stuff with illustrator -.-... sadly I can't get a better job =/

    kay got it, gonna work more o the ees and nose, already noticed the nose was bad, wasn't aware of the eyes thou, thanks for he advice!

    Azekariel: Yeah I love Sai so far, bee using it for a couple weeks and it works really smooth, I love to experiment with different software, btw thanks for te advice on the studies, thou I really like working on the same pic at different stages,never got bored lol, thou that's an amazing advice on not colour over the top of the grayscale, also I have to do many many colour studies sice I had the bad habit of colourpicking for a couple years and it's hard for me to get the colours right now lol >.<

    Kaileighblue: well I mean, I suck at getting the propportions right in the drawing, I struggle with it, thats why I say that, specially on the face and feet, that's why I'm focusing on portraits atm, going to do different stuff later on.

    Aaaaaanyways, here's some update, a studie of a photo, and some 30 secs poses from posemaniacs.com... jeez I suck now at gesture drawing xD, excuse me for the shitty lines, thou it was a nice exercise, gonna do it everyday from now on!

    Nice job on the colour study! Yeah, they're tough at first, but they help a ton. And besides, you learn more if you challenge yourself :3
    Looking forward to updates :3
