    Overlayed color on this one and finalized it. Contrary to what several tutorials state, I'm not a huge fan of the greyscale color overlay technique....i've tried it before but it doesn't quite do it for me. I like the outcome of this one, yet I think it couldve had a better presentation had I used a full color pallette initially. Well, experience is always good

    Hi mate, great sketchbook. I can see a lot of improvement from the start. Still life paintings especially, the glass bottle on the previous page is awesome.
    The leather jacket on this guy looks great. Think the folds/values on the jeans could do with tweaking

    Varmint: Thanks for dropping by! The 2nd half of the last page is probably where i've improved the most; im glad you also think so
    Yea those folds were killing me! I'm still studying drapery from a couple of sources but I never thought it'd be so intimidating!

    Here's my entry for this week's CoW! I wont be home tonight and kinda forgot about it, so the blood splatter are a little rushed but I learned a lot about textures by playing around with this!

    Well I tweaked a couple more things I noticed wrong on my peruvian dude, mainly on the facial structure, and below it, a piece that took me several days!
    I tried using textures sparingly, and did most everything with the round or flat preset brushes.

    Thanks Adamsimons, I used full construction for that one and it seems to be working well!

    Heres a random doodle, a quick dog study on molskine(I need to learn the proper shading technique for this type of paper) and a concept tank, although it is still unfinished and could use a few details but theyre not coming to me right now so ill give it a day or two before I tackle it again

    Hey,

    Some great stuff since the last time I was here

    The tank and the lizard monster designs are sweet. I really like the monster's eyes & head.

    I think it would help to be more aware of your light direction, it doesn't look 100% consistent in your pieces (eg the peruvian dude has a rimlight on his cheek, but it's not on the jacket, the tank has different values on all the front facing planes, that kind of thing).

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Kvetch, I have just noticed the light source accuracy that youre talking about. I think I did this to highlight some parts, but forgot about the whole whilst doing the details. Thanks, ill keep this in mind from now on!

    I tried tackling my issue with painting different types of texture, so I did a few material sphere studies. The rock and wood ones look the most complex, but really, it was the grass sphere that took me ages to get right(it still looks a bit off though, grass is hard grrr)

    Those material spheres are pretty cool man, and your traditional work's really good, particularly the drapery studies with chalk. Digital work is looking great overall, my only crit for your illustrations and such is that I'm seeing a lot of sharp edges where they don't necessarily need to be. You could try adding mists, smoke, shadows, whatever to fade things out more gently, or experiment with softening up the edges and leaving the form implied. Keep it up.

    Thanks chocobo, ill keep that in mind! I had really not noticed, or been thinking of softer edges, good reminder

    So my girlfriend found a skull study I did in-class and was kind enough to take a picture of it for me

    http://i870.photobucket.com/albums/a...ndroskull2.png

    Looking in retrospect, maybe I should of worked a little more on the ground are. We had 3 classes to finish this and I was going batshit insane over finishing the skull XD

    Ive been working on and off on that 3 character sheet. I was buisy this week so I did it by small chunks. Lots of experimentation! Im learned a lot with these, specially on that last monster thingamajig

    And first image is just some experimentation using hard light, opacity and linear dodge, nothing fancy but thought I would post it anyways.

    Thanks Joe777k7, ive been experimenting a lot lately!

    The first 4 are 20 minute environments to loosen up, and I liked the outcome of the 4th one a lot so I took another 3 hours on it to refine it and render the image a bit more. Ive been taking it easy and taking a small break from drawing to give some time to language learning...so this was a treat for myself.

    I can see improvement throughout your sketchbook - nice job!

    I like the material spheres you did, the grass one is pretty good and it does look difficult to do.

    Those thumbnails you did are good for twenty minutes, wow I paint soo much slower. The final one has a nice sense of perspective (some of the others are kinda flat). I like that these have more of a traditional look to them while much of your other stuff looks very cg. You draw really well, I think you should try to use that in your digital work, in my opinion anyway


    Nice sketchbook - keep it up!

    thanks Wholewheat_keyboard ! Sometimes I get carried away with the digital advantages and try out new stuff which renders my stuff very CG, but im aiming to get more adept at using different brushes instead of layers or textures to make it more painterly!

    I fixed my previous enviro a little and made this new one. we've had electricity problems at home and I havent been around much so this sketch took me long. Im still trying to fit as much content as I can without using several texture layers or fancy effects, just a couple of textures. Everything was done with two brushes. I think I might go back to fix this one a little after a while

    Hey man, sorry missed a ton of updates :o

    The environment thumbs are great I think the latest snow capped mountains one is too saturated, and needs more indication of space between the fore/mid/background. Also, that skull study is awesome.

    The texture sphere studies are a nice idea, I'm going to have to have a go at that.

    Hang on...

    Here, I did a quick little paintover of the mountains to show what I mean. Hope you don't mind
    It's very crude but hopefully you can see what I'm on about. harder edges in the foreground, more atmosphere, removed that little cove because the lighting made it look like it was hovering above the water. I thought it might be cool if you have some grass half in the light in the foreground... I think the water is still too blue.

    I dunno, just a suggestion. Hope this doesn't cause any offense

    That skull drawing is awesome!

    As an advice, try doing more color studies, still life's are best for that.
    It will cast more life into your artwork.

    Kvetch, thanks man no offense taken at all, your approach to it makes a lot more sense than my vision. Also, I meant to edit that little cove thing but never did, thanks on that too! Ill pay your SB a little visit soon! Try out the texture studies, they are pretty fun and you can learn a lot from them

    Thanks for the visit, Icecold! Yea the skull was fun, but very frustrating haha, we had like 3 classes to do it from begginning to end to some part feel somewhat undesireably rushed

    Ill do more color studies from photo refs soon!

    Here are some pencil sketches I did a while ago but never uploaded due to the lack of a scanner. The first two were done on A4 paper, they started off as really loose sketches so the proportions a re a little off and the perspective is too but I kinda like the concept of both. All the other ones were done on a moleskine pocket notebook....they are pretty fucking tiny XD

    ahhh man latest entry's are wicked. And of course those textural studies are great too. Your light and shade have improved greatly since i saw this SB last, well done man!

    Really like this your really smooth creatures are interesting, keep on going with them.

    Keep it up !

    So I picked my lazy ass up again and took advantage of my free time in the past 2 days to whip these studies up!!! The sitting pose took me 7 hours and the standing one about 5 to 6.

    I did not use the eyedropper tool, except for maybe a couple of times on the sitting pose when I could just not get those tones. Did a lot of squinting for these ones, and I can honestly say that I learned A LOT about light/shadow and skin tones with these excersices! Ill do more in the future
