    chris_kaw's sketchbook!

    Hi guys and gals of Conceptart.org After what seemed like forever, I got off my arse and started this sketchbook. I'm hoping that by the end of this self-teaching stuff, I would come out at least a somewhat skilled artist.

    Thanks guys, and you're absolutely right Diarum. That seems to be the number one lesson right there.

    Thought I'd post some throwaway pages from one of my notebooks. (because of my somewhat poor memory retention)

    Looking cool so far. Try playing around with line control (create solid lines with fewer strokes) when you do the studies to reduce the scratchy look. Keep it up!

    Thanks for peeping out my sb and the little input btw

    WIP from photo ref, trying my darnest to learn how to blend paint strokes better. I did learn that using airbrushes makes skin duller and well... worse. I'm currently using greyscale cuz' my I have yet to fully understand color theory and all that good stuff.

    Great sketchbook so far, you're latest Posemaniacs studies are very impressive. Try to do them daily and you'll get far. Looking forward to more updates!

    Yep, the headaches have started.

    I've spent a good chunk of time trying to figure out ways to improve my workflow. Do I go digital, or do I stick with my messy pencil work? Do I work better as a lineguy or do I paint directly on the digi-canvas??

    These are things I'm trying to figure out but if you've got advice on the matter, I'd love to hear it!! I sighted the stuff below from a place called characterdesign. Always wanted to go to Tokyo.

    I like you life drawing and the different topics you've drawn, like bats etc. But maybe you want to concentrate with pencil and shadings first? I see many people jumping to digital straight away, while I feel learning values and strokes through makes you improve much faster.

    With digital, it is almost impossible to draw accurate strokes, usually its a matter of adding and erasing, but with traditional methods every stroke counts, So you are more attuned in your accuracy when you transition to digital.
