    DleoBlack SK-working on basics - update

    GO ON LATEST PAGES FOR NEW ART
    thanks for stopping here!

    Hello Guys,
    I've lurked for a while here around and there are a lot of wonderfull artists around here...so a bit intimidate to start a diary and show my sketches.

    I've started painting digital without the tradizional basis or an art education.

    I start this sketchbook to improve my skills in anathomy, copy from observation and colors value.
    So, here we go with some exercises..All comments are really appreciated
    Thanks

    My main feed back is to be more deliberate and less scribbly. If you have to scribble to fill a large area, your brush is too small.

    I think your knowledge of anatomy is pretty good. Those two female models look like they're about to fall over tho. Just trace the weight-bearing heel back to the center of the clavicles in a straight vertical line - that usually corrects it. Also, take a look at the necks of the red-headed girl and the girl with the green background. The hair is covering it up but it looks like the neck is hella thick on both of them. Are you drawing figures from life?

    z01ks: hello, thanks for your comments: yes, I've seen for the figures studies, I'll trace the weight line for the next ones.
    Only seen at criticism I can see my error; by myself i didn't see at the wrong necks! Really thanks
    (Usually copy anathomy from books or photos take here and there)
    From life i did only some roman-classical stuff

    Hmm, that's what I thought. You should really sign up for some classes with live models. It's hard to see much from photos, even with good lighting. Anatomy books are crucial, but if you only draw from those your figures will not have much life. So find some life drawing classes and you can really start learning, because you already have a lot of drawing skill.

    love the pirate : >
    Good to see you are devoting a lot to your studies, you have some really
    good ideas coming through in a lot of these.

    keep working on your digital work and i hope we can see the style you use in your
    traditional work emerge more!

    Thankyou for popping my my sketchbook!
    My goodness, I'm glad that I decided to check out yours, the stuff is amazing
    brilliant ideas, brilliant use of colours and your characters aren't stiff or unbelievable.
    I'd love to see more so I think I'll be keeping an eye on yours.
    Keep up the good work!

    the left lower leg from post 14 looks a little off ;-)

    great SB by the way, dont forget do draw lots from life, and to attend lifedrawing whenever you have a chance to.

    cheers
