    Cool Website

    I really dig this website. A website where artists actually help other artists, with critques and info on art related stuff I'm excited typing this.
    (UPDATE) March 7,2012 I am going to start using this sketchbook again and the comments on here are old so don't mind them. I'll start posting my studies so I can keep my progress on being a concept artist and I will do it.

    Drew it on Corel, and used Digital watercolor to put it in from white to black values. I colored it on photoshop, I had some trouble blending in. Do I have to use a blender?

    Hey dude thanks for checkin out my sektchbook! Do you have a tablet for your digital stuff? If not you'll really need one if you want to progress there. I suggest putting off the digital stuff for a bit until you really have a good grasp on the basics. Some useful books for starting out include those by Loomis, Bridgman, and Hogarth. I'd like to see you work some more with pencil and paper working on your lines and values. There's so much info on this site to help you get better so just keep pushing yourself!

    Good to see your studying keep it up.

    I would probably suggest to wait a bit with the colors. Start by focusing on getting the values correct and then later down the line, color theory can be added.
    Good value exercises:
    - self portraits (grayscale)
    - casts (if you have one)
    - simple still lifes.

    Well,getting more smooth lines is just practice,no special brushes for that I'm afraid!Just try to draw some straight lines in many angles,and you'll get the hang of it!

    Things are looking good Lidiev! You are definitely showing improvement since your first few posts!

    I also would recommend to pay special attention to your linework. Really think hard about every stroke that's laid down. Someone mentioned that to me in my sketchbook, and while it seems fairly obvious, if you really make an effort to think about it as you draw and study, it can really make a huge difference in how quickly you grasp concepts.

    Cheers!

    I did these two portraits with two hands, it did not take long and it is very cool doing it.
