    Hey man, I was looking through your sketchbook, cool stuff. Nice to see you decided what you needed to do and made a commitment to do it.

    I don't really have much to tell you because you seem to be doing the right stuff to improve, which is just drawing a lot and putting in those hours.

    If anything I'd just say keep in mind negative space, landmarks and shapes to help figure out the proportions of the figures, and to gesture out the figures lightly to rough in their proportions and pose. Maybe also try and vary your line weight just a bit more. Like I said, not much to say, you're doing what you need to do. You may eventually want to throw in some more value or color studies.

    You have some cool other stuff as well, like the Fallout stuff you worked on. Also, those photos of where you live are really great, it looks awesome. So different from the one season we get here in the San Diego suburbs. Let me come down there and live with you.

    Keep it up!

    @JIEZHOU its one hell of an evil cat with lots of weird expressions... should try to draw her again ^^

    @Untouched24 thanks for the feedback, will definitely keep those things in mind.
    and yeah, the seasons are nice... just got like 30cm of snow again and it keeps coming... will be sad leaving for denmark in a month- they just have 2 seasons- 1/4 is summer and 3/4 is mordor-like autum, kind of of like on the last photo XD

    did some color practice, this is as far as i can get with my skill set so any ideas on how to take it any further is appreciated
    i still like the pencil sketch better but i have to start from somewhere... practice practice practice.

    Hey nice pencil sketches mate. About the last post her right leg position is kind of odd. You could add more highlights and sharp shadows caused by the gunfire in the dark. Maybe itll add more realism. Just a thought.

    Well, Keep up the good work mate.

    Love the last picture, in the pencils you can see it's a very dynamic scene.

    The colour could so with a bit more life to it, maybe more contrast, like more light to draw the eye to the action in the picture- I'm not terribly good at colour theory so I'm not much help. xD

    Keep experimenting though, I love the concept!

    I am absolutely LOVING the photo sequence of the house a few posts up - thats amazing! It's very curious how weather can change so dramatically around us, & you've somehow captured a cozy sort of feeling here - it reminds me of lazy & cold rainy days, with the wood fire burning. Maybs I'm just strange like that, btu I'm reallly liking it. keep it up!

    I agree with above brillant ide to capture same location during diffrent times of season , mabye doing some studies of those will help you understand diffrent weather conditions and colours depending on what kind of weather you want to achive, amazing ide, i might acutally try and do the same, shame i dont have a sucha beautiful location nearby other then that there is some great progress you got going on

    @troyzart i think that cozy feeling must be called home then ^^
    but yeah, its is rather fun to watch and will always reminds me of the place when im far away in college again eating noodles

    snatti thanks! the funny thing is that i didnt really have the idea until i had already taken most of these- theire shot from the main entrance so every time i went to take photos i just snapped a few for fun or to test the settings eventually i was pretty happy to discover what i had made ^^

    Hi there,

    Thanks a lot for your suggestions regarding my weapon concept 'Tiger Claw' in my sb mate. I really do appreciate it. Actually you were right about most of the stuff. I was struggling with the perspective and made some errors without me noticing it. Anyways good news is it will be reworked as i planned earlier since i need to learn more about lighting and painting so that i can present the design in a better way.

    so as a 'Thank you' , I really would like to go through your entire Sb mate. So that i can give you my honest opinion about your work. Sounds good? Ill do it tomorrow probably coz right now im bit busy with a ref drawing.

    toyourself is paying off, judging from the
    season timelapse photos in #152.

    Hi there,

    Well i expected more pages for a one year, but you have some good work in here.

    Im not a great critique, but will try to give my honest opinion

    your life drawing and photo refs are great mate. It seems you have improved a lot in that area. just work a bit more on the facial details.

    Also try to learn more about lighting. Itll help you a lot when aiming for realism. I think Loomis' books will be a good start. Even i have to learn it

    some of the work that caught my eye...

    28 – The movie thing looks cool. Its good that you have done storyboards nicely as well.
    37 – fallout 2 stuff are great! I really like the textures.
    60 – good work here, I like the muted color scheme in 2nd pic from top.
    81/85 – Good work. I like the usage of cool colors. However her arms (esp the left arm where she holds the weapon) looks little off. Nevertheless, good job.
    98 – Looking good, However, there are some minor anatomy errors.
    123 – lol. I like this one. Unique piece.
    132 – looks good but could have improved with some sharp shadows.
    152 – Your photo sequence is great. The changes are nicely captured. Well done. Those jewelry designs are interesting too.
    161 – I love the colors you have used here mate. Good background and foreground definition using cool and warm colors. Only thing is too much vacant areas In the image. Nevertheless, nice work.

    There it is . Hope it helps. Try to do updates daily. Keep the studies going on as well. I will check it out whenever possible. Good luck mate.

    [/B]tPlissken[/B]lots of fresh snow mostly... the rest is all the same.
    50mm sure is paying off though, using it for almost everything. For environments (like the timelapse) you need something lower like the 18mm though


    @Mike Frank thanks!

    @devastacio it has only been 6 months- the plan was intense studies for a year so im half way there ^^

    thanks a lot for the feedback! very nice read and quite insightful.
    will try to keep up with the updates but Wednesday's and Thursdays usually screw up the schedule with trips to town for life-drawing sessions.

    i guess if i give it all a look myself. the main thing i should be working on are
    1. line-weights
    2. lighting / rendering (havent got much into that yet)
    3. keep the drawings cleaner
    4. more anatomy
    5. better hatching
    6. hands-feet-face (detail)
    5. keep my lazy ass off the nets and on the drawing-board.
    6. enviroments (have been mostly focused on the figure so far)
    7. Learn to color in photoshop

    Anyways, heres a little from yesterday... life-drawings and smudging practice.
    got carried away with some other stuff so not too much drawing done.

    whee those season photos are awesome!

    my comment on the cg cow kill painting is that the shadows are too blacky, makes it feel dirty. ive heard this said by art teachers/tuts but i still dont know the remedy, but thats how it seems to me
    keeeep itttt upp!
    also did you make that jewelry? that last one is awesome, the black ball twined up like that

    Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.

    @aks9 yeah, ive heard the same with black. the remedy would be to use colors equilent to the shade... brown earth would have dark brown or blueish colors, green has dark green, etc. definitely something to learn there

    the jewelry is made from scratch with no reference. pretty fun stuff.


    in other news, just sipped in the sauna and bashed my fist through a widow... pinky is cut from 3 spots... pulled out a shard 3cm deep... will be a bitch to heal i bet... so not looking forward for that :/

    Ok life drawings.
    I would advice, not using fingers for smudging,
    cause it make the drawing look blotchy and dirty.

    Yeah i guess Snake is right about it. Even i use fingers or a cloth to smudge. Time to get a paper stump i guess. Take a look.
    http://www.ehow.com/how_5912633_draw-paper-stump.html

    Anyways those life drawings are looking good. Usually i like to see more detail

    Keep it up mate and do couple of fantasy stuff like in #161, when you can.

    Lol, the drawing of the guy in the wagon getting blasted is great! One thing though, not sure if it was mentioned before, but i notice u drew one of the legs behind a rock which should be avoided. Good drawings, keep it up! 8)

    @ devastacio & LtPlissken yeah! i love paper stump tool along with some make-up cotton. Its really fun to work with when you have the time. I use finger smudge on life drawing sessions when i'm limited to 10-15 min- dont have much time to switch tools, its all on the go... some lines here, some smudge there, more lines there, etc. It looks rough but will look much better then just line drawing (hatching is still bit out my league) but i will definitely try some finished drawings with photoref and proper tools soon... itching to use them again!

    , last time i got around to it was 2 months ago on this thingie: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1285674963

    @Flanagan good eyes! drawing out hands/feet really makes a better impression and gives you practice. gave up with that foot though after drawing it over and over again... sometimes things can get a bit frustrating ^^


    well, after not being able to sleep i went to the hospital and got 3 stitches in the finger... the whole hand looks quite rough.

    on another note, the scanner needs some cleaning and a heavy top to keep the drawing flat!

    Your figure drawings are coming along nicely. It appears you're grasping the anatomy and from of the model. Perhaps add some more contrast to your shadows to make them pop out at ya.

    your hand is now officially part zombie

    Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.


    [...] what concerns us here is not imagination itself, but rather creative imagination; the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization.
    - Igor Stravinsky, The Poetics of Music
