    Pnate sketchbook

    Hey everybody, here are a couple studies I did recently to get it started. My biggest weakness right now is painting from my head so hopefully there'll be improvement over time. ANY crits or comments are welcome
    Btw, the majority of the studies I'll post are from photos that don't belong to me, unless they're still lifes.
    Thanks for looking!

    Anybody know how to edit the title of a thread? I forgot to put up a NSFW thing in.

    Whew, looks good so far, but the one thing that stands out to me is on the first image, I've never really seen a pair of breasts like that...? They don't sag to the sides at all, which is what breasts naturally do, making the nipples seem unnaturally close together. Even small breasts would have more distance, I think. And keep in mind that in females, the breasts are angled 60 degrees away from one another, so if her torso is facing the viewer, neither would be straight-on.

    Just my two cents, take with salt as I am not very good yet. I would like to see more!

    Ooooh some nice stuff PNate. You've got some real confidence with the brush. I hope you keep posting and maybe even talk a bit about your process.

    I always assume that any and all sketchbooks are going to include nudity. Seems natural to me.

    Marlee-thanks for the insight, I always have trouble rendering the front torso/chest area :/ Creating form with light is something I'm struggling with a lot. I'll keep it in mind!

    feeesh-Thanks!

    NathanH-I'm far from confident, but thank you! Process-wise there isn't much going on. Richard Schmid's "Everything I know about painting" is my bible these days, so everything in there I'm trying to apply. I was a bit worried about the nudity but it seems like everyone's sketchbook does have some, doesnt it?

    gordebak-Thanks man, I appreciate it.

    Blizzard5291-Thank you for the kind words!


    So here's the study I did today. I got really tired of rendering the fence and background so I'll just leave it as is.

    Cool studies dude, there are some areas where the brushwork gets a little muddy perhaps you could simplify the strokes with more big brushwork or render it a bit more to clean it up. Your edges seem really same-ish all over this sums it up pretty well.

    You’re off to a good start anyways, hope you keep updating and getting better!

    Benjie-Thanks! Your advice about edges is something I'm trying to improve and I see what you mean about the muddy brushwork, I appreciate the feedback

    Here's a failed still life. It's so terrible I wasn't going to post it but then I slapped my pride in the face and so here it is. There are a billion things I could blame for its lameness (the light changing every other hour) but I guess it's a sign I should do more still lifes (positive thinking, positive thinking)

    You've got some amazing stuff here my friend - real pleasure to just stare at these.
    Don't sweat doing the nudes - it helps with the concentration I think - keeps it exciting By the way - that last girl's hands and toes are freaking kill - I'm still going back and just staring at those. Great job!
    You've got some really great complex/simple brush work that's really fun - dig it. Keep up the hard work man! (Saw you on Crimson Daggers too ) Just remember to stop when the wrist and hand fight back!

    meticulous-Thanks man! I really appreciate it. It means a lot to get kind words from a fellow enjoyer of nudity lol. Long live Crimson Daggers!

    Nice work! The latest female (with fence and green background) is nice, the cooler green and bluer tones are successful. Post more.
