    Lance's art time adventures :D

    well, its about time i finally started one of these.

    im an aspiring concept artist from the US (California). i turn 18 in a little less than a month and im going to the university of illinois at chicago for art and design in two weeks.

    ive taken a bunch of fine art classes since i was little, so i think i have a pretty good grasp of drawing painting from observation, but my imaginative work sucks :/ ive been doing creature of the week here for a while and i wasnt very happy with how they were turning out because i realized my anatomy was just terrible. i was fine when working from ref with just about anything, but as soon as i took that away, i was just kind of mucking around, trying to figure out what to do and wasting a lot of time. a really inefficient way of working. so i decided that i would take a hiatus from cow and work on my anatomy and shtuffs. i dug up all the old animal books that have been collecting dust in my room since i was little and decided to start drawing from them. started doing that and then i discovered algenpfleger's sketchbook. in just two years or so, he went from just an average kid who just wanted to get better at art, to one of the best artists ive seen period. its the most inspiring and motivating thing ive ever seen.

    his work ethic taught me what i was only beginning to understand. there are no shortcuts in art. of course there are certain techniques you can learn from people and tutorials and such, but they only get you so far. the rest of it is up to you. i see a lot of people everywhere asking "how do i render this", "what brush did you use for that". i was the same way. but ive realized there are no magic brushes or tutorials to solve everything for you. you have to just go and draw. many people these days talk about a "visual library": things imprinted in your brain from drawing them over and over that you can look to as reference when drawing from your head. what i want to do is to build up that visual library as much as i can and see where i go from there.

    so anyway, enough with the ranting, lets get this sketchbook started!

    ok, got in two more of these. im taking a class at art center college of design so ima be pretty busy tomorrow finihing up this weeks assignment. hopefully ill be able to get in some more studies. we'll see

    i realized that cuz i was failing so much at the super short speedpaints, i should take more time and just get a better feel for the colors. 40 mins on the first, 30 on the second. i think these last two went a lot better, but i gotta do more

    your paintings are looking washed out,trying using cooler colours in your backgrounds and warmer colours in your foreground.

    Your animal and face studies look really good. How long time o you use on the figures? Some of them looks a little stiff. But you need to work more on your colors, pretty much all the paintings have almost depth, they look flat, try some aerial perspective, and like nubien suggest, some coolor colors in the background to push it further away. Also think about your saturation, do use saturated colors everywhere, but save it for the areas of interest.

    nubian greene: ok ill try to push that a little more. digital colors are probably what i need to improve most. started out traditionally so im havin a little trouble O.o

    jskotte: thanks. yeah, again, i need to work on my colors. the poses are a minute each. go to posemaniacs.com, click on the 30 second pose tab, and it opens up a slideshow thing and you can set how long you want each pose to be up for. shortest is 10 seconds, and the longest is 90. its pretty awesome

    eeh didnt get much work done in the last two days. at least not as much as id have liked. its the last week of the summer class im taking and for the last week we have to go back and improve/finish all the work we've done so far and display it all next thursday kind of as a final. so basically im gonna be super busy this week; no time for studies but instead ill be doing stuff for that class, which ill hopefully post every so often. heres what i got done the last two days:

    sharks!!! these were fun...and good line practice. they have such fluid shapes!

    ok heres 2 more duplications i did. theyre copied from other peoples art, im just doing these for learning purposes. again, these are COPIES! im gonna be doing A LOT of these. i have a folder with exactly 300 im going to paint...its gonna be a while. im learning a lot though. its fun to try out different styles too

    oh, and i found out why the file was too big earlier. my photoshop somehow got switched to CMYK color mode instead of RGB, which made the file size like 10 times larger

    I'm pretty curious as well.

    Your painting are brilliant! I like the sharpened 'softness'

    Don't bother looking at my sketchbook. I haven't updated that thing in years. :/

    Haha I love the title of this thread... because THAT was the EXACT same reason why I started mine. Literally, after checking his thread, I have been more motivated to bust my ass than ever. We always know there are the guys who draw ALL the time and those are are true competition... but to actually see an example of a person with that work ethic, and to go through the chronology of the beginning to the amazing present day is truly inspiring. It makes me realize that I too can reach that level if I just focus on that too. Cheers on bein inspired brotha.

    Dude for being under 18 you're already becoming dope man. Those first couple of pieces are def better stuff than mine. That still life of your clock made me go gaga haha. Only suggestion I got is that your figure drawings are purely contour. Do more anatomy studies. Pick up either the following

    George Bridgeman's Complete Guide to Drawing From Life(Or any book of his as a matter of fact)
    Andrew Loomis
    Stephen Peck's Atlas of Anatomy
    Michael Hampton's Figure Invention book

    Either of those will definitely help you in building from the inside out. Also figuredrawing.info is Michael Hampton's site and he has alot of his lectures available.

    Also check out posespace.com and posemaniacs.com if you haven't already. Good luck.

    .:wolf:. and a la bapsi: hmm i though it was obvious but i guess not. (sorry my explanations kinda long ) well, its just like with drawing from life or doing anatomy studies, whenever we draw something, we store some of the information of whatever we drew and it gets easier to draw that thing from imagination. that goes with for anything, from anatomy to the way light bounces off things. i went through literally over 2500 pieces of other people's art i have saved on my hard drive and picked out the ones i thought i could learn the most from. for the most part, i picked ones that are fairly realistic-looking because i like that style more and i can learn more from them. but there are some in there that i picked for other things, like colors, rendering, or how dynamic the pieces were(action poses and flying dirt and such). of course, i could probably lean more about light by painting from life, which is why im doing still lifes and paintings from photos too. but another thing im getting from these duplications is style exploration. some of the subjects in some of them and just the way they are painted is SO so different fom what i usually do, so they are great practice to really push your boundaries and try new things. ad im trying to do them quickly, so i get faster at laying down colors. plus, theyre a lot more fun than still lifes hope that covers it.

    miladthaha: thanks! these are just speedpaintings, but im really trying to get better with edges (soft and sharp)

    apacalyrical: ohoho, another hannes fan, i see? cheers to you too! thanks a bunch man. and i most definitely am doing anatomy studies. ive got some loomis saved as a pdf (2 books) and another really great book i found. its by giovanni civardi if you want to look it up (its REALLY good ) im also looking into bammes. ive got about 16 sketchbook pages of anatomy and animal studies, but i dont want to upload them until i can get a scanner. ill post em when i get one. thanks again!

    and heres another duplication. took about 1.5 hours, maybe 2. i did thisone cuz i thought the colors were really great, even though its not terribly realistic.

    i also started cow 191, but i dont think ill finish it in time for the deadline due to me being busy as f--k and also needing to do a lot more studies (such as mr kitty up there). here it is. not even close to being done...oh well. i might try to finish it sometime later when i have the time or interest

    Your observational paintings are super good but I would say your figure drawings could use some loosening up. Don't focus so much on the outline but more of the gesture of the pose, the weight, the "feel". Have fun with it! : D
    Great environments, my favorite falls between the forest harvester and the waterfalls.

    good stuff dude! more figure and anatomy studies would help.
    your environments are awesome, try using a wider range of colors in your pallete dont get stuck with just two kind of greens and two kinds of yellows play with it use as much colors as you can its fun and gives the painting a richer look.

    keeeeeeep it on!

    Danny_K: i knoooww i need to do study anatomy mooorre! O.o thanks though

    well i ended up redoing that cow a lot sooner than i thought haha. its really based off that puma painting but i like how it turned out...cept the people look crappy. that last study helped me with colors a lot, but i still have a LONG way to go. aaaurrgh! i need to do so much more aaarrt!!!!!

    just went through defiledvision's skecthbook here. hes got some awesome stuff in there, his colors are amazing (and hes not much older than me! O.o) haha anyway great motivational boost there.

    heres some creature sketches. i think im gonna just draw out a bunch of sketches and not paint them yet. im planning on doing a photo study with similar lighting to what i invision and then try to apply that study to the sketch. that way (hopefully) ill learn a lot more than if i just did a photo study and moved on.

    defiledvision's got some great dragon paintings early in his sb. theyre mostly from a side view, so those kinda inspired this

    defiledvision also has some pokemon paintings in there so i just had to (me being half asian and all). when i first started this i thought the colors were going a lot better tha my previous pieces (theyre not all super desaturated for once) and then i think i lost it somewhere...but then i played with some overlay layers and...im not sure if its working or not. i know i need to use a lot more varying shades of green and blue, maybe some oranges and yellows too. thoughts? i could use some help.

    important lesson learned: APPLY YOUR STUDIES!!!!!!
