    in2eternity - Thank you! I agree; I tend to avoid color because it's one of my weaknesses, which is exactly why I should focus on it more. Thank you for the helpful feedback!


    This is as far as I got with my Sawsbuck COW pokemon redesign. I don't really care for the design anymore, but I figure I should continue with it for the practice (since I have little experience with either animals or plants).

    Black Spot - Thanks!



    Here are some antler thumbs I did for the Sawsbuck design that I forgot to post before.

    These are compositional thumbs for a Terra fanart piece I was thinking of doing. I really wanted to have her riding the Magitek armor suit but still have the character visible, so I was trying out various vintage pin-up poses. 17 and 24 are my faves I think.

    Zweit - Thanks dude! Haven't seen you in ages! You should update your SB or let me know if you're more active somewhere else; I've love to see what you've been up to


    Here are some random sketches I've been hoarding. I've been thinking about horses and trying to find a construction method that works for me. I find their heads particularly confusing because I don't have a guideline for the proportions.

    And these are from life. First image is a pigeon and a guy in the park, and the second is a bird I drew at a natural history museum (black and white charcoal on watercolor paper toned with a black acrylic wash).

    You did a great job in capturing the fluffiness of the sheep!
    Did you use custom brushes for the fuzzy edges?
    And how much time did you spend on the drawing?

    Thanks!

    I'm afraid I don't know how long it took; I don't keep track and it was something I would work on once in a while over a few weeks. Maybe 6 hours or so? That's just a rough guess.

    These are the brushes I use for fur and hair: http://fav.me/d5rdzig

    Wow it's been a while since I've been here, such an improvement! And I have to echo the others in saying that is one fluffy sheep, really great texture work, shame I can't make use of the brushes you linked as I use manga studio and not ps

    Here's that old revolver study finished up.

    Last night I went to a Dr. Sketchy's figure drawing event and finally got to try live figure drawing with a laptop and tablet. It turns out to not be anywhere near as awesome as I thought it would be. It's actually really awkward because your arm motion is limited and you can't move around the room to find a good spot. But it really pushed me to draw faster and was in general really fun.

    Iíve been having trouble with artistís block for a while now. I sometimes get burned out from drawing, but I always come back to it pretty naturally within a few months. This time itís different because I discovered programming during my dry spell, and now I have to try to find time to think about drawing. Itís weird.


    Anyway, I was going through my folders trying to free up space on my laptop and found a bunch of stuff I never posted.



    Hereís a mouth study; I was mostly playing around with random brushes.

    Last February I went to a Dr. Sketchyís figure drawing session where the model came in a vintage sci fi outfit and helmet that she made herself. So cool! She was really into it.

    I took one of the images and added a quick background so it doubled for my environment study that day:

    And I managed to squeeze out one last environment study for day #38. 38/100 doesnít sounds great, but I did manage to get over a month, which was cool. But by the end I found myself hating the challenge, environments, even drawing. I guess I learned that although itís great to push yourself to improve in areas you struggle with, you also need to know when to take a break.

    Study of a hackysack. I started off trying to keep my brush size larger than usual and keep to simple brushwork. I had a lot of fun with that.

Views: 818
Size:  13.5 KB

    But then I decided to do a little more work on it and let myself use slightly smaller brush sizes, and I rather quickly crossed over into my over-rendering mode, which I feel makes it look sad and static even though it's more realistic.

    Helloooo! I'm back from the dead! I've been trying to get back into regularly making art.. And specifically trying to get some stuff done before the end of the year so I don't feel like I didn't make anything in 2016.

    This is a study from a photo I took (trying to focus on texture but also just trying to enjoy myself):
    Name:  pumpkinstudy_4web.jpg
Views: 667
Size:  26.5 KB

    This is an old piece that I started years and years ago but never quite finished. Trying to finish it now! I feel like I could call it done, but it's so outdated that I feel like I should go around and repaint everything.. I'm looking for feedback on what I should prioritize because I don't expect to spend much more time on it, but I would like to put a little more effort into it before giving up forever.
