    You might want to consider downsizing your images a bit. I always resize mine to make sure that the maximum dimension is 800 px, this way I am sure that anyone with any sized monitor can view my work.

    How long have you been working with digital art?

    more work from the traning course.. this drawing is a simple persective view of a biological enivronmentally friendly farm. The goal was to create an inviting scene for the viewer.

    i forced myself to use colours and drew a forest. I had just been to a music festival in a forest so... this is what i made. Not proud of it at all. and i cant really say i learned anything about colouring. My pens wer all very vivid and i couldnt mix them at all.
    Next one will be in photoshop

    What kind of internship is this? Is this like a program from a school or something? I would say learning the basics first would help more from drawing from your head. Def draw more from observation. I think that would generally help you. Even if you spend only 15 minutes a day drawing from life and trying to understand what you are doing is still better than nothing. Hope that helps.

    Hey baas, je hebt al vet veel geupload, cool dat je zo fanatiek bezig bent!

    Ik vind er een paar hele goeie tussen zitten, zoals post#7, #8, #9, #12. Vooral post #7 is super chill. Compositioneel leest ie heel lekker.

    Als ik je op dit moment een advies zou moet geven om snel goed te worden is het dat je meer zou kunnen natekenen "from life" ipv artiesten die je vet vindt. Idd, ik kom een beetje terug op mijn vorige advies. De reden hiervoor is dat in 'mooie' tekeningen al heel veel constructie-beslissingen gemaakt zijn die jij zelf nu niet hoeft te maken. Heel veel basisconstructie van het gezicht, die ik je in de vorige 'les' had uitgelegd zit in die tekening die je hebt nagetekend van mij. Het verschil is alleen dat ik die basisconstructie niet meer teken, ik maak de beslissingen al in mn hoofd. Ik zal vanavond je nog een tekening opsturen waarin al die constructie is getekend over de tekening heen. Ik ga je vrijdag ook nog iets uitleggen over dingen natekenen vanuit de werkelijkheid.

    Ik spreek je later

    Worked on this painting in photoshop for about 3 hours. I had a great deal of difficulty deciding which colours or layer I should do first or last. I only worked with one layer in Photoshop.

    This first piece is something i did for my sisters thesis.. she went to africa and needed a map of the township she stayed at for 6 months. The map had to show interaciton (or lack thereof) between caregivers and the kids.

    Second and third are doodles..I dont know if i should even post these things!

    I started to study faces and did this all within a weekend! Im extremely impressed with my progress. I used a black pen for the first few and than realized that a pencil is probably easier, however, I feel like I miss contrast when using a pencil.

    echt bizar hoe snel jij vooruitgaat.

    post 19: mooie kleuren met het water en haar lichaamskleuren. Ik denk dat je het van een foto hebt nagetekend of niet? Ik heb ook veel zwart wit studies gedaan, zodat het wat simpeler voor jezelf wordt. Ik zou niet alleen kleurstudies doen maar ook zwart wit studies.
    de eerste van 20:lekkere tekening. qua compositie leest ie lekker. De hoeveelheid mannetjes zorgen ervoor dat het een gezellige plaat wordt.
    Je perspectief zou ik voor oppassen, die klopt niet helemaal, vooral de verticale richtingen lopen niet naar 1 verdwijnpunt(3punts perspectief).
    je zou bij dingen die overkoepeld worden, zoals de afkapping van het dak en de bomen(het stukje stam net onder de bladeren van de bomen), een slagschaduw kunnen toevoegen, waardoor de tekening ruimtelijker wordt. zie bijlage
    je werkt ook goed met lijndiktes. Als je iets consequenter bent met waar je je lijnen aanzet, wordt de tekening sterker en leest hij lekkerder. Zoals bij de doelpalen, bij de 1 zet je de onderkant en de rechterkant van de palen aan. Bij de andere doelpaal doe je alleen de bovenkant.
    Je gebruikt nu je markers voor materiaal aanduiding. Persoonlijk houd ik ervan om je markers te gebruiken om diepte te krijgen in je tekenning. kijk hiervoor de bijlage.

    gezichten studies: echt bizar hoeveel je hier vooruit gaat. Ik zou zeggen, gewoon zo door gaan.

    Istmin52: Its an internship for a visual thinking company. Its a fairly new concept around the world and very few companies do this. Check out Jam visual thinking in Amsterdam.
    inspectorsokar: loomis books you say.. Already have two printed downloaded versions. Extremly helpfull by the way!
    Jelle: As alwasys thanks for the tips. I do agree that I should use markers for depth and colors for materials. I have stoped copying picutres and I am definately far more satisfied with the results. Im starting to realize that drawing takes time to develop seeing as there are so many things i want to draw.
