hhh nice work
like iv told its just matter off time and people will start seeing your awesome sketchbook
I haven't been able to scan anything recently.
So for now, it seems I'll need to keep uploading pchat stuff.
I've been struggling a little to get into the swing of how a fine artist thinks as to getting their ideas. Like Brian Stelfreeze says, usually, either we're as fine artists and always have something we want to draw. Or we are as concept/studio artists and end up being as the assassins of the art world. Only killing when given the command.
That's not a bad observation.
I was staring at a skull for a full half hour the other day just noticing things.
Sorta seems like the kind of thing I should do more often ^_^
Damn computer died a while ago. So it's been hard to update.
Finally got a hold of the loomis Pdf's.
So I'm laying down a few quick studies as I start off.
I'm mainly practicing faces because someone said that my faces look off and creepy. Though it turned into a look at my understanding of basic mass and shape.

I like your stuff. Keep it up...

I do find myself reinforcing my art well with this stuff. But the results using the loomis methods are making rather odd results. I suppose I just need to alter these things to work with me, or have me work with them. Whatever works better.
I know exactly what you mean about the Loomis books giving you odd results. I've experienced the same thing when I've applied the methods to my drawings from my imagination. Don't get me wrong, the books contain A LOT of good information, and I am definitely not one demean the books in any way.
However, what helped me with this experience was to use reference photos and see how the methods actually work with my referenced drawings first. If that made any sense...
I hope that helped, even a little..
you have a great sketchbook coming along, keep doing those studies I cant wait to see more.
I. Love. Your. Style. You draw people like I want to draw people.
I know exactly what you mean.
Even when studying a master, we'll all have to take the efforts to find our own way; I suppose ^_^'
Your comment TT_TT it makes me happy
I hope to do so once my skills back up my form and organic perspective.
I hope to have those be more of the norm of what I do. Though I still want my craft to be based in linework.
Kay. So been doing some stuff to improve the confidence of my lines.
Here are just a few figure drawings out of the bunch of doodles I have.
I expect to be posting ink traces I've been practicing with soon.
Comments are welcome ^_^
Hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook . I would say just keep up the studies. I like your figure drawings ^^.
So I went ahead and took your advice.
I'm strengthening my base elementals for things like the head.
Working in planes is something I haven't done in a long time. It's a mistake to not have done so.
But I'm very sure I'm obtaining the lesson well.
Please let me know if you have any comments.
why thank you. I'll sure be posting a whole lot more studies and figure drawings as my fundamentals are in need for me to do such things.
I hope to be able to offer you some advice of worth one day.
I sort of feel bad posting nothing but these little pchat sketches.
Well, soon that might change. One needs to build confidence. Especially after having redone technique. I apologize. Though I am enjoying myself.
Here you are. A single for today...
So, I'm back from the dead. I have a good machine of my own now and intend to do consistent work. But we'll see how that goes. Anyway, I was thinking about practicing compositions. Then I thought, "hey, it's almost Thanksgiving! What am I thankful for?"
So if you have any comments on composition or how to really express what I'm thankful for, I am all ears.
So after a few good words of advice from all of you, I have chosen my focus and have started to really structure my studies. I will be working with Speculative genres.
I'm starting myself gently with a few 10 minute value studies. Here's one of them. No critiques on these yet. I don't consider these to be anything but a bridge into the real concepts I'll be posting, which I'm going to encourage plenty of critique on.
Here's the image:
I figured out that blood is actually a little harder to gesture than I first though.
(note for future work to everyone: my eyesight is pretty poor so I have a very hard time with textures)
