Nice animals! Some great interiors too. For your figures/faces. You mentioned that you don't want to spent time on them because your proportions are not always right. So you want to concentrate on environments. Nothing wrong with that , it's good to set some goals so you develop faster.
But don't forget proportions will come in time. Just keep tackling your weaknesses and you'll get there. Try finding ways to make it fun, that's the most important, keep having fun and you'll get there .
A quick painting I did this summer...I know i gotta do more, school is really hectic. Once Xmas rolls around I hope to really add to this sb. Stay posted, don't give up on me yet! Thanks for all the comments guys! Dave, you give me too much credit, but thanks!
Great job, it's nice to see you are keeping on different subjects, enviros, characters and various styles also. I really like the more stylized approach on #45 enviro. Nice simplicity.
The characters of #46 have nice movement, great work for animation. The expressions and movement shows (in comparisson to the other sketches) that you must have confidence this kind of sketching. The hand and feet are really awesome.
On 47# second sketch, the anatomy is indeed weak and the black outlines are too rough for this one. The colors, as you wrote, are catchy. I really like the character between, but i made an effort to realise what exactly was, too many details round the face.
As for the girl, did you use colored pencils? It reminds me of the Tim Burton style. How this paper is called?
To be honest, you confuse me a bit. I mean, there are sketches like #35 and #45, that shows pro work, and after that i see something like #43 that shows a bit more amateur, even if it's quick. I think you (we actually..) have to focuse on a certain quality result every time. I can understand, that, many times you are not in the mood, and just want to try different things and that's ok. Actually, that's great, but have in mind a final result of a certain quality, even if it is finally crap.
Keep up man and take care, we're in the same boat. Ciao!
Hey Knut thanks for stopping by! The blue piece was done in a couple of hours, probably not even that long since I was watching TV when I did it...I honestly dont see much wrong with it other than the fact its not developed...speaking of which Ive been meaning to come back to that one, so thanks for the kick in the ass!
The woman was done in colored pencil on recycled brown paper sketchbook, its really nice for putting down colors and accenting them with a white pencil, but unfortunately its no good for Markers and water based media.
