    Thélema's sketchbook full of win!

    O hai...! I always wanted to open my own sketchbook, but I always though my art wasn't good enough.

    But here I am, giving a try. Feel free to crit me I you like, I do know I need more practice, specally with anatomy stuff, lights and shadows, and well, mostly everything xD
    But since I'm improving A LOT ( seriously... the drawings I did some last months hurted the eye ._. ) I'll be uploading here some of my work.



    Here we go!

    A quick ( 2 hours ) face study. I wanted to do an oriental face, but it turned a little occidental as you can see :/

    Working on male anatomy with a photo ref.
    Thélema's sketchbook full of win!

    First time drawing a background. I think I overlooked a bit the girl :/

    Aaaand another speedpaint. I think I achieved the atmosphere, though I know I must work harder on the background.

    Some of your painting (here and on deviantart) really reminds me on Algenpfleger's (Hannes) and Janaschi's (Jana) painting.
    By that i mean some perspective/composition/theme/color palete idea.

    On one image you've post on da you wrote in comment that it is a copycat from Jana.
    I wouldn't suggest you to do that. Don't try to copy color palete, composition,.. from other artist. Try to understand (learn) how things work. Copycats won't teach you much.

    .:WoLf:. Yes, they're actually my inspiration, as well as other artists. The copycat was just for fun, and belive it helped me a lot, I realized that I could use other colours that I'm not usually applying. Hey, I'm just a begginer, I need to pay attention to toher artist's work to improve mine

    shambok Thank you so much! I'll upload more speepaints as long as I can

    Here goes more anatomy sketches, some from imagination, some from observation.

    I also did kind of a light study, very quick.

    And you say your work isn't that good. Dude, you are great! I love your character designs and sense of color. Some work with the facial proportions, but other than that, its good.

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

    It's because I'm a lesbian haha. Just joking, I love males but it's hard to find some cool models out there : ( Besides my boyfriend never wants to pose, I think I'm doomed.

    Nice stuff. I like your colours. As a crit, maybe try breaking down stuff into basic 3D forms and pushing the planes/values more.

    Hi.
    You are right, you need more anatomy and
    more figure studies.
    Try referencing the figures from
    posemaniacs.com .
    I saw your characters of the week,
    they are pretty good.
    I will try to vote for you next time.
    Your color combination is outstanding
    and I like the quickness that you are working
    for example you did that first portrait for only two
    hours? That is so great.
    Anyway, keep on posting and focus more
    on anatomy. (In the post #19 on that character, Ezreal
    the anatomy is real wonky.)
    Cheers.

    Agree. You're paying 80% of attention to faces when you detail. It's not good, especially for a full body pic with complex background.
    Also try to do some landscapes from refs.
    Good luck and all.

    Hello there! Like others have said, just keep doing more anatomy studies.
    The faces you draw are lovely, and I heard that you have problems finding good male models?
    We have threads that are chock full of varied faces/bodies of males and females on here.
    I'll paste the links.
    Men:

    Women:

    There's a good sense of light in these. Like a few others have said, focus more on anatomy. Not just the contours but the underlying structure. Study the muscular and skeletal systems in depth and it will help you alot.

    See my Sketchbook!!!!!!!!

    And my blog

    This is really beautiful!
    You've got some cool painting skills (wish i had 'em too )
    but i think that you need to focus a bit more on studying the anatomy, especially the hands and legs.
    Your faces look really good but in my opinion you definitely need some more work on the rest of the body.
    That's why i liked that picture above so much, you manged to make all her body life like and the colors where really good too.

    Keep up the great work and keep those anatomy sketches coming.

    Alex.

    Whoah long time without entering my own thread... I totally forgot about it, oh my... it's a FAIL lol

    Thank you so much for your comments and support, and yes of course I need more work with anatomy, I actually passed my anatomy subject at school, wich is lol, but imo us artists never end learning.

    I thank you all, I'll come back with some sketches from life as soon as I have time to scan them ( and as always sorry if my english is odd )

    Hello again Thélema from Spain.
    Cool thing that you updated and even more
    cooler that you participated in the character
    of the week competition.
    The painting you did, the Lady of the Lake
    is good, what I like about it is
    the colors you used, you have
    a great sense for choosing color combinations,
    the background is good,
    the forest is looking misty and enchanted, you
    just made the ambient cool,
    but what I do not like about this painting is
    the anatomy, but I already mentioned that above
    you need more practice and
    you should work more on rendering
    the human skin, rendering the rocks
    and the water also.
    The water surface should be more
    realistic and should reflect the objects
    differently and actually the water surface
    should be a great card to play on this painting
    cause it could catch the most of the viewer's
    attention and could represent the mirror image
    of the world and the mirror image of life's concept,
    like a hidden message of this painting.
    I would liked if you have implemented some
    ghostly fairies flying around her, like misty and
    hardly visible.
    This is my point of view about this piece,
    I hope that I helped you at least a bit with
    the advices about what to improve first and
    what solutions could be done more on the painting.

    Hey, if you want to see a lady with huge monster
    tits, then come to see it in my sketchbook, I am
    just close to finish rendering her beautiful skin.

    Thank you so much for your comment lieutenant Plissken! *salute*
    Yes it's right, i had so muuuuch trouble with my lady's anatomy, and sadly the background was finished too quickly and i had no time to put more effort in it. However, I'll repaint it when I had more time ( and skills too ).
    And of course I'll check your sketchbook!!
