    Serious Business SB

    Hi there! I'm a 25 year old design student and my dream is to become a

    I hope this sketchbook will help me not to loose my motivation. ^^
    Comments and crit are totally welcome!

    The first one is cool. You could try to add other cool colors and tones to add more life and make it more artistic. Ariel is sweet but the skin shading is rough - maybe softer touch will be only in plus Here is the color issue again - the hair is not only light red and dark red... add orange maybe wine color. The tail too add blue tones atc...

    Cheers.

    The artwork you did for your friend's band is really awesome! The idea is great, and the interpretation equally well.
    Your pencil values and anatomy are fine, though your digital don't seem comfortable yet. In any case, you're doing the right stuff, just keep at this. Great start

    @BlackDelphin Thank you very much for the encouraging words! The Design was fun and you're right about the digital stuff, I'm not quite comfortable with painting yet, I hope I can work on that by doing more foto and life studies.


    also from today, a portrait from life I did with the mirror I bought for my desk (looks kinda weird, having this huge mirror on my desk but oh well...)
    Also normally I wear glasses but I didn't want to paint them, but I couldn't take them off either cause everythings blurry without them so I had to improvise a little

    @Eric-Anthony: Thanks for the advice! I've tried to use a softer brush for the
    following foto study and I think it helped.
    I want to push this one a little more, so it's still unfinished

    Nice lookin' sb you got here, I'm really digging your color studies. One thing about your mermaid piece, though, watch the shadows on her left arm (our right). The way you have it almost makes it look like a shirt sleeve.

    Keep posting! ^^

    Hi there! I think more stilllifes will give you better results at this stage. Painting from refs is helpful but it's still a 2D. Once you've mastered the color, doing refs things will take less time.
    Have a good one.
