    Quick sketches

    Hi everyone,

    @ Snake- Thanks for the detailed review mate. i really do appreciate it. But you shouldn't replying if you are going through a busy schedule. But honestly your presence here is always a welcome sight especially when im getting an all out assaulted by shiNIN and Sivonja... LOL...just kidding. I wouldn't have come this far without those hard crits. Ill be working on my linework as you and Sivonja pointed out several times. Glad that you like my last update. maybe youll like the latest update of Thalestris as well. ill try my level best to eliminate those errors. Thanks a lot for the encouragement mate.

    @ shiNIN - hehe. I hope im not giving you a tough time by posting like a crazy sob! anyways just reply me when you are totally free only. i know you need loads of time to improve yourself as well. The sad story is i cant help you like the way you help me out mate. im not experienced enough to do so. but ill try my best to help you out Thanks for all these valuable crits. Just know that behind my improvement you and all my other friends are there.im grateful. i mean it. Oh by the way..as i promised, ill be doing my version of 'Teresa' from tomorrow onwards. i started my fact finding today.

    @ Sivonja - Whoa easy there. go easy on this poor beginner. hehe. Anyways thanks a lot mate. Ill keep practicing.

    Don't worry, helping you is one of the best things I can do with my time and that's just do good to my motivation
    I posted another "Tegaki nostalgy" time-consuming stuff in my sb... I wonder what would be different if I would get crits... Maybe I needed that years when I drew thousands of faces and every drawing was very wrong... I fought with my tools as well but not just that, that's obvious... Whatever.

    The eyes? I have no problem with them, pretty ones.
    I don't like the mouth, again. The farther corner turns away from us, I wrote that already. As if it would be in a cylinder... The center of the mouth should be a little more to the right as well, I think... I'm tired now but I had to post, I'm addicted
    Oh and the usual slope on the top of the head... I can't explain it more now.

    I'm sorry for this messy blurb, I try to behave in the future.

    Awesome expression on the first woman! You are right that the perspective of the second woman's mouth is a little off, but it's still a good study. All you would have to do to fix the mouth I think is shade the bottom lip a little more evenly with the darker tones you have on it.

    Try to widen your value range more. Determine the direction of a light source and begin darkening areas that receive less light and highlighting areas that receive more light. Also, keep in mind when to use gradual shading (in areas that are more round, like how light is distributed along a sphere) and more abrupt changes in the shade (in areas that are more angular, like how light is distributed along a cube). These are some things to think about for your next drawing. I admire your dedication. Keep it up bud.

    Those faces still looks a little messed up. Make sure to flip them when you are drawing to get a fresh look. If you are using pen and paper, look on your pictures thru the mirror. You will avoid such mistakes like wrongly placed lips, or other anatomical issues. Wish you luck, and keep posting. I'll try to visit CA more often, cause I'm skipping to many of your updates xD.

    Teresa - Initial concepts - step 1

    Hi everyone,

    shiNIN - hello there mate, Thanks for the crits as always. im not completely comfortable with drawing lips in different perspectives, still. But ill remedy it soon. Yeah thinking it as a cylindrical object would solve the problem i guess. thanks for the tips. Oh btw you can write anything you want here mate as long as you dont violate the forum rules, its fine by me

    ezekrialase - hey hey, good to see you back in action mate. Glad that you like the 'Thalestris' concepts and thanks a lot for the tips. i guess have to do a 'Lips' study soon!

    TacoMeat - hello there mate. Glad that you dropped by. Yeah i recall you mentioning this to me sometime back as well. Im sorry, i was really busy with the face studies and i was really careless with my linework. But this week ill dedicate some time to go through some books and slowly get this fixed. Thanks for all the tips mate. I appreciate it.

    Kungfoowiz - hey bro, glad that you like em. Still they are far from being perfect but ill get there! thanks mate

    Ramalooke - hello my friend. After long time eh? yeah i remember you mentioning this to me before as well. I tried it once but i couldn't make head or tails out of it. But today i think i found the true advantage of this neat little trick! thanks mate. much appreciated.

    Well lets get to the updates....

    Two months in CA - 2nd milestone

    Its been two months since i joined CA! and im enjoying every moment of it. so thought about setting another milestone and review what i have done in the last month and where i stand now.

Special thanks to 'Snake', shiNIN', 'Ramalooke', 'Kiwigarbage' ,'Bethany', 'Sivonja' , 'Kungfoowiz', 'equilerex' and everyone else who has helped me out in someway. Im greatful for your kindness.

    Well, happy two month anniversary my great friend!!!
    Let's open a bottle of something.
    You improved more than I expected I have to admit.
    You are a real hard worked and you deserve this all.
    Very nicely done Milestone billboard, I like it very much.
    This all shows, how serious and dedicated you are in your art journey.
    I am totally proud, and happy to have a buddy like you are.
    Improvement in drawing faces is so obvious. There is still a long
    road ahead of us, but the most important is that you are laying down
    a good and solid foundations.
    Best wishes my friend on your further journey.

    As far as I remember, it's a much more impressive montage than the previous one You're on the right way
    I agree with everything Snake said, I drink one to your health and spirit now

    Yay, Teresa! No, she isn't one of my favourite chars, it's just Alvaro can't draw, I'm his illustrator and he has ideas involving Teresa as his motorbike *sigh*

    The same problem than before, the face is too big for the head. She has a forced smile and her neck and shoulder area isn't well defined.
    But she's definitely pretty and her face is okay for a calm proud one, thanks, I will tell Alvaro, he will be happy

    ChoW#229 :: The Serial Killer - Initial concpets

    Hi everyone,

    @ Snake - Hello there mate. Thanks a lot. It means lot to me. I wish you all the best too mate. Opens up a Champagne. *Cheers*

    @ shiNIN - Hello there my friend. come join us for a drink! Best wishes to you too. btw ill do another good concept for Teresa. ill keep doing it until i get it perfect (or near it). Thanks for everything

    @ poetry man - Hello there. Thanks for visiting my sb mate and for the encouragement too

    Now to the updates.....


    ChoW#229 :: The Serial Killer


    Here goes my humble concept for this week's ChoW. I have included all the fact findings and the justifications. I dont have enough pencil skills or anatomy knowledge yet to design the character i really wanted to . so i kept it within my limitations.enjoy!

    Background story

    She goes by the name 'Tiger Lilly'. Its rumored she leaves a Tiger Lily on the cold dead body of her victims. They say she's an elf and her mother used to torture her when she was a child. Driven mad by pain and anguish she has now become a cold blooded, hunter of night. Person who saw her last mentioned she was camping near the forgotten tower, a place where an evil countess was crucified. He went missing after few hours.

    Character design details and justification.

    1.Environmental setting - Winter/snow ; resembles coldness of her killings.

    2. Tiger Lily - Red-orange color of the Tiger Lily resembles her appetite for killing, basically for pleasure and mental stimulation. through a flower, I also wanted to give a subtle message of 'Every dark cloud has a silver lining'. she may have some good qualities but no one may never know.

    3. Necklace of fingers - She cuts off the thumbs of her victims and attaches them to her necklace. It contains 3 thumbs resembling 3 kills. I also wanted to make one thumb look like its been recently cut off from a victim, and others look like they are decaying, to show theres been 'cool-down' periods between the murders. but i just kept it like this for now.

    4. scars on her cheek - Each scar resembles a kill.

    5. Earing - It bears the symbol Loviatar the maiden goddess who resembles (Pain, Hurt, Agony,Torture and suffering). I just wanted to show shes a patron of Loviatar. (according to Dungeons and Dragons rules)

    6. Circlet- I Made this symbol myself. Crescent resembles night and the three lines for number 3. so its symbolizes 3AM, the unholy hour. ( just wanted to spice up the story)

    7. Weapon - She uses a 'Flail' which is the favored weapon of her deity. Adds to her brutal nature. (according to Dungeons and Dragons rules)

    Fact findings

    I tried to find out more information about serial killers. Do they have any distinctive facial features. well i couldn't come to a clear conclusion because in most cases they all looked normal.

    Know about serial killers before you design.

    I'm not very well today (messing with my sleeping pattern for too long), keep that in mind.

    I think you wish to use some word with the meaning symbolize instead of resemble...

    You know real tiger lilies are bigger, right? It's not a problem, I just mention it.
    I don't think facial features of murderers are important when you design a character - and no face exclude being a murderer even if there are a correlation. I know it's logical to use the face to tell something about the personality but I don't think you need to go that deep.

    The eyes are looking into two slightly different direction...
    I understand the expression of the mouth but it's not realistic looking.

    I don't know the English word... well, where her hair is divided, that's not in center. It's often so in real life but even so, it's disturbing.
    Neck and the little part that she has from her torso is badly attached to her head.

    For the last little while all you've been drawing are heads, and while your head proportions are looking good, you should start moving onto the body.
    exactly, and i think that you should draw a whole bodie instead single parts. it's simply more effective and you will learn faster.

    Happy New Year my friend!
    I wish you all the best in this year!
    You took this character of the week real serious I can see it right from the
    distance. You are a determined one. No one should mess around you, cause
    you have a devastating strength, and you have your 'Snake Charmer' hanging
    by your side. You just keep up this attitude and you will be a pro artist in no
    time.
    She looks dangerous I have to admit, but you are committing the same mistake
    with her eyes, each look in its own direction, shiNIN pointed this out also.
    You should not have to exaggerate those neck muscles so much on every
    drawing. Yes, they are actually there but you do not have to draw them in
    so strong as on some hard core body builder. The cut-off fingers around her
    neck is a nice touch.
    Keep it up like this my friend, thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for the serial killer link collection. You made my day, haha.
    Out of the 10 top serial killers, the number one place is taken by
    a Hungarian. Should I say more?

Well its a small drawing so cant make much changes now. my bad. Ill try to keep those things in mind when i do the next drawing. I focused on the concept, not really the drawing because I cant enter the poll anyways. Ill be starting my anatomy lessons from tomorrow so ill fix this 'neck problem' soon. thanks mate.

    @ Bethany - hello there mate. its been a while eh? good to see you again. hehe yeah 8 pages. even i realized it when you mentioned only. Thanks for the tips mate and i hope youre also gonna try this weeks ChoW as i mentioned in your sb. Ill be moving into the torso muscles from tomorrow onwards. seen enough scary faces eh?

    @ Ramalooke - Aye Aye! Im going back to studies from tomorrow onwards. so ill be drawing some fu*ked up torsos soon! . thanks mate

    @ Snake - Happy New Year to you too! But that was weeks back eh? so Let me guess.....hmm was it vodka? beer? scotch? hehe. Thanks fro the encouragement mate. Glad you like the design. i read about the top 2 till now. I really need to find the book called "The Blood Countess by Andrei Codrescu" man i seriously need to read it! hahah shiNIN's gonna kill you hahahaha i just cant wait to see you getting your as* kicked LOL

    Well moving into the updates...

    ChoW#229 :: The Serial Killer


    Here goes the rendering of the Tiger Lily. Just open up a scotch and say i did a decent job (even if i didnt just pretend for heavens sake ) enjoy!

    (I used 3B and a 4B to shade. scanned and made it duotone, few value changes because my scanner is made to torment me. . 2nd image just and alternative. She looks like 'Hell Girl' to me :p )
