    Another picture ive been working on. It's annoying, because im used to shading metal with pencils not photoshop =S. I intend to colour it, but i tried and it didnt work out. Im also having trouble blending the shades.

    This is a study of colour and form i did of a photo i took. I picked about 10-12 main colours from the original (added more where neccesarry) and drew it with the image next to it in photoshop. Im pretty happy with it seeing as i didnt trace or anything, its just looking. Not fully detailed, because, as i said its just a study. The original photo had alot of texture, would be really hard to draw picture perfect lol

    Hey thanks for the comment on my sketchbook. Great to see you've come over from Deviantart, so have i actually. The sketchbook's here are mainly for your own motivation, post here everyday with your studies life drawings and painting etc. then hopefully attract from attention and get feedback. The best way to get feedback is to comment on other peoples sketchbooks with helpful information and critique other peoples work, genuinely critique, the difference between CA and DA are the people. Here's an interesting article to get you started. So keep that in mind when posting on people sketchbooks.

    Also here are some of the common tools that people use for daily studies and the like.
    Posemaniacs 30 seconds pose drawing tool

    Pixellovely photo references for life drawing for people and animals

    Hope that helps, lets see more work from you, work hard and lets see some improvement.

    Hey again everyone. Ages since i posted any drawings, cause of lack of modivation and artistic confusion (a really silly situation whereas my perfectionism and preconcieved notions of drawing essentially stunt me and disable me from drawing freely)

    But ive done some more stuff now, mainly i did lots of sketches using the 30 second figure drawing website the kind individual above me gave me.

    First is a quick drawing i did before i went to bed.

    This is a drawing i started ages ago, but got sick of and left it. Ive picked it back up with a more open minded perspecteve, and just wanted to show it as-is. Theres many things that needs to change, but mainly i think the in between space thats grass is too empty and needs to be shorter, or rather the figure needs to be closer.

    welcome to CA dude

    nice start !
    so you want to advance as artist.... SO STOP READING THIS AND GET BACK TO DRAWIIIIIIIING ! hahhaa i'm kidding coz i'm sure you're drawing while reading this.
    if not you should. post more studies, studies studies studies. you should concentrate on lines , do lines many lines, tons !

    the last portrait is pretty nice, i don't really understand why she is so blacked. perhaps it's a complex lighting situation. try to chosse one light situations and focus on lines before doing shading. to advance in one subject, portrait for example, you must do like 100 of them within a time limit. speed will make you draw more focused and spontaneous.

    good luck and don't forget to post tons of works.

    Nice start! I just have a few critiques for you; I like that rock study you did, though I would recommend that you definitely do try and do the texture, even if it seems hard---it doesn't need to be 'picture-perfect' but focusing on the hard things in images that you may want to skip will be beneficial, and you will learn from it!

    One other thing I noticed is that you're using fairly small brushstrokes. I'd recommend working a lot larger at and at around 100% opacity to 60% (going lighter as you blend), and going smaller as you detail.

    Also, in that last artwork you posted, the foreground and particularly the grass is extremely bright for a moonlit scene. (And where is that paper coming from? )

    I'd also recommend doing some anatomy studies, environment studies and some still life studies.

    Anyway! Great start! I hope that was helpful-- just practice and you'll get there! Can't wait to see your progress.

    Thanks so much for the comment =]
    Yeah ive been struggling with opacity - too low and the image gets streak marks =O lol. And i need to do alot more fully committed studies, i gotta get modivated haha

    i dont remember if i commented on urs (i probly did but still) ur sketchbook is really good! =] soo much practice there, it makes my soul itch how little i do in comparison xD

    oh and with that image, well err...i really didnt want to post it cos its not really understandable yet hahaha, but basically its meant to be a sunny day, and this persons opened up a (portal?) or something into a moonlit scene, and theyre trying to draw the foreground person toward them (vampire-ish theme, they cant get into the sun, its persuasion not force). but im finding it hard to portray the sunnyness without showing a sun, but i cant cos of the angle =O lol
    and the paper..err..well the wings of that angel thing r meant to be fake, and the parts that are getting hit by the sunlight are dispersing into paper displaying their fakeness..iff that makes sence xD

    ANYWAY sorry about that haha and thanks again, the feedbacks really nice =]

    Custom brushes (ie, leaves, grass) = Big No no!!

    A round (of flat) brush is alll you need. Also, judging by the last picture, you used the blur tool for the edge of the grown and horizon. Also big nono!

    The blur tool and brushes takes away from what could be a really nice painting!

    Anyways, keep it up with those studies and keep going!
