TopSecret yes i am ive done some tafe and still at uni, but in terms of Drawing/Painting no one has taught me anything except for myself. Although i am looking into getting some private classes. Some design i learned in class
err todays efforts, tried not spending too much time polishing work up, trying to stay loose...focus on idea's atm....environments ive barely practiced, they are fun to do tho. Last one is a study. Crits please in dire need of direction xx
just a environment focusing on colours and .....mood i guess the designs fukd (theres no design) but i mite use this as reference for a proper painting. Busy working on some commision some ppl dumped on my ass not long ago and i dont get paid. Yer
environments make me tired for some reason. I will keep practicing at them because im pretty noob. this one was a study but then i just played around with it. The 2nd screenies is from a 3d tutorial. Boring i know, i mite aswell show it. THe aspect ratio of the images got squashed slightly and i cbf fixing it.
working on a plan to make sure im studying wat i shud be studying! i will show it when i have my plan for the first week. i got the plan from a blog, i will link it later for anyone else to try it out
I love how your line work is quickly evolving!
One thing I wanted to add is that you may want to consider strengthening your focal point when it comes to lighting and hard edges. Much of your rendered work feels pretty soft (especially seen in the environments) and I think that putting further emphasis on your lighting would really help bring much of the stronger elements out. Keep pushing, you have something great in the works.
hey! you've got one unique style! i had the same idea with weekly plan -but somehow it got lost - then i did what i thought i should do/the first that came into my mind. i would love to see it, when you've worked it out!

Hey dude, getting better there. I like the painterly approach you've been developing, those quickies are really nice.
Still I suggest a lot of reference studies, really simple, in pencil, to make your proportions and foreshortening better at places. keep it up.
wutangclam thanks no particular exercises....i guess i was just interested in alot of loose techniques from looking at other artists...and at one stage i thought "quantity over quality" which i attempted to draw faster with alot of random strokes. Im trying to slow down now and really learn things proper.
