Pundt: Thanks! I'll try and finish it in coming weekend. I haven't even looked at it since I posted it here, so that when I have time to work on it again I can (hopefully) see it with fresh eyes.
Thanks for your comment!
Z01ks: thanks. Oh heck no. My brushes consist mostly of Jaime Jones brushes, supplemented by various fine art type brushes that I have picked up whereever I come across them.
I do have few of my own creations in there as well but they really are a minority.
I love your brushwork. Comparing your stuff from the beginning of the sketchbook to the more recent studies your strokes have really loosened up a lot and for the better. It really adds a lot more atmosphere and whatnot. Your portrait studies have really improved too, though I'd love to see more actual figure studies like you do with the Sargent portraits!
Kojot: Thanks! I really really should but especially during the week where I have about one hour to do artsy stuff studies are just more convinient. and I get to learn new stuff which is always awesome.
Eraiasu: hey thanks! glad you liked em.
Defiled visions: Thanks! Love your work!
Velocity Kendall: AWESOME! thanks!
Iceburn: Lovely stuff! you should definately start your own sketchbook.
Foxboy: HAHA! yes, yes he is. a very long sharp and pointy middle finger.
Matindas: thanks. Honestly I think it's just mostly about trying to figure out what is the most efficient/simplest way to paint something.
that often involves a biggest brush you can get a way with and direction of your brush stroke.
Really trying to confront my troubles with perspective head-on. Hence the armored vehicles. To be hones, I have never been musch of a machine/car person.
That stuff just never interested me, but I feel like I need to draw things where perspective is something you just can't ignore.
Great job with this sketch, even though it's simplified, it shows a good knowledge about armor designs and metal and the hinted holes in the mask look really nice! I also like the way you soften edges on some of the portraits and the edge treatment on the foggy mountain studies!
Perspective studies are a welcome deviation from your comfort zones and I hope to see more stuff like the space ship! It could have used a cast shadow and some shading on the windshield to pop out more though.
