    a few selfportraits, i tried to do them really fast just to get the main things down fast and simple, i think they came out too cartonish
    Whoa whoa hang on, simple and correct does not mean fast. Take your time in the construction stages, make extra super sure everything is right. You may not be making many lines, but that doesn't mean you should think or take less time than if you were using tons of lines and detail. simple or economic =/= easy or fast. Here's a link I guess.
    I'm always drawing too fast so maybe I'm the wrong person to tell you this, but be patient with your drawings. Quality over quantity. Just make sure you have a whole ton of quantity to put the quality over and you'll improve quick.

    Sarmati - thanks mate!

    p sage - yes! i felt like that was happening, it was an effort to go back to personal stuff other than studies, but i think im getting there

    K uroi - hahha yes i hope for improvement, i cant really tell myself tho. thanks

    Vertical - i was thinking about that for a while. but what im felling is like this. im always shooting for prescision instead of timing. but i always take forever in everything. so like if fyou running a 10k, you wont always just practise 10k, some times youll do sprints or 15, 20k so you can improve faster at the 10k. im not only shooting for speed, but to get stuff fast sort of ok, so when i take my time i can do good and not only ok.
    all said, im just experimenting, im still a noob, so ill see if it works for me

    anyway, too many days passed, too little was done. i have this piece that im doing, and its taking me forever, but it isnt datail at all. im like a turtle in a world where cheetas (and the speedpainting) is the rockstar. but oh well, ill shoot for quality first.

    You said in it an amusing way
    I can relate. I feel like a hibernated frog, usually.

    I like your doodle faces.
    The figures occassionally have a bit short torsos and the legs could be more shapely but practice will help, keep it up.

    so life study, and direct applying it to shitty ideas
    Oh it's not a shitty idea, good practice but you need more contrast there, things somewhat blend together, it would look much more cool if the head would be lighter or something.

    shiNIN - haha yes! and yes!!! practise always helps!!
    and about the face being too dark, its totally true, i was working lately on a LG monitor, which was quite dark, and yesterday i switched to my mac screen, its way ligter, so i was, "its to briiiiight" and everything ended up quite dark

    Jesse-james-sutton - hah yeah i use both, plus bammes and kchen, i think none of them is enough by them selfs, plus you would only get 1 style. what ive been realiing is that style is not only lines, but placement and proportions also.

    but anyways, here a lilttle(probably the longest thing from imagination ive done) thing. it took me forever because i dont do enough of those so i have to figure out every step of the way.
    my computer needs a rest now.

    i have no clue how it looks anymore, please give me feedback

    Hi there matey

    Thank you very much for the SB visit, your comments were much appreciated.

    If I was to crit anything in your work it would be your massive need for speed!! slow it down and observe the subjects, lighting and colours. You are pushing yourself so hard that the rushing is coming into the drawing, calm down dude! LOL
    The anatomy of the figures and characters is ok but you need to take a step back and work on faces, they are not as sharp as the characters you do.

    Other than that mate there is good progress throughout the SB good going mate and keep it up.

    all the best to you and thanks again.
    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    Wow, just since March your improvement is ridiculous man. Looking good.
    I especially love that one of the guy wearing the tie. Super sweet.

    Think a lot of your stuff could be wicked if you pushed it to the same level as well btw.

    Looking good though, keep improving like this and you'll be awesome in no time!!




    Oh, btw, that thing you said you did for your sister or whatever. Absolutely awesome. Gotta work on my pencil stuff. I'd love to be able to do stuff like that. Well done!

    Thanks for the comment dude! Nice work on that imagination. piece. I think it might be better if the were in the middle or something. the composition looks very centered like a propaganda poster, but she has different lighting and colors and is in a pose that doesn't appear have any relation to the scene way on the left edge of the canvas. It almost looks like you copy-pasted her there from another picture. The different colors and values could work really well actually, like make her a step up from the guy's face in back of her to separate them.
    Putting her in the center would work in another way too, they face guy is supposed to be watching, but he's looking at us and maybe I'm reading this wrong I think he's supposed to be looking at her, so putting her directly in his gaze would be better
    Come to think of it, what is the relationship between these two? my first impression was that they were enemies, but her being his minion would make sense too.

    Um. Ya. Keep up the good work!

    wasabi89 - , ja mandei inbox la no face. valeu muito

    Lightship69 - thanks a lot mate! ive been realizing that slowly trough out the last two weeks, and now you tell me that. so ive been slowing down consiously, i think its working pretty good. really big thanks

    JakeB - haha thanks a lot. i think what you said goes along with working slower, but also pushing it father. ill try to push think to the next level, because thats how its doooone!!!!!

    Vertical - thanks man. im so happy with what you said, its the impression that i was striving for. it does have a background story. its from the book Hunger Games (theres a movie coming out soon) and its about sort of a dictatorship. so i though of the book 1984 and how they had the bigbrotheriswatchingyou propaganda, but mixed the story into it, with the protagonist trying to break out of it.

    so heres some stuff

    lol from deviantart, silly meme

    and a funny looking study, i think i know what went wrong. i started doing proportions and shapes, but only the outlines, when i went on the insides i only focused on colors and proportions got screwed up. i have to go very slowly and do 1 thing at a time.

    That's a cool piece of sketchbook u got there

    You have to have very good imagination since you can draw 50 different characters in one go, I'm jealous

    Maybe do some longer environment studies or some cool places from imagination? Would like to see it!

    thanks for the comments guys

    waa, im just gonna dump this here
    its Raizen from yuyuhakusho, i love that manga.
    i keep getting all faces wrong. i feel that the sketches are always pretty good, but wheni start to paint everything just goes to shit. i think i need to study faces, but not like i used to do, i should do more ful on render studies. i feel like my line stuff on faces is pretty solid, but when i need to render or paint it its crap, so ill work on that for now
