    SketchbOOk

    Hi there !

    So since i need some reviews/critics of my work i will try to post as often as possible my drawing.

    I'm not especially looking for a praise or a good review so feel free to say whatever you want if it's constructive.

    To be honest i think that i'm pretty confident about drawing from a reference but not from mind...
    So for now i'm essentially focused of learning to draw from mind.
    That's why i'm actually doing the Riven Phoenix Course (http://www.alienthink.com/) and since today doing some www.posemaniacs.com 30 & 60 sec poses.

    I'm also learning Digital Painting and quite a newbie in this.

    What i'm looking for is to be able to completely draw from mind a human figure and also drawing fantasy/sci-fi landscape in digital painting.

    If you have some idea of exercises to do for landscape drawing feel free to say it.

    Oh and finally sorry for my clumsy english since i'm not a bilingual

    Ok stop with the talk here some of my work

    Someone gave me some advice to do the gesture studies making sure to use my shoulder instead of my fingers/hand to draw. They are a lot looser and I tend to look at the subject more than the drawing, but I noticed that the flow has greatly improved. It wastes a lot of paper, but I recycle and use pencil, then pen, then marker. Just an idea.

    Your studies on #6 are really nice. Looking forward to seeing you post more.

    Thanks.

    Yeah i know i try to loosen up and draw from shoulder but don't know if actually i draw a little or not with shoulder lol....
    That's why the morning i'm doing some loosen up exercise (drawing line, ovale, square, rond, etc...) with my tablet during like 1hr.

    Sure it's a lot of paper doing this sketch drawing lol that's why maybe unconsciously i'm drawing so small ^^
    Also i'm drawing in pen now that's why my line are so messy :s

    Have you tried the Gesture Drawing Tool? I like it better because you don't get those odd twists that poser makes.

    Don't be afraid to make nice big studies. Sometimes working so small it is hard to really wrap your head around the structure and what makes things look the way they do.

    Don't stop working. You are going in the right direction.

    Hi !
    I wanted to share my opinion about your figure paintings.
    You are definitely going in the right direction, my main recommendation is about the values.
    It's all about the same mid grey value, so try to push the contrast waaaay up.
    See values contrast as a tool to push things in the background or make it pop out.
    Also this texture in the background is quite annoying and you should paint the background in a way that help read the form of your figure and it silouhette ( light against dark and vice versa).
    I have this nice link :
    http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/20...-mumbling.html
    it will help you get better tonal composition and relationship, I am working on this also right now.
    Make studies from the master also and try to understand how they use value as a tool for composition and form sculpting.
    I hope it helps,
    see ya !

    @ Shehaub :

    And yeah you're write i tend to draw small... my big pet peeve/my Kryptonite...
    But i'm kind of a ecologiste too lol
    Well i think i will make some effort in the future ^^

    @ yaniv :

    Ok so for today following Shehaub advise i have try the drawing gesture tool.
    Don't know why but it's seem a little bit harder.
    And also a digital painting while watching the video tutorial of Zhang Lu.
    It's not finished but i will let it be like that. Spend around an hour to do this.
    It was just a training to see and understanding his style and how he draw so there is no need for me to finish it
    (because i was like huh huh were to start to draw a head in digital painting from a photo reference. Don't know why i was so blocked...)
