    Ain't Nothin' Changed

    Howdy everybody.

    I've been creepin' on this site for a while now whenever I need to gather up the motivation to draw, which I never fail to find. There are a ton of amazingly talented people on here, and I hope they'll all find their way in here to tear my stuff apart.

    A little about myself: I have a BA in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, and I am now attending the Masters of Digital Media program at Great Northern Way Campus in Vancouver, BC. I'm interning this summer as a Technical Artist at Microsoft Game Studios, which is unbelievably awesome.

    On to the drawings:

    Damn good start to a your sketchbook man!
    These pencils look great, i'm loving your hatching technique.

    Can't wait to see more!

    P.S.

    Put a link to your sketchbook in your signature from the User Contol Panel so it appears under your name when you post in other threads. That'll make it a helluva lot easier to visit your work

    Thanks guys!

    Here's one from life and a watercolor from a little while back. You may notice that I have no idea what's going on inside shoulders. I need to look into that.

    No longer safe for work!

    Eesh, that poor girl needs a sammich. That aside, I really like the watercolor. The shadows are a bit off (the blue under her right breast, which I think is supposed to be a highlight color, comes across more as a mis-placed shadow), but other than that I like the colors you chose and the way her hand is just hovering there.

    Yeah, the shadows aren't quite right on the torso on that one. I usually put 90% of my work into face and hands and in that case I think I rushed the torso a bit. I struggle with patience a lot.

    Here's another graphite, and one of my lamentable attempts to come to terms with digital painting:

    More stuffs.

    An oil from a little while back, another graphite, and some life drawing.

    Actually, when I say graphite, I usually mean a combination of general's 555 layout pencil and mechanical pencil.

    Wish I had more time for oils, but stay tuned for more struggles with digital.

    Not a lamentable effort at all on that digital. Could use some hard edges to help define that form a little more clearly though, try grabbing that background color and using a hard round brush to run along the outside edge of the form to clean it up and make it pop

    Man I love your hatching technique with that graphite! And this oil looks great

    Can't wait to see more.

    Great start! I love it when people don't go all out digital, a suggestion with the digital is to take Elliptical tool --> make a round shape on your canvas --> Paint you midtone or w/e in the round shape --> then go over and watch your layers, and then lock that layer. By doing this you will be able to only paint inside your circle and keep your round shape clean... Just a small suggestion
    Anyways, keep it up, really great start as said!

    Ogihara I admit to trying that -- It seemed like cheating so I stopped. I do think the lasso tool will have a large place in my digital future, though.

    MBK Just like with real paint! good call.

    Rist, Jason Scanlon, rastaray thanks!

    Here's some life drawings from tonight, from 2 min to 20 min. I struggle with pacing myself on these. Have to work fast, but not stress and hurry.
