    Abstractlands by takashmen

    Hi, everybody!

    first of all it should have been takashimen but i missed "i" while typing nick unfortunately

    setting up this sketchbook has many reasons the most important is improving in:

    1. anatomy -> chracter design
    2. watercolour
    3. digital painting

    so let's start, 5 first attached works are created some months before, every of them is support with refs and i decided to resign from using references and build a library in my head by studying photos and life stills

    the very first one of them is inspired by Sparth art.

    also i started messing with gesture drawing and it will be great if you leave some comments about them ( i'm following Hampton) but don't know unless Loomis is better

    and at least photo study
    all critic and comments welcome!

    @EDIT all moved to second post

    honored being an inspiration
    one advice for you to go forward with your art: for readability purposes, try showing a bit less of the big brush strokes, as they tend to interfere with how the image is being read. best is to blink your eyes, and determine better what's going on with the flow of your image. for example it will be helpful to smooth some of the areas where you think these strokes are overwhelming.
    the best idea is to put a hierarchy with your shapes. first imagine the big shapes and volumes of your image, and then second think about the detailing within these shapes. but if, at any moment, the detailings you add are too important, to the point of not seeing the big shapes any more, then go backwards or fix the issue. i hope it makes sense

    have fun on these!

    @sparth- thank you for advice i really appreciate it

    @teapo - they are coming

    here's another photo study ( teaching a lot about smoothing edges)

    i'm not fully satisfied with it, but it's high time to leave it and pass to the next.
