    Light's Sketchbook, critiques are welcome.

    I'm an aspiring concept artist, and a working comic artist. and recently I have been studying a few recommendation here at fengzhu and some ideas at ctrlpaint.com. My problem is that as someone who's self studying is there some training regimen you could suggest to help organize my study, as if i'm studying at art school? like if you're going to go bodybuilding you have to have a set of specific goals right? some short term and long term one. How about in art? Having so many things that I want to learn paralyses me, but maybe if I could get an organized self curriculum that would help streamline my study? what do you guys think?

    and btw here's my sketchbook as I've been inspired by Mindcandyman

    anyway, enjoy.

    Day 1

    Day 1: so i stopped making excuses and started my first anatomy study from poses. What I'm afraid of is I'm not used to drawing from references, and I'm afraid that I won't get it right. as opposed to having to draw from imagination, I just let my hand do the work. Now I have to train my eye to be exact and precise, and I just think it's too hard. that's why right now I just stopped rationalizing and just did it.

    Sketches 9-12. practiced more sketches from real models. I have a tendency to make heads bigger than they are. I don't wanna cheat by using rulers in photoshop, depending instead on my eyes. any ideas on copying from references?

    other sketches I did on my sketchbook.

    Got a chance to practice anatomy studies again. please bear with me. hehehe I plan to draw 100 poses, just to get the anatomy right. I noticed that when I copy images, I tend to draw the upper body larger than it really is. big heads. tsk tsk.

    and the reason I draw with photoshop is that I don't waste too much paper. But I try to apply traditional techniques with it.

    I agree with Strangedawn with the addition that it seems like you are having fun in your personal pieces.

    @strangedawn thanks kababayan!

    @dan thanks for looking. I appreciate it. Glad you like it.

    anyway here's today's posting. The drawings are not mine, but I've been hired to do the colors for this comic, Princess Reborn, characters by Lee Tidball. I've experimented with color harmony here, made the colors look very 80's. It's my first time coloring a comic book and now that I've got the job this is going to be a learning tool for me in terms of colors.

    will do some sketches later today.

    paintings are nice, the figures look good, but maybe its time for some anatomy studies so you understand the figure better

    @Strangedawn. sadly I'm not allowed to post any more of the comic. It's a work for hire condition you see. hehehe pero salamat.

    @Rem thanks for looking. Yes, I really need to do that. my goal is to do my first 100, but the coloring job is nearing the deadline so I have to do that first. which explains the lack of update in the last few days. I'm taking advantage of the job to study color harmonies, to maximize my focus on art.

    again thanks for looking guys.
    Hello and Nice to meet you.
