    Great character designs, looking forward to seeing the finished version of this one. Which colours did you end up combining?

    Jondawo: Thanks You can see the colours I chose below!

    More work on this piece. Need to sort out her hands and feet and work out what I'm going to do with the fire on her hands - I don't want it to look cheesy. A fair bit more work to do on other bits, but I feel fairly proud of my progress so far . Her legs are a bit off, but I think that's something I'll have to practice for the next piece at this point.

    Finished this one. I got rid of the fire on the hands and feet because I just couldn't get it to look right, and I thought ashes was a cooler idea anyway. Still not happy with the hands and feet - more practice needed here .

    Looks good! For the fire I think, you should have taken a dark background, so the light of the fire can emanate.

    PontusEuxinus: Thanks Yeah I totally agree - something to learn for next time I think!

    Haven't really been feeling it this week. Stressful time at work means I really want to have a better portfolio together to start applying for art jobs, but my confidence feels really low right now.

    Just a quick doodle - was watching LA Ink at the time so it turned into some kind of tattoo design, heh.

    Some pretty poor thumbnails for a treehouse environment. I'm roughly using references while doing the thumbnails to work out various details which I think is helping me learn a lot. They look pretty bad for how long I spent on them and how drained I now feel though!

    I think you worked out the composition quite nicely on those and I like the way you showed the difference between the strong and diffuse lighting.

    You could try doing some composition studies in thumbnail format from movies still etc. to help you improve

    jondawo: Thank you very much for visiting again . That's a really good idea - will try it out!

    Jaik: Thank you! That link looks really good, much appreciated!!

    Busy week again this week - passed my theory test though! I did some stuff in my sketchbook but difficult to get a good quality photo of it and I don't have a scanner. I've been trying to learn about good composition, which is where I'm really struggling with environments of my own.

    Below is a study from imagination, trying to use 'the golden spiral'. It might not be the best quality but I'm happy I've learnt from it .

    Edit: Woo, page 3!

    Second post in a day - a new one for me! Feeling really inspired by all amazing work in other people's sketchbooks - need to work a lot harder to get there!

    Study of a still from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Really tried to focus on his face and the emotion in it - felt sad painting it ! Also, my apologies to Jim Carrey for messing up his face!!

    Hi there, you have a nice sketchbook here :3 If you're worried about faces I recommend doing lots of studies of head sculls. I think that's one of the best way's of gaining experience on how to draw the head.

    All over stuff looks good :] keep up the good work!

    Hey Thanks for stopping by my SB!
    I really like post #15, #16 and #19
    you can tell the advice from peterhurman worked in your last environment, using them square flat brushes made your edges a lot better and understandable, maybe try some other textures when you've blocked in some basic colour

    I watched a quick video from Feng Zhu today
    (If you haven't watched any of his video's give them a watch they're really helpful),
    he said it helps working from life a lot better to develop ideas because it gives you more knowledge about the way for example an 'environment' works,
    but it's just a suggestion, in need to start painting myself. Keep up the hard work!

    telohs: Thank you

    BenjaminJL92: Thank you for returning the favour! I love Feng Zhu's videos - I only just discovered them! That's a really good suggestion - something to do when it's actually light in the evenings when I get back from work!

    Back to environments. This is from imagination trying to put together a lot of the things I've been learning recently (composition, how to draw the eye to the right places etc). I worked on it for 2 hours - it looks so terrible! I do feel like I'm making SOME progression though! I might continue with it and tidy it up, but I'm not sure if I should just move on to another one and practice my composition first...
