    Been neglecting this sketchbook a bit . Going through another phase of feeling a bit demotivated about it.

    Watched one of Feng Zhu's videos for inspiration so tried to do some environment thumbnails from that. Clearly I need a lot of practice! I feel like the sketches are ok, but I messed up adding colour. Think I'll go back and do it in black and white first to get the right values THEN think about colour... Any tips would be much appreciated!

    Went back and shaded the previous thumbnails concentrating purely on values. I think they look better than before, but scared of adding colour now!

    Making up for not posting in a while with three posts in one day . Really feeling back into it!! Continuing the character design I've been doing recently, still rough and sketchy. Trying to explore different designs before I settle on a final.

    Two more character colour sketches. Think I'll pick one of the three and tidy it up to a finished piece.

    Some thumbnails for this weeks E.O.W. Figured I'd give it a go - only way I can improve my environments is practice !

    You could try starting environments just by blocking in random shapes. Means you wont don't always need an idea to start painting. Maybe I'm pointing out the obvious though :p

    The transition to colour is retardedly difficult for me. Either I start in colour or the image is forever in grayscale. I've tried with colour layers but somehow the values always turn out to be off once I add colour (maybe something to look out for).

    Anyway, great job, keep going. Your linework is looking really nice.

    jondawo: Thanks for stopping by ! I think blocking in random shapes is a really good idea - it'll probably help with adding in values and colour too. I think with adding colour it's just hammering it out and practicing more - as always!! Really appreciate the comment .

    pfloyd: Thank you very much!

    Trying out something kind of new. Study of a landscape photo but using a brush with no opacity change. Trying to force myself to just block in the overall shapes and colours and simplify it rather than getting caught up in detail too early. It looks a bit rubbish but I think it was really useful to learn.

    Another long break . I really need to keep my motivation up. Keep slacking off if I have a stressful time at work, but that won't get me anywhere!

    Decided to tackle something I always avoid: animals... Not really sure how to start other than studying from photos/life so just doing some photo studies tonight.

    heey . 'motivation bump here' i don't see any mistakes, but maybe one additional hint is to put the saturation of a piece down to b/w, so you can see if the values are correct (for your environments eg - not that i'm seeing any mistakes!
    your anatomy of your characters looks right so far.. (and i'm practicing and practicing and nothing happens.. D: )
    just keep on practicing and posting regulary (:

    Nianto: Thank you very much for the motivational bump ! That saturation tip is a very good one - I keep forgetting to do it!!

    Loong break, but just wanted to keep my thread on the board because I am actually drawing! I'm doing a big commission for someone and because it's paid for I can't really post the work . With a full-time job I'm not finding much time for my own drawing in between, but here's a quick sketch!

    Congrats on the the commission. Those (big) cat studies are awesome and that latest sketch is right up my alley. Keep up the studies!
