Thread: My Sketchbook
July 28th, 2011 #1
I had this account awhile, I'm still kinda new to CA and I wanted to post some stuff that I've done in school and some on my spare time.
The first image are a series of thumbnails of composition exercises. I had to choose one blow it up, and create an imaginary landscape with it, with the help of references.
I'm still trying to figure how to post more than one image. Sorry about that.
EDIT: I might do another sketchbook entry regarding NSFW (life studies, figure drawings, since I couldn't edit the title, still new this forum)
Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Here's the final of the landscape assignment, I had to take one the thumbnails, and blew it up and work on the composition. My instructor told me that I should add texture to the rocks and added more shadows.

Some old digital painting masterwork studies of Courbet's works (before I've taken any digital painting class). I kept relying on the blur tool and smudge tools a lot.
Again, I'm still learning. If anyone has some feedback or some tips, let me know. I still want to keep improving on my digital painting skills.

Character design thumbnails, I'm going back and revisit this after receiving some feedback and taking notes from the crit post I've done WAAAAY back.
And now some dooding stuff I do for fun:
Some sketches trying to do the DAC's Shape Challenge, I might revisit this, sorry about the photo quality ><:
Some fanart that I might redo again.
It's a WIP tribute piece to Tomoko Kawakami, who died from cancer. I grew up watching Utena.
(I really need to fix Soi's arms, it's bugging me a lot, any crits are helpful)
A possible concept, still brainstorming this.
I need to see if I can find my hand sketches and post them here, I really need to back to drawing hands since that's one of my weak points along with drawing feet.

Thanks for passing by my SB! You've got some awesome stuff here
Only thing I could recommend is to try and stop using the soft brush/airbrush all together because your paintings look a bit blurry. You improved on the egg and rocks pics, but still both look a tad blurry. Just eliminate the brush completely and try to blend using only the hard brush.
Keep it up!

As for the brush opacity, I agree, and I tend to chicken out on it, but I'll try to experiment with hard brushes and see what happens.
Some more sculpture "sketches."
and a unfinished drawing, I might revisit this one as well, didn't like the pose since it was too stiff.

Fun stuff, I like the dress studies in 18, and wish it was a bigger picture.
Keep working on the fundimentals and you'll get where you want to - you've got some fun ideas in here.

Looking good! I like many of your character designs. I guess the only critique I have is to try and bring some more dynamism to your characters. Right now they seem a little dead. Other than that though everything is looking great. Look forward to seeing more!

Disappeared again, finished school and now freelancing, but expect a HUGE update. Thanks for the comments Nelchee and Jellyswirl!
@Nelchee: Yeah, I have to agree with you about the earlier images since I was trying to figure out how to load them here. XD
