    My Sketchbook

    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.

    Landscape

    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.

    nice landscape, but is a bit too blurry dont you think? : ) same with portraits... bring the definition !

    Thank you.

    Sorry for asking this, what do you mean by bring in the definition? Is the resolution size? (for some reason my images tend to get blown up o_o;, so I have to double check on that next time I submit)

    Ooh, those are nice compositions. My favourite's the top right.

    As for definition -- I'm guessing that Rem might have meant that your portraits seem pretty blurry and soft. Some harder lines and more details would improve this.

    @America200: Thank you very much!

    @Umbravita: Ahh I see now, so I might have to experiment with the harder brushes. Thanks!

    Here is some speed-painting studies I've done over the summer, here's one as an egg (at least I tried to make look egg-shaped). Sorry for the big image.
