    Thomas M. Sketchbook - Alla Primal

    Update: Hey my names Thomas Mahon, I'm from London UK, I'm 18 and just about to leave school. Instead of going to a university or something to get an art degree I've decided to take the completely self taught route, so I'll be studying every day for 2 years, going to make a timetable soon and start testing it out. Since I've started this thread I feel i've made some big improvement, and I thank the Crimson Daggers community for pushing me to improve.


    my older stuff can be viewed here: www.mahons.deviantart.com incase you're interested. This thread will be a progress from now to infinite.

    Great stuff so far! I would very much like to see you replace the axe in the first picture with a lute. That would be hilarious to me.

    With this I tried to do it as fast as possible. I think if I spend too long on a painting it becomes stale and boring to me.

    I'm having a little bit of trouble with the legs, and the design of the animals head, I'm going to play around with it a little bit more. Work in progress ofcourse.

    I think I'm progressing pretty well since I started this journal.

    I looked at a picture of a boxer and tried to reproduce it. It went pretty badly, I got frustrated and gave up. I'll try again with a new boxer tomorow.

    I really like that last pic in the first post, but the elbow mechanism seems kind of awkward when it comes to joint movement.

    Yeah I agreee it's very awkward, wasn't really paying attention to functionality. In the future I'll do more preparation

    I think you have a good eye for for shapes and form, If you were to work some more detail to some of these peices they would epic.

    hey, thanks for the compliment, and yeah I do need to spend more time on the detailing, I get fed up with a piece though. I need more patience definatly. I'm using photoshop Cs3 with an intuous3. I'm using a brush pack called 'Shaddy', although I forgot where I got it from.

    Great work on the life studies, very good use of light and shadow. I'm looking forward to see the other images in your series of one hundred. Keep it up!

    hey man just one suggestion would be to begin your paints with a concept of the space in mind it will help you build your figures for sure. even just in a room or some other object to reference in the space. The bear paint is working the best as a paint an can tell the concept was flowing with space. looks the most effortless.

    Thanks Mike, that's something I was very aware of when I finished the concepts. I just drew a concept and then stuck a background on it, when I drew the bear it was the other way round, I'll take it on board! thanks for the critisism
