    The steampunk girl: For example, fingers are things of tendon, skin and bone, not just blobs of dough.
    Try to give your character a better sense of overall construction, it will have a greater impact and look more convincing.
    The human body is a mix of hard and soft forms. If it helps, divide your characters different parts into simpler forms and faces.
    What I meant with line contour is to have a greater control with your overall line I think, go wild with forms once in a while. I think Croquis is good for that.
    The Poe looks good.

    Keep it up man!

    Ramalooke: Hmmm... yeah, my teacher actually said the same thing. Maybe I need to find an even darker pencil

    Rotor: Yeah, the steampunk girl was kind of a work from an older piece... it kind of needs a ton more work Will get to it though!

    -------------------
    -------------------

    This week's Artist of the Week! goes to MatejaPetkovik!

    If you actually look at the overall work that he's put into his work from beginning to end... it seems completely consistent in both skill and expertise. This guy seems pretty much AAA in my opinion. Not only that, but he seems equally focused on traditional and digital at the same time! Keep up the good work!!!
    Hahaha, so apparently during the whole Haunted House thing that happened before... a bunch of the 'scarers' got beat up randomly. Like the people that were in the House got so freaked out by them that they actually punched out of reflex. Either they did an awesome job at the Haunted House, or the people that went are extremely violent.

    Let's see... so I've been experimenting with new things involving art, mainly just digital painting now that I've found a good brush to use. You can see below... OH! And I finished my animation mid-term... that will also be below.

    Here's probably what you've all come for, the art:

    Here we go again... more and more art over and over!


    This week's Artist of the Week! goes to Ben_Olson over on concept art!

    Not only is this artist impressive with their varying style, but they have a great tendancy to delve into the realms of strange and weird. His art tends to have this almost watercolor look to it with the stylistic flourishes of his digital paints. Not only that, but he seems to have good control over his pencil work as well... if you look on the last page of his sketchbook (posted above), he has some gestural drawings as well from life. This guy seems to have a great grasp on it all. Keep it up!
    ----RESPONSES----
    ---------------------

    tronrobot: Thanks! I'm actually working on the next one now, you can see it below!


    Ben_Olson: Thanks so much! I love your style and will possibly try to emulate that in some paints!

    Ramalooke: Finished! And there it is below...

    ---------------------
    ---------------------

    Thanks for the responses folks! I will always respond to every one of them per post!

    So this week has been filled with work... mainly really delving into digital painting hard! You'll see some of the experiments that I've been doing below. Maybe some critiques would do me well.

    Life Drawing at MCA has come to a close yesterday, so unfortunately I'll have to start just doing my own drawings on the side (even though I do that already).

    Either way, I'll probably just go ahead and dive right into the post as I have a ton of work to get done.

    Here we go...

    Character of the Week #267 - The Dryad

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Character of the Week #267 - The Dryad
    Date: November 3, 2011
    Medium: Photoshop
    Scale: Original is 8" x 10"

    Notes: The final design for the Character of the Week contest. I still need to get a better grasp of the digital painting idea, but I'm proud of myself for actually finishing one when there is finals coming up!

    Life Drawing - 15 minute

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Life Drawing - 15 minute
    Date: November 1, 2011
    Medium: Graphite / Conte
    Scale: 8.5" x 11" Gunmetal Grey Card-Stock

    Notes: Still a work in progress (need to finish the shading all throughout).

    Roberto

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Roberto
    Date: November 7, 2011
    Medium: Ink
    Scale: 5" x 7"

    Notes: We actually used a regular old stick that we found, carved it into a brush type shape and then painting with ink on paper. It was a very unique and interesting concept for me and I think I might try doing more of this...

    Portrait Series: H. G. Wells (in progress)

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Portrait Series: H. G. Wells (in progress)
    Date: November 6, 2011
    Medium: Graphite / Conte
    Scale: 8.5" x 11" Gunmetal Grey Card-Stock

    Notes: My next portrait in the series: H. G. Wells. It will be done in the same style as before.

    Digital Paint Practice: Zephyri

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Digital Paint Practice: Zephyri
    Date: November 7, 2011

    Hey Kaminski, thanks for the post on my SB sorry about the untimely response.

    It's good you're painting studies, but you really need to plot out the size and location of your elements more and take a step back before refining them. In the last post the positions and sizes of the eyes and mouths on those referenced pics really throws off your work compared to the reference itself.

    There's improvement, but focus on blocking in the basic shapes, then stepping back and making 100% sure your elements are in the right place before continuing. Flip your image often to get a fresher perspective on what you've been toiling over. Keep going.

    Here's another of those famous writers finished...
    I present to you:

    Portrait Series: H. G. Wells (Finished)

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Portrait Series: H. G. Wells (finished)
    Date: November 9, 2011
    Medium: Graphite / Conte
    Scale: 8.5" x 11" Gunmetal Grey Card-Stock

    Notes: This is the final of the H.G. Wells piece. The second in a series of famous writer portraits. I think there will be eight in total. Just trying to do a natural progression in the graphite / chalk / conte direction.

    ----RESPONSES----
    -------------------

    BlightedArt: Hey hey BlightedArt, no big deal at all... I just thank you for taking the time to give me a critique

    I agree with the painting studies... I was really just speed painting and trying to see if I could do my paints without any linework. It shows that I failed hahaha, but it was still fun to make an attempt. I think I need to just stick with the tried and true method of blocking in my shapes and making some underlying line work before diving into the paint itself.

    Those were literally done in about 15 - 20 minutes each, just drawing as fast as possible.

    Thanks for the critique though, I'll follow through on future attempts by doing it the right way

    DStraX: Yeah, I couldn't agree more, I suppose just like I said to BlightedArt, it shows that I failed in my attempt to just straight up digital paint. I will make amends though More paints to come.

    Thanks for the advice though, every little bit helps!

    -------------------
    -------------------

    Thanks a bunch guys, these crits will help loads! I'll think about them during my next paint session.

    Until next time...

    Never heard of Shogun, very nice stuff!
    When doing digital painting, think in fields of values or faces of form in relation with light. If you aren't careful what you will get is muddy values which will break the illusion of a three dimensional object and perhaps give it unwanted texture.
    If I sound too harsh at times you can come and slap me, I'm only trying to help to the best of my ability.
    I really like the writer portraits, each shows improvement and they will look nice as a whole.
    Keep it up man!

    I really like your graphite and chalk drawings, but try to focus on the volume and mass of the faces as well as proper shape and silhouette. Long story short, pay attention to what are the spaces in between the shapes.

    It's been a rough few days... FULL OF WORK!!

    ----RESPONSES----
    ---------------------

    Rotor: Thanks! I love finding obscure music and trying to help make it more widestream. I think everyone should go and check out Mind.In.A.Box on Youtube. His music is amazing!

    Don't ever worry about sounding too harsh it only makes sense that you would critique in a way that would really get your point across. You actually helped me a bit for this newest digital work. Digital paint seems to be a weak point of mine still.

    Anyway, thanks for the input!

    I have plans for ten more writers... So I guess I have my work cut out for me in that department, but those are put on hold until I get done with my schoolwork...

    Sarmati: Thanks! I think I improve actually on every one of these portraits I do, so I'll have to keep this in mind when I work on the next one.

    ---------------------
    ---------------------

    Thanks guys!

    I've been powering down all sorts of stuff, such as school work and personal work.
    I've actually done a few drawings and also gotten pretty heavy into digital painting (I have to do this on my own as they don't really teach this stuff at school).

    I AM X finally came out with a new album... I'd actually really like all of their albums. It's sort of this industrial, trip-hop vibe going through the whole thing.

    School has been hectic and hopefully I'll come out of it unscathed, even though I don't see myself stopping any of this anytime soon.

    There's a show going on this weekend (The Memphis College of Art Holiday Bazaar). I kind of wish I'd put some work in it, as I think my work would fit well. The unfortunate thing that I run into, is the price gauge. I never know really what to gauge my work as for prices. Maybe next year, yeah?

    This week's Artist of the Week! goes to Simon Loche over on !

    This artist actually has been an inspiration to my work recently. They seem to have a very stylistic approach to the way they do their work, and I'm trying to imitate the style. I absolutely love it! Not only that, but they have an extreme variance in their work overall, going from childish paintings, all the way to complex and extremely adult themed pieces. Every piece seems unique and shows the skill overall of this artist. I would say that they use both traditional and digital in their pieces, but I can't be completely certain. Either way, amazing work, keep it up!
    Anyway... time for this post and then MORE WORK!!
