    You have nice dynamic lines and an imagination. On your more finished pieces you're missing that sense of reality you only get from studying life - and that doesn't mean a photo of an apple - get a real apple and plonk it down next to your computer. I did tons of vegetables (actually planned the weeks menu around what would make good subjects). No excuses, get to it.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Sup man. I really like the way you added texture at the end to the center of your chow piece. Try to render at least one little piece of each work to keep your rendering moving.
    Cool stuff...just keep doin what you r doin man

    Very nice dude. The last concept sketch looks pretty good. That would make one hell of an environment.

    I really took this to heart, thank you so much for the kind words also.
    So you ate what you drew eh? lol sounds awesome I may try that soon, I eat a lot of junk though

    but you're right about the finished pieces, they're never ... idk... i always look at the pros and some of the guys in the community activities are amazing, i am really envious of so many artists.

    Any more advice on life drawing? anyone? It is just draw what you see right? lol

    OH and i did not paint this from a photo ref, not any of the photos above... i think photo ref may have been easier. i think i'm better with those. especially when i grid the ref... but idk how other artists feel about gridding... it's all just about learning

    aaaand here's a buncha other stuff, Loomis studies.

    You call hamburgers steamed hams?

    Haha.

    Anyway, good new work man, the loomis studies are looking good keep them up, and the apple isn't bad either, next time try putting it on something dark, or something, it's always easier to bring out the colours when it's balanced with a dark background.

    Great. Now you know what you have to learn to improve - it's called looking, really looking. The more you look, the more you see. Drive yourself mad doing it - it's the only way.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Hey thanks man glad you like it, and I appreciate the kind words!

    so guys... my laptop was in my backpack which fell off a hook like 4 feet... the edge is cracked but the screen is in tact and I'm using it right now, so no functional problems so far... Also been really lazy and busy lately... mostly lazy. Told my self I'd start up digital work again when Wacom's new driver for the Intuos4 comes out. Last one was August 7th. For no particular reason either just a non controlled date of mine and I'd also be able to re-install the tablet I was having trouble with the right clicking before...

    anyways, anyone have something similar happen with their laptop? could use some advice.

    Also just discovered this band called Capsule



    And some daft punk too... anyone know any bands like these but crazier? I love DaftPunk but I find myself wanting their songs to just EXPLODE like half-way through like it could be so much crazier...

    I'm liking this repetitive techno bass babble shit lately..

    hey there,i like your latest designs a lot. like kasblue said, they're looking pretty creative
    i'm sorry for the laptop accident. anyway, i'm really not the person who listens to techno but if you're looking for some nice bass you'd probably like (or hate,lol) this (maybe skip to 0:55 if you don't wanna hear the intro)
    cheers

    Hey Shahan, looking through your sketchbook I am really impressed. Your characters are really dynamic, and you have a great sense of 3D form! I do think Black Spot was very right about drawing from life being a path of growth for you. I can see a contrast in how you handled painting the apple, compared to the dynamism and confidence of your figure drawing from imagination. Try to bridge the divide between these two parts of your brain! I think you will notice over time, as Black Spot said, a great difference in how grounded and real your drawings will appear. Also, the things you see in real life will start affecting your drawings from imagination to a much greater degree.

    Anyway, all the best and I look forward to seeing you reach your next plateau!

    great focus in here! i would stay keep pushing yourself with the drawing basics and really build that visual vocabulary by focusing on observational drawing. in the character designs tuff, try to think about the silhouette and creating distinct shapes that differentiate the simplest forms.

    What Aryeh said. Also post the pictures from the videos as we don't all have time to view them.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
