    Icon Dolmens Chat with paper...(Sketchbook)

    Hey guys

    Im a hobby artist trying to get into the career I love. Been rather relaxed till recently when I decided this was what I wanted to do. Decided I needed to start putting more effort into whatever Artwork I do.

    thus I put the tablet away and got back to sketching. as a result I'm setting up this sketchbook. I have received sooo much advice In the short time I've been here. So I think I'll get better the more time I invest in tuts and classes offered here. Heres where I plan to post up the things I put together via those tuts along with any personal work I come up with as I develop.:

    The first 2 images in the first post are great, solid anatomy/values there as far as I can tell. They seem much more refined than the other 3. At this point I can't think of much to crit, maybe something to keep in mind though is to vary line weight. Making them bolder in shadows/important areas and thinner elsewhere, that kind of thing.

    You're already off to a good start, just keep working and keep posting

    hey dolmen it's good that you're doing studies...though I distinctly recall humans having more ribs than that!

    you have interesting ideas - I like the hooded ninja (?)

    don't forget to draw people from life also.

    Nice work - especially the lady in your first post looks great! Be careful not to make the heads too big though - but that's hard to tell because many of the other sketches wear helmets/hoods.

    Just keep drawing if you continue to spend as much time and effort as you seem to spend on your conpleted pieces we will see mass improvement in no time.

    I think we give music video artist little credit for their vision. I've been trying to make my studies more challenging, I sat down and watched a few music channels and decided this would be a good way to practice, emulating their Ideas in a graphic format is now my pre work goal. Might make a good collection for my protfolio. The key to the challenge is not to eat away time from my legit projects and work soooo

    Rules:

    everything I post will be an hours worth of time. digitally or via pencil work.

    I will jump to a new genre of music each hour I sit down for this and will post whatever I come up with.

    I will try do atleast one piece a day.

    heres my first draft:

    Name:  SURE THING.jpg
Views: 121
Size:  203.5 KB
    Genre: RnB??? can never really tell

    Its inspired by Miguel's "sure thing" and Taio Cruzs "dynamite" music videos

    the BG colour scheme is pretty hack n slash but had to focus on the main figure, its incredibly rough but I had tons of fun trying to listen, watch and paint. kept my senses active and challenged my own sense of concept.

    next Genre: (Alternative) ROCK!

    Name:  WHO I REALLY AM.jpg
Views: 105
Size:  181.5 KB

    inspired by a music by Linkin Park, evanescence and blink 182

    each character took about 10 mins. best part? mecha drums, worst part? lighting is rushed and gimmicky.
