Thread: Cashmate's sketchbook
November 1st, 2011 #1
So I've finally decided to make a sketchbook after weeks of lurking.
I am 18 years old and I haven't taken any real art classes, so I'm a true amateur. I've always liked drawing but I never really took it seriously or tried to improve. 3 months ago, that changed. I've finally decided to get good at painting, but I've been lacking some motivation to finish my pieces and learn to more.
My hope is that by creating this sketchbook, I'll get more motivation and in the same time get help by you guys.
My goal is to upload something worthwhile every day or every two days.
So here is some of my most recent sketches/experiments.
Sorry for the massive size of the pictures. :/

Hi Cashmate! Welcome on CA! nice paintings!
after you're finished I suggest you save your work in another file that's 800x600 so everyone sees it in one take!

I'm having trouble making water look good. Is there any easier way of making the waves/blur on the water than just using a small brush?
Critique is much appreciated.

I would really like to get some critique on my crap. Any tips for getting better? Where is my weakness?
Used reference for the upper one.

Hey sounds great man and you have some promising work there (I like the colors) but i think you should size your pics down a bit, right now it“s kinda hard to see them
*Edit* O right someone already said that, my bad. Pics looking good though

Nah the last one are just the right size. Np m8 having some place to post your pictures is always a great way to encourage your artistic side
Just started a sketchbook here too, kinda new to CA but hopefully I will be able to keep it updated.

Can somebody please critique my stuff? Tell me what looks bad so I can improve faster.

Well the first one i really like, i guess you could break up some of the foliage a bit more on.
The second one looks nice but it needs more depth and the rays looks a bit to visible?
Not very good at critique but i hope you will get something useful out of that
