    Martijn's sketchbook

    Hi people,

    This is my second sketchthread from now on in effort to become a better artist.
    I've been working under the radar for a while thinking i wasn't ready yet..
    now i realise that there will never be a perfect moment to be ready so i might a well start over today.

    dude, not bad at all! love that top one with the flexing guy. that one shows alot of knowledge of lighting, and color. the others could use as much attention as the top one, but all in all id say your doing good!

    gestures look good, your really better than you think IMO


    but the last guy with daggers you posted looks like his forearm got fused into his bicep

    i think focus less on detail and more on structure

    Holy...crap...How the hell do you make those edges so crisp? Is it the sharpen tool or something? I HAVE to know : )

    This was awesome, some serious edge control goin' on, need to see more!
    If you ever have any questions, or you want help, all you need to do is shoot me a message.
    Can't hurt, right?

    Toffers, haha actually i was being really lazy.
    i did the hannes thing where you use the select tool on the silhouette of the figure.. render the edges, remove the selection and its very crispy.

    i would not recommend doing it though! its a bad habit.

    Man... you are so epic at getting depth/form/fullness in your drawings. I think it's the effect of your brushstrokes and edges - things just really pop off the page. You also have an awesome sense of energy in your work. Your gestures are crazy, man. @__@

    I do think the blurriness of some of your edges can be detrimental to your paintings, but.. I mean, you have so many skills. I'd really like to see a long, fully-finished painting from you. Mostly because I think it'd be fantastic and I want to see it, but it'd also help you/me realize what you need to work on, cuz things that hurt your quick work might not be an issue in longer pieces, right? If that makes sense?

    XD;;; anyway, keep up the good work! You're doing well.

    JesseM, thanks!
    really bringing my work to a high finish is something i need to work on.

    For today some armor studies, and a stillife as a substitute for not having any actual armor pieces. came out pretty bad haha.
