    I've been working in the IT support field for over ten years and have always liked to draw. I was inspired by Kitfox's sketchbook to start my own and use "deliberate practice" to try and get better.

    Reading "Bold Visions" by Gary Tonge and following along in a step-by-step process of a digital painting by Kevin Crossley. Here's the progress so far.

    Finished following along a step-by-step process of a digital painting by Kevin Crossley. It looks nowhere as good as his original, but enjoyed giving it a try.

    Nice fresh start! Definitely seems like you've got some skills in your system. Just try to work consistently and update often, you're bound to see some results!

    Can't wait to see more stuff from you!

    kitfox Thanks for making me a part of the SSG!

    OHI Thanks!

    Working on another step-by-process in Gary Tonge's "Bold Visions". I have a hard time making clean drawings so this has been a challenge.

    The greyscale looks interesting, can you show us the finished version when it's done?

    By the way, do you do any traditional work?

    Miss.BonBon Thanks, I'm pretty motivated right now, so I plan on posting often, now whether that's a good thing....

    kitfox I draw with pen and pencil a lot. Paint not so much, but plan on getting more into it. I think I'll def. be posting a lot more traditional once I get through this book I'm reading.

    Finished the step-by-step by Gary Tonge. Line quality and confident strokes highly lacking.
    And just for fun, a birthday card I gave a friend today.

    Following along another another step-by-step process by Gary Tonge. Also a cast drawing and setup that needs a lot more love (not really sure what I'm doing here but hopefully that doesn't mean I'm wasting my time.) And just for fun, the Hulk and Jarvis.

    The digital stuff is nice like previously but seeing that cast drawing is cool! I'm still doing Bargues but I'll should be moving into cast drawing in a few weeks. If you don't know what you're doing with the casts, checking my Bargue process might help (it's in my sketchbook). I'm pretty sure you can use a similar process for cast drawings as I've done for Bargues. At first glance there seems to be some proportional problems with it but if you wanted to nail them you'd probably have to start over since you've already went into rendering.

    To get really accurate proportions and angles you'll want to spend a good while on blocking in the cast and the shadow shapes with simple straight lines. Continually progress into smaller and more accurate details until it's near perfect, only then move into rendering the values. Doing things in stages and making sure all the proportions hold together through the whole process will lead to a good drawing.

    kitfox glad you like seeing the cast drawing. You're right, I think my lack of patience hurts my drawings, will likely need to learn to be patient and go through the stages better. But will now consider doing a new one once I finish this one.

    Another step-by-step from Gary Tonge's book "Bold Visions". I struggled alot with this one. Need to study light more (hopefully doing the cast is helping with that.) I feel like the book has been pretty helpful to me so far.

    I think the lighting is quite good, but there's something a little unclear about the perspective. Are the "stairs" going up or to the horizon, how do they exist in space?

    kitfox Good question, on Gary's original painting it seems pretty clear the stairs are elevating. Should have done a better job on illustrating that on mine.

    Cast update. Got frustrated trying to get even tones so took a small piece of paper and did some small squares (paper hanging) which took 1/2 hour. Was more satisfied with the squares and I started to see the importance with keeping the vine charcoal sharp at all times. Afterward did a tiny rectangle area on the background (left of the cast shadow) and was happier with it. Will take a looong time to get that done on the rest of the background but at least now I feel like it's doable.
