    Hunchdebunch Furiously Tries To Improve

    I'm basically restarting this sketchbook, it barely had anything on it and I abandoned it for over a year!

    What is the bad idea avout the slicing machine?
    It´s cute, sweet and you can watch it day and night.

    Ah, and good start here on concept art. I can´t give you artistic criticism but as a viewer I find you shadowing in the last one a bit disturbing. It doesn´t melt in with the painting and makes it look kind of "dirty". (Limited English)
    In your third post (wolves) it looked better.
    Greetings,

    Thanks very much

    The comic page with the wolves was actually drawn much more recently than the other piece, so I've had time to work on that shading, but I see exactly what you mean about the painting looking sort of dirty. Thanks for the advice!

    Good start here. As for critiques, I'd say focus much more on the basics and construction to help you achieve results in regards to drawing figures. The more comfortable you are with the basics, the better, faster, and easier figure drawing will be. Keep it going!

    Ok I haven't been on here in ages and ages, but I recently graduated from university! I've realised that I actually have a strong interest in concept art for films and games, as well as making my comics, and so I came back
    Here's some recent work:

    Last night I decided that I'm going to work way harder on improving my art, and I'm going to make sure I draw everyday.

    Here's a self portrait I did last night to practice getting the lighting/tones right. It turned out a little more stylized than I intended, and I look about 12 haha, but I was mostly just practicing the shading so I wasn't too concerned by that since I have done more accurate self portraits in the past and already know I can draw myself I'm also pretty new to digital painting, so it's interesting trying out different settings and stuff, seeing what works best.

    Hi good start to sketch book I like the designs you got going on the Grub and fleets pictures , you say your new to digital painting a site that might be worth check out is CTRLpaint it's got some nice free tutorials on the basics of using photoshop and painting in photoshop ,
    all so its up to you of course but I found spending a hour or two reading through the sketchbooks on here really helpful to see what kind of studies/practice people where doing and get inspired and learn few things about how to improve only a suggestion of course!
    Keep up the good work and keep posting !

    Thanks, jimid! I'll check out CTRLpaint, and I'll take a closer look at other peoples' learning processes in their sketchbooks too

    Here are a few paintings from today, one copied from a Mass Effect screencap, a quick sketch of a sphere, and one copied from a photo.

    Good effort in the studies and I really like the self portrait! Just some parts look greenish and it kinda throws the whole grey scale thing off. Hope you don't stop updating!

    Thanks, Uyeno! I'm not sure what you mean about the self portrait looking greenish, it may be an issue with my computer monitor, perhaps?

    I was out today so I didn't have so much time to draw, but here's a quick painting I did based on a Skyrim screencap

    I'm practicing digital painting, so I decided to try painting Morrigan from Dragon Age. It's not finished yet though.

    I have to say I really love your sketchbook! My favourite piece by far is your self portrait. The way you did your hair really stood out to me!

    As for your most recent painting, I think it's great! Awesome colour palette. The only criticism I would give would be that the knife isn't really held onto anything other than the rope around her waist. But that's about all I can give at the moment!

    Awesome work!

    Thanks! Haha oh yeah, you're totally right, I'm not sure how that knife is actually staying there! I'll see about designing some sort of sheath around it. Thanks for pointing that out!

    I continued working on my portrait of Morrigan, I think I'm going to call this finished, mainly because it's a fanart that was meant to just be a warm-up haha

    Here are some comparisons; a sphere I drew a few days ago (left) and one I drew today (right). And then my character art from before; the original on the left, and then on the right is my progress today. I don't know if I made the shading too intense though?

    I like the more intense shading personally, but I think you need an equal light to make the darker shading plausible? I don't know if that makes sense, haha. I do like the purple shade though. It goes well with the skin tone!

    Love the colours in your works.
    As regards the gesture drawing you may use more curved lines to make the most of the impression of the forces in play , keep it up!

    Here's what I've done today, I continued my character painting, and did a weird environment sketch. I haven't had a very productive day really, I might do some more art tonight, we'll see.

    Here's what I've been working on so far today, I'd seen a lot of people talk about using 100% opacity for brushes when digital painting, so I decided to try that. This was all done with an 100% opaque brush.

    The bottom two on this page are a comparison, the old one is on the left and the one I did today is on the right.

    For these next ones I did digital paintings based on the sketches on the left.

    And then I did another self portrait, I've put the old one next to it for comparison, the new one is on the right.

    Wow! I think your new self portrait is awesome! I really like your use of values in there. Super cool for sure! It's a great idea to use full opacity brushes. :3

    I didn't do a lot today either, but I compiled some most of my art from August to make this:

    I've been so unmotivated recently, I think partly because I feel bogged down looking for a job :/ Anyway, here's a quick weird painting I did this morning just to try and get started again. I'm not even sure what it is, to be honest haha

    Aww, I'm sorry you're feeling down. Looking for a job is really hard for sure. Biggest thing would be to apply to any job you find interesting, even if you don't meet the prerequisites! Sometimes that 'certificate' needed thing is just to weed out candidates.

    As for your warm up painting, I like it! It's a grassy...shadowy...thingy! It's simple, but I like your camera angle you chose with it being lower to the ground. Keep up the great work! Motivation is so hard for sure.

    Yeah, my problem at the moment is that there seems to be very few jobs going, and even though I've applied to a fair few I haven't even heard back from most of them :/ Haha thanks, the camera angle was a subconscious decision. Actually, most of what I did in that painting was subconscious haha

    I'm going to draw 100 environments (from reference) in order to get better at them (I won't draw them all right now, of course haha), so here's the first two I really struggled with the second one and I think it shows.
