    This is about my 5th sketchbook here on CA.org.

    I've kept having to restart a new one because I disappear for a while then notice all the images I posted have gone. Anyway it's always good to kind of hit the reset button and get things started again, so I aim post often since I've been getting back into doing art alot.

    So some things to get started.

    Hey man. Thankyou for your reply the other day. i really appreciate what u told me, and i watched your 4-part loomis video's. Great tutorials by the way, it really helps seeing someone go through the step by step process instead of just staring them in the book. I', trying to sink in the basic forms and shapes, to give my art the more rounded 3d form w/o looking flat. I guess basics is what i really need. sometimes i just 'wing' it, in terms of creating a face or whatever it may be, and i want to be confident in that i can create whatever i want without the fear of it not working. So thanks again! i'll be sure to look through more of your stuff!

    (Sorry the following is copy-pasted form my CGHUB sketchbook but I guess it applies here too)


    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

    I'm nothing special, just trying to learn like everyone else. I still need all the crits I can get.

    So here's a Bluye Yeti in celebration of getting my Blue Yeti Microphone for doing tutorial voice-overs. So I'll have a process video up soon.

    Hey cam skyes, thanks for the detailed paintover! Im working through deciphering what you have done with the layers/colors, it looks damn awesome i must say. And that texture is a nice final touch, it's certainly nice to get detailed help from you

    I like your black and white thumbnails on post #11 , the shadows are reading very well for me. Also u painting the wip before it? the fish monster....that will turn out well.

    talk soon man, thanks for the help once again.

    Fun with a Stylus and The Seaker

    Koh- yeah I wanna do them more often, but so many different things to study and practice, plus spending time tryna stay fit and all that can be difficult to balance. And same to you.

    Anty93- here's the brush set... the one you're after is a rectangle looking texture brush if you can find the thumbnail.link

    Icecold: thanks man, Yeah I'm trying to bring stronger colour into my work, although it's strange that these are colourful because most start greyscale.

    BlightedArt: Thanks, I'm learnign more about colour and light. I'm noticing the stronger my understanding of those 2 things the easier it is to paint a solid piece from imagination.

    tronrobot: Yeah no probs man. It's probably pretty complicated to look at all those layers. I usually flatten alot, but I kept them separate so you could see. And here's the fish monstrosity.

    So I've been going through Fun with a Pencil and will try to get through Successful drawing too, before I go away for 3 months in January. Probably won't be able to do much art if any. I can't really say why but probably tell you later. It starts with A if that's any clue.

    Actual time was about 5 hours. I'll make a longer narrated version sometime soon.

    Hi and welcome back to CA with yer new sb. Both bird pix in the first post are very cool and nicely rendered.

    The Blue Yeti is pretty cool too but the pose is a bit flat-footed/stiff. I watched the video...you have a cool channel with LOTS o'videos!

    Anyway...thanks for the visit and keep the good work coming (and use the attachment manager so you can keep yer sb going this time!)

    Jephyr: Thanks mate. Yes you're right I should put more storytelling into the pose. I need to study that sort of thing more. So much to think about with weight, gesture, anatomy, body type, proportions, perspective, clothing...

    Here's something for a competition. And some initial thumbs for practice and to help get ideas for the character design.

    Hi Cam, love the skechbook. I especially like the environment thumbs, maybe you should flesh one or two of your favorites out into final paintings in your free time as some of the compositions are great.

    Want to give a massive thanks to the tutorials your putting out there. Your videos of you working through Loomis have inspired me to do it myself although I'm struggling after a year of not doing any drawing

    Thanks for taking the time to help people out with those videos!!!

    Trixtar: Thanks for the kind words.

    Whirly: Wow man, really glad to hear that. I aim to get through the entire book before 2 weeks, because I'm going to be gone for 3 months... I can draw but won't have access to scanner or place to upload. After I get back I'll then go through Successful drawing but may not be able to dedicate so much time because I'll be starting a new job.

    Diarum: Thanks man, I appreciate you amking the tutorials thread, it's very helpful for alot of people.

    so here's something today, I'm trying to work more on values so figuring out a process where I can work and value and gradually add colour, it takes alot longer but I like the end result.

    It's similar to how I made the last girl portrait study. This is from imagination though, but I use myself a bit as reference, I'm a bit sunburnt which actually helped get the sort of skin tones I was going for.

    haha, yeah I was going for an emotional feeling to suit the style of painting, I wasn't actually sad while painting it. The self reference was more to find the highlight and shadow areas.

    here's a half-study of a study of a study. The original sculpt aws by Jordu Schell then Whirly here on Conceptart.org did a study of it, then I used that as reference for this piece. Trying to get better at rendering form.

    Great birds! Keep them coming! I like your siluettes as well, though I have to say that the finished Thorin does not lives up to the expectations (don't get me wrong it is good). Somehow it lacks the strenght that the siluettes have. Happy new year!
