    getting started

    hey,
    i promised myself not to be too lazy this year and hopefully starting and updating a sketchbook will help me improve...
    so... harsh critique is welcome

    lets start with some fast studies from today and a sketch for chow.

    Welcome to CA (I'm new as well), I like what you've posted so far. I'll leave it to the more experienced to give you a more in depth critique but I'd like to see more. These are great quick studies and they make me want to see additional stuff, maybe some more detailed work as well? What program are you using?

    Not a bad start. Maybe work some more detail in there as you go. Looking forward to seeing what comes next!

    Good Start!
    Solid Anatomy & values.
    Maybe a little too much black (never use black, ITS THE DEVIL)
    and colors are looking a little dull.
    I would have to see more in order to say that with more certainty, though.

    Solid stuff, the forms you're capturing are great, try to push some detail to give your sketches a focal point.

    Some of them do indeed look to be a bit on the dark end of the spectrum but I enjoy them regardless. I like how you approach shapes, very interesting.

    What software do you use?

    hm somehow i did a post but its not shown :/
    so again:

    @bouroune:thanks!
    @mike butkus:thank you. trying to improve with my drawing skills...
    @elricslinger:yeah i will try to put a little bit more detail in...i know i often kinda rush from one sketch to the next one without putting enough info in it, especially on pc...
    @xelar:i often tend to go into darks to fast...i hate it. also having issues with my monitor being too bright...cheap notebook...
    @kt samurai:just using photshop as most people

    sooo again only quick stuff...warmups, some random boring faces, quick study of my climbing shoes from life, a face i totally fucked up in the end and stopped working on because of frustation, a face i actually really like and a something inspired by the movie alatriste.

    bored by my own stuff -.-
    have to start working on my problems asap...especially rendering something to finish and doing more studies of the things i have problems with...
    but anyway some crappy things... last one is the block-in for a study of a skull, i will try to push that one to a clean and polished finish.

    had a lot of stuff to do and no time
    so just a small update on the skull, a really quick study and some stupid experiment...hopefully i will get my scanner to work, so i can upload some traditional stuff im working on.
