Sketchbook O painterlyness (updated MARCH 8th 2012)
HI guys,i'm Nubian.I'm an aspiring Animation Director.I dabble in a lil bit of everything.
i'll start of with some thingies from mid december 2011 that I ended up scrapping,but i'll probably come back to em later.
The first is supposed to be dark,but it may appear waaaay to dark depending on if your screen is calibrated properly.
More soon guys,comments and crits really appreciated.

No such thing as too much attitude.
Some really great stuff so far! I just love that first portrait especially. Keep updating!

I agree your first piece is amazingly beautiful.
I'll definitely be keeping watch on this sketchbook!
On your most recent piece only thing that bothers me is the fact that the hair looks extremely flat and not apart of her head.

Hey, yeah the first painting is really cool and the face at post 3 as well! I checked your blog and I dig the layouts too! post them! Don't be to selective, I bet you have a load of sketches you can upload here!

I like where this is going, really like the first portrait and Im a big fan of shape and planes too which you did fantastically on that other portrait, keep them coming.

On that face study, the features aren't lined up, especially the eyes. Even so, it's an interesting face.

I really like the first portrait. You have a nice painting stroke that gives your portraits some character.

Gibi the background on my blog is a year old thats why I didn't post it.I will however be posting some in the next couple days.
Tfsean thanks,really appreciated.
Blackspot,you are completly correct,I didn't do any construction and wasn't particulary worrying about that,i was just exploring technique...it actually turned out looking lucien freud-ish hehe
Jacks,thanks I really want to keep a nice sketcy paintery feel to my work,I'm not there yet,I find myself over-rendering.
I found in the past 4 days my art went to complete shite,but today I did a sketch that was bearable.
nothing special,i def need work on my heads looking up at different angels,I even still struggle with 3/4 views at times.

Some nice studies I love the first one too, you can imagine her moving any second. Nice painting technique you have.
Don't know if you do already but I think it would benefit you to flip your stuff horizontally whilst you're working on it, I'm terrible as well for not getting features aligned correctly and I find that's the best way to nip it in the bud before it gets too out of hand (you're only ever so slightly out though on a couple)

thanks angel,haha i flipped canvas like crazy on the hooded lady and the asian lady in the first post,I did on the others too,but at that stage they got scrapped/got bored of em so I didn't bother fixing.
I've seen professionals make drastic changes when they have flipped,so that makes me feel a little better lol.
anyway,I wasn't happy with the direction my last update was going so it went into my scrap folder until I am ready to jump back in it.
The problem i'm having with most painting is defining good edges and not getting everything too soft and messy,so I had an aha! moment,and started trying different techniques.
The aim of these studies was to create an image using simple shapes/edges and impressions,so that when the image is zoomed out it looks like there is a lot of detail but theres really not.I think i'm heading somewhere so i'm pretty excited to work on my next illustration.
