    Topcross' Sketchbook

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a student digital arts and entertainment.
    I've been drawing for quite a while as a hobby but decided to step it up a nodge.

    All comments and tips are most appreciated.

    I like the first digital piece, only thing is there seems to be something about the blending, not sure what it is maybe it needs to be smoother.

    Yea, I'm still working on my blending in photoshop, it isn't always quite as smooth and clean as I'd want it to be. It tends to get messy and I spend a long time just to get one gradient clean, but I guess that something that comes with doing it more often? any tips appreciated

    Some quick color/enviroment studies, some from ref, others from imagination:

    You're doing pretty well. I would do some still lifes in with photoshop. That might help you become more confident in your coloring. You should also focus a little anatomy since it one of the hardest things to understand. Try to polish your studies a little more. You should also join the crimson daggers. Its a awesome group. Here are some sites that I use that help me.

    Good work! The thing I'm noticing about your figures is that they lack a distinct waist. The edge of the body tapers inward after the ribcage and then back out as it reaches the hips. This "hourglass" shape is less prominent in males than females, but it still exists. The figure to the far right in your most recent post has a particularly straight waist. If you bring those sides in it will look a lot better and also serve to separate the lower body from the upper body.

    Figure studies are looking better, what I would suggest though is going for the inner details rather than just the outline and I also noticed some of the proportions such as the neck seems to be slightly small. By the way, I think I realised what was wrong with the blending in your first piece, your midtone transitions are running into your core shadows, rather than being a transition solely on the midtone area, it's something I have realised that i have been doing in my digital painting and I'm now trying to correct it, I could be wrong though but you should take a look at how midtones curve on a plane though and come up with your own opinion.
