    Paul's Sketchbook

    Hello CA,

    My name is Paul. I have wandered this forums for ages, but never had the courage to make a sketchbook. I've been drawing for quite a while as a hobby with some stops in-between but decided to really take it serious now.

    Also the things that dan and dave sad in there live streams pushed me to finally get out there. So here we go!

    p.s

    crits and comments are more then welcome!

    Awesome start, I like the road paintings you have there, maybe you can push the contrast a bit more? The bottom painting doesn't seem to have a clear light source for example.

    Love the Batman picture. Don't be afraid to get into those darker values in your other pieces! They'll give them a lot more depth. Keep on going with the Loomis, though. I can never stress how important that man was to my development.

    Crazy Pills: Thanks man, I'm trying to keep it going

    RennYinford: The link to your images are broken, so I don't really understand what you are trying to say.

    Hi! Looks like you really understand value well...your pencil sketches, like the portraits in #9 have so much depth to them.

    Lovin Clint and Wolverine. Keep those Loomis and Vilpuu studies coming!

    Hey nice updates since I last stopped by.

    I have a crit for you on that comp of the Conan-looking guy in the throne.

    1) The framing of that shot is VERY static and kind of uninspired. I think you could give it a lot more dynamicism by simply changing the angle of the camera 10-20 degrees up or down. It'll tell a lot more of a story. I'm imagining it as if our viewpoint was close tot eh floor. It will enhance the triangle composition and make him even more powerful. You'd have to tweak it to find the perfect angle, but I definitely think a VERY powerful image is hidden away in this sketch. It looks like you already took the camera angle down a little from the first one, I'd push it even further.

    2) The foreshortening on the legs isn't really showing. The knees don't appear to be very far forward away from the body.

    3) The pose and expression. This one's kind of just taste, but his pose is also pretty static, especially with his current expression. This just goes along with the framing really because it's all pretty straight forward.

    Anyway, I hope you push this piece because I think you could really do a lot with it given your skill. Keep on pushing! NEVER SURRENDER! *evil laugh*

    Long time since I post. I have some up and down's when it comes to drawing. I sometimes lose interest or just to busy with work and stuff. I have some more free time now so hope I can get back in and hold on this time. I sometimes can shoot myself for slacking. but here we go...

    Some screenshot studies and an sergent study. Do you guys have any tips how to approach a study such as sergent? With this one I studied it for value and brush strokes.

    Loving the Sargent and the close up of the face. The unfocused look on the left eye is sweet.

    Don't stop!! No slacking!

    Landscape of today. Hope to do some more and some head studies. Decided to focus on heads and landscapes for the comming weeks. I'm still lost when it comes to landscapes. Can't wrap my head around all the small details.
