    Suminsky`s Sketchbook

    Hello...Never posted art in this forum, so... I guess I will be keeping uploading that thread with my work, starting by posting some stuff I have stored in the pc already..
    I will not post everything at once because the feedback(if any) will probably spread out too much..

    The point is get some feedback, I want know what ppl think about my style and get pointed at the problems with my drawings that I cant actually see yet ;D

    Ive been most part of my life the "pencil dude", I feel much more confident with a pencil than doing cg with the bamboo pen I have..
    (sorry if this is getting too long)
    I always try to exaggerate everything I can in the drawings, pose, forms, expressions, etc.. I like very stylized stuff, but I also like very realistic textures and minimum details..Fav artists that comes to mind is Jim Murray and Paul Bonner.

    Also, Im with very few spare time (working and studying a lot) so I dont have much recent work to post.. I think thats it..
    (I dont have a blog anymore, so ignore the address in the drawings)
    (also, first time posting, dont know if Im doing anything wrong..)

    HOW THIS WORKS:
    - I will link to all posts of mine that have artwork uploaded, so you can follow everything from the first post(this one).

    posts with work:
    -this one
    -second
    -third
    -forth
    -fifth
    -sixth
    -seventh

    Just uploaded last 4 drawings (first post).

    Erm...Theres a way to post the images zoomed out? Like then when you click they enlarge or something like that...also Id like to post something between the images, instead of displaying all at the end...what a noob huh?

    Hope you enjoy the new pics

    Whoa, great work man. Love all rippling muscles and the hands. I think it's the style that makes me think your characters would look fitting in graffiti.

    Thanks man, drawing muscles and hands is something particularly fun to do, I always enjoyed to do it.

    Your drawings are great. You clearly show you have good sense in capturing volume and gestures.

    I was also a pencil person. My advice for you, from my own struggle, is to develop understanding of light and shadow, as well as hue. I assume you tend to shade without being conscious about light source. (sorry if I'm wrong) If you nail down those basics for painting, regardless of your interest in painting, ...you will be even more amazing at drawing!

    nice work

    Yo! Thanks!
    I do tend a lot to shade caring only about volume/form. Im so used to do it that I never remember to keep shading based on the same light sources..probably because I dont do much compositions(scenes with environments, etc.).
    I will try keep that on focus.

    By hue do you mean keep different tonalities of gray for different colors?
    This is something I already try to do (dont make drawings look like plaster statues you know..). This is a very good advise.
    I will remember those on my next drawings.

    BTW, theres a way to post the same image without having to re-upload it? Id like to post the new images on the new posts, but also keep them in the first one, that way I can keep things more readable and anyone can see all the drawings without having to travel trough all the (future) pages..

    Uploading everything to the first is just really messy, I think I will be uploading in the new posts, and then link to those posts in the first post...sounds good..

    SO, Im choosing some drawings from my recent scanned ones to post here, and get some feedback.

    Thanks.
    I dont know how to answer, I just like exaggerating...
    Anything specific you see and immediately dont like? Like something odd? Or you just curious?
    Theres ppl who prefer more realism, theres others who prefer cartoony/stylized, etc.. I sure dont feel tied to realistic stuff, but I like to detail/shade it to make it feel touchable..
    (J.D.Hillberry is my example of how far can pencil shade go to make it feel real)

    So...free sketching for my own sake..
    Testing with the so acclaimed squad brush..(it really gives a painterly feel), trying to suck some DavidRapozaArt skills with the ninja turtle, testing some heavy light effects on batman (trying to run away of heavy lined art I was doing lately)

    Big hands is a necessity! They get smaller the more uninspired I get, and vice-versa ¦D
