    marowak's sketchbook

Size:  20.6 KBHello everyone

    I'm completely new here, and decided to post my "works" here in hope that you help me improve my rather low skill level... :-/
    Some say that in your way to get a better artist it's important to set yourself some measureable (not sure if i wrote it well) goal to go to... Well my goal is to be as good as for eg.
    morano (http://morano.cgsociety.org/gallery/613191/) or omen. I'm not sure if you are familliar with their work but it's enough to say that i have a long long way in front of me...

    1.So first of my little goals will be learning myself a human anatomy with Glenn's Vilppu tutorials.

    2.At the same time i"m going to do an everyday life drawing's (at least 5)
    3.I'm gonna do digital paintings with fruits and that sort of things to learn myself about the color (3 per week at least)
    4. I'm going also to da daily practice with gesture drawing from there (http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php).

    In future I thought about a tutorials from ImagineFX or something like that, not sure really how to "bite it"....

    I'll try to post all of my drawings / paintings in this threat and I would really appreciate your comments what's wrong, what's good , how to improve and etc.




    hopefully I will post some more shortly, I'm already curios about your comments... ;-)

    Great start to your sketchbook marowak. I especially like the sketch of the walkway with the trees & benches. Your gestures are so dope.

    Also some concept of a shoe... it from CA 101 assignments (NO#1)... the concept is to take a real life object, draw it , and then change it slightly, so it looks like drawned from life... ;-)

    Nice to see a lot of hard work here. Keep drawing from life, bit of a slog sometimes but it will definitely pay off. I'd also recommend checking out a figure drawing book (Loomis and Vilppu are my favorites) so you can get some extra insight into the construction of the figure.

    Good studying! Try focusing a little more on the actual quality of your shading; a lot of it has a scribbly quality that makes your studies look messier than they really are. You can fill large areas quite quickly with the side of a sharp pencil, just put a little more care into laying the tone down. If you want to go for a sort of hatching look instead, just remember to pick up your pencil at the edges to avoid the big loops/zig-zag look.

    Whoa, this last work is just awesome compared to the earlier stuff. Good improvement
    Hmm some weird about the fighter concept, is it me or is that cockpit a little askew? Maybe it's just the lighting on the thing...

    thank's a lot !! , I also think that there is something wrong with this guy, I already noticed that the hands are quite off, even I already fixed them before (they were even worse than that..!!!!) Nice to hear that You liked the "daggers on the back idea" , I really tried to get this guy quite functional look, as he might be buildable in real world... I still struggle when it comes to painting though, need to work on that cause for now I feel more comfortable with linework...
