    I am going to attempt to update this with some of my sketches regularly.

    I am looking for any crits or helpful advice that people can offer! If you are considering commenting on my scribbles, please don't be afraid to pull them apart. I still have a lot to improve on and learn.
    There is some absolutely fantastic work on this site; I hope to learn a lot from posting here.

    I am currently studying an Illustration degree in Australia, in my final year.


    I am attempting to learn how to digital paint, any pointers would be fantastic!
    Below is a quick sketch I did recently at a cafe that I am attempting to digitally paint up.

    Got some critiques on it (fix the stomach and downsize the headdress), below is with the adjustments. Not sure if it has lost something, going to ponder it some more before I render it up.

    Went along to a 'armoured' life drawing session the other day, here are some of the sketches I came up with. Most of the poses were for about 10mins.

    Getting a bit stuck on the below image -
    Attempting to illustrate a Lovecraft story, can’t seem to get this race design right.
    I think I need to go practice my basics for a bit and start over.

    Great start for your sketchbook! Your blue girl image is really coming along but I think because the headdress is so large and covers quite a lot of the figure you may end up in that situation where you're painting the figure in pieces around the headdress which can be harder. Don't be afraid to create one layer for her and get everything resolved and working the way you'd like and then put your headdress on another layer over the top. Also are you using reference for that image or working out a figure in your head? Doing figure work in your head can be ok especially if you're going for a stylised look but there is nothing wrong with finding a photo and getting all the anatomy and proportions correct, it can also be great to jump up in front of a mirror and do the pose yourself and really understand how the figure is feeling.

    The armoured life drawing sketches are awesome! You got some pretty resolved drawings done for 10 minute poses. Good proportion and value in all the sketches.

    Your thumbnails are looking good, just keep on churning them out! Don't be afraid use a really dark black like you did in your bubbles environment, it makes that sketch look much more solid than the others.

    Great start, keep it up!

    Awesome, cheers for the comment!
    Yeah I neglected to use reference at all in my blue girl sketch. I like your suggestion of treating the girl first and then the headress over the top in seperate layers, I think it will fix a lot of the issues - I will try it out.


    Small progress on environment sketch:
    ScribbleBook

    Attempt at animating - was lots of fun to do! Looking forward to trying something more interesting.


    And heres some stuff from my actual sketchbook. Most from imagination, some images copied from artsyposes.com, and a couple of studies of my hand.
    Sorry for the writing on some of them, I use my sketchbook to take notes in lectures.

    Some awesome sketches here, especially the last seated pose on the "throne". Fun night, I'm looking forward to having another go sometime soon.

    Thanks Ebersol =]


    Just started work on a digital sketch for fun, and to experiment with some more tools. Did a really rough thing then tried painting over it a little to fix up some of the design flaws. Kind of liking how it’s going, having fun just messing about with it. Any comments would be great!

    Hopefully you'll keep working on that last piece?
    -Because I'm kind of excited to see where it's going

    I don't know how you did her mask, but it seems almost real to me... This is cool, I like it!

    Thanks Trixtar, I will try and stick with this image for a while. I’m not very good at finishing things off, I always seem to move on to a new image as soon as I have worked out where an image is headed! It’s a very bad habit.

    Still trying to tweak the composition and tones a bit more before I move onto details - not sure about where I have the girl sitting on the page =/
