Seems like your strength is in tones, mostly notable in your paintings. Maybe try drawing faces in blocks of tone, like you do with the environments. Try a few times without relying on line, you might just surprise yourself.
Thanks for stopping by my SB I really appreciate it mate thanks. As to your work so far, its looking ok and there are errors here and there but just keep going and use more reference, and like Strato said in my SB take your time and observe more, some of the portraits seem to be a bit rushed.
Otherwise keep grinding those skills and challenging yourself, all the very best mate I will stop in again from time to time and see how its going ( we can compare notes lol!).
Hi, thanks for the encouragement!
Your latest character designs are really promising.
You are spreading you're studies out well, including drapery.
I dont know if you've heard of burne hogarths dynamic wrinkles and drapery, its a pretty solid book thats well explained on how kinetic forces affect clothing.
a link to the free pdf if you're interested in improving drapes. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2176759/Bu...es-and-Drapery
Really nice gestures and life drawings.
The environment studies are looking great !
One small suggestion is to add some hard edges to the point of interest in your digital paintings.
Keep up the good work!
i really like your pencil/ink (?) stuff, the hogarth studies are looking awesome.
in your life digital studies you could try to get a bit more contrast in your values. then your shapes will be better readable i think.
keep it up
Just swung by for another look and to see how you are getting on mate. its looking good, I did loads of eye studies too there are just so many expressions that come from the eyes and if you don't get the nuances right the portrait doesn't come off does it!? I am just so crap at humans and anatomy it embarrassing lol.
Your environment studies are coming on too, its good to see someone trying so hard to improve keep at it and you will be selling your art for a fortune in no time.
all the best with the work mate and keep grinding those skills and posting.
Hey there, I think your pencil stuff is coming along, one thing about that though and hair in general, draw hair as a mass or at least clumps, strands dont really work.
For your digital I would recommend doing some black and white value studies of some environment and also look at edges, you seem to be doing most of your stuff with the hard round which is great, a lot of people want to airbrush stuff to hell, creating hard and soft edges in a piece helps create form though so experiment with that.
Hey, keep up those studies , doing good here
If i might give you some advice about color studies - look more carefully what other lights affect your objects (blueish light from the window maybe, yellow light from the lightbulb. It will help you to find better colors!
I see that in your sketches it seems you're pressing down pretty hard on the paper as well as a few you did on the tablet--and that you are drawing from the wrist. I find that it's always good to start off loosely with scribbles and then selecting the line you wish to refine. Also; sketching from the elbow allows you to focus on the scribbles and thus the whole picture.
Other than that; I see your improving a bit on the digital side. You have a strong-point (in my opinion) on composition--I like how you balanced the image out. Keep those sketches coming.
Great sketchbook! I have to say, you've got such a nice and clear line! good job on those traditional sketches. As I said, the line seems very expressive, good job on that .
Those last paintings you've been working on are nice too! But don't forget to add some elements below them, specially on those vehicles. Try to think about a floor or surface in which they are resting, or if flying, then some clouds, etc. Not exactly to create an illustration, but just to keep your mind thinking about composition.
Nada importa morir, pero no vivir es horrible.
Nice work, the values in the last one look a little washed out, and the colours are a little muddy. Try to add in some harder edges and try to stay away from greys when you are adding tone. Buy, uhm yeah...otherwise you're doing good.
hey thanks for coming to my sketchbook i found your comment very helpful. Some cool stuff here by the way but you definitely need to work on your hard surfaces and perspectives.
I did a crude redline to show how the wings of this vehicle may not be properly aligned with the body it things like this that mean an image can just look a bit odd. good luck.
