    The Electric Ant sketchbook

    Hello everyone!
    I'm 21yo guy who is going to study Game Art Design in 3 months, so I've decided that it's good moment to start my own sketchbook here!

    Here is a still life and some sketches, from refs from http://www.lovecastle.org/draw/ , from today, all critic and comments welcome

    Hello, and welcome to CA! Great studies so far, especially that skull. The nail polish is a good start to painting from life, but it's a little asymmetrical - try flipping the canvas when you're blocking it in to help alert you to symmetry issues early on. Keep up the good work!

    A good start - loomis` books are simply amazing. Keep it up.
    I think that your paintings appear to blurry because you overuse
    the airbrush brushes - take the good old hard round brush instead.
    keep it up.
    greetings
    klaus

    Here are some my recent digitals and tomorrow I'll upload some stuff from my traditional sketchbook

    Hey,thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, I really dig your use of wet media on those moleskine pages and your ability to sketch from imagination which is an ability which i am finding very hard to develop. I would suggest however that you work on the confidence of your line in your pencil drawings.

    jabbit - Thanks mate! That's not moleskine It's just random cheap sketchbook.. actually I need to get moleskine sketchbook cause that one I use has grainy, textured paper which makes lines look messy:/ Well I've been drawing from my imagination my whole life simultaneously overlooking the importance of drawing from life and now I have to make that up... And yeah, I need to work on my lines Anyway, thanks for visit

    Here's some stuff from today:

    Nice work so far!

    is it just me or does it looks like the gnoll is scratching his balls?
    I like the idea of it scavanging human remains to add to his armor/tools. perhaps elaborate more on things like the kneecaps.
    those look a bit generic.

    Lumens - thanks man! Good advice! I applied it and added some more bones stuff

    I think I can call the gnoll finished.. Also here are some sketches and my idea for the actual CHOW - The Captain of the Guard.
