    dirksteele's sketchbook

    Hi all

    Long time lurker finally taking the plunge into the Sketchbook thread. I'm a 31 year old guy from the UK who has only just recently gotten back into art and have been messing around with digital for about a year now. Hoping to practice a lot and improve even more! Thanks for looking at my stuff.

    (Please note the zombie and bandit raider images were painted from figure reference on the excellent sixmorevodka blog).

    Love the figure studies, especially the second half. The portrait study looks great too, but I think you have some accuracy issues in the neck. Your rendering also feels a little 'mushy'; try using a little higher opacity/flow on your brushes and economize your strokes. Keep up the good work!

    Love the werewolf and the photoshop study.Your rendering is pretty good as it is but In a matter of no time it will become photorealistic so keep practicing until you nail it!

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. I agree about the brushstrokes issues I have, I always seem to overwork stuff! I use 100% opacity and flow by default so is it more a case of economising and blending better do you think?

    Sith Lord

    I found this image on a Cosplay site and loved the lighting and colours so figured I'd give it a go. Took a few hours in the end (so much for a speedpaint, my original intention).
