I love the line quality in your latest pencil sketches. What I don't like that much is that you're omitting the head a little - which is the most important thing to study for you right now. I'd suggest doing ~100 60s poses in which you try to focus mainly on the head-to-body proportions. I think that should fix that issue once and for all
Other then that, I love your style, everything from post #218 is just gorgeous!
I don't know the photo-refs that you've used for the cloud studies (I guess you've used photos?), but I get the feeling that your studies are lacking some of the contrast that you'd normally see there. (Those really bright values that can be found in some clouds, etc.)
ecki: hm i took the photos myself the other day, those are the skies of my humeland
im using an old screen with light problems cauze i dont have money for a new screen i want but soon will be fixed
thx alot for the head problem feedback buddy, im gonna do the studies your recommending me, but maybe ill do longer studies, 60 secs seem too fast. (edit: em not all are my shots, i used a master painting and internet photo ref too)
it took me alot and the results are meh, i am thinking in keep doing cow chow and eow until i see some improvement in my method of work since my method its always a mess it take me too much time to finish anything, yeah well...
Hey Buxu! Thanks for checking out my sketchbook! Man, I must say I really enjoy your imagination work! Especially the character in post 224#. I can see that your also working hard with life studies and anatomy, keep it coming man!
Goddamn, so much work since I've last been here. I don't even know what to say. I'm just impressed at how much you're producing. I think I enjoy your pen sketches from imagination the most at the moment, but studies are important too. The way you draw the figure is very fluid but that leads to the proportions being stretched out. That's fine when it's intended but watch out for it when you're doing things like chow
jon: joooon yay you noticed, its true i make tons of fluid lines withouth bothering about proportion but i think its cause i lack the control, gotta study the figure more i guess em and yeah i went with alot of imagination lately to try some things but im back to studies, really need them.
went back and forward with this one alot, tried many things, and realized some stuff, i think i know why i take so long, i lack solid skills and as a result end up guessing too much which consumes time... and also because rendering is still something new to me end up messing around endlessly, even so im happy i did the lasts imagination pieces, discovered a few things.
bumskee studies, i still dont understand how his edges can be so organic, my copies of his stuff look digital o_+
messing around, trying to break the barrier of digital feeling and what not
lines imagination, the happy time of sketches
i realized recently im learning design with this experiments, seeing what works, seeing what not.
design studies from life, sketch exploration! :3
the last chow modified, i did adjustments to the light with color balance to separete
in color the lights from the shadows, i already knew this but its hard to remember
all the rules while doing the pieces, its like, ideas come little by little.
