Great to see you working so hard man, thanks for dropping my sb, good to see the anatomy studies but mabye also try abit colour studies, mayben even try to draw your own hand from life? but can be tricky to paint with one hand keep pushing hard!
ZeroBeat - thanks :] ... i assure you talent has nothing to do with this.....in my opinion talent is the easiness of understanding things the way they are!! but to express it through another medium requires skill .... and im working hard to improve my skills... if i can do it, so can anyone else with dedication and passion!!
snatti - thanks . i do color studies but very little ... right now im focusing heavily on nailing my values after that comes color!! haha it can be really tricky to paint with one hand but drawing from life has its own advantages!! thanks!!
BlackDelphin - im not sure what you mean by "refles" and thanks :]
so these are updates of past few days
THIS WAS DONE FROM MIND I WANTED TO TEST MYSELF
moving forward in hamptons book - Trapezius
more trapezius from photo ref. from deviantart the top left separated one is from hamptons
and other stuff just for fun!!
testing stuff in photoshop
You're seriously kicking some ass dude! You have a great sense of mood in your paintings. I see you're doing pretty awesome on your anatomy studies too, keep up the pace
AwesomeShane - thankyou ... yea i draw every day ...been keeping up the mileage .... and its really paying off, never been more happier!!
StressCavity - thanks man ... ive been paying too much attention to figures ..i never really thought someone would compliment my paintings lol .... thank you!!
so update of past 2 or 3 days
more trapezius from DA
then took a lil break from hampton's and drew these just for fun and enjoyment
wow what a giant step up! Honestly I love them all, especially the anatomy but on that ball you renderd, you really made a big step up from the past textured things you did. There is texture but its not too much. Really great job and thank you again for stopping by.
The red enviro with the character in and lots of clouds really looks great when it comes to color in imo. I agree with snatti and try to do moar hands maybe some still lifes.
I can hardly belive the pace u are lvling up. The anatomy studies, u are a killer keep it up, Im truly happy to see your progress going so well.
ninaren - damnit .. im drowning in bubbles of happiness thanks for those kind works!! i guess "drawing everyday" thing is really paying off and its been only a month since i started drawing regularly everyday!! but thanku thanku thanku
A color study as i have been told many time that i should do this from time to time!!
so i did this from deviantart "Primavera by ElenaKalis"
if you cant tell what this is after looking at it in 3-4 seconds then i have failed!!
ok.. so a lot of people know the artist Puddnhead [kevin llewellyn]
i came to know about him last year through one of his tutorial DVD's from gnomon. so i reasearched about him a little and came to know more about him!! but i was missing one point that i didnt knew which came across me last night while i was reading imagine FX's review about Puddnhead. and there was just one line that had the reality check i needed..... it said
" he drew 15 hours a day during school "
15 fucking hours a day..
15 ... now thats dedication!!
this one line inspired me so much that it makes me want to be a better artist and a better person, get things straight and have a clear vision of what i want!!
so from now on im gonna be more dedicated towards improving and working on my art! so that one day i can look back and say ...."im glad"!!!
moving forward in hamptons book >> next batch is Deltoids
and as always these are from photo ref. from deviantart
and these were drawn just for fun..also from deviantart
oh yeah I had a subscription on gnomon, pricy but u get alot for it. However now I would rather just buy books because movie tutorials are great but holding a book is special and I just love the fresh book scent u get when you get a new one lol ^^ yeah Im a booksniffer. But this is just personal preferences
But dang, 15 hours a day?? I didnt knew puddnheads real name but wow 15 hours, now thats dedication altho I think its good to also think about exercising abit, eating and drinking right if you are gonna sit down 15 hours a day. I know from my own experiences when I was in school and had projects and I just didnt eat right or exercised. Back and neck pain crawls up on you and it aint funny.
However, just thinking about dedication, I know you have it in you, seeing you growing so fast. I have no doubt that you will look back and think the same as Puddnhead did and you will reach your goal. You are starting to get a nice knowledge about anatomy and muscles and that you are thinking about shapes and thinking in 3d.
about that colored one "Primavera by ElenaKalis". you didnt fail, only thing I see is that above the waterline, ElenaKalis uses less white than you do. the feet and coloring looks really nice, I like the blending u got going. really great study. Keep at it and I know I said it before but u are a killer, go catch your dream, u have so much motivation that it will take u anywere u want.
ninaren - lol im a book sniffer too i know that good good smell of a new book!!
yea i realized it a little too late , i have a little lower back pain ......damnit!!
thanks...whenever i look at crazy good artists all i wanna do is just pick up a pencil and draw draw draw!!
thanks... i think i'll do more of ElenaKalis photo studies.... the colors in her photos are really amazing!!
thanks for your continuous support nina!! :]

next update these are from 17 th which was my birthday....so boobs study..coz y not!!
and the second page is from imagination
You've improved a shit ton in just a couple months, that's nuts! Crazy pacing too man, and you only just turned 17? Man, I wish I was this good 6 months ago xD I hope you keep up those studies as well, and maybe try to do your own imaginative constructive anatomy just to stretch what Hampton's been teaching you I gotta get me a copy of that book too once Amazon get's some in stock, those diagrams look sweet.
StressCavity - lol no no 17th april was my birthday ...i just turned 23
and thanks.... yea the "DRAW EVERY SINGLE DAY" thing is paying off....ive been drawing every single day and that is the biggest factor of my improvement!! :]
A lot of progress, dud! Nice bubs studies and metal photoshop ball, I have to say your photoshop stuffs are all nice. Did you try any environmental studies? And I feel the same about crazy people fagging away 8-15 hours a day, I wish I have force and time to do so
ill_Buny - Thanks !!yea i did try some environments quite a while ago.........im not big on environments though... but id still do some !!
these are just a few updates ....i still have a ton of stuff i need to update here!!
new update....i still have lots of previous stuff that im gonna update soon but this is the latest right now
This one is done from mind
these are all from hamptons!!
wow!! man what a update! Long time no se Been busy with working night and days and I still have some to go. How have you been? Conceptart,org have been down aswell so I really missed seeing your SB. The digitals are looking great and your values with traditional medium and digital is getting really nice. Hamptons study are looking kick ass!
Lets hope Ca stays up now for a while and continue kicking it Seriously in LOVe with the posts in #166.
Looking good man. This may be a simple crit but I would just make sure that you have an electric pencil sharpener close by anytime you sketch. Keep your pencil sharp, and take a lot of care in your line quality. If you focus on that, you will make a big jump in your draftsmanship.
ninaren - working night and day?? damn ... i hope it dosnt stay on for too long ...you need to get proper sleep!! im good !! feeling a bit smart coz im learning names of all the muscles as i go through them in hamptons
Thanks..im trying ....you know before i started this SB i was only into digital...and after so much time i was afraid to draw something traditionally ....so now im working in both mediums ...it feels good
yea i hope this site stays up ..its been going through a lot of changes.
thanks the portrait of the girl was initially black and white value study then i just added colors in layer color mode...it is the only peice im actually proud of. :]
akildee - hey thanks man....yes sharpening a pencil with a knife is such a hassle ...but then again i like both thick and thin lines .....i guess its a matter of personal preference here....but i get what you mean...i do need to focus on improving my line quality!! thanks
this is from hel-looks
the rest are from hamptons...FINALLY i know all the muscules in the arm ...except the palm.. feelin a bit smart now!!
Next update ....studying more hands..they are so complex...but fun
your lines are constant improving and thank you for your feedback on my sb really appreciate it. The study of hamptons and anatomy have really paid off for you and u are filling up pages with pages Impressed. I also like the red head girl, somehow I have always envy red headed females because they look great. Just look at Christina Hendricks from Mad Men. If there is something I can say is that for me her eyes looks slightly abit big. However its great that u do both digital and traditional keep it up, ur awesome
Nice studies in the last post, keep em' going ) Watch the head and ribcage form, though!
ninaren - Thanks :] .. haha yea ..i guess i like red coz its quite a powerful color...usually i suck at painting redheads but i guess this turned out okay!! ah ..Christina Hendricks shes beautiful!! yea i actually did notice that the eyes were a bit big but idk why i just went with it .. i guess i liked it that way so didnt want to change it!! yea i started drawing both ways digital and traditional coz my idol Hyung Tae Kim does that linewrok in traditional and the scan it in and paint digitally....but recently ive started to like traditional for what it is ..you know ..you could be in a forest without any kind of electrical equipment and yet you can still pick up a pencil and a paper and just start drawing...
thanks and u have a good day :]
Nihil_ - thanks :]....i do need to watch the head and ribcage forms....but can you point out some specific examples?? it'll help me alot!! thanks
okay so these are the past updates when the site was down
just a lot of stuff so im not gonna explain everything but know this
some are from hamptons, some are from photo ref and some are from mind
what can I say ur just flushing out hard workouts with the pen! Woo!
Yeah I figured you already knew it about the eyes and sometimes u just wanna bend the proportions abit and experiment
U are getting so good on anatomy it feels like ur driving with a bugatti car ^^ just accelerating.
The only good thing about Ca was down was the drawings that were made but Im so glad its up Keep at it, kick ass as usuall
Thanks for dropping by my SB dude, but holy hell man your figures are crazy!! I can tell you're gonna be a master at anatomy in no time at this rate!
ninaren - Thanks ...character design is what i want to specialize in... so im really focusing on human anatomy at the moment....its funny, people in other threads told me "good luck doing character designs there are so many ppl doing that right now" ...as if im supposed to get scared of that fact and start focusing on other things which im not much intrested in....so i thought the only way to beat this thinking is to get really really good at what i want to do [like exceptionally good] and i might do just fine.....and ofcourse id do other things like environments and props..but they are not important at the moment.
StressCavity - Thanks man...im hoping to get really really good at anatomy...i hope i do okay!!
hands and hands and some more hands
And some practice from deviantart
nice studies man you work hard and improve fast nice stuff from imagination to
Were those hands reffed or are they from imagination? Either way they're super slick. Keep it up dude.
So many studies in your book, it was hard for me to count, just amazing. You are improving
and you are becoming better, I can see the line quality and the essence of your drawings. High
standard indestructible majestic fly on the summer sky. The fun part is when you implement
naked females and breasts, that is when the sky shines the brightest. You keep refreshing the
frozen grapes under the hairy bellies of the wooden apes.
