    Cabbage Caterpillar's Sketchbook

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! I'm a newbie to concept art, and just started learning how to paint.

    I’m currently working *edit* part-time in an accounting position, but I really want to make a career out of art. I know I have a long hard road ahead of me so any advice or help you can give me would be super helpful!! Thanks!

    Here are some studies I’ve done this last week.

    Really nice work! Your proportions and everything are really freaking good! Especially considering you're just starting... it's pretty amazing. The values are decent and you can focus more on getting accurate with values but I see with your picture of the person in the bathtub, the values are already much better in the second version so I don't think you'll have much trouble with that!

    The imagination paintings are pretty interesting and kinda funny.

    hey pretty nice start, keep on working on the values and structure as a start and then push it to color maybe after you feel comfortable with values.

    keep it up

    Thanks for the comments!
    @bobmeatbag: The stuff on your sketchbook looks awesome, especially the latest character designs!! really like your ideas, and the characters really got their own personality and story behind them.

    @Sycra: Thanks for the kind comments - Gonna try the tip you gave with the adjustment layer stuff today with the bath one. Really appreciate your encouragements... I'll look harder to get accurate values than to rush thru the whole painting. ps. i like your icons lol

    @m0uS3r: Thanks for the tip. I tried color a bit few days ago, it was a complete disaster @@ just means more value studies for the time being... And wow, Your sketbook looks amazing. I really like this one especially: almost feel like I could touch the uneven skin texture http://i583.photobucket.com/albums/s...tilestudy1.jpg

    Some sketches from last night: Did some Sargent copies first and found it a great way to start.

    Welcome to CA.

    You seem to make some obvious mistakes when it comes to perspective.
    Distances in space, perfect squares, axis of ellipses etc.
    I recommend the book "Perspective" by Gwen White and of course Carl Dobsky's downloads here on CA.

    That said, you're on the right track so keep drawing and posting.

    @Zelda: Thanks for pointing that out, and for the recommendations - You're right, I've been struggling a lot with perspective, and so far have learned some perspective from Loomis's book and watching Scott Robertson's video on drawing cars/planes. They sure help, but sometimes I get stuck when the stuff gets more advanced. Definitely gonna try to get both of those materials you mentioned. Thanks again!

    From tonight: more work on the bath girl - The goal tonight was really trying to nail down the values. Had a lot of trouble with the nose and chin (and now it's the hand @@) they took forever.. frustrating, but I will keep going!

    Hey great studies...and I dunno if you're trying to challenge yourself or not, but on the bath girl it seems like, you are utilizing pressure sensitivity, it would really help to blend your values more, which would probably make it easier to feel like it's finished. It's looking good though the values are pretty accurate! Keep up the hard work.

    @Psychobuddy: Thanks for stopping bys! Yes I thought I'd better learn the hard way, with full opacity. The edges look really ugly right now, so definitely I'll try using pressure sensitivity when I'm closer to finishing this. My goal is to study as much as you are, with that crazy amount of work on your sketchbook O_o

    Some sketches for tonight. So grateful that there's pixel lovely - did some gesture poses:

    Thanks for visiting Blazing. I've got to continue my studies, and keep it consistent. You've got great studies in your sketchbook too!

    Recent stuff: een trying to learn proportions of the head with Loomis, then I saw the exact tutorial I needed on PencilKing's website , it made it so much easier. Thanks Sycra! gonna go through more of your videos.. they actually help A LOT, especially for imagination drawings.
