    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.















    These are just for fun:

    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.

    Tomcat: Last night I was feeling pretty frustrated with figures, and felt I was so behind that I would never catch up. Your words really encouraged me. It means a lot!! Thank you.

    Just a quick painting for tonight.. wanted to do some more Bammes but ran out of time!!
    It's hard with job in the morning, I feel so sleepy at work. Hope tomorrow I'll have more time to draw.

    spent most of the night working on a website design for my friend's restaurant. (yep looks totally amateur lol)
    Did the logo first many months ago - never knew designing logos would be so hard until I actually had to do it myself!
    Now I look at logos everywhere on the streets and get impressed. lol
    Attached here just for fun.

    District 9 continued on... HELP!! lol Anyone have good tips on painting grass? Anything would be greatly appreciated, as I am just scrambling with texture brush.

    It's had to make it look right - texture brush made things a bit easier but the look is somewhat unnatural. I wonder if grass has any special highlights we should worry about or any other area to look out for? It just all look pretty random to me right now @_@

    @Tef: Thanks for visiting, And for the encouragement man!! Actually it's not really speedy at all though hahaha just looks that way cuz I'm a sloooowasss lol
    (I have to admit it took like 3 hours just to add the grass, person, and details @@) Hope I can get faster.


    Some really shitty imaginary stuff from tonight. Drawing from imagination is SOOOOOO much harder than drawing from ref!!!!! f***





    The idea is a woman stripper in a spaceship. She can't breathe unless she's in this stupid pill thing, but she still wanna be sexy. (lol yeah i know talk about a failed attempt)

    @SatuThanks so much for being so encouragining!! Colors is super hard for me when I try to do imagination stuff. Hope I can get better, for now I'm being a wimp by sticking with monochrome. lol
    @Kame Thanks so much for visting! I love using pencil and charcoal (I am scared of paint! lol) Need tons of work when it comes to actually getting values though :/

    Been over a month since I last post... BADBADBAD
    I have started to paint, they look pretty terrible, but I am a bit less scared of colors now. That's a good thing.

    you have been a busy bee i see, drawings look better and better by the day, i wont get into painting grass at this point if i were you but just continue with the value study because you are doing great , flat shapes is killer ) just go with that for now do a bunch of these studies get comfortable with the values and then step into the realm of details.

    remember details and things like this don't look great if they don't have a solid base to sit on

    @Vice & Anthony Thanks for being so encouraging! I wish I could do something like that from imagination... gotta keep practicing hard.

    Here's so imagination stuff for today.. it's suppose to be thumbnails but they ended up taking me 2 hours. I really suck at this.

    Woahh Thanks for all the comments!!

    @Tef
    haha thanks for being so encouraging! I'm still have scared feelings toward painting, but I tend to overcome that when I get bored of sketching.. lol so I guess being bored can be a good thing too.

    @Mouser
    Hey mouser, thanks for the advice. Actually this really helps, because I was thinking if I should continue on that painting or not, I mean it could be more detailed - but now I think I know the answer after thinking about what you suggested. I should just go over more paintings (like think just big picture) So I don't get myself caught up on small details. Thanks for dropping by and for the helpful comment!! really appreciate it.

    @Kevin
    Thanks for dropping by Kevin, your sketches look amazing!! Thanks for the encouragement - I still have a ton to learn for perspective, but so far the basic stuff has helped me a lot in paying attention to the 3D space! Eventhough my stuff still looks shitty lol, I hope it will get better later on with more perspective knowledge.

    @Absorben
    Thanks for stopping by!! Do you usually sketch on the computer now? Cuz your manga stuff looks great, I don't think it matters whether it's pencil or digital...

    @Bobmeatbag
    Hahaha thanks Bob, my butt is still very very huge and wide, I think I need to work harder before I invest in a pillow. When I get there, I'll need some tips from you on how to live the buttless life....hahaha


    Trying to learn the neck muscles - mainly the long-name one "stenocleidomastoid" Sorry for keep writing it out on every page, I always found it easier to memorize when I keep writing the word down, otherwise I always forget it very easily @@ I need to know what the word *looks like* lol
    Not sure exactly how the levator scapulae looks, it seems like only a small part shows, and most of it is covered by the Trapezius. I think I need to find more reference to look at for the different positions. Most of the stuff on google either shows it without trapezius, or with trapezius covering the whole levator scapulae. If anyone has some good recommendations please let me know!! Thanks so much in advance.
