Hello everyone, nice to meet you all. These are my sketches and works (traditional and digital) all mixed up. Time to continue learning new stuff so throw some ideas/critique/questions if you have time while visiting here.
New posts start somewhere at the end of page three .

Welcome to CA! Great start with those pictures, and I really like the color scheme on the last one, as well as painterly feel to it, it shows that you have a traditional background. Hope ya finish it and post more.
Oooh, nice painting.
The figure is working fine, in my opinion the weakest areas are the forest on the background and the perspective. I can't make sense of it, with the trees, sofa and lines on the ground pointing each to different horizon lines.
Practising painting thumbnails (and environments), used about 10minutes max to each. Mainly done with one brush too. Feels like a good warm up practise. Used random ref images and painted with really zoomed out canvas so that I had no chance to start detailing these.
A bit of last night sketching, traditional this time. Lingonberries to A5 sized sketchbook with pencil. And my scanner eating up the finest lines. Probably it's mad at me 'cause I've let it collect dust for a while.
Traditional again, A5 size, black graphic pencil. This time anatomy study from "the artists complete guide to facial expressions" book by Gary Faigin. Face and facial bones to try to learn where different stuff goes to. Scribbles underneath the drawing are my notes about this stuff.

Drawing face at night, so late it could be said it's early results faces which you can cut in half and make two faces of. Seriously speaking flipping the image really helps, but not at night. Going to sleep now.
Hey! Good work so far, uhm the proportions in the last face aren't bad, although I think you need to spend some time working out the features. They are uhm very simple, the way you've done them, very symbolic of what the features actually look like. I guess an example is the eyes, if you look there are no lids...but yeah I mean I get if you were tired haha we all have those drawings. Either way, keep it up!
Hey man thanks for dropping by my SB. Yours is looking really good. I really like the environment thumbnails, would like to see some more of them! Also really like the colors you managed to get into that knights face. Keep it up!
