'Nother sketch Dump... Been working like mad in my small sketchbook so there hasn't been much posted on here lately so I thought I'd regale you with a practice sheet. I may add some of my better pages from my mini sketchbook to the thread SEE YOU GUYS IN THE NEXT ONE! OwO
@LePush: Looking back on my stuff I am cringing at the amount of crap I have produced over the past month on here. It's embarrassing, really XD So yeah.
A pre bed time sketch+color study. Not sure how I did. Feedback? Anyway, here it is
Your heads are looking good, my only suggestion is that when you build the forms maybe draw them bald first to get a better sense of their skull mass and then add hair. You may have done that already but I didn't really see any construction lines for it which is why I'm suggesting it. There pretty well proportionate (way better than mine lol) but I think trying to figure out the foundations in head construction is important
Also, you need to post more man! I wanna see you post some sketchbook pages
Haha I do draw the head bald at first I just do a thorough job of erasing the lines I've been liking your stuff lately too! I have been doing a lot of experimental stuff in my sketchbook (which is tiny by the way, it's like 4 inches by three... Plus it's impossible to scan stuff in )
HAHA! It's been five days! And I have filled a couple pages in my mini sketchbook. All studies n' shite. So here is a study on jellyfish and speculars. I kinda eyeballed it and didn't really use any reference images. So yeah. Thanks StressCavity for the encouragement of specular speculation! :3
COMBO! Just did a quick study on some more texture stuff. This time with brushed metal and rust. Wanted to do some cylinder lighting too. Two birds with one big artsy stone!
Some mechs and doodles thought I'd post 'em :3
Something for a project... but its a secret so SHHHHHHH!
J-44, where ya been man? It's been a whole month
Sweet mech thumbnails btw.
@Stress-Cavity: I AM ALIVE! It's OK I've been on vacation and have been experiencing post vacation hiatus fever. Ergo, not posting anything. I shall remedy that soon but in the meantime I'm going to be doing a lot of practice stuff ._.
@Aether-Tech: Thanks for the advice! I've actually been trying to do some proportion work but everything just seems to come out... Lame.
YOU GUYS! I AM BACK DDDD I just got back from snowboarding in the alps (which was beautiful by the way) and I decided to sit down and actually do something more than a sketch SO here it is A spontaneous tank for the pure and simple joy of spontaneity
About time you come back man Sweet tank, hope you keep posting!
@Stress: I KNOW! IT'S BEEN AGES
@Aether: I did the thumbnail and just decided: why not resort to ortho again? But I am trying to branch out into perspective... Too lazy for all the construction lines ._. Sad, isn't it? XD
@Hatt: Thanks I love that guy :3 I kinda did the rendering process similar to his Cray-fish design lab sub-consciously
You know, XD CA.org has been facing many re-updates but can never seem to get it right! XD PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER, MAN! And here's a sketchydump.
I keep on lagging behind on my updates >.< It used to be that I would update every day! XD I promise I will do more soon But in the meantime. Here is a small thingy.
SKETCHY SKETCHESS! I had some fun doing these while watching documentaries
Read dis stuff! Please! Thanks :d
Sloth, I can tell you that you have definitely improved a lot. Your brushwork and general style development has gotten better, but you shouldn't worry about that! Just draw everyday and progress will always follow
@StressCav: I have been pretty busy with school and with a job I got recently. But I've been doing a lot of stuff in my new sketchbook! It's a4 sized so I should be able to scan some stuff in But NO EXCUSES! I will do as you say and keep updating :3
@Andrewg: Thanks! I have been getting a lot of practice lately.
Hey, I just saw your sketchbook, and I've got to say you definitely already show a unique style! Your face proportions have gotten better over time.
Are you doing any specific course or study plan? Or just drawing and improving for now?
@Mustawd (Awesome name!): I'm not doing any study course or anything like that. I'm in highschool, so yar, just improving for the moment. XD Thanks for the compliments!
So! I have done quite a bit during the awful period of time where CA was down. Here they are!
Aaaand for some reason I can't post anymore... Huh.
you're definitely improving! especially the thumbnails and the way you paint! I'd say you could work on making the faces less wide, in general the rule is an eye width or maybe even less from the edge of the eye to the side of the face. And when you draw them at angles try to keep that rule going, use cheekbones as a guide of sorts . Good luck!
I dig those little bird dudes, it'd be fun to see you try out other animals too with your own little twist. Render out some of those bots too! Gotta stretch every brain muscle
