    Lurid's sketchbook

    I am stuck with my progress! Pretty frustrating, but I'm sure I'll break out of it eventually.

    Some quick face sketches and some crappy figure drawings. I just got through Michael Hampton's Figure Drawing: Design and Invention and I'm also reading Color and Light by James Gurney on the side.
    Design and Invention was a super fun book to go through and I found it made a lot of things so much more clearer to me. It has helped me a lot more than my figure drawing book by Andrew Loomis, I believe. I'm planning on taking some of the online courses at CGMA this October, so that's been serving as another thing to push me forward in my art.

    So I got pretty frustrated with the piece I'm currently working on, so I've started again from scratch. I just noticed her face might look a little off, but now I can fix it :]

    I think your use of colors is stronger than your use of values. That face in #4 looks quite good!

    Using very dark/light value to emphasize certain parts would make your work pop out more. For example, the green guy in #6 might benefit from lighter highlights.

    Thanks for the input. I was hoping to get around to doing some value studies soon, but my over a year old cintiq has put me off of doing that since the colours and brightness are way off now. I can work around that until I get a new one though. Again, thanks for the advice. It's a great feeling when people are willing to help you along :]

    A little study of a chameleon and some feet and figure drawing things. I feel like I really lack in being able to create interesting or realistic shapes when it comes to clothing, so I tried to do some very quick contour drawings to get the feeling of the unique shapes.

    I feel you shouldn't try to do soft transitions with airbrush-type brushes just yet. It frankly makes pictures look cheap, and you have much more precise control when you do it with a hard brush.

    Saying that, you're improving! Keep doing studies.

    Yeah I agree with you on that. I can't quite pull it off yet. Your words are greatly appreciated.
