    MrFrenik Yeah its great and it teaches you so much, still having some difficulties using only that to choose colors. I took the study further but didnt finish it to the point where I wanted it :/.

    Sady Thanks!

    lennon Thanks! Yeah I find Peter Hans dynamic sketching so cool, starting with primitives and going simple to complex, something I have to do more of haha.

    LtPlissken You hit me right in the feels everytime man, and you are completely right about the frustration thing I have a tendency to be a bit too hard on myself but I always think how will I improve otherwise?
    I plan on doing art my entire life simply because I cant stand not being able to express my ideas but my lack of skills can bring me down alot of times so thats what Im working on haha.
    Thanks for the comment I really appreciate it.

    Darkstrider Thanks! My linework is really something I need to work on haha, my pencils often get really messy and the scan doesnt help at all.

    Escavalier Yeah my edges need alot of work, I heard studying clouds was a great way of improving your edges so I might give that a try

    Jkilla Thanks! I dont do enough creatures, they used to be my favorite thing to draw a few years back. I'll have to start doing them again haha

    KyTran Thanks!


    So I decided to start Noah's Art Camp along with one of my friends so I have no excuse at all not to paint!
    Really enjoying the first few days but the number of studies we have to do is crazy and exciting haha.

    So here is what I've been up to for the past 3 or 4 days along with some pencil sketches that I'll scan in later

    First week is Master Studies.

    10-15 min value compositions.

    Learning so much

    V3T Thanks man!

    So I got my ass kicked by color studies and also learned a whoole lot about color in the process so here are some of the color studies.
    Started off limiting my time but ended up spending too much time on some of them so I didnt get to do as many

    Starting week nr 2 with a better understanding of color and awareness of how horrible I am at managing my time haha.

    The color studies are looking great, combined with the old master
    studies creates you an indestructible carapace which can go through
    fire and showers of small meteor stones. I look into my magic crystal
    and I can see you coming up with some gorgeous life drawings in
    the near future. Till our next meeting, take it easy and keep working hard.

    Great colour studies Avon, the thumbnails read really well. The latest Sargent painting is showing a lot of promise too. Keep working at it

    Thank you for posting in my sketchbook, there's always things you can say, don't worry if you think I'm good or not, I really still need to work on a lot of things.
    Your studies are doing pretty well, one thing though; you keep missing the angles of the features, I recommend using a sight stick to make sure things like the eyes are aligned together.

    Jacky-Boy Thanks I really appreciate it

    PeteJ Yeah my portraits need a lot of work :/ Thanks for stopping by

    So just some recent stuff Im not too satisfied with, might even take some of this down
    The imagination sketches I had a time limit so they look super rough and Im not too happy with them
    Also my first still life, it was a bit of a challenge but really fun.
    And some color quick studies

    heya avon!
    ive done studies like this (are you doing noahs artcamp?) and they helped me a ton
    keep it up and dont get demotivated, they will really pay off. same for those still lifes, it looks to me youre off to a great start with that. keep it up!

    Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.


    [...] what concerns us here is not imagination itself, but rather creative imagination; the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization.
    - Igor Stravinsky, The Poetics of Music

    aks9 Thanks!

    So had some intense exam weeks but still found some time for painting but not enough really.
    Tried digital self portraits from life for the first time and they felt pretty weird but really fun
    Spent more time on the first one but the second one ended up just being a lay in.
    Will be posting more now that the exams are over.

    For head studies, I would suggest picking whatever way you are most comfortable and do lots of sketches of them in every angle. Don't worry about making a face that looks like someone. Just a carefully constructed head. Good luck and keep working hard!

    V3T Thanks man!

    Applying some head studies I've been doing and just generally messing around
    Please tell me if the colors look weird on your monitor, my laptop screen seems to display colors a bit strangely compared to other screens.

    Great energy in your work! Also seeing a lot of improvement in proportions. 15 years old? That's fantastic. You're on your way. Keep doing what you're doing... always be curious about how to do things better and you'll keep improving.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    hey Avon! great going there! you've made a lot of progress. hmm, I do think you should spend some more time measuring before you actually draw. espec when doing life pieces. close one eye and your your pen to measure distances. head height vs head width. tye eye position relative to the middle line. then check those on your paper. after that you can just fill in the blanks and your always safe. well, remember to remeasure after putting in the basic shapes maybe. I'll be back, see how your break-in into the industry is going

    p sage Thank you!

    jovilicious Thanks

    féfé73 Thank you!

    ashess Thank you I will try that method! Thanks for stopping by

    Flaskpost Yeah I can get a little impatient sometimes haha, have to slow down and focus. Thanks for the advice

    Danny_KThank you I will

    Falapoco Thank you!


    So I hope this sketchbook isnt too boring to look through but I havent really been doing anything that appealing really, am starting to work on finishing things which is really challenging me and Im never satisfied with the results but I guess I just need to finish and move on to the next one and hopefully get a little better every time

    But here are some quick female figure studies/gestures and some practice in drawing faces and I guess I could just as well put a WIP of the painting Im working on even though it looks pretty rough and pretty horrible at the moment.
    Thanks for looking

    ashess Ah I'll try to fix that, and thanks!

    Daumis Thanks I'll keep an eye on my saturation and contrast next time

    So I traveled to Iceland for the holidays and didnt have much time for digital stuff there so basically just did a bunch of sketchbook stuff that hasnt been scanned yet, but here's a final for the first ''finished'' digital painting I've ever done, not as polished as it could be but I feel I can do so much better that I'd rather just call it finished and learn from it.
    I dont like it at all since my workflow is all messed up and my knowledge of colors is limited hence the horrendous colors and it took more work and frustration than it should have but I guess you have to start somewhere

    Avon! Your sketchbook is great! I just had to stop by in appreciation of you stopping by my sketchbook! I really loved seeing your progression. I noticed in your latest updates that your proportions are getting off track, don't forget to keep practicing your bodily proportions. You are doing so well, and you have much dedication! I am really liking the pink highlights on the latest update.

    Hey, you've improved a fair bit. Keep it up with those studies! At this stage it's best to just grind things out.

    Also hey, another Art Camper! I'm finding it so difficult to keep up with the work. XD How are you finding it?

    Nice color studies, seems you are on the right track...
    I like the portrait sketch in #112, try to focus more on anatomy and proportions, construction of the face...
    keep going

    AdrienneRose - Thanks! I really do need some work on my proportions hahah. Thanks for stopping by

    Umbravita - Hey thanks! I really didn't work as hard as I should have but I did learn quite a few things. How did you like the camp?

    Jablar - Thanks I will



    Hey guys!
    So Im back, its been almost a year since I posted here and I thought I'd post here to get some feedback.
    Been an interesting year, started high school and made some awesome new friends with similar interests.

    Been trying step up my painting meanwhile so I would really appreciate some feedback

    Here's one thats really close to finished but I just cant seem to get the surroundings to work, especially the sky and trying to achieve a sort of vibrance and atmosphere.

    I would really like some critiques on this one.


    Ill be posting some sketches and unfinished stuff later on

    Have a nice one guys and thanks for looking.

    WIP

    At this rate, you'll have no trouble breaking into the industry. Keep up the great work, and hey, thanks for the visit on my SB!

    Critiques on your latest? Well, her head looks to be sitting too far forward on her neck. There are little things like that. Just keep practicing, and you'll get it.
