    Road to Badassery

    First post. Gotta work hard, man. I want to push myself as hard as I can. Also I would love critiques and advice on what to study/work on.

    Environment practice. About 4-5 hours. Spent half the time plotting out the perspective(which probably isnt correct)

    Could you post the perspective plotting you used for that image? I'm not great at perspective myself but I put it into photoshop and couldn't find things lining up anywhere really. Other than the perspective, you have a nice sense of light and composition. I look forward to more work from you!

Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    The colors in that environment are a really good direction, I like it a lot.
    The first image looks like a daring start... haha.

    Focus on proportions and accuracy in your silhouettes, and study anatomy body part by body part, starting from your worst one.

    About the environment, the main thing I would change is the indication of people - they are not as loose as the rest of the painting, try to make them a loose silhouette, try to see where a bigger, more coarse brush can take you.

    Good work so far and keep it up man!

    The Pariano:With perspective lines. It's not entirely correct mind you. I find it tough to plot vanishing points that are outside the canvas
    Shinkan:Thanks for the advice. I realize now how disjointed the silhouettes feel in relation to the rest of the painting.

    Hey, Panama! Welcome to the boards. Your sketchbook already shows a lot of potential. I'm liking the asymmetrical masked lady piece. Your environment piece also looks pretty good, but the perspective feels a bit wonky. Can't wait to see you progress! Keep pushing.

    edit: ah, sorry! you posted while i was forming my message. D=

    Eroquii: Thanks for the kind words. I see the mistakes now but I guess that's the whole point of a sketchbook right? So that other people can point out mistakes I can't see and improve from there.

    Another environment practice. This time focusing more on getting the perspective right before anything else.
