    Some quick gestures. I have to work on anatomy, I know.

    And a portrait.

    Drawn with markers (I'm a noob). It looks ridiculous and the bad photoquality doesn't help at all.

    Hallo kopfscheu, wie gehts? Wilkommen auf cA sketchbooks.
    Ich hoffe mal du wirst mehr mit uns teilen, es sieht prima aus bit jetzt!

    Na ja, my german, I hope didn't scare you haha xD
    Like i said, good work so far and try working with bigger brushes.
    Try constructing, and look up loomis, bridgman, vilppu etc and draw after them
    (sorry if you know them already and i'm just talking nonsense here)

    Have a great day!

    hey kopfscheu,from looking at you studies I would recommend spending equal amounts of time making value
    studies,once you capture the right values it is much easier to capture the hue and saturation of the color.
    also do other fundumental exercizes-perspective,construction,gesture.
    you show some knowledge already,isolate your weaknesses and work with purpose.

    This is John Malkovich wearing a raven on his head.
    I set myself a limit of one hour, so it isn't finished (the raven has no feets and its wing is all wrong and John has no real ears, the blendig isn't done and so on) - perhaps I put a little more work in it, because I like the idea.

    Yay.
    And a crappy marker sketch of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    I really love the skin you're painting. You portraits are just lovely and really alive!

    I would suggest to start with a grey background on those digital paintings, though. This would be easier on your eyes and generally helps speeding up the process.

    General, full body anatomy seems to be your weakest point at the moment. Go and fill a few pages with gesture studies and keep up the great work

    hello kopfscheu ,that malkovich study is pretty good i like the sense of form and structure it has.
    one thing I would suggest is to simplify your shapes and reduce your amount of values you work with,when copying think of the simple big planes,versus just copying what you see.
    I think it helps when you describe the form with the minimal amount of information- you want your message to be clear and simple(at least I do!),you can always add stuff later.

    Hiya! Welcome to Conceptart, pretty nice things in this sketchbook,
    With your last upload the painting with the boat looks kinda weird because u used opacity, it's like you can see through the boat.

    Keep it going!

    See my latest Sketchbook work!
    Feel Free to comment!

    @GrayPersona
    Thanks. Yeah, I know, I paint all those - let's say it with Bob Ross - happy little accidents and details. Should study more fundamentally. Like you said before: value studies and construction. I did a lot of grayscale studies the past weeks, but it sucked. Ok, I sucked.

    @Deceptive
    Thanks to you, too. Let's call it a ghostship?! I know. That was my first landscape ever and the first try and fail with Painter. No good combination, I think ;-)
    ------

    Something completely different: my first sculpture. It looks really strange, but hey: I had the biggest fun of my life (and the most dirtiest work area ever).

    oh wow your attention to detail in the wrinkles of the face are awesome!
    it seems like your pieces in traditional medium are much stronger than the digital ones (but the john malkovich one is freakin' great )

    Great work!

    Wow, these are great pieces of work. I could really use some advice on using colours effectively. I’m a digital artist mainly but your advice would still help a great deal. I’m working on a piece at the moment but I’m struggling to exaggerate the colours and get the vibrant lighting effects.

    Thank you

    Thanks a lot for your compliment. The sculpture-thingy is only about 2 inches high, so I just cut the wrinkles in with a little knife. As easy as that.

    I forgot to upload my second sculpture which I'm still working on. The beasty little horns constantly drop off - looks like my devil doesn't want to be a devil ;-)

    Really cool portraits! And the sculptures are coming along nicely. As others have said, watch your values and try doing some greyscale studies. Also focus on getting the major planes in on the faces before getting too caught up on the details. Keep it up

    Great start to a sketchbook. Your marker sketches are in no way crappy that one of Philip Seymour Hoffman looks pretty damn good. You digital stuff looks good too, but like everyone has already said greyscale studies are good way to start off. Especially if digital painting is new to you. Oh and I'd like to see more anatomy stuff from you : P

    Not much else to say for now. Your posting regurarly, so just keep that up and your good : )

    A lot of nice work here :)
    Im no expert but one of the best advice I got for gestures and drawing from life is to look at your subject more than you look at your drawing.
    In other words - let your eyes dictate your hand. Your strokes will become much more confident, and by focusing on the subject you can start to break down the forms figure out the anatomy much better :)

    Keep posting :)

    Lovely studies! That Hannibal piece at the top of the page is ace! I envy you ink work. The last post is excellent. Great communication of form, nice value ranges with the hatching, just solid all the way around. Keep posting!

    Quick 15min sketch.
    Grayscale studies are really hard, but I learn a lot from them.

    Looking good!
    You can push the highlights a little brighter. The brightest areas like on his nose tip or his forehead or his lip can go up to almost white.
    Sometimes the trick I would use is put an actual grayscale next to what im working on so I remember to push the light as bright as possible and the shadow as dark as possible

    Really great head studies, but I would suggest maybe trying to do more constructed work from imagination or full bodies.

    I know. It's just: I like painting heads and the plan is to "manage" heads first. I simply have the feeling that the whole anatomy thing makes no sense with my skill-level at the moment (see the actual pic).
    ---
    To cut a long story short: another 1h head ;-)
    And a nude pose I'm working on. Done in 5 minutes so it basically looks like poo.

    The upload malfunction is killing me.

    Did this one from imagination.
    The eyes are still off, despite the fact that I corrected them three times.

    A portrait which I'm currently working on.
    Have to learn how to use pencils without unintentionally smudging the whole picture.
