I'm Hoping to give and take from the Ca community, improve and help others improve. Please feel free to give me your input no mater how harsh and if you'd like me to look at some work and give you my input don't hesitate to let me know!

    Comments and input welcome and would be appreciated!

    Hi, in case you didn't see me respond to you, I just wanted to say again, thanks for posting on my thread! =] I love your environment study; I think you captured the small patches of color really well. When I've tried to do that before, I go so slowly that the light has changed midway through it =P I look forward to seeing more, keep it up! =]

    AdrianNagorski: thanks for stopping buy!

    NoktPapilio: Thank you NoktPapilio! I've stopped by your Sketch book several times since. I wanted to wait for a few more updates before I replied so I can better guess what suggestions might be most helpful but as i'm writing this I see you've updated recently! I have some suggestions i'll post after this!

    You're at a VERY common stage that almost every artist goes through, including myself. It's the stage where you're outlining things rather than using value to define form. I'll post in your sketchbook about it. Keep working hard!

    Where i'm currently at with the dragon painting. I looked at some great art my amazing artists and it help me identify some major flaws in the image so hopefully there will be more significant changes in the next update. Input is welcome and appreciated!

    Some sketches I did recently. My pencil sketches are usually pretty sporadic, most of the time they're just doodles I do when I'm waiting for things.

    Here's where I am with the dragon. I've been going back and forth with the design and composition a lot but still not satisfied. It still needs lot of lovin but I have to put it down for now. Going to work on some Halloween stuff.

    Thanks for stopping by! I've been busy but it's almost done! NoKtPapilio whenever I go to view your sketchbook it loads really slowly. It could be because I'm using Google Chrome (I think Fire Fox is faster for CA) but it might be good to go back and re-upload the large images as smaller ones.

    Woooooh, I'm liking what I'm seeing KyTran. Your values and colors are looking good, as well as your stroke economy. On the dragon piece, it seems to be stretched height wise, thinking it could be that you pulled back from the edge when painting the neck and head. You know, most artists when they draw or paint will shy away from the edge. A good way to alleviate the issue is to make the image bigger, then crop it down to what ever size you need when you are finished. This way everything will still look correct even if it runs of the page. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Palladium, you're totally right and expanding the canvas sounds like a great remedy, i'll try that! Thanks for your insight. I put that one down with the intention of coming back to it but haven't gotten around to finishing it yet. By the way Bruce Lee is one of my idols, thought it was pretty cool you had a quote by him.

    One of the most enjoyable sketches I've ever done! I needed less brush strokes than usual and the strokes just went where I wanted them to go.

    Hey there Ky Tran, thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. Liking the updates since the last time I visited post 25 is my favorite so far. Also really like the subtleness of your colors. And you need to post more often Ky.

    I really do need to post more. I've been working on freelance so I'm a little tied up at the moment but I'll try!
