Well, you know there is three Dimensions, I'm quite sure of that
You imagine that there is 3 Planes that are in a 90° angle to one another and don't directly face the viewer. You put multiple of those planes(starting with one and multiplying it) on your blob. You then trace where the plane hits the blob. After you've gone through your whole blob doing a number of those(depends on how high your blob was) you change the angle of the plane by 90°. Imaginary. Should not be a problem. once again, chose an angle that does not directly face the viewers.. and it doesn't have to be exactly 90° either, you are just aiming for that in your mind. Then do the same thing. The first lines going through your blob already describe it a bit, to think about where the blob would hit the new plane.. and then repeat with a last plane. Hope you did now understand my exercise!

Nownow.. you get too lazy to take pictures and last time you told me to post everything poupoupou.. (I actually don't mind it though xD)

And yes.. I agree.. ca is damn slow lately.

Nysta: o-oh okay. Youre too cool >___< ahhckk. I'll have to try it out and observe your practices then. Yep lazy hypocrite here C:< bahaha. :"( I'll post it soon

Zou: THank you!! Had lots of fun with you yesterday 8D

Woops missed a day, but I really didn't have anything...
uhhh still too lazy to upload that tiny lil charcoal work
I wished to begin learning about atmospheric perspective, since it gives a general idea of colors in wide spaces.

I'm aware many of the colors are off now >___< just need lots more practice I suppose
All refs with full 100opa

a tiny little blend

I tried to look outside my window...to show that I tried to look from life e_ e
but it was too bright for my sensitive eyes. it hurts

5. Really nice studies on colour Pou! Good start. You kind of lost it on the last one, it doesn't have as much of that tightness and uniformity of the previous ones, but dont stop there with the attempts of life! The good thing is you'll get so much variety depending on the weather for colours to choose, would be nice to see. You rock though, your level of workload still inspires, even if you feel you dont do enough as it is, hehe.

Uhm.. I'm way more lazy than you are Not like that's something to be proud of. I really have quite much of a lack in self control - or tend to swap my interest out completely randomly sometimes to put it to other words.

I'm not too sure, but I think that playing a game called Trackmania Sunrise helped me quite a bit with thinking in 3 Dimensions. I don't play any games currently, but yeah.. I'm always watching everything even when I'm not drawing - which obviously I'm not doing enough. If you don't know the game.. I guess it's worth a look(not necessarily good to play it because games are addictive.. but I'm sure you can find videos).

Now obviously there is newer games from the same publisher out there, but I think that this one still is one of the most interesting ones to look at. I mean.. our job is to bring something on the screen, so why not look at stuff that is at the screen. And if it's not a screen it's still pretty much 2D and should look 3D.

If just watching won't cut it for you.. you might want to pick a few frames and to a perspective study? It's pretty much already simplified and there is crazy stuff going on with the tracks. And blocks.. yeah.. mostly it is the cubes that are interesting. And the game has a system of blocks(though not as high as in the other dimensions) where you can set one thing to each block and create the weirdest tracks. Yeah.. love building them.

Might sound all weird, but I really can't recommend stuff other than stuff I think helped me so hey.. give it a look?

Regarding the color studies.. which you are obviously tackling right now: Working in full opacity is a good method to block stuff in. If you want to go more into detail, you should swap to working with opacity again, at least in my opinion. The only real alternative I see would be the smudge tool. But yes.. only after you blocked in your whole painting. I tend to work with opacity and then repeatedly adjust stuff until it looks about right. BUT.. yeah, I will have to try that full opacity stuff still. I did try it for a very short time, but not to finish anything with it. So yeah.. I can just give an opinion on it before I've actually done it.. so it's more of an assumption than anything else.

7. Woah! The amount of work in your sketchbook makes me realize all the days I have spent not drawing, keep going!

8. hey Pou

yeah , it was great time , drawing with you

the color studies are very good, i wish i had your awareness when i started color studies.

the values are good too, you have a good basis to keep your learning journey.

thanks for the no-opacity push up

stay sharp and good luck

9. hellp pou, i already commented on the group so im just gonna drop this link here

Suda: Haha yeah! I ended up taking 5 mins or so for the last one. Just posted so people didn’t guilt me about not choosing reference from life XD. Thank you though, I appreciate your words and advice

Nysta: I wouldn’t have thought about the game o__o I’ll check it out. Thanks!! I needa do plenty of perspective studies. I definitely agree with you, I actually did that yesterday Youll see now muehehe. OOH DO IT THEN.Thanks for your time.

Falapoco: Thanks . Seems you draw often as well from your sb

Zou: You knowwwww I said they aren’t as good and I gave you my secrets! Thank you

Buxu: Huhhhh the reviews are pretty mixed, but I’ll read the reviews a bit more. Only scanned the surface. Thanks!

All imagination:

Speedpaint

color of b&W piece, must add bg to it
YES IT SUCKS YO. I must study the arm, hands, perspective, EVERYTHINGGG woot

straight to color... i don't like it now
Was just a test, doesn't mean I hate it any less though ahha

Okay skintone studies. Uhhh Providing ref to shame myself of the differences ( in hue & proportion )that are obvious.
Must learn how to apply the colors without muddy.
All full opacity to start off with
Did challenge with Zou :3

11. Great work! Nothing to add. Gonna work as hard as You from now on

12. The blonde girl turned out more amazing after some blend

i'm sure it will get better with fancier brush (chalk or oil)

keep up mate

13. Your study time is cracking you up some new grounds, discovering certain areas
of the backstage. You have already found that little golden line hidden in the distant
side of the frosty rainbow. I like the way you handle your paintings and I like the way
you approach art in general. The studies that you are doing, they are sticking right
to your skin, you are a quick learner, there are students that have to do a million and
billion life drawings, so they could get the hang of the basics, but as I realize in your case,
it’s almost enough to do it once or twice. I am really admiring your progress and evolution.
Maybe you are a natural or something, but you are good with colors, values and the brush
work is just amazing. I like that living sad painting and I like that girl above that holding
an axe, may I ask what brush do you use to get those strokes, what opacity, I just want
to paint relaxed like that. I am sorry for not being regular here, and I want to thank
you for such a detailed review and reply in my book. I think that being around you
pays off in each and every aspect, so I admire the people who can do so.

14. A fantastic sketchbook - well done, I found it very inspiring.

Bato: Welcome back after your short break~ Work even harder than me! I’m lazy

Zou: What does the oil brush in PS look like? Thank you same to you

Ltpliss: Haha I’m on the verge of the frosty rainbow!! I’m not a natural… It’s about what you do with the studies. Observe a bit more, and try to think about why something looks the way it does. If you can’t figure out/don’t know why then look it up or ask me :3 I want to help you succeed as well if possible. Artists should help each other out. The brush is a rectangular brush with 100% opacity, around 60% flow for blending. The spacing is down low to minimize streaks. You should use 100% flow at the start to reduce the amount of muddiness and to help define edges
No problem buddy!

Toffeeliz: Thank you ^__ ^

Midterms are this week..... Excuses D:<

Also I looked in the mirror this morning and my face shape has appeared to change.
It's either my observation skills have improved or my actual facial shape has changed
... I'm hoping its the former xD

Color studies. These took way too long, at max 20min for ea
Learned some new stuff though

Before anyone says something, the turtle is an actual photo

16. hey, thanks for the critique on my sketchbook - my textures are just horrible, I really need to work on that, thanks for reminding me tho :'D

I like your style, the girls look very cute and I think the no opacity studies are gonna help a lot
maybe you could experiment some more with brushes, sometimes you're gonna find one that is gonna speed up your progress a lot or just gives a nice effect
