    Cherubea's Sketchbook

    Chelsea, longtime lurker and finally feeling OK about posting some things. I have some experience with digital art and illustration, but I've been reluctant to call myself an artist; it's only recently that I'm beginning to feel confident enough to even make anything after an almost 4 year art slump. I'm really hoping that here my confidence and skills will grow, and maybe in the process I'll figure out what I aspire to. I'm excited to be here!

    To start things off, here are a bunch of landscape paintings I've done in the past week. These are all from reference photos, not taken by me.

    Right now I'm mainly working on using different photoshop brushes and improving my color and value senses.

    Great studies How much time do you spend on each? I always end up working for way too long on my studies, yours have some nice strokes going on though, that tell enough of the story sort of thing. I even recognised one of the photos from somewhere The one with the mountains and green water. I saw you posted on the Daily Sketch Group, I'm glad! Have you lurked any in this forum http://www.conceptart.org/forums/for...UDY-OF-THE-DAY? I know I have but just not made myself start, might be something for you and your studies!

    Nemodab,thank you! I started these studies thinking I would work on speed painting, but each of them took 90 minutes or more. Too long maybe for speed painting, but I'm learning some useful things otherwise. Choosing a good brush for a particular texture is what I get caught up in--maybe it's indecision makes my studies so long I'm hoping to do DSG every day, and yes! I saw that forum and was actually planning on doing one of those studies today!

    Yea one of the best tips going around these days with digital art is to just stick with chalk or basic brush, even if it's fun - custom brushes don't make the artist My "speedy" ones take a day of work on and off x) so 90 minutes I'd say is good!

    So I had a lot of momentum going into last week, but I managed to lose it in the last few days. I want to build it up again, but too often my feelings get in the way of doing any work. How the heck do you guys keep it up? I'm going to keep working on my perseverance as well as my skills.

    Anyway, here's a DSG I did last week, Lame Fight, and the process for my Sneasel re-design for COW #319. I had absolutely no clue what I was doing and went through a lot more sketch and value drafts than shown here. In the end I feel the piece turned out a bit too dark, and the coloring and rendering is lazy. The design is lazy too; I went with the first idea I had. I got too nervous and just rushed ahead. I really need to loosen up.
