    CChhim's sketchbook

    One thing that I don't really understand well is knowing what and how to study effectively, I guess I'll learn and I go. Critiques are much appreciated .

    there is some really amazing work in these forums and I hope to one day reach their level, until then, thanks for checking out my sketch book, I'll try to upload often...

    a photo study, 1 hour.. i need to get into the habit of doing more of these since my portraits from my imagination look too similar to each other..

    some more work for the sketchbook:



    dont know where i was going with the design and its kinda stiff and boring but here it is anyway:

    another photo study, used the round brush for the characters and a soft edge brush for the background: Name:  witch2finnishedSmall.jpg
Views: 448
Size:  80.1 KB




    for a little experiment i then adjusted the tone and added a noise filter, i think the effect is kinda neat:

    studying off Micheal Hampton's Figure drawing: Design and Invention ebook. the ones in the blue square are copied from the book, the other ones i tried from imagination. just the head, torso and pelvis for now:

    The woman study with the noise effect is pretty cool.

    The best way to improve would be to study something (a design, a landscape etc) and then to apply it in a painting. You learn faster if you apply your study in a painting.

    Keep the good work. The lady dress is great, it's seems that you used a few paint strokes but very effectively.

    Nice works, I'm really digging the portrait studies. As for your imagination stuff, try to always use a story as your starting point and use that to guide your design decisions. The story can be as simple or as complex as you want. Just have fun with it!
