    Critiques Please - YangDaniel's Sketchbook

    Hey everyone I've been somewhat browsing this site for a few years and finally decided to join and post up some recent work (mostly because I realize there are a lot of extremely good artists on this site that I could benefit from ).

    I'm an art student studying into animation, but I've always had an urge towards digital painting, and so for the past couple of months I've been grinding away at it trying to grasp a better understanding of light and color.

    I think I'm finally beginning to get a handle on it, but I'm not exactly sure how to push my pieces further, which is why I'm here

    That said, your critiques are all welcome, and I'm very much seeking it. I'll be posting my work in order from when I first started to one done just yesterday.

    Thank you all for taking the time to look through

    edit: woops, didn't realize the images would all come out so big, will reupload them smaller? :/

    Trying to get at least one painting a day. Actually did 2 today but since I'm not happy nor satisfied with one of them, I'll only be posting the one I semi-liked lol.

    I don't know why but I'm really struggling with painting forest/trees, and so will be doing a lot more studies on painting them.

    Not sure why, but have been experiencing some technical problems trying to get on this site. Anyway's I've been semi busy this past week and so haven't been able to work on much.

    EDiT: It seems I'm having trouble even uploading my photos, so I'll post thumbnails from a seperate image hosting site.





    The first piece is actually my first "digitally painted" character work. Normally I'm only work in character line art and cell shading. Not completely happy with it, nor is it finished but it's a process I guess.

    Portrait study :/

    Although I'm satisfied enough with the colors at this point, its lack of resemblance to the original picture bothers me quite a bit.

    A study on facial expressions, I wanted to find a balance between realism and a more cartoony style and obviously I could still use a lot of work, but I'm quite happy with how a few of them came out

    This took me way longer than it should have >_<..couldn't figure out how to draw a leather jacket blowing in the wind and couldn't find references either, so after a few hours of struggling I gave up on that idea lol. Burnt out on it now and so will finish it tomorrow.

    Very pretty lines in the last couple of drawings, lots of character. Keep grinding, it'd be cool to see how those lines develop w/ a few months of practice. (And thanks for visiting my SB btw. I don't think I'm good enough yet to be anyone's inspiration, but hey!)

    Just totally rediscovered Hampton even though one of my old drawing classes was centered around one of his books. Anyways, his approach totally makes more sense to me and I'm really digging his style as well.

    I've finally found pen settings on the tablet that I'm comfortable with. For some reason I've always struggled with getting that "ink pen" look digitally, even though I'm familiar using traditional pens. Anyways, school has resumed for me and so I won't be able to focus on personal studies as much anymore :/..in the mean time I'll simply update this with school work.

    Just some character concepts for a drawing studio class. The assignment will be to eventually use the characters for a comic script from Marvel. There are a couple of issues I notice already that hopefully I can fix at some point, but still have some more work to grind out.

    Been super busy with school, but managed to put in some time for another perspective study. If I had the time, I would totally love to attempt some architecture/landscapes in perspective.

    Hey!
    I wish this community was a bit more active with the comments and critiques...
    -------------------
    Anyways I like the design of the character from post #19 with the scarf and the perspective looks good on post 21.
    From my observation, there seems to be some skewing of forms in post 22, because things are going to different vanishing pts especially on the front plane of the machine.

    For perspective practice it may be helpful to explore some 3d programs. You can quickly get an accurate sense of scale and plan your composition with simple box masses. Of course continue your 2d perspective studies but it's just an additional thing you may want to explore (maybe even download some 3d models and do some perspective studies that way).
