Here's more from my sketchbook! I've been drawing way more than doing digital painting. Yesterday, I formated my computer so hopefully I can start painting again! (You'll notice that there is the same page as in that previous post except it has more sketches in it!)
til' next time!

So I finally formatted my laptop and I'm currently doing a tutorial just to see how well it can run photoshop cs3. And I'm also working on a layout/background which is taking me forever to get done with beacause of everything that has been going on in my life. In the mean time, here's my sketchbook... again...

So I did some value studies and color studies in thumbnail form. It's a fun little exercises really! I should do more of these! I've put the original image next to my studies for reference.
I also tried to do a full master study but then I got mad and gave up :/ I have to try again soon.
Anyway, here it is!
Some comment's and critiques are welcome!

EXCELLENT work! So fluid in the poses, lots of confident lines, very expressive. Good use of color!
I've got nothing to say other than praise, only I applaud you for the value studies and color studies and look forward to seeing more of that. (As I need to do more of that!).

Thanks Celadon! I appreciate it!
So for the past couple of months, I've been going to a life drawing atelier held by a french comic artist in Montreal. So, here are some drawings I did (in no particular order)!
There are a lot of them that I don't like due to anatomical problems so some comments and critiques are welcome!

I forgot to mention! I finally FINALLY have a new computer!!! I am ssooo happy of it! I've bought it piece by piece to make sure that it works for my needs. It's my first buildand my uncle assembled it for me. My friends helped me choose the parts. Here's the part list if you're curious: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/Jlocas/saved/gBHnTW
The colors look great with this Asus monitor! and I calibrated it with the help of this ICC profile: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm#a
I named this new baby ''Betty'' because she's my girl! Here are a few pictures! I've been able to move my drawing table right next to it. Talkin' about convenience!
And finally, here is the first painting sketches I've done with this baby! I used two sketches I've already made. The second one isn't finished because I didn't like how it was turning out so some comments and critiques are welcome!

So lately I've doing some photo studies and I did a master study of Sargent. The second photo study I did, I really don't like the end result but I guess it's because I was getting impatient while doing it. I gotta work on that. Something that I tried while making them is to use only one or two brushes.
As always, comments and critiques are welcome!

Man, you sketchbook is really awesome, and we kinda have the same taste. I sketch a lot of characters in my sketchbook, love environments, and we both do lots of master studies

I've been doing way more anatomy studies for a while now. I started doing photos and master studies for the last two weeks though. I didn't really know how to make those until I found videos explaining it. But I do feel that I'm missing a certain basis in my studies, that's why I'm going to register to Noah Bradley's Artcamp this year!
Also, I do feel that I'm lacking some self-discipline... I feel like I'm not working as hard as I was in school and I know that I still have a lot to learn if I want to become a better artist. It would be nice to have a partner in crime, you know, to keep each other motivated, to help each other, to keep each-other in check when ever we become lazy and etc... It would be much easier to have someone we've met face to face to keep track of each other online. Can we do that? I would be really cool to do so. I know your still in school but I see that you can manage to make your own stuff.

Dude we gotta to this, I saw a podcast by Bobby Chiu recently and he said that artist shouldn't be alone and that it's one of the best way to improve to be surrounded by other artist. It is waaaaay more motivating this way, I'm in! I think self-discipline is also super important and that's what makes you grow faster. So I'll come by your sketchbook more often then to see the progress. I'm super thrilled for this, it's the best thing to see an artist grow !
And yeah you are right I'll start the production of my short. Last semester I was super busy with the modelpack and all, but I did a lot of digital painting for it thou and I learned a lot. When the holiday vacation started, I just had a digital art rage, and I painted something each day of my vacation ; studies, movie still, personal pieces, my BG for my short etc. Now I'm excited to start school again, but sad at the same time cause I won't be able to paint like I do now, it's going to be mainly animation and related stuffs. But I'll still try to post personal paintings.
And you are doing Artcamp?! This is so awesome! I can't wait to see your work and there's just no way you won't improve. Artcamp is where I found me passion for digital painting. The approach of Noah for painting is so much fun and relaxing, cause you know at school, the way they show us Photoshop is so technique and organized, which I don't really like. I prefer the Noah style, it makes painting so much more fun and enjoyable. But artcamp require A LOT of self-discipline, and that's why I'll try to push you as much as I can, and even do some exercise with you I think, just tell me when you start
Also, I understand that people procrastinate and can't find a good self-discipline, but I feel like (well for me), the more you paint or draw, the more you like it. And the people who did it, who succeed in the industry, are people who found what their passion truly is. Maybe for you it's Background and robot, but it can be something more subtle than this, something that drives you. For me I found that not only I love BG, but I think what I really enjoy in them is to play with color and light and just have fun with it, and to not plan everything, plan all the layers, do a layer for everything... I hate that. I'm having a blast when I only use a max of 3 layer ( I'll use more but they eventually get merge) use a sketchy/painterly brush, and just go. Like the painting of Andreas Rocha, and Darek Zabroski (you have to know that guy, he's god). Anyway all that to say that when you find what really drives you(maybe you already have it too), self-discipline becomes way more easy.
So I'm starting school tomorrow, I'll try to keep posting
Oh and I'm also on Drawcrowd, DA, Tumblr, CubeBrush, Artstation and Pinterest

Oh yeah, your last semester is going to be super crazy! Be prepared! But it's going to be worth it. Something that I wish I did on that semester is taking the time to do art that had nothing to do with school, you know, do something for fun. I've spent all of my time doing nothing but my short film and I do feel like I've missed out a lot. That's my only regret... But at the same time, I really loved working on it. Making my very own movie was very exhilarating.
I totally agree with what you're saying. I I like most is pretty much every aspect of drawing, I just want to create worlds. And with digital painting, I see a whole new world of possibilities! I'm always mind blown by what people are capable with it. At school, I really didn't like the photoshop techniques they showed us, it's really too basic. They should delve more into how to use it properly like in the industry but I think they didn't because they aren't part of the digital generation of art (if you know what I mean). That why before I took a sabbatical after the student strike, to learn photoshop like the artists that I admire. I really like digital artists who has a painterly style to their art too. I really admire what Assaf Horowitz, Enrique Fernandez, Devon Cady-Lee... and many more!
I've been seeing your stuff on DA and I can see that you're really motivated, that's awesome! We have to work together! We will gain ultimate POWER! Mouhahahahahaha!!! The only question I have is how are we going to get about to it? Should we plan something?
I guess now that you're here, I'll have to watch myself more! Haha! Watch out! I'll also be keeping an eye out for you We should add each other on facebook to communicate better and faster.
I also post my stuff on tumblr, DA, Crimson Daggers and CFSL.net.
