    The jetpack for the most part is done. I have started detailing her left arm, which hopefully will dictate what the rest of her outfit looks like;

    So much fun and cool stuff added here since my last visit.
    That mecha-dog is freaking epic!!!!!

    Your sketching style is nicely unique, so much to look at, so much detail in such few lines. Impressive

    lol I thought so too, maybe it was a time for a new year, new name change?

    Nice work as usual! I like how your approach to shadows and lighting is becoming more noticeable and nuanced. It's such a difficult aspect of digital art.

    Really cool updates man, you mentioned this is your portfolio for personal illustrations, so maybe youre only showing ilustrative stuff, but I'd like to see you do more construction based drawing. The studies are really good and I think theyre awesome too but maybe some perspective or anatomy studies to also help along with the rest of the stuff you are doing. Great sketchbook, keep it up!

    Ooooh I see you share my pain with the gothic art style xD
    Love the simplified lines that still makes it look absolutely recognizable.

    Oh sorry I didnt explain that correctly, with construction I indeed meant like in my sketchbook with thinking and simplyfing forms, not necesarrily literally like construction of buildings Although that ofcourse is good practice too!

    I got some comments on this saying that I need to work on the face, work on the glass a little bit, change the background, and make the armor look more plastic. I worked on the face and the helmet glass since I got the comment and edited the background. I totally agree on the idea of making the armor look more plastic, though for me I was actually thinking more metallic looking like this piece; https://www.artstation.com/artwork/YaLyG3

    The only reason why I decided not to implement a metallic/plastic look in the first place was because last time I attempted it, I couldn't pull it off very well. I'm going to try again, but if it doesn't end up looking good I'm probably going to keep the current look I have as is, finish the illustration the way I want it, and if time permits maybe attempt the metal/plastic look a third time. Right now I'm more interested in having a finished piece than a metallic look. I can always try to practice the metallic look in my tricycle illustration.

    Aside from this I decided to do a bunch of CA challenges this month;

    @Dennis... I still don't have enough studies

    anyways... my mind is so tired right now that I can't think of what to say with the finished version of the "Antibody Soldier." I'll just post it here for now and write another post about it later;

    The images within the boxes are life studies. Some pages in my sketchbook have five of those boxes, some only have one. The majority of the pages don't. So yes I do studies, but definitely not often enough.

    Here are more sketchbook pages I found lying around;

    anyways... i totally forgot to give my critique of antibody soldier/space girl...;
    Name:  2018-11-06-CHOW475-Antibody-Soldier-Ok-to-Go-WIP00-crit03.jpg
Views: 180
Size:  145.5 KB

    On the left is the concept piece I turned in for CHOW. That one took me fifteen hours. The one on the right is the practically finished piece. I took an additional forty hours to get to this piece.

    Here are the critiques that I took into account when trying to finish the piece.
    -work on metal/plastic sheen. probably my favorite critique.
    -changed background
    -work on helmet reflections
    -work on her face. The problem is that it looks too subtle, as in the work I put in looks barely distinguishable.

    Here are the critiques that I tried to work with/couldn't figure out;
    -Overall lighting. I really tried to nail this but I think this became a lost cause. I know that if I switch the background to one neutral color, the value checks out; the top area and the leg are lit while everything else does look dark, indicating the three light sources on the spacesuit. I put the background back in and then the values get all over the place. I tried to pump the darks but then when I look at the piece in other devices, the darks end up as black, which is a no no. In the end I feel this is the best compromise I can get.
    -Head being too big. I traced the head and the body and found out that without the helmet, the head is actually small. I kept it as is.
    -The arm looks too long, but if I shrink it looks horrible and even more deformed. I don't know what to do with this.
    -The pose being stiff. I just couldn't figure this one out. I don't know what to do with this.

    Anyways, I think the piece is pretty much done. If I get a bunch of similar critiques from my various groups and the crits are easy fixes, then I'll fix it. Aside from that I think it's ok enough to put in my portfolio.

    I think I have a new goal this year; keep my grinds to a healthy thirty hours. Before my rendered illustrations took about twenty to twenty five hours or so. This one and the one before this both took fifty hours each to finish. I'm beginning to think fifty hours might be a bit too much, so my target from now on is between thirty to forty hours per piece that I want to render.... unless of course I want to keep rendering, then I'll do two hundred... lol jk...

    Really nice updates, I think you could still do more studies, maybe I should elaborate a bit on what I think entails "studies", for instance you mention studies you've done in your sketchbook pages but I wouldnt really classify those as studies, you're mainly following/copying the lines, but not really understanding the forms of the thing it is that you're studying. For instance the scorpion looks nice, but if you look up "feng zhu student scorpion drawings" youll get some examples of really amazing studies. Where students had to go in and really understand the forms of what they were drawing and then draw it from different angles, that taught them how to draw those scorpions from them on from pretty much any angle with minimal reference, while if you just copy the silhouette and some other lines from a reference and not think through the forms you'll not gain as much knowledge from it. Hopefully that helps a bit as I still think you could really benefit from some more in depth studies, theyre not as fun as the finished pieces you are doing, but if you're serious about improving it will really massively help.

    @dennis... so how about these that I did for warmup tonight?

Views: 95

    I've been doing these random mech-like sputnik satellites all over my regular sketchbook, and tonight I decided to do some digitally, but incorporate what Dennis mentioned about drawing an object from different angles. The three that are marked pink is one object in different angles and the three marked baby blue is one object also. So Dennis, does this count as construction studies? Would engineering diagrams count as construction studies?

    PS
    These studies are difficult btw... it's why I quit after two objects, lol...
