    silentbrain's doodlewidget (update 2/2/09ZOMG)

    Hey folks...been about half a year since I visited regularly, mainly in the dsg. Going to the SF Workshop really showed me how much I have left to go before I can be employable, so I'm starting this sketchbook in the hopes that it pressures me to draw more.

    Crits welcome, and actually I'm in need of them, but I will try to keep updating this sucker regardless.

    hey -sideshowbob-, thanks for your comments! I agree 100% about needing to learn perspective and symmetry. I guess I just gotta keep drawing and watch out for those...

    Polystyrene vehicle models, waiting in the drive thru, and etc:

    Heya, in that image with the girl and the turret gun, seems like you coulda pushed composition. You've got a single focal area right in the middle of the image, without anything else to move the eye around. its all a pretty similar value too, which isolates the gun blast even more.

    your sketches are simple and informative, i wish i sketched a little more like that.

    The last image, try to sharpen up or straighten up some of those edges, because the robots look a little "mushy".

    Having said that, keep it up, i'm looking forward to seeing where you go with your work.

    McLean- Thanks a lot, I needed to hear those crits. I've been spoiled by speedpainting and how liberating it is, but I really gotta get it together already.

    Btw, on your suggestion for cleaning up my edges, did you mean inside or outline edges? I became totally confused after reading this post on edge control. Edges...on the inside? If you (or anybody else who is reading this) can explain, I would be very grateful!

    Okay, more sketches...

    I drew these figures not really taking my pencil off the paper...was more fun...necks are consistently freakishly long...

    Spent more time on this one, even though it was somewhat of a stretch. Gotta get used to it...

    Took a little time off to check out the game Beyond Good and Evil...neat aesthetic that game has.

    Okay, on to the stuff:

    Topic was "Pain"

    silentbrain's doodlewidget (update 2/2/09ZOMG)
    An pic from last year I finally got around to working on...
    I want to get back to this one, so crits would be much appreciated. So far I know that the design of the top half of the airship ain't too hot, and composition's probably wonky. Got pointed to the tuts on Feng Zhu's site, hopefully that will help with technique...

    Also, if anyone can tell me what "edge control" is referring to (in the post above this one) it would be much appreciated. Funny, for it being my first language, I'm pretty rotten at english...

    Dude, I'm loving the airship digi-painting! One crit I have is that the direction of the laser blasts should be more consistent, as they are all coming from the same direction... Maybe sharpen them up a bit too, I think it would be more belilevable that way. It's also a little flat (okay for a work in progress), but don't build the background up too much, for fear that it'll look overworked.

    I'm being picky here, your recent digital work is lighyears ahead of the earlier posts. Keep it up!

    Bennett- Thanks, I am trying to spend more time on the cg than I used to, I'm glad it shows! I am still working on the fixes you suggested, they are helping a lot.

    -sideshowbob- Haha, thanks for always posting positive stuff here

    liam.c- Thanks for the heads up, that clears up a lot of confusion! It seems kind of obvious in retrospect, I dunno, maybe I am dumb x_x lol

    Topic was "Secretly happy with other's misfortune"
    Perspective grid trick in photoshop along with a polystyrene car model and a ton of hours helped with this one...didn't even consider composition though x_x so probably haphazard..

    ^_^ I know EXACTLY what you mean about the workshop.... but anyways.. I still got like 5 years to go before I actually need professional work (I hope!)

    Great stuff willy.... sorry I wasn't able to check it out earlier.

    Specifically the one about happiness at another's misfortune. *thumbs up*

    Finals almost over...it'll be good to get a regular sleeping schedule again!

    This was my final for layout class...Feng had a Q&A session at cgtalk,
    I suggest you check it out! It was an eye-opener for me!
    Feng Zhu Q&A
    Anyway, he talked about how he works out concepts entirely in digital
    to save time...boy, my inexperience really shows, this thing took FOREVER.

    Last, some real media stuff in watercolor and acrylics-

    It's kinda sad, I'm way more comfortable in photoshop than I am
    with real media...hopefully over the break I'll be able to beef up
    those friggin real media skillz. (damn j00, Coro/Targete/etc/etc!)

    Panda- Wow, uh thanks. Actually, I'm turning 25 this year, and I've been in school since 1999...so yeah. I actually got really burned out for a few years, as long as you can avoid burning out, I'm sure you will be totally awesome by the time you get out of college! (and I bet you won't spend as much time to graduate either... )

    Anyway, one extra pic from the semester...this one's a bit of a goofup, the guy on the right is supposed to be the super-evil antagonist who's killed thousands of people, but it looks more like the guys on the left are thinking "eww...wtf, did someone cut the cheese?!" and the guy on the right is like "aww c'mon you guys..."

    panda- You got it!
    silentbrain's doodlewidget (update 2/2/09ZOMG)
    hehe

    vigostar- Wow, thanks! Doesn't really feel like leaps and bounds though...I guess more like redeveloping atrophied limbs or something...lol

    Not much this week, gotta get back to pencil-and-paper stuff. These next two are based off concepts by a friend. Tried to take them to more rendered state with varying degrees of success...

    (finally figured out how to navigate goodbrush.com since it got its revamp, found hundreds of pics I've never seen before...droool. Trying to get better at drawing cities shorthand...the trees are gross, lol)

    I finally got back to some pictures and tried to finish em (one of them was a pic from back in January-Thanks Bennett for the crits, I tried to follow them)
