    yeah, maybe a tighter yet still light color for the back design instead of a blur would look cool.

    WOW those gestures are looking GOOD! and it seems from some of the faces (if these were done from life like they look) that some ppl were sleeping during training ^^

    what kind of sketchbook do you have? is it toned already? cuz that's freaking awesome...

    whew lotsa stuff haha very nice man, glad to see you're drawing even when you're busy with work stuff. great stuff man the diversity is nice, looks like you're making sure to draw from life and imagination.

    I liked this one especially:


    the way you rendered the form and everything is great; the lines you used eccentuate the muscles really nicely. I'm with hp as well, love the toned sketchbook drawings (always love the way things like that look) so keep at em! hehe keep it up man, hope the training is going well!

    Thanks Hp, onir and lord blue!

    Onir, I also liked that one the most..., and Hp, you're right.. it was pretty boring....

    It's an earthtone or something like that sb... you can pick them up in Barnes and Noble... I also enjoy being able to draw on pre-toned paper...
    Onir, I also just picke dup a brush pen!! I've been playing with it.. and I'll be posting some of those soon....

    Sketches on toned paper look interesting. The one mentioned by Onir is super cool Try to avoid drawing too small beacause it's hard to be apply good proportions. Also don't put dark lines too early. First lightly all the construction and contours. Then dark shadows and middle tones at the end.

    Cheers.

    hey glikster,

    the scary thing is that some of your notations on those ruled paper is triggering a nervous response in me... heh

    btw, no issues if you're doodling during training? Cause some of that crap can get expensive. Supposed to hold training in manilla in a month or so, company is charging 2K per day (i still get crap pay and only free lunch... heh).

    BTW, why is everything tilted to the right? kekeke

    Long time ago, I did a few pics on similiarly toned paper... and got told to use the white sparingly, mainly for highlights.

    I like the sketch that onir mentioned too. Good stuff!

    You seem to have a lot of small drawings. Go bigger more often, it's more fun.

    Toned paper looks like so much fun...

    (By the way, MY computer did crash... Hehe.)

    Mileage <> art of course is a visual language and much like a sentence which has a beginning and an end, so do lines, and values. I found it useful to think of drawing/painting in terms of a journey <> you have a point of departure and a destination <> you draw a line which takes you from one to the other.

    It is extremely important to get as much mileage in as you can <> of course how you make the journey will determine your success as an artist <>

    Each time you take a trip try to notice more than you did the time before and make it a point to never go the same way twice if you can help it.

    Thank you, Dile and sep...
    Farvus, I'm trying to keep my pencil light until I find the lines I want.. it's not so easy...
    mach, yeah.. well, I finished the labs early and the lecture was hella boring... by the way, you're right about the challenge image.. I totally dropped the ball on that.. I'm still working on the story-telling aspect of illustration...
    and to you and Onir, no graphic design work for me.. I wanted to get into that.. but it never happened. Thanks, though!

    Sorry about that dmitri ... I do sometimes do larger pics.. but I feel much more pressure to make it look good, cuz the large paper costs more. mayeb I'll pick up a big newsprint pad...

    Thank you Dr. Bones! More nuggets of wisdom!

    Here's a quick preview of my recent brushpen/bridgeman studies

    WAHHHH!!!! i hate you! i'm doing bridgman studies too and mine don't look even close to the drawings ^^ i'm starting to do loomis studies, while bridgman breaks a lot of things down the "block way" which is nice, it's often hard to tell what angle something is from, or the drawing was poorly printed and very faint.

    i still can't believe that's brushpen...do more!

    hey glikster,

    bust out that brushpen and cook up some more data flow diagrams! *gets killed with a brick*

    I should start carrying a little sketchbook around like yours (either that or your hands are HUGE!!!) cause the larger ones are a little tedious to lug around unobtrusively at times. However, I was doodling in one recently when I realise the huge thing blocking my view of the paper was my HAND!!! (too much wacom work).

    And I agree with the rest, your brushpen looks too neat to be brush. Good stuff. Still doing studies off real life? Cause it'll suck to draw GIANT ROBOTS THE BRIDGMAN WAY.

    *suffering from too much coffee*

    damnit, i'm getting one too.

    those studies look great...which bridgman book are you using?

    also, since you draw so much stuff on each page maybe consider tying them together compositionally, look at wes9000's stuff for more help on that, he's crazy good at tying random things together.

    still can't believe that's brushpen lol, makes my work look sloppy (not saying it isn't of course ) I agree with hp as well, tying things together compositionally will just help, also make things a bit more interesting.. should probably do that myself..

    Nice Bridgeman studies. I think you sometimes draw too small. Even the moleskine doodles are tiny.
    Keep updating .

    hey glikster, nice updates! lotsa doodles ya got here.. really like the one with the dog, the arm, and the head combined haha, nice way to go about em; also the eye on that same page looks really good. only thing I would say as a crit would be to watch your shading in spots, looks a little erratic.

    yo glikster!

    being busy for a bit... career fair over the weekend... forced to work, giving quick interviews for fresh grads.

    was writing some comments regarding your sketches.. paused... went to an old sketchbook, doodled a bit to get some ideas (found out I can't use a pencil anymore). anyway... comments... version 2...

    from the photo you posted, your sketchbook is a little small, right (or your hands are BLOODY HUGE) ? Speaking for myself, it's freaking had to work that small. Ended up making little chicken scratches instead of real strokes. So, have you tried to focussing on a single subject on the page? Pick the subject... then spend some time on it. Remember the basics you already know, light/shadow/reflected/specular, even basic perspective. Cause you demonstrated you're pretty damn accurate when working off your kid's photos. Just need to refocus that onto real life.

    oh yeah, the pen stuff is cool. Great for training yourself to be decisive. Tried switching every now and then to good ol graphite? The option of "undo" does have its benefit.

    *back to pretending to work*
