    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    1st April 2011: Check latest post for new pix (1).




    ---------------------------------------------
    This stuff's pretty old

    December 2004: I've been building up an alien race since 2002. This is an old sketch I should fix up, but I never get around to doing it :p I need to redo his torso and legs.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Stuff from February 2005:
    I just got a tablet (yay). WIP shot of my first real try at digital 'painting'. You can see the finished version here. I suck at BGs.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Silly little page o' props! I never got around to finishing this.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Random torso, no refs. Futzing about with the new tablet.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Wolves; simple sketches. Done from photos.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    I've been doing life drawing classes recently and more photo sketches, but with Mr. Scanner out of action I can't show 'em.

    So, um, critique away.

    Don't be apprehensive, there is no need. Your works very well. And your seventeen. It means you have a lot of time to improve your capacity. My only crit is about second picture. The half of background is emty so it seems this work not completed. Do you think to put there something? If you don't you can cut there, but if you ask me, another bird could be there. Keep on working my friend.

    ooopps!!!
    I didn't see the link to finished picture. But if you ask me again, a bird could be there instead of the landscape.

    Pretty nice bach of works, Im likeing this;
    specialy the blue Griffon, as far as critics goes
    the "arm less torso" study has sum problems In the
    way you attached the deltoids to the
    clavicle & shoulder blades bones, you see the deltoids
    goes over the pectorals; you drawed 4 seccions in the abdominals
    but they are only 6 muscles there, take a look to Kevin Chen´s studies
    they are great for you to start develping a solid construccion
    metod for your figures:

    mert_yavasca: Thanks The landscape was done last, so I rushed it (I'm not very good at them...). I'll work on them more.

    rodrigo!: Hey, thanks. Vis Comm is really good so far, especially the drawing course I am doing. I replied in your sketchbook thread with some more info.

    maxetormer: That's a sweet critique I'll go and check his stuff out now, thankyou!

    More schtuff.

    My scanner's fixed, so here's what I've done recently. Just the one for now, trying out this 'realism' thing. I used photos as reference, of course A wolf, two tigers, and an unfinished coyote. Maybe I should have tinkered with the levels in Photoshop a bit more :p

    Two from a few days ago! And an old one. For some reason I can't get them to scan well.

    Sketches: I let my hand go on a piece of paper. When stuff started looking like I should put some perspective in it I was like "Argh, crap." I tried :p Anyway - a crow, my head, some random dragonthing, a ship, another person, and a building scene. I want to do some other pics with that building in it, maybe better ones, hehe.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1


    Terrible anatomy sketches. The bottom pose is referenced from Burne Hogarth's "Dynamic Figure Drawing." I have a loooooong way to go
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1


    Old, unfinished; I think I scrapped this in March sometime. Haliaeetus Leucogaster, the white-bellied sea eagle (a giant kite!). Photo referenced, too. Poopy.

    Wyvern!

    Hey, thanks legacy. I'll try to get some more done.

    This is part of one of my assignments. I think it's my second or third try at using actual ink (sepia and jet black); also am using white, process yellow and magenta (to make red) gouache, and some white acrylic I found. I'm still working on it (I think I have used waaaay too much white paint. cruddy!). Tips/critiques?

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    There's a close-up here too. Unfinished, of course :p

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    I have another image done (the more optimistic of the two) in this same method. I might stick it up, if anyone wants to see it.

    Whoa, been a while since I assaulted someone's eyes with my scrawlings. Hold on to your retinae...

    Newest - playing with shading, working more so on body structure than getting it to look like the reference photograph. And look, that F-14 narrowly missed him. Lucky. Photoreferenced the dude from a photographer on devART called dogeatdog5 (I think).
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Stuff from my head, objects that were in front of me, and some scribbles from a few magazines. An F-4 Phantom also flies into the side of David Wenham's face, ouch.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    More objects that were on my desk; model harrier jump jet, model F-16, desklamp. A bunch of wolves invaded, too, as well as The Bride's samurai sword (magazine ref).
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Old stuff for a mod called Dracten (which I left). The leader of the project wanted some weird anatomy for this dragon species, so I had to go with it. It's not very feasible, the back wouldn't be able to support the wings very well, among other things.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Thumbnails scribbles for an attempted Daily Sketch Group image, "Mountaintop Docking Bay".
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Futzing in Painter a few weeks ago, found it just now. Silly robot.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    A messy tablet sketch, young guy raising his arms. Photoreferenced.

    Sketchy stuff from today! Bleh.

    Muscles of the arm and shoulder; reference was used.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1


    Some lioness sketchy-studies. They don't look very happy (possibly because they're all disembodied heads floating around the page?). One of my tubes of white gouache stops by to say hi as well :p
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1


    Quick sketches from a magazine. I am not happy with myself at the moment, I am crappier at drawing humans than ever. Augh.

    Your anatomy sketches show a lot of comfort with the subject, great line quality and a strong grasp of 3d space. You shouldn't be so hard on yourself towards that aspect of your art. Not to mention your rendering is top-notch, especially for someone your age. Those lions just blow me away .

    Inspirational, man. Keep it up!

    PolyKarbon Art Drill: Mythological Gods - Sekhmet. Yes, I like Stargate too :p Unfinished.

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    I have come to the conclusion that I really suck. Oh the emo.

    (don't worry, I'll be fine in a day or two)

    I really like your dragons up there, mate. As a fellow Stargate fan, I find myself quite partial to Sekhmet as well. =P

    Ooookay, my scanner owned me again - reaaaally bad quality (it just uninstalled itself and now doesn't do anything on the main computer). BUT I've picked up my game a little and have been drawing a bit each day. Hopefully I can make this a regular occurrence :p Anyways, here's 19 pages of sketches I've done since August. I'll post some of the digital scribbles after I collate them all. Thank you to all who've commented and given me tips so far

    I bought an A4 sketchbook at the beginning of August, which I find is nice to carry around and doodle in for practice. Here's the back cover (front is just plain black):
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Page 1, beginning of August, sitting in the uni bar:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Quick perspective sketch between classes at uni:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Random studies of eyes and bird anatomy:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Poses from Dynamic Figure Drawing (Burne Hogarth), and a bar heater that was nearby:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Two more from Hogarth, plus two torso muscle studies:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Sitting on the lawn outside the bar at uni again, random studies:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    I think this was back at the bar:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    ...lectures can be boring, so I scribble
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Muscle studies of the arm, both sides:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    One from Hogarth again, plus my left hand, bottle o' ink, and Copic marker refill container:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Dobermans! Dobermen? Whatever! Some from photos, some from my mind:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Male heads:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Dragons and dudes:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Anatomy brainspew. No references (clearly).
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    3 poses from Hogarth again, arm curves:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    One leg from Hogarth, the rest from my head:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    More dudes posing, no refs:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Grid from Loomis, plus my left hand again, and the inevitable zombie dude.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Two more leg studies (S-curves) from Hogarth:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Doberman pinscher scribbles again.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Colour studies from photos, male arm and face.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Two female figures, no refs:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Setting sketch which I might build on later.
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Spontaneous speedpainting, 2 hours. Zoom!
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Mussing about in OC, no refs. His eyes are wacked :p
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    For the Daily Sketch Group, "Ships are dwarfed by vast docking 'cathedral'." Two versions, the top one is darker than the other. 3 hours in Painter 7 (probably my first real effort in that program).

    excellent studieees! im sure its helping a lot and no doubt youll be improving at a much faster rate.
    one thing ive noticed creeping into some of the faces is that the skulls are too small, as in the round part of the head (dunno my terminology), not the actual face, but the round part! hehe
    i think because you are drawing the normal proportions for the face, 1/3 each section and thats including the brow to the hair line...but then you make the hairline like the top of the skull, when it extends past that....but like this is only in some of them and you may have corrected that by now...so i dunno.

    i also think you should do some studies of the eye as well it seems you are having trouble in some pics like just reading your notes there hehe
    i like the perspective sketches.
    nice work!

    Haha, to tell you the truth Rodrigo, you're helping me a lot more than some of my teachers in class Cheers!

    I'll dig out the sketchable carp later, here's a colour splat for now (lines are by DieOxin). 2 hours yesterday. I'm kind of directionless when I try to colour something...

    wow, really great start here...the only crit i have is you need to gesture out your anatomy studies more right now...they don't have the rhythm that is essential to a good figure yet. these muscle studies are healthy for you but you're missing one of the foundations

    keep up the digital works!

    Apollo: Thanks So you mean, like, do looser and less 'blocky' sorts of sketches of the figures as well?

    Frak me, I haven't touched this since October. Yikes. I have been drawing a fair bit though, here's the more recent stuff. Some from magazines, some from my head:

    nice work so far especially with the hands.
    rendering on the sypriss is good!
    in the last one the face, some features look a bit flat, like the lips and eyes, try working in some darker shadows and shading with the form more, some closeup studies of these features might help too.
    cheers
