Strong anatomy studies. Good confidence in your strokes, it shows that you are grasping the concepts well.
The card design sounds like fun. You seem to have some neet ideas. I look forward to seeing how it turns out. Ironically I'm working on a similar project. I'm decorating my highschool graduation invitations and it's been interesting working on a graphic design project for a change of pace. I've never done one before so it has been a learning experience. Speaking of which, I should go post what I've come up with so far, in my sb.
Q-Caddlewick - it was fun to get into the vector part of it too, got to play around in illustrator a lot. I think I have the finished version nearby actually. will post it when i find it. invincible - i'd say about 60% photos, 40% paint. bout 5 photos smushed in there. the card had to be done in a vector program, illustrator, so no paintyfun for that one. but I learnt a lot, so it wasn't as bad
Beautiful animal linework. Yer people are definitely getting better too.
One thing about that bottle tho'...you can see the label at the back which is saying the bottle is transparent, right? Then you popped it on a background, which you can't see through the bottle. Breaks the illusion of bottleness.
Girl, you got some mean scribblins goin' down 8) Your animal studies rock. Your creatures are awesome -- that griffin! Your anatomy studies are fantastic, and you're improving by leaps and bounds. You're cool with the fontz, the planes... the bottles, even
Sorry to douse anyone's positivity, but it's all downhill from here. I just can't seem to concentrate or commit myself to anything, it was like that all last month, and it's just shithouse of me. 2 steps forward, 1 step back and all that (for now).
hello! You've improved a great deal since you started this thread. You've got some lovely anatomical studies... keep doing hands and feet! Also, some of your critters are fantastic Lighting on the most recent griffin painting is really nice, though I don't think it's quite done... how much time have you spent on it?
Likening the dragons... the shading looks slightly spotty,
take your time while doing it -thats a piece of advise I should
follow more often- and the anatomy is improving at a
very good rate, keep working by all means
Stuff is looking great as always; and the variety is subject matter is great also. The typewrighter piece is looking good too, however you might want to watch the cast shadow on the pictures. They don't seem to be affected by the typewrighter's shadow, making them sort of pop out wierd.
Sorry I haven't been around lately, I'll try to post more.
You have accomplished what every artist dreams of accomplishing. "Perfect Sketchs" I Think it is safe to say that you inspire any one that even glimpses at this sketchbook. Theres nothing i can say about this sketch book that is negative. well done!
Excellent lines and hatching. Good flow on the creature. On the faces watch the eyes, everyone, especially me, tend to draw eyes a little too large. I hear it is because we place so much importance on the eyes. It is especially easy to draw them large in profiles for some reason.
Hogarth studies look as though they are photocopies of the book almost. Good work. Hogarth is hard to copy because of his unique stylization.
Your anatomy studies are top notch as always. Its cool how you did a few loomis studies, and then moved to photo studies. Thats what those books are for, helpin us understand the concepts so that we can see them in real life.
Thanks guys. Yeah, there's always something wrong with the eyes in every face I draw. I don't mean to draw them big but they always end up that way. Icky. I guess time and progress will change my bad habits (hopefully).
Pages from the sketchbook, last couple days or so.
WIP for another poster assignment, got a thread going in the Sketches+WIPs forum here.
very cool faces. I like the ink style. What type of pens are you using for those?
Hogarths are well done, very confident lines. The one on top looks a little flat arount the trunk. Remember to show the form of the rib barrel.
The poster is looking cool. I look forward to seeing where you go with it.
