    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.

    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!

    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:

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    More to come! It's my New Year's resolution (that, and getting a portfolio together).

    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

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    welcome to the ssg, you've got some very impressive and convinging anatomy studies here, both human and animal, your pages of doodles are great fun to look at, lots of energy in them. your digital painting is great looking too, good understanding of color and lighting, thankd for the tips on the tank btw. I just gotta say I love the stargate horus helemt you have from a ways back in september. keep it up.

    The painterly stuff is very lovely. Love the nature studies also.

    The hogarth studies and the marker+ink arm studies are real nice too.

    The dobermann pics rock.

    Thats just the cream for me, the rest is great to look at too - as the other guys have said.

    Don't want to pump your ego up too much, but I really enjoyed looking thru your stuff.

    On the last colored fox, watch the value scale. Try to squise you eyes together an look at the head. The dark fur on the underside need to be much lighter to convey the round form of the head. Other than that the reflective light is nice and the olors harmonize. Remember as i read somplace; color and value are the same. If the value is wrong the color cant fix it.

    Also its good to have you on the team, looks like we are filled up now.

    The best drawing time there is, in and between lectures. Keep an eye on your horizontal lines, they need to be..... horizontal =). The rest is good sketches. And your faces are not as bad as you think. Just study the planes a bit, the shading is what make then look unnatural.

    And a saw a little TROGDOR father up the thread. =)

    mmm, freehand 2point veichel drawings, sexy looking, watch the straightness and the consistancy of linewight on it though (I sound like my teacher, thats all she ever crits ). The people are looking good as well, legs look a bit short on the full figure imo but I'm not entirely sure if they actually are.

    heya's liking the pencil stuff here quite a bit, you wolves are great real characters, would love to see this translated more into your people, might just be me, but they feel very manaquin like.

    would also love to see more of the contrast you have in the demon pic in your other colour pieces, its nice and strong

    keep up the good work ^^

    Njord-E55: Haha, you know it. Trogdor could beat Glaurung or Smaug anyday. Facial planes need more work, I know, I just can't figure out how to go about it

    invinciblewombat: cheers. His legs are short little stubbins, maybe his warrior ancestors interbred too much, heh.

    maxetormer: I remember you :p See you around then eh?

    Monny: You're telling me, heh, I reckon their faces look more like someone's removed half their muscle structure. I'm gonna focus on that more, see what I can come up with.
