Finished the self portrait, and refined the speedy car thing a bit more.
I feel the car has lost its kickassness as i started to paint it in, so looks like its back to the basics once again for that one.
Aw man i missed so much! Guess the subscription fucked up again...
So much condensed apege,lookin nice. The Marko inspired piece is tight, hope you finish it dude!
I agree that the car lost its energy, I think its cause you yourself got lost in the edges. Sharpen up that bitch and throw some sleek chromy shine and it'll come back to ya!
The sp is solid, the likeness is definitely there, but youre still stuck in your usual colour schemes. Next time it starts happening again fuck it up with the hue/saturation tool and use whatever colours come out.
I wanna see more vaariety in your sketchbook. Seems like most of the work you do is either floatin heads or you being stuck in your comic world (which is fine, but you gotta expand to keep fresh, think Marko needing to move outta degenesis after so long). The cars are a breath of fresh air imo, looks that way in your markmaking too.
Now THAT is a sketchdump. Alot of stuff to go over but all of it entertaining. I agree with what SirGreenSock had to say. Ie: Shake it up and add some spice! I know light bulbs went off in my head when I read his crit.
Cool life studies!
The last two are the most coherent imo, theyve got a great gesture, sense of movement and weight to them. The simplicity really helps in this regard.
The other (im assuming longer studies) arent as good really, theyre mostly done with short stubby strokes which freeze-frames the figure rather than give it flow. They also occasionally get some pretty spastic marks which im guessing are marking the edges of shadows and such, which dont really contribute to the figure at this stage. The best advice i can give you is something im also trying to work on, and that is making less marks in the longer studies, maybe even as few or fewer than you would in your short poses. Youre at a stage where simply recording the figure in front of you isnt enough anymore, youre good at that, so the logical next step would be thinking in your placement of the figure on the paper and your markmaking. In the longer poses try spending a bit more time looking at the figure, and figuring outthe most mark efficent way of putting it down. A few good, confident and well placed lines look better than many impulsive confident poorly placed lines.
