    appalling late nite posts ][-08-21-2007-][

    Newest Stuff on Page 8!
    -------------


    Hello everyone, I have been lurking around the forums for about 6 months now and have been totally insprired by all the amazing art,

    and I finally decided to join up and start a sketchbook!

    A little background on me.....

    I would appreciate any comments and crits good bad and ugly.....I am learning everyday

    I currently am attending the Art Institute for game art and design.

    And I hope one day to make a career out of art...


    I still have a long way to go, but i am working hard and i will try to update as often as I can

    Welcome to CA!

    How's AI treating you? I got accepted to the one here, turned 'em down, though.

    Anyway! I noticed you've drawn a lot of poses where the face isn't visible or when it is you leave it blank, but you manage to focus on the boobs (busted!). Once you work on the face and head some, you'll understand it and they'll just come to you so easilly.

    It's good that you're studying old George Bridgman, be sure and really think about what you're doing when you're looking at his anatomy studies, they're really loose and plain because it's the major shapes, some of which are exhaggerated, but still it'll look perfect. He's a really loose-drawing kind of guy (word on the street is he drew with a piece of vine charcoal on a 3 foot long stick while drunk at his classes) so try and take after him and loosen up with the sketches for sure. Feel out the rhythms and forms and always try to see the figures and body parts three-dimensionally in your head and to always think about the lines before you put them down.

    Definitely keep it up with the Bridgman studies, and also be sure to check out Andrew Loomis' work (he was a student of Bridgman) at www.saveloomis.org where you can read his hard to find books for free in .pdf. Check out Figre Drawing For All It's Worth and study that, the experts on this website, and check out the Society of Figurative Arts in my signature too if you have time, great anatomy and figure info there from Michael Mentler.

    All in all, concentrate on anatomy and proportions like you are, and don't worry about rendering anything until you've got it anatomically correct, good composition, and the proportions are right on. Work hard and you'll see a major difference in like 3 months.

    Keep it up and keep the posts coming! Hope this wasn't too overwhelming!

    Ian

    Nice Updates, Ur painting skills show great improvment with each one keep it up buddy. Keep posting up man, its a good way to show where you have come from. I don't like the fire hydrant as the foreground element in the suburban scene, it's scale and height don't seem to quite fit.

    Good stuff, Appalled.

    I just looked through the thread, and I'm seeing some definate progress being made. Bridgeman is a good mentor, study his works and really pay attention to anatomy.

    I'll check in again to see all the progress I'm sure your going to make in the future.

    That last anatomy/lifedrawing sketch dump is great! another leap forwards im sure, the poses and things just look right... yes "right", im not really any the wiser to be pointing out shit if they didnt!

    Your heads arent looking so hot though, they look like ones ive been doing/used to do, i think im going to have to look at how loomis draws heads because as is the reference i use is http://www.anticz.com/heads.htm

    Ive found drawing that heads quiet comforting... or simple.

    Do more to that, fix up the blue bit on the right and put it in perspective, looks wonky at the moment, and then just go about touching shit up and thatll look great, reminds me of a room in doom 3 a little and i wants more!

    Nice sketchbook Appalled. There is definitally a lot of improvement from the beginning to the end here. I really like your head and hand study pages and also the Bridgeman stuff. I can't really crit anything it all looks good to me.

    Looking forward to an update!
