    Sciboy's Mild Insanity [OUTDATED]

    *** New Thread Here ***

    G'day,

    "As all good artists know, you must know the rules before you break them", and so i am learning realism at the moment.

    To start things off, flower sketch!



    Still incomplete, A3 Paper, 6B Pencil, A4 Scanner.

    It's a good start, but try using less contours (correct spelling?) to make it look more realistic. Rely more on the shades and values, and the highlighting, then you will find you don't need contours as much. You have already started this I see, but you can go further with it. Try to be more consequent where you put the shadow.

    Whoops, completely forgot this thing existed, okey now i'm going to add to it daily, don't expect anything interesting though. =P
    Once i get everything around here sorted i'll start taking challenges, hopefully an animation duel too.

    Just got my tablet working.



    Plus a few days ago i bought this nice basic book called "Anatomy for Fantasy Artists"
    So you can be expecting ALOT more skeletal and muscular studies as i try to fix up my weakness with humanoid characters. =)



    [EDIT]
    Well crap, that went down the drain, just got a new job and i don't have as much time as i usually do.
    So until i can get use to my new schedule don't expect anything, i should be back on-track in a week or two.
    [EDIT #2]
    Anatomy for Fantasy Artists was much to brief and basic, so i just bought myself "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" by Stephen Rogers Peck, it's a great book and fairly extensive. =D

    I personally use http://www.namecheap.com


    Sciboy, Thank you for the tip on domain names on that thread started by Bluedoorhouse. I went ahead and registered with them. Many thanks for your feedback on this topic. I looked up the bdh site but the server was not up tonight. Bad timing I guess.

    Went with Peoplehost's $3.95 service for hosting and got a freaky automated phone call confirming my "people status" I guess. For such a minimal fee, I'm not worried about trying it out for a month. Thanks man!

    Where are your drawings? Ok, well I certainly suck at programming so I'm not pointing any fingers. But css seems to really make life easier, that's fer sure.

    Thanks again.

    Really? I thought it was nicer not immediately raping peoples bandwidth with crap. =P
    I'll be putting my more reasonable pieces as direct images, but for my scraps i'll stick with thumbnails.

    sleeperservice: Glad you found my feedback useful, however for hosting there are much better services around if you do the research, although NameCheaps domain name service is not something to be overlooked.

    Hey sciboy,

    Don't worry about if your stuff is good enough for people's bandwidth. We're here to learn The only pictures I see are your wacom drawing and the half skeleton. You're off to a good start with the skeleton. Anatomy will help you a ton in the long run. Just remember to take your time while drawing and measure angles, proportions and lengths. You'll improve tenfold.

    Keep it up.

    -Mike

    Yeah, sorry guys but my site hosting the images died and i didn't have any backups of it.
    I'll hopefully be attending life drawing tomorrow, so i should have something to post for you.

    I prefer ImageShack.
    I'm royally ticked off, i had my first life drawing session today and my scanner and camera isn't working as usual.
    [EDIT]
    Got it working, but managed to delete ALL and i mean ALL my files soon after, leaving me with a metric fuckton of work to catch up with, although alot of it is art related so there will be things to post, but not so much in the way of studies.

    Quick update, doing the 100 heads challenge so here's my first attempt, a bit rushed, inaccurate and confused thanks to my ear hurting like hell making it impossible to concentrate, but never-the-less fun!
    More to come soon.

    Okay, time to get the ball rolling for real, scanner is fixed and work is done.
    Been playing around alot in sketcher and got an animation project for TAFE.

    First up, Rushed storyboard for my TAFE project. Had to keep it simple for my team members.



    And an edited quicky from sketcher to make the white less blinding.
    [edit]
    I was rendering this thing properly but everything but my background disappeared, couldn't save the refined version. Nor did i have the desire to do it again, so i leave you with what i saved last.... This shit has got to stop.
    [edit #2]
    Okay, i surrender. I decided to just mess around with the alien.

    "A little less conversation and a little more action please"
    I'll be taking a break from most of the forum in order to dedicate more time towards my art.
    I've got the necessary threads on watch and you can always leave a comment here if you need to contact me.

    Otherwise, you can look forward to daily updates in my sketchbook while this continues since i'll be drawing like a madman.

    P.S. Clowns are Evil.

    Studying a bit of loomis and decided to pick up the daily self-portrait, as you can see i could really benefit from the practice. I still lack any visual memory which makes this a bit more difficult but that's something i got to work on aswell. Oh and also i found yet another faulty memory stick in my PC, i'm down to 1gig but atleast i found out why i couldn't spend long enough on an art piece without it crashing.

    And here it is, my first digital self-portrait.
    Slight proportional issues since i refused to use photo reference, also i had to forget about finalising it since my tablet is conveniently deciding to die on me.
    Good thing i'm getting a new one.

    Keep doing those studies mate. The 100 heads challenge piece is very cool.
