    Sciboy's Mild Insanity [OUTDATED]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!

    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

    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.
