    To the Point, Line and Shape! [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]

    Allright. I just gonna keep it simple and straightforward in
    this thread, 'cause I have no idea how long it's
    gonna survive the competition in this forum. For all I know it
    might be dead and gone within half-day.

    My plan is to post everyday the best-of-the-day works and
    let you tear them apart with your jaw-breaking critic, so I can
    learn as fast as I can by my mistakes.

    Let's see.
    From today:

    Painter Sketches:

    OC Sketches:

    Easy Toon "Sketches":

    thanks a lot if you're reading this!

    oh yeah. and i forgot all about the study
    in photoshop - it's not finished though, because
    the anatomy of the girl differed from the reference, so
    i decided to drop it

    thanks redpaint.
    i don't look down on myself though!
    pessimism is a pure waste of time in my opinion.
    if no one's looking at the sketchbook though, there's no
    point in keeping it online - i will progress on my own anyway,
    so why bother putting it in here if no one cares about it.

    a shot from an oc session i just had with dorian,
    i like the shading even though it's just a quick lil thing:

    Oi

    I will pay attention to the sketchbook . The animations are diferent, Simple smooth and fluid. I am not the best for the advise on the digital work, but they look like they are coming along ok. I will say that the rendering needs some work Little do I know what kind simply because I dont know myself . And the last one though quick it has a good feeling as well as the black and white sketches.

    And thankyou in advance for the Hosting.

    later,
    sly

    Oi

    You do some fun things with easytoon, and they seem to be getting slightly more complex at that. Out of curiosity what is OC? Keep rockin.

    hey sly,
    thanks for all your comments. i appreciate them a lot!
    but my shading doesn't only need just "some" work -
    i'd be better if i don't do anything else but sketch and paint!
    this reminds me of a something by rebecca brown i just read:
    "Every morning, the first thing I would do was practice.
    It was the first thing I would do when I got home from
    school and the last thing I would do before I went to bed.
    I realized at the very beginning that if you practiced really
    hard, the rewards are even greater."
    Word to that!

    OC (Open Canvas) used to be a freeware painting program
    with the special feature of being able to have network sessions with
    other people on the same virtual canvas. You can find
    the current version on the official website www.portalgraphics.net,
    but it doesn't have the network feature anymore -
    neither is it freeware anymore.
    a great pity in my opinion. i'll pm you with a link for the
    old version with which i also did this today:
    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]
    nothing else for today. i had to work on an essay..

    Oi, and thanks again.

    I will say this, while I have yet to mess around with it, I will mess around to see what I can do. Rebbeca has a good view on the subject, Practice till you are blue in the face then practice some more... I do to I have to practice much more often I look forward to more sketches to see how you come along .

    later,
    sly

    PS thanks for the PM.

    my man
    very last one is one of your strongest.

    trying to crit in general and look for "-" and "+"
    starting with the easy part:

    + good changes in motive matters: full (half body poses, enviros
    + your lines get better a lot (esp. last one!)

    - lots of features misplaced
    - rather "careless" feel overall

    I'd love to see a drawing that you do really patiently.
    careful rendering, maybe contruct a head before
    drawing to make shure perspective is right and
    features get placed correctly, then setting your light
    and redering your scene, constantly thinking about
    where your lightsource is, where your planes are,
    and what the result of the combination of these two
    might look like.
    until all of this has gone to your subconscious, you'll
    have to think about it constantly


    hope this helps!

    first off, two sketches i like:
    (i haven't done much with ink liners lately, so i'm having a blast with it)

    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]
    (beware, the girl is holding a playing card - inspired by sly's animations)

    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]


    'sup dorian.
    thanks for the quality critic!
    the thing why all of these sketches are so loose (or careless
    as you put it), is because they're just doodles. i just
    let the pen slide without thinking too much of what i'm doing.
    it's a sketchbook after all.. sketchy sketchy
    you say that there are many features misplaced.
    could you please point them out or even do some corrections with
    a red colour or something?
    for your desire to see some more careful drawings i'm
    gonna post two finished works - one ink, one pencil.

    contemplating emptiness: (48x37cm)

    nepali woman carrying a basket: (21x16cm)
    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]
    wanna see more finished stuff?


    and three of the dozen hand studies i've been doing lately:
