    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:

    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

    and while i'm at it why not post the wip shot of another
    portrait i also posted in the other subforum (wips)

    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.

    wanna see more finished stuff?

    some random sketches:
    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]

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

    do you know these images before you fall asleep?
    when the hypnogatic imagery actually becomes scenes..
    i just fell asleep on the table for a splitsecond and that's
    what i saw:
    (of course not really 1:1, because my skill is so ridiculous
    that i couldn't possibly portray it as i saw it.. anyway,
    i remember a friend of mine saying in the image that
    'this is how thoughts are created'. made perfect sense
    while i was still in the dream(?), now i have no idea
    what was meant by it...
    kinda f&*ed up the rendering of the head)
    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]

    btw. anyone read dali's 50 secrets to magic craftmanship?
    there he actually describes a technique (the sleep of the key)
    to use these pre-dream images/scenes for your art ..

    those little animations are somewhat interesting. as for your sketches, they are lookin good so far, but try to clean them up more and work on your forms on anatomy.

    rewind, good to see you posting a lot. Would like to some more studies as some of the characters seem to be a bit off. We learn in this game called art and then advance through levels with improvement. Keep it up!

    thanks for the comments peeps.
    sly: the honor is all on my side. . your animation skills r0xor!
    m.smith: yep. anatomy is a biggie. but i think it's not just
    that. also perspective, gestures and everything that plays a role really..
    zord: thanks. what exactly is 'off?'
    shesh. people keep telling me my stuff is off. features are
    off. i kinda see that, but i don't exactly know where the
    problem lies - else i wouldn't do it in the first place. man,
    i need a teacher! (lookin' forward so much to florence)
    could anyone please point out some of my mistakes to me?
    i'd be happy happy..
    thanks!

    Doing well! One thing that comes to mind (dunno if anyone's already said this) that your faces can get a little too round, try adding more realism or bumpiness to the faces and they'll look more realistic + different. Keep it up!

    but since i couldn't find the 0.3 liner it was kind of a bummer
    trying to imitate the lines with a 0.1.)

    I have a slow connection, so I can't view all the images in the time I have now. But for sure, I will be back to check out the other images.
    I admire your dedication to art and the many posts you've done already since November. This is my hardest thing to do... get started in drawing all the time no matter what. There's always distractions (ie. movies, games, etc) and I need to get those out of the way.

    I agree with Asoir and saw how round some of the faces you had were. It's almost reminds me of a certian cartoon character (but I can't pinpoint it). Other than that, I enjoy the first paintings that I could see with the loading on my connection. Bbs (be back soon).

    And thanks for the comment on my sketchbook.

    a little oc session, for teh amusement of y'all:
    To the Point, Line and Shape!  [Dec5th, Life is beautiful]

    matt: thanks for dropping in. nice sig, btw!
    yeah. distraction is a work-killer. i've been fighting a lot with
    it lately, too. but i think i knocked it out for the time being.
    once it gets up again i might knock it dead just to make sure
    round faces.. yes, round faces all around. i read and watch a
    lot of japanese comics/cartoons, so i suppose that's where it
    comes from... gotta change that style! - at least a little

    Hi dude, thanks for the post. Thought i would return the favour

    You've got the beginnings of a good style here, and you show a lot of imagination and your hand studies are really nice.

    I think you need to work a little on your faces though. Do loads of quick studies (really quick) from all different angles, and all sorts of different people. Work on what's actually there, rather than what you think you see...trust me, the two are always further apart than you think.

    Oh, good anims as well. Keep posting!

    Thanks for the compliment on the sig.
    I like your pieces with the clothing and mechanical stuff. Very cool that you spent the time to think about it. I love doing that sort of stuff, but always trick my mind into thinking it would take me ages to think up a mecha bot or something. Someday though... maybe like today or something when I'm not studying... will be the day I do that. Haha... I bet it would take me a good 5 hours just to get the details on paper, then another 12 hours to paint the mech bot. Haha... that's fantasy talk for me... gosh I need to learn the body's muscles, bones, etc. I've got to get me good references... I think that's the key to good art. Practice and great references, because if you painted/drawed what was in your mind all the time, you'd just be drawing fantasy stuff that did help you learn at all. This is the habbit I have to break.

    Nice stuff... practice, practice, practice! "I'll be back."
