    Beautiful landscape. I really like the brush work. The grass needs to a be a tad more restrained in palette to stop it from looking cartoony.

    Thanks guys and thanks for the tips, yep kina montreal ruless even if we got 1 meter of snow everywhere.
    Heres what i did today,a cheesy dragon head and a couple of doodles with a brush i really start to enjoy. The piece with the skull is a WIP for a gift , any suggestions or crits is welcome, i still got to do a lot on it, im not too sure how the cat should look, and rendering fur will be quite a challenge.

    again, 2 pages of doodles, i do a lot of these so i may post them all even if they are uninteresting.. i feel like i reached a new step with the sketching since i focused on that for a while, i dont struggle with the process that much anymore and im starting to realize new stuff after i went thru a book '' gesture drawing for animation '' its a great book ,everyone should read it. In one page the author speaks about tangents and their importance, in fact... forgetting them removes all volume from the sketches.. and focusing on drawing them in the first place via contour overlapping seems to help me a lot while sketching to get volume. So there T types tangents and L type tangents... I think everyone unsubscibed my thread cauz i dont post often and dont reply in SB often so ill keep speaking to myself for future reference hahaha. Ooooo kkk.... So here we got heads again, done using a process i really enjoy , so now i feel ready for anything and not affraid anymore of doing things wrong.

    Beautiful work! Your brushwork is so nice, wish I could grasp how to use so few strokes and put them to such good use

    updateeee

    monstertree: thank you sir, few strokes also mean that im lazy too lol.. i always feel like im ruining my stuff if i add detail.. it always ends up looking overworked and i hate it ,maybe i dont have the patience to really finish something, need to work on that..
    Well, ill try to keep this place updated a bit, so i did a few doodles there and there, and was inspired by the DEEP contest to give it a try with fishes but well, nothing really original so far, im probably gonna do a couple of quick thumnails shapes studies for various fish designs.. however i dont plan to submit since i have not worked on a intelligent and original design with background story etc...
    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook unknown visitors =)

    .

    Hmm I seriously need to work on my pencil skills... I also need to get out of my comfort zone, I need to stop doodling random crap over and over and get serious with studying, I need to draw from life more. Anyway.. I said i would post everything to keep a track of my little progress so even if im not too proud of this stuff im posting it... most of it is unrendered because i feel my weakness is good shapes / gesture , so i focus on getting more comfy with the pencil and on building stuff using shapes. I think im at a point where i start to understand how each things an artist need to study comes into play and it should be easier for me to focus on what to improve, i envy ppl at art school, a mentor would be useful. Anyway. And btw i hate those stars things, makes me ashamed to post such crappy pencil. So here are a couple from the last days... I draw a lot but most of my stuff is really not worth showing, mostly construction , gesture, shapes studies and focusing on understanding the best way that suits for me to approach pencil.. I will try to draw from life only for a while to expand my visual library.. im so used to go crazy and messy with a wacom that im having a hard time getting clean contours and taking time between each strokes with a pencil. Enough talk for now.
    Bye

    First time seeing your sketchbook and I gotta say I like what I see! It seems your exellent drawing skills are the strong basis for those loose digital paintings you do, which make for some sweet paintings. Your painting style is loose, which I like, especially because you hold the composition together with strong design of lights and darks. Nice stuff.

    My sketchbook is still in the fetal stage, and I don't have the link, next time.

    guys, you are really motivating me to push my stuff , seriously.. encouragement is always nice,please dotn hesitate to give constructive crits. i really want to improve as much as i can.
    zweiDee: thanks

    Chupacabra: thanks man, your art is great, i visit your SB often i really like your stuff, thanks for dropping.

    Gerbil Fetus: Hey thanks, glad yopu like it, it was a gift for my GF mother , i printed it and framed it, its now in her living room woot woot, yes shes special lol.

    Jie Kageshinzo The sea/beach landscape ?? I used a regular round brush with pressure set on size, at either 60% opacity or 100% opacity. But usually i use a couple of different brush for painting, and another set to add texture to stuff. If you talk about the other landscape with the mountain, i used a brush with a tuip shape, hard on one side, and blurry on the other, i think its from m@'s brushes.

    serhc: thanks !

    brentos8: Hiope you are right lol,, ill drop a comment on your SB once you add more stuff to it

    Oranje Joe: thanks hey heyyyy

    Udpate later probably, until then... alchool time =D

    Thanks Callops =)


    Ok so i spent like 2 hours on this painting , i like it but... i realize that i always do the same composition with the same light direction, i need to try new things. And some scribbling while at work, observations while doodlings trying to fix things in my head. I may try fully rendered pencil character soon... but i feel i need more anatomy study and such first.

    Bye !
