must agree w dan, i loved the greens but the burning chroma.. keep it up loving the creatures
hey guys, thanks for all the feedback. I completly agree, i got a bit lost in the process with this one.. I got to limit myself to particular colors and not break too much laws with the way i use them. I think i tried too much to blend the sun / gras color to the character.. and again, did not spend any time on a solid line drawing before ''rendering''. Just bought myself some cool new mechanic pencil so i will try to start my next drawings with scanned lines.
good progress here! that last one is sweet! it would be nice to see you try to get a bit more texture into these though!
keep it up man!
hey guys, watched Texas Chainsaw MAssacre last night, woke up with that in my head =P
some black and white photoshop sketching
did a coupe of Loomis study on paper, ill try to scan them when i have time..
I have issues when i start a drawing.. dont know where to start, usually start with the head but i always end up with the same fookin face in the same angle. For the moment i stick with a stick figure but still, it looks dirty at the end.. too many lines. Any tips guys when it comes to figure drawing from imagination ? Like I asked Archipelago, most artist here seem to start off with the contour and shade in but when i do that i tend to end up with a weird pose or weight problems... maybe it will come with time. I never did serious life drawing either so maybe thats where i get stuck.
does that chainsaw even leave a head to collect?
good stuff, especially the first & keep it up.

dan: hehehe dont know heard that chainsaw makes pretty clean cuts thanks for coming back to my SB btw , always cool to get comments.
finnaly managed to make my old scanner work with windows XP, come on Agfa you lazy bastards, make it more simple.
Here's some stuff i did in the last days... trying to get back to pencil..
I think stuff is starting to unlock in my head, but i need to go over a lot of studies and exercice, my anatomy is weak and my lines are not confident enough.. I read loomis books 1 year ago but i will go over it again.
So here's some legs ''studies'' from Loomis book, i think i will simply stick to reproducing the drawings in the book for now and try to fix in my head all the bones and muscles perfectly. I also did one of my first portrait from life '' or should i say from a photo '' i tried to catch the main lines as fast as i could.
And finnaly some spray paint and gouache test i did in my sketchbook.
Hope you like ,even if its beginner stuff,.. Im getting a bit sick of environements , so mastering figures from life and imagination is what i hope to master in the years to come.. and hope to switch from 3d to 2d one day T_T
Crits more than welcome as usual.
jymster: really glad you like... but yes i tried a lot of different approach but never really focused on anything and it shows, I hope to improve m ycharacters and creatures for the moment. Thanks for the kind words, ill try to not deceive you hee hee.
callops: you will see more of this cauz i like too
K, so a really lame update for today... wasnt in the mood to draw but I still went over some loomis pages, here's some armes and misc stick figures from imagination.
Im also trying out different type of pencils, most of my stuff so far was done with a mechanical F pencil, but I think it's not the best tool for me.. I started to do some sketches with very light lines, but its really hard to keep it light with this pencil so I think i will start using something like a 3H or 4H for my initial sketch and switch to the mechanical pencil for the rendering and details.. we will see how it works. I'd be curious to know what you guys think about the different type of pencil. What do you use , why do you use it ?
I'd like to be able to do a full sketch with the same dark pencil but im not sure if im ready for that, if i want to go light with the mechanical F pencil, my lines tend to be a bit shaky since i got to watch my pressure.
awww but drawing is so fun, have a nice day guys
this one http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1173717633 is awesome!
as for the pencil question, just use whatever works for you, it really dosnt matter aslong as it works, in the end its just a stick with some kind of graphite on the bottom.
love ur style!!!
pld: NEED CRITIQUE! But BEWARE your Eyes might BLEED OUT of YOUR eye SOCKETS <---cause I really suck and haven't done shit pld:
