    Heya Kronos,

    Thanks for all the love posted in my sketchbook ^^
    I like what you're doing with all those characters, they're all so CUTE! I think that is really your strength, all that cuteness.. The main thing for you to work on is I think (digital?) painting technique. Try to use rather high opacity and large brushes. Don't go into detail too soon, and try some brightness/contrast adjusting or colour adjusting along the way just to try things out
    The last WIP thing is definately in need of some brighter highlights and a bit more colour variety maybe? I like what you're doing there by the way, but watch out with the black/greys, maybe some reflect lights on the edges of the creature and a bit more saturation? Ah well I'm definately not great at this, so I'm just saying stuff.. But try it out, just try out a lot
    I'm definately quite jealous at those pencil characters and drawings in general. aaha CUTE

    love
    Marleen

    WOAH. It's been awhile since I last posted. weeeeeeeeeeeh... New stuff from you.

    The figure drawing looks good. The lines are really strong. You should watch the poportions on the life drawing heads. >_^;

    You should try and explore colors. In other words try to use a larger palette instead of 3 colors for your "realistic" paintings. ^_^;

    I love the cartoons. Please post more of those.... those are really fun to look at.

    ok, so i'm starting to try work on my desaturated and limited palette tendencies.... that being said this is a very wippy WIP at the moment, but i would love some feedback on how you geniuses out there think its going

    so yeah!

    @ NoŽ, thanks again, your comments are all true and im taking them to heart, except the one about high opacity and large brushes... i try to use large brushes all the time (although i do often find myself fiddling with little ones from time to time) and pretty much always have my brush set to 100% but with opacity and flow set to pressure sensitivity... but yeah absolutely everything else you said was awesome and right on the dot thanks heaps!

    @ Lynn, thanks and yeah i do tend to do large heads in life drawing from time to time, grr its annoying.... and yeah about the "exploring colours" thats definitely what i need to do and what i intend on doing

    He looks way too young.... if you defined the wrinkles on the guy , he'll look more like a grandpa. ^^;

    It's too early for me to give color citques at this stage of the painting.. o_o; I love what you done with the nose.

    yeah lynn, thanks i know what you mean, i wasn't always intending for him to be old but i liked the hair.... i don't know if i'll make him old to suit the hair or change the hair to suit the face, i do kinda like the baby-face thing going on at the moment....

    i'll update that pic SOON!

    but for now, just some fooling around, really bad i know, but it was fun so meh

    thanks llothcat, zbrush is a really awesome program thats fur shur. i'll definitely have more models and stuff everynow and again.

    here is a generic ogery thing... i thought i'd post before i do the feet as i'm sure i'll screw them up, i REALLY need to do some feet studies.

    Attention!!!!, does any one have any "hints" or tutorials or just advise on "rendering" with pencil, possibly more to do with the technique than anything else?

    thanks in advance!!!!!!!

    a couple life drawings and a study of michelangelo's david. i was trying to work on line economy and confidence in the life drawings, and i guess rendering in the david study... although his right eye is a little screwed.


    ...crits?

    Hey kronons !!
    Nice updates. The forms is getting interesting.
    But don't forget how to do your hatching. Try to follow the form as much as possible. You seem to do it in always the same directions....and it looks like you're left handed.. ? =)
    Besides that, try to keep some highlights and some very darks. Contrast is the main thing that gives depth.
    Keep it up

    great !!
    Love the details in the eye .
    See ? the shading's better. the direction of the one on the belly adds alot of form.
    Nice work !

    I guess the only real tip that I can give you when it comes to pencil shading is... You hold your pencil as if it was a butter knife. Then you render it lightly and build up your values.


    I like zbrush stufΦΦΦe... o________o; It looooks so professional.

    Then keep working on the figure drawing. ^_^; ooo... I found a link that might help you.

    @Daniel, thanks man, i'm working on it at the moment i think i need to do some studies of planes and stuff to understand HOW to follow the contours of the form??? do you agree/understand what i mean?


    @Lynn, hey thanks a lot, that link was really cool! as for the rendering technique, i kinda want to learn the more linear way, like this person for example http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=58065 where the tone is still described with line rather than slow build up of butter . and thanks again for the zbrush comments!!!


    @Razorb, thanks, i've been doing zbrush on and off for the last 7 month's or so, but yeah its a really cool program that gives you a lot of freedom and feels really natural


    @BANCK, hey man, yeah i have a problem coming back to something i started, and as a result most of the stuff i do is never really finished, but i am working on it....


    -----------
    -----------

    so yeah heres a little update on the Vermeer study, like i say it is small, but i think its looking a lot better myself hopefully you guys can actually see a difference!

    Nice work mate.
    The lighting and colors are solid. The brushwork is discreet and efficiant.
    About the hatching direction, i see what you mean. Maybe some cross contour hatching might be a good approach...It's a bit hard but you might see a whole new way to shade your characters.

    @Daniel, hehe, i only just found out what cross contour is! i think? is it the stuff where every line follows the contour of the body, kinda like volumetrically? anyway, as i just found out what it is, i don't have any in this post but it sounds like a really good idea, so THANKS A LOT!!!!!


    well here is my little update, i haven't drawn much in the last couple days but i just did these Bridgeman studies... i think i'll set a goal to copy the entire book.... hopefully that will help some, even though it doesn't have much to do with what i was talking about before

    Good good!
    Now, try to keep the directions you used for the hatching in mind, and do some more. Experiment on what can or cannot work.

    ahh, this was FUN... this is probably the first proper time i've really used painter. its just a paint over from a photo (davi did the same thing for a tutorial and i thought it looked like good practice) , and its definitely not finished, but yeah, i'm quite happy with it, i didn't colour pic from the photo, i used my eye for the whole thing so i think i got a little learning down there and really the main point of this was to get familiar with painter.... and i'm definitely not familiar with it, but more familiar than when i started, so yeah!

    here's the ref, http://nm-arts.net/book/angelina-5629e.jpg

    and there are also some quick head studies from charles dana gibson....? anyone heard of him? quite cool stuff

    You can resist the urge to post.... XD

    *Some of the heads has way too much shading... When I mean that. It's too dark.

    *The bridgmen studies are good. Maybe you should apply those drawing concepts to gesture studies and doing some from your mind. I think he defines the muscles and exaggrates them so you can see them...

    * The lastest painting is ok.... the colors needs to be a little bit darker... and her face is too warm. I'm trying to say is the bottom of her face need to be a little cooler...

    Thanks Lynn, your right about everything, i have kindof started to apply what i'm learning from bridgeman to my own stuff, but only really really quick and crummy sketches, but i can definitely see a difference

    for now heres another page of bridgeman stuff and a drawing from photo ref... i'm kindof pleased with it although there are quite a lot of things wrong compared to the ref but, meh whatcha gunna do, next time will be better.


    OOOH, page 4
