    Soliloque Sketchbook 04/03 : no critics since Oct. '06, why ?!

    The new things are under !

    Hiya everyone, after I decided in september that I would be a concept artist later (I know it's in an odd way), here I finished my first sketchbook. It took me one month to fill it up. Don't be harsh, this is actually the first time that I put efforts in drawing, before that I was sketching all my notes books and my school agenda.

    Some comments would be appreciate. What should I improve, what should I do next. I never took art class and I'm gonna start nude drawing and perspective in a private school next week, for 2 months.

    I'm kinda proud of how I improve. Tristan, Yseult and the Skinny guy of the last page appeal me. I am satisfied, but I still must improve.
    Next time I'll try to post full concept art. These are just sketchlings. I might show my skills on Photoshop soon too, it all depend if I feel shy or not.

    Soliloque, congrats on starting a sketchbook here, and also on filling up on the physical sketchbook. It's good to see you filling up your pages, blank space is good space for more! Cool to see you experimenting with faces, one thing though is that they all have similar structures. You should try drawing from references [photographs, magazines, etc.] and also from life. Now get crackin' and fill up the pages! Cheers!

    Not really fresh work

    Here's what i've done this winter. Not much, it's my 2th sketchbook. For now i'm working on the 3th and 4th ones. It seems I can't finish a pic, I'm always sketching (what a curse), i'll improve this point this spring. I didn't have the money to attend art classes. Geez, that's me, I'm always saying that'll do something and I don't.. well, shit happens. I'll definitly take some art classes (someday... ).

    Enjoy ! and don't forget to comment =)

    Comment, Dam#(*% !

    Here's only 3 new pics. I'm currently finishing my college diploma in History, so I don't have many time for drawing. At least I'm improving ( I think )

    I also found a summer job in matte painting, never tried to post my matte, maybe I'll do it one time, anyway, I hope people will comment my new works or else I'll finish depressed, crying under my bed. Please comment, I need attention !

    Hey I like your stuff. You definitallty have your own style. However, don't let that stop you from expanding. For example, your noses are good, but for the most part you draw them all the same. Good for style - bad for learning.

    I'm no expert, but I took a drawing class and basically all they have you do is draw from life. So I would suggest you do that, draw some objects around your house. Draw your friends, draw people from pictures (although not from life technically, it will help give you a broader range of people to draw)

    You're definitally off to a good start. Don't get me wrong. You're better than me!

    Don't worry about style now, study your anatomy and figures....get a good grasp of foundations. Style can come later.

    Get some figure and anatomy studies going. I see alot of proportional issues. Also I would like to see some emulations of the artists that inspire you, I think it would help you get a better sense of the animeish style that oyu seem to be going for.

    Haha, thx all, I'm having an anime style because they are free on web, and not american comics ! I'll try to find more american style comics near home. I really dig for Marko's style. I want to be less anime, more proprotionnate with time (yea I need anatomy courses, training all alone is kinda hard!).

    I have a weak comprehension of how to resize an image, I've really tried (change de DPI, and the size) but it always appeared huge on the forums. If someone can help me, I could show more sketchs and doodlings like that,
    Thanks

    The size of your images looks fine on my screen

    I see your enjoying drawing the comic/fantasy type characters.
    As wel all do apperently

    I see a few anatomy studies in your sketchbook, but far to little.
    Those studies are way more important than any of the rendered charcters.
    Try to get your hand at life drawing.
    In the latest updates your lines are very fuzzy aswell.
    Try to loosen your wrist and let it flow.

    Im by far not the best person to give you crits, I'm still learning alot myself.
    The best advice I can give is to just keep on sketching and posting your work.

    Hey there Soli,

    You can really see you're getting better! I really enjoy drawing hands, and I must say your hand studies are looking great! To me, they all look correct and nicely drawn. There's only one that sort of bothers me. It's on the first hand study page on the bottom right cornor. The one with the index finger curling over the thumb. I think the index finger looks sort of long and mabye like it's bending the wrong way to a degree. Of course I could be wrong, but that's the only one I see that is kind of funky. The rest of them look spot on, like I said.

    Great work!

    Sketchbooks on CA give me the thrill to try something new, or harder. Some maybe you'll see tributes to people, beginners or pros, in the next weeks. I'll try to link their sketchbook everytime, so you'll see what entertain me the most. If you want to give a try, or just exchange ideas so we can practise together, let's go ! Pros are not excluded either =), you can always post a hello After all, who doesn't want an enthusiastic and cute fan for themselve.

    So here ya go,

    Looking good.. I've done lotsa copies after artists I like, that has helped me a lot. I learned how objects act in 3-d and roughly how light falls on the surface and describes the form... I'd like to see you do the same. Copying other artists' techniques and all that is good, just remember to give the credit to dem if you're gonna put them online! And use a lot of reference in general, improving will be a lot faster at that point if you do so in my opinion, the more information you get packed in your brain box the more powerful your drawings from the back of your head will be.
    Keep that thing o' yers going!

    Hey Soli,

    Awsome apple! I'm glad I gave you some inspiration (I didn't think my work could give anyone inspiration You made my day. It looks to me you have a good grip on PS. That apple looks a lot better than my first one I posted. 2 crits if I may though, that I have found will make the apples look realistic. On the stem, don't forget to add a highlight and a shadow. That boosts the image up a knotch. And also don't be afraid to put a real strong specular highlight on. The way I do it is from a traditional painter named Helen Van Wyk. She says to "make it, break it, and make it again" when she does highlights. Basically you put on a dab of white (or any specular highlight color) which "makes it" and then blend it in "break it". Then you put another more solid specular highlight on to "make it" again.

    Try those two things and you'll be making awsome apples. I'm really impressed at the one you made though, is that your first attempt at an apple in PS?

    Keep rocking

    Mike

    Hehe, thx Bow for your 2 cents, I'll retry tonight =)

    It's indeed my first apple (got my breakfast as reference in front of me though), I've always used PS for making website until one month ago. The trick of my apple is to use the background's color and draw under with a low opacity. It really help to get to mood right.

    Anyway, I'll post some gestures later too, see ya

    Hey soliloque. Great start for you sketchbook. One thing i would say is in your life drawing studies really pay attention to your proportions, before you go on to lay in the muscles and tone.
    Keep up the good work.

    Warrior Style

    The first rule of Warrior Style is, You do not stop drawing.

    Thanks guys ! I lost my scanner 3 weeks ago and since, I didn't find time to scan my things somewhere else. I'm gonna do a big udpate with tons of stuff pretty soon.

    Please come and check it ! I've really improved (maybe my new job at Ubisoft helped a bit. Sadly, everything I do at work can't be shown on the net, even my personnal doodles, snif)

    Nice to see you update Sol...

    What job do you have at Ubisoft?

    On you paints, i think the value structure is all very similar, and it tends to blend all together.Try work with 3 values, a Light, a mid tone, and a shadow, and just these three. The character also looks very flat, and the overall composition leads me to look right at the center of the picture, which i am sure that is not what you wanted.

    When you are painting try to work with temperature (ie warm and cool), and work with light and dark to really push your contrast and focal point.

    I hope you dont take this crit too harshly.

    Keep up the work, hope to see more
