    Shit I didn't even know I had a page 19....

    Thanks you guys for posting,

    Ian - Thanks for the suggestion regarding the text. I really should have taken that typography class in my awesome half a year at community college ... Something else to put on my plate at least i guess. I'm not gonna worry about changing it for those pieces, but for future pieces that need text I will keep it in mind for sure.

    Gugg - There's a bone for ya Sorry for the .. er.. hiatus lately, I've been on the fence on how often I want to post on here, but I'm working on a new project now, so I should be posting more often, especially getting more responses than I had expected to be getting . Thanks for dropping byyyy

    Costau - Well, after the Dominance War stuff I decided to take a little break, so been a bit lazy, however the past week is where most of these drawings come from and you will be seeing more and more as I get busier and busier on a new project. Ya prick

    Hey man I'm liking some of your designs. This one turned out great Link

    I do believe you have always needed to loosen up, and make sure the foundation for your figure is fine before you started in on your rendering. Your static poses are fine, but work on practicing those gestures and don't jump the gun on your more dynamic ones(some of your more dynamic poses make the character look like they have broken limbs). This one link came out good actually, just some foreshortening issues. You have some good ideas, they would just benefit from better care in the presentation.

    All I suggest is more gesture studies, and quick sketches from life or reference. It will help teach you to be more economical with your lines, and get the most out them.

    -Cole

    hello Cole miner, thanks for the suggestions about doing the gestures. I've been collecting reference photos and things to do just that.

    Here is the first practice page of a comic book that I plan to illustrate. This is my first attempt as it were to do this kind of thing, it's quite daunting but I'm enjoying it thoroughly. I will I ran into some consistency issues with this page, and having a hard time telling the story visually. To help reduce the whole fear thing and how daunting it is I've limited myself to doing single pages with a maximum number of 10 panels and in those ten panels I need to be able to describe both visually and through dialogue a whole mini story.

    With this first page here there isn't a whole lot of story elements being represented, although I have most of the story arc planned already. This is really just a practice page to try to get down how I want to try to illustrate this thing, there are a lot of comic book cliches and whatnots that I want to try to avoid, but we'll see.

    This page, if I in fact use it for the actual comic would come as about the 6th or 7th page in the chronological sequence of events, if that makes sense. I didn't finish inking the whole thing, and i probably won't because as I already stated this was only supposed to be a rough draft that I took too far

    Hey man that last drawing is simply superb! I am loving the looser line and the overall character of the figure. It seems like there are a few problems with it though, like the torso might be a little long, or overcompensated because of the garment. Don't loose the structure under massive amounts of fabric! But keep it going, your comic is looking pretty awesome so far

    Hi Sepulverture!
    Now, its my turn to drop by your SB!
    I like your storytelling on the panels above..though doing some studies would push your drawings to the next level man.
    How are things over there in Beijing? Heard there was a bad ass sandstorm there..hope your doing well there in the north man!

    Hmm... I was sure I had commented on your SB before, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    EDIT: After writing my comment, I realized you haven't updated since 2009!
    What the hell, dude?

    You've got quite a lot of nifty character designs going on. To improve on them, I would suggest doing supplementary studies to fully flesh out each and every part of the design.
    Your designs have the overall shape but they lack the little things that make a design seem real and plausible.
    Now, I'm not talking about adding nonsensical details, which is why I say do studies and research the real life counterpart of what you're trying to design - they'll give you plenty of ideas on functional details.

    I like the medic and marine piece from the previous page. You've captured the emotion and interaction nicely. However, I think the glowing white hand coupled with smoke could be misinterpreted as burning the marine.
    If it were me, I would try tinting the effect with green or blue - colours that people have come to associate with 'healing effects'. Or I would get rid of the smoke/exchange it with some other sort of effect.

    Overall, it seems to me that you're focusing too much on rendering/shading your drawings, to the point where it looks like you sometimes spend a minimum of time on a sketch then jump to the rendering.
    I would recommend taking it slow on the drawing stage, put enough effort into the drawing so that it can look good without any rendering. And remember to use geometric construction and drawing through the form.

    Hope that helps.

    HK -- Thanks for replying to my comment in your SB. You are right in your "what the hell?!". Frankly I just lost a lot of drive, although the desire is still there. I have focused so much on other things (like my leather-working) that I haven't done much drawing.

    You are right about my habit of rendering on minimal constructions. That was a habit I developed early on, and never worked to overcome.

    I have done a bit of sketching trying to get back in the swing of things, and when I work on that I will keep your criticisms in mind.

    thanks for commenting!

    Haven't posted for a long long time obviously.

    I Occasionally realize that if I had spent all that time actually working harder and posting and getting feedback and whatnot that I would be worlds better than my current level.

    I have actually done a lot of work in other fields such as my leather work. I was making and selling bags and shoes and accessories during the last two years, but looking back through my sketchbooks in my house and looking around online the fondness for the visual arts was brought back to the foreground.

    To try to get back into the habit, I whipped up an environment study of a sunset.

    I used a really crude cloud brush, but I haven't used photoshop in such a long time that I don't remember a lot of the skills like brush making.

    Also it was essentially a color study to help get back into the swing of things. But please any feedback is welcome to help give me direction for future studies.

    Seems like you have a very good understanding of drapery. I'm completely convinced by all the clothes and such on your characters.

    I'd like to see you be a bit more ambitious with color, and maybe a painting medium (digital or traditional) will encourage you to do so. Otherwise, really nice linework!

    Thanks so much for the detailed help in my SB. I really appreciate it! My recommendation for you would be to do many studies. many many many studies. Think critically while doing them rather than going on "auto-pilot". That will make the largest difference between how much info you absorb. thanks again!

    Dimi -- Thanks for the props man!

    Tempest-Haze -- Thanks for the compliments on my drapery, I studied hard on that for a while, but I am not satisfied with it, so more coming later! Here is another color study. Getting a bit of a better handle on the clouds, although the masses still aren't right.

    Jarrad -- Thanks for replying man! I will remember what you said, it is good advice.

    Here is an environment study. I want to get a good hand on clouds and get more experience with open environments.

    Hey there friend, long time since I posed myself,

    I suppose try life studies of the sky?
    Might make you have to work quicker with the light changing.

    Are those studies from photos?

    Theres some good brush packs around here in these threads, i stumbled upon some just browsing some sketchbooks, If I think of it some time I could try to upload some.

    I would love to do life studies outside. Not really possible here on most days, but it would be a lovely experience doing live environment studies.

    I have been watching the skies more and trying to understand the way the clouds are formed and how the light is interacting with them however.

    yes the last two posts are from photo reference. I saved a bunch of photos from google to do studies with.

    I am just getting back into digital painting, and trying to adapt what I know of brush making to photoshop cs3. I hear cs4 is better for painters though?

    Nice to hear from you again buddy. All the best and thanks for stopping by.

    Hi again,

    Afaik, there isn't too much difference between CS3 and 4. Wouldn't touch CS5 though, bloated with useless features. Horrible.

    Good enviro studies. Dunno if you're already doing this, but it's really helpful to focus on one specific approach when doing enviros, because there are so many things going on at once, you spread yourself too thin when there's no focus.

    E.g. Studying just the tones, color, composition, etc.

    Great enviros and sketchbook at all!
    I have 2 websites full of eviro photos for you. Don't know if you know them.
    http://www.outdoor-photos.com/
    http://www.terragalleria.com/index.html
    Experiment with brushes, you can also try some grayscale enviros which can help you with understanding of deph.
    Looking forward to your next studies.

    HK - I was doing that with the last study actually. I realized in the first of my recent studies (sunset) I was attempting to just render what I saw and didn't have a strong enough focus, so this time around I was focused on how to block in the clouds and working on brushes that would work for clouds.

    Thanks for the suggestion though, I will be sure to give more thought in the future to that.

    Blu01 - Thanks for the suggestion of grayscale, I will try one tomorrow morning before going to work and post it up. thanks for the websites by the way, lots of good stuff on them.

    Hey, Glad you found my little diagram so helpful. I appreciate your feedback in my sketchbook 6months ago. I rarely drop by CA.org anymore, it lots a lot of it's appeal to me when they started the school. I just post on my blog occasionally, unfortunately most of the stuff you critiqued was very old. Check it out here: http://theouterbodyexperience.blogspot.ca/ and my newest blog is here: http://joelhladky.blogspot.ca/

    Doesn't look like you check you sketchbook out anymore either, so whenever you get this is fine. Take care.
