    LoTekK's Digital Sketchbook

    Been lurking here for a looong time. And I know I need mucho improvement, and this section has always been quite the inspiration. These are all done in Sketchbook Pro on my TabletPC.

    Some gestures and value studies from photoref (over on the CGTalk anatomy forum). My gestures need a lot of work, as far as line confidence goes, that's for sure.

    And a self portrait I knocked up tonight (this one's from life, not photoref).

    Cheers, and tear me a new one!

    If there's one thing I hate about working in Sketchbook Pro, it's that I can't have hard-edged and translucent brushes. They're either translucent and feathered, or hard-edged and opaque, due to the way the brush stamping works.

    Anyways, value study from photoref. Unfortunately, my chick looks nothing like the ref.

    I feel like such a slacker compared to everyone else. Need to put in more time.

    I agree. Plus, your values are pretty much dead on (thanks for posting your ref along with the value studies).

    Hey, man. Just thought I'd drop by and check out your book. Looks pretty nice. keep up the good work. Only crit I can really offer you is on your value study painting of the girl form photo ref, you may find htat smoothing out all the blotchy spots on her forehead for example may produce a better texture.

    Inkchick, Blaise, seansea, Sepulverture, thanks!

    Sepulverture: Yeah, I'm still trying to get used to the way Sketchbook Pro handles its brushes (the stamping is very different from Photoshop's brushes, which is what I've been used to since I first started digital work). I definitely need to work on that some.

    Here's another sketch and value study I did tonight. Idiot that I am, I went off and turned on the power saving features in my display driver, which has the effect of making stuff seem more contrasty while on battery. Which is my lame excuse for why the values aren't as pushed as they could be.

    Nice studies, and thanks for the comment in my book. Your big boobed babe looks pretty good, but could handle some sharpening up crisper edges in particular in the appropriate areas, and adding detail to her hands and face will help a lot (assuming you haven't already started to do that).

    you're picking some fairly tough subjects to draw, Although I guess it's better to throw yourself in the deep end if you say you need alot of improvement. Good tones as well keep up the momentum, brother.

    Sepulverture: Yeah, if there's one huuuge weakness I appear to have developed in the last year or so, it's my seeming reluctance to push my stuff past the blocking out, and into the sharpening up and detailing. I don't think I'll be working the big boobed chick, and am gonna jump into some others. Right now I want to work more on getting my basics down, like values, as well as figures. I figure I can jump into the rest in a bit.

    Ned: Yeah, I popped open my "Chicks" reference folder and grabbed a pic with foreshortening and a funky pose so I could work on constructing the figure properly. I have a knack for doing that, throwing myself into the deep end, as it were. Thanks for the comments.

    It seems evident to me that faces and hands (especially of the female variety) terrify me. Might be worth doing a bunch of studies of the two.

    I realized as I posted that I made her legs way short. o_O
