Nice!!! Keep up the good work! Hey, but try not to focus to much on backrounds!
You're making good progress.
A couple of crits:
Pen can easily look like crap, your getting better with it but try to work a lot lighter with it, take your time, and when you think your line is right, define it (try to apply this to your pencil work as well).
The other thing is take your time. A professional would consider a sketch to be an hour's work, and a study may take several hours (4+), I'm not saying you need to take an hour, just take your time and try to finish your sketches, otherwise what was the purpose, what did you learn?
Flip: AND I have both old scanner, and old camera wich make it even worse.
What i mean is that if you guys here on the forum in anyway
'wanna' be able to see what I have done I must use hard strokes AND
then decrease the contrast in the picture, to even see anything, if you
also happen to have a bit of a dark monitor, you wont see anything
of what I have done
I defiently going to think about more quality.
but I guess its good to do those 40 seconds also
maybe just add another 40 second to em...It cant kill me
I can without doubt do sketches for 1 hour, Its just that , that I havent test it yet But, I guess you learnsomething new everyday, what ever you
do 5 minute sketches or 3 hours sketches.. some new way to use the
pen, some new way to draw that special stroke, you name it!
but I guess you learn more by doing studies.
Whoaaa you're moving along fast! I agree that it would be nice to see some things that have more thought and detail as well as the speed stuff. I really like the right page here, I think it would be good to use some human references like that instead of drawing from your imagination all the time, to get actual human anatomy down.
Also I know that Photoshop features are fun to play with, but a lot of them are so overused by newbies that they've become extremely cliche, and a good artist shouldn't really need to use them much if at all. If you start putting in lens flares or cloud renders I will have to kill you
I havent put any Lens flares or Cloud renders in my work,
I hate those filters, I have ONLY and absolutly ONLY use filters when
I have done abstract splash screens to 3DS max, I DO ONLY use
brushes in my work, and/or adjust the images colors and contrast, but
not with FILTERS. I just think the lensflare effect is annoying.
I used it ONE time in my work, and thats when I did a car render..
I dont know if you just warned me from useing em, or if you though I had
use them, but I havent use em anywere.
I use some of M@'s brush and some of Coro's brushes, + the standard brushset notthing less, nothing more.
The profile shot is the most diffucult for me to draw. You, too have many mistakes in that one. I won't go into detail about the shading. The advice here would be to get back to the scetchpad and study some profiles, preferably from other artists. Understand how those work it's the only way for you to get knowledge about them, now that I recon it, you didn't do much face-work at all. So study my friend. Your imagination is treacherous right now.
thx for your input faust, well, this was my first Face studie
I will try to do at least one Digital studie per day.
especially since i dont have a scanner or camera at home now
so I focus abit more on digital ref painting studies and more.
It was more of a warning against thing What I've seen you do is some random brush effects in backgrounds and things, which isn't necessarily bad but doesn't do anything for the picture, so its not really necessary.
Hey Dile, nice update man, good to see you take on the portrait profile. I think its better if you work on the portraits with real mediums first, like pencil and pen. It makes it that much harder to make changes when your painting also. First work on portraits of sketches, do a lot of them, and then if you like any of them from the bunch, scan it in and then paint. This way your getting both your portional exercises and painting. Good to see you worked long and hard on this. Nice sense of shadow around the nose, jaw and temple region. Your really improving with the tablet. But I would say draw your portraits out first before painting them.
i see you put a lot of effort in what you do, and that definately helps you to improve.Keep on studying anatomy, a LOT (didn't scroll through all the pages, but have you tried loomis studies? it seems too me as if some drawing the anatomy is ok, while in others you don't concentrate enought.REally like some thumbnails enviros in page 3.My suggestion is too start practicing one thing at the time, anatomy, lightning, or persective.And most of all, when you do your studies, try and concetrate on what you're doing (in my experience, as much that means, doing anatomy studies on the bus is useless).Hope you get my point, just trying to help.Keep on working, improvement will keep coming
good work. For the profile face could use some work.. Like the neck.. The neck shadow, I like the eyes. The eyes are fine. Why not define the eyelashes a little more? wouldnt do any harm.. I like the hair for some reason!
Keep it up!
Thumbs up Dile 8)
Chisa: I see, thx
Darktwin: Thx , and yeah I will improve
my portrait skills, I sat down yesterday and drawed ppl from Doom: The movie by driving the player in frame-by-frame mode
TheGnoll: Yeah Im doing some loomis studies, although I have
some other books I read when Im not with the computer
Rolo: Thx, I will improve my portrait skills Thx for stopping by !
Wolfbane: Thx dude!
Well not so quality, but a try to pose.
Doddling for 3ds max project later on:
Drawings I did on topic:
Wrong proporations on this one, but I spended alot of time
to fix, re-do and fix
Small toes ?
Whoa! Improvment! See that's the stuff we sketchbook bums wanna see! Great job. ALot of improvment in that little hand you made!
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e7...l/IMG_0404.jpg very well done!!
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e7...l/IMG_0406.jpg --that hand I liked!
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e7...l/IMG_0411.jpg wow! improvment! big step ! towards *magic*
this will be my 38th post!! Heya! I like the creature!!
Awesome ur highlightning skills are getting alot better kee it up and continue the good work!
Wow, Dile, all I can say is your hard work is really paying off. these studies are great. Good to see your measuring with porportion lines. really awesome anatomy studies. I really like the page with your characters, they have a nice gesture quality to them. the drawing you put 2 hours into is very nice, also, its really good to mix it up by doing long studies and short studies like this. Keep using your searching lines like your doing, and everything will fall into place.
Great digital drawing!!, really good improvement. way to take on a tough angle like that. Creature is good, the knights legs are off a bit, but strong post Dile.
wow, just alot of warm comments today
Darktwin: I know the leg was off, I was just about to fix it, but I took abreak and just forgot it, sure I can still fix it, but I let it be
Wolfbane: thx dude, im trying
Rolo: Hey again, Thx for ur input!
keep the comments rolling guys!
Hey Dile, you may no think so, but This is indeed the best figure you did to this time. Try to extinguish this stiffness more, you're doing great already! And don't see working with pencils as traditional man! It sounds like something only old-fashioned people would do. Pencils are in that way better than digitals as you can't that easily erase your faults. Pens are even better in that regard. Don't use erasors or undo-preocedures. They just let you ignore your mistakes.
nah I didnt mean Pencils as old fashioned, I love pencils
but digital is a good copletation also
And about that character: well it should be since I really tried hard on it
2 hours , even more.. even if it didnt turned out like the anatomy god
but hey, it was a studie
thx for your input Faust , looking forward to next
Hey Dile, i just gotta say that ur last anatomy studies rule,
and i wanna see more of em Great work.
I also wanna see some more facial studies, cuz nearly all
of ur guys faces have either cross placement as face or a
robot mask that coveres it. Overall great improvment when u come to think of that uv only been drawing since last year. Just wait and c til u get 16 or 18, then ul rule, and all the time u dedicated to study will pay off (same goes for me )
Keep em rolling bro 8)
If you want to improve your faces, draw some portraits from reference. Draw lots of them. The facial anatomy is quite complicated and you have to get it into your fingers. Practice!
