    The first one seems to be lacking a bit of contrast. The secound one is really good. Do you care to just post a few pictures about what you do when you make them? Do you mass a lot of random forms and then refine them?

    @iolarnula: thanks

    @Njord: pretty much nailed the process there, ill take some screenshots next time i do one so you can see it though.

    some school exercizes, they give us an ortho, we build the object in perspective. these are kind of messed up and poorly scanned.

    Interesting drawings. If I have understood it right, then you can interpret those orthos in a number of different ways? So that each person makes something different. Or was there a right answer to the problem? Nice studies anyways.

    @Njord: there was one correct answer for each ortho, it was mostly a technical drawing exercize

    @Njord: thanks, but i feel like a jerk making tutorials when I'm not at the skill level where I should be teaching others.

    instruction page for school and a random doodle page

    Hehe, cute mask Thanks for showing your process, I will have to try that out myself.

    Hey, are you doing industrial design? Just cos I noticed your object study drawings there, which have good perspective by the way.

    Even if it doesn't look like you, it's still cool.

    I like your zombie work.

    Is the first one a kid standing next to a volcano? why is the kid standing there? Did he start the eruption? It looks like he is floating, is he? Is he a kid at all or just a midget, dwarf, halfling? Or is he even smaller than that. Like a brownie from the movie willow, standing next to a burning tree stump? I gotta know! Vague pieces of are always drive me nuts till I know what they are supposed to be! Maybe that's why I can't handle abstract art.

    I like the colors on the ship, and the half finished look you've got going. I can't bloody figure out how to paint in photoshop. I can't get the brushes to look like paint the way you and everybody else is doing. Any advice you could give?

    @Q-Caddlewick: to tell the truth I don't put too much thought into a lot of my doodles, narrative wise. they're mostly just to keep my hand moving and for warming up before doing class work, the intreputation is up to the viewer i suppose. and imo the way to enjoy abstract art is to not try and associate it with anything figurative, that will drive you nuts.
    as far as photoshop painting goes, for me the trick is to treat photopshop like traditional media such as markers or paints, to get the "painterly" look i just use large softer brushes to block in colors and then go back with smaller and smaller brushed for details. the hard round airbrush preset in photoshop is a good all purpose tool and custom brushes are great for adding texture. the main thing to keep in mind is that it's just a tool like your pencil or pen and to treat it accordingly. it helps a lot if you use a tablet and have the pressure jitter set to opacity too, it makes it feel a lot more natural.

    some school sketches, nothing special, have to make an object that presents 3 pieces of fruit and these are just preliminary ideas

    those sketches are looking pretty tight man. the master chief helmut is where its at. you have the nice highlight right against your vignette. although dont forget that vignettes have a very strong graphic quality and affect the composition of your page. try using larger and smaller ones if you going to use more thatn one on a page. makes the shit pop. you chose some complicated shit to draw, those break peddles (or whatever) are pretty tight. try to get your line quality up. be decisive and start with the big shapes and work small.

    really good batch this time!

    [jawdrop] Wow, all of your design stuff is impressive. Very cool helmets, especially the media influenced ones. You have a great grasp of perspective.

    I set my opacity to be pressure sensitive, and it's helping. (I think) Thanks. I'm afraid that part of my problem is that i'm over working it. To much adding and taking away until it turns into a muddy mess.

    I plan on going back through this sb once I get my connection problems on my normal computer cleared up. I'm using an old isp right now and its dirt slow. Keep an eye out for more comments.

    Q-C

    I like the ones with the use of the orange color. It adds a nice focus point. The rest of the drawings are good.

    So are you actually going to be making this fruit display, or are you just designing it?

    I have to agree with the last dude you posted. "large array of weapons" is a good philosophy. Thats why he looks so happy.

    School stress? Isn't it enough to drive you batty

    Monocromatic, nice. My favorite would be the lock. Don't ask me why.

    Something about the zombie moose mask bugs me. The photo that is, not thte mask. It's like it needs a more dynamic angle, or more contrast or something. I can't put my finger on it. All of the others are great, though I can't figure out to save my life what the last one is supposed to be.

    What kind of camera are you using? Are they digitally manipulated?

    @Q-Caddlewick: that mask shot isn't the greatest in the world, I probably will retake that one. I'm not sure what kind of camera these were with, I borrowed it to take them, it was nothing super fancy though. I edited the curves and added borders in pohotoshop, but other than that nothing, my school has a pretty kickass photo studio we get to use so it's pretty easy to get good lighting conditions. and the last photo is a hot glue gun and glue sticks.

    some pages, the last 10 were in one sitting today and you can watch them get progressively crappier as i got more and more tired, it's kind of funny.



    edit: dammit dammit dammit, I forgot a page, guess I'm getting up early tomorrow to finish my homework

    dude those abstracts are badass! I'd love to see them taken further into full compositions, I think you have enough going to push and push!

    Aside from that all of the simple forms are sooo nice to see. It's funny how much easier everything gets when you spend a day drawing spheres and cylinders...

    I felt in love with that photograph of the zombie mask. That picture is looking do professional. Would also say it looks like its made in a 3d program.
    Is that a special refective board you have there under it? The instructions futher up the page are also good and it accomponies it well.

    @easy tiger!: thanks man, I'll probably work back into those abstracts when I get some more free time.

    @notspecialist: they teach us some pretty basic photoshop stuff, most just adding color to sketches so far but it's better than nothing.

    @Njord-E55: thanks, I took it on a fiberglass sweep table with a light underneath it (sort of like this: http://images.digitalmedianet.com/20...table_side.jpg only with fiberglass instead of paper so light can shine through it)

    some chair stuff for school and a monster guy. i'm not too crazy about the colors on the chairs but really don't know what to change
