ogar555's sketchbook [Updated 19th mars 2007] Bigassamountofpics, slowpokes beware.
I've been considering fixing a sketchbook here for a long time now. But tonight i finally decided.
Why didn't i make one earlier? Cause i kept thinking: "I have to get better at drawing before starting a sketchbook"... Which is essentially really dumb. So anyhow, first piece.
you're making really nice marks, do you do woodcuts at all? if not, i hightly recommend giving it a shot. you'll love it. my one real crit is that the eyes on the full head don't seem like they're sunken in enough, pretty surface-y and the form of the ear is kind of odd. post some more stuff up.
great skull studies, keep going with them! I think you should do more stuff with real media instead of in painter though, you can allways come back to painter later with a strong foundation from real media.
hope that helps
Thanks! I will definately do more of em! And this time... with... a regular pen... and a paper.
Oh, well i dabble a bit in both actually. It's just that i can't work as fast in traditional. And it's expensive... But i love it!
One great thing i noticed though: after using Painter for several weeks and testing out many of the tools. Finding some i like and feel pretty comfortable with using. I got the idea to try something different in art class. I usually only draw with pen and paper. So i tried Pastels and the first pastel pic i ever drew turned out great! I believe its cause i could practice lots and lots of times in Painter. So i just used the experience gathered there and applied the same techniques and it worked fine!
Anyhow, some sketches i did two days ago but forgot to post:
Still Painter, i've done some regular sketches but i'm to lazy to install my scanner right now.
