    Flying Milton's Sketchbook I'm Still Alive!!!

    Hi, I've been thinking about doing this for a while and finally brought myself to it. I'm a 20 year old aspiring digital painter. While I still havn't started college (or even applied), I figure critiques from here would definitely be helpful. Here are a few of my latest pictures.

    New stuff is at the end of the thread

    And some stuff from a thread on another forum. The subject was stupid pokemon.

    Nice stuff. You seem to have a nice sense of color (something I wish I had) You already know where to go from here. Draw from life like you said and you're bound to improve by leaps and bounds.

    Since I plan to start updating this again I figured I should put in my last two C.O.W. entries here. I know there is no chance in hell for me even to get a vote, but I could always use the practice.

    I figure it would be better to bump my old thread than to start a new so here goes.

    Now that I have alot more time on my hands, I should be able to keep up with this a bit better. If anyone could tell me how to change a thread title, I will be forever in your debt.

    Really good humor in your work. The pokemon, spongebob like posts were really classic! Like the clownfish as well. I will reccomend working on tightening up your paintings so they dont look so fuzzy and blurry in parts (especially the first set). Great start so far man. Keep it up.

    Thanks, I have been working pretty hard on tightening up my rendering. I havnt been making as much progress as I would like to thanks to video games.

    I guess I should try to curb taht, at least for the month.

    Updating with something I was working on for C.O.W. before I realized it was way too similar to those things in Betelgeuse. I see no reason not to finish it though. Just won't enter it.

    cool stuff man! the last one is really nice especially, very tight rendering

    one critique though, you make the focal point the present thing on its tail in the composition, but you gave the head a lot of really beautiful attention in your rendering. but because of the composition the "viewer" feels like they shouldn't be looking at the head, and the way the tongue bits break the border don't look all that nice imo.

    anyway, just stuff to think about in future i guess, and i'm giessing a lot of it was to do with how your idea changed and all.

    anyway, don't be afraid to post pencil sketches or studies on any other stuff you got lying around, the more the better!

    also to change the name of the thread just edit your first post and change the.... subject i think... or whatever column is the name of the thread

    Hey man, thanks for the comments. I will have to work on my composition alot more in the future. I'm soo used to drawing just characters/critters that I have a hard time working on even the simplest environments. Composition has never been a thought to me.

    I start my Oils Class (first real art class ever) on Thursday and I'm scared shitless but also excited. I'd love to post my pencil work and the stuff from the class but I am currently scannerless and without a camera.

    A few quickies from the last couple of days. I have a few others I did but I cant seem to find them now. If I do I will update this post.
