    good start... im liking that surrealistic stuff you got on the 1st post, but it seems to me your working tightly.. need to loosen up w/ the starting lines n whatnot.. btw that fox thumbail sketch looking great.. id like to seem more sketches like that.. rough but accurate w/ values... keep going at it!

    So you'd like be see less contour lines basically?

    no no no not at all, id like to see things that basically take up more space on a page. your drawing a lot like i used to.. i always concentrated a lot on one tiny little spot and tried to render the hell out of it.. i mean sometimes it works, but most out of all it just looks like you ignored everything else (white page wise). by loosen up i mean have more confidence in your line work, it seems your scared to mess up by working a tad bigger.. but it helps a lot. for me it helped me put an environment and perspective, basically everything else besides a character or a subject of the theme. and in the long run, it will help you basically do illustrations like most of the pros in this board posting.. all you need is a bit of time and you'll whip stuff like i do and hopefully even better.. your sketchbook pages really remind me of my older sketchbook from maybe 2 years ago.. so keep working at it

    yeha try to do more sketches like the fox.. it looks rought with the lines, but it seems accurate and precise.. if you can start doing more quick correct drawings whats to stop you from making more time consuming fully rendered correct drawings? mm yeah basically the values really caught my intrest because it just pops out and the lighting looks correct to me.


    o n for me to do a polished drawing is inexistent. lol. almost everything i do is either half assed or not even close to done.. but recently what ive been doing with my sketches is try to layer them. start with a lighter shade, then go darker in other areas..and darker again if needed.. and i usually blend, smudge & highlight w/ the eraser to sort of combine everything together.. cross hatching seems to always stick with me tho, even in my digital works if you noticed.

    neways keep going at it, ill try to help you out as much as i can

    Hey Jo, like your concepts - you definitely have some cool concepts and i'm sure a healthy imagination to go with it. Some very creepy looking stuff here.

    Bout that last one - I really like the different shadow behind it, but the foreground figure doesn't quite look "weighted" - maybe there's something about the posture that doesn't really agree with the way the feet are on the tip toes?

    Anyway, keep putting up more stuff!

    Again, nice ideas here. Just keep working on the fundamentals like all of us. pay particularly close attention to proportion, light/shadow and perspective. As for construction lines, I would like to see more, at least in the early stages of the drawing. I'd also like to see you loosen up, using longer sweeping or 'searching' strokes. Don't worry about stray lines so much. If you keep your initial lines from being excessively dark, it should be no trouble cleaning up the drawing. of course all of this goes in hand with training the eye and we could all use more observational drawing. Keep it up!

    natsch-

    thank you, yeah i see what you mean. actually it wasn't even meant the she was standing on toes, but i suppose i shouldn't have made background darker to make it seem she/it was standing like that.... ohh well thanks for pointing it out (:

    MurderClaus-

    yeah i will defiantly try to draw longer lines with more flow in them(:
    when you say oberversonal drawing the first thing that comes in to minds is boring.... but i guess it can be fun if i actually try it xD

    thank you both!

    Nice, good to see you posting more.. your shadings looking great, your figures are definatly getting there.. theres a lot of energy in every drawing you made so far, it seems your struggling with prepotions on the human figures, perfectly understandable i remember when i was at your stage people would always recommend me to get Andrew Loomis books.. heres a link ( http://www.fineart.sk/index.php?cat=1 ) he was a illustrator who was pretty big in the mid 20th century.. and his how to draw books are quite useful. Here's his biography if your intrested in finding out more about him: http://www.bpib.com/illustrat/loomis.htm , so look through his books online and try to copy and make some studies that look intresting to you.
    Also whats said on top is also true.. try to do some life drawings.. nothing too elaborate for your first tries.. maybe just sketching out a fast little thumbail of your friends and people you randomly see outside. It seems you already have some great still lifes.. that glass cup on the table looks great!
    Remember if you can copy better from life, your imagination works start to really get better and more accurate.

    So summarizing everything i said is: you gotta work a bit on preportions try to check ou t loomis books, your shading is really good, and try to sneak in some more life drawing.. seeying how that you can do some good still lifes.

    Good luck and keep going

    o and to what you asked earlier.. some of my older work i might have on my dev art thing (http://lordspewbarfer.deviantart.com/) maybe once i get my website fixed up and working ill put some of my older cg work.. i garantee you your self esteem will boost up beyond belief haha

    Hmmm much movement and dedication going on here I like that
    I especially like the last two colored drawings, implementing design elements like in the last one I've yet to learn And impressing rendering on This one.

    I'd recommend you to work some bit more on your lines, though. They are still a bit scratchy

    Hello!
    Some tips, use less black when shading in paintngs. It tends to make things look very dirty. Try mixing in some orange tones in your pinks, and use references!
    You should probably try to look into some perspective drawing also. Your 3dsketches seems to lack vanishing points. Even though the lines are barely visible (pointing towards points, rather than being paralell on a box) they're still important for giving depth into your drawings.

    Keep working. It's getting better

    .peace

    Thanks,
    the first tip was very use full! thanks
    but i didn't relay want perspective in my "box" drawings, you see its not supposed to look nice, they are supposed to be simple drawings for the 3D people(i make simple concepts for the 3D boys) in a project I'm working on. but I also give them more my view of what the ships will look like in space... so that is when i will use perspective (:

    thank you for the comment (:!

    Interesting! Very nice concepts. You have a very good imagination... better than mine anyway (or maybe i should stimulate it more). I like you shading(values) a lot. keep it up!
