Great sketchbook! The biggest thing I learned looking through is that an emphasis on gestures can really pay off. Your newer figures have a very organic feel and there's a real sense of movement from one form to another within the figure itself. I bet that the gestural approach accounts for that.
I noticed that you post a lot of the digis fairly large when they'd be easier to read at a lower size for optimal viewing. It's useful to have a larger ver around to see actual size detail etc, but it'd be great if the in thread pic was smaller with a link to the larger one below it.
fedezz - thanks, will work that in when i get back
guitarjames - hmm, i dont know if its that i'm more worried, its that when i mess it up at that stage i get discouraged and decide it would be better to just start over... I actually have further stages on like 50% of the digis in this book, i just hated the results and moved on. Thank you for the insight - it helped me figure out a little more
oldnoobie - thanks, i guess thats true
Craig Houghton - Thanks for checking out my book, I strongly believe gestures are the best way to learn Alright, i have wondered if i was posting stuff too big before, i'll take the size down a little (i actually already make them about 1/3 of the size i work at on average, so i'll go for a 1/4 or something) Thanks for dropping in
old2noobie - thanks, will do
Love the support and greatly appriciate the feedback guys. Like i said, going out of town for 3 days - feeling much better though so i should get lots of drawing done in the car. Here are some doodles that i noodled on all week.
You need to work more on character development, now that you got accepted to college. Try working more on our characters, try coming up with new ones. Create your own Ryu-baeroc or something, i want to see something that isnt relavent to getting better. Just work more on creating "cool" looking things, not things like studies or practice pics. Create characters man, draw dante, or even just redraw some of our existing characters. I check your page like everyday, but i see mostly the same stuff. I like seeing new things from you, that anngel chick was a step in the right direction i think. I want to see something new, something different like every other day. No more studies, until you create i character. Apply your knowledge of the physical form to new interesting characters. If you absolutely want to do some studies, do studies of armor and weapons to get better at creating new characters. I hope to see some new stuff soon.
arvalis - heh, i get what you mean but its not really that i am still just studying to get better. studying helps me warm up for creative stuff and it keeps me in practice when i am completely out of ideas, instead of just not drawing. Armor/weapons studies are on the agenda (and if you ever want to come to life drawing with me, just let me know...it's a lot of fun)
guitarjames - thanks
A little work on a lot of stuff, crit any of it please
