    This messed with my fragil mind>

    I like the woman in charcoal on this page, and I think the more you draw these figures the more you'll progress. Maybe try a figure in that ps landscape style, that'd be dope.

    You and me both sabe. Well, I'm saying otherwise with that landscape. Ask for crits and you shall receive. With that landscape, the sky comes across as way flat. A piece is usually more interesting if there are differently sized elements. With all the patches of color being the same size, it reads as kind of boring. Don't think of it as painting the sky in an interesting way, but as painting it how it should be seen. It looks like your light source is coming from the upper left, but it's not hitting the top of the ruined wall on the left, or the side of it. Your horizon line is too low, draw some vanishing point lines and you'll see where they intersect. Think of areas that would reflect little bits of light, like edges of building walls. Colors look pretty good. If you fix that stuff, then you'll have a much stronger piece. Also, for your characters, make sure they follow vanishing point rules as well, the guy with wings is standing on a different plane than the box he's on.

    crit heaven

    NopainNogain - Thank you. Next project will be photo-ref.

    rayk - Wow thanks for all the crits! You can tell me if i got it right this time.

    sabe2003 - Hehe. Thanks. I've tried doing people in the digi realm and it hasn't turned out well so far, but i'll keep working on it!

    Blue Severin - Thanks! Your info helped me a lot, along with rayk's. You can let me know how you like my changes. I don't really see what you mean about the guy with wings... can you explain it a little differently? Or show with crude red lines in PS... Anyway, thanks for the crit-tastic post.

    New version. Changed the angles on the buildings, added more spots hit by light, took out some stuff, added more atmospheric fading, messed around with the sky and the color scheme in general. Crit her up!

    man, you've been hard at work. i'm diggin those life studies you just posted. this one: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1158774489 is really nice. if i were to crit anything, i'd just say to pay attention to the detail in the hands and feet. it seems like you leave that out in a lot of your sketches. other than that, keep it up dude. by the way, nice face studies here too: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1158528495

    Some of these figure studies are fantastic. I'm very glad to see how loose your lines are in them. That is something I wish very much I did myself, however I don't. Keep it up and you'll be drawing circles around the best of them! ^_^

    Back to the Basics

    guitarjames - thanks for the crits

    artzealot - Thanks, will keep working on it

    hyptosis - thanks

    Alright, i have been kind of relaxing with regards to art lately, mainly just my figure drawings and a little bit of PS doodling. This has got to change. My motto when i really "started" my life as an artist one year ago was "back to the basics". I was going to work my way up from ground zero and become the best. I've come a long way since then, but i've lost sight of my goal. So now, here, i'm going back to the basics again. Every day i will do either a SP, still life, or life figure study and post it here. Only traditional media, the wacom is going to get some rest.

    If i don't keep it going EVERY day, i want harassment, lots of it. Here begins my journey. Last two were 10 min and 30 min respectively, portraits took up the rest of the time.

    hi!
    you are working hard - thats good! I can see some progress here, esp. the last nude is much better than previous

    I can see that you are struggling with flatness in your art you "think" 2 dimensionaly you must learn to build your figures from basic geometric forms not by 2d shapes like when drawing figure from life.

    Golden rule: "Dont copy the model, analyze it!" - it means look after proportions and angles but dont just copy shapes without knowing the purpose of it.

    Instead learn to use base geometric forms like cube, ball, cylinder and cone - first draw lots of them from any possible angle you can imagine beware of right perspective.

    You must draw like a sculptor thinking in 3 dimensions not just in lines and 2d shapes! Draw through your figure like its made out of glass - just draw also the invisible parts to you.

    Hope this helped a bit (terrible english).

    Cheers!

    hey,
    life drawings are looking better ,i think the legs are a bit small on some,

    the hands are looking better,when doing the fingers , i nstead of just drawing them on ,build them up with little cylinders.

    portraits,youve improved ,bur the first ones ,the eyes are a strange shape , they should be more of an almond shape., the noses look a bit off , so do some nose and eye studies , and try and get the form right , such as the eye is a ball and the eyelids act like visors and close over this ..


    keep i up . and keep improving.james.

    libor - Thanks! Very in-depth and helpful critique, helping me get back to basics. Your english is fine

    guitarjames - Thank you for the crits, here are some studies you might like

    Got to the end of the day and realised i hadn't drawn at all today! Here are some facial part studies for james, thinking about 3-d-ness for libor, and from life for me Probably a half hour's worth.

    Yeah, gesture overload! It's good to see you focusing in a particular goal.
    Overall, they are looking good. My 2 cents: watch them hands and feet, you tend to draw them a bit too big. Also, pay particular attention to the wrists, they look more like a continuous bend than like a joint.
    Keep the pace man, I'll certainly harass you if you get lazy

    hey,
    yay studies,they are looking good and you have improved on them,but remeber to use what you learnt there in you finished portraits,etc

    Critn some eyes you have put wrinkles in but some you havent , i think wrinkels give a better sense of form,so add them.And the lips arent symetrical almost like one side is swolan..

    keep it up .james.

    fishspawn:

    you are doing well! I like the standing woman with redrawn right arm/hand - this is exactly what will lead you to success in drawing - it seems simple but its actually the best figure you drawn - builded from base blocks and totally lack the 2d flattnes which is right!

    if you want see fruits of this approach, check this and rest of this site

    Keep similar studies going...

    james - thanks, i agree about the wrist, it was rushed :/ I have done a lot of cross hatching, but not lately... maybe its time to dust off the ball point pen!

    libor - thanks, i was actually thinking of your advice when i did that one, will do more like it soon!

    Hyptosis - thanks, its fun, you should get back into it!


    Mo' figgas. We had a substitute teacher tonight and she actually had us do planned excercises. (my usual teacher is kind of relaxed) Here's some mass gestures, negative space - mass gestures, and a pulling the light tones out with eraser - 45 min.

    hey ,
    looking good ,improvment. The last ones torso is really well done,has a lot of form, but the arms and face let it down a bit you can draw hands because we can see in post166 but when you put them down in your other drawings they dont seem as good? ..

    keep it up .james.

    keep on going.james.
