    Cool Jason needs improvement so beat his ass with critiques

    *** TINY SCANNER ALERT ***


    Well, been here for what.... 6 months? high time for a sketchbook. I know what you're thinking though;

    "Why now, Rhine?"

    Well, I'm extremely frustrated with my art. I create lifeless poses and nothing I create looks realistic. Focussing on a skecthbook will help me forget about goblin sketches and badly painted characters that I normally deal with, all the while helping me get some much-needed practice in.

    My first little batch is just simple hand crap. For some extremely odd reason, typing 'hand' or 'foot' into google will yeild a usable picture every 5 pages or so. C'est la vie I suppose.

    Well, went up to camp, so I had a great opportunity to get some sketching in. First is an incomplete pic of the kitchen, next is a view of Campbell Island. Both are pretty sketchy.

    After those is the 'muffin TOSSING man' and a personal project.

    Hey man,

    Thanks for your feedback on my comics. I will take your advice into account, although I have studied anatomy for many years now. (I'll try to get some of my realistic work and non comic work up) When I draw realistically I rarely mess around with line variation and thickness and human porportion. I prefer not to simplify my body parts in my comics, not out of lack of knowledge of body structure, but mostly for the odd appearence, stances, and shapes that may come about with contour and partially blind contour line drawing. Thanks again for the feedback, hope this doesnt sound like an excuse, just my side of it.

    All the best
    Ryan

    No I know what you mean, there is a wackyness that can be attained in doing that. The problem is is that it seems like some parts are too wacky while others aren't. I see it as a contrast of styles within each pic that fails to bring everything together. All it needs is some tender love and work is all

    Sciboy, that's totally tits! Bookmarked.

    Long time. Maybe I should post all my stuff in here, but I feel like it would get less attention (and less help) than if it was placed in WIP.

    Anyways, a pencil drawing of a Loki bust that I found online. Can't remember the original sculptor.

    If you need photos, http://www.sxc.hu is generally a good place to go.

    It looks like you are improving Rhinville. I see when you take the time you can produce some very ncie work . ( loki ).
    I hope to see more of those from you. It's a shame your class isn't doing nude figure drawing, but i'm sure you can go to some after work/school lessons, somewhere else in town, for a small amount.

    Hey Rhineville, youre showing improvement in your figures and your keeping your proportions nicely measured.
    I think that what would really push your figures is some intense study of the skeleton and how the muscles attach to it. I've been studying that recently and its really helped.

    That's one thing that I havn't done. I've done le skelete and figures, but never a mucle/skeleton mix. I just bought 'an atlas of anatomy for artists' (a GREAT book btw) and I think it'll come in quite handy in that regard

    Good! This new tonal stuff is good. Keep at it, studying the face is hard but a worthy cause and is definately an important part to concentrate on. Remember that sometimes a lot of quick sketches can be of more worth than one long-ass study that is really just an excercise in perseverance. Keep goin Jase. Jase

    Just one thing with that raptor, you might wanna darken shadows under his chin and thicken the contour of his jaws. The added background looks nice btw.

    Ah I see what you mean about the chin, but the particular ref I had had it's jaw in a weird, concave manner. I was reluctant to draw it as I saw it, but decided to try it out. I guess it does look too weird

    EDIT: Did you mean the stroke width of the jawLINE or did you mean the actual structure of the jaw?

    Very good work!
    I think that the figures you draw are stronger than the faces however.
    I like your shading in the dinosaur picture - but the background could do with a bit more detail - maybe some stronger shading, more contrast between light/dark, or just a bit more texture. It just feels to me that it lacks a certain something that the dinosaur has!

    Keep working on anatomy/proportion and draw from life as much as possible. I'm looking forward to your progress.

    Thanks all. Cerbercus, that was actually my intent. I really wanted the dino to pop forward, so I thought having him in great contrast while making the BG in somewhat lacking contrast and darker overall would help achieve that

    Hey Rineville,

    Nice work with the paintings! The colours are nice and they have a strong feel to them but I think you've used too big a brush in some parts and it makes the image look blocky and somewhat flat.

    Thanks Cerb, this was done extrmely quickly and without enthusiasm (it was homework, what can I say) so I wasn't to concerned with it. turned out better than I thought though.

    I don't think I'll be able to update for a few days, homework it kicking me in the crotch right now. I will have all my stuff for human body week though, even if it all comes next moday

    Hehe, Rhineville, damn school eh. That dinosaur one is really nice, maybe needed more value on the skin though. Just remember to keep the imagination going and don't be afraid to let yourself doodle and express some thoughts!

    Hey
    Nice sketches! Although the legs of the skeleton look a bit short... and the skull looks somewhat squashed - not wide enough for it's height.
    But keep trying though! This anatomy stuff is hard to get right!
