    an update

    I have been meaning to make this post for a while. I moved the whole sketchbook journey over to Blogger some time back because it became easier keeping friends and family updated that way (not everyone is familiar with a forum layout).

    So in the interest of continuity for anyone interested, the last post of this thread continues at the beginning here - ypyeoh.blogspot.com

    Signing off this thread for good, thanks for the good times and take care. Have some recent art for good measure!

    Anatomy-wise, I'm working at erasing the comicbook representations in my head and trying to see the shapes as they are. Some recent sketches:

    These past 2 weeks I've been having some problems hitting the right values. I think it's because I turned of my brain when doing studies from ref, since I don't need to figure how the values go as the form turns. It's affecting my painting from imagination... so it's back to excercises.

    Any input on these cubes would help a lot. Ignore the Jawas, I don't really know why they're there...

    EDIT: I should note that as contsruction and perspectives weren't the prupose of this study, so they are very wrong indeed (I do need to work on those too!). Thanks blue... lightning reply!

    40 min study, working on better blocking by avoiding details. More of the slope on the right should be in the light, and maybe not enough contrast between shadow/lit.

    an update

    And today's sketches... some tiny improvement when I concentrate hard on the waist area (middle sketch).

    Meat, i see you are using a specific rough brush in a few pieces. Might i pry into what brush it is? I've actually been trying to make a brush in painter which looks a lot like that.

    The speedpainter are killer (ive envied them before in the speedpainting thread) and its good that your doing studies to tackle your weakness' its the right way to go.

    Thanks for visiting everyone, will work harder to get you more goodies

    Blue> I have two main brushes I use for that rough look... both are tweaked PS default brushes. PM me your email add and I can hook you up

    Today was a 3D day... working on hair dynamics. Don't know if these belong in sketchbook or not:

    amazing leap from 2005 to now.. reminds me of how much i've improved in just a few months. love the speedpaints.. feels like you should use a few less lines in your figure sketches though.

    anyway! have fun and keep it up..

    britt: thanks, will do

    tie: Yes, good idea on the less lines. My problem is I've been working in digital so long that using the lasso to resize and move shapes around means I don't draw it right the first time... doesn't help for traditional. Thanks!

    oma: Lol. I'll make you a poster when I finish her


    OK, here's todays session, trying to sketch with less lines. Still messy...

    Heya!

    Your pen/cils does need some work. Seems like you're hatching your way through lines which gives a pretty scribbly result. Try using some longer strokes.
    Perspective and poses are pretty interesting though :]

    Your digitals are very good, but that 3d piece is amazing!
    Is it all you or did you borrow or use other people's work for it?
    I'm pretty impressed

    .peace

    studie figures and anatomy as main, I'd say. Your paintings and environments looks fantastic, combined with cool characters, they will be unstoppable.

    Keep it up!

    Hey Meatsworthy did you do these gestures from your mind or from reference? I guess you made 'em up, I like them. Maybe you could do some male gestures too.
    Like I said, great speed paintings, can't wait till I get at your skill level
    Woke up this morning, found out my signature was gone..

    hey, was browsing through the speed painting thread and saw some of your pieces; must say those are AMAZING! haha seriously, great work man, your improvement is inspiring. I like the style you have in your pen sketches, and you seem to have a pretty nice understanding of anatomy. beautiful 3d head as well, the facial features/expressions look wonderful. keep it up man, gonna make sure I watch this book

    great speed painting and AMAZING 3d work, man..... taking a look at this kind of works I have severe doubts about my own artwork. I feel like an ant.

    I came over here from looking at your work in the Speed Painting Thread. Your figure studies are looking great too, I will be hanging around here more often!

    Thanks for the support everyone

    MorteM: Good suggestion... will try with some longer strokes. I just got myself a bunch of pencils... we'll see how that goes. That 3D is all me... actually I feel more confident in 3D, but that is slowly changing.

    Tigermilk: Thank you. Figures are definately my biggest weakpoint, the others being perspective and also concepts (lack of richness particularly). These all need work, so I don't know about that unstoppable bit...

    Coen: Both from imagination and from ref, but more are from imagination. The better looking ones are from ref... meaning I need to work more with ref. Will get to work on males... good idea to mix it up.

    Blue: Ah well. Maybe the theory behind them will help. One is a square sponge-like brush tip that follows stroke direction. The other is a tiny leaf-shaped tip with high scatter and also follows stroke direction.

    Onir: Much thanks

    Leidasim: Don't feel that way... just look at my early speedpaint, horrible! Do you have a sketchbook? We can all improve together.

    iolarnula: Thanks... I love that thread, it teaches me so much. Missing Viag's stuff a little though, haha.


    Ok, here's todays speedie I did to warm up before getting deep into technical 3D stuff (agh). Just need to practice because I tend to forget how to paint once in a while:

    an update

    I'm also trying to refine my work process so it's more disciplined and consistent. Here's a look:

    miguelslo: Thank you, but that's not quite accurate!

    Dile: Hey, make sure you tell me which is the 10% that isn't so I can work on it .

    Asoir: Thanks. Actually, the speedpaintings take about 2 - 3 hours each, haha. Might be 2 - 3 days for full blown .


    Ok, some sketches before bed. Trying out pencils instead, with the helpful hints from earlier. Getting cleaner... but shouldn't have tried rendering. It was so bad until I pretended I was in photoshop

  • haha, acctually the only "non good results" are where I can see that you
    havent spended any time at all! you know, areast that is leavedd for non-details.. it helps the composition sometimes, sometimes not but
    over all your lighting skills are soooooo awsome!

    The latest figures looking way good, nice perspectives on that last one!
    cool < - > relaxed poses as well Keep it up!
