    oma: right now, I am painting on canvas paper while I am learning, then will switch to illustration boards, panels and stretched canvas when I am more confident and know what I am doing.

    a couple of quick sketches

    Hehehehe, patience is a virtue my young padawan(sp?) :3 jk!!!

    Im glad your always posting ur sb.thanks for check up on me. as for your sketches. Your anatomy is forever improving.


    I do have a couple of questions.

    The oil painting, was it from memory or did you use referemce. Also the poses..

    I would love to see a finished peices.. Hell more colored pieices.
    In such a face pace you improved in great strides. Hope to see more stuff from u ^_^

    Oooh besides figure drawing, what else you would like to do. i mean do u have a certain goal in mind.

    Hey oldmeistro, i was taking my time but here is another reply to boost your working drive. I got a suggestion for shading. Try and take the time to get it right.

    in this piece, the form greatly suffers from inconsistent pencil lines. I mean you both hurt the piece itselve and hamper your ability to see the form.
    Check out the shading in the first post of this topic. It greatly helps the form. Perhaps it might help. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=54331

    also, drawing like this, with your pen on the board can help but personally i find it incredibly hard to see form with it. Ah well, just suggestions. I feel like yhou could greatly improved by loosening up. draw some old masters or just watch their aproach to line.

    Hya OldNoobie, thanks for the SB comment. Sorry I didn't return the favor sooner. You're well-endowed with ballsyness to be getting back to art at this stage. Love the 'doodles'. A nice break from the paintings . The third from the last pose in post #370 is by far the best...dynamic! Make something of it.

    White Rose: thanks the oil paintings are all from refs. The poses, some are from memory and some are from refs, most of the female ones are from refs but all the males are from memory (from years and years of copying comic book characters). I would like to see a finished piece too but I have no patience. I tend to somehow ruin every piece of work I do, some are minor so it isn't that noticable. Currently persuing a degree in CIS, something I should have done many years ago. But if that question pertains to art, I'm not sure yet, but so far I know I lack the imagination to be a concept artist though that may change.

    Banshax: thanks hehe, most of my doodles are messy I only make it a little clearer if I see something I like. It is like throwing out ideas until one looks interesting.

    Smokey186: thanks

    BludHund: thanks since I'm not working at the moment, I got a lot of free time and well, its either getting back into art or going out drinking and get in trouble Might as well try and educate myself further in something that I enjoyed doing when I was young.

    oma: thanks was having a bad morning, guess it wasn't a good idea to post while in a bad cranky mood.

    okie ... another quick sketch and an underpainting for another portrait (let see how bad I mess this one up this time)
    hair line needs to be lowered ... wonder if she is recognizable at this stage?

    Form is definitely improving. Work on your application and quality, especially in the paints. Good.

    Listing: thanks think I need to work on more than just my application and quality with paint. Color is a hard beast to tame for me

    oma: a lot of actresses have fat lips but you are right though, it is angelina jolie

    n1va: thanks while I like the way the wings are done, the figure itself is proportionally incorrect in some places. Probably won't try to fix it but perhaps redo it in the near future.

    an early morning doo ... this one started with just the head, then decided to add a little more and this is what I end up with .. not finished though

    and a head that really came out ugly

    The charcoal portraits on toned paper are your best work, in this style http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1162233702
    The graphite tends to get chaotic, especially on the temples here http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1163769013
    To clean it up keep the shadelines going in the same direction, keep them evenly spaced, and keep their value consistant. The muscular guy above is shaded better, each shadow area is marked in a more uniform way. Another little tip is that the pupil is recessed below the cornea(is that the name?), so the dark pupil ellipse would be closer to the left edge of the iris ellipse. Brushing up on perspective will be useful too.

    gigglepixie: hehe, yah but the stuff still looks like crap I gots to learn to be more patient.

    armando: thanks hehe my random doodles are usually very chaotic I don't think about proportions or rendering or style, I just throw in lines to fill up space. But thanks again for the tip about the eye

    okay .... since the last couple posts were basically all doodles, had to do a longer study with, what else, charcoal. Haven't done a charcoal study for a while, getting rusty.

    Solid first self portrait. The graphicness of the girl in post #331 shows clean value work. Nicely sperated. Your other pencil, on toned paper, portraits have a fresh quality to them, e.g. #160 #205, #333. #301- Nicely captured softness in her gaze and smile. Very nice. You captured the attitudes in all cases. What I like, especially, is your handling of the limited color with subtle hi-lights. Easy to overwork, but you keep it fresh. Stay with it.

    hey! thanks for your kind words in my sketchbook - like the stuff here a lot! especially those quick gestural studies show a lot of anatomical knowledge and a great sense for motion. lovely stuff!
    i also really enjoy the oil paintings - the charisma charpenter portrait is so well done, although a slightly cooler background color would maybe let the portrait "pop" a little more. great work!

    hey! your quick sketches have nice movement to them, perhaps you could try painting a few
    as for your portaits, you can tell who they all are which is great, but i think theres little bits which are too exaggerated such as angelinas chin in the last one

    also! just noticed my name in your sig =]

    Infinit: thanks

    AztcFireFlower: thanks I still got a long way to go, but slowly getting better

    stine: thanks just recently started painting, about 3-4 weeks ago. Started with acrylics which was a total disaster, but switched to oil and amazingly, it makes a huge difference in the technique I want to use. Now only if I can learn color theory

    Lefran: thanks I will try to paint full figures once I feel that I have good control over the rendering. Though I think what I will probably do is increase the view slowly so that I don't overwhelm myself with the whole figure at once

    Hehe, being able to recognize who the person is in the portrait is always a good thing A little exageration is good, most portraits have some exageration in them, but if it really that noticable or overly done, it isn't good, well unless it is a caricature.

    As for the sig, I can remove it if you perfer it not being there

    oma: thanks the whites was done using white charcoal the same way as the dark. Gradually with each layer blended with a stump. But have to be careful, it reflects light and can be over worked (and I know, done it many times).

    --------------------------------

    here are some doodles and a quick charcoal sketch
