Hey Cavematty I've really enjoyed looking through your sketchbook. You are making great progress and I really like your fluid lines in your life drawings. Also love your summer vacation sketchbook, I'm always trying to do the same but the weather seems to always put paid to my efforts! Great to see what you can do though.
Just a bit of a jam tonight. Gotta keep at it
Edit: Hmm. Soon as you post, you see the weirdness... something weird with the way he's holding the bow, Like it intersects his raised knee. And his front arm is holding it wrong. Either that or the bowstring is caught in his armpit. Ha. Fail. Will have to keep at this one... but here it is anyway, in all it's gammy-ness. It was good fun.

Random to see you on here again!
Yeah that arm is long thanks for the input.
Here's a little scribble, based on a cool little everyday composition I saw when out running a few days ago. Colour to come.

WOOP! Heya Law.
Still checking your subs? Or just random coincidence
Yeah, thought it would be good to put the sketchy stuff out somewheres again. Only put more finished-ey stuff on the blog and webby these days. This just makes me think more about going somewhere with my sketches.
Here are some watercolours I did during a recent trip through Asia. Didn't do nearly as much drawing and painting as I hoped. Took a million photos and kept a good written journal though. So will do some 'inspired-by' pics at some point.
The above are (in the order they appear):
View from Peng Chau Island in Hong Kong;
Temple in Tongli, near Shanghai, China;
Karst in Halong Bay, Vietnam;
'The Outside Inn', near Yanghsuo, Guilin, Southern China;
and finally a quick sketch of the river near the base of Huangshan, Anhui, China.
Only have digital snaps and the lappy screen to work from at the moment, so not sure how accurate these colours are, but will have to do for now

Dear Mr. Rogers, I looked at your portfolio and GD!!!! Very impressed. Love the sequentials you had and loved the Child illustration with the lego men!
Thanks for the encouragement! Getting some momentum up again. Feels fantastic
I find watercolour somewhat difficult too - but it's so practical and portable that I tough it out I always take a tube of white goache with me for painting opaquely if I get myself in trouble. Of course using that can make things worse unless I'm very sparing with it, and use it only at the end. It's great to have the option though. Good for problem solving, but also just gives more options. Always feel like a beginner with the medium though. Guess thats just the nature of it. I kinda feel like that will never go away
Here are some colour / lighting studies for the above thumbnails. I'm liking the bottom two the best - the high/low angle just adds a bit more dimension to them I think. Planning to push each of them a step further before making the call on which one to detail up fully.
Waaah i so love your watercolour, and the fact that you do foliage like this is even more awesome to me. Really nice.
I always find watercolours difficult, and if you still find them difficult at your level, what can i say..guess you need a lot of practice.
Post #245 is really lovely, really nice mood and colour pallet.
Mind me asking, so you paint with the laptop outside? Don't you think it interferes with the final result?
hey you have a great sb here, those watercolors are awesome!! and all in all your way of showing light and form has improved immensely kepp up this pace and keep posting !
Hey Law, it's just 2D, and pretty quick. But I'm glad I could confuse you! Been thinking about perspective and construction a bit lately. I feel like I've still got o-so much to learn. I do still dabble in maya pretty regularly though, so it's not really out of the question.
Today - Christmas Wishes! Thanks CA and all those who have stopped by my sketchbook. Best wishes for 2013 - the year of the water snake. May it be a happy and productive year with lots of artistic growth
Gasp! The ice cave is truly stunning! What did you use to make this piece? (sorry if I missed the info elsewhere in this thread)
