Hiya Jabo! I really like your speedpaints, especially the last one! I wish I had Photoshop too :/
Looking at your work made me wonder, how much do you paint/draw from reference? It kind of looks to me like you're not learning as much as you could and you're pretty much just repeating and repeating all the knowledge you have right now.
But then again, who am I to tell... Right now I gotta go draw something I can't draw. *sinks back* d

I barely ever draw or paint from reference. I have a hard time concentrating when I do that and more candidly, I find it extremely boring. I'm getting started for university and the skill tests there focus on your ideas rather than your technical skills. So I'm searching for a more intuitive way to filling my brains than non-stop drawings of grannies in the park or nudes on a chair.
A whole bunch of people here in the forums seem to be so eager to learn that they completely forget that fun is the most successful motor. They see it more as a job than a passion. And that's what you see when you look at their art. As soon as I have to remind myself that I should have fun drawing, I'll drop the pencil never to draw again.
But you're right, I've been a little lazy the last couple of weeks, and it all looks the same right now. That's why I like switching between pencils and wacom. Gives me a fresh experience every time.
Checked out your sketchbook. Holy god you're 16? Not bad man, keep chasing those dreams! Love that guy. What I think is funny is that in this post of yours, I like the stuff from imagination most. Of course it's a little more sloppy and not anatomically correct, but the speech bubbles tell me that you had something in your mind when you drew them. That's what I wanted to say above, y'know?
PS: You're stuck with the hipbones, huh? Yeah, that's one of my major weaknesses, too.

I really love your enviros - they're very sketchy and undefined but lighting makes them almost photo-realistic in a way

thirdeye, even though I don't see where there's photorealism in my spastic strokes, thanks a lot!
Here's a new one, inspired by John Berkey and by looking at AndrewLey's sketchbook page by page. I love his style. No gradients, just planes. Of course, mine's not worthy. About an hour of experimenting.

Wow, great work! I love the colours and environments. Can you tell me how you painted those structures in post nr 63 and 70 ? Special brushes or texture overlays? Thanks and post more!

Your landscapes have some lovely lovely shapes in them!
Though I have to disagree with you on the comment you made in post #65, for there is nothing dull about life drawing. It may feel so in the beginning - new, "demanding" experiences often do. Just think about how many people start a new hobby just to quit it after a very short while! But after getting into the habit, it will be no more boring than drawing from the mind. Often even much more fascinating, considering how much more depth brought on by life experience that granny in the park has as opposed to a shiny mutant monster just thought up.
