    This is a zhaoming Wu copy I'm trying to do.


    Halfway through it I decided to check if the alignment was spot on...
    the nose is very much bigger in mine and all the blue are the mistakes...


    Another progress shot of a grissaille I am doing almost finished


    Also lined them up in PS, the one I made is absoulutely smaller.


    Here was the corrections I made almost finished...maybe another half a day or so....


    Trying to do another one...



    I think my main problem is jumping ahead to details when I'm clearly not in the clear with the outline, I always knew that
    but I think the habit is too hard too break.

    I'm also doing Bargue copies....
    Hopefully that will be the solution in my problems
    I've seen people who do those kind of things that ends up with marvelous results.

    And little things like extra protrutions in the nose is absolutely no-no in real life.

    The Gnoll- Thanks, sorry I don't have the bigger version. And it's a 1hr.crap...hehe
    I think why it won because it's just abstract and the viewer is involved in thinking
    what would be cool in the redesign. There's a redesign I like that didn't win though.
    Chermilla-Haha, and you are a rat! Seriously need too take out that I'm a cat lover I posted above
    because it's messing up my "macho" image. Thanks!
    Haxxxor- Thanks man, I didn't like it because I can't brush out the mistakes I made...
    Not so evident here...but I used alcohol as solvent to wet the charcoal but it's too deeply inbeded
    in the paper, even I tried to sand paper it. But I'm thinking of finishing it so I can have something
    in my portfolio when I apply for LAAFA or ARA in the fuuuuttttuuuurrreeeee! (Hey,I can dream, can I?)
    Patdzon-Thanks man! I'm not very much qualified to teach hehe. I'm still kind of a hack...eeep!
    Hope to see you soon!
    Blade-14- My previous writer would laugh if he hears that! Pro....not gonna be one for sometime because
    I'm focusing on my studies for now.
    Matsign-Thanks partner! Yeah, doing those life drawings are a pain if you really want to be an illustrator...
    Didn't really did those before until now, but I can tell you is it helps a huge deal when I'm applying it on
    my comics and illo stuff!
    Moai-Always thanks for the support. I have some monster drawings inspired by your thread.:0
    But I'm going back and forth to digital and traditional, I hope I can finish it.
    And I will remember you on edges, Don't worry!
    OldNoob-Thanks! Hope I can update this thing everytime. But I'm doing detailed stuff and trying to juggle digital,
    Just trying to absorb evrything...
    Patdzon- It's blurry because I resized it too small, and then resized it to a bigger version.
    Hope I can finish it for my portfolio.
    Trollfar- Thanks for the encouragement!

    Good to see you posting some more of your work.
    All your portrait work is very well done.
    Great that you are serious in your studies. The quality in your work is noticeable. Keep on doing what you're doing.

    Aztc- Thanks! Coming from you...I'm after your skill level woman;P

    Although I think I can copy those gradations, I like the way you and some of the guys can do with so little strokes. Envy that....all in the planes?
    Plus I tried using color....Madre de dios! Que horor!

    Thanks a ton!

    nice copy of Zhaoming Wu's drawing. I wish I was able to take his class back then.

    Oh..I'm not sure if we could meet Sunday because we have a family lunch. I'll see. I also need to know if you're cell phone is working so that I could contact you easily.

    Very nice portraits! The first one is especially beautiful; the planes are clear, yet subtle. The last one's pretty creepy, but good. Her eyes aren't symmetrical, but that might have been purposeful.
    And one last crit: update more often!

    60%% done..put 3 hrs. onto it last night..I think that's pretty slow, though..

    unfished fish vehicle design...in wrong perspective..

    OOOOLLLLDDDDD!!!!


    a skull study

    From a Walter-foster book...
    trying to do color mixes, the 2 are blanks because i messed it up...
    it says a speck of white, and don't know how much is that.


    Old Noob- Thanks! I hope to win again...hehe, but not my primary concern because it's actually filling up my portfolio doing draw-offs.

    Nice arm studies. That's what I've been studying for a while now using Bridgman's book. The arm can be quite tricky especially around the forearm with all them flexors and extensors, hehe.

    Is there an english version of Bammes' book?

    Hey man, just came across your sketchbook. Really love your stuff, especially your comic character drawings. Those are top notch, that I can imagine seeing those in actual comics. You are pretty good at rendering realism. Can't wait to see the one in post #69 done. Keep it up!

    Thanks Guys..I'll reply later...but some "art"..

    Some studies from Aztc,Geist,Fowkes and Chen....
    I'll copy their drawings this week...I know now whats the problem because I'd been copying some Aztec and Chen before but wasn't getting the results..
    It's the paper...hehe...It must be rough or newsprint..I was using smoother ones before and just baffling why I wasn't anywhere near their results...
    Just some quick copies primarilly on construction...Reilly's method rock! (someone must do a dvd on this!)





    jino barclay studies....I don't think I learned what I did here..maybe some rendering...but not the same ones I'd get from Bammes or Rielly..




    Thought I'd share...

    some wips...I don't even know anymore..hehe.


    She needs refinement and a kick ass pattern....(moai! come baaack!!)

    Cool work. Those are pretty damn good layouts on the top pieces, very few mistakes. And you can't go wrong with hentai studies.

    She needs refinement and a kick ass pattern....(moai! come baaack!!)
    Ah, you crack me up. I recently got a book on reptiles and amphibians and have been drawing inspiration from that for my creature patters. Here are some critters with interesting patterns for you to do an image search on. I'm including the scientific names also, in case the normal name doesn't bring results.
    Indian roofed turtle (kachuga tecta)
    Painted terrapin (callagur borneoensis)
    Bell's hing-back tortoise (kinixis belliana)
    Radiated tortoise (geochelone radiata)
    South american red-footed tortoise (geochelone carbonaria)
    Ocellated mastigure (uromastix sinaitus)
    Common agama (agama agama)
    various forest dragon species (just look up "forest dragon")
    indo-chinese forest lizard (calotes mystaceus)
    other forest lizards (genus calotes)
    tokashiki gecko (goniurosaurus kuroiwae)
    thomas's sticky-toed gecko (naultinus elegans)
    gray's bow-fingered gecko (cyrtodactylus pulchellus)
    juniper skink (ablepharus kitaibelii)
    milo's wall lizard (podarcis milensis)
    asian grass lizard (takydromus sexlineatus)
    sawtail lizard (holaspis guentheri)
    green calango (kentropyx calcarata)
    desert monitor (varanus griseus)
    black-headed python (aspidities melanocephalus)
    various milk snake and coral snake species
    ring-neck snake (diadolphis punctatus)
    spitting cobra (naja nigricollis)
    gaboon viper ( bitis gabonica)

    That should be enough for some inspiration. I apologize for any misspellings, or if any of these creatures are boring-looking (I was looking at illustrations, not photos). Aside from a kick-ass pattern, what your raptress also needs is some values that better define her form and that separate her more from the background.
    Your anatomy studies are flippin' awesome!

    I love how your pushing your self in all areas form, planes, construction, color, rendering. This is how you learn. I don't feel your digitals are as strong as the pencil renders but it will come with time. Keep pushing your self and your limits.

    Crappy pics!!!!



    pat-Thanks dude! Meet you on Monday for sketching fun...hehe
    the bammes arms are very great to study, I have to try me some Bridgeman, though.
    armaldon-Thanks man, would definitely want to conquer comics since it was the stuff that wanted me to be an artist in the first place.;P
    OldNoobie-Thanks, I don't think I'd finish that and move on because I scanned it in and reworked it in ps with ghastly results..meh
    Oma-thanksthanksthanks
    asoir-same to you, man..your stuff is a breath of freash air!
    NKristian-Oy! Di ka naman pumupunta sa sketchmeet eh, pero baka busy ka lang dun sa entry mo...anung nanyari? Sa May pa ang awarding diba?
    Callops-Oh yeah, Thanks for everyone who gave me some stars, It helps me thinking that I'm doing something right and on the right track Thanks Callops, Cool kendo pics btw...
    @work-Cool man, I like your sb too...
    Ephemeral- Cool that you are back!! Plus with a vengence with the recent posts! Thanks for the heads up...I think I originally had a bigger feet in the pencil sketch, But I viewed the David Kretnz gnomon vid and he said dinos have tiny feet so I changed them, plus I think the pose should have a straightened tail because I think that acts as counter balance too...Thanks!
    OldNoob-Thanks again for the support! Your thread is always alive and in the first page hehe...
    Orozco-Thanks! You have a top notch sketchbook, Hope you could teach me some of the stuff esp your pencil skills!
    Moai-DUUDEEE!!! That's more than I'm asking for, Thanks buddy, I kinda do some digitals to see if I can transfer some knowledge I gained returning to traditionals everytime I can...It's obvious that I need more mileage in painting, I hope to get there soon...Good Luck in making it through the CA atelier next year!!!
    Wasker- Thanks, yeah that was some study for an add in the employment section...Thanks! But I think it's weird for me to draw that way..
    Odd because I've always been a perv..hehe
    seth1-Glad you sensed that, I not really good digitaly in fact a lot of time I fake it...ugh...Hopefully the day will come that all the skills I want to learn is in the bag.
