    JTHO's sketchbook // Updated DEC27

    Hello CAers

    I've been a big fan of this place for a bit, so much inspirational work and talent here. I've been scared to post much because the quality of work here is so high, but I finally got around to uploading a bunch of stuff so I think I have enough to make a decent first post. Please let me know what you think, I'm serious about improving.

    (My initial post's dump has been tidied up and merged with the second post so I can change my thumbnail easier)

    really impressed with your shading. the first creature's hind legs, in the picture from the back, seems a little flat though, I cant see the muscles as well as you've shown them in the very first picture. Can tell you've been working on your hand studies, personally I like your pencil sketches better than the digi one. Another picture that I really like is the one of the boy (can just see his face), I think you've captured his emotion very well. On the picture of the man next to that with the bands around his face I really like the way you've shaded his torso. Nice stuff, keep pushing.

    Good head and hand studies. Push the contrast on those new hand studies you put up a little bit more. Proportion on the full figures could be worked on. Shading is very nice as well. I would love to see more. Its a good mixture of imaginative work and study. I really like the new Ocupus man with the staff. good deal.

    Good stuf you got going on here, your proportions are great and your creatures are cool, nice textures and colors... wtf can I crit? I'm not really sure, your colored pieces which are most finished are almost there, something is missing and I can't tell what it is though...

    Some more studies from the past couple days and a character. Seems like all the cool kids are doing speedpaints so I've started doing one a day on top of my daily regimen. I'd never done one before so I'm sort of flying blind, but they were fun and felt like good exercise.

    As always, please leave feedback~

    Loving the character poses, and those creatures look just plain awsome. It`s easy to see you have a big imagination, and the shading is impressive

    Would be nice to see some muscle studies

    nice studies, and your rendering is definitely getting there. Only thing I'd suggest working on a little more is your perspective. Oh and keep it up, more please, etc etc

    hey whats up. That picture of the womans face about 3 pictures down is looking really nice. i really like your use of hatching in it; Actually, most of your rendering of faces is quite well done. Your characters, however, look a little bit stiff. Pay a little more attention to what the shoulders and hips do to support and balance the weight of the body maybe. It looks like your drawing from life though, so you probably are well on the way of getting that. anyway, hope that helps. keep it up man.

    Smokey: Thanks, I've actually been doing some more loomis muscle studies in my sketchbook!

    Ferg: Agreed about my perspective, it's something I should consider more in my work, thanks for the comment.

    ArtZealot: Thanks for the comment, I've been trying to do lots of study from ref and life gesture studies lately to help my sense of overall posture and balance, hopefully I can add a little more zest to my figures when these pay off.

    Been busy lately , but I managed to knock out a teen challenge thunderdome entry. I've got some pencil stuffs to scan when I get home as well. As always, feedback encouraged

    I believe http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1164150513

    is the piece with most punch from what you have posted.

    Draw and post more

    Also think about what feelings you want a certain piece to convey. Always try and think about the feelings .

    Cheers.

    Will appreciate critique anywhere, anytime .

    There's a little staging problem in the horned monster picture (the first of the latest four), the structure near the elbow of his right arm seems a bit like some growth from his arm (bet it's something else), wud love to see it staged properly.

    Keep them coming! Nice Artworks!!!

    yeah i agree the new red one is very nice. I'd like to see you continue working on that one! Once again nice work on the hand studies. That last one is pretty muddled and im not sure about the color sceme, for some reason i feel the fire/energy/smoke in the mouth/door and the fire/energy/smoke coming out of the top should be the same. keep going!

    There is a great variety of mediums and subjects; Imaginative and studies in here. Keep posting as much as you can. Firstly it means that you are working a lot, which leads to improvement. Also it will help you get more comments. The more you post, the more your sb will be near the top of the list, the area where most people browse. Be patient, sometimes it takes a while to get comments in your sketch book. It took me a long time to get more than one comment per art dump. The best way to get people into your sketch book is to go out and post in other people's sketch books. I don't just mean post once and then hope that they start posting in yours on a regular basis. I mean find some people who's art you really appreciate, and regularly comment on their art. Eventually they are going to visit yours and start posting in it. All that I am saying is spoken from experience so just know that you are not the only one who has been there.

    Another good thing about posting in other's sb's on a regular basis is that having the link to your sb in your signature makes it easier for people to see you, think you might be interesting, and visit your sb regardless as to where it is on the list.

    I hope this has been helpful

    Keep posting, I'll see you around

    For a long time I've been harboring a dark secret. I can't draw women for shit, so I've decided that I'm going to focus on eradicating this gap in my skillset head on. I did a quick full-body female just to take stock of how awful my perceptions of the female form were and what needed most work, and then set out on finding tons of reference from loomis and another figure drawing book I have.

    Bonus digital scribble I did at 5 AM in sleeplessness.

    Daraf: Thanks for the comment! The hand studies are exhausting practice, but my goal is to do at least one every day so that I can turn one of my weaknesses into a strength over time.

    Normally I like to keep my weekly challenge thingies secret until they're done, but I felt I could benefit from some feedback, given my color-retardedness.

    Here's the early progress, subject is the horseman of the apocalypse who represents war.

    nice sketchbook! the last one seems like its coming along nice, cool idea.
    not much to comment,I like your linework, studies, and the painting is also coming along.

    just remember o scale the image up double size, so when your painting all the details so youl be painting in 100% scale, then when finnished you scale back to original , this is always good since you wont be needing to overdraw some lines 100 times before it looks good. you might be doing this, but if not you should try it out, as soon as you feel the details are getting hard to draw scale up..
    one more thing, with this is that if you start detailing to soon , and when you zoom out the thing you detailed is totaly out of proportion. so remember to go step by step.

    Nice to see you tackle the female anatomy. It is important for us as artist to work on our weaknesses.
