    thanks seedling


    here is my first attempt at a speed painted person - it looks nothing like the model though..oi! oh well, another day I'll get it. and yes I know, the eyes are wonky. thats what I get for not being careful when I draw out the face

    Hey, i really like this second portrait! Also liked the deer a lot.

    I don´t know the product´s name in english, but there are some acrylics medium that will give you a litle more time to mix and apply your paints than just water. You can also use some kind of temperas, like gouache (opaque watercolor...). It has some things that relates to the acrilycs and some that relates to oils in the way to use then. I really enjoy these! Well, i just realized you might have to change your thread name tought, hehe...

    Keep it up! You´re doing a great job so far!

    I felt like drawing little pen doodles today - dont know why. So I just grabbed my rain forest photography book and went at. I have no clue where these are going..maybe its practice before I start drawing landscapes from real life - havent quite done that before. And then I can paint the landscapes..woot!

    yes I am horrible with pen

    hi, cant see anything I dont like here. I really like the colors you pick/mix, esspecially for your mutant Kitties!!

    Is there anyway in perticular you pick your colors or do you just go with the flow?

    Also I had an idea that might help you speed paint, maybe do 2-3 paintings at once. Line em up and jump from one to the next (use indiviual brushes for each maybe?), that way you could get 2-3 done in the same time? Just a thought really.

    Keep doing what your doing with colors and you will always get a good comment from me.

    nice work!

    I like what you've got going on. It's nice to see some traditional media still being used once in a while. Also Wyoming, my home state is full of antelope, that one makes me homesick! VERY NICE!!! Thanks for stopping by my SB.

    thanks for the comments! I just go with the flow when I pick colors, though I have found I almost never use saturated colors - my mutant kitty painting was a poor attempt at that, and even then its very colorful compared to how really saturated those cats really were.

    sorry for not posting anything for a while o.o; I kept getting frustrated and there were so many things I wanted to do and I wasnt sure where to begin. I kept starting and never finishing drawings, paintings or sketches! I sorta want to continue practice painting with my acrylics, but at the same time I wanted to work on my portfolio for the video game industry - as well as make some insect inspired paintings. I'm sorta all over the place!

    I'll try working on more than one painting at a time, hopefully it will help

    anyhoot, here are two watercolor sketches of insects. I'm planning on making a couple more before using them as reference for a larger acrylic painting.

    Kick ass Watercolors

    Those last water colors kick ass. I know what you mean about being all over the place. I don't know if I want to work digital one minute, paint the next or sculpt. You have be to versatile to get your foot in the door it feels like. Great Stuff!!

    The insects are cool. I really like the line wieght of the first (the flea?), were the lines done with a brush?

    I don't mind looking at unfinished stuff, if you dont want to post it here why not make a work in progress sketchbook? Or just post em here but really small so people can't critise the hell outer ya.

    I really like your insects, would love to see a page of thumbnails focusing only on the large shapes and bulks of your insect subjects- esspecially if done in water color!!!

    Great stuff, the insects look a little flat, try pushing the values more and don't rely so much on the line art. The portrait are nice but you seem to enlarge the eyes, especially in the second one, her right (our left) eye is bigger then the left and placed lower as well.

    I just love the jungle line arts, the only one that seems a little stiff is the "SWAMP 01" I'd suggest loosening up a little and try not to simplify to much. It looks like you basically decided on three different surfaces and systematically placed them, I'd love to see you do the whole thing as if you didn't see any patterns or shapes, just let the lines describe the whole scene and mood rather then the individual objects. And you know your not horrible with a pen, lose the attitude and start playing around.

    Overall I'd love to see you experimenting more and try being loser and less restrictive with your work, have fun, it's a sketchbook, not a gallery

    thanks for the advice! fun, yes. I get really strict on myself and then I feel I'm not strict enough! heres something different today, I wanna paint my favorite characters but I am never happy with their faces. so here are some random head studies and horribly drawn Tetsuo's

    I think I'll draw Kaneda tomorow..and insects!
