    Thanks for the advice aussie. I forgot completely about this study. Why do I have to add the desaturated warm hues if I may ask?

    Ahhh i just read what i typed and can understand how i confused you by desaturated i meant more saturated then your current hues in the side facing the sun but still very unsaturated compared to the rest of the painting. ahh crap its hard to put into words.


    This might help i found your reference. and although the shadows on the reference are quite warm i would probably make them cool for contrast reasons.Your study is more saturated at the highlight and the drops in saturation or Chroma towards the shadow side which is the reverse of what it should do in reality and it is also made up of all warm hues.


    eek i hope i made a little bit of sense this time.

    Oh I understand your point. I remember reading that in one of the Loomis books a while back. I'll have to double check the saturation of the light and shadow because it's supposed to be the reversed like you said. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Thanks! I'll have a look at your stuff soon.

    Hey aussie I went back to check that saturation thing and I realized that the shadow is more saturated because of the brown color reflected from underneath it. So I think I was on the right track.

    yea dude i wasn't talking about the saturation of the shadow side just the lit side the shadow side is most definetley more saturated. I will try to be more specific with the advice i give in the future because otherwise i will probably do more harm then good . sorry mate.

    Don't worry man I get your point.

    I finally have time to work on some personal stuff. Here are some studies/sketches I did this week, some paintings to test my new tablet and a illustration for the poster of the final presentation of our chick game. Leave your comments please.

    Nice one its great you finally got tablet now i expect shiploads of paintings!!!!.Great job on the Dag in your last pencil good gradiation of values pushing the posterior section further back,I love the blocky bridgeman figure above it too. your page of small sketches is exactly what i have to do myself i tend to go way too big, Something i would like see you do is the opposite of what you want me to do, try some loose sketching with the side of your pencil mate i think you might like it and be surprised with some of the results, all your sketches even thou they are studies feel very tight and need some life brought into them, just an idea as you probably prefer it tighter for modeling anyway later keep up effort as usual..

    PS.. that chicken is nutz!!! heh you cant help but look back and forth between that chickens eyes and the guys eyes with physco music playing over in your head.

    Thanks man I'm glad you like them. I did do sketches with the side of the pencil in the past but I dropped that a while ago. Now I'm using a 2b pencil which is harder to get very dark tones with in comparison to the wax pencils I usually use. I think using the side would make that even harder. I just prefer a tighter shading over a soft one. I'll just have to start doing a lot of gesture drawings again to give more life to my drawigns and sketches. Thanks for pointing that out. I put a lot of effort into the interaction of the chick with the guy. My colors ended up a little muddy, but I still learned a lot doing this painting.

    Wow, amazing sketches.
    I really dig your robotic warrior type work.
    I also find the Shadow of Colossus concept to be fresh too, love that game.

    Nintendo_zombie and beastathon: Thanks I'm glad you like my work

    Here are some sketches and studies from this week. The vehicle is a refined version of the previous one. It's damn hard to avoid making errors in these constructions, but I think it looks decent. Maybe I pushed the 3 point too much but it was to late when I noticed that. Anyway, I'll continue working on it digitally and then maybe do a back view. Enjoy and leave your comments.

    Thanks for the encouragement! You're right my painting is lacking compared to my drawings. I'm feeling kinda lost when it comes to painting. Just have to work harder I guess.

    Thanks Okki. I try to study a variety of styles and in the end I hope to combine them into something cool. Don't you have a sketchbook?

    cool i would love to see you do some good old battle mech's with those perspective skills you got, i look into all those folds myself a while ago i and i will have to do it again but there something about the way Hogarth draw folds that just make its feel really fake, maybe try to take more of a plane approach rather then those strange cylindrical tubes curving around the form good too see more of you pencils your general head proportions could use some review too.
    I see you have a similar problem as me when drawing cars, i cant get the depth/width of the car to look correct its around 3 wheels wide but its a matter of experience i guess when it comes too judging how much foreshortening to use depending on the perspective.. O and the heavy armored vehicle is killer really clean lines and 3 point perspective! someone was feeling like a challenge aye!?? you should pop it into photoshop and render the hell out of it =). keep up the work mate.laterz.

    Thanks for the tips. The fold studies are from vilppu not from hogarth. I emphasized the cylinders to remind myself to see them as forms not as lines. Normally I prefer the planar approach too but vilppu's cylindrical approach looks very realistic so I decided to study that more. It will require a couple off passes to get it right so go give it a second pass.
    As for the cars, they are 3 wheels wide if you look closer you can see the construction. Maybe they look crappy because I never actually study cars. Let's see what I can do with the vehicle in photoshop. Thanks for the crits friend!

    Ahh i can see the construction now, my bad the degree looks good actually maybe its just the rest of the proportions that are off, theres some rules with cars that you just can't stuff around with too much or it wont be a car anymore. Have a flick through this link next time you go to attack a car and will get some better results. http://www.style4cars.com/index.php?...d=51&Itemid=66

    Hell yea thats more like it, those sketches feel allot less rigid and i enjoyed the dude with the strange tooth or beak, its so funny how a little silhouetted dude makes him appear massive and yet when your new its the last thing you would think of doing when your try make something feel big. Any good to see you loosen up for a change and yet not loose any sense of form.

    Thank you for the positive feedback guys! After months of experimenting and frustrations I finally managed to come up with an approach that allows me to stay loose while still having solid forms my drawings. So I spent the whole day on those sketches to see if it was bulletproof. The funny thing is that it occurred to me when I was drawing that last vehicle.

    I followed this sketchbook since it began and you have truly made a lot of progress during your time posting. This has become a favorite of mine. Good job developing your skills. I can't wait to see what comes from you in the future. You keep getting better and better.
