    Sork's New SB

    Well, starting anew since I've been long gone, and the old one just have a bunch of red x's.... Guess the attachment thing isn't a bad idea at all.

    Just starting out with my CHOW entry this week. I know it's full of faults and horrible mistakes, so you're welcome to totally destroy it for me, evilly even, so I can find even more faults with it, hehe. Didn't have the time to fix the ones I know is there, and other things keeps making it wrong, but I just can't seem to focus right on the details so I find what's really the cause of the major "ick'ies". Also, it's not how I usually paint on digital, went for something new, that might be why I have trouble finding the "hot" spots, heh.

    Thought I'dd add five of my old ones, from the old SB thread, that still has some valid value for me. Value because they learn me a LOT in the process. And because I got great help from CA members both in creating and serious C&C on them later.

    I like the gun...if only it was real and you could go shoot yourself for being better than me. lol Uh, I like th CHOW and the hands (though they look a bit skinny and the fingernails are iffy). The animals are good though...Is that a kangalope or something? The values are good, decent contrast, though that can be pushed more.

    Keep at it

    My fingernails had nailpolish. :p Hard to get them natural then, hehe.

    Yeah, everything needs to be pushed more.... Messed around in PS today, and just got two doodles out of it. Meh. Well, it's a sketch book.

    weirdest compliment ever—don't touch any guns! your rendering skills are a delight! You've got a lot to learn about light, but the potential for greatness is definitely there. Keep pushing yourself constantly to get better with your artwork, breaking bad habits and acquiring good ones and you'll do fine for yourself to make things immediately better, practice head anatomy and expressions, and trying to "capture a likeness" on the quick. Speaking of quick, try quick studies of people or animals maybe 7-10 minute drawings and free your heavy hand from that tendency to explore every part of the surface. obviously you're very creative--> you will have more fun with your creativity after you've developed your "chops" a little more

    all the best

    Thanks a lot for your comment

    Yeah, I really should. Good advice. I've been slacking a lot lately, and life drawings has been the thing that got chopped out first. Tend to get too hung up when doing them too, and end up using WAY too much time on each. I guess my cat better have to be inside tonight, I'm gonna draw its positions, heh. And light is my great pain, so I know I definitly need to get that straightened out.

    Another pain with pencil is water. I never EVER get it like I want it to. So I'm having a go in PS to see if I can learn something about it there. Started out with this, hopefully gonna get some more done on it later.

    Shin! How's your 3d stuff going?

    How's it going? Morae and I've gotten married. And he's moving here now this month!

    Here's some portraits from the project just for you that I did last month (yeah, still in it, but slacking like hell......heh....) They were made for 100x80, so I'll keep them that way, no great details, hehe....

    And also an update from the pic above for now, got some more time with it now after work.

    3D stuff is going slow but steady! I'm working my behind off on something Dcept kindly prepeared for me, but it's difficult... Modelling a samurai.
    That's my main project nowadays, anyway!

    And... married? Wow! Congratulations! You two have been really busy lately, haven't you? Married.. and now he's coming to stay.. That's excellent! I'm happy for you.

    as for me I only have three months left of school, and then I need to find somewhere to study 3D, finally. Time is surprisingly enough moving fast!

    ah! Portraits! How's the project doing nowadays anyway? The portraits are looking good!

    Hey! Det var en stund siden! Skjønner det, i og med at du har blitt gift og greier! Gratulerer!

    Gonna switch to english... hehe

    You've definately improved from what I remember! The digistuff is what looks best IMO... maybe bacause you're not nervous about making mistakes the same way as with the traditional stuff? I know I feel a lot more free in a digital enviroment...

    crit time (you asked for it... hehe ) : The dude at the top looks good... but everything is treated like it's the same material... the light strikes exactly the same all over... You could create a lot more focus in the areas you want the viewer to see if you gave some areas a bit more punch with a hard brush (varying the edges... soft vs. hard) and a bit more contrast in some areas... like metal bits and pieces would be more shiny than the suit he's wearing... makes for a more interesting "rhythm".. One more crit: Have a look at the facial structure of your characters... they far cheekbone seems to be pushed too far forward on a lot of the 3/4 views... after you scan, flip 'em in PS, and you'll see.

    The enviro is looking pretty solid! You're using a lot more difference in brushes and strokes here, and that sells the image a lot better! Water is looking a lot better in the last update! The atmospheric perspective is looking good as well!

    Keep 'em coming! And thanks for dropping by my SB!!
