    funfetus, I think you're reading my mind! I do believe it IS time for a background! Now this is my greatest weakness. If I do this, then there IS hope for me!! I'm totally scared.

    Thanks about the other concept, too! It's the first time in a good while since I thought of something so imaginative.

    its really cool that u post your work in progress, and the changes are so subtle but it just shows how much they make a difference. as far as the hair goes, it looks great if you feel the need to add to your piece, use the hair as a benchmark and bring the rest of it up to the same quality. overall it looks really good though. but yea try adding in a background and that will get your thoughts going and can help w things like adding in more hues to your character from the surrounding environemnt.

    w the wrinkles on the blanket, i actually liked the ones u had previous=X your new edition feels somewhat forced as in the character would have to have neatly wrapped the blanket over their leg for it to be so flat on that particular section. try just throwing a blanket on the ground or over an object in some random pile and see how it folds naturally. although it is an inorganic object, the ripples and way it folds over object are organic if that makes sense. those subtle touches of color are very nice tohugh. keep it up!

    Hey Jazz, sorry for my absence last week. But I feel a bit better now! You've been busy, I was writing a whole bunch of comments but noticed much already have been said by others. Must say I like the lonely piece more and more, you did a great job with the hair...

    (Yep, I wish Posemaniacs had more men, drawn too much females lately )

    Keep it up!

    kawakaze: Thanks for your input! I'll try once or twice more thing with the blanket, but I'm at the point where I don't want to redo it any more. Too much and I'll just mess myself up! But I see what you're saying. I did it that way so you could see more of the leg beneath, since you mentioned about too many wrinkles and not enough form definition.

    Shea: Ah, there's no need for apologies! I'm glad you're feeling better! ^_^ Thanks about the lonely picture!

    --

    Right now, I'm working on that apparition piece. I'm worried about some things, not regarding the art so much. Mostly about finding work. So I'll probably sound frazzled here and there.

    God, me too. Especially any kind of architecture or vehicles. I've really pretty much always "faked" them. I'm just getting to the point where I feel like I need to get down and dirty with perspective and everything. I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with this one. Good luck! We'll be here to support you.
    ketchook!

    Vehicles will definitely come later for me! Hee hee! I have so much trouble with perspective, too. I want to tackle it and really understand it.

    Thank you, I really appreciate your guys' support. ^__^ You've been more than helpful.

    I didn't do much lately. I've been worried about work and the big scholarship that I WANT...never less than I need. I NEED that.

    So, here's the piddly stuff that I worked on!

    First off, I sort of copied funfetus, but only for one try. Shame on me! But I worked on one pair o' lips! I'll have to put the original pic up, or some of it. IT'S NOT MY IMAGE! Just...can't find the original. I had to blow it up, but it's the normal size here. If you see it online, it should be called 284404run.jpg!

    I tried the eye again, but just a sketch. I think I like the iris most. XD
    Attachment 149697

    I worked on the girl and the big ugly "queen pin" here. I got tired and decided to wait and work on the creepy guy later. Awww, that competition is cancelled, but I'll still do something with this. Right now it's still about the colours just showing the characters. But no effects on colour yet.
    Attachment 149702

    Oh, and I had this idea because of music again! It's a cursed prince. He's supposed to look young, but...cursed. XD That'll be tough right now, but I'll try! Any crits I'll take to help! Oh, I worked on it at 50%, but this is 65 so you can see it better!

    Great update, Jazz!

    First of all, I'm certainly not the first guy to do studies of body parts from reference photos, so don't feel like you're copying! That's something all artists should do, I think. Now go do 100 more. (It came out really good.)

    Your library picture is coming along well. Your color selections are great -- you've really got the hang of working different hues into the local color. The woman's shirt looks all satiny, too. Great work.

    By the way, what the hell kind of music are you listening to, coming up with this stuff? That cursed prince looks good, too. It's still pretty blurry, but the anatomy looks pretty solid. One suggestion I have, though, is to try to work out your light source early on in your sketch, and get your masses nailed down. It'll help out a lot when you get further in.
    ketchook!

    Ah, thanks a bunch, funfetus!!

    Yes, the reference photo is a good idea! I never look at an element of them. I always try copying the whole thing! XD That's my problem! So I'll try 100 lips and eyes and...well, everything! Ha!

    Wow, thanks about the library picture!! I'm trying not to choose too many hues that aren't from the current palette of colours, unless it's time for a little more variation!

    As for the music...hee hee!! Let's just say there are some really good freebie songs out there! One I listened to for this was called Tokyo Dusk. I associate notes with colour, but this time I actually USED that association! I'm going to get into the detail and sharpen the picture soon! So I'll follow your advice about getting the masses and light source down right away. I have an idea. A sort of ruin/cave with a strong light outside. Not sun strong exactly, but bright moon strong? (and also I'll look for a reference of that sort of angle. I was guessing there!)

    hey jazzw, what's up?

    so, regarding the variation I've mentioned, it is not variation in the cylinders (although you can vary and make a cube cylinder! )
    is variating the start order ... like first, see the pose and try to draw it, then check with the transparent paper .... then in other pose you can first check with the transparent paper and after that try to draw it

    nice stuff you are doing man!

    just the study you did for the mouth, I like when I am doing this kind of study I prefer doing for example 10 mouths in 30 minutes than doing 3 mouths in 30 minutes ... of course you need both, but for me works better mileage in lots of different types and views than just some with a very clean rendering!

    best regards!

    Heeello. I think that Cursed Prince piece is really coming along nicely! I like the mood set with all the blues. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    That sucks about the CHOW being cancelled, I saw a lot of people turned in entries for that but then it was all scratched. Are you entering in this weeks CHOW then?

    Oh yeah and I like the studies, very realistic! If I had to crit it then I would say the upper lip looks a little too big. It's hard to tell with the picture being so small though, so maybe not. It turned out well either way though so keep it up!

    I had quite a 180 these past couple days. One day I was feeling down about everything, not confident enough, then the next, I just drew. Well, I drew the other day, too. But I really felt burned down. I'm so glad I could talk to my best buddy about it. She really cheered me up, and she's right about something: I get competitive when I really needn't. I mean, I don't mind trying to get as good AS people. But then I try getting better THAN people, and that's no good. Goes for job finding and art. Just me wanting to be noticed so badly.

    It's brought me to a low. You may or may not see that low every time I post around such a time, but I surely don't mind mentioning it. Now again, I want to do my best, but I wanna be awesome at it! And I want to share my triumphant leap with other artists, NOT compete (all the time).

    Heyo, Bruno! Cube cylinder...oooooh... o_o Thanks for your comments, I appreciate them greatly! So, for that variation, you're saying try the pose on trace paper and check for accuracy, and try another pose, sort of trace it first and then try to draw that pose elsewhere? Something like that? As far as the mouth, it's not that I don't like doing more than one. I just don't always feel like doing so much drawing or studying. I'll probably do more studies later. BUT, I did more sketches yesterday. ^_^

    Clocks, thank you! I probably won't join the next CHOW, mainly because of the days I've had. I don't have time for an attempt yet. That lip picture was weird, because the top lip is actually rather small, but his mouth is open just a touch, and the angle makes it all shaded. So I threw myself off trying to shade both parts correctly! The top lip probably IS too big, regardless! XD

    ----

    Now, here's how my journey through "love thyselfdom" went. First, I tried to draw one night, and it just didn't click.

    I got mad at the drawings. I was feeling bad for a while, but again, got cheered up. Today, I was happy to get out of the house. What a nice day it was, too!! I was getting documents to help in my scholarship application.

    So, went on the bus. Saw passengers, like this one:

    After the document getting, a raspberry sorbetto and sketchbooks, I took to the busiest street I could lazily find! Here's what I got:

    The only thing from real life in this pic is the young lady on the left.
    Attachment 150805

    Tough one. He was wheeling along too fast! I just drew what I got a glimpse of!
    Attachment 150806

    I was a tad annoyed for this pic. The guy was leaning so nicely, then this woman just comes in the way, looking in my face like a razzafrackin'...nevermind.
    Attachment 150795

    I played with a couple poses in the end, but got distracted and happily showed a saxophone player some sketches! We had a nice chat!

    Heya! Huge update hehe, the lines are getting better each drawing, still loose but less messy.. me like! Take your time to work something out though, don't give up when it doesnt work out the first time. You heard it before, but if you go for realism.. you can make the legs longer (Even when you are doing stuff in the style you are developing)
    Everyone has good and bad days, damn these days suck.. such a waste of time and i know exactly how you feel. Good that you picked it up the next day and tried something new..

    Very good that you are drawing so much Jasmine, wish i could get a bit more in.. keep it up!
