Looks good man, solid proportions. Good use of contrast and value. Start moving towards larger hard brushes to lay down base coats and use low to mid opacity soft edge brushes to add shading on a new layer above the base coat.... should add some nice volume and allow you to work quicker. Looking tight, nonetheless. Keep on not pattycaking around!

I'm actually doing something interesting and different from the norm. I'm applauding myself right now....
December 30th, 2007 #246
Improvements and a lil flip.

And probably the last thing I'll work on with this piece.... And a couple doodles...

And now I'm trying new stuff. Here's to a new year.

Hello there,been too long since i visited thid sketchbook. Sorry about that. So, if you want some crits about that pic with the three faces, here it is:
Well, there's not all that much to crit, the faces look pretty much all right. Bit much shadow on the girl's cheekbone, and the left guy's glasses look fucked up, but other than that, nice construction. I am wondering though why you bothered to render the cars in colour, and not the faces. That seems an illogical choice to make honestly. Another thing is that you might want to change the brush size occasionally, and perhaps tinker with the brush settings some more.
January 12th, 2008 #250
Well I left the faces uncolored because I didn't really know how to color them yet... I'm still learning and things confuse me. I also wanted a backround and all that but I moved on before finishing it.

And now I proudly present to you the fruits of my boredom! A big pencil dump that spans about 3 weeks! Enjoy and tell me what you think for a free T-shirt(but you have to enjoy).
Plus its in order chronologically... old to new.

Omg I hate school... I never have anytime to do this...
February 6th, 2008 #253
No seriously, I am busy... I just don't actually post it all.

Woo! Looking good man! Loving all these charactrer sketches, I wish I had time to do some characters! Your proportions are getting much better and your style is showing too! One thing I would suggest is to start taking your pictures and doing overlays to clean up line work and correct small things while not having to redraw the whole thing. Also, its great to see you doing some paints of still life, especially of starkly different objects. Only crit I can offer there is maybe add a bit more contrast into the white side...not too much to bleach spots, but a little. Overall, good to see you working, keep it up!

Thanks Leadster.... But alas, I hate my teacher, I've written more than I've drawn and two people that I really want to talk to won't give me the time of day because they're assholes now...
But I suppose that since that has scrambled my concentration up and I can't really draw worth a flying shit, heres the shit. Crappiest of the crappy.... best I've done in three weeks...

Soon I will have an actual oil painting (SELF PORTRAIT! SHAWING!) but for now, a little digital practice...
February 17th, 2008 #257
And thats the end of that...

I'm going to upload some pencil sketches in a couple of days but for now I have a question for anyone who will answer. If I'm sketching on printer paper, and have a light directly over the paper, will that cause my paper to warp or act strange to pressing down on it?
February 23rd, 2008 #259
No, not the light, but the oils from your hands can, especially if you keep your hand in one place on the page for a long period of time. You'll lift your hand up and find indents from where your fingertips were and it looks all bubbly and warped. Best thing to do there is to get a sheet of thin, clean cardboard or thicker paper to put your hand on, on top of the sheet you're drawing on, so you can get stability without smudging or warping the paper from contact with your hand.
Finally, that castle looks tight. Really getting a hold of the depth and light. Perspective is great too, just keep at it with the grayscale, move to different brushes if you feel like it, start defining like crazy to get solid realism. Keep it up!
February 25th, 2008 #260
Well I've figured out the part about the oils and crap... had to learn that the hard way. I don't know I guess the light was making my lead feel weird. It was making indentions that I didn't really want and I wasn't pressing that hard. Thanks though, and thanks for visiting. I appreciate it.
Anyway, todays flavor is some pencil sketching. Absolutely 100% imagination, except the Assassin's Creed-ish guy with the hood, and that was with no reference. This is all about two days worth of drawing. I used an HB for all the characters and a 2B for the portrait.

Alright, pencil update and a digital thingy...
March 3rd, 2008 #262
In spite of my dismal sb and some lackluster higher education, instruction, and guidance, I've been attempting to soldier ahead with an enhanced sketch. I'll try to turn it into something. If anyone who knows anything about photoshop painting could please give a hint about how to color over this, I would be thrilled. I'm so tired of greyscale stuff...
Alright its a simple alleyway perspective-value study. I used a sketch of Acre from the game Assassins Creed as reference.
March 4th, 2008 #263
Well, uh, heres what I have going on.
March 5th, 2008 #264
Something different... a little car sketching...
March 7th, 2008 #265
i LIKE CARS EVEN MORE.
March 9th, 2008 #266
I took some advice from the respectable Mr. Kakapoopie, and now have knowledge that will help me to focus a little more on perspective instead of design. I've got a stack of pencil sketches of simple 2 point squares and car sketches, but I've only posted a few digital studies. I think I might be getting somewhere. No reference.
March 12th, 2008 #267
hey mate, you got a cool sketchbook going on here your understanding perspective is strong and those cars are good. there's some offness here and there on your faces, did you check andrew loomis books? these are gold man, make sure to go through them, it will teach you a lot! keep going!

Holy Crap its Algenpfleger! Thanks for the kind words and as for the faces todays update should show that I've improved a bit since last I was around. And yes, (bootlegged) Andy Loomis pages are at my finger tips, I've just been drawing so small recently that It's been a disaster tying to make faces look correct.
And thank you Starbones.
AND HERES MAH UPDATE! Its out of the ordinary since its my very first Oil paintings. The first is a self portrait, and the second is my dead beat friends playing world of warcraft instead of having lots of sex with hookers. Fags...
