Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Aveh: The explanations and demo are done by the teacher, which usually takes up to half an hour at the beginning of the lesson -if it's a more complicated subject there's usually some more talking halfway through the lesson. After that, the teacher and the assistent just walk around, comment on peoples work and answer questions. I do those little drawings in between to show the students examples of what they're supposed to do
fughi from yuggoth: Hehe there's a lot one can achieve in just 2 years Hope to see you improve in many more IDW's to come!
Nightblue: I got it teached to me the old-school way, which I'm very glad of. Thanks for stopping by!
What's this? A fresh page with no art in my SB? That won't do! Here's another drawing from class, since it was the last lesson of this semester already it is basically a summary of all the lessons that came before. This one was a bit muddied up with stuff I did for the students on the backside of the paper so I had to use some PS.
Been rather busy with commissions and uni projects lately, but I found some time to make something for the current EOW. The topic is Two Ancient Markers on the Moors (markers as in uhm..landmarks..and a Moor is a kind of grassy, swampy and rocky landscape).

i love your techincal drawing man - its a real inspiration!
i especially love the process for the military vehicles, its making me want to go do some tanks and jeeps! going to give me something to think about next time i try and tackle vehicles.
i think your landscape work is really improving as well - it looks like that in the past you sometimes lacked some confidence with your landscapes but as you do more and more of them i can see the marks and colour choices becoming far stronger...
strybjorn: Colour is something I'm still struggling with yeah. Thanks for the encouragement though
Here's the 'final' version of it, though I might touch it up later on if I find some time.
Also, since it's International Self-Portrait day, here's my feeble attempt. Considering this is way out of my comfort zone I think the result is passable. Took me about 1.5 hours or so.
Hey Guido, have to watch you now that I've met you eh You need to transfer some of your perspective skillz thisaway I think... Awesome lovely work man, your portfolio was pro stuff for sure
Ooohhhh, that EOW turned out great! The self portrait is looking a little stiff - but well done! I like the colour variation.
Pretty sick stuff in here dude. I really loved the military vehicle. Did you learn how to handle colors and values like that in school or just on your own?
One advice I want to give you is to use longer gestural lines when drawing organic stuff. Other than that your stuff is already pro. I'm looking forward for more.
very nice things found hear....aasome....!
Teh Gosu: Heh it's a nice enough orange alright
Pinflux: hey goggleman! Was cool meeting you, and I might have left part of my brain in NZ by the way. I want to go back there.
MattGamer: Maaaatt! *tries to get away*
sinneart: Thanks. Yes I should've spend a bit more time on that SP, but it was already late and I wasn't really planning on even starting on it. Definately going to do another one next year though.
drd: You should!
fantasyartist: Thanks dude. Learned it both on my own and in the drawing classes here - I think . I need to work on my organical stuff a bit I think, you're right about the lines.
Call0ps: Will do!
daestwen: Here's an update for you! yeah I'm kind of embarassed about that first SP to be honest. Ah well, we live and learn.
bharat: Thanks dude.
So, small time update. Started on this weeks CHOW (Jiao-Long, Velociraptor). Still haven't gotten around to scanning in my sketchbook from the workshop, I'm lazy...
cool dragon sketch and best mentor thread title ever!
Just finished browsing through your ENTIRE sketchbook, awesome progress and awesome work.
You and Britt should come back to New Zealand!
Wanna see more like this:
Keep it up!
Kidult: Haha yeah that was Davi's idea though. Should update it one day I guess...
CUBICcube, Alm0st: Thanks
Max: I just might go back there one day and stay there, actually. NZ was awesome.
mariusz: There should be some more in this sketchbook I think. Lessons start again next quarter so there might be some more updates on those
Time for another update. Finally got around to scan in some pages of my sketchbook from the MB Workshop in New Zealand (and some sketches from afterwards).
The tree and knight on the left I did while having a 9 hour transit in Hong Kong. Pretty much in zombie mode after a 10 hour flight. Airports are surprisingly boring places. There's also a half-hearted attempt at life drawing from the WS in the middle and a sketch for the velociraptor CHOW from a week ago. Just stuff...
Oh and something I did for shits 'n giggles during lesson. The exercise was for the students to draw a sort of user guide for a product/project they were working on, so I thought I'd give a quick example

Nice to see you get some more sketch time in after having to keep reigns on us over at the IDW. (you do a great job there btw). i thought your portrait was great for only 1.5 hours. I see how you used many (guessing) layers with opacity to give your shading. I need to learn to do that better, just cant seem to get the hang of it. neat stuff man.
I only live for today, but I'm one day behind.
a la bapsi: I use a cheap ass piece of crap fineliner actually, but one that lends itself to making different lineweights with it in a more easy way than others I've tried. Actually, I've posted something on that here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...87&postcount=2. Thanks for dropping a comment
Dragonspit: Thanks man, great to have you around in IDW (finally, after several attempts ) What I used for that SP was just one layer with the lines, a layer underneath with the color (and a background layer), then flattened it and put another layer on top to get rid of the lines. I set my tablet pressure to opacity usually.
Another small update, couldn't pass up the current EOW topic since it includes castles. Nothing fancy, but at least I had fun doing these for a bit. Lots of issues with both of them though, and I don't think I have time for another try before the round ends. Ah well, there's always the next round
Ey Guido (for some reason I'm not being emailed sketchbook updates any more!).
More sweet stuff, I love the humour in your chair design sketch Nice castle sketches too - my fav is the one on the right. That little tunnel entrance makes it just a bit more interesting, and the atmospheric perspective is nicely done. Looks like the horizon line on the left castle needs to be a lot higher though! Keeps it up!
And yeah, you totally should come back sometime
Do you perhaps own a copy of 'presentation techniques' by dick powell? nice work
British hack at your service ma'am
SKETCH BOOK ^
wow great updates love the castles and other doodles
also had a question what precent are those grays on the
old bulldozer sketch and are you using prisma-color
i had some of the older prisma grays but they all seem
so thick and dark.
-Sketch Book Updated Sporadically-
Tumbler & Wookmark (finished pieces and Cool stuff I find)
-Facebook(always on but never post)-
If you see me on FB, or CA Talk to me, never to busy to talk and love to hear from you, chat me up about anything (Music, Games, art, ect)
If anyone is interested in streams or hangouts let me know!
Pinflux: Heyo You're right about the horizon, the perspective in that one is kinda screwed anyway. Wish I'd had time to finish something for that EOW though.
Burntumber: Nope I don't I'm afraid, but I'll look into it sometime.
Demo: I use copic markers for a while now. I use C3 for most of the shading, and for the darker bits usually a C5. I've put it through PS too, so things might have changed a bit.
Another half-arsed update for now. I was planning on entering the last CHOW: Knights of the Round Table, but I'm kind of bogged down by a big project that's coming to an end now so I didn't get to finish it
man...your work is awesome...i really like it so much...looking for more
FUCK frustration...i'm comin baaaaaack
I love that castle on the right. The rocks are rendered well, and the lack of tonal work on the castle walls, along with the sky, give a look of high brightness.
