    Renegade's Book-Update 24th July

    I really want to improve, so i figured this is the best thing i could do. Not much to show but ill keep this updated often. Thanks and critique is very welcome.

    This was a sketch that i decided to take further as i liked the piece. The helmet looks quite Helghast, which wasnt my intention just turned out that way. Id love some feedback as its still a wip as you can probably tell.

    These were fun to do, playing around with some of m@'s brushes creating medievil characters.

    Alrite chuck! Good to see you overcome your deamons. Keep working those studies. Shame none models have the same physic, lol. Start to push yourself more into, thinking about values and keep on experimenting too!

    Hi there! Good start.

    Personally im clueless about painting so I cant help you about that first WIP,but what I can say is ,mind the body proportions and anatomy. On few places the hands are bending strangly and it seems like the bone is broken or something.
    Anyways keep up with the studies, you are on the right track!

    AK86- Cheers matey, yeh theyre cool thanks! Some stuff was really unfinished in my eyes, so couldnt be bothered to post it.

    I just applied to Bobby Chiu's digital painting course for August, im really looking forward to that. The course im studying at the moment teaches me barely nothing, so it should be a breath of fresh air.

    Anyway, here's a quick doodle of an electric eel, non ref.

    I could have sworn I posted in this.... o well, now I am

    Very nice textures in these, but I think they come at the cost of form (looks like 2d textures and not 3d objects with texture) I'd suggest really breaking things down with planes, and describing the form basically first, then addin all that juicy texture on top.

    Good stuffs

    Rhineville- Thanks man, yeh i need to watch my form when using the texture brushes. Its pretty easy to loose it when using them and it just becomes random. Ill be more careful in future. Thanks for popping by!

    Never do environments, so i thought id give one a go. One day i will finish a paint, got bored of this tho. Meh.

    Pylon-Thanks! yeh, ill keep that in mind for sure. I go life drawing on wednesdays so hopefully that'll start paying off eventually. Im gonna go back to basics and paint solely with a round or chalk brush and paint. Then when i can paint well with them, move onto adding texture. Thanks for stopping by

    More experimenting, trying out a different style.

    some nice stuff here. the only thing that jumps out at me is that your anatomy needs work on most of the character drawings - the figure drawing ones are really good. Like that picture in post #4 would look really good if the anatomy was better

    keep it up

    Hey
    Nice sketchbook I like the black and white digital pieces and thumbnails. They are good practice. And I like the diversity in your work.
    Now the only thing left to do is practice anatomy as kovah said.
    Keep drawing and having fun

    When in doubt, run and shout.

    I really like the silhouettes. I guess you just make a bunch of copies of one dude, and go crazy with it? Your creatures are cool too. However, I don't think you're paying enough attention to creating form with your rendering. You get a lot of nice texture in there, but it still looks flat. Practice rendering spheres, cubes, cylinders, etc., then apply what you learn to your figures and critters. It's all about the fundamentals.

    Keep drawing!

    ketchook!

    Cool Stuff

    I thought you have some really cool stuff here. Your coloring seems to be really on point. Great work regardless. Practice for us all is an understatement. I have come to the conclusion that the work is never good enough and I don't have 500 years to live so all I can do is do my best. Good luck and tight work. =)
