You always comment on mine, glad you finally have a sketchie so I can comment on yours
Lookin pretty darn good actually. You faces are nice, the bodies are good but somewhat more formless in comparasin. I'd also reccomend getting a decent sketchbook but as long as you're practicing it's all good.
JessicaNoel -- Glad you like my SB The horses are straight out of my head, due to the many many years I've been poring over "Draw Horses" books, horse calendars, breeding magazines, you name it! Some sketchies had photo refs (the colonial guys, the Indian girl with butterfly fairies).. but most of this stuff was non-ref.
And here we have a still-life I did recently; a "congrats on getting married" card I made for friends [paintmarker, watercolors, and black pen]; and one of my valiant efforts at Photoshop painting -- I'm still very much a n00b!!!
Oh! I love the roses. I like that the outline is red, while the roses would be red. The girl shortly after that is also very pretty. It is somewhat difficult to make "pretty" people when you draw. And that one has a natural beauty that would be found in a real person, but the hair gives her a magical quality. Your faces are also coming nicely. Good veriety.
Great stuff, and thanks for visiting my thread!
Super, you started posting a online sketchbook. I like your horsesketches the best, they are lively. It's a shame that some of your drawings are done on lined paper, ack. But whatever you have at hand works better than not drawing at all.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Pigeonkill -- Glad you like my horses .... I dug out my old blank sketchbook today b/c I need to upgrade from the legal pad but yeah, when ya gotta draw, it doesn't matter if it's vellum or a napkin or lined paper
Very cool ball-point sketches, your latest pencil drawings are really good. You capture the gesture and pose nicely in all of them although I have the feeling you avoid drawing feet
you remind me that i dont sketch nearly enough
Thanks for your comments about my pic, i apreciate that.
wow, you have the right idea doing all those studies, great work! Love the horses, just keep at those studies and you'll be awesome in no time. work at the color stuff more too, I'd like to see some color pieces
I missed some good updates! Post #26, the girl sitting with her hand out...niiiiice. It's got a clean but not-too-clean feeling with the linework. It's also the most solid anatomy from you yet. The centaur is great, as are the roses. You're definately on the right track, just keep drawing.
And thanks for the latest feedback in my SB, you totally made my day!
