I like your texture attempt, wt creature is this?
Great work in here. I love what you've done with the still lifes in the beginning of your sketchbook. Your last post, of the textured horse, has an affecting and mysterious quality to it. I feel like I can smell ancient history. I'd like to see this one explored more. Keep it up.
Fantastic sketches! I think you would be very good at sketching anime.
Check out my Cartooning Sketchbook! 150 Original Pokemon Work in Progress AND A JUST ADDED WEBCOMIC! CRITS PLEASE!
Going to Ringling, huh? That's a great opportunity for you! Congrats! As far as the sketches go - maybe tighten them up a bit. Give consideration to the marks you make on the page. Sometimes it looks a little hairy. I really like the bug-dude! Best of luck!
Hi man, your work is awesome, very promesing.
If you want to get good as sooner as possible, stick to the figure, decompose it in simple forms, and try to draw more confident, with straight lines.
Everything looks great, but remember that painting is way more easier when you can draw as a master.
Fun image! Some comments for ya:
Try to keep elements off the edge of the painting. For instance the car is sort of resting on the border. Get the car up there on the page more. Make it look more precariously placed on the bridge to add some tension.
Grab some reference for the sky, road, rocks and car. I think having better informed elements could really help sell this painting.
Since all we get are digis make sure to keep 'em coming dude! Best of luck!
I finally have a way to get my images on the computer so I'm back to updating this as often as I can.
This is my computer table
My shoe and dog. Unfortunately my dog didn't really know what I was doing and kept moving around.
A painting of a plant in my backyard, then I got bored and played with some paint. (there's some shine on the paint. so some white spots on the plant is really a green or red... )
Sorry about not replying for so long.
I really like the breakdown of your dog's head. It's good to see you thinking about simplifying complex structures into basic forms; that will go a long way to help you construct things out of your imagination.
Keep it up, and update when you can.
WOW, didn't mean to kill my sketchbook like that. I'm back and I'll try updating this as often as possible, I've already got a lot of college work that I might or might not get around to posting but here's some homework for Contextual Figure that I just finished
We had to take 4 gestures we made and re-draw them, then draw the same pose from a different angle without reference. I labeled them so you know which is what. (sorry for the lousy photo-chopping)
Lookie lookie! The prodigal son has returned! Haha Interesting assignment. I may try that sometime! I think you did a great job with the new views. I probably wouldn't have been able to call which is which (original or new).
Try and focus on your line quality. Don't be afraid to erase out a lot of the sketchy lines and replace them with a single deft stroke. When shading you seem to be indicating where the shadows are as opposed to actually rendering the shadow areas. There's a difference. Start RENDERING the shadows and avoid simply indicating.
You're doing good work dude! Best of luck in school and KEEP POSTING! Haha
hey hey! long time no see hows ringling for you?
one crit mainly from me: the forehead (particularly brow bone region) on your greyscale paint portrait in the last post seems too protrudent, like hes got a lump or smthg... also on your first sketch, that neck throws proportion of the character off a little!
looking forward to seeing more of your schoolwork, seems to me like its doing you lotsa good ^^
