Thx Faust! yeah I'm going to art school! (well kinda) I'm going to go to Montana State university this fall to major in Graphic Design.
Hey look! Page 6!!! 0_0
And he's back!! here's a WIP (sorry about the pic quality) of a piece i'm working on... I think I posted a sketch of it quite a while ago... anyways i just decided to come back to it and I kinda like the direction it's taking... it's sort of a pro-earth illustration...
LMAO squirrel. He looks completely astonished that he's being observed.
Also, I'm looking forward to seeing the Pro-earth piece come along. Quick crit: watch your verticals with those buildings in the distance--some of them read as leaning to the right.
Sedig- Hey man!!! good to hear from you again Thx for the tip about the buildings I doubt I would of caught that until it was to late.
k here's a couple more movie stills (these are pretty fun!) The first is just some random pics. from "Batman" but the next two are from the Kung Fu movie "Curse of the Golden Flower" (not a bad movie but the costumes are phenom.) and btw this might be all for a while because I just got my wisdom teeth removed. so right now I'm still on novican but in a couple of hours... >_< so adios for a few days!
haha,I still have all my wisdom teeth and I won't ever let them go . Awesome to see you're letting that get into your way of drawing, though. drawdrawdraw, you'll so make it, and good luck with university!
Faust- lol then you don't know how lucky you are! Seriously the worst part about it is that you can't eat any "real" food for a couple of days
ok well I survived another day by watching movies on the couch (and occasionaly doing some drawig too) and here's a page that I thought came out ok...
"Here's a page that I thought came out okay?"
You mean that there are other pages? Unposted pages? Put 'em up dude, cuz we wanna see 'em....!
Yes, don't hesitate, your soul-striptease is the fun part of this thing
Your control over values and your pencils in general are getting better each post! You gestures are yet very stiff, though. If I were you, I'd do some gesture-drawing (and I don't mean Loomis-stickfigures) and explore body-dynamics. Go wild!
k owing to the fact that I am very far away from my scanner I will be unable to post images for.... oh.... at least a week but fear not! I will continue to draw with the same... uh... vigor!
Sedig- there are always other pages...
Faust- And what fun would it be if I showed you everything ? lol thx for the crit. I know figure drawing is my main weakness.... well that and videogames...
No excuses! Show the weak stuff, cause that's what shows your flaws, and your flaws are what you must tackle, so how can we crit you when you hide what you screwed up?
Just wanted to rant :>
But what i see looks nice so far. needs more anatomy and gesture, like HumanDude said, and needs LOTS more color! Color! Now! And studies from life, and self portraits Go go go! Draw!!
humanNature6115- Yep a little more anatomy would be nice.... yep....
algenpfleger- thx for the comment! yeah I know I have a lot of work to do (fortunately I have a lot of time to do it...)
Té-Can- Thx! I'll try some color stuff but it's been a while...
ok so I havn't been drawing as much as I'd of liked but here's what i've done over the past 2 weeks... or at least what I feel like showing you k the first 3 are just some doodles that I had fun with while trying some stuff with highlighters too (hey it's colorful. at least in person) and the last two are from ref. (big fan of Bone)
SHOW US EVERYTHING.
That is all.
Nice job. I find it interesting that just the outline with highlighter suggests an entire color field. You might play with that some more.
sedig- I really doubt you show every one of your drawings ;P anyways thx for the comment and yeah the highlighter thing is kinda cool and I think i'll try some diffrent stuff with it.
K no images today but i'd just like to mention that my WEBSITE!!!! is up and running (at least i thinks so...) anyways I designed it completly by myself so tell me what you think.... AndrewLockhartDesign.com thx!
so I finally got a tablet (actually I'm only borrowing it from a friend for a few days) and tried my hand at some digital painting. since I was just trying to get comfortable with the tablet I did a paint over of one of my friends. Any suggestions, tips about using tablets in general, and stuff like that would be appreciated. thx!
Yeah, you're right, I don't. But I come close. I just like to give you a hard time. Website works well, but there a few images (I think they are in the "graphics" section) that failed to load. Also--I'm glad to see the anatomy studies. I'm sure that you will see progress in your imaginative stuff.
Hmm your anatomy-studies look a bit awkward, maybe you should try to draw from some actual (I wrote sexual, hehe. But seriously...) reference. Those Mannequins look like those limbs are thrown onto the hibbones without actual knowledge about the interaction of bodyparts. Under the tutorials there's a life-drawing tutorial that sums the contructive approach up pretty good<.
- basic shapes (Cubes, cones)
- interlocking (How arm goes into shoulder, shoulderpads into back, etc)
- Gesture-dynamics (Using lines to sweeeeeeep)
Or something like that. Anyway, you should take those more seriously. Study the muscles before drawing them that rigurous.
About drawing with a tablet, there's always the Photoshop-painting thread from Bumskee. I think it's within the PS-seciton but it pretty much applies to every major digital painting program. You'll find all the basic exercises you need there.
On another note, your update from the 6th is sweet man! I especially like the B/W toons, nice motion going on there. And the Spiderthor is awesome too!
Sedig- That's ok I like to give you a hard time too (especially about using color ) thanks for the tip about the website. Turns out I accidently forgot to load those images! O_o Whoops! But now it's all fixed (I think...)
~Faust~ - K refrence it is... soon at least! Promise! Thx for the tip about Bumskee's thread I've glanced at it but it takes to long to download on my prehistoric internet connection... Glad you like the cartoons!
K I just came back from Freshman Orientation for MSU and I am absolutley stoked to be going to school there this fall for graphic design! here's a few images I did on the long trip over there...
Hey dude, its been a while since I've been on CA and seen your sketchbook - Great to see the variation continue and like someone said, you aren't afraid to try new stuff. You're definately improving... I know you're after some crits but I can't really think of anything that anyone else hasn't said - Just wanted to say good job and keep it up dude. Cheers
Yeah Prismacolor markers! I really like that still life. The lines are confident enough that I'm not bothered by any technical errors, and the use of tone is beautifully subtle. I definitely want to see you playing with these more.
Mr. Gadbury - Hey! long time no see indeed! thx for stoping by! hope to see you on here more often.
Sedig - yeah I like prismacolor markers alot to but they're so expensive so I only use them for big, finished pieces. (which I don't do a lot of) but yeah I might play around with them some more... and thx. that bottle drawing was very fun to do since I don't do still lifes all to often.
K here's a political cartoon I did not to long ago to build up my portfolio so I could submit it to a few local newspapers and do cartoons for them. Right now I've only gotten one response (and a tepid one at that) but I'm remaining hopeful =)
Prismacolors might be expensive, but they are a good marker. If you treat them right, they will last you a long time.
Then again, you say big, finished pieces... How big is "big"?? I usually work in an 5.5"x8.5" sketchbook with mine, so I don't end up using a whole lot of ink.
K it's been a while but I'm still keeping busy. Right now I'm learning water color (very tricky for someone who likes to control every line) and I'm still working on getting a job doing cartoons for local newspapers.... anyways here's another example I did for them...
hey man would be nice to see youratercolor experiments! It IS an unforgiving medium at first but after a while, when more control kicks in, it's a great way to learn stuff!
I dig those latest lie-pieces, too. Good luck with your jobhunt!
