Wow! those practices are alot. HEHE. I loved your first few posts, it seems there there is a different style for each work everytime! Keep practising! (and hopefully i will do so with you! XD)
shamandalie: thanks, i have to try do stuff differently
Little less colour, more drawing with cintiq
Damn that was fun , i looked idiot apathys video how he paints and tried those techniques. I hope this translates also to my other painting stuff
Awesomnes Sketches: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=118477
Further work, for my portfolio, have to make another when i have time
something that is really key in idiot apathy's work is he has such good control of his values. Value is worth like 2/3 of the colors you end up choosing.
I dunno if you've seen the peer project yet, but I think it might help you a bit to do some of the exercises
aside from his sexy values and colors, he uses lots of layers. He's a layererererer! ererer!
I'd like to see some long studies from you to see how much you can push yourself to get a finished product
Whoa crazy pencil dude! how the hell can you get that many figure sketches on a page 0o
I like all of the stuff on page 2! you rock sir!
Well well well, it's time to get back into the train. I kind of lazed & burned out myself last time half year ago so i'm taking it easy right now. Anyway, i will try to do these speedies every day and colour are fucked up because i am calibrating cintiq right now.
appear in timescale past this week.
Made this tutorial practice using PROMETHEUS TUTORIAL PICTURE on the left and on the right is the version where i tried to make it proper. Eh
Few post again, should post these daily as i made these daily... practises practises
Now Finally a proof i have been looking prometheus tutorial for FAR too long... someone call good old freud...
See if you had the My Little Pony into a unicorn, then she could blink away from the evil Spore monster..
I'm afraid I don't have any deep or insightful crits to give you; I think the practice you're doing is great and this sketchbook is a record of your progress. I think your sense of anatomy has really deepened, and your digital works are coming along great as well, in such a short amount of time too. I especially like the img of the volkswagen in the top right of your last post. So keep it up and keep us posted
Dierat: I think the pony will be most happy when she participates the "happy dance" with sporemonster. Thanks for all, i try to be hard working one, promise
Clochette: Thanks, i think too it turned out somehow better than rest of the pack
Few more, skin colour this time and robot colour as well
This is Titled: "LITTLE CYBERNETIC SYSTEMS" and it is for gentleman's drawing club: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...62#post1910562 all are welcome to join club if you think you have tastes delicate enought
I oversaturated this a bit too much i think, but othervice turned out nicely
whoa whats up in here?away for half a year and you bring in THIS?!
excellent progress man!
the latest updates definately show a very, very good progression, i really like many of these, both drawing and color wise.The colors look a bit weird too me, all very light...maybe try non-white backgrounds, or some planned out bg for you character/creature/vehicles, so that you can bring in the background colors in the figure (main light, fill light, all that poop)
excellent work man, don't slow down now!
Gnoll: Thanks mister, nice to hear someone thinks some progress has been made . i agree that i should work with the values of my colour so i try to make little more of those images with BG than OC.
Anyway this is my DSG entry, i shouldn't have pushed myself like this because this picture was so hard that it actually almost broke my drawing spirit. Damn, why does subjects you never draw have to be so hard... (DSG 1409: Sci-Fi • SPACESUITED ALIEN XENOLOGIST DISCOVERS A FOSSILIZED HUMAN SKULL)
It's a bit 2d so i will try next time to do it little more 3d
In the 2nd img in post #74, I think the colors look just great. The only thing that looks oversaturated to me is the shadow, which should obviously be much more neutralized since it's a shadow. It also looks a bit strange because you don't have green anywhere else in the img, and your shadows should be falling back to the general color of the background. You have a warm brown color happening in the bottom left of the shadow that I think is really nice; if you just painted over the shadow with that color at about 30% opacity, I think that would really bring the img together for you.
I really like the last img you've added; I think it has a great composition and I love the yellow and blue palette. My only crit is that the orange foliage in the foreground seems a bit overbearing to me atm and it's covering up parts of the figure. I would suggest cutting out the big flowering bit and just leave it as puffy stalks of grass like in the section just to the left of the figure's foot.
Great work, keep it up
I agree, your recent posts show mind blowing improvement!
Keep on posting!
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!
MY DAY JOB http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=136204
MY ANGRY SKETCHBOOKhttp://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...129015&page=13
thanks for dropping by my SB.
great stydies u got here, and i really like those envos at the top of the page, and the tutorial pic, great stuff, keep em comming.
dierat: Thanks, yeah i can see it now... i think there is some calibration with my screen to be had because i didn't really see it before... thanks for noticing, it is not made with purpose
angry filippino: thanksi try
Sublimus: i will do the doing, promise
Shamandalie, thanks, i shall
lotet: thanks, here they go:
Well i have been travelling around the globe and had not have too much time to draw so there is this only one lousy piece which is my first failure for a long time, so i tried to save it by making it black and white old picture (which i can do since it is for the gentlemans drawing club).
One character concept, i am currently at exchange and i will have to do some concepts for this rocketsomething game. I am actually not into game design but right now i take every change to broaden my experience and artist skill as a blessing. second picture is just influencend by too much ashley woods expose.
Little pale colours? i have to look up into values...
GRAAAAHHHHhhh i really should calibrate my screen, there is colour problems between cintiq and my laptop screen so pictures never end up looking as good here on the CA as they do on my cintiq... shit

Are you going to art shcool right now? If so, where? Great stuff. Wonderful progress, keep it up!
very cool sketchbook, dude. you're showing great improvement especially colorwise. the rendering is definately getting better as well and you got some crazy twisted ideas .
what I'd recommend is just trying yourself on really finished pieces once in a while. they really help best at seeing yourself what your weaknesses are.
good work, keep sharing!
hey thanks for commenting on my sb
your work is very impressive
the body studies are very good especially the one with the chacters hand outstretched, you nailed the foreshortening on that one keep it up
really nice works you have here.And you are very young right?You just have to keep understanding anatomy, and this will make you understand how to put color in certain regions .Keep up
Thnx for visiting my sketchbook
Wickededges: Right now im studying as a exchange student in netherlands, nhl university. Place is ok, but better is that ican draw every day at school.
Monotony: thanks man, i will try to come up with a really interesting idea so i will have to finish it completely
Radon: thanks for visiting, shall keep up trucking
Shalite: Thanks, i like that one too
Kingkostas: You know, most innocent compliment can be the most brutal critique you have ever received. Your comment about age almost gave me an artcrisis, i mean i am 25 and i feel i am right back at the DA which is really, really depressing if true. Thanks anyway for the visit, your critique about anatomy is right, still my achilles knee. I will try to come anyway out from this pit of senseless selfpity.
New work, i call him GROOVY ROBOT! (althought there is nothing groovy about him.
