Great sketch on the surveyor!
holy apple and onion! great stills!
Much love and keep up the good work.
This one still very much a wip... this is going to be for my Art Department portfolio, if it turns out good enough.
Also some head sketches:

Thanks for visiting my SB. I really like the expressions you capture and the imagination you show. Can you use something else other than brown for shadows on your people?
Funny you should mention browns, Black Spot... here's the next step I took on my self portrait:
Yeah, I'm not too sure about the browns... need to play around with it.
wow you got some cool stuff here bud. i really like the studies-just keep working on your anatomy. I know I have to myself. And you'll be ultra-great in no time. I love your 3D modeling too. You gotta teach me one of these days! haha..
Thanks Cris! I definitely don't do enough anatomy studies... I have a figure drawing class next semester so hopefully that will help. Just get yourself a 3D program (Maya and Zbrush are what I have used) and a tutorial or two and you'll be making some sweet stuff faster than you think.
I made a topic in the C&C forum for the self-portrait, so if anyone has any critique to post there I would greatly appreciate it. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=177434
Hey man, thanks for dropping by my SB and thanks a bunch for letting me join your SSG!
You got some cool character concepts going on, keep pushing it.
Also remember the form of objects you are rendering, and how light behaves on different textures.
Looking good, keep it up!
Thanks, Rotor! One of my next pieces will be a still life, so hopefully that will help with materials/textures.
Appreciate you dropping by, Turbosnail!
Here is a Rembrandt study. Didn't quite nail it, but I had to put it away and move on to some other stuff.
Post 53 and post 62 the last piece, 63 the watercolor, post 73 and also the graffiti Santa particularly nice.
I also like the sketch of the CHOW (a lot more more then the finished colored piece,.. except the way she holds the notebook ). I believe that piece would have totally rocked as a watercolor.
Your sketching skills are above the digital paint , you just need to apply more of what you learn from your digital studies that you did for that onion and apple .. to your digital coloring from imagination.
Overall, solid work, and more importantly improvements can constantly be seen, especially in your pencil work... rock on
Will appreciate critique anywhere, anytime .
Hey, your digital stuff is coming along. Especially that self-portrait.
One quick suggestion, before you put the self-portrait in your portfolio. There are still streaks on your face. I tend to follow the lines around the face, instead of noticing the value first. But your probably smoothing them out as I type this.
Looking forward to see your submission to TAD .
The Rembrand study has lost a bit of it's original form, I tend to give attention to the negative space to get the shape as close as possible when doing this sort of stuff. I hope this helps, keep it up!
The form in Rembrandt study is quite good, not absolutely accurate, no, but you're getting it. One thing though, i think you should try using colder color for shade, like violet or blue, if you want to match his color.
Keep it up.
Thanks for your comments everyone! They are all very much appreciated.
For some reason I just couldn't focus on drawing yesterday. No idea why, but these are all I managed to squeeze out. Did some pencil sketches too but I don't have a scanner over break.
There's nothing stopping you from putting a painted self portrait in your portfolio, but the list of suggestions that Jason posted specified "Self Portrait- drawing". Just in case this was going to be 'the' self portrait of the portfolio.

It might sound a bit weird, but besides the line art for the Surveyor what really caought my eye was the onion and the apple study on page one, oh and not to forget the nutcracker piece. I also like the style studies you did, and the fact that you are doing so many studies in the first place - I tip my figurative hat to you ~
thanks for posting, and keep it up.

Izer: Hey thanks for looking through, I appreciate it
Craz: Damn, I completely forgot about that. Thanks for reminding me. Thanks for stopping by too.
dan: Thanks for the comments. I need to do more still lifes... I can never work up the will to do them, although when I do I usually have surprising fun.
Most of my art over break has been traditional, but I'll be able to scan it next week.

Thanks Black Spot and Turbosnail! I'm finally able to scan in all my random stuff
Back at school! This semester I'm taking Figure Drawing 2, Digital Illustration 2, Senior Project, Interactive Design 1, and Oil Painting, although I may have to drop the latter if it's too expensive. Anyways, here's the stuff I did over break... not as much as I wanted because my job kinda zapped all the motivation out of me and i pretty much went straight to bed after work... no good!
Some of these are doodles that I plan to shade in PS, others are practice stuff including some studies from Vilppu.
Here are two watercolors. One is just a line work I posted earlier that I colored in, the landscape is from a photo.
How does this thread not have stars? A lot of your figure work is great; just watch out for elongation.

Thanks Craz. I tend to go for elongated figures for style, but I admit I don't have very good control of it yet and sometimes it mistakenly transfers to my life drawings. I'll keep an eye on it!
