You are working hard, your studies are good evidence of that. Keep thinking in shapes, try to give them volume by drawing through, create ovoids and cubes by drawing the back lines in lightly.
Have fun with your nexts. =)
prsnsweeney: Thanks. I appreciate the kind words
alexon: Thanks maaaan
Kungfoowiz: Thanks! Yeah I do that actually O: I suppose it doesn't show.
Meh, I could have been more productive.. I've had my young cousins over too, can't really do much studies when they are around (a lot of noice and they are too innocent to see my figure drawing pictures haha)
Been playing around with sketchbookpro. Fun to paint in..
Super ugly sketch, first attempt at painting in sketchbook pro D;
study (if this disappears I'll attach it later.... imageshack you know)
I got to please you guys expectations >:c damn it, I'll be back
I'LL BE BACK
Great works even though you had little distractions. =)
The colour on those girl's lips is really clever. Be careful with the modeling of your noses though, some edges could possibly be lost and would improve your faces I feel. Your lips are coming out well though.
Have fun with your next drawings and paintings. =)
well well well who do we have here
Nice studies man
hey man thanks for droppin by my sketchbook, these value studies look great, love the daarken one, I could tell straight away, it looks just like him!
awesome sketchbook man!
love the figure studies, they're coming on leaps and bounds in just a few pages.
really really liked the painting of the red guy with big horns on page 9, the colours stand out very well - was that an imagination job? really impressive, keep it up!
hey hows it going great work i like your value studies it looks really solid just dont forget about highlights
Thanks for all your comments!
Something pretty bad happened recently, my computer crashed and I lost a lot of stuff. Including a new painting I've been working on for a while. So sadly, I would have things to show but I don't anymore. I have sketches to scan, I actually scanned most of it yesterday but since my computer crashed, I haven't felt like scanning any of that again.
A lot of stuff is going on and I'm pretty busy. It's a stressful time.. ugh..
Here's a drawing though.. beeeeehhhhhh
post 274 - nice studies, but push yourself harder and do more advanced and sharp rendering. Use sharp texture or 1-3px square brushes. Cheers!
Awww, hey bro.. really sad to hear you lost work. Maybe try see the positive side, and if you've drawn it once, then you can draw it again, although not quite the same, but it could be better.
Good luck with your next drawing, keep well bro. =)
Grassy: Thanks. Yeah, you're right I should do that.
Kungfoowiz: Thanks man, most of this is taken care of now
Vitra: Thanks, I'll try to
Things are finally starting to calm down, I'm done with my drivings license now so that's a big relief! My god I'm so happy that's over, now I can focus on things I like! All I have to do now is to get into my old schedule again and get things rollin'
Sketches and stuff!
hah like the sketches of the skulls - I would definitely try and squeeze in some more contrast between your heavy and soft pencil lines if possible. This contrast will make certain aspects recede or come forward, depending on how you want them to be seen
Alex: Thanks och tack!
Thomas: Thanks. Yeah I see what you mean. Most of these sketches are done with an inking-oneliner pen though. The tone is done with a brushpen. Maybe I should blend a darker grey?
^reason I posted, so others know what medium that is.
i see some good improvement man your gestures look pretty solid except for a couple the proportions are off... its hard to say what needs the most work. i like the red headed alien creature. i also like the sketch at the begining of this post with the car and the explosion in the distance. hmmm i would say work on the rythem and design of the body. some of your gestures the pose really flows and looks good but others its stiff and awkward.
DefiledVisions: Man tackar!
weeny: Hm yeah I see what you mean, I paused videos too so I might have captured bad poses too. It's hard to tell. Funny you said it looks like an explosion too btw heh. It's actually a bush but looking back at the drawing I totally see what you see. But that just make the drawing cooler Thanks for the comment!
Been a weird week.. My grandfather passed away a few days ago and it's been up and down. People calling and asking for stuff and such.. Been asked to do a drawing and to play (guitar) and sing at his funeral.
I have more to post but I don't feel like scanning. Maybe later.
quick life study around 15 minutes or something
The waterback is found in very wet and muddy swamps. It's very shy so it only comes out under the crack of dawn and late at night. The rest of the day it spends sleeping.
The slippery skin helps the waterback to easily slide through the wet grounds, this is necessary because when the waterback needs to escape at a quick rate, it takes a leap and slides on it's stomach through the grass.
The waterback is very lazy and prefers to move very slowly but it is able to move quickly if it has to, which is rare. The waterback is about the same size as a brown bear.
The waterback feeds on snails and insects. And as some other animals, uses grass and small stones to help digest food because the waterback has no teeth.
That last b\w and red monster are actually quite nice. With the read one you've almost pulled it off - maybe not enough highlights. Anyway good work, keep practicing - this is the most important thing in art.
Grassy; thank you for your comment!
I've tried to achieve that painterly look, fucking hell is it hard! I try to limit my strokes and blends but I always end up smudging/blending that shit together anyway. Going to do some sketches figuring this stuff out.. (example on what I'm going for: http://tobiee.deviantart.com/art/frank-141497510 )
SooOOoO I need to step up with the studies I feel.. but anyway, here's something.
I tried to make it painterly but it ended up looking like all my other paintings (that smokey-whatever looking rendering thing I do), not that I don't like it.. I just tried to achieve something else but the final product matters more when you do jobs, right?
The lava on the arms were fun to do though.
Trying hard to get my edge stuff right. Been studying other artists a lot today (taking notes too) about edges and stuff. I really want to be able to pull of that painterly look!
I did some anatomy studies too but like most of the time I don't feel like scanning.. Time killer.
Firstly, I'm sorry hear your grandfather passed away man.. keep it together there. =)
Rocking studies here, the paintings are really interesting so far.. Also thank you very much for your advice in my sketchy, I will try to do as you say.
Mmm, yip, I think keep kicking your own ass with the study (boring, hard stuff yip) and your paintings should move in the right direction then because of the study.
Alexon: Thanks man! I'll try that out, I usually feel weird using filters and stuff But I'll check it. I usually do adjustments "manually", I don't feel good with letting PS do too much work.
Kunfoowiz: Thanks, I appreciate it man.
Sorry for the long break guys. I thought I'll leave you guys with a big dump before I leave for two weeks to Spain.
It's going to be fun to go there! I'll be sketching stuff and drinking and swimming and having fuckin' fun!
Some new and old sketches I finally decided to scan! Man I should scan more often..
Concept stuff for my next illustration that's going to be included in my portfolio (hopefully). I'm going with the top right face.
This was a painting I did before I did the face concepts, just to paint something.. I always make better illustrations if I play around with the concept more.
Thumbnail for the painting. The colors are probably incorrect since my monitor is badly calibrated. (the text is backwards, I know)
For a contest on ArtOrder "Log Monster"
Painted a sketch done by Skottie Young
Thinking of making a finished concept piece of this for my portfolio..
See you in two weeks!
