@thetylervo: thanks man, I sent you a msg about the references.
quick character before bed. :3
Awesome, really enjoying these characters!
Keep on doing them, I beg you! Just don't stop.... ok that shouldn't have sounded so wrong, but what the hell it doesn't matter as long as you keep on doing those characters
Then add more finish to them and make them all sexy and on fire with awesome paint!
Looking forward to it, or I might just beat you up if you don't
Keep it up
@lilnebo: haha thanks a lot nebo :3 I'll keep pushing the imagination, don't want to get beat up by lilnebo xD kk.
study from a photo, it's not finished yet because I really need to study for an exam right now for tomorrow, so just throwing a crappy update at you all.. sorry! (ugggghhh... school.)
@mike butkus: thanks mike! really like your work :3 i'm honored to have someone like u notice my sketchbook lulzz
@GoGoJojo: lol thanks Betsy. Ilya Repin has some pretty interesting characters eh? :3
well in class right now getting ready for exam, so no update this time! :3
Nice update teapot Like the last sketch a lot
@Galgenvogel: thanks galgen~ keke.. teapot lulz.
here's some pretty quick construction lines for a personal piece that I will work on on/off. Based the figures off canadian music duo (twins) tegan and sara. I'm a big t&s fan and I just recently found out that tiesto did a song with them, Feel It In My Bones. I'm way behind because I never knew they did a collab with tiesto lulz. If anyone has suggestions of what needs to be changed, please say so :3
By the way, everyone listen to their new album Sainthood (^-^d)
can't do much this weekend, but I'll try to fit in my studies and what not. This is just one image... sorry LOL. I have a Japanese speech project to work on and a paper for english... fffffffuuuuu~ ok so 2 bridgman hands, my hands, 1 bridgman foot, and 2 of my arms and yeah. ok bbl
Nice characters! Yeaah I see them
Really good works in here lately, just please spend some time on it and get it finished. It'll pay off so much if you put your best effort into every piece
Take care and keep strong
I relaly like your hand and foot studies, there'S some really good structure in them!
I also like the WIP of the twins. I just noticed that something about the ribacge of the girl in front doesn't quite look right. I think it's the perspective. In that pose you'll look at her breasts from below, so the lower part of them would suggest an upper curve. Draw in the ribcage an perspective/guidelines and I think you'll notice
Keep it up
Hey T-Po! Thanks for the support lately, I figured I should return the favor! Neat stuff in here, you've come a ways since your first page, your figures are looking good and your studies are ace. Though, on the topic of your figures, have you tried to make a habit of doing quick timed gesture drawing on www.posemaniacs.com ? I found that after doing a few hundred (ha!) 30 second gestures my figure creation became much more solid. I think that if you can get into the swing of smooth gesture drawing, your work will take off fast.
Looking forward to more, keep on drawin'!
@lilnebo: roger that lilnebo :3 i'll try to spend more time with my work now, thanks~
@AvisNocturna: thanks Avis. Yeah I notice there is something wrong with her torso region, I tried changing the pose a bit now, but I think there's still something wrong with it
@AustenFM: you know Austen, that's one thing I rarely do is quick gestures. Perhaps I'll try out posemaniacs sometime. I remember using it once but that was quite some time back :3 I'll keep going~
today's crap . I feel like my digital stuff is going backwards when I was browsing through my old studies. Comparing this old photostudy (post#66):
to my recent ones. Anyways I worked on that previous piece a bit more, not sure where it's going but I'm messing around with it. Wondering if I should lay down the values in grayscale first before color? Thank goodness for layers. (._.")
the power!!! danm teapo our improving fast
keep up the hard work man tis paying off
till next time
sketchbook updated October 6th
Progressing fast in here mate! I looked at your first pages and the figures there and I must say youve come a long way. Keep it up mate, Youll doing the right tings. Just think about shape and balance some more and it will all be peachy. Cheers
@OmertA: thanks jamie, glad to hear that. will do!
@Lav: haha thanks Lav. Yeah the mouth is kinda off eh? Gaaaahhh!! :3
@B-Man: thanks B-maaanngg, i'll keep that in mind my friend :3
so here's a still life drawing of some suit of armor i found in my closet... LOLWUT? jkjk photo reference study, and some crappy pencil doodles that aren't worth posting, but it's better than nothing yo.
I was about to say armor in your closet!!! haha
but looking legit man
I think you should work on your brush economy
maybe some sargent studies would help with that
been getting into Dean Cornwell aswell latley should check him out crazy painter
till next time
sketchbook updated October 6th
@OmertA: haha imagine that? i'll have to research brush economy, i'm not too keen on that :'O thanks again Jamie
some still life i couldn't finish due to using my car keys as the subject... fffuuuuu~ lol. random pencils too
@GoGoJojo: haha thanks Jojo :3 I wish I had a suit of armor!! (^-^d)
Small progress on previous digital piece (meh -_-), and I also bought me another bristol pad on friday (14x17in). Drew some random character in it earlier today (will render after this post). I had to take a picture of it with digital cam. and mine sucks xD I need to mess with it more and find the optimal settings for taking pictures of... pictures? haha.. me and drawing girls with short hair lately
nice improvement in this sketchbook - I like that you are committed to it and seem to know what direction you're headed in. Keep it up!
P.s like your gesture pencils, really good movement
@ThomasM: thank you ThomasM :3
@Braintree: Sure thing Braintree, thanks for stopping by buddy
Ugh... I just feel like dropping out of school and concentrate on my art (LOL). Sorry for the crappy updates lately, here's another one to throw at you. These were done with the bristol pad again so they don't fit in my scanner 3': Crappy camera is crappy. Okay haven't had time for digitals in the last 2 days cuz school is being a bitch. I feel guilty not drawing as much today and yesterday (._.') Back to writing this speech for wednesday...
You improved massively! Glancing from pg 1 ALL the way to here pg 12!!! dedication is certainly here. One quick crit, it seems that the way you depict eyes is one of your weaker points. Really think about the form, and cover that thing with them lids. I eagerly await your growth...eagerly!
