Dude those life studies are dope! Great progress man, great progress!
What was it again?(no)
Hey bro! =) Your stuff is looking good as always! =) Liking your last face a lot, kudos on the imagination paint too, lighting is pretty good too =) Maybe could push values for the eye sockets back a bit in the second face.. Hope that helps, you're doing good though, Keep rocking bro! =)
Yeah I agree with Kungfoowiz, that WIP is looking good. Don't let AP classes underestimate Art time
teapo: thanks duude
Ven S: Haha unfortunately I have no control over them.. I'm taking four.
Kungfoowiz: Yup I'll try to keep working at it, but finishing pictures is something that's tough for me. :/
i actually have to move these/bring them to class tomorrow to varnish so there's no continuing on this one. But yeah.. Originally done in colors but then I backed out because things were going bad D:
nice shoe study
Hey! This is a great sketchbook! So much improvement! I like how hard you're working and how much you post. It's great. The shoe study is looking good. I might push those values a bit more just to help it stand out. Other than that, keep up the great work!
Aresa: haha yeah I think it might've been the daylight affecting how I saw it. I looked at the image in PS again at night it looks really washed out. thanks
i should update more often.
probably won't be working on this anymore
still life. was mostly focusing on the orange and not the background/pencil sharpener..

keep at it bro! the last illustration looked promising, but i understand why you want to take a break from it. the still life also looks good. my only crit on future paintings would be to work on the whole image instead of focusing on a single object. and haha, i remember how much AP classes sucked :p you gotta trudge through them though man. just don't let them eat away at your drawing time. good luck!
jeremy: hey thankss
Eightball: Haha basically I just started seeing all these mistakes in the composition after I had rendered so much.. I decided to scrap it. I should probably plan these better.

Hey thanks for stopping by my sb. You have some good stuff in here, theres a lot of improvement from the beginning to the end keep working hard and doing lots of studies
A lot of this is work I've been too lazy to scan in the last week. I'm not actually this productive.
some of the drawings done during school/bored in class
Ahh this one was a bit weird. I feel like he knew I was drawing him.
acrylic sketches, about 40minutes each.
Your linework is getting better and better! I've especially noticed it the last two posts.
Acrylics are a lot of fun and its great that your playing with them Some colours are so transparent and delicate like and others are so bold and opaque . Piling on layers of the transparent ones gives a beautiful deep jewel like quality, but you need to use the right colours- some are just opaque and turn out a bit chalky if you use them thinly (avoid white for this at all costs!). If you go to the manufacturer's website (depending on the quality of the paints) they'll usually tell you all the specs like opacity, pigments, tinting strength etc which is very useful to know. Going in thick and chunky can be a lot of fun as well.
So much good stuff going on in here. Life painting, anatomy, screencaps, self-portraits... very nice variety of studies. That alone inspires someone like me. As Pixie Trick said your lines are also getting better all the time. You already got that natural looking and confident flow going in parts of those last drawings. I feel that drawing from life helps the most with that, and it seems that's working for you too.
Also that Blade Runner(?) study looks hot. It's a really good movie to study lighting from.
All I can say is keep going. And don't forget to always try to apply what you pick up from these studies. You'll learn faster that way.
"You might be disappointed if you fail, but you will be doomed if you don't try"
Hey bro, those MMA's are really good, I like some of the arms you did in them =) Would maybe hit your portrait with a few dark accents, for example in the eyes, nose and mouth to place a bit of a focus =) Work is looking nice nice =) Keep up the good work! =) Cheers Cheers! =)
jeremy: thanks, I'll try haha.
kungfoowiz: Yeaa I'm always a bit afraid to go past 10% because I'm not sure how it'll show up on other monitors :/.
ismo: Haha yup blade runner, I actually had just watched it for the first time and then I did the screencap after that. I think a lot of the flowiness in the lines is inspired by like James Jean or Jana
Pixie_Trick: Thanks! You always have so much info on traditional mediums. I can't wait till I get into oils. Just kidding Right now though I'm using really really low, lower than student grade, paint, because that's what my teacher has.
heres some broken ribs:
imagination-ish studies to apply^
quickie Jaime Jones study:
Uhh and a speedpaint from imagination that looked a lot better last night than it does now
Trying to break from my comfort zone and yet at the same time not really. Canyons are kind of my comfort zone within my uncomfortable zone.
Just a sketch playing around with colors. I wish I could say I was more productive than this today art-wise but..alas.
I'm looking into some color theory so that I don't make these decisions in color so blindly.
Solid work on those ribs bro, you can almost eat them! =) Lull =) Mmm, not sure what to say atm, I think the colour is looking nice from mind =) For the plane, maybe not blur the edges around it so much, just a thought, for example once you have a shape painted for it, could lock the edges of the shape, just a suggestion mind.., hope it helps =) Studies are lookin good! =) Good luck with your next study =)
