Thankyou Naidy basic but extremely helpful i will move on to lighting studies starting with ur advice
Hey tom, nice SB! It's cool to see your drawing when you fill it with imagination, such as the monster in post #22 , the robot with number 16 on his shoulder, in also the frog with black suit and hat
Hmmm... I recognized some of your sketches. A lot of Bridgman. A bit Loomis. Few Gnomon's Dynamic Figure Drawing (I'm watching it right now too hehe). Also the "new book" you mention, is it the book about Fantasy Artist (I forgot the title, but it's published by Pageone, isn't it?). Nice study so far!! I'm a bit envious that you are able to spend so much time drawing. I got much distraction from my college. Have to attend the class and listening to the lecturer speaking something that already written in text books, the tasks to write academic paper, do and prepare many presentations (I got to do about 10-13 presentations in this two months), etc etc... (I couldn't take art-related university, that's the reason college is pretty bothering for me). Not to mention distraction from my family, leaving me only 3-4 hours to draw everyday... But yeah, just keep drawing! Keep drawing!!
And about the game design you mention before, is it "game design" that using a program to input this code, fix this bug, add this mod, and boring technical stuff like that? >,<
You do good on those presentations, and use every second of ur free time dedicating it to drawing. u will be champion of the pencil so that u can earn the freedom of imagination!
P.S. Thankyou, for ur comment i appreciciate u stopping by as to help encourage me
Cheers for the comment bro, i will be hoping to see more in the future n cheers for the encouragement kidda, all the best man
Looking at the two studies that you did near the top, the one that is the print screen and the one that is right underneath of that as a naked woman, I think that you are putting down colors that you that you think are supposed to be there rather than the ones that are there (Though that may have been your intention?).
Since you're using a computer, I think that a good thing to do would be to grab a photo of one of these people, put it in the drawing program you're using, and then use the eyedropper tool to pick colors off the skin. This'll help you gather a more context-free look at the colors that are there, and it'll give you a stronger idea of what type of colors are there. If you have the palette window open while you're at it, it'll even give you the color's exact location on the wheel in many programs.
Hopefully this is helpful... :d
And here's my sketchbook. Help me out with some c&c?
thankyou guys, great c'n'c electric rhapsody, my next post will be more colour studies and learning more software.
here i have done a collaboration WIP with a friend from college i did the detailing and shape manipulation.
Here are some Shape Manipulations learning the program alchemy. Android Jones Inspired!
Looks like you’re pretty inspired by Andrew Jones which is cool nothing wrong with that. My advice though would be to KEEP DOING THEM STUDIES! and do more if you can, whip out that pencil and don't worry sooo much about digital just yet. You need a really solid foundation before you go start exaggerating and being all abstract. Some things to focus on could be like anatomy, light, and form, Render using your pencil and concentrate on the values and where your light source is, work on you line work and so on. Remember that Andrew Jones understands his fundamentals Knows what colours to use and where to place them, that understanding is what makes him stand out.
anyways hope the rant helped, best of luck!
Those postcards are supersweet Tom! Love how they work as a set also.
From here on you might want to play around with the compositon thou. My main concern is that they are very "busy", and you have almost no negative space, which in turn makes your positive space stand out less. So, try and leave some space unworked/empty maybe.
(Im just guessing here, but give it a shot )
I appreciate the creativity, you have more than just the run of the mill concept artist. I really like the sketches. I love when sketches over lap each other, its kind of like you had to get it on paper, doesn't matter where! I love your art... its jaw dropping even. The force is strong with this one. Please keep showing me more illustrations =D
The studies look nice - don't stop doing them!
The Andrew Jones inspired stuff also looks cool but it won't save you from actually learning anatomy, lighting etc. It can be a good idea to look at more than one artist's work or doing master studies, studying different styles and trying to figure out what makes a good painting successful.
Keep it up!

wowzer i had a mad weekend, shell island in the UK is wierd and wonderful, ive ot some stuff to scan in but i cba right now. i just finished a 30 minute exercise in photoshop photostudy, not very accurate but building my techniques is the main issue in this exercise.
I really enjoy watching the sketches improve - I would offer the idea of integrating the things you learned from your anatomical sketches into your creature/ monster ideas. ( if said creature has to move interact with an environment that humans can traverse, they respond to physics like most animals - walk, hop or slither)
I thrive on deadlines, & I am looking for work!
WIP, just wanted to use my new purchase of CS5 for the first time, i gotta say im loving it apart from the fact my brush keeps releasing strokes without pen pressure activated when it should be. again i might be arsed to update my traditional stuff later
