Another Loomis study
Digital this time, would have been too messy with pencil
Yo, great improvement , man. Keep up the studies, but dont forget to do stuff from head from time to time : D
I've actually been forcing myself to do studies since I find it more enjoyable to doodle. But I really need the kind of knowledge that can only be acquired through studies.
Here's a doddle I quite like so far. Could be very challenging to finish, though.
so many figures ....
I was on a class trip so I didn't get to do much but I tried to do some scuplting
with Zbrush! These are my first 2 sculpts. (+one rushed sketch)
I saved the first one as a document because I'm dumb. The second one I did after watching a few tutorials.
All from imagination
I'm usually pretty happy with my colours but when it comes to fundamentals I'm still lacking in anatomy.
I've been watching some of Dave Rapoza's videos on youtube and they have been a major eye opener for me!
I really need to work on my visual storytelling.
Here's a pretty quick painting 2-3 hours maybe, no refs
I don't particularly like Bridgeman to be honest.
His figures have always seemed a little dumpy and crude to me and I definitely prefer Loomis
but I still appreciate what he has done for figure drawing.
Here's two quick sketches. I'm trying to do sort of an action scene and
I don't really like it so far. meh
i like the mood of the last two.
What u could do on the 2nd one to improve it:
- blur/unsharp whats out of focus and sharpen/give more details whats the focus.
- give more contrast between the sizes of the figures and dragon, place the vanishing point behind the figure to give a better focus
for the first one the same applies. Whats farther away is blurrier.
Hope it makes anysense
Hm sehe grade das du aus Deutschland kommst, nächstes mal dann in deutsch .
nice sketchbook, keep it up my friend

AWESOME SB! *subscribes
i like those facial structure studies and muscles too, also a really like your lighting choices in alot of your imagination pieces keep it up man!
Thanks for the crit!
I scrapped the second one. I tried changing the perspective and it still just wasn't working.
Auch viele Grüße von mir
Thanks! I will, hopefully more regularly than I do now
Thanks a lot!
I know I haven't updated in forever. The last month or two have been quite busy for me.
Seeing as I'll graduate in 5 months and finals are coming up I might not be able to be super productive in the next few months.
I just made a cghub account: xelar.
As I said I didn't get the chance to paint a whole lot but here's a quick hobbit inspired elf painting and a Rise of the Guardians fanart sketch
Thanks! sry you had to wait so long ^^
Haven't posted anything in a while because I scrapped some shitty paintings I started.
Here's a new one and I'm actually quite happy with it. The face is vaguely referenced.
I know this is really similar to one of Juan Jias paintings but I guess thats what happens when you
have it as your desktop background.
still planning on finishing the fanart thingie but that might take some time...
I've peeped through your sketchbook and oh maaan there's some great improvement. I know a lot of people have already said it, but the way you work with color is just amazing. I just wanted to say thank you for the inspiration. Need to work harder!
Thanks a lot! Right now I don't really feel like i'm improving so that's nice to hear^^
Thanks! I find colour to be pretty easy compared to poses and perspective, atleast the way I approach it. Meaning I just use all the colours of the rainbow and call it a day.
The first one is actually a couple of months old and I finally decided to finish it.
Very Bao Pham inspired, I had one of his paintings as my phone background for ages and it rubbed off.
The rise of the guardians fanart still isn't finished, I feel kinda meh about it.
It's pretty boring and the colour scheme is too monochrome, I think
v nice studies!
plz visit my sketchbook again, I'd love you to do a quick paint over if you have time
Good progress so far. Your use of values is especially improving. Are you using a lot of color dodge or some effect brush like that? Some of the saturated glowy colors look that way, in any case it might be wise to paint a couple of pieces without it, and see how you could portray light using other techniques. Maybe you already have done it and it's a stylistical choice, in which case feel free to ignore this. Anyway good work and keep it up!
To echo what R-K said, the new update is too heavy on the dodge/burn effect. If you could take a few steps back towards what you previously had, that would improve the piece. The values look stronger in that one. Also, his hand is on the large side, either scale it back or make his head a bit bigger, and the background could use some love!
Hope this helps man. All the best!
You're definitely right, sometimes the colours get too saturated and it's a little overbearing
I actually don't really use dodge or burn but looking back at it the contrast is a little too high.
I was trying to distort the perspective with the hand a little bit but it didn't really work so it looks kinda big^^
I haven't updated in forever because I was busy with finals and my university application.
I'm done with school now and I'm planning on studying Game Design.
Hopefully I can post more frequently now!
