this is where we are... do you want to push it more or should I just go for finishing it completely?
i'm pretty exhausted today, so just a few sketches,
one train ride sketch, a couple IDW ideas, COW idea, and anatomy stuff . . .
Try using larger opaque brushes on your digital stuff to begin with, on stuff like #453 in the photostudy, some of the values are getting muddy because of the opacity pen pressure.
Don't get too sad about not being productive because it happens to everyone, what matters is that you get back up and start producing again!
Ho-ho-ho, now you have a machine gun, I know.
Cause you are obviously improving, and all the hard work,
sacrificed free time, blood and sweat is coming down to a
wonderful results. Never say die is becoming a cliche to you,
blowing of ants and flies from your shoulder, getting up from
mud, escaping from evil, becoming the blissful future.
Your studies are not regular studies, they are an extraordinaire
de la chute. Something that leaves a mark and remembrance.
A big granite carved stone will be raised in the future, under
the newly reformed republican laws, and your name and deeds
will be carved in there. Local civilians and military forces
will watch and read for decades and for centuries.
Your legacy will live forever.
thank you for the moral boost guys!!!
what a freaken hellish month, seems like i gotta try twice as hard to get
back where i once was. . . .
Hey there, loads of output here, and some neat designs too.
Something that I'm noticing about your work is your paints lacks a strong value structure. I would spend more time grasping a better understanding of light and form before I focus on color.
Your figure work is not bad but it could be a lot better. How often do you draw from life? I see you do some bridgeman studies but those kinds of studies without drawing the figure from life will not help you as much as when you do both. Your figures from imagination will improve dramatically. Watch your line work too, in some of your drawings there are parts where the lines are inappropriately thick. How fast do you tend to draw? Practice drawing slowly and carefully for a while and really think about what you are drawing and where and how you want to place the next mark.
Keep up the momentum!
Rob Powell: forever and always when i can!!!!
Mr. Pryminista: drawing from life almost never, some times after scanning i think i push the
levels to dark, but yeah line weight is something i experiment with, drawing speed
sometimes it varies, but i do spend many hours on random things, thanks for you comments.
speedy 1 hour still life before shooting off to work. . . .
haha you still have that car!!! does it still work?
burning some lead off...
scratching the single ply. ..
scribbling the scribbles
trying to find the secrets in those hand movements
where are those secrets to those improvements.
i seek, seeking one
only to hope, to find something. . . . .
you will spend your life seeking one, the one thing that will save you in times of hardness, the one that will guide you through tough times! don't give up! i know you!! and you're strong!
Hellou fellow, thanks for stopping by and giving some boost, now it's my turn :p have not much advices, i went through your sketchbook and more of your work is done digitaly, i like your ideas, but i would suggest you, do more observational drawing from life and start bringing form into your concepts.
What have you done up till now is great but it's missing something, how about sacrifice the time spended doing these concepts and transfer it to observational d, just for month and then, come back to your favorite workout and see the effect. Keep it up, keep it up!

You and only you, with your own sincere self-discipline, and effort, can make yourself an artist.
Very nice improvement - keep it up!
I would agree with skMOP. Less low opacity brushes, and more 90, or even 100% ones. Just trying it by myself in order to cure my heavy soft brushes addiction, and it really opening the eyes
Your studies are looking awesome man. Noticed a lot of them in the Community activities thread.
hey, great to see you're still keeping up the daily drawing,
may i give 1 advice though.
you need to slow down, plan your facial planes (or whatever you're drawing) first, the faces at the moment have no real definition to them because they are just elongated circles
also, work on your values, do more stuff in black and white, your digital stuff are muddy because the background and foreground just blends together too well
just my 2 cents!
Dear Creator in heaven
have mercy on me
let me live long enough
not to die of poverty or get blown away by
those that conspire to steal our souls
but let me live long enough
to learn to draw
to learn to live in serenity.
tons more sketches i did for this weeks spartan training camp found here:
wanted to try this one for some time now, to bad i hardly have time this week
