Cool design man, it was cool watching you paint.
Darn, I would have loved to see how you created this. Cool costume! I have problems clothing people in anything fantastic. In my world everyone wears one-coloured Tee-Shirts and cargo shorts/pants.
Your SB is way beyond mine keep being awesome.
Nice updates! loving whole post #349, those Jamie Jones studies are nice man, great environments on post #352, keep 'em coming!
Psychobuddy - Thanks man
Eternal apprentice - The painting is saved on the stream you can watch it there I linked it in the post before the painting
Gpozzo - Thankingz you
Tef - Thankz Tef :3
Ok so for the past while I've been trying to push my work in terms of confidence in values and strokes, be more attentive to a narrative and pretty much deciding its time to get things moving in a more interesting way. Another thing I want to tackle is interest in compositions and angles which Craig Mullins does so well ive been looking at that a lot but that is for later.
For now here is stuffz:
- 2 quick environment things trying to be less scared of paint
- A quick study
- random little sandstorm doodle thing
- Drawing from imagination
- Moleskins from life
- Environment from imagination experimenting with light
- Figurative Illustration from imagination trying to create something more meaningful and polished spent a couple days on this nad relatively happy with it.
And thats about it for now.

K so mainly pencil stuff from life here, some figure studies and char design from imagination to finish the last page of my sketchbook, I did a rough design digital first, ended up with a better weight distribution than the pencil but whateverrr. Then latest painting, some bits of it im happy with i spose, hopefully happy with the next one.
Huge improvement from first pages, mate. Less sketchy boobs and more precise designs. Inspiring gallery, keep it up.
BTW, last pic in post #369 is your best one so far, hands down.

So its been kind of a slow week or so, been dealing with thangsss. Things will be picking up again from now on. So here we have:
- sketches from life and imagination
- env studies
- Snow env
- Dragon hunt thing
- Late night character sketch
Theres going to be a lot more stuff coming like I said had some stuff going on so a little sluggish last week or so #excuses
dood your enviros are too much!! the last three look great! the last character design is sick...only thing is his head seem disproportionate to me? i dont know it might just be me? and yeah it would be nice to get some more of your opinion in my sb! :b
RV - Thanks man! Really glad you like
Kevinnn_ - Ye man the heads a little funny thanks for pointing out I'll get in your sb just now and see whats been going on :3
Sam - That is all I can ask for :3
So heres some fun facts about whats been happening lately. So I applied to Art School last year after leaving my course and got in. I was really nervous about whether it would be making good use of my time or not and how out there it would be and I found myself really, relleh not enjoying it. So I have decided the best path forward is definitely to study independently full time, focused training no distractions. So thats what I've been doing as of the past week, it feels great in a scary way to have no illusion of a safety net or anything. I have to make it or else go home so going to be doing a lot of studies and leveling things up and getting a folio together and looking for some work soon. Just thought i'd post this here for anyone whos interested and for myself to refer back to at a later time of this stage.
SO ANYWAY heres some stuff I've been doing lately :
- Sam Carr's November sketchbook challenge, a page a day. Here is pages 1-8, pages 1-3 are imagination rest are studies.
- Random sketch
- Composition and colour thumbnails (Really need to work on this)
- Some fleshed out environments
- Portrait sketch from head
- Tried to do a less fantasy type illustration
- Sand Shark.
- Nov 1st Self Portrait
- Bandit Character Concept sheet
And that's all for now. x
