Hey scrubs. Start updating your sketchbook, and link to it in your sig, man!
Warming up after more than a week without drawing!
Yay, page four!
I had a lot of fun today when I realized I didn't have to please anyone with my sketches and drawings except for myself. That this sketchbook is for me, though you are allowed to see it. I think I've lost a lot of my fear. And here are some sketches I did in OpenCanvas.
Hey man, good studies. I like that street samurai drawing. It looks like you could
use some larger brushes in you digital stuff. Post 182, that's a great philosophy
to have for your sketchbook, keep it up.
But since you have a sketch book, it is for other people to view, and critique your drawings. Sure it's just for you, the point of posting is to get feed back and improve. You don't look very confident in your line work, or colors yet! you could go more in depth with studys on anatomy and the color theory. Would really push your drawings alot further, even drawing more from ref also, i have to agree with Pyroclasm00 about widening up your brushes watch the brush economy it would help liven up your drawings.
Uhm... Yes, that's what I said. Well, I didn't say anything about critique but I figured people would understand that. Seeing as we're on CA.org after all.But since you have a sketch book, it is for other people to view, and critique your drawings
Thanks for the crits. They are appreciated. That goes for you too, Wasker.
Hi Hai, i see you have worked more on that blond girl, that's good! But overall I still think you should put a little more in each drawing.
One idea I could give you in your characters work is to make ink lines above your pencils, that way you would be re-drawing it again and it would come out much better, I think it would also be a different exercise from what you normally do and all you need for that is one or two thin black markers and a rubber.
About these last pencils I think one of the problems I see is that every line has the same weigth, try using thiner lines also and smoother shading.
Anyway, the important is that you keep working!
Well done on your first year of SB!
I think i agree with most that has been said recently (even though i only read a few of the replies, so....). I honestly think that you have made some serious improvement especially in the torso part of the anatomy. Every so often you thrown in a really good forearm or leg as well. however, and i might have said this before, you don't seem to take what you do from one to the other and that is a shame cause i certainly do not hope that you feel like you are relearning it with every drawing. it should feel like a progression.
However i DO strongly advise you finish more of your drawings and move on to the next one. That ha seriously been my biggest problem in the last few years and it has held me waaaay back. Try to do your best every time (of course) but don't get too anal about it. You will come back soon after you fisnihed and say "oh shyte wish i had that that more like this" and that is exactlly what you will do in your next drawing or painting. And so on and so forth! LOL
Anyway congrats and keep up the great work. (i promisse not to let the week finish without up dating, even if it is only one like you said! )
Very nice sketchbook, hai from your name I deduct that you're studying japanese as well, eh?
In any case, keep going strong, because I really like what I see here. You've some great expressions in your characters. Reminds me I ought to work on my own... my sketchbook is so desolate...
Haha, I wish! Nah, I didn't even know if "hai" was chinese or japanese... Or both! I've always been fascinated by chinese and japanese culture and history.Very nice sketchbook, hai from your name I deduct that you're studying japanese as well, eh?
Yes, update! And link to it in your signature so people won't have to search for it.Reminds me I ought to work on my own... my sketchbook is so desolate...
Excellent! Dynamic pose, balance in the figure, good colorscheme and porportions. Much of it indicated which is a good thing. Leaves room for the imagination. Weakest part is the shoes, think it is because you havent outlined it the same way as the rest of figure.
Nice. Watch out for the black lines in the eye. Hair isnt flowing enough, just lying there like a hat.

Your sculptures are interesting, I must say. Don't give up on the dragon, I can see it turning out real nice!
Pardon for being such an inactive slowpoke. I shall seek for betterness master
Ohh, I love sculpting, despite haveing done it so few times. It feels so much more natural than drawing and painting. I'd love to work with sculptures when the time comes for me to specialise in my education. ENOUGH ABOUT ME!!!
What kind of clay are you useing? Is it Fimo? Don't have much experience with that kind myself. I gave super sculpey a try once, and it was excellent. If the oppurtunity arrives I'd sugesst you give it a try. Dont know if you can find a retailer in Norway, I ordered mine through the internet.
Thanks! And I won't be giving it up - it's schoolwork, so I couldn't even if I wanted to.Your sculptures are interesting, I must say. Don't give up on the dragon, I can see it turning out real nice!
When I first got into sculpting, I searched for Super Sculpey. I found this guy: http://www.sculpey.com/scripts/distr...Subject=NorwayWhat kind of clay are you useing? Is it Fimo? Don't have much experience with that kind myself. I gave super sculpey a try once, and it was excellent. If the oppurtunity arrives I'd sugesst you give it a try. Dont know if you can find a retailer in Norway, I ordered mine through the internet.
But I decided to try Fimo first (yes that is fimo I'm using) since they sell that at Panduro, and I've never felt the need for getting anything else. Now I don't know about sculpey, but the quality of fimo varies greatly with each pack. It's really important to squeeze the packs a bit in the shop so you find a soft one, but if you do, it's a lovely medium.
