Hey, nice work here. I like your variety in styles. A couple of the pictures didn't show up, by the way. Keep going. Let's see more.
Sup lohan, great stuff. YOur sketches are very nice indeed, so fluent. lol i get my girlfriend to pose for me aswell, saves going to a life class post more soon please. Bye
wow, i hope im that good when im 19, keep it up, make sure i don't catch up with you, ever, never ever
Hehe! I know that ref.
It's about time you started a sketchboat.
yeah i noticed that I-no likeness when i saw it in the teen challenge thread. its a nice piece something funky going on in the neck area you have good lines but your painting could use some work in places color schemes being one of the things in particular.
first, the color. pretty terrible. hair is very difficult for me in color. but its a step in the right direction i suppose.
trickynick1001- thanks! i think i fixed the image/images.
Prophet- i usually have to trick my girlfriend into posing for me or bargain with her. she hates it.
miguel- i love you thanks.
Andy P- thanks for crit- it is flat. i get a headache after going over details in a piece for so long so i think i missed that
Pixeldragoon- sketchboat coming soon. its going to be awesome. we'll sail around the world sketching all of the landscapes.
tie- yeah i realized the similarity to that character about halfway into the initial sketch but i just said screw it. i did actually try to not do skulls as that was very blatant but i couldnt think of anything as cool hehe.
luxun- thanks, i constantly here i should improve my color scheme but i have NO idea how to go about doing that... i study art history a lot so you think that would help but i just suck at it. i think part of the problem is when i envision a piece i always think of it in terms of black and white and lines... maybe if i first started thinking of a piece in terms of color and value.. shit i think i answered my own question haha. now the hard part.
I really like your sketching style Lohan. Your digis are really improving. Im enjoying those last two color portrait studies.
Figures seem to be your strong point. I especially like the form you show on the hands. Getting some good values too. Keep working on the digital stuff, its looking promising. I think you might need more personality in some of your eyes though. Sometimes they look like theyre staring into nothingness.
did you do these straight in Biro? shows a lot of confidence to do that. your linework is on a higher level than your photoshop skills, which im sure your aware off, and your obviously working on that. I need to take a leaf outta your book and practice more in traditional stuff.
i read in a jason manley interview that he would stop movies and draw them. i thought it was a good idea so i broke out the Park Chan-wook movies tonight and started doing this. a lot of them were bad but here are some of the few better ones.
Jake + blanq- thankyou sirs.
Prophet- Yes, biro is my best friend. i like the immediacy and smoothness.
now back to sympathy for mr vengeance and more studies.
Can you give me some of those nude ref's you are using? For some reason I have trouble finding really good ones for drawing...
your output is very solid man, great lifedrawings too, sometimes there is some proportion issues and perspective issues but nothing major. i reallu like your way of tackling hands and feet.
Ok good lines, i reckon you could work on your rendering skills, traditional and Digital, im sure you will benefit from both.
