Nice job on the WTF face. The shading is very solid. You should consider doing some perspective studies, that'll help with buildings.
626elemental thanks man I might hit up some perspective on the weekend
Walid D Yeah I really need to feel the form more.
YAY finally got my intuos 3, if i could i would make love to it.
Heres the latest self potraits, the second is WIP and is in real early stages of development, its going to be for a comp

Cool digitals! The nose in the first one is pretty damn sexy. The eyes look a too small though.
Try use a different pallete for the skin, with more variations in colours like some greens or purples.
bigfooTrooper Cheers man, its 6x11 since I have a widescreen monitor.
FraserMcT Yeah thanks man the eyes are a bit small and I do need more colours in my paints.
UGH chalks are hard
Also SP pretty much finished, also progress gif.
I hate pastels too. I haven't used really dry ones though, but that looks pretty good for a first. Feet are too small, and the one closest to us has some perspective issues.
Nice digi dude. You are coming on leaps and bounds. Main thing is that you need to get some cleaner edges, and work on hair
Cool though, keep up the studies.
FraserMcT Yeah those feet gave me a problem, Thanks for the advice
This is my first gouache, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to use it as a water colour or thick paint?. Anyway If you've noticed I've been drawing old people, they are sketches for a school project which I will eventually turn into a painting next week. All these drawings are scaled therefore out of my comfort area, I'm starting to get the concept down but as always there's a lot more work to do.
The thing about guoache, is that you can use it however the hell you want!
Try get more muted colours, this can be done loads of ways, such as adding the opposite colour.
Your sps are improving massivly, good job.
FraserMcT Cheers man really appreciate it
Heres my 1/3 major paintings for school (acrylic), its pretty much finished, only got a day and abit to work on it so its not what I want it to be :/. Also 2 sp's the others arent worth putting in here.
sorry for shitty photo.
Mr. Phil Mr Phil uncomfortably close to American sensation Dr Phil aha.
Yeah man daily sp's help quite a bit go for it, cheers.
Sp, the final for the painted sp and my very first oil paintings, all practice for my big oil painting for a competition later on.
I think I'm using too much turps :/
Verehin Thanks a lot man, I should be saying your pencils are amazing, which they are lol.
first study in a looooong time let alone applying what I learnt (I know suprising) made drawing my sp so much easier. Also some sp features I forgot to add be fore and a little colour study, need to do more of them.
Yeah I think you can probably tell from the studies and stuff, but you can avoid stiffness by playing with rotation and movement of the rib cage, and the shoulder and hip lines inverting. For instance, stand on one foot and see how your shoulder and hips sort of go like this > or < depending on which foot. This generally gives a sense of balance to your stuff. Try it out, and keep it up, you're doing great.
jesus man your really raising the bar, something for you to mulll over
when you paint, your painting the bright highlights and the dark shadows (core highlights core shadows)
when you draw, your only accounting for core shadows
your painting looks fucking amazing, your drawings not so much
said with love and respect, damn man raising the bar... rasing the pissing bar...
Hi! Thanks for your comment you left in my SB!
When I was listing through your sketchbook I told myself: "pretty good faces this man is drawing."
BUT when I came to the very end where your oil paintings is shown, my jaw fell down on the floor and I just told myself: "what the...? His THIRT oil an it's such fucking great!"
these are my words
Nrx Thanks a lot man , Yeah my sp drawings aren't so strong.. yet but I tried to push the values more these latest sp's hopefully it will get better.
Kalim Cheers man, really appreciate taking the time to look through, and don't worry more oils to eventually come
alrighty pretty big update I guess...
anyway here's all my sp's since last update, a page of imagination scribbles (getting more fun now), some designs that I was playing with for a tattoo design but they seem like more orientated to a shirt design, and a hand from life study to use for a later design and thats it.
GODDAMMIT the scanner raped the designs
Edit (posted wrong pic)
Most of these drawings(not sp's and neither the chick with the smiley) I showcased to my local tattoo shop, I also included my two latest paintings in the portfolio. They were pretty impressed and they want to introduce me to a guy who sells tattoo designs all around the country and in the states. They also wanted me to come in and watch them and eventually tattoo for them . It sure would beat working at K-mart. The great thing about it, it wont conflict with me attending high school.
If you cbf reading I'm just extremely happy.
niiice stuff man!, gottta love the smokin ape and your side-view-oil portrait! well done
congrats on that tatoo sutff! Id take that hands-outof-head dude right there!! haha, awesome!
now the last lady has a bit thick legs…at least thats what jumped to my mind!
keep doing what ya do. I like!
Mr. Phil Cheers man.
Finally I have updated, exams and school has been hectic, but 14 or so weeks left of this shit, then I can finally concentrate on art. I haven't posted everything I've done but its still shame full for this time, alas I have two weeks of holiday now which will consist of
Black swan potraiture competition
Yearbook diary cover
School major painting
Possibly painting for my brothers house
and just huge amount of drawing mixed with school study -_-.
Now these updates mostly consist of school drawings leading up to my painting and THAT DISGUSTING DRAWING OF FLIES IS SUPPOSED TO REFLECT ON DADA so dont go judging me ahaha.
Also the caricature is of my art teacher, apart of a series for the yearbook.
heya good work!
I saw your commended work (shaun tan thinger) in the library, fancy seeing you on here haha!
Walid D thanks man
Dile_ Thanks for dropping by, cheers.
spook- Its a small internet isnt it lol, what are the chances,. Lol i havent even gone up there to see it my self
Alright heres my second painting out of 3 for my major works for school and a drawing of ca's very own James Wolf.
The painting still needs a few touch ups but Im going to do them in my school time not on holidays. Water soluble oils are awesome.
WOW Aesome sp's, and all those digis rock!
Really great progress with the drawings as well, the studies really seem to be helping heaps, so keep em' up!
And that last painting is amazing! I'd buy it! Dig the blue back light!
Not much of an update for such an absence but school has been majorly hectic since its my last year and I finish in a month and a bit. After school though I can finally focus on my art, should be awesome .
So heres my last major painting for school and also some teacher caricatures I did for the yearbook.
Btw I didn't win the cover competition, meh.
