awesome landscape. I don't know if you'll agree with me but don't you think with llandscapes, the best way to approach it is to stay loose and keep only the edges and colors/values in mind? not so much on the shapes since nature is very organic.Originally Posted by darkwolfb87
I'm surprise this thread only has 2 pages since it's a very good idea.
Kind of a like a big class and the individual SSG's are the.....individual groups.
Jarri: wonder woman! Jim lee draws a hell of a WM. Her hair needs a bit more volume for me and the cranium is a wee too small.
here's my fav from last week.
darkwolf - great landscape, next time pay attention to use the value range in your composition, generally make the foreground darker for more depth, although the other way around can also create good focus.
supperman - nice car, get rid of the blue lines, makes it look unfinished!
master 25 days - Like the girl, has nice attitude to her. 2 things i noticed is that the shadow from her right heel is too high up, and her right shoulder seems a tad detached, bring it closer into the body.
Heres something i finished recently for my montreal portfolio. Original is 14x17 inches
and a closeup
Damn Darkwolf.. That is tight!
Great stuff everybody.. I´m glad this thread isnt all completely and all the way dead. Let´s give this undead thread some lovin!
My best of last week (after a loong hiatus)
@SirGreenSock: great drawing but i think that there could be more contrast - it mostly seems midtones right now. also everything seems well shaded except for the weapon, which probably should have sharp highlights (even if you're using a ref just use your artistic license). it doesn't seem like you've saved the paper either, it looks quite smudgy in some areas - it'd look more professional if some of those areas were cleaned up.
@talmir: the neck is a bit long, but otherwise nice, i like the colors.
it seems like everyone draws a really good finished piece while mine are just sketches ^^
best of mine this week:
although i like this one:
I really like your eyes Luvr (lol). Your renderings are coming along real nice these days too. I never get sick you baby!
Heres my best sketch of the week. Was fiddling around in OpenCanvas
that's a very well done sketch hpslash, what kind of phone is that? you draw cute girls well. are you going to the sketchgroup this sunday? I totally overslept so I had to go to 1 oclock mass. The fingers should converge toward the middle finger
sirgreensock: thx for the good eyes. I see a similiar problem in your drawing as well. The right upper arm is too long and the left arm is too short overall. I'm not sure how he can hold the weapon like that either. I think overall the composition would benefit if the weapon is leaning on his shoulder with his right hand in a lowered position so it's not cutting up the space between the girl and him so much.
@Kresh: Haha I never get sick of you either. do you work from dark to light? anyways i always think the way you handle light and colors are freaking awesome *sighs* from the eyes to the top of the head looks a bit long but i don't think you were going for perfect human anatomy ^^
@Master 25 Days: i've actually gone twice to the sketchgroup but very late and no one was there >.< so i suppose i'll call ahead this time to make sure haha. i suppose as long as both of us are there it'll make a "group".
i forget what kind of phone it is on the top of my head...isn't it the humongous nokia phone that comes free and that everyone had like...5 yrs ago? My brother offered me a razor before they were popular and i was like, "nah, i guess i don't need it", so he sold it on ebay for several hundred dollars. btw i drew from a mirror but i'll watch the fingers next time.
best from last week
hpslash: yeah I was going to get a razr but then I saw my friend took one out, and my other friend took one out, then some random guy took one out. I went to one of my friend's house, he just got the mail and guess what, it's a razr phone.
talmir: cool sketch. YOu gotta be careful how you draw the features from the bottom angle. We should see more nostril, less lower lip, more upper lip.
Hey I'd like to join this, my favorite drawing from this week:
I once drew a picture for the Queen of England, apparently it got lost in the mail, and my talent along with it.
My Sketchbook Check it Out!
Thanks for the crits everyone, helps a lot!
Favorite of this week, see you in Montreal!
3CH : An insane cyberpunk character riding a squid beside a plane carcass...
Talmir - nice style going on, watch the nose and eyes in relation to the structure of the rest of the head, getting skewed in there.
hpslashluvr - I like the sketch, the face has personality. Watch your hatching a bit more though, try to suggest the form as well as value, most of it seems ot be going in the same direction instead of descriving the form.
kresh - great sketch, love the moodiness. WOuld have liked to see it more finished, aside from the head the form is very unclear everywhere else, which makes it look unrefined.
master 25 days - love the colours and character! I think something is wrong with the placement of the head/shoulders/neck, maybe the clavicle should be defined or the back of the necklace to show the neck wrapping back around.
DarbusMaximus - Like the dog, watch the anatomy and proportions though, the snout seems misaligned compared to the eyes or vice versa.
my only one this week, so the best i guess...
hpslashluvr- really like that face, the emotion comes across perfect. Well done
ted- wonderful figure study
the only problem i see with that sketch is that maybe you could push the darks...there is a lot of midtones right now.
my best sketch:
darktwin: sweetness man. push more darks like hp said. Eyebrows should be higher, and his right nostril should be in shadow.
HP: very moody sketch, full of life. You could use more darks for her nose. The shading on the arms are a little too harsh.
good worrk everyone
We Live We create We DIE. thats an artists life on my eyes.
hi guys! this thread is really a great idea! I think this thread deserves to get updated again, so I decided to post a drawing too.
Sirgreensock: I love your last one!
hpslashluvr: nice drawing! liked her expression
Master25days: this is nice, but I think the legs are a bit to big
Here is mine:
Wow, these are some good figure drawing.
I can see the Imageshack links, but nothing else- yet. Nice job, Imageshackers.
I don't live near a zoo to draw from life, but did this today for a project.
Love this >
and the last figure you did ^
i like u work. it looks esthetic. The light is great.Originally Posted by Odds
Master 25 DayS the women is nice . But i think the proportionment has some problems.

HELLTAXI Great, the colour is very nice. I like it.
sabe2003I agree with u the colour,the dynamic
could any of you guys tell me how to post images in a sketchbook because I don't know how to do it, please help, send a message to grundybug( search for australian members and i'll be there.)
nice thread -- excellent stuff!
kinda boring, but best of this week so far. trying to memorize shading for "stylized" characters.
Thanks for the comments on my last piece guys!
Recent favorite, portrait of my roomate (HEROIC on the forums) in oils.
hp - great value study, though the faces have odd structure, cant tell if it was intended stylistically.
Wow, been dead for a while, hopefully it picks up again!
