Your pencil and pen skills are, to me, much much better than your digital painting skills. Some drawings like the woman in post 5 and a lot of stuff in post 21 are so nice than it seems a shame to cover them up with the airbrush tool. My advice would be to steer clear of the airbrush, go for some hard brushes and render in a style similar to your traditional media pieces here.
Thanks, Monster tree.
I'm not using the airbrush tool on any of these. I start with hard edge brushes and eventually move into blending, but if the effect I'm getting with the tools I use give that impression, I'll definitely want to revisit my current technique. Most of this is experimental, though. I'll keep practicing.
I hadn't thought of bringing my pen and pencil drawing and sketching techniques into the computer. They seem like entirely different animals that only work on paper. I don't have enough control with line work using a tablet yet to simulate that kind of stuff, but It's worth trying. Maybe I can blend the two.
Thanks. Here's another work in progress.
Thanks. My teaching job keeps me busy. Hard to find time to just paint for fun. I'm able to squeeze in a few hours of sketching on public transit and figure drawing every week.
What'up man...takin'a look around.You'r' good in diferent media..nice pencil(or ink)work and nice digital stuff.keep going!

Thanks. The next step for me is getting more proficient with digital sketching in a more spontaneous and expressive way. Here's some recent stuff:
I like pencils, except that they smudge easily, and fixative makes me dizzy. I'm working on an acrylic medium spritzing solution and/or applicator. Here are a couple more. Another thing I want to work on is expression. Everyone looks so blah...
Aye again, Euray. Your concepts, techniques, and thorough execution of spontaneous sketching has really begun to come to fruition. The latest batch from the breadbin bear a life of their own - a living quality that the viewer can visualize in movement.
Expressionism - A movement of the arts that emphasizes subjective expression of the artist's inner experiences. What you experience, the character experiences. You are the character - the character is the artist's inner form.
Keep doing you
The first of your digital roughs gives off a sense of longingness. The way I interpret it is that the woman is an Indian sitting inside of a tree trunk or atop a hammock, and around her is the chaos of otherworldly foreigners corrupting the environment around her. I'm looking forward to the final version.
Thanks for the feedback. Interesting take on the image. Sorry, but I can't delete and resize/post the other one. I've tried a couple of times but there's a glitch. Sorry for the overs-sized image small screen people.
A page of notes from Reveleations. It's funny how I started drawing dark, morbid stuff as soon as I sat down at my first presentation. I have a lot of typed and written notes to digest...
fun with life drawing and studying Hogarth. His book on heads has one of the most beautifully realized surveys of the diversity of human heads and features out there. I photocopied and clipped out some of his drawings months ago and recently pasted them in my sketchbook to practice from.
l love the last some portraits~ that's nice~

Thanks Skorpi and Gardener!

A recent finished piece. Feedback welcome.
Heya Nice SB! I'm impressed
I have no constructive comments besides the fact that it would be better if you use the ATTACHMENT MANAGER.
keep it up
