I love the concepts in your pencils I'd just love to see some of them more finished.
amazing digital figure paintings, wonderful colors! The panorama of students drawing is brilliant too.
You might want to try drawing with a sharper pencil though. Try letting one line speak for the contour, instead of throwing away so many lines. Your ink and paint stuff has a wonderful economy to it, why not carry that into your graphite work?
god damn.. love love love
Nice stuff, I'll familiarize myself with em so I can find you in the warwick
Digital sketches from a medieval-themed costumed figure drawing party last night:
Thanks for the comments and tips, everyone
Oaksford, the digi sessions were 20 minutes to an hour and a half.
Keith Eager, thanks. I think the problem is the rough paper too, my pencils are pretty sharp. Still looking for an ideal sb, moleskines are too slick and make my pencils look greasy, and handbooks have everything going for them except the paper's too rough... I'll keep the economy thing in mind though
I've got more trad. sketches but I gotta find my usb cord -_- I'll post em soon!
Hey girl, wassup? Glad too see you're still dropping some crumbs here for us
Seriously though, your rapid progress and down-to-earth personality are an inspiration to this trooper *sniff*
I'm gonna hafta give that Sketchup a try. You should really post some of your 3d in this thread, just to show people how it informs your process.
sketchbook...a kitten dies every time you don't comment
“When forced to work within a strict framework,
the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
the work is likely to sprawl.”
- TS Eliot
For some reason I think I've not stopped by your sketchbook, so I just did and it rocks! Keep posting as you can
Here's a bit of a dump.
BludHund: Since you asked...
These are some of my Sketchup models... I'm using the guns in a character painting, and the hospital room thing is one of the backgrounds I modelled for a comic project... It's the only model from that project that looks any good, unfortunately
Random sketches I kinda liked:
From Gallery Girls (that aforementioned medieval themes costumed figure drawin partay) (there was a real life high fantasy style dwarf there!):
From Tuesday night head painting:
Monday night long pose:
Wow. The first and last digipaintings are money. I really like them. Um, the life drawings (I suppose they are) are also great. Keep going hardcore.
lovely lovely stuff ,the sketch up models are looking boss , love the hospital room, and the guns, the Digital life paintings are also looking great , all in all very inspirational. Thanks for posting.
Oh man, your sketches are amazing as usual. Miss you. Hope to see you tomorrow!
I wish my figures were as expressive as yours. Your quite good.
My sketchbooks. Don't be nice. Be honest.
My main Sketchbook!
Nice Sketchup rifle... Pretty complex for SU!
Looking good. Could maybe try to force in some shading....just some simple/quick hatches to get some form and sense of depth in here. But other than that, I have no complaints.
Thanks, Sergio. Trying to get to those Saturday sessions more, hope to see you around Won't be there this week though -_-
Here I drew my desk while I was calibrating the monitors... If you look closely, Bomba's foot is there, hiding behind some cords
These are from the bus this week so far. The girl whose back and seat I drew was talking to a foreign dude like he was retarded for having an accent... "I lived in Sweden for a while, do you know where that is? Verrry far away." Poor guy got off before I got to him though.
Damn ipods, I'm going to be crippled - I only ever get practice with ears with damn buds in them.
Bus was empty when I rode home tonight so these ones are made up and crappy... Even tried to draw my old dog from memory (depressing! I misses her). I promise she was cuter than that.
good lookin' , although his torso is looking a little thin in comparison to his thighs/legs. I throughly enjoy your posts hope you continue to post as you can
awesome stuff! i have yet to try it though :/ something about the Bart and busses make me sleepy haha. The life drawing stuff is awsome,makes me wish i looked over more! Anyways,awesome update ! cant wait to see more.
nonie work hard. make big progress.
Your gestures and ornamental environment work are lovely!
Went to the San Francisco Zoo with me sketching friends!
I freaking loved drawing the bears (polar, black, and grizzlies) and rhinos... The rhinos moved a lot though! I was surprised to learn they kind of moo like cows. And the one tiger they had out moved too much to get any good sketches either :/ Happily, none attending were mauled or killed!
Love the way you draw, with minimum amount of line maximum result.
just echoing in i like the linework thing you are doing right now. or should i say, i like the fact that you are concentrating on it. theres sooooo much to be learnt from working in that stripped down, strictly contour type way i think. the sketch crawl ones in particular are stand outs to me. you are doing great work right now nonie. keep keepin it.-c36
Dished! Dunno how I missed your comment last update - it was cool hanging out! I get sleepy on public transit too if I'm not drawing, but sketching wakes me up... otherwise I'd miss my stop all the time.
Flutic, Skeiff, thanks so much
Coro - yeah, I'm kind of zoning in on line for a while, I've been really into it... I do a lot of rendering at work so it's nice to go out and practice quicker stuff.
Craig, thanks dude, it was super fun Hope everything's been well for you
Kinda quick (4.5 hours or so) enviro inspired by the zoo sketching:
3-hour figure session tonight... Trying something different:
Looking good here nonie. I had typed up a response to your previous post but it didn't go through (obviously). So I'll try to remember what it was and type it here.
I have to agree with Coro about your lines. People don't pay enough attention to lines and many just go through the process of making their line work better. Lines teach so much more than eye candy. You learn patience, control, the ability to make marks according to what you are actually seeing, and let's not forget, it teaches you to appreciate the marks and finished piece (if only just a sketch).
On your last update, the bear enviro looks great, just clean up the piece a bit (get rid of those straggling lines). On the woman sitting, maybe work on the shadows a bit more, looking a bit chaotic.
