heya Lav! im not sure if i have commented in here before, but im long overdue to give you a comment in your book, since your like, my one fan. hehehe, thanks for all the love btw. your too kind.
as for your work here, i love those comics! random, but hilarious nonetheless. also, your figure work is coming along. i like how you rendered the pencil sketches on the previous page. i think it was on tan paper or something, but you should try that style some more when you approach your figure work. it feels more natural than the comic-style. also, you should try some anatomy studies out, bridgeman, or loomis or something. but, great work Lav, keep em coming!
Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all the feedback and learn a lot from it so really thanks!
I'll be looking forward to update more frequently now and with much more studies as well!
For now i tried to get back to the basics but somehow ended up with this mess >.<
Hey! Nice variety of work here :) Looks like you like to try everything. I really like those sketches of girls for your project! seems like you know a bit of anatomy. Keep posting!
I like your comics! they warm my little heart. you just need some more expressiveness in your facial expressions. exaggerate, go nuts!
(also cannot believe I am not subscribed to this. PROBLEM SOLVED)
thanks temperowka and gutts :D I'll be doing more studies.
Tho i have to declare those 30 second pose drawing unLavable! i just suck at it so badly even when i try a longer time, it's horrible!! So just gonna do some other studies where i can take my time i guess
this suckyness level is over ninethousaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand!!!
Keep up all the hard work dude! Lots of studies in here and they are definitely paying off. I'd reccomend as much life drawing as possible, places like book stores and cafes can be great to draw people as a lot of the customers tend to sit still for long periods of time.
Cool to see you're also starting with the studies, great :D.
So many figure studies! Jumping to something else is a good idea, I totally agree.
Let the update come! xD
thanks metal fingers, i think i wouldnt be good at live drawing (the more reason to do it tho) because i tend to draw slow (am easely distracted :P) but i'll try it more often
and yup lyno, more studies will be coming soon (more stuff in general as well :p)
and creusa, thanks for checking out my sb, here's the update! :3
small update, nothing serieus :P i'll get back to my studies soon
digital version of it, trying to get some host of a show convinced to let me win a comic of the week :p
nice lighting in that last one Lav! maybe add some lighting on the floor around her, or some sort of cast shadow, i think that will really help make her feel planted on the ground. also, i love that perspective study up there. i think its 4 or 5 point perspective. that shits hard to do! nicely done!
yes...you caught me redhanded in my lazyness :( :p
does the shadow in this update look semi k? I'm not very pleased with how the head on the belt looks but oh well, it's hard to draw people you've only seen on a show a few times :P
And yes the perspective is 4 point, 5 point is a glass bowl effect i think, or something wierd, it looked confusing :P The 4 point isn't really difficult tho, it's just messy to draw, i think i'm gonna do a new one in the future tho
haha BRUTAL! yea, the shadows are looking good Lav, but they are fairly general, maybe go back in and try to tighten up some of the areas. you have some nice shapes in the shadows, but some areas could be cleaned up a bit. the cast shadow looks good. and the head on the belt reads well, but to clean it up maybe you could highlight some hair strands that are tied up in the belt, so that it looks more like its tangled into the belt. but shes looking pretty bad ass so far. keep working on it though, this has potential to be pretty gnarly!
Thanks, i'd suggest you to study more technical anatomy, where the muscles attach and stuff. especially with pencil, the same time you can also draw faces and hands.
Btw, nice perspective on post 217.
Hi Lav, you've really been updating frequently which is great. I do agree with Metal Fingers that doing as much life drawing is still beneficial. Even if you don't like the way your drawings look, it doesn't really matter. It's not like you are showing them to anybody or putting them in your portfolio. Drawing gestures is a good way to warm up and it forces you to draw the bigger shapes first. I ended up finding this blog on anatomy that I think you might like. It really breaks the figure down in simple shapes. You should def check it out. I should look at it more too.
@nickybeats, i'm not sure i know what you mean. I basicly took the general shape of the figure, copied it and played a little with it to use as background, but it needs more detail?
I'm thinking about doing more brutal chicks tho now that you mention it, they're fun to do :p but gonna leave that specific one alone for now, it was just made for a joke, got some more studies to focus on for now
@heix33, thanks, i'll be doing more studies :)
@Istmin25, i'll try to get over my fear and try to do more life drawings (i'll become that one creepy kid that stares obsesivly at people ಠ_ಠ) and thanks a lot for that link, looks very interesting! I'll do them once i get my charcoils back
crappy update for now, atm i'm trying to do some bridgman (which i find a lot more fun than loomis actually) with aquarel (not sure if that a good diea or not) because i really need to learn how to work with waterpaint, so hopefully you'll see a lot of those in the future!
Great variety of studies.
Your progress is evident and I love those perpective studies, so cool
Imo you surely deserve a star (4 - good ) from me. I'll change it later when you improve :)
love that with the decapitated heads :D awesome work, her feet need a little work though, it's probably the shape's a bit too round (if that makes any sence), i like the dark colors & bloody stains :) nice work on the studies too, keep up the good work :)
hi,Great studies!very nice works!keep it up!
Hey, hey, keep chugging out great stuff :) It doesn't matter how slow you go as long as you're going...
I love this so much! Anything that has more than 3 points always confuses me, haha.
I got an interesting tip from a friend who studies architecture, thought I'd share it here. When drawing cubes, start from the back (not the 'middle line')... apparently you can't go wrong that way.
oh hai there!
@sweron, whaaa? nah i don't think this really deserves that, but thanks a lot, it's def a boost to hear that :P will do my best to improve :)
@miycko, yeah i wasnt sure about the feet either but i thought if they're suppose to be shoes then i could get away with it, guess not :p but thanks
@LAL, thank you :) i checked out your sketchbook as well and was very impressed, so thanks for stopping by
@Donna, yeah i guess you're right about the 'It doesn't matter how slow you go as long as you're going' :) I don't understand why many of you find that perspective cube good tho, i thought it was crap :p tho i'll try to do some new perspective work soon. I never tried to start at the back before but gave it a try and i now see what he means, it's a good tip, thanks :)
and zomg what is this i see? i joined your awesome squad?! i'm so honoured :} thanks :hugsmile:
Here are some bridgman studies, done in aquarel, just to get used to the strokes (it's much fun so far :))
Those aquarelic strokes are high quality!
Its always a pleasure to see your work.
Also, if you ever pass by brussels we should meet and sketch :)
Hi Lav, really great studies. How I would approach Bridgman is, use him more to study the form of the figure rather then anatomy. Use an anatomy book to study the muscles and look at Bridgman for the form.
Good luck :).
Hey hey, just keeping the track of awesome people ;)
Bridgman looks so fun to study. I'll have to get his books.
Try to change up the lineweighth even more so that the lines you draw are very different. Are the Bridgeman studies from imagination?
He Lav! Wassup?!
you were doin so good with the study's!
To bizzy with school I guess?
Enjoy the freedom, whe your done with the exams its time to kick ass and start drawing again!
Thanks everyone for the feedback, sorry i didn't update, had some shit to take care of, scusi!
Mister Dark, next time i'm near brussels i'll be sure to tell you, would be cool to sketch together tho you're a lot better than i am (that just means i'll have to work harder then!!)
Jonas, do you mean using different brushes? And the studies arent imagination, i did a quick sketch in pencil while observing the studies and then just went over it with aquarel.
Still have a lot to learn about ... well every thing really :P But here's a small update so far, also made a quick little illustration to thank a friend of mine. Had to paint it with mouse (wacom still broken ugghhh) sos orry for the crappyness
Thanks, keep up with the Bridgman studies.
hey Lav really nice bridgman studies.
And union jack guy totally owns captain whats-his-name :muscle:
Oh wow, the lines are so confident in the last batch of hand studies!
