hi there I'm Matt just wanted to start a sketchbook over here at conceptart.org really appreciate criticism- just wanna get better and better- thought i'd upload some practise pics first- studying Elvgren, and rockwell and andrew loomis books at the moment.
any type of feedback is appreciated, cheers :)
any type of feedback is appreciated, cheers :)
I'm a beginner so no advice from me, but I sure digg the first lady! :D :rocker:
Very nice :)
MadisE- ah thank you! but some of the best advice ive ever get is from my 12 year old cousin who just says it how it is. if its crap or doesn't look right she'll tell me heh.
this is my daily practice- i've kind of been doing daily this since September- i draw a page from andrew loomis book and do the page 8 times over till its carved in my mind- every artists learn in different ways and i feel the best way for me is to go over and over rather then spend ages on one pic.- currently on page 97 so gonna upload as much as possible from now on.

The studies are very nice. You really nailed that old timey look. I also like the last illustration. Very expressive. Keep up the good work.
Hey. It's a good start with some really promising studies. It would be good to balance these studies from books with some life studies, it can only help to broaden your skills. Is arguably the best way to learn also. Look forward to future posts.
hey thanks guys! yeah your absolutley right- never get the time to do it but will have to make time for life drawing- wanna go back to classes so might look into that.
this is for cghub latest drawing jam- w.ip
Here is my finished entry for the latest Drawing Jam, 43 Pin-up.
Very nice! I'll definitely be following this SB. I'm particularly fond of the style you've got going in the first and second images of this SB.
Great artwork! I do prefer the more painterly style in your first post instead of the smooth style of the last one. Think the last one could use some more roughness. Keep up the good work!
Wow, I love the boldness of stroke in your first digis. Really crisp and nice coloring.
Really nice start.
I love those portraits in the first post!
hey thanks so much for the nice words! they keep me going!- i'll go back to the painterly style again and try and push that style :)
todays and yesterdays

todays study - took all day :S
William Bouguereau- absolutely love this artist!!- sounds bad but only just found out about him -definately the best i've ever seen.
todays and last nights- not very good at getting the face to match the orignal but still happy with the outcome - want to do 4-5 more kids colour and drawing studies then move onto teenagers-- working my way through the andrew loomis- heads and hands book and finding colour studies to match the drawing practise..

amazing studies (:
one more for today- my computer crashed and i didn't save so lost about 3 hours of work.. well i guess i'll learn to save ore often- first time thats happened for like a year or so maybe more. and not really bothered because learnt something really important in this study!- using the villpu method is much better for me then the andrew loomis technique- well for likeness of character but both are still good..
