hey glory,try to draw the head in perspective and in various angles.there is a section in Loomis' figure drawing book that learns you the head construction.beside that,you can try to draw the skull,it will help you very much.
hey everybody, please comment on this. its my best piece of artwork to date. its Lionel off smallville, i did use photo reference. this was pretty much using colour, but i also learned alot about the face.
That last piece is definitely looking good, I see improvement from your former works. Very nice values.
But in general, your proportions look a bit skewed, sometimes the torso is too big or the face not matching with the whole head, if you know what I mean. Do you use guide lines while observing and drawing? As in, seeing that the right eye matches up vertically with the elbow in a certain pose, etc. It helps you getting a more concrete and wholesome picture in your head while drawing. Keep those lines in mind always.
But keep at it, I see you're pumping out studies and sketches, very good work!
Hey man, checking in again after quite awhile. It's good to see you've kept working so much...(so much more than I have). It's looking good, that Lionel painting is pretty good --- and I was happy to see you working more on the face. That was one thing that I kept noticing, seems like your jawlines are often a bit skewed or stretched, making the skull seem longer than it should be (from back of head, to front of face, I mean).
There's a bunch of different styles and it's really cool, the watercolor I like especially for some reason. Keep working on those lines - sometimes they seem rounded and almost bubbly, try working on a bit more of a flow for anatomy. I saw some of it in post #'s 80 and...95. Those are some more solid, confident lines. Keep working mate.
Hey you lookin at my sketchbook. Sorry for people who actually care about my artwork, ive been getting ready for university to study bachelour of animation. I never knew uni would be this much of a bitch......and i havnt even started! I pretty much have to worry about where i am going to live, all i have is a shopping trolley.lol. ok, here are the many thanks to awsum peoples....
Matsign- thanks man, i will
PieXags-i havnt been doin as much work as i could have, but i can improve on that in the future. I'll keep workin on my faces and lines, thanks for the awsum comment!
Minimize brush strokes. You have a lot going on there. Try to go easy on the smooth brushes and get more into hard brushes. ANATOMY ANATOMY ANATOMY. Let's see you take some time to draw plates out of that anatomy book. First, start with the skeleton. And draw the skeleton in various poses. Now, when you do this, start with a human reference and draw what the skeleton looks like underneath.

looking good so far, and i can see your pretty determined to become a better artist. By the looks of it you've had every advise in the world, so i'll only give you one tip, try doing 10 second sketches, mainly of people or animals from life, children and cats are great, becouse their constantly moving. Although they may look bad and useless at first, their very beneficial. By doing 10 second sketches it will teach you how to draw the very basics shapes, which is probably one of the most important parts of any picture. Also these are a great way to warm up before starting on a much large painting.
thanks chermilla. I using a wacom tablet, i hope your not thinking that my work looks like it was done with the standard of a mouse! I used yellow in the batman piece to draw the viewers eyes to those spots first
