i like your stuff and a lot of the ideas, you can try to practice more drawing under a classical lighting.
It's nice to see you started the sketches of head, i should do the same thing when i finish all my exams, hehe
and for the link of your sketchbook page, i think you've already figured out how to do it
btw, i put a drawing of a castle there, and i want to see how would other people color it, so come grab it and paint if you like
The last studies are the best to me. Personally, I think it's best to study those easy basic shapes that make up everything before drawing with lines and shadows. Learn to see these shapes and know them well (gah, I'm a broken record, I say this to everyone, hahah): cones, cylinders, cones, cubes, pyramids, and spheres.
Sendak - well im actually enjoying the basics believe it or not lol. but ill try and bring some more real life into it real soon. only a little hard to convert basics into a actual face (from those studies i did) but ill have to keep trying as u say. thx for stopping by MY sketchbook!
Draniel - hey thx for viewing my SB again. but when u say 'classical' lighting, do u mean bring in more contrast in my pics to emphasize where the light is coming from? and also, doingstudies for art has onlyn come in after i finish skool lol (seemed like there was no time for it during skool lol.... free now). and thx for the offer (castle) ill come take a look
eminkey2003 - thx for the tip. i guess shapes will help a lot, if u no where to start with them on the head lol. sounds a lil too basic to me but it couldnt hurt to try em out
..... well here r some eyes i made after viewing wat they really look like....
tmbritton - thx man, i even surprised myself lol... but i really need to practise eyes on a much smaller scale, coz i cant get such fine details when small to make em realistic enough.
but here r some "attempts" at using wireframe proportions to make a face...
chick is ok - needs a smaller chin i think
middle guy - hes ok i guess but needs work
first guy - has too small of a head lol (prob needs more hair) and i think eyes r too close
sry guys... havent posted in a little ... got caught up in a couple of things.
thought i might practise lips coz i havent really looked at em much (still not quite happy with em) and NOSES! omg they a pain so i thought i might do a few of them and i really like em, they turned out better than expected.
so here they r.....
i thought maybe instead of just posting my progression of practises, ill post something more interesting to look at (i hope u think they r lol). u guys must get mored seeing too much of practise pages, but plz crit on them if u havent alrdy coz id like to know wat u think of em.
to keep u guys going here r some pics i did quite a while bak... still crit if u plz
-- read on for brief background on each piece below --
1. dragon - ended up being my final piece for skool (redrawn on larger scale)
2. an attempt at drawing myself drawing lol (proud of how it turned out... btw the things at top of the page r my feet lol .. kool sox yeh??!!)
3. scythe chik - an idea i thought might be fun to draw (yeh... anatomy needs work...)
4. another dragon - did it during a trip on a holiday (love the teeth even though they rough )
5. gunner - redrawn character i did in my planner during english class... lol
The clay head was done from life. 12 hours overall i think. Thanks for the compliments and thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. There should be some sort of large dump happening in the near future. As for critique it's great to see that your are drawing. Keep doing that...as much as possible haha. Are you doing underlying drawings for your figures? Pick up an anatomy book and look at proportion and structure. Then trying using basic shapes for the ribcage, pelvis etc. This guy really helped me out http://www.vilppustudio.com/. have a good one and thanks agian
clay works do really take long dont they lol ... especially my first one that i tried to make good. and no, with all the character pics here i havent done underlying drawing for them (non-existant for me during skool lol) but now that im out, have time, im trying to do that now. ....yeh propotions r prob my main weakness. with the site is there any online drawing guide or do i have to buy?
(more pics soon)

Sup Gkrit, thanks for stopping by, I came across your works earlier and was thinking, I hope to get to the point where I can sketch in values like the one you did for the creature sketches. I have serious commitment issues and hence not doing art as a profession. Keep up the good work. Its great to meet someone in a similar place where it seems we do more sketching and just starting to embark on the painting realm!
You've got some nice work here !
But if I was you I'd try to add more shadows.
Let's take for exemple the worm . It could look more creepy if their would be more contrast . Bleh
In the last one is where I can see the best improvment .
snootchy - thx for appreciating my creature style. however they do still need some more work contrast-wise as vandoum brought up. and for commitment, it shouldnt be too hard when u see such great artwork on CA. this is where alot of my motivation came from recently. took me away from games also lol.
Vandoum - thx alot for coming to view my work. when i picture it in my head with contrast or predict wat it will look like i can sort of understand wat the improvement would be like if i were to contrast it up a bit. undoubtedly though it will ehance the image to a much greater degree.
dadushin - well im trying and ill try keep updating as often as i can
heres another update.... this time theyre weapon designs.
i was experimenting with charcoal and conte (conte is pretty tricky to use if u dont no how but i got the hang of it easily.... i think). first 2 daggers were in charcoal, 3rd dagger conte, and sword conte.
last scythe was my most recent weapon design (done 2 days ago).
thought i might revisit photoshop again
.... scythe speed painted, i guess ... hope u like, and give advise wherever needed!
u mean like this.. but hue didnt work (wasnt changing anything). so i just adjusted the lighting.
Nice studies and cool creatures dude, way to go, keep it up. Here´s some more "input" http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...light=Bridgman
Hope it´s usefull, cya...
I see you've had a few updates since I last swung by
The nose/mouth studies are pretty sweet (I need to do a few soon haha)
Scythe looks pretty cool too, although I think the blade could be longer, usually scythes have pretty long blades I believe
Keep it up
ghoulio - hey thx for viewing and commenting on my work. its always nice to no when ur own work is being acknowledged and appreciated.
and btw thx for the site, ill be viewing it now as often as i can.
JFierce - hey man, ur like the only one that has commented on my art studies after some time and a regular viewer lol. and im glad u have coz thats the reason y i post em here.
also, feel free to say if they r bad, coz thats wats gonna help me become better.
wooow I didn't see this... okay, to link your sb with a word you just must write the word you want and then you "select" the word (dunno how to say it in english,... emm put the god damn word in black !) and then you you click in insert link (under the smile) and insert the link you want like thishey .. thx for pointing out exactly wat i wanted to no, coz it is something that i have noticed also with my faces head on, appreciate it.
but ive always wondered how to get that 'SketchBook' thing down the bottom
without giving the URL lol which it might show below this one
heres a pic that i just did now....
Nice sketchbook! You have some cool creature/costume designs. Keep up with the figure drawing and life studies....I can already see some improvement from the start of your thread to the end.
Your work is way better than I was at your age. Just keep at it.

Clodioz - thx for replying to an earlier post that wasnt answered. ill be working out how to to the "word" thingy now.
sheepchase - now i no that my studying has paid off lol, thx. all im just doing now is finding a time to get some books on body structure, proportions etc.
my next photoshop pic i made, was from a picture i took of a 'christmas' beetle (lol... but to bloody get good focus of a close up was a pain in the ass).
i made this a colour test for me.
firstly i did the base (full black, getting basic structure), then i just started adding colour. simple ey!! (at first was hard, coz didnt no where to start). when i feel like it ill prob add a log in the background
here r some more pics ive drawn.
first 2 r most recent drawings, the rest were other previous practises.
hope u enjoy these ones!
yo dude! good to see ur practicing the basics, very nice!
try to draw a lot from life, maybe attend a modeldrawing group or something, its great fun, and u learn a lot!

Hey, thanks for stopping over at my sketchbook. You're doing well over at this end, keep the studies up and I hope to see some good drawing gains soon.
Some nice pencils. Keep practising.
Be careful when you blend skintones with PS (or whatever soft)
you cant just blend your highlight and you shadow color, otherwise you'll get a very murky, muddy look...add some well saturated color in between...and look for ref and you will see that shadows are more saturated that what you think...
some helpful tut from a wonderful artist:
Hope it's helping....
Nice work man. I can see that there is a difference between what you draw for pleasure and what you draw to learn more. If posible, try to apply what you learn to what you draw for pleasure.
