Laziest day evaahhh Just had a huge energy crash at about 2pm and never recovered, bleehhhhh Does anyone know how to get rid of having those. I get them at about 1/2pm and 6/7pm real bad. I get a good amount of sleep, barely drink coffee anymore etc
Some quick sketches, trying to simplify more. I always get too caught in other stuff and don't realise big stuffs wrong 0_0
Hey SamC, killer work man!
In your dark still lives I am finding that you tend to keep them a little bit flat in colour.
For example the last dark one with the belt and the pencil. I think it can get more depth by looking at colour more.
And about your energy problem, the answer is all in the food you eat. You've gotta eat food wich keeps you going throughout the day.
Also, some sort of light excercise might give you more energy.
Very nice sketchbook, definitelly will go here regulary. I like your style and brushes you use
Luckers: Yeah trying to work on that Yeah apparently porridge is really good for energy, and I've started eating more fruit. I usually run twice a week but may do more often since I hate the slumps
Sebastian Gromann: Thanks dude
Todays studies! I also believe I have some hands to scan too!
wasabi89: Thanks man
zryanart: Thanks a lot
Trying to sort out my energy levels D: Looking into slow release foods like nuts and stuff and eating less heavy meals that make me tired. Can't be dealing with falling asleep at 6pm D: Its taking me loads of time to do not a lot, and the stuff I do is turning out shit. Gotta sort it out! Also: wondering if its due to non-stop working? May be worth taking a day off?
Will scan the hands for sure tomorrow, when I've finished the 100
All I have to show for today
looking nice the personal sketch!
Just watch out for the transition of light and dark, the stop its a little bit too sudden, usually there's a soft warm orange/red in the middle of the transition (that is, if you're not blocked by any object too close to you) and her head is a little bit too big (or her shoulders/torso area is too small).
it would be better to take a day break, both your body and brain need to rest in order to process all the things you learned so its actually better if you do stop for a day.
Chill and do something else besides painting
cheers and keep pushing!
One good practice that i was told by John English is that when you do a sketch you should always complete the composition, even if the drawing isnt complete. Give everything a frame, a sense of motion, and create a focal point. If you do this in your studies consistently then you will always hit your mark in your finished work. A lot of people can create a good technical painting and completely miss the composition.
Good work man. Take the day off
John Silva: Will probably scrap it, bit of a shit idea thanks
Aryeh: Yeah just not a well planned sketch, sorry
FUSHANDCHUPS: Thanks dude
Just a heads up, morning stream will be 2 hours early tomorrow. Thats 8am GMT, hope to see some people there
Morning photo study
Finished my 100 hands
Playing with pencil
This thread has a lot of tits, and I love that...what it could use though, is butts, more butts, for example in white panties
But on a serious note, top notch studies man. I love how you use work with edges. Looking forward to new updates.
Sam, you've become an inspiration to me. I looked through almost your entire sketchbook (with the exceptions of pages 43? -50 something) and watched you grow as an artist. And I am simple floored. Your determination and the work you put into what you do, has motivated me to do the same. Thank you.
I hope to make the leaps and bounds you have.
thirdeye: More butts it is! Thanks
PieMonster: Yeah Find it hard in pencil, working on itttt
Aryeh: D: oh right thanks haha
Alexandria Rosales: Ah I've not really accomplished anything, nothing to be proud of, thankssss
Face studies, proportions are a mess gotta train my eyeeeee
