the reason why started this sketchbook is quite simple- i really need some objecttive crits on my drawings. i'm kind of noob when it comes to digital painting- received my first tablet two weeks ago and i love it. before that i did some pencil sketching. i haven't been drawing for few months last year but i managed to pull myself together and now i'm drawing/sketching everyday as i kinda realised that drawing is the only thing that i won't give up that easily like i did with a lot of things in my life. so i started again with the basics. i practice anathomy quite a lot lately. enough talking here's some art
here's my first painting on the tablet- it's still a WIP. she's meant to be sort of snake/dragon woman
that one was on dsg as u can probably see

practicing lips- is it just me or is it really hard to draw them???
Yo dude, welcome to CA! You got mad potential...just keep going! I really like those lip sketches you did. Very good practice material! Would love to see the chick and the snake completed; it's coming along nicely!
thanx peetaer for first crit on my art. i'll try to finish the chick asap. i just got some other projects that need to be finished before i get only WIPs in my portfolio i'm working on my consistency with my projects as i get really distracted by my job lately. stay tuned!!!
a tribute to logan
just wanted it to look like those retro horror b-movies posters
another retro(ish) female portrait. hope u like it
for the horde! (no, i'm not a WoW fan)
Good to see you've been busy man! Hell yeah man! These last few are looking good as far as shading and tones are going. You're gonna learn a lot drawing from photos and life (more so from life than photo's just because photos are flat).
Thanks for dropping by my SB. I will also be keeping tabs on yours!
Nice pencil work, keep pushing!
here are some portraits
practicing shading. sorry for the poor quality of scan
yo jirik i guess you're right- i try to be to precise all the time but trust me i'm working really hard on it
here's that darn anathomy
request to anyone visiting: please write down what anathomy books or whatever were u learning from, big thx
haven't posted anything for such a long time. i spent quite a lot time studying human anathomy and portraiture. since my pc has been broken for 2 months i had a lot of time for pencil drawings- i'll post them quite soon so be sure to check'em out
Thank you so much for the feedback on my sketch book ;3
You have wonderful pencil studies but you do need a little more practice on the digital stuff, the dog is done superbly well! Just the faces especially on the last one look off. The eyes are wonky and too far apart.
besides that its all looking really promising :3
arrowroot: well yeah you're right about the eyes- they look kinda weird don't they. gotta work on them soon. that's exactly what a friend of mine said
Arthe Xavier: thx a lot dude, just trying to do my best. gotta work a lot on my dig.stuff though. i'll try to post some stuff soon
very nice stuff i see here keep going i think you can go far
pawl: thx man. i don't mean to sound cocky but u bet i wanna go far gotta work harder though
here's a sketch i made last night. just to practice some lighting and stuff
Hello there i can see your really excited over your tablet and thats a wonderfull thing.
Ill give you some tips for digital painting
This is the brush i usually use for simple studies like your doing(or if your staring out digital painting)(see atachments xD)
I would sugest going to these sections of the forums:
- Turorials, tips and tricks
- References and inspirations
- FineArts, Studies and discovery
Check out these forum threads:
- Peer Project Version 2
- Digital Painting for PS
Websites to check:
- Specular, radiosity, etc.
And there are much more things for you to check.
Some artists show progress shots of their works, i look at them and see how they work.
Some of them just block in the colors other have thumbnails and others have lineart, but i really like the blocking of colors because you dont waste anytime on elaborate sketches or lineart that your usually going to get rid of if you dont like linearts.
Blocking of colors(usually the darkest, without shadows or highligts, just outline the overall shapes) > apply major colors for shadows, highligts, rosyness, etc(no details just overall forms) > develop the forms and colors, shadows, highlights(basicly continue painting to hit likeness to the picture) > Adding details and minor colors that may be missing > Final adjustments.
This is how i usually do my painting studies and its very nice this way i prefer it really.
Hope this helped, i have alot more stuff that you can see but for now i think this is enough dont wanna make this reply too long.
