more sculpture and sketchbook sketches. i think i found the style im comfortable in. its kinda of a continuous line look.. the sketches i did from observation but i only used the models as reference. i totally changed them around. (i didnt really have vampires as models :/)

sketchbook updated October 6th
Wowzerz, I love the way your brain works ^_^
Help a 16 year old kid out with some critique, my sketchbook
There's some really good work in this thread. I especially like the life studies (especially the skull) on the first page,as well as the Karloff/Frankenstein
portrait, (although I like the B&W better than the colorized one) and the bust sculpt on the last page.
Your hatching, and shading are strong. Not much to critique, except on the paintings: I think the highlights are a little strong, and opaque. Maybe more blending would improve that. Also, some of the shapes, like the ellipses at the openings of the vessels in the still life, appear to be a little off ( ellipses should never come to a point on the end) in places. I know you have a pretty short time to complete them, if it is a class project, but spending more time on the initial construction/skeleton of the forms before painting might help. You also have to take into consideration, that I'm struggling with those very concepts, and many others at the present. If you care to peek at my sketchbook, you'll see what I mean. It's far easier to pinpoint mistakes in others work, than to correct them in your own!
Keep up the good work!
sculpture's lookin fine, mate the James Dean, skull and still lifes are strong stuff as well, keep up the good work!
Agreed with zombi's point regarding looking at the smaller shapes, they can be observed better i think (but everyone does that same mistakes, so dont fret too much ;P ), but overall looking forwards to see what you have up next
its been a while muh fellow artists. im back with some updates. all stuff ive been doing while in school along with one or 2 personal sketches. hope u all enjoy
- the first 6 images are all watercolor. the first 2 have some ink wash in them.
- the rest are just sketches i did. the gladiator and lil troll dude were for an assignment and the other 2 were done in class with a model for reference
Wow I really love your most recent sculptures and sketches :D The latest sculpture has a lot going for it, I love the anatomy~ I don't know that much about sculpting but it also looks like it's really well balanced. His stature is cool too, very confident looking :P Awesome stuff!
And the sketches are really awesome too :D I really love the last page with the girl and the Knight guy :D He seems kinda confused xD
Also love the piece in post #13, I know it was ages ago but I really like tone and feeling of it..
Anyways, awesome stuff (: Subscribing and waiting for more! <:
really awesome sketchbook mate! Can't wait to see more
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

Please comment on my deviant art I need friends T-T
BUY MY SHIRTS PLEASE - They're awesome.
There are no sketches from nature to improve a represented plasticity. Training I draw from a photo, and it simply set of shades and light not having volume and the form. To have to fill a sock sand interpreteit it as a body part))) At you good understanding of human anatomy. I would like to ask you pursue what that aim or thought representing the person and how on yours the finished work should look?
zombifried - i feel like u deserve a littl bit more of a response than just a thanks. but yes i will definitely take into consideration about what u said of my highlights on still life. ive always had trouble with value and temperature in painting 9or anything with color fo that matter) and about my construction/skeleton yea i have a bad habit of working way too fast for my own good. i usually end up seeing problems halfway thru the painting. the point of no return. i think this is because im pretty confident with my drawing skills that i kinda overlook it (no mean to sound cocky). i know i need to practice but my lazy ass wud rather play call of duty or go out. but hopefully this changes and when it does, thorough critiques like the one u took the time to type out are guna be kept in mind. so thank u for not just saying, "nice sketchbook" haha. no offense to those who are reading this and did just write that tho! anyways. thanks again zombifried

My57 - thanks. much appreciated
midknight523 - thank u
n1frit - sorry but uhh. im havin truble understanding what ur trying to ask. im kind of embarassed to say it but i dont wana pretend like i do. i understood the first part and thank u. i would like to clarify though that a lot of my art is from life i just usually exaggerate the costume or the pose to fit the image i have in mind. for example both figures in post #75 wer from life. i just took care of the creative part
so heres 2 more drawings from my sketchbook. the first one is a drawing from life. again, i exaggerated the costume and pose just a tad. i.e. the model was a girl and had a skirt on, and i added the bottle. the second was a homework assignment which was to practice helmets and the way they fit on a head. these pics were all found on google. i just added the style
You have talent! Keep up the great work.
Whoa...awesome stuff dude...i like your pencil lines and your sculpting skills a lot
mike butkus - thanks a lot. ur comments are always short but greatly appreciated
Mike L - Yea I miss sculpting. I just don't love it enough to do it on my own time :/ Thank you though
ArtDisaster - graphite is my fallback i hope you enjoy these uploads cuz its a lot more pencil work
So here is some stuff that I have been up to this past semester. I took an animal drawing class and learned a ton about animal bones and muscle structure. Pretty interesting stuff. For these drawings I used up to 3 different reference pictures to create the silhouette then used Eliot Goldfinger's Animal Anatomy for the Artists book for additional reference
shweeeet! that's what i call "practices" )) nice work man! love ur pencils!
available for freelance/long term job
ClaretCrab - Thanks man. I still cant get over how awesome your work is.. by the way. i wasnt lying when I said i would subscribe
So here is a set of icons I did for an assignment using Illustrator. I'm in the process of uploading some more Illustrator work, but I'm having trouble getting the jpeg to fit
update: i posted 2 more pieces done in Illustrator. One was a poster design which we did to practice font and design. The 2nd piece is part of a bigger interactive page. I didn't want to attach the .swf file but since all the art was done in Illustrator I figured I would post it anyways

Here are 2 more paintings i did during the semester. i have a ton of other ones but they aren't the best. i barely started getting the hang of painting in photoshop towards the end of the semester. i still have a lot to learn with photoshop but this class kicked me into 1st gear. its the brushes that are still a concept to grasp.
Hey, I love your drawings and that sculpture with pipe. the photoshop stuff needs to be handled differently. Start with bigest brush possible and paint most obvious and important shapes first, then go and paint smaller ones and smaller ones. You know, as you would with oils.
keep it up and thanks for dropping by my thread.
