In the first two portraits, it looks like you might be making the noses just a bit too long, and the space between the noses and bottom of the chin a bit too small. I do that a lot, too. D:
Thanks Caco! yea now that I am looking at them again I def see what you are talking about ><
A few sketches and another attempt are trying to color this picture!! Aghhh! I think it's better than the last but I'm not totally satisfied with it. I tried to go flatter but I don't think it worked.
I really love your pencil work. It's funny - this girl reminds me of the character portraits from FFVIII. XD
For the skin tone practice - and I'm learning all this, too, so take what I say with a grain of salt - I think the right side of her face looks really good. There's that nice warm reflection from her hair that is believable. The left side and the areas facing the camera are a bit less convincing, though. The grayish shadows on the left, in particular, seem way too desaturated to me. And here's some advice I got recently - for the brightest highlights, try using the complimentary color of whatever color the object is. So in this case, blue-green.
I really like the first drawing, is that a self portrait? The ants idea is genius.
@ Caco - Thanks so much for the tips = D
@Mason- Thanks! Yes the first one is an attempt at a self portrait = P
Today's work...realizing I gave her a man chin = P Put the second one in the critique thread for now here
Nice anatomy studies, and this girl looks awesome. The legs in your most recent post don't looks quite right, though. The foot on the ground doesn't really feel like there's any weight resting on it, and the raised leg has some issues around the ankle.
@ Caco- yea I agree with your crits. Thanks for the input I didn't see the problem with the ankle until now! = D
Start of another inking...thinking I might redo the face. did some still life sketches today too but my camera has randomly stopped working meh...
hi there you have improved so much this sketchbook looks real promising
keep up the hard work ill be staying tuned
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
Thanks Omerta! = D
i have been drawing like crazy, my hand literally hurts right now. This is some stuff from a few days ago, I'll have another big update tomorrow most likely. School is over yay! = D
I enjoy your figure drawings, you have a really cool style.
It seems that you enjoy drawing females more than drawing males.
I like your pencil work on the latest piece, but I can't help but to notice a slight of femininity on the man's face. I don't know if this intentional or not.
I like your style, though. it reminds me of Disney and these sketches are great.
So I wanted to work on a series of self portraits over the break....meh...I think it needs some tweaking so it looks a bit more like me but since I haven't done much with oils I don't think it's horrible, the reference pics for what I'm gonna be working on are on my FB = D
You are developing a really solid foundation of work here. I really enjoy some of your characters. They are just realistic enough to be believable, yet just cartoonish enough to bring a great sense of whimsy. Keep at it!
As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.
I really like this one, what was it you did to get these results?
Hi, just looked through your SB, you've got some real potential.
Keep up with making those anatomy and face sketches, it's really important to understand how human body looks and works.
Try to make more sketches from life, animals, plants, cars, streets and etc. try to understand how each thing connects to other and how they interact together.
You draw many faces and characters but most of them have the same face, try to draw different characters- old, young, girls, guys, babies, ugly, beautiful and etc.
There are tons of good artists that can draw perfectly a cute fantasy girl but when you ask them to draw an old man sitting in a chair they say that they don't like it - when actually they just can't draw it, like i said before you've got real potential- please don't become one of these artists.
Keep up the great job and keep practicing.
You've got style. I'll be keeping an eye on this sb from now on. Every time I think of a critique to make I see that you've addressed it in the next post.
Wonderful line quality and flow. The poses have life and energy. Try doing some work on expressions because I notices they're often the same. Also keep working on your color application and try to push the contrast in them and try not got let the brush strokes in your digital paintings get to uniform. It'll be more interesting if you mix it up and got in thicker in some places. For example, the background in last image in post 84 isn't as interesting as it could be with more variation and contrast.
Keep posting, rah rah rah! Can't wait to see more.
Haven't updated in a while cause of the holidays but I'm still been drawing!
Thanks for all the helpful comments.
@ Meph - Thanks so much! = D
@ plant- Not sure if this is the answer to your question but I used charcoal on newsprint with a lot of accidental smudging. = )
@ Fallenangel - Thank you so much for your post. It's funny because the past week or so I told myself basically exactly what you have said. Going to try to lay off drawing the girl, or at least not as much. As you can see from this post. I really want to try to expand and your post just re-affirmed my thinking and I appreciated your directness! = D
@ Mokhi - Thanks so much for you crits! You are very right! = )
I'm really am not liking this now but here was my finished chow just because I thought I should meh...
Alright well after watching the Vandruff on demand I kinda see Bridgeman in a new light so here are a few studies.
I did do some expression studies about a week ago, using some random tutorial.
Also I'm trying to draw something other than people and I'm actaully really enjoying the freedom of it. If you can't tell, the last page I was watching Finding Nemo = P
Thanks Again =D
