Thanks dan. I am trying a completely different way of drawing and I'm just getting used to it so the 1st BenF was way out proportionaly but I got him the 2nd time. You're right about the lighting in that "thing". I've been studying lighting for a couple of weeks and the box things in this post might be better.
Thanks Snootchy and cgaddict.
Older SP, some quick face sketches and some box/light studies.
jig u crazy bastard y do u keep doing this to me, i want them render skills, seriously great studies, i really like that block sketch almost looks like a 3d render in a good way lifelike u rock mang!
WWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW THATS FREAK'N AAAAAWWWWWESSSSSOOOOMMEEEEEEEEEE DiGI LEVEL UP WERKS BROTHER JIGJE YER UNDERSTANDING OF VALUES IS AMAZING AN THE FIRST STUDY IN THE LAST POST THE BALANCE BETWEEN HARD AN SOFT EDGES AN CONTRAST OF FOCUS IS GENIUS RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOCCCCCC CCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!
Jigje is still kicking ass! I don't know what that is on top of the rock but it looks good. I love the subtle reflection underneath.
Snootchy, Granny and Nicky. Thanks you guys, I feeeeel the loooove.
Just another box thing.
Hey vanaga. Sveiki, Ka tev klajas? Thanks for visiting.
Hi kulka. Where.... have.... you..... beeeen ????? Good luck tommorrow.
Haha, thanks ramin. Im just trying to copy Magic Mans boxy things.
see ur at it again with them wicked renders, keep kicking the crap outta that canvas, really diggin u starting to do some more conceptual stuff and applying the studies u've done keep at it playah!!
I think your rendering skills are pretty strong. I really like your self portraits. I would say to just draw more. You are doing a great job.
Hey Snootch. Thanks for your encouragement as always man. I'm hanging to do stuf like you and everyone else with awesome imagination and skills but I'm still a baby drawer. I'll keep trying to improve both technique and imagination, give me another year or two, I'm patient.
Haha, thanks vanaga.
I haven't been posting the stuff I've been playing around with because it isn't worth showing, just training drills. I'm lucky enough that recently I started to be tutored by Magic Man, great artist, great teacher and great person. I didn't want to sully his reputation by saying he was my teacher but he assures me it's ok to say, haha. Remember that if I'm still a ratbag in a year or so, it is NOT Magic Mans fault. Heh Heh.
Not having great luck with friends lately. The latest drama being that one of my closest mates died last week, unexpectedly, suddenly, young.
Just starting to learn a little about colour. I copied this from a photo and I guess the main point was to get the colour and values right without using the picker. I know there is heaps to do to it but it won't be done, I got what I wanted from it. This took me about three hours but I swear that just a few weeks ago it'd take 3 nights of three hours each so I'm getting a little faster if nothing else.
You're a baby drawer? Is that the one you keep your socks in?
I just love watching you improve Jigje. Keep at it!
dood jig that last study is awesome, i really like how some parts are focused and others blurred, i think for me at least that's what painting is all about, the edges and as for colors, don't think need to stress just keep using it, it'll come naturally to u and experiment but i'm still blown away by ur eye for proportions and value
i said it before, i'd take one of ur sketches over 1000 of my lousy sketches anyday cuz there's just that much more substance in ur sketches, so even if it takes u 3hrs to do it, still kick ass dood
and sorry to hear about ur friend, i hope everything is good with u
Hi Nicky G. Thanks mate. Thanks for your constant support.
Hey Snootchy, it feels better when you're back in town.
More thinking about colour, lighting and trying to draw with a bit of imagination. I could do heaps more to the suit but I'm moving on now. I like tigers and I like space so.......
alright the jig (sorry couldn't resist) is up, what are you on or taking?! seriously now i got to put out like 10,000 sketches to match one of these kick ass illustrations ur getting into! I could write a gajillion things about what i like but I'm just gonna say this, you are one talented bastardo (<--------i mean this in a good way)
the more i look at it the more it seems like it's real, i will point the thing that gets me about this last sketch is the believability of the materials in terms of the texture of the suit or the shiny metallic finish on the helm, really tip stuff dood, look forward to the next kickass post!
Hi Jigje Thanks for visitin and I've seen Sebastians Caricatures briefly on google searches but not known his name, thanks for the fresh inspiration Norman Rockwell was the first caricaturist who inspired me.
Anyways your work is amazing! especially your sp's and Bobafet Also love the spacetiger, he's quite suave. You doing any caricatures yourself?
The way you render those... metal... things is so awesome! Looks really solid!
In the latest pic, the chest part looks rather flat, but otherwise it's really good!
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=198039 - My sketchbook! I LOVE comments!
Hey Snootchy baby. Thanks mate. I'm just trying to spend a bit more time on stuff and it helps me to learn the things I'm studying. My aim is to be able to spit out 5 masterful speedies per day like you do. haha.
Hey angel in the ook. Thanks for droping by mate. Sebastian is a freak, isn't he? I've never tried to do a caricature but I'm tacking it onto the long list of things to do.
Hi Dreadful Look. You're right about the tiger chest. I never meant to go quite that far with the pic and I ran out of steam and posted it when things like that could/should have been finished off. Thanks for the crit mate, thanks for visiting.
Here's a chook.
seriously Jig ur killing me, i'm seriously blown away by your constant vigilante path to improvement and with each new sketch I don't think i've seen you take a step back at all! Thanks for being such an inspiration and great role model for what it takes to become better at something!
Keep up the goodness homey, ur doing great!
Wow.. I honestly don't know what to crit really.. you are just so good. One thing I haven't seen in your studies yet are still lifes, correct me if I'm wrong though.
You may want to consider painting or drawing some still lifes, but what works for me may not be good for you, so it's just an idea which may help you with your colours..
Keep well for now bro and have fun with your next study. =)
Hey Jigje. CATSA is very cool and uh, nice cock (seriously, someone had to say it ).
Magic Man - Thanks Daz. I owe you big time mate, the sessions with you taught me more than I could learn by myself in 2 years. Thanks for everything Master Magic Man.
snootchy - Thanks snootch, you're way too kind mate. I get satisfaction from doing something I like but there's no denying that it's great when someone else likes it. Thanks for your constant encouragement. Seriously appreciate it and I'm always inspired by your awesome sketchbook.
vanaga - Wow, thanks vanaga. The whole thing was done using Magic Mans chalk brush (find a link to it through his sketchbook). The last pass was done with a brush from a magazine cd. It makes 5-6 lines when you drag it, I just used it to fur it up. I'll email the file if you want it, just pm me.
Kungfoowiz - Hey mate, thanks so much for visiting. You're right about still lifes. Apart from the skull stuff and self portraits, I haven't done that much. My to do list is ridiculously long but more still life studies are in there somewhere.
MattGamer - Thank you man. Those made up block studies taught me loads about lighting annnnd they're great fun. Do 'em k?
NicG - Trust you to be the first. I must admit that I got allot of mileage out of it myself when I was drawing it.
Benjy - Haha, thanks Benjy. You have to be pretty quick to beat NicG to a ribald remark.
LAL - Thanks LAL. Glad you like it, thanks for visiting.
