Daaaamn, it all looks amazing to me.
I have nothing interesting to say but here's my sketchbook, perhaps you'll think I've drawn something interesting XD http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=167964
Great use of color and fantastic lines. Bravo!
That b/w environment at the top is really deliciousss...great composition. Awesome abstract stuff too. This one is really impressive.
I know this one is from a while ago, but the shadows seem bit mushy. Especially because he's so humongous i think the values could be clearer like in your environment studies. Would be more convincing if you incorporated some atmospheric perspective or complementary colors too yah.
thank you very much for the kind words, guys
yihyoungli: youre absolutely right. that picture suffers a lot from the fact that i made a sketch and decided to just say 'fuck it' and dive right in without any real planning, and it shows. it's a really messy and unprofessional process and as much as you try to fix it in the later stages, in the end you end up with dull values, color, and composition. gotta learn to be more patient, but unfortunately patience is not one of my virtues when it comes to drawing.
it's been a while since i updated, mainly because my ancient scanner broke and i had no money to buy a new one. yesterday i turned 21 however and today i had money again to buy a new one, and it works awesomely. scans literally 10 times faster than my old one and with much better quality
here are some bridgman arm studies and random no ref sketches that i have done in the meantime
hey guys. been slacking a lot, but here are two little pictures i made for a friend a week or so ago. one little face study and a portrait of sorts. the proportions are really bothering me now and as you can probably tell i got lazy in the finishing stage, but i'm just going to let it be and hopefully learn from my mistakes. thanks for looking.
very nice work here my friend!
MY SKETCHBOOK : http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...=Caio+Monteiro
damn there's some serious stuff i here!!! Your doodle-like figures and faces are very, very interresting.
You seem to be marking highlights and shaded areas as your line flows, if that's unintentional it's awesome, if it's intentional it's a very very smart move, it makes the drawings so rich in information. Either way, keep doing it!!!
Great studies, the line quality is superb. Hope you keep on posting .
