Cool shit man. Those sunglasses had to have been a pain in the arse. All those angles....careful lines....don't know how you did it . Fantastic progression.
Teap- thanks, ye I like to experiment. I often comes back to charcoal cause I like it the most but all mediums are worth a shot and gives you new ideas. Yea those darks are always scary, read your comment and I really tried to make the dark really dark on this last one I hope it shows.
LT- Warms my heart m8
Deadly- thank u, yea they were hard but I learned alot. Careful watching those lines and curves. Thinking the last one turned out quite nice. glad u keep on pushing me.
sorry for bad pics, phone camera :/
last pair of sunglasses for now, 5.5 hour work with mechanical pencil 2mm hb, a 0.5mm 2b and stopmpher. This is still life work and I have a headache now when its done haha because I forogt to eat and drink while I drew this. Need some rest so will not write more than this. oh btw. The main quest was to try and get those reflections in the glass, reflections are from shelfs, sunlight on the wall, those two round are the lamp and then some reflections are from the fabric it lays upon.
note to self - still life is fun and you learn alot, mostly to see, where is it darkest, where comes the light in and so on. Very good study will do more but with other objects.
Bad. Ass. Man.
Almost looks photographic. Thanks for the crit BTW, I need more of those!
I can't offer any critiques on that, it's fantastic. Maybe an occlusion shadow would have worked...like, the darkest shadows happen where forms meet other forms. So where the sunglasses touch the ground, it would probably be a little bit darker underneath. I'm not sure, maybe your lighting set up didn't have that in it.
Keep it up....you're going to make it to the top in no time man. Just keep practicing hard. Blood, sweat, and tears for the both of us! Cheers!
great study again with the sunglasses bud! pushing the darks has really improved the study and it seems more life-like :3
don't neglect your health when you get caught up in your own art!
Deadly - thank u !! almost look photoreal, well theres a comment which makes my heart jump. np m8, we help each other you know. good critiqe about the shadow, you are likely right, will think about that for next time. I did go a lot darker this time though with my darkest parts Blood, sweat and tears bro!
Teapo - thank u and I will try not too cheers
this is some critique from myself and from my brother. I have used fixative so I cant change it now but I wanted to upload this so I can look back and remember what I need to do better. You can always do better, need to push myself to the limit.
Note to self - charcoal seems to be what I am best at, also this is what I like the most.
forgot to say that I would really appreciate if you answered the poll thanks!
boy thats a lot of sunglasses.
i like the cezanneish watrcolour, maybe work it more, it doesnt look quite finished yet.

Velocity- thank u ye it could use some more work indeed. cheers
I really need to learn how to sketch faces. I am watching a movie, pausing and sketching as many faces that I can find. I know they look horrible but I need to practice on this and wanna show u guys im working.
How to simplify a face is hard. I am using 10-60 sec on each face. will try use some other pens.
from tv. very quick sketches, need to practice on this. Thinking it looks better than the others.
Minly practicing simple expressions and characteristics
I am still around. been working on a massive project. Have been using around 3000 beads to build a famous building and this has taken around 25 hours to complete. will show u tomorrow I believe so stay tuned. Soon I will have three weeks of time to just practice on one thing, thinking portraits with water colors or ink maybe peace out
have a great night
TV sketches huh? I should try that. It's like gesture drawing but with only the head! BRILLIANT! and yeah, you're right about the blending thing. I need to start getting used to that and get away from some of the more scratchy lines I've been producing while shading.
and I just want to thank you, man. You've been there with me since the beginning of my art, and it'll only get better as we both to continue to grow together. So here's a cheer to us! And your awesome progress!
Awesome sketchbook dude! I love the hand studies in the last few pages. I like the idea that you have with the sunglasses, but I would like to suggest that you do more studies of simpler objects in perspective. Specifically cylindrical objects like cups, bottles, jars, vases and such can really help you think about what you're drawing in 3 dimensions. Follow the form of the object and try to understand how the object exists in space. They don't have to be long and tedious; they can be smaller, quicker studies where you focus more on the general shapes and less on the details. But I think those can really help you on more complex forms when you imagine them as simple polygonal shapes strung together. Keep up the good work!
Great job on that real-life sunglasses.
I just talked to Kiefer Sutherland, he
was at my place, we had a few beers, and
we were browsing through your sketchbook.
He was also amazed with your improvement.
You have influenced us all with your fantastic work.
After he throw up on my Persian carpet imported from
Russia. Keep up with the good stuff.
for a year and half.. ur making great progress... this is amazing speed.. in 3 years u will do wonders.. keep on working hard like ur already doing
i love to do everything and learn everything... i hate to be cornered in one place.. i believe u can be anything u want... Your mind is limitless... check out my sketchbook ... u will find a bit of everything
Deadly- Yeaj, but they were hard. I need to study more faces. The next few weeks I will be doing faces with water colors, hoping this will make me learn alot. You are on your way m8, glad u think about the critique, just keep going, you have improved so much u know. Thanks you too! I am glad that we can help each other out and that we keep on pushing each other to reach higher. Your a tru art net friend. take care and please dont stop visiting my sb, I would seriously get very sad.
Dierat- thanks thats a good tip. I havnt really done that at all, cause its boring. I often does harder things that I can manage haha. I will try that out soon, promiss.
LtP- thank u, I worked hard. haha oh u made my day with that comment! you are to kind, say thanks to your friend, he and u made me smile Beer is good but not to many haha. I am glad u see improvement m8. cheers
Rain-oh thanks, I am very glad to hear that u think I am getting better. Really really thanks take care now
Allright here is my tower haha. 25 hours work later. I will tell you this to begin with. This is not art, this is a study and a test of my patience. I also wanted to try using something I havnt used before and to see how far I could go using beads. This building has no feeling or though behind it, this is in my opinion not art because of these criterias.
Even though I am pleased with the result, I was angry alot of times but I kept going all weekend. I grow when I do these things, I see that I can manage to go all the way to the final result that I had in mind to begin with. This was a big wakeup call for me, I can do so much more than I believe.
ref - photo. 3000 beads, 50cm tall, here u go. and yeah, it glows in the dark!
btw. I am doing a still life painting in school with acrylics, will show u tomorrow the progress. Acrylic is hard and dries very fast but still kind of fun. Though I like water colors more right now. But it is good to try new things
Haha the tower is so cool! Really nice! Like it a lot
Bethany- thank u. I try to test my limits and to test different approaches on art. Its fun to experiment
allright this still life painting is almost finished. I only had a day and a half in school to work with it so need to keep on going with my other assignments. But I will get back to work and just make some small adjustments and details.
This is my first serious acrylic painting. I think acrylic is kind of fun actually, will do another tomorrow but that will not be still life. Thinking a portrait maybe or a scary alley.
I had a hard time with the angles of the train carts and the perspective of them. I didnt nail it I know but this was as good as I could make it in this time. But this really learned me to look for angles which is so important when painting. I learned how to blend colors together better and that some colors in real life are not only what they look like. I also learned that shadows are not black. In this painting I havnt used black, the darker areas are dark blue and brown blended mostly.
allright. the first pics are some studies before I started, I also sketched up a bit more detailed on the canvas but I didnt take a photo of that. I also wanted to show u how my still life setup looked like.
I Wanted to have a feeling of an old shoemakers house. Almost everything is made of wood and iron, plastic was not yet invented. The father tries to sell shoes to afford food and shelter for the rest of the family. It is November. The mother is smoking, looking out at the cold night through the window. The children are sleeping. They had left some toys at the table where their father has his work tools. If the father will have a few hours of sleep the day has been good and hopefully; tomorrow he will make some money so they can afford bread.
still life painting is done. Now starting on the Joker with acrylic, excited but scared to shit
The still life painting is beautiful, no crits whatsoever on that! You inspire me to wanna try it myself, you make it look so easy. You and acrylic really belong together Really looking forward to see how the joker turnes out! So keep posting more of this amazing stuff!
That acrylic painting is gorrrgeous :o Moarr!
Rebecka- thank u oh the joker was painted over because I placed him wrong in the pic but will paint him another time, now I will do faces forawhile.
Salt- thank u!!!
LtP- thanks, kind thing to say.
Allright guys. I have a 3 week project were I will try to get better at painting portraits with water colors, a hard and kind of an odd combination but I think it will be fun. I started yesterday.
the first one was a quick face I did without any sketches, like a watercolor sketch. the second I did a quick sketch with charcoal first, around 20 min total. will try to do like 100 of these so hopefully I will get better at drawing faces and coloring them.
now I will try to sketch something totally from memory, will try to do this more often because I really suck at it and never does it.
have a great day.
Holy crap dude, nice still life painting!
And don't worry man, I won't quit visiting. I enjoy seeing you improve too much. Dude, keep doing these traditional paintings! I think you'll learn a ton with them!!
Parsa- thanks long time since u were here, glad u see improvement.
Deadly- glad u wont leave me bro haha. thanks, good to have u hear encouraging me. take care now
I will do atleast one portrait each day now for three weeks, probably more than one some days too when Im feeling productive.
1. bad posemaniac studies, long time I did those
5. after I did some small things in photoshop to see my errors, looking better here I think.
note to self - do less fat faces, they are often more narrow than u think. go for more values with ur coloring and for darker colors.
forgot to ask - do u see who the last guy is? first one gets a hypothetical golden star
yesterdays portrait, a girl from pulp fiction. hoping I am going forward, in three weeks I want to have done a really nice looking water color portrait.
Tried to go for darker values, still need to push em more. hard with watercolors though. enjoy. today I will try a totally different approach on a portrait. stay tuned
thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. Lovely stuff here, allot of experimenting, looks like fun.
Jeremy- np m8, fun to see what others are up too. thanks I try to experiment alot to find what I like
today I wanted to go with a square brush and I didnt use wet in wet. I just started painting with color on the sketch. went from light colors to darker colors in the end. looking alot different than the others. just experimenting with styles to find what suits me.
thinking of making a portrait with all wrong colors but with the right lights and darks to see what that looks like.
see who it is?
