Kezhi-Thanks! The sculptures are just painted with the good 'ol brush and acrylics.
JeremyG- Thank you and agreed on the life drawings. actually I thnk I need to just put up moar stuff!
Here is a quick doodle before bed still dicking around with REALLY simple forms, saw Daves thrash thoughts on DA and was inspired to do a goofy character. Inebriated drawing can be so relaxing. As always thanks for looking and cheers!
I've been admiring your sculptures on various other forums. Really nice to see you also have a SB here.
I really dig those cloaked figures. Yeah study alot etc. You got some awesome ideas in your head, Keep them coming.
Rotor- Thanks man! Cool to hear you frequent some of the other forums I've posted those sculpts on. And word on the cloaked figures, I think I want to do some real large drawings, more refined and planned out.
Well, dicked around on this one a little more, really not learning anything doing this stuff so its on to something more helpful. Thanks for looking and goooooooooo blazers.
Funny style but they're cool.
Zerdron-Thanks, yea he's a bit silly.
Here are a few of the knee pages I did, 2 figs without ref that wern't so bad I don't want to show 'em and some life drawings from this morning. The intro to painting teacher let me sit in the back of the room and draw the model in my SB, he's a swell guy. For some reason my crop tool is all screwed up, it just erases the whole image when I hit enter and I think the photobucket one screwed up all my lines. ARGHHHH.
so many pages... must... draw.. more. I'm soon done with bridgmans constructive anatomy. After that I'll revise it, pump out a multum of pages like you do. Oh it's gonna be good
Sweet as pie.. your work is
When I looked at those Bridgman studies all I could think was "Now that's how it's done". They look stellar by the way...
Your figurines are so badass...I love how gritty and raw yet colourful they are...excellent work...
One suggestion though...you've got to draw figures from life more often!
Best wishes to you! Keep up the hard work!
Your drawings of figures are a bit jumbled. When looking at one of your figure drawings, you'll see a head... and it looks okay... you'll see a leg, and it looks reasonable. But look at the whole figure, and the forms don't relate... theres nothing holding the figure together.
When you draw the side of a ribcage, draw the other side at the same time.
When you draw a head, draw it the same way. Arm? Draw both. Eyes? Draw both. And always try to relate what you've drawn to what you're about to draw.
This is done through many techniques. One of the techniques is coincident lines. You simply run a line through a body part and see what OTHER parts it runs through. This can line things up on verticals, horizontals... and on angled lines. Try it. You need something to tie your figures together and relate all the parts.
Good Bridgman work.
Dude I've been looking for a blazer fan for the longest time on CA! About freakin time. Love your work and your observational paintings. Your really good with textures and and surfaces. I agree with P Sage on your anatomy but I see improvement from where you started from. Props to you man and all your hard work. Don't stop drawing.
that sculpure stuff rockz,man.
u training much anatomy,try to implement fresh skillz on gesture studys from mind,
or some octos like hoghart does,the all the peaces of puzzle will come together.
Hehehe, good stuff in here, your pencil rendering looks really solid, and i can already see improvement from your crimson daggers work! I should get in on that some time. Lovely work with the sculptures too, what scale are these guys at?
and hahah, love the life drawing of the fat man using the little guy as a stool, hahah!
Keep at it!
KingKostas-Thanks for stopping by man and thanks!
p sage-Thanks for the crit man, its really appreciated. I'll keep that in mind when I'm drawing now, I've always felt my figurers were kind of disjointed. Cheers.
cubesoflard-thanks for stopping by, we've got the 8th spot right now 4 games of memphis, gooooooo blaaaaaaazers.
Alamo C:Thanks for stopping by thanks for the suggestions, cheers.
AustenFM- Thanks! The smallest of the sculpts, the guy with two swords was about 58mm and the others are much larger, between 150-175mm.
Well I've been uploading lots of studies and figured I'd keep those just in the book for now as I absorb p sages lovely crit, and start scanning in stuff from imagination. As always, thanks for looking and comments and crits are always appreciated. The hulk was reffed from a comic illustration on google and so was the asian looking girl. Cheers.
The monster dude is awesome, I love the tendrils of spit flying everywhere.
Love the update! I peek in here whenever I need to draw more. Your random comments on your studies are always amusing.
Awesome stuff in here.
Love the anatomy studies, and your characters are kick ass! thanks for the help btw, I am checking out the loomis stuff right now.
Dope sketches man, especially dig the one coming after the centaur-guy. Watch out with the legs though, many of them seem bulky (as you wrote). I'd say the one you think has too long legs is the one with the best legs proportioned to the rest of the body.
Ofc.this depends on which look you're after. I prefer the supermodel lowerbody-upperbody ratio
! those sculptures! i can totally see you getting involved with zbrush
brilliant stuff, loving the progression and pencil work - keep it up!
Cool stuff, everythings looks very well designed and sketched. The only thing i noticed and could crit on are that the legs on some of ure characters look a little bit short, but that could also be a part of ure own visual style.
I especially like the clock demon characters, you should take them further with some paint etc!
You exemplify everything a sketchbook should be. You're improving incredibly quickly, and you're learning from your studies in a way that very few people manage to do in that amount of time.
That's the way to do it man. Do your studies, but don't just copy - understand, and then try it on your own. You've got it down - and look at you go. I'm very excited to see where this all goes.
I'd like to see you take some of those characters into photoshop and throw some paint on them, but I'm also not about to mess with the flow you've got going now. It's working.
Thanks for stopping by my book. Cheers to you.
Lovely, lovely, lovely stuff!
I was gonna say to apply your studies more but damn you beat me to it!
The latest pencils are a huge jump forward and I really wish the scans were better quality so I could get a better look at the line work and rendering
Kicking it maaaanng! Keep on doing this and I am really looking forward to more
Blondebeard-Thank you sir!
Spaztastic-Thanks for stopping by, glad I could help out!
DStrax-Thanks, yea I'm really trying to retain all of this in my head, thanks for stopping by.
Defiler-Thanks for the crit, I really need to pay more attention when I'm blocking in the initial shapes. Cheers.
Teroteki-Cheers! Yea, I need to figure out how to get a copy of zbrush to goof around with.
Ragnj-Thanks, I'm planning on putting some paint on those sketches once school's over and done with.
Two Listen-Wow, thanks man keep rocking it, you've got some good stuff going on in your book.
lilnebo-Thanks man, I have to say your diligence is inspiring, I remember checking your book out when it first started and damn you've gotten a lot better. Thanks for stopping by.
Well I now know what I really need to be focusing on when doing character work, I need to get some master study started at some point, and moooooore still lifes, but here are some gribblies I drew duriing a history class today. I also extended the legs on the army dude a bit, I think for the better? Anyways, thanks for checking out my SB! and comments and crits are much appreciated. Off to buy a second monitor, woot woot, Cheers.
North Pole-Thanks for looking! You've got some lovely drawings yourself!
JsN-Thanks, I'm looking to push a lot of them digitally, see below.
Jozulus-Thanks for checking my SB out and cheers!
DefiledVisions-Hehehe, we aren't getting any younger and boooyyyy, don't make me scan all my stuff.
Anyways, I only have access to the school scanner and the labs in use alllll the time soo, anybody reading this have any good reccomendations for good scanners that aren't like 500 dollars? Anyways in the meantime I plan on painting up as many as these characters as I can squeeze in amongst work. As always thanks for checking my book out, I really still feel like I dont have any idea on what I'm doing but heres a quick snap of where I'm at with the coloring on this guy, about 2 hours so far I think, beers beers beers, its friday sorry for the ramble. Really would appreciate some crits on this dude, neeeeeed to paaaaiiiiint moooaaaaarrrrrr.
