Some great stuff here Psychobuddy! Love your colors, specially the clouds in #315
Keep 'em coming
Sushy: Hey!! Thanks a ton...I dunno if I'll ever do anything with them...it's more of my mind just letting of steam.
So the girlfriend says I need to post more things that are from my mind...I agree with her...I also say I need to actually do a ton more from my head as well...
Oh and that shitty study proves that I have no idea what I'm doing...@_@
The dude with the mustache thinks he's a badass.
I think you should try to work on structure a little more, your line quality is great and your lighting is coming along, but a good bit of your figures are croked.
keep it up.
Tenminutedrawing - awesome learn to draw series http://www.youtube.com/user/moatddtutorials
A short list of my favorite tutorials http://surfandsnow.deviantart.com/journal/22269212/
Loved the dude with mustache, looks like it was inked. That black and white style looks really cool, reminds me of Alchemy ( http://al.chemy.org/ ). But you need to tighten it up a bit, so that shapes can be understood better. Look into some Frank Miller for inspiration.
I really like your black and white doodles, they have a good sense of lighting about them and some really nice texture in places, if that makes sense. Some more figure studies might help with balance and weight with your people, even if they aren't very imaginative.
surfandsnow: Hey thanks man, yeah for sure...I really have that problem haha...it's something to keep in mind thanks for pointing it out ^_^
Januz: Thanks...and yeah I totally think of alchemy when I trying these out...but yeah you're right...a lot of it gets totally lost...it's weird I find it super easy to think in blank and white...but at the same time my mind gets jumbled in it all GAH XD
Caspia: Thanks a ton ^_^ and yeah you're totally right I've gotta keep brushing up on that anatomy.
Hey dudes and dudettes XD Here's some digital stuff I was playing with pencils today, sorry no scanner means I look lazy O_O Anyway figures trying to work on what everyone said...and a generic monster thing. ^_^
to "see" something within an abstract black shape and to bring it to conception is a talent that cant be taught.... cool stuff man!
It may be odd building out of black but it seems to be working! I would suggest trying to bring back some of the constrast into the value differences, the graphic punch of the black and white has been lost somewhat but could be recovered if you brought the lights and darks backmore like the original.
Otherwise great job on the other works in the sketchbook , the studies are coming along nicely and are working for you.
Sean McClain: Thanks man that's an awesome compliment cause you're a badass I've drooled over your stuff man...
MacTire: Thanks so much, you're awesome...and yeah you're totally right I just looked at it again, it looks totally wishy.
So it seems I picked a great day to update, the day that Pkmike, Gloominati, and Dave Rapoza choose to update...gah way to feel lack lustre about myself...but yeah uhm I've been doing daily updates so I guess I was here first.
Anywhooo here's some random stuff uhm shitty half finished studies...they are so crappy I was trying out a few different ways of doing things, what have I learned, I hate painting over lines, I hate painting out of nothing, and I hate painting out of blobs XD
Oh and there's some more crappy black and whites, those uhm weird looking ones really suck the totally nonsense ones I mean, the other ones suck less ^_^
Wow, kickass improvement since I last came here. The simple characters work really well, the last page is awesome. Have you considered doing some studies with only really rough black and white?
Nice to see the progress and improvements you've been doing in this SB.
Liking the black and white pieces. Really energetic.
Aaron_: Hey man welcome back ^_^ Yeah I totally have, I don't know what I would really get out of it, which is why I haven't yet. I dunno I think it would be really interesting to try out though.
PeterPrime: Thanks very much, compliments always make me feel good ^_^
Hey everyone sorry for a days absence, I'm back with todays work...it's pretty tiny, but I have no reasonable excuses...just gonna push harder tomorrow!
Hey, thanks for commenting on my own sketchbook. That last study of the eyes is beautaful!
Don't fret about digressing, I'm a terrible person for that as well. I think what you need to really crack down on is construction and then moving that construction into your mind's eye
Like for instance, draw on construction picture from a reference, then draw one with your mind's eye and then keep flipping it over with a mirror or photoshop until you got it working right.
I think your rendering is freakang sexay though.
I am going to be amazing! .
The eye studies are awesome, and i love the colour in the hand study ! killing it
Keep fighting the good fight dude! Every bit helps
good studies, man. it seems you really and uderstand shapes. and good from-head sketches some of them a really interesting. keep working)
Marlo: Hey thanks for the compliments ^_^ I'll look into what you said, I do need to work on construction though...hell I need to work on everything XD
JerryActric: Super cool man, thanks a bunch!
kidult: You're so right man!
Artezianin: Hey thanks a lot, thanks for stopping by!
Ahhhh it seems I can't get on a roll of posting without eventually disappearing for a week...oh well here's some stuff from today. Still life, still life, Chow sketch (that I'll never finish XD)
That guy with the key looks awesome, I would totally complete that painting.
Keep up! Solid progress on all fronts
