Thanks for stopping by my Sketchbook the other day!
I've got to say nice work on your figure studies and I love the cartoony style you have.
Keep posting mate, it's a pleasure watching what you come up with.
Is it possible that I was away so long from this beautiful place?
I will and I could never forgive myself because of this, and I want
to apologize. As the snowy air drifted in, your senses and art quality
went up hill. I can see the improvements in the eyes and minds of
your pencil drawn characters. Your cartoony characters are helping
you to understand form shapes and values through fun. Spiderman
in various perspectives, and viewed from top and below angles are
a real eye openers in your future conquests. I really enjoy watching
someones work like your is, cause you are making hard steps on
an easy way, turning heavy weights to fun and joy. It’s a bad thing
that you feelig a bit low and got that cold, but don’t worry it will
get better, and you will get strong once more. Many vitamins,
sleep enough and try to draw from bed. And stay away from
beer and heavy booze for now. You will be great in no time.
Till our next meeting, get healthy and be good.
@Ltplissken thank you so much and i do hope yo come back regulary because i do not plan on stopping im gonna work my ass off, fuck the cold hahaha and about drawing from bed i tried it actually and i cant do it, you see i dont have a BED hahaha i sleep in a hammock so the thing keeps on moving while i just want to draw hahahaha
@fantastico Glad to see you could come by, thanks for the support!
@Christoffer thank you so much man, i did see a gigantic ammount of improvement this past year, but it was all because i gave it the hours of work and it payed off i hope i can make another breakthrough this following year
maan my cold has been putting me down a bit, but i took my meds and i feel a bit clearer today so im gonna work a bit on the chow, i want to STUDY before working on the actual design again, i have a somwhat clear image but i cant manage to put it in the canvas, will work on bows today and more archer poses and cloaks since that is what i waht my goblin assasin to be, a lethal sniper at the orders of the king who sole purpose its to defeat the enemys of the kingdom
You got some good sketches and improving pretty fast, try some value studies.
Seems like everyone is already pointing this out, but you're improving really fast! Quickly went through your sketchbook and the difference between the first page and the last two pages is massive. Awesome, dude But I'd like to see more colors in your work, that would add another dimension to them.
hey man you are really moving along at a good pace don't forget to also add in some life studies. All that real world knowledge will transfer right back into your imaginative work and be real important when you start working in colour.
Thanks for visiting me. You have a good start! You are improving so much and so fast! You're chow looks interesting hope you post the final soon =D.
you're putting so much effort into your figure drawing man! try doing a painting!
check out my : SKETCHBOOK: All critiques much needed and WELCOMED!
@eternal aprentice: yeah i cheked him out and im still picking up the pieces of my brain from the floor :00000
@peteJ thanks for the support and i want to but i dont know where to start im gonna do more still lifes and get some values on them
@leaderofzombies: thanks for the compliments and yeah i saw improvement as well ! and about colors im working on it, im currently informing myself so i can apply it later
@ja1307: hey thanks for comming by! i want to do more from life as well, im gonna start a series of selfportraits i think, anyways im gonna try to do as much stuff as i can
@wingal: hey thanks for stopping by, i worked more on the chow today
@wutangclan: hey sure i want to do a couple of landscapes with color and some with grayscale
@anthonycarvey: hahaha you are so right, im gonna push myself further each time
thank you so much guys its so awesome to know that everyone sees progress, really its not that much i still have a long long way to go, but im getting there im working hard and that is what counts i worked alot more on my chow did some studies and worked some poses to get the image for my design its the first time i do this kind of thing it feels good to train my brain to be mroe creative, i will come back to studies soon i need alooot more of those both still lifes and landscapes! all i have today is some quick digital stuff i will upload stuff from my notebook tomorrow
Hi mate. Thank you for coming to my SB and for the advices! You're absolutely right: fundamentals are the nourishment for artists. And praise to your studies. So much and inspiring. Now both keep going!
"The fulfillment of oneself is achieved with victory over their challenges"
@lucarky hey thanks for stopping by! and about fundamentals i think i want to go back to the basics sometime in the next months, learning by myself really its all about how much knowledge i can muster at any given time so i have to keep it all under control or else i go all apeshit and draw only crappy stuff
well a couple of pages full of warm ups and some 60 second figures, man i love doing fast figures its like a game hahaha, figuring out the pose and then felshing it, if you do it well you ahve a couple of seconds to do details! its all good fun, what i think im doing wrong its NOT doing longer studies, im gonna stsrt doing some 20 or 30 quick poses and 10 or 5 of a MINIMUM of 15 minutes because heck i want to start figuring out how to trasnfer all of this into my stuff from head, the chow is coming kind of bad but im on my way, i dont know if i will be able to finish it within the deadline anyhow here is the prettier stuff i have haha
I agree with Kamkael33t, also study Dynamic figure drawing. it'll help a shit load!
dude youve made some nice progress since the beginning of this sb, your lines have gotten much better, that last portrait was great, i wanna see some color though, dont be a wuss like me nd wait forever to practice color, keep at it!
Help me improve!
@kamikazel33t hey thats a great suggestion, tomorrow i want to get more structure into my drawing sessions i believe that is going to speed up my progress
@yemi775 hey thanks for coming by! i want to branch out a bit more so im gonna focus a bit on landscapes for now but i do plan doing more dynamic figure drawings
@liberty thank you so much for stopping! you just nailed my biggest flaw, my inabilty to go from sketch to finished piece, or rather the insecurities that come with it, im working on it i want to get into color theory and light but im thinking on how to approach all of this without my head exploding in the process
@isaacES hey man thanks for the advice actually i think i took long enough myself, i want to destroy this barrier and geto some color going in this sb
hey, leo here hahaha, didnt do as much as i wanted today, a couple stills here and there, i did a bunch of quick gestures on maximus and did a digital sketch of him and tried my best to fit more values in there hahaha, i need to draw more and longer drawings!
good morning everyone! well im dropping my notebook stuff, GOD DAMN my pen sketches suck, but i dont care i can see two ways that this is gonna go down, either i shot myself in the head or they improve and like hell im shooting myself that shit hurts! so more pen for me hahaha more shitty drawings for you! i noticed something too, writing down the personality of the caracter and some traits helps me better get their personality i dont know if that translates in my drawings but it deffinetly changes the way I think about them.
also practiced on my portraits, these are ALL 2 min portraits im gonna do longer ones but first i want to get those big shapes right and quick i can practice details later
today im gonna work all day on trying to finish all my ref folder, i downloaded some landscapes so i can try doing some in digital lets see how it goes
