The first thing I was poked over was not having a sketchbook since I've been here, so I decided to take some pages right out of my actual sketchbook.
More pages with hand studies that I did last night.
There was a Disney assignment from a study group that I just joined. Decided to hop on that even though it was late. I chose to study Houdini from the lilo and stitch series.
Wanted to study a bit more color than value here, monotone. Just seeing what I knew so far, and I think I need to look for ways to add more detail to this, and study surfaces a bit more.
Hopefully these won't be too risque or off topic. These are still out of my sketchbook.
Decided to study a bit with crystals, and I didn't realize just how many things I was bringing in when I really got into this. Had to work with the following: Perspective, light, color, value, shadows, texture, and depth. Probably a few other things I either forgot, or don't know of yet, but I'll get there.
Practicing with texture, but I feel like I'm jumping too far ahead, so I'm going to go back.
Some studies and a few things I assigned myself to study this week.
Studies in painting.

Francisco de Zurbarán’s Lamb of God
Caterpillar of a hawkmoth - found through a bing search
Lastly, just something I did a long time ago off the top of my head when I was dicking around with an underworld-ish theme.
Some older things I forgot to upload.
Everything out of my sketchbook from last week. My gesture drawings are going to the quickposes thread.
A few things I've worked on last week. Not as much, because I was doing a bunch of typing, developing this fox character.
Nice start! Keep working on anatomy, from life as much as possible!
Hey Ren! Nice to see you here
Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook.
Okay now I'll get to the advicing!
Soooo I see you working hard! I am definitely feeling #4 post. That is some nice handywork there. So smooth.
For advice that others haven't given you, I'd say you should probably work on the values of all your colored pieces.
They don't seem to have too much range, if that makes sense.
You could fix this by practicing a value scale and reaching for the darkest and lightest,
and having more than just a few inbetween.
For example, #9 post, wow great improvement from earlier works!
But see if you look at the man's sleeve it should be apparent that you could have gone even lighter.
The lamb below could be darker,
and the catepillar underneath that could be both lighter and darker!.
So when I mentioned a value scale, I mean a bar. When you shade a bar you see that there is obviously a darkest and lightest,
but inbetween there are many many different tones. I hope this makes sense to you.
I'll add more advice as you upload more in the future.
Although what I've stated is a bit basic, it really makes a difference in all art.
It adds more depth and makes it more alive.
Have fun arting~
A couple of studies assigned by skype groups
Some finished drawings
Been a bit lazy, but still studying lots. Might have another set of pics, or a new tablet. In the mean time, here's a gay bunny.
Going to cut off all of my older unfinished works to start new things.
Hey momo! Glad to see some new stuff from you ^ _ ^
AHHAH Ahhh I love your study of the butts, I enjoy drawing them as well.
Something I guess I didn't notice before is that you have a nice ability to sense volume and form.
Yarghhhh I'm still having troubles with that.
Advice: Okay so I'm going to suggest advice for some areas that I am having issues with...Funny how when you notice your own strengths or weaknesses it becomes more apparent in anothers' artwork XD. For your last post you should think about how the objects' edges interact with the space behind them...The apples edges are kinda jaggy and I can tell from the reference they shouldn't be like that ( plus is that a drawing of an apple you're referencing?? ). Your previous still lives don't seem to have such an issue... Theyve got a nice balance between very sharp and soft edges ( #4, #7 post )You should also think about how the object itself interacts with the background.I believe there should be some reflecting light from the objects, so you should study some more still lives to get a hang of both of these issues...or at least that's what I did and it helped! keep your drawing studies up, and maybe do even more~ heehe
Yes it was a vector image I decided to reference, and I'm thinking of doing a lot more still life, especially with the digital medium so I can get used to color and playing around with brushes. Thanks for the advice btw c:
one more that I forgot
Some studies with notes I took on anatomy, still got a few more I want to finish and upload
Been a while but I finished filling up the smaller sketchbook I had and now I've moved onto a larger sketchbook, but it can't fit on my scanner so I had to do some crappy photo shoots.
When you mention thinking about how it interacts with the background, do you mean composition wise?
