Good stuff here, making progress. Nice variety of mediums. This one's my favorite: http://www.projectsole.ca/gallery/al...s/scan0062.jpg, really well done...
thanks for stopping by my book.
This is a cool thread. You are a quick learner. You shading foundation is strong. I Usually have a different approach than many. I try and leave alot of the outline of the entire figure light. Usually lighter than anything in the piece. Sometimes missing completely. A light source I find is usually key to creating illusions. making them stand out. My anatomy isn't strong from a sense. i usually create anatomy then render it. Alot of the times I like to just use scribbles and shapes with nothing in mind. And then squint and see what appears. Squinting for me is a big part in my process. Helps alot in shading.
Another important part is finding some good tunes. Create an atmosphere and relax and let go. feel. Music for me anyways has been invaluable in developing my style.
keep up the good work. nice to see this. Alot of people say they wish they could draw, but thats as far as it goes. You are an inspiration big time.
Zord. hey, THx For Droppin man
my watercolour set is pretty small and advanced, portable, and dont need water, and doesnt get much messy.
its got 2 pallets which are its covers. Top and buttom,
And for the brush, i use some brushes, that have a Tube for Water, so i just pres and use it, , its pretty neat and good. Works aewsum for me,. MY BABY
also u i use the other brush, for ink, i filled it with ink, and i think uve seen my ink works, its abvious.
_^SlayeR^_. thx for coming, THanks
max1975. heyoo, THx for droppin by, , ya that one is my fac too. Pencil and bit ink.
Dragonflysly. thank u . Ur works are veery inspiring., i mean, it was mornin i was checkin it, and it tuned me out, for couple crazy self portirats. ill post it, when im done.
yes, sometimes it happend for me too, just squinting on the page. messin arond with the poses. or just drwaing a simplified form , or an a part of body , anatomical form, and i would improve it, and go crazy on its other parts.
Ok, CA.org had some problems, i couldnt see any of the replies u guyz did, SINCE the last post tha Dragonflysly did, I LOVE U MAN< thx for bringin my sb alive again
SO, its on again, GOtta do SOme scans.
THank u all for checking
I want a watercolor set like that! :0
...I'm so envious now...
I've been wondering how to make watercolors more portable (and I'm not very smart or crafty or anything, so... I haven't been making much progress with that, haha ), and that seems quite brilliant.
Interesting stuff! A lot of nice lines.
The set is a Winsor Newton Cotman Compact set and the brushes are Pentel Tria brushpens. Theyre both pretty cheap and damn portable!
By the way Amir, that bottom right pan is still empty, might wanna put something in there and quit wasting space
Also, stop bumping without showing artwork first you lazy bum!
Those figures and watercolours are looking top-notch as usual. Loving the surrealistic stuff, as well. It's refreshingly unique and creative, to say the least.
More head studies! You're coming along, but some of your figure studies have facial features that look wonky, or heads placed oddly. A little practice and you'll be on fire, since they're the only flaw I can really find. All in all, things are looking fantastic as per usual.
Now post another big dump. Do it! Gogo draw!
SirGreenSock jaajaa. scannin takes so much time. but i did it
Ryn thanks for checkin/ thx for the encouragements yey u gotta check my new stuff too ok?

wasnt really happy with wt i got at the end, probablly gonna do one more for portfolio. :/
Came out nice, but i was struglling with the leeft eye of the sp in the middle
Drew my reflection in the windoes in the subway train.
its gonna be a funny wip
and the last version of this. not gonna work on it more.
COmments and critiques are WELCOME
Dude I told you to lay off the hot sauce and now your hand melted. :shamefulno:
WIP's look good, finish em up fast so you can stick em in the folio. I think I already told you, but the charcoal self portrait(s) looks great!
Make sure to work tightly and make those wip's clean and finished!
Hey, heroic, nice batch of updates. Nice to get to know what your watercolourset looks like. Haven't tried those pens yet, that you can fill with water, am rather sceptical about em though. I'm one of those oldscool guys who thinks that nothing can top a set of Watercolours from St. Petersburgh and an original male sibirian redmarten tailfeather brush. (Those brushes are fucking expensive though. Mine cost me bucks, and you'd have to spend up to 400 on the bigger versions .
Anyway, watecolours are cool and I'm glad you're using em. Have I told you to get some watercolourpaper yet? Can't remember but you ought give it a try.
Like your last sp a lot. Interesting version.
Can't say much on last digital. Hard to get for me what you're trying to say.
Anyways, lifedrawings came out real nice. Like the linework and hetching.
Ooh, I love that blotchy style of colouring you're doing. Very emotive. And good, more face studies!
More of the same, as far as feedback goes. You're doing well, focusing on what you need to, and being committed. Just keep doing what you're doing.
Caf in indigo,
Master Study From Rembrant- with GEll mEdium, Came out pretty FUNnY.
SirGreenSock- YeSir, ASAP, ill get onthe wips. Ill defenitly do more charcoal sps. before Saturday.. U gotta gimme some ;D
That fat kid- Heyoo, THx .
blacky- d00d, zup, thx dropping by,, ill buy u one and whenever i got there, ill give it to ya / .. yaa, the sp is really amazingly,, "HOT,,, burns burns"
Ryn- THank you very much, THx for the encouragments..
Really Really appriciated. you and others really keep me moving.
THank u all.
DOnt have much time to scan, doing Portfolio stuff. But WILL DEFENITLY scan some, and kick some ass for u, hows that? :teeth
hey its been a while since i last checked here. Coming along. Your figure drawings are getting a lot better and i like seeing those sketches at coffee shops, they can be the best ones sometimes. Pretty good feet drawings
In your self portrait, it looks like your head is tilted up but your nose is really long and is pointing down. Thats probably why it look a little funny because you should be seeing underneath the nose more.
The cafe picture is GREAT! It manages to be simplistic, but still really gets the point across. Perspective looks spot on. Only thing I would change is to possibly darken the lines of the table in the foreground. It's so close, it should really stand out more than, say, the menus. Remember, things tend to get lighter and more faint as they become farther away. This helps to establish a perspective beyond just the 'technical' standpoint.
The master study on the bottom is quite nice, too. It may have not been the intended effect, but the texturing looks really interesting.
Hope to see more tomorrow. Keep it up!
4 whole days since your last update! I'm hoping you didn't get hit by a car or something.
Draw draw draw!
AM SO BAD< AM I NOT?

TMr, ill give yall some update.
Good to see you're back again. Don't feel bad about taking a break every once and a while. It'll keep you sane, and you deserve it anyway.
And don't get too worried about updating every day. Just make sure you draw every day; that's the important part.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for your acceptance into Sheridan. I'm sure you'll do fine.
DONT KILL ME PEOPLE

CHaracter design, done in OC,

What's up, heroic? This sketchbook of yours is coming along really nicely. I'm really diggin this last character design of yours. Good lines. Just make sure to keep working on your anatomy. Those life drawings look like they could be even better with a little bit more practice. Keep it up!
That chick at the top of your last post is AWESOME! I LOVE it! It's so clean and perfect. Everything looks so right, and the character design is unique and interesting, to boot.
You should colour it! It would look even more awesome coloured. Do it do it!
DOOD, AMI, double ew tee eff man. Where's the update?!?! Not updating is okay... but not sketching?!?! WHAT?! Tsk tsk, my friend. Just kidding, we're all looking forward to the next huge update... right? RIGHT? Well over-usage of capslock is killing this post, so I will leave this be and say we'll be looking forward to the next update-bitty.
