Hello everyone...I've been frequenting Conceptart.org for at least a year now just admiring everyones art.
Now I'm finally gonna start a sketchbook thanks to my friend PaperX's persistence at trying to get me to start one
Anyway I really really want to get into the CA Atelier...hopefully this sketchbook will help me improve.
The last two are studies of ingres i did with PaperX...you can see his studies over at his sketchbook http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=83177

good stuff - keep up with the studies and draw draw draw.
a note though, and you have probably already noticed - some of the legs on the first two papers are really weird/fucked
Hey man, first off, nice stuff.
You've got a lot of strengths going. I like how you render faces, eyes, and all that stuff. The blue pencil is really working for you, I like it. You should definitely work on some anatomy studies, but the figure studies you've got are really great. Especially the ones from the most recent post, you're really doing a great job with the forms of the muscles. Keep up the good work *watches*
yeah! some day soon nz is gunna take over the art world!
nice stuff you got here, and your 16! much time left for improvement the ingres study of reverend joseph church is very nice. great subtlety in your rendering.
keep it up man, we want more! i'm coming back for sure.... oops i rhymed, sorry
i gotta jump on the nz band wagon!
welcome man great start! a word of advice, whenever you get crits from kronos, listen extra hard, he picks up everything! hes got one of those freaky
eagle eye things going on.
great ingres work but you already know that, keep i up. awesome
or some? awesome...sorry
Hey guys thanks for the crits and comments.
Heres some stuff i did today. Proportions and more KChen studies.
dan liimatta : Thanks for the crit...will work more on it
Exocentric : haha i like the blue pencil too...its really soft and good for rendering...only downside is the lead snaps too often
Sirio_Brozzi : Yea your right...my punk janitor has a big head Thanks for the advice
Kronos : Haha thanks...I hope I improve quick though
Don-key : Ok will do
PS : guys...about the NZ thing...I'm actually singaporean and I flew back to singapore a few months ago after living in NZ for 4 years...I forgot to change my location thingy..my bad
paperX : Probably not
some sketches today...yes that is supposed to be solid snake in the first one
The second one is my WIP for the teen challenge
yes I need to work on drawing limbs and stuff...hopefully I can get some studies done tomorrow
My CHOW #61 entry WIP
Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls:
Any critiques or comments are much appreciated
Sorry for not doing any studies..too busy working on my teen challenge and CHOW entries...need to work faster lol
UPDATE...its 2am and I need to get some sleep....anyway..been working some more on my CHOW entry....he has a HUGE head and his face is kinda skewed...I'll try to fix that tomorrow

Hey, looking good. I really like the soft shading you're adding to the faces. You do a great job of defining the features. The blue pencil studies are another one of my favorite things here...really nifty. You've got a really unique style going here, keep developing your anatomy skills, it's looking good.
That's some beautiful shading on your Teen Challenge piece...so pretty. Nice cast shadow on the face and everything.
I think on your CHoW you could maybe add more darks to the piece? Or...hmm..dunno. It's obviously not in it's polished stage yet, I just think maybe having a wider spread of value in the piece could help. Keep it up! Paint away...
Exocentric :Thanks photoshop has a weird habit of making the images more saturated and darker than they actually are...so when i save it out as a jpeg it looks real washed out.
paperX : See above post ^^ :p
Ok guys I've been working on this all day. Bring on the crits!!!!!
like that tight linework xD
to improve : simplifie forms and shapes - dont start with realism start with easy geometrie - understand proportions volumes mass orientation in space then get more n more complex
a simplyfied spehere is a cube
(there are some rules of drawing u should be aware of and keep in ur mind all the time )
a quad = 4 angles per 360 degree
a circle = 360 angles per 360 degrees
got what i mean ? :>
if u look at wireframe picturs from 3d models u will see
keep up post more !!!
got reply give reply
Haha I'm really confused by your reply but I'll see what I can do with simplifying forms and stuff.
"got reply give reply"
I didn't give you a reply...or are you asking me to give you a reply?
Sorry I'm just really confused right now haha
Btw I checked out your sketchbook...awesome figures...and an insane amount of them done.
Great figure studies there,nice and confident line work...
and as for Chow,nice idea there...yeah i agree head is maybe too big but ok it is a strange octopus guy so i guess it doesnt matter....i cant crit your painting couse im clueless my self...i kinda admire anyone who can paint with painter
damn - one can see the studies at work in the later pieces - really good stuff
As for the digital piece - I got some problems with the stale composition/P.O.V. - though it can work, especially for calm mellow characters, your octoboy feels confined. Anyway I still like
I just worked on it a bit more and finally fixed his face.
-sideshowbob- : Thanks for the advicepld:
Blaz : Thanks...I used both photoshop and painter but mostly photoshop
dan liimatta : haha yea...I didn't even think about composition at all ...I just doodled something and went with it. Thanks for the crit.
UPDATE : Just a few KChen studies.......

paperX : Well then vote for me . Yea need more studies. Will do some hogarth tomorrow.
The first two are just some random stuffs from my mind. Tried to make up some poses and stuff.
The third is the beginnings of a self portrait. I'm going to attempt to make this as refined as possible.
Last is just a quick sketch from a still from the movie blood diamond
Sorry guys for not updating these few days....
amer-nazri : Hey thanks...I use hogarth and bridgman....but the ones so far are from KChens thread which can be found in the tutorials and tips section on CA.
Anyways here are some stuff I did these past couple days.
Some more KChen studies...a study from characterdesigns.com.....some quick bridgman studies....and photoshop/painter sketches. The last two are supposed to be for a ut3 mod paperX and I are trying to get running. The painting ended up looking lik jason chan's stuff which wasn't my intention.
Okay dude, first off, how do you get your blue pencil studies so clean and beautiful? I really, really just love those. They're absolutely gorgeous. All of the Bridgman stuff...really great. The figure is my favorite though...something about using the blue for shading...it really comes off extremely well.
On the painting, the girl in the purple looks really nice, the tones on the face are good, although I think some of the form is confusing based on where you put the highlights. Other than that I think the skin tones are really great, especially in the shadows. So much to learn...we'll have to work all this out in some oc's. :3
I really like what you're doing so far with the pirate, design, colors, everything is really great. The striped pants are the best. It seems like her breasts strongly shaded in comparison to the shirt holding them. Haha...so either flatten them out, or add more form to the shirt. You'd probably want to go with the second option. The shading on the face is really nice, what with the rosy cheeks and everything. It's those little things that bring the piece to life. Awesome.
Those last studies are looking keen, keep them up. The values on the woman with the drapery look especially good. The painting of the Piratey girl is looking good but she seems awful long in the mid-section to crotch area. Her hips also seem dented in. Careful on those feet as well, they might end up looking rubbery and weak if you don't tweak their cruves a bit.
