Hey Guys. I am new here, and I have been doing art for a long time, but I am pretty new to digital art. These are some sketchs/concepts I have done in the past month or so. Please critique all you want. Advice is encouraged, and please do not sugar coat anything.
I could suggest a lot of things for you to do..But what generally comes
to mind when i see those is to forget the tablet for a while and grab a pencil!
And if you think i'm wrong, or if you just disagree slightly, the i suggest
starting to paint, and not only lay out a lot of textures.
The only thing i really liked was the skeleton, I assume its a study ?
Nice work however . The rose look like something you did with plastic wrap in photoshop....
Most of your stuff is very flat... and thats one of the reasons i suggest skiping the tablet for a while! Pencil&Sketchbook and start studying!
I just realized i'm the first post, hehe, Welcome to CA and don't let me scare you away
The skull looks really nice. Pay attention to your edges, the skull looks nice, but the edges are a little fuzzy, using the lasso tool can help clean up those fuzzy edges. You lasso it, hold shift to add anything else to your selection, then just delete out the fuzziness.
Also, doing what dile said will help too. Using a pencil makes you more aware of lines, and really can help a painter/digital artist. It helps a painter because when you are painting, you're blocking out shapes of color, and lines sometimes get overlooked. But the same as dile said, don't let my advice scare ya off. welcome to the boards.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
--- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

thanks a lot guys. i have been drawing for a while, and my drawings all have a much greater sense of depth, but for some reason i cannot accomplish this with a tablet... but obviously my drawing skills are no where near perfect, so i deff. will keep drawing!
i reworked the skull like you guys suggested. i tried to add more depth and tried to make the edges sharper....
here is some more stuff. i will post more drawing when i get a chance to take some pics of them (no scanner)
the first one is a painting i did for a school project. obviously politicaly charged. its supposed to me the flag dripping oil on a pile of skulls, that are crying blood.
the next few are just quick gestures from imagination. i know they arent proportional....
last one was quick drawing of my friend playing guitar.
agian, criticism welcome!
thanks alot, i plan to get pencil stuff up by the end of the weekend! woohoo lol
i added somemore detail to the skull and frame it cause i was bored...
here are some sketches
the human figure ones are like 15-min gesture sketches from a live model (the really simple one is a 1 minute gesture)
all skulls, arms, eyes are done from head
soldier is done from a reference
300 character is done from head
comments/critiques encouraged! thanks for viewing
