lets see if a reupload of the one pic works---
the brushes used here are from so many ppl i can't even remember them all---so credit to them ! : )
yooOOOOO dawg, waddup and welcom back!! Oy that's a real bummer professor but hey it'll only make u stronger and also want to dish out the harsh crits in return to others hehe =P Also sorry to hear about ur bf but hey at least you still got #1 in your life (art)!
Haha I know how you feel about taking a hiatus and then trying to learn to sketch or use photoshop or whatever and getting back into some type of routine. This one in particular is very appealing to me, because of the minimal strokes used to convey the portrait, very nice job!!! I'm intrigued to hear more about the german shepard or animal kick you got going on now?
haha thats what i like to see HALA CRAZY STYLE I REALLY LIKE THE NAKED GIRL SITING DOWN SHE LOOKS SOOO SAD AN THE FACE RIGHT BELOW IT ..LIKE FIRE AN CREDIT TO HALA
I HOPE YER TEACH DUN BOTHER YOU TO MUCH CAUSE YA MIGHT GO ALL UFC ON HIS ARS AN END UP IN JAILZ OO' NOZ MY BOSS AT WERK IS LIKE THAT BUT I NEED MA JOB SO I GRIT MA TEETH AN SAY YES SIR AN I DO MA JOBZ THE BESS I CAN NOT FOR HIM AN NOT FOR COMPANY BUT FOR ME DO THE BEST I CAN AN THEN F#@* EM LET IT GO BETTER THAN GO TO JAILZ I SAY
IT CAME!!! (sounded even dirtier) haha but it's about frikkin time! I just hope you keep it up
As far as animal studies go, I'm not 100 percent positive. There are probably books on drawing animals and whatnot...going to the zoo to do animal sketches like we did on a trip is also a good idea.
updates PLZ!!! hope you had a great xmas! oh also i haven't forgotten about that, just haven't been able to get this old scanner i found to work on win 7 but as soon as i do i'll hit ya up wif that

snootchy; haha thanks!!! and don't worry about the scans, no rush : )
grannyyyyyy: LOLLL hahah yes yes, it is hard not to jump at someone's throat like that. i hope your boss realizes ur awesomeness and stops being a jerk
jack: lmao couldn't help yourself huh? XD yeah i wish i lived closer to the zoo : (
ok ok i'll do a small update. I have paper studies but I don't feel like scanning them. I hope everyone that is celebrating a holiday had a good one!!
here's a wip
any help with the nose and mouth/head structure would be awesome please.
and paint sketch for later piece i hope to do eventually.... but i keep f* up the structure. all i want is a down turned face, at 3/4 angle
not hard right? but i keep mucking that crap up.
and been doing nose mouth and perspective studies on paper but like i said.
im too lazy to scan them. they are practice for myself anyway.
and i know
there is no brush economy.
haha awesome, dig the first portrait, she either trying hard to seduce a man or she stoned off the bomb diggity! I think brush economy just comes instinctly more so than actually trying to do it, i think you'd have a nightmare if you seen how many strokes i lay down before coming to an idea =O, that is a tough profile to capture, i'd say to just throw out what u know or trying to reason things out with forms and just played around with positioning with very rough shapes, no render whatsoever, and if you look at a picture with the angle you're looking for and compare it to what you've drawn you'll see where your conceptions of where anatomy is located on the face and where it actually lies in real life
As for nose, i'm stumped on that one too, it's soooo very subtle and really an art form in itself to master i think, as well as the lips. Let me know if any revelations!
Now moarrr please, hehe! =P
snootchy: yeah..i just dont' understand what those shapes look like though in those positions. guess i need to do some more studies ><
one more for the day
i really wanted to do more but my tablet only works when it feels like it.
YEAH! Hala updated!! Such cool stuff too!
Good to see you back on the studies and such Larissa, the portraits look mean, love the ones in post#301!! so pretty
looking forward to fighting along sind you in the T-chow III
very nice improvement hala since i last visited. For learning skin tones i suggest you try doing studies from other artists even people on CA. I personally find it allot more helpful then working from photos since not only can you figure out what colors work but you can also find out how to effectively apply them. Anyway, glad too see your still at it and im looking forward to seeing your progress
i agree with kato, but i think it's good approach you're taking right now even in that last post, where it's monochromatic; nothing is easier on the eye than to work monochromatically and even though it's a bit stylized i think it reads well and as they say if it works in greyscale or mono then it reads! keep at it, you're eye is definitely coming into it's own!!
Hala Hala !! i really love the last pink woman ^^ nice values ! i also like some of your sketches, like the sketch of the face at the top right corner post #301 ! For animal anatomy, there is a thread about that in the mentoring section, created by moai, check it out, really useful ! keep up the good work honey !!
twan: thanks twan : )
matt: thanks mate! happy holidays ^^ yes TCIII is gonna kick ass!!!
krato: thanks and thank you for the tip, i will definitely start doing that : )
snootch: thanks haha i gotta keep working it
jack: thanks man
walid: oh thanks man i'll look there
some ref studies from this morning
finally made some connections in my head. so i'm pretty happy. i just wanted to understand shapes better and the way that I want to draw them.
i also went back to some of my first influences for inspiration and technique.
felt natural, felt good. and i didn't get frustrated.
new years is coming everyone!!!!
very nice update, really good to see you loosen up some of them strokes, these latest sketches have a very nice painterly feel to them!
dan: thanks! yea, progression feels so good
snootchy: haha i'm glad then, it's good to hear that
phil: hey man!! ya, i need to stop disappearing and finally get back into CA. hahaha
PLEASE GO CHECK OUT MY FRIEND'S SB. He's amazing, watch him, cuz he does amazing things. He just got around to joining here, give him a nice welcome please : )
sorry for my absence. I fell really underweight. Had to get my health back in order. still underweight but eating normally again. I just hope school doesn't fuck me up again. :/
been working on my own stuff for a couple days.
trying to reach deeper into what i want to convey and the stories i want to tell.
rather than trying to create 100% convincing images.
so, here's a personal piece WIP.
Jack: yeah ur totally right--i had this idea for the tree branches to wind into the ground but i don't really know how to draw them in. but thanks for pointing it out i will work on it : )
Granyyy: hahah thanks bro!!!
and revisiting an old piece---and painting over and improving on it. still in progress!
and sketch gone bad hah
woh that revisited portrait i rememba those days, haha! glad to hear ur alive and kicking and digging the latest sketches!! I really like what you did in terms of the old portrait u revisited by simplifying some of the planes and the personal wip, hubba hubba =O
Hala really loving your digis! friggen awesome!
IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG SINCE I'VE UPDATED HERE.
Sorry. Graphic design ate me up, spat me out, but kept my soul D:
I was also couch surfing for quite some time and was without most of my stuff.
I feel like I lost all I learned nearly a year ago.
Some shitteh still lifes to get this SB back up and running.
gonna hit the studies again soon : D

another still life--
got lazy though. Can't seem to stay focused for some reason lately. I will try this object again later because metallics are fun : D (and hard ^^
the steps portion got messed up so some of the steps look exactly the same :< sorry
Ehi! I've seen previous pages and your improvement are really good!
HALA'S BACK!! Cool to see some work Halalala. You say you feel you forgot lots but those still lifes are clean and well done.
Definitely improved skills.
