kevin_ - thanks man! im just having fun haha
palladium - yes! dammnit yes! haha i must work on my enviros!!!
sketch from a loooong class lecture tonight...
You are getting better for sure. That last head is especially good, I just dont like the brush texture you got there. Something cleaner will look better in my opinion Anyway GJ and keep it up!
My sketchbook - Please, help me grow Critique very appreciated
Hey Nicky, great to see how much effort you are putting in and the steady progression. I noticed in a lot of your heads and characters drawings you place them standing straight on to the viewer, which is always going to make them look flat and stiff. Try some other angles to get more volume in there. With the enviros remember think 'foreground, midground, background' - that last one has lots of mid, but nothing in the foreground for example.
I haven't been on CA for a while and its great to come back and see you are still here and working hard away. Keep it up dude!
i am very new to this website, actually i just made a account. But i have a youtube clip on my latest drawing of leonardo dicaprio and i would really appreciate if you'll could take a look and maybe give me some feedback so i can develop my art and skills
here is a link to the clip
woah. nice sketchbook man. you really got a variety of styles going on, thats very inspiring.
Your paintings are a bit distorted in there perspective, i use to have that problem. You should flip your canvas horizontally about once every 20 mins on your digital drawings it will help give you a fresh perspective and help bucket loads. some really trippy stuff in here too.
jakubvavrik - thanks dude! yea i am still experimenting a lot with texture brushes, trying to find a good fit for certain scenarios.
palladium - haha thanks man, i appreciate the visit again!!
pgf95 - ha thanks, im a big fan haha.
SpaceJelly - damn thanks dude i really appreciate it! i dont really see myself moving forward as much as i want to, but its nice to hear you think so!
Lightpunk - yea i hear you on the perspective thing. i do get into old habits very quickly while im sketching. bad force of habit. i have been trying a lot more to make my heads (at least in my sketchbook) from different angles. the enviros. . . i am in dire need to attention. i get veeeery lazy if im not painting something in action or something cool. i need to just motivate myself more to put in the extra effort. but big thanks for stopping by man, i very much appreciate it!!
whavner - uhhhh that seems very robot ish of you... im not clicking that link...
lupre - thanks a ton man!
tinnato - thanks dude! and yea my perspective needs a major overhaul. i tend to keep falling into the same mistakes, even though i have the knowledge to fix them, and should have the foresight to see them ahead of time. i think its mainly a motivational thing, but im working at it.
just some sketches of the Kappa i did in my grey toned sketchbook... used pen and prismacolor markers.
Sick stuff man, i havent been drawing much since last month or 2 and now you gave me the motivation to buckle up my ass and get back to my daily routine, keep going man.
SketchBook <--[HELP THIS LAD IMPROVE, GO C&C]
Artful_Stool - thanks man! thats great to hear! you just gave that motivation back to me!
i thought the head was way too big in the first sketch, so i changed it a bit...
palladium - haha yea dude! DBZ got me into art, started out drawing fan art of like super saijin 12 goku haha then just took off from there! still have a soft spot for DBZ fan art in my heart. i would actually love to do a dave rapoza type redesign series with the cast of DBZ... hmmm.... maybe someday...
dont know why some of my images still arent showing up, oh well... anyways, here is some line work doodles and what not...
Keep up the great work mate!!! Becareful of this similar noise pattern. Read this article http://www.neilblevins.com/cg_educat...ary_shapes.htm mostly on the parts where he shows the noise stuff about areas of detail and areas of no detail.
Limit the highlights [the values closer to white in overall] or if you add so much highlights you need to introduce more blacks. Also smooth out things in the back to enhance depth
kingkostas - thank you so much for posting that! and of course thanks for stopping by and helping me out man! i appreciate it a ton!
some dev sketches for the current chow (pack leader) . im going baboon on this biatch.
He was a baboon as a child, but he turned to a big mad ape as he matured and began to glide.
As he started to turn more bolder, he was caring only about his daughter.
The maniacal disease didn’t left his brain healthy either,
he’s buffer has been cleared, like a cow after she's been milked.
Suffering and joy in his eye at the same time, like a sun shifting to a star, nothing can became
more colorful than a midnight striptease bar. Overall the pack of baboon will follow him,
but neither of them will respect him as his mother did. Clenched teeth, curvy hair, greased
up underwear. I can feel the individual confusion and strict character related conflict within
his face and mind. You have delivered him hard and realistic in a backpedaling fashion,
both ways, side and up the same time. Very good job, keep up cleansing the mossy rain free humid alleys.
LtPlissken - haha damn dude i really love your comments you leave in here! really, such a great backstory too! im definately gonna use this, even if i dont finish the chow in time i still want to push this one to a finish. im super busy right now, but when i get a free second im definately gonna stop by your sketchbook and return the love! thanks man!
random sketch, started with a photo, but i only took the color palette from it, because i loved the color combo. the rest i just made up. random stuff, but fun as hell!
He turned his back toward our presence, which is a good step, cause you are leaving the audience
in deep silence and coincidence. They are wondering hard, what will his face look like when
he suddenly turns around. The audience is sitting and sweating at the same time. Sweating even
without their Christmas sweaters. I can insure you all, that he will not be pretty, I can see the back
of his neck being nasty and the top of his head busty. He will not be pretty like Beyonce, he will
be scary as Nick Nolte, or even worse. His strong body posture and thick legs show believable
signs of brute force. This painting captures the moments before the storm. In one word, when
he’ll turn around, hell will come to town. I like the way you handle different situation and
how you keep the positive spirit and attitude on a high level all the time.
i'm in love with your style haha, Some really cool stuff here, INSPIRING!
LtPlissken - hey man! thank you a ton for stopping by again! ill come back to see what your working on soon! haha love your comments!
