welcome friend! have a beer! :chug:
Nothing to crit here. Good start.
I would HATE to be that poor f*cker with the eyes if he needs to wear contact lenses! I have only two eyes, and its still a bitch!
got a new smaller sketch book, also got 6b lead for my lead holder...tried for the softest lead.. i think its too soft doesn't stay sharp for very long hehe..o so here some pencil/pen doodles.
...start rippin it apart now
got bored at school, i created a document in ps and filled it with a grey, printed it out and used prisma markers and a white pencil..and doodled..?
- for this first one, i was just messin with filters...
-painter 8 sketching
Your stuff has strong rhythmic relationships. No crit for now--question??? Is it hard to start sketching stuff in painter???
Can I practice the same kind of thing in photoshop???
Thinking about getting digital!!!!
mentler - if you have a tablet and you've drawn with it before it shouldnt be hard to sketch in painter. its actually a bit easier to draw in painter only cuz you can rotate the canvas around so you can make nice strokes without stressing out your hand. i sometimes sketch in photoshop too which is also easy...
don, this is a sweet thread you've got going. i always enjoy your posts. as far as crits go, the only thing that strikes me is when you draw faces in perspective, you really don't show the nose. you've got the bottom section in shadow, but in perspective you really see the line of the nose....an example is on this one
the girl's head on the bottom, second from the left. I feel like i should be seeing her nose coming up to her forehead, or at the very least, some of it. (i see the sketchy lines, but i think it should be hit with a dark one).
Of course, this is subjective, and maybe just a stylistic choice. So feel free to completely disregard.
again, great work, i loves yer art.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
jetpack42 - ya i can see what your talkin about, but your right when you mentioned its more subjective and just a stylistic choice. im just trying to figure out different ways to draw certain feature on the face without puttin to much in... simple experimenting! thankyou for the crits!!!
more crits..makes me better!!! ..rip my stuff apart!!! :machinegu
!update! both of these were done in opencanvas, was drawing with davi,calle,lynchpin
this first one i liked how it turned out..
this piece of poop was done really quick and really sloppy, why am i posting it, i dont know!
Had to take a look---something I always look for---missed it when I look at your stuff before---he is right very minor though---remember elbow is end of bone (ulna) that attaches to humerus that runs thru center of upper arm---need to try it under a little to show the bottom of triceps that attach
to it!!! Oh well thought I would join in!
liam.c - im trying!
buzzz3d - hey you! thanks for checking my sketches out and giving crits too! you da man! thanks o and ya it is pretty minor, that little guy was extremely stylized...
mentler - thanks for checking out my stuff! and the crit as well!
heres a oc sketch i did with mike, and jon.
heres is a project for class about what patriotism means to me...im not sure if i should put it in my sketches...so ill just leave a link to it and you can crit it if you want to check it out. (i think its got too much going on..but im pressed for time and this is all i can do for now...)
interesting patriotism project...i think i get the gist, want to give me some sort of artists statement??
you do a nice job with the values on the OC sessions. when i blur my eyes the images hold up pretty well...
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
jetpack42 - thanks, ya for the patriotism project..the students had to write a paragraph about what patriotism means to them, then incorporate that text into the image. it doesn't really have to be read as it should be more mixed in with the design of the piece. but anyways my overall statement here was that being patriotic means a love and loyalty for your country..blah blah blah..so i have this little girl (seeing as little girls tend to be more loyal and compassionate) is raising her hand (the hand raised could mean that shes raising her hand for america, she wants to be seen, shes here for her country..etc) then i have her blind folded just to represent a trust or blind trust and what i mean by blind is we only know so much of the truth thats happening in america even though we stand behind it 110%!!! ...something along those lines...
thanks for being interested in it jet!...man i gotta draw
Action sketch is strong-particularly if done without ref.
Tell be about OC
hey you got some nice stuff going on in here man. nice character work. youve definetely got potential and seem to be going in the right direction. Id love to see some enviroment work. Its easy to get stuck doing characters and just forget about the whole enviroment thing but its incredibly hard to get a job as just a character concept guy. That is if your looking for a job in the future...
mentler - ya action sketch was done without ref. oh and oc is opencanvas, another painting program thats real small and works pretty well. go check out the opencanvas thread for more info.
stewart one - id love to see some environments too! i too slip into the character mode. ive actually been gettin more refs for environments especially buildings so maybe within the next weeks or so there will be some environments posted up!
thanks guys!!!!! :chicken:
Sadly I am Mac mutt!!!
