Hi there, I browsed through all your 9 pages and here's my thoughts:
- Your works seem to look best when they're involved in environmental drawings... although from what I see your main interest seems to be character and monsters. I think your art can make a great boost if you manage to put your characters fit into your environment.
- The best character/monster I see in here is that fish monster in page 5. Personally I think your char/mon looks overall rough and sketchy and can use some detail or texture in some part so the whole thing looks more...full and interesting. Your environment actually has much deeper detail and better texture, why not apply the same quality to here too?
- I can see your development and improvment on both quality and design of our char/mon throughout time, and the rock is beginning to show some of its diamond edges. My thought is that you can just try "let it go and be completely crazy" when you design - see what interesting stuff you can come up with that.
Anyhow, environment is my major weakness, I wish I can learn how to do better from looking at your work. [I need more practice.]
Some really nice color work going on here. You environments are lovely, and I see you're fond of robots because every time you paint one it comes out awesome. It also seems you've improved a lot on linework, especially in #221 with the sharpie. Really nice look.
Wow, man I'm glad you commented on my journal because you have some amazing works.... most def a watch man, I know there's a lot I can observe here and learn.
hey guys, thanks for the commebnts.. i will probably start reposting soon.. i needed to take my distance from some stuff for while , i was getting to stressed with drawing and i wanted to get the passion back by getting my head out of my butt for a while lol... anyway hope you will still come visit my dusty SB.
Been doing al ot of pencil lately, still not worth showing so until im done with my moleskin and suck less.. here is a color doodle i did this afternoon, been a while since i painted in PS but i feel that the pencil are helping with the structure a lot... Still the same freaking pose for that robot lol.
Ill try to keep this place updated again
Callops: Sup mate !!!! Yes i was away in the moutain doing meditation... your sb has greatly been uipdated, i must catch up with you damnit , your lines are so sex
Zweidee: ty , fan of your work !
DAILY DOODLES, sketching digitally is so hard. Was playing with silhouette
geez the mecha pure pornography!! so are the enviros! and the little flying redeyed robot in your last post looks like he's constructed to deliver bad news... like: "Bzzz bzzz you just got robbed bzz bzz.."
Noo but srsly awesome thread, man!!
oh those sketches and doodles are looking good!
I really like your mecha in post 247
Really Amazing stuff mate, why you only have 4 star?
We need to get you up to 5!
lol not that the stars really mater, love the characters and creators.
keep on posting.
yeah! 5! 5! 5!
non really like pencils..you should more work with it...but digitals are great!!
Awesome progress, I'm positive those value studies are doing wonders for your skills to show an understanding of form. You were pretty sucessful at the black and white character design (with the spiked hair) doing more like that as well wouldn't be a bad thing
A good thing while doing these is to change the light direction often and force yourself to discover lighting posibilities at the same time - most of the digital studies in the last update have light coming from the left...try more even diffuse lighting, intense top down lighting, or the right side with a strong left rim light etc. 2 birds in one stone!
Thanks everyone for the nice feedback !!
Callops: dunno , i think your hallucinating a bit !!! but i eat a lot of fast food
Verehin: I know, i do a lot of pencil lately but i dont post a lot of them, i still need to improve a lot, ill get there i swear, or die
Jakers: thanks man, yeah.. same angle of light, same angle of head, same expression... i need to change my subject and context, need to get a clearer idea of what im drawing, and no just doodle the same old head brainlessly...
I dont have much to show , some enviros i did at work when i had some free time, messing with color and trying new stuff, i cant call these finished but i spent like 2 hours on each. I do a lot of pencil at home but i wont show them yet, im still figuring things out and experimenting with life drawing / blind contour stuff like that...
Hope you like it !
very creative, keep posting. love to see more.
the most recent b&w digi sketches are awesome! very lively
the only crit i can offer on your latest color sketches is this - the blue line going through the ship is rather confusing, and i think it breaks the perspective and makes the whole ship seem one dimensional
hmm, in my mind that area would be darker seeing as its in the shadowed area, but its not, so i read it as flat
but the cave is great, and thanks for the comment in my SB
some update before bed, a few suky studies.
If anyone could give me advice on drawing from life i would be happy... it feels a lot easier to draw from life while not really looking at the paper, but im affrais im not focusing on the form enough when doing this but just copying ''2d'' contours and not feeling the 3d enough, althourgh it seems that i get a lot more accurate while drawing more this way.
Hey thanks everyone for taking time to comment, its really motivting !!! plus i got an extra, wtf ?! no more sucky post from now on, thanks for the pressure -_- .
BlackGuy: Yeah pencil is so important, the foundation of everything, doing more pencil really helps with the painting i think. Thanks !
Call0ps: Thanks dude for your support , hehe its a bottle of beer , drawing+alcool = yayyy
lilnebo: haha whats a bruva ?! Dont get too dizzy, my lines are still really newbish, thanks for coming here and for your great contribution on this forum, i enjoyed your compilation of motivation threads... never give up your dreams and you will get there !
Decided to try out that alchemy thing, this thing is crazyyy especialy for mechas, hope you guys like it because you can except more of these doodle in days to come. Now, time to cook some tofu~.~ see ya
Your use of color in the digital paintings is really good, I'm especially diggin that enviro with the big spaceship hanging in the sky. What is this alchemy thing you speak of? Its not the first time I've heard the term.
