And here is those sketches, put a little dodge and burn on them to make them look better.
And here is those sketches, put a little dodge and burn on them to make them look better.
Something I'm working on right now, got inspired watching some tutorials and other SB's
Here is something I started last night, after i got tired of drawing the horned dude, I decided to do something else, I'm having problems with his feet... can't seem to get them right, any suggestions or critics welcomed of any of my drawings!!!!!
hey man, have you studied perspective much? its a good thing to understand, especially when your drawing alot of stuff from your imagination. since you mentioned that your having trouble placing his feet in the last sketch, you may want to plot out some perspective lines, you have to decide what hes standing on, and where he is in this space, before you can throw feet on him. (its not really necessary with every sketch, only if your placing him in an environment) but these things can help your image maintain order, and can help when it comes to proportions, when you know how far things are spaced apart. it can be overwhelming at first, trying to imagine a realistic environment around your character, so always begin with the basics in any situation. find your horizon line, figure out when your looking up at something, and when your looking down at something. then you can go into 1,2, or 3 point perspective, depending on how you set up your "shot". hope that helps at all, keep it up!
NickyBeats thanks man I will study some perspective.
wadddup Argh, wow you update fast, I'm liking the tenacity!
I definitely dig the ideas and feel like you have these uber crazies in ur head that is bursting to spill out onto the canvas. I think it'll really help for those ideas to flourish if you keep it loose and not overthink things in the sketch. The figure studies look great but one thing to point is that you never see lines in real life just hard edges that are created with value. I'm not sure what the intention was when doing those eye and lip studies but one of the things when I do studies, is 2 different types of sketches. one is to do sketches with lines where i place down lines that don't exist like a plum line (not sure if i spelled that right) or perspective lines to see where the object exists without value but with just lines, and the other type of sketch/practice would be to do tonal studies of the form/surface anatomy. One of the books I found really helpful or like was vanderpoel, might come in use to you to.
Keep up the hardwork definitely see improvements!
Snootchy back at you bro! I try doing something everyday, since school hasn't started yet, have some more anatomy studies, just repetition but too lazy to upload them now, anyway thanks for vanderpoel suggestion, definitely will try to find his book, Thanks, even I think I might have gotten a little better, BTW check this out, just finished it for CHOW, let me know what you think!!
Nice improvement happening here. One thing I'd suggest though is paying more attention to your light source - a good exercise is to use only 2 values initially for the absolute shadow/light blocks (sort of like cel or toon shading). Thinking in terms of your primitives helps a lot with this too, and after doing it a few times you'll start to have a much easier time visualising values.
Veshkau: Your right, though int he last on i wasn't really worried about the light source, I was just doodling, but your right! on the first piece the light source is diffused like being in white room, let me know what you think, the female form is hard for me to draw, especially the bottom half! Thanks for your critique!
Snootchy: found that book, vanderpoel's the human figure and can't wait to read it!!!
and lastly some more studies I'd done about a week ago, didn't want to upload them, but here they are, just some repetition.
Maeshanne: Thanks, it takes me forever to paint, this one took me 4hours,
Monsi: Thanks, they help no doubt!!!
so here is the painting, I was too worried about the lines, thats what took so long, next Im not going to worry about them!!

Some development on the chick with the axe, and some more studies, practices on photoshop!!!
here are a few WIPS, first one is a little out house on a hill on a starry night, I like the mood, the next one is a mountain called 'La Buffa' in Zacatecas, Zacatecas Mexico, and at night you can see this big cross up there, though I'm doing it from memory so it isn't accurate... Let me know what you think!!!
Here is a car sketch, jus playing with the light source to build my car, let me know what you think!!!
Consider drawing this car out first to give your paintwork a solid foundation to sit on. When trying to tackle design, color, and lighting all at the same time things can start to lose their clarity. I find it's best to be methodical and approach one issue at a time. Great studies though, keep it up.
Hey ArghosRo thanks for the kind words you left in my SB. Your SB is great and I love your imagination. I see you've been doing a lot of studies, some of which I recognise and have done myself! One of my favourites is your scene painting on page1 post #9. I love the colours in this one and the mood it creates. I shall enjoy watching you progress.
Haven't posted in a while, soon I'll do something, its just that getting ready for school, and wondering if I was going to be able to go this year kept my attention for the last couple of weeks.
Jhapal: Thank you, however I sometimes find myself spending hours on the lines, too focused on lines and feel I wasted them.
Marian Rowling: Thanks, though I wish I was more imaginative and creative, I seem to be lacking some, but thank you for your feedback!!!
Oh and by the way, the girl in post #9 the guy behind her with the badly drawn knife is supposed to be Jack the Ripper, thats why on the wall it says JTR was here, his favorite killing place.
very cools studies i must say i really like your black and white works in photoshop , specially your car drawing
Thanks everyone for your support
Raminafshari: Thanks for your feedback, and happy someone out there likes my car desings!!!
Haven't posted anything lately, bought a new pen table, so here we go. Some reference photos I got from google. Let me know what you think!!!
Damn bent too busy with school, don't really have much time to do much,
I gotta get back in the game though so let me know what you think,
PS. reminafshari, I'll definitely see your sketchbook soon, thanks for dropping by!
Marian Rowlling, The same to you, thanks for your comments
Jhaptal, And the same, Thanks alot
you have some seriously nice studies and paints going on here. - one crit would be that when you use pencil you should include more contrast between dark and light. In the real world you never find an image where the values are all the same, with only differing colour. The same should really be true for your rendering and linework. Areas of overlap and hard edges often have darker edges, and vica versa. Just something to think about, keep it up!
Haven't had much time to do anything serious so here are some sketches
ThomasM thanks for checking out my SB, appreciated your comments very much. I got to pull my head out of my ass and get some real drawing done.
Great stuff so far, just keep churning out those studies.
And as a small crit, something isn't right about that mermaid's chest. I can't exactly put my finger on it, but I think you might want to redo her torso area.
Anyways, keep up the good work!
One Sketch I'm working on, plus today I took my first figure drawing class,
It was great. Later on I'll post two or 3 sketches from it.
Hey ArghosRo really like the rendering on this last sketch, especially the feather. Hope you enjoyed your first life drawing class. If you're anything like me you will get addicted. I really look forward to seeing what you did.
Marian Rowling: thank you, the class was awesome, plus its free!!!! thanks to Dana. Anyways thanks for the comments, I'll definitely post some sketches later on.
Now today I did a few paintings, took for ever but gotta keep practicing. Let me know what you think.
Looks like your putting some hard work into your skills. Some of the photo studies you should try to redo and make them a little more accurate in proportion. When doing studies, i been told to take your time and not just draw it but learn how it was done or why the human body is the way it is in the picture. Look at its anatomy, perspective, and if it is forshortened. Great work so far! Keep em coming!
Thank you Joe777k7, you are right, i rushed over those plus I was rushing and using a big grunge brush. Next time I'll definitely take my time, thank you for your comments!!!!
Here is another sketch/painting took me some time, still not fast enough, anyways tell me what you think, hard critics welcomed!!!
