a few side questions...
whats the best photoshop? CS3? or is it opinion... which one uses the least RAM? or runs as smoothly as possible... i have CS5 and the preformance preference function seems to do a little... running on windows7...
if you have any suggestions or tweaks i could make to get things to optimal settings it'd be so much appreciated.
and im craving critique and pointers and advice!!!
i'll draw anything anyone asks
well your on the right track with the gesture drawings, it looks like your just
wanting to get on the right track and to that extent I would suggest just keeping
your work to just value and line work, learn lighting, tonal layout and composition,
and just get good at drawing in general, ateliers will make you just draw in value for the first two years....then comes color. as for the cintiq I hear it is great, however I hear some people have an easier time with the intuos, honestly
I like the bamboo it is "light" I prop it on my knee. doesn't handle much different
than and intuos either, in fact if you look at the first sketch in my sketch book of batman that was done with a "mouse," sooo...really it comes down to skill. that you can't buy.
Cheers and keep it up!
@eeedward - :3333 thank you thank you thank you!!!! lol not a lot of people said happy birthday to me >.< got a intuos4 though!
@Sean McClain - Yesss finally some advice!!! thank you so much man!
i bought the Jason Chan quick sketch thing for 9.99 it is... AMAZING!! haha
learning so much... :3 thanks again man!
@ladyknowles - yos! CS5 is the shizzle! and thank you!
Heres some more concentrated drawing.. and an "attempt" at lighting...... -.-
Looking good, There is some pretty interesting stuff here. Keep up the good work.
Lol, you have a hell of an imagination. Keep up the drawing and everything will fall into place. Draw from life, man, that really helps with your imaginational pieces. Keep going.
awesome imagination!! solid work dude, i would highly suggest working on some anatomy work, and proportions too! your imagination is too awesome to waste, so make sure your able to depict it as accurately as you can! this means doing lots of studies...even though there boring, its the only way to be able to paint like a master! you have it in you, now GO FORTH and paint me something to look at!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!
btw... that titty twister door lock is gold. haha!
hmmm i need to figure out whatever the fuck a "Loomis study" is... i think im gonna go by barnes and noble and get a book by andrew loomis depending on the price lol...
this is just some experimenting with overlay and sketching.
thanks for dropping by man! i really appreciate it!
I can see improvement already in your imagination drawing. Your doing great man, keep up the momentum.
That first creature sketch has great originality and creativity. The second sketch has awesome shading, man. The third has good gesture and movement. All in all, good stuff.
Good sketchbook you have going here.
I'd suggest studying some Loomis and Bridgeman there are some free PDF book you can find on the net. Try and just think of everything as simple shapes. Hope that helps
keep it up
sketchbook updated October 6th
The alien looking creature is awesome, man. The colors are great! Also, i really like the mannequin sketches. It looks like you're really capturing the form. I suggest some shading for you can really give yourself a lesson in capturing the form. Keep it up.
keep those studies comin, you are going in right direction. get Bridgman's too, he has some nifty tricks for drawing poses and anatomy too
