More stuff with Photoshop.

BETTER QUALITY

Blurry, shading is pretty mediocre, and I learned a lot.

Blah, I have lost my muse, and I can't seem to find it. It is pretty depressing, really. So I have been trying to write more to maybe spark something, but so far, I haven't gotten anything. I have been posting my poetry in profile blog thing, so if you would like, you can read the two I put up there.

Oh, this whole situation reminds me too much of 5th grade and playing Jak & Daxter : The Precursor Legacy. The quest where you talk to the sculptor and he lost his muse and needs you to get it back. First three lines is what I'm referring to.

Anywho, I only have a few sketches to show you guys, I'm sorry :(

these may be reposts, forgive me if they are.

Wow! So, clearly you've grown as an artist since the last time I looked at your stuff. It feels as if you are finally starting to find your own style and I have to say it's pretty unique. I am fairly certain that I would be able to pick a drawing of yours out of a lineup.

You are doing some really cool stuff with color, particularly with your more abstract work. It actually reminds me a bit of Keith Haring actually. And, possibly a little bit of Mike Diana is mixed in there too, although, your stuff is way more polished than a lot of his things are.

Anyway, should be interesting to see what direction you go in as you continue to experiment and figure out what kind of art you want to make. Personally, the only thing I'd like to see you working on right now is adding more detail and backgrounds to your pictures; other than that whatever you're doing seems to be working really well.

Thanks! Really appreciate everything you said. Yeah, my backgrounds really do need work. I am also thinking of switching to Corel Painter from Flash and Photoshop. Photoshop isn't fast enough for my strokes, so they are always not what I want even with the settings set correctly. Flash is vector based so I can't ever get as precise as I want and there is ALWAYS the recognize shapes thing that even when turned off, it seems to mess things up.

I have REALLY been wanting to get into more traditional work, non-digital stuff. But, I don't have any money to buy materials and such, even paper. It is pretty sad. I feel that I learn more from traditional stuff, so that is why, also I don't really feel as good when I do it on the computer.

Here is a bit of WIP.

I was too lazy to make a jpeg, so deal with it :)

Your anatomic structure is fine and the style is working. The subject matter has improved too. I could stand to see some interesting background work from you. Remember that a story is nothing without the setting (people, places, things)

Overall, my 2 cents are that you should redraw each picture a qouple of times before finishing it. Theres a lot of lines and shapes i know you could tighten up just by redoing them, and by that finding out for yourself whats faulty with them.

Also, i know your style isnt turned in that direction, but i think you need to have a better understanding of three dimensions. Your stuff is somehow overall flat, in a way that bothers me.
I know its boring as hell, but take a shoe (or something, not to simple though) and draw it from 3 different angles, then, without looking a the shoe (or whatever object you drew) redraw it from a fourth angle, by just using the three drawings you made as reference.
Or even better, if you have clay, sculpt from reference. Using two mirrors I made a clay self portrait in school once, and that helped me understand how a face s formed better than sketch i've ever made.

You have a great feeling for colors and style though, and i envy you for that.

Oh and another thing, try to avoid having stuff unfinished in the middle of a image. A floating head without a neck and shoulders is worse than one with badly drawn neck and shoulders.

Keep at it.

Wow! Thank you, really. What you said actually clicked with me, I now agree that my overall illustrations are very flat. It is very hard for me to go out of my comfort zone, which is drawing things in a way that they look flat or where I'll try new positions and it will never look right, so I give up or get angry.

I know this isn't an excuse, but I haven't had paper, besides napkins or sticky notes, or pencils for quite some time. Which if I ever get a job, or money, I plan on buying some real materials to actually further my skills and understanding. I don't know why, until now, that I haven't considered drawing something like a shoe, but on my computer. If anything, I would think I would learn more just because I'm not as comfortable with the tablet as I am with the pencil.

So, thank you, I will work on that.

Well, I haven't really taken Karl's advice, and I feel bad. I have mainly been cowering in my comfort zone. Most of my new stuff is in my "blog", and that's where I'll be displaying it from now on. But, just to be an attention whore...

Too lazy to upload it

I'm going to a be necromancer and resurrect this thread.

Currently organizing a miniature "NG Sketchbook Tour" with local artists, myself, and artists from other states. I'll make sure to post updates of the sketchbook as it is returned to me. There are about 8 artists total so far, including myself. and the book has about 60 individual pages, so this should be interesting.

I am also working on my future internet portfolio, as something official and to build off of.

Now, recently I have tried "painting" in Photoshop.

And finally, I surprised myself with this one.

^ don't pay attention to this guy.

You have definitely improved from what I can see - and although sometimes the actual forms in the art might not be perfect, you can actually put a piece together, you know with decent use of colour and such, which means even the less technically good stuff looks great. It's an important skill and you seem to have it.

Keep doing stuff.
