Sketchbook of the Virid Rain
#1
Hi there !

I'm a comic book colorist and an aspiring illustrator. In the long run, I'd like to work full time as a "fantastic" illustrator.
So let's make some progress 215ad82f
(ohh cool, onion head is in the place, haha i love these smileys :D)


Here are my latest sketches and studies.
I'm curently studying drawing, cause have still trouble with it :/
I won a class at TAD thanks to deviantart, so i picked the Sketchbook I. A great great class with Ron Lemen and Sterling Hundley ! I've already learned many interesting things !
Besides, i'm studying with Mathews Archambault's Drawing Tutorial Online, it's a really awesome website, i love this tutorials.

Really like the way you've done the self portrait and I like the the figure studies. What book are you doing your studies from?

My favourite books and tutorials are :
http://www.drawing-tutorials-online.com/
• Anatomy issues of ImagineFX's Anatomy issues i own the old Vol 1&2, but i think this one is a compilation of both. http://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/an...ssentials/
• Any Kevin Chen demos like http://www.angelfire.com/art3/kchendemos/ or an other blog i cannot find anymore, buried in my favourite list i think ! :3
• Conté Animated by Ryan Woodward http://conteanimated.com/the-book/
• The classic and great Mike Mattesi's Force http://www.amazon.com/Force-Dynamic-Life...314&sr=8-3
• Anatomy for the artist http://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Artist-Sar...117&sr=8-1

but when i draw from photos, it's from photos picked on the web, if that was the true question .. Stupid
Mainly it's from http://artists.pixelovely.com/practice-t...e-drawing/ and http://lovecastle.org/draw/ (damned it seems to be temporally broken :/ i hope..)

Pardon my english.

oh my GOD! you are sick! So much awesomeness in your sketchbook..my mind...blown to pieces. You are a machine! Seriously though. I love those environment studies! Must do more of them myself *writes in notebook* And man, the self portrait is gorgeous! I think for that kind of drawing, you have to use minimal white, good job (again). As for values. Try to paint a new self portrait and just block in with big brush in grayscale (think like a sculptor!). Don't want to seem too smart cos I'm not (laughs) just trying give you some ideas. Last but not least the bloodsports 13 one...Fantastic! The designs, the exploration with colors, composition. Everything is just great. I'd love to be able to make something like that. I'd suggest you do more anatomy studies though, for I think that's your weakest point. But! You're just so much more skilled then myself. I'll just simply stop being a smart ass and go drool over your work every time I stop by. And I will stop by again! Amazing!

Thank you for these advices Sun! Yeah anatomy is such a huuge subject, sometimes i feel overwhelmed, but if i work in steps, I should progress and expect some improvement ^^ DTO is a good ressource for that, coupled with all the other content i own, it should be fine.
Finally, i should work on my patience too ! Bomb
