Joseph's shiny new sketchbook
#21
Have not posted in a super long time. I did take advice to heart and tried some of my own digital illustrations. The results were not really very good. One thing I sketched out is this scene, the idea being in a middle ages setting, political situations leave a selfish young ruler on the throne in place of a king. Pretty simple concept. I probably wont finish this as I don't think the execution is great, and the ideas aren't there (that dog is not well drawn, haha). But I'm going to keep working on painting compositions of my invention. 

I've been also working much more on my traditional paintings which I will post later.

well you see, the point of doing your own picture, is hitting roadblocks, and you can post here or the critter cave and get people to point out issues so you can fix them in real time and learn from it, instead of making a mistake, rendering the mistake, and never becoming aware of it. I believe that improvement in art is 99% knowing what not to do, because the scope of what we are doing is so limited in the sense of realism. theres only a few things that will work, but an unimaginable things that wont ;)

But for your piece, the colors are interesting, but the pose is really stiff, the leg coming out is weirdly long, and the shoe is enormous. And overall it feels like a study of someone in a costume in a chair. But yea, if you have digital, work with that for this kinda stuff because its flexible. But id reccomend just drawing freehand more with pencil or pen and learning what your style is before doing a full imaginative illustration, oh and getting lots of critiques in your process so you can learn that stuff quicker ;0

I don't really post here too often, but maybe I should. I did a little sketch from life today of a cat I sculpted (I know, I should probably stick to painting  Tongue ). I'm trying to work on my solid modeling. I think it looks pretty good, but the form doesn't look as solid and smooth as I was wanting.

Nothing wrong with sculpting or trying other creative stuff! It all comes together in making us better draftsmen in the end! :)

The last study looks quite good! I would suggest that you actually do life studies daily for a while. It doesnt have to be complex subjects either. A fruit on a piece of fabric or similar is plenty enough when it comes to doing them daily. Also make sure that you really analyze how the materials react, and set up diffirent kinds of lighting schemes if you can (Main Lights, Fill lights, diffirent kinds of colored lights etc).
