You're flying dude! That last one looks like something straight outta a Loomis book!

Has the Watts course benefited you a lot or is this more the result of all your recent studying?


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 10-18-2014

I think Watts is helping a lot so far. His videos are pretty inspiring and the pdfs are very informative. Although I wouldnt have been able to use his methods as effectively without studying anatomy as thoroughly as I have recently. Being familiar with muscles and bones are instead of just drawing bumps without knowing what they are is a huge difference. Supposedly hes adding an anatomy course soon which is a pretty big piece to the puzzle of learning his more advanced abstractions. I might of been able to do all this on my own but it would have taken much longer.

this is great sketchbook! It's really refreshing to see someone stick to pencils and paper these days. What anatomy book are you looking at for the skeletal structure? Keep at it. Sean.

This is great stuff. That armor on the previous page looks sexy :D And I love those more refined life drawings. Great light and shadow work there :)

Nice anatomy studies you have there, can't wait to see new progress. Good job!


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Spolyk - 10-30-2014

Nothing to say more, but the last one is awesome :)


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 11-11-2014

Angeliq and Spolyk thanks for stopping by! You both do great work by the way :)



Not much to show. Just trying to absorb Frazetta's figure design sense. Im done with the month of Watts drawing courses. I plan to sign up for the painting courses in a few months. Im just working on getting more supplies and getting a handle on how to use them first. I want to start doing black and white gouache studies soon. In the mean time i'll keep reviewing the pdfs I got from Watts and doing these little drawing from memory/ imagination sketches.

damn man! you are like a steam train!! keep it up :D


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - JyonnyNovice - 11-11-2014

That Frazetta style is really working out! Keep going in that direction man!

Did you manage to go through all the material from Watts in a month? With enough time to absorb and practice it? I'm thinking to give it a go in a few months when I've finished Hampton.

Those Frazetta style drawings are awesome! Keep up the great work.

Hey Hypmagogic! nice studies of anatomy buddy! You are doing great! About the info for gouache that you asked in my sketchbookpage, the tips that i give to you is the same that i told there:
( sorry for copy and paste hehe) > " I loved work with gouache! Gave me a lot of trouble to understand that we need to think before we paint!! Like you all know, we are all used to go and paint really quickly, and make mistakes, and use alot of Ctrl+z, but with traditional midia, you realize that you can't make mistakes every time, you dont have time to correct every single of them, it sucks! hahaha
So... i learned more about thinking than painting! The process is equal in the computer, make a great line art, do some basic colors, add some shadows and after that put some lights and boom! Also pure black and pure white has a great power to pop out some areas! At least for me, this is what I have to say about my experience guys :) I super recommend! " And the Winston and Newton is the best paper! ( that is what my teacher said haha) and I agree ^^
I look forward to see your experiments with gouache!

Thanks, JyonnyNovice & maggie!

Rosolino thanks for the advice! Im gonna start with some simple value scales this weekend and see how it goes. I've heard gouache can take some getting use to.

More head studies, life drawing and Frazetta's.
