Darktiste Sketchbook
This time i got my eye on leather.Still working on this CG cookie exercise but this time i limited myself to two object since right now it seem like gain enough confidence to over render which is in itself a problem.

You can find the exercise here if you want to try doing the same.

Great material studies , I love the bottom middle of the gold one. The leather book is great too. The ball reads a little more off to me although I'm not sure why. Perhaps because the background suggests light behind it which should cause a back rim light, however instead there are sharp dark edges ? Also I might steal these worksheets off you , they seem useful

Feel free i am providing them exactly for this purpose it can be hard to find exercise or what to study sometime so it good that those exist.

Yea i might have to stop using this light background against dark object as you say it confusing to the viewer.Thank for the word of encouragement and the crit.

Yes i felt that to.But i want to get back to design and expand my ability to generate more visual solution for each given visual problem i want to think more outside the box and stop putting the break on just pumping a really generic design solution.But at the same time making it familar enough to appeal to the viewer.

Wow. This sketchbook has a long history. 8 years is a lot of work for a single thread. I like your animal studies with focus on structure. It's something I haven't done much myself. Material studies are great too.

For linework I would try to vary the thickness within strokes more. For example you could make lines thinner on the light side and thicker on the shadow side. This way you can get more impression of form without really showing any shading and at the same time there is more variety in the work which makes it more interesting. You can see it in the example below.

Heyy! Don't give up so easily :) If you need any help with zbrush or any questions let me know. 3d can feel so intimidating at the beginning- specially zbrush because of so many options and buttons and strange interface. Trust me- I turned it on, played with sphere a bit dragging it around and stretching, and I turned off that software for months. The mere thought of learning it was making me sick. But there are three functions that you should learn in the beginning and everything else will start having more sense after some time- Zremesh, Dynamesh and Project. You don't have to know everything right away, slowly building up functions as you need them.
