Hello, I'm new here, hoping to regularly show you my work, and maybe get some criticism and improve :)

Today I've done 5 hours and 20 mins most of that went toward the still life WIP.

7 hours and 30 minutes , again spending most of it on client work which I hope I could soon show you :)

And I really need to get back to updating much more than this... This last week something kept coming up every single day, I guess I'll have to start to adapt to these things, because things will keep coming up. I have to keep my composure, and study harder.

Also I'll be switching from working with HSB sliders to RGB sliders D:

Happy New Year!







I'm exhausted from tonight (was lots of fun! :D ), but I've told myself that I'll update daily, and since 2009 just ended, I'll add a few words:

A big thanks goes out to all the people that made this year so great: All the new people I've met, those who took the time to crit or give a tip, all those who made good music for us to enjoy. And all the people that give me support online and irl - YOU'RE ALL AWESOME, each and every one of you, THANK YOU. I can't wait for us to plunge into 2010 and make it even better.

We've been doing regular thunderdomes on IRC and you're all welcome to join us.

A thunderdome is When we get a set time (60 minutes for example) to do a set topic, and produce the best image possible. It's not competitive though - it's more about pushing your limits, getting better at speedpainting and having fun!

Check it out

Great sketchbook dude! I can't believe nobody's posting here. Your sense of color is wonderful, so I would concentrate more on structure if you asked me. But you are doing right things : Loomis, thunderdome, posemaniacs, still lives, portraits. Just keep doing this great job and I am sure more people with react. CU!

I was thinking the exact same thing as siiilon "no comments, wtf???"... then I saw his post :D


It's great to see you're starting to study anatomy more intensely. Check out the anatomy forum if you have time, there's loads of goodies there.

your princess piece came out really nice, just wish you'd have positioned her a bit more off centre ;)

Keep going, you're doing great!
The progress visible from the start of this sb is amazing already.

Great to see all the hard work here :)

Think about lineweight and how you can use it to create a path for the eye of the viewer.
EG in the last robot sketches, the lines at the legs are heavier than those at the head.
This pulls the eyes of the viewer towards the legs and they become the main focal point.
With lineweight you can also imply the direction of the light source.

Some minimal background here and there will give your linedrawings a lot more punch.

Vatsel
02-19-2010, 09:48 PM
NR43 lots of great tips there, will think these through - many thanks.

Love that bot. Just a minor crit, I think the shoulder part is too ...euhm... immobile. It runs from the chest all over the shoulder until it meets the bicep area. So it's too fixed to the chest imo. If you detach that part on the chest it will look a lot better I think. What do you think?

Try to add a bit more contrast in your drawings. If they are just line drawings, use lineweight to hint the viewer on the direction of the light.

I really like your still life paintings Vastel, I'm trying some out, any advice on what to be concentrating on? I feel like I am relaxingly 'painting by numbers' when I make a still life...
I observe, light, texture, but I'm colour picking a lot :(
thanks

Vatsel
03-28-2010, 06:34 PM
embryotic thanks, for the still lifes the best thing to focus on would be showing different materials, and focusing on reflected light and saturation.
Also color picking is a bad idea when used too much. try to use the color sliders in PS for most of your colors.
Hope I helped, thanks for stopping by!

Great to see all the efforts you are making to become better. And you know what, it is working too :D


About the nude model back view study:
Make sure you squint your eyes when determining the values. You can go even darker in the arms, buttox and some areas on the back.
The reds seem just a little oversaturated.
Anyway, that is how I see it. Maybe - and there's a good chance to it since you and I are not the same person- we just see things slightly differently.
It's really a great study!

Vatsel

NR43 right on about the study, I was gonna refine it more anyways though. thanks for looking out! :)

I think you have an awesome technique in using of light and shadow. really makes your images vivid and alive. but maybe proportions could use a little more work in your human drawings. Really great images though!

Great stuff!

When painting, squint your eyes when looking at your reference.
Your hues are pretty close, but your values and edges are off.
Squinting simplifies your value and edge problems. (Don't squint to see color, we need our eyes wide open to see color)

Your portrait profiles from the last couple of posts (except the last post) seem like they can use a bit more cranium in the back.

You are learning a lot and improving Vatsel, keep it up.

I think in your last one its interesting to note that you got the first "quick glance" more accuratey(in terms of post/angle) than even your last one.

You can see that the inclination of the head in the ref image is quite different to the other three of your studies, one way to help with this is a typical traditional technice and that is to hold your tablet in front of your face, line it up with the inclination of the face, move it to where your about to draw, and quickly draw a line from the angle your just got, other tan that the more you work the beter your observational skills will become!

So you wont even need that eventually,;)
