Alright, to start off let me just say that I LOVE this piece. You have done a nice job with the hair and the shading. The clothes are amazing, I can see the folds and how much work you put into this to make it look three dimensional and realistic. I can see every part of this has meaning and it looks like it has emotion behind it, it was not just made to be a piece of paper with some pretty scribbles on it. I have seen things like this before, but the way you demonstrate it is completely your own. In general this piece is amazing and I really look forward to seeing more like it.
In front of a so bloodish red, we only can have the eyes captured by this drawing. Maybe a little bit shocked too. One or two part of red help a lot to give some life in the way you drew it. Sadly, the contrast of the lines are at some place (hairs, left arm) not enough. It may be would for the hair, but doesn't seem so for the arm. It's a pity! Cause the gesture is there, we can feel the movement of a man who fell on the floor. One strange thing is the blazon with the bird who seemed to have the same texture as the clothing (it may not be metal) but which doesn't seem to move an inch. Some ameliorations should be done there. That's it: in a general way, it's a good drawing: the name is well-chosen, it's expressive and the place of the red is perfect. The losses of decor and of contrast by some places are the biggest problem. Really nice!
Wow this looks very amazing. I really like the color scheme and the bold red for the blood effect, now that's very neat. . Also The details are so smooth and detailed the subject just pops to life. Also I like the arrangement of the tools. This is really nice. Keep up the great work.
i have many many more but i didn't photograph them because of the bad weather (which makes bad lighting) you should definitely! I never knew it was so fun drawing in a sketchbook now i never wanna stop, i haven't drawn digitally for a while OAO at EECC i will bring my sketchbook so if you drop by we can look at eachother's sketchbooks
haha I understand very well the problem with the nasty weather xD I hope it will get better soon though ;u ; I always end up drawing on my lectures notes instead hahaha ;u ; but yeah the freedom a sketchbook gives is awesome >u<
and omg that would be fun, only that I doubt I can make it there *cries**poorstudentotl*
thank you! you have to draw on good paper not copy paper, then the pencil slides better and the eraser erases the lines better, you can have more tones and the over all quality of the artwork increases. I drew on copy paper all my life and there's a big difference when changing to good paper. Aside from that there is practice of course
ooooh yes the thin ones are so so so so good for fine lining I used to use them all the time for my colour drawings but ever since my pens ran out of ink I haven't really been colouring any of my drawings. I kinda miss having colourful drawing books so tomorrow I'm gonna get some more to colour and line with
yea, when they run out of ink you just have to buy new ones, that's why they are cheaper than the ones you can replace the ink inside (i use to have a set like that but it was stolen one by one D: ) i wish i had more time to color my drawings too, i have such a wonderful set of colored pencils
my sketchbook is Fabriano, an A5 version, pencil o.35 and 0.7 and red ink, you can see them in the photo, i didn't use black ink although it's in the photo, it's from when i used it on another sketch that i will post soon and the contrast is just a little photoshop contrast, the white is also added in photoshop
and for how many years have you been drawing? how often? a lot of times improvement comes from drawing a lot every day, not every weekend or every month. Sometimes even if someone draws every day a lot, the improvement comes slow, and that is because we draw what we know without trying to learn new hings, try new things. just like in school the teacher teaches a new lesson every week, the same has to be done to improve in art. It's the same principle. This week i try to draw water, next week i try to draw metal, next week i learn about human eyes, next week about trees etc. i think you get the picture. But i think that with practice every day and with trying new things every week, anyone will improve. i personally don't believe in talent just in hard work
