Hey <3. My name is Jacob Mobley and I'm here to party. No, wait. ... study. I'm here to study. I swear.
Here's my progress summed up in 3 illustrations. The 1st represents the 1st year of me being serious about art and so on and so on..

Things I'm working on this year: Recreating my whole illustration portfolio, studying hands and figures more (all animals but most importantly human figures), and hopefully getting to do more environments.

Great paintings such a quick improvment, do you have a website or online gallery?

I do but I deleted my illustration and concept art portfolio for the most part. You can see my life drawing in portraiture there atm and I'm afraid to say that is all that's basically there. I'm redoing my portfolio starting yesterday. Here's my site: jmob.carbonmade.com .

Colors! I love them! I like that you use them a lot, and to good effect. I have trouble using color well.

Thanks! I'm trying to find that right balance of saturation with the right colors to compliment it... it's a tricky balance and I'm still trying to find it! Thanks for the encouragement. I'd say do master studies and find books on color and light!

Books to get for understanding color:
-James Gurney's Color and Light
-Mike Avezado's Gumroad online tutorial 6$

GOGOGOOG!

I have the Gurney books, I just haven't made a concerted effort to practice more, and I should. Thanks! :)

Those 3 paintings from your first post really show a lot of improvement handling colours and lighting. That last illustration looks really nice colour and lighting wise. I need to do more anatomy studies as well. I also fully second your recommendation of James Gurney's book. It is awesome to read. :)

Thanks Dorothee! Yeah, the first one I didn't know how color or saturation worked so I just amped up the saturation for everything. I was heavily criticized for it so I decided to learn how to do realistic lighting. In the last painting I'm attempting to throw in some illustrative components and try telling a story with composition. I am now working on construction so I can improve on my use of construction in relation to value and color. :D I still want to use saturated colors but I need to find that balance of how much and where in the composition. :P

I see. Learning realistic lighting is one of my goals, too. That's one reason why I paint still-lifes and do other paintings from life. I love to throw in saturated colours and yes, one needs to find a balance. I'm in that place right now with one of my illustrations (that I will upload later in the Crititque section). :)

Oof. I didn't retain a lot. Here's some crude drawings from memory to test whether if I learned anything.

Woo, aweeesome work. Really great anatomy studies you got going on. Man, I need to hit up focused anatomy studies like this again! Looking forward to seeing more :D

Woo, dude, yes. "JUST DO IT!" For sure get back to that anatomy! I can't believe I put it off for so long...

Thanks for the encouragement, I appreciate it. :O I'll be keep on going on for sure. I hope to join in on the contests/challenges-- to add to my portfolio-- and study challenges.

Hey Jacob!

I finally am on here! Yay!

Your studies are looking good man, if it's been hard retaining some knowledge maybe try keeping it more focused. Instead of studying each part and then applying them all to a whole figure maybe try studying each part and creating each part separately from your imagination. Then you can try doing a full figure. I'm not sure if you already are doing this or not, I know that it helped me a lot personally though so I thought I'd shoot it your way.

Either way keep rocking it!

Yeah, I've been breaking the groups of anatomy into parts and studying them then... it's just going to take repetition. Thankfully I know what my problem is. wooo. just got to keep on working away! tapHYPE

Thanks Forrest! I'll definitely keep it up.

Here's a crude application drawing from imagination that was done for remembering placement and proportions. Remembering more and more <3 I almost know enough of the general anatomy groups to start diving into the deep water of the the nuance of specific muscle groups. :O tapHYPE

Here's a more concentrated study on the upper leg surface anatomy. The note taking is helping a lot too....I'm going to print it out and put it right next to me.
