tripna's sketchbook

Unread postby tripna » Thu Jan 21, 2016 9:38 am

Hey everyone, I'm tripna, 20 and from Turkey. Thought it was time for me to post my daily studies somewhere, to get feedback. Then I found this place and really liked the small community here.
A little about me: I dropped out of art school(animation class) this semester to self-teach myself concept art and digital illustration. I've been studying at home for about 3 months now, before that I did study of course but not as serious as I'm doing now.
I've always been a traditional medium guy, I just switched to digital. I have no idea about painting, I'm kind of experienced in drawing. So this sketchbook page will probably include me, trying to adapt my hand to the digital medium; and then trying to learn how to paint.

I'll start by uploading my daily studies from yesterday, don't mind the Turkish notes on them :D

I've only did color works 2-3 times a couple of months ago, weren't really happy with them. Let me upload them.
I'll start doing value studies first, after I get the grasp of it, I'll start doing more color work.

Btw: I get some pixellation and decrase in quality when I upload the pictures, does anyone know how to avoid this?

Nice job with all of the studies, especially line sketches. They have a really nice flow and describe volume very well. For colour and value studies I suggest you to start with outline of the shadow and fill it with only one value. After that start adding smaller hue and value shifts to blend and detail the painting. Strong separation between light and dark values will greatly improve the read of the form. Keep it up with awesome work :)

Figures of today, first sketches are from imagination. The colored one is my friend who posed for me. Then I did some photo gestures.

Hey tripna,

Thanks for commenting in my sketchbook!

You've got some crazy cool lookin figure studies in here. Very nice rhythm in the lines. From what I can see the only thing I can really suggest is maybe take some time to draw more from imagination. Use those studies to influence your own work without reference. Also, it seems like you might be avoiding the painting aspect a bit here. You seem very confident with your lines, but the amount of line work you have versus the amount of painted work you have is vastly different. If you want to really get into concept art and illustration than I suggest you start taking some time to experiment more with painting. For instance just taking an hour to two hours a day to relax and play around in photoshop and try doodling something of your own can be incredibly beneficial for you. Especially if you aren't afraid to explore photoshop.

But you've got some really promising stuff so far, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes of it :) Keep it up!

Thanks so much for the comment forrest, you're definately right about the painting aspect, I've started learning value/painting this week, so you'll be seeing much more painting work from me from now on. As i said in the main message, I just switched to digital so I'm just trying to get used to it, when I feel more comfortable I'll start dem paintings.
I try to do more and more imaginative stuff everyday, and half the figures from those pages up there are from imagination btw, studies/imaginations kind of merged together on the page so hard do set them aside, I write on top of the pages which works are imaginative and which are not.

I suck so hard at values, but it's very fun to experiment.
The figure with the decent shading is from photo :D the rest is from back of my eyes

Nice stuff as always! I really like the wire frames!

I'm curious, do you have any longer term projects you're working on?

Doing studies all day is sort of like sharpening your tools and never building anything with them. Put those studies to use!

I've learned this the hard way. No one wants to see a portfolio full of studies!

Cheers!
