Sketches, thoughts and other... things.
I’m in Rome and having trouble sleeping. Figured I could use the time for some much needed practice. As it goes I usually draw a pin up to test my abilities. I’ve always rationalized it that people tend to have an opinion one way or another about the female form… today I really wasn’t in the mood. It’s been a subject that I’ve used as a measuring stick but now find myself doing less and less of them. Now children/babies, THAT’s something to test your prowess with a pen! One mistake and you could age them anywhere from 30-90+!!! Its all about being subtle. Well… I’m nice and sleep now that I’ve written this post. Good night everyone.

Something a little different! I’m Currently taking a CGMA course in the Art of Colour and Light and feel like posting the past 3 weeks of assignments! learnt sooo so much in 5 weeks & still have 3 more weeks to go! I recommend this course to the fullest if you’re thinking about it. My instructors are Ryan Lang and Ty Carter.

This was week 3- materials & lighting.

These are great Dommifox!

Something I’ve been meaning to post and now that me and the class are doing color theory seems like a perfect time. Sorry I forgot where on tumblr I got this. Post me back and I’ll give you the credit you deserve. Also http://paletton.com is an amazing resource for making new random pallets.

Here’s my review for the Cintiq Companion, a device that was woefully released before quality control could be performed. Or at least, that’s what I’m imagining is the case, considering I received 3 broken ones now and I’ve watched many, many other artists around me have theirs break to the same problem I faced twice.

Oh well. I have a 13”HD on the way now, and my Companion will be out for its refund tomorrow.

Maybe years from now there will be models of the Cinitq Companion that actually function. My 21UX from 6 years ago is still holding strong, so it’s shocking that I had to have my Cintiq Companion replaced in under two months three times in a row.

Hmm… I guess I’ll just stick with my intuos pro. Thanks for the heads up. I might have wasted a lot of money.

A lot of people have messaged me about the 30 Day Challenge list. I hadn’t realized the link on my old post was down, so I’m reposting it now, as well as letting you all know for the next 8 weeks I’ll be posting every Monday with animated illustrations. Hopefully I can brighten up your otherwise dry work week Monday!

UPDATE: Sorry I fixed the list. There was bunch of dummy text in there. It’s all good now

Wow, great list! I might give this to my class, and should give it a shot my self.

wakefree asked: Did you get permission from Capcom to feature Chun-Li in your artbook? And if not, are you pulling in any profit from the artbook? If yes, well... then I have two words for you: "Copyright infringement."

robscorner:

It’s not that cut and dry. 

There are millions of doujins, artbooks, and fanart prints out there featuring other’s characters that are sold for profit. Artists make money off of commissioned licensed characters. A lot of it falls under fair use (transformative work), since the purpose of my sketchbook is an exploration of my art and style for scholarly review, not to financially or legally threaten or harm Capcom (which it isn’t; note that I also do work directly for Capcom sometimes) or trace existing licensed art. Granted, most of the content in my book is full of original stuff. But I state in the book that all characters and likenesses belong to their rightful owners.

You should read this article which explains more.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

Amazing!
