Subject title: Sketchbook of Markus Creation

Holy re-used joke on a webtoon! Hallelujah! I found a tutorial for the right settings and now am able to draw smoothly!!

I was right, the problem was the not 1:1 translation of my hand-movement onto the screen.

You may not see the difference without feeling it while drawing, but I assure you the difference is tremendous!

Left one done before and right one after:

I like that painting. The values are nice and solid. Next time, I would push the contrast even more, and try and get some dramatic cast shadows and hue shifts in the colors. Just some suggestions:) Seeing a lot of improvement here, can't wait to see where you go next!

Thank you Sanguine for feedback and suggestions! Will see if I can apply it on some next pictures.

NOTE: this design is not by me, its from a game. I just studied this armor. Not sure about this one, because the fur kind of sucks and looks unrealistic on my pic. Besides that kind of okay.

I see that I'm not the only one who likes knights :lol:
I like the helmet painting tho i think that you can study the form of it a bit more because at first it might look simple but when you draw it it gets complicated :)
I like to draw girls. If you like girls too, you should check my Sketchbook ^^
There's stuff on my Twitter and Instagram too.
I do streams sometimes, mostly weekends on my Picarto channel.

I made the process of the last picture (the armor turnaround) into a video as a speeddrawing.

(btw. i am confused about the meaning of speeddrawing. Isn't it both a speeddrawing- when I draw something in a very short time and also when I draw normal, but record it and speed the video up very much? Or do those processes have other names?)

I may be wrong but I think when you speed up a video it's called a timelapse, when you do a drawing that would normally take an hour in 5 minutes it will be a speed drawing.

Makes sense.

I began creating my own world now.
This week I made several drawings of it and I made all of them into a timelapse video. This time I did not make only timelapse with maybe music, but I tried to make it more interesting and talked over it.
Initially I wanted to make it 30minutes, but I had some trouble talking so much. I made it 16 minutes now.

It would be awesome if some of you could find the time to watch it and give me some feedback on the format, on my ideas and on the drawings. Especially the format, because I plan on making a series out of it.

Here's the video:

And because I don't want to only post a link, here is the first picture from the video, a set of thumbnails:

I'ts nice to start a personal process.
I've watched your video and i like the blacksmith's building you've drawn there. With the windmill I'd suggest you to don't be afraid to draw over the form and add a bit of perspective to make them look more realistic :)
Also with the thumbnails if there's going to be that village that you mentioned somewhere on the picture I'd suggest to mark a space that that village will occur so the viewer know how big it is compared to the rest of picture.
And don't be afraid of practicing drawing longer lines. The hand skills comes after some effort ;)

It's good to see you've started on your world building! I know how difficult it can be, and to study everything in a world that makes it believable and realistic is an incredibly hard task and takes many years to master. However, I've been doing it a long while now and the only things to have come out of it is all good things! I've enjoyed it so much and the freedom to be able to create your own worlds and characters is absolutely fantastic.

Saying that, I'd suggest you definitely do a lot of studies on this journey, like a heck of a lot! xD It's good to have a balance between memory and studies, but if you haven't built a memory first then you have nothing to work on from your visual library. Either way I wish you the best of luck!

@ Koźlik: Thx for your feedback and Input! Cool, that you watched it! Yes, showing the village in the context of those thumbnails I should do. Not exactly sure what you mean by `dont be afraid to draw over the form to make it realistic`.

@ NesoKaiyoH: Thx for your feedback and Input! Lots of studies, got it! Good thing about that is, that studies themself can look very nice, so theres something to show.

I've noticed also your colours are very typically of colour, if that makes sense. Colour wouldn't look that bright or saturated in real life unless influenced by powerful sunlight. Saturation usually comes in the shadows, and you have bounce light from the sky. Your colours are too monotone and lack variation. For instance the sky would graduate from different shades of blue and even reds and greens and purples depending on time of day, and grass would have reds, pinks, yellows, browns etc in it as well, also dependent on time of day. I think it'd be good to do some researching into that, James Gurney's Colour and Light: A guide for the Realist Painter would help a lot.

You are right, I noticed that myself,too. I have a bit trouble with weaving another color(-tone) for example into the sky without it looking like some floating, dark blue object. I guess I have to practice blending there. Okay, If you say Gurney would help, maybe I will order that book. I have "Imaginative Realism" but the other one not, yet.

Episode 2 of "Creating my own world":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCIE5EbEp0I

@NesoKaiyoH: Of course I could not implement your suggestions with more diversified colors, yet. But I have it in mind and try to learn that for some of the next pictures. Takes at least a little bit of time.

And here's one page of studies/sketches from the video:

Looking good Mark. Now ik that you dont work with pen and ink, but I know a channel on youtube that does a lot of tutorials on urban sketching and stuff and I think youll find a lot of it usefull. Talk about how to direct a persons eye, create interest in certain places of the drawing, and also the art of suggestion in drawing(not drawing everything, but making a suggestion of what is there without actually drawing it). He also has great stuff on environments like trees, rocks, cliff-faces and a bunch of other stuff.

https://www.youtube.com/user/LighterNot ... helf_id=14

Thats a set of playlists that I think youll find quite useful, you can pick and choose at your own pace :D

Very quick facial expression sketches (wanted to make them all just into smiley-faces, but got way too detailled)
