Tribute to fantasy. i love you mariah carey.

hey i haven't really been drawing as much lately because i spend a lot of time learning about and making music so i don't really have much new stuff
so most of this is pretty old:

i'm excited to get more into the online art world again i kind of miss it
i'm gonna try to get in the habit of updating daily
hopefully my future posts will prove that i'm better than i was when i made most of these, even tho if i'm updating daily it probably won't be very good lmao

Re: Oh When You Walk By Every Night Talkin' Sweet And Lookin

Postby KidKong » Tue Sep 09, 2014 10:03 am

Very nice work! I think the first one is actually my favorite so far :) If I would have to nitpick I'd suggest to watch out for proportions, it seems like you are going for a slightly elongated style/tall and slender body builds and it looks great in most cases, but in some pieces like "kid seperated shadow copy copy.jpg" the torso seems unnaturally long. Really looking forward to seeing more from you :D

Hey Caleb, I'm also here because of that crit you gave to kikindaface.

Really digging your style so far. I don't have a whole lot to comment on atm but I'm looking forward to seeing more!

KidKong: Thank you! The first one is my most recent thing on this page, so it's my favorite too lmao. And spot on critique! My proportions were really bad up until a few weeks ago. Like you said i do use elongated proportions on purpose, but some things like that kid's torso, make me cringe. It's so embarrassing! Getting crits from people helps me remember and never make the same mistake again, where as when i just crit myself i forget, so thank you v much!!

Luna: Thanks for all the compliments Luna! I'm so happy it helped! I plan on posting information on drawing the head in different perspectives some time in the next few days so check back here for that if you think it'll be helpful :)

Enydimon: Thanks! I'm glad it seems like i have a style lol


I did some landscape studies today and did a landscape painting that i was gonna post but i decided i wanted to work on it some more
so here's a drawing i just did cause i wanted to make sure i had something new to post here today:

Luna: lol. i thought they looked ugly when i saw them just now so i deleted them, maybe i'll re-upload them later though!

on this first one i was just messing around with process and style with focus on trying to keep my shapes simple

that new painterly-style you're working on with the tree is really cool. Draw more, really like what I see here!

@ Joelhladky: Thanks you! I will!

@ Tilune: Thanks!! I appreciate the kind words!

I read a book saying to study contour and shadow separately so you can get better at both individually, so i didn't do any line drawing or use any guides for this next study

( side note: I use people's selfies for value studies because the fake flat lighting in professional photography isn't really conducive to learning form)


Okay i'm off to go watch ghost in the shell cause it always inspires me to draw!
I might post on here again today if i come up with anything
Have a good day!

Nice study. It has a good light diffusion, particularly on the neck and hands. Those subtle color changes really help to show the form.

A really great sketchbook! I really love how you draw faces, especially the eyes. Has a oldschool pulp touch. Also the painterly feel of your last study rocks. (Just wondering what book did you read?)

@ WCxBR: Thank you! !

@ Qikalain: Thanks! Is old school pulp like Robert Mcginnis and Paul Rader covers? That campy exaggeration of femininity inspired me to give people bigger cheekbones and fake eyelashes. If that's what you're talking about, good catch. I didn't think anyone would ever make that connection. And i was reading "On Drawing Trees and Nature" by J.D. Harding.

I don't have anything today! I had a not great day and i just wanted to draw on paper not do any digital stuff so here's an old painting just to keep up with daily posts
this painting was a throw back to this old method i used when i first learned to paint but now that the painting itself is old it's like a throwback to a throwback
I still kind of like its value composition and the anime-ish features, though

I'll post the rest of the paintings I did while I was gone tomorrow. I was mainly drawing and learning while I was away so I don't have too much to post but maybe I'll go through some files and collect it together and post that stuff too.

I've been putting off detail in my paintings for a while because it's possibly the least important aspect of a painting but i've been realizing people like to see you care about your painting and detail is a sign of caring. So i've been running with that idea lately.
With that said here are some more paintings!

HEyya there Caleb!

I really admire your stylistic range! You have great expression in your characters faces as well. =]

Mah faves are the save the nymphs, and the 2girls, those are both great.


Keep up the excellent work! =]

Greyskill: Thanks! Now days I prefer to draw people without expressions because it's makes things eternal feeling but sometimes i worry that people won't see all the time and effort i put into learning facial expressions. Glad that you can!

Donato: Thank you very much !

Kikindaface: I'll try and thanks! !

Siji: Thanks ! If you like clean art you may not like this next thing i'm gonna post tho!
