View Full Version : Character Paintings and Practice
April 8th, 2007, 11:53 PM
Here are some stuff I've been working on. All personal projects that I've managed to sqeeze in after work. Most of them started from random marks. :bashful:
Some studies from Photo.

these are all really gorgeous. I especially like the second, a lot of great hinted detail.

lovely work man. You seem to be playing with focus in a very lovely way, but I would get some more focus points clarified. My fave is the second one (and 3rd): if her face was slightely sharpened, I'd say perfect. Please post more, great work -

nice paintings! I like the 4th the most.

Really nice colours! Perhaps you should sharpen some of the edges.
April 9th, 2007, 01:25 PM
Nice work! I agree with mr visions, some sharper edges could really make these peices stand out a whole lot more. some things look a bit to soft. 2nd is my fave. It would be nice to see you take that one further. Suhweet stuff!

hey mate, great job, I like number 2 and 4 starting from top the most. The other pictures are good too but the contrasts have been pushed abit too far for my taste. Good study as well

These are super!
I am going to agree with Troll though on the edges. some of them are a bit too soft.
great stuff though none the less.

Thanks a bunch for the comments and crits. I guess sharpening some edges, especially in focal areas will be an important thing to watch out for. As for contrast, I've been conciously pushing it recenlty. Perhaps a bit much. I would like to experiment with different ranges of value as well. :teeth:

awesome color in the geisha's forehead!

fantastic painting, thanks for sharing! 2nd one down is my favorite. incidentally what program do you prefer to use? I'd love to see some process stuff for that 2nd one if you've got it. Any way very excellent work and props on doing art after work, keep it up!

these are very beautiful! thank you for sharing, i think my favorite is the 3rd one~ something about the colors you used catches my attention! very lovely work :)

there all amazing but i love the second one, the third looks like a blood elf from WoW :P
April 10th, 2007, 01:13 PM
really well done! exquisite strokes and rendering :) the colors on the last two are phenomenal!
April 12th, 2007, 09:31 PM
Thanks again guys. Yes Tydal, that was my homage to WOW. ;) Clandestine_IX, I like photoshop only because I'm more familiar with it, but recenlty, I can't work without adding at least some Painter into the mix, especially after realizing how important brush marks were. Anyways, here's some process steps. There's quite a jump between 3 and 4. I guess I was feeling inspired.

nice stuff man. i love the blood elf and the one under it, hell, i love all of 'em. nice style =)
April 14th, 2007, 09:37 AM
hey great work, the first one is my favorite, the light and coloring are awesome, I wish the second one would have this light and softness too
April 17th, 2007, 06:58 AM
fuckin A mate!! The first and the fourth one just jumped on my desktop! couldn't stop them from doing so!! Gottaluvit!
April 17th, 2007, 11:16 AM
arrrrg. so freakin good. the first and second ones provide endless inspiration for me. i've had them saved since you first posted and always return to them a few times when browsing my inspirado folder.
April 17th, 2007, 04:55 PM
I adore them. Especially the "army-girl".
April 18th, 2007, 10:13 AM
These are just incredibly beautiful. I love the first three. Great job!
April 18th, 2007, 01:01 PM
Yes! Beautiful. Once again I want to draw in PS. I might jsut do that.

Did you ever post the first picture somewhere? As wallpaper or character art maybe? I got this feeling I saw it somewhere, but I can't put my finger on it...

Very good portrait paintings and loose character designs!
Love them. more more!
