sony, love all the portrait practice you're doing!
but dude...get some paper that isnt all wrinkled!!! ;) i know newsprint wrinkles fast, i dealt with the same thing a lot too back when i was taking some classes. it can really screw up your ability to lay down tone.
i feel like in your digital pieces you have this fear of going to black. look at that black and white portrait of the blonde woman. in the photo the darks go all the way to black, but in your painting (and most of the others too) you only go to like a mid level gray.
Hey sony! You got some really nice portraits here! :)
I really like post 78 too! I could see it being a face of a sweet mech robot or something ha ha :D
Ryan a.: Lol yes my friend these are wrinkled newsprint, I donít know but I kind-a liking the smoothness of the surface while putting down the carbon on it :) For using black, I avoid the black in most cases just a preference :) thanks for pointing it. Cheers
Hatonacat: :) Thatís the beauty of abstract design. Glad u liked it.
Angel of lighting & Portrait of Air mobility in charge.
Slayer, bit clean though.
haha, the little plump sparrow looks cool :)
nice values in most of your comcepts! i think the darker ones come along better.
and the erin digi-painting are nicely done - good shapes, solid values and a bit of dimension is coming through.
I would say, humbly, to worry less about the details ( eyes, mouth, nose etc.,) and focus on the key shapes and shadow shapes first, then - sort-of creep up on key details that matter. this will help you get better likeness, proportion and perspective over time. At least that has been my experience. Also is there any chance at all you can find figure model workshops/walk-in sessions near where you live ? drawing from life is, in my opinion the single best way to learn to see and make decisions about what you see ( and decode a 3d world onto a 2d piece of paper and then re-imagine it as dimensional).
good teachers, good books:
Mike Matesi ( force drawing)
get a few of those and start reading and drawing!! ( I am, of course drowning in books.. it is the way of this thing ( or part of it, at least)!! And draw draw draw!!
Kevin: Thanks for the detailed reply,I have took you advice and doing as you suggested.:lifedrawing:
Hands Making love to paper
Here's a study of hands from Shawn barbers paining, but it turn out to be more than just the study.
I know guys Reference, am doing those to, but i found this interesting way to work for shape as whole
That last piece with the hands is... pretty crazy. And really good too.. strong hands! Just confused by the middle section of the paper which I can't seem to figure out.
Portraits are coming along nicely, amazed you can do that with that paper, haha. Try some colour though! And just how do you produce stuff like in post #78? Like it, by the way.
Nice going. Always a pleasure, never know what to expect.
Hi guys :steph:
After a long time here's my update. Hope u like it
b/w its a live digital painting.
Various heads in my head...:lineart:
Dragon and the Wii-King
this is fucking sweet,
maybe add a tiny piece of indentifiable tech to scale the scene, like a little ship, maybe a space shuttle thats been snapped into the hold of an alien ship.. or a country sized slab of liebenschraum... or camembert! something like that hehe ;)
Velocity Kendall : Thanks, haha i like the idea of camembert. :)
Green bears are friends
this is intrigueing
you know this guy right?
if not get ready for a treat
Velocity Kendall: thanks for the comments & oh wow such a treat thanks. Zdzislaw Beksinski did those around 1980s wicked cool.
Study of Composer Modest Mussorgsky by Ilya Repin
Nice studies, the hands in post 101 and the last repin study in particular! Fun cartoons too, though maybe think a little more about the thickness of each line - varying your line weight adds a certain something when all you have to work with is lines and flat colour ;)
Good work on Repin study, would love to see more color studies.
I have to agree with Monstertree, experiment with line thickness, at the moment you illustrations look a bit flat.
Keep it up. :rendered:
monstertree & Emil: Thanks, Will try to do so.
Study copy for understanding and getting better with colors of A Bemused Moment by the great Ilyn repin
Solid advice form Kevin W. For he longest time I had issues with value. I found the best way to find the complete range is to use only 3 blk, wht, and mid. Then in a master copy assign them to the painting your studying. You'll learn to see the differences pretty soon.
AztcFireFlower: Thanks for the comments :)
Now that's a cool sketchbook, and also a very diverse one! Keep up the good work!
