Art dump, in no particular order of time or medium.
Oh man, it's been a month since I've posted in here? Shame on me.
I've been fucking around in Photoshop a lot. A few of the results are pretty, but I know they could be so much better,...
Ah, I like this! The white background provides nice contrast with the saturated colors used for the figure. The moon behind the figure's head looks slightly misshapen, but I like the texture you...
Oh, I know just what you mean! Really frustrating. Sometimes it's the paint -- certain pigments settle into the paper as soon as you make a stroke, so even when you add water or more pigment, a...
I love seeing your progress throughout this sketchbook; the drawing in post #115 in particular really caught my eye. I'll be visiting again. :)
Speedpaint, one hour.
I'd try tinting the background with blue to make the ass pop out more; the original version contained enough white to keep it from blending in with the background, but that's no longer the case now....
I really like some areas of this painting -- the checkered shirt and the head of the axe, especially. Other areas, such as the man's pants and the wolf's shadowed side, look streaky from not enough...
Teeth are tricky to render; generally they look crooked or protruding or unrealistic if over-defined, as the ones in your painting are. Try focusing less on defining the edge of each tooth than on...
So I've realized that nearly all of my frontal view faces are cut in half, making me look like a lazy artist. Which I AM, but I'm trying to work past that.
A sketch to loosen up; I...
RickyRubyo -- Yeah, I really need to get back to my Bridgman studies. Thanks for stopping by. :)
Inkomi -- Thanks. :)
The woman's right foot has wonky anatomy in the ankle area, and her headdress is making a nasty tangent with the edge of the paper. Looking forward to seeing your progress on it. :)
I love the painting in post #129; the details and colors really turned out beautifully. In fact all of your fantasy watercolors have this wonderfully dreamy feel. I'll definitely be following this...
dU5K -- Thanks! :)
Two more today, a watercolor and a digital.
Clothing! Non-naked figure! All too rare a sight in my sketchbook, unfortunately. I've really got to lose...
Awesome sketchbook! I really love the Can Opener Head painting -- it has great mood. :)
I don't paint female bodies nearly as much as I should.
Really wanted to move outside of my color comfort zone here.
Quick, messy, and slightly insane. I...
Thanks, man. :)
Not satisfied with this. May do a couple more.
As predicted, I found a few things to tweak, namely adding in that nipple I forgot. :geekg:
Actually, there's still plenty I'm not happy with, but it's of the type that demands an entirely...
I'd change the angle of the pencil; in this piece it looks like it'll go through the side of his arm as opposed to into its crook.
whisperss -- thanks for stopping by. :)
paperhead -- I'm trying. ;)
Latest digital, probably finished:
I say "probably" because there are a few nitpicks I'll probably notice when...
More watercolors, playing around with different color choices.
Her head is too big for her body. Looking at the original painting, you need to thicken the neck and widen her shoulders to keep her from looking like a bobble-head.
Gave up on this one:
