Hi there guys,
I have been struggling with this piece for a few days now.
It's driving me crazy.
So this here is an earth giant, and the emphasis is on GIANT. I restarted this
Decided to do a fantasy piece. Some sort of ancient earth/rock colossus/golem in a realistic landscape (ie. grass, trees, some hills). The lighting will be from the sunset, which the colossus will...
Colors done. Not sure if I'm doing this right.
New layer set to overlay, I then choose 5 or 6 swatches.
Fill in the main colors at about 60 % opacity brush, and then set to something like 10-15%...
What I really really like about your digital stuff is the texture work. Amazing how you pull them off, and it looks simple (I bet it isn't, though), but great looking.
I currently struggle with...
Thanks a bunch for the step by step pics, helps learning a lot.
By the way are you using reference photos for these?
WIP, didn't decide yet if I should give him the spear or the sword.
Guess who's back from the dead :dead:, not like anyone cares :D
Sweet setup! And you know what, I can't really describe how, but from the photo, from the setup and everything I can SEE that you love doing these :)
To me, traditional media is a chore :( But...
I'll be sure to try that some time, thanks :)
Another portrait. My lovely girlfriend this time :)
No cheating this time! Took waaaay longer though. And found out flipping the image...

About the hand study value. Thing is the reference photos were shot with a flash, and so all the value is washed out. Just white hands. And I didn't want to use my...
Crap, my english is broken. I meant watercolors :/ Thought oils = watercolors, appearently not.
Sweet illustration. What's the story?
Damn, every time I come to this sketchbook, I kick myself for starting to draw so late :)
Your studies are excellent. Don't ever stop with the progress :)
Crap. Internet spasmed. Sorry.
Sweet sketching. How big is that sketchbook? The one with the skull design, and the little boy. It looks really small.
Also that "X" on the fat dude's penis made me laugh :D The whole theme is...
Sweet designs on that desk, man. It looks really professional!
Also, I admire people who do oils :l
I have a lingering HATRED for oils since my childhood. I remember we had to do those in...
Rotor, thanks man. I'll try your advice :)
Karmi (can I call you that? haha. Or better yet, tell me your name!), I'm studying hands from sight, yes. The scribbly left hands are mine. And the...
Hey man, you've reminded me to do those portraits! By the way, I don't have a photo to compare it with, but considering your earlier portraits, they're all pretty similar, so I guess you're pretty...
Sweet sketchbook. I had a pleasure watching your progress, you've improved greatly :)
Keep at it!
More hand studies! From photos this time.
I'd appreciate if someone would point out any obvious errors I made.
I can't put my finger on some of them.

Gives me hope that maybe I too can someday improve as much as you :)
5 stars from me for your hard work and obvious...

Back to pencil for STUDIES, woo!..
P.S. I hate the attachment manager. >:|
