BIG DUMP! So lately I've been participating in the Daily Spitpaint group on Facebook, and have really been pushing myself to contribute as much as I can each week. So here I'm posting images from the...
Okay, tried to correct the lighting in the scene, based on an upper left primary source, and then a warm bounce light.
Wow, I really REALLY appreciate you taking the time to do this crit. At it's simplest level, I do understand light, I think I am just trying to make things too complicated and not obeying general...
Some more work on the knight sketch. Added some more clouds to fill the empty space to the left of the knight. Knocked back some of the brighter gradient transitions on the helmet and on the...
Here's another piece I started working on, maybe about 3 hours in? I spent more time cleaning up and rendering a few areas. 1907949
Excellent. Some great points. I think one of my big problems is confusing a piece of concept art with a finished illustration. I feel like I should get a piece done in a few hours, and am not...
Also, if you could direct me to any good resources/videos on color in general, that would be amazing.
Thanks! This is great feedback. I'll get to work!
Do I need to be cleaning up/tightening edges? Rendering surfaces out more?
Hey everyone! This is the latest image I've been working on. I'm having some issues adding that last layer of detail.
It's been a while since I've updated. I've gone back to focusing primarily on value.
So I started roughing in some values. I just need to start setting some goals. For me, it might be to get a piece finished every 2 weeks or something like that. I tend to leave things sit for too...
For the pieces that I have somewhat finished, I guess I never felt like I got to a nice finished, sharp image. Perhaps I just get too impatient, and don't actually put in the hours needed to finish...
So I'm sure there are other out there who suffer from being unable to finish pieces. I get paralyzed after sketching something out, and don't know how to proceed. I find the idea of going...
Beefed up his shoes/boots a bit. Not sure if I want to take this piece any further, but want to take crits, apply them and move on. Am I hitting on any of the crits you guys posted with this update...
Awesome, thanks guys! wilkerson, great advice. I will definitely be using the lasso tool a lot more. All in all, aside from messy edges, how is this piece feeling? Fairly successful?
Thanks Derra. Yeah, definitely agree, more practice. I'm not sure I completely understand your example of defining form on the upper arm. Are you saying don't rely on individual or small...
Sharpening some details and pumping up the saturation on the red accents.
Added another image into the mix.
So I've been doing more and more sketching, and...
Start of a landscape. A bit generic, but will ref some architecture for the background.
A couple new sketches. Gonna start digging into this sketchbook hard.
So I jumped into another piece, this time a creature. Just started playing around with this. Lots more to be worked on, but anything you think I should approach differently? Looking at it for a while...
Pushing values and cleaning up. Still need to pull some reference for the environment.
Well, here we go, my big sketchbook kickoff.
