It's just a nickname, still too far from being one...

Hey thanks for stopping by my SB. Was greatly impressed by your initial stuff. Like how you were varying between different styles. Your faces so far have been delightful and of what I saw you are getting better. The sketchiness of your lines is something you will overcome with practice and more confidence. I heard it also helps working with a non-eraseable medium such as pen.
There is nice progress on the last wip. Good job with the current inking. Mind sharing how you are inking it digitally? (If it is of course). Only crit I find is that both hands look about the same size, in which the hand farther back should be a bit smaller than the one on her face. I think the front hand should be a tad bigger, just remember that the hand is about the size of the face. Hope that helps, looks good so far and keep looking forward for more
Been dropping by your sketchbook a few times by now so Guess It's time to make a comment. I really like how you treat faces. your lines feels very sensitive and delicate.
On this last one however what is happenign to the left arm + I can udnerstand that it must be goign backward due to the positioning of the lower arm. But her shoulder and body positionin or how the cloth reacts gives no indication to it instead it just looks really weird. Not sure how to fix it though.
Trashy - Thanks so much! It means a lot to hear about the improvement. And I plan to colour my latest algenpfleger - Thank you for the lovely comment! Haha, you like my jaws? I guess my refs have lovely jaws then And inking is just about patience, I'm sure you can find it in you Maestro Andres - Thank you so much, both for the encouragement and advice, very appreciated. Will have to try drawing with a pen, been a while! I'll also chech her hand out, thanks for the tip.
As for inking (which yes, is digital), I first set by brush to these settings: http://suta-raito.com/PSroughlines.shtml Then it's really just a lot of patience! I used a 3 pxl hard round (with the A4 sketch scanned at 400dp). I often make fast swooshy lines first, esp.if they're long, and then go over them again, just bit by bit, often edit and fix them along the way. I found this tutorial (http://andoledius.deviantart.com/art...orial-31211343) long ago, been using it since. Check it out, he explains it better! catukas - Thanks a lot If you have problem inking, the tutorial I linked above might be helpful to you! Eux - Thanks for the nice comment, glad to hear As for her arm, I think I see what you mean. If you (or anyone!) could tell me more precicely how to fix it, I'd be grateful. But I'll take a look at it, see what I can do!
Anyway, I haven't worked on my big inked pic since my last WIP, been a bit busy. But I still managed to whip some Loomis studies up, thought I'd upload them It's the first time I've done these mannequins, so they're quite weird at the moment, but will hopefully be smoother with practice
Hæ.. vá þér hefur farið mega mikið fram fullt af geggjuðu dóti hérna.. en já ég er ekki í fornáminu ennþá... stefni í það eftir sumarið en eins og er, er ég bara í áföngum þar í kvöldskóla sem ég fæ metið upp í stúdentspróf
anyways.. eitt sem ég var að pæla með konuna sem u ert að teikna... það er eins og það vanti eitthvað á vistri vanganum á henni.. eyrnasnepil þetta er eitthvað smá off! annars er þetta heavy nice mynd
alright, then your jaws have lovely refs... err ... refs have.... whatever
loving those skeleton poses, seem to help a great deal, i think i should do some of those as well!
and thanks for the very nice words in my little book
um, you asked about my brushes, and i would love to tell you about them. but i use sai, which works completely different from photoshop. it has really smooth brushes and is easy to use. lookie here: link and here
look really good,about some of the rest - maybe you should to use airbrush or soft brush more rarely,try to put simple colors with hard brush 100/100% and then you start to messing on them with different opacity levels to get nice shot on I think this may help you to understand what I mean
MARMENTIDO - Thank you so much! Carbono - Thanks a lot! Also for reminding me of the topic update, fixed! sjuskadur - Já ok, ertu að fara í inntökuprófin bráðlega, í apríl/maí, ekki satt? Gangi þér vel! Og takk fyrir ábendinguna og hrósið, ég er búin að laga stelpuna aðeins núna algenpfleger - Hehe, lovely jaw refs indeed! Used myself for the latest one, actually But yeah, I've learned lot from the skeletons, I recommend it! And thanks again for answering my question, I'll have to check Sai out! atlantik - Hey, thanks so much for the advice and tips. That link was excellent I agree, I have to boycott the airbrush and use the hard stuff now!
Alrighty, I've finally done some more work on the girl. I took all of your advice to heart and fixed what I could What do you think, improvements or not? It'd be great to get feedback But I'll probably start on the guy now!
if i know any useful tutorials she asks. WELL LET'S SEE
the reason why i started painting in july 07 was linda bergkvist. her work is just INSANE - and look at her tutorials. i learned SO MUCH from them, it's unbelievable, and i find myself going back to them really often. look. click me if you dare :3
apart from that, there#s some other good places with lots of stuff, most of it unsorted though
like this awesome allround tutorial or all the imaginefx workshops. there's also tons of knowledge stored in some collection places, like here and here.
but i recommend linda's stuff the most, it's what really got me started
Thanks so much for the links! I'd forgotten all about Linda's tutorials, saw them some time ago. She's so talented, so they're very useful! And the others are bookmarked! I'll take a good look on those all, I'm sure they're very helpful. Thanks so much
Well then, just thought I'd throw up the finished ink I finished the guy today, he was great fun! I also did some touch-ups on the girl.
Now it's just the colour. You probably all know this, but that's definitely not my strong side! And I want to stay away from the airbrush this time, so it'll definitely be hard and different. We'll see how it goes, I'll probably post some wips soon and beg for help
And, of course, if you see something that needs fixing in the ink, by all means speak up so I can work on it
