    Simply Seage ~ Fantasy Portfolio

    ~~Run along to the last page for decent stuff!~~



    Well, I finally have a spark of inspiration, and so I need to go with it. I was going to make a new SB, but I may as well stay here.
    Hope to learn a lot from you guys here.

    Ok, so I have no idea how to write between my images, so im gonna write up here and you can scroll down to see what the heck im talking about.

    First image is regular lifedrawing at school. Unfortunatly, i wasn't allowed to add shading or anything, and had to erase my underlines! Boo..awe well.

    Second is another picture of Artgerms Pepper, looking a bit different, with her wack feet sizes...yay for paying attention!

    Third we have a girl in a black dress, painted with my brushpen. Dont you love the detail on the head? I know...this took me min---hours....

    And last but not least, my sketch for my sisters birthday! I hope she likes it, and I hope she gets the joke. Shes no angel! >.<
    She turns 15 today

    This is a bit delayed comment, but since we're still on the same page, wanted to put my two cents in. I like how there's a lack of detail on the head, it gives it a nice flavor and style. Also the details on the fringe of the dress (maybe not intentally left there, maybe they were) like the cross-hatching adds to it. I don't feel like the boots match the overall tone of the sketch, but that's just my opinion. Overall, nice.

    For the life sketches, were the people not moving much? Or did you sketch crazy-fast? My experiances with life-sketches is that people move far too much to get really anything. Of course, I'm sketching them without them knowing, and people don't tend to stay in the same position for long periods of time.

    Look forewards to seeing more.

    Hey guys thanks for dropping by.

    Cold- I've got a portfolio to do to get into a college I want, so I wont be stopping anytime soon Thanks man for dropping by my tiny page!

    thedestroyer- Thank you. I will keep it up

    Taven- Thanks for the your opinion on the girl in the dress. The fringes and stuff were intentional and the boots, i agree, are waaack, haha. When i looked at it the other day I was like "Well then...I killed all and any elegance this picture once had...."
    As for your question, it really depends. Obviously the naked guy wasnt getting up and running laps around the school so hes ok, but the others were figiting like crazy. I just throw down a gesture of what I see at first, then build on it from looking at them. Even if they have moved, as long as I have that gesture to pin point the details, I can finish the drawing. Hope that answers your question

    Ok, bit of a sketch dump, no talkie, just artie!

    A few paintings and one picture, from school. We got to work with mixed media, so I actually used charcoal, pastels, pencil crayons, my brushpen and paint. It was awesome. The painting of the lady was done with the glazing tech. Its the first time ive ever done it. It was pretty fun so i did it with the mixed media stuff too. The white drawing is the starts to a tonal drawing we're doing. Should be fun.

    Hope u like. Crits are welcome

    I hope its cool that im posting 2 days in a row...

    This is a WIP im doing from one of my old sketches. I actually painted this before, but in my eyes, it looked like garbage, and now I have a bit of a better grasp on color theory and painting, i figured I would try my hand at it.
    So, if u see anything u dont like, tell me about it. Thanks guys.

    I was doing a speed painting this morning, and i had a pretty decent idea in my mind, but when it came to actually going through with it, i couldnt get my idea out... Im so used to just painting some girl doing something boring, but i want to get more out of my work. I need better story telling skills. So in this image which isnt done, I wanted to have this senile ex girlfriend sitting in a chair looking all crazy and such with a weapon in her hand, and some blood around the room of the man she just murdered...but i couldnt think how to tell that part of the story..what could i do to make it look convincing and not just like she hasnt washed her walls in a while?
    Gahhh, whatever...heres where i stopped.

    I know i already answered this in Vent, but it wud be rude if i just ignored it in here too, lol. And yes, it was a study from one of my classes at college. Quick sketch then tightened up.

    Im hoping to get some new sketches up today if my scanner stops being a cheap ho...

    Because you used super-smooth brushes?
    Look at how the brightest spots are reduced on the ref and don't spread around.
    Also watch out the position of her eye.
    There are some good sketches in your sketchbook, keep it up!

    Ohh watch out for anatomy!
    Your brain was tricking you... you didn't paint the perspective right and the eyes are totally out of proportion.
    My tip would be to do some anatomy studies... not copies but studies.
    I mean to analyse some anatomye from books like bridgman's constructive anatomy and to relate it to some pictures or yourself.

    Another thing is that you don't know how to use contrast and value the right way...
    You can't smooth out everything you have to know when to use contrast and the right values.

    check out the peer project:

    and keep at it

    Leo Ki: Yeah, those damn smooth brushes! I actually noticed her eye when I put the ref up. How did i miss something like that?! Thank you for the compliment/crit and for stopping by

    Haxxxor: Im a huge slacker. The only studies ive done recently were hand studies, because my hand just happened to be there in plain sight, and that was convenient, lol. Yeah, a few other people told me that too when I showed them this. Its not so much that I dont understand, its more that I get overwhelmed when it comes to colors, that I forget...which is just as bad. I used to only work with B&W but now Im trying to break out of that and add some color. Thanks for the link btw, im gonna check it out.

    Ok, since we're on the topic of values, i wanted to do a study from Ref. So here it is. Next time i wont cut off the hand and foot, baaaaaad me!

    looks like you know alot right off the bat on what each part of the human form looks like but I think the proportions when put together are getting lost in translation. Also I feel this one was much stronger than your later version. It's cool to use odd colors such as the blue on skin tone but I do feel in this instance the warmer colors in the first gave alot more vitality to the woman.

    But it's good stuff going in the right direction keep up with the posting cause each one has a show of more improvement. looking forward to seeing your progress

    @ TeaDrinker. Thank you. I have to agree with you. That first one was much better, i was thinking colors, not tones when i worked on it, so when i go back to it later, i am going to try to bring it back to a proper tonal piece. I have a basic knowledge of the human form, and i do get confused when piecing it together, but im getting better and still studying.

    Ok, a few new thingys ive been doing.
