Oh snap...so a bit of an update, just one picture today. Ive worked out quite a few problems with my picture of Pepper. Its funny how bad she was before...but yeah, heres where I am now. Im really bad at composition..I really need to starrt planning out my backgrounds BEFORE i make a character..ugh...
Yo yo yo. Thanks delectro99! Im not really sure if that comment about blowing your mind is positive or negative, because personally, it would be negative...if my mind were to blow...I would be in mass amounts of pain, iI can tell you that now!
Ok, small update...ew, why am i drawing so much?
We drew with charcoal today...how weird...and um, some life sketches!
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....
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.
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
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.
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.
Finally finished it. It was challenging and quite fun to do. I also posted this in the "Finally Finished" Thread. Theres the original painting from early last year, and then the new under it. But heres the new one. Attachment 297010
