"I specialise in animation, but we learnt a whole lot there, from motion graphics, digital imaging to crazy 3D stuff. I've always been a neither-here-nor-there kind of person. Meaning jack-of-all-trades and master of none." Haha, I can totally relate. Well, I guess a lot of people can too, but anyways.. nice stuff you have here!
Lots of good advice here already, not much for me to add on.. Keep painting! and thanks for stopping by my sb!
the ANGRY filipino - Nah, i'm not good at all. You have to remember that i color pick and you don't. *bows* And you are right, the ears are off when i look at it again. Thanks for pointing that out.
Oh, since you are in the making toy business, why not you make the headband toy and send one over to me? Hehe.
Randomself - You are welcome! Just remember to work hard when you're schooling okay? That is where you learn most. Treasure your lecturers and ask them all the questions you can ask!
I AM AN IDIOT. Thinking that i could try out this week's CHOW. -____- Couldnt get the proportion/color/face/blending/everything actually right so i just decided to stop painting it. I'm making Scheherazade look bad.
I think i need to go back to basics and start learning to blend/paint again.
*back to Bumskee's photoshop digital painting thread*
Your fleshtones are good, and your CHOW isn't as bad as you think it is, might want to try out a few different color combos next time you try something like that. A lot of stuff we do doesn't seem to work at first, gotta experiment. Sometimes you put down the right color and whee, it works. Your drawing is improving, keep going, your blending needs more work, be patient while doing those, right now they look a bit too much like candy floss. (yum) Try using a different set of brushes perhaps?
Anyway, thanks for dropping by my SB, you're more hardworking than me right now, makes me feel bad, especially since you're working and still finding the time to churn these up. Keep up the good work!
I wouldn't worry about using tools in photoshop to help speed up and improve your workflow and art. Traditional art is a great place to shape up skills without any fancy tools and such.
Selamat Hari Raya, and nice selfportrait. Watch out for a few things though, the angle where you're facing in your render is different, i assume its not intentional? If so remember to keep watching out for proportions, not a bad effort at all. Try squinting when you look at reference (dont know if anyone mentioned this to you already), so you it's more obvious where the dark spots and lit areas are. Moar!
Hey Farshie, thank you for the greetings! Thanks for pointing out all the mistakes i did. When i look at it closely, i realise even the eyes are off. @_@ I'll do the squinting technique more next time.
Thanks for dropping by, appreciate it! Nice fruits, but wah lao, what happen to that girl in #51? She doesn't look too happy...
Poses are quite good, keep doing those, will improve if you keep it up. Don't get caught up in detailing individual parts , try to think of things in terms of structure.
So far so good, let's see what your next update brings...
