    100 Character Sketch Contest Part 12

    ...continued from previous post.

    This is where they start getting a bit bad on account of I was running out of time on the contest. Had to finish what I could.

    These 100 character sketches were done for a contest. The rules of which were to come up with 100 character designs and spend no longer than an hour on each one. Judging was based upon improvement and number of sketches completed.

    And here they are in order of completion.

    (NOTE: I will be uploading these 5 at a time due to an uploading error that happened when I did all 100 on one post.)

    Digital Still Life

    A couple of digital still life paintings done in Painter X using the Artist's Oils brush set.

    Figured I should start doing these more often. I'm terribly lacking in my knowledge of color.

    For the first one, I used a photo reference. For the second one, I just placed a Coke can near me.

    Portrait Practice

    A couple of portraits done in Painter X.

    Photo references were used.

    For the second one, I had loosened up a bit and used less airbrush and more pastel and charcoal brushes.

    hey man, I'd steer clear of the soft airbrush for a while, you're shapes are pretty soft and fluffy and I think it'd be good for you to solidify things to solid shapes before going into blending or softening stuff too much.

    Good studies though, keep it up !

    Digital Self-Portrait

    Another digital self-portrait.

    Ditched the airbush (as requested) and worked with a relatively limited palette (compared to what I'm used to doing which is pick colors from everywhere, haha!)

    Used the artist's oils brushes.

    I know it's crap, but it was the best one I did today (YUCK). Sorry for offending everyone with this image, hahaha.

    Any tips would be helpful. I already have the basic tips memorized..."draw more," "paint more." Haha.

    Digital Self-Portrait

    Another digital self-portrait.

    Tried to stick to two main colors and work off of different shades of them.

    Once again, ditched the airbrush and used square chalk brushes and a blender here and there. Worked a bit more on the initial sketch too, this time.

    More of a caricature, haha.

    Color Exercise

    Just a little color exercise I did after watching a user on here's video of color theory and such. On this website he goes by the name MarcoBucci.

    As you all know, I'm terribly lacking in my knowledge of color theory. In high school as well as in the little Junior College I go to we're all given a very quick sort-of once over with it in the sense "Here's the color wheel, here's the opposites, go paint." and never taught anything else about it.

    So, forgive the painting, hahaha!

    (once again, ditched the airbrush as requested)

    Thumbnails

    Just some quickie thumbnail images I did trying to utilize a method used by the guy in the previously mentioned post.

    Man, I need to practice this stuff more often. Doing the thumbnails helps a little bit.

    Trying three different color schemes.

    More thumbnails

    More thumbnail sketches.

    The first one was a bit rusty, but the second one went much better.

    Thanks Marco Bucci for the awesome demonstrations! These little thumbnails are helping me a lot!

    Here's a link to one of his outstanding videos that inspired me to start doing these little thumbnails.

    More thumbnails!

    More thumbnails! And a self-portrait done in acrylics. Unfinished, but it was for fun. I'm not really planning on finishing it.

    Hey,

    cool sketchbook. I really like the last couple of thumbnails.

    You should do more still-lifes !

    keep it up!

    Just another Journey...

    Sketch and Scribbles

    @ N E X T: Thanks, man! I'll definitely take your advice. My painting class starts up again on the 24th of this month and I definitely plan on doing them often. One of our assignments in the class is to do these things called "quick paintings." The instructor recommends that they take anywhere between a minute to an hour, but no more. I think I'll plan on doing the still life paintings as them and as often as possible. Hopefully, I can do one daily. That'd be nice. It'd also help with the whole color theory and light recognition problems I have.

    Anyway, back to this.

    Gone for a couple of days. Nowhere special. Just lost myself in a long book. Just finished the "The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass." That one was quite a bit hard to get through compared to the first three, but I still enjoyed it. Moving onto "The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla." Hope that moves faster than the last one, whew!

    Anywho, here's a rough sketch and a few scribbles.

    SKETCH 1: This is just a sketch I did to help me come up with some ideas for this coming semester's painting class. Gotta get some of my ideas down on paper before class starts. From what I've heard, there's going to be quite a competitive group this semester. Finally, jeez. I swear, last semester everyone except maybe three or four people out of the 20 waited until the last minute to do their paintings. That did make the semester a bit easy on the ego, not that it really mattered due to the already dwindling amount of pride I've always had. Nothing to crush when you don't have any, hahaha!

    Anyway, here's a sketch that I might do as a traditional piece when the semester starts. I tend to incorporate collage and physical elements into my work, so the outer edges of this painting (the frame) may be made up of chains and wood and hinges. Junk like that.

    FIGURE SCRIBBLES: And here are some little scribbles done while visiting PoseManiacs.com.

    I always find that what's cool about posemaniacs is just the seemingly infinite amount of poses and awkward angles you can try to draw, haha!

    Cool sketchbook, lot of work here.
    Try to avoid totally black backgrounds, it is making loose part of your figures. Maybe neutral grey backgrounds could work better for you.
    Keep doing this anatomy studies and try with more dynamic poses.
    You´re doing good, keep practicing!

    @ Ricardo Robles: Thanks, man!

    Yeah, those strictly black/white character designs that start on about page 5 or so, believe me, I hate them just as much as everyone else, hahahaha! Started running out of time for this contest that I thought I was getting $100 for winning and had to speed up and do a crap-ton of...well...crap.
