"painter photoref study messed with"
thx for the comment but for now i wanna learn and masters make for great teachers.
now 2 studies. nothing special but i haven´t done such things before.
not really nailed the likeness.
found that shot of a female all painted golden.
tried to do the opposite of that portrait before (limited values, big brush)
no ref lightning studies with 3 values and big brush, to keep it as simple as possible. uhm it´s not! ... for me...
additionally i´m still not all that down with handling the tablet
no ref stuff for me to see where my knowledge ends
looks stupid but i´m not getting any further with it atm.
whithout marko i wouldn´t have done something like it yet.
so kudos to him!
Ahh, I remember this one from Markos WS. Looks good! You should add some highlights at his head, shoulder, perhaps a small one at his blade too. :chug:
thx robby! yeah i think i´ll work on it some more soon. i just feel i need to do something different now.
what´s up with your sketchbook? hehe
i remember that one too. i liked your scetch of it a bit more, but that might be because it isn't finished yet.
i like your scetchbook! their are a lot of usefull training-studies in it. i'll try that lightning-thing with only 3 values, too. good idea to get a basic understanding of lights and shadows!
keep it up! :chug:
hey the comment is much appreciated! yeah try some of those studies.
well yesterday i doodled this together...
i´ll do better ones asap
Good studies! You keep improving!!! :chug:
the freaky alien from nov 7th is good! the lighting works well and it gives it a nive 3D feeling. the BG is a bit to empty...
keep it up!
thx rob n´rob :p
i´m not pleased with the outcome given how long i worked especially on the second one.
the biggest problem was that the paper was so damn textured, that even with a staedtler-EE pencil there was no way to get real dark yet smooth areas.
lol they look like dirty ass thumbnails tho i worked in A3....
always loved that ink drawing by uncle frank.
Are You Related TO FRANK, Oh MY GOD!!!
haha nope but ever since i´ve read...
"While growing up on Long Island, I guess I was
around ten or eleven years old, my cousin Ellie
and her husband Frank would often visit us to
enjoy the pool and a fun backyard barbecue.
They would bring their children for us to play
with while they lounged. The one thing that
caught my eye was Uncle Frank, as I called
him, reclining with a large pad on his lap
drawing away, always while chatting with the
other adults. I would find myself frequently
looking over his shoulder only to find that
what he was drawing with no reference was,
Al Capp’s syndicated newspaper
column, ”Little Abner.” Little did I know the
influence he would have in my life in less
than a decade. To this I say, ”Thanks for
being there Frank Frazetta.” "
...a short bio of ken kelly i can´t help but think of "uncle frank"
um...it seems your doubting your skill. YOU HAVE GOOD TALENT
Da Vinci was a concept artist
11/30/03-11/30/05. Thanks CA, for all the great inspiration. When will I update? I dont know...
thx opid619 i´d really appreciate to have some more of it!
sooooo here we go with an chronologically ordered excerpt of what i´ve done over the last 2 weeks. without ref.
fitst two were done on a train so forgive the sHaKeYnEsS
some of them looked much better before i stared to mess them up by totally uninspired toying around
Hi Dan, very good Update my friend!
Your knowledge of anatomy is getting better and better. The face on the first page and bs004 are the best of them. Be careful with your proportions (length of the arms etc,) and the balance between the left and the right side of the body.
On with the show!
thx! well i wasn´t all that concerned about heads in these, but the next update will be some nice´n proper ones.
