    Been reading a lot of stuff lately about value and portraits and decided to play around. I'm going to try to ultimately make this a super-rendered portrait.

    Shaak Ti from the Star Wars franchise. I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a kid, and Shaak Ti and Aayla Secura were always my favorites, so here she is so far.

    About 15 minutes in so far. I think her eyes are super-off.. should probably fix that.

    It's definitely an ambitious goal, but I'm hoping that a lot of work and determination will get me there eventually. I'm completely dedicated to succeeding as an artist, so I'll find a way to do it.

    I guess it takes us a few years of doing something we hate to realize just how much we need to do what we love, haha.

    Steps 2 and 3. Taking progress shots ever 15 minutes. Sooo.. 45 mins now, I think. I know it doesn't look like 45 mins worth, but I keep flipping the canvas and re-working the facial structure.

    Hey Chachia, Your digital paintings looks good. For the last one, values are great, and I love the lips. Maybe you've intentionnaly made that, but I find that distance between eyes is a bit big. You are working fast, or I work very slowly , but painting that in 45 minutes, wow. Keep it up man !!

    Yeah, I noticed that when I was doing the sides of the nose on the latest segment. I'm gonna move em around when I pick it up after dinner.

    And thanks! I'm having fun exaggerating the lips, and values are something I've needed to work on quite a bit, so I'm glad I'm getting better at them.

    Keyboard on the laptop at home crapped out due to careless coffee spilling. So future posts for a while shall be textless since I can't copy/paste entire sentences letter by letter like I can for my login/password. =P I'll respond to comments and edit in descriptions whenever I'm here at the library between posts.

    Nyyyyyygh. Scratch that, apparently the coffee spill got sucked up by the fan and my laptop has officially not just bitten the dust, but completely deepthroated it. Looks like I'm sticking to pencils for a while. Will be switching to weekly sketch updates on Mondays.

    study some facial proportions work for a bit
    on your first portrait it is excellently styalized but not very accurate proportion wise
    for example the nose is too long, the lips arent wide enough, ears are tiny, and the eye shape is off
    neither one of those things are very bad, but all of them together make for an unrealistic portrait. I dont mean to be harsh, just sincere
    your environment work is very nice and your last portrait looks much nicer over all
    so keep up the good work and stop by sometime

    Yeah, I picked up a book last night on classical portrait techniques since I'm only able to use traditional media for a few weeks (or months, who knows). Putting down the tablet and getting back to the basics for a while will be good for me.

    No worries about being too harsh! When it comes to seeking improvement, there's no such thing as criticism too harsh. That fact that you took the time to actually look and notice those things, as well as comment on them, is very much appreciated.

    Just ordered a shiny new Macbook Pro. It's my first Mac, so I'm excited. However, it won't be here til the 5th, so until then you'll have to deal with my library-scanned random studies.

    Working on speed, so I tried to keep the faces under 3 minutes.



    Will probably post more of these later today when I'm finished with my rounds of anatomy sketches.

    loving your stuff so far. Your story is quite similar to mine, I also studied science until I realized what I wanted was just making art, I'm 22... I'd also love to one day get to de CA Atelier, but you're quite ahead of me to be honest.

    I know this comment wont help you at all, but anyway...

    Just a few doodles done this morning while I'm on a break from school and have access to a scanner. Graduation is in 2 weeks, so once finals are over I can really crack down and focus on art and getting a good portfolio together to finally submit to the CA Atelier.

    Please forgive the scan quality.

    dude youve improved a heckovvalot since you started this SB, and in such short a time, too! you had some funky proportion/placement issues when it came to faces, but it looks like youve sorted that out with your latest offerings. all the best with getting into the atelier!

    Thanks, stoph! I follow your sketchbook pretty regularly, so I'm happy to see you comment here. It's always great to get feedback from artists I admire.

    I'll hopefully be able to submit a decent portfolio in a couple of months. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed til then.

    You are improving quite fast indeed. I especially like post #21 and the bw face, the distance between the eyes is a bit over the average but not enough to make her looking weird (on the contrary sometime this creates a peculiar visage that makes a woman beautiful).
    Have you attended art school or are you self-taught?


    P.S. Are you Italian? Come to the Italian Local Artist Thread! There is quite nothing actually but that's a place to exchange info about (few) news and events in Italy...

    Thank you, reve! I'm self taught. I didn't take much of an interest in art until late in high school, so when it came time to pick a college, my parents were of the, "Pre-med science degree or pay for it yourself" mentality. So after four years and a Biochem degree (graduating in two weeks, whoohoo), I'm finally biting the bullet and pursuing art anyways.

    I just bookmarked the thread! Thanks for linking me, I didn't know there was an Italian artists thread.

    Also added the compiled version of what I got done of Shaak Ti into a step-by-step and added it to the first post. I will try to finish it whenever I get a harddrive enclosure and can get the file onto this computer.

    Thank you! I'll do more color studies and such as soon as I get back home and back to my tablet. Right now I'm chained to my sketchbook; not necessarily a bad thing.

    Unbreakable: Yeah, I have been doing a lot of timed anatomy drawings so I tend to skimp on the hands and feet. That or I draw them, get aggravated, and then erase them. XD I will make sure to put hands and feet in some of them from now on.

    Ekler: Thanks! I will definitely keep pushing myself.

    Nice stuff, I've been meaning to draw some vagina too.

    I like your lines but I would only say that you could think a little about line widths and where to pull the form forwards and back using that line weight.

    Bio Chem too? damn.. =D

    Aph: Can never draw too much vagina, man. The reference sites are just full of it.

    The Biochem major is just a diversion from what I'm really suppose to be doing. Hopefully after a while it won't be something I have to think about anymore. But it's good for a day job for saving money so I can one day move out to Cali.

    I will try to experiment with line weights more. I hadn't even really thought about it, thanks for mentioning it!
