    Faust

    Hope this will finally keep me away from games... I rarely did SPs in the past, maybe because other people are prettier, dunno.

    Copycat!

    But these are great, and I'm sure you'll progress a lot if you keep on doing these regularly

    Nice variety of colors used. You should try some other mediums as well.
    Really like the shading work on the last pencil. It would be nice to see more detailed work from the digital ones.

    Thanks guys lol

    Time to really get started now. SPs are the hardest thing for me and not only because my face is kind of difficult structure-wise.

    Definitely keep practicing the construction it'll help with proportions! Maybe combine what you did today, and push a little further on your next one.

    Thanks man! Yeah analysing and constructing sure gives me a few pointers on here things go rong I'll be much more rigid for the ongoing ones.

    Doing today's after a bargue-drawing. It's really hard to simplify the forms to fit the theme espescially hair! I will do this again tomorrow I think, great exercise!

    Woooow Bargue style is awesome, I wanted to do that too but now you beat me to it. But that one's digital, right? =_0
    Anyways, your construction is really solid! Keep doing these! \°_°/

    Haha yeah bargue is pretty cool, although in the simplification-process the likeness can easily get lost. Careful!

    Anyway, today's turned out a bit better (Considering the hair), But I think I wll do more painting, I need brushstroke-practice.

    Daym! Looking good. Not sure about the values on the upper right lip (your right). Not sure about the entire lip area, I can't put my finger on it...

    Low light's always interesting to do SP's in.

    Thanks man! Although the last one really was a fuckup. I had it all in pretty crazy colors but then I turned it grayscale to check for values without saving it first. Sine I have no undo-function I had to recolor it entirely. Ddn't work out

    Anyways. after a frustrating day at the academy where all the exercises backfired at me I at least put some effort into my skintones before calling it quits for today...

    @Leysan: Thanks! I was aiming for it and it's good to hear that a study paid off

    @ algenpfleger: hehe, I really have mixed feelings about Lindas art, she is technically perfect and her skintones are masterful. Although I don't like her subject matter that much (With very few exceptions like this stylized faerie pic. That is pure awesome), too much gothic-pinup for me. Also, I prefer art where the strokes are more visible, Lindas art is a tad too fine in some places,.

    @Galaxis: hehe, I know she uses whatever the lighting demands. Turquoise also happens to be my favourite colour . There is no skin-tone-color, you can paint any surface and material with any color you want just make it fit somehow.

    If only 16 oct's portrait has some fur and some fangs, you will be like a werewolf

    Yeah I prefer art with brushstroke visible too

    Haha, then you nshould check out her sketch thread! http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthre...?f=31&t=301385
    But of course I agree with you, fairies aren't my thing either. But you know what Confucius said, "If I travel along with others they may serve me as teacher, I'll select their good qualities and learn from them, and recognize their bad qualities and avoid them." Not that something as personal as the favorite choice of subjects would qualify as a "bad quality", but you know what I mean

    Oh and I see you recognized exactly what makes skintones Everything actually, it's just the light that makes the form visible.

    Loving these latest ones man, keep pushing!

    Hey Hannes, thanks for the link, although the images are not that recent. Don't get me wrong, Linda is awesome, simply put, I enjoy looking at her art, it's just not something I want to do myself
