Jesus Food: Haha, donīt be sad, heīs not Noukah: Tack så mycket! I will. LAL: Thanks for the kind words. Knarf: Thank you man. Yes, I will do my best
A pretty quick study from reference (Alica Keys). Iīm currently reading Imaginative Realism by James Gurney and itīs awesome. I highly recommend it! Iīm also doing perspective studies from Perspective made easy by Ernest R. Norling. Iīm also working on a landscape painting for a competition over at sketchoholic. Check it out!
Knarf: Yes, I didnīt really capture her likeness. Thanks man. eminkey2003: I will think about that. Thank you.
I did another Alicia Keys portrait. This time I cheated by printing her face in lines on the paper very thin first, the eyes, nose and mouth anyway I wanted to focus on rendering. And an Assasins creed "fan art" done some time ago.
Really great form on these new faces! The green one is especially nice. The Altair and black and white girl have a bit of wonkiness in the positioning and size of the facial elements, but are major improvements from your past work.
eminkey2003: Thanks man! The likesness in that one is probably because I cheated, as I said in the last post It was more of a rendering exercise. Gorgoleon: Tackar, tackar BRINKMAN!: Thanks, yeah that one wasnīt very successful when it comes to likeness.
A self portrait below, that I didnīt finish. Lately iīve been mostly doing perspective studies and I also bought the discovery foundation and painting weeks, so I have been looking at that too. Great stuff!
eminkey2003: Thanks, just need to finish the stuff too
These are some of the assignments I did for a school application:
1: Draw your kitchen with a pot on the stove and a person standing by it.
2: Still life (with the specific objects you see in the picture)
3: How to cook mashed potatoes (only images)
4: Two people carrying a table (all legs visible)
Knarf: Thank you Sir Gorgoleon: Tack tack! Mister Dark: Thanks and I agree about the light, but then again, you are Mister Dark Ivan Turcin: Thatīs nice to hear, thanks. I will try to work harder eminkey2003: Cool! because we were supposed to show how we handled different material in that assignment, so itīs nice that it looks ok I was afraid of doing the metal. BRINKMAN!: Thank you man! I think the step-by-step was the one that was most fun to do.
Iīve been working on my perspective skills and so I donīt have anything particulary fun to show but I did some goofy silhouettes that I will post.
Ivan Turcin: Thanks man! Haha, yeah it would be cool if I knew how to do it. Thereīs so much to learn eminkey2003: Yes, I will keep that in mind, normally I think I focus too much on the character and donīt really think about the pose/gesture.
Thatīs an interesting theory. But I think that even a "boring" object with not a lot of variation can be made interesting depending on what viewpoint you have (see attached picture 3).
I just thought iīd show some of the stuff iīve been struggling with the past weeks. I finished Perspective made easy and I also have watched and followed Carl Dobskys video downloads. After I watched each video I tried to do it on my own and add something (perhaps draw it from another angle or change measurements and viewpoint).
Whew, those perspective studies are a doozy. Looks like the still life make good applications of it. Maybe you should try with a figure next.
Yeah, about the theory-- it seems you've proved it! Heh, that table is pretty solid at first, but when you add a perspective that makes the shape look more varied in its 2D silhouette, it looks more interesting. Anyway, that's neat.
Heres a dude I know who does a lot of strange perspectives: Robert Valley (NSFW).
eminkey2003: Haha, yeah I guess. But if itīs the exact same silhuette but rotated? I guess it comes down to the structure behind the painting. Stapleton Kearns actually posted about this in his blog. Itīs an interesting read.
Awesome link,I really enjoyed his work! Bookmarked.
Gorgoleon: Thanks man! Haha, itīs actually pretty basic stuff. Carl Dobsky is great at making you understand. eminkey2003: Thank you! I had that in mind when making the silhouettes.
These are some of the assignments for another school application I have been stuggeling with the last couple of weeks or so.
1: Design a poster for "Alfred Nobel: Networks of innovaion". Itīs done in soft pastels.
2: Show in a series of picture a time when you showed courage (the text is swedish and it rhymes )
3: Make a graphic image of a memory from when you were a child. Itīs a collage.
