Yo, nice to see you updating again! Really nice sketching! That environment feels really dynamic. The acrylic painting looks nice, but her skin looks a bit too yellow, may be because of the photo.
Keep it up my friend!
Movenski: 1. From my figure drawing class, the instructor always instructed us to establish a horizontal axis, dividing the paper in half. This is usually where the torso lies. Problem is that I might draw larger than expected, thus trying to forcefully "feature" everything in the paper. Later on I learned to just cut/shave some parts off the top and bottom if needed. As for starting point for my gestures, I used to tend to start from the head and sometimes torso. My instructor on the other hand, advised us to start from the bottom up just for a change, which helped immensely. 2.Thanks! Zeus12:definitely will, thanks for your encouragement! Mumph: Yeah, I swear I have bad luck with photography...but in reality her skin is more orange-ish.
I think I might have made some progress digitally...thanks to watching Mr. Jack's speed painting video. following is the results of watching...speed paint!
I think the colors are very flat on that first girl, some more variation is needed. Also the edges are very sharp, again I think some variation between soft and hard edges works better. It feels like she is balancing on her knees, maybe it´s because of the angle of the hip.
The speedpaint is really nice. Something strange going on with HER left leg though. I like the ad! I think you should clean up the lines and color it, would make a nice illustration.
Keep it up!
