My57: A pat on the ass: Cheers
jatherip: Thanks..i think my designs are kinda weak not something I've focused on enough
jordyskateboardy: Thaaannkkss. In the bigger picture, I am still a complete noob
Chaser226: Thanks, I've been way too lazy on that
Walid D: Eeek i forgot about the edges D: Thanks
walnut: I did pick sometimes to check values, but i mainly just found the colours through trial and error on the colour i wanted on the photo until they matched. I find colour picker is usually wrong with colours anyways.
Err seriously need more crits guys. I'm thinking I should focus on colours, hands, feet, proportions, and design at the mo?
Some bridgeman, some photos, I realised I sometimes make heads way too small Attachment 686864
Some longer posemaniacs because it's been a while Attachment 686867
Some proportions studies, 8 heads seems way too long? or did i do it wrong. I kinda fucked up around the pelvis-leg area here D: Attachment 686869
Quick quick colour study Attachment 686868
Critz critz, well since you asked for them.
Really watch out for the proportions with everything you do, do a basic invisible sketch just to get a feel for the subject and then go on to the actual drawing.
Also work on the rendering some more, some of it looks a little bit scratchy right now.
Good pose maniacs
In the last post, the ears on the fella' for your patterns project are too small. I'm sure you already know this, but the ears generally go from the brow ridge, to the bottom of the nose. And I know they're pushed back a little, 'cuz it's a front shot or w/e, but I still can't help but think they're a little too small, still.
That medic looks pretty sick. I like the bust of him, mostly. But his face seems a little short (I don't even know if that makes sense). It looks like for the full body you were just trying to throw down his costume, so I'm not going to bother critiquing that.
Meissner:Yeah very true indeed, i was trying to make the ears match by filling in more black to mould the shape so after a while they kinda shrank, a black is a bitch to rub out I also totally get what you're saying about the short face. Nice crits, lovely
Earlier I got really depressed and impatient about this painting, then annoyed. But I've cooled off a bit now. The reasons it isn't working is because the colours weren't thought through, nor the background, I didn't think about structure and went straight to value and lastly the design is way too basic (she's dressed like a prostitute.) I need to work on my studies more, especially skin tones I think, and also gathering a bit of reference now and then in these paintings would be very helpful. Attachment 688548
Giorge: Was sortof meant to be a guy but i see how it can be seen as a chick haha, pretty unisex character
WIP, need help with the tones for the face. I want variation but I'm not sure how. This is something I'll probably come back to after study. Attachment 689408
Still life with lines and then some colours underneath. Yellow plastic is haarrrdddd Attachment 689409
Craz: I hear you about the red, that's what sucks about overlays. Not so sure about bounce light on the head scarf, it's a fairly flat object so it probably wouldn't occur. Unless you can prove me wrong?
Going to try and do a skin tone study everyday. Whether it's a straight to colour SP or a nude photo study I don't care, but this scares the shit out of me and I need to get over it.
This took me like 5 hours to paint. It didn't really help that I tried having two light sources either side. The colours suck and the face came out kinda weird. But hey, what did I expect on my first go. Give it two months and we'll compare...and hopefully I'll speed up as well, 5 hours is a long time. I actually filmed this but the file was too big to speed up Attachment 690322
Some nude study of a hot chick Attachment 690323
Loving the sketchbook! Lot's of great stuff you've got going on here.
Im really impressed that you're doing a little something every day .. it definitely does help with improving upon various techniques and skills!
I can't really think of any crits to give, other than what's been mentioned.
Im just really loving the rate of improvement that you're at
Keep it going!
You're probably right; I just looked at the head-scarf and quickly assumed it had a certain thickness to it or was off the forehead at the bottom, in which case I think there would be some bounced light right beneath it. Or maybe not.
Could you break the file into smaller files and speed them up?
Is the bottom-right chick Heather Graham?
Craz: Nah it was all meant to be the same chick, some model called Karlie Montana. I googled Heather Graham, scary resemblance to that face haha.
Imagination stuff, although all the armours are referenced Attachment 691016
SP..the bright values need to be brighter and more yellowy biege, this took me like 2 hours probably. I look really angry in this lol Attachment 691017
fuck you man the sp looks really great ! just be carreful about the edges, it's really better than the last time, but there are still little mistakes, anyway, you have beautiful eyes :p Keep working dude ! you're a big inspiration !
Jens: Thanks, I think I pointed the values out. And I know, but I don't have 5 hours to spare every night.
Craz: Was meant to be bounced, but too bright
Walid D: Need to work the edges more D: Thanks
The7Artist7: Cheers buddy
hey man those SPs are looking really good on this last one the only thing that grabs me is what ever
way you are using the brush there it makes the skin look a little glassy , maybe its just that hard reflection on the nose though
i would do some more still life too it never hurts ^ ^
thanks for dropin by my SB again ...the Demo for the game is being released soon
so i can just post the link there when its done = )
SP about 3-4 hours. Edges are really interesting things to play with, too bad I can't use them for shit. Colour choices are still pretty poor. Just needs time I guess Also, excuse me looking like a fat maniac in this. And I forgot ears, ran out of time
EDIT: Ohh yeah. Got an Intuos 4. Pretty smexy. Speeds things up and it has like 4 times the amount of pressure level than my old shitty tablet.
