    hello friends!

    A colour study!! It's a Patrick Nagel study, I've liked his work for a couple of years now and I got a really hi-res piece off the net.
    The reason I chose this one is the pose, she's standing so I can get figure drawing and colour in one study. The downside with it is I spent around 10 hours on this (I think?). So I need to speed up.
    Here's the original http://tminx.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/nagel1.jpg

    And heres a little process bit for ya
    Attachment 1108931

    The next one will be a brown school study of some kind. Possibly Velazquez.

    Also some more figure drawing from imagination, the theme is office people.

    the Patrick Nagel's study is good, you got the shapes reading well
    footie study's looking great as well (reminds me of Michaelangelo's Pieta for some reason )
    your recent sketches and figures are looking much more improved- id still say that using some references can be helpful at times to avoid your imagination sketches from having too similar a pose at times, theyre still looking a bit stiff and have that 'idealised anatomy' look

    keep up the paintings, looking forward to see some oils and colours soon!

    Thank you Brandon, I've used ref for a recent character sketch in Photoshop, just for inspiration to get gesture, not directly copying. Works really well thanks.

    Aaaand my first Landscape (ever!) and proper colour study. Took 2 hours ~ I'm kinda pleased with it, but the foreground isn't too great.
    Attachment 1113160

    And this unoriginal scientist concept from imagination. Switching to photoshop for imaginative gestures from now on due to poor lighting.

    notice how you shade the transition between the nose and the eyebrows, the shaded area of the nose doesn't really connect with the eyebrows most of the time, and not in your lighting situation.
    also the eyes are too close

    Hey thanks for the crit Mark, but I'm having some trouble comprehending the first part of it. The primary light source is coming from her right, so the shadows are located on her left hand side, where there is no (or much weaker) light. Her facial structure is such that the light can't reach the left side of her nose, and is therefore in some shadow. Please do give examples of what you mean though.
    But yeah, I agree the eyes are too close >_<

    Update tiem. A 2 hour landscape, need to do more, get quicker.
    Attachment 1117973

    And a style study for this Star Wars comic. I personally think its good, I'm gonna use this style. Yes it is very similar to Patrick Nagels.
    Attachment 1117975

    Oh yes, is it better with or without the armour?

    landscapes! yay! great to see youre having alot of confidence tackling colour

    as for the character design, if youre introducing another colour into the pallette, i'd say the armoured version looks better

    Latest landscape is ace! Don't worry about speed too much, you'll get faster the more you do.

    Armour chick FTW.

    I think Vatsel is saying the shadow makes it look like the nose plane goes straight into the forehead, it kinda appears the plane at the top of the nose is missing?

    More landscapes on their way. Yes I totally see that adding an extra colour might help with bits of the clothing. I don't want the colour scheme to get too complex though.

    Vatsel
    Thanks, using this style puts more emotional emphasis on the subject, as in theory it leaves your mind to fill in the bits of detail. Suggestive in a way.

    Koto
    Thanks, but i wanna get fasterrr. I see what you're getting at with the loomis head, but that's also a man. Women (generalising heavily here) have less of a "dip" mid eyebrows. But anyway i dunno why i'm still defending that piece



    Finally finished this sculp after 3 goes, stretched over 3 months (took 9 hours?) :/

    Thought it'd be good to include the original photo.
