Great progress! Thanks for sharing all these pencil pages! It seems that you trained your eyes (and understanding of the drawn) hard. Drawing on the right side of your brain and a lot of discipline to finish the details. Keep on posting!
OmertA- Thank you, I will!
My57- Thank you! I'll try to update more regularly.
Kungfoowiz. Thanks! Where did you hear, or did you actually read my wall of text? ( I usually skip the text and go straight to the images lol)
timdegro- Thank you very much! I'm the one who needs a kick in the ass really!
surus- Many thanks! I haven't really put much thought into that until you mentioned it. I've heard about drawing with the right side of the brain, but I don't know much about it. I will!
Envodas- Thank you for the compliment! I don't hear that very often, but if that's the case i must have done something right.=D
hücumkedi- Many thanks, I agree I should definitely spend more time on anatomy!
I've been a little busy these past weeks. I had some relatives visiting so we went to the beach (a lot), off-roading, jet-skiing and basically being a little bit of a tourist on my own island. I don't really like the sun, even though it's the rainy season, it's still too much sun for me!
Like I mentioned last time I had a pretty hard time getting back into art, you can see that in the first image.
1.The horrible ones in red I drew first (prob in Oct 2010) I was not happy with them at all, I don't even really want to show them here, so I took one of my earlier drawings to use as ref for the pencil sketch in the middle. After that I kinda got my style of drawing back.
2.The second drawing I tried to draw my OC's (Nov-Dec 2010)
Scanning, resizing, uploading, commenting really takes a lot of time. I'll probably put more images when I'm done scanning them. But for now I'll just add these two.
I like your Mucha studies, they have lovely line weights. Also really like the digital portraits. Your work looks hotter and hotter with every post! And good to see I'm not only one that draws on cereal boxes
iCreate-Thank you! It was my intent to study my Mucha book cover to cover, still a long ways to go. Haha yes cereal boxes, I'll probably be doing more of those soon.
towy- Many thanks.
1.It's been a long time since I last used photoshop, in mid December I decided to do a photo study to compare it to the ones I did when I first started posting here. I used ref but made her look different, if I continue I'll probably fix that.
2.Before going back into Photoshop, I sketched some in PaintChat, I used to pchat a lot back when, it's really fun. Here's one of my sketches I made in Dec.
3. Thumbnail for a pastel portrait I did a couple of days ago. It's actually in color but it looks nicer in sepia. I'll be making more thumbs before the actual portrait.
try to draw the legs more, to get a full figure. i see lots of drawings where the legs are cut off. personally, i think it's a bad habit to not draw the full figure. also, try to draw the body more than the head all the time. the body is where the real work is.
and how do i stay inspired? i try to find something that is me; i gravitate towards personal expression. so for me, it can't look like anyone else's stuff.
