Hi, you have some real progress going on here. I took the time to look through the thread from start to finish. and you can really tell the difference. I'd like to point something out though. A lot of your poses looks really stiff. As if the they are trying to strech their legs out to the max.
The last update i find very dynamic. However i'm kinda puzzled about the foot. I get the feeling it's her right leg(i might be wrong) and it looks like she has a left foot instead of a right foot.
I would really suggest a life drawing class do one for a year and you will notice the improvement is massive. Its easier said than done but at the moment it looks like your observation could be better, look at the subject more than your sheet of paper ( abit of a cliche I know). good luck getting to 1001
NicG: No problem towy: Thanks man! I´m trying a few new aproaches to my paintings, and finally I feel like I´m going forward again. With the anatomy, its a long and hard way for me, but I´m trying to get there. Darkside: Thanks, just the thing I wanted to hear! I´m gonna do more detailed studies from now on then. W1r3d: Thanks for taking the time, I appreciate that! Yeah, I also noticed the foot is weird somehow, but since it was really quick painting aimed at the movement (or as you say, I´m trying really hard to show some action, loose the stiffness), I didn´t really feel like correcting it. But thats just my lazyness, I´m the worst . hedwordup: Yeah I know, the most comes from real life experience with the subject. Sadly I´m just not in the situation to make it to the life drawing class on the regular basis, but I´m trying to compensate that by scribbling in the buses, and on the street. Yeah and I should definitely get back on the PM´s 1001 poses! DStraX: I´ll watch for it! Thanks for commenting.
Oh my god, the Attachement editor is pain in the ass.
Here we go:
1) Some unfinished caricatures of few of my friends. Trying diffirent style, diffirent aproach. Its also somewhat longer project, because I want to do roughly 60 of these (read, all my closer friends and including myself), and then making it into the poster, which I´ll offer them.
2) Sargent study, hour and half.
3) Another concept for my comic, this time in color, yay!
4) A painting of one of my friends.
5) Lets say I have a soft spot for her... so, I did one more.
HerrleerzeichenS: Thanks man! I almost forgot what is my biggest love in the world, but now I´m back! I´ll find all the scribbles I did in the past two months and I´ll update them here as quickly as possible. God, I am such a douche. Lets work.
miycko: Thanks alot! Yeah, the Supercute CHOW was really fun. Oh, the cars are... really complicated. I always liked the idea of doing something close to a Mad Max, post nuclear / fuel injected comic, bud damn, cars are pain in the ass. I should do more studies of ´em.
007-r0b3r7: Thanks mate! I´ll see what I can do with the speedpaints. I have really big holes in the knowledge of practically everything in the process and I try as hard as I can to fill them out and eventually to keep up with all those beautifull characters and landscapes I see all around me on CA.
Thank you all for support you´re giving me, I´ll try to use all that positive energy to learn more and more.
This is a painting I´m doing for Starving Moth´sFight for Eternity, a web based strategy game. There will be plenty of your classic fantasy guys and gals with swords and other hacking and slashing instruments. Right now I´m trying to establish a design style, so this is something more of a teaser than anything else. I´ll be back soon with more updates.
Failed. Out of proportion, so it doesn´t resemble the person.
I´ve done worse, but still, I need to focus on this in my learning process.
Weird thing is that sometimes I draw all day and I have no problems with proportions and other day I fuck up portraits of people I know for years.
Does this happen to professionals, or am I just so lame I can´t trust my (already lame enough) skill?
