    study, study, study,... (19. april)

    I'm a freelance 3d artist/concept artist located in germany. the last years i spent a lot on learning know how and technic for doing animated features.. but i've always had a fable for drawing and paintin' .

    i would love to get some serious and honest CC about my stuff, and perhaps some tips to improve, or anything.


    Help me improve!

    hey thanks guys,

    the problem i currently have is, that my first sketches for those poses look pretty ugly. I need time and layers to work out overlapping and correct foreshortning.. if i try this on paper.. i can't get it to work like the upper drawings. dunno, if to go more for fast sketches.. or just learn and work out poses to digg everything and the rest will eventually come, even on paper?

    to better show, what i mean and how i work..

    heres a WIP layed out. i'm currently struggeling with a lean back postion, viewn from a bit deep under..which i thought should be easy, well hmm , this is just 5 minutes stuff.. i draw alot of this , but most time it directly goes to the dump, but i'm sure if i'll work more on this it'll get better..

    had to do some other stuff last week.. did some doodles on friday but turned out terribly..

    today and yesterday i switched back to painting and studied some photos for better understanding of light, shadow and color...

    the landscape i did today is from a foto reference, and done in about 3-4 hours.. the horse is some 2 weeks old, a painting for a girlfriend.. took about 20 hours..

    edited: "deleted a self monolgue, just found out, that drawing is so much fun for me, creativity and all.. one story that trembles me still is, that i for long kept studying from masters and copying stuff to understand is wrong.. but i was wrong. hehe.. "

    Burned up my scanning device begining of the week, the anatomy studies from bridgman, are all on paper. Maybe I can scan stuff later, when I'm going to my girl friends home. So heres just small digital things i did the last weeks .. I've been more onto speed things also.. but should also do some longer and not as fast "sketches" to really understand.. dunno...

    The only drawing thing studied on this following is the small thor marvel picture.. the Rest is from head.. as always.. until now :p

    The color stuff is all photo referenced. done in 40 minutes on timer to learn color better.

    note: zero sense for color, lighting, composition ...

    well, prolly do some more color studies and such.. than lighting, then compositioning... and besides all that, character stuff .. damn .. so much

    Hi

    I really like your traditional and digital stuff, its seldom you find someone who is at the same level with both.
    Some nitpicks for you to learn form:
    On the last one a lot more red of the sky should reflect in the guys armor and try adding more drama with a cape perhaps?
    I love the armor study. I should do one of those.
    I really like your enviros, but I would suggest adding subtle unusal colurs you wouldn't think about first. That will add a lot to the realism. Try studying form fotos on the internet.

    Keep going... I'm subscribed now!^^

    Cheers

    oh big thx janos.. i showed this thing to a friend today and he told me that I'd really need to go more into photo studies again. Do 100s and then try and come back to painting color from imagination.

    Then I'd have a problem less and could focus more on lighting and compostion. Well guess he's right. As for today I struggled long time, how i'd form out the Armor. But whats the deal, when the whole coloring isn't fitting in the end end else..

    Sure, It isn't bad.. but i want to get good but i don't know yet if i want to got for drawing or painting i like both. And I'm attracted by creating characters... which i did only 3d the last years with some 2-3 hour sketching before



    Zeus & Jonas: I think i could struggle through this warrior thing, but as I got told, stop and study .. then come back.. will follow this..

    kay back to colors, and the last for today.. 20 minutes just focusing on color..

    also figure my samsung 226bw is very bad for painting,.. viewing angle is a horror .. have to tilt up and down with the head to percieve and guess every color from the picture.. and than the face looks completly different..

    should get some money and buy a new one...
