Yesterday I made some photos of my beautiful body and today I chose one that i wanted to paint. I don't have anyone who would like to sit for me for few hours, so I have to take that role on my own. I'll post just one, but at the moment Im struggling with another piece from photography, which i will hopefully post tommorow. DOne in PS
If you are thinking of EMO style, i am not! Its caused by lack of painting skills
And here is the second i told you about. Brand new (photo ref. - photoshop)
Finished at the moment
I don't say that the composition and my technique is ok, but i like the color mood of original photo
This is my brother. He just had a little dinner
nice work, great lighting going on. I like how you have completely different skincolors for your brother, keeps it fresh.
I saw some digi paintings of apples on the forum and i noticed that my palette has much more colors... Is that right or wrong???
There is something silly on these 2 apples, but what
Another piece from observation. I still can't get colors. I didn't refine the armchair, that's what i want to paint tommorow. PLEASE CRITIQUE
my too muscular arm with breast. from tricky photo. i like it, do you?
here comes my favourite father. He works hard
dirty lonely rusty garden tool. it whole looks somehow flat
and next time i will not use those sketchlike black lines. it doesn't fit
i put a mirror on the wall and i saw a leg. here is the result. took about 1 hour, maybe little more. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT IT
good stuff so far
you can definately draw pretty well
try using a bigger brush when you painting
gets rid of all the scratchy strokes
keep doing what your doing
Thank you hunchbackmagee. As you recommended, i used bigger brushes this time. But with photo ref. Bite me
Hey man, thanks for checking out my sketchbook.
Things in here are looking really good. Man, if only I can digital like you. Could I see some sketches though? xD
the last one looks much better keep it up
alchemy is a free drawing program
if you want it you have to sign up for there newsletter
just copy the files to your computer and you should be able to draw xD
mirror mode is addictive, i warn you now
thanks for dropping by the sketchbook
It's been over one week that i posted last time. I've done few pencil drawings, but mostly they didn't took more than 20 min. Maybe i will start scanning, i just have to start up my scanner. Today I only finished this digital painting from ref. Tommorow (I mean today, it's 0:17 ) I must work more!!! hunchback, I got the Alchemy. What a nimble program. i'll show some alchemy stuff soon
I love the way you render skin and how everything looks like it was done in oils! Beautiful traditional subjects made in a digital manner. One thing though - try to use less puffier brushes; vary them a little Wanna see more soon! Cheers!
Thank you Timmy. Sadly, I have almost no skills in traditional painting. I will begin with gouache. About the brushes, i use mostly Chalk brush with pressure sensitivity on, and sometimes airbrush pen opacity flow(don't know if the name is correct). I downloaded Corel Painter and the brush selection there is awesome. Here is another apple. Good practise i think
More digital anatomy study
nice studies, just do them rather in pencil or so, because before you master digital meidum, you should understand traditional...
jestli to s malovanim myslis vazne, tak zacni kreslit nazivo, ne podle fotky, na zivo ti to pomuze neporovnatelne vic... zacni chodit na figurálku a dělej zátiší tužkou nebo uhlem a tak...
jen tak dál každopádně.....
good stuff so far man, u definately understand the basics, i.e light, shade, colour, value and form so thats the hard part out the way, leaving u with the fun part expanding ur imagination and improving ur painting skill, which i see is improving aswell, good work mate keep it up, also try out environments, something new and fresh.
