Hey there, you have good amount of knowledge in the traditional media, simply try to apply those to your digitals, they still need alot of wwork.
But it's always easier to learn working digitally when you have the general knowledge in drawing, painting than the other way
BlackDelphin: Thanks for stopping by! I will keep in mind the desaturation/saturation of my darks and lights.
Icecold: I'll keep working on the digitals thanks!
Lateman: I'll keep it up! Thanks man!
I'm currently working on some larger projects and want to wait until completion to post them but in the mean time here is a sexy digital painting dedicated to the under-boob. I enjoy experimenting with layers and colors on the piece and got some interesting effects on the skin. I also have been trying to make fun backgrounds to paint on. This one is several layers of old daguerreotypes.
Here are two main character designs. They are two characters that I enjoy drawing a lot so you might see them in various forms over previous posts and in the future. I've been trying to nail down their body type, design and overall mood over time and I feel I'm getting closer with every drawing. Any feedback on the initial design and coloring are appreciated.
It helps me to switch back and forth from digital to traditional medium to stay fresh. Here is some portraiture I've finished recently. They are both oil on canvas. I used multiple references to compose each one. The anatomy on the second one is slightly off now that I look at the image, but unfortunately the painting is not in my possession anymore.
Here is a quick illustration and some logo designs I did while trying to teach myself Corel draw. Vector graphics are kind of interesting to me. The studies are screen shots from the movie Citizen Kane.
Since I need to study the figure more here is the first 100 thirty second gesture drawings. Yay go practice! Still messing around with alchemy to get some interesting shapes, and a pin up that took about 6 hours.
Hey there Ninjac.
I've seen your message in the sketchbook support group thread and I was wondering if you wanted to create a sketch group with me and some other people (it would be cool to have Nkristian).
I know I'm far from being a good drawer or painter yet, but I have decided to dedicate my life to painting and promised my self to get better fast and progress everyday.So I think that would have advantages to everyone.
I'll talk to Nkristian now. If your interested say something
I probably wont be too active for the next two months but ill try and leave regular comments here anyway .
Anyway, here are some general observations about your work that needs improvement.
* your values, everything es very flat, value isnt being used to change planes very effectively pay more attentio to this. This is very evident when you paint.
*Your mark making needs work, go do some line work studies and try and work out how to make your lines nicer . (a lot of the time this comes down to finding nice brush settings in combination with technique)
/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
Muz: I have issues with my values so thanks for pushing me, I'll pay more attention. As far as mark making, I feel much more comfortable with traditional media so like you said I may need to tweek my brush settings a bit to find the right touch with painter.
