Thread: AimBiZ's Sketchbook
February 15th, 2009 #1
Been looking through many awesome sketchbooks lately and figured I might as well start my own and see where it goes.
Need to practice on basically everything, but right now I only got some paintings to show.
Will have to do some studies on... well, everything later on. I might also put up some 3D stuff as well.

Wow teh last one really gives me great vibes. She kind of reminds me of Warcraft but in the most positive way possible. Or of one of those portraits you pick in Fantasy RPG. I always loved those and imagined stories and my characters to them. Finish that one up. It'll be awsome with the different light sources.

I think I'll go a bit Andrew Jones style on this pic, but not too much. Mainly adding some more excagurated ornaments and I must do something with the background, something the lightsources might come from.
Also must fix her torso since the neck is too long and some other stuff.

Wow, nice progress. The light on the boobs is very nice, but I think the far boob needs to be a little smaller due to perspective.
I also kind of liked the fire eyes that were a light source themselves, but I guess these are better. I'd suggest researching lips and the nose, I think it might be a little too much profile for her 3/4 face.
And for the image in total I might suggest to make it into one of those medieval portraits, where a rich bitch is sitting in front of a window in a stiff position and you can see landscapes in the background. That would be neat and a little more explanatory. You also might just make a candle the warm lightsouce, but please leave the star to be the other source, its pretty original!
I'll be back as soon as you update.

Yes, will definately do more research. Thanks for the tip about the profile. I'm always unsure how much of it that should be revealed in that angle.

hey man this is some great work, i really love your use of colors especially in the first three pictures and the picture in the 3rd post. I really wish i had the ability to use colors so well, just wandering do you have any tips ?

Looking at photographs is also good if you want to get some inspiration for lighting and such.
Overlay layers are good for achieving certain values of color as well. I use that now and then and merge them with the mayer I'm painting on and continue from there. It's also very handy for creating glow effects.
Hope it helps and good luck.

Just some ideas you might think about or ditch straight away!
Okay, the image is chnaging a lot, which is good on the one hand but some elements form teh odler ones were better in my opinion. The gap between the boobs is too big atm and they could be a bit lower. I also loved the fire eyes. Her jaw should extend more in direction of her ear. I'd make the format long and not wide. Enlarge the window and make an interesting but not distracting landscape. Keep the room simple, maybe a curtain to add interest. The original circlet fits more. Herr new lips are tons better. Nose is better, too. I kinda liked the orginal blue shading on her right facehalf.
Just some thoughts!

The boobs I will fix of course. Might go with your suggestion on the background. Acurtain could be very nice. I might perhaps add a subtle flame to her eyes or something as well, to keep the old but still more realistic.
