Awesome SB! Like the cool-warm figures.
Take care. Hope your troubles pass.

Been busy with CHOW and moving into my apartment.
i might not have internet access for a while after thursday. (I live behind a dorm though so i'm hoping I will be able to pick up my uni's wireless. )
I FINALLY feel motivated again. Finally finally finally past the burnt out stage and ready to start doing more hardcore figure studies. I had lost sight of my goals for a while and now I feel much more inspired and spent a lot of time educating myself.
you might see some graphic design stuff pop up in here time to time since that's my major ;p
here's one o fmy CHOW pieces, not done yet, didn't get a chance yet to go back in and fix the multiple things wrong with it. (And i regret choosing this composition...it was not the best for CHOW guidelines.)
you can see more of this and my teams work in the link in my sig!!
Needs more sparkling snow and I like the composition; the head breaks the wall line and the sceptre draws the eye in.
¿Qué tal, chica? Great stuff here Hala, be sure to let yourself breath every now and then (fatigue can kill progress!). Anyways, I was looking at your gesture drawings and I was wondering where you got your refs from, I'm in desperate need! I'll be keepin' up with ya, take care! BTW, Your last piece you posted is looking real good, time to start breaking out some hard details though, to much blur and ya got mush.
The colours and the rendering on that last piece kick ass man, the way you handled to fur areas in particular is great. I think it could do with a few areas being a bit sharper, but that's a minor issue and it works great with the soft style you have now. I mean this wholeheartedly when I say keep up the great work!
hala? ... don't you mean holla'?!!! haha You are making leaps and bounds! Keep it up lady!!! Are you teaching yourself?, cause that's what I've been doing (even though I got a worthless art degree...LOL) Here are some anatomy books in my collection, i've found that every one has something to offer.. I've scoured through them many times, and I always come back to them (cause' the learnin' never stops! ) I'm assuming you've heard of Loomis, Burne Hogarth, and Bridgman all of their books are great... My anatomy teacher in college recommended these two,
Artistic Anatomy by Dr. Paul Richer, and
Human Anatomy for Artists by Eliot Goldfinger
These books are really thorough for learning insertions and origins of all the muscles.. (yes you HAVE to learn where they are , there's just no shortcut...)
also, check out The Artist's Complete Guide to Facial Expressions by Gary Faigin.. I don't like his drawings as much per say, but if you want to learn about the subtleties of the face, that book is the s*&t. You have a great spirit and I look forward to watching you grow! Happy learning!
MY DAILY SKETCHES
If you can read this, I gave you 5 stars
Looking really wonderful Larissa!
You've improved ten fold since you've joined here, I love seeing progress, so proud of you
Oh, and I think some of the books DarkEyes recommended are here: - http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=131117
And thanks again for letting me join you guys in the CHOW, been so good!
Take care Hala,
just want to thank everyone for the support--i'm having a lot of trouble with internet in my apartment so i will update and respond to comments later this weekend, thanks again!
Hell Yeah to that ^
Thank you thank you thank you so much everyone for your crits and advices and links to books (YAY I LOVE BOOKS thanks darkeyes) I am listening and I am trying to apply what you say and I'm eternally grateful for your support and help much love to you all 333
I'm really sorry for the long absence. long story and i'm back at uni.
Also, congrats to everyone who participated in CHOW, everyone's entries were lovely.
just a quick sketch to say hi. more stuff tomorrow
exciting news tho--i met someone who is also on concept art, but she hasn't posted her work here in a while. but it was cool to finally meet someone on the east coast who's on CA
Nice stuff, I dig the expressiveness and motion in your work.
Thanks for commenting a little while back. I was wondering if you could clarify wireframe anatomies. did you mean basic figure construction, or more like wireframes, like contour lines?
It'll be good to see some stuff outside of TeamCHOW. I'm really interested to see where you'll go next. I was thinking of starting a training camp thread centered around gesture,anatomy, and color. The curriculum and speed will probably be pretty hardcore, but if you and anyone you can drag along wants to get the ball rolling on something let me know.
