I am starting to get discouraged about my horrible painting skills. I watch Jason Chan and other painting pros (Mr. Delicious and Randis) and they make it seem so easy! A lot of their strokes seem so quick and random but they turn out beautiful. I am working on this everyday and I am not seeing myself progress in the painting department. The only way I can get a decent coloring job is by glazing with overlay and multiply layers and I don't really like the way it looks. Oh well back to the drawing board...
If anyone has any tips or helpful advice about painting please fill me in. Thanks!
A painting from life. This is all I could get done before the lighting changed. The colors are all wrong. I seem to have to much red in there. I tried and tried to analyze those clippers to find the right color but had no luck. If anyone sees anything colorwise that would help please feel free to say something. Thanks!
hey kvansant, i think the guy with the rifle looks a little silly bc of his hand positions. they are both bent and kinda flat, which makes him look a little flamboyant imo
Hey dude quite a strong sketchbook, good solid digital art ( quite stronger than your traditional imho ) I loved the guns sketch designs, your anatomy designs (that with the upper torso ) and your Master study, quite strong imagery.
Well done keep up the good work
pretty impressive baby steps man, other than the online workshop you are taking now have you taken any classes before? you dont appear to be any kind of amatuer. what are you using to draw these color pieces? some kind of tablet and software? anyways great artwork man keep it up
Thanks Grriffion! I am very much an amatuer but I am flattered. I went to two different art schools online (two years) and felt I was wasting my money; so I dropped out to study on my own. I do plan to get back into school next May after I get out of the military. Probably theartdepartment.org or Gemini.pretty impressive baby steps man, other than the online workshop you are taking now have you taken any classes before? you dont appear to be any kind of amatuer. what are you using to draw these color pieces? some kind of tablet and software? anyways great artwork man keep it up
About your question regarding the software. I use Adobe Photoshop CS4 and a wacom tablet. Thanks again for your response!
I really like your last few portraits. You seem to be a lot more comfortable with portraits, which is nothing short of inspiring. I wish there was more color variation in the skin tones, to make them feel more alive. But skin is such a hard thing to paint, I can feel your pain! Keep practicing, I'm really liking where you are going.
Hey, last few are looking great. Love the castle titan one, really creative The last face study looks very convincing also. I'll be checking back in the future, interested to see how you progress!
