Here are a few more drawings. I am not very good at acurately drawing peoples faces so I tried working on that a bit. Still need a lot of practice. The other images are just some random late night pencil movements. Sorry for the bad scan quality.
I have been practicing digital painting from life as well as some color studies. Here are some of the results. The first one is a quick painting of an M16 round laying on my desk. The second I just tried to match the colors with the original photo. The last painting I tried to depict sadness and depression with colors.
Good designs and very nice digital paints. The pictures of the guns also look strong. You seem to be aware of what you need to work one. Anatomy mostly. How do you go about your training? Is there figure drawing classes were you live? Those are great. Otherwise working from anatomy books and pictures. Maybe going out and drawing people that walk by. This is very difficult but good practice.
Bergulf thanks! Right now I attend the Art Institute Online but I do most of my drawing from anatomy books and pictures of random people from the internet. I have one more year left in the Air Force then I am going to Gnomon School of Visual Effects to work on my foundation skills. Besides hands and feet are there other areas of anatomy that I really need to work on?
I don’t think there is any area of anatomy that one should focus more on then the rest. Doing a lot of fairly quick full body sketches and trying to capture the pose and movement with minimal lines I think is good practice. Figuring out how all the different parts of the body move together and making it look convincing I think is the most important.
