Hey all! So Currently im focusing on color theory and skin tones. Ill basically be posting anything that is worth viewing from my daily Photoshop sketches. I look froward to all feedback and criticism.
General body proportions seem pretty good. I especially like that you don't draw hands too small
I would suggest concentrating on faces and getting the spacial relationship of the features perfect... as well as the previous suggestion to look at perspective as well.
You have better digis than a lot of people's!
More studies from photos and one from the imagination. The what i feel im really struggleing with is matching colors right so they all look part of the same picture.
p sage: Thanks, Ill have to get out the mirror and do some more self portraits.
Jizu: Yeah perspective makes me cringe.... But ill do a few, Sometimes i'm tempted to 3d model a scene in max and just paint over it, Makes me feel like i'm cheating though.
You're figures seem really good, but the environments seem to lack punch, I am no good at environments so I find it hard to see what the actual problems are.. Maybe some harder edges, and contrasts to create focal point..
Anyway, keep it up
Nice studies, man. Your skintones are looking good already, but You have to work on anatomy more. It's good to see you pushing yourself. Keep the studies coming.
As for the landscapes, I think corza334 is right that they lack punch maybe because of edges, but I think You should also work on Your values. I took a random forrest photo from the Internet and turned it to grayscale, and I did the same to one or two of your forrest environments, and your paintings turned out a lot more flat.
Hope it helps, keep going!
First Sketchbook pencil sketch update. Also some more misc figure studies. On a side note, I am very happy with the barbarian painting attached. I just woke up this morning and started painting and this is what came out. Inspiration came from falling asleep last night reading R.A Salvatore's The Crystal Shard.
Great pencil sketches and faces, the hands are nice as well. I have the same phone as you haha. Try doing some paintings of people with more shadows on them so that you can get some interesting cools/warms playing off of each other. Otherwise keep going, stuff looks good.
