    Was: archery input - updated with watercolour

    Hey guys! I seem to start all my posts with "Not sure if anyone remembers me", I guess I ought to pop in more often than once every two years...

    Here are two pics I'm working on at the moment, both in a Fantasy setting.

    In the first one, what concerns me most right now is that readability of the scene and perspective of the bridge work. I know it's a bit wonky, but is it "old wonky" or "badly drawn wonky"?

    The second is just a kissy scene I felt like doing. Does the anatomy look okay? His arm is bent the wrong way; I've already noticed that and will correct it. *Oh, right, and her hand is made of paper.

    Thanks in advance!

    the bridge scene looks very good for me, perhaps you could put the wall on the far side of the bridge a little higher, maybe.

    The kissing scene is pretty awesome as well, besides your own observations it looks fine.

    Great Work!

    Thanks, Wender! Right, that bit still looks odd. I'll correct that.

    I went ahead today and cleaned up the kiss scene.

    I'm probably going to colour it in watercolours tomorrow.

    Lines are sweet but it doesn't look like their lips are going to connect.

    DeeLock - I tried both in the initial stages; I liked the clumsy impression this one conveyed.

    This is what the finished image looks like, btw.

    I always thought these were watercolours.

    Why, yes, they are. This one is, at least.

    Thank you! I took a looooong detour into digital for several years, but it seems I've finally found my way home, mostly.

    A new sketch, from the same story as the above:

    I looked at a lot of reference of longbow archery photos; does it look okay?

    I love the watercolor job you did. It just has such a whimsical/light feel.

    Reminds me of a tutorial I saw maybe 5 or 6 years ago using a blend of photoshop and watercolor. The process went from pencil sketch to cleaned up photoshop lines, then printed on watercolor paper, painted in black and white and then scanned and colorized.

    Thanks! That tutorial was probably mine - if it was this one

    I use colours again these days, though.

    LOL, it totally was hahahaha. The web is a small world after all. I notice you prefer a very small niche of subject matter. I wonder what a sci-fi pic, like maybe a space shop scene would look like don in your style in watercolor would look like. Anyhow I look forward t seeing more, not too much to crit, as your lines are pretty accurate.

    I love your watercolour paintings!

    I think you should make the archer guy's hands a little bigger. They look a bit delicate!~

    I like your watercolor drawings.

    Good idea to use gray scale watercolors and color them digitally.

    Drawing on paper gives more freedom to arm movement ... mh ... more then my postal-stamp wacom.

    Keep up your nice works.

    Regards,
    Leonard

    Truepinkas: I know, my scope is limited. But since I get to do so little artwork these days, with family and work, I have to make sure that the stuff I do is what I really want to do. I have some older Star Wars pics, but most of that was before I even owned a computer, so I haven't got any of that scanned

    Ethlen: Thanks, you're right! Better now? I also worked on the background figures a bit. The rest will come in the lineart.

    Edit: Thanks, Talwacht! I don't use that greyscale technique anymore, though - that was back when I was way insecure about my colours at times. A few years of working digitally and being able to tweak colours to my life's content have mostly got rid of that.
