Jeff Lai- thanks for checking out my work! i appreciate it. ive got like 4 more pages thumbnailed out for that wolvie comic, i just gotta get my lazy ass in gear! i think im gonna read some old comics to get me in the mood...
in the meantime, on a completely unrelated note, my painter program is acting very funny lately. the brush selector bar is completely mia. ive searched high and low, and i cant get it back. ??? i think i might have accidentally deleted it (if thats even possible). anyways, i should be ok for now because i usually only use the airbrush on fine detail anyways. anyone have any idea how i screwed this up?
so heres just some random fat guy speedpaint thing i did tonight. . .
Fighting seraph- whoa, posted at the same time wooops. thanks for the comment, and i am gonna start doing alot of studies VERY SOON. but talk is cheap, so i promise the next time i post itll be a slew of anatomy studies.
Silvestri99- thanks for looking man, and the studies are on the way. im gonna go burn a hole in my bridgeman book with my eyes...
Theodor- wow, thanks man! i must warn you i am susceptible to flattery... so dont let me get too lazy! i need a solid kick to the wedding tackle every now and again to get me moving again.
Jatherip- thanks jatherip, and ive heard this recommendation before, but for the life of me, i cannot find how to set the airbrush to have a hard edge. i would try using a different medium, however like i said above, my brush selection bar has mysteriously dissapeared in painter. i think my computer is cursed.
***this is not a real update***
-but, i thought i would share my joy with whoever accidentally wanders in here. i got an i phone for my b-day back in july, and i just found the 2 coolest apps. for it EVER. or until rag doll blaster 2 comes out. the first app is just a mini pocket version of posemaniacs.com that just gives you an infinite number of random poses (in surprisingly good detail). very excited for that one. but, the mini program that has got my olsen twins throbbing, is sketchbook pro for the i-phone!!!! ive never used the real program on my computer, but the i phone one is INSANE! i was just screwing around with it for a minute, and was surprised at how well the brushes handled. (especially with my chubby fingers) you get layers, undo/redo functions, eye dropper, zoom WAY in/out, a very nice color wheel, and a very simple but effective screen layout. im very happy to have found this thing, dont get me wrong i doubt ill do any beautiful plein air painting on the thing, but its got a ton of potential for quick color comps and sketches, quick shit, you know? anyways, heres my very first i-phone painting ever. it kind of sucks, but you can see the potential right??!
Nice studies !
I like your lines, verry personnal style and it gives a good original ground for your comics things.
Keep up! I think you should do more of those anatomical / gestures pratices (and I can say that bcause... so do I !!)
good work man. I esp. like the 2 torso study. I'd suggest, as others, to use hard, square brushes, and define first the main shapes of the figure.
Anyway, those pieces are looking good! Keep up the work.
Bengiskhan - thanks, much much much more studies to come...
Abrodos - thank you, im going to try to work with hard brushes when i do some color studies in painter. i think for now though, im gonna stick with traditional for my studies, then work my way up to color when i feel alot more comfortable with general forms.
Rokasbutkys - some quick bridgeman head studies coming your way. but im planning on doing alot more. heads, torsoes, limbs, all that good stuff. thanks for the comment.
Austenfm - thanks man, ive decided to temporarily ban myself from doing anything but figure studies, until i feel alot more at ease with it. ive got a couple more good books after this bridgeman one that i want to work my up to. i cant wait to do some Giovanni Civardi studies, love how he defines his figures with pencil.
some bridgeman studies... forgive the mistakes, cant erase pen.
