Same here - I also like your colouring. And I want to see more as well.
Hellfire- Thanks for stopping by!
Tripage- Yeah, I'm working on it.
latigid- Thanks, will do.
Really encouraging to see you all critiquing and commenting for more. Thank you so much.
I was going to do a self portrait but it wasn't turning out so I decided to finish up the Orc portrait instead. Took a lot of time but it's finished. I'm going to try and finished all the WIPs I said I would and dedicate the rest of November to master copies and some Loomis/Bridgman/Hogarth/Posemaniac/etc...
I feel so stupid, haha. I just had a happy accident in photoshop.
I never hear anyone mention this so I thought I'd share for any nubs who don't know. I always knew about the Image > Mode> *list of different types of colour modes here* but I never knew that you could get the colour pallets from the colour picker.
I was already pretty good at picking out colours on the regular H setting, but sometimes I was limited by it. Now I can just switch it to a different setting and alter or get the colours I need. This just made photoshop feel a little more traditional for me. How come no one mentions this ever?
Also: Lab and CYMK are pretty much for photography, but I'm sure you can get some use out of Lab.
haha i really like the first images of the bust. that is exactly what happens to me when i try to start a pic from refernce the first 3-4 tries wind up looking like aliens haha.
cool stuff though, your paintings are coming out nicely and the colors are good in the study you're working on. Id just make sure to keep flipping the canvas to make sure everything is lining up and making sense to yah.
Krato- Will do!
jdeegz- Glad to know I'm not alone. I'm remember to keep flipping the canvas.
This took me 4-5 hours or so. Which feels long for me. I didn't get all the colours right and it might be a bit off in some places, but I gave it my best. I think I see improvement.
Going to do some studies now.
Some studies from Bridgeman and Loomis.
Having some difficulties with the Loomis one. I've always had this problem and I've tried and tried to fix it, but I can't figure it out. It always gave me troubles when I went to make Orthographics for 3d junk. I can set up the lines but I have a hard time keeping lined up or in proportion. Can anyone give me some advice? This has been plaguing me for 6 years.
Also, any advice for getting the right colours in mastercopies?
A little more on the master copy. Took a break and doodled something but I don't know where to take it, heh.
A lot of good work in here since my last stop, and I think you're improving in a very short time.
I think the color study of the female torso is something you should stop with... because the measurements are off. The breasts as well as the midsection are pretty stretched in relationship to the original. That said... hopefully it was useful to you.
I liked the Trojan helmet one... pretty cool. Keep kicking ass on the master studies.
p sage- That was actually very helpful, I had no idea.
Just woke up two hours ago. Slept through most of the day, just got around to some studies and I'm really frustrated. I feel like I'm drawing like I did when I was 9, maybe it's the underhand position but even the Loomis one I didn't use underhand for looks like crap. The very last one is a study I did a couple of months ago for comparison.
I'm trying to figure out why they look so crappy right now and why they're so different from my other work.
hey Enydimon! thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. i've looked at yours and i'm impressed that you have a good eye on color. i'm still struggling with colors, so that is why i only post my pencil sketches on CA. i think i have a few color works on my DA, but they're horrible hahaha. anyways keep up the good work and i will be watching your book!
teapo- Thanks! I think I do pretty good with colours when it comes to not working on reference. I still need to figure out how to get the most out of observing and replicating them.
Small update on master copy.
hey guy! very good studies (eventhough some errors can be noticed)
keep on drawing and you'll be very good
maybe try to study percepective, it can help you
just a question: how do you transform a black and white painting into color ( what you've done for the orc for example ), just with a color layer?
Twan- Thanks, feel free to point out the errors or give suggestions if you have any. I'll probably get started on perspective after I don't feel so bogged down.
This master copy is kickin' my arse. I might start on another one, because I have a feeling it's going to take me a bit.
Give up trying to do anymore drawing for today. It's just pissing me off right now.
