A lot of these faces have a lot of character. I'd love to see you working on some kind of project.
Turpentine Wow thanks man! I actually really want to get into a mobile game studio for Android games right now! but ofcourse, that will not happen......yet
Heres an update, omg clouds....
Updating with some horrible sketches
Think I'm calling it a day
Happy 2012 everyone!
I thought this SB had only one page and made comments about your very first drawings, my bad! This is awesome and it seems that you followed what they told you. Your anatomy looks better and better =) Keep up with the good work and thanks for stopping by!!
hey dude, keep an eye on photo-reffing when it comes to faces. On that last picture post it looks to me like you were in two minds- drawing the hair and the eye covered by shadow (which has caused the eye to become stretched and misplaced in an attempt of correction) and the bottom right section of the face which seems stronger.
Dont forget to flip your canvas often (and early!) to fix these errors. Also try alternative between having an initial linear line sketch and starting with paint colours.
Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
Hey there, nice sketchbook so far! I would suggest that you focus more on structure in your head drawings. That will help you to replicate the portraits more accurately and aid you in your imaginative work in the future. You seem to mostly have trouble with centering the eyes, or sometimes the whole center line of the face will be slanted compared to the ears/outline of the head. Don't forget that you can flip the image to help alert you to symmetrical issues like these.
The dragon piece is very nice. For a crit, the sun in the back feels very arbitrarily added and does not seem to work with the rest of the image. If that sun were really the light source for the scene, the dragons would be backlit with rim lighting and harsh shadows (because when the sun is so low in the sky, it has a very strong directional light but does not light up the atmosphere well, so atmospheric light is very limited).
Keep up the good work!
DaveGarcia Haha, thanks man lol, I'm on page 3 now :B LEVEL UP!!
FootstepsBeckon oh goodness me, I do flip my canvas like every 3 seconds,seems like I missed that mistake, how embarasing D: Thanks!
dierat Thanks!Haha I seem to have a problem with basically everything
How would one study the structure of the face? :3
Ahh...I knew the sun wasnt going to work :I .The sun isnt really the main source of the light, the main souce of the light is from the clouds...so basically theres light coming from everywhere! D:
And here I'm just exploring the anime/cartoon style.....I should be shot for making Konan so ugly D:>
You can also get some anatomy books that focus on the construction of the figure, like Figure Drawing Design and Invention by Michael Hampton.
dierat Ah like that!I see I see, I shall immediately study the plane head!
Hmm..I see what you mean now, I should've done more research before I begin,very useful site btw, thank you so so much
Some really simple plane head guy 'study'
And some sketches of heads with the above applied 'knowledge'
I tried to sketch the same person 3 times to see if I can actually manage to get them to look the same, used ref
