After doing the gestures I decided to draw something randomly and this is what I came up with. I want to finish it by tomorrow some time because I'm liking how it's coming out. I think doing the gesture drawings first really helped me.
Hey Ian thanks for your comments on my SB. I was put on to the pixelovely by a fellow member here and I think it's a great tool for artsits. I'm glad to see you working on the spider lady character, side view looks good and this last one is interesting as well. Keep at it.
I haven't been posting for a while because I've been in the process of rebranding myself by redesigning my website. This is something I've been holding off for a while so it was something I had to do and something that took top priority so when I apply for jobs, they can see my website. It's mostly finished but I still need to add some content to some of the pages and add php to the contact form so that it works.
Money is also an issue. Their is a continuing ed class that starts in June but it's pretty expensive. I've talked to some other programmers and almost all of them that I talk to say that they taught themselves.
I'm def going to start drawing again soon. I had no idea this was going to take me this long.
I guess my focus right now is to find a job that pays decently. This way I can still continue with my art. I also need to redesign my resume which is something I have to do this week.
Anyway, I'm really curious what you guys think of my website so far. It's best to view it in Safari or Chrome to see some of the animation features. Unfortunately, Safari and Chrome are the only two browsers that support the css3 animation features but I think firefox should be supporting it soon.
Hey Ian, good to hear from you. Sounds like you've been busy and I like the new website. I'm using Firefox browser so I couldn't see the animations. Your short film animations look very promising though. I think you should save your money and just keep self tutoring with the programming. From what I've seen of your work so far you seem to be developing well that way, plus I think the website creation helps to showcase all your skills. Well done.
Here is something I've been working on. It was a doodle but I like how it's coming along. I notice for me that when I get a little too nervous or afraid that I'm going to make a mistake, my anatomy tends to get messed up. When I'm a bit more relaxed and don't think too much about it, my anatomy is much better. I still need to find a good workflow for me.
I haven't posted on here in a long time. Been really busy with other things in my life. I applied for a game artist position for mobile games and I actually got the opportunity to take a skill based test for them. All they said was that the it had to have penguins and it had to be in a specific style. This is what I came up with.
It was pretty challenging because of the strict deadline. I didn't find out until Wednesday but really couldn't start it until Friday night and spent the whole weekend on it. I'm exhausted.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I used Illustrator and Photoshop, something I don't normally do.
Anyway, I was wondering what you guys thought. Wish me luck!
Thanks muramura and Marion Rowling! I will hopefully be posting some more work soon. I haven't done much art in a while. I think I needed a break because I was working myself way too hard and stressing myself out. I think it had an effect on me.
And yes, perspective is something I should think about more so I will do that in my next illustration.
I've never done this before but I decided to really identify what artists I really like and create myself an art influence page with my favorite artists on it. It is really good to see everything at once. Granted, I'll probably be adding more to it but this is a good place for me to really start identifying my style and having some more control over it. I thought I would share mine with you.
So I started working on some thumbnails for a new illustration and I ended some sketching another character. I was playing with warm shadows and cooler highlights. I'm not sure if I'm liking the color yet. I'm still playing around with it.
I know it's been a long time since I've updated. I've been taking a break from art and pursuing other fields that I'm more interested in but this morning I felt like doing this doodle. I'll try to finish it soon.
These are some thumbnails I started but I ended up doing a doodle also. I really need to stop doing that and focus more on thumbnailing. I have an idea for an illustration I really want to do so I will be posting the progress of that hopefully pretty soon.
