    Attachment 946117

    The reason I separated the stages of the way I paint figures was for me to see the previous stages as I go. It worked too, a few times I came to a later stage and saw ways I could improve the first stages to better set myself up. I hope to do more of these... took me long enough Im slow today

    PepeDN - thanks nothing can stop me studying! haha

    This was SOOO fun So I was in my old room looking for a pleck and I came across these old Lord of the Rings .. I dunno what you call them, minatures? figurines? Anyway I found them and I noticed how cool all there poses are! Immediately I thought these would brilliant to draw from different angles to get better at poses! So, that's what im guna do

    The studies look really good, and thanks for showing how the drawing evolves, it really help me to see how others work. I really like the lord of the rings figures and a great way to practice. keep up the good work

    jskotte - Thank you kindly Yeah you should try lots of different approaches, I do and I thinks its more fun that way, plus If I ever get stuck I can just try something else, rather than drawing myself into a hole haha. Thats never fun. If your interested in those pictures of the figures, im going to upload them to photobucket probably tomorrow


    Some hand drawings I did, for some reason I cant get my head around, fists are really hard to draw

    Attachment 947553

    Ive started a new imaginative painting, Im taking a new approach at it, I didnt just jump into this one... well, AS MUCH. Anyway I decided to save in increments so later I can look for critiques maybe or I dunno. Just seems like a good Idea.
    So far all I did was work out the pose, the character, and then very very quickly I established some bg/ composition and a setting, I dont want to paint all those guys fighting in the background but at the same time I know if I can push myself to do that then thats alot of xp for me XD

    I like how you handle the character but I think the first pose has more action in it (the pose where he blocks with his other sword). As for the expression, make sure he looks at the part you want the viewer to look at. (this picture of Dan Milligan can help too http://homepage.mac.com/danmilligan/...monhunter9.jpg)

    Lyno - Yeah looking back now I think youre right, I felt something was wrong and it could have more action in it. I really wanted to sell that feeling of, that left arm is swinging back and now the right arm is coming down. But the way I have it now it just looks like its not moving at all. Thanks for the link too thats really helpful!

    Ah man your capturing the expression of these characters so well. Deckard looks amazing. Lighting is very good.
    The only thing i would say is, but im not sure what the actually scene is like from the film, is that it seems to be pretty much all one blue, its nice for it to have that blue pallette but i feel like it might have just some tiny subtler bits of other colours in there, maybe some greyer blues aswell - seems very saturated. Dunno tho, youd have to check.

    Keep up the good work dude.

    Loads of awesome studies, dude! I really like the moviescreens you do studies of (I should try it out). You got some problems with proportions in your imagination stuff, the head is sometimes a bit too big.


    Btw, I gotta ask about this study you made, any idea where I can find the painting? Saw it long ago and I always liked the mood in it. I don't remember the name of it though.

    PHATandy - thanks man I probably spend most of my time on their faces. Yeah man I was thinking EXACTLY that, until half way through the third one haha, I wasnt getting it right and it was really annoying me, then I realised I was complicating it too much, the scene is acutally all blue and very very saturated, theres only subtle hints of less saturated blues and what not, and of course the light source from the back is a less saturated greener blue but yeah, I think I got the colors fairly accurate Just took me a while to get my head around.

    Lateman - thanks Hopefully il get more free time soon to do imaginative stuff

    LORD M - Thanks, yeah man you should, I learn alot about lighting schemes and stuff like that because your not thinking about the sames things, your then thinking about what the director is trying to say, and capturing that. Yeah my proportions suck when I try to invent a pose, I dont do it very often so my brain tends to forget about things while Im doing it
    Yeah man that study was of a Bouguereau.

    yo man, love that creature concept. Thats pretty rocking!
    That DSG is lookin' cool aswell, but man...perspective is off..
    that circle on top should have the same centre point as the bottom circle,
    right now it looks crooked. Love the combination of soft and hard edges.

    Two paintings from a month ago in life drawing class. The objective was basically use local color.... and that was it pretty much! I messed up so bad in that class because my palete kept getting filthy leaving me with muddy colors and frustration!

    This weeks class we were using set color palates which was AWESOME. AND there was only 3 of us so UBER feedback was given.

    This was using I think 3 colors next to eachother on the color wheel.

    Lyno - Hey, thanks man, I believe I like your studies also! I did actually run out of time on that one so maybe your right, I cant remember

    Hamorhage - thanks dude, you not keeping up with your sketchbook? or have you forgotten about it

    Mischeviouslittleelf - Thanks Colors are awesome! and I aint high when I say that haha. Yeah gota do more Ford, maybe Il do some Indiana Jones studies.


    Had to take a little break after college finished last week. And I couldnt post before that, I was WAY too stressed out. Anyway Ive un-wound now and im ready to get into a routine, there just so much of my art I want to develop I really have to make out a schedule or something. I have more plans but I wont mention them yet in case I end up not doing them haha

    Failed self portrait, it lost direction. I think im more comfortable doing long studies only if I have line work nailing down all the features n stuff.

    Attachment 980747

    Yeah all I got so far is observational stuff but there is definetly alot of concept stuff coming!!!!!!!!!
    My personal imaginative paintings are my focus for the summer, im totally free to explore.
    I want to finish that battle scene I was working on. Also theres this starcraft 2 painting I wana do (desperate for a beta key).

    Also I had some thoughts about a process for bringing my paintings to a decent finish.

    Give me your thoughts on this

    Idea
    Thumbnails
    Rough sketch
    Clean up
    Color sketch (nothing tonal yet, just blocks)
    Then for lighting I was thinking of setting a mock of that up in 3DsMax, got to put all that knowledge to use.
    Quickly lay in tones in B&W
    Color layers
    Over paint
    Finishes

    That will all probably change/ Il figure it out when I go to do it but yeah thats what I was thinking


    I would like to know peoples thoughts on using 3D to set up lighting though! Good/Bad?, For/Against?
    Personally I think its a pretty good Idea considering alot of Illstrators go to similar but more costly lengths to ensure a realistic finish. And of course it would have to not be used as a crutch but just an aid. Yeah tell me what ya'll think.

    Nice studies so far! Making real good progress with figures and digital work.
    Pay more attention to cast shadows in your imagination work, it can really help bring out form, especially where objects overlap.
