    Sirielle's sketches & studies

    Time to wake up and be more active. Here is today's take from imagination, inspired by latest lesson with Jason Manley and Zhang Lu:


    A second take to make a portrait of this character, the first sketch attached on the left. I painted it more in 2009, but don't like the result thus take#2. I may treat it as a WIP or a concept, haven't decided yet. Jan 2009 face concept:


    And some of 2010 sketches. I've got old sb at CGTalk and Epilogue forums, here let it be a fresh start.

    Looks like you're working hard. I really like that Reubens study.

    Try to loosen up some — those scribbly pencil lines aren't pretty and (if you're like me) they'll confuse you when you're trying to bring a piece to a finish. Try drawing with pen for a few weeks to force yourself to build confidence.

    Good advice! Indeed I need more confidence in many fields, that shows up in lines. Thank you for the comment!

    Finalizing this one. I know I overdone details, can't drop them now. Or maybe can, but still want to see what if I do all (though I have problem with the snake ). In any case I still have the old variant. Image started a year ago, both variants:

    Haven't updated in 2 years, haven't done much either. Each time I have a break I feel like learning all again from scratch.

    The woman in red, haven't finshed her, yet:

    Took some ice on canvas instead - Eldar crossing the Grinding Ice in The Silmarillion:

    The final stage of the first concept; the wider variant will be continued.

    - inspired by Hubble shot.

    A generic drow priestess for my Icewind Dale 2 character. I've finished the game with original portrait and this one got lost & forgotten.
