yeah ever since i discovered photoshop i havnt picked up a pencil, studyings a lot more fun this way. your anatomy form studys look great,now play with more color variation. paint a man lit by diffent lights and stuff. use more contrast in the value, go dark. ad a unsharpen mask at the end for flavor, unless your against it. do you have massive or gnomon tutorials? get some. i learned alot in 6months.
Thanks for dropping in. I have some massive tutorials wich are really helpful indeed, and I think i should get some more of them.
I agree and I have noticed the same thing. After finishing a piece I usually notice afterwards that it could use a lot more deeper/darker shadows and also some color variation. Got to work on it more..
If you're worried about getting a bigger range of values, don't forget that if you've got a piece you're working on in color you can always temporarily convert it to greyscale to check your scale of values.
Thumbnail's of some action pose silhouettes. I tried to get the characters to read from the silhouette only, hopefully I succeeded. I also tried to be quick about it but it took a bit too long, I guess speed will improve eventually by training. Attachment 983853
Wow, great job, all of this stuff looks pretty amazing. Specifically i like the silhouettes, they look pretty professional. The human measures woman looks perfect, completely symmetrical for side and front view. Your well on your way to being a great artist, keep at it! Frankly, i wish i had your talent, haha.
