Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
A short course in 3D modelling led me to drawing which i have been doing for almost 9 months now - the last 4 of which i have picked up digital painting.
This is my second digital painting (the first being the obligatory billiard ball which i can't find).
Crits and comments welcome.
As far as this one goes.
Happily, obligatory Bargue. Sorry about the quality, camera's all I have at the moment.
This is the sketch book I use when I'm on the train. Again, sorry for the quality. Maybe I should make that my signature.
I like your style!
keep it up
This is the one I use when I'm at home, unless I get a bigger bag, in which case I'll call it something else.
Thanks LasseHeuer. I had a look at your sketch book and you have a nice variation of work. It's always good to try something new; any experience is good experience.
I really like your pencil shading skills.
Is that really your only 2nd digital painting? Damn good one.
And that guitar (or maybe smth else) perspective peace, would love to see it finished
...missed these first time round
This was my first ever render..
.. and this was my first crack at a Photoshop study/render
nice work you draw really well for the short time youve been drawing, keep it up
Check out my sketchbook!! http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...=703571&page=4
Thanks seesty. You've got a nice breadth of work and your anatomy is coming along nicely + those sketch book entries on the last page have a nice looseness to them.
Few more sketches while watching Top Gear.
Yo mate! Nice work! Really love the photo realistic rendering of yours =) Great technique.
Oh! Also noticed you're in Melbs! Wanna come to sketchgroup? hehe. It's on every Sunday in the city, a bunch of artists get together and sketch our asses off for a few hours, and you are totally welcome dude =)
Let me know if you want to come down.
This good in 9 months?! Dammit Fush you got me breaking out the double punctuation, and I'm sorely tempted to go back and add some more.
Inspiring to see what intensive nose-to-grindstone does.
Bring out your crits, asspats, and assorted comments
I got me a sketchbook...
Slow, yet hopefully steady, improvement. This way
The Sceptical Saint: Cheers for feedback. Looking at your skecthbook it looks like you're getting a good handle on values + that picture of the chicks face has got some nice fleshy tones.
Magic Man: Thanks very much. That pic of Syd Mead is spot on - real nice values in there + keen on doing sketch meet-up. Time and place?
These are quick, train doings with the aim of confident, crisp lines (hence no render) - the opposite to what my sketch lines have been so far.
Hopefully I'll get a scanner for my birthday.
I want to get faster at sketching and sketching accurately. I choose movie plates as I reckon I will learn more from the lighting than I would with an image from Google image search.
This is another still from "The Fifth Element" - it's a hand crushed in a concrete door with a key coming from the finger.
I am still getting caught up on detail and need to keep my colours more blocked and overall quicker. I found that instead of using the picture at full size it was easier to see colours and shapes by reducing it to around post-it note size. I'm guessing this is approximate to the technique of squinting to see general shapes and colours.
Bit's and pieces from the train sketchbook. Lines are getting more confident ..
Impressive stuff did u use photoref for the two digi paintings?
Whirly: Thanks, I did use photo ref for the billiard ball and the pilot. Nice 3D stuff by the way.
Benjie: Astute! I am a Kiwi, living in Melbourne. Thanks for the comments, your SB is coming along nicely. Here you might like this http://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment...n-The-Simpsons
