    Racquel's Sketches and WIPs

    So I'm finally de-lurking. Here's the latest.

    This one's practice on blending my sketch layer in with the painting layer.

    Today's Sketches

    I started out with a super vague notion of a witch with cyberpunk tendencies and proceeded to sketch out some outfits, like so:

    Then I decided to expand on it, like this:

    And, true to my contrary nature, I ended up working on this instead:

    My brother was feeling under the weather, and therefore he was the perfect ...victim....uh model 'cause he couldn't escape.

    Then he got fidgety, and I got bored. Thus this unfinished thing:

    Hi Racquel,
    Something which may help you > Try to use bigger resolution and harder brushes even of quick paintings, it would be easier to make contour less clumsy. It looks like detail (actually it is) but if you have clear conturs you can easily see the importaint points (anatomy, perspective, composition) and also you have better feeling and motivation to fine it.
    The same about the lines - try to clean it - do it courageous, sure and clean. Line itself has it's value - just like the curly hairs on your sketchs, thats very nice. If you do unsure dashing, it just hide where the actual contur should be, and you can't learn where to put it, when you in any case put it everythere.

    Sketch of Your brother looks fine. It's always trouble (for me) when it comes to pupil in eyes but try to do so, it always completly change expression. Also the mounth and chin looks a bit to in front or to right. Still, nice reflection and skin surface.

    Thanks so much for the input, asiJa. Especially about the hard brush and contuours. I tend to "guesstimate" which results in random, unclean lines. I'm going to try to work on that today.

    Eyes are always the last thing for me to draw, 'cause I suck at them. LOL. And that pretty much bites, because you're right: they control the final expression.

    *makes grabby hands at more refs and books*

    So I worked on some digital stuff the last couple of days. I get bored quickly, so I think I'm going to work on some more anatomy next.

    The following is a result of listening to the Inception Original Soundtrack over and over and over. And Arthur's awesomeness.

    Hello! Nice start with your sketchbook! Your studies are coming along great and I'm liking the paintings. So far, I think that you might be able to benefit from pushing the values more in your paintings though. You seem subtle with the shading, so try and add and extra layer for depth. I notice that you avoid eyes too, haha. If your not comfortable with the eyes, try and do a study on them. See how they work, what shapes they're made of, etc. That's all I really have so far. Keep it up and hope to see more from you!

    I had jury duty for the last three days, so I decided to do some stealth!sketching of my fellow jurors.

    Eyes. I'm still looking for a way to simplify them without going too anime-ish.

    I've been in a learning phase lately, so I decided to take advantage of the CA 50% sale and purchase a couple of video tutorials. I also whipped out my ridiculous long list of art tutorials. Anyway most of my sketches have been crap or notes for the most part lately.

    Perspective slays me every.effing.time. But the way this dude teaches it gives me some hope.
