Hello, everyone. After not posting anything here for... ahem... a lot of time, I decided to start a new sketchbook thread. Hopefully it'll motivate me to paint and draw more often and, also, post more often.
Thanks for the nice reception! I always feel embarassed posting such sketchy work, 'cause... well... it's really sketchy and not all that pretty. But I guess the environments made up for it
Lunarsis Thanks! Really glad you like the pose. Usually I struggle soo much with poses. I wish we lived in a world where people could assume two... maybe three poses at the most. And most of those poses involved no movement of the arms and legs...
raminafshari Thank you And, funny thing, I do work in a game company. I'm a 3D environment artist at Ubisoft
GearldsGrotto That's the look I was going for! Glad it came accross Though I was thinking more of "Baldur's Gate" and the like...
HolyMane Thanks! The grayscale dude is a sketch for a concept I'm gonna be painting for my portfolio. As for the little environments- I love doing those, so I hope I'll be able to post more soon
GoredGuar Thank you! I really like how the environments turned out as well. Hope to post more soon
Sooo... here's two works in progress. A couple of orcs. I know they're a bit generic looking as far as their faces go, but I had a really hard time comming up with an appearance that's both bulky and brutish, and orcish, and at the same time, appealing in its female form. Sooo... I decided to stick with the more classical look.
Also, in case anyone is interested, I can post a step-by-step image for the orcs.
CountBlackula Really glad you like tha paintings As for how long they take... Uhmmm... That's a complicated question, since I work on them on and off during my spare time. But I think they've taken about ten hours each so far.
cakeypigdog Yay! I got stars I'm just sarting to get the hang of colours soooo... I'm glad it's apparently working. I still have a ton of drawing related problems to fix in my work, but working in colour is so awesome! Glad you like the stuff
Here's some work on a third orc. Which was actually started first. Then finished. Then I edited it a thousand times. Then I hated it. Then I hated it some more. Then I started it again yesterday. Sooo... I've spent about three hours on it so far. I'm posting a close up shot of the face and a step-by-step of how I've gotten it to where it is so far. That's so people can see how charmingly non-pretty my paintings are in the beginning. Hopefully they get better towards the end
