Thanks very much, if I've learnt anything from this site it's that everything needs thumbnails.
Here are some more for later images once I've decided. Can't work on just one thing at a time. Nope. Brain doesn't like that.
Seriously, I like the way you worked the progress on that, from basic outlines to shapes and lighting. Good stuff. I also like seeing your thumbnails and will be looking out for updates on some of those.
I'm the same re working on lots of things at once rather than focusing on one project. I get claustrophobic if I don't have at least a couple of other things I can turn to when something isn't going well. I think it's a good way to work, personally.
Interesting approach to digital drawing.
I think thick dark lines tend to flatten and blot out alot of the form and mess with light at an early or layout stage of a painting so I'd be careful with that, though I admit I'm a bit too careful myself and it tends to leave a low contrast look sometimes.
Keep up with the studies, they show much promise and your rendering looks very solid.
@shiNIN lol thanks very much. I don't know if that much variety is good or just because I have no attention span. Some more study/character nonsense. Fixed the colours on the naga for finishing at some point as well.
I'm sure variety is good. It's bad if one rushes them or does overcomplicated them without having any idea about the basics. Your variety isn't like that.
The naga has nice colors, I'm curious how it will develop in the future, now almost the whole figure is in shadow...
I like the torso of the last girl, though her left boob is illogically high, I don't see it's because the arm pushes it higher, it's nice round just too high. The thighs are a bit rough and the shadow of the pearls suggest they are flat. The shadow should curve too. I see some minor things I can't put my finger into it - and a not so minor one. The more visible hand. It's just no good and tiny too.
The gesture is basically very graceful but odd because she can't be balanced considering the position of her thighs.
Despite my problems with it, I like this painting much, it would be cool to see it polished more (well, fixed). I like the coldness/sexyness combo, well maybe I wouldn't call the painting sexy, it's more like beautiful, just slightly erotic due to the feminine curves. I could imagine her being an important person talking to folks in an important meeting in another world, her gesture and naked beauty used to give her speech more impact, lust is nowhere to found.
Maybe I think too much Too bad I write almost as much.
Write as much as you want, it's interesting to read. As for the naga she will be getting rim lighting on both her sides of her figure when I've finished the rest of her, so it's understandable that she looks incorrect at the moment.
With the elf woman I doubt I'm going to change much right now. I did realise that the hand was too small too late, but thank you for pointing it out. I will correct the curve on the shadow of the thigh though, I should have seen that as it's very obvious to me now.
The height of the other breast has to with one being pushed up by the side of the left arm, and the right one being held partially down by the right. So they're both misplaced by a small amount, purposefully. Breasts are very malleable things, they very rarely are matching, even at the best of times.
hey dude, nice sketchbook ! on the last one, i find that the general painting is too light ! on your first step, you should try to better block in the main shapes, just puting 2 values, 1 for light and one for shadow, isn't enough ! try to use 2 values for light and 2 for shadow in order to better block in the volume ! keep it up !!
