    Kight in his Suzuki

    I have been commissioned to do an oil painting of a young man in his first car, a blue Suzuki. I will try to add some natives into this painting to give it more life than my painting ever had.

    I am thinking a dragon coming after his girl friend in a tower and the young knight coming to her rescue in his blue Suzuki.

    Knight coming in blue Suzuki is a great idea.
    You could add, that the dragon catches the knight,
    and tear his half body through the window and molest
    him in a brutal fashion. Then the knight is still alive,
    but he is suffering. And all this sees the princess.
    Would be a great drama after some silence.
    Fairy stamp is great, I am happy that you sold it.

    Drawing Eyes, Back To Basic

    Lately, I have been drawing a lot of portraits. I have been doing fantasy portraits as well as self-portraits. One of the things I always have been struggling with is drawing the eyes. I am never totally happy with the way I draw them, and I am constantly trying to improve. I find that the eye is the most importuned part of a portrait, because if you get the eyes right, 50 % of your portrait is done.

    When I am drawing or painting eyes from life or a photo like this, I have a reasonable chance of catching the likeness of the person I am drawing, but when it comes to fantasy portraits, where I work from my imagination, I have to put the soul into the eyes of the character myself, and that is when it gets a bit harder.

    I am not a Manga artist, but of cause, I have been studying Manga eyes as well as real eyes. However, I find that Manga eyes are a bit too stylised for the kind of art I do, so how do I come up with something of my own? I decided to go back to basic, to try to look at the way real eyes are constructed. ( I love Manga by the way! I just don't do Manga myself!)

    These eyes are looking marvelous.
    And I just got a feeling that someone is watching me.

    Trying Copic Markers

    I had some new Copic markers and I am enjoying to use them.
    Here are some of the things I did with them so fare. I am so happy to tell that I sold two of the images for a home deco textile company!

    Magical drawings in the wood are looking magical indeed,
    you know how to make everything so nice and colorful.
    Eye drawings are done nicely, but as someone mentioned
    you should watch for proportions. Go for some life drawings,
    measure twice, draw once, I think that could help you a lot
    as for the correct proportions are concerned. You did a neat
    job with the copic markers, very lovely color combinations.
    Maybe if I have to mention some flaws on these, then that
    would be the flatness of them, they look flat. You, should
    think about the objects, head, fish etc. as a round 3D object,
    and try to shade them that way. Draw some boxes and spheres
    from life, watch the shadows and light under different environments.
    I hope that I am helping at least a bit with my confusing advices.
    Generally you are doing great, I am enjoying following your
    workbook Mrs. Marianne.

    Thanks for all the helpful advice, that is why I joined this wonderful forum, to get a useful critique! I am a member of a couple of other art forums, but all I ever get there are people telling me my art is wonderful. I see art as a journey, and I am on a constant travel to get better. Of cause, I am happy when people like my art, but it's not that helpful for improvement.

    I have an ongoing self-portrait project here on CPA, where I try to work on my head proportions http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=220847 Perhaps I should x-post it here in my sketchbook.

    About the Copic markers. You are right the drawings turned out flat. I need to learn to do better values with them. For some reason I find it much more difficult to add values to colored artworks, than I do when I work on my my pencil drawings. Painting and drawing in color is stepping out of my safe zone. I only have a very few Copic markers, so I build the values buy laying the colors on top of each other. I do like to work with them because they blend very well.

    "Draw some boxes and spheres from life, watch the shadows and light under different environments." Good idea!

    Self Portrait 01-09-2011

    Digital self portrait.
    I used photo reference. I didn't trace the photo, I tried to draw the proportion myself by looking closely.

    that self-portrait is really good, though the eyes look a bit unfinished.

    I want to kick those people at your life drawing class with pokers up their arses. Using construction lines is perfectly okay and I bet none of them have sold anything. I actually prefer most of your traditional stuff to the digital. Composition in your oils needs a bit of work on in my opinion, but it looks like you're getting there.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Thanks Black Spot. I love to work in graphite and oil, but the digital medium is very useful for sketching. My life drawing class will start again this month. I will have to take the fight about the construction lines again, because during the summer holidays a few other people have phoned me to say that they want to lean to draw the way I do, so now I got some support!

    How Do I Improve My Fantasy Portraits?

    Whenever I draw portraits only from my imagination, I feel that I am going right back to a point in my drawing skills where I miss drawing the proper proportions of the head. Of cause, you can get away with a lot of distortions in fantasy art, but the portrait still has to be believable.

    I found a video on YouTube where a guy explained how we as humans are stuck with a childhood memory, of how we think the proportion of the human head is. Perhaps that is my problem! Whenever I draw without a reference photo, I go back to my child hood memories and draw how I think the head's anatomy is, and not how I actually know it is.
    Now the question is if I should start to base my fantasy portraits on photo references, or if I somehow can learn to forget my childhood memories. One way to get around this problem is to draw cartoon-like characters in Manga style or the Disney style, but then I feel I lose my own style, so to me that isn't an option.

    I read somewhere that when artists draw a portrait from imagination, they are actually drawing themselves. So perhaps I should base my imaginary fantasy characters on self-portraits? There are two good things about that, there will never be a copyright issue, and I will be able to get reference photos whenever I like. It is easy to change facial features into something different, so I think I will try to do some new Copic Marker fantasy portraits based on self-portraits I have done.

    hey best way to be able to draw a believable portrait from imagination is practice drawing portraits from life over and over again study the face, study how other artists have drawn the face and then keep practicing some more. I like your self portrait those are always good practice. The best way to draw a postrait from imagination is knowing how the structure of the face is, as well as knowing the planes of the face and proportions of the face then when you draw from imagination you can use this information to make the face believable. ( im not an expert in drawing from imagination so take that with a grain of salt)

    Self Portrait 02-09-2011

    digital study. I wanted to draw a side view, to learn to place the ear in the right place. I used less blur and air brush, on this drawing than I did on my last one. I like that there is a bit more texture.
