Silwynar: Hey! He was done but now that I'm looking at him a month later I'm seeing a lot of things I need to correct, including his nose. Thanks! Also we usually say "caught my eye"
Seage: Thank you! I guess I'm just starting to explore values and composition more
Ceinwen Fang: haha it's okay. Thank you, and you're completely right! I've gained an entirely different understanding of the human face from working on that sculpture.
AdrianNagorski: hahaha you got that right! I have a lot more I need to learn about parenting before I send another one of my kids off to the kiln to be fired. Thank you!
skMOP: Thanks! You're absolutely right about the proportions and the chainmail. I'm seeing so many errors now that I'm looking back at this piece X)
That's okay! Thanks so much for the resource suggestions and the advice! I'm going to consider what you said in this latest piece. I guess we'll see what happens!
Kveldvaahiim: Thank you!!
Hey, guys! sorry for pretty much falling off the face of the earth. I got caught up in some personal things and commissions.
I didn't get the scholarship for RISD Pre-College, but my parents were awesome about it and decided they'd pay for it anyhow. Because I had to reapply for a major, I didn't get into Illustration, but I did get into Painting, so it's all good!
I've been doing a lot of charcoal and graphite work in my figure drawing class. I posted a portrait I did of one of my classmates below, and I'll upload the rest once the school year closes out
So here's the portrait, a rough concept for the Jack (Jacqueline) Black Bloodsport and some Mistborn fan art.

Good to see new stuff from you! Especially your traditionell stuff looks fresh.
In your last painting the man's head looks a bit too big. His size compared to the girl just looks too big.
But that should be easy to fix.
Keep it up!
PS: Just changed my nickname. Nobody could remember Silwynar x_x

skMOP:They're VERY small, because my sketchbook is tiny (around 3x5 I believe) but I definitely have been fighting with myself to use my arm over my wrist, even when using bigger surfaces. It doesn't feel quite natural yet but I'll get there! Thanks
So chilling at RISD pre-college. One week in and I'm drowning in work! Here are two oil still-lives I did in my Painting Major class. These are some of my first attempts using oil, and they're strictly using grayscale.

I have survived RISD pre-college I apologize for the lack of updates. I honestly didn't have time to upload anything let alone sleep. I have quite a lot of work to share which I will gradually begin to post as I photograph them.
All work with color uses colors mixed in a limited palette (usually a primary, raw umber, black, and white). Also, all work below is from direct observation. Paintings are oils, drawings are in ink and charcoal/colored pencil
More work to come!

kevin_: Thanks, I'll be sure to!
MeteorCat: Thank you! I'll hopefully update more regularly again
skMOP: It was incredible. I'm still trying to just digest all the information I received haha
Trying to break back into digital art and what better way of doing that than redesigning my OCs!
I wanted to do a concept that engages the viewer from both the front and back view, so I drew the characters facing opposite directions. I'll most likely add a background as well. For now, rough comp sketches and silhouettes!

Nice sketchbook. There is improvement in your understanding of light and color, that is great.
Keep going with the figure studies, that seems to be one problem that pops up a lot in the work you're showing.
The progression stuff is nice, just don't post too much of it, or it may just look like posting fodder. Might be a good idea to take all your progression shots and put them in a single post, and make other posts with other work done simultaneously.
The acrylic (I believe it was acrylic) painting of the man in the red pettycoat has a major problem with the placement of his left eye (was that intentional? I didn't notice any mention of it being so). If you want to correct it's placement you'll need to repaint it down a bit and closer to the nose.
Perhaps do several more studies like the study you did of the suit of armor, and use what you learn to do another creative piece.
I like the videogame and other cover art repaints that you did, especially the Legend of Zelda one (because it's one of my all-time favorite games!).
Keep posting, post lots more!
