Jam.00 - Thanks! That's really good to hear, I've been trying to work on proportions! (:
Iristhevirus - Thanks! I plan to, and that's really lovely to hear =D
Feeling very motivated right now! Haha! Expect to see assignment three, in a few hours time!
Okay here's the progress on assignment 3: Draw a self portrait from life using a mirror..
I have done the line work, and blocked in some basic light and dark, I'm using strong directional lighting from the right.
Next step, start the tonal values!
Thanks Smile! =D If you insist ;P
Here's the finished self portrait using a mirror.. It doesn't come out as nice in photos as it looks in real life!
Oh hi there (: It's me again!
Just a painting I did for teen challenge/my own pleasure
I used a ref for the plane, but the girl was all from my head!
Nice job on the self portrait, a minor crit on the ww2 plane painting is that the colors of seem a bit too isolated I think it would look a lot more natural if there was a color that permeated the whole painting to harmonize everything, a simple way to do this is just use the photo filter in photoshop and tweak it until you like the outcome.
Splode - Thank you so much! I've never thought of doing that before and it makes such a dramatic difference! I played a little bit and applied a sepia filter, and I feel it really fits the picture! I'll definitely remember that tip!
In case you were interested:
Hey guys (: Just a quick 3am, drawing in the dark, sketch ;P
Be back later!
Hey again (:
Sorry I've been a bit slow updating, I've been working on a CHoW entry which I will share once the week's over, for now here is a 10 min doodle I did during my lunch break at uni! No ref was used this time (:
Also I will upload some negative space drawings I've been doing for this weeks uni assignment tomorrow (or later today actually as it's 3am where I am!)
I popped in the current ChoW topic and ended up here.
It seems you are a hardworking one (even if you have fun ) who takes drawing seriously... I'm amazed how you draw zillion little details, maybe it's not magical but I never do that, I'm too lazy/blocked I guess. But I don't want to talk about me... The girl in your last drawing is very stiff, especially her shoulders and I think her hips should be a lil bit wider, she's a woman, after all.
The self portrait is impressive, the top of the head seems too small, maybe it was the fault of the angle you viewed but it still looks a bit odd. Apart from this, I like it a lot.
shiNIN - Thanks for dropping by and commenting (: I will definitely bear that in mind if i continue with the sketch, it was mostly just a doodle, which i'm unlikely to revisit!
Today is just another sketch, no ref, just a sci-fi superhero from a little story i got going (: Enjoy!
Hey CA, I'm-a-back! Anyways, sorry I disappeared once again, uni workload is hectic as, and I'm still getting used to it! I suppose I've got quite a lot to upload! I'll start with the coloured superhero sketch I did ages ago and upload in chronological order since then!
I like your design of a superhero, but it needs some work on anatomy. Check out Andrew Loomis (you can get him of the Internet for free) Bridgeman or Hoggart. Your characters need some volume. Try sketching them out as 3d objects rather than flat shapes. When you start studying anatomy you'll also get the foreshortening and perspective which are apparent in your characters outstretched hand.

Thanks Sarmati (: I've been meaning to check that out, I've done lots of life studies since then, which I'll upload, hopefully I've improved a bit!
Next things I'm gunna show you are:
1)My entry which I didn't get the chance to upload due to internet issues for the 'Horrible Experiments' CHoW.. Yes it's a horrible image, that was the brief!
2)an anatomy study I found from about 6 weeks ago!
3) Next Are the first of some life drawings from a class at college
Moving swiftly onward :
4) a series of 3-5 min rough life sketches of my boyfriend
5) A quick character doodle
6) The next session of life drawing, Male model this time, which I found much more challenging!
Also Just a few more things I forgot:
7) Negative Space drawings
8) Perspective study of railings
9) Visuals for my studio design project (Photoshop)
Your life drawings are amazing - you have made so much progress, it's not true.
The visuals are stunning too. You've actually caught Noel Fielding's likeness very well! The way you have played with lights and reflection is really impressive
Your "horrible experiments picture is one of the best digital paintings (if not THE best) that I've seen you do. I can't think of any suggestions for improvement!
Heya, Here's today's helpings, a couple of perspective studies (:
Dom - That's really sweet, I'm so pleased my progression shows, I'm feeling a lot more confident! Still a load more photo studies, and life studies in photoshop would help as well i'm sure!
Hey, long time no see..
Sorry I've totally abandoned this, I've been crazy busy at uni, and now i'm home for Christmas, I should probably catch up!
First things first, I'd like to ask your advise on a current WIP, I'd really like to try and boost the realism, but I don't know where to start! Should there be deeper shadows? More variety in tone? Please let me know!
PS. Hope you had a good Christmas
also here are couple more set visuals from my course at uni, this time for a day time antiques show (:
Massive improvement on the chin!! The only thing to me that looks a teeny bit off is the neck - just seems sliiightly too thin - and I know you've not added any shading yet, but don't forget there will be the wrinkles from the point at which it's turned over her shoulder and a couple of folds of skin where it's twisted
Also, not so much an improvement but rather a suggestion - would she have any bubbles coming out from her nose too? just a couple of tiny ones maybe? Not sure..just a thought!
Okay, so I've been pretty awful with this while I've been at uni, but it's been genuinely upsetting that I haven't had the time to practice much.. Still it's my lent challenge to attempt to get back into regular drawing! I'll do my best here, but currently my camera is broken and my scanner is only a4, and some of my work is bigger, but I'll figure it out!
Anyways I guess I start with some very rough composites/photo paintovers I've been playing with to try and work out set design concepts for my uni course.
Also another thing of interest might be these concepts for Gandalf's workshop.. Here's the original and the painted one in progress...
Me again (:
This time with a story board.. I have two more of these but they're a pain to upload, so I may or may not get round to putting them up!
study of a male face.. I think it was from a magazine
Quick Thumbnails of Environments.. done with a soft pencil
latest digital paint, used a ref for the figure, took 3 and a half hours
The arms, especially her right one should have get more care, it gets much attention and it's very sketchy, the body is way better rendered.
I like Gandalf's workshop
Thanks shiNIN, Yeah I agree the arms are rushed, I was much more pleased with the lower half of the body!
Thanks, I'm proud of the Gandalf piece (:
