So I watched one of Dave Rapoza's live stream recordings on his YouTube channel, the one where hes painting a knight. Well I thought I would take this same loose approach he did. I discovered that all this time I have been....."Draw-Painting" and not "Painting"
It's hard to explain in words. It's as if I render the same way I draw, very technical and almost forced, resulting in very cartoony renderings which I don't like. I thought that maybe I needed to push my rendering more. The problem lies in my method of rendering.
SO! I took about 30 minutes to try something out. This is what I came up with.
I didn't want to go for a typical hideous goblin look, but more of a cleaner version just to test this method out. I will explore this further.
Hey man, just wanted to say I really appreciate all the stuff you do for CHOW, I'm sure you devote many hours that could otherwise be spent on your own art, and a lot of people benefit from it. I'm sure you don't get thanked enough so thank you!
Thanks Gutsworth, that means a lot. I love running the ChoW show and at times it is very overwhelming especially when I have to make the big "decisions" on the polls, but overall I find it gratifying that people enjoy the topics as much as they do.
Thanks Chevy, that makes me feel great, I think your work is amazing too. As for studies, well I have a whole folder of them that I just never posted on here, lol and I have a full 60 page sketchbook just chocked full of sketches, studies, and notes. Not to mention a nice stack of printer paper with sketches on it! However, I really should do more... In my last class I took, which was water color, I had a lot of studies from that too.
Thanks for stopping by!
