hey nice sb you got going nice 3d and texturing that stuff kills me also i like your pen sketches good line and composition maybe try some more tonal stuff and post more keep working hard and good luck on becoming the artist you want to be. just work your ass off and the talent will show through the hard work... and over analyzing can be good just learn from the analyzing and try not to drive yourself crazy =]
"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
I keep wanting to put a wash of vivid watercolor over my line drawings. I'll do it soon.
Right now between 3d work, and the three day a week life drawing class, my time is all gone. Next semester, once I'm past the beginning drawing classes, we'll get to play with more color there too, so I gather.
/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
Hey your anatomy is just getting better and better! You improve so fast! I love your more graphic linear drawings, but your grasp on tone is enviable as well! You really are fantastic at drawing, so don't give up you have a ton of potential! If you wanna do gestures outside of class www.posemaniacs.com has some great tools for 30sec drawings and the like Your faces are a very good start for someone who hasn't done them before! My only comment would be watch the angle of the eyes, I have personally found that with a 3/4 view often it's easy to draw the far eye to high on the face Anyways overall I wanted to say that your work has incredible progress and you should keep doing what you love cause you're very good at it!
Your contour line drawings have such a magical feel to them. They stir something emotional in me, so I have to say that I like those pieces the best. The technical drawings, like the skeleton, are incredibly rendered which I suppose is related to your engineering background. Your life drawings are really coming along well, too!
nice stuff man, a piece of advice if i may. I would tell you to try and keep an eye open for the line that crosses the eyes make sure they both cross that and also try and not make them to close to one and other, i am referring to your pencil portrait sketches.
yes, I am total noob to drawing faces. Yet to take a portrait drawing class. We did some head and facial feature construction in my life drawing class, but it was a short summer class, so we only spent day on it at the most. Hopefully next semester I'll have time to take a portrait drawing class and make time to practice it
looks like a hell of a challenge you have set your self, good luck! Would it not be better to place all the dark values in first to then see how the image flows?
I always find myself going detail to general instead of general to detail first- working the entire painting at once to see how it harmonises into an image, if you see what I mean
Wow, your 2D work is coming along very nicely. It's amazing to me that you were creating such incredible 3D clothing before you began on your 2D art fundamentals, but you must just have a crazy genious brain or something. I've never been able to wrap my brain around 3D modelling, but your stuff makes me wish I had a more computer-y mind.
My 'path' has been kind of odd, I spent last 20 years being a civil engineer, and in the course of that I became good with CAD and 3D programs and hard surface modeling.... (my family made me become an engineer instead of a 'starving artist' *sigh*) in last few years I decided to ditch that and follow what I always wanted to do, which is artistic stuff, which is kind of how I fell into making add-ons for DZ products.
That's a really cool story. Your 3D images are gorgeous.
