What! another Albertan!? So are you at ACAD? Anyways, good work here. You just need to keep plugging away. So far it seems that the folks here have been giving yous some good tips so I won't beat a dead horse and add to it. The best advice I ever got was to finish a piece and move on to the next one. Each piece is a learning experience in itself.
Och, you get to do more watercolours in your college thing? I am being told to day everything BUT. ;A;
When you're there, painting. Think of me as I'm sticking twigs to card with my own tears.
Anyways, think my fave out of that bunch is the middle lad. I enjoy his expression. Tell you what though, can't tell which was the one without refference so that's most likely a sign your anatomy's getting better. Keep up the good work as always, mate.
Naidy: Well, we're doing our grad projects, so we get to pick our mediums. But, uh, have fun with the sticks and the tears? :'C
(Also thank you! That's encouraging to hear.)
Alright, I've got a great big mixed media drawing that is still in progress, an intaglio print, and one I added some watercolour to, and finally the beginning of my final project! I'm painting insects, which I have a ridiculous phobia of. Hopefully I'll get over my fear!
Or have a nervous breakdown. Whichever comes first.
Littlebones: Thanks! Watercolour can be kinda tricky, but it's so relaxing to do once you've got the hang of it.
Tsabu: Eee, thanks!
Mostly original stuff today, some characters sketches that happened mainly becuase I wanted to draw fancy clothes. Coloured one on photoshop for a bit of practice, I still need to work a lot more on digital stuff.
Also a sketch for a class thing that I'm having a bit of trouble with.
And last but not least, some breath-taking gems my friend added to my sketch book while I wasn't looking.
Oh god. Self-conscious Sausage. Can that lad get anymore adorable?
I like the clothes you've fashioned for your people, can't go wrong with poofy sleeves and ribbons.
On the WIP you're doing, just watch out for tiny things; like the right woman's mouth seems to be sliding in some other direction, her upper arms miiiight be a wee bit short too, than that I can't see anything wrong with it. Look forward to seeing it done. Keep up the good work, mate!
Why is it every time I say something like "I'm going to paint this orange as a warm up while I wait for my ground to dry!" I get super invested in it and completely forge about the homework I was supposed to be working on? I KNOW HOW TO TIME MANAGEMENT.
Jeeeesus! How'd I miss on those updates? I can not get over your figures lately. Particularly the ones with Call and his sister, along with the one with Johnny boy on on the couch.
You told me you were going to step up your game with figures and their settings, and it's really showing. Your last face sketches are looking good too. Man, I always come off this sketchbook feeling like I ought to draw. Great, stuff. Mate. Keep up the good work!
howdy! I love your organic lines. my favorite so far is the figures in post #56, as well as the last one in post #109. the right hand, right arm to shoulder and the torso has great sense of volume. I like your style in rendering faces too. Good stuff!
raqmo: Haha, I've been trying hard for volume in my figures, good to know I succeeded at least partially. Thanks! liquorbleu: Oh gosh you are too nice to me :'D Roope Maatta: Really? I don't use anything that soft. I'll have to try it out some time!
And now, on today's episode of Clur's Misadventures in the Land of Watercolour...
