    some stuff from today for youuuuuu
    Got back into toned paper , yey.How could I not after seeing for the 100th time Donato Giancola's stuff...daaaaaamn the guy rocks

    haven't slept yeey
    Here's what I was doing through the night.
    finished the dragon thing (came out waay too contrasty as always...damn.)
    Although , I am not extremely happy with the painting , it felt like a huge leap forward.One of the most obvious things for me was that I started painting without zooming in all the time.Most of the time I was far away , which was extremely hard for me.



    the sketch I did beforehand



    close-ups





    I also did another re-do of an old painting.This time a lot quicker and dirtier. 2-3hours max.

    That blue face guy really stands out ! The tiny specular highlights really make his skin look detailed. And the spiky jaw thing hahaha. I really like that one. C:

    Quiet Pyre - Thank you! It seems like a lot of people like that guy.The weird thing is I don't find him that good looking



    Yey! Today was a really produvtive day, even though I got up at like 9:30 am and didn't start working 'till 11 'o clock.I managed to take out a big out of my commission stuffs and as a reward I did a lot of studies and experiments.

    started with three 20 min still lifes to warm up ( I had to make up most of the lighting , since it was a creepily gloomy morning...everything greeey ) , not sure about the headphones , maybe I'll blow itout into a more detailed thing , but I haven't decided yet.Probably gonna leave it like that.







    so here's the sketchbook stuff - hands , faces and poses - some of them from reference , most of them from mind















    I tried a new style of studying - doing the preliminary sketch and colors from photo reference , and after the basics are down go your own way.It's really fun!
    Experimenting with textures and going for color



    I went through Bumskee's sketchbook again ( I'll never get tired of it ) and I decided to try and do one of these.Great practice.





    and a 1 hr sketch to let some steam out.Trying to put some texture in my work for a change.I've always been working with mostly the hard round brush and always smoothing things over.Figured I was missing out on something and I waaaaas Everything today I did with almost no zooming in and it feels GREAT!

    You've got nice sense of color (I like the dragon art) and values, just keep practicing anatomy more! Cheers!

    your figures are getting really solid man, the only thing i see you miss sometimes is balance and proportions you go all wacky, and while that is not bad do keep it under control, i would love to see you do some perspective studies, but dont do JUST that or you will bore yourself to death, mix it up i guess some still lifes are still missing here, and some life stuff! other than that Incredible hard work! i will wait for youre next drawings patiently!

    good luck and work your ass off!

    my sketchbook! Drawing like a maniac!!

    Destroy your weaknesses! theres nothing more to it! stop bitching grab that pencil and sketch Away!

    ezekrialase - Thank you for the comment!Yeah, I just have to buckle down and do what I have to do... and listen to some nice music while doing it

    Seraph Fawkes - Heh, glad you like it. Yeah, my anatomy has always sucked.Trying to kick my ass with poses...

    lionheartGFX - Thank you!Awesome crit, man! and you're so right, my poses always look wanky.I think I need to draw some more from photos and life, rather than only from mind.

    a friend drew me one of these -> :3 <- , but sort of made it like a bear, so I played around with it a bit.We called it care-gollum, because it looks creepy but he cares
    I'm experimenting with the smudge tool.This was mostly done by putting down color with a brush with no opacity dynamics and then spreading with the smudge tool with a scatter brush.



    and here's some sketches

    Okay, well at first it was supposed to be a speed painting of a flying chick in a random background, but i kinda got way into the background...so yeah

    It was pointed out to me that it looked a bit like Noah Bradley's painting, that was not my intention at all , I didn't even think of it that way until someone told me.

    anyway, it took about 3-4 hours, I hope you like it




    and the steps I could gather...didn't really think ahead, sorry

    Love this last painting, the lighting on the clouds is so dramatic! Did you use reference?

    ezekrialase - almost no reference at all!(I'm kinda proud of that ) used only for the waves and some of the lighting situations
    I really don't know whose are these, I just googled stuff

    These were all done today, I don't believe it either But yey Productivity boost

    sketches I didn't bother to put in any particular order, so yeah : almost all heads are from head, except for Eddard Stark ( try to find him! ), poses from mind and hogarth, hands from life and from hogarth, skulls from photos









    1hour still life of my IBM coffee mug



    20 min still life of Bob with some random on top of it



    1hr 30 mins still life of a wine bottle on my desk ( trusty companion after a finished painting ), perspective is so shitballs on this :X



    and a supermegacrazy random 3 hr portrait



    bleh that's it , tomorrow more
