Rev needs to draw more - AND SHE'S BACK!
Hey all, finally getting up the nerve to start one of these. I'm Rev, a.k.a. Kim Sokol, theoretically an illustrator. I finished art school (Sheridan College, Illustration program) a couple of years ago, and after spending ages trying to promote myself in the editorial style I left school with, I've realized that's not really where my heart is. So back to basics, trying to put together a digipaint/fantasy portfolio. That, and I'm suddenly realizing how shaky I actually am at those basics. This needs to change!
EDIT FOR 2012! I'm trying to post something every single day this year. Go to page 3 or 4, especially since I had to get rid of everything in this post to replace the thumb.

Still can't be assed to scan and post all my gestures and studies and things (Loomis today!) but here's some other stuff?
Current WIP. Got some crit in the crit section. He will soon be clothed once more.
Photo study. Didn't really count the time, guessing 3 hours-ish. Original photo by Bugidifino, gorgeous stock.

I am an art noob, but these studies are so neat and clear especially the first one is awesome. I want moreee.

Thanks, mosishmon! Aaaaa, my first comment. D:
Not a lot of art time over the past couple of days. Painting - the kind with rollers on a wall - is hard work. But now I have a living room the colour of Kraft Dinner, so all is well.
I thought I'd be done this thing by now. Man, I need to work on eyes. I suck at eyes. Facial proportions, aaargh. What is it about uploading stuff that suddenly makes me notice a million mistakes? Why could I not see this stuff in Photoshop 10 minutes ago?
Progress and reference on the elf.

I've never done much in the way of environments - hell, backgrounds - before. I know it's a huge weakness, but it's such a big topic, I haven't really known how to even start with something as simple as studies. I know how to construct a face or a figure, but where do you start with an environment? Today, I watched a couple of Feng Zhu videos - this one and this one - and had a huge moment of OH, OKAY, then went off and did these photo studies. (Ref from National Geographic.)
Requisite figure study and elf progress.

BlightedArt - Thanks! I actually went a really long time hardly ever doing studies, using minimal reference, but the SBs here have inspired me to get going on that. It's working!
Amarok - Thanks!
Nuked Tofu - Thanks a lot, and yeah, the videos are great. His whole channel's pretty awesome, actually, full of great inspiration.
Really wasn't feeling the figure studies yesterday. Fighting them all the way.
And here's the beginnings of a character concept for this week's CHoW. This is the sort of sketchbook stuff I don't normally post anywhere... it's just a brain dump, not really meant for public consumption. But hey, what the hell.

That armor is really progressing! Are those textures that you made? Your sketchbook is great, just to see how you think. Is the silhouette thing something they teach in art school? It seems to come up a lot on CA...
