    Some early thoughts here on the D&D art test, Test 3. (I'm also planning to do the first one, but hey.) Aiming for city guard, but these are just a couple of early iterations; not enough that says "guard" to me yet, as opposed to just a random person. The examples given are so colourful, it's worrisome to try and tone it back a bit, but some earlier attempts at crazy colour schemes lost the look of a uniform. Eh. Hopefully the pose and scene in the final will help sell it?

    Also I was itching to paint a face so I grabbed this one. (This has nothing to do with where I'm actually going with the real picture. I just felt like painting a sour-looking middle-aged woman.) Looking at it now, I botched the light in her cheek area, they're sticking out way too much.

    Gpozzo - Thank you!

    Hayden Zammit - Thanks and you're welcome!

    Soooo I'm kind of unhappy; I had managed to post daily in an unbroken chain since January 1st, and have now missed two days running. Being too sick to get out of bed is a pretty good excuse, but still. Feels bad, man.

    More or less okay now, though, poking away at the D&D Art Test stuff again. A couple more (fairly bad) iterations, and then what is probably my final design.

    Struggling with the colours. The references provided are super colourful, but they read like a nobleman and a caster of some sort, wheras I imagine a city guard uniform would be a lot more, uh, uniform. Not sure whether I went too crazy with colours, or not crazy enough, who knows. May change my mind about everything tomorrow.

    I have no idea why I started painting it up when this is just for my own reference, the final will be a different drawing in a proper composition. I... felt like it, I guess.

    Bluh bluh Drawing Script. 60s/90s/120s. I really need to start doing some longer ones, 2 minutes max is good for a warmup, but less good when I never do any studies between that and a full-on painting.

    again your gestures are looking solid! i feel so lazy everytime i see you update with them D: *goes to do some gestures*
    also like the guard designs! only thing i notice is the arms feels a little short.

    rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks! Not sure if you're right about the arms, or if it's an illusion caused by the fact the legs are sort of crazy long. (I realized pretty late in the game that she was over eight heads high, but didn't make much effort to fix it since it's just a design thing.)

    Some clothing study things from the Sartorialist!

    TO DO: Shoe studies. Ancillary to do: go through this SB and find a list of all these studies I said I was going to do and/or people suggested I do and then actually do them.

    The plan was to draw a bunch of torsos from memory but most of them sucked and then I got sidetracked and I accidentally a deva. My fixation on a semi-obscure proprietary D&D race continues.

    Look I had a bad day don't judge me.

    Also tomorrow (or soon) is torso studies but not from memory, because I have realized that I do not understand them nearly as well as I thought.

    Hey Rev, Thanks for stopping by my SB. So far so good, keep up the studies and I'm enjoying the D&D art test stuff. I might just throw my hat into the ring on that one too.
    Good Stuff!

    kuumehike - Thank you very much!

    Wheeljack18 - Thanks! If you do the art test, you should check out the challenge version of it on the ArtOrder blog. =)


    No torsos today, instead progress on the art test! I usually don't post ref unless it's myself, but I got permission this time. Ref photo is my friend Aggy who is a super good sport and even provided her own stunningly appropriate boots from an old cosplay.

    MeteorCat - Thanks! The floor might be changing a lot, actually, because it's sort of overtextured and has kind of a bird poop thing going on.

    UPDATE, hardly had a chance to work on this today, deadline inc, aaaaaaaa.

    The fabrics look wonderful, and I agree with Psychobuddy about the shield. Now we can really admire your cloth/drapery work

    Psychobuddy - Thanks! Heh, I dropped the shield after Artfix in the crit forum pointed out that you couldn't actually fight with a poleaxe and a shield at the same time. Which is... pretty obvious, in retrospect. =|

    MeteorCat - Thank you! The drapery was fun.


    Okay, no studies today, just a sketch that I needed to get out of my system. One D&D campaign recently ended, my character died, but that was actually a good thing? It's a very long story.

    I really like his hair and the expression on his face. Perhaps you could add a few more lines on his face to push the drama even more

    MeteorCat - It's actually supposed to be a woman, haha. Albeit a woman with intentionally strong/somewhat masculine features, so I'm not too fussed. I always described her as more handsome than pretty.


    Some 3-minute noses off some heads from the Drawing Script, which seems to have gone down? I dunno, I was going to do a few more, but the site died suddenly. Hopefully it'll be back soon.

    I still don't really get noses, but I'm not sure how much value there is to drawing them in isolation like this, as they're kind of the central feature to the face and have so much interaction with everything around them.

    Avengers midnight showing omg.

    Now it is super late, here is a quick few 45s and 60s off the Drawing Script for the sake of something to post before I crash. Going out of town for a couple of days (TCAF!) and so have no idea if my daily posting will be possible between now and Sunday. WE'LL SEE.

    Back after a couple of busy days in Toronto! TCAF was a good time, and I finally dragged my butt down to Labrynth to pick up Michael Hampton's figure drawing book (which is amazing).

    Here's some people from Friday/Saturday/Sunday - bus station/cafe/subway/other bus station. Ballpoint pen.

    rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks, as I've said before, my rare traditional drawings are usually ballpoint, so they tend to have a similar look.

    sammfshields - Thanks a ton!

    Gestures, different style than usual. (Drawing Script, mostly 60s.) Like I said yesterday, picked up Michael Hampton's book, and I'm gonna try just working through it. While I tend to think about the structure of gesture drawings, the final result tends to be more contour-y than anything, so this is a nice change.
