    Really nice job. He is drawn very well (so no crits there). I like the loose paint style going on.

    Merē.Jorg - Thanks a bunch!

    I think I'm finally getting back into the groove! A few 90secs from the Drawing Script.

    I'm calling this one done in an "I'm sure it still has problems but it's time to move on" sort of way.

    I'm sure that now I've said that I'll see something I completely missed and just have to fix. Derp.

    I do this quite a lot too. Good job pushing it as far as you did.

    MeteorCat - Maybe everybody does. Letting go can be hard, eh? =)

    Posting for yesterday super late again, today's actual post will be up later. I could post them both together, I guess, but it's the principle of the thing.

    Lifedrawing yesterday - I ended up not leaving enough time to go home and get supplies, so I had to draw with what I had on me, my tiny sketchbook and ballpoint pen. Ballpoint is an... interesting medium for longer drawings.

    Nice updates! I especially like #451. The mood of it is really cool, and so is his hair.

    Shadow Stalker - Thanks! Well, uh, here's some more of it.

    Poked at this a little more, to make it less of a sketch and more of a finished thing... mostly wanted to clarify the masklike look of his face. (Man, there's so little good ref for 4th-ed style Revenants... yes, if I wasn't clear, I am drawing my D&D characters again.) Also, let's be honest, I never pass up an opportunity to paint hair.

    Hey there
    Been lurking in your sketchbook quite often now, so I thought I should leave a note
    You've improved quite a bit! I like those colour studies you do a lot, and the characters paintings look very well too. I espevially like the red haired girl with the belly dancer outfit, she's got great flow, mood and expression. I also like how smooth your brushwork looks.
    One thing that I noticed is that the perspective in your portraits seems to be slightly off. Something I'm still struggling with as well. So I try to draw in my perspective lines and sometimes I also draw a little cube beside the head to remind me of the perspective I'm about to draw. Maybe that might help you out too?
    Just keep up the hard work, you're doing great

    comicbookfreak - Thanks... no idea how to even go about doing a livestream, honestly I think I'd be to self-conscious to draw with people watching; I fight gestures every step of the way as it is. =)

    Nele Klumpe - Thanks! I really like your SB a lot, appreciate the comments... I can see what you mean about the portrait perspective. I'd spent quite a while focusing on getting head proportions down and getting them to work in 3D, but I let that slip for a while and I think I'm falling back into old habits; thinking about the proportions, but not about how it fits in space. I WILL WORK ON THIS.


    Starting in on a new pic, veeeeery early stages, but had a fun reference shoot. Thanks to Eric and Aggy who are super good sports about taking stupid photos.

    Didn't even try to post yesterday, due to the image servers apparently losing their mind, but I worked on this a bit. And again today!

    Maybe putting it aside for a couple of days. The colours are starting to feel really muddy, and the background needs... something. It feels very empty, but I don't want to add detail for its own sake. Gotta figure out something that adds to the composition/storytelling.

    Also, weird proportional issues, despite having reference. I gotta, uh, reference more.

    Hayden_Zammit - Wash is the best; Serenity still wrecks me every time. Thanks, I don't do enough of those studies these days.


    Revisiting this, because a) it was originally a sketch that got out of hand, and upsizing it so I can actually print it means a bit of repainting, b) she was constantly mistaken for male when I uploaded it elsewhere and I'm trying to make that a little more clear, and c) shoulders?

    Probably needs one more pass. Still a little rough around the edges, and still trying to find ways to clarify her gender in the face without losing the ugliness of the expression - looks a lot more female when I smooth out the lines, but then it starts to come off as a sexy look, which is 100% not the point. I think I've already lost some of what I liked about it, blah.

    aks9 - Thank you! =D

    More of this. I feel like the difference between this and the last progress shot is barely discernable, despite the fact I've worked on it quite a bit. Drow dude's mouth and chin are still seriously wrong, no matter how many times I repaint them. I'm gonna be fighting this one all the way, I think.

    ALMOST DONE. Just need to detail the background a bit more and clarify the armour a little. I like it way more than I did yesterday, and I think 90% of that is just changing that hairstyle.

    I have to say that the character being choked has an incredible expression which you captured brilliantly in her eyes.

    Maann, that's a kickass illustration. I love the tension in it.

    Your figures are really nice and the colors are kickass too!

    A bit of nitpicking would be that the hands could probably use a bit more work. Some subtle variation in gesture maybe? If you cover your hand over your face, the fingers would be quite different because of the uneven surface.

    MeteorCat - Thanks! That's all out of the ref, great acting out of my friend.

    Pete Hidalgo Thanks, no idea how long it actually took... I'm gonna guess around 10 hours, give or take.

    liquorbleu - Thank you!

    Aaron_ - Thanks a ton. =) I shot ref for it, and the hands are right out of that; that actually is how a hand looks like over somebody's face. I don't think I have the guts to mess with it and try to make it up; I'd probably make it worse rather than better. Thanks for the crit, all the same.

    I straight-up forgot to post yesterday. I did plenty of art, just didn't put it up! Oh well, here's a couple of things.

    I'm finally calling this done! The change from the last iteration is EXTREMELY minor (almost entirely background stuff) but here's the final for posterity.

    And this is what I was doing yesterday and today. I did something for the D&D art test before, when it was an ArtOrder challenge, but the actual art test is still going, so... I've improved since then and wanted to take a shot at the orc one anyhow. I dunno how I feel about this! I really like how it's coming out, but I'm trying so hard for a consistent portfolio and something about this feels really... not me. I don't know how something I did, the same way I do everything else, can feel not my style, but maybe it's just that I don't tend to draw this character type, and the lighting is exaggerated even by my standards.

    What great lighting and perspective in your progress piece, I believe you are capturing it just right! I really enjoy the diagonal angle that draws the viewer in, it makes us feel the overall tension of the scene. I also really enjoy the stone architecture in the background.. it's has just enough detail so that it isn't distracting, and compliments the figures to make them feel real in their space. Really nice work!

    Hey Rev! ^_^

    Really great work as usual, that art test looks sweet, the only thing, in the knife piece, is the guys left arm, the one holding the other guy, is it long, or is that just me?

    MrFrenik - Thanks a lot!

    Alunite - Thanks so much, I really appreciate the in-depth comment. =)

    kevin_ - Thank you! Working hard!

    Psychobuddy - Hallo! Thanks! The arm... it's hard to say, I think it's fairly true to the ref, but the friend who posed is lanky as all hell, so with the added bulk of the armour... yeah, it might have ended up a bit too long. Probably botched the elbow. I'll take another look at it. =)



    I've been really bad at this whole daily posting thing the past little bit, haven't I? I think it's because so much of the past few months has been drawing daily for the sake of the daily post, but since I've just been CONSTANTLY ARTING the SB slips my mind. This is probably a good thing in the long run, but still, title says daily, should be daily.

    Ah well, heading to GenCon in a few days, and there'll be a whole week of no posts.

    I'm calling this done for now. (Art test!) I might come back to it if I get the chance and/or come up with something to stick on top of his cloak thing. I kept trying to put an animal skull on there, but it just never looked right with this lighting setup.
