    Shadow Stalker Sorry to hear about all that! Life gets in the way sometimes, just keep going, I'm sure you'll get back into the groove. =)

    Alexanderjr - Thank you. Dunno if I actually paint that quickly, I feel slow compared to a lot of the speedpaint demons around here...

    Hayden_Zammit - Thanks! Androgyny (on both sides, really) is kind of an ongoing issue for me.

    Playing more with throwing colour on greyscale; it's very I Have No Idea What I'm Doing. When I'm doing a real piece, I'll do a very basic greyscale thing before starting to colour, but putting colour on a fully rendered greyscale piece is... generally a bad idea. On the plus side, blowing out the lighting on her cheeks deemphasized the bone structure a bit and I think she's less manly now.

    True story, I was painting my stupid deva character ALL ALONG, I just gave her pupils at the last second because it was for practice and I'm bad at eyes.

    Also, I don't think there's any reason I wouldn't be able to post this... a test piece for Paizo of one of their iconic characters, the cleric.

    Hayden_Zammit - No problem! Honestly, sometimes you can learn just as much from leaving an in-depth critique as you can from receiving one; it's a good reminder to look critically. =)

    Eleyon - Thanks!

    Went AWOL for a couple of days for a trip to Ottawa to visit a friend. (BROOKE I KNOW YOU'RE READING THIS HI BROOKE) Then CA was down last night for some reason? IDK.

    Things.

    Photo study waaaaay out of my comfort zone. I need to work on buildings and stuff like 100x more than I do. Also some interiors maybe? PERSPECTIVE.

    Head study, ugh, THIS ANGLE.

    This is becoming an SB composed entirely of heads. Tomorrow, maybe not a head? Or maybe a head. TUNE IN TO FIND OUT.

    Quickie screencap study from Supernatural. I took a bunch of caps from a couple of episodes, so maybe it'll be this for a few days.

    30 minutes.

    Jamie Romoser - Thanks, not a lot of character designs in here, tho... the one at the top of the page is my drawing, but not my design. I do need to do some more, though, haven't done CHoW in a while. D:

    Another quick SPN screencap.

    25 minutes.

    Yes. Another head study. That's what this SB needed. =|

    I desperately need to do something else. Maybe a more in-depth study, or hell, start on a new illustration...

    Was you friend's character in post#515 supposed to look like a Harry Potter with piercings? Or it's just the glasses that give me this silly thought? I thought I'd pointed out, because if it wasn't the original intention it might be worth to watch out for it.

    I envy how well you understand the planes of the face, but see you take shortcuts with the ear sometimes and it doesn't look right. Your head from imagination in #520 looks referenced, that's the standard I want for myself!

    not the best at crits but maybe you could work on sharpening up your focal points and putting more work into the areas which are of most importance.
    Other then that the studies are looking good Rev keep up the grind

    Leonor - For some reason, those little round glasses can make anybody look like Harry Potter, I think. =) And ears... yeah, you caught me. There's something about ears that just baffles me, no matter how much I study them. So sometimes just throw in a squiggle and hope nobody notices, and even when I don't it tends to go off the rails. As atonement, I did a few ear studies today. Thanks a lot for the comment on facial planes, I've been working on that more than just about anything else, so I really appreciate that!

    GUNNM_nana - Thank you!

    Jamie Romoser - Thanks, you're probably right, I'm not great at controlling space and focus... I'll work on that.

    So, EARS. I hate ears. I really hate ears. Reffed from random DeviantArt stock.

    Great studies. Not overworked, still painterly, looks really good. Do practice your perspective though, it's a good thing to know and be able to use. I just had a week of perspective at school. Not a lot, but you'd be surprised how much one can learn in that time. Even though I knew the theory already, just sitting there and doing some interior drawings taught me a lot.

    AllyAlbon - Thanks a ton!

    razz - Thanks! I did a fair bit of perspective in school, but I've sort of put off going back to it because it's no fun at all. But that's just making lame excuses, you're right, I need to work on it way more - backgrounds/environments are a major weakness here.


    Today I tried to do something that wasn't a head study but it came out awful so I did a head study so I would have something to post that I wasn't embarrassed to show. Welp.

    This is starting to get sad, I need to mix this up.

    Hell yeah they are Nice work.

    In your latest update, the quick figure sketches look better than the average Posemaniacs pageful... because you're drawing real humans, and in each of those little drawings...you've captured the story. 3D models are marionettes, and don't have a story... there's no motivation, their heads are empty.

    Very nice work.

    One more Supernatural screencap study. A couple hours? This one kicked my ass, oh man. Like, over half the time was just painting and repainting his face, over and over.

    Now that I think of it, I did a few studies of Castle's noir pastiche episode, and now I'm a little fixated on Supernatural's similarly styled time travel ep. I think I just find it really interesting how both shows have translated film noir style into colour (or at least aped it liberally, while doing their own thing) by keeping the deep shadows but also going over the top weird coloured, oversaturated light. (Castle went even further, blue rim lighting everywhere.) Actually, in retrospect, Blade Runner was also doing a bit of a noir thing too.

    I need to just straight-up watch more film noir.

    Excellent study. You captured the characters expression really well and I love the lighting on that nose.

    MeteorCat - Thanks a lot, that expression was a serious pain. =D

    Here're a couple of thumbs for a commission I'm doing for a friend. I did studies and some other early stuff for this back in like FEBRUARY, then I got super frustrated with the composition and kept on putting it aside. What you're not seeing here are the dozens of failed thumbs (because they're awful, although not taken nearly this far) or the photos of my poor roommate climbing trees to figure out how you could swing a scythe from one.

    This is definitely showing up in crit centre tomorrow, when I'm awake enough to explain it.

    wutangclam - Thanks! I'm actually 3 years out of art school, heh. I took Illustration at Sheridan College; it was a really good program, but didn't have a huge focus on the more technical aspects of art. (Though I learned a load about composition, idea generation, planning an image, trying new media, the business of illustration, etc, etc.) They weren't super fond of digital work, so I'm basically self-taught on that side of things... I'd love to take more classes somewhere at some point, learning is fun!


    Here's a slightly creepy self-portrait from life; took a couple of hours. I did one a few months back, and remember my parents seeing it and telling me that it was nice, but self-portrait-neutral-face looked really solemn, and why wasn't I smiling? This is an attempt at smiling. I think it's kind of off-putting.

    Nice work on the SP. Your right shoulder (on the left) seems a bit flat in comparison to your left shoulder, which is well sculpted.

    The lighting on the hair seems well done... there's a pink or orange secondary/bounce light source that is nicely depicted.

    Maybe for asthetic purposes you could remove or knock down the glare on the right lens of your glasses so we can see your eyes easier. Good job overall.

    WRappiii - Thanks a lot!

    p sage - Thanks, yeah, now that you point it out, I never really finished that shoulder. The glare on the glasses... I had a hard time dealing with that, because it really was that bright, so knocking it back would mean making stuff up, because I couldn't really see my eye too well through it. =)


    Few arms, ref off mmaphotography.com. (The lack of hands is because of boxing gloves rather than laziness.) Even with 2 anatomy books open in front of me, I still couldn't figure out what was going on with half these muscles, which just proves I need to do a whole bunch more of these, not to mention some careful muscle-by-muscle study...
