    jablar - You are 110% correct, see previous comments re: eyes and how I hate them. Thanks for the comment!

    Just a handful of 45s Drawing Script poses today. Very few, really. A lot of times when I don't start drawing for the day 'til like 3 AM, it's entirely my own fault, but occasionally I legitimately don't get the chance until just before bedtime. Today was one of those days! It has been a very long day and I am falling asleep at my keyboard.

    Wonderful studies! I really liked seeing the self-portrait side by side, great improvement. The only crit I can really give is that you might want to try and vary up your faces a bit more, they tend towards the pointy-nosed, sharp-jawed type. I think we all have this personal idea of what "beautiful" is and design according to that, which can have us retreading the same ground without thinking about it.

    CKLamb - Thanks! Yeah, not nearly enough face variation... less because of what I think looks good (I love, for example, drawing big beaky noses, and yet never seem to?), and more because I'm still trying to figure out facial structure, so it tends to default to very basic structures. I'll work on it!

    Cross_Faith - Thank you!

    Photo study, a couple of hours. I've been wanting to do a study from this photo for ages, and for the stupidest reason - I love that big streak of reflected light on his face. That's seriously why.

    Had fun with the drapery here, almost wishing I hadn't cropped it now.

    Thank you, MeteorCat!


    I keep complaining about eyes, lately. Time to do something about it! I've grabbed a whole bunch of eye crops off The Big Picture and In Focus and I'll probably be doing these for the next couple of days. (I'm always iffy about using non-stock for studies when it's people, but a) these are really small crops, and b) photojournalism is a way better place to find different ages/races/etc than Deviantart stock, my usual go-to.)

    As testament to how much I'm struggling with eyes - I've been posting lots of screencap studies and the like, whole colour scenes done in 40 or 50 minutes. These tiny greyscale studies were like 15-20 minutes each. =|

    Lux_Aeterna - Thank you very much! Haha, the main difference is that 260 is an embarrassingly bad painting from imagination, while 261 is a half-decent painting from screencap ref.


    Eyes, eyes forever. I actually got halfway through a 4th one but I cannot stay awake any longer. This week has been upsettingly unproductive; Monday's a nice fresh start, let's get some finals going!

    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.
