    I had a moment of "how do I folds" so I did a few studies from The Sartorialist.

    And a bit more progress on my Deva lady. I'm still trying to figure out what the hell to do with her headpiece; no design foresight here, whoops.

    Deva progress. The lighting was really flat and boring so I tried to drama it up.

    Some friends and I are doing a crafty-type secret Santa thing. I'm banking on the friend this is for not knowing or caring about this SB, and on the off chance she does, pretending she did not see this.

    She wanted Doctor Who and owls. I intend to deliver. (I want to do all 3 new series doctors, but we'll see if there's time.) The final will be in watercolour, which I haven't touched in far too long...

    This is how I spent my day - not sure on the actual hours, guessing 10 or 11? I've been wanting to do a study from this picture for ages, so many neat textures. Learned a lot about painting fur!

    Thanks so much for all the comments, responding individually tomorrow, promise! (I... I really should go to bed.)

    I keep doing this thing where I get really enthusiastic and post here several days in a row, and then just drop it for weeks. I wish I could claim it's just posting, but there's been a bit of that with art in general, which is just 100% not acceptable. I'm thinking my new years resolution should be to post something here every single day (that I'm physically capable of doing so). A couple of years ago, I did a similar, though more directed, project. I need to sit down in the next few days and really look at my art goals for the year. I want this to be the year that I get illustration work. I can't afford to let these things slide anymore.

    That said, here's a couple of things. I also have some subway sketching and lifedrawing that I can post tomorrow, when I've gone back home post-holidays and have access to my scanner once more.

    Deva progress. This is honestly the only thing I've put real time into over the holidays, even if it's often just working, reworking, and redoing the same areas over and over until I like them.

    Random study; I've been doing a lot of blending with Photoshop CS5's mixer brushes and I really like them, so I wanted to see if I could do a full painting (or in this case full quick study...?) with just those. Sources say yes, and I think I love them even more now.

    Hello there Revidescent,

    Love your studies, the viking man is especially awesome.

    I learned a lot by surfing trough your Skb, thank you for linking all that youseful information. Makes me want to be more diligent about my referencing.

    Good luck with your resolution, keep posting!

    PROPER REPLIES. Uh, thanks to everybody who said they liked the viking study; I was really happy with it and I appreciate all the feedback. =D

    WarmSoda - Haha, no trade secrets or anything. If I'd not waited 2 weeks to reply, I could have given a more specific explaination, but from what I remember, it was mostly use of very soft texture brushes to build up the general forms, combined with the mixer brush tool to pull out the little individual strands, and a lot of patience.

    lemming-clone - Thank you, been working on colours... need to pay more attention to colour theory, heh.

    Dark Eyes - Hey, thanks a ton, happy super late holidays! (New year? Happy new year.)

    Tea of Doom - Thanks man, I'm a bit of a compulsive linker, so it's nice to know somebody's actually using them. =D


    Here's one from imagination trying to see what I learned from yesterday's study. Near as I can tell, what I learned is that I need to do more studies, facial planes ugh.

    And here's some stuff from when I was in the Toronto area over the holidays. Lifedrawing, first off... oh man, while I'm grateful to have at least a little local lifedrawing here in Kingston, I had forgotten the difference an actual lighting setup and a professional model can make.

    I think I'm FINALLY done this... it feels really overworked, but I'm generally happy with it. I'll have to take another look at it in the morning, though, might end up tweaking it just a tiny bit more. (I'm still not quite convinced that her hand/arm is connected to shoulder properly, despite the fact I used reference... the ref was a webcam shot, so my attempts to compensate for camera distortion might have messed things up a bit.)

    Thanks for checking out my SB. I am in love with the viking from #63 and I really like the female profile you did with the CS5 mixer brushes. Very cool stuff, looks like you have a good grasp on textures and proportions. Inspiring for sure!

    Great paintings and studies! That exercises you did with the head with two traced two referenced and two from imagination was very cool and I am stealing it!

    The paintings where there is a lot of light look a lot better than the darker ones so I would say do more darker ones and do more studies with moody lighting.

    Thx for dropping by!

    Your values and hues in your studies are spot on!
    But when you draw from head you tend to flatten your values down. It's probably because you keep the light source pretty vague and "universal".
    Also try not "snap" the heads into certain angles just because you might be more comfortable painting that specific angle. It ends up ruining the harmony of the facial features if that makes any sense^^
    On a minor note, don't be afraid to play around with saturation a bit more.
    Your shadows often tend to be the same saturation as your mid tones with can look muddy.
    Hope that helps!

    Blarrrr, I posted this last night right before bed, OR SO I THOUGHT, but apparently it timed out or something. I'm only annoyed because of the post-every-day resolution... I suppose it's not a strike against me so long as I tried. =P Today's post will be... later... today.

    Whirly - Thanks! Moody lighting it is, time to break out the Blade Runner studies.

    Xelar - Thanks so much for the crit, you're dead on about the heads; one of the reasons I've been trying to do more studies lately is that I keep finding myself getting more and more entrenched in bad habits. =) All very good stuff to keep in mind.


    I haven't posted an update on the poker commission in like a month, and I decided to redo all the figures from scratch because they were looking sort of annoyingly stiff. The far right figure is referenced now, and it looks so much better that I don't think I have any excuse not to reference the rest in some way. Also, the chair perspective is really, really not working at the moment.

    This has all sorts of problems, mostly just trying to loosen up:

Views: 1015
Size:  124.5 KB

    I took over 100 screencaps of Blade Runner (which I've been meaning to do anyway, but was reminded to by the "practice moody lighting" comment), and I'll hopefully do 20-minuters of a whole lot of them, and maybe longer studies of some.

    20 minutes is my arbitrary short-study time, BTW, because 10 minutes is a good point to stop the timer, step away, and make sure I have all the big shapes, with another 10 left for details. When I don't have some sort of timer, I'll just noodle around on tiny details forever.

    Rocking Blade Runner study!! Blade Runner is the film that got me into lighting and into my career as mainly CG Lighting artist (and generalist). Great studies. Another film with excellent dark moodey lighting is Harry Brown if you do these types of studies again.

    Also on what Xelar said about saturation in shadows if you get chance check out Jeremy Vickery's Gnomon DVD on light and colour theory as its awesome!

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Please keep updating. Your sketchbook is really inspiring.

    Thanks a ton for the comments, guys, and thanks, Whirly, for the movie suggestion. I'll also check out that colour theory DVD.

    Couple more Blade Runner quickies is all I have today, because it is Sunday and I wasted my entire day playing SWTOR. MMOs, possibly the worst thing an artist can do. BUT I AM A JEDI, GUYS.

    I'm basically declaring this head month. I will figure out how heads work, even if it's at the expense of studying anything else.

    20 mins, don't like this one:

    11-ish mins, off Pixelovely:

    I'd completely forgot about the trace 2/ ref 2/ 2 from imagination exercise until Whirly mentioned it a few posts back, and I decided to take another crack at it using all those screencaps I took, instead of random DeviantArt stock like I did with the original go. And - this may shock you - well-lit reference makes it easier to see facial planes. (But seriously, it was a huge DURR moment.)

    So yeah, first 2 in each row are traced, second 2 referenced, third 2 made up. I need to do like... 200 more of these.

    I also spent a good part of the day doing studies off Rad how to. It's geared a little more towards animators, but there's a lot of extremely helpful breakdowns on there.

    Lookin' great lady! I feel you with the learning heads thing,.... Try looking up different skulls on google earth, like asian male skull, or caucasian female skull ect... then draw those over and over, understand them.. ask questions about them.. then do a bunch from imagination... rinse, cycle, repeat... Just keep cranking, I think a lot of head drawing is knowing the skull structure underneath. 5 stars !
