    rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks! That CHoW will remain tragically unfinished. Or, uh, maybe I will finish it, but not for the deadline?


    Okay, so, I'm not sure if I should actually try to explain what this is. I'll just say it's stupid stuff from a D&D campaign again, and... if you feed a bunch of potions to a rat at random, you're gonna have a bad time.

    That last b/w work looks really nice.
    I love sketchy yet well done pieces.
    The chin looks just a little too far on the right, but aside of that, I really like it.

    shockowaffel - Thanks, you're right about the chin. Need to work harder on headsssss.


    So as merl1n pointed out a couple of days ago, I don't do nearly enough work from life. I spent the afternoon doing a self-portrait, and boy did I struggle with it, which is a sure sign I need to do more of these.

    BONUS ROUND: I dug out the LAST time I did a digital self-portrait from life (did a few since, but they were all traditional media) SEVEN YEARS AGO. It was for my art school entry portfolio. These sorts of things always leave me with really, really mixed feelings - on one hand, I've come a really long way. On the other hand, I really should have come much, much further in seven freaking years. Ah well, never too late.

    I think there's a lot of understanding in the way things work between the two that might not visually manifest itself in one glance.

    Really admire your stuff, though. I'm struggling with digital painting so. much. I'm like a poor clueless puppy.

    I love that awesome mutant rat Dyou got a name for that?). It looks like it bites XD.

    The self portrait really looks good and that is a lot of improvements over the years.

    I have noticed for your studies you usually use the soft brushes , the lighting and volumes look good and you nail the mood . But I think it might helps if you define the shapes and outlines with a more hard brush . It might be your stylistic choice though. Just saying anyways
    oh and lovely gestures as always.

    joshualyness - Thank you!

    sin eater - You might be right about the hard edges. I feel like my stuff used to be - and sometimes still is, in the final pieces - very stiff and sort of lifeless, so I've been trying to loosen up. But if I'm starting to lose the forms, maybe I'm going to far in the other direction? I WILL PAY ATTENTION TO THIS. (The mutant rat is named... Mr Barleykins or something? I did not name it. It does, in fact, bite, and seems to be developing a taste for human blood. As it's from D&D, it may show up with even more mutations if that kid keeps feeding it potions and we don't feed it to the baby perytons first.)


    Been doodling heads all evening and generally just being frustrated; this is the only one I like enough to post. It seems that in the end I always default to tomboyish elfheads.

    Today I noticed that Drawing Script has hands, apparently? There's only 35 images in the rotation but I still managed not to draw them all. 2 minutes each.

    Yeah, thank you! Helped a ton, really.

    Nice gesture studies, too. Not often you see just clean contours for gestures.

    They really subtly capture the poses. Maybe for fun, try making the gestures really extreme, and really exaggerate the curve of the spine, the offset of the shoulders vs. hips, etc. A little less realism, a little more cartoony. Work out some strong silhouettes. Could lead to some interesting results.

    MeteorCat - Thank you!

    PeopleEveryday - Been meaning to do exaggerated gestures actually, I keep forgetting. D: I will do that!

    poetry_man - Thank you very much!

    Another LOTR cap! In my dedication to posting daily, I've just done this at my friend's place, sitting on the floor, using her couch as a desk, while her cat tried to eat my tablet pen. At 3:30 AM.

    Different painting style, because... reasons.

    rumpenstiltzkin - Thanks, they're all digital! Now I've found a digital setup I like, it wastes less paper. And honestly, when I do do them traditionally (which I occasionally do but rarely scan) they tend to look very similar because most of my RL sketching is in ballpoint pen these days.

    A rare non-face-study cap. LOTR, 40 minutes.

    Doooodling. File this under "I don't like the result but I had fun doing it".

    It's (sort of) Silchas Ruin from the Malazan series. Just finished Dust of Dreams! When I'm done Crippled God I will probably draw a LOT OF FANART; I've been holding off because I'm a little iffy on some characters' appearances and I'm afraid of running into spoilers if I google them. D:

    SUDDENLY LEGOLAS

    guys lets talk about eyes and how much i hate them

    Attachment 1458785

    LOTR screencap again, obviously. I didn't time this one, but I'd guess more than an hour for once; lots of weird little colour shifts, gave me a lot of trouble, also eyes.

    This brings me back to high school, when all the other girls were teen-heartthrob-obsessed with Orlando Bloom and I did. Not. Get it. Still don't.

    Legolas looks weird, especialy shadows around his right eye...

    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!
