Hey man! I'm noticing small improvements in your work, especially in your Orc and Gold nugget man. the linework in your final images are a lot neater so it doesn't hurt the shape and silhouette of your drawings, plus all that rough lineark makes your images much busier than they shouldand your colours are starting to become more solid, your images still look very flat, work on those forms, values, and depth. remember the further away from the viewer objects get they seem less saturated and lighter than the foreground, and of course less detail. also try to avoid over doing the textures in your gold man the textures distrupt the forms and flatten the image considerably, remember to reference and study from life, read lots of books and eat your veggies
Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!
Thank you Rob you actually know quite a bit about art, thanks for taking the time to comment on my stuff, lol you don't need art school! your stuff is also getting better by the day as well!!
Mr. SMILEFACE; thanks man im trying, im glad im showing some sort of progress and chasing down the dream, cant wait to finally deliver the landscape i promised!!!!!
So i ran out of time this week got work as always my weekends are just taken from me, so im gonna stop this iow#2 piece here, i dont think i can bring it up to standard in time the composition is a bit f-d
gotta go to work no way to finish this i think i spend around four hours on this, i think another ten more and it would have looked as if i didn't rush it!, adleast the basic concept is down on paper, LOL
now that youve got your concept down, imagine the whoe thing in 3d and zoom around it in your mind, looking at it from different angles.
at the moment the angle is totally boring, but very good at showing all the ingredients. like a schematic. now you need to move the camera down to behind the guy on the horse as the god guy towers over him, or behind god guys shoulder so you can see the tiny horseman far below..etc etc.
Thanks Velocity Kendall, i some times lose track of the thought that i have to visualize everything i do as 3d object or how it would actually look in real life rather, great visualization of my ingredients as well, time is really against me so most things i do i jump straight in on the first idea instead of roughing a few out first i guess thats also a downfall i have, i also noticed that that composition is quite weak at that angle. thanks for taking the time to post here.
been a long day gota go sleep, did a quick 15min three sketches, i usually do stuff on my sketchpads, that i draw in every day but i thought id start doing it as well in photoshop since its a little different.
See the reason i dont upload my daily sketchbook stuff is because
1. the scanner scans to brightly i lose all my construction lines
2. my cellphone camera is crappy
3. dont want to give away my secret ideas
but i thought id make and exception today since after lurking thru quite a few sketchbooks i've noticed many of you crazy kids upload everything, and i wanted to sort of show that yeah i do sketch every day, its just photoshop that makes me look like im playing with crayons!!!
