    going on and on and on

    Hi folks
    My name is Tamires and I'm a design student! I noticed lately I've been lacking some technical stuff on my latest works and I decided to start a sketchbook challenge for myself so as to brush up on some basic skills. So, the big issue I'm facing when making a painting is thinking 3D, letting go of the lineart and sketching with color, like getting all the hues and working on values... I have always painted in black&white to establish the values first, then I use the layer modes on PS to color it, but the colors have been like greyish for some time and it's really bugging me... Aaaand I wanna start painting on Painter because of its traditional feel.

    So, my rules are:
    Deadline: December 31st
    Subjects: Heads, Arms, Hands, Torsos, Feet, Legs, Interiors, Exteriors/Landscapes, Texture, Perspective and Machinery.
    Main rules:
    -I have to paint 50 of each subject.
    -I must always use reference.
    -I must paint on Painter and use strictly colors, no value sketching for this one.
    -I must always block in shapes and use no lineart.
    -I must spend no longer than 20 minutes on each painting.
    -I must always spend 10 minutes with warm up exercises.

    My old stuff comes first, the four last ones are the latest studies. Please, crit! And if you want, I can crit your stuff too let's improve together!

    Fun stuff to do!

    Hey, guys! So, I've been trying to improve my silhouettes by going to www.posemaniacs.com and spending some time doing this stuff. Really relaxing. I spent some time playing with some ink brushes, so...

    I think I've improved so far, it took so long for conceptart.org to release my SB page XD hahah

    Yay

    Didn't do much... I'm working on this game project doing some environmental stuff, so I didn't really have time :X o god. Ths first one is 'Arcos da Lapa', in Rio de Janeiro where I live. The game designer asked for this. The other is some random silhouettes I made... Kinda liked those, for a change. XD

    Wow, what an insane amount of work! Nice job. i thought you might want to check out the links in my signature, a lot of people prefer them to posemaniacs since they use real people and less crazy camera angles.

    Sure there is! One has 30 sec, minute, 2 minute and longer preset times and the other lets you enter your own time limit.

    More and more

    I haven't been updating lately because I ran out of internet this weekend, so... but that doesn't mean I haven't done anything well, lately I've been worrying too much about rendering and more technical stuff and I feel my drawings lost a lot of its gesture, soo... I came back in time and made a bunch of these. Still trying to figure out good settings for gesturing with Painter... and also, I gotta make my brush strokes flow more rapidly, instintively. On paper I achieve that (specially with a brush) but on Painter is a bit more tough.

    Also, I'm trying to make silhouettes and give up line drawing... Sorta miss the last one, gives much control on your drawing. And I'm aware that, if my drawing sucks, most probably my painting will suck too. Well, back to the drawing table(t)! ^^

    Finally posting more

    So, I'm starting to get my drawing to look more loose than before and I'm happy about it. Next, I'll try to dig in some perspective and enviroment thumbs so that I can start to imagine things in a 3D space. It's daaaamn difficult for me, buut... I think I can do it. Please comment, I really could use some help here!!

    Wow you have a lot of nice pieces here especially the paintings! One thing though is if your doing silhouettes, you might want to try a hard round brush in Photoshop with the brush size set to pen pressure. Also if you want to improve your line quality I might make the switch to ballpoint or felt tip pen, kind of did the trick for me.

    Thanks ^^ I was trying to kinda move up to Painter and, about the silhouettes, I use the scratchboard tool for doing these, it has the size set to pen pressure but I've been having a hard time controlling the tablet. But thanks anyhow!
