Nice progress. I saw the gray scale values on the mermaid. Instead of using all 10, try using just 70, 30 and 10 to make an image for a while. You will see big leap. Good luck. ;-)
Thank you everyone for stopping by ^^
AdrianNagorski: I'm trying to tackle fundamentals but i really need to improve my form understanding and perspective. Thanks for the advice
rich4rt: Thanks a lot for pointing that out, i really enjoy the process, i just would want to enjoy it for a bit more time XDXDXD. I think all of us have something to say and some of it leaks into what we do, but god, i loved your people with swords and environments, especially the blade runner inspired one, it is amazing.
xia: Its such a pleasure to have you on my sb . I'm gonna try to make it between those values for the next piece, hope you can see the results
I managed to do some values on the red riding hood on the front, this is a piece for a friend of mine so I'm trying to make it look as good as possible and taking my time to do so.
The other images are some sketches I've made on this non posting time.. ill upload some every now and then. Thank you for coming and as Darren Yeow says, keep arting
Im writting some stories and developing the characters to make them an animated series.. Heres what i came up with Red riding hood is taking a bit longer because i have to paint after i do some homework and this days im falling asleep on my desk XD but ill have it by this weekend so excited with this one!!!...
that's what i'm talking about! stories stories
Hey man thanks for checkn out my sb. I'm loving the structure in the pencil studies. For some reason it's not really translating to the digitals as much. try doing some perspective studies in ps to get the rhythm going. also the form and contrast are still a bit washy and unrefined, try setting up some still life on your desk and doing some master studies and things like that. Good Luck!
andres333: thank you for stopping by
Chris Sanders: Im gonna do master studies and still life paintings, thank you very much for the advice and for coming, i enjoyed your studies a lot, im gonna do some more myself...
Im doing a darkness piece for a contest back in Ecuador, WIP, and making an skeleton on my wolf man for my 3D animation class
I think a few value studies would help you with your grayscale. Some more contrast in them could strengthen them some. Also UPDATE more often. Theres bulk uploader now so theres no excuse >=(. Looking forward to seeing how your animation plays out. Keep it up =)
Wuzuup guys, guess whos back
e-nat and Wingal, responses are on your respective sb thank you for stopping by
Ive been away for a really long time now and i must say. Its been great! Mostly because i used the time to create and study without the weight of having something new to show on the sb, but creating for the sake of creating.
I know i still have a lot of flaws and thats why im really eager to come back, because this is an amazing place to share, learn and connect.
Hope i can share with you, for you to connect with me and for us to grow together and learn from each other.
This is something ive been working on for the past week, its taking me a lot of time to finish because im having problems with composition and values that im now fixing... Please leave crits, i really need and apreciate them.
You have some cool concepts and sketches here, too! Love you animal and anatomy studies
As for me, sure! I'm in crazy mode right now so more sketches and concept up to come!
I dont know if this will help, but what really helped me when it came to gestures was Nicolaides' approach to running line gesture. Just made perfect sense to me. If your not already doing it try to draw with your entire arm and not just your wrist, i think that would improve your lines a lot more. Also remember to find the tension and weight in the pose and bear down on your pencil accordingly. Switch to maybe some conte and newsprint to really get a feel for it. I would also say dont be afraid to take your studies further, spend more time on em and really think about all the forms. I have to constantly remind myself to do it as well .
Hey Bing! I have the Nicolaides book, its on my to read list . Hope you get to see more studies when i get to that one. Thanks for stopping by and for the crits
This is a gift to a friend of mine and the lineart for a character of a comic book im working on... Ideas ideas...
