    SolarSketchbook

    Hey everyone!
    I want to start posting my work up here with the hope that it is even more motivating and pushes me further.
    I figure I'll start off with some recent sketches and go from there!

    I have some sketches from the last two days.
    The first is without reference. Kind of inspired by the death of Pris in Blade Runner. Didn't quite finish the anatomy and ran out of room. I will probably try this again with some reference.

    Decided it was time to revisit hands because I hate them.

    And with the portrait I think I always make the eyes bigger than they really are.

    Not finding the motivation this week. None of my sketches are really worthy of putting up here, maybe one that I want to rework. I did do some environments today though. Two paintings about 35 min each.

    Alright it has been awhile, but I am back with some people studies.
    I know, and these reiterate, that I am seriously lacking confidence in my hands. they always end up awkward or out of proportion. I guess it comes with practice, right?
    I still make my eyes too big, but I kind of like it.
    I will try to spend more time diversifying so I am not just showing you people.
    As always critique and advice is always welcome and wanted!

    First off I have some faces I found reference online.

    I don't have much practice with the male form so I gave the torso a try, but I always need more work.

    And this is a sketch I am starting to paint. Hopefully I can finish it up tomorrow! It is feeling very flat and boring right now.

    This is the start I have made on the COW for this week: The Bakemono that Haunt the Mountains. Got a little carried away practicing the shape of the animal, but now I can really begin on creating my shape-shifting monster. I am thinking of painting it in the style of some traditional japanese impressionists and using the tusks and snout from the boar as a key characteristic to build from.

    Tried to paint a film still today. About an hour.
    Seriously a lot wrong with it but I would totally do another. A lot of fun!

    I am having some serious fun with these I think I will make this the theme of the week. At least one per day!
