Thankyou for your animated posts, they are super informative! Im a huge fan of watching the decisions people make during illustration and your workflow is very entertaining to watch!
Love the way you draw/paint figures.
As daughter of the royal ambassador, Ariandra was required to wear body armor while traveling in foreign territory. For several months she endured the traditional plate carapace. It was oversized and bulky in a way that made her look far too much like a palace guard, or as Ariandra lamented, a “bumbling brute.”
Seeing her anguish, Ariandra's father ordered the services of the kingdom's most famed tailor to design a custom outfit. It was to be both protective and fashionable.
Finally she would be seen in public, and was eager to peruse the foreign bazaars in style.
your work is so incredible. I love the last one
The colors and values in that last one are very nice. I love how you put the lighting on the armor since that is the defining part of the character design.
Amazing mood in all the pieces. I don't know how I never saw this sketchbook before, but I'll sure now miss it anymore!
Good to see you back!
Your recent work is looking great, as usual--great brush stroke economy. I particularly like the way you handled the rug in post 250; it reads as being much more intricate than it actually is. Great structure of temperatures, too! The purples work really well with the warmer colors in the robe and armor. Looking forward to more!
Absolutely wonderful work.
Ariandra's outfit is pretty, but she had better watch out for low attacks...
By the way, I'm wondering how you went about learning what you know about light, color, composition, etc.
Are you self-taught?
Do you have any books that you would recommend for someone looking to learn the fundamentals?
I'm concerned more right now with learning light/color (painting stuff) than form/anatomy.
Thank you in advance for your help and as well for your contribution to the wonderful visual art we have in this community and this world.
