two quick studies from movie stills...without using colorpicker and adjustments....just picking the color by hand all the time....such a good training. need to do it alot more
btw: can't wait for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z2cxhf46IU&feature=fvst
nice studies. work more on the edges and youll be fine too
I love the brush-y, texture-y feel of your images.
Very nice start to a sketchbook
Don't forget to do longer studies, and more in-depth studies of principles; the former will help with process, rendering and textures, the latter (such as planar studies of figures, studies of muscle diagrams etc) will help with the underlying structure of things.
like all the heads and figures!!! cool works!
the blog will not leave me be: http://www.kevinwuesteart.blogspot.com
@PontusEuxinus:thanks! yeah there is so many stuff i have to work on, i know i know :/
@Revidescent: thank you!
@Graymalkin: thanks alot!
@Jason Rainville: I know i should stop doing all those quick studies and go for more longer and in-depth stuff. i just watched mystery of form download and i think i will go back and do those basic studies again. but anyway i also started working on a cast drawing today....so there is hope
@kevinwueste: thank you for stoping by! among other artists your work really makes me want to attend some figure drawing classes which i will hopefully be able to attend in a few month.
@nevermindjoker: thank you! yeah probably... perhaps i will do some more work on that skull
just a few more movie stills....same goal: no picking, no adjustments.
i found out that my notebook monitor is pretty bad and my old and cheap tft is even worse...so posting all those colored studies is actually pretty pointless :/
@David.W.: thank you!
again only a small update:
@towy: thank you!
@revidescent: thanks! thats why i'm a huge fan of wes anderson... he has always nice colors going on and he composes his shoots pretty awesome.
@nevermindjoker: thanks a lot for that overpainting! defenitley adds mood.most of the times i'm doing that kind of studies or still lifes i'm too afraid of adding something thats not already in the picture or in front of me.
@thegrayslayer: thanks for stoping by!
just a few studies i did today
Your study is great man.
Great movie, midnight in Paris! Your SB is awesome, you can't really call it "getting started" because you seem to manage most of fundamentals like perspective, lighting, form...congratulations =)
@Hoang Nam Viet: thank you!
@DaveGarcia: thanks, ah yeah its a nice movie...but no.... i have no clue what i'm doing and i'm such a beginner and everytime i check this forum i know i have tons and tons to learn.
movie still and a quick b/w sketch i kinda like
just trying out my scanner with a sketchbook page from this morning...dont know if its good...since the scans are waaaay to light and my notebook monitor is total garbage, so i dont know if the adjustments are about ok or way off on other monitors...perhaps im going to scan some other pages too.
Dude, VEEERY cool studies. I love the shift between the screenshots and traditional media.
Keep it up and I'll keep coming back!
@tronrobot: thank you!
@raqmo: thanks man!
@Mike L: thanks...i will try to upload some more traditional stuff too
@The_Flying_Dutchman: thanks alot!
@Fellah.: thanks for stoping by! now i feel like.... thanks!
some digital study and some really shitty sketchbook pages from today:
aww this face...did it during breakfast...thought it would come out quite nice but something is sooo off...
from the mirror...had a lot of trouble with that neutral light on a cloudy day...
and it was actually my first selfportrait in color...seems to be waaay more fun and exciting than just doing b/w
btw: kinda funny how my white wall is almost the same color as the forum with that lighting
nice portrait studies, i like your use of color. maybe a bit overuse on the speckled brush, but details details
thanks for sharing
Hi, I really enjoyed looking through your thread. Your portraits look super. I am subscribing to your thread because I am interested to see where this goes. All the best. Keep uploading!
@Bakker: thanks...i only used that brush. i'm looking for brushes i feel comfortable with...and atm this is the only one i really like. and about details....i still don't really get the big shapes and forms right, so i don't know if it makes any sense to try adding more details....but i will try to push it a little bit more.
@Damien Levs: thanks alot! i hope i won't disappoint you.
one more selfportrait with almost the same set-up...tried a new brush and i hate it. stopped at this point because i fucked up once more. this lighting is really killing me. i will try it again tomorrow...i want to get it right
and i look like a maniac on this one...
