    30th April 2012

    Okay, worked 10 more min on the enviro and got bored, values are once again too light and perspective is off.
    Started painting. New thing for me, doing my version of the temple of time from LoZoT because that game practically was my childhood. It looks warmer than it is because the light globe is very warm and it was still dark when I took the picture. I did try a yellow under-painting too, so hat wouldnt help, its meant to look like light is streaming in the windows (still havent painted that part in though, noooo idea what I am doing.
    Practised ellipses and lines, i do this often, but havent shown it. I havent done the line exercise in the last couple of weeks and I noticed an improvement, so I thought I'de upload. Did some boxes freehand in 1 point perspective too, this was a PITA, took ages.

    Glad to see you studying perspective, and your legs are looking fancy.

    Keep it up, buddy.

    Wow, neat! All the custom brushes I made are the boring but functional kind. Nothing I can really use for nice textures.
    But man, you're getting really good at picking out good values for enviros. I'm impressed.

    Okay, so now that I've participated in exactly one EOW, I'm obviously enough of a big shot that I can give others environment advice
    Well, no, obviously I'm not, but I think I spotted something useful:
    You want to figure out ahead of time how tall everything is meant to be. That plateau on the left side, assuming it is level, if the highest point of the plateu at the furthers point away from you is higher than the horizon, then the highest point closest to you will also be higher than the horizon. The same is true vice versa: if it's lower than the horizon close to you, then it will be lower than the horizon furthest from you.

    A horizon is the viewer's eye level, so anything that's taller than that - there's no way you'd see its top side. Completely impossible.

    Redline in case the above made no sense:

    In any case I really like that little mountain range; very charming

    Koh: Thank you very much

    Hayden: Best game lol, hope my rendition can do it some justice.

    Hahaha the firs thing that came to mind when you worded it like this:

    Just because of the way you worded it, the advice however, I really appreciate, it never thought of using mountains to find the vanishing point, the river seems to of almost followed that perspective too, which I guess is a positive lol.

    today we have:
    Perspective (boring), anatomy (foot fetish ftl), and a face from my head. Tried doing greyscale first then changing to colour, it seemed to work somewhat alright.. better than starting off in straight colour, though that eventually will be the goal.

    I see progress!
    How do you manage not to get confused when constructing that perspective stuff...
    I also like that last environment, especially the rocks
    Keep it up!

    Hehe, thanks Lyriana, and the answer to how not to get confused with perspective lines is simple. I do get confused.. very, very very confused...

    This is all for today, got a bunch of stuff I cant be bothered scanning, may scan it later.
    Trying to practice facial features, so that I dont have to think about it so much and just concentrate on placing them on the head.

    Finished my eye sheet and practised seeing the cranial mass through hair, something I seem to struggle with for some reason..

    Whoa, eye studies look great! I'd be careful if I were you though; maybe it's just me, but I find practicing individual parts to be less helpful than practicing the whole. Cause, you know, there's tons of variation and the way parts connect to and interact with each other is what makes them look right. But yeah, maybe it's just me.

    By the way, you really nailed the hair on that last study. Seriously, nicely done. The long cat pupils are making her look kinda scary, but looks pretty solid otherwise.

    IntoTheVoid Thanks but yeah, I really just studied them to try and work out how they work form wise, and how they sit on the face because I was really struggling with that. Turns out the next page of Hogarth did it anyway, but its good to know the conclusions I came to were right.
    thanks in regards to the hair, I was constantly thinking what you said about hair and it turned out okay, so thanks for the advice a while ago too

    Destroyed my sculpture yesterday, the proportions were off and I dont have the money to get it fired, but I took a pic of it to record my first ever attempt with clay.

    Did some Hogarth, Perspective drawing of Goldenstein Castle and another self portrait, came out better than the last one, so I guess it means I'm improving, right? RIGHT?!

    I Fixed my monitor! Slightly... turns out my HDMI powered monitor showed blacks WAYYYYYY too black, I havent calibrated it, but its loads better than what it was before..

    Anyway, onto work.. Eviro from head (~1.5hrs), Enviro from reff (~3hrs, was meant to be 20min >.> I got carried away and it looks nothing like the ref) and a face of Jaqen H'ghar who is my new fav character on GOT, hopefully finish that soon.

    Thanks for viewing.
