    Ninja update! A nearly finished WIP. I'm doing the opposite I've been doing lately and invested my time on something which isn't a floating head portrait, and I also want to make it rougher but more balanced. Less sexy highlights if I manage to stay my hand, better edges, so though individual details won't sell it the artwork looks better as a whole package.

    Stuff that undoubtedly will change: Her weird hand, that giant funny brush thing—which I want to fit in the pic because it's relevant but I don't think I'll be able to.

    Aw, that sucks! Same thing happened to me today, but I previewed the post before it crashed, so I was able to restore it.

    Thanks, Nicky! Feel free to nitpick, particularly on this WIP since it's still a WIP.


    Anyway, that's here I stopped today. Using lasso tool is so helpful, frankly, I don't know why I don't use it more if not due pure laziness. I feel better about these tiles now. Their crappy look was distracting me from other fixes.

    Very nice Vielmond. Loving seeing a more completed illustration from you. I have two thoughts you might consider for this WIP. One is that her hand doesn't seem weight bearing given that the fingers are all bent. Secondly is adding some subtle layering to the background to create layers of buildings and making the city seem less like a flat wall. Nice work!

    The difference between the first pages and your latest work is amazing! Loving #300.

    Looking forward to seeing more illustrations from you.
    (Btw, you have an amazing Castlevania-esque name!)

    Indeed, I put a bit more of work on that background. It's actually a sort of wall, that city was built in a steep slope, it's pretty vertical. That hand is giving me some trouble. Clenched looks just plain wrong, partially clenched look like crap as well. I'll still give it some love as I work a bit more on her, but I can't make her looking as if leaning all her weight on it, because she's not. In this inclination placing pressure on your hands would make you slid down. Her balance depends on those curled toes.

    Thank you! I've been fighting the urge to start a new sketchbook, but it's useful to let people see my progress, I reckon. Haha, no one said that about my name before!

    @wutangclam
    Thanks! Hm, to paint believable skin you must understand it, there is no shortcut I know. Strive to understand how light interacts with it, do some researches on the subject. It might sound odd, but understanding how skin is done in 3D (texture and material properties) helps immensely, that's how I started to notice what I should look for in skin. I also love to make other artists unknowingly teach me by observing their works. Artists exaggerate or tone down things, what makes them easier to notice. Noticing is the first step. Observe mindfully, ask yourself questions. Try Frank Holl, Sargent, Peter Paul Rubens, José Tapiró y Baró; Ludwig Deutsch is outstanding for dark skin tones.

    Last update before posting the finished piece, because I don't want to ruin your patience. I think I'll keep the brush, and the other arm.

    Such awesome stuff in here, I cant believe ive never noticed your sb. Guess I should browse more.
    I love how everything you have in here looks handmade. Whatever you do, stay true to yourself in that regard- it sets you apart. There are enough hyperrealistic photobashing pixelpushers out there! Cheers!

    Thanks! Once you start to grasp how skin works it gets easier, though different atmospheres still hold the power to puzzle you.

    @Benedikt
    Uh oh, an adult came down to the playground to watch the children play!
    Thank you for the kind words! There will be always someone to complain about the roughness but I'm way too willful to comply. It's not that I don't like hyperrealistic photobashing and all the stuff polished into oblivion, I enjoy looking at them and I still want to steal some secrets from them (e.g.: atmosphere), but I'm invariably draw to the things that don't look as digital and smooth.

    I'm done with that cursed thing (unless someone finds something unforgivable, ofc)!

    And the neutral atmosphere version. Ugh, I like it better.

    Vielmond's Sketchbook

    That piece got me to exercise different muscles. Attempting to keep a balanced level of detail is challenging for different reasons than the usual. The temptation to bring the focus to familiar areas through highlights, sunlight or define certain edges is too great. I also decided to start shyly play with blur in the inverse way I do: instead of using it simply for depth and edges I used to it blend some values. It looks too even for my taste, but I'll tame it eventually.

    Your sketchbook is so inspiring! I like the way you leave a lot of your brushwork showing through while still mainting your work knit. Also, i wish i had a last name as cool as yours :l

    Thanks for posting and cheers from Brazil.
