    Enixtm - Mihai Radu's sketchbook

    Heya, I'm Mihai from Romania. Decided to step out of the lurk mode and post.. Let me just get some things out of the way first : O They're all fairly recent, some are from last year.

    Edit: I shall try to figure out how to attach a thumbnail to the thread. Experiments may result in unwanted consequences. : O


    Studies:

    Applied some stuff that i leeched from the previous study. I didn't reference anything this time, except for a..thing. : D Tried to do stuff from memory, ended up having a different mood though.

    Thanks Cheezah and M1dor1!

    Here's another master study. Repin this time. I'm getting more confident with this. Also i discovered a few helpful brushes for texturing. Took a bit more than 3 hrs.

    Study of the painting called Le crab by William Bouguereau. A decent amount of hours into it. Over 10 hrs i think. With lots of Diablo 3 beta intertwined.

    Great work Mihai, I think all of your work is great but I am a bigger fan of your realism paintings. I like the second painting of what looks to be a "Japanese" girl in a bathing suit, I like the work you did on her hair. I'm still trying to figure out how to get my hair more like yours.

    I'm Marc, an American living in Japan. I don't just like your second painting because it appears to be of a Japanese girl, but because my girlfriend is Japanese and the last (second) digital painting that I ever completed in Photoshop was of her. Not knowing how to do hair at all I think I did a very good job on it and I am proud of it, but in the future my goal would be to get to where you are on that specifically.

    I also really like your Theon Greyjoy painting from Game of Thrones. Nice lighting and depth of field, reminds me of one of my DSLR camera photos.

    @Marc: Thanks, i quite fancy the distinct japanese beauty, i'm glad you like that one. It's just a photo study though, not taking much credit for it.

    There's not much i can say in writing about painting hair, except focus on the big shapes first with softer brushes, and then pick some spots and paint a few strands with harder, more precise brushes. Don't forget (when you do your studies) that there's a lot of color variation in the hair, but it's subtle, so pay attention to it and try to capture it, or else it will seem kinda monochromatic. Also soften edges on the head's contour and add some thin strands in there too. Some of them lit up, (almost white) especially if there's light behind the model.

    So here are some orc shaman ideeas for the Wizards art challenge: D&D

    WOW amazing, your art work is fantastic. I really enjoy the Theon painting, it looks very real. I had to look really hard to see if it was or not. I also enjoyed the Le crab by William Bouguereau, very fantastic work.

    Man, lots of potential in here! I really liked the last thumbnails, and it seems your master studies are paying off!

    On the "criticism" part I'd say the human structure needs to get a bit further, altought it's possible that it got a bit changed over time while you were painting and that's why it looks a bit off, anyhow, those last thumbnails show a decent grasp on structure so I'm not quite sure.

    Also some hard edge/ soft edge experiments would do you good, I think that would improve tremendously your work.

    At least you're painting and not only drawing, wich seems to be a hard thing to do for me, keep getting out of the comfort zone and your stuff will just explode.

    Looking forward to see more of your stuff man.

    Whouan - Thanks, i'm glad you like Theon! I bet you don't like him anymore after this week's ep. ain'it?
    Suira - I think you're actually spot-on with the criticism. : D I was thinking i should get out of the comfort zone more, and i'm also in a spot where i'm figuring out hard-soft edges. It's actually great to hear this from someone else. Kinda reinforces my beliefs.

    But for now, i'l shamefully post more comfort zone stuff. : <

    A study

    Applying stuff from study. Even when i'm not making fan-art, i'm still making fan-art. Enjoy Mai Shiranui and the D3 wizard at the same time. I know i would. : O

    Here's some Mass Effect fan-arts that i've done for Koobismo's Marauder Shields comic. I have been welcomed into his team, and i am glad to be able to help from time to time with some illustrations. The Jack image will be used in the future for something hopefully exciting. We'll have to wait and see. : D

    See some dead people, that is.

    Man I am loving your work, Mihai! Especially the studies, which is what I strive for every time I do gesture drawings. And the realism paintings, don't get me started on the awesomeness!

    And this ridiculousness. 100 faces of non-metal (singers). I have messed people up beyond belief.

    And digitals. Same pose, lol. Experimenting with painterly styles. It had to be done.

    To sum it up, i felt the need lately to detach from the fan-art train and see what my mind can muster. This has to continue if i'm ever going to build a creative portofolio that ain't filled with Bleach and Street Fightarz.
