    Random child from photo. I wanted to do this fast and it ended up like this...imagine how far I am of doing what I want.

    As I kept working I've added layers and layers, was hard to stop, at some point I get forced to use some dry techniques with semi opaque watercolor to continue and get the tones I were looking for. Not sure if this is the kind of watercolor I want to do, maybe the reference was already difficult to simplify.

    Oh, and what you're seeying is a photo of the original, some colors are missing while others are completely different, but you get the idea.

    Your pen and ink work is really really nice. Great energy and shapes. I think your watercolors are coming along, too. Great work overall. Are you going to be a fine artist? Or concept artist? What are your art goals for next year?

    All the best.

    @p sage, I don't really have a clear idea, somehow I find more "reliable" to do concept art, not sure about finding anything related with fine arts. At least in Spain, where I live, seems so risky. Seending a portfolio to a thousand of game publishers sounds more viable, maybe I'm wrong.

    Anyway I'm not planning to leave fine arts, is so much fun and like the sensations behind it, on the other hand to even attempt concept art I need to learn photoshop well, so, goals will be; be faster and more skilled with watercolor, learn digital color well, draw better, create a flashy Epic Fantasy & Sci-Fi portfolio, get a job related with art. That sum up my goals.

    I also have a graphic novel almost done, but for very small publishers, I don't really expect to get any benefit for it, sadly.

    *And thanks for the feedback!

    Jeez, some real good figure work. The imaginative stuff is also great, I am really liking the application of anatomy to them.


    I think your work would lift off if you found a bridge between your imaginative work and traditional work. They don't have to be different beasts. It would be awesome to see a finalized fantasy illustration where you use a lot of reference and apply your (wonderful) knowledge fundamentals to make a finished painting. You clearly have the skills to render and to apply good value, color and composition.

    Just a suggestion for you to play with. Good luck!

    @Saraiva, thank you a lot for the nice words. About blending both styles, sounds good, but I'm not sure about how much time I may need for it or if someone will pay for that. If you're talking only about self improvement then it absolutely sounds great.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    In case someone have any interest about the painting process of a noob, here I leave this...

Size:  146.7 KB

    I've used Cadimum Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson, Sepia, Prussian blue, and Payne's Grey for this. First I start with fast (unskilled) strokes trying to leave some grain behind, I work almost absolutely on dry.

    Then I put some more depth, some transparent strokes are leaved as they are, some semi opaque tones are blended a bit, I abuse Ochre to get some semi opaque mid tones.

    At this point I put blue, grey, or sepia in every mix, work with few water and try to get some texture.

    It have MANY drawing flaws but anyway >.<

    @féfé73 pleased to hear that from you

    Was messing around with references, ideas, and overall boredom. The horses are some original design I may develop more later while the pencil drawings at the end are from HoM&M IV.

    What I wanted; fast sketches of some esque goblins, what I've done:

Views: 637
Size:  174.3 KB

    Name:  Gouache goblin 2 s.jpg
Views: 639
Size:  178.3 KB

    On the first one I missed the mix of greens from the head and ended changing tones, didn't touched gouache in a while so a few tubes were dry, and that may explain why I kept adding layers, detail, and stuff.

    On the other side I like how scanned gouache look better than the original work a lot of times.

    Generally gouache looks more like the original scanned, brighter colors, cleaner, etc, it even looks better than the original artwork, acrylic on the other side, lose quality on thin layers and glazes, but can be blended more organically and I get more fun from it.

    @Monkabit, playing is the word, while I keep struggling with gouache at every single subject, with watercolor is like I'm getting worst with the time, at least with fast paintings. Quite frustrating mediums.

    Some random stuff I've done, two of them from life, guess which ones :-)

    I've been drawing with soluble graphite, just to see what happen. Is hard to get something good from it, because other than drawing in the traditional way, you may kill values and linework using water over it.

    The script wasn't really mine, it was for a contest and did the comic with a friend, actually, we both hate it I've enjoyed trying to draw something different anyway.

    Whoa...things have changed since my last time here...

    Anyway, here I am posting some stuff again. I did some abstract painting, not the kind of material you see around here, and not the kind of work I do either, but anyway.

    It's acrylic on rough paper, in case someone wonder about it.

    Great line and crosshatch works there. Some of them do have a really cool feeling. Nice colors too, even if some feels less saturated than others - which tends to make them look sometimes a bit dull. A bit damaged during the scanning process, maybe ?

    Well, now that you say so, the acrylic and gouache ones may have that issue, mixing thin colors with white could cause that problem, and of course they don't look exactly like the originals.

    Thanks for taking a look McDuff!

    Lemon obsession.

    Trying some random color pencils and basic shapes, somehow I end drawing lemons more often than not...

    Most of them are between the study and the sketch, guess I may try to go faster or get more detail instead. I like the pencils, you can try many things with them, here I'm mostly cross hatching.

    Hi Jean, nice post. The colours are quite nice actually - I specially dig the way you played with the shadowy parts - and your lines are making it a whole thing. You maybe found something interesting here.

    Hiya McDuff! I'm actually quite limited here on color selection, I'm using a small "palette" of hard color pencils, but I'm gonna get a set of prismas in about two days.

    I'm trying to preserve the lines of my B&N sketchbooks, but getting the right shading and tones at the same time it's indeed an interesting challenge and some colors can't cover well what you've done with others.

    Also, its hard to get good references/tutorials, seems like an underrated media, and most people good with it are just going for photo realism...

    @Ujjalloh, thanks!
