    Red face Juhaihai's SKETCHBook

    Hello~

    I'm a fine arts student hoping to someday work as a concept artist.
    I just joined the site a few days ago, I originally planned on just lurking
    but then I thought wth, maybe making a sketchbook would motivate me to draw more
    since procrastination is a sin I struggle with everyday.

    Here are a few sketches I made, I will post everyday.
    Comment and Critique is ALWAYS welcome.

    Thank you Yuzero! How to subscribe on a thread tho?

    I'm new here and i'm not so sure how things go...
    Already, I think I screwed up the thread icon T__T I don't have an idea how to fix it.

    Heya, welcome to CA! lovely images! oh and, awesome to see some fanart of Jinx. She's such a cool character! You mentioned you can't figure out what's wrong with it.. well, there are some things that I think you can touch up to make the piece better.

    1. Her eyes are a bit out of proportion, one is bigger than the other.
    2. The tip of the nose doesn't extend out far enough which gives the nose a kind of a flat appearance.
    3. The darks in her skin are cool with a lot of blue in them which gives her skin a bit of a muddy feel in some of the shadows. I think some more warmth would help.
    4. You paint with 100% hardness which creates a lot of hard edges of the shapes in her skin. It's hard to blend hues and values when painting with hard edges. Skin naturally has very soft gradients and shapes in its local color and value, and most of the hard edges are found around the facial features.

    Hope it helps!

    You've got beautiful work and I hope to see more

    Yes! Its Jinx, she's awesome and kind of OP in LoL at the moment. She's probably gonna get nerfed soon :/

    now that you mention it, I think you're right...the eyes might need more tweaking; needs more work especially that nose, i can see how its so wrong now O __ O.
    You're right about the skin too, I was too caught up with maintaining her light complexion (staying true to her character) that now it looks odd. Maybe a few reddish hues would help...

    For the hardness, I can't help it. My brushes are not at all at 100% hardness, i reduce them to around 75% and opacity ranges from 30-50%. But somehow when I resize the resolution of my psd image from 400 to 72, my soft lines are turned into hard edges. This wasn't the case when I was using the older version of PS CS6. I have long wondered if this thing only happens to me...I have yet to find a solution tho but I'm currently experimenting with the brushes I have.

    That, or i have my resolution settings wrong :/
    I do agree with the hardness of that picture tho, I'll soften the edges up when I get back to it, Jinx really needs a lot of work.

    THANK YOU very much~~

    I haven't tried her yet. I don't think I've played LoL in over 2 months! Went back to Dota2 again heh.

    Oh, sorry, I shouldn't have assumed that you painted with 100% hardness even though the edges appear hard. My bad it sounds strange though, that the edges become that hard when you resize the image. You should explore it more to see why it happens. I usually paint in the same DPI throughout the whole painting so I haven't experienced that. And even when I change the DPI the rest of the image doesn't seem to change. Hmm.. I hope you find the cause!

    looking forward to see more of your work!

    Hey, juhaihai. It's possible that your resizing issue has to do with photoshop's automatic resampling settings.
    When you open up the window to resize your canvas make sure you have Resample Image ticked on. Then click on the drop down menu. Bicubic automatic has a sharpening effect on your image when you resize. Try changing it to just Bicubic. I think I had a similar issue until I figured that out.

    Oh man, i want to try DOTA2 but they say its a lot harder than LoL? is it really? and im mediocre with LoL OTL.

    and No worries! The hard edges in my paintings is an issue I've been trying to ignore for a while now because I thought it's not that visible >.< but then, all my work on the soft edges are wasted when i try to reduce the dpi. Glad it's pointed out so I could ask for some help on it. Hopefully, jondawo's advice works, I'll try it tonight. If not then yep, I'll continue experimenting with my settings on PS.

    THANKS AGAIN!~

    Thank you! I did get the problem solved, Jondawo's solution worked, it lessened the hard edges.


    @Jondawo
    IDK ig you'd be able to read this but thank you for your suggestion. It worked!
    I've been testing out some softer brushes too so that helped as well.

    Thank you as well who took time to read and visit this thread and comment. It is much appreciated

    Some new stuff.

    I plan on doing some project about a made up MMO/RPG world. I already have the characters, all I need now are the designs and environments
