nope, sadly nothing finished. i feel like i need a lot more sketching and underlying knowledge before i might tackle anything serious. that being said, maybe i'll try to do some finer linework on poses that came out okay so far.
Hey ,you remind me of myself quite bit I've started several months ago too! It's really nice that you study Hampton, his book is amazing and you can learn A LOT, I still work through this book. I think the same thing about studies and sketching stuff, I actually prefer doing studies because I feel like I'm improving a lot faster than if just drawing from imagination. Though I don't completely shut it off ,you should draw from imagination too! Studies are important as hell but you should do your own stuff to develop your style. Also, don't depend on digital too much, the outcome of studies is nice but traditional is more important at this stage, cheers
Damn. Your gestures are great. You have loads of energy in your drawings. Maybe try to not use any weird brushes or effects when you do painting studies, just stick with one brush for now and try to work with big shapes and then get more into the details. You're already better than me though haha. Can't wait to see more.
Hey Sirkrimskull! You've got a very good sense for proportions and creating depth in those earlier figure/gesture drawings of yours.
Cool concept for your hearthstone challenge, love the atari joystick idea! XD The colours are getting a bit too saturated in your later versions, I liked the colours more in the last version of your previous post. Maybe keep the saturation limited to your focal points.
Keep it up!
I guess I'm just reiterating what others have said, but I love the line quality of your gestures. Most of them are so expressive! It was a while back, but I really love that figure with the gun, in the first image of post #5. So simply, but so expressive. Those vehicle sketches look really cool, too. Now I wish you could maintain that same sense of brevity and liveliness into a value study. Could you perhaps take one or more of those vehicle designs, and try it again... but this time think in *volumes* using a variety of values (but keep it monochrome), instead of using line? Don't worry about details, those can come later!
The Hearthstone piece I think could have really benefited from a value study before jumping into the color. Are you using any reference for the figure? The anatomy is looking a bit made up.
thanks a lot for your comments! sadly i haven't had much time over the weekend, i just tried to fix the forearm as much as possible today and well... i'll leave it at that and maybe come back to this piece sometime later.
looking back at my gesture drawings, i think that i really lost some of the liveliness by trying to be more consistent but see for yourselves. these are from today
@ indigo dawn: again, thanks for your comment. attached are two value concepts from a few weeks past.
i did some others traditionally, maybe i can scan them sooner or later.
