    thanks for the welcome, gotta get some more stuff scanned (annoying since a lot of stuff is way bigger than the scanner )

    might someone point out the structure/proportion problems? feel free to to do a paintover (and keep in mind, this model was rather emaciated )

    Hey good work on those gestures! They really show that you're looking at the form and really noticing the basic shape of the pose in them. Keep them coming...draw draw draw!

    phantom of the opera

    Dave: thanks for the words of encouragement, ill try to keep'em comin. Unfortunately i leave for school again soon, and the trick is finding a scanner

    quickie update, saw phantom of the opera this weekend. awesome movie, much easier to understand than the stage play due to some added flashbacks, etc. Great cinematic artistry as well. Felt a lot like moulin rouge without the frenetic unfocused visual and auditory assault. Music was amazing as usual. And if you go to see it, or now the show, the opening chandelier sequence is incredible

    anyway, it inspired me and i whipped up a quick sketch on my computer, going to refine it a bit more this week (well hoping to anyway)

    I am however trying to get bolder, more free and open with my strokes. we'll see how it works out

    The Phantom


    later

    Ya that's your biggest worry about figure drawing. Proportions. Your lines are very smooth though and I like that.

    But another thing that nobody seems to have mentioned is... Your shading. You need to understand the porportions before you worry about this much but still your values are very smudged and unplanned. Those values should be compliments to your linework. It should push your artwork out by applying light and shadow to the form. Too much of your figure is in half tone, and I don't see where the light source is coming from in your first life drawings. try to use hatching to make your contours really come a live. Check out some of the other threads that have good ratings to see how they crosshatch their objects and try to see those lines in the figures. This and proportions will help your work out loads.

    daunting: thanks for the tips. Yeah one of the things that irked me about the live model drawing was the lack of a focused light source. when she was posing the professor just left the ceiling flourescents on and didnt provide a spotlight at all. So there were about 10 different lightsources

    I fully disagree with daunting.

    The proportions of the phantom are great - they are exaturated, but in this case to me it seems that it works very well. The slightly to small head opposed to the enormous paw and the masuline and heroic stand on these coloums of some legs - makes me think of travis charest somehow.

    I also believe the light is put very cleverly. The source seems to be right under the figure wich even reflects in the mask. This is very theatrical - he seems to stand on stage...

    I would much rather encourage you to work on your filling. Try to avoid this criss cross shading an rather 'model' the volumes and folds of the cloth with your strokes. It will become more delicate and dynamical.

    However the phantom is awesome...

    lewiston: thank you for the compliments, im not sure exactly which picture daunting was referring to. But I'm glad you recognized the lightsource and intentional distortion in the phantom. Ill be working more on rendering when class lets me have more than just a little bit of time to render something

    Decided to rename the thread, felt too negative, gotta be positive

    whipped out the good old metal gear solid

    ninja is a badass, especially in the new redone cutscenes

    was messing around with using some very bright cool and warm/advancing and receding colors to accent the black silhouette

    just sorta dickin around with it, about 1hr, PSCS

    WIP

    acrylic on cold press illus. board.

    edit:

    bleh, im tired

    desc: it's a project for my color theory class on optical blending. Thats why its a sorta fuzzy/pseudo-pointilist approach. So if you want the full effect squint or stand back. the scanner kinda ruined a lot of the color subtleties *shrug*

    finished the selfportrait, really it needs to be seen in person, the 3-dimensional quality to such thick application of acrylics results in some funky white highlights when the scanner gets done with it *shrug* but thisll have to do

    maybe ill try takin a pic with the digi camera...

    anyway, the scanner caused the contrast between the colors to go through the roof and it lost a lot of subtlety...again...ah well, photoshop can only do so much. Ill try to mess with it a bit more later

    est. 10-12hrs, acrylic on cold press illustration board. It took so long because of the stamping technique i used to produce it. dip a rubber pencil eraser into paint, stamp it on illus. board, rinse repeat ad nauseum

    storyboards

    Final project for a "Drawing for Storyboarding" class i took this quarter at SCAD. We could either board a part from one of three assigned movies or do one of two commercials. I chose to do a 10-15 board Ford F-150 commercial.

    all painter 8

    blah, sorry for such a late reply Sems. Been busy with a lot of nothing since school ended.


    For the Ford Ad i got an overall grade of 95/100. A very good way to end the quarter!

    was messing around with Painter IX this evening. Was doing some random stuff while surfing peoples webpages when i ran across a picture of Hardcore Pix's (http://www.hpx1.com/gallery_display_-80.html)

    well needless to say i was totally inspired and immediately began to redo my own Jedi that i'd been doodling around with. It's hardly what i'd call 'finished' but then again this is a sketchbook.

    ive decided August is going to be a bit of an 'art month' i suppose (well every month *should* be) right as things start to rev. up again for school this fall. I really want to push things this year. Go new places, do new things with my art. Anyway, I'm starting that this month. baby steps...

    and to start things off. just a fun 'warm-up' A kid in one of my classes (im helping teach comp. graphics, photoshop, etc to some 7th graders) asked me to draw master chief for him. A bit of a gratuitous non-adventurous fanart. But then what better way to start a 'year long' adventure with the badass of adventure himself?

    linework


    color to come


    edit:
    yeah the legs are cutoff, the digital canvas is a bit larger than the paper i originally drew on...

    didnt enter the thunderdome, kinda wished i had. was looking at the first round submissions and got inspired.

    I've always thought that evil should be attractive, even beautiful. That's what makes it so seductive and appealing.

    not close to done. I always liked how in Gargoyles they folded their wings over themselves like a cloak, so i used a similar idea here. Goin with your kinda run of the mill succubus/female demon/whatnot. I'm gonna try to throw in some more interesting features once i've got the form really solidified. The obligatory horns, and was also considering rotting feathers+scales on the 'wings/cloak' i liked the idea of a fallen angel character

    the very basic form of the body is there with some value thrown in to help determine lightsource and such. so far the most work has gone in on the face. still lots to do

    C&C welcome



    i'm guessing about 6-8+ hours more on this pic

    lots of gestures, anatomy, and one project (the others i havnt received back yet) from Life drawing this quarter, an amazing class to be sure. my professor is great, but more on that later

    some images are strangely cropped, youll have to excuse that, i dont have a camera and my scanner isnt the largest.
