those look great! my one crit would be that when drawing the lighter tones on top of the silohuette, try not to keep the highlight so central- at the minute everything looks as tho it has a big dark border because the hilight doesn't hit one edge or the other.
does that make any sense??
Meatsworthy thanks for dropping buy I’ll try it without the lines next time, I'm not sure if I’ll get my proportions as good but I’ll give it a go.
Cakeypigdog Cheers sir
Oishiiniku thanks chap, I agree about the glow brush it was handy at first but I'm finding it a bit to heavy now, thanks for the tips Geezer
Newman cheers guy, good point about the boarder it is too heavy, I’ll bear it in mind tomorrow night when I produce some more
emily g thanks for stopping by Emily hope your well
Ok that all the replies done, they were probably the most I've had in such a short space of time so I must be doing something right. Anyway here’s the last lot of digital life drawing I've done these were done before your replies so I'm yet to try out the tips from you (cheers) but I’ll give them a go tomorrow night at my next life drawing session.
the bottom one is lovely, she really does pull out the loveliet poses that one!! hope we get here more often in the future, she is fun to draw and paint she is!
i reckon you should play with a different brush: i find the pallete knife makes all your mark making to similar in scale.try mixing in a bit more work with one of the variable brushes for some fat to thin goodness! as i said tonight at the session i think you should play with the flesh tones more: get more variation from fleshy to harder areas etc.
exceptional stuff ryan, you just keep on getiing better and better mate. keep raising the bar!
This is bad, I'm only on page two and I have no stars (I know they’re not everything but they are nice aren’t they) I’ve got a bit of a backlog at the moment of work to post but I may just start with a pic I did for a thunderdome the other week. I only used painter for this one, which was intresting as I would normal use Photoshop for some of the graphical stuff but decided I wanted to see how much I could do with out leaving the program. It turned out to be a lot which surprised me and showed how much of painter I still have to explore. Well enough chating here it is, as ever crits are always welcome
