    Fipse´s irregularities - Fresh from the grave ... 05.8.09

    Here we are again - me and the dreaded virtual sketchbook. I began a new "real" sketchbook and though this could be a good start to post again. Anyway I hope that I can keep this up-to-date and running and won´t have such a big break due to overwork and rut ...

    Here´s stuff to start with, I try at the moment to get a better and more controlled grip on colours with more or less success.

    hi

    i seen some of your post several times before,
    the first and second works has a very attractive style line and color (especiall the face of the woman)
    when i look at this sword and her arm (at the right) i don't feel it weird to see cow-boy like girl with those things: how did u achieved that ???!!
    same things with the second one

    I agree with ^ . . . I think the color harmony in the first one is definately the best - very nice image. Looks like you're at a good stage to pursue color too; I really can't find much to crit in terms of anatomy, proportion, or perspective in your figures. . .the poses could probably be a little more dynamic, with better awareness of the center of gravity (I'm thinking of #3 here) but I know that's not really what you're concentrating on here. In terms of color study, I'm sure you've seen fredflickstone's incredible color demos and tutorials around this site. His ability to convey the concepts is (in my opinion) completely unmatched - definately check them out again if you haven't read them for a while.

    A big part of using color is to avoid oversaturating everything - you did quite well in the top one and also the third one, but the fourth and fifth seem oversaturated throughout - it'll make the color seem muddy and uninteresting, compared to a single area of high saturation surrounded by low saturation. Color's _hard_ but very fun, keep it up!

    Hi and thanks for the nice comments!

    I´ve been overworked and quite in a rut the past few month but I´m stable now . I even hope I can post more or less regular in the next time - whatever this means in my case.

    Hi Robbie, long time no see! In fact I don´t think I´m any better than before - I just took my time with some of the drawings and didn´t rush them.

    Endregan
    You see why I disappeared up there. I hope the rut is over - I´m just waiting for my vacation and get into gear again

    I tried to give the armour and weapon a victorian style, mainly in the decoration. I think this helped a bit to give an overall coherent picture.

    My boring poses are really a problem for me, somehow I´m alway stuck in historical illustration where there´s the need to show most of the figure. I should take a look at Ron Lemens stuff again, I´ve done mostly anatomical studies in the past and colours are really diffcult for me. I tend - as you have seen - to oversaturate, partly it´s a problem with my monitor that is quite bright. But I surely will have an eye on it.

    Thanks again

    Fipse

    :edit: lowered the saturation of the saxon a bit - on my monitor it´s nearly grey - so I hope the figure is more readable now.

    hey fipse... cool stuff in here. keep working on your anatomy, as everyone should.
    also... try making your lines more flowing and smooth. try to do some blind contours (where you put your hand on the paper and not look at it... then you try to draw something you see). that helped me a bit. keep up the good work.

    those lifedrawings are not bad fipse.
    just try to shade cleaner and smoother.
    after all you shade to define forms and not to texturize the figure.
    maybe do some head-only studies next time. the head is like the most important part of any drawing and also one of the hardest so some extensive practice in that field will never harm ones art.

    keep it up!

    Update 14.04.05

    Found some time to draw again. This will be my last post before I go for 2 weeks on holiday where I´m hopefully able to make further studies.

    odds
    Point taken, will have a look at it. Thanks for commenting!

    Dan.v.D
    I know that I´m sometimes to hasty with my shading. With this session we haven´t had good lighting that made my shades even more insecure. I normally tend to do more on the heads but have neglected it this time. Anyway I think, too, that a portrait session would be a good thing.

    Here´s the wip and the colouring of a drawing that I recently made for the DSG "Cthulhu noble" Didn´t finish it in time but found some time again this evening. This time a quite monochromatic approach.

    And some black and white sketches I made. The one with the boat was made in situ.

    I hope I can send my irregularities a bit more regular in the next time.

    Had to do the costume and pedantic as I am this took some time. Here´s now a WIP for a new project I´m working on atm. I´m illustrating for next years Battle of Hastings Reenactment the different types of norman warriors and started with norman archers.

    Update 06.06.05

    O.k. found some time to colour my last sketch. Not everything worked out the way I wanted it but my "Customer" is happy. The figures are based on the Bayeux Tapestry of about 1070 AD with some additional research of mine. For illustrations of this kind I need often more time for research than for the actual drawing. Thanks especially Cookiedough for some tips in IRC. They have to be on a white background because they will be cut out for the publications and on the website - the shadow is jsut added for CA.
