    Jesus Food: Hey thanks, man! Yeah, that WWoman piece has a little of that going on there. She could use a little more toning and youngifying.

    rzicko: Oh cool, i appreciate that.

    mike butkus: Just happen to have one right here, Mike.

    No photo ref for this one - pencil in a sketch pad and a bit of photoshop for the faint freckles texture:



    Thanks for stopping by guys.

    Hey, Lou!

    Great to hear from you! Glad you found me here too. Any news on what's going on drawingboard? The site has been down for awhile now.

    Happy Holidays, my friend!

    #497 and #499 are great! Much life in the scenes

    I think it's the skintones in your digitals that are throwing them off. They're not quite natural...Maybe too much local color and highlights.

    Some really pretty drawings in here though!

    Thank you kiwigarbage. I agree about my colors. As others have said, I tend to use colors "straight of the tube". The ones you have indicated are better are those I have paid attention and kept those crits in mind.

    I think I found the "problem" (if it is a problem): you are so good with your lines that you depend too much on them.

    It's a problem, pixel cheetah, if what I think your saying is, perhaps I don't practice color work often enough. Or perhaps I should just start painting without drawing. Rely only on the color itself.

    I may have to try that.

    I haven't posted since before the New Year. Very lame on my part.

    So now that it's officially Spring, I am a little late here with my current "Winter Girl".

    She was in a cafe in San Francisco on a cold afternoon last week. She found a place near the fireplace. Lucky her, a prime spot. Lucky me that I happened to be facing the right way while eating lunch with a friend. Here she is from memory.


    And some Frazetta-esque harem girls:


    The sequence of the girl in bed is Ludivine Sagnier, sketched based on freeze frames from her movie "The Swimming Pool".


    Cheers,
    Yeti

    Thank you tronrobot.

    A couple of WonderCon SF cosplay girls I sketched from photos I took. I'd say these two were most gorgeous of the cosplay girls at WonderCon SF this year. At least on Saturday when I was there cheering on my Maverix Studios friends that were exhibiting.

    I did a little experiment with some photography of mine. Taken last weekend at the nearby waterfront, turned out a bit blurry, but for this purpose it's ok.

    Based on the theory that a group of people in an image, the point where the horizon cuts through the body, each person in the group is cut through at approximately the same point. For instance, if the horizon line cuts across the neck of a person in the foreground, it will cut across the neck of the person in the distance. It depends on how tall each person is, and if the ground plain is consistently flat.

    It's the same girl walking passed the camera. My digital painting is based on the approximate horizon in the scene, worked out some additional anatomy, skin tone and made my own seascape background.

    Finally I found your SB! I remembered it from several years ago (2006 I think) when I was just looking around CA that time. Your SB was one of the most impresive and still is today.

    I haven't been drawing from some long time, and I recently decided to resume again what for me is only a hobby; Made a new SB of my own and started to look for posts that I remembered as remarcable (one of them being your SB).

    Hope you will not mind that I will be studying some of your work in order to improve mine (mainly facial expresions).

    Otherwise you will get no crit from me, only wanted to say that I'm glad to re-enjoy scrolling through your SB.

    Also hope you will find some time to stop by my SB, I could really use a tip or two.

    All the best,

    Check out my SB and please leave a comment or something

    Well, thank you dac. 2006? That was a while back, indeed. Using my work as inspiration is very flattering, but do your best to draw from life - that's the best medicine!

    I'd be glad to drop by your SB. Thanks for the invitation.

    Took me forever to decide what to do with this piece since it was a line drawing last fall. Finally decided to color it up. Hope the palette works.

    I aged the cement a little. It was too clean.

    I took a step further and added some contrast to keep the focus more on the girl.

    Looks great so far! Is her expression supposed to be as she's a bit upset?

    Thank you, Alex. Yes, she is a hardened city girl with a grudge.

    Hhh...ok
    Like i said looks really cool so far...if you got some time, could you explain a bit about the way you work?
    What you use to sketch and draw, how you color, which brushes/tools you use?

    Alex.

    Well, thank you again, Alex.

    Everybody works a little differently I guess. I use pencil a lot to start a project. If I draw digitally, I use Sketchbook Pro and a Cintiq tablet. I paint in photoshop, I have CS3. Sometime I'll make custom brushes or I have downloaded some of these great brushes: http://chriswahlartbrushes.blogspot.com/

    I typically start with a solid background color and build on that in layers, always keeping my line layer transparent as a top layer. If I work directly with color I typically start with the medium value and then shadows and highlights.

    Sometimes I work in all gray scale first to get all my values and then use a color or overlay mode layer to add color on top:

    I don't use it too often.

    Hope that helps!

    Goofing around with a caricature of Buffy after watching a few episodes again recently. I probably could have pushed her features a little more, but I'll save that for next time.

    Pencil in sketch pad:
