Some quick facts:
I was born on Halloween , and I am 23 years old.
I'm currently enrolled in the CA Atelier and loving it. :P .
Note that Newer images are in the last pages (of course it depens on your thread viewing preferences .)
Just a random unfinished sketch. I usually can't help myself and paint a few highlights digitally.
Quick 10 minute concept. I had fun digitally too. =/
it's a foot!!!!!!
Hooray for woman power...yeah.. Did this one on my way back from Siggraph, no ref ( just in case the horror would not give it away, har)
pen practice of hands. no ref.
a pig! and the crowd rejoices!!
quick study from real life. i must improve my muscle work!
20 minute sketch. no ref.
I will promise to scan more and more, as time passes ( hopefully will have an actual painting..or.. semi-painting because then it would not be considered a sketch. hah! ) I am in the process of moving from hole in the wall A, to hole in the wall B. ( The joyous life of a student!). So that might slow down the process of posting but I'll be sure to come here often. It's about time I overcome my shyness. :D
Your use of white on the toned backgrounds is really effective! Are the backgrounds toned digitally too? Do you ever sketch on toned paper with white chalk/conte crayon/etc for a similar effect? (because the digital highlights look very natural)
I'm also really impressed with your hand sketches, they are very dynamic.
Wertle: Yeah the highlights are all digital. I've have worked on colored paper with conte, chalk, and pastel.. but iit was a long time a go, so maybe i should pick it up again, ne? Thank you very much for the thoughts, they are very appreciated!
Sawa: Thank you very much.. hands are kind of rouch, but i love how expressive they can be. I'll try to post as much as i possibly can. thank you.
Craig: Thank you for your comments. Hopefully I'll be able to put some colors on my next batch of drawings. And paints...man I am dying to get enough space to be able to paint... that and money. I want to try oils on pannel
Sve: thank you. Ah so much motivation
Blue Mech: I know. I get tired of digital sometimes, don't get me wrong, it is such an useful tool and very good, but you tend to loose feeling upon how things truly react and are aplied. I'll try and see if for my next batch, i can come up with more real media, rather than digital. Thank you for your comment as well.
Damn im impressed with your hand studies...and without reference too? Shoot. I can't draw hands for beans....feet too. I'm trying to improve on that aspect. It makes a heck of alot of difference in ur drawings if u can draw hands and feet well. Keep us updated with new stuff!
