hey nice update and welcome back a semester worth of work in two weeks? ouuch that's rough well good luck to ya with it, I'm sure you'll pull through alright... the faces and such in the first picture look great! really nice shading on those, I especially like the girl holding the gum/cigarrette/whatever it may be to her mouth, great form and look to her. nice doodle page afterwards as well hehe, always interesting to see what other people doodle while in class/at work. the lady holding the paintbrush (I assume that's a paint brush at least) looks cool, nice and clean lines. keep it up and another welcome back
hehe, that lady holding the paintbrush is holding a little kakashi doll >.<
anyways, thanks for the comments! the class is basically over, only one more class period on tues. it's really easy because humanities is pretty basic.
more notes i drew on in class lmao...some with pen, some with pencil...sorry for the lined paper i know it's not really postworthy but some of it is fun at least ^^
and btw these are almost all done in basically complete darkness...my teacher thinks it's cool to turn off the lights while we take notes blargh! good news is i've been reading (if not drawing, at least i'm reading it!) loomis again. basically i draw the muscles all down and outline the basic form, then just practice drawing in pencil over and over right below.
me and my friend draw half and half pics
and something i drew during work about my life (in fact i scanned these in during work, i shouldn't do this =P)
@Farvus: thanks, i think i thought of removing the lines in ps but i forgot >.<
@Asoir: I don't feel like i've improved at all, but sure thing ^^
@Master 25 Days: hehe yeah i drew all during class. i even had a little desk mirror for self portraits that i had in my backpack but my friend was like NUH UH PPL WILL THINK YOU'RE WEIRD AND EGOTISTICAL
@glikster: yeah sitting next to my friend in class has it's downsides, i basically draw romantic pics, or pics of her and her cat as naruto characters
@Oki: um, they're from the loomis book?
sooooo yeah of course i didn't have time/energy to do the tdome cuz of time restraints...i started to sort of play with a basic coloring today for fun and i got really mad cuz it started to look good within a few minutes ("good" is very relative but give me a break, i sort of liked it)...i could have at least submitted SOMETHING...oh well, i had already paid for my tuition anyways to the workshop.
hehe, i've been sitting at my roommate's comp while she's away since my monitor sucks...she doesn't really use her Painter anyways...
5 minutes underpainting:
presumably it will be a little darker in mood, like this:
I saw some nice photos that reminded of me of the pinup I'm supposed to do of a friend. Here is a basic underpainting - i want the bg to be white so maybe it can be used as a desktop bg. i used the method my roommate uses - don't draw a sketch, just start painting. i don't think i like this method lmao!!!
nice work with your thunderdome piece, looks good so far. second one definitely has a darker feeling to it than the first, though I do like the clarity of the figure a bit more in the first one (that might just be the skin tone shows a bit more clearly in it). I like the last one alot as well, definitley came out well especially condsidering you didn't draw anything out. her leg looks a little odd around the knee, but I'm sure as you render it out it'll be fixed. nice, keep it up!
hey there! like the style you've got going, nice use of colour in the Paintings. hard to work out what to crit you on since im new D:, maybe try do a few more complete sketches? Some of the more comical stuff made me chuckle ("dont be sad" lol) seem very full of enthusiasm, keep it up!
@Onir: thanks, yeah the dark one was just to show what kind of feeling i wanted in the end.
@machzero: hehe...GET ADDICTED TO NARUTO! DO IT! it's easier if you watch the anime. although i admit i haven't watched it or any other show in a long long time.
@Spade: i'm trying to finish a piece yeah...i never can seem to usually cuz i lose interest after Painter crashes a billion times. I think the new version will save before a crash though, according to Rick, a Corel guy I talked to at the workshop. DL the update! (painter IX.5)
@glikster: yeah i'm trying to see if i like this method better. so far...no...at least on chars...
So yeah the workshop was fucking awesome. That doesn't even begin to describe it. I'm still experiencing it in my head right now...anyways for anyone who has any doubts...or even no money, I would sell my house/children if i had any to go to the next workshop
loomis study on the airplane:
tdome in the basement of the hostel..."banana fairy, bee who saved the world, cannibal and gangster communicate on a bridge, "masked warrior"
bought a brush pen set...BEST THING EVER!
carrrrrrnifexxxxx (inside joke). and me. and andrew lecturing on the bottom.
late night life drawing. the massiveblack guys got four girls to model in the hotel, it was great.
special thanks to hussar, ds, and others for lending me paints and board. i painted a face and ds fixed it...other ppl kept coming over and telling me it looked great...so i had to write something ^^ oh, and i tried to draw fox's symbol >.<
ART DONE BY OTHER ARTISTS:
late late late night sketch session with ds and matt:
after telling jason to draw hentai:
um...just boon. these are like r rated versions of his pencil case.
late late late late late night collab. fox did the head/body, mr. blonde did the body and i think boon...well you can prolly tell.
erilaz, my tea buddy!
dirty c drew this using beer.
and it's funny...but as much as we look at it we can't remember how to draw fox!!!
wow... I can see that the workshop worked... Damn I envy you so much...
And Mach, as much as I'd like to go to the workshop... I am definitely going to be the the over-protective, paranoid parent who, when she gets older, will greet boys at the door with a noose and a shotgun...
hey, the sketchbook is looking nice. Those drawings you got from the workshop are sweet. Nice progress through this thread. I"d like to see the girl in chair pic and the tornadoe one finished. Those were two cool ideas that should find completion. I'm going to second Farvus' suggestion way back there about the values on the right shoe. It pops right out of the picture. Needs less contrast to push it back a bit.
good lord great pieces! seriously these are all amazing; your brushpen work is looking really nice not to mention those lifedrawings/portraits. just inspired me like crazy as well I should mention definitely looks like you've improved alot, lookin forward to what you'll be putting out now
@glikster: and your daughter will rebel against you ^^
@JasonChan: of course i posted your picture! it's a masterpiece! >.<
@auden100: nice meeting you too!
@Dile: thanks...been trying to work on the anatomy.
@Onir: thanks...brushpens are so cool! *squeals*
@easy tiger!: haha it wasn't my board anyways =P yeah....i'm lucky that ds let me follow him everywhere >.< i would have been too scared to talk to the MB crew...jason bought me some drinks but i was terrified of him haha!
@Mr.Blonde: whatever, i'm jealous of your stuff. esp the pic you drew of me! my roommate loves it.
@Erilaz: whatever, why wouldn't i post your drawing?
@Farvus: you should update more often! ^^
@donkeyslayer: pssh of course everyone hearts fox!
@Master 25 Days: a blast is prolly like an extreme understatement. i'm going through withdrawal right now.
something i drew for the teen tdome...unfortunately my comp is at my parents' house so i didn't get to finish this...yet (determined to). topic is "final battle"...my battle against art frustration.
for the character of the week. topic is "ex noble lady whose son wants to die, during the french revolution."
nice update; really likin those sketches, you've got such clean lines and a nice sense of confidence in what you put down. that last one came out especially well... the digital piece is coming out really nicely as well. always amazes me how tight you seem to be able to bring your renderings to digitally. looking for a crit, but can't seem to find one.. keep it up either way, everything's looking great.
