I've posted this in a couple of places, bizarrely have had no replies, which tells me it's either bad or dull So I thought I would try here...
This is a sketch towards my next painting. It is a purely technical study drawn from reference, I'm looking to try and do some digital figure drawing and painting and refine my skills generally.
This is hand drawn straight into Photoshop with a Wacom 6x8, I created a rough outline first and then rendered it on a layer on top in a "pencil" style. I wanted to see how well I could emulate traditional pencils in photoshop, I think it looks quite convincing although a close up would give it away.
I see a problem with his left shoulder, and I've also made the whole of the shoulders wider than they should be, but if there are any other problems feel free to point them out
Any comments or crits would be great before I launch into the painting itself
Which foot looks odd? Left or right? There are no feet on the ref so I had to draw them from my imagination, looks like it shows!!!
As for chainsaws, no chance It's just meant as a life study, and to be honest I find chainsaws, guns, spaceships, big breasted chicks etc unbelievably boring, tiresome and predictable. No offence meant there, and to be fair it seems that what I find to be interesting subject matter doesn't do it for others either
Once I paint him he will be in an environment though, different to the ref, but at the moment I just want to get the figure right.
I realy like the hands.
Yep.. the head sizie is smaller - both feet are wrong.
The hat looks flat too :eek:
No chainsaw needed (just big breasts :p)
I hope it helps - you have very nice pencil render - if you made it from reference why you did more then in the photo?
You could compare it easyer - helps more in your study!
