This was my first completed painting in Painter.
I used the Chinese woman from Memoirs of a Geisha for reference.
A self portrait of sorts.
Started out painting over an image and did the second half freehand.
My goofy dragon I did for fun
Somewhere in the neighborhood of 16 hours.
A 2 hour painting I did for a speed painting challenge.
my first attempt at back lighting.
All taken from internet pictures (softcore porn anyone?) and sketched on cheap paper.
I really need work here...

hey man got a good start here bravo, keep at those figure drawings as they seem to need the most work when compared to the standard of your digital paintings
April 28th, 2006 #4
thanks, and no kidding... figure drawing kills me, always has.
anyone know any good resources for it? im stuck in Japan at the moment and finding a figure drawing class will be hard enough, stomaching what will surely be an insane price will be even harder. my gf wont let me get near her with my camera, much less with clothes off. im going to go into the city today and take my camera, but does anyone else have any suggestions?

some more practice nudes i did today. these things sure kick my arse.
Men are somewhat ok because i have found that i can use muscle locations for reference in building the structure, but women give me all kinds of trouble.
(sorry the image is funky, i had to adjust the image i got from my camera cause it was awful. no scanner...)

well today's stuff didnt turn out real well. the left two are from reference, the right one is from my head... speaking of heads, his in in the wrong place. think im gonna go screw around digital for a bit now...

here is today's stuff. for some reason it always looks better WHEN im doing it. then i step back afterwards and think "wtf"... but oh well. live and learn.
if anyone has ANY feedback, suggestions, anything, please let me know. thanks! I really want to figure out what it is that's holding me back, askide from lots more practice. but these just dont look very fluid or convincing. *sigh* (oh, and the levels were slightly altered in PS on these so that you could see them clearer as i dont have a scanner... )

Well today i went to norther Osaka to the 1970 expo grounds. came back dead ass tired so this is all i got done. i think i will do more with it tomorrow as it looks ok. gonna build me a cyborg. the character's left arm shoudl be big, but the rest should be mostly correct i hope. this is done without reference. C&C greatly appreciated.
(... his feet suck. will fix those tomorrow)

alright... i finished sketching up that cyborg in painter. i will say now i am really unhappy with it, but i already spent too long on it. any suggestions are welcome. =) (the head is really bad... by the time i got to it, i knew i wasnt liking it much any more)

My heads are horrid so i thought i would spend some time studying an artist i really admire. ( Kim Hyung-Tae ) His faces are really top notch if you are into the whole anime look.
so here you have it. C&C greatly appreciated.
