Just wanted to drop by. Man, you've been making some huge strides in your studies. Nice going with that portrait that you did in Idiot Apathy's thread. Good confidant lines in those studies also.
Your lines are getting pretty.
Also--if you have the opportunity, study colors from life too. Even if it's just whatever you can see out of the nearest window.
Easy with the asspats, guys.
starzik: Thanks again.
jedininjaman: Will do. Thanks.
entdroid: Glad you dig, thanks.
Trashy: Thanks, man.
Flaskpost: Thanks alot, dude.
Sedig: It occurred to me a few times to paint what's outside my window but I was always afraid the lighting would change too quickly, but I have to give it try. Thanks.
Getting back into anatomy stuff because I suck. Yay!
Crap faces galore. I really feel like I'm missing out on something about drawing faces, don't feel like I'm making much progress with them...
Cool...5stars! I wont more concept designs from you
Verehin: 5? Thanks. I might do a few doodles if I get any ideas, but right now I'm hardcore focused on some studies.
Just finished another colour study.
hi there thx for dropping by my SB
nice sketching going on. you really seem like the serious type
i was about to comment the portrait copy of that asian girl but then i saw you had updated it. But then I noticed the hair - it looked so noisy now how about doing another round on the hair where you use simple but stylistic lines (i assume you have a drawing tablet) and still keep close to the original. nothing wrong with stylizing a study afterwards you know
nice studies. gettin better, with the life drawings tho, if you find your proportions getting wonky keep checking the negative space and contact points.
eparts: Do you mean the hair is too messy? I didn't put much time into the hair, but yeah it is pretty messy and would look better if I had put some thought into it. Thanks.
algenpfleger: Yeah... I'm just taking it easy with colours, they make me angry.
Salacuis: Thank you. I don't have any finished works. It's sad, I know.
TOOLED!: Thanks dude. I definitely do have trouble with proportions in life drawing. I'll keep those points in mind.
A Michelangelo study, value study and some crappy faces.
The lines on that Michelangelo study are oh so pretty, and those face studies aren't as crappy as you think. That value study looks pretty good, but almost a little contrast-y. Judging by the technical prowess you demonstrated with your last value study, I blame the photograph. Would you be willing to post the photo (if it's not too racy...) alongside the study like you did with the last one?
Sedig: Whoa, you're giving me way too much credit, haha.
'Technical prowess'? Come on, man, that's bullshit, lol.
The photograph is high contrast, the shadows are black and the highlights are about 80% gray or so, I bumped it up a slightly.
Besides, I didn't spend anywhere near as long on this one compared to the last one, not to mention I went overboard with the soft brush.
I'll post the original in a minute.
I bought a large mirror, yay.
Two fresh self portraits. Severely screwed up the eyes on the first one, they're almost two eye-widths apart. Had another go and made the same mistake again.
