    It's been a while since I've painted a girl in armor so here's an hour and a half or so worth of work. Might as well also re-post the enviro from the last post on the previous page.

    Gonna try doing a bunch of really quick photo studies like algenpfleger suggested. Here are two 20 min studies.

    Here are more invented figures. I was running out of ideas so i looked through old figure drawings to get poses and then made up the anatomy from my head.

    Edit: Here's another 20 min photo study as well.

    Solid improvement man I think you need a bigger texture brush library though, that'll help you out a lot especially when doing quick environments.

    It's really interesting to have the graphite and PS drawings of the same model. Your PS studies are looking better and better. Her face and skin tones are showing real progress.

    Hey Wes! I'm liking your life paints, they are starting to look pretty darn solid! With speed paints, try playing around with overlay layers to give you some hue shifts. This should help you achieve a better feel of depth.

    Anyway, great updates, awesome to see you post so much! (I need to increase my update speed too haha)

    Playing around with edges and composition and stuff. Pretty soon i'll have more time to study digital painting so I'll be updating more often again.

    Here's my final sculpture - either 15 or 20 hours of work (i forget XD) Anyway it was a way different process because there was no armature, just clay, so it is built from the ground up.

    Cool sculpt! The life drawings are coming along nicely. The speed paints are cool too. They could use some edge refinement - I like unrefined edges but they need to be contrasted with some sharp edges to help the eye settle. Nice work - best of luck!

    Hey Wes! That's a very nice sculpt, much better then the last one you did ! Your life drawing is getting much better too, though I think you need to push the value scale a little more (I'm not sure if the photo is averaging out some of the values - some of my life drawing don't turn out too well on camera).

    In terms of painting, I think right now you need to do some longer studies from life or good photo as the ones from your mind are looking better.

    Keep posting!

    those life drawings are excellent man! the car looks nice too!

    watch your edges! edges do soooo much for a painting, learn how to tighten them up, and then when you can do that, try to learn about soft edges and hard edges and how to use them proporly.

    cheers

    shit, every time I turn around this stuffs better. Life paintings looking really good. I'd say from where you're at now, you probably need to start using bigger brushes, as the smaller messy marks make the form not read very well. Also saves some time. Car is sweet, though wheels are a bit messy. Heh, guess I'll just keep going with the crits. On your enviros, mess around with atmospheric perspective, i.e. stuff far away has less contrast, mid has a bit more, and close is very contrasty. Also, never use straight black. Black does not equal contrast, but screws your color harmony and values. Also mess around with saturation to create distance. But seriously, drawings looking pretty good.
