    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Hello everybody,
    My name is Gabriel
    I'm a sketchbooks forum junkie

    My artistic statement is:
    There are so many
    . .soooo many amazing artist out
    there and in this world of so much
    visual media information
    sometimes
    audience wants to receive a message
    and go on with their life's
    some artist prefer to do
    1 illustration that will create
    a profound impact and be remembered forever,
    so maybe spending a lot of time on
    it is the way to go,
    i want to communicate many subjects
    there are so many things to show
    so i prefer a more impressionistic
    quick glance of something to convey
    the message and go on to the next part
    in this rushed life.

    so ill try make posts that have on they
    not much than a day or a couple of hours
    and hoping they entertain you or interest you
    for a moment

    Step1
    make the concept
    try do a top view and side view
    of the vehicle visualizing a contrast
    or armony in shapes and a interesting variety
    i choosed side view in perspective so silhouette
    is important here

    Step2
    Create the perspectived linework drawing
    and choose the lighting direction to better
    show form i liked the idea of cast
    shadows on overlapping objects
    so decided this and to show roundness of back motor

    Step 2.5
    i select the linework and contract the selection
    and erase to make linework thinner and do a
    value blob behind and then start rendering it

    Step3
    Render in B&W using a hard brush
    then on opacity blend the edges of values
    (i need to get better at that)
    do a layer on top and constrain objects to certain
    values or also select them and lower the contrast or modify
    brightness, pilot value range between 80 to 100 stripes
    maybe 20 to 35 etc etc then color balance it
    trying to make cool shadows warm lights or viceversa
    and add noise . . done

    maybe i should had use the airbrush . . .

    alright heres another
    using the same method
    going for a more 3/4 view
    this time, had to redesign it
    on the run . . i guess i should
    use some feather or soften
    some of those edges
    specially on far part of
    cast shadow on the floor

    ok so now lets try the same
    approach but with a character
    im using the book about costume design
    on the page of french army i think

    Step1
    do the overall proportion and division
    weight and rythim, it was too much
    curvy so i transformed it or skewed it
    and i tend to do thin figures so made it
    wider

    Step2
    do the linework having in mind
    the perspective

    Step3
    do the silhouette . . does it works?
    do i see a human figure from far away?
    yes, well you got a big part solved by now
    plot the lighting direction and plan
    the cast shadow on floor too... make linework
    thiner using the method i mentioned on
    past posts

    Step4
    if you listening to music this is the
    time to do that air drum or guitar solo
    before going on . . rest and keep up

    Step5
    Render and then maybe tweak
    genral values of things remember
    a black suit might not have that
    0 value highlight like metal but
    a more 80 to 90 value range
    finish apply PS filters

    Italy is champion of the world!!
    . . . . .

    ok

    . . . .

    Step1
    first plan the overall concept
    of the robot, this time im being
    dirty i dont care ill fix it later
    i just want to get started, make
    as many doodles until you hit the one
    that will keep you for hours in front
    of the computer

    Step2
    Same steps as above, nothing changed
    im really scared now by color so
    ill keep on until i feel comfortable
    to throw another ball to juggle
    this time used an overlay layer
    on top of everything to make some graphics
    on the concept

    oh yeah theres something different . .
    i made this guy walking !!!! i usually do them
    just standing there or flying so walking
    was a good challenge
