dejakhalz: thanks I'll make sure to show some process shots of how I work greyscale for next time I update
atlantik: thanks dood!
Draniel: Yeah creatures are easy to make up because you can bullshit more and people are less likely to call you on it I need to beef up on some studies soon. I need to stop saying "i need to do studies," and actually do them I don't really know how long. I probably spent like 45 minutes to an hour on the first one, because I kept changing things. The frog was maybe 15 minutes, the lower right was probably around 45 minutes because of constantly changing things. The monkey was probably 5 minutes. I've found that most of my time gets eaten up in the decision making process, not the actual drawing.
starbones coffin: thanks dude!
c@s: thanks! I like that one too It's kind of funny to see where all the different influences come from when designing things
atlantik: thanks dude. You're right about my pencils, I really need to learn how to use them better
A little acrylic action [oh man it feels like it has been sooo long since I painted traditionally] and some progress shots of a value study.
step 1: line drawing
step 2: block in large shapes
step 3: refine and adjust; accidentally save over step 2
step 4: render and adjust
step 5-infinity: render and adjust.
I kind of got lazy on this one, I think. :/ kind of washed out some of my values and didn't really finish it. Still good practice regardless It's basically the same way I work when doing digi work. line drawing and then block in large shapes, then render render render....hopefully this was a little useful? :/ I feel like there isn't much to learn from my image after accidentally saving over step 2 :<
Holly **** those grayscale steps are fantastic love your way to render but I think I can't do that,seriously I can't I'm still afraid to start render over my apinting because I always thinking I'm gone screw it and that rendering looks really scaried for me I'll give it a try!
mmm yeah I'm agree with you about your acrilyc painting,maybe you can adjust a bit more the light and shadws and it will gone look really nice
Cheers mate and big thanks for sharing!
I'll catch you later
atlantik: the great thing about digital is you can just keep drawing over the old image with no wait time and no worries of opacity. Just play around with different methods
idiot apathy: funny thing about that whole LMS I have started 3 and they were all shit so I tossed them. I'll get something done, but I just can't seem to find an idea that I can really get excited about.
here's some digis from the german sketchmeet. Some pencils from the sketchbook to follow in a few days once I get ahold of the scanner. The last one is Jens and me being silly from not sleeping.
aww yeah man, I can't wait to hang out again. I was at your place for a week last time, and even that seemed to short 3 days seems like only a few hours in retrospect We'll def. need to hang again sometime, maybe when school is out [hopefully sooner ]
here's some of those afore mentioned pencils. School has a bit a not so hot scanner, so I hope I didn't end up butchering these too much. Attachment 341957
