    Rogfa's Sketches and Unfinished

    I think this will be a good chance to share some stuff I like but doesn't fit in any other thread.

    Thanks man. I did this one tonight. Had Corrine Bailey Rae in mind. I think I went a little too ape-shit on the impasto effects but just...can't...stop...the...sparkles...

    nice! i love the range of colours you work into your skintones.
    how about rendering up more than the faces tho? it would be great to see some more balanced (in terms of finished/not finished) pieces.
    looking fowards to more!

    Thanks man, I've tried and studied hard on my painting. I promise I will get back to some of these and finish them. I really want to create a couple full body concepts of my Afro Chick.

    I wasn't feeling much like drawing tonight so I worked on just some gestures. I want to make my figures more dynamic, lower the horizon, raise it up -- that sort of thing.

    I really like the way with your digis how youve made your focus points very detailed in comparison to the rest of the piece. Great Sb. I also like the painter portrait. Keep it up man.

    Wow. Thanks for all the comments. I have lots of sketchbooks to check out at work. Here's another one I did today. About an hour which is pretty fast for me. I used PhotoShop after viewing some of Coro's PSD files in the exclusive thread. Very cool use of the blending modes and layers. This is the actual resolutions I used. Probably should have increased that before I started to detail but PhotoShop will just chug at print size.

    *EDIT - I decided to work this one over some more.

    I'm really loving the sketchbook thread. No pressure for Finished art, just draw. I can't leave this one alone, I brought it into Painter to finish it up. Still a wip but it's coming along good.

    Hey Rogfa I'm in love with your stuff man seriously, it's just so atmospheric and alive.. I love the alien (3rd pic) and the gestures. Got any tips on how you're studying/learning, or how you've been learning? Eh kind of a weird question but I'm curious

    Woke up this morning, found out my signature was gone..

    Hi Coen, thanks for the kind words. I've been learning on my own with the help of CA and a lot of books and dvds. Along with that, referencing master works and just good ole observation. But I'm still a long ways away from where I want to be. I wish I had went to school or just have classes in my area. I think I would be further ahead if I had someone to study from.

    For anatomy, it was recommended that I check out George Bridgman and his books have been excellent (I have Constructive Anatomy and Life Drawing) and they are very inexpensive too. Andrew Loomis is a really popular recommendation and his books are great but there is a lot of information in them and as a beginner I didn't know where to start with them.

    For the gestures, I'm a huge fan of Bruce Timm (Batman and justice League cartoons). His figures have weight, they are grounded. Look for that single line of action that goes through the spine. I posted some things about that on another thread (LINK).

    I'd recommend drawing as much as you can. Draw everyday. I personally don't like using sketchbooks, there's this pressure that I feel that there has to be good work on all the pages and fear of messing up an expensive book, get a sketchbook that you can tear sheets out of or just take some copy paper and put it in a clipboard.

    good luck!

    Thanks Ryan, I want to experiment with just lighting on that piece. Everything else was secondary. Here is one I did at work today on my lappy 386. I'm not 100% sold on the body, it's a little too dinosaur, and I might take it in another direction but I like the wrinkles around the eyes, ergo the close up.

    Hey Rogfa thanks for the link, seems like a nice system to build a gesture. What kinda brush settings do you use? I just got started and only use a default brush with 100% opacity and opacity set to pen pressure, works nice in some ways but often gets kinda weird too..
    I'll check out these books, got Loomis now but I'm not really into his approach or something.

    Nice creature sketch you got there, I think the wings should be some bigger to lift his weight, keep it up

    Woke up this morning, found out my signature was gone..

    I really fought getting PhotoShop setup so I could actually paint in it. I still do 99% of my work in Painter but learned a few setting tricks from the Montreal workshop. Pretty much everyone that demoed with Photoshop had their opacity set to 100%, Flow set to 75% and both set to pen pressure.

    For my main painting brush, I lower the spacing to 20% and set hardness to 85%. Here's a screen shot and also a zip file with all my brushes, actions, swaches and tool presets. I use PhotoShop CS so I'm not sure if this is all compatible with other versions. Have fun!

    Note that my brushes may include other people's brushes that I've added to my library, apologizes to anyone who I've nabbed from but I really can't remember who I've got them all from.

    EDIT: I forgot to explain my wacom settings, I set it just below the default pressure sensitivity, just to to prevent having to press too hard on my tablet, but experiment with this. Also, set the stylus buttons to keystrokes "[ and ]" for brush size, nothing unique there. But the best tip I can give is create an action to flip the entire canvas horizontal. I'm left handed and all my strokes start leaning in that direction, keep flipping to straighten it out.

    Wow Rogfa thanks alot for that, I'm gonna check it all out in an hour or so, I really appreciate the help! Oh btw I ordered those 2 Bridgman books today, they're so cheap too.
    Nice alien monkey damnit I can't wait to get proper skills! Think I gotta sharpen my drawing skills first before getting on to painting, alltho I like to paint too.

    Gotta get some food and a shower now, thanks alot.

    Edit: I like these brush settings, I used to have brush size set to pen pressure too which was one of the things that made my settings so annoying. I love sketching like this, it's very intuitive. Gotta go drawing again now, thanks again

    Thanks sonboss, I did a quick demo of how I paint hair. Hair is no different than painting clouds, trees, cars or tanks. All these objects have form. I hope this makes sense.

    Hey Coen, glad they are working out for you. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Here's an update to my cigar guy.

    I'm actually getting pretty tired of this one but I am not going to give up yet. It's finally starting to feel right. I've got that bad habit of just placing my figures standing straight up. I tried to put him standing more in space.

    Wow, that alien is sweet, dude. This last guy's head seems a little off, size-wise... can't quite place it. Greate textures though. Can't wait to see some more character concepts!

    Hi gaijin, I know what you mean, this piece is very stiff. I started with just a head and I detailed that out, then I drew the body in afterwards and it just never really flowed well. I won't make that same mistake again.

    Thanks Frank, here's another one. I wanted to see how photoreal or hyper-real I can get. Still a long ways off....

    Another WIP. Something like a science fiction character. I want his costume to be like a solider uniform.
