I actually wondered where you had gone to, i remeber replying to your old thread many moons ago.
From what i can remeber, it looks like youre doing better with your real life stuff now... (sorry, its late and i cant be fucked to load another webpage - i browse with tabs and im trying to like get through them all before i pass out on my keyboard, hell i shouldnt really be writing this but i want to)
I know how you feel with gestures, i often find it less stressfull to just use a medium sized black brush then just rub it everywhere (..the brush), after that i normally just delete shit with the eraser. That is, i find it more relaxing to just slap shit down then erase it in a fast haphazard manner. But thats me and youre you so each to their own!
(Yes, i am liking your recent loada-stuff from 8 onwards, and not just because it has girlies)
/.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please
Hah! Unfortunately, my server/website is down and I don't know when I'll be getting everything back. (long story) I suppose this is why Manley implemented the attaching images deal. I don't think you can comment on them proper like I had been doing though. Either way I'll go back and add them when I have time.
Here's some life work, a Pteradactyl fencer, and my sketch for the Nov 1 event today. I'll put up the finished version onces its uhh... finished.
Website is down so all my old images are gone for now. Total bummer and I don't feel like uploading them all to CA. Anyway, here's a portrait I did today experimenting with opacity via Wacom pen. I think I'm quitting on this one but I'll start another soon.
In a wiser move, I'm going greyscale. I'm too rusty for colour, and even at my oiliest I'm not skilled enough to do colours proper. Here's my first WIP. I'm trying to avoid eye-dropping myself as much and trying to not overblend, leave it more brushy.
I messed with her eye some and rendered her boobs more. Her jacket and the right hand have also been rendered. I'm getting there. I'm worried about fucking up everything with the hair.
edit: Messed with stuff here and there. Working on the jeans.
edit2: removed previous 2 WIPs, I plan on making a gif afterwards anyway. I did the jeans and all that's left is the hair. I put it off until now and I'm really afraid to fuck it all up now.
edit3: last WIP gone too. Here's my current revision and the greyscaled photo I'm drawing off of. I'm looking at it now and I'm seeing a lot more differences. I'm going to keep working on it, discouraged as I may be. I'm mainly going to concern myself with fixing the smile now and finishing the hair obviously. The lower left shoulder and smaller inside of the right-jacket I don't think I'll get around to.
edit4: Almost done? Help?
edit5: trying to break it now
edit6: I guess I'm done now. Now on to other projects! Here's the final and I'm going to try and upload a gif or swf of all the WIPs together, those are fun. The gif is above the limit and I don't think we can upload gifs. OK, link to the .swf here! http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j1...ech/_eaWIP.swf
