Ok, off & on for 2-3 yrs now. I think I can draw & paint better than when I first started. I just do it because I love doing it
drawing inspired by puddhead.
great start on your SB.
Puddnhead is awesome!
That's all you need.I don't go to art school or very talented, but I'm a hard worker
Oddly enough, some of the best information I picked up on character design and drawing was in animation books. It really helped speed up my process due to the tricks animators use to produce their sequences quickly. You might check your library, I know mine here in Memphis carries a ton that would also be useful in addition to videos. Sometimes reading helps sink in the info better.
The character design looks cool, contrast is king though. Don't be afraid to get into those creases and add some shadow.
Some good paintings to reference for cloth are "swagger portraits".
Looks pretty cool, although i think the katanas may be too big, looks like it would be weighing her down a bit hehe. and like lady said, more contrast would be good, it'll add some feeling.
Keep going! More art!
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
Perspective 101, Concept Art 101, Games Industry info,Oil Paint info, Acrylic Paint info, my sketchbook.
Nice colored pieces!! I liked the warcraft pieces you did, just keep refining them till they're done. Would like to see some anatomy studies if possible. Keep em comin bro!!
And you say you are untalented pfff. thats a heap of talent tright there. yes look closer and you will find a master inside you. the first one is beautifull I like the soft contours the most.umm man your portfolia isnt working properly. Just letting ya know. and btw keep up the good work .wIll comeback and check the Sb.
I think something is wrong with my browser , other sites are behaving wierd too. lemme check though. hery isnt there a link to illustrations. the mouse is not clicking over it. niether on graffiti nor of fotos.Dunno man. Btw you can start posting your stuff here.Misc links are working fine too. About the design of the portfoli. The best way, I think is to keep it simple( for illustrations). But I duno much about graphic design , so cant crit much there.still the page look cool funky and all. Nice. and btw .. do post more.
Awesome lighting man!!
Keep working! and try to finish some.
Talent is the capacity of work as hard as you can on what you do. So if you feel you are untalented, just try to become talented working hard.
Hey doodle thanks for visiting my sb, much appreciated. I really enjoy post #11 and your last piece. I think you should work on both of those peices and fully finish them. Not much to crit, keep posting more, happy drawing
ok, I'm back again I haven't drawn, paint, or updated my sketchbook for almost a yr now. I'm glad i still find my sketchbook here. I just feel like doing digital paintin & update my sketchbook again.
