careful with the turpentine though. That stuff rots brain. Hard to paint when you can control your hands.
Okay, its been a while, Ive got a few snapshots of some stuff I'm working on. These are all WIPS, pretty much, or just initial sketches I did before I draw them on nicer and larger paper.
This one is actually a pig fetus that I've distorted and screwed up pretty much. We have some preserved animals in our biology lab and I drew the fetus one time, (although I lost the sketch) and decided to draw it larger and mess with it.
The second one is for something Im gonna enlarge, its just an initial sketch.
And the last is just for kicks, I drew that on the back of a board game's cover when I was like 5.
Hito- Thanks man! Yeah I am, all windows and fans open and on. Although I'mna take a break from the oil painting now that were done with it in our class, I'll go back to it in a few weeks maybe when I gather enough money to buy some turpentoid and less scented materials.
Andy P-hehe my friend justified the facial distorions cause of the rhyme and humpty falling. Yeah, I gotta pick on color theory a bit more. Thanks for stopping by!
Hyver, Some_guy/Mike - Hey guys, thanks again for the loads of help youve given! I really appreciate it!
patdzon - YEp, nasa pinas pa ako! Init dito! Grabe! Masaya din naman ang ulan minsan, hehe, signal 2- walang pasok sa hs!
Just a quickie...I should start posting my sketches.
Anyway this is for my art elective:
Im in the process of painting it right now.
Ill post up the full shot next time, but heres a detail of what I gave my friend for her birthday.
Here is a GUIDELINE, that I fixed up in photoshop. I used the dodge and burn, as well as the contrast options in photoshop and made myself a guide for fixing up the original drawing. Still in the process of re-doing the original drawing. Most of these crits are from a bunch of people from these forums who are friggin awesome and some from my own crits.
very very nice pencils.
love the nose on this guy
keep to it
the pig in the tube is really good.
you're getting good.
I really love how your pig fetus has fleshed out (oh, so punny!) You really took care to render out those little skin folds and veins and it shows that you really enjoyed that bit. You sicko! it's great that you did your own photoshop fix as well, you've caught a lot of the issues that I would have brought up. Heightening the contrast around the head was a good call.
With your latest art elective piece, you're getting more expressive with your faces, but only a teensy bit! I think having the pursed lips and wide eyes is fine for this expression, mind you, but let's see some open mouths and contorted cheeks in the future, girl! I need to amp up my own expressions too... it's hard. ._.
Miss you tons!!
dile, tigermilk, hito- Thanks a bunch!
Steph-too true, gotta open up em mouths and push em cheeks, ill work on those more and ill post em up THanks! miss ya too!
quickie update, i just got a wacom two days ago. Spent almost 90% of the past two days waking up at noon and sleeping at 2 am painting infront of the computer. Most of which ive scrapped and trashed. Especially for the past two hours where ive been trying to do a self portrait and almost tried to yank all of my hair out. Cant seem to draw my friggin' nose. Anyhow I'll post one up once ive felt they looked showable.
Im new to this tablet Thang, so PLEASE Crit. I needsta get the hang of this thing.
Hey man. Great stuff with those 3 self portraits, I really like. I love self portraits! Glad to see that you got a wacom too, seems like your on the right path. Just keep it up brother!
jake- Thanks man! Although those arent actually self portraits...theyre well just portraits of this clown dude i made up on the spot. But thanks though! And im not a guy, im a girl hehe. But its cool man,dont worry about it, im easily thought of as a guy cause of my username Got any suggestions though for Self Portraits? I'll post one up eventually. Im horrible with the likeness thing. And seeing the portraits youve got in our SB thread, got any tips?
Anyway the master reproduction thing. Im thinking of starting over.
