I have been lax recently on actually showing my work to people and getting feedback, so hopefully this will really help. All I want to do is improve and see some progression. I do an animation degree and I'll be finishing that soon. I want to get back my passion for creating art and fun illustrations as a hobby though, as animating just seems like too much at times, here goes.
Any feedback appreciated and welcomed ^_^ I'll try my best to reply to everyone.
All these are from the past 2 weeks.
I used to stay away from drawing from photographs as I thought it bypassed most of the creative process. However, it fills up big gaps in my knowledge of form, light, muscles, etc, so now I use ref photos quite a bit.
None of these are particuarly finished. The first three just doodles in Painter. The other 3, pixel drawings using Photoshop. Strangely enough Painting helps pixel arting quite a bit. Well the last one is from a photo of me, but I realised I picked a bad photo - no smile and hamster cheeks ( ^_^ )
One of the good things about pixel art is it's easy to convert imagery to their basest forms... but this I haven't really done much of. Something else to work on.
SHare your thoughts. x
