Hiya' miss thang. Thanks for stopping by my SB! Yeaaayy for green tigers!!
Wowee, you are improving leaps and bounds from the word go. I love the stuff at the beginning of this thread, the cartoonish guys and the people of the fro'. Very quirky and original.
Even better is the progress you've made in wildlife and portraits. That last self-portrait is friggin awesome and the one with you and a friend(?) above it...good stuff.
But one of my favorites on the thread so far is the black woman with the tigers. Her face is beautiful, something about her expression blows me away. It's hard for me to look elsewhere in the piece, actually. Damn, I think I'm in love...is she referenced from something? The tigers are good too. One crit is that, as is, the tigers are all the same value scale and so they run together- hard for the eye to separate. I want you to push the values just a bit further on it, if you dare. I think that would take it to another level.
Dave: yeah, I wear that necklace every day now haha. thanks love!
Piranha clan- Thanks so much! The lady is referenced from a photo, I haven't drawn very much from my mind lately. I want to get better at portraits so I get a good sense of what faces look like in my mind. I was gonna go back and touch up that drawing before I put spray fixative on it, since its getting all smudged in my sketchbook, so I will try to separate the tigers.
Rhineland- thank you!
Some cute things & nude ladies I drew yesterday:
Just the lines for this lady, I'll shade her in today probably maybe
Anyhoo, your naked ladies are looking awefully naked and ladylike, ( ) but I think you need to work a little bit on edge defenition. Not as in making a huge stroke around your subjects, but trying to keep at least that outer edge nice n clean.
Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeyeyeyeahyeah 2nd page party woooooooo -confetti- -party hats-
anubis713: awe thanks! and I do love drawin kittens. i love drawing them so i can stare at them and wish I had them for real. Is that sad?
Nom_the_puppet: I'll try! I've had a bunch of ideas for more animal babes to draw, I just never get around to actually doing it. Soon! ps. i like your work a lot.
Rhineville: Wow someone actually came back here more than once! youre definitely right though. I've been trying to make my lines cleaner, my hand always just wants to go over and over the same line. Trying to train myself not too.
Well here's a collage of myself I was working all last night on. Made out of all cutouts from magazines. It's a part of a present for my dad that my little sister & I are working on. She's making herself, & I did myself, & we're both making his face, & then cutting them out and putting them in a composition on a page with some other thingsss.
Well yeah anyways, here it is! heres my face. I cheated on the ear. It was too hard.
I like the collage work - I saw an exercise on value and color in a book once that suggested that technique, but I never got around to it. I'll have to give it a crack now that I've seen how cool yours looks
