recently I've been less enthusiastic about drawing, just doodling stuff here and there, nothing worth displaying. I've instead focused on colours, trying to exercise getting it right from the start with little corrections afterwards. been browsing trough lots of photos and mullins' paintings and analyzing the nuances of value, saturation and hue.
calculating all that just fries the brain, gave up on the last one and just went with cheap layer effects
should I be worried that the thread icon still hasn't bothered to appear? or is there perhaps a well hidden option somewhere to turn it on?
looked through the sb...great stuff...on the subject of the thread icon, I can't say...I've been having difficulty figuring out what the hell was going on for months and I still can't find a way for it to show...anyway pencils are killer and the digital stuff is just as well. The pixelated paint doodles(I'm assuming done with simple MS paint) are very nice and refreshing to see....anyway keep it up, I have a feeling this thread will go far.
Thanks for visiting my sketchbook Davi sure is one of many of my inspirations. Not really the most important one so no, I'm definitely not idolizing him
I really like the studies. But I think that as much as you've captured the mood and lighting on them perfectly I think that you've actually lost a lot of the nuances you were talking about by making them so detailess But I'm no coloring expert.
Gspot - Thanks! Actually the pixelated ones were done in photoshop (boo! cheater! etc) it's hard to get such a pattern running in the background in ms paint. The way they were done was basically just fooling around with custom brushes, hitting it with the threshold filter and finding and enhancing shapes that came out.
thirdeye - I really used to idolize davi back some years but as it is with such matters, the influences come and go with time.
Yeah, one of my biggest issues is with detailing and calling stuff 'done' too soon. There's almost like this mental block going on that when I see the important parts represented (not even rendered!) then I get tired of the painting. Only very rarely I drag myself on to detail and render stuff out.
Well then. Haven't been around much lately, been very busy with the end of the semester. It's almost over but not quite yet so there's still little time to idle around and draw but I can show two comics I did for Uni. I didn't bother to translate the first one, it's just chitchat and nothing too important and you get the general gist of it either way. The given topic was Humanity by the way, the first one concerning growing up (fairytale characters dying and leaving and such) and mortality while the second one.. uh.. explores the topic of love.
haha, the pedophile man, oh man fuck ya. I totally didn't see that coming.
Shit dude, I love your black and white pieces, They have lots of emotional power, and your paintings are also very nice, I especially like the one with the dragon peering through the clouds. keep it up.
thank you all!
I discovered that one can keep an endless amount of inspiration going if you draw and look at other's stuff parallel. it's almost like tapping in on their knowledge, you can learn tons of new stuff from referencing like that (I found it especially useful for anatomy) plus it's fun as hell to take someones idea and put a new spin on it. it's almost like a one way dialogue.
