there i tried to draw without to front, i wanted to draw plane (shadows and lighter)
well i changed some little things on this older painting... i know, the face is still not good... but i think its better than before. And i think i will add shadow on the base or more background tune.

great sense of tone & the lines of this series is really interresting to watch!
current week points in my eyes are proportions and faces, doing lots (100000... kidding) of studys will fix that. make up a technique with few lines as possible to be able to too lets say 10-15 figure studys in a hour and you may get the experience in a fast run. doing that for some time will also give you a good foundation for getting in a relaxed & good mood for drawing and to be able to not loose the feeling. blablabla
greeetz from austria keep drawing - great sketchbook!
well this are some sketches from the study trip in Berlin last month. tried first time something with watercolor.

I dont know... how can i get a stronger expression in my drawings? I´m not very contented with them now...
great work... dont like the digital stuff, but thats just my personal taste...
the studies are getting really good!
keep it up
These are some Photos from Berlin. There we were in a old, little village, meaby in a russian boarding school or something like that. It was a locked premises and we had to climb over a wall. I´ve never seen something like this before. This day made just fun.
Hope you like the Photos.

Finally i got my competition-comic back. I posted a little preview a while ago. The theme for this year was climate. I got no price but i`m nominated. I think this is a good move for my attitude. I think the "message" is very easy to understand. I hope you like my first comic.
(ps: i`m sure there are a lot of mistakes in this text.)

I think i really should begin to draw seriously. I mean my sketches aren´t very concrete...
Yes!!! Ive got a Wacom now.
A simply nude for beginning. I dont think its bad for the first try. I dont know how to draw transition optimal... im still very halting.
How do you choose colours and the ratio between the colours?
Do you mix it after schematic or just feeling?
Please help me to understand...
( Ok... i know... I must mention it again, sorry for my english... ) :/
Just checking the last posts. I hope you thought of gettign texture shots from the abondoned russian bording school. Great for making brushes and spicing up yer photoshop in general.
I don´t really understand the question on colors.
You can create your own color schemes or use other ppl schemes.
A neat trick is to take a picture you like for its colors to photoshop.
Filter/Mosaik/ and then tweak the cell size untill there are only a few left and save. Voila: a color scheme.
Okay, that´s a little over the top but the concept should be clear now.
If that wasn´t your question, post it in german and I might be able to help.
keep it up
bbwolf - Well, I’m still trying to write in English. Because I have to keep it up.
Thanks for remember me that you can create brushes by your own. I totally forgot you could do this in PS.
Yes, it wasn’t really my question, but still thanks. Yeah sure, why not to get inspired by colour schemes from photos...
But I would like to explain my question. It is not the problem how to get colours from other pictures. Its more, how you get the colours schemes from your mind. Sure, getting colours from photos is one method. But I want to know what the best way is to mix and keep the colour in the right ratio…
Are you taking the colours from the colour field in PS without mixing? - This would be like more from sense.
Or do you mix the colour after schema? (See what I’m trying on the pictures)
Oh man! It’s so difficult to explain…
I mean there is the colour from an object, there comes colour from a light source and there is the shadow, which is also colour that swayed by other light source. Right? : /
So you have three colours (in this example) that interact.
And my question is: How do you mix them and bring them in the right ratio?
For me, I create balls in Cinema 4D and take the colour with the pipette. But I more want to know how to mix them like real colour (oil paint).
See the following pictures… I hope they explain better and show how I’m thinking about colour and light…
I think you´re on the right track but trying too hard. The technical approach is sound thou. Often it´s more a feel and, well, experience and reference.
Personally I try to think about the existing colors I have in the picture and the light and apply what I learned about how the colors affect each other (not so much really). Radiosity and bounce light and stuff. There are some great tutorials here. They´re just a search away, prolly in the EDUCATION & LEARNING section. There you can see how colors progress. I am sorry I can´t give a direct link but my old bookmarks recently went bad.
And don´t care too much of maybe getting it wrong. It´s just another exercise. Some cool concepts spring from "wrong" pictures.
I just pick the color of, say the floor, and then paint with an opacity controlling, preasure sensitve brush onto the area of the object that is influenced by the backbouncing light from the floor onto the object.
Einfallswinkel = Ausfallwinkel
Then it´s a simple question of "how much" depending onto the intensity of the light aaand it´s color. Having painted this on it´s own layer I can reduce, duplicate, multiply, blur, filter andwhatnot too.
Hope that helps.
There is another example that i made to understand how the colors interact.
Well i think I undertand more and more...
bbwolf - Yeah, you're right... I really should paint with more senses. I think I clench myself too much.
So i will do more of colour experiences and practices.
sparsons -- thanks!!! Your words are truly nice! ; )
So this is my newest painting im working on, its not finished yet. And after a lot of colour studies i thought it would be a great idea to draw -
I'm still not satisfied... but i'm think its a good start for the time being. I will put more interacting lighter in the pakground soon.
nice studies. Something actually clicked for me looking at the last ball where the lightsources overlapp on the ball. Of course it´s additive colormixture like on a screen. d´oh. How can something so simple evade me for all this time. Thanks.
Good going with the last study but I think you shouldn´t seperate background and characters while working. You should have both present, not neccesarily on the dsame layer but in the same file/canvas.
