lionheartGFX - I have no particular advice on likeness; honestly, I struggle with it like crazy. (See earlier in this thread as I make a half-dozen increasingly desperate attempts to paint a recognizable Nathan Fillion.) As for schedules - yeah, I need to get some more structure to my study. Especially because I'm freelance but low on work right now, making structuring my time a little iffy. I do spend more time on art than what I post here, though. I've taken to drawing for an hour or so when I first wake up, just sketching whatever, studies from books, anything. Rule number one with that stuff is that I don't post it here, though, because I'd noticed that posting to this thread was making me a little self-conscious about just randomly drawing crap. Still, there's a whole lot of stuff I don't work on, due to momentum and force of habit. Structure is good! My new years resolution for this year was to post something in this thread every day, maybe next year's will involve a schedule of some sort. =)
Zauselbart - Thanks!
MeteorCat - Thanks! Bobby Chiu is such an inspirational dude, he knows his stuff.
PollyBoffin - It's fine, I got what you meant. =) And either way, no need to put your work down, your stuff is really nice. It's a fair point on talent, I suppose, but as you say, it always comes down to work in the end. I think everybody wishes there were shortcuts. =) Skyfall is mostly named after a location in the movie, among other things. On the cap - it's possible it's a bit flat! It was a very diffuse lighting situation, though, here's the ref.
Ana Caspão - Thank you! I love gestures too, I really appreciate it. =D
Yet another Skyfall trailer cap! I need to do more interior studies, geez. The lighting in this one was so neat, though, and I'm completely geeking out over the composition. Every shot in this movie is gorgeous.
I spent way longer than normal on this one. Don't know how many more of these I'll do in a row; I know I need to do things other than study screencaps, especially work from life. I'm just... in this mode right now?
