Working out a concept digitally before I go all watercolor on it's ass. (Which I will upload after spring break, and the labs are open at night)
Your traditional stuff shows tons of improvement, so good job on that part. However, your digital stuff seams to be at a stalemate.
What I've noticed about it is that you never seem to finish anything. You only work at it till the stage many other artists would call it a very rough sketch.
It's hard to make out shapes in your digital stuff because the lines are so damn rough.
So maybe try to reeeeally polish something for the next digital image?
Hope I'm not being too rough. As I've said before, you're definetely showing improvement.
iambanana You call that rough?
I completely agree on the digital stalemate, not sure how it can be overcome, but I'd love to do. Maybe it's just impatience.
Here's a doodle, right handed, just passing the time until my watercolor painting dries so I can put another layer
When I said rough, I meant the critique.
I don't think the geisha is any better than anything else I've done.
I'm going to try what you suggested, and just give more time to a single piece (I've also doubled my resolution, see if that helps.)
This is stage one, I call her chopsticks (those are a happy accident )
Ah, back from spring break.
The interior is my favorite, yet it's the only one I had to do, and the smallest.
We'll call the maiko piece experimental (not too happy about it, but we'll see how Mr. Wang feels)
And yes, another piece based on the Arrow concrete factory. The last?
Jeremy as "The Ace of Spades"
(He has one tucked into his hat, barely in view) Pen and Ink for commercial. Sometimes you just don't feel like sitting in class for 3 hours, drawing, but at the end of the day I'm glad I do.
Net was down last night, so here's steps 2 and 3.

Another awesome demo by Mr. Wang.
I would have never thought to start off with a blue color to prevent the skin tone from being too yellow.
I'm no Mr. Wang though, so I used too much blue, and something very wonky happened with the eyes.

Are these the final watercolors I do on the Arrow Concrete factory?
At least one is being sent to gallery, so they should be.
There's also a blast from the past. Kelly as a hippie, done before Spring break, I put it in my portfolio for review, and just got it back.
Sketchbook is also back.

Kelly as a nurse attending to a pregnant woman (don't know her name, sorry)
Watercolor (and detail) I did for fun, on a piece of mat board I had left after fucking up 2 of them (managed to salvage the third, the window is a little bigger than I planned )
Girls in pin up poses. Just one page today to ease the load.

3 quick poses, 35 minutes each, of the cutest model ever, one she did her little "I'm naked and confused" dance
I like how it came out with all the colors melting into each other. Makes me think of album covers from the 60's, 70's or 80's.
Also some male strippers and body builders with a Crayola marker I found.
