thanks for the crits guys,
shitty sketch update
bhanu you are making damn stunning progress.
These last two look great, forms are flowing better and it seems like you've made a giant leap.
Keep going man, this book is getting damn good.
hey bren man ,
thanks for the support.so another update today, a few weeks old sketchy portraits of my mum. hope you like.
and no I dont have two mothers , its just that likeness isnt my forte.
Bhanu, missed a few updates while I was moving, but showing some reallly nice progress here! The crow and the skull headed femme stood out alot, showing some great rendering improvements by all means. Keep going with that level of quality in mind. Youre doing great, keep yourself on that path.
Halos sirio man-man I should really step it up right. rendering and all , need to catch with all you guys.
thanks for coming man. and btw just check you inbox theres something waititng for you there.
Okay so i tried to break my but the fucked thing wont even budge , its stil working. and its still working that abd. just look at the scans.
FIrst is a portrait of a nobel peace prize winning ex president of poland (forgot his name)hehe
Second is wip in acrylics. I kind alike it how fast it dries and all it helps in fast brush strokes . me like.
i thin kthis one is really strong http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1173608448
nice and loose lines drawn... i like it !
thanks for the visit ROdman
so another update for the wip . i gotta finish this one till tomorrow , have to give it to a friend for his birthday . have hit a wall with the skin tone .Lets see.
Ah Bhanu, nice to see you experimenting, though you dont seem to have given yourself enough time to do this piece. Think the robot was looking the strongest, everything else looked a bit rushed.. :I But hey, thought that counts no? Feel the same about acrylics, theyre pretty easy to use. Keep it up nonetheless.
No way man, these last ones are by far you best eva!
I really dig al of them, you're pushing in the right direction and you're pushing hard my friend.
Keep it up, your progress over the last few updates has been spectacular.
keep going dude!
thanks for your super kind words in my book
i really love the wine bottle in the last one, it s just looks so crisp and hard like glass, its brilliant. really well done.
i attached a little gif with your michaelangelo study (hope you dont mind i played with it )
when an area is shaded flat i appears flat, to solve this, bounce light can be considered. because light never really comes from one direction, it bounces off everything around us (dude im sure you know this so forgive me if i sound patronising). easiest and cheapest way to do so is to go from light>dark>light again as you shade around a form...
i hope this gif helps..sorry if im confusing you
oh and sorry its so small!!
Thanks for the comments brothers
Sirio Brozzi-hirio sirio, dont worry ma man .I am gonna complete it I was having some troubles with skin tones . but Its getting sorted out . So soon you will see the the finished painting. WIsh me luck, I might need it. hehe.
Brenman-Man its so cool when ones friends and family appreciate his work. The other day my cousin , my parents and my brother had a fight about who gets to hand my painting on their walls. I had fun looking at them fighting. Thats somethig to cherish. Thats whats the hard work for. Infact thats somethign that doesnt make it look like hard work hehe. Evrythings cool. And dont forget to update the blog.........or else.....................
DOn-key-Hey don, I am sorry Its kinda wierd calling someone so good ,donkey .Thanks for the draw over gif. I realised that after I had completed the pic. About reflective light and all.but you see the point also was to use less rubber. And thats where I fucked it up. but you taught me some great lessons here.ALways appreciate well put crits.take care and please do comeback.
Daniel- Glad you like bots. me like meself some bots too. yehe.And yeah the dons crit helped.will and confident.....aye aye sir.
Beautiful rendering on some of your pencil pieces. Seems like you could exaggerate some of the curves in your figures to make them flow more. Right now some of them seem kind of stiff to me.
Thanks for dropping by Sepulverture
Yeah the lines are very mcuh stiff. Sometimes I am at my wits end abotu how to deal with them.still thanks for leavign a comment.
a badly rendered sketch . shitty shitty sketching .man I suck . pfffffffff
and a a badly doen portrait. I know it looks shoddy because of so many blunders. but you know what I am a little wiser after doing this. I now have more confidence in my skills.
Looking good bhanu!
something I noticed you do often is leave white spaces between certain forms. Whenever possible try painting some undertones first, and fill the gaps between the forms as early on as possible. It helps to just sit down and think for a while what you want to paint first and which forms will be obscuring others. Like the colour palette your using, that's my type of colours!
thanks for the support bruthar, ciao!
nice work, loose and expressive!
Good to see you participating in the CHOW mate, entry looks really good, line work is damn good man. Can't wait to see the finished piece! One crit I have now is that the environment is too busy - you need to place focus on the creature again.
Other than that, good work so far, I realise it's a WIP so I'm not going to get all nit picky.
Keep us updated bro!
Nice progress dude!
Would like to see more line drawing like the bear, maybe try and vary the line a but more according to the light.
cheers, keep it up
Thanks for the comments guys,
Breanman-thanks for the warning about the environment. It got really scuky. I kept it simple this time.Now , please rip it apart .I mean b your crits.
Shinryu- Hey man, I do a lost of line drawing like the bear but I think I am just to lazy to post them.
SO heres the final CHOW.Sucky wookie baby.
Nice work on that bear.
But the line in the white highlight in the middle of the pic makes the armor too flat. I'm being picky i know, but if you could vary the highlight a bit, the overall shape would be much better.
Also don't forget reflected light !
You've got a great character for the CHOW. Line work is really good. The final render works, but a suggestion: I think one thing that would help in the immedieate read is the value compostition. The values as it stands are kinda competeing for the eye. So, it's not easy for the eye to see one shape from another. Check it out by squinting. Can you distinguish forms clearly? That's a very important preliminary for any piece.
Was reading a comment from Scott Robertson in Concept Design 2 and he wrote: "Everyone's brains work the same in that forms are percieved by value changes."
With this fact, I am also learning to use value to contribute to the impression of a piece. It is even more important when creating a mood.
Keep at it 'cause you are showing us some great progress.
Great work here, you're improving a LOT, especially with your knowledge of colour theory.
I have some tips in regards to working with acrylics.
How large are you working? I'm asking because it's really a bitch to work with something detailed and small with acrylics. Rendering fur in an 11x14 drawing in acrylics? Hahahahahaha. hell no.
What I do with my acrylics, is I usually go over some parts with a pencil once they're done to add further definition.
Keep it up man!
Thanks for the comments guys,
DAneil-thanks for the crit bro. yeah the armor need some more highligh to make it tend toward rounded form.And also the point of reflectind light is valid. But I think I got a bir bored by the peice. I dont think conept art if for me. And most drawing which dont ahve a story to tell g et boring quite fast. And hey I worked on this for hours. I will thought try to take care about values more from now on but I want to keep the peice undisturbed.Take care bro.
Its great to see you posting again Where were you ? Oh lemme guess, in the studio burning the midnight oil. Thanks for the crit. You know can you help with this , the thing is when I am working at a peice I soemtimes get so involved in the details that I forget the bigger shapes and the peice even though is not technically a peice of shit , it still looks umcomfortable to look at. Hmm I just squinted at my peice and now I ant distinguish the for hmmmmmmmmm. what does that say about the painting? I am still a noob with values . values.................
ANd yeah please update soon. ANd take care
Bunny-Hey bunny, cool to see you in my pages. YOu think I am improving ....I think I am not well thats somethign else I guess.I work really small A4 printer paper size. I wanna do some big paintings though. SOme thing liek aorund a2 printer paper. ANd yeah Rendering fur samll was hell It didnt cme out all furry even after I put so much into it. And working with lead on acrylics? Hmm now that sounds interesting. Thankd for the advice, will be much useful.Take care
feeling blank right now. I want to really o some creative shit but its just blank......................
did ths last night , was really trying the portray soem raw energy , but shit I get caught up in details and I am neither here nor there.The proportions are intentionally exagerrated pssssssfffffffffffffffffffffffffff
not much more to say.
