Today I worked on mixing up animals, so here is a Ginger haired, golden shelled, bird turtle...
Also I was bored and did a stylized Damian Wayne, not technically drawing since I just copied it from eye, but i wanted to upload it sine i worked out all the shading myself and I like it, copyrights to DC and so on haha
Spent about 6 hours over the past two days drawing a Hydralisk from Starcraft 2! I really enjoyed it and i'm pleased with the final outcome, feel like I'm cheating with this whole black line shading though
Thanks! I really liked post #61 too at the time but looking back I could have done a lot more haha, anyway I'll try some sphere studies tonight before I go back to apples thanks for the links! don't be a stranger
Cleaned up some of the areas, added a little detail to the head, smoothed out the stomach, lightened some places and trying to avoid shading with black, as advised by someone on another website, struggling to add much detail to areas past here though, could use some tips/crits?
I'll answer in the morning, done my 6 hours for today and it's time for bed!
Haven't been posting on here for a while, guess keeping up a sketchbook was too much effort haha, I've been keeping to my artwork either way, yesterday I decided to buy some paints and brushes and here is my first attempt at acrylic painting!
Havent updated in a while, haven't been photographing everything I do recently but here's a few things, A digital skull study which I admit I could have done a lot better.. 2 sketches of some fossils sitting around my room, and an acrylic painting of a Ram's skull I've been doing
Great studies you have going here! For that hand I'd recommend a little more red in the finger tips. Blood shows through on places like fingertips so they're just slightly more red usually. Also, maybe a little more contrast, darker darks and a couple highlighted spots to show the form. Great colors though. You definitely have a good eye for color being a traditional painter.
Nice progress, I can see you like painting so this crit is focused on that area: it might be good to include a background in more of your work (keeping it simple and not busy) and then try to integrate it into the main object you're painting. Watch for how the tone shapes integrate in whatever you're painting and their edges. Other than that just keep working on proportion, colour etc.
You seem to be making good progress here. In your paintings, you can get more pleasing results by refining your edges more. A strong solid edge instead of a blurred edge with uncertain brushstrokes will give you a more finished look.
A digital helmet study from reference, a Piece for a calendar that goes towards charity, A flyer that I designed while on a 2 week work placement at a local nightclub under the art director, and finally some traditional work, a goat study Any crits are VERY appreciated, thanks!
