Hey all new to ca so just dropping by to say hey, check my sketchbook out say hi, give crits or whatever looking forward to improving my severely lacking art skills
thanks kevin, thats one of my goals is to be able to do anatomy from memory and have it look halfway decent at least. i like your monster concepts in your sketchbook very organic i think awesome work man
hey guys hopin on that character forge over on cghub-female space pirate- tryin to apply what ive been learning so far heres what i got still shitty but hey gotta get those ones out early anyways
Well, damn... All I have to say is that you are on the right track! Those two color studies of the woman and man are fantastic. The flesh tones are amazing! Keep doing studies mixed with memory and applying it to your work
ColorExcursion: thanks im definitely gona keep doing more studies seeing as anatomy and how it applies to my personal work is one of my many major weak points im focusing on that for a while till im somewhat comfortable with doing it from imagination..tough beast to tackle but ill get there
On a side note, does anyone know how i can get my thumbnail pic to show in the forum threads like by my sketchbook name? I figured it just takes a while since i just registered with ca but its been about a week and still no avatar image for my sketchbook thread hmmm...
anyways heres some studies from this morning and some bridgeman studies i did tonight
Psychobuddy:Thanks man, still need a ton of improvement tho, ill get there hopefully
more studiiiiiies yay! couple from memory couple from ref, some gourney and some character forge oh goood i hate this part of my render process the part where everything starts going waaay downhill and colors start getting muddy ah well such is the journey of the artists i guess, need to do more value studies and light studies
uugh more pretty lame stuff, i realized the other day to appreciate my terrible skill kuz its definitely a driving force for motivation to get better still trying to understand the anatomy more if anyone has any suggestions or crits go ahead and tear me apart im all ears, anyways heres a couple of my studies and a couple study applications fails
working on the torso trying to get it right plus some more anatomy and a couple application sketches from memory really want to get to a point where i dont have to rely on ref the anime piece i started is for my girlfriend for our 1 year anniversary yay she wanted me to do one kuz she digs the style study study study i decided to scrap the first attempt at the character for the cghub challenge and start over i didnt like the direction it was headed ah well
sorry i havent been on this week guys i had some problems with my internet but anyways heres my character from cghub challenge too bad i didnt get around to finishing it but ill be finishing it up later more stuff later
whoa! that last one is comming together pretty nicely!
Please, excuse me for the possible errors in my English.
so ive been away for the last month studying and trying to get better i recently quit my job to focus all my time and energy to doing art and i really want to make the transition to freelance my stuff is still terrible but i figured if i have the means to quit at this point in my life and do art all day as much as possible why the hell not? lol anyways heres some stuff ive been working on while i was away i really want to pull the whole typical working for magic or warhammer or something like that but at this point my skills are no where near that i want to soon be able to do mabe indie tabltop card games idk i think itd be fun, wishful thinking i guess. if anyone has any suggestion, or comments about what i should include in my portfolio for this kind of work please dont hesitate to share!
