So heres my first posted pic, yay.
Its just a sketch, but i mean this is a sketchbook so that should be no problem hehe. I've been working mainly on her eyes, mouth and hair, the rest i'm gonna update soon i hope. And, im still quite new with photoshop so crits and ideas are very welcome. Anyways, here it is:
The hair besides her face looks better than the bangs, to me. I guess their smoothness is unfit for their jagged bottom. Or maybe I'm rambling The mouth is a little off to one side.
Hard to say anything else at this stage, but I think it's looking good. Welcome to the site :3
stud.art.cg | my art tumblr + schoolwork
its really blurry and the face is a littel bit distorted, even when not doing photorealistic renders try to keap the features and proportions corect, hers a littel diagram of the face features i posted in another therad, just scroll down.
I think her left shoulder (on the right) needs to be more solid. It will allow the hair to fall back and look more natural. The chin could use some shading to blend it in, although it does look more powerful at the moment.
Also, does her skin have to be pure white? If it does, darken the blackground to give contrast and strengthen the image.
Wow! I think i can agreed with all of you so far, thanks so much for commenting! I mean, its really helpful!!
Okay then, here's a requested update (hehe):
wow, that turnet out really great, really like the reflective light on her head bow, im impressed!
u should color the dress and her skin to though.
Lotet: Waa, thank you, that made my day^^ I did have some problems in finding a dresscolor that both matched her wierd hair and helped keep the picture calm, still not sure if it's good but at least its ok, ill post later
i found one of my first ps-paintings, this frog, and i remade it a little and replaced the background. Its pose is not very creative i think so i made the bg make up for that so you wouldnt notice (...ehum) I know the whole pic is quite a blurry mess and its leg is totally wrong but ill fix a lot of that later.
i think its pretty decent, the BG is nicely rendered, the frog IS a littel wierd, sp ur right about that =P
though whats bothering me most is the horison line, which dosnt match the perspective and the frog in the 4ground.
in short, the horison line is to much up to the top of the pic, but overall its pretty-not-that-actuly-bad (yes, thats a word...now)
keep it up.
so heres the final (i hope) version of the girl. anything more and i just might end up transforming her into a vogon or something.
And also heres a centaur i painted over last night and tonight. i think you could call it a speedie, i sure took my time though. no plans on finishing this one! each time i say i will i just end up getting embarassingly bored of it so better not say things like that.
the frog's gonna be lost for some time, (same reason as i mentioned) but crits makes sense. thanks! =P
nice update, the girl looks good in color!
and the centaurus is pretty not that bad at all, though thers some freaky anthomy going on below hes stomach, totaly not okay lol
anywy, good work, keep it up^^
sup those parts were really as bad as i thought then hehe. below-his-stomach was my major problem since there could naturally not be any centaurus anatomy and im not familiar enough with anatomy stuff to see how it should look if there was. but i'll ignore the centaurus until i get better at the anatomy. glad you think the rest was at least not-that-bad (liking that word)^^
just a small update today. i think the most overall common crit is the one about anatomy and proportions and me to should definitely spend some time on that. this ones practically just a copy of a proportions pic i found on google (thats great: "dont blame me!" lol), i thought i should start with such copies and studies until basic anatomy is stuck in my head. then i might start paint more out of imagination. big words, ill do my best to try and stick to them, hehe.
damn, i talk too much, should definitly paint more instead x)
haha, thats good ur starting to work on anathomy, try getting more mucles onto the bodey too, overexagurate and draw every singel muscle on him, its easier to understand how things work if u understand the mucless, and makes all the other stuff easier too.
personaly (or well, actuly totaly ripping of Cole Eastbursn teqnice)i think its best to start of with the skeleton, so u get how everything is build on top of that.
remembered i actually have a scanner that works... so heres some stuff from my irl sb. it feels a little random but this is whats going on so i'll just post it xD
Lotet: thanks and allright, ill try and do so
references: anatomy book (the only source for the back-study), random free magazine, classmates, own hand. whatever. more coming!
A sketchbook sketch overpainted in ps. I was actually kinda happy with it till i remembered it was resized before i started. now its too small, heh.
Also, a (bigger) dragon sketch, i think its quite old, but i have made some changes afterwards.
just a skeleton study/sketch i did. always wondered wether there's any purpose in drawing on a grey background. i figured so and it kinda was to=P plenty of room for another sketch at his side i see, but noooh, another day x)
they look cute, great job, keep it up
Lotet and RandAlThor, Thanks guys!! Really nice of you to stop by ^^
Waaa, just gotta tell you tonight i was at the freaking best damn concert ive ever been too!! So now i cant sleep (not talk either btw) i could just as well do some posting
This is a portrait ive been working on, s NOT me, its my friend. painted it from a photo, im a little ashamed though, i did steal some of the colours from the oroginal photo.. Still the most is in fact not stolen Here goes:
Those studies are really nice. Of course, you should avoid the eye dropper in Photoshop to sample from a photo. Choosing colors by eye is hard, but investing the time now will pay massive dividends later. Keep up the work and best of luck!
Sorry for the lack of updates, donno what's happened lately =S here's finally a small update, and i sooo know this one is kinda not-good, but i feel like working more on it to make it at least a little better. So, comments are very welcomed, feel free to be honest and brutal =P
cool sketchbook Evergrey, you have some nice anatomy studies keep it up.
For your latest image you could give it more depth by having the ocean fade off into the distance. Things closest to the camera get the most intense hues/ contrast while the things further from the camera are duller and don't have as much contrast.
keep up the good work!
small small update. Been working on this for quite some time now, still doesnt make any difference so, ermn, brutal crits requested XD
wuhu, updaties, keep em coming girl^^
ur doing fine, watch the mounth on the portrait though, its really red n small.
Howie: Oh, youre right. Thanks, ill keep that in mind.
Lotet: thank you, and i will look the mouth over. really got to make a good one out of this ^^
OKay, bigger update. got a bit disappointed though, thought i had done even more pics but obviously this was all that was worth showing X) last two are tries at a tarot card design, 1st pic's my doggie ^^ a horsie with too short neck and some pictures drawn from a book. Digital updates might also come soon i think.
nice sketches, keep em coming
i like the horse, its cute^^
Thanks a lot lotet for being around ^^
Considering giving that old frog a try again, maybe redo the whole thing. so, here's a frog study-doodle-thingy i did to get the right frog-feeling for later =P
keep it up, keep on doing those studies, especially anatomy (very very important) and just always keep drawing.
To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.
