Gimme Face #6 The kiss
If you haven't yet worked it out, this weekly thread involves everything to do with the FACE or HEAD. Getting the face or head features is one of the most important skills to learn as an artist, especially as a figuretive or character artist. Basicly you mess up, and its totaly noticable. Theres nothing worse than creating a great piece of art, except all the character faces look dead or lifeless.
So here's the plan, each week I'll give you a project that involves a face or head, this could be anything from basic line structure to full colour images, realistic human face to animated hamsters, stone bust to famous faces such as charlie chaplin or sweeny todd. Basicly everything goes, and it may not be just one image, some projects may include multiple faces, similer to the spartan thread.
Project #6 The kiss
1. Create 2 characters kissing
2. humanoid or animal, or even both. your choice
3. Head and face only, as usual.
Deadline - 9th july
hmm, things are looking slow this week, must be the subject
I love kisses I'll do one
I try to do one too.
though... I think ANYONE is able to do a kissing couple if she/he spend several hours on it. except me.
it drives me crazy. and face is my favourite subject and I love this very topic.
maybe drawing a proper kissing is really tough. well, the problem is such huge because that I wish to do it in digital (with lines, I have no chance without them). the lines go everywhere except where I plan to put them. I'm so miserable, I wonder I should give up the whole drawing thing because I lack any talent...
ofcoz I won't I'm really stubborn.
sorry for the whining I hope I'll come with some pic soon.
created in Flash, because of line smoothing
I put some colors on it, too, without much thinking. I don't know much about colors and shadows yet, but I tried to do something.
next time I will probably use my dear pencils. they're more obedient.
am I too late? either way profile destroys me.
the hardest part about making a kiss is defining the lip area, the skin just seems to melt together in a weird way there
great images guys, some nice stuff here, glad i left this one open a little longer. naomi, your right about the lip, it almost becomes part of the other character its actually kissing, so instead your image being 2 figure studies, it instead becomes one almost abstract type figure.
ill wait a ouple more hours on this then ill post the new brief
oh yeah, gimme gimme gimme a new topic I miss it badly.
I'll be away for 4 days, but before that, I wish to make the new one I'm so curious what the topic will be...
oh man..this sucks..I just found this whole section below all of the "CHOWS and COWS and EOWs" that I never found your gimme face topics...I'll participate fo'sho on the next one..
thats a nice summary grenogs, ill have to contemplate that next time I am kissing.... hmmm abstract figure creation
