Next bulk, actually not worth posting but hey, its for me
And its all:
ahaha, my first colors...
zomg porn !!!!11oneone
nice to see someone reviving his sketchbook, although i never saw it before
The face drawings you made in your last post before dropping this SB look kind of nice, especially the guy who looks like stalin
Try to do some portraits like those, and lets see how your pencil skills changed since then
They sure improved in 6 month full of differential equations =PTry to do some portraits like those, and lets see how your pencil skills changed since then
First steps into the colors realm. Dangerous and exciting =P
I dont get how to paint. Sounds retarded. And it is... But I figured that flat color wont do. So experimented with Painter blenders to choose the ones I like.
Got some ref and tried to colorpick (value and hue and saturation) by hand and than with the tool. It was a disaster. I must say, now I can see how hard it actually is to differentiate colors...
Start out easy:
It turned out that colors are complicated... Darker means more saturated. Who would have known? Turns out there is a hue shift depending on intensity. For example low intesity red goes torward yellow and then white...
showing improvement, paran0id!
try to empty your head of preconceived notions of "how things should look" when you're studying / drawing from reference. for instance, most of your eyes share that typical almond hieroglyph style....look closer at the reality of things
Thx squid! Gotta do those eye studies I never did...
I started to do some poses but those from posemaniacs are just to emotionless. You wont use them imho. So I went there (http://www.comicartcommunity.com/gallery/index.php) and picked those I like.
Also trying to do one value study a day. And faces.
blending and color temp
with colorpicking tool
without and other shit
i love bikes
Un-fucking-believable. Photobucket managed to find porn in my account...
Now I'll upload NSFW pics with the attachment manager. If only it would support bulk upload, I would upload all pics with it.
I picked the values an then did the one on the right side.
Red was supposed to be Saturation but I gave up, to hard.
Same with digital chalk.
Awesome linequality, hun? =P
wow buddy nice improvment ! lol nice refs ( especially for the lips and the big boobs girl :p ) Anyway, try to work more on your brushstroke, you have a good sense of edge, but it's like you're using too much strokes for nothing ! just begin with big strokes, but really big ones, and then decrease the brush size and me more accurate each time! Keep at it !
You're making progress, no doubt about it. And you're approaching painting in a very ... mathematical way breaking down the components into measurable parts. I can in some ways relate to that and it looks like it's helping you a lot.
My only comment is that when you do your highlights and shadows, go easy on the pure white and black. The toy car that has ended up in the potted plant would look so much better if the highlights had more yellow and a slight red tint in them.
thx! The edge thing I have heard before but I dont know yet what it is, so cant say if its good =P
thx! Life is math
Somebody, if there are some tricks to guess saturation, tell me!
Left the hue intact and tried to guess value, gave up and colorpicked.
If you make it really really small, its very similar and a success for me! =P
Tried to do it with Digital Airbrush only... gave up.
See! Its the same!
Probably my best work yet! xD
Some midnight shit.
Thx man. Like your demanz too =D
Eyeballing works finally more or less. Red are the real values. Rest is what I guessed. Image is to bright overall but the values work relative to each other.
Water, how do you do eet? ^^
Values +-10% right. Yay. Soon I will enter the real of saturation and hue. ^^
Tried some pencils. Turns out I'm not patient enough. Gave up.
Gave up even earlier.
4fuckr, nice page for nsfw lulz.
A bike and a penis.
I love the portraits man! Keep them coming and try to find the right volumetric feeling on the faces. You can do better - g

Stopped posting cause of preparations for exams and I didnt go to lectures at all, so it got a little bit chaotic =P. Math aced, physics failed. Oh well, cant have it all =P.
These are pretty old by now. And too big.
The numbers are saturation but I dont even remember what the bottom right is...
This one was my first non-colorpick image. Time is wrong. Its 2 hours.
Explanation on the right. Meanwhile I made a brush that is semi opaque and blends while drawing. Back then I used to do flat color and blend with blender tools.
Second pic after ref is first try. Second try I gave up early.
I colorpicked the first one. And tried to replicate it 2 times.
No valuepicking, got lucky =P
Second unfinished attempt at fanart of http://andrewandavid.blogspot.com/ . Dude has great lineweight and how to put it, "flow".
Its easier to create likeness if the image is the same size.
Done late at night, one is basically a trace for values to see how they run.
Tried to creat a face. Gave up.
Its hard to believe but to put those things in properly in perspective is fucking hard.
I dont do poses anymore =P.
Tried to render. No colorpicking again and it shows.
I dont think there is a anti-pussy policy on CA so i'ill post them.
To fllat. Tried to fix. Couldn't.

This new rubric is called midnight (00:00), nightmare (01:00) horrors or 2 o'clock shocks (02:00).
More fanart. Right arm is a failure.
First I was like...
And then I was...
Silhouette drawing is fun.
His face was very unpleasant. Gave up.
Falco, austrian musician. Dead.
Some pornstar probably =P. Alive. Gave up on that one.
First attempt at caricature.
Then I wanted to hit the values right without colorpicking... sad...
Another sad value failure. Oh it rhymes. Ref is lost.
Brush opacity in Painter.
I've seen some artist use the multiply layer. It basically increases saturation while decreasing value.
Sick curiosity =P
woah! von seite 1 zu seite 2 hast du ziemlich große fortschritte gemacht. deine porträts werden immer genauer und haben auch was von dem ausdruck des originals. (warum immer nationalsozialisten?). also ich meine du bist aufn guten weg, arbeitest ja auch fleißig daran. cool is auch das du immer das referenzfoto dazu zeigst - die unterschiede werden immer kleiner, teilweise kaum sichtbar. keine ahnung was man noch sagen soll, einfach weitermachen...
ach und ... nicht immer gleich aufgeben ^^
vandalize your mind:
Fellow german. Thanks man. Giving up is an issue, yeah. I never did a piece for longer than 2 hours. Must try.
Thanks dudes! Makes me feel all fuzzy inside from all the warm words.
Well, do ya?
Old hard brush. What a failure...
Tried without ref... Oh god...
Exaggerated. At the end I wanted to give him a nice "belly". It turned out to be to detailed.
Joker-mouth was intended but later I found it to be shit but was to lazy to fix. To bony too.
Last but not least =P
Imho, artists tend to avoid this particular bodypart. While even the oldest cultures made things phallic.
Thanks. Alternative is a fitting term =P
Thanks, good sir. Will do.
OMG, returning customers. ^^ Thanks man.
Oh boy, whit the sudden influx of comments =) My eyes are literally like this right now.
Ref is gone.
I try not to colorpick but fuck, its hard... Its funny too, when I was working on it, I said to myself, its awrite... Now I could puke when I see it...
Left and right are actually different "blendings".
Again a failure at colorpicking... and values... and likeness... and unfinished. FUCK!
I still do these from time to time =P
Nightmare Horrors and 2 o'clock shocks.
Lets get f**cking stoned. So we dont feel so bad about ourself. =)
Thank you. But where you see good stuff, I see epic failure. And I am ca 22.
"Are you talking to me?!"
Some enviros. Cant colorpick hues.
Sergio Oliva, Mr. Universe 1966
Sketches done after the Reilley Method for http://www.blog.freshdesigner.com/ where I won a sketch for being first to submit ^^. Now that I post this, I completely forgot to actually ask for the sketch...
Wanted to make the eyes even bigger than in ref. Done. Fucked up the values... again. Fail.
Values in fa(e)ces shit as always. Colored trying the "color layer" method. Horrible. Didnt care about likeness. I think, from now on, if the values dont match, I'll trace it over and colorpick just to learn where the mistakes are.
This delighful lady is the most influential woman in the kingdoms.
For she is the head concubine of the patriarch and his favorite one.
The public agrees that she has the prettiest nose around and is the
prime example of the success of Dr Blarghs selective breeding.
Forgot to post titties.
And belly from last update that got deleted.
3 posts to go to next page.
Unbelievable value and hue and likeness failure. as always =P
Now if I fail, I will redo it in b/w, trace it and do it over till I find the mistakes made
Mood pic, not happy with it
From Dusk Till Dawn:
Kate: Richie, would you do me a favor and eat my pussy for me... please?
Richie: Uhh... sure.
That was an epic failure, gave up after 1 hour

In lulz we trust.
Remember Mr. Universe from 1966 2 posts above? Here is Mr. Universe 2473!
Together with strange pose and his winning part...
Yeah! He gotta work on his legs though.
God, I start to hate portraits...
Shitty XCOM fanart, they dont make games like this anymore. Nowadays you get Shooter XY with autoheal, autoaim, quicktime events and shit...

Proposition, 2005, Australian Wild North?
Fucking awesome movie, it would take millions of Transhiters and Batshits to even come close to movies like these.
