The hand drawings look amazing, along with you still lifes!
You blow my mind!
Koh, Thank you
Jae1234, Thanks so much
Izene, haha Thanks! I wanted it to look like it was turning into sand, oh well gotta do some sand studies hehe
more practice of anatomy
some still lifes
I was trying to practice the use of texture brushes on this last one.
TvT Thank you for the encouraging words Lav
and here I was trying to approach color in a more traditional painting way, by achieving thecolor I want mixing from other hues and using black and white to manipulate the values. I like it because it makes more neutral colors :V
Very nice still art and sketches, beautiful way to make someone look like their turning into sand
I wandered in here due to the cute little plague doctor, and am very glad I did. Really loving the Ezio and other stuff, keep it up.
Yoyo Voodoo_Mama, thanks for stopping by, I almost fell ashamed that you even bothered to comment, when I didn't post anything in there for relatively a long time. I won't lie, I just lost the will to post there every day, mainly due to no group pic upload feature, got annoyed by that and cba to merge it all all the time. I still keep on practicing every day (except these last 2 weeks as I'm with my family and my drive has died down, even thou I kind of feel depressed by it.., plus uni. dissertation etc...the usual lame excuses, trying to write it on "cinematography in painting" and then do a piece for it...olololol). And my digital painting is almost nill, besides a few doodles.... do you guys ever get that feeling that you just never have enough time and before you know it you're going to bed with the feeling of not having done enough in the day..almost every day.. Sorry for all this blablabla!
To your progress...well... it's looking great as ever! Not much of a critiquer am I.. but if I would nitpick, an example would be your last apple study, shouldn't the edges on the shadow side be a bit softer? While browsing a few posts back you seemed to have done it on some thou, so perhaps it was a conscious decision. Also the cast shadow itself seems to be a bit off...or I'm the one a bit off. Anyway, keep it up man!
Erina, Thank you
OldOmen, Thanks so much
Lav, Thank you! haha it's just that it's very different to paint form life than to paint from imagination, to me it's easier to paint from life since the object and light it's already there I just have to translate it :V
Ancientdrake, oh thank you for the crit, I see what you're saying. I'll be more observant and careful with those shadows and edges. You shouldn't worry too much about not posting too frequently, what matters is that you keep practicing even if you don't post it, afterall the goal is to improve your skills not to have the biggest sketchbook thread lol I do get the feeling that sometimes I don't have enough time or haven't done enough, but I think that even if it's just a small painting a day it helps to improve. So keep going!
more anatomy practice
more color mixing experiments
and some of my drawrings from imagination
I like those drawings from your imagination, good stuff.
Happy New Year you guyzz
Sunfirmation, Thank you Glad you like them
Guik, Thanks so much
some anatomy studies
a sketchy sketch
more painting and color mixing excercises
This is not a pear, I don't know the name in English though :V. Maybe it would've looked better if I had used a darker value for the shadows..?
A painting of a dream I had
good job ! great sketchbooks!
Awesome painting practice!
Noro, Thanks so much for the crit O: I'll have to practice gestures to make my drawings less stiff! At least I think that's what could help, if you have any suggestion as to how I could fix this problem I would greatly appreciate it
folds are so hard to paint. I should do more fold stdies
OOOOH!!!Looking amazing!Loving your shading
Love the figure studies, love the still life paintings (especially the erasers), love everything in here, lol. And this is kinda random but I just wanted to say that the painting based on your dream in post #287 reminds me of that one wall boss in FF4 I just love the texture in that painting btw. And I find the elongated composition very elegant and interesting, though right now it's cropped a bit close to the edge of the wall and the girl (but that's kind of a nitpick really).
For the most recent painting, I think the most effective element right now is the texture, especially in the wooden floor. But a lot of the rest of it is coming off a bit static - the composition, the pose, and the dress, which feels more like it's made of cardboard than fabric to me (or maybe that's intentional? If it is supposed to be made of a stiff material, a touch of metallic sheen could help suggest that). The concept seems very intriguing though. And I really like the design of the room that she's in. It's really subtle, but very cool.
