Small update. Having such problems with her face, bleh...can`t wait to finish this and go back to my pencils...
i'm curious about what the concept/story is behind the poster, i like it so far
Just some suggestions: it's overall a lot of white, tho the background seems a bit more pale/light blue? maybe use it a bit more
And i assume you still have to put the logo on multiply or something, because it's a small detail i always overlook and notice when it's too late, but the logo has a white background that is in a bit of contrast with the background of your paint. Just a small thing but easy to forget
but nice job on it, your eyes look so good!!
Thanks, Lav! I`m actually using a lot of white b/c the space where the fashion show will be is also all white and futuristic, so hopefully it will blend in. Also, it might actually save some printing color...
I`m calling this one DONE. I could tweak and fix it for the following 5 months, but since my professor dosen`t seem to care (I mean, really - you have a degree in fine arts - give me something! -_-), why bother. I could have drawn a black circle on a white paper...would be less time consuming...*sigh*
Bye bye Photoshop. Heloooooooooooooooo, pencils!
Jesus... christ. I was checking out the start of your sketchbook and got totally freaked out. I just saw some work for the current queen ChoW and thought "This CAN'T be the same guy!" That says a lot dude, means you've improved like 10 fold since last year! Huge inspiration, please please please keep updating us with your progress. Never stop!!
What would you say you learned the fastest from?!
Visit my blog:
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
@Nicky - Arrr! N`stuff. Haha!
@Define - Thank you! I learned the most from participating in ChOWs, actually. It always pushes you further and further, b/c competition is tough! And also, staying at home and drawing. As in - having no social life. What - so - ever. Now if I`d spend my time being serious and doing my studies, instead of dicking around online...eh, a whole other story.
Doodles (my scanner is acting up, stupid, good for nothing...ffff -_-), and ChOW. One month - wohoo!
Bravo, bravo, bravo!
Will you also participate with your work on Modni Ormar? If yes, then I'll come to see what you're doing.
your female figures in that last post are splendiferous! yes, i only make up words when i get excited about your work. but seriously man, great linework. i want you to paint that top girly badly. she looks fresh!
Some more -
drawings from my life drawing class (and I could start ranting here how for an entire year we had to draw the same old lady in same clothes and same position over and over and over again, but I`m not going to. I made peace with the fact I have to take my art education in my own hands). Doodles and ChOW wips (which, as it would seem, I misinterpreted and now I`m kinda "on the fence" about it...Oh well, win some, loose some, I guess. I didn`t win any, though...
You are getting better and better!
There are some things related to anatomy that could be fixed, but overall you are improving. Keep it up!
2 more. Didn`t have a very productive day, unfortunately. Must...work...MOAR...X.x
Today I discovered Sculptris... I never did a sculpture in my life (unless those from 2nd grade count), and it`s just...well, I`m officially in love.

@ Lav -
One more. This is so addictive. Spite the fact its painting options are a bit tricky...well, with the weekend ahead - yeehaw!
Finally, I am now an owner of a (used but functioning) tablet. No more super small, used dibs and buttons that fall out...
@Lav - Ty, sweetcheeks. Now go clean up that sketchbook of yours for inspection. You do good, I buy you chocolate.
@alododadrk - Thanks, m8. Now, my drawing hours really depend on mood and a bunch of other stuff. There are days when I don`t draw at all, b/c I don`t feel like it (usually b/c I get in some kind of "funk" state - ugh, not fun :/), and then trhere are days when I spend...from 8 to 12(broke my personal record here!) hours without even feeling the time passing by. And then I go to sleep, wake up, turn on the computer and continue. I don`t even wash my face or...brush my teeth...I know, eeeeew. But once I finish and I get it out of my system...No drugs on this world can give you that kind of rush. Or so I`ve heard...;P
Chow finished, and 2 speedies of friends of mine as super heroes. All done in hopes they`ll "lend" me their books and class notes so that I can study for my exams. Hey, whatever it takes, right? And the fact that they`re both super "hawt" young girls is just a coincidence. Really!
ahahaha, I always look at your thread attachment on the sketchbook page and chuckle, but I really am not sure why I've never popped in here. DUDE, that last CHOW is looking proper, some real moody purple pallette choices could add a lot of depth to the image if you choose to color it. With the values you have, just some overlays could do it. Keep it up man, this is an inspiring SB.
Nice smooth brushwork it's great. And your images are pretty interesting too.
More...doodles. Enviro I tried to make (no refs=suck), another portrait of a friend of mine as a super hero (which seem to be all the rage at my FB account...well, good for occasional lulz), and a color study. Actually it started as a color study and then I just gave up. I followed my own instincts and ended up with the image on the right. Why is that? Why do I have such a hard time understanding color...? And that sue/saturation/lightness site is just so confusing, I don`t understand 80% of that text. It pisses me off. Gawd -_-
There`s that "funk" again...
Wow! I just went through this whole thread and have enjoyed seeing all the progress you've made. It's really inspiring. I absolutely LOVE the way you draw human figures, especially women--you've really got a handle on them and it all looks so effortless.
By the way, I'd love it if you finished drawing the faces on the painting you did of the two girls in the togas. It's such a beautiful piece.
So, I finally decided to make a life study, and I chose a pretty simple motive - my computer screen/work area. And then all hell broke loose...I quit b/c I just don`t get it. That tiny voice in my head convinced me of that. So, I decided to draw a male figure, and after fiddling with it for more that I would like to confess, that tiny voice got even louder and cockier. In the end I just got so angry, I just doodled the last one. I can`t even calm down to make some figure studies.
I read that when you`re feeling frustrated and angry, you`re bout to make a breakthrough of some sorts. I sure do hope so it turns out that way. Either that, or I`ll just give up. There`s no point in doing this to myself.
