Some quick sketches trying to figure out where I want to go in the next frames of the sequential.
Figuring out the next couple of sequential pages
Figuring out the poses for the figures I've been struggling with in the ongoing piece again...
Still working out poses - mostly for that fighter...
Had a look through. It was interesting to watch you combine the studies with the painting. It may help you to use less lines to define the form, Well I know I'm not great but I find it can confuse me when i use too many.
I'm wondering a bit more about what your goals are for your work and what areas your interested in.
It can get confusing with so many lines... I think I end up with so many because I'm working things out and I don't like to erase. Maybe I'll try using multiple layers so I can work something out on one and lighten that layer, then do a clarified version on top nice and dark...
Goals... I don't actually know beyond wanting to improve. I'm interested in almost everything. I've worked more on figures than anything else so I guess that's probably what I'm most interested in.
Another quick landscape - Still working my way through some of the stuff in Jack Hamm's Drawing Scenery: Landscapes and Seascapes
Just watched the streaming composition class and realized that I hadn't done any thumbnails for the ongoing piece - I'm thinking of starting over, so I did some thumbnails.
Granted I'm not sure about starting over, but I think I'll end up with a better piece if I do...
Yeah, I still need to work on values... These all seem much improved by upping the contrast. Anyway, here's a quick workup of values from one of those thumbnails:
Another speed sketch - this was around 13 minutes. Looks like I still need to push my values more...
Trying to figure out both values and the caster's face for the ongoing piece. I think the values are much improved over my previous attempts...
Back to the ongoing piece... Changed a bunch of stuff: Darkened the cliffs in the background and blurred the background, moved all the figures up so I had room to add the pinned guy's hand reaching for something, changed the pose for the fighter, added a second magic blast. Next up: more lighting, more contrast, more cohesive values.
A portrait so I could figure laughter out a bit (from reference) and some exploration sketches for scenes in the sequential.
Incedently - Thanks for the compliment miycko. I'm not sure how to take those since there's so much I think needs to improve...
Today's is a couple posemaniacs poses and a couple sketches from photographs.
A couple posemaniacs poses, a couple from photographic reference, and value studies of some random stuff I had laying around.
You know i went through every page in this sketchbook because i loved the progression on that cliff edge battle.
The bottom right woman is well realized although i think your other pose of the woman falling off was more dynamic and interesting.
Keep up the good stuff!
Thanks! I think the relatively boring pose was me thinking too much about accurate anatomy and not enough about dynamic poses. I've sketched some quick alternative poses that are closer to the old falling pose. I'll probably use one of them...
More pose sketches, one from reference. It's really hard to find reference of someone falling backwards...
A 10 minute beach for a speed group on another forum
Another one, slightly more than 10 minutes, for the same speed group on another forum.
Still trying to figure out those poses... reference really helps. I know I've said this before, but this time I AM going to get a hold of a camera and make some reference.
Working on the poses and interaction between the mage and the fighter.
Refined the mage and moved the fighter a bit - I'm not satisfied with the fighter pose again.
Sweet update, really like this piece, really effective in black and white too, will be good to see where you take it from here
Three grappling poses from reference and some alternate ideas for the fighter pose.
Thanks! If anyone has any suggestions as to what I should be working on let me know. Especially if you also have suggestions for HOW to work on whatever it is.
A quick monkey-mouth from reference for a speed group on another forum. This was about 10 minutes.
Playing with the fighter pose more:
and a quick painting from a music video freeze-frame:
10 minutes line sketch then 10 minute painting for the speed group. I started the painting from scratch.
