The Spaniard's Sketchbook... No holds barred
feels like AAAAaaages since i was on here - not a huge amount to show for my absense, but here's what i've got
a quick head study, going for a more stylised approach, particularly inspired by daniel chavez - only about 30 minutes worth though
and today, a speedpaint!
so thats it - after a couple more months of studies and speedpaints i'm hoping to be ready to tackle some more finished pieces. Possibly.
inspiring sketchbook you have going here
ill be staying tuned
have a good one
sketchbook updated October 6th
another head study tonight. With this one i wanted to do a bit of exploration into colour, so having looked at a picture that had a palette i liked (in this case one of carlos huantes') i tried to recreate a similar feel in my own. Note: This doesn't mean colour picking!
Again, as with the others the actual "finish" of the drawing wasn't too important, so i haven't gone in and smoothed everything off.
All in all, a useful exercise, and something i'm going to try and do more of!
*and in case you're wondering, it's based on a pic of Peter "Robocop" Weller i had lying around*
So "Headruary" has come to an end, it's definitely helped, but it's also confirmed how far i still need to go. I haven't even begun tackling the more tricky areas such as expressions, mood, age etc. I'll probably keep going on this for a bit longer and them move onto something else - hands and gesture drawing look like likely candidates right now
With all that and some busy technical demands at work, not much to show for myself since last time. But here it is anyway
A quick lunchtime speedpaint of this excellent model mini-skull
And then onto the speedpaints
And in completely unrelated news, I also saw a few things on the interpipes...if this thing has a decent paint app and pressure sensitivity then i know what i want for christmas
Also i saw this, which frustratingly isn't available to buy as a standalone mannequin. If only it was - it looks so useful. And limber!
A lot of things going on this month, but sadly not as much of it art related as it should be.
Still there was a little activity in that area, so here's what happened
My mission to learn/relearn some of the basics continues in earnest, the picture below is what i've managed to do since starting
But thats not it! Work picked up copies of a new series of gnomon dvds which look like they could be pretty useful, so looking forward to seeing how they go.
I managed to finish off another sketchbook, first one of the year, and so for no other reason than to show i've been doing SOMETHING here's some of the er, highlights from the last few pages
I even took one of the sketches above and developed it a little further - Mermaid!
And over in the Storytellers forum i had a crack at a book cover for "John Carter of Mars". Still only work in progress (and likely to remain so)
Thats enough of that for now.
MUST. DO. ART.
lots and lots of awesomeness
been a long time since i updated on here, i have been busy though (occassionally) but i do find it easier to update just my blog (www.http://pixelherding.blogspot.com/)
but i should be on here more often so heres some things from the last few months!

Dang man, keep pushing those black and white pieces, do you lay color over the top of them? If you flatten out the image and raise the key up a bit, when you glaze in your colors with multiply and overlay layers your shadows will stay warm, the values are just so good in the BW comps. Cheers.

still struggle with colour, so stick to black and white if i just want to concentrate on form/rendering/technique etc
sometimes do colourise them though (the mr. bongo piece started off monochrome) but can be tricky not "killing" them with lifeless colourisation.
been a few more speedpaints since the last post - heres some of the least worst efforts (i wont even mention what i did to poor Chewbacca in one of them).
They'll have to do until i decide on something a little more substantial to tackle. Have a few ideas for some "projects", but as ever deciding on just one isn't as easy as i'd like.
So some moody thumbnails for a pic that hasnt quite resolved itself yet. No idea what its about, thats probably the problem
and some speedpaints
