Hey, about the last piece:
The structure of the character is off, flipping your drawing horizontally during the whole process a lot, will help with this.
Also the red cloud looks kinda weird. It is transparent but very thick at the same time. If you got a thick smoke cloud you shouldn't be able to look tru it the way you can now. The less colors from the background are mixed into the cloud, the more thick it is, but at the same time the horns and part of the background are going right tru the cloud.
Color pallete is nice tho, and I like the rope around his eyes
It would help if you would take longer on one piece, this way you learn more about the allround aspects of making a drawing.
Thanks for the crit man!
The idea of the smoke were going to be that it'd should look transparent. Kinda like ink flows in water. Cause I was thinking of blood getting boiled up and then turn into steam, looking a bit smokey. Obviously, that didn't read as it should have done, but oh well.
The structure I know isn't the best. I'm sure it could be a lot better but I intentionally left it like that because I thought that scarecrows in general aren't really well put together so I kinda wanted that sloppy look.
I guess I need to work at the read more so that my ideas comes across.
I decided to comment to you right away cause I was kinda expecting crits like this one since it took a chance on the piece.
Again, thanks for the crit man and thanks for checking by! I appreciate all the crits I get.
Hey bro, the Scarecrow looks pretty awesome! =) There are no eyes though, so you made some interesting shapes like on the hands, horns and around the mouth.. =)
The enviro around him is pretty cool, I think the water though in the shadow closest to us could use one more value for the form though, it's difficult to make it out sometimes, like on the right imho.. =)
Kungfoowiz: Yeah, I see what you mean. Thanks for the crit!
Here's some stuff. I probably have more stuff laying around somewhere but I can't be bothered looking. I just really want to spend as much time drawing as possible. Posting almost feels like a chore now days D: I really need to get a job, that's why I'm so busy.. studying like a nut and drawing like a nutter.
a new piece
Got to start making full body paintings and less portraits. They are to be expected!
By the way, I did fix the smoke on that scarecrow piece. it's thicker now but I'm not posting an update on it. It's on my blog though if anyone really wants to see it again.
Great update loathsome your last digi piece is a big improvement, why not try and expand this one to a full body shot if your struggling with them? looks like you've already got the colours and values mostly sorted and the speculars and rain are looking good too. Keep it up man
ste, Yeah I'm going to make a lot more painted figures. I need a break from the gesture drawings anyway. I felt like I really needed the painting part of them too since I ran into a wall with that recently.
fudgeloaf, I'm not going to make it into a full figure but I'm working on a piece right now that's halfbody. I'm going to make more fullbody stuff real soon. I don't know why I haven't earlier. I guess it's the lack of knowledge I had before and I was being too comfortable.
Here's something I'm working on right now.. I'm in this weird phase you sometimes get in a painting where you don't get what the shit you're doing. But I'm starting to figure shit out now so I'm almost out of it..
I'm going to start doing some painted figures tomorrow. I'm also doing themed weeks now. I'm going to do trolls this week and next week something else. I'm going to do them as sketches for now. I might do monthly things later on where I do paintings. The trolls I'll do daily. But I don't know if I'll post all of them..
Najs... kråk-man? med fladdermusöron. Misstänker att hans mamma och pappa är släkt
Jag skulle rekomendera mer value studier, kanske inte det roligaste som finns med value är så jävla viktigt. IMO. så är det typ Lines-Value-------------------------------------------------Color. Om du fattar. Studier från IRL osv.
nice to see all the quick sketches.
Really like the bleeding skull/armour image. Very cool.
my sketches here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92997
www.sevans.co.nz , visit them or a puppy dies!
Oooo I like the red one. Really nice detail on the beak. Fudge is right about the torso, if you added highlights to the edges of the muscles (like the ones on that study photo) it might make his muscles pop out a bit more?
Keep it up!
Thanks for the comments, I'm too tired to comment back at the moment, I'll do so tomorrow. I'll also scan some shit tomorrow as well, I've been a bit lazy with that.
I've been a trainee over at a company for awhile, hence the inactivenessssss. I'll try to be more productive now.
Here's piece i finished up a few days ago.
Kungfoowiz: Thanks. Yeah I feel like they have gotten better, myself!
Alexon: Oh yes, oh yes it is.
Fudgeloaf: Ah man I hate that image now haha (not because of your comment). I dunno if I'll ever get back to it, we'll see.
Mincx x2: Thanks for the comments! I don't know what Limbo is though, I might have to google it later!
Here's some sketches. I've been procrastinating with the scanning again.. eh
I've also been gobbling up games yet again D:< I need to start prioritizing and reward myself with games in the end. BUT! I feel like the games I've been playing really opened up my eyes as for what type of art I ACTUALLY like. Which isn't all badass monsters and warriors and shit, it's more in the middle of zelda and diablo. I'm not so much for the huge odd hats that some people wear in zelda and stuff like that, but I love the feel of it and it isn't super serious all the time, but I love the griddyness of diablo. So I'm trying to slide myself into the middle of these right now. You'll going to see some odd changes.. maybe.
ANYWAY HERE'S THE SHIT!
(happy easter !)
