armor/metal study is so badass. keep it up
Black Spot: Thanks.
Raffix: Thanks There's a self portrait in this post, just for you ;D
Sorry for not updating for a long time ^^' Kinda fell out of the habit when school started
Feel a bit like the school is a bit too basic for me. I'm pretty far ahead of most of the other students... Which kinda makes me wonder why I wasn't accepted last year ^^' Oh well. It beats sitting at home without a job, and I guess I'm learning stuff still...
Here are a few things I've done recently
awesome new stuff. and painting+bike = extra awesome.
Yes, it is. Though I assume you mean oil painting
Found this meme thing on DA and thought it looked fun. The idea is to make another one with male characters...
And a teddy bear/vodka still life in oils... Bah... Crappy scanner colors

your paintings are cool. a little tipp: use textures or special brushes to simultate skies, rocks, clouds and so on ;-) you'll find good textures on: http://www.gctextures.com
its not just the bodyparts. it's in the walls and roboparts too I see. you need to brush up on perspective a bit. it's a bit boring I know.. but ye it'd certainly help you witn realism.
Well, yes. I have a tendency to be a bit lazy with perspective, thinking 'it'll look good anyway' but I guess I shold be more careful with that.
Here's a big figure drawing, done in around 2,5 hours. And a painting that took 2 schooldays... As well as a couple of still lifes.
looking good buddy.
the oil painting in post 76 and that recent figure painting are both awesome! keep working hard
with that sketch for your painting, think aboutt he composition. the focal point and areas of interest to be more percise. right now al the interesting stuff is in the center, so why have all that space around the two characters? not to say you should crop it, but think about how to make the area surrounding the characters support the scene. also, when doing a sketch, even if its a vague, try to get your values figured out. as in the darkest darks vs lights. right now its unclear.
the scientists pose could be more dynamic, especially if what hes making is some epic potion. get in the position of the scientist and see how you would handle powerful chemicals when pouring.
one last thought: to make the scene more interesting, what if you put some objects int he foreground in the bottom right corner of the composition, like sillouettes of more beaker jar things, like we are looking through/over a shelf into the scene. this could frame the characters too especially if the back area is dark.
dont know if any of this was helpful... but good luck
im excited to see it done! keep it up.
I really like the pencil work you're doing with the hatching. Your imaginative stuff is coming along, and it will get better as you continue your studies. The oil figure study is good except for the feet. Feet are weird things and should be chopped off.
hehe. that thick lady in #78 is prety awesome.
the pleriminary sketches, you're watching your lines now. but they're parallel, not coming towards eachother at a focal point. it looks a bit weird to me espec. since it's an inside shot, so the 'carema' would need to be in pretty close to shoot this -> strong perspective angles.
Badass: Thanks for the crit. Very helpful.
Black Spot: Thanks. Feet really are weird. I've realized they're a bit easier to draw when you realize just how weird they look
Ashess: Thanks. Yes, I fixed the perspective when I went onto painting it. Hopefully it looks ok now.
So here's the semi-finished painting. (Sorry 'bout the bad photo.) I'm concidering putting some stuff in the foreground and maybe darkening the background more.
Also a sketch for a christmas painting and the finished version.
Edit: Heh, realized that's not how you hold a pipe...

Big improvement on the painting; the woman's expression is especially good. Santa can hold his pipe whatever way he wants - who's going to argue?
yay! perspective on that last lab shot is MUCH better. now just watch that your characters align with that space right. fi the secretary's elbows should lin up somewhere.. even if you cannot see 1 of them. also the doc has got his fingersnails on the wrong side on 1 hand.
Black Spot - Thanks. Nah. He can hold it however he wants. Just something I hadn't thought about
Ashess - Thanks. Perhaps I should check the perspective on her more precisely... And those are not finger nails, they're the back of his hand. But I can see how it looks that way.
Dog portrait commission. I had a pretty blurry photo to work from so hopefully I did allright...
