hope to get some critiques and improve
another quick self study
older self portrait
Nice studies lionarmor! It would be easier to give you critiques if you put the photos you're referencing next to the studies. I also think you should resize the studies so we can see the whole image, 700-900 pixels on the longer side is usually good.
Do you have James Gurney's Color and Light? it's a great resource for learning about...well color and light XD
I don't have that book, thanks for the recommendation.
Heres the original images
hot/cold study, first one, don't really know what im supposed to learn from it.
but i did learn some about how form and color work
gray study, think i need a change of thinking, so im gonna leave this unfinished for now
I think you may want to try experimenting with different texture brushes, maybe mid way switch to a texture brush, after that go over it, soften and blend it in with a normal rounded brush...right now the skins look a tad pasticky. This method might help you out. Also, stronger tones will help to sell the form and planes of the face.
Keep it up!
Good start! lots of good depth of shadow in your paintings. I would say, be careful about using pictures like in#7 at the moment, as it doesn't really describe form, light or colour very well. Keep it up!
I am really bad at multiply blending modes, or color in general. Grayscale is alright though. I think putting texturing on multiply helps alot.
David drawings are older, but the other one is new.
Environment, just wanted something.
I should try it with a theme next
sword designs and stuff
Nice improvements with the brushes. You're good at making relation between objects in a piece.
I'd suggest working more on studying form and volume because although the pieces look good with eyeballed values, try to think about the volumes that create those shadows.
Keep up the good work, eager to see more.
Im kind of bad at painting environments, critiques on those would be especially helpful
car sketch that I want to try a photo texture thing, like what feng zhu does
A grayscale drawing, inspired by a drawing I saw here a while ago
