Cool blend of tree branches, Peecock feather.. and your colors quite robust. Nice, nicoleta! Can't wait to see more of you
Nice! The last study looks quite solid! Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook and recommending books.
Great update nika i will suggest that you draw more from life digitally or traditionally and on anatomy Get some Andrew loomis books they are very helpful. keep upi the good work.
Hey there Nika (or Azha)? Thanks for dropping by.
I can see you are improving from your first stuff, just keep drawing more anatomy and portraits and remember proportions and stuff.
When you paint digitally try to keep the brush's opacity high. Don't make it too transparent especially when laying the main colors. only drop the opacity to sort of blend colors.
Here's a video tut from Feng Zhu which touches on that.
Thanks for showing some love on my SB, keep up the good work. I like the studies.
Thanks Philipopotamus for your kind words, you can call me Nika. Is kinda hard in digital but more flexible, i don't know if you fell the same but for me to fell the paper is like a holy grail in comparison with digital table which is kinda cold, but I need to get use to it
Ikrus's it's that amount of love you just neeed it
Feng Zhu is a professional, he is that kind of man which the world should appreciate and respect.
So my latest sketches.
Good to see you are doing plenty of studies. I'd try focusing on some basic construction before all of that rendering though =]. Keep working hard ^_^
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
hmmm,this is one case where i'll say that you should focus less on color and more on sculpting a form. Usually I'm the opposite, but i feel that your work needs effort put into form and shape. If you juggle colours, it can often throw your focus off the sense of depth & shape and focus it instead on colour play. Umm,less variety for a while and more grayscales and you'll become familiar enough to form a shape coherent enough that the colors do not obstruct the painting
If i don't reply to questions on others sketchbooks, send me a message. I'm very scatterbrained
Hey Nika I can see you are improving! Your rendering is already getting better, just remember not to use dark harsh lines on the edges of shapes you paint(such as the ones around the skulls teeth). Don't use them in case you want a more realistic look. Observe the value/tone of the object and that will show where an object begins and the other ends.
Keep it up! I love the skull by the way.
