decided im gonna give a go at the blizz contest... here is my first practice a grunt head.... i am going to be doing quick paintings/ drawings, and sketches, to get the feel of thier characters and whatnot, so when i go to do the piece, i dont have to rely on as much ref... but i will do what is needed, ima pump my heart and soul into this, and hopefully finish it.... anyways heres the first sketch
ok taking a night break from the whole sketchin blizz stuff, just to do a quick sp from a photo.... ya know, for the hell of it... purely fun, heres about 1 hr 20 minutes in, will post final tonight, even if its not done, i will not be workin on it any more after i go to bed
ok heres the finished deal... pretty good likeness for a 2 hour digipaint for fun had lots of fun with this one ... can go to sleep and rest now
good stuff- maybe add a little more contrast on the lastone
ok sry if u think i was posting some art, but i just wanted to stop by my book caus its been a while, im going to do a huge post later tonight, including digitals, wips, and traditionals... w00t, keep a lookout.... peace
ok i lied... again and again, i did start an acrylic painting tho, still life of an onion, boring, but hey im learnin again... its 4x5 startin small... hopefully will have that posted tomorrow.. for now the start of a b&w drawing for a commission... again, boring, but it is goint to be turned into lineart anyways... i just feel like rendering first
well its still wip... just keep the CONTRAST in mind..
here new sketch in oc while drawing with hurri tonight, gonna work on some traditional now, late
heres a new oc sketch, just a quicky....
so i am not currently drawing my strongest, but i decided to take some time and focus on finished some characters, just so that they are not fully rendered upper half with no legs lol.... so i am working on rough finishes for now... will update more later
oc, and a lil PS... bout 40 mins
a few months have passed... stopped drawing for a bit, getting way back into it now.. soooo decided to post a wip as a xmas present to anyone who likes my work even the tiniest bit... still a VERY early wip... tryin to get it done by thursday.
ok im pissed i must not have save the file for the last one, i got more done but i cant find it... UGH, i give up on it because of that, it wasnt anything special anyways
my friend challenged me to a 1 hour drawing- in my case speedpainting... this is what ended up, it sucks and im very dissapointed in it, but im showing everything i do from now on. I know mostly why this sucks, I started details to early, and was kind of all over the place with where i was drawing, no method at all. lesson learned, time for me to do another.
heres what i got, a lil under 1 hour
heres a quicky i just started, I wanted to post a wip of it now, because i kinda like it, just in case i screw it up which will prolly happen! ugh... anyways here is
ok finished this speed painting, time unknown caus i took a shower during my breaktime, lemme know what ya think.
still might do some changes in ps tomorrow, just maybe though
added-somethin i started, an may finish, never really do male anatomy/figure so here goes a start.

last update for the night/morning time for bed... arm needs work... actually everything needs work, but this is my start... please make me finish it im starting to like how its comin out! haha
facial "character" test.... couldnt sleep so i did a 10 minute sketch of a face from my mind,while i smoked a cig, tryin to get a little character in the face because my usual faces are very emotionless.
eh its the last one tonight i swear
Heres a few things from tonight, most likely some more doodles on the way.
under 10 min,
under 1 hour (unknown),
heres a new WIP, dont feel that great, so ima lay down for a lil, but ill be drawin again in about 20 mins, so more updates tonight, GUARENTEED!
heres a finished robot I just did... first robot ive ever done... cheers
Thanks much for posting in my SB and for the estrellas. Always appreciate the support from other folks. Great stuff coming together here. Jaime your skull studies great example of hard studies and the inks are a great release of flowing forms. I would advice to add a little harder brushed edge to the edges of your planes. Or even reverse the study by going totally crisp at the start and then selectively softening some of the plane edges to turn the form in light.
Good job in any case. Keep filling up these pages.
heres a quicky for a warmup... i have 2 pics posted, the first is a wip i started last night from ref... got home tonight and couldnt find ref, so i used it as a quick 45 min warmup... without the ref this is what i did. its pretty much trash, but im postin everythin i do caus i took a long break, and im tryin to pick up the pace, still rusty. here ya go, more to come tonight!
finished without ref
Don't really remember I ever posted here before, but if I didn't, well shame, cos I really like what I see.
I really like the way you handle values, however, you could've slapt some more contrasts in to this last guy, his features look realistic, but the skin is a bit flat.
Well, Anyways, great stuff. Looking forward to more!
finally took the robot out of open canvas, added a bit in photoshop, tell me if u like this better !!
TigerMilk : Thank you very much , and about that contrast thing, I was gonna mention that, i definetly saw that i needed more contrast, thanks for ur crits, will be remembered for next one!
