Hey man, first off, nice stuff.
You've got a lot of strengths going. I like how you render faces, eyes, and all that stuff. The blue pencil is really working for you, I like it. You should definitely work on some anatomy studies, but the figure studies you've got are really great. Especially the ones from the most recent post, you're really doing a great job with the forms of the muscles. Keep up the good work *watches*
i gotta jump on the nz band wagon!
welcome man great start! a word of advice, whenever you get crits from kronos, listen extra hard, he picks up everything! hes got one of those freaky
eagle eye things going on.
great ingres work but you already know that, keep i up. awesome
Hey, looking good. I really like the soft shading you're adding to the faces. You do a great job of defining the features. The blue pencil studies are another one of my favorite things here...really nifty. You've got a really unique style going here, keep developing your anatomy skills, it's looking good.
That's some beautiful shading on your Teen Challenge piece...so pretty. Nice cast shadow on the face and everything.
I think on your CHoW you could maybe add more darks to the piece? Or...hmm..dunno. It's obviously not in it's polished stage yet, I just think maybe having a wider spread of value in the piece could help. Keep it up! Paint away...
to improve : simplifie forms and shapes - dont start with realism start with easy geometrie - understand proportions volumes mass orientation in space then get more n more complex
a simplyfied spehere is a cube
(there are some rules of drawing u should be aware of and keep in ur mind all the time )
a quad = 4 angles per 360 degree
a circle = 360 angles per 360 degrees
got what i mean ? :>
if u look at wireframe picturs from 3d models u will see
Great figure studies there,nice and confident line work...
and as for Chow,nice idea there...yeah i agree head is maybe too big but ok it is a strange octopus guy so i guess it doesnt matter....i cant crit your painting couse im clueless my self...i kinda admire anyone who can paint with painter
amer-nazri : Hey thanks...I use hogarth and bridgman....but the ones so far are from KChens thread which can be found in the tutorials and tips section on CA.
Anyways here are some stuff I did these past couple days.
Some more KChen studies...a study from characterdesigns.com.....some quick bridgman studies....and photoshop/painter sketches. The last two are supposed to be for a ut3 mod paperX and I are trying to get running. The painting ended up looking lik jason chan's stuff which wasn't my intention.
Okay dude, first off, how do you get your blue pencil studies so clean and beautiful? I really, really just love those. They're absolutely gorgeous. All of the Bridgman stuff...really great. The figure is my favorite though...something about using the blue for shading...it really comes off extremely well.
On the painting, the girl in the purple looks really nice, the tones on the face are good, although I think some of the form is confusing based on where you put the highlights. Other than that I think the skin tones are really great, especially in the shadows. So much to learn...we'll have to work all this out in some oc's. :3
I really like what you're doing so far with the pirate, design, colors, everything is really great. The striped pants are the best. It seems like her breasts strongly shaded in comparison to the shirt holding them. Haha...so either flatten them out, or add more form to the shirt. You'd probably want to go with the second option. The shading on the face is really nice, what with the rosy cheeks and everything. It's those little things that bring the piece to life. Awesome.
Those last studies are looking keen, keep them up. The values on the woman with the drapery look especially good. The painting of the Piratey girl is looking good but she seems awful long in the mid-section to crotch area. Her hips also seem dented in. Careful on those feet as well, they might end up looking rubbery and weak if you don't tweak their cruves a bit.
