Here are two versions of the tree, one with lines and one without. Of the people I've shown it to, about 2/3 prefer the one with lines. I'm leaning toward the one without lines, though. Think I'm going to prepare both to turn in at class and see what the critique has to say. Finally, there's a detail of the textures used in the ground and the tree, which both came from photos that I took a few months ago of mud and tree bark.
JFierce: Thanks for dropping by. I've seen that advice about the smudge tool before too and rarely use it. Thanks for the link - great thread.
I made it to figure drawing today. This is 1.5 to 2 hours of work. I worked out proportions and contours lightly in pencil and then switched to ballpoint pen.
Sunday session again. The primary light was just behind the model's head, and the secondary light was in front of her off to her left. Since she effectively already had a halo, I went for the angel thing. This is a stiffer drawing that I'd like. About 2 hours.
First couple of pages for a webcomic. I need to build up a buffer, so this won't be out for a while, but I thought I'd post the first couple here.
The experiment here was to outline the areas of shadow and highlight with smaller contour lines and the main borders of body and limbs with thicker lines. Did it first in pencil and then inked. About 2 hours.
Illustration homework was to do some sketching/drawing on the topic of "the descent." So, I did this during lunch today. Never mind how there got to be a stone in the clouds.
Here are some character designs (!) for a comic I'm working on for Illustration class. It's for Edgar Allen Poe's story "The Sphinx." Setting is approximately 1850.
This is a chapter start drawing I did for a friend's book. Took about an hour over lunch, ballpoint pen. No reference, and I think you can tell.
This is another assignment for Illustration class. We had to design a wine label or related product label. This is mine.
Glass and flower drawn in pencil, then painted in photoshop. I could be happier with the table and may go back to spend more time on it. This is the final project for illustration class, though.
This is a chapter-start drawing I've been working on for the last few days in between working on the illustration final. Time to kick these into high gear. Will do them all in pencil, then ink them.
These aren't sketches per se, but I've been working on them for a while. The color one is a book cover, and the second one is a chapter start.
Hey Scott! You're really improving here, I loved your professor from the last page but I liked him more in post #259 than in the finished version, he kinda lost a bit of his appeal when you put in the black around him.
The rabbit in post #228 is also awesome, wow for ballpoint, mine rarely turn put this good
Keep up the good work!
Here are some life drawings. The first one I did today and was about 2 hours. After that are a series of gestures I did from the same pose (mostly). Marker and brush on these. Finally there are some life drawings I did at a party last weekend. It was a middle-eastern themed party.
At work I make user models called personas, and it's usually a pain to find pictures of people to go with them. I decided to draw them this time. Alice is a post-doc in biomedical research, and Alan is a doctor/researcher who is in charge of the overall research funding grant.
Alice took about an hour and a half, and Alan took about two. Penciled and inked, then colored in Photoshop.
Neither of these look finished because I'll be polishing them up in Photoshop. That said, here they are. The second one is modeled on a photo of Jennifer Connelly.
