painting and stuff
cool sb. maybe the spartan thread in the Community activity would be a nice thing for you. check it out when you have a chance.
WOW orc study for friends comic idea. Attempting to notice distinguishing shapes in there body's. Oh and orc legs are a son of a bish IMO.
MeTaL-Mike: Thanks for stopin' by!
jedininjaman:Thanks for the C&C. I Stopped by your sb and liked it alot!
WOW orc head shots!
havin fun in painter. i would some input
on your graphic style demon thing:
try to think more about the form in lightsource. I'm pretty sure that the effect you are shooting for 'a la hellboy' has the shadows in black, and then the parts in light in color. you have inconsistent lightsources, and blacks just thrown around everywhere. Try to break down the form into large shapes of light and shadow keeping in mind your light source.
on the orc faces:
you are a nerd. I know nothing about wow.
when I am drawing things on the computer, what I will usually do is after the initial planning [line drawing] I will put down [on a new layer] a 50% grey layer set to multiply [so you can keep your lines] then work on a new layer on top of that to carve out the lights and darks. If you're starting without line, I'd just lay down a 50% grey before you even start. it helps speed things up, and will allow for a better value range. Also, environments are usually more interesting in a horizontal format [because we see in horizontal format. 16:9 is usually reall good [because we've been conditioned by movies at that ratio]. I find working in a square to be very challenging compositionally.
now I'm not sure if this was intentional [and please forgive me!] but the branch thing in the lower left is like a penis, and the hole in the tree thing is like a vagina. maybe i'm just being a perv.
Looking better and better by each post!
Try to find a book on anatomy and a bunch of bodybuilder mags, use the mags as reference to draw from. Keep the anatomybook at hand to give you some help with how the muscles connect etc. I do this all the time, and then i just disregard the whole thing and make everything bigger=)
i will get to the replying of the comments soon! for now more arts...
about to paint over this one. trying to see what colors fit.
nice, i like your creatures, you've come up with some interesting ideas with the more mutilated, half-robot/elemental demons. right now i'd say watch the waists and the legs on some of your figures because they look a little thin, but i can see your doing your figure studies so you'll probably overcome that issue soon. keep it up man, i would like to see what other diabolical creations lurk in your head.
i swear i'll get to the comments soon. im just super busy atm. here is some practice pics from the Christian Loren Scheurer DVD series.
WIP- would love any feedback you would have for this digi matte painting in progress.
Liking the digi-matte's and landscape concepts. Cool stuffs!
hey kaffinated, this is a good start so far. I agree with texahol on his earlier comments about hogarth. Its nice to see that you're dabbling in envo work among other things, so keep experimenting. I liked the head studies in page 1, your school sketch, among things. Try to keep the studies coming at a consistent rate, the theory you get from that stuff will help you branch out at a later stage with much more ease. Keep it up!
ashrumm: Thank you, checked your sb out and was very impressed. how long did it take you to get where you are on anatomy?
Sirio_Brozzi Thanks for the input on here and in IRC. I shall have those studies comming at a constant rate soon. right now i have to deal with a bat shit crazy contemperary art teacher atm.
iMaiMAs always thank you for stopping by and the kind words.
Dabaers It seems you have some wild ideas in your head after taking a look at your sketch book. I'll do my damnedist to watch my proportions in future work. thanks for the C&C.
RandAlThoryou keep up you excellent progress too!
