Hot pics Kelly!
Check out my sketchbook.
Or deviant art.
Hi and this is a small string of three two almost done and one face pin up in the early stages...
I also just bought the down load from James Kei and recommend it -- these paintings were done of course before I watched this amazing painter of skin!! But watching every day and trying to let it soak in and actually will try to apply it too. Hee
really nice start you've made here, cool skin tones, and good anatomy
just keep drawing and keep posting
In the absence of light, dark will prevail.
see my NEW sketchbook[UPDATED] http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=123027
Hey kelly, cool to see you've got a sketchbook going. You really like that burlesque stuff, don't you? I can dig that!
Keep it up!
did changes to the new girl and started watching down loads, looking at color wheels and generally trying to get a body of work together that hopefully progresses.... also working on lighting, anatomy, faces, details, have fun with my boy friend,remember to feed all of my animals... two cats, three ferrets, three white mice, one rabbit. All of this and keep a positive attitude? Yes.
Enjoy, Kelly X
Hey, Thank you for all of the good words -- Dudes!!!!! You all rock.
Also, Does anyone know how to get on this chat... the one Davi does, I am a total idiot about this chat stuff but like to talk about art, cats, trivia about nerd stuff... Kelly
this is a rough, trying to work in a more painterly fashion... barely even started but the concept is Circus madness!! I may put some clothes on her? As I said just starting on this... Anatomy not good yet and as my teacher critiqued already, may have to make fake bust look real? this may be a problem?
Nice to see that you are being productive!
I really like #8
Keep working on em!
wow great start to your sketch book. theres some great values to your work. the shot through the glass looks very impressive, but i really like what youve done with this one http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1208553008
great skin tonnes! nice action. keep em coming!!
nice sketchbook so far!
you want help on how to make the breasts in the last painting look more real?
first of all, gravity! breast arent half spheres, the fat inside of them get pulled down by gravity, so there is more mass on the bottom than up top... think of it kind of like filling a baloon with water and then letting it hang from your fingers, only that half of it is visible lol. so Its almost a drop shape if you get me... aaaargh its hard to explain!
Also, there are muscles underneath the breasts (same muscles as in males) that usually show through right above them.
hope that helps, cheers!
thank you for the comments and it's a cool section with a little freedom... Now inspired to do more...
Lakka == I don't know what #8 is but thanks a lot!!
tokotewhero == Thank you I looked at a lot of ref for the glass... not perfect but fun!!
archipelago == Thanks for the breast advice, yes, and I looked at your women again and see what you mean, just hard to find the real thing in America, have to move to Sweden! Again your progression in your sketch book as amazing!! Kelly X
Nice stuff here. You have a really good painterly style already going on just keep doing that and use it to do some anatomy studies Like Mark Winters does http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...t=80021&page=3 He carries his lap-top to life drawing class and does some incredible stuff with it.
I love the expression of the girl by the bullet hole. That picture has a great pulp-fiction kind of narrative.
Her nose needs some work though.
Also, you see the dark bar that runs along the top of each post? On the left it shows the date posted and on the right it shows the number of the post That's what Lakka meant by #8. It's handy if you only have one image per post, but if you post several images at a time it doesn't help. That's why I find it usefull to number the individual images so that people can refer back to them.

This is still not finished, this was painted in photo shop with my boyfriend se7en's brushes -- the brushes rock, thank you shay! We are starting to use painter X next week and I will finish this out with painter -- trying new things and trying everything!! Have a good week-end. Kelly X --
great chiks man ! keep posting, and star for you !
Hi this is sumi-e I painted on screen and concrete / with sumi ink and water.
Just to share the difference between painter x and brick n mortar medium...
studied with a Monk, graduated on to rice paper - then fu--ed up the medium by making up my own canvas's -- Kelly -- just trying newness... sorry Monk's!
hello i love all your pin-up style girls, i went through a phase where thats all i was drawing i think it was when i was at cross roads in career choices and i had an option to work as a tattoo artist but alass i stuck with illustration and conceptart. keep up the good work love your skin tones.
Wow, the sumi e in post #21 is really cool. The contrast with that sort of background is working well. Wouldn't mind seeing more of that.
As for this last one, watch the composition. I think your strong reds in the corners are tossing the eye around a bit much, pulling it away from the real subject, the girl. Also, as I'm sure you know, the hand holding the gun (it is a gun, right?) needs some more work. Like a thumb
Hey Kelly some great work here! Don't like to crit a WIP but i'll second what Hai! said about the value of the reds in the corner. If the blood splats are neccesary maybe try choosing dark reds making sure you up the saturation to keep some depth to them. Keep it up! god knows I need to post more personal pieces instead of my studies all the time
I took out clutter and am working on everything still... Thank you, for the comments... I want this to be kind of pulp/seventies blah, blah... Still working on the gun & trying to design it now... Kelly X
Thanks Mark! Yes the face is mud and kind of not good looking at all yet...
Can't wait to fix it... and thank you for the compliment too... !
Hai!^^ Started in Sumi-e and love it so much, these are my roots... want to try to put it together somehow, not to loose my hand in the zen!!
mellongcreate -- you and Hai totally rock! and I took all the mess away and new things are hopefully happening, see what kind of brain I have as a nubie I guess -- we can all learn by making messes I think, mess it all up!!! Kelly
Sexy hot chicks you got there. I can tell you're good at chicks just by spotting your icon in some other artist's threads. The technique on skin and facial expression is especially impressive... really hot...
Anyway about things I think can improve (sorry for sound arrogant by critic someone better than myself):
1. 2nd image, something seems seriously wrong with her lips.
2. 3rd image, right hand anatomy seems strange.
3. 4th image, shadow on right part of her face feels incorrect somehow.
4. 5th image. anatomy of her right waist and hip seems weird...
Sorry just my 2 cents.
