Ännu en svensk, yay! Ser bra ut än så länge, fortsätt öva på anatomi bara och teckna dagligen, vare sig du gör det i några minuter eller flera timmar så ska du se att du blir bättre i rasande takt.
Såg att du studerade på skövdes universitet föresten, har tänkt söka dit nästa år om jag, mot all förmodan, fortfarande är arbetslös då, hehe. Så att få höra lite intryck från själva utbildning skulle vara kul.
Imaginary: Thanks for commenting! and the good advice =)
Tittade igenom delar av din sb, väldigt inspirerande studier! vackert tecknade.
angående skövde högskola, jag går bara första året men trivs jättebra. Utbildningen blir vad man gör den till så klart men tar man bara tillvara på tiden här så har man alla förutsättningar att nå dit man vill. De teoretiska kurserna är ibland ganska tunga, men de har varit väldigt intressanta och givande än så länge.
attached made an effort and scanned some of my life-drawing stuff
Hi! Nice Sketchbook!
Something I noticed about your latest painting is, that the hair seems not to be belonging to the person, but rather like beeing just layed ontop of the picture...
I guess it is because of the hard shadows of the hair strands, which cross the face and the edges between hair and shoulders/neck... it seems like they have thick outlines.. and the light situation of the hair does not seem to be the same as in the face, as well... Try to find a photography of hair which has similar strands crossing the face and compare it to yours
I hope I could help you a little bit 8]
She looks scary, hehe. On top of what Demodeus said you might wanna add some single strands of hair here and there, it'll make the hair more believeable i think. Oh and my first SPs felt flat too, so i got the advice to change my lighting setup to get some stronger shadows and it helped, so maybe you could try that. Keep it up!
Here's some studies to keep the thread alive =) Been working so much lately so I havent had the time to draw anything more interesting, but there will be some fun updates as the summer progresses, promise!
Imaginary, Demodeus Thank you both for the useful pointers!
the summer is finally over and now I hope I'll have more time to keep this thread updated with new pictures. Looking at it now though I just wanna trash it and make a new one... but I shouldnt. And I wont, so here are a bunch of stuff Ive done for the summer class I took.
Your works look really good, especially the absinthe fairy. As a crit, I'd say that you try to define the shapes like something separate from eachother, with separate textures for the different areas, and your works lack something that unifies the whole picture. I'd suggest working from random silhouettes, created by a few, big strokes. Try to define lights and shadows with more big strokes, using some of those textured brushes, and then go on by defining and rendering things.
Anyway, you're showing some good works! Keep it up!
My tribute to author Peter O'Donnell who passed away May 3rd 2010.
I grew up reading the Modesty Blaise comics/novels and she has always been a role model to me, and a big part of my life. I have a painting on the wall in my bedroom, or rather a framed print of an oil painting, depicting Modesty Blaise by the original artist Jim Holdaway. It has always been special to me since it's the only MB picture in colour done by Holldaway that I've seen and this piece is very much inspired by it.
