Here's my 1st successful CHOW entry . Pretty cool topics lately, just need to get out my comfort zone more and properly participate in them (get feedback from others and post WIPs etc). Other then that just a few photo ref studies of color. Hard round brush 100% opacity in PS is a pain getting as close to the colors in the images but it's a neat practice.
It looks you know exactly what its going to take to get you to that point of creating stuff similar to the stuff you enjoy. Aloooot of studying going on and that is great. The ones I really liked were the hard brush studies a post or two ago. You really nailed some good things in those.
But there is two things that consistently seem off, and thats some drawing issues and your values. I don't see the references but I'll say the colors usually look believeable, but your values are killing some of it.
For the drawing issues, its always going to take the act of doing it over and over for it to lock into place that things are out of alignment or too small etc, but if every study you take an extra 15-20mins to double check and double check one particular area and till its pretty exact, it will only come easier honing in on that tight spot.
Just thoughts I had while look through your stuff. Keep cranking
Just have fun.
@ Aveh: Good look! I'll definitely keep those things in mind and apply em' as much as possible.
Chow 219 from a couple weeks ago (failed attempt) and a photostudy WIP. Blocking in the values right now under my initial sketch. http://d.imagehost.org/t/0136/Sayat_01_by_sim4nee.jpg
Started going to figure drawing classes on Thursdays (Tomorrow will be the 5th time I guess). I'm quite rusty and the quality of the pics aren't helping but I'm glad to be around peeps who share a common interest and just to get out the house. Other than that just some Loomis and photo studies (which I had colored until ArtRage decided to crash on me FUUUUUUUUUUUU ).
Hey all! Hope everyone is enjoying this time of year.
Just a quick update w/ some Loomis head studies mixed with a few of my own, a random sketch from a figure drawing session, my touched up version of the Chow I did before and a couple of portraits from imagination.
@ k_z: I appreciate it, will do.
@ Quintonius: Yessir! Trying to go at it harder so I'll get there.
I'm back with some MOAR studies. Drew 100 men for a little challenge on Sketchoholic.com last week. A couple of portraits from imagination (the guy is kinda a self-portrait of me I guess lol). A couple color studies and a warrior chick concept I'm working on. I dunno what direction i'll take it yet.
