Good stuff Dan, Wind in the Willows has never looked cooler
my first acrylic illustration ever. woohoo. took forever. added some fish and the boat digitally to see if they worked. do they? gimme some crits so i can go back in with paint and finish this!
Agree with cgaddict. Your underwater acrylic painting is FAB.Your dedication to compose a believable acrylic image of underwater environment of this quality is awesome.
hey man sweet stuff, you really have a great ornate sensibility. i.e the the strands with the lizard, real nice. the last piece is really awesome, i like the colurrs mann. As for a critique, or advice, I'd push the value seperation, to add more contrast. maybe play with the overlay/darkened or whatever layers to darken parts, play around, I think you'll get what I'm saying when you see it yeah if you darkened the background, the foreground stuff will pop big timez. push it to it's limit man. can't wait to hear you and dave tag team the stream, those are always funny as hell haha.
Heya Dan, wow nice paintings, love the saturation on your bro's face, really nice glow. The deep sea one looks amazing too! Not surpied it took ages, time well spent though, I've love to try traditional like this sometime.
Nice value study of this old guy, brush strokes on the face are working well!
oooh danny dan dan dan I miss you
i'd suggest drawing through the construction a bit more, so you don't run into the problems like on the posed arm where it looks all stubby.
also it looks like the features of the face are a tiny bit off from each other, drawing thru the construction will really solidify the structurez and help facilitate them learninz.
good take on classic scenes( like the one with the divers), but the main problem is atmosphere , given by color; more exactly there is no atmosphere, when using colors that may look that are there like orange you can make a big mistake.
The charters in that illustration are under the sea, so they are surrounded by a liquid mass, they seem pretty far from the viewer so the blueness of the water must affect how we see their suits , the same with the other surrounding things
Hey man, really great sketchbook to look through.
The underwater acrylic painting is really cool, has a interesting feel to it. I really like the ship faded into the background with the sunlight coming through the very top of the water.
Studies are also looking good. No real crits from me, just keep it up.
You'll have to post that buff orc when you're able to.
Keep your switchblade ready.
heres a less buff goblin. buffer goblins soon.
also, a whole week of HAND studies to blow my mind is coming up. whos gonna join us?
Love the handsome work here
son of a bitch I love this sketchbook. You should be proud. This is what I hope to be able to do in future years.
