little gardener update
i love the colors in your paintings... its some really good stuff.
if i had one thing to suggest as an area for improvement i would say focus more on anatomy, and not just anatomy but more so the dynamics in your poses. a lot of your characters just look a little too stiff.
your paintings are really coming along well though cant wait to see more!
Hi, you're definitely a character designer for shure! Nice interesting variety of forms and color uses in costumes! I see the experimentation textures and values that are assimilated together in some abstract-methodology, but it all adds to the personality of the figure. It's also nice exploration of silhouette.
I would say that attributes to your environments in the shape usage area, defining and highlighting masses of overlapping texture. Environments have potential, and so do creatures. Anatomy is best for creature studies, above character, or shapes. But they all add up anyhow, use them at will.
Nice improvements from humble beginnings! keep it up! just my quick comment, no crit.
Behind every great master is a great student...
Imagination is more important than knowledge- Albert Einstein...
ManHands: Yup I know, working on it all the time.
Poetryman: That sounds like a nice way to break it down haha, especially on the abstraction part. I'm way more interested in shape than in function so to speak which might be a bad trait as concept-artist
focus on environmental design thats will be good for u
Some traditional abstract stuff I did over the past year or so. Looking to exhibit and sell stuff.
Sweet stuff. I like your bold use of colors. You've grown a lot since the last time I participated in a chow (Titania). There's a lot of potential here but I'm seeing some irregularities in your anatomy. Your character designs would look so much more awesome if you just tighten up those proportions.
Keep up the great work.
Wow, Titania hahaha. Yeah that's a while ago, thx for the compliment Working on those anatomical things all the time
I don`t think your speedpainting isn`t as bad as you said. The perspective is there - but I wouldnt draw the ramp so close to the horizone.
Your anatomy is improving - but I would recommend you to practise more on faces.
And please excuse my poor english - I`m still learning.
Thx man! And you're absolutely right: It's not about the brush. It's about what kind of effect or texture you want to portray. And instead of handpainting it I create a brush for it. I tend to go a bit more stylized on those brushes as well, mostly avoiding phototextures.
Pro-tip: Do some random shit in Alchemy, paste it in Photoshop and make a brush from it. Tons of fun ^_^
