Fever Ray- I'm Not Done...
@snatti: atey! thanks my friend the book in that post is the Tactics Ogre complete guide ^^" i'm a nerd for collecting the japanese version of the guide books as they contain the artwork and yes, portraits in the mirror are indeed tricky!
@raminafshari: thanks ramin~
@orochigenocide: thank you orochi! yeah portraits are one of my weakest aspects. i definitely agree with you on pushing more of the values to pull out more of the forms. i'm fine when drawing a cast/bust portrait but actual ppl is tough *study more*
@lolbbq: thanks bbq! no reference for those, they were done from my mind. but as i look at them again-- they don't seem to be much improvement o.o" then again, it was kinda rushed and used as a test of seeing what i retained from the hogarth book. i'm still going to do ref studies though!
@Silent-samurai87: why thank you samurai~ i want you to create a sketchbook! ^^"
@Fallenangel: ty fallen! i agree, faces/head/portrait is the hardest thing for me
@Silwynar: haha definitely sil! send me pics of your face so i can study! haha jkjk
@skMOP: ah yes... i see what you mean skmop. thank you for the crit portraits portraits portraits!
@Just Call Me Bruce!: thank you sir bruce! i'm glad you mentioned the more direct light source issue i didn't really have a good light source but i will keep it in mind for future SPs.
@karantina: thanks karantina! i agree with everyone too ahhh! haha.
@ThomasM: thank you thomas! hearing that from a pencil master is always good news 100 pages??! haha soon my friend... soon
@Yor: thank you Yor! will most definitely keep going~ you too!
@Bethany K.: thanks bethany~
waaaahhhh... all this talk about portraits/faces and head construction is rly good! i'm glad you are all able to provide me with helpful crits! so i will lean more of my studies toward heads and such but will still try to balance everything else; imagination and the overall anatomy and gotta do more landscape thingies... okay so here's a tiny update (once again) sorry!
this drawing is def. inspired by a danielC sketch-- but mostly, i wanted to play with composition and how to implement negative shapes more effectively :U
i will drop by the sketchbooks tmw *promise*
