So, sorry I havent posted in about 6 days. But all is not lost - I only DIDNT do art on 5 of those days.
I felt like I needed 2 or so days off once I worked on those entries, but it got extended to 4-5. I did life drawing yesterday, and then some doodles today. Ive been doing a little reading too. I had a good read of LinRans colour tutorial and I really liked it, after reading some Gurney Journey too I figured I might look into doing the whole RGB colouring all the time. Its seems like, for predominantly digital painter, being able to colour pick with RGB seems like a HUGE advantage. Gonna look into that some more.
Enough chit chat, I feel like I lost a little steam, and now Ive regained it.
thanks for the comments everyone, appreciate them.
And dont worry Tom, I intend to keep this up as much as possible with a few gaps for breathing every now and then Thanks for the encouragement to keep going.
This isnt really important but If i write a few things in here, I might pay more attention to it, and do it - so you guys notice when Im not doing what I say I will.
More FACS - atleast complete the anatomy sections.
A few practice studies working in RGB completely.
Do a practice piece pushing rendering to the MAX - even if its only a small section. I wanna see what style and finish I can produce.
Read more Science of Drawing and do some studies.
More portraits and females.
Maybe this will just be my agenda for a week or so.
A random barbarian, inspired somewhat by Sam Bosma's amazing Conan. Some poor Torsos - was having trouble finding my starting points (doing muscles or boxes, or looking at form, still need to nail my 'starting points' for figures) and then some shitty Life Drawing, was only half a day so I had no time for warming into it. Need to work on the subtleties of working out Likeness, maybe exaggerate for the sake of likeness. Might be being too clinical about it. Learn to draw features closer, like eye shapes specifically.
Pff.. what a mess, must talk less.
Edit - Torsos are really fucking lazy, goddamn I need to step up my game.
