Update for today.
@Kerah: No, actually I haven't- even though I've got the full range! I think I will try out more pencil variations upon practising portraits, seems to be the most useful for learning that- do you agree? I guess I will do Still life in pencil as well, as I h-a-t-e it in digital format. ~Hehe yes, I guess he is over it now, he must know that I shall be asking for more joints soon!
Okay, I watched 3 hours ctrl+paint videos today, did all the "homework" assignments on the website and thought I give my hated tablet another go.
With good spirits, I made a still life drawing:
And after that attempted the next one,
..which I aborted because, well, it just bored the SKULL OUT OF ME. Yes I want to learn light and form. No I don't want to spend an hour on a flippin still life with the overwhelming feeling that I am not learning anything /sigh.
I don't get it. I just hate painting- if something doesn't have lines, it's so floaty and dangerous to me >_>
Well anyway after getting seriously annoyed with the still life, I thought I'd draw figures from imagination, see how that goes after two weeks of figure drawing practice. I also drew a Serpent Guard from photo ref, and then tried to apply some Serpent Guard armour and render it- lol, me render. Failed, unexpectedly.
And then I attempted to draw, in some sort of semi-still life painting, to draw a shark-submarine-thing that I modelled this morning while watching ctrl+paint tutorials. I also added a version that is somewhat closer to what I had in mind- still looks like a digimon though.
It's SO going to be pencils again tomorrow _o_
