Hey man I like your work and your digital painting progress (the fight club process is one of my favs). Keep drawing gilrs cause of you do then you'll be suprised how good you are when you draw em and you'll love it lol.
Keep it up
Loving your work, you have a good sense for values and a nice painting style. One stipulation- sometimes the proportions of your heads seem off e.g. eyes not lining up, heads being too long in length and not being in proportion to the body. I'm sure with practice, you'll improve in no time.
BTW I think your photo studies are brill, they look like paintings but also pull off a sense of realism. Keep it up
Silent-samurai87: haha yeah I'm slowly beginning to like drawing girls
Hunin: yeah head proportion is a big problem for me, that's what happens when you draw stylized for years before beginning realism.
Ghast: thanks man!
Color studies! c:
did the first one while streaming, it was my first time, it was fun! tho I was really nervous through it.
a little photostudy and something just for fun
I love that team fortress pic! The expression on the girl's face is priceless, and the concept is just too cute. :3
Your studies are getting more and more hectic, I'm loving the way you're treating the colour, and I take back my comment on the stylizing, what you're doing looks amazing how it is, and the character you add really gives it the extra punch.
Haven't updated in awhile!
been on vacation and all that but heres some stuff
critique is VERY welcome
Holy crap Amazing paintings man. The female study looks sweet ^.^
made these using some brushes I made
more studies o_o
did the second one on livestream! I really enjoy streaming.
still cant get simple faces right
This is looking really promising!
I think it's a good exercise drawing lot's of sculls from photos to understand and draw the head correctly. Also I love the rendering on the last one :3 It looks sharp and crisp, which adds photo realism.
And maybe look into some nose shapes, the nose might be a bit thin.
Anyways, keep on drawing, as i said in the beginning, it looks really promising. Looks like you've made ton's of progress since you started posting here, so keep at it.
keep up the great work, detlef!
Guy or gal oh so fine
please take a look
and maybe drop a line
in my sketchbook
my sketchbook, I don't use it as often as I should >.<
and an owl o_o
couple of studies o3o
some stuff, I haven't been able to draw a lot of studies because I'm focusing on my comic.
Some mixed stuff! most unfinished, I didn't really have motivation for it :/
Do anyone have some tips for getting motivation to draw original stuff? I can't seem to do it
Your studies are beautiful and i can see that you have a great eye for painting. one thing i would suggest is to not paint from blobs like that (at least not at this point). I would recommend doing thorough contour-drawings and then painting over them. The reason is because i see a huge difference between the quality and maturity of your studies and your illustrations. I believe this is because you arnt getting the maximal understanding of whats going on in your studies!
Just a suggestion. i hope it helps!
In your studies, remember that the most important thing is "Why", not "What"
you are fantastic. love the portraits!
wow man!! great progress! amazing work on the studies too. your colors are so nice. especially the skin tones, they are easy to get muddy with them, so respect for keeping them nice and vibrant!
Heres some posters I made for a school assignment.
aaand some bg's from head, which is pretty obvious because of how cartoony they look.
feedback is welcome as always.
you have good stuff here. I really like your paintings and figure studies!
art is never finished, only abandoned~Leonardo da Vinci
just a small update, I have decided to widen my horizon of drawing this year by drawing a lot of stuff I normally wouldn't draw, so I'm starting up with some animals. I still don't own a scanner T__T
i also made a recording of this piece
