    I don't know about hat to head quantum mechanics, but you shouldn't be drawing on a white background like that. Pick a neutral colour or at least gray.

    I decided to do a cloud study. I think I liked it more when I was half-done than I do now. Obviously, I need to do more studies--I think I'll try to find some time to stare at some Constables.

    They both look quite impressionistic right now. By that I mean the shading. Monet or some such with the brush strokes, you know?

    yeah I was trying to make him look very haggerd and beat up, if that didn't communicate then I failed at it. If you have any tips on the process i should go through for making the shadow/highlights work with skin textures and blemishes then I'm game, this is only really the second or third thing i've done with photoshop for coloring and I'm trying to do more (mostly work with other stupid crap like sculpture or intermedia stuff, sigh) the first was mostly in illistrator but i don't have that program myself i was just using the ASU lab computers ( :/ there's no detail on it was just going for basic comic strip chap http://img76.imageshack.us/img76/1074/wthimcaverageti5.gif and my teacher loved it so I'm not going to argue). But yeah, problem at hand anywase, I know i should probably get GIMP i hear it's as good at Photoshop so it's probably better then photoshop elements anywase, hopefully it will have a smooth function my wacom is only 5x4 and is killing me on trying to make a nonwobly line.

    Well enough ranting, If anyone has anymore tips on things like anatomy and textures...or hat to head mechanics...or anything I'm always listening and trying to improve.

    Well it's good that you want to improve, but the only way you can i through direct observation.

    Scos, I find your sketchbook cover humorous, was this your intent?
    Also, is it done in traditional media? It actually looks halfway like you were trying Photoshop methods with watercolor or markers.

    It's all the same with artists and musicians- you steal from the best because the best have to look classy and say "ah yes, I am happy that a young artist likes my work so much" instead of "get your own style, you pissant".

    I dunno, humorous in what way?

    It's more like 99% traditional 1% photoshop. I drew the character first with a black marker and then went in with some 20%, 40%, 60% and 80% copics to render it. I thinned out some white acrylic and applied that to the highlights to make it pop. The only photoshop is a few very small tweaks to fix some mistakes and push a few values up or down in a couple spots--they're probably not where you think they are either.

    No, I mean the painting style looked a bit digital despite being traditional. It's humorous in that "weird monster man wearing lopsided crown" way.

    Speaking of sketchbooks, I started a new one, so how about I post a metric ton of shit from my old one and the first pages of my new one, yeah?

    When it's adorning my sketchbook, it's just a neat decoration.

    When it's being served to your monitor from my webhost, then it's a piece of art open for scrutiny. If I can make a few extremely minor tweaks to fix mistakes that I can't do on the actual cover due to the stubborn nature of physical media, why not? Again, I cannot overstate how minor the tweaks that I made are.

    Iruka: Awesome! Something about your sketches gives me the urge to color them half the time, for some odd reason.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    edited May 2008
    I think the image looks better in the warm tones, scos. And you can color anything you want, if the urge is strong. I'll probably pick our a few to color myself after finals.

    ...? What are you talking about? That's like...a direct copy, without tracing. It would be different if that were a photo, but it's not. You're just copying someone else's art. That's all.

    Well, let's just make sure that we understand the word "emulate." Emulate is basically a fancy word for "copy." One who emulates is trying to do something just as well as somebody else. In this case, anjin decided to copy the image from Walking Dead and in so doing tried to emulate that artist. He fell short. However, in his defense he was using a mouse. However, at the end of the day it's still a copy of somebody else's work and anjin should own up to that much.

    First of all - We have an edit button on this forum for a reason. Learn to use it.

    Secondly - It's only fair to give credit where credit is due. You didn't use is as a point of reference. You copied somebody else's artwork. Like I said, there's nothing wrong with doing that but don't act like you're doing something else, here.

    That would have been acceptable if he hadn't said that he used it as a "point of reference" in his next post. Greg Land might use photos for points of reference but I'm pretty sure that he doesn't copy somebody else's artwork. I might be wrong on that one, though.

    Yea Iruka, I think the background is really cheesy as well but it was better than plain white -_-

    Like I said it's my first piece, also, it was done totally in Illustrator :(

    I'm a bigger fan of Pencil + Paper anyways :P
