    @Sublimus yo these character designs are pretty cool and pretty CLEAN. I'd love to see one colored.

    @Surfpossum playing some No Man's Sky, I assume?

    My roommate left this note, then signed it with a penis. I added another penis, finished it off by making those penises part of a screaming face, and then I added the running drawings for funsies. I'm oddly proud of the entire composition, tbh

    I really dig all the little details in these. Is it me or does he look a little pigeon toed?

    @Surfpossum That's some deep-sea cavern with glow worms and fireflies or somesuch floating above an eldritch nightmare. That's what it is.
    @Sublimus for the record, your feet are getting better

    Drew this one during a round of Telestrations. So, like 2 minutes, no underdrawing, no nothin:

    The rest of these I did standing or sitting at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (and Art):

    These ones were all on the same wall, and I only got through about half of them before I felt like I was in the way blocking people who wanted to see the exhibit (I wasn't). I'll be going back probably next weekend to get the rest of em. A bunch of small mammals.

    Another one. I don't like this one as much, and I think I'll do one more to make it a set of 3.

    I like the torso of that one a bit better, the directional strokes defining the form, and the lighting kind of putting it all together looks nice.

  • SublimusSublimus Registered User regular
    @acadia Thanks!!

    Ok last one of these, and a lineup.

    @Sublimus I might have mentioned this at some point to you before, (or maybe it was someone else? I can't remember), so forgive me if this seems familiar.

    I've noticed you've got a tendency to render with a pretty soft look, spending a lot of time making sure you've got these smooth forms down- and that's no bad thing, in and of itself. However, when you apply that same softness to things that would logically be sharp (ie: sharp plane changes, cast shadows), the object tends to lose a sense of solidity- it may end up feeling like an unbaked clay model, rather than being made of skin and muscle and bone.

    What I might suggest as an exercise is to punch in some hard, cast shadows onto these guys (in my example I just made a Multiply layer, lasso tool'd some areas and filled them with a flat gray). Initially, this may just look like some weird cel-shading, but if you then take those hard shadows, and give just a tiny little bit of softening on the form turns, it can really help start to sell the subject as being a believable object lit by real light. It's not a matter of hard or soft across the board, it's having a logical variety of hard and soft edges that makes it feel real.

    @Angel_of_Bacon Thank you!! I'm a total wimp when it comes to edges and values. I should do some studies where I concentrate on those things!

    I think I do tend to enjoy the soft value range as an aesthetic choice, but it is also borne out of a hesitancy too.

    Thanks for the paint over!

    @Sublimus I dig that boot knife. The little details you give your characters are great.

  • SublimusSublimus Registered User regular
    @acadia Thanks!! Trying to find that right level of detail for sure. That knife isn't in the sketch, but I felt it needed something more. Hopefully it doesn't feel too tacked on haha.

    You've kind of lost the gesture a bit, and stood him up a little straighter. The curve on the left side of his torso (and really the whole lean to the right he has in the ref) isn't as prominent. I dig the style of rendering though, with a dark base, painting light on top of it to get large blocks of color rather than starting light and going darker. I also like the DnD-type paintings you've been posting lately, so you know, keep doing that. Do that more.

    More doodles of my own. I love that my friends like playing telestrations. The challenge of getting an idea down in within 2 minutes really clears the brain.

    it's been so long since I did art I almost forgot there is a place I can post art??
    my sister commissioned this piece for her fiancé. And now apparently he's gonna get a tattoo of it? which is a little intimidating tbh.

    Started getting into Spider-Man again, after playing the PS4 game. So did a little doodle of my favorite villain; Green Goblin.

    We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

    You should do a robo that's just a robo head with other robo heads for all the body parts.

    found a weekly figure drawing session that's right near my work and costs $10 for three hours. Which is just crazy? but pretty awesome.

    Do they? that's interesting because I didn't really notice as I was drawing, but you're probably right. It's been a while since I did any live model drawing, and I think it did take me a bit to get comfortable.

    Why not both?

    I personally enjoy the contrast of warm and cool in the blue one. but I could easily see them both printed and facing each other.

    Yeah, with Iruka on that. I'm partial to the blue, but the red is also quite pleasing to the eye - just in a different way.
