    DMAC i hate clowns. I guess not all kitchen knives have a blade guard, but it seems weird for his hand to be flush with the end of the blade either way. Looks good (horrifying) anyhow.

    As far as I'm concerned that should be the way that all rich pompous people should walk from now on.
    That way if a beggar gets in their way they can promptly kick them in the face without breaking their stride or their patrician façade.

    That reminds me of how poodles walk. Snooty dogs.

    Ikage - Normally i would use multiply for the base colour, and then paintover the pencil drawing just on a normal layer. I do sometimes use things like 'Screen' and 'Lighten' for glows. I'll try playing around with other layers.

    Leggs - cheers man. youre right about the digital face not working as well. Theres something abouit the pencil drawing with has more character and life. (seems to be a re-occuring issue when i go from pencil to digital rendering)

    I have been LOVING all the art in this thread. Since I'm going to college for web design I figured I'd start back into art and made myself a goal of an art project a day. Here is the first. Please be kind, it's been 12 years since I did anything artistic sadly. The IT field doesn't tend to need artists. haha

    Focus on one at a time, I say. I would start with your proportions. Practice drawing the body in block forms, maybe?

    If you can spare a bit of cash, there's a list of good books in the questions thread that would surely help you out.

    Agree. Google 'free loomis pdfs' and some links should come up. If you really want to go cheap, go to your college library and try to find a Bridgeman book and photocopy it. There was one at my University and i photocopied the entire book for around $7. It takes a long time but if i where to buy it at Borders it would have been around $60!

    I think you're trying to practice too many things at once (even though they all technically tie in with one another in the wonderful world of figure drawing). Absolutely start drawing figures from life if you can - from pictures if you can't. Sexxay ladies are only sexxay if drawn properly, and this girl's got a whole lotta issues going on. Start with the simple - pencil and paper. :)

    It doesnt look realistic in regards to looking 'life-like', but it is believable. You've definately captured movement in the drawing, so thumbs-up.

    btw your drawing looks like it's drawn with a crayon. Is this a small drawing enlarged digitally, or are you using a thick pencil. just curious.

    Thanks, WCK. Yeah, I didn't mean photo realistic, just not like he has extra joints or unproportioned parts. I used an 8B pencil to go over my light lines and... it looks like shit. It's not bad for large canvas work, but its bad for shading/small stuff.

    So yeah, dragon contest. Working on the composition and I'm stumped. Originally I had a dorf running side by side with the elf on the right, but couldn't get it to work. Should I crop it? I feel like that will remove any movement from the piece. Or put some landscape on the right? I'm not sure.

    Thanks for any help guys.

    Hmm, doodling in meetings today. Did poses trying to look at proportions since that was mentioned about my last thing. Then looked it up on my art and anotomy references. I'm having trouble seeing where my proportions are off. Unless people were talking about how she basically had no internal organs. haha. Can anyone see what I'm missing here?

    On the later 2 bits, isn't that what everyone here pointed out to you, like, 2 months ago?

    I'm not going to dwell on that, because it's already been covered. What I will say is that that "Lisa Frank" palette has got to go.

    Ok, for one thing, you're not going to get such a quick transition from orange->purple in an actual sky, at least not on this planet. If you looked in the opposite direction of the sun you might get that purple in the sky, but that's going to be a much larger distance than what you're got.

    Second, water isn't fucking blue (I'm cursing because I know I've said this exact point a hundred goddamned times already). Water only appears blue when it is reflecting a blue sky or other blue object, or it's water for a mini-golf course that somebody has dyed with a bunch of chemicals. This means, if your sky is orange and purple, your water is also generally going to be orange and purple. Forcing it to be blue may work in a cartoon, but not in anything that's supposed to look realistic.

    What color did you make your water? Blue. Does that make any sense given its surroundings? No.

    With that settled, there's the broad issue of working out what the hell the color scheme for this thing is supposed to be. How are you unifying the composition with your color? Well, at this point, the simple answer is you're not. It's a jumble of local, 'plant=green jeans=blue' colors with a sort of half-assed lip service towards light and shade.

    Easiest thing to do, simplify the shit out of it. Light source is orange. Mix in orange pigment into all lit areas. Use the light bouncing off that purple/pink in the part of the sky you can't see in the picture and establish that as your general shadow color, introduce it into all shaded areas. Bam, a solid, though admittedly not exactly brilliant color scheme has been established. Everything is either basically orange or basically purple, tying everything together into a strong, simple statement.

    WCK_beach.jpg

    Now, obviously, not every painting in the world is or should be simplified down so much to the point where local color is practically a non-factor, but until you understand the necessary role of light in color- and for that matter, until you understand light in general, you're simply not going to be able to wield local color effectively when it comes to realistic art. You'll get a lot farther a lot faster by making intelligent decisions on how and why to simplify, than you will by just plowing ahead and hoping it works out in the end.
