    Ugh... So sleepy. I still thought it would be best if I did some quick figure studies before I go to bed.

    Er... NSFW-ish. But only lightly.

    Since I'm underage I obviously can't attend a real figure drawing class, but this thing has made a pretty handy substitute, check it out.

    Every few months something interesting happens. I'll be browsing through some random comic book forum, just minding my own business, and someone will slam Aquaman. "Hurhurhur, he talks to fish, hurhurhur," and such. Without fail, I then sit down and gouge angrily at my sketchbook for an hour or so, muttering dark curses and gritting my teeth, trying to think of how I'd make Aquaman cool. This was tonight's result.

    But he.. he has superstrength. He can swim as fast as an F-16. He once gave a supervillain a seizure by using his telepathy to attack the part of his brain that hadn't full evolved from its aquatic roots. He's got perfect nightvision, super dense skin, and he can command all aquatic life, up to and including giant squids.

    Man, the dude is not the sum total of what once appeared on a shitty cartoon from three decades ago, and a handful of Seanbaby articles.

    Angel, what's your practice sessions like? how long do you usually practice? Have you answered all these questions already?

    I wish you had an FAQ.

    Uh, what now? Could you be a tad more specific?

    I think what he means* is that you should totally give some clue as to what methods you use in your 3-D work. Potentially a tutorial.


    *this is not what he meant.

    Tutorials are always cool, I remember him having a hell/death knight(or something with chains) tutorial somewhere...

    I dunno, I guess I just want to know how long you practice everyday. The average amount of drawings and doodles that come out of your head each day and stuff. I guess kind of the trivia stuff. More details once I get some sleep

    Uh, it depends? I don't really have an everyday practice schedule or anything, unless you count the stuff I do at work- and what I do there also varies wildly from day to day and project to project, and the output depends on what I'm doing, the revisions required, what style it is in, what methods I'm using, etc, etc, etc.

    My outside of work stuff, I dunno, I work somewhere between zero and 4 hours, depending on my mood? It's hard to give you any hard and fast answers, and I doubt they would have much meaning to anyone even if I could. I don't pay attention to the time, I pay attention to doing the work.

    I don't know if you saw my curse word-laden speedpaint tutorial video, I don't know if that would be a helpful thing to answer your questions or not?

    @P37:
    I doubt I have much to add on the topic of 3d modelling that hasn't been covered in much greater detail and depth elsewhere on the internet, or in any book or magazine about 3d modelling you can buy. Most of my models are just basic box modelling technique with a duplicated instance for symettry. It's all just extrudes, pushing around verts, using the split polygon or split edge ring tool to add detail, maybe a collapse now and then. I don't do anything fancy at all, and I don't really want to write a manual about the basic poly modelling tools in Maya in any case.

    That video has opened me up a little bit more, and it was an awesome experience. I know I'm being incredibly, well, omfgigottaknoweverythingaboutit , but what were those 4 layers during the video? You started with the first one and I completely didn't notice why you added the extra 3.

    I usually just start new layers when I want to have a point I can back up to if I fuck up totally when I try something new, as a kind of cheap mega-undo. Or, when I do a multiply or overlay wash on stuff.

    I like to think it's just because they're die-hard Namor fans, but it's usually 'cause they just so ign'ant.

    Munch, your art is progressing, but I'd really like to see you pushing the anatomy. You can keep going with your rounded stylization, but seeing it made of more realistic forms would really push the coolness of the look. I know it's a really dumb crit to give ("work on anatomy"? How cliché), but most of your drawings seem to have consistently similar forms which gives off a "I've found something that works and I'm sticking with it vibe". Very dangerous!

    Almost didn't post this because I did a bit of cheating on the face (not tracing, but close enough), but I figured since after I did that I almost completely changed the look of her face as well as the lighting on everything, I'd post it anyway. Screw soft lighting from multiple angles, give me horror movie lighting plz.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I've kind of been stagnating artistically lately, drawing a bunch of stuff without really looking to realism, or even other artists for inspiration. So my art's just kept becoming sort of inbred, as I keep repeating the same mistakes, and now they've just sort of become acceptable to my eye. I'll probably do some drawing-from-life exercises to break me out of my rut. Thanks for the crit.

    augh, speedpainting is more difficult than I thought...

    There's just a point where I don't know where the hell I'm going and everything has a bad contrast. Any sugggestions or should I just blend things from life so I understand more or what?

    EDIT : For all the speed painters, how are your brush configurations? I only check other dynamics, sometimes with shape dynamics, and then sometimes none of them are check for darked lines.

    Well, if you're thinking "this has a bad contrast", then the direction you should be going it "how do I get this to have better contrast?"

    There is no reason to get discouraged because you think you've got some problems- the only thing that matters is trying to fix them, without hestiation, without looking back, whatever the cost. If it means wiping out half the picture, if it means making the sky orange instead of blue, if i means moving that person's head position even though waaaaaaaaah I just spent half an hour trying to get it right, whatever! Just do it! If it doesn't look right? Do something else! Knock that motherfucker around until it does what you want it to do!

    You don't know where you're going? Good! Then you have no excuse for not changing things as soon as a thought strikes your brain to do so. Having a picture go through a dozen different compositions, a dozen color changes, completely different designs, entirely different ideas in general, is fine! For every picture I actually show someone, there's been a dozen half-starts, dead ends, garbage, shit that didn't work, stuff that was interesting but flawed, stuff that was ok but not interesting- every success is built on the back of a million failures.

    Any sugggestions or should I just blend things from life so I understand more or what?
    What do you mean by "blend things from life?"
    If you mean doing studies of objects from life, yes. A million times yes.

    Also, do whatever observation you can of everything around you, looking for details, how things work, how they are made, what makes the world apprear interesting to you. Observation is probably the single most important thing to any kind of visual art.
    EDIT : For all the speed painters, how are your brush configurations? I only check other dynamics, sometimes with shape dynamics, and then sometimes none of them are check for darked lines.

    My most typical brush setup, you need a pen-tilt capable tablet for it to be of any use whatsoever, however.

    I use a fairly standard roundbrush for almost all of my painting, speed included. Sometimes I hit the "texture" checkbox for certain effect, but for the most part speed painting is about how you handle the tools, not the tools themselves.

    I haven't posted any art in a while since my primary desktop has been out of commission for nearly 2 months now. I finally got a working refurbished graphics card from the warranty so that should change soon.

    Until then here's something I did on a holdover computer that hardlocked about 10 seconds before I was going to save. Thankfully I had enough time to grab my camera and get a crappy picture of the monitor before it BSOD'd.
