Inktober 2017

In 2017 I decided to join Inktober,
it was great, my daughter was born on the same month, the necessary time to make an ink drawing everyday was definitely not a problem with a new baby on board! It was my best planned idea :)

It did end up working well and I had at least one drawing to show for every day.

 

You can enjoy it here!

 

Worship – 卧

Hi there,
today is a practice that got carried overboard, added some colors, brought in a quick render to help with the pose, photobashed a little bit, etc…. the whole 9 yards.

In the end the most fun to draw was the relief on the tomb, its from a reference obviously but I modified it to fit the narrative.

I keep going into this very soft lighting schemes, with no crazy contrasts. Might be a good sign, I used to blow out my values so large everything was white OR black. Now its the opposite! I’ll have to reajust. still.

ho well

see ya!

Painted nude

Hey,

some more serious practice this time,

from an black and white underpainting to full color, I’m trying to keep the painterly effect as strong as possible. i really liked punching those colors  that only makes real sense in a painting. Not perfect, still looks bad in my eyes, but I can see some progress, so I am pretty happy about that one in the end.

What do you think?

Tonal practice

Hey there,

some tonal practices from various movies. Very simple and quick but good way to get the rust off I think.

Will have to keep on going if i want to get my values right

Can’t wait to talk to you guys about the project we are working on right now, it is pretty exciting! :)

cheers!
