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.
wanted to break off from the B&W then moving on to the color, so I started without model in colors directly. I feel like the overal quality suffered a bit, but it was an interesting exercise!
Somehow inspired by one of Hot Chip album cover
a little practice drawing male body (from a sculpture by Javier Marin, that guy is so god-damned good!)
Added some graphic design to it because why not, it’s more interesting that way
Some more quickpainting for you guys,
I’m keeping on going with the horsey! Added some environment so that I can practice that too
I feel horses are a good way to practice grey tones. The muscles give a similar feeling to humans, but still, its anatomy is more forgiving than drawing a nude. Even though it’s not much of a problem with traditional media, I’m not to the point where drawing a nude on the computer is comfortable, I’ll proceed by small steps. Shades first.
So I did this as a practice and decided to push it a little bit.
Since I started working in the new company, I’ve been working daily on my digital art before I can get some time for oil painting: now that I’m in China, I don’t have a studio anymore.
I’ll get my colors and shadings in order before putting it into traditional medias. So here is some of the showable drawings made in the last days.
The rest of the team are all amazing digital artists, so its inspiring Gotta get my skills up to par.
I’ll give the originals credits:
- original drawing by O O Joo (check on artstation)
- sculpture by Fred Fichet
- Original oil painting by Nicola Samori
I don’t often paint on the computer,
but it’s probably time I start.
