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?

Horse I

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.

Daily Practice

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

later!

 

First practice

Although work has been crazy, I had some time to enjoy the studio.
Here is two fast practice I made. You can see the progress.

The black and white one is from a youtube documentary of a war journalist following a group of soldiers during the Kosovo War. At that point, the soldier was explaining that he had spent his life working in that factory, and now his job was to defend it.

You can see the video here.

The second one is inspired by a drawing I made in a life session several weeks ago. Testing out the colors. Proportions are way off.

Which one do you like?

So far, people seem to prefer the first step of each. humph!

Ho, and here is a drawing I made at work, while waiting for my computer. It’s the famous shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.
