About the Character Every Day Projects
I will be frank, my costume designs need some focus, and I’m extremely bored with drawing stationary poses. So I decided to practice every day a character design. I found plenty of free stock images on Deviant Art provided by some very generous photographers.
I will be using these as reference when I draw. Sometimes I will do my best to copy that image, sometimes I will use the photos as a springboard for my own designs yet keeping some elements that where in the original, and sometimes I will just use the model’s pose/gesture and abandon every thing else.
What I pick depends on my confidence and my mood. A majority of the characters will be drawn using a drawing tablet similar to a cintiq. If I get brave I might use oils for some characters later in the game.
I will spend two days on each character. The amount of time spent on them will depend on my schedule and how bored I get with the painting. So every two days (excluding weekends)
Here is the first character. It wont win any awards but its a good start. This is a steampunk lady. The ref photo I based my drawing on is by Jagged Eye at deviant art. 2 hours. I will put a link when I find it again. Crits welcome.
