More hair practice. It was a more of a practice of frustration. I will try again in the future. Sorry for the boring painting. I will do something interesting tomorrow.

Vandal (Daily Doodle)

vandal-10-19-v2

Daily Doodle for Sunday. This is a Elite..er I mean this is a Vandal. One of the enemies in Destiny. Vandals are one of the most common enemies in the game. You shoot allot of them. You could mock him by calling him 4 eyes and he wouldn’t even be offended. I even shoot them in my dreams. This was good practice because I haven’t drawn futuristic armor before.  I will probably sketch the other enemy races in the future. Reference was official promotional shots for the game.

Color Study (Gerome – Arab Caravan)

This was a hard study. Not the actual painting BUT the fact that my laptop broke and I had to do most of this on a iPad. Thankfully I was able to finish this on a friend’s computer but he didn’t have Photoshop on it so I used a little paint program called myPaint. It took a little adapting as it didn’t have nearly the same amount of customization as Photoshop brushes. But I like it. myPaint has a infinite canvas, a strange thing for a raster painting program to have.

The coolest thing I have learned from these studies so far is that the painters never use pure black or white in the shadows or highlights. Instead the painter will use a complementary color or a grey tone. there will always be some bounce (or fill) light in the shadow that is the sky’s color or of  a close by object.

Color Studies (Color Workshop)

Sorry I haven’t posted anything for a couple of weeks. I am so busy I am loosing my mind. :O

Color studies I have done for a online Color Class. The Waterhouse study (my first one) is rather lame but I am somewhat pleased with the improvement I made with the Bougereau Study. I started to see color better.  I had a third one finished but my laptop broke and I have to start that one over 😦 Two down, four to go.

Art Study 1- Dragon breathing fire

dragon art study

I’m a bit burned out with drawing still life. I will be doing some quick studies/copies of artists that I admire and paintings I find cool. Feel free to give feedback.  40 minutes

Mistakes that I made: Left leg to thick, leg is too small, snout is either too long or needed to be cover by the flame. Highlight on neck needs to be stronger. Forgot to draw background

Original painting is copyrighted by a artist who’s signature is too hard to read.

Still Life 7 – Light up the night

This still life was more of a challenge for me. It was a oddly shaped flash light. I didn’t set up the still life in my studio, so there is no fill lighting and whatnots. It just painted it on my friend’s kitchen table. Rendering the reflectivity in the glass was fun, but I didn’t get it a 100%, I will try another glass study such as this in the future. I spent about a hour painting this. I painted this from scratch in Photoshop using a wacom tablet.
