A simple lighting and camera test.
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.
My second attempt at a concept art scene. This time some bubbly mech machine. I relied on heavily on three point perspective on this one. I mess up a little on the shadows and my mech is a bit too simple but I’m pleased its a dramatic picture and tells some sort of story. The chiaroscuro isn’t too bad either. I got a way to go.
