more sketches

More Sketches (old but never posted)

These are all in the 3-5 minute range again.  I would like to cut that time down, but I'm also happy with how most of these turned out.

More emulations and studies

I think (hope) I'm getting better. some are more successful than others.

A few sketches from this week

These were all 2-5 minutes, which is entirely to long.  I will be practicing more.

another portrait

Another painting.  This one took longer (about an hour) because I couldn't get it to look right, and is a much less successful likeness.  So I am cutting my losses, swallowing my pride and posting it anyway.  I still enjoyed parts of it.

I will be painting more.  I would love to be better at faces.

This was supposed to be a page of portrait sketches, but I liked the way the first sketch turned out, so I painted it.  Now it is a 30ish min speed paint.

I have the same goal of a page tomorrow.  But maybe we'll get a new.

Plane shot Final

This was a great test for what i wanted to accomplish and with that in mind, I am calling it done.  There are still problems with it, but i think the problems will take longer to fix than the shot is worth (i.e. problems with the footage and the model).  All things considered I'm happy with how it turned out, and that it took less time than i thought to complete it.

My next test will include a CG character.  That should be fun.

Warm up Sketches

more warm ups.  pose maniacs and the figure drawing site.  Most of these were drawn on the Windows 8 Surface Pro in Photoshop.  I think i really like the machine and am highly considering buying it.
