A little slower approach this week with some observational studies as well as some weird creatures built off of shapes.
Also, a little bit more work on the dragon.
Ok so part 2 of this post has a lot of stuff that happened over both this past week and a few things that I wanted to just put up because they were ideas to get “out there.” Sometimes when you are creating something, the image that leaps out of your mind either works or it doesn’t really work. Either way the important thing to do is to do it. Later on down the line you never know when your mind will come back to that image, and though it may not work at the time of creation, you use that as a source to create a newer better image. So without further ado…
Feeling out the rough shading. Yes, very rough 😐
Did you ever go to a concert or gathering and no matter what was playing or happening, get an amazing creative vibe? Well I had that opportunity this past weekend as I went to a Death Metal concert that was pretty rad. I had a blast sketching and squinting and sketching some more.
But up first this week is a very fast (maybe 10 minutes) sketch from the dentist office. I would have had more time, but my ride was leaving and I did not want to irritate them so had to jet. I purposely tried to be very loose in this sketch as I know that is something that I need to work on when sketching from life. I can always go back later and render the crap out of it! ;P
Next is said Death Metal event. So much fun and supporting my buddy’s band Incontinence – yes you read that right!
Lastly a bit of robuts and dinozillas mixed in with some wacky vehicle designs.
On the digital front, not much has happened as I was pretty busy with other life matters this past week. Some refinement on a lotus tattoo.
This week brings some quick sketching back into the picture, along with a final of the dragon I have been working on. I am not entirely sure that I like the result, but sometimes it is better to just stop working on something and learn what you need to work on and then go from there onto your next piece.
Yes, one of my weaknesses is perspective. Plain and simple – it is evil. This week we have a quartet of things to put up, with the first being an evil perspective demon rearing it’s ugly head:
Next up is a fun little exercise that I decided to do based upon a very well laid out video by a digital artist named Sycra. I will not go into detail about said video, but it really got me thinking about what I should and should not be doing in my art studies.
Basically, I did a two-fold thing here. First I drew a found object that was in front of me, and then I drew the shape again and tweaked it to be imaginitive.
Next up is an update to my son’s dragon idea, of which I did the line art just a few weeks ago:
And finally, even though I have not put enough time into this one, a slight update:
