Gesture Studies - I tried to learn more about distortion and foreshortening
30 min lay-in - from ref
I am starting a new painting, which will be in the style of those royal paintings. I took a painting of Louis XVI as the main inspiration. This time I started by sorting out the main tonal masses before I layed down color. Next will be color temperature changes and then materials. I am kinda hesitant to start, maybe because I don't want to mess it up. Which is stupid of course, since it is digital, but anyways. I sure it will be a blast to paint this.
A study for the "Hunger" - painting...
...which I am calling done now! I know there are 2 conflicting focal-points in it, but for now I just leave 'em there.
some still lifes
A Sam Nielson study (http://artsammich.blogspot.de/) - he is awesome!
I am trying to get the feeling of the study above into these characters. They are done for the game I am working on. Still WIP, some are not finally rendered.
This is a 2 h sketch that is actually more like 4 studies of 4 different photo-refs mixed into one (weak) design :D was fun though!
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
