yup yup yup
Probably going to go back and redo some areas, but I’m letting her rest for now.
Originally it started out as practice, and then it became this awkward version of PWI’s Tideborn assassin class.
There’s a lot of things I’m not satisfied with, like the warped anatomy going on all over her body, sloppy painting in some parts, etc.
But it was a nice practice I guess.
50 VALUE/COMPOSITION STUDIES // WEEK FIVE
From Noah Bradley’s 12 week summer thingy. I did the first 12 or so on Friday, and then I lost a few days due to camping. Beasted out the last 341232423423 when I came back.
My eyes are dying from squinting so much and trying to unify different values together. Better viewed SMALL. hahaha…..
now for 50 (lol not) color studies
Quick LOTR studies today.
I got a rare stroke of genius and found out that searching up screenshots on google images would be much more efficient than going through the actual movie. That took me a while to figure out.
NOT REALLY 100 VALUE CUBES / / WEEK FOUR
AP EXAMS ARE OVER! (but I only had one, so it’s not a big deal…)
I wasn’t able to hit 100 because the smell of the markers made my head hurt. I didn’t even study much for my exams, so I can’t use that as an excuse anymore.
At first using the markers was pretty hard, but then it kind of got easier…double coating makes me feel like I’m wasting ink. Re-learned the importance of sharp edges and relative value.
I was watching one of Anthony Jones’s livestreams, and I decided to try out his method for starting a painting.
This is extremely close/similar to one of his paintings (pretty much another version of his), because I was practicing and trying to see his processes. Even the placement of the light/colors are pretty much the same, except mine is “cool” and his is “warm” haha…
100 MAMMALS / / WEEK THREE
These took quite a bit of time, I hardly did any art this week besides these animals…
I attempted to use some images off of google to do a amateur/awkward kind of perspective drawing. Alternated perspective animals with normal drawings.
Halfway through I started getting bored of the mammal limit, which is kind of unreasonable since there are so many possible mammals to draw from. Also, I’m sorry for the horrible quality of these pictures; I took them with my phone because my scanner is kind of ehh right now.
Sargent study, 1.5 hr. I love his colors! Learned some subtle differences between light/shadow colors. This is the first time I’ve actually used the soft round brush; I’ve always had this unreasonable aversion to those.
His paintings are so beautiful, this woman seems like she’s supposed to be a dancer, but she looks like she’s bashing on someone’s fashion sense while doing morning exercises.
Leon: The Professional (1994)
11 year old Natalie Portman. Didn’t really do her justice, but learned about lighting and color.
Playing around with brushes. I don’t really know what I was trying to achieve with this. Learned some stuff on focus and contrast, I guess.
Otherwise it’s pretty messy and awkward.
100 ANATOMY SKETCHES // WEEK TWO
I didn’t really plan this week out that well, so I just resorted to trying to get through my anatomy textbook. Got pretty familiar with the back and torso muscles, but the arms/legs were much more complex.
100 FACES // WEEK ONE
Trying out skmop’s 100 things-per-week exercise. Learned how to (kind of) pick out the most important parts of a face, and to try not to focus too much on drawing just one part.
I’m not satisfied yet though.
