ART Portraiture practice (mainly)

Discussion in 'SHOWCASING' started by Fiona, Mar 8, 2014.

  1. Before the images start; I consider a few of these to be failures - either they don't resemble who they're meant to or I just don't like how I ended up using the materials - but I figure I might as well post them for feedback as keep them to myself and just glower at them, and they may not be as terribly horrific as I think. The life drawing images I'm relatively happy with, as with the second two portraits.

  2. Lovely Mew, These sketches are wonderful, sure they may not look like those you intended but your form, style and shading, speak volumes. I especially love the last two. Great anatomy work, I can't wait to see more.
     
  3. So I figured I might as well update this, since I'm aware my DA is kinda crap xD

    ALL the images (open)

    As you may be able to tell, I've been trying to figure out how to use a graphics tablet. I think I'm making decent progress, so far. Been about a month of consistent use?

  4. Your pencil work is lovely as ever. Your digital coloring is still a bit rough, especially when defining edges. The highlighting and shading of skin areas is awesome though, you're doing a great job with that.

    What program are you using to color?
     
  5. Thanks, Ozzie ^^ I'm currently using Paint Tool Sai for pretty much everything I do on the computer. I'm really not as steady-handed as I'd like yet with my tablet, not sure if that'd be helped by working in larger scale or not or if it's just gonna have to be a learned thing. There's a lot of fudging happens as of right now though.
     
  6. Yeah, I thought that looked like Sai. If you want to try another free program, Paint.NET is another alternative that I find a little more user-friendly (but that's just a personal thing).

    Tablets are something you just have to get used to as far as steadiness and pressure and etc. Practice makes perfect there. I've used both a medium and a mini tablet and didn't really notice a difference other than my hand cramping faster on the mini.
