I like the attention to detail in this, and the contrasts are working well!  :D
Something about this bugs me though, but I can't put my finger on it... the banana and the pepper feel flat for some reason?

Thanks :) I know what you mean 'bout the flatness, it's really bright & high sat in the lights (the form shadows too, with all the reflected light) and I was having problems pining down any kind of modelling there. I was actually pretty surprised at the lack of contrast in places. I'll give it another pass and maybe try adjusting stuff as a whole.

On detail: you've been hoodwinked! I was pretty lax with the banana spots cos no-one would know the difference :lol:

Ryu: I don't think I'll be able to use the same stuff again in natural light; I was already skipping a few wrinkles on my pepper while painting (a couple days ago) and there's far more most interesting subjects to be had, I think. Next time hopefully! Moonlight would definitely be a novel challenge.

You could always swap with new fruits? I thought that would be one benefit of the line art and separate layers. But i can also understand it not feeling right if you're going for a strict life study.

I made a little video of me taking  a really old sketch ( maybe 6 years?) and slapping some stuff onto it in photoshop:

Here are my English notes.


Full Size (It is pretty large and still crud quality, scanner is a broke): http://i.imgur.com/74kp0t7.jpg
The head could use some major work but I liked how the torso and stomach area turned out.

Learning me some ZBrush

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Hey all.

First post, but, I've actually been here before with another account I don't even remember the name from. Still, this place is still as amazing as I remember it; the amounts of quality art here as well as the pixels is lovely. I mean, just look at the stuff on this thread. Can't even begin to describe it. You guys rock.  :y:

(The pixel art section seems a little on the decline, quality wise, but it may just be me..)

Feels good to be here.



Let me not forget this wip, too



Im improvising on it, background coming, but im not sure what yet
All advice is welcome as always.

Started dabbling with oil colors this year. Both are WIP, left one first, right one second. (Note to self: On your third painting make a drawing first and make a plan on how to paint it. :P )

Notable observation: Whatever amount of oil color you think you need to take from the tube to paint an area, take less, far less than that amount.

Working on some traditional animation.  This is my first true attempt at this so feedback is appreciated.  This will eventually be cut up into pieces to be experimented with in Spriter, but for now it's pretty traditional.  The upper body asymmetry doesn't quite make sense yet as he will be holding a gun with both hands in the final.

Only thing that springs up to me immediately is that the far shoulder has a huge movement trajectory while the foreground shoulder is pretty contained.

I didn't really put much thought/planning into the positioning of the back arm, so it doesn't surprise me if it's a bit off.  I'll see if it makes sense with the gun and adjust accordingly if it's too much, though I am still going for somewhat exaggerated movement

Edit:
Slight update with the gun.  Too much?
