Sketch-dump from today! A lot of stuff practiced! I’ll be going over the robo-bean a lot more and anatomy landmarks as well. Maybe prolly tomorrow.
Also! This puts me over 100 sketches for 2014! I know that’s prolly nothing compared to more serious people, a seriousness I need to emulate! But this is a big deal to me! I’ve never drawn this much in a year!
Just another sketch dump. That being said, I’m now over 90 sketches for the year. I don’t know how many I’ve done previous per year, but I’m glad.
That realism piece isn’t finished yet, still. Got a lot of work to do with the shading, still looks too dark to me. Then there’s some terrible Dark Souls stuff, some really bad RT LP stuff, some pencil practice to imitate hair, and two pages of study for the Loomis method for drawing heads. Going to do a lot more of those, but I want to finish that first picture at the moment.
Story or comic (when I reach a point to feel comfortable doing that) idea: Wizard traveling with his pet cat.
The tabby cat begins to focus on the wizard’s staff as they walk through the rocky terrain. Randolph a white blur out of the corner of his eye but keeps his pace. He…
Here’s today’s progress. First picture is the original/reference. Next is just the start of the guide, I used her mouth as my base measurement and went from there. Then I filled in the full grid around 8:30ish (central), an hour later lead to the second drawing. An hour after that is the last one, where I corrected any mistakes/proportion issues/poor measurements. I consider this to be about the half-way point, but it’s prolly closer to being done than that. I just need more practice with shading. Here’s the warm-up attempt if anyone wants to see that POS from this afternoon.
A lot of it looks very bland and flat now and well, it is. But I’ll focus on the eyes next, then shading, hair last, then final touches. I might do some more tonight, but I think this is a project I’ll finish tomorrow or later.
Ehhhh some really crappy stuff. Not really happy with that last piece, but I just eyed for practice. I’m going to draw it again with pencils and proper measuring.
Today’s doodles, drawn from references. Some lips study, need more of that.
This week’s sketch dump! I didn’t want to go full detail on that last one with Sif because I’d shade the entire sky. Just didn’t want to smudge the other pages. But I think I want to redraw it in photoshop in the future.
I don’t know why I signed this, lol.
I was browsing reddit and the daily draw suggestion was Demons that Haunt You. I remembered this guy instantly from a dream I had a while back. I remember him chasing me through a dark empty house, it was just wall frames. He grabbed me on the shoulder and tried to dive the blade into my other shoulder. I grabbed his hand and the shock of how cold he was woke me up.
It’s very sloppy and I did it in maybe 20 minutes.
Edit: JPG in sai looks like shit at first. Good thing I can read garbled text.
