Just putting up a quick update about the most recent life drawings I did at Syn Studio. I made the necessary change from pencil over to a marker, so that I would have bolder lines without having to ink over the drawings after. Same medium & principal. This was quite the difficult sessions because drawing two people intertwined is...well, twice the challenge.
These two are sort of a set. Check out the album for more. I'm interested in selling these as originals, and they are already up in the Society6 store. Updates on that later.
Recently, I completed my Digital Painting class with Dhamindra Jeevan at Syn Studio. I received a certificate for the course and left with this new & awesome portfolio piece! I am so happy with how much my lighting has improved and all the new techniques I learned for drawing digitally.
Now to design some human characters, so maybe one day a video game company believes I can do this?
Here is also the same beach girl portrait, but with colour added. I've also added all these to my STORE!, so check it out under BUY. I should really stay on top of my news - but hey guys, follow me on twitter so you can get instant updates on any deals in my store. You just missed the FREE SHIPPING weekend, sorry.
Let's start with re-posting about my life drawings I inked & cleaned up. I wrote about this already, but I had a server problem and the news post disappeared. So to recap quickly: These are life drawings I did at Syn Studio during a life drawing workshop. I challenged myself by using watercolours and trying to work as fast as possible. I've never done that before in the 5 or so years I've been doing life drawing, and it was definitely difficult. See the 2013 Traditional Mediums album for more.
Here's probably my first solid piece of digital art for this year! I'm actually quite happy with how this turned out and didn't really expect to have anything more than a sketch from doing a portrait value study. For this image, I used a photograph provided on Reddit Gets Drawn, where people upload photos in hope an artists draws a portrait from them.
As part of the process, I recorded a speedpaint video and actively updated my livestream. Here is the video and I hope to make more of these in future. Please share!
