color and value study

Now that I stop and look at it, I notice the flaws everywhere. Anyways, I used a flatbrush at 50% opacity and 50% flow and sloppily color picked. The brush settings helped for picking the middle value between two values. I might try this again with a different brush.

Undead Shaco Fanart

I need to work on my fabric and hands. And maybe less ugly weaponry.

Undead Jester Update

This might turn into some LoL fanart :D. I darkened the whole image a lot. To where the darkest value was just a smidgen above black. Then I built up from there. I used a hard round brush, 100% opacity and 100% flow.

Tackling Burne Hogarth

Burne Hogarth, challenge excepted!

I like the idea of starting with the torso and hips. I like throwing down the torso and fitting the hips. (forming the bent bean/pillow effect). I like the awkward position he puts the human form in. Normally hidden behind clothing, Hogarth helps show you the form beneath. He does't get explicit with the bone and muscle underneath, but instead shows you the form created and how it sits in deep space.

While replicating the images in the book I like to see if I can get it close to his version. Once I've achieved that, I like to do it again with modified parts. I really enjoy his perception of the human form.

High as an elephant.

might finish, might not!

chow update

I approached this like a sculpture. I pretended I had a chunk of clay in front of me and just carved away with the different values. This has been an eye opening experience in my digital painting life and I'm not even done.
