Realllly late replies to my personal post:
Sorry guys, I won’t be on for a few days at least. Seems like health issues are kicking my butt again. I’m on meds and I need sleep, lots of sleep, and I can’t really look at screens because my eyes have become very sensitive to light. I’ll be online* (but not on tumblr) maybe for an hour or two a day because I signed up for free online class that I’ve been looking forward to for months.
Otherwise, see you lovely people in a…not sure, but maybe the end of the week.
Oh, smart using liquify! It looks great! I bet one learns a lot by adjusting what one’s drawn too, tbh. (Also, very few ppl have symmetrical features.) ^^
Thanks! Very much! Yeah, a friend told me I should try perspective mirroring, which I plan to do (once my eyes stop hurting lol)! And I learned about liquify through this tutorial: HERE! I’m not that clever to figure it on my own.
The only thing I really worry about is skewing or slanting, I don’t my want images to look warped or weird. I just want them solid, in form and structure. So more practice, practice, practice! :D
PSHAW the features on the pencil drawing look a bit skewed, but otherwise perfectly fine. And that is some reeeally nice coloring you got going on there.
Thank you! Really, really thank you! Yeah, I need to practice symmetry so that my penicls aren’t so skewed!
It’s funny, I’m more confident in my coloring than I am in pencil/line work and I guess it shows! Digital painting is utterly fabulous and the best awesome sauce!
Thanks again! ;)
I’ve been practicing my drawing, too. Particularly anatomy and learning how to do gesture drawings and sketches. The best way to learn to draw better is to study from life — or at least photo references. I’m using this: http://artists.pixelovely.com
Thank you so much for the link! And yup, I’m been using stock photos from DA for photo references, but ofc this face was freehand, which I do to check my progress!
Gesture drawing is really fun! Idk, drawing is fun! It’s frustrating but I’m not down or anything. I’m given up on giving up! XD I just like to complain! ;)
Good Luck on your drawing! May the graphite be with you!
