Trying a technique of using a marker to make a random shape and then trying to find a ship design in the silhouette. It's a lot of fun!

i liked it so i painted it up. Used more ref than i have before and took my time to get it just how i wanted. im pleased and i feel like its another nudge up the progress bar.

Hello, guess what?...another beastie! yeh i just can’t help myself. i should really be trying to widen my vocabulary but monsters keep getting in the way. They’re much to fun to paint!
Anyway there is one of those 2D drawing jam things going on at cghub http://cghub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12208 and the theme is a hell hound. this is more of a concept type piece but i think the comp requires an illustration so i think i'll use the same creature in more of a scene based scenario. i might try some variations with it too.
i might just use the pose from top left as i think its kinda scary.

I think i'm moving in the right direction with my environment practice. i probably should be doing some studies from life but hey ho. some of these were successful, some weren't. probably going to work in to some of the better ones. make them larger and add some colour.

Haha, so finally got around to doing another study today, used a great photo from link.
i saw the image and thought i have to study this, its awesome, so much going on in the pose.
i pushed the head and hair for my own enjoyment and experimentation needs. i made her look a little happier made her hair fuller.

Hers something a little different from me, ive been experimenting with strong colour and simple shapes. Trying to break things down to the basic elements. These can be really quick to do and are very rewarding. They could also be a good way to work out lighting for a more detailed piece.

i have stacks of these at work all A3 paper that i have slipped under my keyboard for times of rest from animation. heres a couple of sketches i did at work on friday, trying out some of that retro kinda look. i use it as my sketchbook really, i find it the best way to get sketchbook work done. i think i'll work in to the little kid sketch and maybe do a colour study for him. i may even make him in 3D
