Learning art! 👐
An attempt at replicating this landscape!! Landscapes & painting them are a super weak spot for me
I think a big mistake for this one was that I used a hard chunky brush (I used it to sketch, but it carried over to the final thing, whops) for everything and then used a soft cloud brush for the clouds. Also, I felt like the painting process or at least the feeling of the whole study feels more like markers rather than painting, so I'm trying to wrap my head around that. :0 Also, the details of a landscape always get to me. Hopefully I can approach it differently tomorrow!
Spent most of the day trying to get this study of a mountain & rock texture right, wow it didn't come out so good, but it looks pretty ok from afar. (I painted with the canvas super zoomed out) More practice tomorrow!
Also, here's a WIP head for the April head challenge! Not sure if I'll stick too closely to the guidelines since portraits aren't exactly what I want to work on right now, but I'll try to get one good portrait out a few times a week!
Practiced lighting today w/ just 2 values! Meet ice-cream mech, a piece of machinery with a design that makes no sense
It's hard to tell what it is because of bad lighting choice & the way I lit it, but I might practice other angles of light with the same drawing soon so it's easier to see what's going on. I learned a lot from this drawing!
Happy April everyone!
I don't feel too great today. But I did do a cool portrait! It's not very noticeable but this my first digital & person thing that uses the things I learned so far about light, shadow & rendering
This is for Mithrilda's April Drawing Challenge. If you're interested in drawing heads along with some other people, I think you'd enjoy it too!
Some studies for today. These are my first! Studying from some photos & applying it to my own lil sketches to test if it'd work. Fun art practice, I think anyone could benefit from this kind of exercise!!
Back to today's submission, here is your generic mountains and sky :D Clouds are fun to draw, but I've never made a realistic cloud before
Today's things! More ctrl+paint exercises & my first value study!
Another exercise for ctrl+paint! The right halves for each shape are mine, and the left are the originals! Some were pretty tricky, and not all are too accurate, but this one was a fun exercise!
Didn't do too much today, and most likely won't do much tomorrow either because of some other things. Hopefully by the 27th/28th I'll be have my semi-regular workload/routine again. :D
Hard to tell but they're having lunch too. Egg monster has a little sandwich on the right and the strangely posed stickman is holding a juice box :D
More ugly imagined things coming soon!
