Roberto,

First suggestion: start from a dark ground and work up in terms of value. Remember those Anatomy Reviews? Actually look at them. :D :p

This one describes the 3 value shading method I prefer:

Anatomy Review 003: SHADING TUTORIAL AND HUMAN SKULL EXERCISE (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=259291)
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=259291

I suggest filling the background with black, creating three swatches ~ one white, one mid~gray, and one black. When in brush mode, alt+click your canvas and your brush will temporarily become an eyedropper, with which you can sample any color or value on which you click.

I would reduce the opacity and softness of your brushes. Use the Shift + [] keys to alternately soften / harden the brush. Shift + [ makes the brush softer, Shift + ] does the reverse.

Use the [] keys to change the scale of the brush. [ makes the brush smaller, and ] makes the brush larger.

Cheers,

~Rk

The anatomy's a little funky on the model, but I assume there's still work to be done. Nice stylised head/face, though. Post up some wires, too. :)

RobertoOrtiz
04-15-2006, 05:24 PM
To be honest <EXCUSE TIME> the model is a throwaway model that was never intended for high resolution work. Also I know that the proportions are WAYYYY off.


But I will improve it over this weekend.

04-15-2006, 06:45 PM
Roberto,

The first question is, are you using Reference? I've seen you do better human models before, but this one just seems really off, to be honest. ;)

The main thing would be to use Reference I think. I posted some leads on References here:

http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=3452483&postcount=2

That being said, here is a paintover which I hope helps to show some problem areas:

Roberto,

What ever happened to the sculpting class you were going to take? I really think that this would help you to figure out forms when working in 3D.

One thing that might help here is in Photoshop to overlay an Orthographic photograph on top of the rendering ~ try to see where you are off.

I also recommend, if you are going to be doing a lot of characters, joining 3d.sk, where there is a ton of reference to be found. You could even join for just a month at $13.95 and download a ton of reference. (You can download as much as possible as long as you are a member). The nice bit is that they have a ton of front, side, back views that are condusive to 3D artists. You should definitely check them out.

Cheers, :)

Wow! Really lovely drawings! I especially like the heads. They look like conte drawings on bristol board which I loved doing in Foundation year. The basketball player is really nice too, although the ball could use a touch of detail. Its kind of like a wafer or an orangle hole of doom. The 3d model is progressing nicely too. Its a little lumpy right now, and the chest looks pinched on the pectoralis muscles. Keep in mind you want to try to get the muscle to look like they are slightly stretched and contracted (study where they attach, this really helped me!). Also what would really improve the overall structure dramatically is to slightly exagerate (more definition) the bony landmarks of the body. This is includes the epicondials (hehe i remember something from class) which is the forearm bone (humerous) elbow. Also exagerate the bones in the fingers, feet, knees, front of hips, dimples at the back of the waist, and ankels. There are more areas too, but this should improve the overall structure of the model. Just try to keep the transistions from bone to skin subtle, even on an cartoony model too sharp of a change could hurt the model. I hope this helps!

Lovely job on #03, and I think #04 is nice as well with the exception of the too uniform digital highlights. Try using a softer / lower opacity brush for your whites on these, or even redoing them so that they blend more naturally with the traditional piece. :)

Roberto,

To change your brush size, use the shortcuts:

[ for smaller brush, and ] for larger brush.

In PS, Shift + [ makes the brush softer, and Shift + ] makes the brush harder.

I suggest using a softer brush and a lower opacity when creating your highlights. Try 50% opacity and flow for the white highlights you are creating in PS. They are currently looking a bit uniform and therefore too obvious. Try making them as subtle as the underlying drawing.

Cheers,

~RK

These are really turning out great. I think the conte ones are still the strongest entries. Are you using construction lines? What's your process of creating these? The straight on frontal view drawings seem a little off and could probably use more attention to angles of lines and negative space.

Roberto,

A few recommendations are to watch the axes of the eyes with these, and to slow down a bit with the shading. Try looking harder at the forms, and rendering more detail. Really scoop out the darker areas, and fully shade the image with consistent shading. I think when you work thoroughly with traditional media, you learn to slow down and notice more details of the form. Strive less for a finished drawing, and more for analysis when drawing. :)

Cheers,

~RK

Roberto,

Nice job here, I think you might add a layer of black on top and reduce that layer's opacity to perhaps 50%. Then create a new layer and continue to paint. Try using the Grayscale slider in PS, which can be accessed through the Color Palette. Try not to go too light for your pieces.

Cheers,

Nice progress, again I'd recommend throwing a darker layer on top and fiddling with the opacity so that you don't end up with a washed out / too light image. All the forms are nicely suggested but could really sculpted out if you have a full range of values. :)

Cheers,

Hi....Roberto...:thumbsup: :)

You have some really nice head studies going on in here...can see the progress happening ,with
each new one you post. I think you should do a couple of more paintings though..really like the
ones you have done so far...you have a nice feel for color, mood, and a very expressive way
of handleing the brushwork....would be great to see you explore that further....:)

I didn't get a chance to say THANK YOU, before I left the convention in Boston...for the help you provided me with ...registration ect.......SO HERE'S A BIG BELATED THANK YOU FROM ME :thumbsup:
It was a real pleasure to meet you....you have a way of melting the ice really quickly, and made me feel comfortable throughout that little adventure...at the dinner, and at the convention.
A real pleasure being around your sense of humor...:scream: :) ..Hope to meet you again someday..:)

TAKE CARE

Roberto,

Wow, this last is really impressive! :) When you've completed the 50 Portraits, I might recommend trying a more finished / polished version of one or more of the Portraits ~ it might be quite cool to see how far you can push your rendering skills. I think you would have a fantastic result! :)

Cheers,

Hi....Roberto...:thumbsup:

GREAT JOB on those last two.....on the last one, ...you might want to tone down the highlights. My eye is drawn to the white on his forhead, like a magnet, I can't escape it..:scream: :)
You might try throwing a tint of warm golden color over the whole painting, after you have reached the point where you have put your highlights in...this will unify the highlights with the rest of the painting....then pick out just one area, where you will place the brightest of the highlights....rarely a pure white....but more like the lightest value of the surrounding color that it is placed upon.
Looking forward to seeing more of these paintings....getting better with each one....:thumbsup:

TAKE CARE

So a rocking chair or a hammock would also be suitable places to draw for you? I doubt you could use a wacom pen on subway though. That would be really tricky! Excellent rubens study, just a little heavy with the outlining.

Roberto

Great progress throughout this thread.

A few thoughts. Do you check your work in a mirror? It can help to see where the proportions are not correct. Flop your scans. Overlay your reference pieces to see where you need to correct.

Overall comment. In the early sketches your focus appears less unified, details have more importance than mass and overall shape. As a general rule of thumb ALWAYS work masses first, details save till the end. Spend more time getting the construction drawing accurate, measure if necessary. Throughout the entire process keep checking that your masses are correct. You will work faster and use less effort if the shape and proportions are accurate.

Lastly, join a life class with an instructor whose criticism you trust. Drawing from life with a good coach is the only way to generate the knowledge base needed to allow you to use photo reference and produce good work. That's just the way it is.

Just so you know. I'm not talking through my hat. I've been a working pro artist/graphic designer for 39 of my 57 years. I studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Over the years, I join a life class when I feel the need to fine tune my observational skills…it helps to get everything back on track.
