i got some new books yesterday, the book of hundred hands and drawing the draped figure by george bridgman and figure drawing by anthony ryder. i started reading the ryder book and its just amazing, i really love it, the method somehow suits me much more than the one of loomis or such by counting heads. i tried to apply the enveloping and getting the the blocking down to the hands i did after the bridgeman book

Toll! Willkommst du zur Forum Anatomie ^^... endlich!

Deiner Handen machen fortlaufende verbesserung! (grammatisch...ouch!)

Either way, you're improving at top speed, britta! Weitergehen! :applause:

Yay Britta! Love the OFDW work; very nice values and form. The hand studies are looking good, though you seem to be having some trouble with the thumbs in some of them. Great stuff! :)

Hey Llynna,

Great to see your Anatomy Thread up and going! No one can resist the power of the Clippy, eh? ;)

It's cool, I've never seen some of your OFDW pieces ~ apparently you never posted them. :D I like Ryder's method very much, I was never very good at counting heads, either. ;)

Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Cheers, :)

Wow, never saw this thread. Happy to have seen it now. Great ones from ofdw, hands are good, only some of them have broken fingers :D The new figures re totaly amazing! Are they going to be colorised? I see that you've written that the frst one is finished, but I'm just curious, I really like them.

Llynna,

Your first sketch in particular is gorgeous! :thumbsup: It's great to see your pencil work, you really have a facility for it, and I hope you push it further. Hoping to see some more pieces in this fashion! :bounce:

Cheers, :)

Gorgeous pencil work. That figure 1 turned out so nice. If you lightly shade the background, the figure will even jump out more. Good to see you start up this anatomy thread honey! :thumbsup: Keep em coming.

That first one is really a lovely piece :) I hope we get to see a few of the steps in the production of the second one.

Llynna
06-17-2006, 03:34 PM
@raz: welcome over to the thread^^. as you can see im stilla t the beginning with it. i will definetly post more hand studies, as i really need to do them. maybe some today when i can find some time.

The first drawing is final for this technique, but i will go buy a canvas some time soon and paint it in traditional media aka oil to give it to my parents. THe second one will stay black and white cause i think it will fit the task best or we will see.

@becca: thank you :). i will try to push it further cause its really massive fun to render in pencil, cant belive i forgot how much^^.

@the glog: thank you for your kind words :) yes, some of the hands are ah well several times broken and not healed again neatly or so ;P. the overshapdness is somewhat the result of reading and using burne hogarths great anatomy book as reference. i somehwat find that through overhsaping one body part you get the proportions and little quirks best.

@ego: :D :D :D yes, i finally did and theresa made me open my own thread :) and who can resist our charming clippy ;). i wanted to shade it lightly but couldnt work up the courage cause i thought i might mess uo with it.

@kary: if you are interested, i can provide wip pictures of the first one too. i will put them together today and post them along with an update on the second.

Llynna,

It's great to see the WIP of your Calla piece! :) I think it will make a lovely painting, and I hope you will save WIP images of that as well. :) How do you plan to approach the painting?

Cheers,

06-19-2006, 05:24 PM
at first i need to go and buy a canvas, then i will transfer it via some of these charcoil papers, thats not cheating isnt it? to trace your owm sketch? after that some mild color laydown in a middle range color and then i will try to just get it done. i know it will be hard to do but hey^^. of course i will provide some wips :)

so here is another update on the angel drawing.

Nope, transferring your own drawing isn't cheating. :) Your drawing is looking great! What are your plans for the background, I wonder? :)

Hi.....Llynna ...:)

GREAT to see your thread in here ....:thumbsup:

BEAUTIFUL rendering going on in that angel.....very tight,...a lot of work, but the results are
for sure worth it....:applause:
I also really like the expression on the flower fairies face...the line and your technique is GREAT
Are you going to do that angel in oils....would be great....just curious.

@becca: some people can be so fishy about this cheating thing......... ah well not here but on a german forum i know, its real scary. hm the background, dont know yet, since the setting of the rpg is one of a neo gothic church thingie, mabye som of these things. but dont know.............

@glen: great to see you around here :) and i really appreciate your support :D. youre right, rendering a full thing in pencil is quite a lot of work, but tis also massive fun. i dont think i will do the angel in oil, black and white is suitible for it.

here is an update

Hiya Britta,

I think the sternocleidomastoid muscle (http://www.exrx.net/Muscles/Sternocleidomastoid.html) looks a bit off in your image, but it's good to see this new pencil sketch! Keep going with these, I think that they will ultimately help your paintings tremendously! :)

ok, update time

some head studies, or rather nose studies from the head challenge. i just didnt feel like doing the whole heads somehow.... and pencil wouldnt work today, dont know why.

im working on a painting of a character i made up a long time ago alongside with a fantasy world and her story which is not really a happy happy ending one.

I love that concept for the mermaid Britta, so different from the standard look. I think you're gonna have to be careful with how the rocks* 'cup' her, with her lower torso placed like that it'd be very easy for her to slide off.

Funny how the blue lines running up the body seem threatening, and then not seeing how they connect to the face makes it worse -- quite cool :)

*Looks like rocks in the concept, if it's a beach I'm having trouble reading it ;)

Llynna,

Try if you can to draw the whole head for the Portraits thread, as it actually makes the job of getting proportions right easier. :) Really love the hand studies, I think you and Bridgeman really connect. :) You always invest a lot of good emotion into your drawings, and I think that once you start to really master the tricks of getting form to read, as with your Bridgeman studies, your work will really have a great impact.

Cheers,

some last updates for today, im tired now.

ok heres the finished lineart of a cd cover im doing for a friend of mine whos got an industrial band. im fond of the lineart but not of the try in coloring it in analog things. the paper broke on me halfway, its really sensitive about pressure..... its my first time working with that kind ov grainy tinted paper, so i will just keep experimenting with it.

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/Llynna/kaiserschnitt3.jpg

and the coloring, but ive got the feeling that i screwed up, so i think i will do it digitally.........

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/Llynna/kaiserschnitt5.jpg

oh yea and the digital piece that im workin on.

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/Llynna/queen10.jpg

by the way, no reference used for both pics, despite my old cam to get the perspektive of the mask.


@kary: yea its rocks no sand, and youre right about her sliding, thats a big problem and i aimed for a different look, not this beautiful innocent mermaid kinda thing.........

@becca: yes teach, i will be a good girl and draw whole heads next time, maybe just think of it as a nose excercise.

@abyss: hey thanks^^. as long as you dont begin to sing........ bochum ich komm aus dir, all is going well ;)

Rebeccak
07-10-2006, 06:35 AM
Llynna,

LOL, nose exercise it is, then. ;)

I think your drawings / paintings are becoming a lot stronger / more confident ~ certainly your linework seems less hesitant and searching, that's a good sign. :) Looking forward to seeing you developing these pieces, I think you do best where there is a clearly defined goal for a piece, such as the work that you are doing for your friend. :)

Cheers,

07-16-2006, 05:41 AM
thanks becca :) that does mean a lot to me :)

ok first of all its 6:30 am, im dead tired on red bull and adrenalin, so dont mind if my writings kinda weird.

after doing some doodling with charcoal today i began paintin digital again at like 3 o clock in the night and i think i made ssome massive breakthrough. hah i got like an adrenaline shock from painting and i realized what is boring myself in all my wips. they were all lacking some point of me, and where just reproductions of thoughts of others somehow. difficult to explain.......... anyway ive been practising skin tones the last few days and been thinking about some approaches on digital painting and smoothing cause i always tended to desaturate all colors while smoothing, so they lost all vibrancy and got greyish.

ok to cut long things short, after much thinking and more experimenting i came to this update of ice queen. i mean it was kinda boring before, ok blue is associated with ice, but why, i mean all kinda ice fairies or such are always painted the same, kinda white to blueish.... so all kinda alike. that bored me....... im trying to go for an icy look even with implimenting warm colors, get good complimentary contrasts to enhance the feeling and by doing that getting the focal point of the painting enhanced not only by the composition but also through terms of color use.

I think your stuff is looking great ~ I think you're the kind of person who would really bloom if you took some live figure drawing classes. :) Would love to see some charcoal pencil drawings from you ~ you ought to check out the Gesture DVD from Vilppu (http://www.vilppustudio.com/).

i know im a bad person....... no update in such a long time but it was way to hot for drawing here.........

i began this drawing yesterday evening as a life drawing sketch of a friend of mine in my bound sketchbook. took that as reference for the new drawing on good paper and must admit its so much fun doing portriats and stuff with pencil. so far its hmmm 6 hours work or so.

@razz: hehe yea, but i like twisted stuff, i like it real much, twisted cloth, twisted music and twisted drawings ;P. and if you want to draw then just draw grap a pencil and just do. i havent worked with pencil till 4 month too but now im enjoying it so much :D its so great.

@intervain: hey thank you very much for stepping in my little thread here :D yea, i need to do taht cd cover art in a finished drawing too, the other version i cant show you cause well you know not until the cds out ;)

Most likely the second, since she has a pimp stick. Although I think a different color could be used for the outlines or even better, shading.

Llynna
08-04-2006, 08:03 PM
oh yea dont mind the outlines and the plastic look its only a sketch so far and of course shje will be properly shaded without outlines at all.

currently im thinking about doing her full figure gonna sketch that now with some puppets lying around her hmmmmmmmmmm.

hehe yea womball i like the stick too. pimp stick sounds real funny hehe. is that like pimp my ride^^, pimp my stick lol :bounce:

Pimps tend to wear big hats, have teeth grills, have pimp sticks. And they like 70's platform shoes for some reason.

Llynna
08-04-2006, 08:13 PM
so austin powers is a pimp? haha, hadnt known what a pimp is ;)

gonna do the rest of it on paper since all my only digital stuff tends to be boring i want her more screwed and more dark and more mad. we will see.....gonna watch donnie darko dvd while doing that, mostly that really helps with more mad and more screwed ;)

Womball
08-04-2006, 08:19 PM
He isn't. They are actually disgusting people, but they look funny. It is appropiate for the puppetmaster thing you are going for. They tend to control people.

08-04-2006, 08:23 PM
oh..... i totally got it wrong then..... i thought of funny 70s people in a alice in wonderland style and not of that.

hm here in germany the tend to wear golden neglaces, real ugly ones, have short slimy hair and sunglasses.

Womball
08-04-2006, 08:28 PM
Well they kind of are. If you could manage to draw one that made them look pathetic and likeable at the same time, than you would have drawn quite a piece! But they do control people, and this goes with your theme. So the stick works beautifully. ;-)

razz
08-04-2006, 10:36 PM
I vote for the second one! Because she looks more relaxed in that pose. In the first image the pose doesn't look like it would be comfortable, but in the second one it does look like it. Maybe she would look good if her clothes would be black and lit by a red light. Just a suggestion, it's your decision. In fact, I don't even how it would look, just trying to imagine. Keep up with the twisted stuff!! :bounce:

Intervain
08-04-2006, 10:48 PM
yeah I agree definitely the second one! I'd also pull that hat a tad back because her head looks a bit ill proportioned with it in that position and the whole between the hat and the hair on top... cool idea though:thumbsup: more please...

Llynna
08-04-2006, 11:58 PM
thanks for all the support :)

im doing a big sketch in my sketchbook now of the second one, it is more comfortable after all cause the back is bended so much. also need to think of a nice pose for the puppet.

@womball: thats a good point, so the pimp stick is a good symbol for her^^.

@razz: the cloth wont be all so bright red in the end but not all black, all black cloth are so boring to draw so much i love to wear them in the real life. i want her to be lit by a blue light in the red cloth, maybe i make it latex but dont know really.

@intervain: agreed about the hat, gonna do something about it, somehow it seemed like a good idea to give her only a half hat, dont know really why, we will see. mostly i get even more screwed ideas while working traditional dont know why.

decided to give her a clowns face, i really hate clowns, most scary things on earth along with porcelaine puppets. *brrrrrrrrrrrrr*

You know, try using the airbrush/a really soft brush with FULL opacity to put down the base colors everywhere, then use progressively harder brushes to put in the details and sharpen edges. Just a thought- with the way you work, you may find it useful.

Lynna, it's great to see the new pieces ~ I think you really show a confidence with traditional pencil that is really quite cool to see. I actually really liked the more unfinished version of this piece, it might be interesting for you to explore doing heavily detailed faces and leaving some of the rest of the drawing incomplete.

Artists like Degas frequently do this to great effect:

Heya Lynna,

Here are the paintovers you requested - I think if you didn't want to go this far, you could just add more substance to the waist so that it evens out the size of the legs a bit. :)

Hi....Llynna...:)

I REALLY like the design, color, and feel of your last piece...:thumbsup: :)
I think that if you get rid of the viewers left side of her calif muscle, and show the knee from the side,...will solve the problem...easy fix.
Right now, it looks as though her leg is being seen from two perpectives or angles at once.
The calif area, from knee to ankle appears to be seen from the front...the thigh, and ankle, appear to be seen from the side....impossible to have it both ways...when the leg is viewed from the side,..you want a bent B...shape....I used to make this same error myself..that is why I noticed it right away....Get BURNE HOGARTHS..DYNAMIC ANATOMY book if you can...will really help you solve alot of problems that arise when a figure is CREATED, and not copied..:)
Looking forward to seeing a lot more of your work...:thumbsup:

oh gosh *blushes* i lost the subsciption for my own thread, so thanks becca and spritdreamer for the replies and apologies for my late answer.

spiritdreamer: hey thx :D the ankle has been bothering me a while :d now i see whats wrong with it :).

heh becca, thx for posting it here and doing the paintover, now i only need to finish eh? well.... you know how that is with me and finishing.

anyway, i began a new pencil study today. it is weird, its screwed and dont ask me what it is about, it just crawled into my mind and wanted to be drawn. based on a graphite sketch i did a while ago (crappy one by the way ;)) and some stock photo i lost due to some hd crash .....

Heya Llynna,

This is a gorgeous drawing - it reminds me of the recent drawings of Icey (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=4041433&postcount=142), have you seen those? I think both of your drawings are really powerfully expressive - really nice to see. :)

oh yea becca i just looked at iceys thread and decided to burn all my stuff haha ;) kidding, just need to train more and fraud my pass, since i look 18 maybe i should do it and pretend im still young ;P.


was all day at university and after that a 30th birthday so not so much drawing done today. but i did a rather quick study for a drawing i want to give my parents for christmas, selfportrait using a mirror. my flatmate thinks its crap and that ive done better stuff. what do you people think a no go for a present?

Lynna,

I don't think your parents would think any self portrait you did was 'crap'. ;) Keep working on this, I hope to see it finished. :)

Your flatmate is wrong. That's a great portrait. Great line weight too.

hey guys n gals, some update for tonight

ive got something going on with change and metamorphosis these days and limitations, dont know well... so i changed the whole concept of a digital piece i did some sketches for. it was dead boring before or rather something like well maybe nice to look at but was no good gesture wise. so i decided to cut out the most important part of the thing where the main "action" is going on.

well

here we go, my evenings work for today.

over the day i began my master copy of leighton but totally screwed it up. wanted to go for oils and made the underlaying sketch too weak and painted on the wrong site of the canvas.... well stupidity cant be helped eh, so i have to start again from nothing heh.

Hi....Llynna...:)

Just stopping by to say...Glad to see you are back....:thumbsup:
I like that self portrait, and your other new stuff as well....very much a part of YOU...which is always a great thing to see...in a person's work ..:bounce:
I read that you are in a metamorphosis state of mind..:scream:
Have you checked out Werner Hornung / anselm ..
His porfolio is in cg talk ..don't know how to post links yet..MRS SPIRIT DREAMER takes care of that for me..:scream: but she is at work now...think you can just type his name in, and you will find him.
He is one of my favorite artist, and I think you might get some ideas and inspiration from his works...your work and his have a lot in common I think.
Would love to see that self portrait of yours,embelished upon, and put into a scape in a simaler way as he does with faces in some of his paintings...would look fantastic I think, and would also allow you to express your inner emotions further, while keeping your portrait as the center piece of the painting.....Just a passing thought from me, as I am seeing your self portrait....and some of your other personal works..they put me in mind of Werner Hornung.
Like I said,...Great to see you are back, and am really looking forward to seeing more of your work...IT'S always a real pleasure to see your impressions and expressions of LIFE..:thumbsup:
TAKE CARE

so, after laying down some days with the flu i finished the drawing this evening, somehow im a bit out of luck these last few month... hopefully i will be the luckiest girl in the world or so next year .D

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/Llynna/despairfinished.jpg

im rather pleased with the outcome, the hands are a bit well broken^^, but im going back to my bridgeman to get that fixed.

on a side note atm im working on doing a .psd file of doctor bones figure drawing tutorial thread. trying to type out all his notes for better reading, that is realy helpful too, we will see the outcome of it ;)

@glen: dont make me blush heh. its great that you like what im doing even when its a bit weird at times :D. i had a look at anselms stuff due to your post. realy surreal paintings he got there. i think i need some additional looks to get at least a tiny bit of all the things that are there to see.

hohoho, i hope you all had a great time over christmas and didnt fall for the family trouble trap ;).

i wanted to finish my puppeteer before christmas but i couldnt manage.... so im just a few hours before finishing. here is some preview. you all could do me a favor and tell me how the image looks like on your screen because i have sencere doubts about mine. is the shirt more greyish or bluish? is the red rich and saturated? ark i hate it, i want this calibration spyder!

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/Llynna/puppeteer56.jpg

while i was at my parents i started a new project, due to the lack of a proper comp and a graphic tablet its traditional. first i did some thumbs and found a gorgeous ref over at devart from a model named faestock.

Hey Britta...:D

Lovely drawing, Llynna, you should definitely check out the work of Alphonse Mucha:

That kind of style seems like it would be really inspirational for you. :)

Llynna
12-30-2006, 07:51 PM
heh becca,

in fact the drawing is kinda inspired by mucha. in my seminar about art around 1800 were speaking about mucha atm. also ive always been in love with art nouveau and also some newer art nouveau painters as yoshitaka amano.

12-30-2006, 08:12 PM
Hehe, well the influence definitely shows in a good way! :) I think you would really learn a lot from the great coloring of that age - such a beautiful style. On a related note, check out the Peacock Room (http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&lr=&q=peacock%20room&btnG=Search&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi) by James McNeill Whistler. Simply gorgeous stuff!

ohhh thanks becca :) another great artist to add to my bookmarks :)

so many artists out there, a lifetime isnt just long enaugh to explore them al. what a shame.

while i was at my parents i visited a Franz Radziwill exhibition, he was a german magic realism painter which was quite fun to see, next week im off to the guggenheim exhibit in bonn where most of the guggenheims paintings are shown, am not to shure if i will like it but one never knows before one sees eh.

Wow, Lynna, this thread is just gorgeous. Very inspiring, I love how you work with your references and add that fantastical touch in costume and makeup. Your pencil works are just lovely, you have a real eye for lights and darks and subtleties that a lot of people miss. Loving the last work, though I really liked the portrait you did of your friend with the rat, would love to see you finish that one.

Llynna
