Hi

I'm here at work thinking about this pose and I have found out while sketching that the woman loses some of her elegance due to the foreshortening of her left leg. Now she is rotating her leg outward, to her left side, and it sort of breaks the flow of the rest of the pose.If you sketch her left leg more in sideview, the whole pose looks a lot more gracious.

I also think you should play with variations of the position of the head. Make her look straight up or down to her left knee or something.



Can we see them? :bounce:



Not even 30 min a day? I know I know I can be a pain :p
But it's just a matter of making it a habbit really. At first I also found it hard... coming home from work, still having a lot of work to do at home (I have 3kids) and then finally... bamm... in the sofa... totall loss. Then I found out I can still sketch while being totall loss...
I hope you will find a solution too :D


NR

First I appreciate the help and everything but why are you looking at this at work. That is above and beyond. After looking at it again last night, I realize the left leg is a little small too. I have two women that will give me a shoot with a camera I can see how the anatomy is going to work out. I think that will help a lot. She is pulling away with force. Her legs should be buring into the ground with extreme exertion.

Second, I will scan those in tomorrow and post them on my anatomy thread and link it to a reply.

Thrid, I find myself at home with my wife and son enjoying there company and then realize it is time for bed. I squeeze in a sketch pad and a pencil and a 5 minute sketch turns into a 15 minute sketch then it is now an hour sketch and the next thing I know it is at least an hour a day for a few day sketch. It is very addictive for me. Digital art is a little different. I find it harder to get the computer out and start working with it.

NR, I know you have more to do than mess with me. Thanks for you help though!

I found a cause. I am an avid cyclist and I will be riding in the Hotter N Hell Hundred on the 25th. I also found a foundation called saved the Ta-Tas. Since I love boobs, why not save them for all. I decided to create a riding team called Team Breast or Bust. I then created some jerseys for us, as well as sell. A portion of the sale will go to pay the jersey and a portion will go to the Susan Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. Here is the image that will go on the jersey.

My attempt at Manga. I am following some rules of "How to Draw Manga" website, but I am using a pose from some stock we had here. It is a WIP.

your last picture is great :) i like the shading youve got going on, really, the only thing you need to work on is curvature of form. i think you really got this, just understanding the little tidbits about muscle curves will help you immensely. your stuff looks great! i particularly like the perspective picture you did a little while back :D!

Auria - Thank you for your kind words. I like the cartoonish work. I just find myself going back to realistic work. I thought going manga would give me faster and easier results, not so.

Here is an update of my first layer of clothes on Manga girl!

you're really good at painting digitally from the pics I have seen in your thread!
the coloring in your manga girl is looking really good! the only thing is that she seems to be like very small, I know the manga workshop says to use a 7 head measurement, but in my opinion using 8 heads like you do in realism drawing looks way better :)
keep it up :thumbsup:

aggie93
09-24-2007, 09:27 PM
VincereCaos - Thanks for the cuddos. To be honest, I sketched the pose from a stock photo I had. I then erased the head of the sketch and sketched out the manga head. I too think I made it a bit to big. I think I will pursue another pose soon and see how I can approach it differently.

I am having a hell of a time with the anatomy and digital painting to be exact. Therefore I started on the workshop thread of CAFE 001. Let's see how that goes. I am using the techniques as outlined in the steps on Henning Ludvigsen's webiste, http://www.henningludvigsen.com/wordpress/ . I hope it works. It seems to be helping a little. I sketched it in pencil (not shown). Then outlined and shaded in charcoal. I added shadows and highlights with acrylics then blended them with the blenders. Here is what I have so far.

Auria - Thanks. That pose is harder than it looks. I want to finish it but I cannot without a model to pose for me. I cannot get the anatomy to work. I have asked a few women on Deviant art to try it for me but the cannot get the exact angle and strain this painting is doing. Any suggestions?

Here is one I am working on the manga thread.

Hi Aggie, good job on those muscles. I'm curious how that one will turn out!

abbeytermeer
09-29-2007, 01:28 AM
if you cant get anyone online to pose for you, try one of your friends. the possibility of a nude photograph would be less likely, however even a clothed reference can really give you an idea of angles and form, almost to a point where you can see the underlying form underneath. and i know you know the form underneath from your previous paintings... once you draw from a ref like that, i think you'll really start to see the piece really come together...

either that or listen to a little of the black album, that always sparks up some inspiration ;D

Hey Aggie,

The muscles in #261 are very incredibly rendered. Hope to see the whole figure fully rendered soon! :thumbsup:

Angelvoice - Thanks for the comment. I hope to start on the muscles again tonight. I had a wonderful weekend alone with my wife since my son went with his aunt and uncle to a football game for the weekend. Sometimes you have to leave the canvas.

Batte812 - Thanks too for the comment.

Auria - I already asked my wife to. She'd do it clothed and like you said that would work. She does not take modeling serious enough to get a good pose done. I think Black has the best songs too. But Saint Anger came from their most recent album, St. Anger.

I have a hard time staying on one painting at a time. Here is what I started as a test in Photoshop CS3 trial version. I find that it is harder that Painter 9.5, probably because I am used to Painter now. Anyway this is the WIPs so far:

Vaaken - this is from a reference photo from a acquaintence here in Texas. She has a great portfolio to use. I am thinking of turning this into some sort of Pin-Up style with a late 1700s circa. I am really liking my Norwegian friends coming here!

The figure and the clothes are great, but the background is too flat( i would maybe leavethe girl and the cannon and remove everything else. Or add texture to the boxes and paint something in the background)
I just love the way you did the folds)

Reav - Thanks for the comments. I need help with backgrounds.


I have started a new series. I have decided to pour my talent, and I use that term loosely, for women with breast cancer. I have made up cycling jerseys to buy where the proceeds go to the Susan Komen Foundation. I have an endurance team that we call Team BOoB (Breast Or Bust). Now my series called Bald is Beautiful. I want women, who are going through treatments, to see that beauty can be bald too! I grew my hair out for two years to donate for this cause as well. Here is my first painting:

Start - pencil drawing on paper then scanned in to paint with Painter 9.5.

I think it's a great project. There are loads of women who get breast cancer and it has a major impact on their lives and the lives of their environment.
I would concider including some paintings in your series where the women are not all that perfect. Firstly, admit it, most women we know in real life don't meet to these perfect standards if it comes to proportions. I think your series will attract a bigger target group if you include some realistic women. Secondly, but that's just a personal matter, I think that a woman who doesn't look like a supermodel doesn't really lack those perfect curves... in fact their curves look just as beautiful to me, artistically spoken.

One big difference I notice in your workflow is now you have added some background at an early stage. Good choice!
Best of luck with your project!

NR43 - Thanks for the inspiration. I thought along those lines. Seeing that my focus is on breast cancer and the affects of that plus the treatment, I thought about how it affects the body. In the duration of the series, I will have some without breast, some with reconstructed, clothes and without. My hope is that I may get some women that are either in the middle of the process, nearing the end or have won the battle to pose for me. That will give me the human touch of this series. Therefore, if you know of anyone that would like to do that ask them and let me know! Thanks!

As far as the background, I am not good at it at all. I need to figure out how to make a background with depth and it not take away from my subject.

Don't let yourself get discourged so easily...just keep posting,.You ARE improving after all..:) Just try to remember that it is a two way street.:)
Respond to others, and they should respond back to you...It doesn't always work like it should...but try to look at it like it is their problem, and not yours when it doesn't..:) ..Just do your best, try to set good examples with your work and words... That is all you can do..:)
I for one, have tried to go out of my way to be of help to others that have needed it along the way on this learning journy that we are all on.
I have posted on a daily basis, in hopes that my work and words can be learned from by those who are just starting, and maybe to even inspire a little those who are more advanced than myself, to push themselves even harder.
It does get a little discouraging at times I must admit, when I respond to ten peoples threads, and nobody responds back on mine,...I just figure that they are very self centered, busy, or have some sort of problem that is beyond my help...THAT'S JUST LIFE IN THE THE BIG CITY, AND THE WAY IT GOES..AND IS...LOL:scream:
Hang in there Aggie,...It just get's better when you do...:)

Thanks Spirit. That means a lot coming from you. I do comment on other's works here, especially some of the newer ones. I guess I was feeling a little down anyway last night. Sometimes I get real discouraged with my art that I even give up for months at a time, then I pick it back up. It is not good for me getting better. It is just I do not hear from anyone that used to comment and I guess I miss their words of encouragement, like you, Rebbeca, Mu, and NR, the whole OFDW group. I need to get into that again, speaking of which.

Also, basically everything Glenn said is true.

Hey Aggs ;)

Nope you haven't made anyone mad, life has just gotten exponentially busier for me now that I'm out of school with less time to spam :) and actually what I like about the forum as it's grown up is that it no longer requires my constant input and comments to keep it going. When the forum was smaller I could comment on everyone's stuff, but now I just can't keep up and to be honest it's the job of the forum members to keep this a thriving place (which you guys have done an amazing job of doing). The OFDWs were actually a way for me to get everyone to improve in the same direction at once since I was more or less posting the same comments to everyone's anatomy threads, which was the mantra of, do master copies, work from life, work from imagination. I can't do much more than that on a daily basis for everyone. :)

Stick around buddy, don't feel like just because I don't comment on threads as much anymore that I don't still pay attention. :)

You've made a lot of progress, but no, I can't comment on every minor update that everyone makes here (that's not something I would even do in my live, paid classes). More recently I just try to take the pulse of the forum to see what direction people need to go in. The forum is decidedly less about me (which is good, that means the forum is successful) and much more about the community interaction. Input = output, and it's tough work, isn't it? ;)

The last OFDW took me 3 days to put together, and so I highly recommend taking part in those when they come around. While I can't comment to everyones' threads, I've given everyone ample opportunity to practice their skills even when the Workshops aren't active.

Cheers,

Reb - I wasn't picking on you or anyone else for that matter. I just missed you guys, the kind comments. That is what kept me going. I know we all have jobs other than this forum. I couldn't get into the last few OFDWs like before. I guess it was because I didn't see you guys in there as much. Again, I am sorry I brought this thread down. It has been one of those weeks. Congratulations on you new job. I would love to take an art class from you some day.

Hey Aggs, no worries :) we all feel the same I think about forum life ;) - I wish that I could have been more active in the last OFDWs but that's just life. Hopefully I'll run a new one where I can be a bit more active.

Keep going buddy, we all get discouraged but it's important to push yourself forward with or without a cheerleading team, though cheerleaders certainly help. :)

Hey Aggs,

Heh, don't mean to be discouraging, but I'm not really into seeing this kind of image on the forum. ;)

I like the previous picture of your wife though, and hope you take that further. I hope you don't mind if I ask that you take the last images down though, as this isn't that kind of site. ;)

Thanks Killer. I thought the same thing but she is really thin. I may have the shadows wrong.

i think that the waist is too thin, too...
but the rest is very nice, and the quality of the shading is really outstanding!

Thanks Babke. I will work more on that tonight.

Coming off of Madaith's thread. I decided to go to Posemaniacs.com and do some two-three minute gesture sketches as much as I can a day. Here is today's (sorry for the bad photo)

i don really understood the idea behind the liquid brush,but its nice but if u think of a replacement over it i'd prefer something sheer :) that wud make her look good even if she is thin

Killer - the idea is a glassy type clothing. She is an AI inside the computer world. I figure the clothes would be more or less transparent but would slightly distort her underneath it. I will have more of a story later.

I am in painter and I used the Thin Distorto brush under Distortion brushes. I kinda like the out come of it even though I was wanting it to look more like glass. I think a liquid look works. I need to add highlights and shadows, plus reflections.

Repost from the Manga Workshop Thread:

Working on my Allu character:

Another Allu pose, sleeping:

Start with pencil and pen:

Then scanned it into Painter. Using round brush pens set at 10% opacity, started the skin:

Next adding the draped see through sheet. Painted with 100% opacity but set the layer to 50%.

that negative technique is pretty interesting to look at, especially with the lines showing.. dunno why. Nice job so far on the latest one, good skin tones and pose, I think.

DivineRain - I think thanks for the comment. You gave a couple of comments then ended each one undecisive. Any particular reason you had reservations with each?

I actually got more done on the negative pose. Here is the latest on it:

Hi Aggie, it's nice to see the progress in your paintings: the figures are constructed very well and you manage to draw some very convinding poses. Keep going!

batte812 - Thanks. It has been awhile since I posted on my own thread. I have been trying to figure out manga so I have been posting on their workshop. I find it more difficult than realistic work. http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?p=5267307#post5267307Thanks for stopping by and reviving this thread.
