My first post and my first WIP :thumbsup:
My Idea was to improve my skills in light trechniques but i didn´t only want to draw some balls with light shines on them an cast shadows and all this stuff...
So that´s the result of my "experiment"... Not really a light study but also interesting :)
Feel free to post comments and suggestions on how I should change things etc.
By the way: I use painter 9 for my study... Standard brushes
First step was simply creating some kind of body on what light can reflect on. I had nothing special on my mind.
Progress 1 (http://www.deviantart.com/view/22152655/)
Step 2 - I gave some colors to my elephantish ...thing :D Also some horns grew out of his head... wonder in what way the painting will develop
Progress 2 (http://www.deviantart.com/view/22152660/)
Step 3 - Yup, a background was needed. Painter is really great in doing bgs: Some oilbrush and a pallette knife - voilá! ...Actually I´m not happy with it :D But it will do it for now. Additionally I added some kind of fur (in fact I wanted to create some muscles but ...nevermind)
Progress 3 (http://www.deviantart.com/view/22152667/)
Step 4 - Yes look at the head.It morphed! And much better now... I missed to take some screenshots for the steps between step 3 and 4 - Im soooo sorry! :sad:
I try to improve my skills on light so I let away the brighter colors on the head. They will be added later (If I made my mind up how I get a more realistic way to draw light. Anyone got some good tutorial(s)?
Progress 4 (http://www.deviantart.com/view/22152674/)
Step 5 - Will come soon (as soon as I have got time... But certainly in the next 2-3 days!
Im really looking forward for your comments!
Post as much as you can! :-) hehe
