View Full Version : Hello CG world! - Tablet practice

11 November 2005, 03:26 AM
Hey everyone, this is my first post. Ive been looking through everything for a while, but never thought i was good enough to make a post. Well, i decided its better to get some good c&c ratehr than running away and hiding from the evil comments =P

Here it is, a quick 30min drawing. I referenced off several other images, but none were quite like this one - so i guess its an origianal - altough the pose is pretty standard =\

Please Rip it up guys, its the fastest way to improvement.

Wow, I'd love to see some colours on this now. Very good anatomy and nice sketching style - it's hard to comment on just yet, but I can tell it's gonna be good :thumbsup:

Hey thanks! I have not really done much in terms on painting. I guess it wouldn't huty giving it a shot.

Great sketch! In my opinion the left (her right) ankle could be thinner as well as her feet. Is it just me or is she almost missing the right (her left) heel? I would also make the left (her right) leg a bit thinner (and maybe add a little curvature to the legs as she seems to be quite 'curvy' otherwise :))

Of course, all this depends on what style you're pursuing but it's a really nice sketch anyway!

Hmm, ill consider that, thanks!

I have a photoshop question... i used to use ps7, but now i use CS2 and im finding that the pen tool is diff now =\ i cant get it to be just a line without it filling in that area between the two points. i used to be able to click as many points and i wanted and right click to choose "stroke path" or "make selection" etc. does anyone know how to turn it back on?

Here another update. i changed the clothes a bit. I am not good enoguh to draw folds that go all the way dow the leg, i feel that i still need some practice on that.

Really nice work :) I like the anatomy and the sketchy style. Although I think you could improve her feet, they are way too big in my opinion :) women usually have tiny feet :)

Overall really nice work!

Keep it up!

Ok i'll modify her feet in the next update. I added some more clothes. i wanted something unique, so i made these funny twirly things coming from her back =P

i really like it so far. would like to see some more bandage- and curly-stuff as i think it would fit perfectly, but thats just my little opinion :D

show us more!
