Stahlberg,

Schweet Holy Moly! And I thought he was kidding!

Awesome!!! It is not often you get a Maya Master to post on your thread...

kaylon,

Ooh, the back looks really good so far and I like the way the hair is smudged. Thanks for posting!

Squibbit,

Coolness, no?

default.rol,

Oh no!!! Yep, I understand... *Guilt* *Guilt* *Guilt*

lunat1k,

Looks good so far, I would just offset the curves more to emphasize volume.

~Awesome work so far guys! This thread is so going to rock!

Okay here's the update, I had enough time for a few more hours. Maya, linear Smooth Proxy, about 3600 polygons unsmoothed.





Good work you guys!
edit: Squibbit nice one!

Squibbit,

You did that just for this thread? *cries* Fantastic work!!!

Stahlberg,

Crowd emits *Ooohs* *Ahhhs* Awesomeness! Thanks for posting the wireframe too, that's super cool to see. This is great! I'm really happy to see 3D stuff here as well! I think it probably would make for great practice to continuously pose models in positions matching photo reference. Schhhhweet!!!

*Caveat*

Ok, guys/gals, I don't want you to think that this thread is for pros only. It's great to have Stahlberg post his work, but don't let that scare you away from posting your own.

This thread and future threads are for beginners and professionals alike. I'm sure Stahlberg would be willing to offer comments were he asked nicely and given brownies.

A question

Is this thread just for digital art, or will it be ok to scan paper drawings and post them?
I'm not that great with my tablet yet (although this will be a good chance to practice) and I find I get better results by working at least initially on paper.

Thanks!

amy_517,

You can absolutely use any traditional or digital medium of your choice! In fact, I love traditional work and like to see people post their traditional drawings / paintings. So absolutely please feel free to do so.

*laughing hysterically*

Wow, if I'd known it were as simple as offering brownies to lure a Maya Master into posting, I would have checked out the Betty Crocker aisle sooner!

But seriously, Senor Stahlberg, please feel free to jump in and offer advice on this and any thread in the Anatomy forum.

~Rebeccak

EDIT: Just don't scare away the noobies! We likes the noobies. Was that creepy?

falling on a crappy sketch

Be quiet Subconcious, I'm showing people my stuff. You stay out of it for once.

This was kind of a challenge for me, I'm not used to working with pictures that are this saturated or this blown out. I found it really really hard to suggest surface angle on some of the places that are bright any value change is microscopic.

I was trying to apply what I could remember from the life drawing short course I did way back and the useful words of Richard Schmid since I haven't used them in a while and I've been wanting to get back into using human reference lately. I felt like a bit of an idiot trying to measure of the screen with a pencil though. It seems to work better when using a whole person and a much bigger piece of paper. Still seem to be having trouble picking colours, I think my picture should be redder.

I did this at the same size as the original photo so you'll have to excuse any aliasing that appears. Unfortunately my favourite Painter brush (the oil pastel) doesn't like being used at small sizes and produces jagged lines.

Anyway, the pencil version, which I think may have taken longer than it should have (hour maybe). My own fault for wanting it to be accurate...and being slow.


And the painted version. I'm hoping to go back for the background later but its 2am here and the heavy metal's starting to wear off.


Rebecca, are any more of the pictures going to have that watermark on them? I can understand the reason for it being there but it kept throwing my ability to pick the value in some areas. I could just be being picky though, its happened before.
