Rebecca I've done my digital paint version of my sketch, but its on my other computer at the moment (with out the internet). I'll post it later today.

Just a little bit of crit from me on the work posted so far...

Pushav - I really like the lower half of your drawing, the stomack and legs are really good. They have a really good line to them. And your feet are much better than mine! lol I think where the toes go down then back up shows the form better. The breast seems a little big and to the side, the crease lines need to be half way from her nipple to her arm pit. I think that would make the flow a lot better and the whole body would be really good. Theres something about the face that doesn't look quiet right... i think it might be her eyes, they look painted on, i think if you made them dark with a highlight would really make them pop!

Zootjens - 20mins! thats well good. The face and neck look really good, i find it hard to draw face's from the side. Her right breast seems a bit too pointy. I like the volume that you've got in the left leg, but her right leg is way too small. I know what you mean about the scanner losing the subtleys.

Noiram - Love the shading on the legs, shows a realy sence of volume and muscle. Ie, the subtle shadow showing the bulge of the calf (Gastrocnemius). Its a shame that the right arm isn't as good as the legs, it almost looks broken. Its mainly becasue of the dark line that runs on the underside of the arm, this needs to flow (slightly outwards). Other than that i really like this picture, has a nice mood.

Rebeccak - I aggree with Zootjens a bit in that you've made a pretty woman in to a 'muscle freak' (lol). At first i didn't like it, but I really love your quality of line and the way that you show volume... Then i was thinking thats what arts about anyways, it doesn't need to look exactley like what your drawing... it more the representaion of it... anyways... i now like it! Bit hard to crit in its WIP state, other that the arm that the others have poited out, but i'm sure you'll fix that when you come to render it.

Zhuzhu - Are you finished? (not head or left arm?) Really good picture, just a shame that you left the head and arm out. Good use of shading, and yet another FOOT thats better than mine! lol

Default.rol - Really nice line work, good form and volume, Can't see anything really wrong with it apart from the head (but you said that). Be nice to see this turned into a painting. Really good so far!

@zhuzhu: great sketch, very inspiring. hopefully we will see more

@default.rol: i would try to do something about her breasts too they look a bit hm... not very esthetic. i am really curious how this is going to turn out

@rebecca: thank you for your concern, but i had just some annoying checkups to be done. the female lineof my family is suffering from epilepsy, so those have to be done on a regular basis.
anyway, back to the topic. i did this last nichgt and today and am qute fond of it, especially about the foot (i did it^^).

Take another look at the breasts, check! Will take another look at those when I do the head. Thank you for the feedback!

Like your pic - is it going to become a (full colour) painting too? Like your Birdqueen piece?

Llynna,

Great work so far, her right leg is looking fantastic, especially the foot! Makes me eager to start painting, darn job! *grumble grumble*.

Her rib's a bit pointy, but that's an easy fix. What're your plans for the bkgrd?

This is going to be another great thread! It's great to see all the hard work already!

Lynna,

One good way to 'get color on grayscale' is to create a new layer above your grayscale image and paint with the color of your choice. Set the blending mode of that layer to "Color" and you will see magical stuff happen. Experiment with different blending modes on this Color layer ~ they work better or worse depending on what layer they are on top of.

Make sure to keep your grayscale imagery separate.

Good luck!

~Rebeccak

Here is a really fast example of using Color mode on a separate layer over grayscale...pardon my early stage drawing, *ahem*...











EDIT: Erm, a slightly less embarrassing example...

Orange (in this case, just a fast choice) goes on the layer called "Blending Mode", and that layer has been set to "Color". As you prolly know, there are many other Blending Modes which you can toggle thru by pressing Shift + "=" while on the layer of your choice.

Hope this helps! Stahlberg has a much more in-depth demo of this process on his website, Android Blues, I believe?

Here is the link to his tutorial. Erilaz pointed out his tutorials on the Art Theories forum.

O.K, I worked my line drawing up into a prep study for the first pose. This piece is not going to be my digital painting, its just a "look and feel" mock up for something (hopefully) far more substantial, (hence the line art is still visable etc.)



Around 2 1/4 hours in PS.

I will be trying it in Painter too...

MIKE

default.rol / Mike,

Ah, very nice, my friend, very nice! The overall pose looks very natural, and the little kinks here and there will be easy enough to tweak as you paint this 'for real'.

One minor suggestion is that her forehead is a bit long ~ but, I will leave you to your own devices, as I know you're smart enough to figure these things out.

Schweet! Thanks for posting this!
