LOL, everytime I think I figured you out you come up with something new I want to raise my eyebrows about like Mr. Spock bumping into "human irrationality"...

just a little update

Hey everyone ! just a little update on my progress so far
Im having a bit of trouble trying to match up the skin tone colors etc but i will keep trying.


Old 02 February 2006   #36
This is what I have so far after an hour or so......

I think that the head may be a little small but I am still in the blocking in phase.

Crit time.

Ok guys, you gotta give a a guy a chance to get started.

By the way, everyone who has started, is doing a FABULOUS job!

im in too, started 2 hours or so ago after my boyfriend left. am quite satisfied as for now, going to lay some basic colouring down now on her. bg is still really rough, will come back to him some time later.

@makaron: great start proportions are looking nice, only her right arm seems a bit short. one advice though, dont start out with those greys, try it with a little bit more saturated light blue for the pale bluish look of the skin. carefully apply some greyish blue after that.

@ego: whee, looking real good so far you really are productive the last couple of days . hopefully this wont remain a 15 min sketch. see you around

@vnikolov: both versions look nice maybe you should colour the one with your friend, would be something slightly different to look at here at the thread. am curious how you would develop it.

@matellis: nice colours and a real great start. hopefully you update soon.

@pushav: hey mate, havent seen you in a long time great to see you here too. colours are looking real good as a basic layout!

so guys n gals keep it comin
Old 02 February 2006   #39 might want to establish the surface planes on the face and head right from
the start on this painting.....needs more skull on top, and more neck...line of spine up into
base of skull......squree off chin...nose...forhead....cheeks, and establish eye sockets..with
corect angles. Put the same amont of feeling and acuracy into this face, as you put into
the rap singers faces in your personal thread.....get it down from the start, will make the
rest of the painting more enjoyible for you to finish I think.
You are off to a really nice start here,...colors are right on the money...body looks good, but
the face and head are the focal point of this painting, so give them your all....
Just trying to be of some help to you...I know what your capible of, and would like to see
it all come together for you on this painting.

Well here is what I was able to get so far. I hope to maybe get the rest blocked of tomorrow, and then I can try and start painting it in PS. The picture I took did not come out to hot because my lines are still very light so I bumped up the contrast some. As you can see I am still very much a beginner so any comments would be much appreciated.

Hey everyone , all the sketches are looking really good , no crits here.

Thought I would post up my update since i am done working on it for the day. Its coming along good , im happy with it so far , if anyone sees anything wrong let me know , i need some fresh eyes , dont wanna get to far along and realize i did something majorly wrong!

Keep up the good work everyone
