trianglekid, its a black pen. I think its called ballpoint or something like that. Yes I love doing theese crazy and intuitive creatures and people! I lack of anatomy-knowledge, so my "real-people-drawings" are all real-life drawings IŽll attach some more scribbles to this post.


sorry this is a little OT, but laber, i don't know if you do any 3D art, but if you're interested, there is a piece of software that i'm learning to use called "zbrush" and it is PHENOMENAL for making humans, creatures, and anatomy. it's absolutely incredible, and i think it would suit your style very very well. they have a demo available at http://www.pixologic.com. it's very small, very fast, and very intuitive. i bet you'll be able to sculpt those creations in no time with it.


here are some artists who use zbrush and their interviews. http://pixologic.com/zbrush/intervi...interviews.html

you can see the emphasis on creatures and anatomy.

Wow !

zhuzhu,

Those sketches are great!
The 2nd one is the best I think...
How did you achieve such nice watercolor effect in PS 7 ?!?!

And the obvious question, did you draw them from photo-ref
or from real-life model ?

So cool to see such diverse work, from all over the world!

thanks,i use photo ref for these sketch,i think i can get more model pic from the web for drawing as ref, this is an easy way.if face the real model,i'd like to use my pencil or chalk.watercolor in digital just have fun,i use the wet media brush,do some change.use layer blend mode and sharpen filter to apply the watercolor looking.

For you, an exception, so long as you post no more than 10 TOTAL, and they are under 600 pixels WIDE.

You should post a tutorial here:

DIGITAL TIPS/TUTORIALS FOR DRAWING AND PAINTING WITH PHOTOSHOP AND PAINTER

hint! hint!

~Rebeccak

Remember that you can also post ELSEWHERE in the forum.

AdrielaSakamoto,

These are excellent! Have you ever considered doing a children's book, a la Brother's Grimm?

I think your dark style lends itself nicely to fairy tales ~ a book project would be cool!

I know of a good writer who likes dark subjects...

Thank you so much for your kind comments, R. Yes, I have, actually, and have a couple written, but I haven't done a thing with them. I've been sculpting mostly the past year or so, trying to help finances, and selling insipid stuff on eBay.. thank god for insipid stuff on eBay, yes?http://www.adriela.com - the witch is probably my best to date. The others just feed a particular cutsie niche.

edit: oh, if you go, just click on the "more details" under the witch. The rotational photos take light years to load.

AdrielaSakamoto,

Your website is very cool! Are you a great fan of the Brothers Quay? If you have not checked them out, then you should. They are rather famous for their stopmotion piece "Street of Crocodiles" ~ it's tres creepy in a wonderful sort of way.

These guys are American born expats living in Britain ~ a really strange set of twins that make incredible stop motion animation. Their style has been used for and copied in loads of music videos, and I just bought the "Instituta Benjamenta", but it creeped me out a little too much and I haven't finished watching the DVD ~ but their style is amazing, and highly illustrative.
Definitely worth checking out.

Thanks for this cool post!

~Rebeccak

Zhuzhu,

I know my comments are a bit late in this thread, but I'm new to CGtalk and this is my first post. My hope is that, even so, you will read this at some point. Your figures are so absolutely inspiring to me, and you make me so envious!! ^_^ It's my goal to branch out from the traditional media and work primarily in the digital media, and your pieces here are the exact type that cause this desire. Not to mention that I absolutely love the human form in art. You pull it off near flawlessly in my opinion. I was curious, what sort of brushes did you use on your third figure? When i originally looked at each of them my first impression was "how can I recreate that look in painter?" So I'd appreciate it greatly if you might expand on the media used within your program to create the first and third pieces? Thanks so much,

seraph
