Reclining Wizard

Well, it's been a few months since I've been able to work on a piece due to the hectic schedule at school. This is just a sketch of a piece I hope to finish within the next week or two before I go back. I dunno what to call it so as for now it will be known as the 'Reclining Wizard'.

Lemme know what you think.

Thanks

well, so far its a bit hard to get any sense of him reclining, or what kind of a mood you want this piece to have. you seem very cautious in your sketch, dont worry about having a messy sketch, it helps you determine the shape, how he is holding his body etc. sketch from the center of the body, dont outline. "feel out" where the folds of cloth should go.

right now the staff isnt making much sense, so you might want to move it (it looks like its coming out of his leg) but you did a good job on his hands

keep going!

Thanks yulias, I'll keep that in mind for next time.

I moved the character up in the composition, re-positioned the staff and started to try and get a feel for the colour scheme I want.

Thumbs up

I really like that last one there. Looks like moonlight filtering in. Really cool.

jackie_66 - thanks. the moonlight idea sounded intriguing. Originally I just saw it as some sort of light ontop of him, never thought of the moon. So this next one is alittle more 'nocturnal'

Anyway, another colour scheme. I'm still not sure whether to go with a warm or cool pallette.I'm rediscovering how much I hate rendering cloth. Maybe I can have a secondary light source, like a fire or something off screen that would give some warm light from the side...who knows.

Well guys, it's 3:53 in the morning on a Saturday. I have a tough decision to make with two possibilities. One is to go to sleep and get some much needed zzz's or stay up somemore and work on this fella over here. I dunno if you have ever had this, but I just have the urge to paint all night...ah well I'm just rambling now.

Here's another update. Started adding another light source to get some more colour in the composition.

I have so many sketches in my note books that I would love to color

kalyse - I rarely use filters unless I'm trying to get an effect that I can only be achieve through the use of one.

I just use 2 main brushes. Round hard edge and a custom brush which is alot like the one Linda Bergkvist has shown in a few threads (the speckled one) with pressure of my tablet set to opacity. Nothin complicated.
