:: dance Couple digital Painting | WiP 01

Digital painting practice, this one will not be a speed painting or a spit paint, this MIGHT be for a client.  Not too sure, I hope he likes.
Here are my progress and reference images pasted in the same PSD file.

- dancing Couple line roughOut -

- fixing the slight changes to the proportions and lighting -

Info on the reference pictures:

- female anatomy images 'nabbed from Chris Legaspi's website.
- top right photograph of the two dance couples - to be honest I do not remember where I obtained it from, I think from someone on FaceBook.
- As you guys can see though, the poses are copied straight from that photograph, and the lighting too.
- My goal is to change the woman's hair, and dress, and the same for the guy. maybe give him a a slightly different body too, if I can help it.

:: quickProject-01 -- cannabis Works inspired hallWay Isometrics

- cleaned Up sketches | done with pencil > copic > copic pens -

- sketches skewed, stitched together to formulate bigger pieces of hallWay -

These sketches were done in a hurry, so I can photograph them in (don't have a working scanner for now) and slap them into photoShop to clean them up and stitch them together to form some quick isometrics.  This way, I can do some paint overs, of different sections of the front door entrances to these apartments and give them some individual personalities.  :D

And I am back.
Some weird tree sketchy thing I markered in with my COPICS when I was waiting for my car to be SMOG checked.

::Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead | 1st Post

Finished off October satisfied, missed about two or three days of drawing on that month, and did not scan in my drawings daily like I should have, and fell behind a few times (not by much!) - but all in all, stayed on it. :D

Spent the day (on Nov. 1st) reminiscing my grandma (sister's dad's mom) of the good times we had with her.

So here is two posts of two drawerings I did these these past two days of November.  :)

- Day-01 | pinUp, pose snatched from my ref. collection -

- Day-02 | pinUp, pose snatched from my ref. collection -

So, for now I want to keep it simple, and fun, more pinUp girls, except with skull make up painted on them!

:: "Dancin' Rose" Finally finished!!!

Finally got around to finishing this one.  Will use this as a separate texture for a 3D model, instead, will just have it posting here.  So far this is as good as I am right now with rendering and understanding the female anatomy.  I need to do more!
Really happy with the way it turned out.  Now I need to work on another awesome person.  :D

:: thirty-One days of DRAW!!! Day-05 | October 2013

Here is another upDate, lagging on my scans, but I am being honest with my drawings.  That is what matters here.  This is one I took a while on, she actually took me about 45 minutes.  I spent a good time chatting it up with a couple of friends whom I have not seen in a while when working on this.  Happy with the way it came out, copied it from a favorite artist of mine right now who posted on not too long ago.

The link to the image is here:

:: thirty-One days of DRAW!!! Day-04 | October 2013

Not a good day for Day-04, I did a couple of speed sketches, some of whom did not make me happy, this was the best one I could do for the night.  I made a quick drawing of one of my favorite actresses (Sofia Vergara), and sadly did not do her any justice.
No worries though, I will come back to her, I will do it justice.  Oh yes, I will....

Yup, in this drawing, I did not do justice to her shading, paper, and my efforts were a disgrace, but it is ok, I was mainly concentrating on speed here, took me 23 minutes on this one.  So yes, must keep drawing, must keep drawing, must keep pushing!!!

:: thirty days of drawAge! Day-03

Ok, so....
Here is the 3rd post, for the 3rd day, must keep drawing must keep drawing, must keep DRAWING!!!!
I could not find a decent angle or a good interesting person to draw at the coffee shop I frequent, so what I did was improvise by finding a picture on the interWoogie.  :P
So this is what I found... I drew off of a self photograph of a professional photographer whom I follow on Google Plus.  He goes by the name of Ivan Makarov, he has astonishing work, and it is very inspirational for me.  
I hope this link works:

There you should see the photo I copied it from.  Hope he does not get offended either lol.

So basically what I see here, I notice that I STILL need to loosen up!  Seriously, this one took me 25 minutes to complete.  I know if I loosen up and relax with this technique I will be able to produce these sketches quicker.

:: thirty days of drawAge! Day-02

Here is the second round, I apologize for the late submission, I am about 26 hours behind on posting for Day 02's post, and 2 hours behind on posting for Day 03's lol.
Not a good start, but the drawings were done before those days were over though, just not the scanning jijiji.
So this is a drawing of my friend Michael Linman, he is a cool guy, super experienced artist, and has traveled around the world while int he military for the most part.  He knows a lot about a lot I would say.  
So basically, I see I am making very little progress here, I still need to loosen up, so on the second drawing I attempted to draw him a bit more bigger.  Still not satisfied though...

:: thirty days of drawAge! Day-01

Good evening all, this is an attempt to cover a couple of sketches a day, for all of October.  I am to draw whatever I would like, or whatever I come up with, or whatever someone tells me to draw.  :P
Enjoy, this is Day-01
- cute coffeeShop nerdy Asian girl -

Jeje she caught me drawing her, gave me the funny look.  Anyways, the way I begin this is by drawing the simple shapes that will fit inside the rectangle thumbnail you may slightly see there to fit in the composition and the form.
Then from there I get a darker pencil and begin shading in the darks to add form and value, at the same time I leave the light areas (tint) completely blank.
Then I grab a W3 Copic marker and spread the dark penciled areas to add mid-tones and form them in.
After that, I wait for the marker to dry on the 50% gray toned paper (which is thick, and smooth - it lends itself nicely to these media I am using), and begin adding tints (light) areas with a white color pencil to accentuate the lighting.  Ultimately giving her a nicer smoother shading look.  Some :homie" walked by and asked me to tattoo this on his arm. LOL

:: "Dancin' Rose" pinUp [upDate 03]

This needs to be done, I had to clean a lot of her torso up, could not get the angles on her chest right, and align those well with the rest of the torso.  Finally got it to a point that satisfied me, worked on her for about 4 hours tonight, am done for the night!  Very slow progress....
So here are two screen grabs, one of her without the dress, the second with the progress of the dress.

:: "Dancin' Rose" pinUp [upDate 02]

More progress for tonight, not by much though.  Other stuffs going on.  
Couple of things I am working on, are the hands.  I am going to re-position her right arm, and then bring out her left - and have it rest some where mid-torso.
Cannot wait to cloth her, am looking at what she will look good in, and also trying to figure out the hair.
Decisions oh the decisions lol, I need to HURRY!!!!!  HURRY HURRRRY!!!!!!

Also got started on a couple of Halloween pumpkins today for a possible side project.  Had fun with these, these are the ones I picked that I liked the most.
Will 3D model some of these out once I flush out some better detailed versions.
