A digital painting i finished on 26-08-2013
This is a digital painting that I’ve been working on and I am quite satisfied with the outcome.
It took me maybe about 4/5 hours to complete, I might make a walkthrough/tutorial of this one to show my process.. it’s actually fairly simple but still I think it could help for the real noobies.
The model is Chelsea Christian (httt://chelseachristian.com) and this is the picture I used as a reference: http://scottworldwide.deviantart.com/art/Chelsea-2-304018239
A new drawing/painting I’ve made.. I have become much more aware of my weaknesses but also continue to improve.
The things that frustrate me are: anatomy (i should have this down by now), shading (this is a huge problem) and linework.. I would like to get rid of all those lines because it makes my stuff look cartoonish and I’d like to become a digital artist who mainly does semi realistic paintings.
Then there are things I am pretty satisfied with: my sense of color (I feel like my intuition is pretty good), my increasing knowledge of drawing/editing software, my capability of making something and improving along the way without any real schooling on the particular subject and perhaps my passion to keep on doing what i like no matter what anyone says!
Now onto the technical aspect.. I used my brand new Wacom Bamboo!! Yes i have a new tablet! Woohooo! This is a enormous improvement over my old Wacom Sapphire (dating back to 2002). I’d also like to note that I use Pixelmator for my drawing/painting and often iPhoto for any last minute easy color editing.
