This is a speedpaint I made about a week ago, I used a screencap from the movie “Stoker” as a reference.. the girl in my drawing is called “India” in the movie, hence the name. You should also check out the film it’s absolutely amazing! (If you’re into psychological thrillers)
Anyways.. I trief a different technique for a change, normally i would use lineart as a base for my drawing but this time i did without and this was actually the first time I’ve tried this. I have had very positive feedback on it.
This was the original one but I’ve been playing around with color a bit and I really liked this version myself:
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.
