also im going out to eat in a second, but can someone leave a reply explaining how you draw digitally from reference? i'm on a macbook. do you just open it in a window and look back and forth? do you make it a layer and switch it on and off? what do you guys usually do
>>
>>2340728

The best option is having 2 screens and using one for reference with pureref.

If you only have one screen then make a big canvas and use part of it for reference and the other part for painting, then when you're done just C cut it and that's it.

Then the other arm should be pushed out more. It's just not right.... if you can't see it then I don't know how else to explain it to you. In the drawing, she looks like she has the shortest shoulders imaginable, as if they never went outward if you were looking at her front on. It's a simple fix though.
>>
>>2341445
>Then the other arm should be pushed out more
arms/shoulders can move independent of each other

honestly i think there needs to be a shadow showing on those traps, maybe that's what's confusing you. the shoulder could be elevated as well as pushed forward. if it doesn't look right to you, you probably need to look at more refs or draw from life to realize how body can contort in many possible different ways. and what you see/study changes in relation to perspective.

All your materials here look identical and plastic. I would look up some photo references for the materials. I'm not a huge fan of the design, but that's personal taste. It looks fairly consistent with a type of bulky of generic fantasy armour with that really thick trim. The pieces of the pauldron can probably overlap a bit more neatly seeing as they need to slide smoothly over each other for movement.
>>
>>2341483
Yeah i can see I still need to play with my adj layers to pump the contrast. Thanks

>Leg placement feels off
Yah, I think the right rear leg is throwing it off a bit, shouldn't be as close to the foreground as it is. It looks as though it's even with the right foreleg. Also the proportions of the right foreleg don't match up with the left one which also makes it look wonky. The left foreleg is noticeably longer and thicker, that and lacking an ankle.

there are many perspective inconsistency's which leads me to belief that you merely traced the proportions for the bodys from photographs and put Armour and cloth designs on top.

>the shoulder armor on the left guy are two completely different sizes and the apparatus that connects them to the body are two inconsistently aligned cylinders
but then the shoulders and torso are in perspective....
>the waist and pelvic clothing are out of perspective
whilst the shins down are in perspective....

>guy on the right is drawn at a totally different angle based perspective, which for the designs is inconsistent and again hints to tracing shortcuts.
>the poncho on right hand guy is inconsistent with the entire rest of the body its as if one has cut of the mans front chest and belly and into the front hips and pelvis.
>overall line quality is also inconsistent with the level of proportional accuracy
this leads one to think that the drawer has traced and or directly refused to also include/credit their reference as if it were to take away from the finished piece (it does).

another thing that makes it a dead giveaway is that you are avoiding drawing skin and flesh at all costs like its the plague.
almost all artists that reach a sound level of proportional accuracy as seen here ALWAYS show off their ability to draw the human flesh in some aspect, even when fully armored.

Learn the basic proportions of the skull before trying to do a study of one. And remember that everything you paint has to be able to occupy a 3d space, your intuiton should be able to tell if it looks off
Also do master studies of painters that are great and try to pick up on how and why they do things, helped me alot by just doing a few
And dont sign your studies with a cringey signature

haha yes i just traced it over the poses i liked.Was searching for some that'd fit the design. Didnt know it would show that clearly to a trained a, thats baddd

Ill try change them up, thanks for the critique!
i wanna put them in a scene paint them still so prolly should just change the drawing now, cant polish a turd

I dont care really if its traced,. for me its about the design. Like the faces in the other sketches are all traced as well. I dont see why i would want reference them if i can just trace them. i want it to look good tho! So ill def take up your advice, a redline would be appreciated too!

I used to do mostly studies for anatomy yeah, this helped alot in fzd since they dont do any of that there. Perspective we used to do ALOT tho. FZD was an investment, basicly lose a year of your life and get a big loan to get closer to the job you want. You literly dont have a life in there, about 5 hours of sleep a day if you want to compete. After school i just send out hunderds of emails and got this one interview, did an art test and now working a inhouse position. still studying errday after work cus i'm afraid to lose my job to a better guy...

I like your rendering for the most part, but I think you'd benefit a lot from setting things up a bit more before your start painting. It looks a little stiff and lifeless to me as it is. No real expression or movement, just kinda standing there staring at the viewer.
Also I'm sure you're aware, but

i would say nothing is wrong working from a ref, just try not to trace, its lazy and you wont learn as much, if you are lazy, just do it the hard way as you will get better faster, and getting good fast is "better lazy". it will also improve your line quality and ability to draw without refs.

look at any fantasy art that contains armor. that is created by any competent artist that does not work from refs, and i guarantee you they are showing off their ability to display shiny metallic surfaces right next to that of warm flesh skin surfaces.

also, i understand when characters are fully armored like master chief, but thats straying into mecha concept art and not character concept.

The mouth is too far to the right. Everything below her chin appears to have no structure to it and looks flat. The brush stroke texture looks as haphazard as your hatching usually does and adds nothing to help create the illusion of form, in fact it makes a few areas look even flatter.

You're not going to convince me, anon. I have my reasons for why I think it was referenced. Honestly I think it was photobashed. It doesn't matter though, because I don't think that's a big deal in concept art. Concept art isn't about proving yourself as an illustrator, it's about getting a design across as accurately and quickly as possible. I wouldn't have even said anything but for me being confused as to why it mattered to you that anon traced over some photos to get the pose and proportions right but he still drew the parts that mattered on his own, and then you posting a concept piece that looked like it used exactly the same process while calling him out.
tldr, it doesn't really matter.

I wasn't referring to tracing. I just thought it was stupid that he thinks that fullbody armor should show skin or else it's bad design.
>>2343143
Nice job calling out a tracer, but I still think your ideas on "good design" don't really hold any merit. Is a Mecha not also a character? And, what if the full body suit is made of leather, or just partially scifi? By your logic, Deadpool is also a mecha, and so is Spider-man, and midieval knights. Doesn't make any sense. A full bodysuit is a full bodysuit. Some characters need it airtight in order to live. If anything, it's just your personal taste on what you think looks good. IMO, I really like fullbody fantasy designs that cover everything. Why would you think that demonstrates that the artist doesn't understand proportional accuracy?

>ALWAYS show off their ability to draw the human flesh in some aspect, even when fully armored.

Bit of a hyperbole there.

you normally see alot of beginners (sub 5 year mark) draw characters with armor ect covering body limbs.
this is because its easier to draw that kind of thing when compared to the nude body, when older more accustomed artists get a grasp on the body they almost always show off this ability is all i was saying, and though that observation i was able to deem the pictures traced due to the skin hiding with the proportional accuracy.
thats all.

I wrote a little Q/A for imagineFX about using textures in the same way you can use colors. Like, complimentary texture of flesh on rock and the like.

I don't think imagineFX liked my answers. The question was something like "How do I create visually stunning textures?" and rather than do a stupid "Paste a texture on an overlay channel" I went more into the art theory of using textures. Their audience wants simpler, HOW TO tutorials though.

What im trying to say here is contrast and compliments are in everything. I feel like flesh contrast to metal is a bit too easy or blatant of a choice. Find something more creative.

This is the image I painted for em. if anyone is curious.

>>2343384
what are you even talking about. It's not about copying a reference. For that image I used 4-5 reference images to create the final image.

It's not about copying a fucking reference. It's using that reference to fill in the gaps of your brains visual library. Literally every pro artist has reference. Whether its photo, a model, or physical object on the desk.

There is a difference between using a reference and just copying a photo (like Nadar or kr0nz). You really should learn the difference.

The way the tail bends and the foreshortening on it is terrible. Why did you put kinks in it? It also doesn't seem to be on the same plane as her. Watch for tangents too, you have a tangent with literally every single edge of the picture frame.
>>
>>2343879
The heavy and angular outline flattens it a lot and gives a wooden feeling. The interior lines are more fluid and nicer, and show the form better. I would just do it all like that. Careful too of the head and facial features, they are poorly handled and do not relate to the body well. There's also no feeling of weight here. I would figure out what the ground plane is and make her feel like she is grounded instead of floating.

angular outlines work well when what is contained within them is more fluid and organic. try to remember that when you render and color it.

And really push the edges of the outline. good solid lines.

also don't be afraid to use the lasso tool and resize/move features.

also also might be more helpful to start on 15% grey or higher. that background layer might as well be white.
>>

It looks like she's lying on a slight hill. Not necessarily a bad thing.

You make a decent point about the outline, but covering the interior in your shitty Van Gogh tick marks looks awful.
>>
>>2343944
Yeah actually, it does look like she's laying on a small hill.
>>
>>2343940
I don't like what was done with the outlines on the hair/head. There are too many complex shapes up there, while the original sketch had a very smooth, slick feel to it. Also, the shading on the breasts/shoulder/neck/face in the new picture is very weird in comparison to the style of the sketch itself. Like I said before, the original picture had a smoother, cleaner look to it, but the current shading looks jagged, unconfident, and really out of place. Using big lines that don't properly follow the contour of the body is not a great way of crosshatching.
>>

>You make a decent point about the outline, but covering the interior in your shitty Van Gogh tick marks looks awful.
well ideally the lines would be much thinner so the effect would be greater but this was just to illustrate a point.

If you want to show someone what the proper way to go about making a good drawing is, you should probably be prepared to make a good drawing. The hatching in >>2343940 looks out of place, and it really wouldn't really help the original artist understand the value of making nice hatch marks to show form and shape.

What is anon meant to take from this? Supposedly this was all about the line work, and the linework looks less confident on yours than the original. Like, look at the line on the top of the forearm just below the boob, why is it all bumpy? Those lumps don't seem to be indicating any actual anatomy there. And I don't see where you increased the contrast between angular outlines and organic interiors. I don't know what this is supposed to be demonstrating other than some rendering. If I wanted to give an example of sharp outlines contrasting with organic interiors I would've just used Mucha or Leyndecker as an example, because this example doesn't make it very clear to me.

Can I please get some feedback? Particularly on the face.
>>
>>2344624
The breasts are too far apart. The face is fine. You should really start learning construction and drawing through the figure soon though, relying on contour drawing is only going to get you so far, and definitely will not translate well if you try to learn more anatomy. What you have here is passable, but there's absolutely no anatomy in the shoulder and upper chest area. You'll want to study up on anatomy, but unless you understand construction, you won't be able to understand anatomy guides, or at least it'll be way harder than need be.

would suggest not starting with such a bright white and working up to it, it gives it more depth that way. not to say the final piece shouldn't have white just that you should work up to it just like in trad oil painting. I'm liking the concept though. you can just turn down the brightness with the curves tool and then continue highlighting on the darker base like this

also resize your image before posting haha, this ones about 2000 pixels wide which some people find annoying

>>
>>2344791
Your skulls are nice, do some more but try spending more time working out the line art (cleaning it up and getting it more accurate). Those are great sketches though.

With the color studies you've got, a few pointers:
When you're doing movie stills, you should use the entire shot, not just a section. Even if you're just blocking in color and leaving it untouched, it's a good habit to get into. You learn a lot about composition and get into good work habits. Now if you want to crop it in some way to focus in on something that's fine but stop that blob bullshit.

Your colors are very off. You're getting close and eyeballing it, sure, but you don't know your values or forms well enough to really make sense of what's going on. Value is an important part of learning to paint in color, so brush up on that shit.

I'd suggest starting with value drawings of black and white photos. Try for accuracy (of line and tone) with these. After that you can take a color ref and paint it in greyscale, just a small sketch before you restart and try again in color.

Try that stuff and you'll see some awesome progress if you work hard. Good luck

It's hard to read any forms properly in this. If you were to put a filter over this to make it black and white you'd mainly see midtones, but very few dark and light values. Those values are extremely important for creating depth and separating some of the forms that are bleeding together currently (like the hair and the right side of the face, or the eyes, the chin and neck, neck and hair, etc..)

Midtones are a good place to start but you need to make sure you branch out more and put in those darks and lights. Do some value studies.

You also need to work a lot more on your blending while keeping forms together properly. Pay attention to hard and soft shadows and how they affect your perception of form.

Yeah man. It helps to let people know where you're going with something in your first post along with your picture. If you don't mention that you're going for a certain look, you're not going to end up getting the critique you need. It's assumed here that if you don't specify, you're going for realism.

Whether you do those things for this piece or not, keep that crit in mind for other studies.

idk if it is because you scanned it but you should learn about light a little more. for example you've shaded it so about half the room is reflecting 0% value pure white light which doesnt make sense. And the table, you are trying to communicate that some how the top is reflecting the same amount of light as the side. I'm assuming you are drawing a sunlight room, the sun is a very powerful light source and will generally light up the room evenly, with a highlight on the floor in the shape of the window.

So yeah, learn about light.

I guess some of the whites could be brighter but you also need to work on likeness. use the lasso tool and adjust what you already have it doesn't look like clint eastwood. also is that clint eastwood? or just some old guy. either way it doesn't particularly look like him.

>>2345534
> use the lasso tool and adjust what you already have it doesn't look like clint eastwood.

But wouldn't the lasso tool hinder my learning instead of redrawing it myself?
>>
>>2345537
not really. it's digital. if you want to learn to draw do traditional.
>>
>>2345537
>>2345541
i take that back. try to draw over mistakes if you can. the things wrong in that drawing weren't so egregious that you needed to lasso, but if you need to resize things or it's early on and the likeness is there but it's misaligned just use that tool.
>>
>>2345537
Don't listen to Brian, he just wants to look important. Your painting already looked way more like Clint Eastwood than his terrible paintover. Just keep working and double check against the reference, that will teach you all you need to know way better than trying to get opinions here. And while I would recommend repainting things manually for the most part, there are times you can get away with using the lasso tool or something for a small adjustment, like something you drew really well but it happens to be slightly too far to the side or something and you just need to move it over. Keep going, anon.

I fucking hate gesture. If there's one goddamn thing that I can't get the hang of, it's gesture. I don't know why, but it frustrates me so bad that it makes me want to quit drawing, and I have several times. I've tried so many different methods, like Vilppu, and Hampton, and whoever else, but it's like I can never consistently do good gesture drawings.

These are some figures I've drawn since yesterday. Most of them are contour-style stuff, but you can see some feint gesture lines in a few of them. I can generally do decent figures when I've got a reference, but trying to create gesture from memory is so hard for me. It feels so goddamn awkward.
